5 Things You Didn’t Know About Yolanda Cornelius

31 March 2021

Yolanda Cornelius is growing her footprint and is now the franchisee of the newly established Just Property Dolphin Coast. Yolanda now runs Just Property franchise offices in Ballito, Empangeni and Richards Bay. She is one of our superstars with a string of accolades to her name including Just Property New Franchisee of the Year 2017, Just Property Champions Award winner 2019 and Best of Zululand Reader’s Choice in the Real Estate category.

How does she do it all? We asked Yolanda some questions to  give some insight into what makes her so successful: 

  1. What is your biggest fear?
    From a business perspective, I think my biggest fear would be letting down my clients - losing their loyalty and trust.

  2. What is your proudest accomplishment?
    Professionally speaking, looking back over the past 25 years, I would never imagine ever being the franchisee of three branches in KZN.  Not only has it brought me many proud moments but with it plenty of challenges.  On the personal side, I am a proud mother of two beautiful children; my daughter will be studying in Stellenbosch this year and my son is in Grade 11.

  3. What motivates you to work hard? 
    My motivation is in every rental, every sales transaction, everything and anything we are able to do to assist our clients. I have a phenomenal team behind me - without them I wouldn’t be able to do what I do.

  4. If money didn’t play a role, what would you do all day?
    I have always had a love for sport, being active is one of my greatest passions.  If I’m not in the office, you’ll find me on my bike.

  5. What was the biggest lesson of 2020 for you?
    Don’t take things for granted.
