I have managed to successfully source significant rental stock for large organisations over extended periods and have managed to maintain an excellent repeat business ratio through building strong client relationships. In the residential sales side I have managed to secure and service exclusive marketing rights from top East London Developers and have consistently received regional awards from the Franchisors recognising the branch performance in both rentals and sales. I build relationships with my clients by providing professional, ethical and concise advice and feedback. I use technology to the advantage of my clients offering expert property appraisals, effective, active and immediate marketing of properties – whether for rental or for sale. My competitive sales team of property professionals will ensure transparency through the entire transaction and will guarantee you extraordinary service. As a proud father of 4 lively children, who all excel at school and sport, I serve on the school governing body where I gladly contribute my time and expertise.

    Des Wild

    Property Practitioner

    A born and bred East Londoner and Old Selbornian, Des Wild has been in the Real Estate Industry, selling property and assisting buyers to find their dream properties for the past 14 years. Before that he worked on the Management team for the Foschini group as their regional manager, managing the credit departments between East London and Durban. He has been part of our team since 2011 and sees a really bright future in the East London Market going forward. Des prides himself on the high value he places on doing the right thing in business and honouring the Lord in every single transaction. He is confident, trustworthy and enjoys working with people. Des has enjoyed being in the limelight when he ranked in the Top 20 agents in South Africa while he was working at ERA Sun a couple of years ago. The best part of his daily grind is building lasting, trusting relationships with his sellers by giving them straightforward, open and realistic feedback on their properties. The seller’s needs as well as the latest market conditions are carefully considered in each transaction and the advice given is based on many years of experience in this market. The biggest compliment that you could give Des is to entrust the marketing of your property to him. Working with buyers is rewarding and Des gets great pleasure from assisting and educating first time buyers and advising speculators and investors alike – mindfully assessing their needs and drawing on his knowledge to help them make wise decisions for their property-owning futures. Buyers who work with Des learn to trust his approach and buyers have become his sellers in the years that followed.

    Nicola Van Eeden

    Property Practitioner

    I grew up in East London and moved to Johannesburg after completing my studies in interior decorating in 1995, and worked as a decorator for 3 years after which I opened my own painting techniques business. After getting married in 2000, my husband and I started a painting and small renovations business and within a couple of years started cutting polystyrene cornices for sale and installation in Northern Gauteng. I moved back to my hometown here in East London in 2015 and decided to make property my new venture. I love all creative things and especially beading and sewing, enjoy working with oil paint and have a special interest in herbs and making natural beauty products. My 12 years in the painting and renovations industry has given me an eye for detail in the residential area. Having worked with owners, service providers and retail, has given me the skills needed to manage the marketing and successful sale of your property.

    Aphiwe Nana

    Rental Consultant

    I was born and raised in Mthatha in the Eastern Cape and moved down to East London in 2004, where my husband and I have chosen to raise our family and I am proud to have two children that we have the privilege of bringing up. I love working with people and value honesty and integrity. I have a strong work ethic and am a firm believer that hard work pays off, I value the relationships that I build with clients and friends and am very serious about being successful at everything I set my mind to. I have been working for 10 years and for the last 4 I worked for an amazing organization building homes for women living in shacks. It has been the most gratifying experience of giving hope and dignity to women living under very difficult circumstances, who on their own wouldn’t have been able to provide a decent home for their families, so I am not completely new in the property world! I have worked with estate agents, government departments, conveyancing attorneys and other property professionals and support services in sourcing land, buying dilapidated properties (that we renovated). I managed the subdivision process, removal of restrictions on title deeds and other complicated real estate transfers. I have learned that with patience, persistence and tenacity we can overcome most barriers in life. I have always had an interest in the property industry and my previous job has reinforced that passion. As a Rental Consultant at Harcourts Advantage, my goal is to build trust & relationships with the people I serve. I will do exactly what I said I will, when I said I would and if I am unable to deliver this, it will be communicated. My promise to you is guaranteed feedback and exceptional service; this together with my B Tech in Marketing will get you the results, whether you are the landlord or the tenant.

    Rental Consultant

    My family keep me energised and motivated, spending time with them and making memories is what I treasure most. I have worked in the rental industry since 2008 and moved to East London in 2011. Whether you need help to find a tenant or you need a property to rent, I will be able to assist you. I have a strong work ethic and believe that honesty is the best policy, even if it is not what my clients want to hear at the time, landlords will receive constructive feedback and advice, excellent marketing and screening processes, while the tenants will have every aspect of the leasing procedure explained to them. I am proud to be part of a team that put people first. My love for property and what I do makes everything worth while. My strengths lie in co-ordinating and organising. I am confident that when I place tenants in properties they have met all the qualifying criteria and will be the best applicants for the property – not just the first. My years of experience and knowledge of this industry ensure that I am able to give an above average level of service and using the advanced technology that we have at Harcourts, I am able to interpret market movements and demands confidently. I share the dream of my team to become the # 1 agency in the region and am looking forward to our future growth and development.
