Charles ("Chas" – rhymes with "Jazz") Carron has been a real estate investor since 1977 and an active real estate sales agent since 2000. Chas lives in the City of Alexandria and previously lived in Arlington so Chas is particularly knowledgeable about homes in these areas. Chas has sold homes as far south as Stafford and as far west as Ashburn. Chas is detail-oriented and an expert negotiator. Chas will never be a "dual agent" representing both the seller and
the buyer in the same transaction.
WHEN REPRESENTING YOU AS A BUYER:
Chas does not charge you anything; he accepts whatever commission the seller's agent is offering to buyer agents. If you mention that you found Chas on Zillow, Chas will absorb his broker's administrative fee, saving you hundreds of dollars. Chas finds the homes you're most likely to be interested in by asking you about your wants and needs and your "deal killers." Chas sends you daily email updates on homes meeting your criteria. After Chas has taken you out to see homes once or twice, he knows what intangibles you are seeking. After that, if you are too busy to see every home that meets your stated criteria, Chas is happy to preview for you. If you are considering using a buyer agent that rebates part of the selling agent commission to you, first talk to Chas about the services he will provide that the "rebate" agent will not. Chas works with a maximum of four buyer clients at any time, ensuring that he will be available when you need him, and especially thorough in finding your home of choice. Also, if you mention that you found Chas on Zillow and you buy a home for $750,000 or more, at closing, Chas will buy you a home warranty as his closing gift. These warranties cover the home's major systems and the appliances for a year.
WHEN REPRESENTING YOU AS A SELLER:
Chas does not charge you any up-front fee, earning a commission only when your home sells. Chas markets your home aggressively. As a Zillow Premier Agent, Chas differentiates your listing through the use of Zillow Special Offers. In addition to publishing the listing—including a slide show—in the multiple listings and on all major real estate web sites, Chas has a full page flyer printed and delivered to every real estate sales person in the marketing area. These flyers include photos and a full description of the best things about the home. If you mention that you found Chas on Zillow, and your home is listed at $750,000 or higher, Chas will pay for a one-year home warranty for the buyer—covering the home's major systems and the appliances—and advertise that in the internet listing and the flyer. Chas will not list more than one home in any neighborhood or subdivision at the same time, so that his seller clients never are competing with each other for the same buyers. If you are considering using a "discount" real estate agent, talk to Chas about the services the "discount" agent will not provide and how much of the commission the "discount" agent will be offering to buyer agents.
