As a California wine country real estate broker with over 25 years of experience, Chuck has helped hundreds of people find their way home. Chuck understands that house hunting on the internet can be a real challenge, and that while the photos might look great and the story seems interesting, the reality might be different. Chuck has extensive experience in all aspects of both residential and small commercial real estate. He offers his clients knowledge and honest guidance. A client's time is valuable, so Chuck investigates the properties for them. Long lists of possibilities are pared down to a lean list of probabilities. The global reach of Sotheby's International Realty and his concentration on quality, high-end properties has enabled Chuck and his staff to stay abreast of this fast-moving, ever-changing market. As a professional, Chuck maintains affiliations with the National Association of Realtors, the California and Northern California Boards of Realtors, and numerous other real estate trade associations. Chuck has the distinction of having earned the advanced designation of Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), a professional credential requiring a higher level of education and comprehensive experience and market knowledge. There are over one million licensed real estate agents in the United States, but less than 35,000 hold the designation of CRS. Chuck is one. When not consulting about real estate, Chuck loves to spend time outdoors in California's Mediterranean-like climate, enjoying the state's locally produced foods and wines. Chuck helps his clients streamline the process of house hunting so that every hour they invest is truly a productive hour, spent successfully finding the perfect home.
