    "My husband and I first met Charles as the selling agent on the purchase of our home in 2007. We were impressed by his expertise and he became our go to Realtor, handling several transactions for family members, including the recent sale of 2 more properties for us - to everyone's satisfaction.
    It is rare to find someone so knowledgeable and professional that you simply know all will be taken care of. This is Charles Brickell."

    "Charles was fantastic to work with! Without his help in securing a get it done finance person (Steve Saucer) we would not have been able to do the deal. Charles, is just an over all good person, honest, hard working and fun to work with! You cannot go wrong with Charles!"

    "Working with Charles to sell our home was one of the best decisions we made during our relocation process. His understanding of the area including schools, inventory, market conditions and price points helped us quickly move through the process of getting our home listed in order to get maximum value for our home. Throughout the showing cycle Charles kept us informed and personally hosted each open house and individual showing. His easy going style helped potential buyers feel at ease and helped them truly understand the personal and market value of our property. Once under contract, Charles again showed how valuable a great realtor partner can be by managing the process and making every aspect of the closing easier for us and our busy schedules. Even today Charles checks in with us in our new home and keeps us informed of life back in SoCal. I highly recommend Charles whether you are buying or selling!"

    "Charles was efficient and went above and beyond what is expected of an agent from listing to closing. Also, Charles is very calm at what could be stressful points of the contingency portions of the sale so therefore, we remained calm. He has great follow through from beginning to end, and communicates through entire process. We enjoyed and respected Charles as an agent."

    "Charles represented me in a transaction to find and purchase a new home in Orange County. He is undoubtably one of the most diligent and thorough realtors I have had the pleasure to work with and was always considerate of my time and requirements. Charles was well prepared at every showing and did a great job of prescreening properties that fit the profile we were seeking. Charles knows the market and the surrounding areas. In addition, he has been very thoughtful in following up after the transaction closed. I highly recommend Charles as both a buyer's and seller's agent."

    "Charles Brickell. Where do I begin recommending Charles for all your real estate needs?

    I am drawn to Charles' impeccable professionalism, high standard of care of his clients’ properties via outstanding advertising and consummate follow-through, and his vast knowledge of the Laguna Beach/Laguna Niguel community. It is through this expertise that Charles is spot-on regarding listing, pricing, showing and negotiating all residential real estate transactions. I came to believe while observing Charles in the South County real estate arena that when we listed and sold a property of our own, Charles would be our only consideration as our family's real estate professional.

    In the last two years, Charles has successfully listed and sold two of our properties in the Laguna Niguel East Nine neighborhood. Our first home sold in 2014 is still the highest listed and sold. Our second home was only on the market for three days before a full price offer was received. This property successfully and without issue closed in January 2016.

    Without question, Charles is the only agent my family will ever consider when buying and selling in the South Orange County area."

    "You just can't beat experience. Charles delivered on all expectations; sale price, length of time on market and a smooth escrow. You'd be wise to work with him.
    He's consultative, communicative and responsive, providing great feedback every step of the way. We evaluated other listing agents; Coldwell, Surterre and Berkshire. With Charles and Hom Sotheby's we received an individualized strategy and plan specific to our needs, not a one size fits most approach.
    Be smart, work with Charles Brickell."

    "I worked with Charles to first lease a home, and later sell a home. Both times his professionalism and responsiveness were key to the success. He is always prepared for whatever issues may come up, which in my case were also legal issues related to the property. His vast experience and knowledge of the legal aspects involved with real estate transactions made the process go smoothly and profitably for me, the seller. The home was sold within a week, and the steps all took place on track just as Charles set-up. I was grateful to have a professional like Charles on my team, and would definitely work with him again."

    "Charles possesses a high level of integrity and I highly recommend him. I selected Charles to sell a home in Crest de Ville after interviewing several real estate professionals. Charles successfully sold this distinctive home in a brief period of time and it was a pleasure working with him.

    "We have dealt with many realtors over the years and Charles was by far the most knowledgeable and professional. From the time we listed our home to the close of escrow, he was prompt in responding to questions and concerns and had excellent recommendations for presenting our home and negotiating with the buyers. We had never before agreed to show a home by appointment only, but Charles convinced us that it was appropriate for our home and that he would be available for showings, and we were very well satisfied with the showings our home received. It was a pleasure to work with him."

    "We have purchased a home, sold a home, leased a rental (twice) and I would have it no other way. Once we got to know Charles on our purchase it was clear he is the one to call. He is knowledgable, always, always returns calls and has the correct answer. He is involved in the community and has an honorable work ethic. I am grateful to have been introduced to him when we so needed a broker with the right skills."
