Meet Charlie

REALTOR® 

My positive attitude will sustain you…
My positive outlook makes me generous with praise, quick to smile, and always on the lookout for the positive in the situation. The world looks better around me because my enthusiasm is contagious. I try to find a way to lighten your spirit. I inject drama into every project. I celebrate every achievement. I find ways to make everything more exciting and more vital. I am rarely dragged down. My positivity won't allow it. Somehow I can't quite escape my conviction that it is good to be alive, that work can be fun, and that no matter what the setbacks, one must never lose one's sense of humour.
 
Professional Background
My training and the bulk of my work career (since 1975) was spent in computer systems application software design and development. I specialized in financial and general business administration programs.
 
From there, I developed a hunger for a better understanding of other aspects of business and more involvement with people. I became a student of marketing in 1997 and proceeded to try different applications of my sales and marketing training working in radio sales and marketing, general insurance, printing and graphics and accounting.
 
Personal Background
I was born and grew up in Pembroke, Ontario in the upper Ottawa Valley. I moved to Toronto for postsecondary education. Here I met my wife, Cindy (a native of Toronto) and we got married in 1979. Starting a family made us aware of the need to provide a wholesome place for our daughters Jessie and Megan to grow up so we decided to move to the family friendly town of Vernon, BC in 1990 where we have enjoyed making friends and all this area has to offer.
 
Personal Interests
I love my family and I love music. My darling wife Cindy and I have been married since May 5, 1979. Our eldest daughter, Jessica, was born in 1983 and our second daughter, Megan was born in 1987. These 3 girls are at the centre of my life. They give reason to everything I do. We each share in the joy of being witnesses to each other's lives. We are the best of friends. Jess brought Jon Lumer into our lives when they married in October, 2014 and now we are pleased to be joined by Orwell, their son, our Grandson who was born in 2018. And so the family grows!
 
I sing and play a variety of instruments and enjoy exploring many genres of music including bluegrass, folk, country and rock. I have performed semi-professionally throughout the Pacific Northwest since 1998. One of my current projects include a contemporary rock duo with James Taylor that we call Virgil Caine. You can watch some videos we recently recorded at Frequency Wine and Sound by clicking the links below.
 

Testimonials

 

When purchasing our new home recently, our experience with Charlie was second to none! Charlie was available at a moment’s notice, providing us with the knowledge and resources as we moved through this process. As well, most importantly to us, was that he was also always available for the emotional support that we needed to overcome the obstacles that arose throughout the process. Our expectations of Charlie were exceeded in every way. In this fast-­paced world that we now live in, we found it comforting to feel his personal touch, honesty and true caring. Our appreciation and the opportunity to get to know Charlie will never be forgotten.

Hi Charlie, i was thinking over all the summer events as I drove home yesterday and I just wanted to thank you again for everything you did for us this summer to make our transition easier. You were very kind and considerate realizing what a big decision this was for us, and I really appreciated that! I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

Karina Hettler Life Update: I bought this house. It has 3 bedrooms, a cool master loft, and a basement suite (for rent soon). The garden needs some TLC, overall it's super cute, and I'm a very happy bunny. I really want to thank Charlie Veaudry for everything that he's done for me. I couldn't have done it without you Charlie. You're amazing at your job, and through it all, it was great to have you on my team. House warming games night coming soon.

My house is sold! Thank so much Charlie Veaudry for all your help. I'm very glad I had you on my side. Next step packing up my house!

Karina Hettler, Vernon, BC

 

Charlie, we are in, we LOVE it, and I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for putting up with us, and thank you for your understanding whenever we changed our minds. It is truly our dream home and we probably wouldn't have done it without you!

Andrey and Kristi Skrinnikoff, Salmon Arm, BC

 

Charlie.... We have been in our house for one year! Happy anniversary to us! We LOVE it as much as the day we moved probably more and we talk about you all the time!! It honestly feels like being on holiday every day. Hope you are well. Xxx Bee Geoff and family.

Belinda Rose-Innes and Geoff Bodnar, Coldstream, BC

 

Just a note to let you know we value your integrity. You are a solid individual and I value our relationship. A special thanks in guiding us through our "moving" experience.

Ted and Barb Melanson, Coldstream, BC

 

The showings have finally come to an end. Kevin, the mover, is doing a fine job and we are almost ready to go. I want to thank you so much for your help in selling my place. Professional photography with the online approach is certainly the way to go. It was a pleasure.

Patricia Donahue, Vernon, BC

 

You were such a huge comfort to me at a time when I could barely stand up. I know that you were a lifeline to others in their time of need as well and I like being reminded of you and what you stand for in your updates. You are so much more than an agent. I seriously have no idea why someone would list their place with anyone else. I have never known a real estate agent as genuine, helpful and hard-working as you. You actually are who you say you are and that is very rare. So I spread the seed around and hope a flower or 2 blooms. Guess I sound like a big fan.

Linda Riley, Vernon, BC

 

Charlie, thank you for the wonderful gift. And thank you all your hard work. You truly went above and beyond. We loved working with you and we let everybody know it. All the best.

Tammy and Glen Kawaguchi, Sicamous, BC

 

Hi Charlie, It was brilliant to meet with you and Jayme too! Thanks for much for this 'bonus' information you have included here in this email. Lots to digest and talk about over the weekend. We'll stay in touch and look forward to working with you in the near future. I'll let you know if we have any questions (I"m sure there will be many) Thanks again for your time, I was very excited to describe you to my wife this evening, 'we have a winner' I told her. Take care and stay in touch. Sincerely, Geoff

Geoff Bodnar, North Vancouver, BC

 

We are truly blessed to have you as our Realtor, but more as our friend. We can't thank you enough for your hard work and kindness. Patio drinks at our new casa this summer.

Jen and Troy Hobbs & Whitey Cat, Vernon, BC

 

The most down to earth, honest real estate I've ever met. Highly recommend him.

Kristine Moore, Falkland, BC

 

Charlie is a remarkably personable and knowledgable individual concerning the local Real Estate Market in Vernon BC. He is talented and exceptional in a number of spheres both personal and business.

Rod and Mary Spruston, Vernon, BC

 

Thanks Charlie, you're the best. You made it so easy. All we had to do was keep the place clean and tidy. Yah, we are moving on, having spent 27 wonderful years in Vernon.

Terry and Sherry Thomlinson, Vernon, BC

 

Not sure if you remember who I am, but the last time we spoke was a few years ago when you sold Evan & Janice Winkelaar their home. You brought them in to our office and I helped them with their home insurance (they are still my favourite clients ; ) It was a pleasure working with all 3 of you on that transaction and after that I said to my husband that the day we look to buy, we are calling Charlie for help. Well……looks like we are going to be buying our first home – so exciting!! Do you have some time to help us with our search? In my job I meet and deal with a lot of realtor’s, but none have ever stood out quite like you, so I’m super happy we will get to work together. Thanks so much Charlie, I look forward to hearing from you.

Buying our home with the help of Charlie at Century 21 was a great experience! It was the best thing that ever happened. It was so easy. Charlie referred us to an awesome lawyer and mortgage broker. Everyone that was referred to us was so good to us. James

James Taylor and Cathy Toll, Vernon, BC

 

Thank you, Charlie. What a great job you do of setting up the advertising for this condo. It shows very well in the pictures. I am impressed with the pictures and we are OK with you using whatever methods you think necessary to sell this condo. Thank you so much for sending all this information to us.

John and Joan Cochrane, Vernon, BC

 

Thanks so much, Charlie, for everything you have done in helping us to get our sale. I have appreciated all the updates and the effort to keep me very much involved. Thanks again!

Larry and Arlo Johnson, Edmonton, AB

 

Dear Charlie and Cindy, It's so exciting!! This past sunday was actually the first time I passed right over all the real estate reviews in the sunday paper.....they went straight to the recycle bin! That was a great feeling. I keep driving by the house to see if a sold sign is up so I can go take my picture beside it. Thank you guys so very much for all of your help through this process, you are both so wonderful to work with and I'll highly recommend you to anyone I know looking for a house.

Jen Crane, Vernon, BC

 

Hi Charlie and Cindy, Hope all is going well with you. Jen has so much enjoyed dealing with you guys on her house. Thanks so much for being there for her, it was easier for us to know that someone was watching out for her. She is so excited to be in her new little home.

Cathy Crane, Armstrong, BC

 

Hi Charlie, we can't believe the work you do for your clients. Really good job. Thanks. When you get the condo sold we can look at getting the house sold.

Andy and Dorothy Gauthier, Blind Bay, BC

 

Good afternoon Charlie! Your cleaning team did a fabulous job with the house, thank you very much! I'm working all weekend, but Jeff and help are getting everything moved in today and tomorrow. Carpet and paint coming soon and were very much looking forward to settling into our new home. I hope you can enjoy this long weekend!

Catherine Isernia and Jeff Jones, Vernon, BC

 

Myself and Michelle were very pleased with the deal. We came in without another realtor as we felt Charlie would be able to negotiate a fair deal for both parties. He exceeded our expectations and I would recommend to anyone looking for a property in Shayler to work with Charlie. To be honest, in today’s market it is tough to find a realtor that adds genuine value to a purchase, but value was all Charlie brought. Thanks again to both of you. We are very excited on our first property purchase!
