Charley’s journey within the real estate profession has yielded valuable skills and experience that augment his effectiveness in representing clients and properties.

He has served on condo association boards and built lasting professional relationships with community association managers across all intown neighborhoods. His intimate, firsthand knowledge of intown condominium buildings and communities is rivaled by few.

Shortly after moving to Atlanta in 1998, Charley obtained his real estate license and began working as a real estate agent in Midtown and Buckhead. In 2003, he completed his MBA in real estate and finance from Georgia State’s Robinson College of Business. He worked for several years in commercial and corporate real estate before returning to residential real estate in 2006, actively working in all of Atlanta’s intown neighborhoods.

When not working, Charley enjoys time with family, coaching soccer, tackling home improvement projects, and competing in triathlons and distance running events.

Charley is a knowledgeable and professional realtor with a relaxed manner. From start to finish (quick sale!) he answered all my questions in a timely manner which made this process go smoothly with less stress. Would highly recommend.

Charley's professionalism is unparalleled. He was incredibly helpful every step of the way: to start with, he really understands the local market and he helped set a realistic price (my condo was the only one that wasn't recently renovated, yet he advised against listing it at the lowest price for the building - he was right). I was selling my home remotely and he was instrumental in organizing everything from (extremely fairly priced!) repainting to getting necessary HOA details. He's very responsive, he understands the stress that the process involves and he went above and beyond to make it as pleasant as it can be for all involved. I received an offer very close to the asking price the first day the property was listed which I ultimately decided to accept and he managed the negotiating process with great skill. Charley helped navigate all the bureaucracy involved and explained every cost beforehand. Finally, when the lawyers informed us that fixing a previous clerical error in a property tax document would not be included as part of their service - something I have been trying to fix for several years - he managed to change it within a DAY. Last, but not least, Charley was exceptionally respectful, knowledgeable and understanding - having Charley in your corner makes selling your home seem effortless! Highly recommend!

Charley Corkran was the consumate professional in assisting us with our recent home search and purchase in Atlanta. We have purchased two other homes in other cities over the past 10 years, and though the agents were quite competent, in retrospect they didn't really compare to Charley. He was on top of everything, from school zone questions, to alerting us about innacurate info in certain listings, to legal questions, to negotation strategies -- you name it. We felt extremely well informed, but we also felt like Charley was handling everything for us. In addition to his exactness, thoroughness, reliability, and organization, Charley also had an amazing personal touch. We felt very secure that he was looking out for OUR interests, OUR needs, OUR concerns, and OUR wishes. Months after closing on our house, he is still helping us and continues to provide support and advice on the home. I honestly could not more highly recommend someone.

Charley was amazing to work with! He was professional, went above and beyond what I would expect a real estate agent to do, was well informed and did a great job navigating me through the market and options. The list to sell process went smoothly and it was all because of the hard work Charley put in. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling in Atlanta.
