Charlie Crocker MRICS
Charlie graduated with a Masters degree in Real Estate Management and went on to join the graduate scheme at Jones
Lang LaSalle in London. After becoming a Chartered Surveyor and with JLL, Charlie specialised in Residential Valuations
becoming an RICS Registered Valuer, with the Prime Central London team.
In 2012, after 5 years with JLL, Charlie moved to Rio De Janeiro where he created a residential fund acquiring a small
property. This continues to be managed on a profitable short term rental basis. Charlie expanded his interest in the sector
by working with an established luxury villa rental company. At the end of 2014 Charlie formed Van West Property which
provides Investment Consultancy, Property Management and Brokerage Services.
David, an American, arrived in Rio 4 years ago with a love for football, probably because of a Californian upbringing which
also helped him settle into Rio De Janeiro's city/beach lifestyle. As a history graduate (UCLA) he appreciated the richness
of Brazil's past and the development of Portuguese colonial culture. He has been able to bring to Van West Property his
extensive experience as a Real Estate Appraiser - LA trained; and with his languages - English, Spanish and Portuguese,
he is considered an asset in the ongoing expansion of Van West Property.
