Meet the Team

Charlie Panayi

I am an exceptionally experienced, very friendly and accomplished Negotiator and Business Manager who is now responsible for managing all Red Squirrel Property Shop LTD clients. As the Managing Director I am very committed to ensuring that each Red Squirrel Property Shop LTD customer receives a stress free, first class service. Originally coming from a customer experience industry, property started out as a hobby for me, having been investing/letting/developing properties for 13 years. I have had 13 years of personal experience in both London and Isle of Wight in sales, lettings, developing and managing properties. I firmly believe in the personal and honest service that Red Squirrel Property Shop pride themselves in and I use my direct approach with all customers to try and help understand their requirements so I can help them in finding their dream home, selling within a reasonable timeframe or letting a property out promptly for them. Separate to this I also head up the worlds largest independent financial advisory, that gives our customers the benefit of putting their properties worldwide to high net worth customers.

Outside of work

Outside of work - I tend to spend most of my spare time with friends or family. Outside of that I am a keen sports enthusiast, playing football at least two times a week, gym and other exercise classes. Travelling the world is something I have always ensured I do, I aim to visit at least two new places a year around the world, whilst making sure I can fit in surfing and scuba diving!

Eileen Punter

I am a Director and shareholder of Red Squirrel Property Shop. I was brought up on the Island, and I have been a professional landlord, property manager and property developer for over 30 years during which time I have developed a comprehensive and incisive knowledge of the lettings industry on the Island and in London. I’m always friendly and very approachable and remain acutely aware of the considerable responsibility and trust that landlords place in the team. I’m also accredited by the London Landlord Accreditation Scheme, a member of the NLA and the Isle of Wight Executive Landlord Group all helping to fully understand, first hand, what Landlords and Tenants expect.

Outside of work

Out of work I love spending time with my grandchildren (Reggie, Theo, Marcia, Toby & Ruby). I will often take them out for the day, it could be down on the beach, to the cinema or even on a nice walk. I also enjoy reading, swimming, entertaining friends & family and decorating my home.

Stuart Punter

I am a Director and Shareholder of Red Squirrel Property Shop. I have many years of experience and have worked in several large Estate Agencies, starting out as trainee negotiator and working my way up to Branch Manager of a major corporate branch within my first 4 years. I am City & Guilds accredited, and recognised by the Property Ombudsman Scheme. Brought up on the Island, my wife and I decided to open Red Squirrel Property Shop LTD to offer our future clients a more personal, professional and local approach to buying, selling and letting. I have listened over the years to what the public expect from their agent and have found most agents fall short of expectations. By learning from their mistakes, I was determined to buck the trend and deliver a new set of standards in Estate Agency.

Outside of work

Within my spare time I enjoy doing a variety of things. Of course, I enjoy relaxing, this could be at home with my family or friends, or at the beach on a nice summers day. I also enjoy gardening and travelling.

Outside of work

I love nothing more than exploring both on and off the Island, creating memories whilst my children are still young. I have a passion for woodcraft; it allows me to switch off from the world and create something normally pretty good at the same time.
