The REAL Estate Company, formerly Funnell Properties, is an independent estate agency that has been operational in the property market for over 20 years.
Starting out as sole proprietor, Derick Funnell Properties back in 1998, it was then transformed in 2012 to comply with legal educational requirements, as well as to adapt to the modern era of real estate. The rebranding was completed to "Funnell Properties Pty Ltd" by the new Principal / Owner, Brendon Funnell, a Master Practitioner Real Estate (NQF5/PDE5), in 2012.
As a strategic move to align with our expansion into Letting and the Commercial and Industrial fields, owner and Durban based entrepreneur, Brendon Funnell implemented a full rename and rebrand of the business in 2019. We are a proudly South African company, invested in the future growth and development of our country's real estate sector and this identity change reflects this. Having always been known in the marketplace as only “residential sales specialists”, the name change was essential to avoid this ideology.
Having grown organically on reputation in the marketplace, and now employing over 15 agents across the board, we firmly believe that integrity, professionalism and relationships that are built on trust are essential to doing good business.
We are modern thinking RESIDENTIAL, COMMERCIAL and INDUSTRIAL - SALES and LETTING SPECIALISTS, with three distinct divisions for each. We are determined to show you just how #AgentsAddValue by providing exceptional service, in-depth industry knowledge, tech savvy skills and most importantly, a personal touch to the work we do.
At the REAL Estate Company we are not restricted to working in any particular areas, but we concentrate on the Upper Highway, Pinetown, Queensburgh and Greater Durban Areas of KZN.
As long-standing members of various multi listing and networking groups, we are also able to provide buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants, developers and investors with a range of options to suit your exact property needs. Networking SELLS, and we will share and work with any compliant, reputable agency to best serve your needs.
