About The Charles Cherney Team

Charles Cherney, Cambridge MA Realtor

I am living my life and doing my work with joy. You can count on me every step of the way as your trusted real estate advisor. I have helped 500+ buyers and sellers in Cambridge and Somerville, Massachusetts, and I am here to help you. My work ethic is grounded in Gary Vaynerchuk’s notion that the greatest gift is giving and doing things for others without the expectation of return.

My wife, Candace Bott, works on the Charles Cherney Team. We live with our daughter outside Inman Square in a renovated worker’s cottage.

My work is my calling. When it does not call, you’ll find me with my family. I love the beach and a good mystery novel and a long walk. I value the present moment.
