The trio was also awarded as the top three Estate agents with the highest volume of transactions and was recognised for submitting Loan Business of between N$10 and N$15 Million and above to Bank Windhoek. The recognition was a memorable achievement for Paulus since she won the same award in 2019.
Bank Windhoek's Executive Officer of Retail Banking Services and Specialist Finance, James Chapman, congratulated the winners and said: “Despite the economic difficulties, we are here to celebrate your achievements," said Chapman.
He added that owning and investing in a home is the most significant investment in life. “At Bank Windhoek, we see ourselves as a partner for growth and a connector of positive change, and even during the pandemic, we launched a new home loan product, the 360 months home loan creation, which extends home loans to 30 years, catering for home loans of between five hundred thousand and two million Namibian dollars," he said. “The loan, which customers can settle earlier without any restrictions, allows our customers to get into the home loan space. Thanks for banking with us and choosing Bank Windhoek as a partner of choice," said Chapman.
