Proudly representing the rainbow nation’s luxury Cape Town property sector
Fine & Country South Africa is the independent South African division of the Fine & Country Group, which has more than 300 offices and representation internationally. We specialise in luxury property sales in cities and towns that feature high-end residential and commercial properties that are sought after by affluent buyers and sellers. We’re particularly active and successful in Cape Town’s thriving luxury property sector.
Living in Cape Town luxury
There are many South Africans (and people from other countries) who will say that merely living in Cape Town is a luxury, and they may well be quite correct in this claim. Cape Town residents are proud of their status as Capetonians, whilst many of those who live inland and upcountry would move to the Cape in a heartbeat.
Cape Town and in fact, much of the Western Cape province of South Africa is so beautiful, unique, and warmly welcoming (much like the people of this wonderful country) that few will dispute such a statement.
Unique rainbow miracle
One may argue that every country and its population are unique, but somehow, this country seems superlatively unique – if indeed there is such a characteristic. If not, there should be, and it applies to South Africa. Much of South Africa’s uniqueness undoubtedly stems from its past, its mixed heritage, rich history, and diverse cultures, and how each has evolved and developed to form today’s largely cohesive, astounding so-called Rainbow Nation – a thoroughly unique quality in its own right.
The term Rainbow Nation was coined by this country’s beloved Archbishop Desmond Tutu after South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994, in which all registered voters, irrespective of race, were permitted to cast their ballots for a new, all-inclusive political dispensation.
Although the natural rainbow we occasionally see in the sky after a rainstorm is said to consist of seven colours – known worldwide as the colours of the rainbow, South Africa’s Rainbow Nation is far more inclusive. By history, heritage, and modern tendencies to travel and become naturalised in countries other than one’s birthplace, today’s Rainbow Nation consists of folks from right across the world. Consequently, it’s no wonder that the country’s Mother City – Cape Town – boasts so many luxury properties situated in numerous affluent suburbs.
Primarily, the South African rainbow includes local indigenous peoples, those from other African countries, Asians, Middle Eastern people, the Dutch, Portuguese, Britons, Americans (North and South), Canadians, Germans, Italians, Greeks, and French, to name only some countries of origin. Cape Town, once a mere Dutch settlement and refuelling station for passing ships of the VOC, is particularly cosmopolitan nowadays, which adds to the allure of this magnificent port city.
Through our innovative national and international marketing strategies at Fine & Country South Africa, Cape Town’s luxury properties receive attention from buyers and sellers throughout the world. This brings substantial amounts of funds into the country, as international purchasers vie with local buyers for prime Cape Town properties in the luxury sector.
Luxury property transactions call for specialised expertise, as provided by our specialist estate agents. Our agents have/have had the actual experience of living, working, and spending leisure time in the areas in which they specialise, thereby enabling them to provide newcomers and buyers with similar in-depth knowledge and information. Such information covers day to day, nitty-gritty facts that many other companies’ agents fail to recognise as important, and thus ignore several need-to-know aspects of the real living conditions.
