Who we are
The Cape Estates group has been in operation for over 30 years although the rebranding to the name Cape Estates only happened in 2017. 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.
Cape Estates saw a unique opportunity in George 20 years ago and commenced with a focus to develop each stand rather than just to create and sell off vacant stands. To date, more than 1,200 stands within the Kraaibosch and Welgelegen security estates have been created and added to the town of George whilst the group supports local businesses and enhance the economy of George. To date, more than 600 homes have been built in George and nearly 200 housing units in Cape Town. In the early 2000, Cape Estates partnered with the Atterburry Property and Power Construction groups to assist with the construction of all the civil infrastructure for the Kraaibosch and Welgelegen security estates.
In 2013 Cape Estates extended their property development to Cape Town and have developed over 150 housing units in a secure environment either sectional title or full title. We offer affordable secure residential complexes with electrified fences, fibre infrastructure, play area for children that bodes value for money.
George is becoming the most sought-after retirement destination in South Africa and Cape Estates is now with the well-known Groenkloof development the biggest two retirement developers and specialists in George. Both Groenkloof and Cape Estates are situated on the majestic eastern side of George, close to the Garden Route Mall.

Cape Estates delivers either a finished residential/retirement unit or on a plot and plan/build basis to cater for specific needs of its clients.
The company employs over 500+ people and its target is to develop over 120 housing units per year between Cape Town 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.
