Rali Mampeule (37) is one of the few black real estate entrepreneurs making a difference in the property landscape. 

Mampeule is the founder of Phadima Group Holdings and has over 15 years’ experience in the real estate industry.

Over the past five years, Mampeule diversified into an integrated real estate services, ranging from property funding and development, assets and facilities management, leasing, private property funding commercial and residential properties.

However, his success did not come overnight. His story is from rags- to-riches success story of all time. In 2000, he started as a self-employed street roadside hawker, selling boerewors rolls on the streets of Midrand, while studying for his Bachelor of Commerce (Bcom) with University of South Africa (Unisa). It was then that he was recruited by a property mogul from Chas Everitt International Property Group to work as an assistant real estate agent in Bryanston, north of Johannesburg.

Four years later, he opened his own Chas Everitt International franchise based in Midrand and since then he has never looked back. He describes it as: “The heart art of dreaming big and entrepreneurship.”

Although he might be a successful property guru, but he had his difficulties and challenges as a black person that is mostly white dominated.

However, after surviving all the odds, this has helped him to give back to South African community.

In 2005, he initiated Rali Mampeule Learnership Programme (RML).
His foundation offers scholarships to study the professional real estate course (NQF Level 4) to promising individuals from previously disadvantaged communities and continue to mentor them while working in the field of real estate.

His purpose was to fast track the entry of young black people into the real estate industry. “Bringing new blood into the old vein.” It has always been his dream to change young black people lives and open a window of opportunity for them.  He has since achieved that. So far, the foundation had trained almost 100 estate agents and created few real estate company owners in the last ten years.

Recently he donated at least R250K to ten matriculants from his church in the Daveyton, Ekurhuleni, to pursue their studies.

He can be heard on radio and be seen on TV providing advices on property investments and champions the cause of black business ownership.

“To me success means changing people’s lives and making their dreams come true,” he says.
