She also lectures local estate agents weekly on all aspects of property law and hosts a bi-monthly property forum for local banks, bond originators, estate agents and property developers.
Motivated by success which she defines as satisfying clients’ needs, she is also driven by the pleasure of giving back to the community with the Greyvensteins Givers Gain Campaign, which was her brainchild.
