PE Express columnist and conveyancer, Liesel Greyvenstein, recently received a Young Lion award at the 2008 Nedbank Property Professional Awards held at a glittering function in Hermanus.

Greyvenstein – who advises PE Express readers on legal issues pertaining to the property industry in conjunction with 2007 Young Lion and local property guru Jaco Rademeyer – was one of only ten people countrywide, and the only one from the Eastern Cape, to receive this prestigious accolade that recognises young leaders in the property industry.

“I am very proud of my achievement. When you work very hard – like most successful young professionals do – it is very gratifying when it is recognised.” She added that awards like these definitely serve as motivation to work even harder.

According to Greyvenstein, a director at local law firm Greyvensteins Nortier, she enjoys sharing her expertise with PE Express’ readers every week.

“I know it will sound like a cliché, but I really love being involved with the community. “By answering readers’ questions, I can help them negotiate the legal pitfalls of the property market.”

She says if prospective buyers and/or sellers are well educated about the legal matters involved in property transactions, it makes all role-players’ tasks easier.

Port Elizabeth-based broker-owner of Re/Max Independent Properties, Kobie Potgieter, emerged as the overall winner of the awards.

Greyvenstein – who has a close working relationship with Potgieter – says the significance of Potgieter’s achievement lies in its criteria. “The only way in which to even be in contention for this award, is through sustained and consistent excellence in the property industry.”

“I am honoured to be associated with her (Greyvenstein) and see her as an equal partner in my success,” says Potgieter.
