Most importantly he stayed on top of things to make sure we were getting what needed to be done completed on time. From start to finish, we can’t say enough about Chuck’s value throughout the process.” R.O.
“I worked with Chuck Brazer on the purchase of an apartment building in which a private contract was negotiated with the seller which offered a number of challenges beyond those of a typical bank financed transaction. Chuck was very steady and knew when and where to push for the best outcome. The result was a successful closing that allowed me to maximize my return.” G.M.
“I have done a number of transactions with Chuck over the years, both as a buyer and seller. He has always masterfully negotiated the details. When there were issues of disagreement he generally finds a way to make the deal happen. He is a ‘go-to’ broker.” J.C.
