    My Client Testimonials

    I am a highly-satisfied customer and if ever in need of another house or property, I will use Charlie Brue again as my agent. Five stars for Charlie!! ~ Gary Harris Jr., Fergus Falls MN
    I moved here from Colorado. Charlie was a great resource to me being that I wasn't in state. I appreciate his expertise and for getting all of my questions answered so quickly. I would highly recommend Charlie! ~ Sharla M., Fergus Falls
    He was great to work with ~ JoAnn Berg Affinity at Eagan
    Charlie was perfectly attentive to our needs. When we contacted him for information, Charlie responded quickly with a call, text or email. Of the several homes we have purchased down through the years, this was the easiest and quickest. Thank you, Charlie! We are grateful for your service and have already recommended you to another potential home buyer. Charlie's professional and gracious service to my wife and myself was beyond reproach. We'd use him again in a heartbeat. Our experience was superb. Charlie got the job done quickly and professionally and was available whenever we needed to ask questions or needed more information. We purchased the house without seeing it in person. Charlie arranged for our son and his wife to check out the property for us and we viewed the property via FaceTime. All of this went smoothly and in the time frame we needed, thanks to Charlie. ~ Forrest Erickson - Fergus Falls, MN

    Charlie had helped us buy a rental property previously and then helped us sell it later. We appreciated then that he iis honest, fair and works hard to get our properties sold at a fair price! And we continue to appreciate his helpfulness and experienced advice. Our last rental house was more of a challenge to sell because of age and location. In order to sell our rental property on 115 W. Channing, he went the extra mile to help us fulfill the unusual safety and house improvement requirements of the buyers mortgage company. Well stick with Charlie! ~ Norm and Lois Thomsen, 516 W. Channing Ave., Fergus Falls, Mn

    Charlie Brue reached out to me when I requested to view a residence that was listed with Century 21. He was very knowledgeable, helpful and just a really nice guy. I would rate his performance a 10 out of 10. I couldn't have asked for a better house buying experience. Thanks, Charlie! ~ Terri K

    Charlie was very patient with us as we were first time home buyers and using a VA loan. We didn't know it at the time, but VA loans, while worth the trouble, can be a bit of a pain, and Charlie walked us through every step and made sure we understood what was next. We hope to some day be able to buy a vacation home, and Charlie is our guy. ~ Johnathan Berry, Fergus Falls

    he is a good person and was always right there for me ~ rick bartlett 1332 linwood ct
    Charlie is a great guy to work with. He helped us buy a home that would be temporary, but we didn't know for how long. He then helped us find a lake home. That took many outings, contacts, research and he handled any questions we had on the property. He then handled the sale of the first house we'd bought. Charlie will go out of his way to help you find the house you want. If the need arises, we'll contact him again. ~ Kathy & Steve Hardyman
    Charlie Brue was listing a property that we saw when driving by. Even though that property was already "gone," Charlie took the time to meet with us, ask what we were looking for, and then set up notification emails so we received properties via email. He was consistently on the lookout for us without being overbearing. Hands down, Charlie is an amazing guy and it showed right from the start. Charlie was so accommodating when we were slowly plodding through the scant listings of springtime. Then when that hot property came up, he was ready to jump on it. He has the patience and perseverance to push through the slow times as well as the agility and savvy to move very, very quickly to help us nab a great home at a time when competition was fierce. ~ Jessica, Fergus Falls
    I could only say he made all of us feel comfortable and when there arose some disagreements with the loan people, he was always by our side helping me out. ~ Sharon Rittenour, Fergus Falls, Mn.
    Charlie was just great. I walked into this not having a clue what steps to take or a knowledgeable person that could offer me solid advice. Charlie did everything he could to make sure I understood all aspects of the process and helped me along with tips and suggestions when I needed them. ~ Chad Christenson. Fergus falls
    Charlie was always readily available and quick to respond for any questions I had while working through a rather complex contract. ~ Neal Miller, Dilworth Minnesota
    Charlie has helped us purchase our last two homes and we plan to use him when we sell a home this summer. Both times he drove us around to numerous houses until we found the one that was right for us. We plan to use him again this summer when we sell one of our houses. ~ Steve Hardyman, Clitherall, MN
    It was an absolute joy working with Charlie. I would recommend him to anyone. ~ Kyle Pevestorf, Fergus Falls
    Charlie did an excellent job in meeting our needs to find a new home and sell our old home. We had specific items that were needed as we considered looking for and purchasing a new home and Charlie was very attentive to meeting those needs. We were able to spend the necessary time to find the right home because Charlie understood what we needed. He was supportive and diligent in his persistent work to find the important factors to fit our demands. He was also supportive in the work it took to sell our old home in a timely manner. Then he arranged all the closings to coordinate together to make our home buying and selling a seamless process. THANK YOU, CHARLIE! ~ Mark and Cathy, Fergus Falls
    It was a wonderful experience to work with Charlie when looking for my first home. He was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. ~ Kate McNelly, Fergus Falls, MN
    Awesome!! ~ Alan Ihrke Duluth mn
    Charlie Brue was so tuned in to what I needed in a home. He was always thinking of the perameters of my finances and could always be relied on to return calls. Friendly and courteous. Having never bought a house before, he explained everything so that I understood. ~ MarJean Martelle
    From the first meeting over coffee to the closing, Charlie provided great service! He understands the market and helped us to find the perfect home for our family. He is patient, thoughtful and guided us through the entire process! Thanks Charlie! ~ Brad and Traci Hoganson, Fergus Falls MN
    Charlie was great at communicating and finding the appropriate property that fit our needs. He was patient and offered great advice. He was considerate and we never felt uncomfortable when seeing properties. He was great to work with and made the process of buying our first home very easy. ~ Blaine & Alisha Asleson
    Our level of trust knowing that Charlie Brue is honest, hard-working, and excellent in what does was the reason that we chose Century 21. ~ Gregg Preston, Fergus Falls
    He did a very well job with research and finding multiple homes to look at. There was good feed back given about each place and his knowledge helped in my choice of the right place that seemed to work for me ~ james lauinger, fergus falls
    I trust Charlie Brue to be fair, to work hard for me, and consider any advice he gives. He's excellent to work with, he's patient and thorough, and always has time for me. I would recommend Charlie to anyone and will always use him in the future. There was no doubt that Charlie considered us his priority and that he was working for us. This was very good for us to know and we appreciated his interest in us getting what we wanted. Charlie was professional at all times and friendly at the same time. I cannot say enough good about his friendship and the professional relationship we have with Charlie. He's outstanding in both regards. The receptionist was always polite and helpful. Charlie was knowledgeable and always diligent in finding out pertinent information for us. ~ Craig Nersten, Fergus Falls
    We would recommend Charlie Brue to others wanting to sell their property as he does a great job with taking of pictures and an online presence as I think that is how our buyers found our property as they came from a long distance away. He is dedicated to helping the seller both in selling their property and in buying new property as there is a high stress level that some sellers and buyers are experiencing though the process. He was very timely in phone and email contact to keep in touch. If he didn't know the answer to some situations he would find out the answer from others and let us know. We are very pleased that the first looker made an offer, and happy to be able to find a new home quickly with closings on both properties on the same day. He is very open and likable and a people person that helps you feel confident and supported through the process and we are very grateful everything worked out so well so fast. ~ Cathie Fredrickson now from Vining, Minnesota
    Charlie was very patient and flexible. We weren't able to find the perfect house and were losing hope until the last house we looked at. During closing, he was great with getting things done. Did great even when our bank messed up. ~ Natacha, Fergus Falls
    I was confident that not only did it I have Charlie working to sell my home but also the staff at Century 21 working together to accomplish the successful sale of my home. ~ K. Asche, Minnesota
    Charlie was great to work with. He was able to adapt to our quick closing and get the job done in a timely and neat manner. Thanks Charlie! ~ Jessica Gilbuena, Fergus Falls, MN
    Charlie was very helpful to me in getting my house sold,he helped arrange radon mitigation that had to be done so that everything was done in a timely manner prior to closing. I feel he went above and beyond what other realtors I have worked with in the past. ~ Amy Nelson, Fergus Falls
    Charlie Brue was extremely helpful to us. He contacted us when he knew a lot we were interested in became available for purchase. Charlie communicated to us in person, by phone and through email so we were aware of everything we needed in order to purchase the lot in a quick and efficient manner. We would highly recommend Charlie Brue to anyone looking to purchase or sell real estate. ~ Bruce & Sherri Money, Fergus Falls
    Charlie Brue was way beyond helpful with the purchase of our house. His knowledge of the Fergus Falls area and contractors in the area was a bonus. He was very prompt and clear in his communication and was always available for questions and giving us access for inspections. He was thorough with paper work and offering a last minute walk through before closing. I would certainly contact Charlie in the future for any property buying or selling activity. ~ Carlene Cloud in Fergus Falls, Mn.
    Charlie was very easy to work with, very willing to check out houses as we were not local. Hate creepy basements and he pre-checked several for me and sent me pictures so we didn't waste time. He took us to around 16 houses in two days, then handled our bid. We had limited time looking, buying and closing and he was very willing to accommodate our schedule. Buying experience was smooth and easy. Thanks Charlie! ~ Kathy Hardyman, Colorado Springs CO to Fergus Falls MN
