Sales & Marketing
SLM Developments is acutely aware that studies have shown that more effective sales results are achieved when setting up a designated sales company solely focused on selling the properties within a specific development. It is for this reason that a committed sales team with relevant experience, product knowledge and the appropriate levels of expertise in development sales has been formulated.
Additionally, SLM believes that marketing is the backbone of any effective sales solution and adequate, effective and intelligent marketing is always a major driver in the success of any development. In this regard, a leading property and development marketing company, ADLAB Advertising, has been appointed to work with SLM Developments in order to formulate a purpose-driven and tailor-made marketing strategy.
ADLAB Advertising has previously been voted best development marketing company in South Africa in 2016/17 and has a solid track record in the field of marketing residential property developments. MD of ADLAB, Claudius Combrinck, adds a wealth of expertise to SLM Sales and Marketing (Pty) Ltd by having close to 20 years of experience in the property development industry.

Residential Fund Management
SLM Developments offers the fund management structure to provide the day-to-day management of the various Residential Long-term Funds (LTF’s). The LTF’s are created to provide a long-term income yield and capital growth property portfolio of mainly residential, but also retail, educational and commercial assets. This proves to be an attractive asset class, as the market generally struggle to find adequate mortgage finance from banks, but can afford to pay market-related rentals.
