Former Brisbane Lion Jamie Charman has joined the real estate ranks.

The former Premiership winning ruckman has been appointed as a sales agent in the Ray White Albion office in Brisbane's inner north-east.

Charman told the local paper he's always been passionate about real estate.

“I actually worked for Ray White Corporate part-time while I was still playing, so it feels so right to come back to this great brand — it’s a household name,” Charman said.

“I’ve always been passionate about residential property, and have bought and sold through Ray White many times.” 

Charman owns two houses in Brisbane with his wife, Calexico director Nicky Charman. Their most recent Hawthorne purchase was bought off-market through Ray White New Farm.

Charman had been involved in the AFL inner circle since retiring and was even hired for a brief period as a part-time kicking and catching coach for North Queensland Cowboys in the NRL.

He had been the commercial manager for the Lions for a number of years following his 2011 retirement. The last two years he's been working with a commercial property company in the inner city.

“During my professional and footballing career, I always bought and sold property and did my own small developments so property has always been a passion of mine and I'm looking forward to helping people in this exciting field full time,” Charman said. 

“For me, the move into real estate is not a huge leap but I am really excited by what the future holds.” 

“I know what the auction process feels like for both the vendor and the buyer. I have been on both sides, so I have a good understanding and empathy for anyone going through this process. 

“I know it’s a stressful time for many buyers and the property market can sometimes be difficult to navigate." 

Charman's career began in 2000 when he was picked as the number 29 draft pick for the Lions from the Sandgate Hawks. 

He made his Lions debut a year later against Fremantle and played in the Lions' 2003 grand final victory.
