LEAPFROG GORDON’S BAY
Why did you decide to pursue a career in property?
After I relocated to the Western Cape in 2008, one of my best decisions was to get involved in the property market and I was appointed as a Leapfrog agent in Gordon’s Bay in September 2012. I have a passion for and interest in people, and notice and take advantage of all good opportunities, especially in properties, and like to build up good relationships based on trust.
What do you find to be the most enjoyable and the most challenging aspects of the job?
The most enjoyable aspects are connecting with people from all over the country, and helping them to find the ‘right property in the right place and at the right price’. It is challenging to compete with so many other estate agencies in the same area, and to get the right stock at market related prices.
What characteristics, in your opinion, make for a great estate agent/broker and why?
The main characteristics are: Integrity and honesty – without these it is not possible to build relationships based on trust, and it is important not just to build, but also to maintain the trust in the relationship. The saying that trust is earned is so true. Furthermore, passion and hard work are essential for success. Last, but not at all the least, it is crucial to ‘walk the extra mile with a smile’.
What are some of your career goals?
To be the best estate agent that I can be by applying knowledge and experience and by working hard. I want to reach the highest levels in the property business, and I know it will be possible with the Lord’s grace, favour and some hard work by me. I am blessed to work with the most supportive team at Leapfrog Gordon’s Bay.
