Awards and Recognition
I have been asked about the Awards and Recognition structure so here is some basics.
To make the system as fair as possible Chas Everitt applies a weighted points system whereby the top agent gets points in four categories;
1) Sales Volume / Turnover (eg 150 million Rands worth of property)
2) Number of Units (eg 50 properties)
3) Company commission earned (Company share)
4) Sole Mandates Sold (must be in effect at the time of sale)
The above is the basis for the Quarterly Awards and the Annual Awards. There are two functions a year. The function in July recognises the first two quarters while the function in January (or February) recognises the last two quarters, as well as the entire year.
– Devler Estates is proud to have had qualifying agents for the Funvention every year and to have consistently achieved numerous top level awards, including top metro office awards more than any other office.
While there can only be one top individual agent the company also recognises teams which can consist of two or more agents. If an agent was in a partnership for half a year then half the points are earned by that agent and the full points for the remainder of the year that the agent was solo.
The Funvention has an annual target (ask your Sales Manager), and the Franchisee (not Chas Everitt) covers the cost of any qualifying agent to attend the Funvention but please note this is neither a transferable award nor can it be taken in another form such as cash or other travel. Funventions are held internationally at luxury resorts and have been held in Bali, Mauritius, Buenos Aires, onboard Luxury Cruise ships in the Mediterranean etc. The 2018 Funvention will be in Cancun, Mexico for the first time.

I am really excited about our new 2017 incentives that are aimed at recruiting the best agents and retaining the best agents and I have no doubt in my mind that we are offering by far the best package of overall benefits that any company in Cape Town South offers.
It is so important that an incentive structure is just that – it should really serve to excite and motivate better performance and that is what it should reward.
We are not going to spell it out here on our website because we really want the opportunity to talk to agents about how it will work for them, but the core of the structure is to focus on skills development and acting on those skills to increase the agent's productivity and satisfaction and thereby their personal growth.
We really feel that a Devler agent representing Chas Everitt and Leading Real Estate Companies of the World should not only be able to offer the very best marketing strategies but be rewarded in the best way possible when they produce excellent results.

Sellers could be losing 30% or more of the value of their property when they sell, by simply not being aware of the development potential of their property due to their zoning.
Cape Town estate agent Andre de Villiers said he was shocked to hear of a sale recently, where elderly sellers had accepted a "rather modest offer" directly from a private buyer, a property developer, where it can only be concluded that the seller was probably unaware of the property's valuable GR4 zoning.
"Sellers should remember that an estate agent who is a true specialist in an area, can provide the property owner with a lot more than just a current market valuation that is based on recent sales," said de Villiers.
"The agent can provide you with comprehensive information that will impact on a property's value including the potential for further development. My agents are required to keep totally up to date with both market and municipal trends as well as local regulations for the area. We can also provide property owners with a free report on their zoning, and what this zoning means. Even if you are a private seller or have a private buyer interested in your property, it is still highly recommended that you protect your interests by asking an agent to give you a well-motivated valuation," said de Villiers.
Nobody doubts that that an extra room or a garage adds a tangible value to a property, but the fact that the owner could actually build a block of flats on their property could be far more important to the inherent value of the existing property. This is often information that a property owner simply does not know.
