Charles St. George, Broker:
I would like to give a brief history of how ST. GEORGE REALTY started.

I have been in the real estate business since 1953 with my first sale in 1954. Many things have changed since then, but my goal is still the same in offering lower commission rates, prompt and courteous service.

I was a Village Trustee from 1970 to 1971. In 1971 I decided to run for Mayor of Fredonia and was elected for four consecutive terms (1971-1979). At the same time I worked for the Allegheny Ludlum & AlTech Steel Corporation for 32.5 years in the accounting department, with the last 13 years as Payroll Supervisor.

In 1991, I then ran for the Fredonia Central School Board and was elected to a 5 year term. In 1983, I was then appointed as Treasurer for the Village of Silver Creek, where I stayed in that position for 2 1/2 years.

After graduating from Fredonia High School in 1943, I was drafted into the service and elected to serve in the U.S. Navy. After my 6 month boot camp training in Sampson, I was transferred to Philadelphia where I was assigned to the newly Commissioned U.S.S. Alaska (CB-1).

I served most of my military life in the Pacific which included the Battle of the Philippines, invasion of Iwo Jima, invasion of Okinawa and finally in the China Sea Patrol.

Even with my busy schedule, I have coordinated the ALASKA Reunions for more than 25 years. I am also editor of the ALASKA newsletter, NORTH STAR, which is mailed to 300 members three times a year.

After my marriage, in 1950 I decided I would like to sell real estate as a part time agent. My first broker was the E.A. Strout Realty which was a nationally known real estate firm. After becoming a broker, I started ST. GEORGE REALTY with my first office being in my home.

I enjoy my real estate work very much and it is my wish to continue serving the people of this area and offer all my years of experience in selling your home or purchasing a home.

As the former Mayor of Fredonia, I am deeply interested in and knowledgeable about our community. Let us help serve your needs.
