Petrus is a Real Estate Agent and Team Lead at The Petrus Group with Sotheby’s International Realty – Canada and was a Conveyancing Attorney in South Africa.


With over 25 years of property experience, one could say that he is ideally suited to help in advising on all property matters when it comes to leasing or buying a property. In Canada, prospective tenants and buyers have representation from a Real Estate Agent, at no cost, which makes it vastly different from South Africa where buyers and tenants are not represented and have to approach the seller’s or landlord’s agent.

Petrus is passionate about advising fellow South Africans through the process of finding their ideal Canadian home and being the ‘agent of choice’ when it comes to negotiating on their behalf.
