Charlie Malone joined Bellator Real Estate and Development as a full-time agent. After proving his mettle with over $5M in sales during 2016, he joined forces with his brother and father to strengthen the Malone Team.  This came during the Malone family's 50th year in the local real estate business.  Together with his family, they have done over $20M in sales in 2017.  A former Naval Aviator, he returned to South Baldwin County after years of overseas service.  A fourth generation Naval Officer turned third generation Realtor®, he brings years of valuable experience to the company.  He considers it a great honor to work alongside his father, Bob Malone and his brother and broker, Frank Malone.  Having lived and worked overseas, Charlie is proud to have returned to his Alabama home to continue his career surrounded by the support of family and friends.  He loves the idea of serving the communities of South Alabama while working with his wife, Inese (ee-ness-eh).

Following Charlie’s graduation from Auburn, he started his career in the Navy and served for 25 years as a P-3 Pilot, Plane and Mission Commander, and the Aircraft Launch and Recovery Officer for onboard carriers.  He later specialized in foreign policy in the Pacific and with NATO in Europe.  He commanded a Navy guard battalion in Iraq for one year and lived in the U.S., Japan, Italy and Belgium. He worked throughout Asia and Europe in over 30 countries. Charlie left the Navy as a Commander.

No stranger to South Baldwin County, Charlie grew up around the real estate business, working from the age of 13 for his father, mother and grandfather. Summer after summer, he focused on learning how to serve clients in condominium rentals and beach houses.   Charlie graduated from Foley High School.

In 1989, Charlie graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor degree in Aviation Management.  In 2001 he went on to attain his Masters in International Relations from Auburn University at Montgomery while getting a second Masters in Military Arts and Sciences. Most recently he graduated in 2011 from NATO Defense College.

Charlie has several military decorations including the Defense Meritorious Service Medal, three Meritorious Service Medals, Navy Commendation and Achievement Medals, and numerous unit citations. He was often recognized for leadership and innovation.

While living in Belgium, Charlie met and married the love of his life, Inese.  They were married in October of 2014 at his parents’ home in Gulf Shores. Inese is a native of Latvia and works with Charlie as his business partner.  Charlie has two adult children and a beautiful grand daughter. His other family members include a German Shepherd and a Labrador mix breed.

Charlie is a Certified Flight Instructor, and has a multi-engine and instrument flight rating.  He flies whenever he can, he loves to cook, and has a love of music (sings a bit and has been known to write a lyric or two).
