Cape Estates Group of companies have been in existence since 1989. The group of companies rebranded themselves in 2017 as Cape Estates due to its focus on security estates in Cape Town, Mossel Bay and George. The group focused on commercial properties in the earlier years but changed focus in 2002 when 280ha were bought in George known as the successful Kraaibosch development with an initial 800+ residential development. Where the initial focus in 2007 was to only develop and sell vacant land, it changed over time and the Cape Estates group have built over 300 residential homes in George alone and over 50 housing units in Cape Town.

The company is focused mainly on residential developments but three years ago started with the development of retirement housing due to the specific needs of retirees with added benefits of an assisted living and/or frail care facilities. Cape Estates delivers either a finished residential/retirement unit or on a plot and build basis to cater for specific needs of its clients

The company employs over 450 people and its target is to develop over 120 housing units per year between Cape Town, Mossel Bay and George. The company offers a unique service to clients from start to finish for any housing dream. Although the company have partnered with the most well-known real estate company Pam Golding, we also have our own in-house sales consultants. Our in-house architect and project managers ensure that we listen and cater to all our client’s needs and ensure that a quality product is delivered each and every time.

The skillset of the Directors other than property experience of over the past 30 years ranges from a civil engineer, chartered accountant and merchant banker.
