About Vision.

Vision Group of Companies was established in 2000 with only 3 staff members at the time.

Who We Are

Over the years, our brokerage has grown to be an award winning organization with over 30 employees. Our offices are located in the beautiful Tyger Waterfront in Bellville. Over time many things have changed, but our success recipe remained the same; we believe that our business is one of relations of which professional expert advice is the cornerstone. This is backed by experienced well trained staff and the utilization of the most modern technological systems available.

We firmly believe in the following saying:

“A customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so.” Mahatma Gandhi
