Top agency in the South joins Chas Everitt

A former winner of the national Property Professional of the Year award (2005), Jacques first made his name in Johannesburg’s new south through his own high-profile agency, Pulse Realty, which he started in 2002, before deciding to join another national group in 2007.

“And now it’s time to move on and grow again,” he says, “and my team and I are really excited about becoming part of Chas Everitt International. This group has a great national infrastructure in place and provides outstanding support to its franchisees, agents and clients. It is also way out in front when it comes to the application of new real estate technologies and in particular the use of online marketing.”

Berry Everitt, group MD of Chas Everitt International, responds: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Jacques on board as a new franchisee, as we have admired his talent, determination and achievements for many years. His agency is undoubtedly the market leader in the southern suburbs and we have no doubt it will be a valuable addition to the group.

“More importantly, Jacques shares the family values expressed in our vision and mission, and through him, our brand will be expanded into this area with the utmost integrity.”

In addition to the new branding, there will be a few other changes at the agency in the next few weeks, including the return of Greg Simpson as manager. “Greg was here at the start of things, when we were still Pulse Realty, and in the past few years has added outstanding real estate training skills to his portfolio, so it will be great to have him back and it will enable me to spend much more time doing what I really enjoy, which is selling homes,” Jacques notes.

The agency, resplendent in its new signage, will however continue to serve buyers and sellers right across the new south and in Alberton, including areas such as Glenvista, Bassonia, Mulbarton, Meyersdal, Brackenhurst and Brackendowns.

This is an active market at the moment, says Jacques, with sectional title units popular among first-time buyers starting from about R550 000, cluster homes available at prices from R1,3m and large suburban homes selling in the R1,5m to R1,7m range.

“It is still difficult for many buyers to access finance, and a significant percentage of sellers do still need to rethink their asking prices, but both buyer enquiries and sales numbers are on the increase and we are confident that with the backing of our new franchisor, 2012 will prove to be a very successful year.”
