Her work in­volves em­pow­er­ing women and young stokvel mem­bers to help them nav­i­gate the in­tri­ca­cies of pur­chas­ing prop­erty – whether pri­vate or com­mer­cial.

Whether you are shop­ping around for the home of your dreams or a busi­ness prop­erty, Olu Khon­jwayo uses her Prop­erty Talk with Olu K plat­form to make it a pain­less ex­er­cise to ac­quire what your heart de­sires.

The US born, but Westville, Dur­ban-raised prop­erty guru trav­els around the coun­try, with her branded trailer in tow, giv­ing talks to stokvels and com­pany em­ploy­ees af­ter her ser­vice has been en­listed by a firm.

But it is her stokvel prop­erty town­ship talks and en­gage­ments with prospec­tive buy­ers us­ing her trailer as her of­fice that draws at­ten­tion to her ser­vices.

“Women have suf­fered for a long time be­cause of be­ing dis­ad­van­taged in the past. They could not buy prop­erty if they were sin­gle.

“I’m also aim­ing at hav­ing more young peo­ple pur­chas­ing prop­erty, they are the fu­ture and have the buy­ing power, ex­plains Khon­jwayo.

Her ex­pe­ri­ence per­tain­ing all things prop­erty was gained through work­ing for es­tate agen­cies in Dur­ban and presently in Sun­ny­side, Pre­to­ria where she is based.

“Prop­erty Talk with Olu K is meant to em­power and ed­u­cate peo­ple.

“I’m do­ing talks, ad­dress­ing stokvel mem­bers on how to make money by in­vest­ing in prop­erty as own­ers of busi­ness and com­mer­cial build­ings. We en­cour­age peo­ple to buy in­stead of rent­ing,” noted Khon­jwayo.

“I have part­nered with ooba, the bond orig­i­na­tors to help fa­cil­i­tate things like credit scores.

“We ad­vice clients how to in­crease their scores, the le­gal­i­ties on the grant­ing of the bond and in­sur­ance.”

Khon­jwayo, 45, whose late mother is a South African and whose fa­ther is Nige­rian, says she makes her money from the 30% cut she gets paid as her com­mis­sion af­ter a pur­chase or sell­ing deal has been con­cluded.
