Transfer deeds of the first building bought by CEO Mr van der Merwe.

VDMV Property Group started in 2003 when Izak van der Merwe purchased the group’s first property in the Okavango industrial area in Kraaifontein, Cape Town. With a successful career as a financial advisor behind him, Izak’s skill in matching timing to opportunity saw him buying his first parcel of vacant land in 2005. This land now makes up 55% of the Northgate Estate at the intersection of the N1 and M5 just outside Cape Town. One of the best situated business developments in the Western Cape and a premium light industrial/retail/DIY destination.

2003 saw the introduction of Gary Luyt to Izak van der Merwe. Gary is a respected property broker and it was this collaboration of skills that cemented a lasting relationship and took the business to the next level.

In 2006, VDMV Property Group purchased the land that now houses the most strategically positioned light 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.

Xander Rau and Tyrone Kleinjan joined VDMV Property Group in 2018, bringing with them a wealth of experience in estimation, project and construction management.

Rounding out the team, Paul Stevens joined VDMV Property Group in 2022. His extensive knowledge and experience in project and development management elevates the range of competencies for an already impressively skilled team.
