Aida opens in Northcliff

Real estate group Aida National Franchises has opened a new office in
Northcliff, one of Johannesburg's premier suburbs.

Aida Northcliff is co-owned and managed by Riaan Keet and will serve the
Northcliff, Blackheath, Berario and Quellerina areas.

Keet, who has a legal background and was previously active in property law,
says opening his own estate agency - in partnership with his brother Anton -
makes good sense since it will enable them to offer a one-stop property
service to clients, from selling homes through to the registration of bonds
and transfers.

"We decided to open an agency last year and started researching the big
estate agency groups. We chose the Aida brand due to its established name in
the market, the excellent agent training it offers and the backup it can
provide. We were also very impressed with the professional manner in which
the group conducts business," he says.

Apart from six agents, all residential area specialists, the office has just
appointed a specialist retail property manager, Pierre Martin, to head up
its commercial rental division. Keet says this division will serve the whole
of Johannesburg and expects to make a quick impact on this sector.

In the residential market, the franchise plans to concentrate on the middle
and upper-income sectors. Keet says there is a wide variety of property on
offer in the Northcliff area, ranging from sectional title units priced at
R750 000 upwards to luxury homes costing as much as R20-million. The average
selling price of a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in the area is around

The thing about the property ladder is that at some point in our lives we all have reason to want to climb a rung or two higher. Sometimes, it’s because we’ve outgrown our previous dream home, or because we want to be in a better neighbourhood that’s closer to work or to schools. Sometimes it’s because our circumstances have changed, and we’re taking care of elderly parents or relatives. Sometimes, it’s just because we want a property that reflects the financial status our hard work has won.
