Introducing Marco Garuti

SAHomeBuyers Property Buyers’ Consultancy is managed and run by Marco Garuti, a licensed property specialist with real estate experience since 1997. Marco applies his previous experience in financial consulting to critically approaching property as an important asset class for wealth creation.

“Demand and supply factors are what ultimately determine the future value of a property. Insight and deep understanding of the factors of demand for property is what we share with our buyers.”

Due to the director’s standing in Cape Town as a highly respected property specialist, many “unique” properties, or off plan developments, may be discussed with him prior to being released to the market, giving SAHomeBuyers clients exclusive access to properties we often call silent listings.

Also, as Managing Director, Marco deals with all negotiations personally. Marco is renowned for his competitive business edge and will no doubt negotiate the best possibleand terms – acting purely in the buyers’ interests. On many occasions, he has advised clients not to proceed with a purchase. If it is not at the right price and in your best interests, our impartiality, means he will advise you to continue with your search.

Why Marco bought a property on a security estate

After a thorough search of all the security estates in the southern suburbs and Southern Peninsula of Cape Town, Marco took up residency in Lake Michelle, Noordhoek in 2010, after purchasing a plot in 2008 and deciding to build his own home on the estate.

As a seasoned real estate professional Marco had looked at many developments throughout Cape Town and a combination of factors saw Marco decide to purchase on one of Cape Town’s security estates.

“When making the decision to buy a property, I look for location, safety for my family, the amenities on offer and, of course, the investment potential. Security estates have long lost the tag of gated communities and offer not just the lifestyle I was seeking but also investment return.”

Why Marco became a property buyers consultant

Buyers’ consultants are not that common in South Africa and we asked Marco why it was he decided to focus his expertise as a buyers’ consultant:

“There are some excellent estate agents in Cape Town, but no matter how good they are, their contractual obligation is to represent the seller – in short ensuring they get the best possible price, terms and condition for the owner of a property.

As a  property buyer’s consultant I am still a licensed professional realtor but I represent investors, homebuyers and developers in purchasing residential and commercial real estate. As a buyers’ consultant I can focus and specialise in searching, evaluating and negotiating the best possible price on behalf of the buyer. We do not sell real estate. SAHomeBuyers is totally independent. We give impartial advice on what to buy and where to buy to maximise your returns.”

Marco’s knowledge of security estates in and around Cape Town and the Southern Peninsula is second to none and dozens of happy home owners and investors are testament to his client-focused and value-adding service.

“There’s nothing better than being invited around by a client to see their new home and how they have settled in. I have assisted both local South Africans as well as many foreign buyers in securing that right plot or property and the biggest compliment I receive is just how many of my clients refer me on to friends and family.”
