Charlie sold our home before it was even on the market. He called me to let me know he had someone that would be a perfect fit for our home and they ended up purchasing it. He is always available and knows the market inside and out! I would highly recommend Charlie, and I have, to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Charlie is an amazing realtor. He loves his job and it shows in his work. He worked extremely hard to find us our perfect home within the limited time we had available. He was nothing but pleasant and a joy to work with throughout the whole process! I highly recommend Charlie to everyone I know that is looking for a home, and will absolutely do business with him again!

Charlie listed and sold our home in Sumter, SC. His knowledge of the local market is outstanding. He did a great job of presenting the value of our home to prospective buyers. He provided frequent updates. He was by far the best choice of agent in the Sumter area.

Charlie was awesome. He worked diligently to sell our house and did everything to get as many showings as possible. He had open houses for other Realtors, always provided feedback to us when it was given, and updated us frequently on anything that could affect the selling of our home. He also advertises heavily. His truck has his business and picture on it, I saw his face and name all over town, I see him on Facebook, and would see him advertising at local events. He lives up to his motto and then some, "Your FULLTIME Agent For A FULLTIME Job." Thanks a lot Charlie and it was a pleasure doing business with great people. Less ... More

Working with this man is absolutely the best decision you will make during the entire home buying process. I was from out of state and could only come in to view houses on a four day weekend. Charlie previewed a few of the houses. He offered to take my wife and I around on the 4th of July. We viewed 14 houses that day. It was exhausting, but Charlie made it very easy to compare. Our heads would have been spinning without him. Charlie always promptly returned my calls and emails. I am not a very easy person to make happy. Charlie truely went above and beyond to ensure that I understood the entire process. If he is your realtor, just listen to his advice. I was hardheaded, but ended up doing everything that he suggested. I should have just listened the first time. Less ... More

Thanks so much for taking the time to post this review Mike. I try to make the process as easy as possible since I know it is very stressfull to be buying a home in a short period of time in a community you don't know. I am so glad you were happy with the service I gave you. Best to you and yours especially that new baby that is due soon!

Charlie made me and my girls feel right at home from the first encounter. I had contacted several other realtors and he was the only one who responded regularly to my thousands of questions with "honest" answers on houses and the area in general. He helped throughout the entire process from start to closing. I will be using his services when i get ready to list my home.

Charlie was great and would meet us whenever we asked. With this being the first time we dealt with a realtor we had tons of questions and he answered them all, multiple times. He was a great guy. He really took to my two girls which were a handful during the multiple showings we did. We were lucky and bought a home in his old neighborhood so he really knew the area, people and even introduced us to the neighbors. I would highly recommend Charlie to my friends, I really don't know how else I can say he was great! Less ... More

My husband and I were moving down here from colorado. Charlie helped us find the perfect house for our family. We got a contract started before we left colorado and closed shortly after moving here. Charlie is a great guy and recomend anyone looking for a house to go with him. and ERA wilder realty. Thank you Charlie.
Response fromCharlie Fossett
This was a deal that helped two miltary families....one who had left Shaw and one coming. The buyers were told by their lender they couldn't buy. With their credit score as good as it was I put them in touch with two local lenders and now they are homeowners. Thank you to both families. I love it when a deal comes together!

Charlie was a great help in getting me the property I was looking for. During my one short visit to Sumter he showed me a lot of properties all around Sumter. He did a good job of explaining to me my options and choices. After my initial visit to Sumter, Charlie did a good job staying in touch with me through email while I was working overseas. He stuck with me even though I was hard to please and very demanding on what I was after. He also did a lot of following up with the mortgage companies and the legal teams I worked with to make sure everything went according to plan for my closing. 100% satisfied with Charlie. I would use him again. Less ... More

Charlie is an excellent realtor and he worked hard to make the process as simple as it could be. I actually met Charlie a few years ago through our mutual interest in classic trucks. So, when I started looking for a realtor to sell my home and I saw his picture, I was confident that he would be the best choice to represent me. As a military member who had already left the area, I needed someone who was professional and responsive to my needs. Charlie addressed all my concerns and attended to every detail of the sale including inspections, appraisals, and even performing as my power of attorney for signing day. He not only got the price I was looking for but he also saved me a trip back to South Carolina. I only wish Charlie could help me find a home in San Antonio. Less ... More

I used Charlie as both a buyer and seller. He was professional, very knowledgeable on the local area, schools, and ensured I found the perfect house for me and my girls. As a selling agent, he made sure to find the perfect buyers for my home. He had my home sold in under 6 months in an area where the average is close to a year. He also allowed me to send him a Power of Attorney to save me the expense of the trip back to South Carolina from Missouri! I would highly recommend Charlie for anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Sumter, SC area. Less ... More

Charlie was a great Realtor to work with. He always returns emails/calls faster than you'd expect and is great about hunting down detailed answers to all of our questions. Charlie made the whole process easier for us and we highly recommend working with him, especially if you're going to buy a Hurricane Home!

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
When we received orders to Shaw AFB, I contacted Charlie who returned my phone call after the business hours I was used to, and without me leaving him a message! After that phone call I felt as if I had known him for years, and I knew that he had our best interests at heart. Over the next few weeks he was very active in trying to find us our dream home, and I never went without him checking in for more than one day. It was one of the best experiences we have had, and he couldn't have made the house searching process any less stressful! I highly recommend anyone who is moving to Sumter, SC to contact Charlie, so you can also have a great realtor, who does everything he can to educate you about the area, and gives 110% to ensure you are comfortable with, and ready, to buy a house! Unfortunately we were diverted to NC, but I do not doubt that Charlie would have gotten us the best deal, and would have continued to be completely honest troughout the negotiating/purchasing process. Thank you for all of your hard work, and honesty, Charlie! Less ... More

Charlie Fosset is a dependable and honest man. I recently found I out I was being transfered to Sumter, South Carolina from Texas for work and I immediately began looking for a house. Charlie's ad popped up on the screen so I called him. We hit it off immediately and he was easy to talk to and ask questions of. We corresponded via emal and phone calls over the next several weeks and I had the opportunity to go to Sumter to see him. Charlie was extremely accomodating and even saw me on a Saturday. He answered every question I had and even a lot of questions I didn't know I had. He guided me throught the contract negotiating and helped ensure I got eveything I was asing for from the builder. He is extremely knowledable about the area and I couldn't have asked for a better agent. If I ever have to sell this house, Charlie Fossett will have his picture in my front yard. He is a 5 star guy and is the absolute right guy to buy a house from in Sumter. Less ... More

My wife and I moved to Sumter SC not knowing the area or anybody. Charlie took us under his wing and helped us in not only choosing a home but in so many other ways. If we had any questions regarding a good carpenter or someone to cut our grass Charlie gave us the names of reputable people. He went out of his way to help my us pick up a T.V. set from Walmart since we didn't have a truck and he did. Another thing he did for us was to contact his clients asking them if they required moving boxes (we had plenty and didn't want to send them to the landfill). He treated us like family and we are so appreciative to him. He went above and beyond for us and we recommend him highly. Less ... More

You couldn't ask for a better real estate agent than Charlie Fossett!!! Charlie helped us find a house when we were moving from New Hampshire to Sumter, SC by sending us listings and calling us regularly to keep us up to date. One of the listings Charlie sent us was so well put together with videos and pictures that we decided to put a contract on the home and purchased it site unseen. When we arrived in Sumter, SC we were even more pleased viewing the home in person than we could've hoped seeing it online. We have had no issues with our home and absolutely love it! Charlie really is a true professional and a master of his craft! He answers his phone no matter what and always works to get you the best deal possible. Because we are veterans and used our VA loan Charlie was able to work our deal so that we had no down payment and now closing costs! We couldn't have had a better experience and recommend Charlie Fossett to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Sumter area. Less ... More

I let Charlie know what I was looking for in a home and he found one within a few days. He was there with me through the whole process and answered all questions I had. I knew nothing about home ownership, but his knowledge and professionalism eased all of my fears and made my purchase so easy and pleasant. He has an amazing personality and is a true friend to all of his customers. If I ever get ready to sell or purchase another home Charlie will be the one I call on.

I found Charlie online while we were living overseas. My husband had just received orders and we had decided to start the home buying process. Charlie was very quick to respond and answer all of our first time home buying questions. We started our search online and picked out several houses and areas that we liked. Charlie was very helpful and dropped everything when my husband flew in on leave to do a quick search for a few days. We ended up finding a house that we liked and went to contract, only to have it fall through. Within days of the contract falling through, with Charlie's help, we had a new contract on another house and were able to move in within days of returning to the states. He knows everyone in the area, is very knowledgeable on the market and is just a great guy. I recommend him to everyone I come across that is looking for a home and hope to use him in the future if I need to sell. Less ... More

Charlie listed and sold my home this past spring. I first met Charlie from when my bank (USAA Federal Savings Bank) directed me to him through their relocation assistance program when I was relocating to Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, SC, almost three years ago. So when it came time to sell my home this past spring, I contacted Charlie because of the great experience I had when I purchased my home. I got to know Charlie more when he listed my home and after he found a buyer after my home was on the market for only eleven days. Less ... More

Charlie listened to the type of floor plan that we wanted. He didn't waste our time by showing us homes opposite of what we wanted. He showed us homes in good neighborhoods, also. Charlie made himself available by calling, texting, and sending us pictures as our house was being built while we lived out of town. Most of all, he is well connected with the builder, mortgage processor, real estate attorney, and key businesses in the county. We would choose him again without any hesitation.

I am writing to express my pleasure with real estate agent Charlie Fossett, who represented me in my recent purchase of a single-family home. As a first time home buyer, Charlie guided me through the entire process, from loan prequalification to searching for houses and, eventually choosing my home and closing the deal. I credit him with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience. Charlie is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. I never could have gotten my dream home without him and I would also like to add that I recommended his services to my mother and currently, she is in the process of purchasing a home, thanks to Charlie! She is very pleased and anxiously awaiting the closing of her new home!! To reiterate, my mother and I are nothing but pleased with Charlie and his expertise and we recommend him to everyone!! You will not have any regrets!! Less ... More
