Wildlife and conservation were my first loves and I have worked at the Royal Windsor Safari Park, I have been a keeper at London Zoo, and a dolphin and sea lion trainer in the south of France. In 1986 I joined London’s Metropolitan Police and was a detective for 20 years, primarily in offences involving children. When I left I was offered a job as Investigations manager of MAF NZ (now the MPI), structuring a team to administer the Animal Welfare Act. From there I achieved the role of Curator at Auckland Zoo and when the ‘Super City’ restructured I was appointed National Chief Inspector of the RNZSPCA. From these positions I have developed exceptional communication skills that have translated very well into the Real Estate industry.
To achieve all these successes has required determination, commitment, and a dedication to the task at hand. In high pressure roles I adapted to think on my feet, often working “outside the square”, sometimes in high octane situations, in order to solve problems. It is my experience that is my point of difference. I possess a real drive to succeed, and go the extra 100 miles to achieve the best possible outcome for my clients; and I do not stop until that goal is reached. I excel in helping people through highly stressful periods in their lives and I genuinely care for my clients and take great satisfaction from seeing them happy. I work tirelessly, leaving no stone unturned, to ensure that this is so. ‘Failure’ is not a word in my dictionary.
My commitment to you……My Promise
I really do enjoy working in Real Estate and I commit 100%to the task at hand. I am available at all times – I have a number you can call free from my landline to my mobile 7 days a week 06 875 1100 I always return calls, always respond to my client’s needs and always ensure that my client’s understand every step of the process whether buying or selling property. I provide a service that is ‘Nulli secundus’ – second to none. My priority is quality of service and achievement, not simply the quantity of houses sold. I do not aspire to be “Number One” in that respect – I wish only to be recognised for excellence in terms of service and the price I achieved for my clients.
“We marketed our property with another agency for over six months. We spent thousands on marketing, but our property remained unsold. Then we met Charles. We had had six fruitless months and we weren’t hopeful, but we decided to list with him; could he do any better? The answer was quick and decisive – within three days our property was SOLD at a premium price – HIGHER than the list price. Charles is open, honest, super-efficient and friendly – we strongly recommend him.”
James and Kirsty, Rock Isle Rd, Torbay
“From the beginning Charles’ no nonsense attitude and commitment to doing what I wanted made the whole process that much less stressful. I highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home. I told him what I was looking for and within a week he found me the very house I wanted and sold mine, he made the whole thing painless.”
“Having tried for months to sell my house myself, I listed with Charles. Within four weeks it was sold for a good price, and the funds were in my bank. I cannot recommend him highly enough – friendly, professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with”
“Charles Cadwallader approached us regarding the sale of a multi-million dollar property that had been on the market with another agency for a year and 2 months.
From the outset I have found Charles to be a true gentleman, professional, honest, trustworthy and extremely hard working. He truly went above and beyond the call of duty to successfully sell the property for over $4 million in a remarkably short period of time.
I have no hesitation in highly recommending Charles to anyone looking for a real estate representation, he would be my first contact should we choose to sell any property in the future."
