"Charlie had helped us buy a rental property previously and then helped us sell it later. We appreciated then that he is honest, fair and works hard to get our properties sold at a fair price! And we continue to appreciate his helpfulness and experienced advice. Our last rental house was more of a challenge to sell because of age and location. In order to sell our rental property on 115 W Channing, he went the extra mile to help us fulfill the unusual safety and house improvement requirements of the buyer's mortgage company. We'll stick with Charlie!" - Norm & Lois Thomsen, Fergus Falls

That took many outings, contacts, research and he handled any questions we had on the property. He then handled the sale of the first house we'd bought. Charlie will go out of his way to help you find the house you want. If the need arises, we'll contact him again." - Kathy & Steve Hardyman
"Charlie Brue was listing a property that we saw when driving by. Even though that property was already "gone," Charlie took the time to meet with us, ask what we were looking for, and then set up notification emails so we received properties via email. He was consistently on the lookout for us without being overbearing. Hands down, Charlie is an amazing guy and it showed right from the start. Charlie was so accommodating when we were slowly plodding through the scant listings of springtime. Then when that hot property came up, he was ready to jump on it. He has the patience and perseverance to push through the slow times as well as the agility and savvy to move very, very quickly to help us nab a great home at a time when competition was fierce." - Jessica, Fergus Falls
