A BIT ABOUT THE OWNER
Karl hails from Cape Town where he studied Graphic Design and spent many years working freelance in the creative art and advertising industry. In his spare time Karl enjoyed doing repairs and maintenance, a hobby that eventually grew into restoring old properties for profit.
SKILLS AND EXPERTISE
Karl's first project was his home which he renovated extensively in 2005. Wanting to realise opportunity and further his career in real estate he sold and moved to Johannesburg where he spent the first two years investing in buy-to-let property in the Inner-City. Karl also worked at sourcing speculative investment opportunities for a South African based property investment company. Here he learned valuable skills in property management, property rehabilitation and developed not only a methodical process for qualifying opportunities but also an intuitive sense for identifying opportunity while still objectively understanding the obstacles and risks standing in the way of realising the profit.
Karl founded Benn Benn Integrated Project Solutions in 2009 after realising that there was a need for a property renovation service that does more than just renovate. With his combined property expertise, Karl can objectively advise clients where to spend their money and because of their industry know-how and contacts they can source affordable materials and decor, always making sure that budgets are adhered to so as to not over-capitalise or waste clients money. With this philosophy, Benn Benn has been successfully renovating properties in Gauteng for the past 9 years.
