About Me

There is nothing better than having a broker with over 15 years of certified residential real estate appraiser experience as well! That is what Charlie brings to the table. It is evident in how he is able to price properties properly to not only maximize the profit margin for his clients and make certain they sell quickly, but also to help his buyers realize their dream of purchasing a home in a competitive market and not feeling like they over-payed.


His additional concentration in appraising and helping buyers and sellers with luxury, high-end real estate in the Lincoln Park, Bucktown, Lakeview, Roscoe Village, Wrigleyville, Gold Coast, Streeterville, and all other areas in the city has made him a great choice for any one looking to buy or sell any type or style of property. Charlie has also been lucky enough to work with many major celebrities, professional musicians and athletes as well and his great knowledge and professionalism is why he is trusted with all the people he works with!


Charlie also has extensive knowledge of rehabbing properties and has put that experience to the test with many clients successfully to help them maximize their profit on their investments! Starting out almost 20 years ago, Charlie invested and renovated condo's in the River North and Gold Coast areas, and then turned to the Bucktown neighborhood over a dozen years ago to complete his own renovation of his home where he currently resides with his wife and 2 children.

With all of his experience as a Real Estate professional, along with a bachelor's degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing from Loyola University, Charlie is ready, willing and able to make sure you will have the best real estate experience of your life! Whether it be first-time home buyer's, retirees selling their home to down-size, experienced investor's, builder/developer's, or any other reason to buy or sell, Charlie is there to assist you with your real estate needs! Please refer to his testimonials from past clients to see what others have said about their great experience's!
