Grass Valley dates from the California Gold Rush and it's first post office was established in 1851. The town incorporated in 1860.
Grass Valley is the location of the Empire Mine and North Star Mine, two of the richest mines in California. George Starr, manager of the Empire Mine, and William Bowers Bourn II, the mine owner, donated mine property which became Memorial Park. The Empire Mine California State Park is a great way to get acquainted with the history of the region.
Grass Valley still holds on to its Cornish heritage, with events such as its annual Cornish Christmas and St Piran's Day celebrations.

What my clients are saying
"Chuck became more than a Realtor. I knew from the very first meeting, he was a friend and truly had my best interest at heart. He worked tirelessly for me in an impossible situation for the very best outcome. Honestly, through even a disappointment, he was faithful and steadfast, always encouraging and kind. I could not ask for anything more from any person. I am eternally grateful for him walking me through things I knew nothing about with generosity and tenderness and patience. Thank you so very much, Chuck for all your kindness and generosity. He is such a man of integrity, completely trustworthy.
"Chuck impressed me with his professionalism As well as rapid follow up. I would highly recommend him. He also is a great negotiator and tried to get us the most out of the property. A man of integrity"

Chuck was great to work with. We were looking to move up from San Jose and wanted to find a house in the Auburn area. Chuck lined up a number of homes that met our criteria for us to look at when we came up for our two days of "house hunting" and worked with us long-distance to negotiate and close out the sale of a great house. This included arranging for contractors to bid on and start work on some changes necessary. I would highly recommend Chuck to anyone looking to buy a house in the area.

Never gave up, and checked each prospect to make sure they were serious buyers.
He knew what he was taking about, knew what was needed and what would help sell and what would not. Friendly and frank. A pleasure to work with.

"Chuck Townsend has done a wonderful job selling our property. He faced many obstacles on the way but came through beautifully. I would highly recommend Chuck as a realtor. Chuck’s wife Elise is also an asset. She staged the property and everything looked great. I was more than pleased with Chuck as our realtor!"
We are very grateful to Chuck Townsend for helping us find a beautiful peice of property in Foresthill. Chuck provided excellent advice on how to evaluate the cost/value of raw land based on how much site work would be required (water, electricity, sewer/septic, etc) and referred us to a contractor to get a preliminary estimate on construction costs. We learned a lot in the process, and were able to make an informed decision. Thank You Chuck!

"I wish to recommend Chuck Townsend of Intero Real Estate Services! I have worked with him and his clients for 3 years and find him to be a honest and hard working real estate agent. He is a wonderful man, and takes good care of his listings and purchase clients and has been a great agent to work with over the years. I rate Chuck Townsend with 10/10 stars!!"
“I must admit that I was blown away with the amount of work that Chuck has done to help us with this transaction.
The property was originally offered at a price above market. Chuck did an amazing job of analyzing all of the comps in the area and preparing multiple documents that convinced the seller to move forward with our offer.
He helped us resolve the hand full of offers / counter offer issues related to rent back arrangements and other details. He has also taken a huge amount of his time to coordinate all of the follow up activities (inspections, appraisal, etc.) so that the escrow can close without any hitches.
If you do not already have an agreement with another Realtor, it would be worth your time to give Chuck a call to see if he can help you.”
