About Charmaine Hooper

I am an ex pro soccer player who represented Canada on the national team for all of 2 decades. After soccer, I found myself being drawn toward real estate and hospitality. Very strange, since I studied neither during my 5 years at North Carolina State University. I work a lot with kids. That might explain why the home is kid friendly. In whatever spare time I have, I volunteer at Meals on Wheels in Waco.

Charmaine Hooper purchased this house in 2011

Why Charmaine Hooper chose Waco

We were so attracted to this property simply because of its beauty, character and great bones. It has undergone an incredible transformation, thanks to the HGTV stars of Fixer Upper. I had no intentions of being on a TV show and definitely neither did my husband. This house had been transformed from "crappy to happy" in a matter of a very short period of time and the fact that the home is located only 7 min. from Baylor University and only 5 minutes to the Silos and downtown makes it a great place to stay for any events around town.

What makes this house unique

Upon entering the home, one gets a sense of a comfortable home away from home with the open kitchen and dining area, perfect gathering place for everyone while the chef creates. The 5 bedrooms make it possible for large groups to stay together in the same place at a fraction of the cost of hotel rooms. The wrap around porch is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the day in the early morning or late afternoon. Also, the open grassy area makes it possible to play ball or have a party. Check in is 3pm and check out is 11am the latest. Please check with the owner first to see if early check in or late check out is available for your specified dates.

Wonderful Girls Trip!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Beautiful home.

Charmaine is the sweetest person I have ever rented from.

She went above and beyond with every detail.

This was a girls trip for 5 of us.

It was 4 of the girls birthday's within a month. We ordered a cake and had decorations

sent to the house. Charmaine had the cake picked up and she decorated the table for us and had the cake set up as a surprise from me for the birthday girls.

Within a mile or 2 of everything! We went to Magnolia Markent, Magnolia Ware House, Magnolia Table, antique shops, the suspension bridge, the Dr. Pepper Museum, many nice restaurants, and a day trip to San Antonio. We had a packed 3 days!!

Again, I can not say enough about the Gorman House and especially Charmaine!!!

A wonderful house for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

As huge fans of Fixer Upper, I was very excited to find this house available. Charmaine Hooper is a wonderful host, and very helpful. We had a surprise 70th birthday family gathering and things worked perfectly. We also took the 2 1/2 hour Waco Tour with our guide David and driver Tim. It was fantastic! Charmaine was very attentive to our questions and comments. The house was so much fun! Thank you for a great time!

Fun Girls' Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and all the extra touches that made our stay feel like home. We had room to gather, play games, and talk! It was easy to get around to all the places we wanted to go. Thankful to Charmaine for making helpful information so available by texting us to see how it was going! I am coming back in October and can't wait.

Perfect House for a Very Special Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was the perfect spot for our annual girl's weekend, celebrating our friendship of forty years! We took full advantage of the amazing kitchen, talked for hours in the spacious living area and enjoyed our morning coffee on the picturesque porch. The only time we left all weekend was to go out for dinner on Saturday night! A wonderful time was had by all!

We were extremely happy with the accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We were not at the house much...touring! The only complaint was the upstairs bathroom shower curtain was awkward...seemed to suck into the person taking a shower....maybe replace the plastic liner with cloth😀
