Jawitz Properties
While it is true that, like other industries, property goes through cycles, we at Jawitz Properties believe in the future of the South African property industry. This is why we are expanding our business by offering like-minded entrepreneurs the opportunity to invest in a Jawitz Properties franchise.

The Brand

Jawitz Properties was founded in 1969 and is one of South Africa’s leading residential property companies with an outstanding reputation for service excellence and customer satisfaction. Known as Eskel Jawitz Real estate for most of its history, the company re-branded to Jawitz Properties in early 2004, reflecting both the historic success of the company and a commitment to the future under a new generation of leadership. Currently there are 48 offices in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Garden-Route, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Bloemfontein and Mauritius with over 500 employees. Our brand is growing fast and moving from strength-to-strength with each new office that opens.


Worldwide, franchising has proven to be one of the most successful models for expanding a business and, for the franchisee, one of the most intelligent ways of starting – and growing – a business. By combining the proven business formula of the franchisor with the entrepreneurial drive of the ‘owner-operator’ franchisee, the likelihood of a successful business venture for both parties is increased significantly. Jawitz Properties enjoys a substantial market share in our current markets, and an enviable reputation among our clients, our competitors and the industry as a whole; our potential for growth continues to beckon.


The Jawitz Properties franchise strategy maximises your success potential by providing you with a proven business model, a well-established and highly regarded brand, outstanding training, and on-going business and marketing support. We also offer you state-of-the-art technology to support your sales processes and management functions. We pride ourselves on being a ‘hands-on’ company, and see ourselves as ‘investment managers’ whose purpose is to do our utmost to support you in growing your Jawitz Properties franchise. In short, we give you our full commitment.

Are You Our Next Franchisee?

Our target market ideally should have property industry knowledge or experience, or business ownership or management experience. The Franchisee needs to have integrity, honesty, be a team player and leader, a go-getter with most importantly an enthusiasm and passion for the property industry.
