From Humble Beginnings….

RE/MAX Panache first opened its doors in 1995 in Broadway, Durban North, when husband and wife team Graham and Karen Gavin decided to take their real estate careers to the next level and invest in their first RE/MAX franchise. 

With the South African Real Estate Industry initially rejecting this new American real estate system, early growth was slow, and it took a long time for the brand to get traction in Durban North. However, by 1999, top producing agents in the area started to take notice of this revolutionary brand, and one by one they made the move to the Real Estate Leaders. By 2006 RE/MAX Panache employed 30 agents, and sales were above the R300 Million mark per annum.

It was at this point that Graham and Karen new that they needed to take RE/MAX Panache to the next level, and offered their son Grant the opportunity to buy into the business and run RE/MAX Panache.

Today, RE/MAX Panache is a powerhouse in the North Durban property market, employing over 60 agents, who account for over R1 Billion in property sales per annum.
