After twenty-one years with Air New Zealand that included ten years as Inflight Service Coordinator, Charles joined Kellands in 2007 to work alongside Martin Dobson, predominately on the sale of properties on Waiheke Island.


Together Charles and Martin provide a strong collaborative approach with a passionate focus on customer service that seamlessly spans both their home areas of Onetangi on the island and St Marys Bay in the city.  


Their record speaks volumes to their dedication to ensure successful results for their clients.


Dear Martin and Charles,
We wish to record our sincere thanks and delight at the outcome of the sale of our
Waiheke home through your agency. Your professionalism, flair and commitment throughout the process was excellent, you advised and supported us so well, and you kept us fully informed with your regular and detailed reports. Our initial choice of Kellands as agents for the sale of our Onetangi property was based on evidence of your very successful record of sales in this area. The wisdom of this choice was abundantly confirmed by our personal experience of your ability, candour, integrity and friendliness. It goes without saying, that we have no hesitation in recommending you services to other vendors.
- Vendors - Colin and Val Griffiths.


Dear Martin and Charles, Thank you both so much for all your hard work to make the sale at Seventh Ave. You really went above and beyond at every step of the way. It made it so easy having you city side and island side with such a can do attitude. We will continue to recommend you to people wanting to deal with quality agents. Vendors & purchasers - Catherine and Mike, and Bill and Liz


" Martin and Charles at Kellands recently assisted us to sell our property at Waiheke.  We thought they did a great job.  They are very professional in the way they conduct themselves and worked very hard to get us a great result.  Their approach is open and straight up.  They work seven days a week. They are well connected.  They have a strong knowledge of the island.   They chase contacts and potential leads hard. They have a flair for marketing angles. They closed well.  They are fun to work with". D Gibson

"We view Kellands as a leading real estate firm and the obvious choice for high end properties on Waiheke.  We have no hesitation recommending their services and will use them again." Vendor Waiheke Island


I cannot speak highly enough of the service I have received from Waiheke Kellands agents, Charles and Martin. They have taken me through a buy of new property plus a sale of my own property with total vigilance and personal service beyond expectations. Thank you Charles and Martin. Vendor - Judy Cox


"The campaign was faultless, and the feedback every step of the way second to none.
As I had never participated in an auction before, I was a little nervous at first. Having dealt with other agents in the past, I had expected to have my hopes wildly inflated at the outset and then massaged south towards the end, even subtly. But you were nothing but honest and frank with me: realistic without being an Eeyore, positive without being a Pollyanna. All in all, I had a very clear picture of where we were at every step of the way and I knew I could trust you implicitly. And, in the end, the auction process was not at all intimidating, so thank you for that.
Even better, Charles, was your tireless campaign to achieve free publicity for my place. Although I knew it was a long-shot, your motivation and responsiveness achieved a front cover feature in the Herald on Sunday’s real estate section, which added amazing value to my campaign spend and was responsible for sharpening potential purchasers’ resolve a week before the auction I am sure!" Vendor - S.
