About the Purple Team

One day, not so long ago, there was a young woman with a wonderful husband and two beautiful sons. Her husband was a pastor, and they had just moved from Zimbabwe to South Africa. In Bloemfontein, she had the chance of a lifetime to buy a house where her family could live happily ever after. She had a lot of plans for her new home, and so she prayed for her dream house-list: 3 bedrooms, a study for the pastor, a Free State hillock with lots of olive trees, and a swimming pool with privacy. She had R220 000 to pay for all of this, and for a while it seemed like it would be impossible. Eventually, though, her dream house-list came true. It almost turned into a nightmare when interest rates and loan payments skyrocketed – and salaries did not. The young woman realised that she had to make a plan to help keep her dream alive.

She instantly knew that she had found her calling when she applied to become a sales agent for the first time and succeeded. She danced into the offices of a well-known company with wonderful colleagues to begin her career in the world of selling homes. There she decided to work in an area that other agents weren’t excited about, but she fell in love with the people there, and the homes that they had. It made her feel like the most privileged woman in the country. Selling houses quickly became her passion, and, within a year, she was the top salesperson in her company.

For four years, she worked for this wonderful agency, before she knew that she was ready for a new challenge. So the young woman decided to start her own business in her beloved Pellissier, and Annelia’s Properties opened their doors for the first time in 2002.

On the day of Annelia’s Properties’ official opening, she only had three houses to sell. Her family eagerly helped with her first showing on the day of the “Jumping Castle Opening” from a small office in her dream house. She sold all three houses to a successful businessman a few miracles later – at her first showing. She was blessed – purple was popular!

The young woman felt as if she was riding a great purple horse, which was too fast and too strong for her to handle alone. She quickly realised that she needed people – people with their own unique strong points and abilities, and their own unique quirks. It had always been her dream to tie Annelia’s purple to smiles and laughter. The business began to grow, and grow, and grow…
Time simply flew by, and she decided to ask her husband to go on this wild horse ride alongside her. He brought his own talents to the business, and together they walked the path to becoming well-known property investors. Her husband quickly became the top salesperson in Central South Africa – and the property boom of 2005 was fantastic!

Unfortunately, life isn’t always moonlight and roses… The fall of the housing market brought difficult years with cautious banks and rising interest rates. The young woman knew that she had to adapt, and made difficult business decisions. She worked alongside her husband to make adjustments and plans, and they struggled through many nights before the prices began to rise again. With a success rate of 99% in 2014 and 90.3% in 2015, our voices sang purple once more.

Now, fourteen years later, our purple is still strong. Through rain, storms, and droughts, we have reached new heights. We are now “the perfect purple team”.
