Tyson Properties is built on exceeding our client's expectations. Our focus has always been on quality service and working together to achieve a winning solution. We aim to build our brand and positively impact the market with our superior service and innovative ideas.
Tyson Properties was established in August 2005 by experienced estate agent Chris Tyson and businessman Gavin Cunningham.
The rationale behind the creation of the company was two-fold - to provide a specialist agency that is aware of the distinctive needs of the market and to create a sophisticated real estate environment that offers exceptional service to clients and a platform for top agents in the industry to excel.
The company started out with a single real estate office based in Morningside, Durban. Ten years on, we employ more than 270 agents and employees in 19 offices. The company now includes Residential, Commercial and Rental Properties in its portfolio and a Property Management Division.
We believe that the implementation of a sound business plan and strong marketing strategy and constant upgrading of our innovative operational systems has not only helped build a solid referral base, but we have also earned respect as a credible, award-winning brand with strong business principles.
The creation of a happy and professional working environment, a strong corporate identity, excellent operational systems, superior marketing, invaluable support, knowledge-sharing and training and a vibrant company culture have translated into measurable success over the years. Each year, we have exceeded our forecasts, grown our footprint and increased our market share. Tyson Properties now dominates the market in most of the areas it operates in.
We are an upmarket real estate agency that services the entire market. Our brand appeals to all buyers and sellers – from niche properties to suburban homes and city apartments – because we consistently deliver quality service and solutions.
Our mission is to exceed our client’s expectations by offering quality service and working together to achieve a winning solution. To build our brand and positively impact the market with our superior service and innovative ideas.
Our vision is to cement our reputation as an exclusive agency that represents quality service, honesty and integrity. We want to grow our business by partnering with the right people who will live our brand. To be known, not as the biggest, but as the best.
