Charlie was born and raised in San Fernando, California where he excelled at playing basketball and was a quick and feisty shooting guard.
Once he realized he wasn't going to be the next Larry Bird, he set his sights on the real estate industry and hasn't looked back for over 20 years.
Charlie started his career in 1991 with La Cagnina & Associates as a runner and worked his way up to Sr. Leasing Associate before the company was sold to Grubb & Ellis in 1996. While with Grubb & Ellis Management Services GEMS, Charlie was put in charge of the West Coast Leasing effort for all the Managed properties within the GEMS portfolio over 8 million square feet of shopping centers.
Charlie then took a job as Director or Leasing for UDO Real Estate where he grew the Leasing department to include Tenant Rep, Landlord Rep and Shopping Center sales. Upon Leaving UDO Real Estate Charlie joined OTO Development specializing in the roll out of extended stay brand hotels for Hilton and Marriott in the west coast. Charlies next stop was at O&S Holdings, where he managed and leased their US portfolio.
Missing the entrepreneurial call of Brokerage, Charlie joined Retail Net Lease Properties, Inc. RNLP, where he worked with many different Tenants and Landlords eventually becoming a partner in the firm. In 2012, Charlie made the jump to Present Value Properties, Inc. PVP, Inc. to open their Los Angeles county office in Woodland Hills. In 2014 he reunited Kevin Barry at Irish Commercial Brokerage to continue their successful partnership.
You can still find Charlie in the local gym, but these days he wears a coaches hat, teaching the local youth how to perfect that jump shot.
