More about Charlie Ritt

About Me

My decision to sell real estate came shortly after I purchased my first home. With my mother's assistance as my Realtor, the process was very exciting and I enjoyed the experience of searching, buying, and now, owning a home. My background is in Advertising with a B.A. from Iowa State University. I worked as a graphic designer in the marketing department for a local NASCAR speedway, after which I started designing on a free lance basis. I later took my skills with graphics to the printing business working for a printer in Edina. Getting my real estate license and joining my mother was an easy decision for me. Combining my technical skills with her 16 years of experience seemed like an obvious winning combination. Our goal is to give our clients the highest level of service they deserve. It is my desire to help others enjoy the same positive real estate experience I had. I currently reside in south Minneapolis and add to the Ritt Group my knowledge of the Cities in combination with the south metro area where I grew up. We invite you to challenge us in showing you what service really means while buying or selling your home.
