Charisma Marin began her real estate career as a site acquisition and zoning specialist charged with finding locations for cellular sites to place antennae on buildings,church steeples, and existing cellular towers as well as the building of cellular towers in Connecticut and Florida. This afforded her the opportunity to gain significant knowledge of how to work directly and negotiate with city governments, planning and zoning departments, as well as mayors, town boards, city attorneys and public utility departments, including fire and police. Some projects resulted in revenue being directed back into city coffers to rebuild fire stations and buy fire trucks. Her negotiation skills about contracts, zoning and property construction were well honed during business dealings with the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Transportation and other public officials. She quickly rose through the ranks and was recognized as a leader in the field. She loved negotiation and the job, but to pursue a family she decided to become a Realtor. While real estate can be a demanding job, she previously worked an 80 hour week job with significant travel which was not family friendly.
Charisma has a Bachelor’s degree in International Business from the University of Tampa and a Master’s in Global Management. During college, she interned at a money exchange in Brazil, studied Spanish in Venezuela and has travelled throughout the world. Her keen recognition of the large number of International Buyers in our local market and the cultural diversity of Central Florida has been a huge impact on her earning the prestigious CIPS designation or Certified International Property Specialist. She continues to learn about different cultures and the services to meet the needs of globally based clients.
Annually, Charisma completes more than the required 14 hours of continuing education courses on real estate law and the principles of practice. She takes many more courses on hot topics or courses to best help her clients. In addition, Charisma was compelled to complete extra designations and certifications offered by the National Association of Realtors and several institutes to provide her clients important and timely knowledge of the industry.
