Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Mckinleyville, CA.
When I was thinking about buying a house, I called Charles after reading his outstanding reviews on Zillow. I'm so glad I did. I've bought and sold homes in the past, and Charles is far and away the best broker I've worked with. Charles is knowledgeable, kind, patient, and responsive. He's honest and ethical, and he takes seriously his fiduciary duty to you as a client. This means that Charles isn't trying to close just any deal, but actually makes sure he is representing and pursuing your best interests. Charles and I did a lot of investigation into the house I ended up buying, and he spent a great deal of time meeting with various contractors and experts along with me. Charles is also knowledgeable about construction and repair, which is a huge asset. He explained every aspect of the buying process thoroughly, and he's a joy to be with. I love the house I bought, but I'm sorry the process is over, because I miss Charles!

I had 5 pieces of estate realty to sell located 300 miles from my home. Charles McCann has been outstanding. He developed excellent marketing plans based on realistic estimates of value—4 of the properties sold within days of listing. He is extremely honest and has the highest integrity. Charles also helped get the properties repaired and upgraded by finding excellent contractors and working with them in ways most other realtors would likely not have done. And he has retained his sense of humor no matter what obstacles have been thrown in the way. I highly recommend him.
We bought an older manufactured home in Arcata. Charles is the best. He is not pushy. We appreciated the fact that he treated us with respect even though we were not buying a more expensive place. Will recommend if we get the chance. Thanks, Charles.

We have known Charles McCann for more than a decade: he helped us find our first home in Humboldt County, which we ended up renting from my folks. When my husband and I were finally ready to take the plunge and make our first home purchase a year and a half ago, we contacted Charles and began the hunt. Little did we know it would take nine months! Our particular housing needs and funding status, combined with a tight market and rising rates, made the process considerably trickier than anticipated. I'm sure that many other agents would have grown impatient with us. Not Charles! Patience is one of his foremost traits. He is also a joy to be around - ever courteous and considerate. Furthermore, he always replies to requests for showings promptly and is willing to show whatever house you want to see. His view is that the whole process is an education in the market and in refining your housing needs, and the more you look at, the better the ultimate result. Perhaps most important, he knows the market thoroughly and is extremely savvy when it comes to making offers. In fact, he is one of the area's leading realtor-experts on local housing statistics: current and historical inventory trends, price points, etc... In the end, Charles found us a wonderful home at a very competitive price and in a fantastic area. We could not be happier with our purchase. Choose Charles and you can be confident of a great outcome to your housing search!
We feel very fortunate to have had Charles as our Agent. He gave impeccable advice and listened carefully to our situation and handled our Short Sale in an expert fashion. He was very responsive and professional and stayed in constant contact during the entire process. He is very knowledgeable about Humboldt County and the trends as they happen. He keeps stats that help his clients know when to list and what to expect. We would say that Charles is the perfect Real Estate Professional!

When the time came to sell the family home we grew up in, emotions were a little tender and sensitivity was desired. We wanted a realtor who could do the job for us and also be mindful of our feelings. That realtor was Charles McCann. Charles competently and professionally got us through the process, answering every question (often more than once!), returning every call, explaining every detail, keeping things on track and getting us past numerous obstacles that came our way. This house was small and old, no big money to be made, yet Charles completely devoted himself to every aspect as though it were a much more expensive home. Very kind, very patient, very thoughtful, Charles became more like a friend than a realtor in doing his job. Everything worked out beyond perfectly, and we can't thank Charles enough for not only completing the sale, but also for his compassion and dedication. Without hesitation give him a call - he's the one you want to help sell or buy your house.

Charles is brilliant.
I contacted him regarding a home I was interested in buying. The home was listed on Zillow on Friday night. I called him on Saturday, and he said "I'd be surprised if that house was still on the market Monday." We arranged a prompt showing, and Charles helped me get my offer in swiftly, ahead of the crowd.
I successfully purchased this home, and could not be happier with my decision. Not to mention- before close of escrow, another interested buyer offered me $10,000 to walk away from the house, so that they could purchase it.
I declined that offer, but it was a great testament to Charles' expertise regarding the demand for homes in Humboldt County. He predicted that the house would be highly sought after, and his judgement was 100% accurate.
Charles was steadfast and effective, answering all my questions swiftly and completely. He is a genuine, honest man, and will stick with you through the entire process. You couldn't ask for a better Realtor, or friend.
If you are looking for a Realtor, choose Charles McCann.

Charles has grown up and lived in the Humboldt area his whole life, and is a very experienced, and knowledgeable agent. He's also a very nice guy and was always happy to take calls or meet with us -- to the point of even helping us with negotiations that dragged into Christmas Eve! He's very patient and thorough in explaining all steps in the process of buying a house -- and provided us with excellent insight and advice on the price of our house. Even though there weren't any recent sales with comparably sized houses on large lots like ours, he was able to do some calculations that put the value at almost EXACTLY what the formal appraisal did. (He's previously taught statistics -- and it shows.) Being such a nice person, Charles isn't a hard-nosed, bulldog of a negotiator, if that's what your after (but such tactics don't always work anyway). I would describe his negotiation style as straightforward, honest and factual. He let the listing agent know that he didn't believe that the house would appraise for what the sellers were demanding (and he was right). In addition to all these benefits, people who work with Charles also have the benefit of his excellent website which has all MLS listings *AND* can be customized to pull up the kind of house you want (based on price, size, lot size, beds/baths, etc).
