Charlie was great to work with. We wanted the process to be speedy and professional and luckily we received both. Charlie responded quickly to all emails, gave advice, was not pushy, and had a great attitude. We plan to do more business with him in the future.
Very responsive and professional. Charlie was patient with me while I got familiar with the area over 18 months before I made a purchase. He was very knowledgeable of the area around Branson and Table Rock Lake. Charlie helped me to negotiate a good price for the property.
Charlie was prompt and attentive to our requests. He had a keen since of exactly what we were looking for and did not just flood us with multiple options. The whole process was smooth from initial to closing. In less than 30 days we were in our new home.
Charlie is highly professional with a common touch, never slick or full of-it kinda stories. Always responsive to a call or question and highly trustworthy. Anything said is as good as in writing - which it always is. No rush, no hurry, meticulous in every detail, and gracious in the face of trying circumstances.
Charlie works very hard with high integrity. He is knowledgeable about the current market and the technology available to stay ahead of the real estate curve. He helped us sell our home very quickly and the process went smoothly. It was a pleasure to work with him. Charlie is good at what he does!
The biggest reason for recommending Charlie is his ability to negotiate and overcome obstacles prior to closing. Several potential "deal breakers" popped up after accepting an offer and Charlie was able to navigate through some pretty rough waters to keep things on track. I think Charlie's professionalism, expertise and ability to keep all parties calm allowed our closing to proceed as planned.
Charlie served as the listing agent for our home. He was very knowledgeable about the area, pricing, and inventory. He was very instrumental in the successful negotiation and sale of the property. Charlie was always responsive to our calls and got back to us quickly with answers. We had a tough negotiation at the very end of the sale in which Charlie was very successful with a conclusion that allowed the closing to proceed as planned.
I had previously contacted two other Realtors and made offers on a lot. I don't know if they were ever presented to seller as my calls were never returned. Charlie stayed on top of things and we closed on our lot in May. Even though it was a low commission for him, he made us feel like his most important client. Charlie answered every call promptly and calmed our fears as we were doing this from out of state. If you are selling or buying I highly recommend Charlie Gerken. You will not be disappointed.
Charlie Gerken brought a lot of market expertise to the process of listing our home for sale. He was uniformly responsive, courteous and kept us well informed throughout the entire process. Charlie is a true professional who exhibits a wealth of real estate knowledge and I would highly recommend him for all your real estate needs.
Never having been to Branson, and needing to find a house in short order, I started calling Realtors. I left several voicemails, but no one returned my calls. I drove through some neighborhoods that looked promising and saw "Gerken" signs. I called and was surprised that a real person answered. It was Charlie Gerken. Within hours he had found listings in my price range that met my wish list. Throughout the house hunting process Charlie was very knowledgeable, answered each email, and returned every phone call within minutes. He was the perfect Realtor. I am now a happy home owner and give Charlie the highest marks for professionalism. I hope to have many opportunities to recommend him to others.
In a difficult market where comparable properties in the same neighborhood were going unsold for 6 months or more, Charlie's real estate knowledge and marketing expertise resulted in us getting a contract the first day it was listed! Then, his negotiating expertise and knowledge of the process guided us through an extremely difficult situation with the inspection. The property closed on time largely due to his efforts. I strongly recommend Charlie to anyone wanting to sell their home.
What was not expected and now the biggest reason for recommending Charlie Gerken, was his ability to negotiate and overcome obstacles prior to the closing. Several potential "deal breakers" popped up after accepting an offer and Charlie was able to navigate through some pretty rough waters to keep things on track. I think Charlie's professionalism, expertise and ability to keep all parties calm allowed our closing to proceed as planned.
We are from out of state looking for a place in Branson. Charlie is very knowledgeable about the branson real estate market. He was very patient with us as we looked at numerous properties. He was very helpful, but not pushy on any property. Charlie will respond very promptly to emails or phone calls. We found the perfect place and would not hesitate to use Charlie Gerken again and would highly recommend Charlie to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the greater Branson area.
When my husband and I finally made the decision to live in Branson, our next step was to find a Realtor. We read Charlie's bio on his website and decided he was the one! We felt that, since he was born and raised in Branson, he would have the best knowledge of the market. We were not disappointed! Charlie spent time talking with us, helping us to pinpoint our priorities for a condo, making suggestions on where to look. And he helped us stay focused on our priorities. At no time did we feel pressured to look at properties that did not meet those priorities. We appreciated his patience and professionalism, his timeliness in responding to our calls and questions. We would highly recommend Charlie Gerken to anyone wanting to buy or sell property in Branson.
We have been working with Charlie for the past month and it was great! Not once did we send him a text or email and not get a reply almost immediately. He's always available, day or night, and ready to answer questions. And absolutely no pressure! We told him what we were interested in, he made it available to us, and the rest was up to us! Couldn't have been a better buying experience.
We have worked with Charlie twice now. Once in 2007 and again this year. Both times he was able to meet all of our needs. He was very patient when we asked to see more than the normal amount of properties before purchasing. Charlie is very timely in getting back to you when you have questions and always keeps you updated during the buying process. He never leaves you hanging. He never put any pressure on us to make a purchase. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for assistance in the Branson area.
Charlie showed hard work and dedication throughout the entire listing process. He was always available to us and helped minimize any crisis that arose. His work ethic, dedication and patience helped us get through the toughest home sale we have ever had.
Charlie helped us find the most wonderful Table Rock Lake home in the Ozarks. Having been in sales for many years, it's hard to find a guy like Charlie who is motivated to provide quality customer service needed to sustain good business relationships. Your professionalism, knowledge of the market and sincere desire to work with us on our unique demands is much appreciated.
We stumbled upon a home we liked which was For Sale By Owner. Because we've used Charlie Gerken before, we informed the seller we would only make an offer through him. Charlie handled all our negotiations with great professionalism!
I recently purchased an investment property through Charlie Gerken. I am a real estate broker in Kansas and have been licensed for over 30 years. I am pleased with the way Charlie handled the transaction. I did not travel to Missouri for the closing, but he handled the details and always responded immediately. I have bought and sold many properties, but never have I worked with an agent that was so quick to respond to all my concerns as he did. I will definitely use Charlie again.
We traveled to Branson several times a year and called Charlie Gerken to consider purchasing. Throughout the next two years, he kept us up to date with area real estate and was patient while we made a decision. We finally found the right place, a condo, last fall and are so happy with our purchase!
When it was time for us to sell, we didn't think twice of giving Charlie the listing to our cabin. Dedication and personal service is second to none. A job well done!
Thanks very much to Charlie for your help in making it easy to sell my condo from a distance. It was so convenient for me not to have to be in Branson and still get it sold at full price!
Buying a home can be a stressful situation, especially when you live 500 miles away! We arrived from Texas for a long weekend and were referred to Charlie. He worked day and night to find us a home in the short time we had. The day before returning to Texas, we found our home and signed a contract!
Charlie goes above and beyond the call of duty on a regular basis. We don't buy property from anybody but him.
Thanks for making the purchase of my commercial property an easy and pleasurable experience. I've purchased several properties from different real estate companies and my experience with Charlie has been by far the best.
Charlie cared about what I wanted in a home and provided solutions to the normal (and not so normal) dilemmas that arise when buying real estate. My experience with Charlie was outstanding from start to finish!
New to the area, we saw the Gerken & Associates office and stopped in to inquire about land for sale in Branson. Charlie was professional, helpful and eager to assist. We ended up purchasing a vacant lot in one of their newly developed subdivisions, Huntington Green Estates, to build our dream home. We are very satisfied with our purchase and look forward to moving to the Ozarks.
Being a first-time homebuyer is overwhelming, but Charlie ensured a smooth transaction. He took the time to validate my concerns and wasn't just out for a quick sale. He fit the process into my busy schedule by emailing me listings with photos and directions. From the first time I met with Charlie at his office, through closing day, he was at my side. I recommend Charlie to all first-time homebuyers.
We stopped by Gerken & Associates during our first visit to Branson. Although we were just looking, Charlie was very helpful and never pressured us. Throughout our house hunting experience, Charlie was professional and everything he told us proved to be true. We eventually decided on a lake cabin and are well on our way to enjoying lake life in the Ozarks.
Charlie provided us the best buying experience we have ever had. Was very responsive to our questions and made the process much easier than I expected even when issues arose. We were most impressed with his attention to details and helping us with all aspects of the buy from long distance. Great guy and definitely recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling in Branson.
We chose Charlie to list our home based upon his reputation with the locals. Charlie is a wonderful real estate agent and made us feel like we are his primary clients.
On behalf of my parents as well as myself, I'd like to thank you Charlie! You were so helpful when we purchased our land and extremely skilled when we needed to sell. We're very grateful for our contact with you and cannot say enough about your services.
Since the purchase of my home, I have referred several of my friends to Charlie because I'm confident in his dedication to personal service.
We recently had the pleasure of working with Charlie for the second time. We purchased a home through him years ago and when we decided to sell, there was no question as to whom we would use to handle our property. Professionalism and friendliness combined are the main characteristics that make the entire Gerken family and their associates the best agency we can recommend in the Tri-Lakes area.
Charlie eliminated all of the intimidation I felt as a new homebuyer answering all the questions and concerns throughout the process. Thanks Charlie. I love my new home!
Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with numerous Realtors, however, when it comes to listing my new construction homes, I always use Charlie because he doesn't just show them; he sells them.
Charlie followed through in all aspects of my purchase - from finding the right property to closing day. Exceptional performance!
After countless months of looking for a home in Branson, we followed a Gerken & Associates sign to the most beautiful neighborhood. Upon seeing the home, we called Charlie to view it. We trusted in him, as he gave generously in time, effort and patience to walk us through the purchasing process. We recommend Charlie Gerken for all your real estate needs.
Thanks for everything Charlie. You are a complete pro to work with every step of the way! That was the smoothest, quickest closing I have ever been through. Please thank everyone on the Gerken Team. I will give you a referral anytime. You are always welcome to have people call me for one.
Being a first time home buyer I was quite nervous about the buying process. After much research I decided working with Charlie Gerken would be my best option. Working with Charlie was a drama free experience where superior professionalism was the rule rather than the exception. Excellent follow thru, regular and timely communication, extremely knowledgeable, a positive can do attitude, and fun to work with! I highly recommend contacting Charlie Gerken for your real estate needs.
We had not bought property or had real estate experience in some time. A lot of things had changed in the procedure over the years. Charlie Gerken made the purchase so easy with no hitches along the way. We would highly recommend Charlie and give him and his company 5 stars.
Charlie Gerken is more than just a real estate agent. Charlie was wonderful with the sale of my parents property. He is very ambitious, hard working and honest. My parents and I have lived in Branson for over 20 years and we believe Charlie Gerken is hands down the most efficient Realtor. Thank you Charlie!
Charlie Gerken is a very professional real estate agent. We have been dealing with Charlie and his agency over the last two years from California to Branson. We would have no problem recommending Charlie and his family agency to anyone. We consider Charlie and his wife Yulia to be new friends to our family. Thanks for all your support.
Charlie was a true asset and advocate. Being from out of state I really relied on his insight and integrity. When we got serious about selling, the house went fast! Even with a few road blocks Charlie saw to it that the deal closed smoothly. Thanks Charlie, job well done!
Charlie is awesome! Very kind and helpful throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Charlie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Southwest Missouri.
We closed by internet on a condo in Branson this morning and Charlie represented us. Time from contract to closing was just 30 days. Over the past year Charlie was very patient with us whenever we drove in from Nebraska and probably showed us over 20 properties during that time - some more than once. Charlie is very professional, courteous and I recommend him highly.
We just bought a condominium in Branson through Charlie and found it to be a very pleasant experience. Charlie is a very easy going, knowledgeable and professional agent. This was an out of state transaction and it went smoothly without a hitch. If you're thinking about buying property in Branson, we would not consider using anyone else. Charlie is the best!
Charlie has sold 3 properties for me in Branson. He is very articulate and experienced. Charlie Gerken was very caring and very professional. He responds immediately when there are questions that need an answer. He was amazing before closing when difficult obstacles were facing us. Charlie came through just like a champion, because of his expertise. He is truly a real professional and expert in real estate. I would recommend him if you are interested in buying or selling property in the Branson area. His new bride Yulia is a great asset to him. What a great team they are!
