Hold Real Estate has named Julian Nathan to head its new Johannesburg office. The Israeli-based residential real estate firm recently announced expansion of its activities in South Africa.

Currently in the process of making Aliya, Nathan comes to Hold with 25 years of experience in sales and marketing; his first contact was as a client/investor, purchasing property through Hold. He says that his experience made joining the firm feel natural. ““We were strongly in sync in terms of ethos. Hold’s service was impeccable. When I was based in Johannesburg, I felt extremely confident buying property in Israel through Hold. Communication is professional and thorough and the company conducts itself with deep integrity in its painstaking due diligence process. He continues to be actively involved in the Johannesburg community and plans to commute between Johannesburg and Israel. Nathan is available to provide expert advice for South Africans on offshore investment in Israel’s exciting property market.

“Opening a South African office and adding Julian Nathan to the team is part of our effort to broaden and deepen our service to South African investors,” says Hold CEO Ari Shapiro. “We’re looking forward to working together; our clients are sure to benefit.”

Julian Nathan announcement

I am thrilled to announce that I will be heading-up Hold Real Estate’s South African office, which will be based in Johannesburg. Having become acquainted with Hold as a client, I knew almost immediately that there was a meeting of the minds in terms of ethos – the company offers impeccable service, communication is professional and thorough, and the company conducts itself with deep integrity. Together it makes this opportunity exceptionally exciting for me.

Our family is in the process of making Aliya. I will be commuting between Johannesburg and Israel, allowing for my clients to benefit from both face-to-face interaction in South Africa and on-the-ground turnkey property management in Israel. Whether a client is looking for real estate as an investment or a home in Israel, the Hold team and I are uniquely positioned to guide them through the entire purchasing process, from finding the right property for their lifestyle and resources through design consultation, financial and legal assistance all the way to post-purchase property maintenance and rental management as required.. I look forward to hearing from potential clients at Julian@localhost
