About Me Experience I have been a qualified principal estate agent since 2002 (almost two decades), during which time I have sold many homes over the years, across... the spectrum from homes worth a few hundred thousand to homes worth millions and under a great variation of circumstances. I have very successfully integrated my 14 years’ experience as an attorney, notary, and conveyancer into my real estate practice, along with my studies towards an MBA degree, which provides my clients a very real edge in the market. Along with formidable experience in negotiation, this has also ideally positioned me to attend to more technically challenging sales, like estate sales where I have achieved incredible results, within very short periods of time for both institutional and private executors. I hold a B.Proc law degree through then University of Port Elizabeth, I wrote and passed the CEA qualification of the EAAB, and then subsequently qualified for the Professional Practitioner: Real Estate (PPRE) and subsequently the Master Practitioner: Real Estate (MPRE) professional designations. Technology I am operationally proficient on all the technology platforms used in professional real estate practice. I have also mastered the more advanced skills to the extraction of advanced analytics and the interpretation of these analytics, to the benefit of my client. I have a great proficiency in social media platforms, which is a decided advantage in a world increasingly powered and impacted by these platforms. In addition, I am a photographer, which not only means that in a pinch my photos will pass as professional photos but I also have an eye for effectively staging your property, with the end in in mind – which is making an positive impact on potential buyers and encourage them to choose your home. Expertise I work in commercial real estate, but my speciality is residential sales. Due to the wide range of my clients, I work all over Port Elizabeth, and sometimes even further afield. I am particularly familiar with the suburbs of: Lovemore Heights, Broadwood, Charlo, Mount Pleasant, and Walmer. My unique background and skillset are unique. It allows me not only to ideally position your in the most beneficial position possible within the market, with the best opportunity to realise the optimal price for you home in the least time; but my attention to detail means that I will very often detect potential problems and initiate the appropriate action before it undermines the sale, places the property in a bad light, and in protects you as the seller. Communication Even though I chose to specialise in real estate, my legal practice experience means that I am very focused on communication, to ensure that you are fully appraised of the relevant events in your sale and what is the next step, within the process that I will explain to you. I also try to create a unique artisanal communication style based on what, when, and how you would like me to communicate with you. Clients for Life If I have worked alongside a client, they will in most cases use me for future sales or family referrals. Awards/Recognition I have on various occasions and with various companies won the awards for most units sold. Personal I am married with a wife, Adaire and two children. My daughter is very involved in club swimming and I am very involved as a swimming official. I enjoy learning and am presently completing the last module of an MBA in 2021. My Commitment to You As your property professional, I will guide you through the entire experience of selling or buying your home. My knowledge, skills, experience, and candour ensure you have the required information and advice to inform the best decisions possible. This results in us being able to secure an optimal selling price, in an optimal time.
