PROPERTY NEWS - Terracon Properties officially started in January 2019 with only two estate agents, the principal Charl Snyman, and co-founder Desireé Wallace. Charl brought a wealth of property experience to the business, starting his career in the USA prior to returning to South Africa in 2013.
Desireé brings business knowledge from her previous career as a management consultant in Gauteng.
From the start Charl and Desireé had a common vision for Terracon Properties to be a virtual agency. Real Estate agencies in George have traditionally operated from office space, so this was certainly new thinking for the local property industry.Terracon Properties has been successful in realising our virtual office dream and is using technology to its full advantage to run our business.
Snyman says that nobody could have imagined how forward-thinking this strategy would be until the Covid-19 virus hit. Many Real Estate agencies are now seeing the benefits of a virtual agency and going the same route.
Although technology is a big part of what Terracon Properties is all about, Snyman says that you cannot be successful without agents on the ground. However, these agents need to be equipped to use technology to give clients a more enhanced service. Being virtual has given us the perfect opportunity to choose our agents selectively, based on their abilities to work independently, their professional ethical approach, and knowledge of the industry.
The agency is now nine people strong and growing. Terracon was fortunate to be able to recruit experienced agents in Deenie Martin, Karin de Klerk and Jaco de Lange, all previously at large national agencies. Neil van Tonder, André de Goede and Miranda Nel are newer recruits, with Tandy Giles coordinating our marketing and social media platforms.
Snyman adds that there is some pretty incredible technology out there and we bring as much of it to the table as possible. Our agents are able to offer state-of-the-art Matterport 3D virtual tours, benefiting the seller by giving more exposure of their homes and minimising unnecessary viewings. A professional photographer takes high quality pictures for homes that meet our criteria, and our agents have access to a drone, 3D camera and other tools to do video tours of sellers' homes.
We have a growing social media presence, providing additional marketing for our clients' homes.
Terracon also provides a value-added service for buyers wanting to build their own home through our alliance with sister company Terracon Project Development, as well as reputable builders we support. Terracon Properties was fortunate to obtain a sole mandate on the developer stands in the picturesque Mont Fleur Mountain Estate and together with our professional team of design specialists, draughtsman, builders and project managers, we can build our clients a home which matches their budget and their personal taste.
