Charles Holmes, Providencia Real Estate Services was our Broker for the purchase of a $1.9 million condominium in downtown Bellevue, and the sale for our $1.5 million home in Bellevue. He is outstanding. First, as an advisor/counselor, in helping us determine if this was the right time to move from our 19 years in a single family home to a condominium. Second, as a communicator. He anticipated our questions and always kept us up to date. My wife and I have very different communication styles and he hit the mark with both of us. Third, his knowledge of the real estate market is exceptional. He is data driven, he shared the underlying data with us, explained it in clear terms, and we always felt that our decisions were based on well researched information. We were confident that our offer was fair and reasonable. Finally, his negotiation skills are spectacular. He was extremely professional in dealing with all parties and we always felt a true sense of honesty and integrity. We highly recommend Charles Holmes, Providencia Real Estate Services.
