GROVE PROPERTIES – PUTTING PEOPLE FIRST
Launched more than a decade ago, Grove Properties is a family owned property business based in the northern suburbs of Cape Town.
Starting out knowing the potential of property to deliver inflation-beating returns, the Grove family purchased their first investment property over 15 years ago.
Shortly after Grove Properties was born and served as the vehicle to assist other investors and property owners, who recognised and valued their success at finding the right tenants and exceptional property investment opportunities.
Grove Properties has grown over the years and become firmly established in Durbanville and the wider Cape Town area.
