OPEN LETTER – CHANGING THE PROPERTY MARKET

 

EMBARGOED 2018 - 05 - 15 / 17:00

 

A call to change!

 

An open letter to all Estate Agents, Realty Entrepreneurs and Mortgage originators

 

"In a world where things are constantly changing, we know that things cannot remain the same. The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking." 

 - Albert Einstein

 

In a global perspective, we witness "perpetual" change, set in motion to create a better world for humanity. Change is in the DNA that forms the human race, connecting all with the drive to make a difference.

 

We at Hamptons call it "shifting possibilities, creating change." 

 

Success is great!, but has to be trumped by a committed strategy to impact the industry which we serve, making a contribution that's tangible, to the people of South Africa.

 

The typical South African Realty Market - has to change, its become stereotyped and expensive. Consumers will agree, we dare you to ask them.

 

When we read Xoliswa Tini, a young women from East London battling to break into a market dominated by men – mainly white men we began to question what we are part of and if it was a system we wanted to remain part of. We realise the barriers to entry, at Hamptons we breaking them, ludicrous franchise fees, reluctance to change the model, commit to transforming an archaic system to help people like Xoliswa. 

 

Realty in South Africa has become restrictive, pompous and ludicrously expensive, Real Deals aren't so "real", fixed fees are loaded with more options to pay for than a luxury sports car!  

 

At Hamptons, we model it to our client's needs - R28,000.00 for the full service, with fully compliant service, real agents, real advertising and even real coffee.

 

We are breaking barriers to entry for people like Xoliswa a hero and trailblazer; 

 

NO FRANCHISE START-UP COSTS, FREE TRAINING and TOTAL support.”

 

Hamptons is committed to making the difference, No barriers to entry, and indeed fixed fee and professional, efficient service.

 

And so, we call on the estate agencies to change. Change what you charge, abandon the commission, evolve to give opportunities to all.

 

 

We are committed - Are you?

 

Change and become real!
