April 24, 2010 Hi Chuck, You are my SUPERHERO!! I want to let others know how much I appreciate all you've done for me and how you helped me. I lived in my home for 40 years, and through life's circumstances I couldn't keep up with the mortgage. I was totally clueless what to do, and frustrated at the mortgage company and governments so called "homeowner's relief packages". I was ready to file bankruptcy and figured I was just going lose my house. I met someone who highly recommended Chuck because of his tremendous patience and knowledge in real estate. She said I should call him and see what my options were. It was the best phone call I ever made. When we met he was very PROFESSIONAL, yet warm and friendly. Chuck CAREFULLY LISTENED as I explained my situation. He said he could definitely help me. He explained all options, both good and no so good, in a way that I understood. He took the time to explain how mortgage the companies and banks operate. His KNOWLEDGE in the entire workings of the real estate market is impressive. He knows and shares all the secrets that can HELP HIS CLIENTS. He told me my best option was to sell my home as soon as possible. I had a really hard time facing the fact I had to give up my family home. Chuck's COMPASSION is incredible. He helped me be comfortable in selling my home. His always POSITIVE attitude and confidence for the best really helped me through this extremely stressful time. He put my house up for sale, and within a day had several offers. Chuck is probably the most ENERGETIC and AGRESSIVE realtor out there. He knows how to take pictures of houses to bring out the very best (I didn't know my house could look so good). Then he put my house on multiple websites (his virtual tours are awesome), newspapers, and in other media areas. Next came the open house. I think he covered the entire city with open house signs! The open house absolutely amazed my neighbors. Over 200 people came through and looked at my house. On a side note: the house next door was also for sale, and the realtor couldn't believe the activity at my home and wanted to know Chuck's secret. By the way it's STILL for sale. We ended up with dozens of offers. Chuck is amazing, He got $26,000 over the asking price, and $36,000 over the comparable sold listings. My home sold in three weeks. He was with me every step of the way and only a phone call away. He ALWAYS took time to talk to me. He answered all my questions, calmed me down and moved me along when I needed it. He kept me informed every step of the way. Everything went exactly the way he said it would. His tremendous PATIENCE and HONESTY is awesome. He really CARES about his clients. Chuck went over and above what I feel any other realtor would have done. He moved fast to sell my home and I really wasn't prepared for it. He gave me a lot of information to help me get things organized and moved. He has a vast amount of knowledge, and is always willing to share it. He helped me find a crew to help with cleaning my home and moving. I was having a hard time finding a place to live that would take my large dog and within my budget. CHUCK CAME TO MY RESCUE! He found me a place to stay until I can get my feet back on the ground. Thanks to Chuck, my house sold for more than expected, I didn't have to file bankruptcy, and I didn't lose everything. I've got a new beginning in life and a new friend. Sincerely, Kim Talavera

Hello Chuck, We wanted to take a moment and "Thank You" for making our short sale process so smooth and for doing such a great job. We closed on January 22nd, 2010! This was one of the most stressful events in our life and your professionalism and your great direction really made the process easy and understandable. Chuck we would like to "thank you" for always doing what you said you were going to do, for always picking up the phone, for always listening to our fears and for your patience and understanding. Chuck listed our home in Sept of 2009. The first weekend we held an open house and we were shocked at the amount of traffic and the 12 offers! We were so excited that Chuck produced so quickly. After the first offer fell out, Chuck brought another couple through our home and we had a Cash Offer in 24 hours! Wow, especially in this market, we were blown away. During the whole process, Chuck was very diligent with his paperwork. The traveling office works wonders! He was able to clearly explain the process and his team was very helpful in dealing with the mortgage companies. We strongly recommend Chuck! He is honest, VERY HARD WORKING and fights for his clients. We will use Chuck for all of our future real estate needs. Rob and Patty Sneed

Chuck, My wife Esther and I want to thank you for doing a fantastic job over the years helping us buy and sell homes and for being a great neighbor! To those who will read this, we want to let you know that we have never known anyone to be as hard-working, thorough and trustworthy as Chuck. He is of the highest ethical character and does whats right for his clients and not whats best for his wallet. From the beginning, his sales and purchase strategies were clearly explained, but not forced on us. Over the last couple of years, he and his team have helped us sell 2 homes during very difficult times. Because of his hard work, knowledge of the market and aggressive marketing strategies he was able to get us the highest possible price for our homes. Chuck is extremely thorough and patient. If it werent for his help, we likely would not have sold our homes, especially for the price that we got. Chuck and his team also helped us to purchase a home in the inland empire. We were under pressure to make a quick purchase due to a short escrow. During that time, he was relentless in presenting us prospects, personally driving us the 50+ mile distance to the areas we were looking at and staying up until the late hours of the night to write up multiple offers. All of this helped us to get a great deal on a beautiful home that all of our family is completely satisfied with. We would recommend Chucks services to ANYONE interested in purchasing or selling a home. He also makes a great neighbor. Sincerely, Roscoe and Esther Woody

To Whom It May Concern: I am writing to share my experience working with Chuck Ohlwine on recent real estate transactions that transpired in March 2007. I have known Chuck on a personal and professional basis for about 18 years. In addition to having a friendship that has stood the test of time, we worked together at an office supplies company for several years. It was during the time that we worked together that I noticed his outstanding work ethic. He was always punctual, efficient, went above and beyond the call of duty, and had a great rapport with co-workers and clients. These are just a few of the many reasons I sought him out when I was ready to sell my home to purchase a larger one. My husband and I listed our home with Chuck, despite todays volatile real-estate market, and despite the fact that over 80% of listings for homes in my neighborhood had expired without success, including homes that had been on the market for over a year. Nonetheless, I was ready to upgrade, and was hopeful that Chuck could find a buyer. From day one, Chucks dedication and work ethic was exemplary. He used state-of-the art equipment to photograph my home, so the photos in the listing, fliers and mailings looked fantastic compared to others. The quality of his fliers was also superior to others, as they were printed on heavy-weight, glossy paper in full color. He also hosted an open house at my home. He went above and beyond the call of duty, posting flags for several miles leading to my home to increase awareness of the open house to all interested parties. In just over a month after my home was listed, we got two offers. That was the good news. The bad news was that the offers came in on the day I was admitted to the hospital to give birth to my daughter. Since we only had 24 hours to respond to the offers and I was unable to leave the hospital, Chuck brought the paperwork to my husband and I there. Once again, this shows his dedication and how he went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we would not lose the opportunity to leverage both buyers and secure the best offer. He had to return to the hospital a couple more times to discuss and sign the counteroffers, but remained diligent to work as our advocate and see the transaction through. All in all, he was able to sell our home in a climate when no other agents could do the same. We got the same level of service when purchasing our current home. He continued to work as our advocate, ensured all of the paperwork was completed properly, and stayed in communication with Escrow and Loan officers to ensure everything was progressing as it should. In a climate where one has an ample choice of agents, I would give Chuck the highest recommendation and accolades for being a superior agent. He is passionate about his work, and delivers first rate service to his clients. Chuck is also bilingual, so his ability to speak Spanish is a huge asset in todays multi-cultural environment.

For the benefit of the person reading this letter: We are writing this letter of recommendation for Chuck Ohlwine, Realtor at First Team. My husband and I were referred to Chuck with high praise of his ability to get a property sold. Chuck became our Realtor on April 25th, 2008. On April 30th, 2008 we were in escrow having received multiple offers on our home in Anaheim. By far Chuck Ohlwine marketed our property in the most effective and efficient way than any other Realtor we had previously hired. He took the best photographs of our home and property. (Best photographs meaning that they really showcased our home and in some cases made the home look better than we thought possible). He used multiple websites and included the same wonderful photos to market our home. We can tell you that his marketing strategies worked because the response was immediate in terms of requests to show the home he sold for us. Many homeowners in this current market have difficulty with the reality of pricing their home. We were included in this group prior to meeting with Chuck. He had solid suggestions for the pricing and his strategy worked. After entering escrow on April 30th, 2008, we closed escrow on June 3, 2008. We were also pleased with the escrow company he used for our transaction. If you are serious about selling your home or property, you won't be disappointed with Chuck's performance. Sincerely, Jean and Steve Emanuel

Chuck, A word of Thanks. We cannot tell you enough how impressed and appreciative we are for getting our investment property sold so quickly. After seeing your work around town, we knew you were the guy for the job. When we came to you to sell our rehabbed property that we obtained from a family member in trouble, you were straight forward with how we needed to price it and you gave us a sense of optimism that it could be sold during this troubled real estate market. We have never worked with an agent so agressive and determined as yourself and getting multiple offers in the middle of the rehab of the property was nothing short of amazing. From now on, you are the man for all of our real estate needs. Tom Oelze and Raquel Castillo Anaheim, CA

Chuck, We, just want to say "Thank You"! Don and I, where able to get our condo, sold and get to our new location in Corona, close to our children, Thanks to you. You, did a wonderful job getting our condo, in Anaheim sold so we could move to Corona and be close to our family. Chuck, if it wasn't for the marketing of our property and the efficient way that you presented our property we would of never got it sold. Our, agent from Corona's, First Team office, referred you to us, and all we can say to her is "Thank You". When, Don and I first met you and we discussed your pricing and selling strategies, I was really surprised. But, was very confident of your information and what you knew about the area. You, knew that we needed to price the condo right to get it sold fast, because there where other condo's in our complex for sale. You, started off taking pictures of our condo, to show off it's size and location. Within, the next few days we started having buyers stopping buy, and a few days after that we had a firm offer. This all would not of happened if it wasn't for your aggressive and professional marketing strategies. We, Thank You, again. And, we would highly recommend you to family and friends. Sincerely, Don and Sherry Katz Corona, Ca.
