About Us

Non Resident Property Consultancy

Excellence since 2008

Non Res SA was founded in 2008 after establishing a need for a specialised consultancy aimed at assisting Non Resident property investors. With a booming property market, favourable weather and a good exchange rate for the international property buyer, South Africa is a dream come true. However, the question most asked by Non Residents is if monies are brought in to purchase property, can they be easily taken out again? The need for a specialised company became apparent with various rules and regulations pertaining to the introduction and repatriation of funds.

Since our formation, we have gone from strength to strength owing to our client-focused approach and desire to offer the most up-to-date and extensive information possible. Our team has 50+ years of combined experience in the property, law and banking sectors giving us unique insights into the best options for each client’s needs.

As our business has grown, we have expanded our service offering to assist South Africans who are seeking out a change of lifestyle abroad. From day one we have worked to create a strong network with other industry-related professionals, enabling a “one-stop shop” approach for our clients.

This year, 2023, we celebrate our 15th anniversary attesting to our longevity and continued commitment in providing quality services in the property sector.

Jo Williams

Jo Williams

Jo co-founded Non Res SA after leaving her previous role at one of South Africa’s top law firms. With many clients not knowing how to repatriate funds out of South Africa, Jo saw the need to establish a specialized company to assist them.

Having worked for nearly 4 decades in the legal profession in varying roles, her vast property and legal knowledge along with experience navigating SA Reserve Bank regulations, has enabled her to offer extensive advice for foreign property investors.

Over the years Jo has built long lasting partnerships with attorneys, banks, estate agents and more to assist our client base to the best of her ability.
