Bought a Single Family home in 2005 in Galena, IL.
Reading through these reviews, you might be skeptical with all of the five star ratings...but I'm telling you, this man is exceptional. He helped us purchase a home in the Territory back in 2005, and the purchasing process was only the beginning. I've read before where people say the service continues afterwards, and always wondered what they meant, but now I know. After six years, we still hear from him (as we are not out there full time) letting us know how the house is doing, once letting us know that our garage door was open (something set off the opener), even checking on the place after a heav snowfall. You might think people don't provide this type of service these days, but Charlie Fields DOES. I'm proud to not only call him my agent, but also now my friend. I'm sure there are other fine agents in Galena, but I would not consider working with anybody but Charlie.

Bought a home in 2005.
We feel very lucky to have met Charlie and had him as our agent. He took the time to really get to know us and to help us determine what kind of property we were interested in. He showed us around the area, toured properties with us and continually worked at helping us locate the perfect property. He never gave up and kept in touch with us, making us feel that he was really putting forth an effort. When he located the house we ended up buying, he provided invaluable assistance in the negotiation and buying process helping to make it a near painless process. We would not hesitate to use Charlie again and have recommended him to our friends. His knowledge, expertise, tenacity and helpfulness are a cut above the rest.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Dekalb, IL.
Charlie is a wealth of information! He really knows the Galena area and the surrounding towns. Charlie really took the time to get to know us and has the amazing ability to match us up to houses that would be a good fit. Charlie is very easy to talk to and he is very honest. He is always available to us-and to our many questions. We love working with Charlie and look forward to continuing our relationship with him.

Bought a home in 2005.
Charlie Fields was a great help to us when my wife and I decided to look into buying a home in the Galena Territory. We discussed with him our price range and the features that we wanted/needed in a home. He scheduled a whole day with us to tour various homes in the area, taking into accound our price range and desires. This experience alone was worth the effort of looking for a home as we learned so much more about the Galena area. We learned a great deal about the market in the area, what was available in our price range and about life in the territory.

When we decided on a home to purchase, Mr. Fields assisted us through a process that took several months, between bids, inspections, various accommodations with the seller, and arranging financing. We had not been in the real estate market for many years prior to this so his assistance in navigating the legal requirements and negotiations with the seller were invaluable.

One thing I like about Charlie was his up-front attitude. He told us exactly what to expect and what was required of us and his suggestions when negotiating with the seller were reasonable and led to an amicable purchase.

During the years since our purchase we have called on Charlie several times for recommendations for various area services and have been pleased with his suggestions. He knows the area, knows the people of the area, and this was reassuring when we needed to have guidance when dealing with local agencies and businesses.

Had he not been so competent and helpful, I am sure that our relationship would have ended at the closing, but we have had the pleasure of visiting with Charlie and his wife and consider them friends.

Bought a home in 2009.
We met Charlie Fields Septmeber of 2009. We had decided to look at houses in the area for a retirment home. Charlie not only found the home for us within a couple of hours, we decide to move in before retirement. Charlie's knowledge and follow thru made the purchase a very easy process. Charlie arranged all the inspections needed for us and kept us on scehudle. I would highly recommend Charlie to anyone looking for a home in the area.

Bought a home in 2008.
Charlie Fields has been nothing short of stellar for us. When we were house hunting his patience and diligence in showing us many different properties was so appreciated. Now we are on the selling end of things and Charlie is is just as impressive. We would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone.

Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2009.
Charlie has done an outstanding job from the beginning. He is knowledgeable, strategic and honest in terms of what we were facing. He did an outstanding job of marketing our property. He went out of his way to do little things we weren't able to do because we were out of town. We would use Charlie again in a heart beat.
