Chuck also is versed in commercial real estate sales. His second sale in the business was a church! A pastor of a local church had approached Chuck with a daunting task. His congregation was renting space in Cambridge and wanted to own. The Pastor had been looking for over a year with several other agents to no avail. Being a small congregation, they had very limited funds, but significant requirements. They needed parking for 40+ cars, seating for 400 people, a large function hall, needed to be near the T, and all members of the congregation needed to be able to get to the church within 45 minutes. Chuck went to work and to the delight of the Pastor found such a church in Melrose and put together a deal for the pastor that was made in heaven. He has also assisted in commercial sales/rentals of buildings in the Back Bay.
Chuck's achievements extend far beyond the workplace. Believing that one should give back to the community that has given so much, he was vice president of the East Cambridge Planning Team (a neighborhood civic association) for 3 years and president for 2 years. He was also president of the East Cambridge Land Trust, a non-profit organization that developed housing for low-income people.
BEFORE REAL ESTATE
Chuck's began his career as a software engineer with a start-up government consulting company in the early 1980s. Next, he moved to Digital Equipment where he held positions of software engineer, project manager, program manager, business development manager and eventually became responsible for the development of new business lines for the company - efforts that leveraged over $500 million in sales.
After Digital Equipment Charles started his own company that focused on recovering unclaimed assets for individuals and businesses. His company, featured in the Boston Globe as the most successful business of its type in New England, holds the record for recovering the largest unclaimed property claim from Massachusetts State Treasury - a $3 million estate that was lost for 50 years.
