About Jonathan

I’ve had a passion for entrepreneurship and business since I can remember. In fact the first book I ever read was Richard Branson’s autobiography “Losing My Virginity” where Richard talks about how he started his business, Virgin, from literally nothing and built it into the empire it is today.   Ever since then I’ve dreamed of building my own empire and using my knowledge and experience to help others.

I belong to the well know Acutts property family and just like most children working in their family company, I had to work my way up from the bottom. I clearly remember walking the streets as a young real estate agent trying to solicit my first property to sell. I was successful and sold my first property years ago for R500 000. Over the last 14 or so years I have been directly or indirectly involved in hundreds of real estate transactions, with my most recent property transaction being a little under R9 000 000.

These days Acutts is a national real estate franchise group, and as a franchisor I have the privilege of combining my two passions into one wonderful and rewarding career. I now spend my time developing the best and most efficient business and real estate processes and systems for my franchises so that they can become better and more successful business people.

I am married to my wonderful wife, Mia, who inspires me to be a better person every day. I also have a son, Joshua, who thinks I am his super hero, when in actual fact he is mine.
