Lihle Louella Faas, greatest of all time


Go knock on the door, if the door does not open go through the window, if the window does not open go through the trap door on the roof, if the roof does not open, you blow the door down and say: “I’m here!!”

26 year old Candidate Property Valuer, Lihle Louella Faas developed an early interest in finance and business, having been raised by parents who are among the country’s most successful professionals. Having a finance background she developed a curious mind with regards to Real Estate Development, Asset management and Property valuation. Due to this, whilst completing her Bcom Undergraduate Degree in Finance she decided to take up the course Property Valuation and Management.

In 2014 she received her degree in Bcom Finance from the University of Johannesburg. After graduation she enrolled for her Bcom Finance Honours Degree in Property Valuation and Management at the University of Johannesburg. True to her determined and goal driven spirit she also began working in the challenging field of Management Consulting as a Junior Associate Consultant at a Strategic Advisory firm. Resilient as ever, the struggles of working and studying both full time, did not deter her and she completed her Bcom Finance Honours degree in Property Valuation and Management.
