Here are a few of the benefits when a buyer or seller works with me.  We offer FREE use of our moving truck for our customers and along with that we provide FREE moving boxes to help people with the move. 

My business partner is Mel Beaudry and he has been in Real Estate for about 35 years.  I joke that he invented Real Estate. I have been in the business almost six years.  Mel, Myself and our assistant Jody form the Discovery Team.  Our slogan is "Discovering the best move for you!"

Mel and I are Christians and active combine our faith with our work.  "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." (Proverbs 16:3)  If you are in a challenging market, now more then ever, its calming if you know what I know - which is that is a PROMISE. 

Back to more information about Real Estate: 

I work hard to keep up to date on the good deals in the foreclosure - bank owned - distressed properties.  Each day I look through over 300 listings that have either come on the market or been reduced in price.  So the buyers that work with me know about the great deals that are avalable and often times my buyers are first to a property allowing them to get an offer in before other people have even looked at it.

I handle first-time buyers with extra care.  I take a consultative approach.  I don't try to sell anyone any specific home; rather I guide them through the process by educating them on the options available. 

I work the north metro area in the Twin Cities in counties like Isanti, Anoka, Sherburne, Wright, and Hennepin. 

I also have become for active online.  I BLOG on  - my website http://www.results.net/chuck.carstensen -  - I social network on FaceBook and Twitter.  

I graduated in 1999 from Saint John's University with a degree in Communication.  I grew up on a FARM in tiny Browerville, MN.  Thats 25 miles from Little Falls.  About one hour from St. Cloud.

My hobbies and interests outside of Real Estate include: Sports, Reading, Writing, Fitness, Singing Karoke, Personal Development and more.   

Favorite Sayings: "Procrastination is the assassination of your destination!"  --- "We are not born winners or losers, but rather choosers!"

I am a co-author in the best selling book series Wake Up...Live the Life You Love.  The book is now available at http://www.theprosperityleader.com/products.html! I have started speaking, not only about real estate, but also about Personal Development topics.  Basically Motivational and Inspirational speaking.

Ministry: I am very active in my church and outside of my church.  I believe our work can be our ministry.  I do my best each day to live as a faith witness and share my faith with others.
