Shan, who lives in Reservoir Hills in Durban, has been working at Trafalgar for 12 years. He started working as a bookkeeper and later a portfolio manager at Colliers RMS, where he spent 20 years. He then moved to Trafalgar’s new Sectional Title & Residential Letting Department and was promoted to manager 3 years ago. He says he has loved working in property from his first job and has stuck with it ever since: “Property management is a fascinating and exciting field.”Working at Trafalgar has been very fulfilling. Shan enjoys the rapid pace at which the company implements its strategies and achieves goals. Whether it’s dealing with management and staff matters in his department, working with existing clients, meeting with prospective clients, corresponding with people by email and now managing a new portfolio of complexes – every day is different.
Shan has completed two courses with Paddocks so far (both the regular and advanced UCT Sectional Title Scheme Management courses) and is registered for his third starting in September, the Home Owners’ Association Management course. He has found the courses to be interactive and informative. Shan says the biggest benefit of the courses is that they have broadened his knowledge of the Sectional Titles Act, “especially procedures when dealing with rule changes and creating and allocating exclusive use areas. Paddocks has identified and covered the learning areas for the sectional title industry successfully.”
In his time off, Shan enjoys keeping healthy by gardening, going to the gym (though he’s been a bit lax during the cold months), and taking early Sunday morning walks on the revamped beach promenade in Durban.
