Seeff is now located in 95A Voortrekker Street - one of the historic buildings in the town
Seeff Properties in Malmesbury is under new management with a new principal, Pierre Germishuys, who has taken over the area after the previous principal, Simon Mouton decided that it was time to move on.
Seeff is now located in 95A Voortrekker Street in one of the historic buildings in the town – the old horse stables later used as the holding cells of the neighbouring police station building which dates to 1862. Although the façade of the building has been altered, the old burglar bars and thick steel door at the rear is still there.
Germishuys started with the Seeff Property Group in 2003 and has over the years, expanded his license area to 22 offices and 116 staff located across the Swartland, West Coast, Boland and Winelands. The group has offices in Boschenmeer, Brackenfell, Ceres, Croydon, Darling, de Wijnlanden, Franschhoek, Jakkalsfontein, Kraaifontein, Kuilsrivier, Lambertsbaai, Langebaan, Malmesbury, Paarl, Paternoster, Port Elizabeth, Riebeek Vallei, (Riebeek-Wes en Riebeek-Kasteel), Saldanha, Stellenbosch, St Helenabaai, Tulbagh, Velddrif, Vredenburg, Wellington, Worcester en Yzerfontein.
Being part of such a significant group brings great benefits to the Malmesbury property market, from unique property market insight to networking with other agents and access to Seeff’s significant database of qualified buyers suited to the Malmesbury area.
Germishuys believes Malmesbury is an exciting property market and has specifically recognised the potential of the area.
The latest Lightstone data shows that it has been a fairly steady property market, but naturally also affected by the weaker Cape property market overall. That said, there is plenty of activity and Seeff looks forward to assisting sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants with their property needs.
Malmesbury is located on a tourist route that is growing in popularity. It is the main town for the Swartland and the close proximity to Cape Town and West Coast makes it a popular country town.
The N7 upgrade and other developments hold excellent potential for property in the area. The close proximity to Cape Town also makes it a popular commuter town for people working in the City, but needing more affordable accommodation. Affordable properties are priced from around R550 000-R1m while family houses range upwards of around R1.5m.
Germishuys also says that demand for a country lifestyle in areas such as Malmesbury is a growing trend and the town also forms an important centre for the surrounding farming and coastal areas.
Seeff will be offering a broad range of services including sales and rentals of residential, agricultural and commercial real estate. The office is staffed by Rajeshree Williams (Reception and Administration), Phil Craig (Commercial), Cindy Matheson-Share (Rentals) and Mirriam Mokwena en Nastassja Koch (Sales).
