Hello my name is Charlie Fazio and I am a Licensed Broker Associate with RE/MAX Opportunities, Inc. My career in real estate began with Coldwell Banker in 2007 and I've since joined the RE/MAX Opportunities, Inc team. I have been around Real Estate my entire life with multiple family members having been licensed agents over the past 30 years. I grew up in the Des Moines area, currently live in Des Moines, and work from my home office. I specialize in the buying and selling of residential homes throughout all of Central Iowa. Since becoming a Realtor I've been involved with various aspects of real estate such as; a listing agent for Hubbell Homes in new construction, listing/selling a wide variety of existing homes in various areas, listing/selling acreage's, and have worked with several investors in selling or purchasing rental and "flip" properties as well.
Prior to Real Estate I was a low voltage Service Technician for Baker Electric and worked my way up in this field over a 7 year time frame. Here I had the opportunity to lead several large projects for such companies as Wells Fargo, Nationwide Insurance, John Deere, Meskwaki Casino, Des Moines Schools, and others.
I spent the majority of my childhood years growing up in the Beaverdale area where I attended Holy Trinity School. Throughout my early years I played a variety of sports such as football, baseball, and basketball. My freshman year I attended Dowling Catholic High School and from there transferred to Roosevelt High School where I finished out my high school years.
After high school I became a John Deere Team Scholar and entered their manufacturing program at DMACC. I hired on at Deere and worked in their cotton department. There I had the wonderful opportunity to also travel throughout the states of Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. Myself and another co-worker would go out to various cotton farms in these states, and work on their machines. It was a blast!
I currently reside on the SW side of Des Moines with my wife Sherry and our four children. As you can imagine - we are always busy. Whether it's a school function, baseball game, or some kind of camp - our kids keep us hopping! I truly enjoy spending time with my family and we are very thankful for all that we have.
My hobbies and interests include; working on old cars, remodeling houses, enjoying sports of all kinds, and real estate investing. Most would say I am a people person with a great desire and passion for what I do. I honestly owe my success in real estate to the amazing clients I have worked with thus far. Their loyalty and willingness to refer anyone they can to me has just been phenomenal and I cannot thank them enough.
If you have read this far then hopefully you feel like you know a little bit more about me! If you're currently in the market to buy or sell a home I would love the opportunity to meet with you and further discuss our options.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and I look forward to hearing from you!
