I’m Alette and I come from a Hospitality Background that expanded over 27 Years. I got into Real Estate deciding to ‘retire” out of the Corporate world and join my daughter in... Durban and have now been in real estate for 6 years. I have owned four homes, have rented properties in my earlier years and also bought investment property to let. I have been a “Landlord for the period of 6 years” and during this time the most valuable part of having an investment property which I chose to let, is, to make sure that the property was well maintained and presented for the duration of a lease period. Well maintained properties are easier to let and find the ideal tenant that will also take pride in maintaining the pride and upkeep of a property. My personal interests and hobbies are: Arts and Crafts, Catering Projects, Serving Charities such as SPCA and “ Reach for a Dream”, Floristry and gardening. Benefits in Listing myself as an Agent: • In terms of a Letting agent, I place tenants that are credit worthy by doing all the FICA requirements, follow up all references and doing a thorough. This way we have placed tenants on long term leases whom often purchase the actual unit . • I liaise on an ongoing basis with landlords and keep them updated with trends and market requirements. This is very important for landlords that lives “Out of Town” or Abroad.
