Q & A with Anel van der Schyff

What do you love about your job?

I love working with people and that makes my job exciting. To meet new people every day: different cultures, different personalities, it’s great to be able to work with them every day. And, you know, sometimes you actually meet friends that way as well.

Why did you choose Seeff?

Seeff was established more than 50 years ago. So they know the ins and outs of the consumer, they know what they want, how they want to be dealt with. And I think also the consumer can see that the brand has been working for all these years.

What makes your area special?

Life in Pretoria is very vibrant – there are lots of things to do. Particularly in Equestria and Vaalpark. You've got the Grove Mall on Equestria's doorstep that offers lots for the consumer. It's got an ice rink, it's got the iMax theater, it's got a bowling alley, and there are plenty of great shops. There are lots of developments going on in Pretoria East and it also makes it very nice for a buyer that's wanting to buy a new property. You can choose your own layout, your own decor inside the house.

People in Vaalpark stick to their houses, they don't sell easily. It's an area where you don't buy property and sell it in three years, you live there for a long time.

What’s the most important thing to remember in this industry? A good estate agent needs to be dedicated to what they do. If you list a property you need to sell it quickly, that's what you need to do. I'm dedicated, I'm a hard worker, I go the extra mile and I think that makes it nice for sellers and buyers to work with me.
