When we first met Charlie, he took the time to really get to know us and understand what we were looking for in a home. As we were first-time home buyers, Charlie sat down with us and gave an overview of the entire process, and patiently answered follow-up questions. Charlie is well versed in understanding different ways to structure an offer and compete in a seller’s market; this was especially useful during our search as most homes were off the market in less than a week, escalating well beyond the list price with multiple offers waiving all contingencies.
Throughout the home search and buying process, Charlie was proactive and very easy to communicate with. In addition to being readily available at a moment’s notice to tour homes, he was quick to respond to texts and emails. With many years of experience in the industry and with the local market, he was extremely knowledgeable and offered great insight (e.g., considerations for potential or required renovations, livability / growing a family, home value growth over time, etc.). At closing, Charlie worked closely with our lender and the seller’s agent to ensure everything went smoothly, often going above and beyond to find a solution to any issue that arose. We were able to close at asking, keeping all of our contingencies. Charlie even helped us negotiate a home warranty and several repairs on the home.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Charlie. We would without a doubt work with him again in the future and will recommend him to all our friends and family in the area.
