CEO of Knight Frank South Africa based in Cape Town with 17 years experience in the luxury property market.
I started my career in London for Foxtons which provided an excellent training ground in the world of estate agency before moving to Chelsea, Kensington and Mayfair where I set up the office for Harrods Estates on Park Lane selling prime property from Mayfair up to Hampstead and across to Canary Wharf. I was then fortunate to work for Phil Spencer (Location Location Location) at Garrington Home Finders working exclusively for the buyer, finding and negotiating on prime property in Central London working for an array of clients from CEO's to celebrities. Working for the buyer gave me my experience, knowledge and understanding for customer service and communication, seeing the transaction from the other side.
In 2008 I moved to Guernsey to work for Livingroom Estate Agents where I set up the Open Market department and in 2011 became Director and then Managing Director growing the company to 14 members of staff and winning awards including Best Business in Guernsey plus awards for Innovation and Marketing.
Knight Frank has always been a brand that I have followed and taken an interest in and I am delighted to be working with Anne Porter, Susan Turner, Nick Gaertner and the team at Knight Frank with three offices covering Hout Bay, Atlantic Seaboard and Southern Suburbs.
Furthermore, in 2018 we launched our Development Department specialising in the sale of off plan units as well as acquiring land for clients to develop.
