I am originally from the Netherlands and have lived and worked in Pretoria for over 30 years. Attended schooling in Amsterdam, completed Hotel Management course, obtained a certificate in Marketing and Public Relations and is a Certified and Registered Principal Estate Agent.
Married to Braam and have three sons and one daughter.
I joined Harcourts Capital in 1994 and have been a Principal since 1996, combining managing and selling in Menlo Park and surrounds during the lean years. However, due to the size of the agency which stands at present at around 25 real estate agents and 3 administrative persons, I decided to manage full time and appoint a most competent agent for my previous area, Menlo Park.
Expertise and Qualifications
I am NQF5 competent and have completed the CRS course with many post graduate courses under my belt. I also likes to stay abreast by attending training and seminars at regular intervals. I am a long standing member of the Institute of Estate Agents.
In my personal capacity, I have made my mark on numerous occasions in the Top 20 of the Institute of Estate Agents and am the proud recipient of the merit award. I have also been recognised for Service Excellence and am the recipient of the IEASA's merit award and in 2014 I received the Harcourts' Chairman's Award. I have also achieved sales well over R70 million and I successfully manage an agency with over 25 estates agents. I have enjoyed great success with exclusive sole mandates of which the majority of listings were sold with 10% of the original asking price and well withing the proposed marketing period.
