Seller’s Welcome to Helen Melon Properties

We may be the new kid on the property block, but we are neither new or kids.  After many years of dealing in property for some of the biggest names in the country, the plunge was taken and Helen Melon Properties was launched.

Helen Melon Properties is a boutique estate agency based in Plettenberg Bay, one of South Africa’s premier holiday destinations, situated on the beautiful, world famous Garden Route. We operate
exclusively in this area.

While Plett is a haven to many of SA’s rich and famous - as well as international owners - it is also an amazing magic collection of many mid-range properties, offering a wide variety of houses and apartments.

Having lived and worked here for so long, we know its ins and outs, its quirks and attractions and how this little Jewel of the Garden Route operates. We also understand the property game and what makes a successful agent and agency.

Knowledge, integrity, hard work and personalised service, traits that have served us so well represent our core values. Many agents joining the rush to “cash in” during the boom period, saw hopes of quick money dashed; they rapidly faded away.  We have been through many market highs and lows - good service and hard work leads to consistency and reward for all.

As a boutique agency we do not believe in handling each and every property coming our way, neither do we strive for mass listings, but rather ‘cherry pick’ quality stock. Our goal is to sell mandated properties within an 18-week period (17.8 weeks is the average time taken to sell a property in South Africa).

Helen Melon is an energetic, vibrant and dynamic company, ready to go the extra kilometre for our clients; we pride ourselves on professionalism and adhere strictly to the estate agents’ code of conduct. We have undergone extensive training and receive regular ongoing briefing to ensure our knowledge of real estate market and property legislation is up-to-date.

Our mandate provides for Sellers’ to place Helen Melon Properties on terms and to terminate the mandate.


  • Each property will be professionally photographed and a virtual tour produced
  • A building report on each property
  • A copy of the SG diagram of the property
  • Have an interior decorator visit each property to ‘de-clutter’ it and make it more appealing to buyers
  • Provide a comparative market report/valuation (CMR) for each property.
  • Produce a comprehensive high quality brochure for each property.
  • Provide sellers with a ‘guide to selling pack’ which includes information relating to bond cancellation; compliance certificate contractors; preparing their property for sale; letter to agents (if property has been previously marketed) to ensure they do not find themselves in a position of double commission.
  • Market properties on Property 24, Private Property and various social media channels.
  • Highly competitive commission rates.

We look forward to a long, fruitful working relationship with sellers of property in Plettenberg Bay … we wouldn’t live or work anywhere else!
