Why did you decide to pursue a career in property?

Why on earth not? Imagine having the perfect balance between working in a vibrant office and getting out in the field, helping people to find their perfect bachelor pad or family home.

What do you find to be the most enjoyable and the most challenging aspects of the job?

The most enjoyable is watching the bachelor enjoying Cape Town city life in his newly found place, or a family getting settled in their new home. The most challenging? Finding that darn perfect property in the first place!

What characteristics, in your opinion, make for a great estate agent/broker and why?

I have a colleague who is a very successful and respected agent in the RE/MAX City Bowl office. With a full programme, she still finds time to run a part-time soup kitchen and to care about other people. Need I say more?

What are some of your career goals?

To further my education through training, ensuring that I am up to date with all aspects of the real estate environment. To become the area expert for my areas of focus, and to receive recognition from RE/MAX of Southern Africa through its awards programme by becoming one of its top-selling professionals.
