Meet Our Advisors

With a combined 40 years of experience in commercial real estate investment sales, we have an unwavering dedication to meet and exceed your investment goals. Our four-man team took different geographical paths to Aline Capital and Greenville, which means we have excellent knowledge of southeastern markets. We strive for long-term relationships, rather than short-term cash flow, and get there by understanding the clients we work with, their needs and their goals.

Charlie Timmons

Director, Aline Capital
SC REC 88274

Charlie is a deeply rooted native of Greenville, S.C. In 2013 he began his CRE career underwriting middle market, retail and office, value add deals. He has worked on all sides of land, office, retail, and multifamily. Charlie is preceded by several generations of real estate experience and is lucky to have viewed real estate brokerage through the eyes of an investor, not a salesman, from the very beginning. His strengths are financial analysis, creative solution-based thinking, and relationship management.

Prior to CRE, Charlie lived in Shanghai where he worked with a private equity group focused on pharmaceutical retail and distribution, and hospitality real estate. There he was responsible for investor relations, strategy, site due diligence, and local community relations.

Charlie is a graduate of the University of South Carolina with a degree in economics. He also serves on the board of directors for Pendleton Place, working with at-risk children. There he helps manage strategy, operations, fund raising, and properties and facilities. Charlie also serves on the Christ Church Episcopal School Alumni Board.  He believes in giving back and has also worked in lesser capacities with several other organizations in Greenville. Charlie has also been on multiple mission trips to Haiti. He speaks frequently about how incredibly happy the majority of Haitians are. The contrast in attitudes between Haiti and home can help keep things in perspective. Outside the office, Charlie enjoys family and friends, traveling, camping, hunting, fishing, skiing and the outdoors.

John Drummond

Senior Advisor, Aline Capital
SC REC 108545 | GA REC 401832

After receiving double concentration degree in financial economics and accounting in 2018 John went straight into CRE.  He worked briefly for the RMR group where he was exposed to a dozen processes and responsibilities, but focused on budgeting, audits, management, and negotiating government, vendor, and leasing contracts.  Afterwards, John’s work as a multifamily, mobile home sales advisor at SVN was successful, but short lived before joining his team to form Aline Capital. 

Now John focusses on multifamily investment sales and is successful at developing new relationships and matching buyer and seller needs. He spends his time outside the office with his wife, biking, camping, and fly fishing.
