Two KZN-based property professionals have launched – the first dedicated commercial and industrial property portal in South Africa. provides a centralised, one-stop listing and browsing destination for commercial and industrial properties countrywide, catering for the growing needs of agents, brokers, businesses and investors who have an interest in commercial properties and need the convenience of a “one stop” website.

“With online marketing becoming the preferred media over print and other forms of advertising, we saw an opportunity to create a specialized commercial and industrial property listing portal,” says co-founder, Louise Gibson. “It also reduces the hassle and cost for those who don’t have big marketing budgets and increases the online presence of brokers who want to keep ahead in this very competitive market.” is not an estate agency and is not involved in any transactions between the various parties. It solely provides a central location for listing and browsing commercial and industrial properties.

“One of the most appealing aspects of the service,” says Gibson, “is that it’s so easy to use and all enquiries are directed straight to the broker or individual listing the property. Brokers who do not want to reveal the details of their exclusive listings can place adverts to attract and guage interest from potential clients.”

“Properties may be listed by agencies or private owners and because of it’s national reach, we anticipate that in the near future, will become the first port of call for all businesses and investors looking for suitable premises,” Gibson continues.

They can also study area profiles of the different commercial hubs across the country and zoom in on the Google map facility to get a birds-eye view of where the properties are situated.

In addition, the website will include a distressed properties section giving browsers the opportunity to bid on a property and receive e-mail notifications if they have been outbid. The bid or offer is not legally binding, but rather an interactive option to purchase distressed properties at bargain prices.
