Rustenburg agents licensed to thrill

Four enterprising estate agents are planning to take the Rustenburg property market by storm thanks to a novel licence model that will enable them to concentrate all their time and talent on their property clients.
Alida Consalves and Mara Potgieter, two experienced and high-performing local estate agents, are among the first to have signed up for the Notebook licence that has just been launched by the Chas Everitt International property group. They will be ably assisted by Bertha Kruger and Janice Venter.
In terms of the Notebook licence, top performing agents are given the opportunity to start their own fully-fledged estate agency businesses with the minimum of fuss and at a reduced cost, says Barry Davies, the Chas Everitt International group director of franchising.
“The concept is aimed at allowing top agents to own their own business and trade for their own account under a strong brand, without the usual higher franchise costs. The licence grants an operator the right to use the brand, its systems, websites, marketing material and training within a defined area at a far reduced entry and operational cost,” he says.
The Notebook model is currently being introduced countrywide and is expected to stimulate brisk demand among top agents looking for ways to meet the current tough conditions in the market head-on.
Alida and Mara are both licence holders and have decided to form a partnership. They say the licence model will allow them to focus their attention on their clients since the Notebook concept takes most of the administration of running a full franchise off their hands. “It will allow us to do what we do best – matching sellers and buyers in the property market and making sure that transactions are concluded quickly and efficiently.
“One of the main benefits of this system is that we have access to the full support of the trusted Chas Everitt brand name and especially the top quality training the group offers. We are proud to be associated with the group’s high standards and values and are looking forward to bringing the excellent added value associated with the brand to property consumers in Rustenburg.”
The team, who will trade as Chas Everitt Rustenburg, opens for business this month (subs: September) and will officially launch the agency on 3 September.
