RealNet reopens in Witbank

The RealNet estate agency group has awarded the franchise rights for Witbank to local property stalwart Pieter Loock, who has been active in the local market since 2010.

And having opened for business at the start of June, the franchise has already received more than 45 mandates and its first offers to purchase.
"We have had a great reception in the local market," says Loock. "RealNet is an established and trusted brand name in Witbank, and consumers know that they can expect service of the highest order from us."
At the official opening of the franchise, Loock said he had considered several alternatives before choosing to join RealNet. "I carefully evaluated the business models and ethos of different other groups, but RealNet's values and proven operating systems won the day."
He added that he had worked at different real estate agencies in the local market and thus had the opportunity to evaluate positive as well as negative aspects of different business approaches. "And I am confident that RealNet's highly professional yet flexible business model will enable me to incorporate all the best elements to bring outstanding service to our clients."
Loock says another reason the RealNet brand stands out is its commitment to agent training. "In today's competitive real estate market, highly trained and skilled agents are essential. We are currently recruiting agents and envisage a complement of up to 15 agents in order to fully serve the local market – and although we will only select choice candidates, all our agents will undergo ongoing training through RealNet's highly professional training programme."
Loock, who completed a B Agric Admin degree at the University of Stellenbosch before making his début in the real estate market, adds that he looks forward to building on the brand's strong reputation in the market. "We are committed to delivering the signature RealNet service and to looking after the interests of all our clients, be they buyers or sellers."
