Tony Bales (B.Com, Dip Fin Man)
Having started his property career at Old Mutual properties in 1990 as a Property Investment Analyst, Tony was responsible for all the property purchases and sales of investment properties. He acquired vast experience as he moved around the country which ultimately earned him the responsibility for the entire sales and new investments in Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal: in 1994 this was over R1bn.
Tony headed back to Cape Town where he joined Marriot Property Services. Subsequently, he became a director responsible for some of the largest commercial broking deals; this includes the sale of the ex-BP Centre in Cape Town CBD, in one of the first ever commercial transaction to foreigners.
After the interest rates hit a staggering 25,5% in 1998, Tony headed back to the safer haven of Old Mutual Properties where he asset managed a Southern African property portfolio of an estimated R4bn. Tony’s additional responsibilities were procuring new business for the restructured property division. This gave him a massive international exposure to most of the world’s major commercial property players on various continents.
After a few more adventures which include eight months in Dubai, BOE (Manager, Property Finance) and Century City (Nedbank), Tony decided that he wanted to use his varied experience to his benefit. Finally, this gave birth to Epping Property; his own company that he runs.
Epping Property, under the capable hands of Tony, continues to be an award-winning market leading industrial property brokerage. Tony and his wife, Shirley, have two sons.
After completing his management training with Clicks and achieving a sales Diploma from Cape Town Technikon and managing various stores around the Western Cape, he decided to travel. Here, he got involved in the hospitality trade with the Whitebread Group in the UK. Finally, after some management stints in famous pubs in the UK, John came home to further his hospitality career.
In addition, John then attained prominent management positions at quality establishments including Quay 4 and The Ambassador Hotel in Bantry Bay. At this time, John started a family and decided to leave the hospitality industry to spend more quality time with his new family.
Finally, property… This led John to enter the real estate industry where he joined Rattle Walton in Hout Bay, the only family-owned and independent real estate company in the area at that time. It was the most successful business in the area, which counted for at least 50% of the sales against all the major national companies year on year.
Finally, in 2012, John left the residential real estate industry to join Epping Property, where he settled into the industrial property trade very well. Since then, he has fostered significant relationships with all the leading, national landlords, tenants, and investors.
John and his wife, Michele, have two boys.
