With so many real estate companies around why should I join Chas Everitt?
Our brand can be quantified as our products and services all wrapped up and delivered in our values; (see Mission and Values)however just like you can get chicken at Kentucky or the Mount Nelson, we recognise that people all have differing ideas about how they like their chicken!
Whilst both 'outlets' serve great chicken, the expectations from their clients will be very different. In the same way Chas Everitt markets and promises a package of benefits (both service and marketing products) to our clients we need agents who will deliver these a particular way. This 'way' was well described by one of our top agents as a 'service driven experience'. Certainly however we deliver our products and service all actions have to mirror our highest ethical standards and integrity.
Integration with the corporate culture of Chas Everitt is thus a very important issue to the Chas Everitt team. We are not looking for everyone who wants to become an estate agent to join our team. Our selection process is aimed at ensuring that both you and the company will develop a partnership that will be productive and based on shared values.
If this appeals to the type of person you believe yourself to be let me tell you more about the three best reasons to join Chas Everitt;
Open to all agents in the group (subject to attaining defined Sales objectives), the Chas Everitt International Convention is a calendar highlight for Chas Everitt team members.
With past destinations including the likes of Mauritius, Buenos Aires, Thailand, Bali and Mediterranean Cruises in Europe, this is something all of the agents in the group aspire too.
A unique offering, based on a philosophy that our Top Agents deserve real recognition. Our agents form the lifeblood of our group and when they achieve it’s our stated belief that we need to live up to this belief and reward them in a truly tangible fashion.
Chas Everitt “Funvention” 2012
In 2012 we have selected Phuket Thailand as our destination.
Those booked to go to the 2012 Funvention in Phuket Thailand have a lot to look forward to.
It will be another holiday of a lifetime!
Talk to any of our agents that have attended a Chas Everitt “Funvention” and you will understand the value of such a lifetime experience is immeasurable.
This is truly an experience offered by no other real estate brand - it is an experience of a lifetime shared with many existing and new friends.
Many Chas Everitt agents have stated that their increased referral business alone has made the trip worthwhile.

Chas Everitt Estate Agent Endorsements
Miranda Skelton | Chas Everitt Port Elizabeth
I joined Chas Everitt Port Elizabeth in 2011. I had worked for 2 other major franchises before joining Chas Everitt, but hadn’t found the right real estate company that shared the same principles and ethics as me.
When I heard that Charlotte Vermaak joined Chas Everitt Port Elizabeth as a Sales Manager, I knew they were in great hands. Due to the fact that I’d known Charlotte since I’d been in the Real Estate Industry, I was able to have an honest and frank discussion with her regarding my future in the Real Estate Industry.
I realised that the Chas Everitt franchise operates as a family with strong Christian principles, that they help each other and give the right support where needed. Team work and support was lacking the most for me and I discovered that it is very important in the Chas Everitt franchise blueprint. I have now found my family in the Real Estate Industry. Chas Everitt as a franchise group offer excellent training, support and innovative marketing. I am so happy where I’m working that I have now convinced two other agents to join the Chas Everitt team. Thank you for being the best Real Estate company!
Teresa and Brad Wessels | Chas Everitt Amanzimtoti
We recently joined Chas Everitt in Amanzimtoti, under the dynamic direction of Nicola Criticos. Although Nicky is new to the industry I think she breathes new life into it, with no preconceived prejudices she firmly believes in building on this strong brand, her enthusiasm has definitely worn off on her team and we are all doing extremely well.
For both Brad and myself, who have both worked for the two biggest brands in South Africa, the smaller family orientated agency is like coming home. We care for each other, motivate one another and feel welcome every day.
I am positive that the clients pick up on the sense of family and well-being. We look forward to a long association with Chas Everitt and to growing the brand to new heights in Amanzimtoti.

At Chas Everitt we have developed a system driven and truly South African Real Estate recipe for success. The latest products, information systems, support, training and services will ensure the 30+ years of experience we have gained in South African real estate will deliver solid and enduring benefits to our Franchisees, Notebook© Licensees and Agents.

I am proud to be part of the Chas Everitt family.
And it really is a family. From the personal interaction with my colleagues at neighboring offices & franchises, to having the CEO and franchise managers (nationally & provincially) keeping in contact with me and taking a genuine interest in my well-being and business.
Chas Everitt’s marketing is top class and sophisticated but also keeps a fun element by directing some marketing to appeal to families and kids.The vast number of group websites together with our listings being presented on all major SA property portals enables me as an agent to confidently advise my sellers that we will have maximum exposure for their properties.
The Chas Everitt admin systems and websites are easy to work with and the support staff are always available should a problem arise.
The high quality Chas Everitt quarterly / yearly awards are there to incentivize us to aim for bronze, silver, gold, platinum and Diamond. And the recognition from Head office is inspiring.
The strong and committed relationships and bonds with leading financial & originating organisations are also there in place to assist the agent, buyer and seller to smooth the sale process.
All my clients have always had positive stories to tell me when they also worked with other CEI offices and agents within our family.
I am proud to be associated with Chas Everitt and have enjoyed our 7 years (so far... and many more happy years ahead) of loyalty to each other.
“A few years ago I found that I needed a strong International brand to enhance my exposure and to compete with the major players in my area. Having owned a number of franchises over the last 25 years in the industry I did some research and Chas Everitt came out tops. It almost felt like a hole in one!”
“My Notebook team is small but dynamic, easy to manage and financially controllable. Together with Chas Everitt’s branding, outstanding backup and state of the art systems we outclass the opposition by a big margin. In my niche market the Notebook© model is tailor made for my small professional set up. I have subsequently been appointed as the “preferred agency” for Boschenmeer Golf estate.”
“This innovative model can only grow in popularity and have a massive impact on the market as a whole.”
Notebook is a great system – its cost effective and practical.
Owning a Chas Everitt Notebook allows you to focus your time and energy on what we do best – matching buyers and sellers in the property market and making sure that our real estate transactions are concluded quickly and efficiently.
Die Notebook systeem werk vir my.
Ek bestuur onafhanklik my eie klein besigheid van die groot oorkoepelended maatskappy met al di voordele van die groter maatskappy.
Die kliente baat daarby ondat hulle persoonlike aandag van as individu kry.
Chas Everitt's Notebook model allows operators who want to focus on seeling property to arrange their own working hours and schedules effectively.
As a new Mom I found that I could be highly effective as an agent using the systems within Notebook and still ensure I have a healthy family life.
Added to this the support from Chas Everitt asd a company is simply outstsanding
Chas Everitt Franchisee Endorsement
I was part of another real estate franchise group for many years before joining Chas Everitt in 2003 so I was familiar with operating as a franchisee. At the time I wasn't happy so I made the decision to look for another brand.
Real estate and franchising are relationship businesses and a large part of my decision to join Chas Everitt was based on my confidence and dealings in the past with Barry Davies and Berry Everitt – they are true real estate people who understand how this business operates.
I was also attracted to the strong sense of family and the values the group and franchisees represent. Chas Everitt was also a group where I could see my business growing – a strong image, solid systems, ongoing support, quality marketing and particularly their focus on Internet marketing completed the picture for me. I made the right call – my business is stronger than ever, my estate agents are successful and happy, I enjoy my interactions with my Chas Everitt colleagues and I am a proud Chas family member
Our Amanzimtoti operation, which has been around since the 1970’s had been part of another national brand for many years. Due to some dissatisfaction from our side, we elected to select a new partner in 2011.
At the heart of things, joining Chas Everitt had less to do with branding, corporate colours or promises and everything to do with family values, the human touch and the feeling that I am part of something that I can help grow.
What attracted me was the feeling and belief that behind the brand name were real people. People who care, know that we exist and together share the same values and goals.
Business is always conducted by people and people always act from a value system. We choose who we work with and I have found my niche in business with the Chas Everitt family simply because of the values I share with the company and the wonderful people who form the company. We advise about and invest huge assets for our clients on a daily basis. These clients need to feel safe with us and they need to experienced protection that our brand affords each of them.
We not only offer security to our buyers and sellers but we strive to provide a safe and healthy environment for our support staff and agents as well. Chas Everitt is a friendly, welcoming company that offers not only a solid based grounding, but as one of the recognised leaders in our industry is also on the cutting edge of technology development and marketing techniques. I feel at home and safe within a stimulating and "striving for the best" environment.
