Charlie first came to Ely, MN as a young man on a canoe trip in 1971. From that point on he knew the Arrowhead of Northern Minnesota was where he wanted to be. Charlie graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater with a degree in Business Administration, and later earned an Associate Degree in Land Surveying from Nicolet College in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. In 1982, Charlie and his wife Sue moved to Ely, working for the U.S. Forest Service as a Land Surveyor. For thirteen years he worked on the Superior National Forest, spending countless hours surveying across the Arrowhead. Little did he know that this time spent with the Forest Service was laying the foundation for the next chapter of his career. In 1995 Charlie and Sue founded Bear Island Land Co. Soon to follow they acquired a local Land Surveying firm and added Bear Island Surveying to the mix. Together they now own these two land based businesses in a beautiful log office in the heart of Ely’s business district. Charlie is an active member with the Minnesota Society of Professional Surveyors and the Realtors@Land Institute. To date both companies have serviced literally thousands of clients and properties across the region, specializing in the sales of lake homes, cabins, undeveloped lakeshore and land. Whether you are selling or buying Charlie’s vast knowledge of the area and expertise in Real Estate and Land Surveying is second to none.
