In the beginning

Betsie Strydom founded Karis Properties with a small home office and a BIG dream. Today Karis Properties is a prominent and successful Real Estate Company. Betsie built Karis Properties on personal relationships, exceptional service and the ethos to continually exceed client expectations. Her belief in conducting business with honesty, integrity and respect and to grow through creativity and innovation has proven to be a winning recipe.

It’s all in the name

At Karis, we believe that a home and relationship should be filled with grace, kindness, and love. Having each other’s back and looking out for one another should be a human decency we show everyone, not just our colleagues, clients, and family.

That’s why we chose the name Karis – a word that means grace and kindness. It’s a daily reminder that in the good times and the bad times, we should find the joy in life, treat people with love, and always remember to be gracious and kind.

That is what you’ll find if you choose us to build a property relationship with.

Our Fundamentals

Personal Growth

Most people will admit that whatever lifestyle they’ve settled for, they want more. They want to wake up every day knowing that there are other opportunities out there, that they still haven’t reached their full potential. Our Property Professionals are not yet done. The human desire for growth is perhaps manifested most in the realm of our Property Professional’s careers.


Our Team cares about our clients, stakeholders as well as each other. Therefore we implore all employees to work with the highest code of conduct to ensure all clients are treated in an exceptional manner.


Studies have shown that workers who have fun at work are happier and more productive. They're also more loyal to their employer. Therefore fun is an absolute must!

Entrepreneurial empowerment

As Property Professionals the goal is not to enrich the Company but to provide for ourselves. We unite the finest talents and encourage an entrepreneurial team spirit to attain our strategic goals. Everyone's ideas count and we pride ourselves in our cultivation.


We are firm believers in training to optimize our work experience as well as our client service. We have regular team building events, as every employee forms part of our Company as a whole and everyone needs to know how and where they fit into our dynamic team.

Awards and Achievements

It is always rewarding when one’s hard work is acknowledged by the industry. Being awarded by BUILD Real Estate & Property Awards in 2019 as the Best Independent Real Estate Agency in Pretoria, will always be a special milestone.

BUILD magazine is the only globally focused free-to-subscribe construction magazine and forms part of UK based AI Global Media’s portfolio. Their annual awards focus on various sectors within the real estate and property industry in various countries. Firms and individuals are nominated for awards and the nominated participants are fully researched by an experienced team. This panel of 5 impartial industry experts then also decides who wins in their category rather than an uncontrolled, popular vote.

Another milestone was being invited to make a television appearance on Vat Jou Goed En Trek in 2018 (Season 4, Episode 7) where we aided in renovating one participant’s home. It was a fun, scary exhilarating and rewarding experience and we will always be grateful for the exposure gained.
