Charissa Prince-Ferdinand


My real estate career began in New York city where I worked both as a licensed agent and the listings manager for City Connections Realty.  Now a happy Philadelphia resident, I vividly remember falling in love with the spirit of industry, the thriving arts scene, and the historic charm of this city.   My clients would probably describe me as gregarious, knowledgeable and efficient. My tireless devotion to helping clients reach their goals (whether that be buying or selling a home) is evident in every transaction.  An active member of the ballroom community, when I am not out selling homes you can find me dancing!  Follow @chateauxbycharissa on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date on the best values and hottest properties in Philadelphia. 

Welcome to my website. I am eager to serve you.

Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Charissa was very responsive and easy to ask questions at any stage. She got back to us quickly with answers and if she did not know- she told us so- then found the answer."

"Charissa was very courteous and professional throughout the process of selling the house. She responded to our questions promptly and in a timely manner and was very pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend Charissa to any of my friends who may be selling their home in the future."

  -Debra, Client

"As a recent first-time home buyer, I am grateful to have had Charissa as my realtor! In addition to being highly responsive and reliable, she was personable and took the time to get to know me and understand my needs and interests. She was also very helpful during negotiations, advocating on my behalf and pushing for the best possible outcomes. Additionally, Charissa is a wealth of knowledge and resources and helped walk me through the process, providing answers to my many questions and connecting me to other professionals at every step. Overall, I was very pleased with my experience working with Charissa and would highly recommend them for anyone in need of a realtor! "

  -Alex McNeil, Client

"Despite not being as familiar with the surrounding counties to Philadelphia, she was a quick study and a wealth of information and resources when we were looking for homes and putting in offers. Charissa did a fantastic job advocating for us during negotiations. She was a great communicator and very easy to get in touch with. She had some vacation planned during our process but she made sure we were connected with a colleague in her absence. I highly recommend Charissa to anyone looking for a home especially first time homebuyers!"

Elfant Wissahickon Realty

Two passions of mine are real estate and dance, (three if you count my cat, Leyla). I stumbled into real estate while inquiring about a rental in NYC, and through a comedy of errors (I can fill you in over coffee when we meet), I became an agent and I absolutely love it! Being part of this world allows me to help you, buy, sell, or rent your home sweet home. I won’t quit until you have the perfect fit.

I hold professionalism and building relationships based on trust as my highest priority. Buying or selling your home is an emotional experience no matter what and I am here to make those bumps as smooth as possible. It is important to me that you see your home not only through an emotional lens, but also as an empowered and educated client. I am your trusted advisor.

I fell in love with Philly’s spirit of industry, thriving arts scene, and historic charm. I left NYC and have been putting the queen in Queen Village for the past 8 years! When I am not touring homes, consulting on getting a home listing ready, or keeping closings on track, you will find me with my dancing shoes on. In my past life, I was the manager of Society Hill Dance Academy, and have continued my love of all types of dance over the years. I’m often spotted anywhere you’ll find burlesque or cutting the rug at Ballroom Concierge. Hitting the town also involves a hang with friends at Tattooed Mom or ordering too much sushi at Fat Salmon (wait, can you ever order too much sushi?).

Come say hi to me at an open house, give me a call or drop me an email or text. I am here to help and can not wait to meet and get started!
