My philosophy in business is simple: I work hard. I am honest and I put the interests of my clients above my own.

Palo Alto is my hometown and where I graduated from Gunn High School in 1982. I earned a B.A. in Political Science from UC Santa Barbara in 1986. 

Previous to my professional career as a Realtor, I was a corporate accountant initially with Wachovia Bank in 1987. Over time, I easily transitioned to Controller for Mayan Art, a multi-national jewelry manufacturer based in Miami with three factories in Mexico.

Becoming a realtor was a natural for me. I had bought and sold my own properties for quite some time and had longed to work for myself. My keen management skills were spot-on for the real estate sales profession.

I live and work in San Francisco; specializing in the sale of mid-Century Condominium Homes in the Diamond Heights neighborhood. I am considered by my peers to be the Diamond Heights Expert, and I am proud of that.

My clients have also hired me as a consultant to provide real estate development and rehabbing expertise. I represent many investors and also have been in demand for my agent coaching skills. My skills have taken me to Palm Springs area where I excelled in a down market.

Ratings & Reviews

The expertise, skill, knowledge and kindness shown by one of the finest Bay Area Realtors, Charles W. Mader amazed me. I have followed Mr. Mader's professional career for many years as an observer while he expertly handled the seller interests in numerous condo units within the Diamond Heights Village community and was always impressed with the fine representation he exhibited throughout the selling process of these other units. I would attend various open house experiences and it was readily apparent that everything from staging to property descriptions, along with his keen ecstatic and creative eye, units were optimally presented to the perspective buyers. His marketing skills were top notch. Now, the day arrived where I needed his skill set and initiated my listing with him. Our relationship began and from day one, I instinctively knew that I was in the hands of a gentleman who was knowledgeable about every nuance, the local rules and regulations in the city of San Francisco to perfect my listing. Throughout my professional relationship with Mr. Mader, I was thoroughly impressed and in awe of his behavior in ensuring that my interests were protected throughout the entire process. He has a number of professional skills and outstanding relationships within the real estate community that ensured cooperative and noteworthy exchanges occurred with all buyer representatives. Mr. Mader consistently and would often communicate with me personally, updating me often on the current status of negotiations, document perfection and our general plan of action. He remained the consummate professional and his guidance and suggestions and assurances allowed me to feel that I was being expertly taken care of. I could go on and on about this gentleman's customer service skills, his expertise, his very positive demeanor (it was very apparent that this man loved what he was doing and interacting with his clients and other real estate professionals) and most of all the knowledge, skill set and professionism displayed so impressed me. I would not hesitate and would definitely utilize Mr. Mader again in any future buying or selling experiences within the city of San Francisco and in Palm Springs. Job well done.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.225M in Midtown Terrace, San Francisco, CA.

Charlie Mader is the best realtor by far! He ALWAYS stepped up and did whatever was needed in our absence; we never had to worry about safety and security of our family home, because Charlie would be there for us in the least little matter and take care of everything for us. He is professional, yet personable! I like his being on top of every situation, no matter how major or minor. His 'wine and cheeser' on the Thursday eve in-between Open House weekends was an added extra and helpful to those who were unavailable during the weekends for viewing.  More Less

Sold a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $425K in Diamond Heights, San Francisco, CA.

Charlie is very professional, knowledgeable, efficient, tactful, considerate, friendly, and approachable. More importantly, Charlie cares. I feel I can share my concerns with him. He would give your financial well being and time priority. He went extra miles to negotiate and operate for my benefits while remaining fair to other parties. He was always available to talk and text. There was nothing I needed to take care of during the process. If you are hoping for worry-free transactions, Charlie is your guy. I highly recommend Charlie without reservation.  More Less
