My name is Johan Barnard. I am an electrical engineer who has been working in a small electrical consulting partnership for the past 12 years. Prior to that, I worked in various... Municipal Undertakings in the electrical engineering field doing electrical designs, specifications, project management and short- and long-term planning. I remember going for an interview once and being told by the person interviewing me that he thinks I will do very well in sales. This made me wonder if I could really sell something. I remember the preceding two years prior to joining up with Realnet Platinum, being bombarded with seeing ‘For Sale’ signs and every time being prompted to try the real estate market. I finally bit the bullet and joined Realnet Platinum in October 2018. My first sale came from dropping flyers in my farming area. One of the owners recognised my face and asked whether I would like to market his house on an open mandate. At that stage his property has been in the market for a long time with other agencies and he was getting a bit desperate. We managed to get a buyer for the property. It was such a great feeling to be of service to old friends of mine!
