Charles grew up here in the desert, he knows this place and loves this place. He did leave, however, first going to College at Occidental in Los Angeles, then a career in hotels, bringing him to Santa Cruz, San Francisco and New York City. Though he loved these cities, ultimately, they weren't home, and he wanted to return to the Coachella Valley. A group of charming towns sitting by the wide-open desert and adjacent mountains they are a truly special place. This return also allowed him to explore his love of architecture, neighborhoods and the natural world. Interests which deepen his ability to help people find homes reflecting their uniqueness, and hopefully joy into their lives.
