Following my career as a Registered Nurse, in 1997 I joined ERA Drostdy Grahamstown and have been an Estate Agent ever since . I try to attend as many training sessions, workshops, conferences as I can. A highlight being the National Association of Realtors (NAR) conference in America 2005 attended by over 35 000 Realtors from around the world. In 2001, I successfully completed the ERA Top Gun training programme and hold the National Certificate in Real Estate. At the end of August 2004 I started the Grahamstown office of Independent Property Consultants (IPC) – the first franchise nationally. Having invested in several local properties before becoming a property consultant, as a Principal agent, I am fascinated by Real Estate and enjoy my work enormously. My son Richard, being part of the business, gives clients the benefit of a family team looking after their interests intensely and empathetically. Until recently, my husband Brian, a retired Rhodes University academic, assisted me hugely - and lovingly - to manage a busy office.
I first joined IPC Grahamstown in 2005 and worked for the company until 2009. I then went on to pursue a career in the hospitality and retail trade in Stellenbosch. I remained registered as an agent with the Estate Agencies Affairs Board (EAAB) and consulted on property matters in both the Eastern and Western Cape. The world of property always draws me back to real estate and in April 2013 I decided to move back to Grahamstown and have again been enjoying operating as a full-time agent. It was my love for property, the people and the exceptional life style in Eastern Cape which lured me back here. I have completed my NQF5 and been certified by the EAAB to be a Master in Real Estate practice.
