the leading and trusted name with private sellers, government departments, large corporations and the legal fraternity. Navigating one’s way through the commercial and residential property market can be daunting. ClareMart has a philosophy of finding the right buyer, for the right seller and has carved a reputation for achieving results where traditional real estate channels have failed.

The Group has an active database of 10 000 buyers in the private sector, as well as a Legal and Financial Services division. ClareMart also offers a suite of services, including the marketing and selling of properties, both movable and immovable, and a Valuation division.

In the early 2000s, ClareMart revolutionised the auction floor by spearheading the Multiple Commercial Auction model, whereby a selection of commercial, industrial and residential properties are offered to the public in a single sitting.

ClareMart’s auctioneers collectively have over 80 years’ industry experience and have directly and indirectly facilitated the sale of some of Southern Africa’s most high-end properties and movable assets – including hotels, farms, corporate closures, motor vehicles, aircraft, marine auctions, and residential and commercial estates. The Group annually hosts over 1 000 auctions nationally.

ClareMart serves on the preferred panels of all major banks and liquidation firms nationwide, and today they proudly control the major market share in this sector. The success they have achieved in this market has resulted in more private sellers choosing the auction floor over traditional real estate channels – a trend which seems set to continue on an upward trajectory.

The administrative team behind the scenes is drawn from a pool of highly competent, qualified specialists that support the auctioneers and sales executives, to ensure that the Group collectively renders a top-of-the-line service to its clients, nationwide.

The company is firmly invested in CSI initiatives and has supported the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital, NSRI, Rotary of the Western Cape, CANSA, Peninsula School Feeding Association and Horses for Causes.

ClareMart is proud of its long-standing association with Top 500 and humbled by the prestigious accolade of the Number One South African Company in the Auction Sector – an achievement the Group has consistently attained.

A Level 2 B-BBEE contributor, ClareMart is committed to playing its part in the economic transformation of our country.
