It was the late 1960s. A young 34 year old biscuit
factory manager was looking to buy his first home in
Johannesburg. He met with two of the top estate
agents and told them his budget of R18 000. Imagine
his surprise when the very first house they showed
him far exceeded this amount. When he asked them
why, their response was a haughty, “Is that all you
want to spend? Or all you can afford?” Although
taken aback by their lack of respect, he was also
inspired. If they could be profitable while treating
people in the way that he had been treated, imagine
what could be achieved by someone who really
listened to their customers needs and who sought to
meet those needs. He saw a gap and set out to fill it.
A year later, Eskel Jawitz began his real life property
journey opening the first office of what is today one of
South Africa’s leading real estate brands.
