Principal / Director
A love of both the rural and ocean-side lifestyles drew Charlie Markham to the beautiful Northern Rivers of New South Wales, an area he now proudly calls home.
Together with his wife, Julie-Ann Manahan, Charlie owns and operates Raine & Horne Ocean Shores, a business focused on providing service excellence. Having already established a strong reputation based on the delivery of outstanding client service, the couple chose to align themselves with Raine & Horne, an organisation which comfortably reflects their values.
After first entering the industry in 1969, Charlie gained his Real Estate licence in 1970 and went on to become a Life Member of the Real Estate Institute of NSW. For over 20 years, he served clients in the northern districts of Sydney, in the suburbs of North Ryde, Eastwood, Epping, Macquarie Park, Marsfield and surrounding areas. During that time, he owned and operated two of the region’s most successful offices – Gordon & Quance in Eastwood and North Ryde. Over more than 30 years in the industry, Charlie has amassed a wealth of knowledge in the areas of management, marketing and finance, which he happily shares with both staff and clients.
Charlie’s approach to business and life is to be open, enthusiastic and honest, which has seen him establish an enviable reputation throughout the property industry, as well as a dedicated client following. In fact, Charlie continues to receive a steady flow of referrals from his long-term clients to this day.
Charlie takes pride in his ability to understand your individual needs, then exceeds your expectations by sharing his comprehensive experience in property transactions, providing guidance and reassurance when you need it most.
He is a proud Granddad to four gorgeous grandchildren who live with his son at Mount Tamborine in the Gold Coast hinterland.
Charlie and Julie-Ann currently reside in the Byron Bay hinterland, where he indulges his passion for the land - and his goats, chooks and birds.
