Kathy van Zyl Properties CC was founded in 1998 as a rental company. Kathy van Zyl, the principal and sole owner of the company acted as the sole rental agent for a year or two until the rental portfolio grew too large for her to handle on her own. Two rental agents were employed to help.
It was soon realized that the company was losing potential income and business by not having a sales department. Subsequently, a second company for ‘sales’ was registered, called 12 to 12 Investment CC trading as Kathy van Zyl Properties. Two very active sales agents were employed.
With both these companies operating well the business increased to such an extent that more rental agents were employed to help manage the workload.
The rental portfolio is now one of the largest in the Helderberg basin and on the sales side, we have a good market share of the properties that do get sold in the area.
Most tenants become buyers and a fair number of landlords become sellers at some given stage. Thus, we have a good inhouse turnover of sales out of the rental portfolio. As such we can give good service to our tenants who later become our buyers…..having built up a good rapport with them while renting and knowing what their needs are.
We pride ourselves as being one of the top rentals and sales companies in the area and offer excellent service to all our landlords/tenants/seller and buyers.
