Charlie has helped us sell two homes and purchase two homes, he was up front and honest in all aspects of our dealings. They just don't get any better than Charlie!
Charlie helped our family navigate the challenging market conditions of Boulder to find our first home. He expertly steered through the complexities of the home buying process, while also gave us lots of room to make our own decisions and develop our preferences. He always assured us that the most important thing was to find a house that we would be happy with in our budget, rather than being desperate. That patience proved invaluable as we found a home we love.
Charlie helped us buy our house in Fourmile Canyon in Boulder. He is extremely knowledgeable about mountain homes and we couldn't have done it without his help, he is absolutely amazing. Very personable and a veritable font of local history near Salina, Fourmile Canyon, and the foothills near Boulder. Thanks so much Charlie!
Charlie took us through the buying process years ago, and recently the selling process. He made both experiences easy. He was eloquent in dealing with the other parties in the deals and gave us solid advice when we asked for it.
Charlie was very knowledgeable of the local market and help us price the unit accordingly. He knew that there was basically nothing else on the market that was similar.
We sold it on the first day.
His presence helped the closing go without any problems.,
Charlie was an absolute pleasure to work with. He understood our situation and what we were looking for and guided us through the process that resulted in us getting an amazing house for a great price. He also steered us to a mortgage broker that found us a good mortgage. Closing was a breeze. Thanks Charlie!

Charlie is a true professional with proven understanding and expertise in the Boulder market. As many know, the Boulder area is one of the most competitive markets and it can be a wild ride. Charlie maintained a calm and confident approach and kept our best interest in mind as we were looking for the right home. I would highly recommend Charlie to anyone who's looking for an experienced professional as they are looking to buy or sell a home!

Charlie was a huge asset as we bought our first house in a very seller-friendly market. We visited nearly 30 houses to determine which neighborhood and style we really wanted. Charlie gave us great advice about what to look for in a house and identified potential issues that would affect resale values in the future.

Once we had an offer accepted he was in constant communication with both us and the sellers to ensure that the list of inspection items were addressed. When an issue came up on our lender's side, he jumped in to work with the lender and sellers on a resolution.

Charlie has a great way of providing experienced advice but leaving us to make the final decision. If I was to buy or sell in the future, I would certainly go to Charlie first.
Charlie helped my buy my first home during the fall of 2015. He was recommended by a friend, and did a WONDERFUL job. I highly recommend Charlie. Charlie walked me through every step of the process, and also catered to my desire for detail (I asked a lot of questions). He was always cool and collected, which I really appreciated (no used-car-salesman vibe), and never pushed anything on me. He made many recommendations which have all proven to be spot on. I couldn't be happier with the house that we found! I would highly recommend Charlie to anyone.
Charlie has helped us to find a home since 2012, and we finally bought the the home we really like and closed the deal in June 2014.

We are super picky buyers. At beginning we didn't even know exactly what we like, so we told Charlie to send us all the house info around the neighborhoods that we may like. Then Charlie started to do the showing with us one by one. We probably have seen over 50 houses across Boulder, Louisville, and Superior cities. We kept changing our minds along the way, because every house is unique and has goods and bads, and my wife and I always have different opinions and preferences. However, Charlie has always been consistently patient with us and provide his professional, honest, and neutral opinions. I really appreciate that because that helped us to make the right decisions and resolves many conflicts between I and my wife.

More importantly, when Charlie identify some defects of the house, he wouldn't hesitate shows us right away, and that saved us a lot of time. He wouldn't rush us to close the deal even though we have dragged him for such a long time. I have to apologize to him about this, but buying a house is a huge deal for us. He also watched out any potential issues for us and provide good advice, so we didn't make mistake. He is someone who I can really trust.

I really appreciate Charlies professional, positive, and patient attitude. I definitely recommend him to all the home buyers and sellers.
