I had an opportunity to work with Charlie through a very difficult situation that dragged on for 30 months.  I committed to him that I would hang in with him for the duration, and as time went on he never wavered in his determination to succeed.  He was willing to do what it took, with perfect faith that we could overcome all obstacles, even when all appeared hopeless. He is a tireless example of the motto, Never Give Up!  With his positive attitude, he is unstoppable and there are no limits to what he will achieve.

I was a first time home buyer when Charlie Taranto was appointed to help me have success in finding my dream house. I was given a small deadline to get this exhausting house hunt completed in a short period of time. Charlie worked so very hard and stayed consistent in helping me to achieve this emotional roller coaster of a ride. I have never met someone so determined and dedicated to ensure meeting all the needs and wants a customer wanted. He made this experience very comforting for me and my two kids. After all the hard work Charlie put into helping my kids and I find the perfect house he sealed the deal fast and efficient. Over 7 months in my new home I couldn't be more satisfied with the results. Thank you Charlie for your hard work and dedication

Charlie is a very engaging, hard working person of integrity. He is quick to understand your style & preferences. He is very knowledgeable of the market & works hard to find home selections that fit your style & cost range. He has a great rapport with the real estate community & uses that status to serve his clients well. I heartily recommend him to anyone looking for an agent to serve & represent them.

I used Charlie to sell my old home and find a new home. He is an incredibly hard working man and went over and above to make sure that my home was sold as fast as possibly by getting as much information out to the public as was possible. I've never seen another realtor put up so many pictures of a home before, and all were the most flattering angles to make the house look spectacular. 
I had a set budget on what I was willing to spend on buying a home and the price rage I was looking at was very difficult to find anything worth purchasing. But Charlie took me to multiple different locations, searching for that perfect home and without complaint. He came through with a much nicer home than I could have really asked for and I am truly grateful for his hard work and I would definitely use him again.

 

Charlie,

 

Teri and I wanted to say thanks and tell you that it was a refreshing experience to list our home with you and Windermere. From the first visit when you talked about your previous experiences in other business, and your energetic pursuit of real estate now, we decided to take a chance on a Realtor again.

Everything that you promised was done or exceeded, from the explanation of documents, the professional photo page, (yes, there are a lot of bad ones out there) and complying with our limitations and demands. I think the best thing that we could say is, that you are genuine. There is no blowing smoke to cloud details, communication is always prompt and clear, promises you make, you keep. When we decide to buy or sell again, you will be the only one we call.

Charlie helped us find the perfect starter home for my wife and I. We were referred to charlie from a local restaurant owner in which the owner could have referred us to any of the real estate agents who visit his restaurant regularly. When we first contacted charlie he was on a family vacation but was able to visit over the phone and meet our needs even while he was out of town! Our budget was on the low side but it he was able to find some great homes even under $150,000. After our first offer on a home fell through after the inspection charlie did not hesitate to get us a new list of homes in our price range and was positive that we would find another home home right away. Sure enough, only a week or two later we made another offer on a different home that we are currently moving into now πŸ™‚ charlie negotiated a fair price that the seller accepted even though there were other offers on the home. I would not doubt use charlie again to buy or sell our next house. Thanks again charlie your great! 
Ps. Did I mention he spent all this time with us in late December right before the holidays. 
Thanks charlie, 
Josh G

Charlie got the job done! He taught me how to stage my home and looked out for my best interest all the way through the sell. The presentation of my home by him including the pictures he took was exceptional work on his behalf. Charlie is not just a sales person but cares about his clients with a true heart. The way he presented my home on Trulia was beautiful. Well done Mr. Taranto I woud not hesitate to use your expertise again or to refer you!

 

Thanks again,

Dave and Teri LaFountaine

I worked with Charlie to sell our home and buy  a new one. He was very helpful and walked us through step by step to sell our home, which we did about 2 weeks later. Then we began the process of looking for the right home for my family, which was not easy because of the current housing market, but after many house showings, we finally found our dream home. We couldn't have done it without Charlie who has been very patient with us. I highly recommend Charlie Taranto as a great realtor!
