About Rosh Pinah Properties (Pty) Ltd
Established in early 2015, Rosh Pinah Properties (Pty) Ltd is a niche player in South Africa’s commercial property market. Combining the unique strengths of two remarkable women – Patricia Potgieter and René Styber – each having made their mark on the growth and development of major property investments in Gauteng and beyond, Rosh Pinah Properties provides a real force in the market for property investments.

Rosh Pinah Properties is particularly skilled in bringing together partners able to negotiate the sale, planning and development of turnkey commercial projects.
