  • Anita Bryant

    Anita Bryant

    Candidate Sales Consultant

    WHY REAL ESTATE? Anita worked in conveyancing for 17 years, and saw the kind of income and lifestyle a real estate agent can have. When her children were a little older and more independent, she took the leap of faith and entered her dream profession. After 29 years, she still has not found anything to replace the excitement, and feeling of achievement, on concluding a successful sale. WHY HARCOURTS CORNERSTONE? Anita has worked at many agencies in East London over the years, including her own successful business. Her children took over her business, where she continued as an agent and when the time came for them to change their career path, the decision was easy – there was only one option! She joined Harcourts Cornerstone, an international franchise with the most modern, innovative technology, in March, 2013. She has been bowled over by the total commitment, passion, and dedication to the company by their principal Lance, and his wife, Robyn. Anita is amazed that there is still so much to learn, and it IS possible to teach “an old dog new tricks” although it may take a little longer, and much more patience!!! She remembers a few years ago, after hearing a dispute, the losing company remarked: “It’s about time that property dinosaur retired.” Anita replied that she didn’t know whether to take that as an insult or a compliment, and she decided that it could only be a compliment! ANITA’S COMMITMENT TO HER PROFESSION & COMMUNITY Anita served as a director of the Border Institute of Estate Agents in East London for many years. She also serves as a Committee member of Multi Listing Services, and was instrumental in starting East London’s own listing agency, Property Listing Association, a non-profit association, of which she is currently Chairman. Anita was asked when she will retire – her answer? “Not in the foreseeable future. I feel like I have started my career all over again. So many new goals. So very exciting, challenging, but rewarding.”

    Rachelle Bartholomew

    Professional Practitioner in Real Estate

    WHY REAL ESTATE? Rachelle says: “Your home is an expression of you, your safe place to relax and recharge. It’s where you can simply be you, surrounded by all the things you love. Buying a home is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life and selling it is an emotional detachment. The joy and fulfilment that I find in Real Estate is in advising and assisting you in making decisions that will lead to your long term benefit and contentment with your home. The East Coast of East London is an area I am particularly passionate about. The coastal dune bush is protected, the beaches are pristine and the sea is warm and inviting throughout most of the year. The perfect place to live or holiday. I have excellent knowledge of the estates, villages and smallholdings along this stretch of coast and previous experience in construction and design environments. All things home! The market is ever changing and can sometimes be intimidating. Let me help you with your Real Estate needs!”

Over the years, she has learned so much about real estate by osmosis, and eventually it was a natural progression for her to join her husband, Lance Gouws, in his business. WHY HARCOURTS? When Harcourts was first presented to the Gouwses, the training aspect was something Robyn found very exciting. She believes that we should all keep learning for our entire lives, so the advanced programs offered by Harcourts answered that need in her. WHY HARCOURTS CORNERSTONE? As part of the family, Robyn was 100% positive and excited when Cornerstone made the transition to Harcourts. She finds it exciting to be part of a fast-growing international brand! ROBYN’S COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT Robyn is committed to the Harcourts Foundation initiatives, and specifically backs Lance Gouws in his contributions to the East London Children’s Home and any other Harcourts project that comes along. ROBYN’S EXPERIENCE YOUR ADVANTAGE Robyn has worked with Lance as a Principal, Office Manager and Trainer. Together with all the experience in the Harcourts Cornerstone team, we’re able to make a difference in your life!
