A decade of real estate with IPC Bathurst
ocal real estate agency Independent Property Consultants (IPC) in Bathurst is celebrating its 10th anniversary and looking back on a decade of excellence and service as they proudly help create home-owners.
IPC Port Elizabeth was established in 1992, and has grown to be one of the most successful estate agencies in the Eastern Cape, with more
Lthan 40 registered, qualified real estate agents working for themselves under the IPC umbrella.
Principal of the Port Alfred IPC Gill Turner opened an IPC Bathurst branch in 2008, adjacent to the Pig and Whistle pub, under the management of her sister, Jacqui de Lange.
“Both Port Alfred and Bathurst are experiencing good sales,” said Turner.
The Bathurst branch has also become a hub for the community and visitors alike where they are welcomed by the always friendly Jacqui de Lange who is ready to assist with any query or simply offer directions or a cup of coffee.
“It has been a great journey and I have learnt a lot. We have also forged great friendships and look forward to the continued success of the business and the community,” said De Lange.
Having always expressed a passion for property, Turner began her career as an estate agent in 1971. “Then I stopped to raise a family and assist my husband, Rob, with his business for the next 25 years.”
Turner went back into the estate agency business in Port-Alfred 18 years ago and worked for two different agencies before taking on the IPC franchise.
“You have excellent exposure if you list your property with IPC, as it will be accessible from the main IPC website and Property 24, giving exposure to a vast range of people who may be interested in buying property in our area.”
She said that her team, including her qualified agents De Lange, husband Rob and secretary Noleen Horrmann, were all committed to the business.
IPC has certainly done their part in putting Bathurst on the map through their passion for property and always going the extra mile to accommodate the needs of their clients. “We have a very enthusiastic sales team,” said Turner.
Thus far, year-on-year, Turner and her team have seen the company grow in terms of revenue. “We hope to continue this trend,” she said.
So, if you are looking to sell or buy, speak to an estate agency that understands your needs and will do their utmost to fulfil them. Speak to IPC, as they know the area and the people and will give you the professional advice you would expect from one of the Eastern Cape’s most successful franchises.
The last word is Turner’s. “It’s a way of life for us; the small team with the big dream.”
