About Pennywise


Penny Gurney is the founder, proprietor and principal estate agent of PENNYWISE. A UCT graduate, Penny is a natural entrepreneur who has almost always run her own business. Her many years' experience in the fields of hospitality and clothing design have given her an eye for detail and a passion for customer service that have served her well in her move into the property industry. After several years "learning the ropes" in larger agencies, Penny felt the need to offer her clients a more flexible approach to buying and selling their properties. Unconfined by the rigid rules of the formal agencies (but always abiding by the Estate Agents' Code of Conduct), Penny will always be prepared to assess a situation on its own merits and strike the perfect compromise to make the deal come together. Operating as an independent agent means that Penny is not confined to a particular geographical area, and can to continue to service and protect the interests of her loyal clients even when they move to another suburb, or even another town.

Penny lives in the historic & academic suburb of Rondebosch . also the vibey student hub of Cape Town - in the shadow of UCT (her Alma Mater), with her two sons, Great Danes & other pets.
