Re: Charles Olson and The Run NYC Team at Keller Williams Realty Empire - Brooklyn
From the first day to today, Charles has shown a real sense of professionalism and devotion to the sale of our property. He and his team have been true to the commitments made up front and we are clearly the benefactors of their hard work and dedication.
Charles held open houses for us as often as we needed, gave us significant notice when individual buyers wanted to make appointments and was prompt in giving us feedback and thoughts of prospective buyers. He was able to accommodate our difficult schedules and work around the timetable of our 3 children, which is not easy.
Charles and his team clearly have a solid strategy which is a notch above the rest. The best proof I have of this is that an identical unit was up for sale directly above ours at the same time and for the same price. This unit remains on the market today and based on discussions with our upstairs neighbor, we sustained significantly more traffic and received more quality offers.
Charles brought very real and competitive offers to the table and was able to give insight to the buyers and guidance based on his experience as to when to push back. It was very clear he had our best interest in the forefront of his mind. In the end we got the price we were hoping for.
More than anything I would like to thank Charles and his team for being true partners
and a trusted advisor in this endeavor. We could not have done it without them.
Handled a sale for my client and they had nothing but great things to say about the entire team. There were several unique issues but due to Mr. Olsens negotiations we were able to get the transaction closed.

Charles Olson and his team at Keller Williams are consummate professionals.
As a first time buyer, I had a many reservations and trepidations about the whole process based on my friends' exepriences. The Run NYC team treated me more like a friend and less like a nameless client. The whole process was tedious with many issues, and i hate to admit that i thought about giving up so many times. But, thanks to my KW team's perseverance, it all worked out in the end, and i couldn't be happier.
I would go back to them in a heartbeat.
Keep up the good work
Helped me rent a Single Family home in Austin, TX.
My college-age daughter and her roommate (neither a native New Yorker) were at their wit's end trying to find an apartment in Brooklyn, dealing with constant competition, inexperienced and/or unreliable real estate agents, and the endless paperwork and documentation required. I happened to see an interesting listing by Charles Olson on the internet and recognized the Keller Williams name. I called him and he picked up his cell phone directly. I was immediately comforted by his obvious experience and knowledge of both the area and the process. They ultimately rented that great apartment and could not have done this without him. He knew exactly what was required and went out of his way to make the process as convenient as possible, even picking them up from Manhattan when needed. He was readily available by phone or e-mail always getting back to us within a half hour or so. We ended up actually saving money on the fee, because of his honesty and integrity.

Professional and extremely knowledgeable. Keller Williams Realty first assisted in our apartment hunt back in 2012 and then a year later, our very first home purchase. Both times the processes to obtain the property went smoothly with all our questions and concerns addressed instantaneously. I highly recommend Keller Williams whether you are a buyer, seller or renter NYC. Exceptional customer service and reliability. I highly recommend Keller Williams and will be using them again for my next home purchase in the future.
My experience with the Run NYC Team stems back to September, when I first moved to Brooklyn and acquired the help of Charles Olson through a friend. He came highly recommended.
Moving to a new city can be tough, especially New York City. For myself and my girlfriend that was definitely the case. Working with Charles and the Run NYC Team definitely made things so much easier, and their knowledge of the area was pretty impressive. We handled things very quickly and they found exactly what we were looking for. Charles and his team were really down to earth and people of the neighborhood, something I thought was very important. They treat people well and aren't just trying to rush you through the process. They even drove us around and saved us some gas money.
All in all, we had a great experience. We love our apartment and neighborhood, all thanks to the team.

Always responds to inquiries right away. Charles takes the time to explain the entire rental, buying, or selling process to his customers and clients. Never hesitates to accommodate customers' and potential clients' needs. He will take the time to answer questions and answer any and all concerns. Charles goes out of his way to make sure potential renters, buyers, and sellers are comfortable and at ease. I would not hesitate to recommend Charles to anyone looking to enter the real estate market for any reason.
