Cell: 084 586 7890

From 1984 for the first decade or so Mariette Rossouw Eiendomme was known for only selling real estate. As a result of requests from many owners, though, we did change our policy round about that time, and started to do some rentals on an ad hoc basis. After many an appeal, we opened up a formal rental office in 2004. Hubbie Herman, having been a sleeping partner of our selling company anyway, started the rental side as an independent office.

Thus I am pleased to introduce you to the
Broker/ Owner of the Rental and Leasing Office:

Herman Rossouw
B.Sc.; M.Ed (Stellenbosch); B.Sc. Hon. (Port Elizabeth): SAQA NQF9

Herman and I moved to Port Elizabeth when we were appointed on the very first staff for the Port Elizabeth Teachers' College - Herman as lecturer in Mathematics. After having learnt that the new college would have its campus built in Summerstrand, we bought a plot in Louis Botha Crescent. In 1973 we built the house that we've been in ever since! Of course, on 40 years Herman knows the area very well. And in his steady, even-tempered and relaxed way, he has built up for himself a respected name through many long-standing relationships and trust.

With a good balance between being service- and people-orientated, he relates extremely well to the rental industry, and he uses his strong, steady tendencies to accomplish his goals. He likes to assist the Lessors in being their personal representative for their properties.

Even as he manages the rental properties, the fact that he can make decisions without becoming emotionally involved, benefits him tremendously and he can successfully address the problems on the mere facts. He is helpful and considerate in a modest way, and he prefers the "tried and true" method. He always operates with the greatest patience and steadfastness, and will at all times bring stability to any group. Solving any problem at your property will be seen by him as a nice challenge for the day, which he always tackles with a painstaking seriousness! Trust him for that!

Still, I am your Specialist Consultant regarding all property matters and, if you have a house to let, or need help with your rental property, please call the Office known for service "Beyond Excellence"!

Of kom ons sê dit in gewone Afrikaans: Voortreflik Voorwaar!

Mundy registered as a Property Consultant in August 1997, and worked as an independent property-broker for a few years. Coming from a 30-year background of marketing earlier, he subsequently moved to Summerstrand. Here he started to look for a full-time position at a leading property company at the beachfront. He took up his new position with MARIETTE ROSSOUW & ASSOCIATES early in 2005 with great enthusiasm.

As a team member Mundy stands out as an energetic and driven agent who likes daily challenges and who diligently perseveres at any task. He will have a lot of patience in trying situations - as one experiences in the demands of the property market, and will always display great sympathy with clients in relocating times. He is frank and open, whilst his natural quality of being non-judgmental is of great value in his relationships. We also know him to be a person who is a good listener, considerate and respectful.

As a true property professional Mundy is strong at paying attention to important data and collecting analytical detail, and he adds real value through his marketing skills and experience.

Anèl Van Deemter

Tel: 041 583 5453
Fax: 041 583 3456
Cell: 076 143 0508

Anèl and her husband, Thomas, moved to Summerstrand some 14 years ago when they  decided to invest in a home in our ten-minute-town – ten minutes to everything: schools, airport, the beach, town, doctors and even all sorts of shops and businesses.

Subsequently they moved to Wolfsburg Germany where Thomas held a position at Volkswagen for a few years. On returning, Anèl was looking for new challenges and joined our team in May 2007. Anèl, a qualified teacher, has had valuable experience earlier in running her own franchise school successfully for four years. Her decision to join the property industry was prompted by the inherent flexibility which would stand her in good stead in raising her children. Anèl is the devoted mother of two pretty girls.

Thomas and Anèl enjoy the advantages of living at the beachfront and being minutes away from schools, Summerwood Primary and Pearson High. They find it gratifying to be actively involved at the schools and serving the community in general in many ways. They also value spending quality time with their family on regular family-outings and any exciting outdoor-activities.

Anèl is honest and discreet in every situation and therefore is a important asset to our team.  She is sociable, enjoys the uniqueness of every person she meets, and is accepting of others. She is considerate and a responsible person – you can always rely on her, and is always ready to help!  Anél is quick to pick up on group dynamics and skilled in fitting-in with a group where she implements her balanced use of judgment.

Anèl is someone who brings stability to a team and, yet, she is also persistent and persevering in her approach to achieving her goals, and especially in meeting the needs and requirements of her clients. So, please call her for property info, or even just a friendly chat: 076 143 0508. You can also call her partner, Shirreen on 083 307 5722.

She is considerate, compassionate and accepting of others, and therefore builds good relationships. She is also sensitive to the feelings of others and is able to display real empathy for those who are experiencing difficulties. She prefers to help and support others and it is important to her to build confidence in others. She is persistent and persevering in her approach to achieving goals. Yes, Tokkie prefers to plan her work and work her plan, and therefore believes in a job well done.

She prefers to work in an environment in which she deals with people on a personal, intimate basis, and thrives on assignments with a high degree of people contact. Tokkie and Richard love to entertain and both are keen to experiment in the kitchen; thus leisure-time activities usually include friends and family.

Tokkie’s motto “Success comes not through wishing, but through hard work faithfully done” keeps her focused and dedicated. She can be depended on, trusted at all times, and would never let anybody down. Kindly call her for information or an appointment today: 084 605 2727.
