Meet the Team

Charles Orlebar FNAEA MARLA
MAPIP Founder and Director

An estate agent for 3 decades having refined my craft over the period within corporate firms, high profile London agents and a practice of Chartered Surveyors and Auctioneers. Setting out on my own back in 2003, I am delighted that we have built up a successful business that has been established in the region for over 15 years! A family man living locally with our two boys you'll regularly see me on the school run and running between one school club and another when not working!
