The Westacre Devco is a family business which has over the past 15 years built up an outstanding reputation for excellence having won the NHBRC (National Home Builders Registration Council) Western Cape Regional Builder of the Year 2004 award and come second nationally in the same year.
With more than 20 security gated villages completed to date and over 700 satisfied purchasers a Westacre gated village has become synonymous with a sound asset where your family is as safe as your investment.
The Westacre Group has it’s origin in a dynamic property development company started in the Northern Province 35 years ago. In 1980 this company, rated amongst the top five Development/Contracting companies in the then Northern Transvaal, was an employer of in excess 400 people and had built up a substantial investment property portfolio which included shopping centres, factories and apartment blocks.
In 1987 the majority shareholder and MD, Okkie Potgieter, sold out to the Goldenstein Group and relocated to Somerset West anticipating semi-retirement. However this was not to be. Instead, he started Westacre and continued doing what he knew best – property developing and marketing.
Westacre Group is a family business which over the last 15 years has built up an outstanding reputation for excellence having won the NHBRC (National Home Builders Registration Council) Western Cape Regional Builder of the Year 2004 award and come second nationally in that same year, and has become one of the most, if not the most successful privately owned property developers and marketers in the Helderberg. With more than 25 developments to its credit including residential estates, factory complexes and shopping centres, Westacre was the pioneer of the security village in Somerset West with many other developers following once the demand had been created.
Only now has Okkie Potgieter been able to hand over the reins to Johann and Dion Potgieter, his son-in-law and son respectively, to pursue his interest in classic Mercedes Benz cars.
