When Chas walks into a room, the energy changes instantaneously. Everything seems brighter, different and exciting, as if anything can, and probably will, happen. She’s a stylish visionary with a discerning eye and a fearless taste for adventure which leads her to, what else. . .remodeling homes! (8 of them and counting) A Madison native, UW-Madison graduate and current Shorewood Hills homeowner, she has in-depth knowledge of the market. She forms strong relationships with her buyers and sellers by listening, connecting and problem solving in any situation from before and after the sale. Chas manages every transaction as if her reputation depends on it—because it does.


We were looking for a second home in Madison, and we were decidedly undecided — about neighborhood, style, vintage, price. In other words, we presented a problem for any realtor. Chas was charmingly unfazed. She made suggestions, was responsive to our wishes, was flexible and truly brilliant at  identifying houses we might like and providing us with answers to our arcane questions. For example, how many agents can hunt down the provenance of a ceiling tile and the likelihood of asbestos content? She located a wonderful house for us, but her professionalism didn’t end after closing. She recommended architects and designers and took care of the house and yard until we could move in. Throughout the process, she displayed grace as well as great good humor, She was unfailingly available even when she was on vacation. Chas Martin is a true gem.—Casey and Len Damme

Chas Martin did a fantastic job as our agent. Every step of the way, she was responsive, provided great information, and made us feel comfortable. I have to say, I had never done business with anyone who responded as quickly and thoroughly to my questions as Chas. If you’re seeking a real estate  professional (who is also super nice!) to find or sell your home, call Chas!

I met Chas through a mutual friend. We talked about selling my house for months before the date actually came. She was consistent in her communication but never pushy. When it was time to sell, she was ready with comps and a hit list of things to do to make the sale. I had an above price, cash offer the first day and Chas managed all aspects of the transaction like a pro. She talked me through any concerns and was able to negotiate all aspects with a happy outcome. Would recommend her expertise, professionalism, warmth and work ethic 110%.


For fun, Chas enjoys spending time on Madison’s lakes with her family and friends. She boats, wakeboards, and bikes to the Memorial Union to sip a beer lakeside while her two daughters have ice cream. Weekends find her walking the Dane County Farmers’ Market in summer or cheering at Badger football games in the fall. Chas is passionate about travel and has had adventures all over the world. Giving to her community is also important to Chas. As a board member of the Clean Lakes Alliance, she works to preserve the natural areas that help make Madison such a wonderful place to live.
