DDP Valuers, one of the largest valuation companies in South Africa and an award-winning performer with an enviable list of blue chip clients, was born in 2003 through the merger of De Leeuw Africa Valuers and Powerhouse Utilities, a BEE company.
Through this amalgamation, DDP Valuers connected a specialist team of professionals that gives it a competitive edge. It provides independent property services to the business, financial and legal communities.
Since then, DDP has enjoyed considerable success and has racked up a list of accolades including several Golden Arrow Awards since 2004 at Professional Management Reviews.
Its comprehensive range covers all aspects of property valuation: residential,, commercial, specialized property, agricultural valuations, market feasibility, viability studies as well as insurance surveys.
Notwithstanding the magnitude of their work load and tight deadlines, the company doesn’t compromise on excellence or value.
DDP Valuers, through connecting with national and international partners, have forged exceptional skills to meet stringent service and quality objectives. Staff members keep abreast of their professional demands by constantly acquainting themselves with new international trends in property valuations.
The company, in its endeavours to enhance its status as an industry leader in property services, is constantly benchmarking itself against the best practices in South Africa as well as internationally.
In-house training and constant reviews as well as cross-pollination with international best practices contribute to the further enhancement of the considerable skills of their valuers, project managers and technical staff.
State-of-the-art IT driven support systems provide members of the company with reliable data from recruitable sources.
In spite of exceptional growth the past six years, as well as an impressive portfolio boasting clients from diverse South African industry, these successes have not diminished DDP Valuers’ passion for client service.
Neither has it affected the commitment of the company to values like excellence, and the respect for the client’s requests.
Visionary leaders have the ability to be on the dance floor and on the balcony watching the tango, simultaneously. At DDP Valuers, our management endeavours to do just that.
The directors applaud and reward an entrepreneurial spirit in the company by exploring innovations both inside and outside the company.
Through this we have established an enviable national foot-print, while our BEE track record is admirable.
Yet, ultimately, impressive portfolios don’t guarantee success. Success is measured by the enthusiastic return of first-time or longstanding clients, and by the renewal of contracts.
These repeat-clients have convinced DDP Valuers that their exceptional growth has not been accidental or based on luck, but on sustained excellence.
