Hi! I'm Charles, a Licensed Realtor based in Chicago, IL. With a passion for real estate, architecture, and design, I have dedicated my career to the art of working with clients to find them their dream property.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, I developed an early fascination for architecture. This curiosity led me to pursue my education at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture. Throughout my academic journey, I demonstrated an exceptional aptitude for translating the wishes and requirements of clients into design, which laid a solid foundation for my future endeavors.
Following my academic success, I embarked on a professional journey in the wine business that allowed me to refine my skills and make a meaningful impact in sales and world class customer service. I gained valuable experience working a wine import company for 12 years, where I collaborated with my family and colleagues to grow the company from a mom-and-pop operation into a thriving, successful business.
Beyond my professional pursuits, I maintain a deep-rooted passion for travel, food, and fitness. I find joy in exploring new destinations, hiking, running and Orangetheory Fitness, as they provide me with a sense of balance and inspiration. Additionally, I actively engage in community involvement and volunteer work, striving to make a positive difference in the lives of others.
Driven by a desire indulge my passion for architecture and design, and a desire to implement my decades of customer service and client relations experience, I have recently embarked on a career in Real Estate. I am an expert on the many diverse neighborhoods of Chicago, and I look forward to working with you to secure your dream property.
