Originally from the UK, Charlotte has lived in New Jersey for 30 years, relocating from overseas in 1988. Realizing early on that there are remarkable differences between England and the United States, she co-wrote a book about relocating to New Jersey titled Moving to and Living in New Jersey. This book was successfully sold to relocation companies, real estate agencies and many of the area’s pharmaceutical companies. Using her background as an author and communicator, she began to work as a consultant. In this role, she gained an excellent reputation for helping families adjust to the moving process and transition effectively into a new community. She also led seminars in cross-cultural training for newly relocating families, a subject she is personally familiar with.
By 2000, Charlotte attained her real estate license and worked as a referral agent for many years. She has been a valuable asset for those who are buying, selling and renting properties since 2011 when she became a full-time sales associate. Her decision to join Turpin in 2014 was based on their outstanding support system at every level and the firm’s superior marketing resources and techniques. In addition to selling real estate, Charlotte works closely with relocation companies where she specializes in finding rental properties for newly transferred employees.
As a former resident of the Bernardsville area for over two decades, Charlotte knows the Somerset Hills and New-York commuter towns extremely well. Charlotte now lives in Spring Lake and is a member of the Ocean/Monmouth Board, making her your Jersey Shore professional too. She has her finger on the local pulse, making her a true expert in anything real estate-related. Coupled with her relocation experience and an incredible work ethic, Charlotte’s skill set is ideally suited for residential real estate.
Rely on Charlotte’s proven experience, close attention to detail and unwavering diligence as she helps you buy or sell a home. Her professional philosophy states “No one will work harder than me to help you achieve your goals,” and that attitude has won her a legion of repeat clients. Charlotte welcomes your call or visit to the Chatham Office.

Charlotte and the Turpin Real Estate team took over a listing for a home that had already been on the market for over a year. She was immediately very honest regarding the listing price and made three other specific recommendations--not expensive ones either--that brought buyers back to the listing. From the time the house was relisted, we went to contract with a buyer in less than three weeks. She also was immensely helpful during the inspection and closing process. I would highly recommend her to future sellers in the Somerset Hills area. Well done Charlotte!!

We have bought a home and sold a home using Charlotte as our trusted realtor. She is engaged, knowledable and honest. When buying and selling homes, Charlotte kept us informed, solved problems and kept the process moving forward. I would definitly recommend working with Charlotte for your real estate needs.

Charlotte was a big help. As first-time home buyers, the process was new and daunting, and she took the time to make sure we understood it all. She brought up a lot of points for us to consider, made some great suggestions, and was very thorough. I would definitely recommend using Charlotte if you are looking to buy (or sell) a home. She's great at what she does!

I have had the pleasure of working with Charlotte on three separate occasions. Most recently she helped with sell my home in Far Hills. Her expertise, kindness, attention to detail and professionalism made for a successful experience. I recommend Charlotte without hesitation.

From her first walk-through to get acquainted with our home, to the day we closed, Charlotte was amazing! She gave us extremely useful advice on how to effectively market our property as well as how best to showcase its charm. We were also very pleased with all marketing efforts done by Charlotte and Turpin Realtors. When dealing with her clients as well as her colleagues, Charlotte is extremely friendly yet professional and gets all work done efficiently. When I asked for something to be done, or when it should be done, Charlotte already had it covered! Not only did she sell our house in North Jersey but also found us our beautiful, new South Jersey home. We couldn't have asked for a better agent in both transactions...Charlotte is our #1 vote for a New Jersey Real Estate Agent!

Charlotte is the consummate professional. On very short notice, Charlotte actively engaged, from visiting the home (we ultimately purchased) the first time all the way through closing. She demonstrated excellent knowledge buying new construction and what to look for/ask for. Her advice regarding inspection company's, repairs and remediation's as well as final walk through details were masterful. To be honest, we separated from our first realtor and sought out Charlotte as she was the buyers agent on the home we sold. She left that strong of an impression. She is fair, level headed and communicates based on her experience. No hard sells. She is also extremely personable and a pleasure to be around. Charlotte was a true partner. We would seek Charlotte out, without hesitation, if we ever moved again.

Charlotte Drinkwater recently helped my family sell an apartment. With her help, we got an offer the first day the apartment went on the market and accepted one of several offers in less than a week. The offer we accepted was for significantly more than our asking price. Through the entire process Charlotte was utterly competent, easy to get a hold of (I live out of state), and a pleasure to work with. She solved all of the problems that arose along the way. I have no complaints and recommend her without reservation.

It was an honor and a privilege to work with Charlotte Drinkwater. She is honest, hard working, detail oriented and conscientious. She handles sensitive matters with grace and professionalism. Charlotte has your best interests at heart and gets the job done. We could not be happier in our beautiful home—the perfect fit. Charlotte is an angel in disguise. Thank you!

Charlotte, and her co-worker Lynn, were very responsive. They always responded to a phone call, text or email almost immediately. We had an open line of communication and they kept me well informed throughout the process. Their recommendations on painting, repairs and staging helped to expedite the sale of our home. We had multiple offers within days of the listing and were able to sell at above our asking price. This was not an easy process for us to go thru, as we were selling our family home of 24 years, but Charlotte was very understanding and never pressured us in any way. She and Lynn were extremely professional and I would highly recommend them.
