RealNet opens in the Cradle of Humankind

The RealNet property group has opened a new office to serve property consumers in a vast area between Mogale City and Pretoria South and beyond Magaliesburg to the north.
The franchise has been awarded to Eben le Roux and Hanneleen Roos, both stalwarts in the RealNet stable. The pair opened their first RealNet office in Constantia Ridge in 2008, followed by the adjoining Weltevredenpark area just a year later.
“We started our business in probably the most challenging times the real estate market has ever seen, but through attention to basics, applying sound business principles and adhering to RealNet’s values we have gone from strength to strength,” says Le Roux.
“We saw great potential when the franchise in the magnificent Cradle area became available and having identified a top manager and business partner in André van Niekerk, we had all the elements for another successful real estate office,” he says.
Van Niekerk says rural businesses, residential and agricultural properties, as well as peri-urban estates in this region will receive specialist attention.
“The Cradle has property listings to suit most tastes,” he says, “from a historical landmark property in Maloney’s Eye on 400ha of prime Highveld land at R15m, to the affordable, attractive, modern, and secure townhouse and cluster developments in Pine Haven Estate.”
He adds that holdings in the semi-rural regions are in high demand. “Luxury modern homes on properties ranging from 2 tot 5ha are available on the Oak Tree, Steynsvlei and Muldersdrift agricultural holdings within 20 minutes of the Sandton CBD and with easy access to the N14, while efficient, sustainable smallholdings, that provide excellent value for money and a small-farming lifestyle, are available in the Tarlton area. Holdings surrounding the Krugersdorp Game Reserve are just 10 minutes’ drive from the centre of the vibrant small town.”
RealNet The Cradle offers agricultural know-how specific to the area, he says. “We are conversant with the water availability in specific regions and can advise buyers on the best cash crops per area while our network will put clients in touch with the right people for the right advice to help them make the ideal property investment.”
Prices of smallholdings range between R800 000 and R12m for units of between 1 and 5ha while prices of larger holdings and small farms range from R900 000 to R10m. Guest houses, lodges, resorts and boutique hotels are selling at prices of between R2m and R25m and stands of between 1000 and 1500sqm with luxury homes in eco and wildlife estates at Kromdraai from about R2m.
Townhouse and cluster units in residential estates such as Pine Haven sell from R600 000 to R1,5m while full-title units are available at prices of between R1,5m and R4,5m.
