Having lived in Chattanooga all of his life, Charlie knows Chattanooga and its people! He attended the relatively new at the time Normal Park School in North Chattanooga (now a premier magnet school), then Baylor School, and Tulane University in New Orleans. He has always had a rich sense of history and place and love of the South, which probably emanates from being so aware of the Civil War history in and around Chattanooga that he was raised with as well as his New Orleans days. That is a city that before and after Katrina will always be in his heart.
Charlie’s father and the founder of the company met and married Florence Holzer from New Orleans in the late 1920′s. Flora Harkey, Charlie’s wife, is also a native New Orleanian and Chattanooga transplant. They have four children and 10 grandchildren. Son Will Walldorf is a professor at Wake Forest University. Daughter Polly Walldorf Tran is a commercial designer and mother of 2 sons in Boston. Sara Walldorf McNabb is a mother of 3 in Roswell, Georgia (a Realtor with the company prior to her marriage). Nathan Walldorf, a founder of Young Life in Guatemala, is a third generation Realtor with the firm beginning in 2005. Nathan has 2 sons. Nathan and Charlie are the father-son team approach who combine youth and experience.
Charlie enjoys traveling, entertaining, Dixieland jazz, water sports, gardening, swimming, snow skiing, fishing, hiking, road biking, playing with grand children and anything out of doors.
