About Charlie

I started out in real estate just over 14 years ago, after spending the first 25 years of my working career in telecommunications. It was time for a change and a mate invited me to join him at Buller Real Estate, so I thought “why the hell not!” 14 years on and a whole lot more grey hairs and I’m still here and still learning. I’ve done okl and the reason for this is I see myself as a people’s person – I like to get involved with clients at their own level, in their own comfort zone where we all feel at ease. I’m definitely a “call a spade a spade” person and find its way better to tell it how it is, before you tell them what they can obviously see for themselves. I suppose I’m a bit rough around the edges but that’s me.   I don’t like to kid people that I know something when I don’t. The best advice ever given was to learn to listen and this was harder than I thought, but worth its weight in gold. There’s not much I don’t sell in real estate, covering residential, rural, commercial and business. I also get called upon to provide assistance in the tri-annual Government Valuation rounds and guess I have a reasonable feel for the market. I never “buy” listings and I’ll always tell you how I see it. No surprises means no explaining to do later. Another belief I hold is don’t sweat the small stuff or you’ll get consumed and miss the big stuff.  As Branch Manager and partner in Property Brokers Buller, I feel privileged to be part of such a wonderful group of people.
