Simon has been involved in the real estate industry since November 2007 when he successfully completed the EAAB examination whilst still employed in military police middle management of the National Defence Force.
Upon leaving the SANDF during January 2008, he re-located to Parys, Free State and joined the local office of another major real estate franchise, before opening his own agency, and eventually moving to Harcourts Parys where he acts as a sales consultant for residential, commercial and rural properties, as well as the letting agent for residential rentals. He has recently completed his Further Education and Training Certificate in Real Estate having started this as an independent agent. He is a firm believer in the use of technology as a force multiplier; the use of the Internet as information conduit; and he continually promotes their use to his colleagues at all times.
While he remains involved with the SANDF as a member of the Defence Reserves, he is happily married with three children. His interests include military history, Land Rovers and computer technology.
