My Story

Property is my passion, for a long as I can remember I have been fascinated with Real Estate. I thrive on helping people with property decisions, clients, friends and family when it came to invest, buy or sell Real Estate I was always their first port of call.

It is now over a decade ago that I started selling developments and residential properties in South Africa and I still have the same burning drive and ambition to make the property business as much as a passion for others as it is for me.

After moving to London, I immersed myself in one of the premier property markets in the world, gained further experience working in as many parts of the local industry as possible; I worked directly for developers, agents, consultants and most recently one of the best research teams in the industry. I also spent time working in various parts of the market, both geographically and financially, selling and consulting on projects across the spectrum.

I work for Knight Frank LLP in London as an Associate in their Residential Development division. Our team there ensures the successful delivery of numerous residential developments spanning a vast area across London and a variety of price points.
