Category Property news

After the very successful opening of their Kleinmond office, Greeff Christie's International Real Estate is thrilled to announce the official opening of four new offices in the greater Whale Coast region as part of its expansion plans on 1 August 2019. 
Father and son duo, Reon and Jaco Van der Merwe joined Greeff in 2017 and together sought to take this successful niche brand to even greater heights.

The Van der Merwe team have been in the industry for several years with Reon having been in the industry since 1984 and his son Jaco who joined the industry and partnered with his dad in 2006.

Since then, the two have had their roots firmly planted in the region, having started out in Hermanus. 

The opening of the four new offices in Onrusrivier, Sandbaai, Hermanus, and Voëlklip has sent a wave of excitement through the Winelands team, who ensure every day is used to innovate, create and enhance the best property experience for each client they encounter, and this has led to extraordinary success. 
Mike Greeff, CEO of Greeff Christie's International Real Estate, says he is thrilled at the opening of the offices and looks forward to the continued growth and the period of expansion the company is currently in. "Our start as a small, niche brand has offered us many opportunities and has taken us far and wide.

"We are looking forward to becoming a household name in these areas and look to offer the premium service clients in and around the Cape have become so accustomed to. The selling and buying process is one that cannot be taken lightly and one that is exceptionally important to the people involved in the process."

The opening of these offices signals a new beginning and allows Greeff Christie's International Real Estate to offer it's world-class services to the area.

Recognised as one of the world's foremost luxury brands, Christie's has been a driving force of the luxury industry for over 300 years and has a global presence as a quintessential example of taste and elegance. 

Principal of Greeff Winelands and Whale Coast Jaco Van Der Merwe says, "We are very excited to bring the Greeff Christie's International Real Estate brand to our hometown. We strongly believe that the luxury property market in Hermanus will benefit from our association with Christie's International Real Estate. We are going to offer the homeowner some innovating marketing strategies and at the same time offer them a truly professional service.
"Currently, the property market in the Whale Coast is a buyers paradise, with a lot of stock on the market. Due to this, we are already seeing steady price corrections in selling prices, but sellers will have to be even more realistic in the coming days. We are however optimistic that the next up-swing in the market is around the corner."
With a population of well over 20 000 people, the Whale Coast offers something for everyone. Its attractive lifestyle, beachy environment, and well-priced offerings have been a huge drawcard for first-time local buyers, those seeking a retreat from the busyness of city life, or an older pair interested in retiring in a seaside town. In the summer, beaches in the area offer the perfect breakaway and vacation destination. 
The Van Der Merwe team are exhilarated to be back in the area after having successfully opened the Greeff office in Kleinmond and working on exciting housing developments in the area in 2018.

The Greeff team are proud to open these offices on the back of a highly successful year and two significant award wins. During 2018, Greeff was recognised as award winners for real estate marketing by the International Property Awards for exceptional marketing efforts and innovation.

The second major highlight came in April of 2019 when the company was recognised by Christie's International Real Estate as their Affiliate of the Year for 2018. 

It is this very excellence that has allowed the brand to continue its expansion across the Western Cape.
