The Chas Everitt International property group was the dream-child of founders Charles (Chas) and Tilla Everitt who started the company in 1980 and remain active in the Chas Everitt group and the real estate industry to this day.
Chas Everitt Milestones
Opening their first office in Randburg, Gauteng in 1980, Charles and Tilla founded what has over the years evolved in the Chas Everitt International Property Group, a true family business where ethics and values are an integral part of the company's DNA.
In their own words: "Our vision has always been to never stop caring about people and to never compromise our principles".
