The Eastern Cape is a role-player in the national property arena, award-winning Port Elizabeth conveyancer Liesel Greyvenstein said yesterday.

She was recently honoured with a Young Lion award for her contribution to the national property industry at the ninth annual Nedbank Property Professional Awards, which took place at the Arabella estate near Hermanus.

Greyvenstein, a director at Port Elizabeth law firm Greyvensteins Nortier, was one of ten people countrywide, and the only one from the Eastern Cape, to receive this prestigious accolade that recognises young leaders in the property industry.

Greyvensteins Nortier earlier this year hit the headlines when they were acquired as an associate member by Bloemfontein-based national Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) group, Phatshoane Henney.

This award aims to motivate role-players – who have already made a significant contribution to the property industry – to further apply their talent in this dynamic field. Recipients are earmarked as a force to be reckoned with in the South African property landscape.

“I am very proud of my achievement. When you work hard, it is gratifying to get recognised.” She added that awards like these serve as a motivator.

Greyvenstein follows in the footsteps of PE property guru Jaco Rademeyer, who received the same accolade last year. PE-based broker-owner of Re/Max Independent Properties, Kobie Potgieter, emerged as the overall winner of this year’s Nedbank awards.

“Role-players in the national property industry have to sit up and take notice of their Eastern Cape counterparts when they are recognised in this arena,” said Greyvenstein, who added that achievements of this nature are good for the image of Nelson Mandela Bay and the Eastern Cape as a whole.

“I am honoured to be associated with her (Greyvenstein) and see her as an equal partner in my success,” said Potgieter. Greyvenstein and Potgieter have a close working relationship through conveyancing transactions.
