RE/MAX Movers and shakers

As the RE/MAX brand’s 40th anniversary year, 2013 has been a remarkable one for RE/MAX of Southern Africa in terms of growing the RE/MAX footprint throughout the country and others within the African continent, says Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa.
He notes that RE/MAX of Southern Africa offices have recently opened in some previously uncharted areas where the brand had little or no presence before. This is particularly true for the Western Cape where two new RE/MAX offices have opened their doors this month. RE/MAX Elite, headed by Broker/Owner Charles Haigh opened in Tokai and RE/MAX Living opened a branch in Camps Bay with Gerlinde Moser, Neville van den Berg and Susan Watts at the helm as the Broker/Owners. 
“Both Tokai and Camps Bay are attractive investment options to property buyers due to the lifestyle offering they provide,” says Goslett. “Situated on the foothills of the Constantiaberg, Tokai is a unique residential suburb that offers residents green belts of pine plantations at their doorstep, while Camps Bay is often referred to as South Africa’s Cote d’ Azure and is one of the most popular suburbs situated on Cape Town’s Atlantic Seaboard. Although very different from each other in terms of the kind of lifestyle the offer, both are prime locations for property investment.”
He notes that the new offices will not only expand the brands presence in the Western Cape, but will also give RE/MAX of Southern Africa the opportunity to service a greater number of buyers and sellers in the region. “With the property sector gaining momentum, it was a strategic decision to open RE/MAX offices in areas that are seeing a growing demand in order to offer a comprehensive service to property investors in those markets. We believe that the RE/MAX brand will add considerable value to the real estate sector in these areas as well as to individual buyers and sellers.”
Goslett reports that apart from the recent new offices that have opened, other offices have renewed their franchise contracts for a further five years due to the fact that the RE/MAX formula has proven to be a winning combination, with the average RE/MAX office outselling their competitors. RE/MAX All-Stars in Alberton North and RE/MAX Coast & Country in Hibberdene recently renewed their franchise agreements, while RE/MAX Platinum in Rustenburg was taken over by Glenn Norton, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Masters.
Norton was awarded the International Broker/Owner of the Year for 2012 for a multi-office situated in a metro area earlier this year at the RE/MAX International convention, which took place in Las Vegas. Over the last five years, RE/MAX Masters has ranked in the top two multi-offices in the RE/MAX of Southern Africa fold and during 2012 they recorded the highest number of property sales transactions for an international brokerage in the entire RE/MAX network. Norton aims to carry this success over to the Rustenburg office.

Whether new offices or renewed franchises, all offices aim to provide the excellent service that has become synonymous with the RE/MAX brand. “The goal is to add value by assisting property investors through the process of purchasing property and making sure that the experience is a pleasant and relatively hassle-free one,” Goslett concludes.
