Charlene Placko is a proud member of the Eugene Association of Realtors. Living in Pleasant Hill, she loves working with properties with large acreage in the outlying areas of Eugene and Springfield. Having a farm herself, she understands the needs of those shopping for or selling farms or horse properties. Barns, shops and outbuildings are her favorites and she understands their value! Not only is she familiar with large properties, she also understands the needs of families with children as she and her husband have three children of their own and she knows the unique challenges families with children face – with or without acreage.

Charlene has a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies and a minor in Sociology. She has been married eleven years to her husband David and together they have three very active children involved in scouts and sports. She is a Cub Scout leader and loves cheering for her children’s baseball teams and shuttling them to and from all their activities. Spending time with her family, helping at her children’s school, doing crafts, cooking, baking, horseback riding, and camping with family and horses are just some of her favorite activities when she’s not tirelessly working to insure you find the right home or the right buyer for your home.


Charlene Placko, ABR - Broker at Emerald Valley Real Estate

I know Charlene both personally & professionally; and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. She works very hard and it is obvious how much she cares about her clients. — Chris, Real Estate Pro

We used Charlene Placko as our Realtor and she did an excellent job for us. She also helped us to get a loan to buy the home. We could not have asked for a better Agent. — Buyer, James

Trying to buy your first home can be overwhelming, stressful and very emotional! We had tried to buy a home with another Realtor at first, but after two very disappointing outcomes, we found Charlene and couldn’t have asked for a better agent than her. She’s helpful, personable, professional and knows her stuff. She gave us helpful advice, and was honest every step along the way with what to expect, which is what made this experience so easy, and stress free. We were nothing but pleased with Charlene and her dedication to find us the perfect first home. We wholeheartedly recommend her as a trustworthy and knowledgeable Realtor. — Buyer, Andrea

Charlene was great to work with, patient with us while we were undecided and hesitant and then very quick to respond when we were ready to move. I would recommend Charlene to other buyers. THANK YOU Charlene! — Kelly, Client, Buyer

The whole process seemed really overwhelming for us; we didn’t know where to start. I sent an email to Charlene with a huge list of questions. I was really surprised when I got a detailed response back in less than an hour…the rest is history! Charlene is very responsive and never left us wondering what was happening. She connected us with a wonderfully experienced mortgage broker who made financing a breeze. We are so excited to be in our new home. The whole process from start to finish took less than two months…we were shocked! Buying a home can be stressful. Charlene will do everything in her power to make your experience memorable without adding additional pressure. — Client Buyer

I just love Charlene, she has done everything in her power to help us find a home and we are close to signing papers to finalize the home we want. She has been really patient and diligent and when I was getting discouraged she really reassured me. My other real real estate lady before Charlene just kind of quit helping me, but not Charlene. I wouldn’t go with anyone else! — Buyer, Joanie

I’ve worked with Charlene recently in partnership with her as a buyer’s agent. I can tell you that as a mortgage lender, Charlene was extremely helpful to me in supplying whatever was needed in a timely and efficient manner to assist us in making sure things went smoothly and closed on schedule. I really appreciated her “can do” attitude in putting the transaction together, and follow through in making sure everything was completed properly and on time. I really appreciate how she keeps in communication, and her client seemed to feel well informed and taken care of. I would highly recommend Charlene to anyone that is interested in working with a diligent, caring agent! — Jennifer, Real Estate Pro

Working with Charlene was a surprising bonus. In today’s economy, it seems everyone is out to better themselves, but I found so much more with Charlene. She was thoughtful, patient, friendly, and a great advocate for me as a first time buyer. I would recommend her to anyone. If you want someone who will go out of their way to get things done, and make you feel comfortable while making big decisions, give Charlene a call. — Heather, Client, Buyer

We enjoyed working with Charlene and she has such a good sense of humor that no matter what we saw we found something good about every house even if it had the WHOLE kitchen missing, cabinets, etc. She was just such a joy to work with. — Donna Client, Buyer

I have been extremely pleased with Charlene. She was always available, very accommodating, and watched very closely to find a property that was a perfect fit. The bonus is that she is a lovely person and very enjoyable to be around! — B, Client, Buyer

Charlene was VERY helpful while we were moving to Oregon from Arizona and buying a house at the same time. She did walk through’s on houses and took videos for us since we couldn’t be there to do it with her. It really made buying a house a little more stress-free than it otherwise could have been. — Theresa, Client, Buyer
