South Africa commemorates Women’s Month in August as a tribute to the thousands of women who marched to the Union Buildings on 9 August 1956 in protest against the extension of Pass Laws to women.
This historic march was a turning point in the role of women in the struggle for freedom and society at large. Since that eventful day, women from all walks of life became equal partners in the struggle for a non-racial and non-sexist South Africa.
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.”
Happy Mother’s Day! For all the moms out there today, we wish you a very warm and thoughtful day full of the love and appreciation.

Surveying houses for sale in Tokai as of today’s date, one can’t help but notice there is nothing available for less than R4 500 000. There is still a dire shortage of housing stock for sale, and a long queue of buyers desperate to get into the area, and yet the days of entry level values of R2 500 000 to R3 000 000 seem to be long gone.
Has the shortage of sellers meant that the few properties that come onto the market can ask a premium? Or is it just a coincidence that these large family homes of high value have all come onto the market at the same time? And will they sell at those prices?
It will be very interesting to see if this bubble of inflated asking prices pushes Tokai into the same league as Constantia. Or will optimistic sellers battle to sell and after months on the market be forced to accept much lower offers and everything settles back to prices as usual.
It’s been a long time since Tokai saw such dynamic trends. What is your property worth in today’s market? Contact area specialist Lisa Rowell for a no-obligation, free evaluation on 082 844 0800 or 021 794 0566.
