I started Prima Estates from my home and had no experience of how to be an estate agent, but with the knowledge I had from property, I believed in myself and sold properties to very well know sport people, directors and high profile clients. While other estate agencies closed their doors I stayed focus and sold properties more that R8 000 000. I build the CC into a very well known business in the area Plattekloof and surrounds. In 2012 Pam Golding Properties approached me to take on their brand and i did make an success with an uncomplicated brand changed with my clients and staff supporting me. I believe in team work but also to work together with the team. It's your motivation that keeps them positive to bring in the sales so you can pay all the business expenses BUT most of all the rich their targets so they have the positivism to come into the office everyday to work for an income based only on commission.

General Manager 100% Home Loans

I started 100% Home Loans from my home and build it into a company with 8 branches in South Africa with 74 staff working for the company. The whole administrative, marketing and functional structure were developed by me. I trained the staff, keep them motivated and we worked together as a team. I registered myself at the Financial Service Board of South Africa and teach my agents to sell life cover. In this company I took on the responsibility for every transaction with our clients.Due to the National Credit Act I sold the business in 2007 just in time before it came into full action, because I knew it will take time for the banks to adapt to the new Act.
