My profile / Kind words / Testimonials about Charles Gubbins


Important attributes when looking for an agent to help you buy or sell a property would include honesty and integrity, responsiveness, knowledge of sales and the purchase process, communication skills and negotiation skills. Testimony to my having these qualities can be read in the “kind words” here below.


Stephanie and Charlie are a fantastic real estate double act. First of all they listen and secondly they are patient. Sotogrande is a big area and when you’re looking for a home you have a lot of ground to cover.  You need guides who know the market, the people and the geography.

They live, work and play in Sotogrande and when you’re looking for your home this knowledge is priceless. They are also pragmatic, helping you decide what you may want but highlighting what you really need – be that a view, a mooring, a pool or more.

When you are ready to buy they guide you through the whole process which may differ significantly from what you’re used to.  You could not wish for a more friendly, professional and knowledgeable team to help you through the purchase of your dream home in Sotogrande. We benefitted massively from their combined support when we bought and are delighted with our new home. Thank you both so much.

I have dealt with many realtors on the buying side over the years. I have to say Charles is one of the best I’ve worked with. His professionalism, patience, attention to details and to our needs, responsiveness, and in-depth knowledge about Sotogrande was great! He was able to negotiate a very good deal for us. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. I highly recommend Charles!

“Having dealt with Charles for several years now, I find him to be an extremely professional, patient, and trustworthy individual, which is critical when buying or selling property overseas.

The level of after service from Noll Sotogrande Real Estate has been excellent borne out of the fact that I have relied heavily on Charles maintaining and keeping a watchful eye on my property during the recent pandemic.

I can highly recommend Charles to anyone seeking to purchase or sell a property in Sotogrande”.
