"Good day Mr Heynike.
Firstly I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my mail. I would like to express my sincere thanks to your team for the assistance and professional manner in which the transfer of my property was done. I can personally say that from the first call and email till now your team has been nothing short of perfect. Personally I would like to thank Bronwen for all the time she took to explain to me your processes and stages. This has been one of the most hardest transfers in terms of the seller and you guys have been nothing short of amazing. I write this email just so you know that your company is amazing.
just want to commend Christine van Dyk Attorneys on excellent services rendered in the recent sale of a property in an estate late. She regularly followed up with the purchaser and also promptly furnished us with progress reports. You could feel her presence all the way up to transfer of the property into the name of the purchaser. Christine definitely went the extra mile and it was an absolute pleasure dealing with her as well as Neil Stuart Jury, who efficiently attended to the transfer.
I wish to share my experience with Erna Visser when I purchased my home in Weltevredenpark 2 years ago. On viewing the unit at 17 Oakfield place, 1237 Cornelius street, Weltevredenpark, Roodepoort in 2017 I found Erna to be very polite, accommodating and very professional so much so that I've highly RECOMMENDED her to numerous people I know. Petrie Hamlyn wanted to sell in the same complex (unit 30) also had Erna sell his property. He too told me he was very impressed with her professionalism . If I ever decided to sell my unit I will definately only request that Erna sell it. I've owned properties before and I've never had the privilege of having an Agent as professional as Erna. She is most definitely an asset to your company.

"I would like to express my sincere gratitute and compliments for the way your company has handled the sale of my property.
A special thanks to Ann Warburton, she works with Rene Ogden. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with her. She has been most attentive, patient, helpful and understanding throughout the entire process. She made a usually harrowing experience a smooth and easy one.
I will most certainly recommend your company to all and everyone who cares to listen (I have already given her some successful leads and hope do so in the future again)
Lesley and I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to you for the excellent service you afforded us in the selling of 30 Oakfield Place.
Your level of professionalism is hard to find these days.
Thank you so much.
Petrie and Lesley Hamlyn"
Today, exactly two months ago I moved into my OWN place!
On 30 September 2018 I decided to sign-up on 3%.Com Property's website - it was time to start looking for my own place!
I've had a look on various other websites, but realized: why would I want to pay more than 3% commission? Bearing this in mind, it would allow me to buy a bigger property!
Christelle Müller (Attorney Agent) was the first person to contact me - my first impressions from her: super professional, honest, fun, honest & a great sales lady! Christelle was so helpful with ALL my questions...and Schalk van Wyk was also involved from the beginning to assist.
Christelle was willing to meet me at the property, not once, not twice...but three times! Christelle also allowed my dad to do his check with his ladder, to stick his head into the ceiling to do his inspections.
My property was registered on 21 January 2019: one day after my birthday, what an awesome belated birthday gift!
Other people that I would love to THANK are:
1. Scalk van Wyk - Attorney - He visited me at my work place to discuss all the paperwork, he also assisted from the beginning to the end (even after the registration of my property).
2. Odette Blanc - Conveyancing Secretary - Very professional, clear & replies promptly on correspondence.
All parties involved very very professional, helpful & friendly throughout the whole process!
THANK YOU AGAIN!
I am looking forward to many wonderful memories in my new place!

This afternoon I saw that the 'proceeds' had been deposited into my Capitec account on Friday 1 Feb 2019, one day after the date of registration. I cherish this efficiency. Thank you. I wasn't expecting to be paid so quickly. This amount is right there where I was expecting it to be.
Thanks very much, indeed, for handling this transfer, with plenty of sms's and emails along the way, keeping us informed.
Compliments of the new year Erna. You know as I was reflecting 2018, the process that I went through on getting approval of this house. I really thank you for having faith and taking all my documents to SA Home loans. You played an important role in this transactions, when I had given up, you brought hope again and surely everything went well. For many years living in the garage with my family, now we have a place called home. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. May our good Lord shine his face on you and make all your dreams come true...
"Dear Maartens Heynike
Accolades for Top Professional Performance: Jenny Venter & Margie. All my life people have said "Never trust an estate agent - they just want your money. They are aggressive and lie just to get their commission". My personal experience has been positive. Jenny Venter has changed my view of the world. Her skills and talents are many. She responds immediately with digital contact. She shares her thoughts and concerns openly and is wonderful warm and supportive. She was persistent, consistent and dedicated in a way that surpasses most people that I have met, let alone agents. She clearly understands how impossibly stressful buying and selling houses is but her experience and knowledge is shared with such grace that I felt instantly relieved. I had less contact with Margie, who seemed as enthusiastic and professional as Jenny. Jenny was referred to me by an elderly friend who said that Jenny managed a quick and successful sale. I could not have made a better decision. Jenny Venter, Margie and their team at 3% have renewed my spirit and faith in humanity. Bless you both and the entire 3 % team for your diligence and outstanding work.
From Licia Karp"
"Dear 3%. Com Properties
We just want to say thank you for your kind consideration, guidance and professional expertise in bringing to a successful conclusion the purchase of our new house.
We are both very grateful for everything you and both your teams have done.

"To whom it may concern
I recently purchased a home using three percent.
Having looked for close to a year or so for a property on my own with no luck. My wife came across a property being sold by three percent. I was at first a bit apprehensive having gone through the mill with a number of estate agents. However my experience with your Agent/Attorney Christina Ponnen is nothing short of life changing. Her calmness and thoroughness through the weeks and process were outstanding. Her know how and expertise put first time buyers (my wife and I) at ease from the get go. I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Christina and Emily in helping us find our dream home.
Our sales process experience with 3%.Com Properties have been brilliant. The team assigned to our property was highly professional, quick to respond, friendly in their manner, clear in communication and in constant feedback with us throughout the whole transfer period. We can highly recommend them as both attorneys who sell property and who attended to the conveyancing/transfer. - H&L Croucamp
I would like to give some feedback on the service my husband and I received by one of your franchisees/attorneys Henry Durrheim. We recently sold two properties using his services and although the experience of selling a property is daunting he made it a pleasant and easy experience and much less stressful than I thought it would be.
We live abroad and was really worried that we will struggle to get them sold and would need to do a lot from our side, but experienced the opposite. Henry is fair to both parties (seller and buyer), going the extra mile to ensure both parties are happy. Whenever something had to be fixed or changed in order to get the property looking its best or up to standard, Henry arranged everything always updating us on any minor detail. As you only deal with one person in the whole process from start to end the experience is stress free and you can keep track of everything and don't need to wait on someone else before moving on to the next step.
I would highly recommend his services to anyone, you will only be doing yourself a favor. Marilise Smit
I would like to thank you and your team for your outstanding service throughout the process of sale of my house.
From the beginning you showed outstanding professionalism and brilliant work ethics and always very caring.
You made the process painless and smooth sailing.
I will definitely recommend you and your team .
Wishing you all the best in all your future endeavours .
Natercia Da Fonseca

I most definately (sic) would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a property. You are most definately (sic) an asset to 3%.com.
I was very blessed to have had you as my agent. Thank you for your professional manner. I've bought a property before and never this unbelievable service.
Thank you once again.
Many many thanks

This is now the second time that you have sold a property for me and both times I have experienced a very professional service along with fantastic reliability. On the subject of reliability it is becoming a rare commodity that service people return phone calls and keep clients informed. you did both.
It is with the utmost gratitude and confidence that I would recommend you to anyone who is in the market to sell their property.
I wish you the best of luck in the future.
Best Stewart Osborne.
I would like to take this opportunity to write this letter regarding the wonderful experience my wife and I had during the sale of our home. It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with 3% com properties. While my wife and I have bought a number of houses and sold this one property, we have never before encountered such a level of excellence.
The experience at each phase of the sales effort was superior, such as innovative efforts in developing prospects, useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, effective showings and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. All of these tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with a noticeable degree of competence, humility, integrity and grace.
Thus, we highly recommend 3% com properties.
Erna, thank you, you assisted us in the most pleasant, patient and professional manner. I really don't know how we could have sold our property without your assistance. Our home sold very quickly at a fair market price, and we had a very smooth transaction and closing. You are trustworthy, honest and reliable.
To the public - If you’re thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, may I suggest Erna. While it might not seem that the listing agent matters, let me tell you – it does. Not all situations are alike. You may need to sell quickly, you may want to get the highest price even if it takes a bit longer, you might want to do improvements to reduce sales time but aren’t sure what will matter. Trust Erna.

TESTIMONIAL – THEUNIS ELOFF
I’m a client of G.J.J. van der Merwe Attorneys, who also happen to be the Bedfordview Franchisee of 3%.com Properties.
I involved G.J.J. van der Merwe Attorneys in the sale of my property through 3%.com Properties, because the all-in-one approach that they have, simply makes sense to me.
Not only did I save money from a cost perspective, but the transaction was also concluded speedily and without the normal frustrations of the seller having to coordinate the documentation and transaction between different role-players.
It made my sales and transfer of property experience a pleasure and I can therefore highly recommend this concept to any prospective seller.

RE: Property Sold
To whom it may concern
Our property was placed in the market with 3%.com Property and Gerhard van der Merwe. They did a fantastic job!
When they listed our house, they did a complete market research of our area and the houses sold within the area over a certain period of time. Based on the research, they did give us the value that we could sell our house at.
They arranged for one “open house” show and our house was sold with only the one show house!
The processes was followed and Gerhard handled all the paperwork and all the legal documents on our behalf. This was so quick and painless!
This was most definitely the best and easiest way to sell our house!
They are very quick and the service that we have received was brilliant!

Testimonial – Gerhard VD Merwe
I, the undersigned hereby confirm of having the pleasure of meeting Mr. Gerhard vd Merwe during the first quarter of 2016 when I was looking to purchase a property.
The property is 9 Lantana Road, Atlasville X2, Boksburg which I am now the proud owner. At the time Mr. Gerhard vd Merwe was the agent representing 3%.Com Properties. Although we were given the opportunity to view the property, Gerhard ensured that the first offer by another party was respected and we had to wait until that deal was either closed or cancelled. It was simple processes such as this which made me aware of certain precautions to take when I decided to sell the property I owned at the time. When we put in our offer to purchase, Gerhard was always willing to go out of his way to assist with the collection and submission of documents, be it on weekends or late evenings as well as offering advice.
Gerhard assisted with information of persons to assist with the loan application which was approved within a short space of time and at a reasonable interest rate. I was then afforded the privilege of working with Gerhard when he did the transfer of the property. Here too, Gerhard handled the process with professionalism and value-add ensuring that a smooth process is experienced by everyone.
Whilst Gerhard went out of his way to assist, he made sure that the integrity of the organisations he represented was maintained at all time. I will strongly recommend Mr. Gerhard vd Merwe to any person wanting to purchase of sell a property.
I may be contacted on any of the details listed should you have any queries.
