As a kid, Charlene Bayes dreamed of being a professional baseball player. For real! Although she was born in Grand Forks, ND, she grew up near the ocean in southern California where the LA Dodgers rule. No wonder A League of Their Own is one of her favorite movies. In high school, she was a successful student-athlete, who excelled in history, English and typing (she’s super fast) while also running track, playing varsity tennis, and killing it as shortstop and pitcher in softball.

Today, Charlene is happy to call Virginia home after raising her kids as a military family who moved around a lot — 10 homes in 18 years. She especially loves hopping in the car and discovering the quaint small towns in VA and West Virginia, as well as the rich history of iconic Washington DC.

A two-time breast cancer survivor, Charlene is a warrior who is energized by daily walks (10k steps minimum). As she walks, you can bet she’s listening to a Tom Ferry, Darren Hardy, or Sharon Srivatsaa podcast. She’s also an avid reader who loves Madonna, the Beach Boys, and Wolf Trap. Her guilty pleasure? Catching an episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Home and family are her north stars. Charlene has deep Norwegian/Irish/Swedish roots and she grew up surrounded by loving, caring people. She’s committed to giving others that same sense of comfort and care. In fact, the golden rule —to treat others as you would like to be treated — is the credo she lives by. If she can do something for somebody, she will. A realtor for nearly 20 years, she considers it an honor to help others find a place to call home. Charlene says joining Speicher Group was a natural fit because they genuinely care about their agents and their clients. We may be biased, but the Dodgers really missed a golden opportunity. Their loss is most definitely our gain.
