Get to Know Grant

With business interests in Property, both Real Estate and Investment, Business Coaching and Public Speaking , Grant has built his various businesses on the back of an incredibly successful tenure as the owner of the largest Real Estate Company in the North Durban Suburbs.

After working in London in Finance for the Walt Disney Company for 5 years, Grant spent 2 years as Regional Manager of RE/MAX of Southern Africa in Cape Town.  In 2006 Grant returned to Durban and bought a controlling share of RE/MAX Panache, and under his leadership, the company has grown to an agent compliment of more than 70 Top Professionals operating from 2 franchises, with annual property sales of over R1 Billion.

Grant formalised his passion for buying under-value properties and selling them for profit in 2014 by founding his own Property Investment Company, and he is also a Director of a Commercial Property Holding Company.

In 2015 Grant founded the Durban Entrepreneurs Club to provide a platform for like-minded individuals to not only meet and network with one another, but to be inspired to achieve their true potential as entrepreneurs.  Grant currently sits as Chairman of the Club and has managed to attract very prominent Durban business men and women to speak to his members.

Grant is now a sought-after public speaker on the topics of entrepreneurship, sales, personal development and leadership and uses his own real-life, and staged, experiences to really connect with his audience, and get them thinking about their own success.

Grant attributes a lot of his success to the many mentors and coaches who have influenced his business style and leadership characteristics over the years, and believes that in order to be successful, one always needs the full support of a loving family, which he has in abundance.
