Chris Louw came to Australia with a vision; a unique approach distinct from any other commercial property business in Australia. This vision was realised by the opening of NAI Harcourts Hope Island embodying a shift in the way people think about commercial property management. In the late 1990's, following a sports career as a junior Springbok and later playing 40 games for the Cheetahs Rugby Team, Chris turned his sports acclaim to building up his successful commercial activities. These were later acquired by PSG Group Ltd and the South African retail banking giant, Capitec Bank. Since selling his business Chris has actively pursued his passion in building a commercial property portfolio and remains an involved property owner himself. Chris studied economics at the University of Bloemfontein and is still an avid sportsman. Chris is married and enjoys spending time with his family. Chris also enjoys playing golf, fishing, diving, dirt bike riding and snow skiing.
