The study involved engagements with various stakeholders from government, the private sector, NGO’s and community based organizations.

Since leaving Pam Golding Properties Shaheen has had successful appointments in Property Management and Property Asset Management at the City of Cape Town, the Western Cape Government and the Communicare non-profit organisation. During all this time he and I have kept in contact, and I have followed his career with interest – he now has a very broad base of property knowledge, expertise and experience. He is a person of the highest integrity, and sets the highest standards for himself. He has an engaging personality and is also fun to be with and to work with. He is diligent and conscientious, and has a great aptitude and instinct for property. Shaheen and I are also working together as part of an advisory team to the Cape Town Drug Counselling Centre (CTDCC), assisting them on assessing their development options for their site. I confidently recommend Shaheen and his company Wingapo with regards a property-related investment, development, consulting, marketing or management project.”

The last few months has been truly enlightening to us all at CTDCC.

Your advice and guidance has been invaluable to us.
 
As director, I am particularly thankful for the countless times you’ve stepped forward in several engagements to represent the CTDCC and done so in a manner that no rand value could have possibly bought us. We would like to express our vote of appreciation to yourself and your company for the service you have made available to us and appreciate that you are still journeying with us on this investment opportunity.”

Ashley Potts – CEO CTDCC
