About Us

HODGSON focuses on Residential and Commercial - Sales and Letting. We aim to bring a fresh approach to real estate, making your property transactions simpler and faster, providing you with a personal and professional service!


Our hope is that, you will identify with the Personal and Professional brand that we have created and engage with us to find that property or investment which best suits you or on the flip side, to assist you in selling your property.


Recent years have seen the transformation of the real estate industry into a profession requiring a better knowledge of property law, mortgage finance, and national accreditation which requires dedication and commitment from its agents. We embrace this change and look forward to continually challenging ourselves to think about how we can create products and services that fit neatly into your life.


Dean Hodgson is our Principal Agent. He started his real estate career in 1998 in Durban, SA and has gained a vast amount of experience and insight into the industry over the years. He was fortunate enough to have been mentored by one of Durban's and South Africa's top Estate Agents. His great track record and passion for the business led to him branching out on his own and starting HODGSON, with his wife Kirsty.



Dean comments:


“I have always had a passion for people and property - even more so by growing up with it. It is in my blood.  Over the years I have learnt that hard work pays off but working smartly can be just as, or even more rewarding. The world is becoming a smaller place to do business and keeping your head in the sky and your feet on the ground, can really take you and the people around you places!  My business has grown by way of a strong referral database from those clients who have done business with me. "



HODGSON is based in Ballito and the decision to initially focus our attention here and on the KwaZulu Natal North Coast has been as a result of the tremendous growth this area has experienced in past years. With its own schools, hospital, major shopping centres and the King Shaka International Airport, there has been an influx of businesses, residents and tourists to the area. Luxury developments such as Zimbali, Zimbali Lakes, Simbithi, and Palm Lakes are indicative of the affluence and “laid back / quality lifestyle” here.  All the ingredients are there for major growth for those who have already invested here and those who still wish to do so. We look forward to partnering with you and providing you with the quality service which you deserve
