Local Lowveld RE/MAX Agent in top form

As the world’s largest real estate franchise, RE/MAX has continued to show remarkable results despite challenges seen in the real estate market over the past few years. 

Flouting industry norms, RE/MAX is the leading real estate franchise company with the most productive sales force in the property market around the globe today. In October 2012, USA magazine Franchise Times named RE/MAX the number one real estate franchise in its annual Top 200 ranking, based on worldwide sales. As the saying goes, “nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX”.

Maurice Lodewick, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Lifestyle Estates, which services the Nelspruit and surrounding areas, says that the reason the RE/MAX brand has been able to continually show such impressive results, is due to the fact that the agents that work under the brand are passionate about what they do. “The brand has a worldwide network of around 90 000 agents globally, with approximately 1800 of those agents within the South African region. All of these real estate professionals have contributed to making RE/MAX of Southern Africa one of the top performing regions in the world. One such individual is René Kotzé, who has excelled in the Nelspruit area and is now one of the top agents in the country,” says Lodewick.

He notes that Kotzé has been working as a real estate agent in the Nelspruit area for the past 11 years and is well respected in the Lowveld region. Initially starting her career in the property industry with Kellaprince Properties, she then moved to Chas Everitt. In July last year, Kotzé decided to join the world’s number one brand, RE/MAX. “Rene has proved that hard work truly does pay off.  She works every day of the week and puts in long hours.  Since joining our office she has been dedicated to providing an excellent service to our clients and as a result she has achieved excellent results. René’s ongoing effort to perform at an optimum level has allowed her to succeed regardless of the economic conditions the market has experienced over the last few years. It is interesting to note that 80% of René’s buyers and sellers come from past clientele or referrals from past satisfied clients. Buyers and sellers in Nelspruit can rest assured that they are dealing with one of the best estate agents in South Africa,” says Lodewick.
Some of René Kotzé’s achievements within the RE/MAX of Southern Africa network include:
  • Top 10 Individual Associates – Based on registered commission - March 2013 - #7 Rene Kotze
  • Top 10 Individual Associates – Based on registered commission - Year to date - #10 René Kotzé
  • Top 5 Associates per region based on registered commission year to date 2013 - Northern Region - #2 René Kotzé
  • Top 5 offices per region – Based on registered commission year to date - Northern region - #4 RE/MAX Lifestyle Estates

 Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, says that the key to having a successful real estate brand is working with the best people in the industry. “RE/MAX has a remarkable network of professionals that continually strive to be leaders in their field. The company is built on the success and strength of the individual’s entrepreneurship and innovation, and these are attributes RE/MAX agents have in abundance,” he concludes.
