What are your top three secrets to success?
I believe in being honest, professional and having perseverance.
What is the one thing you wish someone had taught you or told you when you first started out in property and why?
Someone once told me that “when there is one house for sale on a road, there will be another one or two in the same road!” If I had known that sooner, I would have done canvassing in order to get more houses to sell!
What is the most vital business tool that estate agents should have at their disposal in today’s market and why?
Access to CMA and the Internet; it makes our life so much easier!
Do you remember the first property you sold? Please tell us about it.
The first property I ever sold was a free-standing house in Ritchie Street at the University Estate in Cape Town. I presented the offer with my principal, Mr Camara. When we left the house, he said that I explained it too well.
What advice would you give to new kids on the block about making a success in their career in property?
You need to attend training, be committed, punctual and do follow ups. Never let people down.
