Chuck Newton


Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Bay Street Realty Group

701 Bay Street Beaufort, SC 29907

Chuck is a native of Nebraska who grew up in Wyoming, was educated in Boston, and worked in New York, Atlanta, Hong Kong and Singapore before ‘settling down’ in South Carolina after a 30-year career in senior posts with major corporations and consulting firms. He earned a B.S. from Boston University, an MBA from Babson College and served as an intelligence analyst in the U.S. Army


 Chuck began his exposure in real estate long before he obtained his real estate sales license in SC in 2017.

In the 1980's, then working in management consulting, Chuck helped Merrill Lynch launch its own real estate brokerage product, Merrill Lynch Realty. And not long after, he headed the team for Merrill Lynch that developed and launched the world's first ever home equity loan, Merrill Lynch Equity Access.

Since then, he has been involved in residential real estate transactions in eight U.S. states and two foreign countries – Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Georgia, Maryland, Hawaii, Rhode Island and South Carolina along with Hong Kong and Singapore - during a long career in consulting (and moving around!)

"Real estate transactions are fascinating characters," Chuck says. "There is a lot of work involved matching a willing seller with a willing buyer, and then managing all the little details with the inspectors, mortgage providers, the attorneys and the other agents. An entire orchestra is necessary to make it happen.

"I really love working with buyers in particular. It's a great feeling when it all comes together, and the new property owners walk into their new home with a big smile on their face. It makes all the time and effort worthwhile. Nothing better."
