Meet our Property Rental Services Manager, Daniel Bower.
Danny joined us in October 2013, having previously served as an ordained minister for some twenty years. A Pretoria native, Danny has now lived in Cape Town for 12 years and, having retired from the Ministry, he was keen to continue working in a people-focused environment.
In developing the Engel & Völkers Cape Town Rental Management team, Danny has used his considerable people skills, energy and commitment to create a unique service, one, notably, which is not offered by other real estate companies.
Becoming a landlord can present certain challenges, particularly for those owners living some distance from their property, and in many cases, overseas. Engaging Danny and the team to manage the property and deal with any and all issues that arise provides crucial peace of mind and consistency; after all, your property is likely your most valuable asset.
Our fully managed service entails the following:
All maintenance issues resolved in a timeous manner using specialist companies
Owners informed in writing of the need for maintenance, and quotes obtained and forwarded
Property checked as per the owner’s requirements
Contact made and maintained with service providers
Any vehicle on the property serviced as per requirements
All appliances and equipment maintained in good working order
Various duties carried out as per Landlord’s request
Attend and act on behalf of the Landlord at Body Corporate meetings
Our Rental Management package, hitherto offered specifically to Landlords, has been so successful that we now have increasing numbers of tenants engaging our services directly, in order to facilitate issues being resolved as quickly and easily as possible.
It is worth remembering also that you do not need to be a Landlord or a Tenant to avail yourself of this accomplished service. If you simply own a property which is vacant, the peace of mind that comes from having someone like Danny available a phone call away, ready to call on his network of specialists to provide swift resolution to problems that may arise, cannot be underestimated.
Testimonials from satisfied clients speak volumes. Here are just a few...
I was more than satisfied with the service and convenience. My apartment had a few issues that Daniel and the Engel & Völkers team fixed for me within a day and the apartment looks immaculate. I would not hesitate to use them again. They are very professional and efficient.
We recommend the services of Engel & Völkers, Cape Town, and especially Daniel Bower, who manages our property and tenants for us. We started using Engel & Völkers around a year ago when they found a tenant for our property. Daniel does an excellent job and we will definitely recommend his services.

I can highly recommend Daniel Bower. His work ethic and service has been incredible. I will most certainly get him to manage any further properties that I purchase in the CBD.
Commission rates are negotiable and dependent upon a number of factors; for example, if Engel & Völkers has procured the tenant for you initially, this reflects favourably in the rate payable for our Management Services.
For further information on the range of rental packages available, and for answers to any queries you may have, please do not hesitate to contact Danny.
