The Business Exchange is pleased to welcome a new tenant, Choprop, to its prestigious address centrally located in Sandton.
Choprop is an international award-winning and South African-based real estate group specialising in marketing and developing exclusive property investments within the emerging and mainstream markets, in some of the country’s most desirable locations.
The Choprop Group, founded by local entrepreneurs Yusuf & Shazia Essa, has had an extremely successful history since its inception in 2007.
Yusuf, popularly known as “Choppee”, started his business career as a hotdog vendor on the corner outside the local café in his hometown of Laudium in Pretoria. Shazia, his wife and a Physiotherapist by profession, started her career as an estate agent intern with a local estate agency in 2006.
Shazia joined her husband at Choprop in 2007 after the couple decided to take their Sunday afternoon house-hunting pastime to a new level. This small home business soon grew from strength to strength and has now become a familiar name in the South African property market.
