Jaco Rademeyer Estates

Since his humble beginnings in the property industry in the mid-2000s, Jaco Rademeyer has built his business, Jaco Rademeyer Estates (JRE), into a formidable enterprise committed to providing both property buyers and sellers with top-notch professional service.

Considered too much of a rookie by established agencies when he first started out, Jaco went about starting up JRE through a mix of impeccable client service and innovative marketing strategies.

Having excelled at Stellenbosch University while obtaining his LLB law degree, Jaco has been able to use his studies to steer clients away from the usual legal pitfalls when buying and selling property.

During his studies Jaco was picked for an exchange program which saw him study for six months at the KU (University of Leuven) in Belgium.

The awards bestowed on him are testament to his dedication to you, the client. He also uses his extensive realty experience and innovative marketing techniques to aid in the buying and selling of properties.

The JRE team is dedicated to finding solutions and producing results. All the information conveyed to JRE clients can be easily understood and any queries or uncertainties can be cleared with just a phone call.

JRE’s key to success is the knowledge of real estate economies and the experience of calculated application to each property and situation. The team provides a superior service which is reliable, honourable and skilful, assuring a satisfying realty experience, and always “ready to serve”, as a recent advertising campaign stated.

One of the major awards which Jaco has claimed over the years was the coveted Property Professional of the Year award in 2010, where he outperformed 15 other finalists which were identified as the top achievers among 43,000 estate agents throughout South Africa.

Already a finalist in 2007 and 2009, winning the award in 2010 placed Jaco at the pinnacle of a highly competitive and extremely demanding industry. At the time he had been practicing for five years and was 28-years-old.

The rigorous judging process and criteria considering all aspects, including sales figures and turnover, ethics and client satisfaction, professionalism, community involvement, marketing and innovation, as well as commitment to education and leadership.

In 2012 Jaco won the Eastern Cape Property Icon Award and also won the business and law category of the Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans competition. He was also named the Nelson Mandela Bay Business Chamber’s Top 40 Under 40 business people in the region.

His innovative approach to all aspects of business and his unwavering commitment to customer service has made him a frontrunner in the industry.

Jaco also believes in investing in the community and is constantly involved in charity drives for the places of safety like the Yokhuselo Haven for women and children, and also has spearheaded several fundraisers for various animal welfare groups.

He has also started up the JRE Property Academy – a drive aimed at high school pupils to educate them about the property market, even if they use it as a stepping stone to another profession.

Jaco also uses his time and, often, the money won from his various awards to invest in the local property industry through training initiatives and workshops, giving local realtors essential opportunities he was never afforded by the established real estate fraternity.

He is also a regular to Property24.com and writes various expert column for local and national publications.
