Fine & Country competition a success

21 Feb 2014

Excitement was tangible at the Fine & Country South Africa Head Office in Sandton on Friday, 10 January. A large number of exclusive mandates had been given to Fine & Country by sellers, who showed their continued support and faith in the brand.

The lucky winners, Mr and Mrs Hymie Machet, residents of Northcliff Extension 25 in Johannesburg, who signed a four month sole mandate with Pam Scheepers, area specialist from the Fine & Country Randburg office, were full of praise, not only because they had won the Volkswagen Vivo, but also because of the service and marketing support they had received from Fine & Country.

Mrs Machet, who was informed of the competition when she signed the mandate, says she would recommend sole mandates and would do it again.

They have not decided what they will do with the prize but they may keep it as a spare car.

“I would like to say that Pam Scheepers has been a wonderful agent and we would recommend her to anybody wanting to buy or sell in the area,” she says.

According to Edgar Blomeyer, Principal and Managing Director of the Randburg office that produced the winning ticket, his office had received an overwhelming response to the competition. He thanked all the clients that had entered the competition.

Linda Erasmus, CEO of Fine & Country International Realty sub-Saharan Africa, says this competition demonstrates that marketing can be a powerful component of their business and can empower them to participate in opportunities which add value to their own business - as well as providing great value to their clients.

“We are proud of the competition and the role this initiative has played in focusing our marketing efforts.

“I would like to thank and congratulate all the clients who participated this year, and encourage you to continue investing in property. Property as an investment is a well debated topic. My view is based on my personal experience where I followed two basic principles,” says Erasmus.

She says property is a long-term investment unless you find yourself in a ‘one in a hundred years’ boom. Keep property, unless you have a better replacement property that will grow quicker than the one you have.

“We want to thank the organisers, the auditors and the home team for the professional and ethical manner in which they operated. My sincere thanks to Jeremy Lumley and Lindsay Saker East Rand for assisting with the car. We are privileged to be part of this collaborative effort,” says Erasmus.
