When he was 9 years old Charles Doering remembers his parents laughing when he told them that he was going to retire at 45. Fast forward to 36 years later, and at 45 Charles had achieved his goal, but like the old adage, be careful what you wish for, he soon discovered that early retirement was not for him. I felt this huge void during the day. I felt like a fish out of water, and my kids would tease me about being a lazy bum, so I thought, I better do something. That something turned out to be selling real estate. In just 3 years as an agent, Charles had become one of Re/Max Twin City Realtys top performing realtors in the K-W area, attaining membership in the Re/Max Executive Club and the 100% Club Awards.
By using his vast and varied 30 years of business experience in the automotive industry, he has found a way to do what he loves best; working with people and helping them attain their dream home. Charles grew up in New Hamburg and has lived in Kitchener, Ayr and Plattsville. After working for years as a journeyman and then as the Manager of a CAD/CAM engineering department, he became a partner in a local industry leading tool, die and metal stamping tier II automotive company. Within 10 years he and his partners grew the business from a 25,000 square foot plant to a state of the art 86,000 square foot facility. Throughout the 15 years as partner, you automatically wear many hats. I was the customer liaison involving every aspect of the sale from costing to completion.
After selling his interest in the company, and achieving his long planned goal of retiring at 45, a business colleague offered him a position as Program Manager for Magna International. For the next 15 months Charles travelled to Europe and Asia during the engineering and design process of the BMW X3 program. This work proved invaluable in understanding other cultures. My time with Magna allowed me to interact with people from all over the world, to be sensitive to and better understand different cultures. When I meet with people from other countries I can understand where theyre coming from. Once the contract with Magna was over, Charles knew he was ready to try something new.
I missed the interaction with people and I was used to making hundreds of decisions every day. Problem solving and helping people is what I do best. I love people and coming up with solutions to problems is what drives me. I always bought and sold real estate for myself, so the transition to real estate was simple. Using his broad knowledge base and depth of experience, Charles deals with both residential and commercial properties in the K-W area, as well as in Sudbury, London and West Nipissing.
I’ve been going to Northern Ontario for 40 years. My parents had a cottage in West Nipissing and I own a home on the lake. Its a small community and I know lots of people there. It was a natural transition to sell real estate in that area. With his strong work ethic and ability to relate to people from all backgrounds, Charles understands that the dream of owning a home is one that most of us have from early on. Having a professional on your side when you are taking on possibly the largest financial transaction you will ever have is important. He believes that coming up with a strategy based on each individuals needs combined with prudent planning is the best way to get the results you want. Whether you are a first time home buyer or someone looking for investment property to grow your personal wealth, Charles would be happy to share his expertise in real estate with you.
I feel compelled to dig in and do what it takes to help my clients. I love going the extra mile. For more information on buying or selling your home, please contact Charles Doering, Sales Representative, RE/MAX Twin City Realty Inc., Brokerage.
