About Durr Estates
Durr Estates is one of the oldest brands in the Real Estate industry, in the Western Cape. From humble beginnings in September 1969 it very soon emerged as one of the leading Estate Agencies in the Cape Peninsula.
The company was founded by John Durr and Arlene McKenzie in Constantia under the name of Storm Durr Estates. Soon after the Durr brothers, with John, Kent, Gavin and Storm all playing an active part, joined with Arlene Mckenzie, the driving force and administrative director of the business.
As in any industry innovators are soon followed, and so it was that a rapidly expanding Durr Estates was followed by other brands, who have all since become well known in the real estate industry of the Cape Peninsula.
In 1995 the shareholders initiated a series of events that saw the business changing from a family owned business, where all branches were owned and managed by shareholders of the company, to what it is today - a franchised operation consisting of independently owned Durr Estates offices spread over the Western, Southern and Eastern Cape.
