We had NO doubts that Charlie would do a great job. He is always prepared and professional. This time he also recommended a lawyer for us (Linda Valenti) who also did a top notch job. The negotiations were smooth and it was an "easy" sale! Charlie is the BEST!

Charlie Vernon is a great real estate agent. He helped us early on before we went on the market with improvement suggestions. We did most of what he suggested and got a great price for our house in the end, more than we expected.

Charlie was great! It was a difficult process for us, but Charlie made sure we knew what was happening and gave us good, calm advice.  Charlie did the sale on our house and  the purchase of ours and our son's new place. We are happy with it all!      (Chicago seller & buyer)

"Charlie is one of a kind! He has years of experience that give him knowledge and skills that are crucial. He not only advised on the transaction, but on general issues around the transaction. He helped us find this place 8 years ago, helped us sell it, and helped us find our new home. We will never use another agent. No other agent offers his knowledge, advice, hand-holding, therapy taste and good sense!"

Chicago Sellers/Buyers

"The communication was great-clear, professional, timely. He listened carefully to our concerns and was responsive. He taught us a lot, as we had to make vital, quick decisions. I really appreciated Charlie's advocacy and service to us-he always made us feel like we really mattered! Aside from the many logistical aspects of home buying Charlie also considers the very human aspects of this process which is why I'd use him again. Thank you!"
