My Wife & I were introduced to Charlie by a friend, whom Charlie had sold two of their properties.
We had been through a long and draining sales campaign with another “top agency”…who didn’t manage to deliver a result for us.
We are so thankful our friends did us a big favour, from the moment we met Charlie, his presence & professional but friendly nature won us over!
In our eyes he is the whole package, top billing “real-estate agent” .... all rolled into a very charismatic, eternally optimistic and sharply presented salesman.
He loved & believed in our property from day 1 and he made a promise to us that he would deliver where the other agency failed to … his self-belief was infectious.
And so he did deliver … within a much shorter campaign timeframe, he had 2 offers on the table … and using his well-honed negotiating skills he ultimately sold our beloved property for Top Market Value!
Again I might add well above what the other “Top” agents said our home was valued at. So all in all we were extremely pleased with Charlie, who we just can't recommend highly enough!
I think the best praise/testimonial we could give him, is that he came into our lives as a real estate agent, and in a matter of weeks we now consider him a trusted friend for life!
So in my humble opinion, forget about all those big agencies that claim to be the best … just give Charlie a call, you will never regret it!

Charlie was recommended to us by friends for whom he had sold a property. From the moment we met him we knew we could trust him. He was friendly, sincere, honest and very professional and laid out a sales strategy to achieve the top price for our home, we were amazed!!
Not only did Charlie apply the strategy, to which we had agreed, but he SOLD our home in just 8 days for an incredible price!! To say we are thrilled is an understatement.
We highly recommend you call Charlie if you want a sincere and skilled agent to sell your home, in fact we think Charlie is the best real estate agent on the Coast!!
Thanks once again for doing such an awesome job.

The most honest, trustworthy agent you could ever have.
Charlie was an amazing salesperson, always on time, answered your questions quickly and honestly with text or phone calls, and we always felt no question was too much of a problem. We would recommend Charlie to sell your home. A great, honest and trustworthy real estate agent.

We bought and sold our house through Charlie Cochrane. We chose Charlie as our realtor because as buyers we trusted him and he gave us the absolute best service with passion and positivity at all times. We wanted the same experience for our buyers and knew that we were going to get the best and honest service from Charlie.
Charlie has thorough knowledge of the building industry having built homes himself which helps with every question that we as vendors didn't even know about our own home. Charlie is fantastic at keeping in touch, providing constant updates when and where required and he does all it takes to get the job done.
In our eyes Charlie is 200% trustworthy and his positivity is second to none. Rest assured we will be ringing Charlie again if and when we look to sell our next property. Thanks Charlie for everything.

I found Charlie Cochrane to be the most proactive real estate salesperson I have met.  He took the initiative to approach me regarding the sale of a family property because he knew it had been on the market for some time, without success.  He wasn't pushing but offered his services to help and was confident of his ability to sell it.
Charlie understood that there were some unique circumstances surrounding getting access to the property for marketing purposes and viewings and was only too willing to work with what the occupant required.
Charlie was knowledgeable about the properties in the area and supported his knowledge with sales he and others had conducted and gave a sound marketing strategy. He was very confident that he would obtain a sale prior to Christmas.
Within a matter of weeks, Charlie had a conditional offer where two other properties had yet to be sold. He was confident that he could sell the local property prior to Christmas and within a matter of weeks he had done just that. Charlie was supportive in the out of area property with both the vendor and the listing agent, which also resulted in a sale. Through this process I realised that Charlie was an agent who is more than willing to work with other agents to get a result for his vendors.
I found Charlie to be knowledgeable, completely honest, personable, hard working and more than willing to fit in with our unique circumstances regarding viewings. Nothing was ever a problem for Charlie and he always showed up with a smile on his face. He was also about 'service". He stayed in contact and always gave feedback 'straight after' the open homes or private viewings so no one was ever left wondering what had happened.
He took the stress out of selling and portrayed an air of confidence that put me at ease. At the very least it was known that Charlie would be doing everything in his power to achieve a good result and he did.
I have complete confidence in recommending Charlie Cochrane for all your real estate requirements. Whether you are a seller or a buyer, I am sure that your experience will be as good as mine.
Wishing you all the best in the future Charlie.

We are very happy to provide this testimonial for Charlie Cochrane.
My husband and l have bought and sold a number of homes over the years. We were very impressed when we first met Charlie, he was very friendly but at the same time very professional.
Since listing with him we have had amazing communication from him thru the whole experience of selling our home, something we haven’t had with previous real estate agents.  
We would highly recommend Charlie Cochrane to sell your home.
The day after our first open home Charlie presented us with three offers, one which was unconditional and our asking price, which was awesome!
In our opinion Charlie is head and shoulders above any real estate agent we have dealt with.

My husband and I have sold a few rentals & recently sold our lovely home at Tindalls Bay.  After a very poor & disappointing effort by the first agent, we were extremely lucky to get a referral to Charlie Cochrane and we could not speak more highly of his effort in selling our property.

Charlie came highly recommended to us, and he certainly lived up to his awesome reputation. Constant communication, positive energy and did what he said he’d do. He sold our property in a matter of weeks for the price we’d hoped for. If you're thinking of selling, contact Charlie Cochrane.

It’s a pleasure to write this testimonial for Charlie Cochrane. Unusually, had he not sold our home these views would still have been offered anyway!
We called 3 top agents , all presented well but Charlie’s enthusiasm and total commitment shone through. His appraisal was the lowest of the group but he emphasised his commitment to achieve the best possible price for our home. He succeeded magnificently and gave frank and honest suggestions at every step of the process.
We are so grateful for his professional advice and recommend him unreservedly.
Thanks Charlie

Fortunately, I had gone with the right agent and Charlie got the job done and was impressive. Integrity is so important with transactions of this magnitude, mistakes can be costly so I just want to say, thank you Charlie!
I am a man of few words but I cannot more highly recommend Charlie Cochrane. He is honest, kind, hardworking and an excellent salesman. He sold my property for $300,000 over the registered capital value!
I almost didn't sign the listing with Charlie as another real estate agent was pressuring me to sign with him, claiming he had a buyer at a really high price. I spoke to Charlie who listened politely and then stated that he honestly thought it was a lie, a cynical ploy designed purely to secure my listing. His solution was to sign with him as I'd previously agreed, and he'd offer this agent a 50/50 split of a full commission. If he really had a buyer wouldn't he be pleased with a big payday? I thought it was a great idea. Charlie was right, we never heard from him again, I was shocked and angry. Fortunately, I had gone with the right agent and Charlie got the job done and was impressive. Integrity is so important with transactions of this magnitude, mistakes can be costly so I just want to say, thank you Charlie!

Charlie was the Real Estate agent for my husband and myself. This was a huge move to sell our family home (after 29 year / 7 months), both physically and mentally.
Charlie was exceptional in his approach. He was always honest, realistic and up front with us through the process. Charlie was very thorough and knowledgeable about the procedure of selling a home. When it came time to make decisions, Charlie was able to give us good advice whilst allowing us to have ownership of decisions.
A strength of Charlie, is his great character. He is very personable and friendly. Both my husband and I enjoyed our casual and professional discussions.
Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me, Anna Kenny.

Hello Charlie, Many thanks for your kind words and wishes. It was your direction and honest expertise that made us think on a different, more realistic plane that helped us in achieving the sale of our property. Our meeting with you gave us the confidence to progress forward. In retrospect it is you and your company that should have initially marketed our home which we consider an earlier result would have eventuated. Doris and I have given your real estate folder to a neighbour that is seriously considering a sale. We have recommended you personally.
Thanks again Charlie. All the best to you and your family.

We first met Charlie as "the purchasers" of a property. We were immediately impressed by his professionalism, enthusiasm and positive personality. He then became our "preferred agent" for selling property also. Charlie is honest, reliable and hardworking. He is very knowledgeable of the market place, realistic throughout the process, we trust his advice and he gets results! We do not, and would not hesitate to recommend Charlie to prospective sellers/purchasers whenever we get the opportunity to do so.
