Rise of an agent
Nick Pearson was only 25 when he expanded the Tyson Properties brand from KwaZulu-Natal to Cape Town two years ago.
Pearson followed in his father’s real estate footsteps when he was 22, initially in a part-time job. In 2015, he became a managing partner of Tyson Properties. He is still an agent. Under his guidance, the Atlantic Seaboard team has snapped up a 30% market share in Clifton and recently facilitated the most expensive sectional title sale yet. According to Comparative Market Analysis, the property sold for more than R80m.
Tyson Properties’ two Cape Town offices brought in sales worth half a billion rand in Q1 2017. “My strategy is to instil a culture that thrives on teamwork rather than on individuals doing huge numbers,” says Pearson.
He intends to make large sales in Clifton and Bantry Bay this year. “I am also planning a West Coast office, probably in Blaauwberg,” he says.
