Personal Summary
Raised in Golden Valley, Minnesota, Charlie started working construction for his father when he was 11. In order to make big bucks, he pursued a bachelor’s degree in fine arts and graduated with a master’s degree in fine arts from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro.  Returning to Minnesota in 1994, a series of related jobs led him to commercial real estate development, which he has been active in since 2001. His eclectic background and range of experience works well with the type of properties Hillcrest acquires.
