HQM Properties CC was founded in Cape Town in 2004 to fill a gaping hole in the residential property management market. Even with the developments in technology, communication and transport, home-owners struggle to effectively manage their secondary homes or investment properties without being locally based and hands on.
Traditionally estate agents, a neighbour, friend or relative had been assigned the job of looking after these properties. However, property management is not their primary focus This tends to result in poor service and ultimately disappointment for the homeowner. This is the role HQM fills: the management of your home or rental property is our core focus.
Grant Holton, a founding director of the business, currently heads up the management team in his position of CEO.
Grant is passionate about service delivery and is primarily involved in company strategy, sales & marketing.
