Joburg To Cape Town Rental Property Search – A Clients Story

It was almost one year ago to the day that we started our Cape Town Rental Property Search. Relocating from Johannesburg to Cape Town may well sound like a simple process – not to be in our case! I had never lived in the Cape before – my husband had – so we were looking for an interim rental to allow us the time to both settle into the Cape and to explore different areas prior to purchasing our home.

Endless trawling on the internet, two separate trips to Cape Town and loads of unkept promises by multiple estate agents left us frustrated beyond words. We simply had to find another way to make our move happen – so back trawling on the internet – and that is how we discovered Space and Sue McDermott.

From our first encounter with Sue and Space we knew that we had a professional company and a highly proficient woman on-side. The value that her services provided to us was priceless. Whilst our request looked simple in the brief, our requirements and standards were somewhat specific, so sourcing our interim home proved a little more challenging. Yet nothing was too much trouble for Sue. She searched; she vetted and sourced options to view, advised us, educated us, counselled us and even taxied us around different areas to guide us in our selection of areas in which to live.  At all times in the journey with Space we were kept totally in the loop as to progress and options. Homes that were shortlisted as options by Sue were not only vetted by her but also fully photographed and sent to us for our pre-viewing in Johannesburg – what a pleasure!

And then of course she found the gem! Through her excellent relationships with all the necessary people in the Cape, Sue was able to negotiate select viewing for the home we now find ourselves living in. She did all the necessary arrangements with the agents and the landlord all the way down to lease advice and negotiations. Upon arrival in our home the service continued to the point of taking care of all those little things that you never think about in relocating to a new city. The beautiful flower that she presented us with upon arrival still blooms with the same joy that she brought into our lives throughout our experience with her. Thank you Sue, you are one in a million!

We would not hesitate in recommending Space Relocation. Their service is nothing short of exemplary. If you are looking for a company who knows what they are doing and runs the extra mile before you can even think about it – you have found the right people in Sue and Darren McDermott.
