A 1984 graduate of the University of Illinois, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics, and a former Illinois State Scholar, I have a lengthy history of purchasing, negotiation, and sales service experience. I know that in real estate, as in all of life, details make the difference. It is the tending to the myriad details, anticipating situations, and providing superior levels of service that separates me from the competition.

I specialize in the marketing and selling of residential real estate, especially in the west side of the greater Traverse City are, including Lake Ann, Interlochen, Frankfort, Beulah, Honor, and Benzonia. I zealously represent home sellers and home buyers, with passion and integrity.

Education is paramount in this industry, and in order to better serve your interests, I have earned several designations.  Among these are:
 
Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource (SFR), to aid troubled homeowners and to assist buyers of distressed properties;

Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), which has given me the education and experience to offer consultation to our aging population. I help seniors make the choices that enable them to live life on THEIR terms. Less than 1% of all Realtors have earned that designation here in northern Michigan.

Accredited Buyers Representative (ABR), to assist all home buyers to purchase at the best price and terms possible.  
 
I have also earned the designation "E-Marketing Pro," which means that I am a specialist in utilizing the Internet to market homes and properties for sale.

Formerly of suburban Chicago, I now reside in Lake Ann, a beautiful small town about 15 miles southwest of Traverse City. In my free time I enjoy the company of my beautiful wife, our three dogs, three cats, as well as family and friends. I am an avid photographer, and find this area rich in photo opportunities. It is my dream to combine my two passions, photography and writing, to create a photographic journal of northern Michigan. I appreciate the quiet, rustic beauty of the land, respect and admire the wildlife that inhabits the land, and have found the serenity and happiness that eluded me in the big city. I am a proud member of the Lake Ann Lions Club, Business Networking International, Michigan Association of Realtors, and the Traverse Area Association of Realtors. Few people know that I am an accomplished and award-winning home-brewer, as well as a nationally recognized beer judge.

Prior to real estate, I had a successful career in the packaging industry. I served as Operations Manager for a corrugated carton distribution company. I realize that service is not just a department; it's an attitude, a way of doing business. With my combination of knowledge, diligence, and passion, you'll experience the difference a real estate professional makes in your life, and enjoy a level of service that will simply spoil you!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Traverse City, MI.
    Chuck was excellent to work with and I would recommend him to any of my friends and family. I was a first time home buyer who really had no idea what he was doing. Chuck was patient and always available to me when I had questions or concerns about the home buying process. His wealth of local knowledge includes not only neighborhood insights but also industry partners ie) lenders; appraisers; inspection professionals; developers; and contractors. All of these things made me feel very comfortable from our first meeting all the way to the closing table!

    Thanks for all the help Chuck, I'm loving my new home!!!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Kingsley, MI.
    Chuck did an excellent job helping us find a house. He was very quick to respond to emails, phone calls, and text messages, even on the weekend! He could get us in to look at any house we wanted to see on the day we requested. We were very happy with the service he provided.

    Sold a home in 2012.
    Chuck,

    We can't thank you enough for your assistance in selling our home. Your knowledge is top notch and you were able to share the tough messages we needed to hear along the way too.

    We're finally able to move forward in that chapter of our life.

    On to new dreams now!
