Results with a Personal Touch

As a reliable, tenacious negotiator, Charley Egan has successfully bought and sold homes since 1992.  Yet he also adds a much-needed personal touch to his interactions. He brings a compassionate understanding of how deeply personal and emotional it can be when you’re facing one of the biggest financial decisions of a lifetime.

Charley walks you gently through the complicated process so that it’s as stress-free as possible for you. He breaks the information into bite-sized pieces, so you gain peace of mind, a sense of safety and the confidence that what you want is possible.

“Charley made the process as convenient as possible. He returned my calls promptly, calmed me down when I got upset and had solutions for all the problems that arose.” Helen Fannon.

This caring attitude, along with his down to earth and thorough knowledge of real estate, earned him top ratings on Zillow and Yelp and a steady stream of referrals from satisfied clients.

Charley is rooted in this community. He spent part of his childhood in Santa Barbara and has owned a home here since 1990.  He was part of the many changes in the market. This gives him first-hand knowledge of local market trends, home values and all the nooks and crannies of this community.

He’s also seasoned in the highly competitive and complex Los Angeles market where he got results for his clients for many years. This included maneuvering through the 2008-2009 foreclosure disaster. That big-city knowledge equips him with additional insights that benefits you when you’re buying or selling a home locally.

Service as a way of life

Charley lives the commitment to service and client satisfaction that he learned from his father, a small business owner.

He has taught classes for his clients: first-time buyer classes, general buyer classes, home seller classes, short sale classes for sellers and buyers, as well as classes for seniors and their adult children.

His volunteer work with inner-city kids, the homeless and adult literacy, is a testament to his desire to always give back to his community.

And on a more personal note….

Who else do you know who’s been a sheepherder, a seaman, a Vista volunteer, a bartender, a ranch hand, a window cleaner, a janitor, a journalist, and a college professor? And who has traveled widely in Europe and Asia? And lived in Paris for several years?  

His worldly perspective enables him to think beyond obstacles that might stop others in their tracks.

Charley is certified as an e-PRO® Internet Professional (a tech-savvy online marketer),  a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES), and a short sale specialist.
