How did you first get involved in the property industry?
After selling a few properties myself, I decided to join this exciting, amazing industry. A friend encouraged me to take the plunge, even though one needed a solid financial base to start off with, as estate agents sure do wait a long time to receive their pay cheques!!
How long have you been in the property industry?
I began my journey in the property industry in 2003. Coming up for my 15th year!!
What is the best property transaction you have ever done?
There are too many to mention, as the thrill I get when I find the right home for a person, investor or family makes me totally happy, whether it be an expensive or inexpensive property.
Why are you associated with DTS Attorneys?
I have supported DTS from inception for their commitment to successfully completing transactions for their clients, their utter professionalism and always helping and encouraging us agents.
How many children do you have?
I have one daughter, Megan, who completes her matric this year.
What’s the one thing about you few people know?
Few people know that I have completed 3 Comrades, 12 Ultra Marathons, 15 Marathons and 36 half Marathons in my life, now I am happy when I finish a 10km race!!
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I survived a disappointing business partnership, at the same time as the property market took a down turn and together with the fact of being a single mom, losing everything I owned and starting from scratch again, I survived. I never gave up and that is what I am proud of!!
