Charles Maurer

Husband, Father, Educator, Realtor. I wear many hats throughout the day, but my favorite one
is being a father. I am happily married to my lovely wife Brittany and unlike most families, our
family was started in a unique way. I have two boys, Aiden and Noah, both of whom were
adopted. Aiden is in Kindergarten and was diagnosed with Autism a few years ago. Being a
parent to a son with special needs offers its own challenges and learning curves along the
way. My other son Noah is 5 and is also in Kindergarten. Although his first few days were not
typical, he is doing very well. My goal is to inspire others by sharing my family's story.
