Hofni Schoeman

Seeff City Bowl

Why did you decide to pursue a career in property?

I have always loved property; everything about it, the design, interior, furniture and gardens. I also love working with people and the fact that there is no ceiling on how much one can earn. The harder you work and more successful you become, the bigger the pay cheque!

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

The most enjoyable and at the same time the most challenging for me is working with people and meeting their demands. It is very important to me that once a client has worked with both Seeff and myself that they will remember us and want to work with us again in the future.

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

You have to listen well. The initial client brief is the most important and you need to ensure that you know exactly what the client is looking for and/or wants. This will avoid delays and irritations. Honesty and integrity are vital; sometimes it is best to walk away.

What are some of your career goals?

To be the best in whatever I do. To make an impact.
