PrivateProperty was conceptualized in South Africa in 1997, but only gained early traction after it was incorporated in 1999. The founding purpose and vision was to leverage the internet to disrupt the way property was sold, removing the need for a middle man or estate agent. PrivateProperty currently has over 4000 broker offices across South Africa and represents most of the stock of residential real estate available on the market at any time.
