Charles Spence MRICS - Managing Director
Charles grew up on a family farm in Calbourne, Isle of Wight. After graduating in Land Management, he later qualified as a Chartered Surveyor, then worked for national firms, such as Smiths Gore and Strutt & Parker. Following a five-year period at Jackson-Stops & Staff in Midhurst, selling everything from bijou cottages to sprawling country estates, he returned to the Island in 2004. Charles has since enjoyed continued success in his career, and is responsible for more sales in the £700,000 - £3m price range in recent years than any other property advisor on the Island. A great advocate of Island living, in his free time he relishes the great outdoors, enjoying a range of water sports and mountain biking.
