There is an old saying, “A change is as good as a holiday” and the Nadas Estate Agency family is now more prepared than ever for the next 15 years.
David and Beate Hancock have been proud residents of Piet Retief for many years and in 2003, Beate started Nadas Estate Agency as a one-man-show. The company has ever since expanded into a family business and September 2018, marks their 15th year in the business.
The word “Nadas” originated from an indigenous Namibian word which means “There it is”. It is also a symbol of the family farm, which is close to the family’s hearts, in Namibia. Nadas has evolved over the past few years from a small office at the Suidoos Centre, to a business premises at Wellspring Church and now a beautiful premises, with the friendliest owners and staff members in Brand Street.
Beate operated the business successfully on her own, but when her son-in-law, Remik, joined her, the rest of her children, Cindy and Vicky, soon followed. The younger generation encouraged their parents that the business needs a new look and they have recently decided to undergo a complete makeover – with impressive results!
This dynamic team now also offers a variety of services to anyone looking to rent or buy a property. They have combined sales, rentals and services under one roof and are looking forward to assist the community of Piet Retief with even more passion than the past 15 years.
Remik is in charge of the rentals while Beate, Vicky and Cindy handle the sales division. The service department consists of a cleaning – and gardening team that is ready and able to go in and clean, maintain and repair anything at the property before the new owner or tenant moves in.
This is just an extra bonus for any potential property buyer or lessee. Beate also mentioned that competition in this type of business is always a good thing as it keeps one focussed on the end goal.
It also helps one to work harder and it is advantageous for the community as people now have various options to choose from and they don’t always have to settle for the first best thing. There it is! Nadas Estate Agency turned over a new leaf, with some exciting offers coming up in the near future and a stylish, friendly and very funky new look.
Their office is warm and inviting with grey coloured walls and shades of orange squares painted in a strategic way. Not only is Mkhondo looking forward to a new season (spring), but Nadas is also heading into a new season with their business – the best of luck to you all and well done on the beautiful rebranding!
