A REALTOR® Of Faith And Community

With a career volume of almost $200 million, it is safe to say that Charles Manley is an outstanding businessman and representative of his growing community. Following his heart led him to a career fulfillment that he couldn’t have imagined, and he is grateful for his many blessings. He is thrilled to show those looking to find their new abode what Columbia, South Carolina, has to offer.

A Leader Is A Dealer In Hope

Before his dive into the real estate industry, Charles was a practicing dental hygienist for 22 years. He was preparing to attend dental school, but his sudden urge to explore entrepreneurship paused that pursuit. He decided that becoming a REALTOR® would be an incredible way to serve his community while allowing him to have the freer lifestyle he always desired.

In 2013, while working full-time assisting patients with oral care, Charles earned his license and started working for EXIT Realty as a solo agent. He sold, on average, almost $20 million a year to 20 - 25 homes per year from 2014-2018.

Because of their amazing brand awareness and their high regard for their staff, Charles happily joined Coldwell Banker Realty in 2018.

Charles states, “My experience, substantial training, proficiency, and profound negotiation skills, combined with Coldwell Banker’s resources, all helped me to provide my clients with inimitable service.”

Charles is very passionate about helping those in the community, who are leaping into the world of real estate, to understand the true idea of homeownership and how it can lead to generational wealth. He aims to teach others what the industry can do for them and how they can elevate their portfolio.

In addition to showing commitment to helping grow his community, Charles also takes pride in assisting in the relocation of military veterans. Since 2015, he has helped many retired military service men and women to find a new place to call home. He is honored to give back to those who have dedicated their lives to serving their country.

Being highly skilled in listings and luxury properties, Charles is the ideal agent to work with when finding the home of one’s dreams. Having extensive knowledge of the local market and what the area of Columbia has to offer makes him the best of the best for guiding newcomers and current residents on their real estate journey.

In 2020, Charles started his own group, Manley Home Team.

Charles states, "Watching my team of agents grow and have their success beyond what they thought was possible has been most rewarding. My team and I strongly desire to serve our community with the absolute best service in the industry. I run my business with excellence, so our clients must have an excellent experience."

Many have acknowledged and supported Charles’s expertise in representing the area's finest properties and numerous clientele. Barbara Corcoran, a real estate mogul and Shark Tank cast member, praises his achievements by recognizing his ability to generate instant offers and guarantee to sell a customer's home. Charles received recognition for ranking 248 out of 250 for RealTrends + Tom Ferry's "The Thousand" in 2021. This prestigious award recognizes the top residential real estate transactions made by agents throughout the United States from the previous year. Regardless of all the accolades, he remains humble and grateful for the many blessings bestowed on him.

Charles defines success as achieving freedom and a lifestyle one has always dreamt of.

Charles states, “Real estate is the gateway to my dreams and goals! My wife and I want to create affordable housing for our area and create wealth for our children and their children. Our goal is to build a business that we never have to retire from.”

While he appreciates his lucrative business and the relationships he develops in the industry, he is always eager to go home to his beautiful wife, Kahlil, and his six amazing children. They enjoy watching movies together, game nights, and attending their church, Truth Church & Ministries, where he serves as a Deacon.

Charles not only desires to deliver an easy-going process for his clients, but he hopes to be a role model for up-and-coming agents. Though the industry is fast-paced and ever-changing, he hopes to instill a sense of responsibility and integrity in future REALTORS® that they may grow to be the best they can be.
