As Fine & Country celebrates its 21st birthday this year, Fine & Country South Africa gathered in person for the first time since the pandemic began in the cosmopolitan hub of Rosebank, Gauteng, to celebrate Fine & Country’s 21st international birthday and to award agents for their loyalty and dedication to growing Fine & Country in South Africa.
Fine & Country South Africa recently celebrated its top sales and rentals achievers, awarding long-standing Licensees of up to 15 years for their achievements in 2021. Guests were treated to a dazzling afternoon seven storeys up at the Radisson Red Roof bar, where all enjoyed a magnificent South African sunset before preparing for the black-tie gala dinner. The dinner was hosted at Ethos, which recently won the Best Restaurant Africa at the Lux Awards. This event was the perfect celebration to bring together members of the South African network for the first time in years the excitement of being together was palpable.
This year’s awards were themed the Re-Imagine 2022 Awards, in line with Fine & Country South Africa’s strategy of Re-Thinking, Re-Adapting and Re-Doing as the region moves forward with future growth plans. Celebrating the nights’ winners, CEO John Herbst thanked the entire Fine & Country South Africa network for its continued support and their pride within the brand and said he looks forward to creating a best-in-class customer experience.
The event was a major success, and every aspect of the awards was designed around sustainability and reducing Fine & Country’s carbon footprint as much as possible.
Michonne Eatwell from Fine & Country Helderberg says: "It was amazing to be spoiled and appreciated. It was a beautiful evening, and the entire trip was one to remember. Thank you so much."
Werner van Schalkwyk from Fine & Country Johannesburg North West adds: "Thank you for a great evening! Our agents are motivated and pumped."
