Chas Everitt

Crisp mornings and chilly evenings mean that it’s autumn – which is traditionally a season of thanksgiving for a good harvest. And we at Chas Everitt International certainly have reason to celebrate, as our recent affiliation to the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World network (LeadingRE) and its luxury programme, Luxury Portfolio International, is already bearing fruit.

We have had an incredible response from the owners of luxury properties in some of SA’s most sought-after locations as they realise the potential in us now being able to market their homes via award-winning online channels and hugely influential publications such as the Wall Street Journal.

The LeadingRE network also facilitates direct business connections with other top real estate companies globally – and as a member of the Luxury Portfolio programme, our company is now also part of an elite group of brokerages that annually sell more than 25 000 luxury homes around the world for a total of more than $44bn.

Such properties are marketed to more than three million high net worth individuals (HNWIs) internationally on and I’m proud to say that our listings on this website are increasing daily.

What is more the timing for this exposure is excellent, due to the growing demand among African millionaires for in luxury homes in SA (as per the article below), and the growing interest among South African HNWIs in luxury properties in other locations.

These locations include the lovely Indian Ocean island of Mauritius and I’m thrilled to say that through LeadingRE, we have now forged a relationship with top Mauritian property brokerage Park Lane (, so that our clients who wish to purchase property on the island will now have access to local expertise.

As another member of the Luxury Portfolio programme, Park Lane of course markets the very best Mauritian properties, including the upmarket apartments and villas in the IRS and RES developments that are open to SA and other foreign property buyers. And we will be featuring some of these exceptional developments in this and the next few issues of the Property Signpost, so watch this space…

Warm property regards,

Berry Everitt
