Property Management Services

We are a boutique Property Management and Rental Agency, specialising in property management. Our approach is very simple – we aim to cater exactly to each owner’s individual requirements.

Our Services

Our managed properties are owned by both local and overseas investors. For many, their homes are left vacant whilst overseas and our role is to check the property on a regular basis, see in gardeners, domestic staff and ensure the well-being of the property. During this time, some owners ask us to also organise repairs or renovations.

We oversee and arrange projects ranging from installation of new curtains to large-scale renovations of gardens, kitchens, bathrooms or even the entire house. We also have good connections with a number of service providers and tradesmen with whom we have been working for a number of years.

Rentals

A number of our clients ask us to rent out their properties while they are not resident. Thanks to our industry connections we are able to find holiday, short and long-term rental tenants, enabling our owners to take full advantage of Cape Town’s thriving rental market. We are able to manage the whole letting process from start to finish: finding suitable tenants, taking care of the legal requirements and paperwork, welcoming them into their new home and dealing with any issues should they arise over the course of their tenancy.

Our property portfolio is expanding every month as we are approached by new homeowners. If you own a property in Cape Town we’d love to talk about how we can help you. Please get in touch from the Contact page.
