Learn more about me & my amazing team below.

Charles Widmeier

Born and raised in St. Petersburg, I happily call Tampa Bay home. I married my high-school sweetheart, Jennifer, and we have five beautiful children that I adore. Family comes first and I love enjoying the outdoors together.

I am passionate about mortgages! The journey of working my way up the ladder from an entry-level position to an account executive has taught me many skills and birthed a passion to help clients achieve their dreams. In 2005, I started in the mortgage industry learning every aspect of the loan process. This experience has taught me that a strong work ethic, excellent communication skills, and dedication for this business are the recipe for success. I understand that this can be one of the largest financial decisions one can make in one’s lifetime. I am also confident that I can choose the right programs for each individual situation to make this the most successful homeownership experience. As a Sr. Loan Originator with Caliber Home Loans, clients can be assured that I have the experience and expertise to see the mortgage process through from beginning to end. This is not just a transaction to me, but a long term relationship that I take very seriously.

Lila U.

I was referred to Charlie by my sister. She described him as knowledgeable, trustworthy…simply incredible! I agree. He was very responsive and navigated me through the home buying process. I would be remiss if I left out James Marks, Charlie’s teammate….who was absolutely phenomenal, as well. I would highly recommend using Charlie and James of the Mortgage Firm.


Rongette L.

Charles was great he constantly kept me informed. I work with him on a daily bases and why I chose him to do my refinance. He worked very hard to make things happen and thought outside of the box. And had a great experience definitely recommend him as a lender.
