Charlie helped up buy then years later sell our townhome in Steamboat Springs. He is a very professional marketer taking incredible still photos and video to help promote his sales. He is also very knowledgeable about the local market for buying and selling, And he is a fun all around guy!
Charlie is a smart, caring, charismatic, professional, savvy, dedicated, athletic and devoted family man. His expertise in all facets of our condo sale was extraordinary. The photos and video of our condo were beyond compare. After seeing the photos we commented that we would re-buy the condo all over again. Charlie is gem and we would highly recommend him for your Real Estate needs.
Wonderful. Was fast and efficient and sold the home at a great price. Very easy to work with and showed us a very great creative side that probably sold the home quicker and for more money.
Charlie was everything you could ask for in a real estate agent. He was patient and calm, and kept our best interests at heart at all times. It was a pleasure to work with him.
As new residents, we appreciated Charlie's knowledge of the area. We were also very happy with how he negotiated with the seller. He really went to bat for us. Would definitely recommend him to others.
I would highly recommend Charlie. He did a fabulous video of our home, has a great web site, state of the art and knowledgeable.
When we decided to purchase a second home, we scoured several real estate agents' websites and selected Charlie Dresen via www.steamboatsmyhome.com. His savvy website includes features such as informative videos on each neighborhood, distance to restaurants and new listings within the last 24 hours. Charlie is one of the few agents in Steamboat who doesn't require registration to view listings and to us, this is a sign of real estate agent confidence.
During the search process, we were not the easiest couple to deal with since we were not on the same page with each other as to our requirements. Charlie handled both of us with sincere understanding and patience. Since we live quite a distance from our new home, Charlie graciously videoed possible properties sometimes at a moment's notice.
When our condo came on the market, Charlie professionally handled the transaction smoothly even though other people were interested in the unit. Our purchase was small compared to Charlie's own listings yet he focused on each detail of the closing process as though we were million dollar clients.
We took a contract on the property in about one week and closed it in about three weeks with Charlie steering the conversations and negotiations in a smart and professional way. The main ingredients with a real estate agent important to us were "smarts" and "trust". Charlie is way up the scale on both.
I purchased a condo in Steamboat from Tampa, Florida using Charlie. The experience was fantastic. Charlie not only gave me access to an online view of listings, but he also quickly responded to any questions I had regarding listings. I was able to use GoogleEarth and Charlie's MLS listing database to narrow my search to a few units. Charlie did video "walk-throughs" to help me in my decision-making. In the end I decided that I needed to physically see the "best contenders" and Charlie organized visits to the units based on my quick turn-around schedule from Tampa. I decided on a unit, with Charlie intervening in the negotiations to ensure an even lower price than I had targeted; Charlie organized all aspects of the closing so that it took place within 2 weeks of my offer, handling all aspects of the closing so that I did not have to return to Steamboat.
Now that I've had the unit for a while and have used it a few times, I am absolutely thrilled with every aspect of my purchase. It met every single criterion that I had and I got it at a price that was excellent!
As out of state sellers and then buyers, we were very pleased with Charlie's representation in all instances when we could not be present. He beautifully photographed and videoed the property we were selling and took advantage of multiple sources to provided a strong online presence. The result was a speedy sale that satisfied our financial needs. After the purchase of our new property he remains a resource as we settle into our new home. I highly recommend Charlie Dresen as a real estate agent.
