“I know I want to be worth more than just being an accounting student who went to the best University in the country. I have always wanted to challenge myself and explore different industries that one can tap into; surely life is not just about numbers. Through research and listening to mentors, I have grown to love the property industry”, says Nelly.
Nelly has been in the Employee Benefits industry for the last 5 years, and has gained intense knowledge and learned the prominence of what it means to be an employee, what it means to wake up on a daily basis to earn an income that is just enough to cover expenses; this was not enough for her. The corporate field has not only groomed her skills and capabilities but it has also forced her to fly and look beyond spheres of just being a working individual and relying on one income.
She excels when it comes to providing unrivaled customer service and devotion to details, skills that continually impress her satisfied real estate clients. Her unmatched devotion and unparalleled customer service has resulted in a endlessly expanding network of loyal clients and referrals. Passionate to her craft, Neli continuously seeks to stay ahead of the game when it comes to real estate market education and trends.
“I remember when I said to my varsity best friend “I want to be in the property industry because I know it will open doors for my wealth but I just don’t know how to knock into this industry. I guess the will and enthusiasm was there, but definitely a lot of hard work that comes with it so I knew I had to do something about getting into this industry”, Nelly says.
“I was then invited to co-start a ‘property company’ with fellow friends, and I took up the opportunity. Briefly my experience thus far since our company started, it has been an investment strategy which needs dedication and sacrifices. With every challenge it brought, I worked hard and was committed to the project, says Nelly”
Co-owning a property company has motivated Neli to look beyond just owning property but also wanting to sell properties and make use of property to gain profits from it. She realised that the industry has so much to offer, however:
“There has to be a will to want to gain that knowledge. Becoming a real estate agent is a tool that will not be taken away from me, which I will definitely use to enrich our society. A society that is aware that the property industry exists, but is not educated and motivated enough to invest in this industry”, says Neli.
“Joining DR properties family has been more than a just dream; it is definitely my destiny”, conclude Nelly.
Nelly holds a B.com degree in Financial Accounting from the University of Cape Town and a Wealth Management NQF Level 4 certificate through INSETA.
