Ruth62 flies Barrydale flag with pride at Dormehl Property Group Awards

PRETORIA – Ruth Goodman flew the Barrydale flag with pride at the Dormehl Property Group’s Annual Awards Dinner where she claimed no less than five awards.

This prestigious event took place on April 23 at the conference centre and beautifully manicured gardens of the Kievits Kroon Gauteng Wine Estate, situated 10 minutes outside of Pretoria.


Here some of the Dormehl Property Group’s most distinguished agents gathered to celebrate what turned out to be a very fruitful 2021.

For Ruth, however, this event served as a nice way to kick-back and relax for a few days after what was a very productive, and thus successful, 12 months.

Seated at the top table with some of the company’s long time champions Ruth was pleasantly surprised that, apart from being named the Best Agent in the Western Cape, and bagging the prize for achieving the office that achieved the most sales in Western Cape region, she also received a special recognition award.

This award goes to the agent(s) who had received special recognition from a member of the public for his/her professionalism, ethics and honesty.

“I’ve never really been into awards as everyone in this company works really hard and there is a real family centred ethos that we follow, but it does feel great to be acknowledged by my peers,” Ruth said when she returned to her Barrydale base.

“I’m really humbled by these awards and I would like to thank my partner Mark and my friends, family and clients for standing at my side through the many late nights and early mornings.”

From a Barrydale perspective, Ruth has become renowned for her strategy of first selling the village to potential clients before she takes them out to properties.
It should therefore not come as a surprise if she spreads her wings along the picturesque Route 62.

Nationally Ruth is now ranked as Dormehl Property Group’s 16th best agent over all – which is an increadible achivement when considering that the number of properties that she can list is but a drop in the bucket when compared to some of the big cities and towns.

She is ranked fourth nationally for sales of Farms and Smallholdings, but ultimately what matters more to her than these accolades is the fact that she lives in a place where she will, almost daily, bump into a client that made the best decision of their lives by buying in Barrydale.

Special recognition for going the extra (s)mile
