What can we say? Charlie Goodridge sold our home in six days!! Charlie, Mary, and team followed through on everything they promised with their service. Our property was marketed professionally, priced perfectly, and prepared properly for prospective buyers. We highly recommend Charlie Goodridge for property listings.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Saratoga Springs, NY.
My husband and I met Charlie while we were still in the process of deciding if we were even going to sell our home. Charlie agreed to come over and take a look at our house knowing that in the end we may not even list it. Once we made the decision to sell, Charlie was our first call. We felt he worked through the decision process with us, he listened to our concerns, answered all of our questions, he was always honest with us and never pressured us. Charlie was able to sell our house in less than 4 weeks – during the Christmas season no less! Throughout the negotiation process we always felt that Charlie had our best interests in mind. My husband and I could not have been more pleased with the results of his efforts!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Greenfield Center, NY.
Simply put Charlie is the best real estate professional I've ever had the pleasure to deal with. He is knowledgable about the local area and responds to questions or issues quickly. He made water into wine for us and helped secure financing in the bottom of the 9th. I'm a Veteran and Charlie helped me move through the VA loan wickets with expert advise. We are so happy in our home now and it simply would not have happened without Charlie. He comes with my highest recommendation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $925K in Saratoga Springs, NY.
We selected Charlie through an interview process comparing his responses and initial feedback to a set of questions versus that of other realtors in the area. Charlie's responses showed him to be a top-performing professional who would add value to our home purchasing decision-making by guiding us with local insight, helping us to avoid pitfalls and enabling a good solution for us. We wanted someone who was more than just a nice person who would follow our lead; we wanted a professional.

Our experience during the process of selecting, negotiating and buying our house matched our initial expectations. Charlie demonstrated exceptional performance as a knowledgeable and skilled partner in the process committed to enabling good decision-making including predetermining maximum acceptable market value, guiding us on future resaleability, and ensuring value preservation of our final selection. We found Charlie to be very helpful with go/no-go decision-making so that we didn't get emotionally tied to an overpriced house.

This meant for us that we did not buy the first house we were interested in. Instead we reached a point in negotiations on two houses where we stopped further negotiations. We liked both of these houses but they were simply too over-priced and the sellers were not willing to take the loss to get to market pricing. Without Charlie's guidance we could have easily been in a situation where we paid too much for a house we liked and found ourselves stuck not being able to resell the property if needed without a substantial loss. Charlie helped us avoid this pitfall.

In addition to his technical skills we found Charlie to be very personable and easy to work with. Charlie has a comfortable style, and my wife and I both instantly formed a lasting personal connection with Charlie. Charlie is more than a realtor for us now; he is a friend. Throughout the process we were able to talk frankly about negotiation strategies, identify limits and boundary conditions, and get frank feedback from Charlie as to whether we were missing something in our thinking.

Once we locked in on the house that we purchased, Charlie's team jumped in to provide good support to complete the final details to take us through closing. We found that Charlie has a good network of top-performing professionals in the area and was able to give us guidance on the right people to use for all the supporting details -- attorney, home inspection, septic system inspection, etc. This was very helpful to us since we were new to the area and did not have any reference points on our own.

Our experience with Charlie was 5-star. Always accessible; always responsive; a great partner. We now count Charlie among our friends. We highly recommend selecting a top-performing professional for making a large purchase like a home, and Charlie is the professional in the Saratoga Springs area whom we recommend.

Thank you Charlie!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Mechanicville, NY.
Charlie was fabulous. He was very sensitive to our needs and what we had to work with financially. Charlie managed to get us our dream home at an outstanding price. Before we found the house of our dreams Charlie was full of resources and properties to look at. Charlie is very friendly and pays attention to his clients. We thought it would be impossible to find what we needed but Charlie found a plethora of homes that fitted our needs. Charlie is also very thorough and he went above and beyond in helping us with the lawyer involved who was not listening to our needs. I don't normally write reviews of anything or anyone but The expierence with Charlie was wonderful and the results of his work found us our dream home. I beyond highly recommend him

Showed home in 2013 in Cedar Bluffs, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
Our family is relocating and looking to purchase a home.

Charlie is the 'realtor for families'. Integrity, professional, patient, knowledgeable and above all is extremely responsive and an excellent listener.

He will gently guide you and allow you to lead your search in a manner that works with your pace. He does offer suggestions and presents a perspective previously not considered in hopes of offering clarity while making decisions. His approach works well with me because he provides clear goals for the day and allowed time to work for us not against. I did not feel rushed yet we worked with 1 to 2 hour time slots for initial viewings. If I liked the property we could revisit. We visited numerous properties in search of my home. My family is relocating and we were able to coordinate our appointment and plan ahead with ease. Charlie was always prepared above and beyond. He made concessions for showings with a bundle of joy energetic toddler. This is key to a family, someone ensuring the client is comfortable including all members of the family along for the ride. He took care of scheduling all our home viewings even in last minute instances.

We are still working with Charlie. He has done everything right. I have yet to find my home due to very specific requirements on my end. I am patient and am working with a patient reputable realtor and in time we will secure the property that works well for our family.

Absolutely recommend Charlie Goodridge as a realtor!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Malta, NY.
Charlie and Mary were terrific to work with. I was always aware when showings would be held, and was provided with feedback from potential buyers right away, Charlie is great with local market research, and provided me with data about listings, pending and closed sales, along with a comparison of those properties to mine. When I had a family emergency just before the closing, they carried it off without a hitch.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Saratoga Springs, NY.
We had not purchased or sold a home in over thirty years and were very impressed at our first meeting with Charlie's knowledge, courteousness and business like approach to our needs. On working further with him it became apparent that he was always responsive to our questions and kept us updated on what happening. Charlie's office support, in particular Mary Deyoe, was also top notch in answering our questions. In short our experience working with Charlie and Prudential Manor Homes was excellent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Ballston Spa, NY.
Charlie was wonderful to work with. He did a ton of research for us since we were moving from Hawaii. We flew into town for 2 days and he had a lot of houses scheduled for us to view. We were able to find our new home in those two days and had the process finished in time for us to move right in when we arrived in NY. Charlie was great with communication from the very start and we would highly recommend him.
