about Roelien Powell

Roelien joined our team in March 2014 after her family decided to relocate to Australia from South Africa. Her passion for Real Estate started when she bought her first property at the age of 21 and has since bought various residential and commercial properties.

The principles of business come naturally to Roelien due to her exposure to various businesses through her parents. She completed her studies towards a Chartered Accountant in South Africa. Her past roles included a stint in the USA in the Deloitte Miami office, then took on the role as Detection Manager at Old Mutual Group Forensic Services and eventually progressed to the Head of Forensics. This was testament to Roelien’s tenacity and willingness to work hard which comes in good stead in her Real Estate Career. She completed her Management Advancement Programme at the Business School of the University of Witwatersrand. After that she completed her Australian Chartered Accountant conversion with distinction and then obtained her Full Real Estate License.

Roelien aims to use the many different skillsets obtained through her various studies and work experiences and more than 15 years’ experience with real estate transactions to assist her clients. She intends to build long term relationships through open and regular communication which is based on a foundation of exceptional service delivery, honesty, integrity and commitment to achieve the best possible results.

Call Roelien today to find out how she can help you achieve the best net result for your property.

testimonials

  • We had our property with another agent for eight months, we never heard from them unless we phoned them and they always said " O we were just about to phone you......" We changed to Crasto in January, our agent Roelien was very proactive straight away, always emailing or calling about viewings and giving us feed back. Our property sold within two months, but she still kept up her interest in it, and when the sale fell through she already had other buyers lined up. We would 100% recommend Crasto and would definitely use them again in the future.

  • I do want to continue showering Helen & you with thanks & praise for the passionate & sincere way you helped me. I know this is nothing outside what you normally do for people in general but its really nice when you're on the receiving end of being catered for as you two did for me.

    By Nick Dacko

  • Things I liked about dealing with Roelien. 1. -- a highly educated woman with excellent social skills 2.-- able to identify properties which were within my price range 3.-- advised and represented me ably during the negotiation process 4. -- answered my emails succinctly and clearly 5.-- understood my solicitors concerns when they arose 6.-- gained feedback from vendors on my questions pertaining to matters such as septic systems, size of tanks, cavity size for fridge etc 7.-- accompanied me during the building/inspection process, allowing me freedom to discuss issues arising in a supportive manner 8.-- shared in my enthusiasm in finding a new home 9.-- worked with me and my solicitor in developing a contract suitable to my circumstances. 10.-- all paper work matters were dealt with promptly and to my satisfaction. 11.-- Roelien lives on the mountain and her love of the area is infectious and was important to me. Overall, I felt it good luck to have dealt with an agent of such a high caliber as Roelien. I felt in safe hands which is important when embarking on buying and moving. I had been dealing with Roelien for over a year before deciding to make the move to Springbrook and consistency and fun approach was great. Roelien clinched the deal with the vendors for which I am most grateful. Discretion and decency was displayed at every turn. Now I am enjoying spring in this beautiful part of the world.

  • Thanks to Roelien, we have successfully sold our property. We had the property listed with another agent for a long time and after a long time with no contact or sale we decided to change to a different Real Estate Agency as we wanted a quick sale and that is what we got. We had communication throughout our association, with Roelien successfully finding a buyer. Roelien did some negotiation on price for us and everything went through without a hitch and I am sure everyone is a happy customer. Thanks for all your help Roelien.

  • Great Agent - Roelien did an excellent job selling both of our properties in Springbrook

    By Ralph Amos

  • Awesome Agent - Roelien was a great agent and always kept us informed during the sales process. She definitely had her clients interest at heart and was successful in helping us achieve our sales price. We would definitely recommend her.

    By Butch Rossouw

  • Highly professional and skilled agent - Roelien Powell from Crasto Real Estate is the area manager and since she lives on Springbrook Mountain, is familiar with the area and with the idiosyncrasies of living away from council services. She understands house pumps, toilet systems and services available on the mountain. This knowledge is essential but unlike other agents with whom I have dealt with, Roelien possesses personal integrity. Her prior professional life means that Roelien understands finance and a person's personal situation. My characterization is that she works for both the buyer and the seller. I have bought and sold with her. She is an excellent communicator who thinks before she speaks. Roelien is motivated and will always get back to you if you have a query. She facilitated the selling of the property without undue angst to either side. Dealing with Roelien is always a joy.

    By Bruce Ingram

She was very balanced and honest, looking for a fair outcome for both the seller and the buyer. We would highly recommend Roelien.

    By Nathan & Kyra

  • Great integrity - Roelien was a great agent in that she was always available, obliging, prompt with answering questions and never pushy. I knew I could trust her in what she said and her integrity was great. She showed great patience in a long drawn out process.

    By Barbara Eldred

  • Most Professional Service - Our dealings with Roelien were outstanding and most professional. Her knowledge and experience resulted in the sale of our property with a minimum of fuss. We would strongly recommend her if you wish to sell your property.

    By Theodorus & Patricia Sloots

  • Fantastic agent - The action of selling a house is very stressful. Roelien made the process very simple, reducing anxiety levels and stress. By guiding me through the selling process. She was able to provide guidance on the best strategies to market my property, based on her extensive knowledge and experience. I was extremely happy with the outcome, and would recommend Roelien’s services and Crasto as an agency

    By Angela Hewison

  • Patience and Tenacity - Roelien was able to negotiate and complete a very difficult sale on my property . The buyer had many demands and I was informed every step of the way. Her support ensured I did not walk away from the contact as it was protracted and I was ready to cancel the whole deal. She helped me achieve my goal hence why I am using her with my next purchase.
