About Chuck Hamm. I am California licensed broker (BRE 01455180), a member of the National Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, and Ventura County Coastal Association of Realtors. My first career out after graduating in International Studies from Brigham Young University was with the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a Spanish “Linguist”. For about 8 years, I worked full time for the FBI doing translation of live, recorded and written content. I have owned, sold, purchased, and managed residential and commercial real estate. I understand the paradigm of business owners, investors, homeowners, fund managers, and so on.
In 2004, I started with a small Coldwell Banker franchise in Thousand Oaks, trained by a local and infamous sales “shark”. If you would like to know, I’d be happy to share privately. I soon realized his style was not my style, so I moved to a more business minded and professional environment at RE/Max Gold Coast Realtors. That was about 2 years after I deferred attendance to Southwestern University School of Law, due to family health issues. During those years, I had a great start in real estate, as I grew with the real estate bubble until it popped. During the following years, I continued working and expanding my business despite the recession and real estate market crash. In 2008, I divorced. In the spirit of making lemonade out of lemons, I worked a little harder and obtained my broker license, hired agents and grew the business more. Since then I have also obtained a law degree and passed the California State Bar Exam.
I enjoy all aspects of the real estate business. My focus and strength is in residential sales, from start to finish, all aspects, for buyers, sellers and investors.
