Chuck works exclusively with buyers on St. Croix and represents the needs of buyers as a buyer agent on all transactions. He was Broker of his own Buyer-focused real estate firm on the island before his office was invited to join Sotheby's International Realty. He was the first Exclusive Buyer Agent in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and developed Buyer Agency on St. Croix. He saw early on that buyers interested in investing in, or moving to an Island in the middle of the ocean needed someone who would look out for their needs and interests, and help them navigate the local real estate waters. Through his hard-won experience he also learned that the most successful and rewarding transactions are win-win transactions, where both sides strive to be fair. He has a straight forward, honest approach to real estate, and keeps checking himself against the phrase, "How would I want to be treated if I were buying/selling this property?" Chuck holds a professional degree in Architecture from the University of Maryland and was owner of a design/build company in the Delaware/Maryland area for over twenty years. He knows what makes a good building, and is knowledgeable of the requirements necessary in structures to meet the local island conditions. He takes his passion for design into everything he does, including real estate, and loves showing off the many architecturally significant properties and the extraordinary views on the beautiful island of St. Croix. It is a great time to purchase property on St. Croix. The real estate market here has seen the influences of the decline of the real estate market on the mainland, and those who have been watching the market can buy now at a good price. Chuck and his team will match you and your requirements to the best properties on the island, show you exactly where that property is in reference to the current market, and help make the current downturn work for you.
