Charles Campbell

Commercial Real Estate Consultant

Charles Campbell I’m a local, been here all my life, born and raised kind of local. I pride myself on knowing everything there is to know about the current economy and real estate market. My philosophy is simple, “Do what you say you’re going to do” and “Treat people the way you’d expect to be treated” it’s that simple. Information is at everyone’s fingertips these days, but what’s missing is the human element which brings with it experience and expertise.

I love to help people get from where they are to where they want to be, sometimes that happens fast and other times it takes years of hard work. I don’t “sell” property I solve problems, create unique solutions, consult with businesses and property owners and help those businesses and owners grow but above all else I build relationships that start when someone out there decides they need a change.
