CEO Paul Stevens says, "Just Property's footprint across the country is growing. With the country just coming out of a recession and data from Lightstone’s Residential Property Indices showing how coastal properties are increasing in value at a greater rate than non-coastal properties, we are pleased to announce our new franchise in Plettenberg Bay. In Ranate Boni, we believe we have someone who fits our company’s values; Plett can only benefit from her integrity and work ethic."
New reports from Stats SA on 3rd quarter growth back up Stevens's optimism: “The South African economy grew by 2,2% quarter-on-quarter (seasonally adjusted and annualised) in the third quarter of 2018, bringing to an end the country’s second recession since 1994.”
Ranate has grown her business from Independent Agent to Full Franchise with Just Property. She says, "I'm very excited to be growing under the Just Property brand and I believe that now is the perfect time for it. Plett has so much to offer: a small town, with a great atmosphere, amazing beaches and seafront views, and a wide variety of property owners. I was interested to note that the age group of buyers is getting younger, according to Property24, the 18-35 age group makes up 26% of recent purchases in the area. I can't wait to serve the community of Plettenberg Bay and look forward to bringing the service and integrity that has made Just Property the first-choice agency in other parts of the country, to this part of the world.”
Just Property is not your traditional Real Estate Agency, but a dynamic company born from the motivation to build an industry leader, that offers clients a holistic property solution. "We have always been unique and different in our approach to the market and are driven by our vision to empower South Africans to create wealth through property," says Stevens. "We have evolved into a business offering a complete property solution, one that includes residential, commercial and industrial property for rentals, sales and investment. We are working hard to grow our footprint and our brand presence. It’s exciting to see how committed our franchisees are to this journey and that we are being recognised internationally as best-in-class".
The launch of the Plettenberg Bay franchise will be followed by new Just Property franchises in Adelaide, Henneman, Koringberg, North Riding and Port Alfred in the new year.
