RE/MAX Elite hits a 1000

RE/MAX Elite signed its 1000th sale, a remarkable milestone for any real estate office.
Since opening its doors in October 2006, the office - which is situated in the suburb of Plumstead - has been successfully operating in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town for the last seven years.

Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Elite, Charles Haigh, says: “From the day we opened our doors each sale has been allocated a unique number starting with RME 1, our first sale ever concluded in our office. Last week, sale RME 1000 was signed, which in our books is a great achievement, especially considering the market that we have experienced over the past few years.”
He notes that while the office was opened during 2007, which is considered by many as the peak of the boom period, general market conditions took a turn for the worse after 2008. Haigh says that despite these challenging conditions, his office still managed to see growth and achieved relatively high sales figures due to the resilience and calibre of real estate professionals working within RE/MAX Elite.  He adds that having the right agents within the office has been key to its continued success. 
According to Haigh, his office started with just four real estate agents in 2006, but currently has around 19 agents that service clients throughout the Southern Suburbs. “Our growth has enabled us to service more areas efficiently and provide our services to more buyers and sellers in the areas in which we operate. Although the real estate sector has seen its fair share of challenges, we have continued to push forward and provide our clients with a high- level, professional service that the RE/MAX brand has become synonymous with. Purchasing a property is a huge decision and it is vital that consumers deal with a reputable company that will ensure the utmost level of professionalism and integrity.”
Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, says: “The hard work and dedication of RE/MAX offices such as RE/MAX Elite have largely contributed to RE/MAX of Southern Africa winning the International Region of the Year Award for 2012. The success that we have achieved as a brand within the southern Africa region has shown that we can compete with the top performing real estate brokerages in the world and win.”
Haigh says that with the improving property sector and more buyers qualifying for finance in today’s market, his office is looking forward to achieving the next 1000 sales. “The market has seen remarkable recovery over the last twelve months with agents reportedly receiving multiple offers on properties indicative of an upward trend. Homeowners that have purchased property during the recession are bound to see some good appreciation in their property’s value in the near future if they haven’t already. These are exciting times in the market and buyers that don’t take advantage of the conditions might soon miss out,” Haigh concludes.
