Chris grew up in Klawer, Western Cape, and was raised in a farming community. He worked on farms during school and university holidays, and developed a firm understanding of what makes farms and farmers "tick" .
Following that, he studied BSc Agriculture and Economics at the University of Stellenbosch, whereafter he worked for an irrigation company and then went into development and retail.
For the past 13 years he has been an entrepreneur and involved in various entities from helping establishing table grape farms in Ethiopia, developing fuel stations to being a Spur Franchisee. This vast array of exposure in business has given him insight into various sectors of the business and property market. Since 2015 he has been an agent with Agrisell focusing on development opportunities, leasing and the selling of farms and developmental land.
Based in Stellenbosch, he focusses mainly on the Winelands and Greater Cape Town metropolitan area.
"I believe the value we create in this world is largely based on the ethical, long term relationships we build. Combined with hard work and passion, we can achieve anything."
Chris, spends most of his free time raising his two sons and travelling the world with his better-half, Zelmarie. Being a true adventurer at heart, he believes that you teach your family the values that matter most while being outside in nature.
Chris is also an extreme sports enthusiast and participates in Thundercat racing (proudly representing Team Agrisell) as well as racing motorcycles.
"Agrisell, for me, is one of the few companies that strive to assist each of their agents to develop to their fullest potential, while also giving them the freedom to explore and find their unique niche. With a solid value driven system, you are always assured of a Principal and fellow agents that supports you to achieve your goals."
