Anna Basson vereer agente Dié funksie waar agente erkenning ontvang vir hul prestasies, is ’n jaarlikse geleentheid. Aan die einde van die 40ste bestaansjaar van Anna Basson Eiendomme Stellenbosch is besluit om hierdie funksie te hou aan die einde van elke finansiële jaar, sodat almal die nuwe energie en motivering wat prestasie meebring, kan ervaar. Danksy ’n ongelooflike samestelling van beeldmateriaal deur ’n jare lange vriend en kliënt van die maatskappy, is die gaste by die privaat funksie vermaak met musiek en op-

voerings van die sestigs tot die negentigs (wat sommige se gaste ouderdomme weggegee het!). Wyle dr. Anton Rupert se filosofie, naamlik “Hy wat nie in wonderwerke glo nie, is nie ’n realis nie”, is weer eens bevestig. Mense soos Susan Boyle het gewys dat drome waar kan word. Ná afloop van ’n inspirerende en nostalgiese reis, is die Agente van die Jaar vir 2012 bekendgemaak. Yolandé Visser is as Verkoopsagent van die jaar aangewys. Sy het die meeste kommissie geskryf , nie ’n eerste vir haar nie!

Cornette Liebenberg is as Werwingsagent van die jaar aangewys. Cornette het die meeste “regte” eiendomme gewerf, met ander woorde eiendomme wat verkoop het – ook nie ’n eerste erkenning vir haar nie. ’n Redelike nuweling in die span, Janine Taylor, is as Verhuringsagent van die jaar aangewys weens die grootste groei in die verhuringsportefeulje van Anna Basson Eiendomme). Janine bestuur die Welgevondenkantoor van Anna Basson Eiendomme.

Yolandé en Cornette werk reeds 11 en 12 jaar onderskeidelik by Anna Basson Eiendomme Stellenbosch. “Die kompetisie was weer eens baie sterk en ons by Anna Basson Eiendomme is bevoorreg om so ’n uitmuntende span te hê. “Sonder ons baie bekwame ondersteunende administratiewe span sou ons ook nie die prestasies kon behaal nie,” het Mari Basson-Car-

stens, prinsipaal van Anna Basson Eiendomme gesê. Die funksie is afgesluit met ’n herhaling van opvoerings van gewone mense wat die “sterre” bereik het. “Dankie aan ons hele span van “sterre”! As ’n Stellenbosse firma sedert 1972, het ons besef hoe geseënd ons is en ons sal altyd ons leuse uitleef – ‘Ons leef Stellenbosch’,” het Basson-Carstens bygevoeg.

Refurbishing in the heart of Stellenbosch Nothing gives you that sense of South African history than being in the heart of our country’s oldest town, Stellenbosch. Thousands of tourists flock to this gem of a town, known as Eikestad for its oak tree-lined avenues, in the heart of one of the world’s most renowned wine regions. It takes an effort to maintain Andringa Street, which forms a Tjunction with Dorp Street, a national monument in Stellenbosch, which epitomises Eikestad. The lush green oak trees in summer and soft autumn and winter hues they provide during the colder months transform this oak-lined street into a kaleidoscope of colour all year round. The street is flanked by many complexes, shops and bistros and finds itself in the middle of the hustle and bustle of a cosmopolitan melting pot of student and tourist lifestyles. Just about in the middle of the

street lies Stelmont, a complex fast becoming a part of Stellenbosch history. Known for its ideal location for students and tourists, it was decided to renovate this complex to preserve its aesthetic appeal in the heart of one of South Africa’s favourite towns. Main contractors, Indawo Painting and Waterproofing, were commissioned to completely redecorate and repair the exterior structures of the complex and to waterproof the main roof, concrete canopy on the front façade and balconies. Indawo managing director, Peter Jäck, says, “One of the challenges of this job is the exterior architectural finish. The rough stippled plaster finish demands an enormous amount of paint. To be able to provide a cost effective solution, we had to be precise in our calculations of the paint requirements. The rough stipple can reduce the surface paint spread by up to 50%.” The waterproofing of the roof is

also a complex project on its own. Existing concrete pavers have to be removed to expose the old waterproofing membrane before removal and relaying of this layer can be done. One of the most important aspects of the job is the minimal disruption to tenants, including the small businesses on the ground level. Jäck commends managing agents JPS Trust in Stellenbosch, “They have identified the critical areas of concern and immediately commissioned the repairs. By doing this they have avoided more costly repairs further down the line and their philosophy of responsible asset management means that Stelmont will increase its investor appeal.” Stellenbosch continues to attract tourists to South Africa and the renovations of all buildings form a vital part in maintaining a unique visitor appeal.

Buy close to work to save on fuel costs With South Africa’s energy prices increasing faster than the consumer price index, home buyers should consider moving as to close to their workplaces as possible. That’s the message from Prof Matthew Lester of the Rhodes School of Business, after the release of South Africa’s 2013 budget. A guest speaker at Greyvensteins Attorneys’ Property Forum in Port Elizabeth this year, Lester said that South Africa was in an energy crisis, evidenced by the fact that it was paying international prices for electricity and petrol. It was therefore critical for consumers to start relooking at their energy usage and what it was costing them to travel, he said, adding that transport costs needed to be moved to the top of home buyers’ priority lists. With the very high cost of fuel, and carbon tax coming strongly into South Africa, the cost of which would be passed on to the consumer, people needed to travel less, he urged. While “location, location, location” was still the watchword of real estate buying, he continued, this real estate truism now had to include proximity to work. By living close to work, he said, consumers could make a significant impact on their “prohibitively expensive living costs” to ensure that they would be able to afford to maintain their homes in the long run. Properties were often affordable to buy but too expensive to keep, he added, hence his encouragement of people rechanneling as much of the money they were currently spending on commuting as possible into paying off their bonds and the general maintenance of their homes. Lester also urged people not to rely on the government to put a roof over their heads, saying it was already supporting the majority of the country’s 52 million citizens in terms of social grants. Pointing out that people today had a life expectancy of 100 years, he said many would be retired for as long as they had worked. “The time of the six parent family has arrived – can we afford to all live in different homes?” he asked. To this end, he suggested that there had never been a better time than now to make “structural” changes. This was particularly pertinent to families able to live comfortably on the same property – what he referred to as ‘bunking up’. “This is a huge opportunity to save a fortune,” he said. “Paying your bond is one thing, maintenance and upkeep quite another, so if you’re going to move, make the move now and don’t follow the market.” While a relatively alien concept for South Africans who were used to long and congested commutes, and who placed a high value on location and late model cars, the concept of living close to work was gaining momentum in other countries, says Richard Gray, CEO of Harcourts Real Estate. “The issue of living close to work has been

thrust into the spotlight by, among others, the Chicago-based Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) and Johns Hopkins University in Maryland, USA,” he says. “The CNT uses a Housing and Transportation Affordability Index to measure the true affordability of housing based on where it is located. The ideal according to this index is that housing and transport costs, the two largest expenses in most homes in the US, should account for no more than 45% of their budget, and this is likely to apply to South Africa, too.” The “Live Near Your Work” initiative of the Johns Hopkins University further underpins the shift in home buyers’ minds, he maintains. “The programme has been designed to help employees reduce their travelling costs and times while simultaneously building equity in their homes. “Michelle Carlstrom, senior director of the University’s Office of Work, Life and Engagement, who oversees the programme, relocated and in so doing, reduced her daily commute from almost 90 minutes to just four minutes. That’s not just a huge saving in petrol and wear and tear but also in terms of time: 85 minutes a day multiplied by 22 working days a month equals 31 hours of driving time saved in just one month! Multiply this by 11 months and she is saving 341 hours of driving time a year. Imagine what you could do with that time and the money saved!” Something house hunters can consider, Grant adds, is quality of life. “Living close to your workplace will allow for a better balance between work and home. You’ll have more time to spend with your family or friends and more time to pursue hobbies or upgrade your skills.”

Dit verg kophou om kommervry te trek ’n Trekkery verg kophou en bring gewoonlik baie spanning mee. Hier is ’n paar stappe wat volgens Pickfords Removals (www.pickfords.co.za) en Stuttaford Van Lines (www.stuttafordvanlines.co.za) kan meehelp om ’n trek so pynloos as moontlik te maak: •Kontak vervoermaatskappye en begin kwotasies aanvra. •Reël ’n datum waarop ’n konsultant van die

maatskappy ’n opname by jou huis kan kom doen. ’n Kwotasie kan op grond van hierdie vooraf-opname bepaal word. •Sodra jy die kwotasie aanvaar het, sal die pak-en afleweringsdatums bepaal en bevestig word. As jy nie op die dag van die trek by die huis kan wees nie, reël dat ’n betroubare familielid of vriend wel daar kan wees. •Versekering moet gereël word. Sommige

vervoermaatskappye lewer self hierdie diens. •Op die dag wat vir die trek vasgestel is, sal ’n span werknemers van die vervoermaatskappy na jou huis kom om jou besittings te verpak (indien jy nie self gepak het nie) en in te laai. Beweeg saam met die toesighouer wanneer ’n voorraadlys saamgestel word. Die lys moet elke item beskryf, en bestaande skade aanteken. Jy kan ook items uitwys wat spe-

siale hantering nodig het. Jy sal die lys moet onderteken. •Laat weet die vervoermaatskappy wanneer jy by jou nuwe huis is. Dit is ook ’n goeie iedee om ’n vloerplan te verskaf van waar watter items geplaas moet word wanneer dit afgelaai word. Gebruik die voorraadlys om items af te merk soos hulle afgelaai word. Teken skade aan of lig toesighouer daaroor in. .


Daihatsu Gran Max: A challenge with a difference QUICKPIC The tough Daihatsu Gran Max full one-ton pick-up has become something of a cargo legend since being introduced to the South African market in 2010. This feisty workhorse, with its flat, drop-side load bed, willing performance and impressive economy is already a firm favourite among small business owners and corporate fleets. But this week, the Gran Max is being used for a different challenge: to transport goods being donated to charity. Motoring media from across the country converged on Gauteng to hand over donations to CHOC, as well as the Children’s Oncology Ward at the Steve Biko Hospital in Pretoria. “The Gran Max has become an established and admired player in the one-ton utility market,” says Pedro Pereira, General Manager of

Daihatsu South Africa. “Its full oneton loading capacity, ease of use and functionality are key features, but it’s also an eager performer, while its value-added pricing and economy also translate into low running costs.” The Gran Max is an innovative workhorse in every respect. Its cabforward design maximises the available load area, while still offering a spacious cabin with seating for up to three occupants. The load bed is 2,4 m long and 1,6 m wide, creating a flat-floored cargo area of more than 3,7 square metres. Together with a full one-ton carrying capacity, and drop sides around the cargo area, the Gran Max offers exceptional functionality. The gear-lever is located in the dashboard, close to the steering wheel, freeing up further legroom and ensuring that the Gran Max can accommodate three occupants with ease. In terms of safety, the Gran Max

features ABS anti-lock brakes, crumple zones in front, dual side impact bars in the doors, and a collapsible steering column for frontal impacts. The Gran Max is powered by a 1,5litre four-cylinder petrol engine featuring variable valve timing for improved tractability and response at low revs, without compromising power output at high revs. The result is a maximum power output of 71 kW at 6 000 r/min, linked to a 134 Nm torque peak. A full 90 percent of the torque maximum is already available at just 2 000 r/min The low running costs of the Gran Max are underscored by its combined-cycle fuel consumption of just 7,5 litres/100 km. The Daihatsu Gran Max is offered in standard and high-spec versions, with retail pricing of R139 995 and R149 995 respectively. The price includes a three-year/100 000 km warranty.

The feisty Daihatsu Gran Max is a true workhorse.

New Fiesta ST powers into SA QUICKPIC The new Fiesta ST is Ford’s fastest and most dynamic small production performance car ever, employing a precision-tuned and driver-focused powertrain and chassis to deliver the ultimate Fiesta driving experience. Developed by Ford Team RS, the European arm of Ford Motor Company’s Global Performance Vehicle group, the new Fiesta ST is equipped with a 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine to achieve 0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds and offer 134 kW and 240 Nm of torque. Top speed is 220 km/h. Despite its performance credentials the Fiesta ST remains fuel efficient at the pumps, using an average 5.9 l/100 km and 138 g/km CO2* on a combined cycle run. Ford Team RS tuned the powertrain, suspension, steering and brakes for optimised driving dynamics, and introduced features only previously found in larger performance cars – including enhanced torque vectoring control (eTVC) and three-mode electronic stability control (ESC), six-speed manual transmission and rear disc brakes. The new Fiesta ST features a large trapezoidal grille with a unique honeycomb construction and dramatic rear diffuser element. The refined high-contrast interior is equipped with Recaro seats, and a new sound symposer that channels the engine note to the cabin to ensure the distinctive engine roar is integral to the driving experience. The Fiesta ST also makes use of

SYNC™ and MyKey® technology available in other models in the Fiesta line-up. “The new Fiesta ST delivers remarkable levels of performance, design and quality to offer an unsurpassed driving experience,” says Ford Marketing Manager Gavin Golightly. “South African’s have an affinity for performance and the Fiesta ST speaks directly to that passion.” Enhanced torque vectoring control (eTVC) applies brake force to the inside front wheel of the Fiesta ST when cornering to improve road holding and reduce understeer without affecting speed. New software controls the Fiesta ST’s balance in response to steering inputs under acceleration and braking – and electronic stability control (ESC) offers full system intervention, wide-slip mode with limited intervention, and full ESC de-activation. Both systems support a specially modified front steering knuckle, adapted rear twist-beam with increased roll-stiffness, unique front and rear spring and damper settings, and a 15 mm lower centre of gravity for optimised handling and ride quality. Electronic power assisted steering (EPAS) offers a sharper steering ratio of 13.69:1 and a shorter steering arm for a more direct response. The new Fiesta ST debuts rear disc brakes on the Fiesta platform and introduces a larger tandem brake master cylinder that boosts braking performance. “The Fiesta ST is sure to put a
