"Charlie recently helped us sell our condo on Barrow Street in the West Village. Everyone I questioned had positive things to say about him. Charlie helped me find contacts for painters, cleaning lady, floor refinishing company, condo association, attorney, etc. He kept us informed about open houses and potential buyers. If I had any questions he quickly answered them. At no time did I feel lost in this process. Charlie sold our condo within a few weeks and got more than our asking price! This was amazing! We could not have done this without Charlie’s dedication. We expected the condo to sit for months before we would get any serious buyers. Charlie worked nights and weekends and sold the condo in record time. Through emails, phone calls, etc, Charlie always kept us informed on every potential buyer and their situations. Just when we thought it was over and had our asking price, another buyer came out of the dark and bid more than our asking price. Charlie went beyond what we expected. We were very lucky to find and have him as our agent. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy in NYC. His experience and contacts were perfect every time. My uncle would tell Charlie “show me the money” and I would the end Charlie really showed us the money!" - Veronica M.


"Charlie recently represented me in the sale of my apartment and I am very pleased with both the selling process and the resulting price we obtained. From the beginning, Charlie was highly professional, responsive and attentive to my needs, arranging for a quick and thorough professional photoshoot of my apartment and writing very compelling and informative listing details for the listing so we could begin the selling process without delay. Clearly seasoned and skilled by his years in the business and experience handling many transactions in various neighborhoods and buildings, Charlie immediately gave me a sense that he thoroughly knew the market and my building in detail, and his confidence helped me feel at ease. Charlie’s guidance through the process of evaluating offers and his negotiating skills to get me the best possible price and the quickest closing date were invaluable to the successful outcome. I was not only in contract at a price well over my expectation but, due to Charlie’s continued attention to my listing, the subsequent board approval process was accomplished seamlessly. Even to the very end, Charlie was spearheading efforts to solve late-arising issues which, had they been handled with less care and dedication, could have prevented my sale from closing. I felt at every step Charlie was my “right-hand man”, providing expert guidance and complete transparency as to what was happening and what to expect. I highly recommend Charlie Summers for any real estate transaction. A class act all the way!" - Michele P.

"Hey Charlie good morning. Continue to work your magic, Rockstar! We appreciate your efforts tremendously. Thank you so much. Best of luck" - Gil S. & Gil W.

"Charlie, Thank you as always!! You have been my major help, my support, my best real estate agent for many years. Knowing you are there for me keeps me sane and at peace, being an absentee landlord I really can't thank you enough." - Maki Y.
