Marcelle Baardt is a licensed real estate agent with over 22 years experience in real estate. She comes from a long family tradition of real estate professionals. She acquired her real estate licence in Cape Town at the age of 18.
It was natural for Marcelle to start her career in the family’s real estate business, where her interest in real estate developed into a passion for the industry. Working for her parents taught her some valuable lessons and their passion and love for their clients became her example. I guess it’s fair to say that real estate is in her DNA!
A word from Marcelle herself
“I place great emphasis on trust and integrity, and offer the highest level of importance and priority to all my clients. My personal philosophy in real estate is to help educate all my clients in the process of buying and selling a property. I feel that well informed clients are more successful at all levels of the real estate transaction process.
To ensure smooth transactions, I like to personally handle or oversee, where possible, all aspects of your real estate experience. These could include: obtaining the best financial mortgage broker advice possible; preparing in-depth, comprehensive market analysis; and securing a consultation for you with Marco Investments and Marco building consultants to complete your real estate transaction.
Our company and personal strengths include outstanding leadership, trust building and outgoing and our very energetic personalities. We are all available 7 days a week and we dedicate ourselves to offering you the best service possible. ”

We can customise your marketing plan to include a number of additional marketing strategies, depending on your goals, property type and location. Here are some examples.
Announcing your first open house by sending a postcard to households around the neighbourhood a few days prior to the open house. This strategy makes sense in neighbourhoods with relatively low levels of houses for sale , and in neighbourhoods where residents recruit their friends to move to the area. In some cases we could also announce your open house by sending an email to the people in your neighbourhood.
Conduct a neighbourhood- wide open house.
Place directional signs in your neighbourhood. Depending on your location, some well placed signs can help guide commuters to your home
