VDMV Property Group was established in 2003 when Izak van der Merwe bought the first property in the Okavango industrial area. With a successful career as a financial advisor behind him, Izak’s skill in matching timing and opportunity saw him buying his first swathe of vacant land in 2005. This land now comprises 55% of Northgate Estate at the intersection of the N1 and M5 just outside Cape Town – one of the best-placed business developments in the Western Cape and a premium light industrial / retail / DIY destination. 


In 2005 VDMV Property Group also bought the land that now houses the most strategically positioned service industrial park in Cape Town – the 35-plus hectare Brackengate Business Park. Set on the ‘golden triangle’ surrounded by the R300, N1 and N2, investor and owner-occupier interest has been clear from the start, when 40% of phase 1 (77 erven) was sold in a 24-hour investment rush.


In late 2008 Craig Myburgh joined the team, followed in 2014 by Wihan de Villiers and Bennie Rheeder, who brought on board strong development, banking, financial and legal backgrounds.


With its success and track record firmly established, VDMV Property Group is always excited to see new projects take shape, and is on the lookout for new partnership opportunities.
