About Stewart & Co.

Estate Agents & Property Managers in Belfast

Established in 1963 by David Stewart, Stewart & Co. is a family business on the Belmont Road in East Belfast.

Today run by David's son Charles, supported by wife Karen and longtime friend Lyndsay Patterson, the Stewart family still holds dear the underlying principles that started the company 50 years ago.

With a Building Surveying degree and over 20 years in property management, Charles is often the first port of call for advice on all things property- related.

With a door always open policy, a strong grounding from his father and a wealth of knowledge gleaned from his own experiences… Charles is the backbone of Stewart & Co.

Charles is hands-on in all aspects of the company, ably assisted by his skilled team. Clients and Tenants can expect to receive a personal service and excellent continuity of care.

Stewart & Co. covers all aspects of property management and sales, within Belfast and beyond. From commercial and residential sales and lettings to ground rent collections and renovations, Charles and his team offer a professional and bespoke service.

Charles Stewart


Charles was born into property management, helping his father David in the family business as soon as he could lift furniture. He studied Building Surveying at Glasgow Caledonian University, worked for Belfast City Council Building Control Department and started his own property portfolio in his early twenties.

Having worked alongside his father for many years, Charles took over the family business in 2006 when David retired. He has overseen the steady growth of Stewart & Co ever since and guided the business to its current respected position in the local property market.

Karen Stewart

Office Manager

With a background in Marketing, PR & Administration and married to Charles, Karen joined the family business in 2015.

Organised and efficient, Karen is perfectly equipped to handle the marketing and administration strings of Stewart & Co., as well as dealing with Ground Rent collection and front-of-house enquiries.

Lyndsay Patterson

Property Manager

Lyndsay's association with Charles and Karen Stewart goes back over 20 years and she is considered very much a part of the Stewart & Co. family. Lyndsay brings over a decade of property management experience to her role, having worked at various local estate agencies before joining Stewart & Co in early 2019.

With her approachable personality and can-do attitude, Lyndsay is an ideal addition to the Stewart & Co team, handling all aspects of property management with charm and expertise.
