About us

In today's digital culture, where solutions are never more than a click away, why is selling your home still so complicated? Fee's, agents, buyers, mandates...it's easy to feel overwhelmed and out of control in no time. Enter: The Realty Boutique. A full estate agency based online. The full benefits of technological advances are yet to be embraced by the real estate industry in South Africa and we're excited to lead you in this innovative venture. Our revolutionized business model means a substantial reduction of fees and no need for impersonal store front premises, that are largely unused by buyers or sellers. Our easy online access and platforms means you have your agent in your pocket. Our dedicated professionals are never more than a call or click away and are able to offer the most efficient, and therefore cost effective, services.

Of course, we understand that change can be daunting and some of our clients love the creature comforts of the tradition agency, so we've decided to offer both, becoming South Africa's first Hybrid Estate Agency.

As a highly motivated, optimistic and leader within the real estate industry, Gordi has achieved accolades that most agents could only hope to accomplish by the end of their career- but she has no intention of slowing down. Over the years she has owned and operated three thriving real estate franchises, including the esteemed Sotheby's International Realty, where she was a non-executive director nationally, in the role of franchisee representative, as well as managing and promoting the brand regionally in KZN. After 25 years in the industry, going from strength to strength, becoming a top producing agent in multiple areas Gordi has an intimate knowledge of market trends and the ever changing needs of her buyers and sellers. Her passion for property and people shines through in her impeccable work ethic and her creative spirit that never shies away from a challenge.
Digital Marketing Specialist
After graduating at the top of her class at CSU (Cleveland State University) and earing various internships in the USA, Carys has accumulated extensive experience in various marketing fields. Upon returning home in 2013 she decided to follow in her mother's footsteps and dive in to the property game. Over the past 4 years Carys has been involved in every aspect of the industry, from marketing and selling multi-million rand developments, to selling homes and even building a successful rental team. Never one to sit still, she began realizing that things could work better and smoother and that by combining her marketing expertise with her drive for property (and a penchant for technology) something revolutionary could happen. The Realty Boutique is this idea come to fruition, the most dynamic and progressive agency in the province.
