Testimonials

Tom and Doreen de Roque
"
I wanted to say thank you again for the help in purchasing the Tahoma lot. This is our fourth transaction in the last 12 years and, as always, you have provided professional and efficient management of the transaction. I particularly appreciate you coming to me early, when the lot was initially put up for sale, allowing me to respond quickly with an offer.

Thank you again for all your help over the years!

John and Carol Lettko
"Both Max and Chuck epitomize the best characteristics of what an outstanding Realtor can be. You worked tirelessly and creatively in helping us to acquire our cabin back in 2003 and then showed the same tenacity and flexibility necessary for us to successfully sell it recently. All the while, you maintained an extremely professional and very positive attitude that was clearly felt by both us and the new owners. Carol and I have sincerely enjoyed our relationship with you and consider you both friends and trusted advisers. We would (and have) enthusiastically recommend you to our friends."

"Charles Day of Max Day Realty recently sold our Tahoe home. Chuck sold the property in the middle of a snowstorm. We found Chuck to be very professional and helpful explaining each transaction to us. Prior to listing, he recommended the sale price and gave us statistics of nearby properties. We were very happy with the conditions of the sale and especially with Max Day Realty and Charles Day"

Kevin and Becky Bleibaum
"Chuck Day is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. We started our search for a 1031 exchange investment property in the summer and talked to a variety of real estate agents before we found Chuck. After several discussions with our neighbors and frustrations with other agents, they recommended Chuck. After a great initial discussion, we started working with Chuck and he immediately lined up selected properties that fit our criteria. He patiently showing us many homes, worked with our tight schedule, and helped guide us through the process with ease. Chuck did not push but presented us with many great options. After a couple of months of looking, we found our perfect home, put in our best offer that day, and Chuck stayed late to ensure we submitted our offer that night! He knows the Lake Tahoe area extremely well and always provided key insights into the neighborhoods that helped us make our decisions. Chuck took care of many details and made the process as easy as it gets and I would highly recommended him."

Joe and Mary Crowley
"Chuck Day of Max Day Realty has been Mary's and I singular real estate broker for close to twenty years. Chuck's knowledge of the West and North Shore Tahoe area is extraordinary. His service and willingness to go the extra mile for his clients is indeed, a "one of a kind" experience for all who meet and engage this man. My wife and I, as well as my brother, have worked with Chuck, both buying and selling properties on the West and North Shores. All of our business dealings have been painless, expedient, and in general, effortless transactions, even in the face of difficult or unique circumstances. Professional and easy going, Chuck's low key approach with his clients is a perfect fit for Tahoe buyers and sellers interested in moving on, or away from a prospective property. Simply stated, Chuck Day knows his business and I write this testimonial to recommend Max Day Realty to all interested in obtaining or selling a Tahoe property.

"Chuck Day provided us with outstanding service, amazing follow-through and courteous professionalism throughout our recent property transactions. He and his son, Will Day, were exceptionally responsive and were always there to help us manage everything that came with buying and selling a home at Lake Tahoe – from the most common detail to the most complex document.
Chuck’s honest and diplomatic approach and counsel enabled our transactions to proceed smoothly, successfully and with less stress. We are very pleased to recommend Max Day Real Estate.

Jim and Allison Murphy
"Chuck Day recently represented my wife and me on the sale of our property in Incline Village as well as the purchase of a new vacation home in Homewood. Both of these transactions were complicated by the fact that my wife and I live abroad, separated from Lake Tahoe by 14 time zones.

Through both transactions Chuck was flexible, resourceful and always highly service focused. He made himself available at times that were convenient for us to talk. He was able to leverage his professional network to help us overcome some complicated transactional obstacles and challenging turnaround timelines. He kept us posted with email updates at every step along the way. Chuck and his son Will even went the extra mile to personally ensure that a couple key items of personal property got from our old house to our new house after we had already left the country.

Over the years I have been involved in a number of real estate transactions and I can honestly say that I have not work with a more flexible, service focused, fair minded and effective real estate professional than Chuck Day. I would strongly recommend Chuck to anyone buying or selling a quality home in the Tahoe area."

Pat and Gretchen Crowe
"Chuck Day represented us as sellers of our cabin in Homewood, California. In our first interview with Chuck, we were both impressed. He is personable, easy to communicate with, and his knowledge of the market areas, current market conditions, and other topics pertinent to the sale of Tahoe property is extensive. He is realistic about the value of our property in a down market and the length of time it would probably take to sell. During the listing period, Chuck was accessible and responsive. In negotiations with buyers, he gave good advice, kept the process moving and expectations managed. We closed escrow on the sale of the property within the anticipated time frame, and at exactly the price Chuck had predicted. As a former real estate broker, I have worked with hundreds of other brokers. I would rank Chuck as one of the best. As "just people" going through the sale of our beloved second home, we are thankful for the integrity, clear vision and excellent skills Chuck brought to the table."

Rod and Joan Buntzen
"Chuck Day, owner of Max Day Real Estate, located in Homewood, Lake Tahoe, provided the very best professional service in the sale of our vacation home in Chamberlands. We have known Chuck and his late father, Max, since we purchased an undeveloped lot from them in 1965, with the dream of building a vacation home for our family. Their help in building and continued assistance in maintaining our home for almost 50 years has been kindness beyond measure and is a testament to their dedication to their customers and the Homewood community.

When the time came to sell our vacation home, Chuck was there for us at every step during preparation, negotiation, and escrow processes. His professionalism and understanding of the market as well as regulations and requirements helped not only in the physical day-to-day activities, but with the stress of leaving behind so many fond memories.

Chuck continues a long tradition of professional real estate and consultation services with a genuine concern for people and their families."

Lyle and Carolyn Keating
"Chuck is the most attentive and capable Realtor imaginable. He made our dream home become a reality for us. From the moment we contacted him, he has bent over backward to take care of every detail and communicate with us from all corners of the US. We give him our highest accolades and recommend his services to anyone interested in finding the perfect Tahoe getaway. Thanks again, Chuck, for helping us. We are so happy in Tahoma!"

John and Cathy Stannard
"Chuck represented my wife and I in our search for lakefront property on the West Shore. The search lasted for several years as the right property was never found. Chuck displayed incredible perseverance and continued the search in spite of us almost giving up. Then, in the dead of winter, while we were lunching in Carmel, I received a phone call from Chuck advising us that he felt the right property just went on the market and we should come up immediately. We were ecstatic as we knew the property and had almost bought it 10 years earlier. With Chuck's help and guidance, we immediately closed on the property and have been enjoying it ever since. We already had a home in Tahoe Pines which Chuck quickly sold in spite of a very distressed real estate market.

I would highly recommend Chuck to anyone buying or selling a home, he is the best.

Jim and Claire Brewer
"Claire and I want to thank you for your tremendous work on the sale of our home in Dollar Point and the close of escrow last Thursday. In the most difficult market anyone has experienced perhaps ever you ultimately maneuvered us through it almost effortlessly with your experience and professionalism. In the end you even helped us receive some additional money for the personal property we sold with the home that we hadn’t expected to get.

It’s hard to believe it was the summer of 1996 that some mutual friends, Doug and Janet Sherman, referred us to you to help us look for a vacation home at Lake Tahoe. After looking throughout that summer and early fall along the west and north shore as well as Incline Village, we found the perfect home that November in Dollar Point. After many good times there for five years we decided it was time for a larger home closer to the lake with our growing family and you helped us find another home two blocks away. You also made it that much easier by finding us a buyer for our existing home.

Ultimately our plans to retire at the lake changed and the distance became too great and we decided to sell. That was a couple of years ago and it also was when I made a big mistake. I knew the market was bad and I felt it might be better to use a realtor who was “more familiar” with Dollar Point. Again, when I shared that decision with you, you were totally professional despite your disappointment. Our experience with others couldn’t have been worse and it wasn’t until I called you late last year that the entire process started to get back on a positive track. Needless to say it only took a few months to generate an offer and another sixty days to close escrow.

I know your business started decades ago with your dad and I’ve always enjoyed working with the two of you as you are both such true gentlemen. It’s great to see the legacy continue now with your son. I really like the new marketing tools he has brought to the business and the utilization of the electronic media. It should help you reach a whole new world of people who will fall in love with the beauty of Lake Tahoe.

Thank you again and we look forward to visiting with you when we pass through Lake Tahoe in the future.

"From the very first day to the last day Chuck was a consummate professional. He handled every detail quickly and returned all phone calls promptly.

Kenneth W. Meyersieck
"I enthusiastically recommend Chuck Day as a residential real estate professional in the Lake Tahoe area. We purchased a home that was listed by Chuck several years ago. Through the course of the transaction, we found Chuck to be responsive, honest, and hard working. He continues to be a fantastic resource for us more than two years after we closed the transaction."

Keith and Susan Lee
"I want to thank you for the unbelievable knowledge and service you provided to our family. Your analytical approach helped us develop a deep understanding of the Tahoe neighborhoods, housing styles and market conditions. With your insights, we were able to make informed decisions throughout our entire purchase process.

Additionally, you possess an unbelievable ability to focus on detail. We had no idea the tremendous amount of complexity involved with a real estate purchase in Tahoe. The amount of detail in organizing paperwork, legal contracts, inspections, moving logistics, home warranties, contractors, the Public Utility Commission, our HOA...the list goes on and on. And you managed it ALL. And since we are down on the Peninsula, you managed this complex process remotely. We could not have done it without you.

Chuck, your experience provided us with the reassurance that all our decisions were vetted against an exceptionally knowledgeable sounding board. You were never shy in guiding us when you thought we were wrong. You were supportive and patient whenever we needed more time for our decisions. Most importantly, your dedication was unwavering throughout the process.

Thank you Chuck for your hard work, experience and service. We look forward to working with you again in the future. We also forwarded your contact information to our close friends. Please keep in touch as we are now Tahoe neighbors!

Vicki and Tony Skorupski
"I wanted to take time to thank you for your superb handling of the estate sale of my parent's home in Homewood. Certainly this was not your usual transaction given it being an estate sale, the legal consequences of the probate process and its impact on the sale and the fact that our family was learning on the fly on how an estate sale would work. You showed excellent knowledge for the Tahoe market, from pricing to the closing the sale. Your market analysis was key to getting a realistic selling price that worked in our favor as well as for the buyer since the asking price was just for both parties. I also appreciated how you evaluated the multiple offers we received and your advice on how to proceed on each was invaluable. In addition, the photographs of the house as shown in the handout brochure were magnificent. What a great job on that. We could not have been more pleased with your help and would recommend you whole heartily to anyone looking to buy or sell in the area. "

John Lyons and Diana Garcia - San Francisco, CA
"I'm so glad a friend recommended Chuck Day to us when we were looking for a house on the West Shore! From his in-depth knowledge and experience in the area to his personal integrity and professionalism, Chuck is a top notch real estate broker and agent. Chuck provided us the most professional and personal service we've ever experienced from a real estate agent. Even after we bought a beautiful home he found us in Tahoma, he has been there for us whenever we needed him. Always responsive, reliable, and willing to help you out---this is truly the best service you can possibly expect. We highly recommend Chuck and will always remain loyal clients."

Kent and Holly Ramos
"If you are looking for a West shore property, you will not find a harder working or more knowledgeable, long-established, agent than Chuck Day. He recently helped us locate our dream cabin at Meeks Bay and has been extremely helpful after the sale with advice and trade recommendations for the numerous upgrades we made to our historic little cabin.

Margy Arthur
"It has been a pleasure to work with Chuck Day. When my husband died I decided to lease my house in Tahoma and moved to Southern California to be closer to my children. After I had been in Southern California over a year, I decided to sell my Tahoe home. Even though my house was leased, Chuck was able to work with my tenant to show my property.
Despite the fact that he was working long distance with me, Chuck kept me informed as to the status of my home, and always returned my calls promptly.
Chuck was highly recommended to me and now I know why. I trusted him and he came through for me. My home sold in less than a month!

Jim and Alice Woodside
"It was our good fortune and even better luck to have Chuck represent us in the sale of our home in Chambers Landing. I am a retired real estate agent and am fully aware of the demands that come with real estate sales. They require every ounce of energy and enthusiasm that a person can muster, not to mention the huge amount of knowledge that is necessary. Oh, did I forget to mention patience?

Chuck was so professional and was always able to forge ahead when problems arose. There is no such thing as a problem free escrow. The worth of an agent becomes evident when he is called upon to solve annoying situations, deal with difficult buyers and sellers, and stay abreast of all the unexpected issues that lenders and escrow officers bring to the table. You can be sure they will do that. We could count on Chuck to deal with all of these things.

So, my husband and I wholeheartedly endorse Chuck as the broker that you should use. If you want to be sure that your sale will go through and that escrow will close, he is the one!!!"

Allen and Lisa Dempster
"Lisa and I would like to thank you so much for helping us find our dream house in the mountains. We have wanted a house in Tahoe for many years and when finally had the resources to buy it we were very nervous about finding the right person to help us find just the perfect house but then our friend Roland recommended you to be our lookout for a house that fit our needs and our price range. When we were finally ready to go and look at houses you were ready with a good selection of possibilities and when we selected the one we wanted you made the acquisition process very easy, efficient and effortless. Thank you so much for all your help. "

"Marlene and i would like to express our gratitude for the courtesy, efficiency, and professionalism, which was exhibited by you, in the marketing and sale of our Tahoe home. We realize that the constraints placed on you by our request for no signage on the property and no MLS listing were quite handicapping. You graciously accepted our requests and soldiered on by doing what you do well - selling property. You facilitated the completion of the sale with your generosity and skill. We appreciate you being present at showings and constantly keeping us informed of the process and progress of the sale. We would recommend you to anyone. Thank you very much for your ethics, honesty and integrity."

Lance & Jeanne Bosschart
"Max and Chuck Day have been our trusted Realtors for Homewood properties for almost 40 years. They helped us find our first house and Chuck located a lot and contractor plans for our second home. He recently helped us sell our Homewood property. We recommended him without reservation to anyone planning to buy or sell in this area. "

Scott Hirsch
"My family and I have known Chuck Day of Max Day Realty for close to twenty years. My parents and I have both bought and sold multiple properties with Chuck. Chuck's experience and knowledge of the West Shore is second to none. From his attention to detail to problem solving, Chuck is right on top of it. Selling a home in Tahoe is quite the process and he is communicating with you every step of the way. Chuck is willing to “go the extra mile” to make the process as easy as possible. With his friendly demeanor, professionalism and extensive knowledge base, I would recommend Chuck Day of Max Day Realty without hesitation."

Robert Moore
"My family's relationship with Max Day Realty spans two generations beginning with my father and Max and Jim Day and continuing over the years with myself and Chuck Day. My whole family has the utmost respect for this company, its people and performance over the years in representing many clients on the west shore of Lake Tahoe. I have personally used them on 7 or 8 transactions involving several properties and have always found them to be the most professional and honest people you would ever want to deal with. They are also wonderful people who never forget those people who do business with them once the transaction is over. I could not give a stronger recommendation than I do for the Days!"

Happy In Tahoe!
"My wife and I have known and worked with Chuck Day, and his father Max before him, on multiple real estate transactions on the West Shore for almost 40 years. He is the only agent we have ever worked with and I think that speaks for itself with regard to our confidence in Chuck's knowledge and expertise. Through these years, Chuck has exemplified customer service and has become a trusted friend, transcending his role as simply our real estate agent."

John Abel
"Our experience in working with Chuck Day was exceptional in every way. He delivers a combination of good will, intelligence, outstanding service coupled with 40 years of market knowledge and experience in Lake Tahoe real estate. The unique thing about Chuck's work ethic is that when the sale is complete and most real estate brokers have disappeared, Max Day Realty continues to nurture the relationship. Our real estate purchase in Tahoe was a second home. Since we do not reside in Tahoe full time, it has been invaluable having Chuck Day and his team available to make recommendations on trades, check on the status of ongoing projects, and continue taking an interest in the well being of our investment. Chuck has never failed us and we value our relationship with him and his team at Max Day Realty."

Ken Belfer
"Over the years, I have sold properties in Lake Tahoe using Max Day Real Estate. Chuck Day listed my home in Timberland last September. Within two weeks, we had a contract for sale. As I was not a full-time resident of Lake Tahoe, Chuck took over many duties above and beyond the call of a real estate agent. With his help, we were able to close escrow, on time, on a transaction which was very complicated. Without Chuck's expertise, knowledge and hard work, the sale could never have gone through. He and his team bent over backwards to assist with homeowner-related responsibilities, making the process much less stressful for me as the seller. I highly recommend Chuck Day because of his knowledge, and dedication to serving the client."

Your timely attention to detail has us amazed as there is so much that we could not perform without your assistance. Your cheerful manner and willingness to discuss our concerns was much appreciated and we marvel at your patience in dealing with the buyer/seller demands. With gratitude we remain,"

Mary and Bob Basso
"Seldom can the phrase 'it was a pleasure doing business' be associated with a real estate transaction, but not so with Chuck Day and his dad, Max. From the very first moment we began our search, right through the close and way beyond, they have been there for us, every step of the way. They clearly understand the concepts of customer service and satisfaction and what it takes to have clients for life...like us! They are simply the best."

David T. Giannini
"To whom it may concern:

My 3 siblings and I recently (this last summer of 2013) listed our property at Chamberlands for sale – west shore of Lake Tahoe - with Charles (Chuck) Day of Max Day Realty.

My siblings and I all held equal title to the property, but Chuck was professionally attentive to our individual needs, further complicated by our different locations throughout the state of CA. In fact, through a somewhat complex bidding process, Chuck saw to it that the 6.5% increase of the sales price over our initial asking was expeditiously and peacefully conducted with an all-cash purchase using a short escrow that met with all of our expectations.

If asked, I would not hesitate to ask Chuck to list and handle the sale of my other property at Chamberlands.

Very Truly Yours,

David T. Giannini,
San Francisco.

Lee Schweichler
"We had a great experience with Chuck at every point during the process of finding our Lake Tahoe home on through negotiations and closure. He listened to our needs, responded, was fully on top of all the details, and got the information we needed to make an informed decision. Chuck knows the local real estate market better than anyone in the business. As importantly he is passionate about the business and that translates into his work with clients. He is down to earth, a positive person and great to work with, and takes a position of working very hard to meet each client?s specific needs. We whole heartedly recommend Chuck as THE person to work with in a real estate transaction. None better."

We had very specific wants and they worked diligently to fulfill them. We are very lucky to have worked with such an honest and trustworthy Realtor. From start to finish, we were very well taken care of. If we are ever looking for another house in the Tahoe area, we would go back to Chuck and Will without a doubt and we would encourage others to do the same."

He is the hardest working and most thorough realtors we have worked with and we would wholeheartedly recommend him."

Debra and Russell K.
"When we decided that we would like a vacation home at Lake Tahoe, a friend of ours told us that you were the best real estate agent with whom we might work. We investigated further and all that we heard and saw supported his recommendation. Since that time we have been in four transaction with you. It took us awhile to settle on the perfect location and finally decide to build the mountain home of our dreams. During these transactions, we relied on you for counsel and advise on so many issues. But first and foremost, we know that we can trust your honesty and integrity. Attention to detail gets a transaction closed. Willingness to listen and really understand our desires and expectations, coupled with the experience of a lifetime on the West Shore allowed you to find us properties that met our expressed needs, even as those needs and desires changed over time. Thank you for everything. We look forward to our continued professional and personal relationship."

John and Sue Feder
"We have been fortunate to work with Chuck Day on three real estate transactions over the past 13 years. He initially helped us purchase our first Tahoe home, then guided us tirelessly while we searched for, and eventually found our Tahoe dream home. Most recently, he worked with us to sell the original property to a family new to the Tahoe market. Throughout the years, Chuck has impressed us with his patience, his professionalism, his integrity and his client centered demeanor. We never felt pressured in negotiations, and we always felt that he put our interests first. We have recommended Chuck to our friends who were equally pleased with his services. I wholeheartedly recommend Max Day Realty and Chuck Day to both buyers and sellers of property anywhere around the Lake!"
