Meet our Newbies

 

This year Rabie welcomes to its ranks a vast range of talented individuals across the spectrum. With the new R1billion Century City Square development having recently been completed, together with the ever growing Burgundy Estate, the recent acquisition of the management contract of the Great Westerford building by Rabie Property Administrators, and the planning for the redevelopment of the Ratanga precinct starting, these individuals will be covering the relevant bases and entering our company at a very exciting time. We anticipate great things from the new bunch.
