Says Jackson, who has had a passion for property since she was very young and thoroughly enjoyed her years of property development in London, “I have been an estate agent in the Constantia Valley for the last 25 years. I have worked for large, International property companies and pride myself on my integrity and strong work ethic.

Our buyers are a mix of successful local and international clients, including investors who recognise the high capital growth potential of Constantia, as well as families looking to enjoy the unique lifestyle which it offers.

“My first two years in property in South Africa were in Gauteng. I first visited Cape Town in 1972 and I was captivated by the immense charm and inherent, natural beauty of Constantia. I never dreamt that I would be so fortunate as to be an estate agent in Constantia

According to Linda Erasmus, Fine & Country focuses on attracting dynamic agents who can complement the strengths of the existing team and says she has found this in Jackson.
