Global Brands Magazine, a leading international publication providing opinions and news about top brands across the globe, has announced that Tyson Properties has won its Most Trusted Real Estate Brand Award for 2018.
“This comes at a time when we have even bigger news – sometimes numbers speak louder than awards and, over the past financial year, we achieved 100 percent growth despite the very flat market,” said Tyson Properties’ MD, Chris Tyson.
The Most Trusted Real Estate Brand Award was just one out of two awards in the property category presented to South African companies.
Global Brands, which is head quartered in the United Kingdom, prides itself in being an autonomous source of information about branding from across a number of different sectors. The Global Brands Awards were established to recognize performance excellence in the financial, hospitality, lifestyle, automobile and technology sectors.
The awards also aim to identify and create awareness about the significance of exceptional service delivery.
Every year, nominations are accepted from different countries and regions. Information supplied by the nominated brand owners together with a variety of information in the public domain is then adjudicated by an independent external research agency.
More than 7 000 companies were evaluated for the 2018 awards.
The Global Brands Award will be added to the collection of awards that are already proudly displayed at the Tyson Properties head office at Lion Match Office Park in Durban.
“Winning an award such as this makes me extremely proud. It not only differentiates us from our competitors but cements our reputation as a company that can be trusted – one that values and conducts its business with honesty and integrity. Most of all, it is a recognition of the hard work of the 400 real estate agents and administrative staff that deliver on our promises on a daily basis,” said Tyson.
Already the market leader in the KwaZulu-Natal market, Tyson Properties is making meaningful inroads into both the Western Cape and Gauteng markets which it entered simultaneously in 2015. The company is now firmly on the road to becoming an influential national player.
“We now have 30 offices and we’re on target to meet our projected growth to 50 offices by 2020. We have had 100% growth in line with what we projected three years ago which means we have doubled the size of the company and its turnover,” he explained.
He said that Tyson Properties had maintained its strong performance in the KZN market, adding new offices in both Richards Bay and the Bluff over the past year.
In Cape Town, Tyson Properties now has five offices and 70 staff. Tyson expects to announce a franchise plan to roll out the balance of its Western Cape offices by year end.
“Not surprisingly, our highest growth is coming from Gauteng. We’ve just this month opened a new flagship office in Sandton,” he added.
However, most importantly of all, a steady stream of quality real estate agents is joining Tyson Properties despite the challenging market. During 2017 alone, Tyson Properties added almost 100 agents which proved a strong platform for the 2018/19 financial year.
For Tyson, the success of the company is built on the strength of its professional team which have helped grow the business.
When one considers that Tyson Properties started out in 2005 with just a single office in Morningside, Durban, and three agents, the company has indeed come a long way.
Every year, it has exceeded its forecasts, grown its footprint and increased its market share, Tyson pointed out.
“From the outset, our vision was to build a specialist agency that was not only in tune with the needs of the property market but one that offered clients exceptional service and agents a platform to excel. To attract the best property professionals, we strive to provide a happy and professional working environment, together with training, resources and innovative operational systems. To ensure happy buyers and sellers, we focus on providing
quality service and working together to achieve a winning solution. To build a strong brand, we have always tried to more than meet expectations and associated our name with value creation and integrity,” he said.
