Property performing well in Benoni

Early in 2009, all sales associates with the RE/MAX Rangro office in Benoni signed a declaration that they would not succumb to the pressures of the recession. The results speak for themselves judging by the office awards recently held at the RE/MAX Randgro Imbizo, where the strategies and marketing plans for 2012 were also launched.

Jan Grové, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Randgro, paid tribute to the professional team of sales associates for their commitment to service excellence resulting in a 32.3% increase in sales compared to the previous year. “The exceptional achievement and results can mainly be attributed to the dedication and passion of our team and of course the exclusive, world-class training and a respected brand name,” he said

The event was officially opened by Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, who also provided an overview of 2011, who congratulated RE/MAX Randgro on its successful year. He said that despite all indications of slow and steady trading conditions for the 2011 year, RE/MAX of Southern Africa posted its best winter (June – September) sales results in the history of the company. “Added to this, the group’s sales figures for January to October were up 30% on the same period last year, while December’s sales results hit an all time high.”

The occasion also earmarked the RE/MAX Randgro’s annual awards, which are a prelude to the national awards that will take place the end of February at the RE/MAX of Sothern Africa convention at Sun City.

The RE/MAX Randgro sales award achievers that were celebrated were divided into different award categories which are based on commission earnings. The achievers include:
The Silver Club awardees, who achieved more than R5m in sales, were announced as Terri Teunissen, Karen Labuschagne, Lyne Boyers, Jacqui Newman, Marika Grové and Christine Furner
The 100% Club awardees, who achieved more than R7.5m in sales, were announced as Alet Allis, Fernando Dos Santos, Wendy Dos Santos, Marlene Currie, Lynne Heger, Rina van Wyk, Charl Burger, Warwick Bonnette and Laura de Stefani.

Gold Club awardees, who achieved more than R12m in sales, were Mary Andalaft, Lidia Zorrer and Juanita Louw, while Christine Roberts was awarded Platinum Club status for achieving more than R16m in sales. Rhoda Toker, Teri de Beer and Brenda Penny made up the Millennium Club category awardees for achieving more than R22m in sales.

Talking about the year ahead, Grové said: “As for 2012, the expectations are for an improvement in property market conditions over last year, despite the continued global financial turmoil. The economy has not yet stagnated and the demand for accommodation increases daily.”

He said that with interest rates at a 37-year low and house prices also offering buyers good value for money, there has never been a better time for consumers to boost their asset base by acquiring an additional property - especially credit-worthy investors/homeowners who have extra equity in their properties, and who therefore can apply for gearing to raise a deposit for the additional property or properties.

“Although a nominal capital growth, if any, can be expected in the short term, investors should be patient because the market will eventually turn around again - as Mark Twain once said: ‘Buy land, as they’re not making any more of it!’  Buyers and property investors must always remember that real estate should be regarded as a medium to long term investment,” Grové concluded.
