Born and raised in the greater Philadelphia area, Chuck has been passionately involved in real estate sales, management, relocation and technology since first obtaining his Hawaii real estate license in 1988, as co-founder of the boutique luxury real estate firm, Antonsen Garrett & Associates.
Over the past 30 years, Chuck has held executive leadership roles at several luxury, independent and franchise real estate brokerages in Hawaii. He joined Corcoran Pacific Properties - Hawaii’s only statewide franchise - in 2018. As Principal Broker, he oversees brokerage sales and operations on Kauai, Oahu, Maui and Hawaii Island.
Also active in the broader real estate industry, Chuck volunteers with numerous professional organizations including the Real Estate Business Institute (where he served as 2012 Hawaii President), the Residential Real Estate Council (where he served as the Hawaii Technology Leader from 2012-17), the Relocation Directors Council (where he served as 2021 National President), and the HiCentral MLS Board of Directors (where he currently serves as Vice-President).
Chuck’s broad range of real estate knowledge includes experience as a broker in the Christie's International Real Estate, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Sotheby’s International Realty networks, as well as the Director of Implementation Services for a leading multifamily property management software company, leading a team that managed HUD Section 8 and LIHTC tax credit software implementation for affordable property management companies across the U.S.
Ironically, his first job at age16 was part time janitor at March Realty in Willingboro, N.J., where he first experienced archetypes like the “Rainmaker Broker-Owner”, the “Top Producer”, and the “Husband and Wife team”, all while keeping the office clean and the open house signs in order.
Education has always been an important aspect of Chuck’s career. Over the years, he's earned numerous designations and certifications including: Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), Certified Residential Broker (CRB), Certified Relocation Specialist (CRP), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Global Destination Specialist (GDS), Graduate Real Estate Institute (GRI), and Military Relocation Professional (MRP).
With family across the U.S. Mainland, Chuck loves to travel. He also enjoys time with his husband at their home in Kaneohe, on the Windward side of Oahu. As self-described geek and avid reader, Chuck is also a podcast junkie; the perfect companion to yard work, his favorite downtime activity.
