      Sold a home in 2014.
      This was my first time selling a home, and I could not have picked a better broker than Charles to represent me. His style is exactly what I could have hoped for - calm, direct, competent, on top of every issue one could imagine (and many they couldn't), and not a high pressure person who promises a lot but delivers little. He knows the local area extremely well, he has a handle on every possible element of the selling process, and he is fantastic about staying in touch at every step of the process. I talked to a couple of other potential brokers, but Charles not only inspired confidence in his demeanor, he had a very clear plan to prepare and market my condo.

      In the end, I had multiple move-out problems with my condo association during the sale that required quick but extensive fixes before the closing could be completed (ex - plumbing, exterior repairs), and Charles had the exact recommendations and answers necessary to get these repairs finished. He was extremely flexible during this process, including taking care of things the week prior to closing when I was already out of town.

      The sale context we ended up in was a little unusual, with the buyers also being represented by Charles. I was hesitant about this situation (and Charles confessed he strongly prefers not to represent both sides of the sale), but even in this unusual circumstance, I was very happy with the outcome and sold for the price I was looking for. I expect most sellers probably have a simpler experience than I did with getting their place ready for closing, but whether you do or don't, I would have the utmost confidence in choosing Charles as broker.

      Sold a Apartment home in 2014 in Somerville, MA.
      I was a first-time home seller and Charles Cherney expertly led me through the entire sales process. He connected me with a well-priced and highly skilled home-stager. He worked directly with a professional photographer to get the best marketing shots of the property, and in the days leading up to our first weekend on the market, he published well-crafted communications to a wide array of websites and in a range of formats that insured high and positive visibility to many prospective buyers. When we received multiple offers, he orchestrated a highest and final bid scenario in an expert, quick and decisive manner. I can’t imagine having a better Realtor than Charles Cherney when it comes to selling a home in Cambridge or Somerville.  MoreLess

      Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Somerville, MA.
      This is not your typical sing-the-praises and by-gosh only Charles Cherney could have gotten us our condo review.

      Much like Robert M. Pirsig's quintessential quest for Quality in "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance", you come to the realization that Quality is at once unachievable and something that you recognize in whole within others. This is Charles. Professional. Prompt. Knowledgeable. Skilled. Quality.

      Mighty high praise, but allow me now to illustrate how Charles worked with me and my wife. At first we looked at multifamily homes in order to have an in-law unit. Charles would send us notifications, analysis, and market data on the homes in question. He was pro-active and direct, with a tight focus. Charles answered our questions and walked us through the data.

      Then our needs changed. After we regrouped, we began again, and Charles provided his insight and analysis of properties. It was during this time that we found a property that we thought hit our complete list of wants - and Charles talked us out of it. Twice. Let me explain. We were overlooking certain defects in the condo that Charles noted. Rather than encouraging us to make a costly mistake, Charles took the time to show us the flaws, and he did his duty to steer us away from the property. We are deeply grateful to Charles for this.

      And then our needs changed yet again! This is where any lessor Realtor would have folded up and called us a lost cause, especially after everything else. Charles stayed the course and helped us refocus and rethink what was possible.

      When we found our condo, Charles Cherney came through. With his analysis and guidance, we made a strong bid that was accepted.

      We've been living in our new place for about 3 weeks now, enjoying every moment.
