|JOHANNESBURG (July 24) - Chas Everitt International has once again emerged from the annual Nedbank Property Professional awards as the real estate group with the highest number of award-winners in its ranks.|
First among these was Barney Fleiser, MD of the group’s KwaZulu-Natal operation, who received a Young Lion award in recognition of his potential as an industry leader of the future.
In addition, there were three Chas Everitt International agents among the 16 top agents from around the country who were in the running for the Property Professional of the Year award.
They were Bongani Sibisi from the Berea franchise in Durban, Murray Tocker from the Constantia franchise in Cape Town and Christiaan Steytler, also from Constantia, who was making his third showing as a finalist.
Rali Mampeule, owner of the Chas Everitt International franchise in Midrand, was the winner of the Property Professional of the Year award last year and in 2004, group founder and chairman Charles Everitt received a Property Professional Lifetime Achievement award to honour his many years of service and dedication to raising professional standards in the SA real estate industry.
And since the inception of the Property Professional awards eight years ago, the group has notched up a total of six Young Lion awards made to the “stars of tomorrow” as well as three Mover & Shaker accolades awarded to industry leaders for their contribution to the growth and well-being of real estate.
This gives the group a substantial honour roll that also includes group MD Berry Everitt, franchising CEO Barry Davies, Western Cape director Andre de Villiers, KZN director Roger Dixon and Paarl franchisee Henriette Basson.
