Trevor Richardson receives SAIV Life Award

“The Life Award is the highest accolade that the South African Institute of Valuers (SAIV) can bestow upon a member and it is my honour and privilege to bestow a Life Award to the most deserving person, Trevor Richardson,” this is what SAIV President, Tracey Myers had to say at the KZN Branch Country Seminar.

Tracey states that Trevor has shown such passion, commitment and sacrifice for the Institute over the past 15 years served on the branch executive and his 10 years on Natex.

“As a Past President from 2012 to 2014 and the first President I had the honour of serving under, you certainly set the standard for me and I will always strive to meet the bar that you set,” she continued. Trevor’s ethics, kindness and ability to get to the heart of any problem and provide workable solutions is incredible. He has the amazing ability to listen and hear what everybody has to say, consider their point and then summarise the input without offending the participant. His comments are always relevant and insightful.

In the many years of his involvement in the profession, Trevor has acquired a multitude of qualifications and experience. He has also been a member of the following organisations:

  • Fellow of the SA Institute of Valuers
  • Association of South African Quantity Surveyors
  • South African Council for Quantity Surveyors
  • South African Council for the Property Valuers Profession
  • Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors
  • South African Property Owners Association

In addition, Trevor has spent 18 years in the Property Management and Valuations industry and has 20 years Quantity Surveying experience. He founded his own company, ACRES in 2007 and has contributed materially to the maintenance of valuation and quantity surveying standards across South Africa with lectureships at University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) and South African Property Owners Association (SAPOA).

Trevor was also an advisor to the Honourable MEC regarding the implementation of the Municipal Property Rates Act and is considered an expert witness in the High Court regarding valuation and quantity surveying matters.

“Trevor, thank you for all that you have done for the Institute over the many years and this award just goes a small way to acknowledge your efforts,” concluded Tracey Myers.
