real estate services

Real Estate Services is one of South Africa’s fastest growing digital real estate agencies.

With an agent count of more than 340 agents as at May 2022, we review why so many agents are leaving other established brands to grow their own real estate business within the Real Estate Services brand.

What Is Real Estate Services?

Real Estate Services is a company founded by Giovanni Gaggia to help agents retain more income in the real estate transaction.

He has served in leadership roles for major brands in South African real estate. With more than 23 years of experience in the South African Real Estate Industry, he is passionate about helping agents from entry-level to advanced levels, mentoring and assisting estate agents to grow their businesses, build teams, and keep more income for their families.

Real Estate Services provides a strong professional vehicle to serve agents to remain in charge of their business and sales/letting services without needing to do some of the things other companies force on their agents: attend company meetings and adhere to company policies that generally go against the nature of the of the industry, as well as being micromanaged and having to strictly adhere to set commission structures.
