The Valuator Group has set new horizons. Gavin Commins has taken over as Group CEO – something that was planned a year ago so that he can impart his vast experience, knowledge and contacts to accelerate the Groups expansion plans throughout Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands.

The Group’s management has been strengthened with a team assembled by Commins to offer clients the best professional service possible covering all the unique and highly specialised range of valuation services offered.

Compliance and ensuring that our valuations cover the new international regulations is top priority. We have qualified and, as important, experienced staff in all the key valuation services we offer. This, in turn, is backed up by our on-going Service Excellence campaign.

Commins mentioned that clients should do their homework prior to appointing Valuers. We often see qualified Valuers securing work and signing reports, yet their knowledge and skill in that field of expertise is limited. Professional valuations need to stand up for scrutiny in a court of law and this is why we focus on compliance, training, education and the skilled expertise required for all our services offered. Currently the Group has 3 Candidate Valuers all mentored by senior Valuers in the Group.

2015 has started with a bang and with offices in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg (with plans to open in Port Elizabeth within the next few months), the Group is well positioned to service clients nationally. Brokers in particular are keen to use the Groups “one stop” valuation package, especially nationally.  Besides South Africa, the Group has licensee offices in Zambia & Ghana with Tanzania currently under negotiation as well as our own office in Mauritius.
