"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.

Sincerely Grateful

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

Dear Erna.
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.  


Dear Erna

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. 

Many thanks

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!

Kind Regards

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. 

Yours faithfully
