I have a strong corporate background where I started in a sales environment in the Banking industry from 1995 – 1999. I mainly dealt with banking products but this gave me a... strong financial background as well as an introduction to selling. In 1999 I changed focus and moved into the home loans sector. I performed the duties of a home loans consultant calling on Estate Agents in my focus area. This is where I found my passion for property and all aspects of the property industry. Whilst I was there I achieved 3rd Place nationally as the home loans consultant of the year. In 2004 I was headhunted by a large mortgage origination company and this gave me more insight into the key players of this market and cemented my passion for sales and the property sector. In 2007 I left the industry completely and started my own small businesses. By 2012 I owned and operated 2 fast food franchises and 5 laundry/dry cleaning franchises as well as a laundry factory which dealt with corporate laundry clients. I never forgot my passion for Real Estate and knew that I always wanted to eventually get back into this industry. In 2010 the opportunity arose for me and my business partner, Margaret, to buy into our first Property.CoZa franchise – namely the Johannesburg South office. In order to focus on this new venture, I systematically sold off all of my other businesses. In 2013 I purchased my second office in Kempton Park. The franchises are consistently in the TOP3 offices of the Property.CoZa brand which currently consists of 36 offices nationally. I have completed my Master Practitioner in Real Estate qualification (NQF5).
