Meet Andrew and Leon Smith, the driving force in marketing some of KZN’s most dynamic developments, from the Midlands to the coast
The Smith brothers are an interesting duo indeed. Standing over 6-foot 5-inches a-piece they appear rather intimidating when you first meet them, but nothing is further from the truth. “Standing out from the crowd is nothing new to us,” says Leon with a grin – and stand out they certainly do.
In a few short years, Smiths Property Group has racked up an impressive sales track record in the Upper Highway. “Property is part of our DNA,” says Andrew, who attributes their success to remaining true to their core values of integrity and humility, combined with “jolly hard work”. “We select our projects carefully and undertake extensive market research before committing to taking on the marketing effort.”
An example of their unique abilities was when they took on the challenge of turning Cotswold Downs Estate into the booming success that it now is. “Our team worked incredibly hard on this project and we are very proud to have been part of the resurgence of this magnificent estate,” Andrew continues.
Another recent achievement was the dizzying success of Emberton Estate, which Smiths launched in August 2015. “Careful analysis of the community’s needs resulted in the creation of a product that found overwhelming support on launch. The sales tempo has been frenetic, with more than R200-million worth of property being sold in a matter of months,” says Andrew. “Civils work has begun in earnest and delivery of the clubhouse along with all the estate facilities and phase one homes is on track for early 2017.”
Call in at the sales office (90 Ashley Drive, Gillitts) to view the scaled model and the upmarket finishes that buyers can expect.
Residential properties within gated estates are a sought after investment class, particularly in the Upper Highway area, given the never-ending demand for rentals. Capital growth of properties within local estates continues to exceed inflation, highlighting why investing in this asset class is considered to be one of the safest options to those looking for a minimal risk investment.
Smiths Property Group also specialises in retirement estates and is currently marketing the popular St John’s Village Estate on the Karkloof Road in Howick.
“We are excited to announce that we will be launching an exclusive retirement village in Mount Edgecombe on June 12, 2016,” says Leon. “The demand for retirement accommodation in this area is at an all-time high. The pre-launch event is by invite only, so be sure to call us on
