Head of Carter Jonas’ Oxford office, Mark Charter celebrating a milestone of 25 years service


Mark joined Carter Jonas 25 years ago in July 1991

Mark joined Carter Jonas 25 years ago in July 1991 as a graduate in its rural property team having graduated from the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester. Starting in its Marlborough office, his career was in its rural property team. He moved to its Oxford office in 1995, and in 2000, moved across to the residential sales side. He rose to equity partner in 2005, and in 2009 became the Oxford office’s head, responsible for the 95 plus-strong team based in Summertown.

Mark advises private property owners, including many celebrities, and institutional clients in the sale and purchase of country and city residential property across Oxfordshire and surrounding counties. He is also a valuer of high-end property and estates for leading banks, accountants and solicitors in addition to advising many private and institutional property owners.

His career highlight so far includes selling Garsington Manor, a Grade II*-listed historic Jacobean house which sits high on a hill on the southern edge of Garsington village, looking south-west across the Thames valley to the Chilterns. It had a guide price of £6.5 million and generated interest from all across the world. Many members from the office joined Mark in a drink to help celebrate his milestone. Mark was treated to plenty of balloons and a 25 shaped cake, festooned with the company’s logo and colours!

Adding his compliments, Mark Granger, chief executive officer, Carter Jonas said: “Many congratulations to Mark on 25 years’ of loyal service to the business. He has gained an exceptionally strong professional reputation for providing trusted advice to our many clients. Mark has been a really great contributor to the success of Carter Jonas in the time that he has been with us - a period of great change. At the same time, he has involved himself, on a voluntary basis, in organisations that have a great impact in the Oxford community.”

Mark Charter said: “I am honoured and fortunate to have a career where I get to advise on some incredible buildings, and witness Oxfordshire’s breath-taking architecture. Clients tell me that for them, it’s about continuity and trusted advice. I’m proud to have long standing relationships with many clients including Blenheim for over 10 years, many of Oxford’s colleges, and a private American client whom I have advised for 20 years. My day is never dull and I lead a superb team that has endless energy and drive, which keeps me young!”

Carter Jonas’ Oxford office is the city’s largest independent property consultancy, employing more than 95 people. With client demands constantly changing, the firm’s focus is about adapting to those needs, hiring the best possible talent, keeping the continuity, and providing unrivalled property advice.
