DEVELOPED ABILITIES 

Reinier believes that to be a successful individual one does not only have to maintain a high level of self-discipline and diligence, but also be able to face, and rise above, challenges and disappointments.

 

“As a keen sportsman, the disappointment of my sport career coming to a premature end has taught me some valuable lessons and matured my outlook on life. Obtaining my academic and professional qualifications via distance education, whilst being employed full-time, required high levels of motivation, discipline, careful planning, independence, and hard work.”

By further specialising in various fields of the property business sector, he has developed a better understanding of the structures, challenges, opportunities, and strategic networks within the property industry.
