Charlie Pitkin

Charlie Pitkin


Following his heart and his passion for biking and goal of becoming a professional Duathlete, Charlie arrived and settled in Austin more than 15 years ago. After his arrival he quickly discovered that he had found his paradise, he made the decision this was where his home and future family would reside.

Shortly after arriving, he met his beautiful bride, Adrienne, who is the mother of his 2 children, Ava Rose, and Ella Maria, and his lifesaver. Charlie is grateful for the wonderful life he gets to enjoy every day residing on Lake Austin and is a strong believer in giving back. In fact, for Charlie and his Realty Austin team giving back is the cornerstone of their culture that stems directly from our mission to support those who need safe and affordable housing in Austin. They work as a team to fundraise and volunteer for organizations that have had a lasting impact on multiple generations of Austinites. Since 2010, our generous agents have volunteered over 11,000 hours, donated over $900,000 of their commissions, and raised over $100,000 from industry partners to support our strategic partnerships with Austin Habitat for Humanity, Foundation Communities, and Austin Children's Shelter.

Shortly after moving to Austin, Charlie became actively involved in its thriving technology scene. Joining Dell in 2002, he quickly rose through the ranks and was awarded numerous small business sales and team player of the month and year awards. Within 5 short years, Charlie became one of Dell’s most profitable agents, team players, and valued employees. As a reward for his efforts, Dell gifted Charlie and Adrienne with 2 all expenses paid Hawaiian vacations. It was on their 2nd vacation in 2007, Charlie felt divinely called to follow his lifelong passion for real estate and boating while sailing off the coast of Maui. He mustered up the courage to risk leaving behind their secure life and livelihood and threw caution to the wind. It helped that he carried the entrepreneurial confidence of his Grandfather, Father, and Surrogate Father who were all successful business leaders in real estate, boat, and shoe industries in his childhood stomping grounds of New England. As a side note, little did he know, in addition to these business venture plans, they would also be bringing home a stow-a-way from Hawaii, their oldest Ava Rose.

Within a month of returning, Charlie left Dell and unknowingly jumped headfirst into the Great Recession as a fledgling entrepreneur and father. Hindsight being 20/20, it was launching his real estate ventures in the challenges of the Great Recession that caused Charlie to go back to his small-town roots of doing business by referral. Working as if he is still doing business in a town where everyone knows his name, is the #1 reason Charlie believes he’s a Top Producer at Realty Austin today.

What's more, Charlie has developed a vast construction experience, having now restored 3 homes in some of Austin’s most endeared neighborhoods. Learning the skill of hands-on construction has fulfilled his childhood desires to be like one of his childhood heroes, Bob Villa. Charlie has also put his energy into developing meaningful and strong relationships with Austin’s architects, contractors, building trades and everyone in between. These relationships combined with his unique skill sets acquired from years of building property in Austin become a true advantage for buyers and sellers and set Charlie apart from every other realtor in Austin.

Charlie’s clientele also benefits from the talents and local knowledge of his sales team; Christine McCarty, Transaction Coordinator, REALTOR®, Christine has been a licensed Realtor since 1998 and brings so much to the table. Throughout her career, she has had experience in residential real estate sales, title and the mortgage business. Most of her career has been spent running the office of Top Producers. Christine is happily married and has two beautiful step-daughters she enjoys spending time with. She also believes in volunteering and giving back to the community. She devotes countless hours to charitable causes that are close to her heart. Jacquelyn Stamper, Listing Marketing Coordinator. She graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University with a degree in Business Marketing. In her free time, Jacquelyn enjoys traveling with her husband, exploring new restaurants, and spending time with friends.

These relationships combined with Charlie’s hands-on knowledge of Austin’s real estate market become a powerful and effective advantage for both buyers and sellers. Charlie looks forward to hearing from you. You can reach him at 512-484-4518 or

Charlie was fantastic from start to finish. He helped us think through a myriad of things as we considered buying our current house. We loved the house, but it was quirky and needed work to help fit our family. Charlie was instrumental in providing guidance and even getting quotes for us on work we needed to consider if we bought the house (fencing, ac, garage). All of this was much appreciated and helped us come to a final agreement we felt right about (not to mention the seller and seller's agent were beyond challenging to work with and played lots of games). On the sale side, Charlie was just as instrumental. We trusted him and invested a decent amount of money in getting our house ready to sell, and they were rewarded with 7 or 8 offers on the first weekend and sold above asking price! I have recommended Charlie to friends and family and will continue to do so. He does a fantastic job and goes above and beyond.

Charlie Pitkin was such a pleasure to work with. He was always available to talk and work through the process of purchasing our home. Even after the sale he was very quick to respond with any questions we had and help make the whole process stress free!

We loved everything about the process. I felt like Charlie handled everything very well. I had a ton of questions, being a first time home buyer and I felt like I was able to call you at every point and every question. I especially loved when Charlie had his roofer and window guys come out and double check our inspection. Seriously, so helpful! I never really understood what all Realtors did but from what I am picking up after working with Charlie is that he speaks the truth, so we were fortunate to have worked with someone who had a ton of knowledge, long-standing relationships, and patience with us. We will always recommend Charlie to our friends and colleagues and will always use him for our family. Bravo Charlie!

I've been in the banking/mortgage industry for (35) years. I can honestly say I have not worked with a better Realtor than Charlie. His sincerity and honesty shine through. I'll see you when I come back to Austin in March. Thanks for making our life transition easier.

Jim and I first heard about Charlie over 7 years ago when a work colleague recommended him to us as we were planning our move to Texas. He worked hard to help us find our dream home and we were not disappointed. When Jim decided to retire so we could pursue other dreams we both knew we wanted Charlie to help us again and were delighted to find him with Realty Austin!

Charlie had our best interest at heart both times we worked with him and we were especially struck by his honesty and character. His advice and suggestions were spot on and our home sold in a day with multiple offers. Thank you, Charlie! We honestly love you as a Realtor and a friend and wish you all the best!

Charlie did a fine job helping us buy our home. We thank Charlie for all of his hard work and helping us buy our home, and I would highly recommend him and Realty Austin to others.

Charlie had a video done of our view lot by a drone and added the song "Just Outside Of Austin" by Luca Nelson to the video. It was very effective and captured the feeling of the "hill country." We took a cash offer first day of listing and closed in just 15 days. Charlie is a very talented Realtor, and also a great son!

Rob and Ruth Pitkin

Charlie was extremely helpful and accommodating in guiding us through our first home purchase. He probably understood our preferences before even we did, but was patient as we looked at countless houses and finally zeroed in on the right home for us. We would certainly never use anyone else.

Chris & Sadia Hellums

We worked with Charlie Pitkin and he was amazing! Extremely professional yet personal and funny! Buying a home is one of the most stressful times in one's life, and between all the businesses involved our experience was flawless. I would and will absolutely use Charlie for any further home purchases.  

Jennifer James

Charlie Pitkin listens intently as to your housing needs. Even if you forget along the way, Charlie will prioritize what is important to you. This makes life easier, even if you're not thinking in that direction at the time.

Greg Parkes

Charlie Pitkin is, hands down, the best real estate agent in Austin. He continues to provide top-notch service to us and everyone we refer him, every single time. His staff, systems, his level of professionalism and excellence will leave you looking forward to your next home buying experience. I could not recommend him more highly. 

Chris Cowden

Charlie knew what he was doing, he was always calm and you could tell he always had a backup plan. Can’t say enough good things about him.

Mike & Anissa Dickerman

Charlie either had all of the answers or would get them in a timely manner. Also recommended different ideas to me to help sell my house sooner.

Jimmy Smith

Charlie is the best! He is very personable & knows his business. He is a "go-getter", does everything possible to make a sell & never gives up. He is exactly what we were looking for in an agent!

Jack and Sandy Burnett

I trust Charlie so much, I referred my mother to him. That makes for a whole family of happy Desai’s.

Sid Desai

Charlie and the whole team made it fun and easy for Lyndsey and me. We had previously tried to find a home to purchase two other times before we found Charlie. He is unlike our two previous Realtor experiences. We felt like he listened to us and genuinely cared about what we wanted. He went above and beyond our expectations. I would send friends or family to anyone but Charlie after our experience. Thanks, Charlie!

Lyndsey & Wade Slaton

We are so pleased with our experience, from beginning to end. It’s priceless to have a great team behind you when making the biggest purchase of your life. Thank you, thank you!

Timothy & Clairann Terry

Placing my home on the market was so stressful, but with Charlie’s expertise and continued words of encouragement and faith, it was also an exciting adventure! I was very excited when I sold my house and completely overwhelmed with excitement when Charlie helped me sell and buy my new home.

It is everything I have ever wanted and more! He always had a great attitude, courteous, and I felt very confident when I signed my papers because he helped me understand the fine print. I have already recommended Charlie to several of my friends and family members, and know that he will provide them the same professional service he gave my family and me.

Gloria Quinonez

Charlie is knowledgeable and provides fast client service. He utilizes technology to make it easy on the customer. He is a GREAT listener and shows the kindest patience and problem-solving ability in dealing with people and unexpected situations. Charlie has the best manners and way about him. He is a pleasure to work with. I will highly recommend him to my family and friends.

Jordana Barton

We had some unique circumstances regarding selling our home and getting into another one. Charlie was with us every step of the way. He was committed to finding the best solutions possible for our situation. He was extremely patient with us as he listened to our needs, desires, and concerns. His professionalism is unparalleled to any Realtor we’ve ever worked with. We wholeheartedly recommend Charlie Pitkin for your real estate needs without reservation.

Gaylen & Simone Washington

Charlie’s assistance in the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home went above and beyond my expectations. Charlie is unfailingly pleasant, knowledgeable, and efficient with your time. I would recommend Charlie to any buyer or seller (and have already recommended Charlie to my friends many times).

David and Joan Carlson

Since we were downsizing, we were not looking forward to either selling our home or purchasing a new smaller home. Charlie was able to help my wife and I prioritize our expectations and manage them throughout the process. Our home sold for almost exactly what he thought and yielded what he had projected. Charlie always knew what to say and when and provided valuable resources and reminders all along the way. We were very pleased with our selling and buying experience.

Paul Leach

Charlie does an awesome job. When we purchased our home in Austin last year we were moving from Wisconsin. We bought our house sight unseen off of the internet and due to Charlie's superb Realtor skills the transition went very smoothly. He went out of his way to take pictures and videos and to keep us in the loop at every step in the process. We are now in our home and love it. Charlie continues to keep in touch with us informing us of things that are happening in the community as well as informing us of people and businesses in the Austin area that might be able to help us with small or large tasks around the house. We were very pleased with our experience. Charlie is more than a Realtor we feel like he is a friend. Anytime someone needs a Realtor to buy or sell a home, we would recommend Charlie.
