Charlottesville Virginia is a fine place to live!    

You may be looking for the perfect place to live, a place with the "Quality of Life" we all want. I found such a place in Charlottesville Virginia and I want to share it with you. Find out why I live and work in Albemarle County Virginia and why I am a Top Real Estate Agent in Charlottesville Virginia. 

My passion is to help you find the right Home, Land, Farm or Estate in Charlottesville Virgina! I feel there is a "Conflict of Interest" when a Real Estate Agent tries to represent both the Buyer and the Seller in a transaction. I am a "Buyers Agent" and as a Buyers Agent, your interests are my priority!

Rising Above your Expectations!!!

There is never a conflict of interest when you work with me!   Don't be fooled by agents that try to do everything. Here is what I will do for you:  

1. Evaluate a properties advantages and disadvantages

2. Do a full research of a properties history

3. Show you the pro's and con's of the areas in and around Charlottesville

4. Negotiate with the seller on price and terms

5. Never allow a sellers interests to interfere with yours

I am Licensed to sell Real Estate in Virginia

Charles McDonald®'s Blog Posts



Many of my clients know that I moved to Charlottesville in 2001 from the West Coast. I searched for a place to raise my children in a area that has the values of a small town and the excitement of a big city. In a nutshell, I was searching for the quality of life we all deserve. After extensive research I found Charlottesville, Virginia!

If you are considering relocating and found Charlottesville, please give me a call. I will share with you the wonderful experience I have had in finding Charlottesville and the various reasons that I decided to live in Charlottesville over all other choices from coast to coast!  

Warmest regards,     Charles

P.S. I utilize technology to give my clients the advantage of a full service "Buyer's Agent". As you can see by my website (which I designed and maintain). All agents are not alike, find out why I am a top Charlottesville Real Estate Agent, ask my clients!


What is a REALTOR?

Many people are surprised to learn that not all real estate licensees are REALTORS. REALTORS are members of the National Association of REALTORS, and are pledged to abide by the 17 Articles of the REALTOR Code of Ethics. The Code came out in 1912 and predates many license laws issued by real estate licensing boards. Typically, REALTORS spend many extra hours continuing their real estate education. Consumers having problems working with a real estate licensee must address their complaint to the Virginia Real Estate Board, a state government agency, which licenses brokers and agents. Those having any problem or concern with a REALTOR have the additional option of addressing that with the REALTOR's local Association.

Testimonials for Charles McDonald®

  • Calvin and Marianne Baker

    Charles, I just wanted to say thanks! You were a most excellent advocate for us and always available. You were patient with our lack of expertise, and your knowledge allowed us to rest comfortably in your dealings with the selling party. It wasn’t an easy deal by any means, but you got us there. You were prepared for our responses each time. Thanks for taking the time to get to know us and what we wanted and could manage. This will be a great property for us, our family and our horse.

  • Irene and Charlie

    Hi Charles, Charlie and I so enjoyed our time with you! Your love of Charlottesville is infectious. We didn’t feel like we were with a real estate agent, but rather with a friend, passionate about his community. We felt heard and understood, the result of your masterful listening skills; you continually checked understanding of our requirements, refining as needed, which assisted us in gaining clarity as well. Your broad knowledge base and brilliant engineering mind left us feeling confident that we were in good hands. Thank you kindly for your generosity of spirit; we are blessed to be working with you. All the best, Irene and Charlie

    When I was planning a move to the Charlottesville area from the San Francisco Bay Area, Charles came highly recommended, and it wasn’t without reason. He listened to everything I wanted in a home, and we spent a day together looking for homes that met my needs and my price range. He was so spot-on that I ended up buying the very first house that he showed me! He negotiated well for me, and made the process very easy from searching to mortgage broker to the closing. Charles has been open to my questions even after my closing, and I feel taken care of in the community because of how available he is. I’m a happy first-time home owner for nearly two years now, and I will definitely go to Charles again next time! I’ve recommended him to friends, and will continue to do so!

  • Dr. William and Heather Highlander

    While doing many years of business, it is a rare opportunity that you meet someone of genuineness, kindness, knowledge and caring that you continue to stay in touch with them after the business comes to completion. My husband and I found such that person in Charles. He led us through every aspect of searching for the property we needed and followed through with us long after we found the home of our dreams. It is a wonderful feeling to know that there are still people in this world like Charles who lead from his heart, as well as his mind. Thank you, Charles
