Founder & Chief Executive
After beginning her career in hotel management and personnel management, Adrienne soon realised that a passion for people and property burned in her bones. She signed up with a well-respected estate agency and became one of the realtor’s top agents.
In 1991, she began building her own home and started up Adrienne Hersch Properties which literally was a one-woman show. Today she heads up a thriving business with more than 60 agents across Northern Johannesburg and Eastern Pretoria, operating from her Head Office in Houghton.
Adrienne knows all too well that nothing worthwhile comes easy, “I have had to learn the hard way, with no one to teach me. I call it the ‘university of life’, where you learn something new each and every day. This is a dynamic and exciting profession, with no constants and significant highs and lows.”
She has built her business on a foundation of Aspiration, Motivation, Inspiration and Determination. These are the very same qualities she looks for in all agents. “Part of our success is that I am still very involved with the selling and marketing of key properties and I train my agents personally, believing in 100% hands-on basis during their sales negotiations.”
The company has a definitive hallmark which people describe as savvy, street smart, passionate and single-minded. It is this combination of experience, hard work and expertise that has seen the company evolve from a start-up to a success story because they are serious about making realty a service-driven industry.
“As a marketing and sales-driven organisation, we understand that it is only through building relationships and delivering on people’s dreams that we can continue being successful. We believe in hard work, constantly striving to set new industry benchmarks. As Gary Player famously said: ''The harder you work, the luckier you get."
