About Us

Who we are

Mills Fitchet was established in 1983 by two remarkable pioneers, Pat Mills and Geoff Fitchet, who had the vision to build a truly professional valuation practice specialising in agricultural valuations based on their experience, professionalism and a deep love of our land.  From sound principals, the firm expanded into the Mills Fitchet Group, an association of highly qualified independent valuers who still uphold these values and who now cover all facets of property valuation.

Our team consists of like-minded individuals focused on continually building our reputation and establishing Mills Fitchet as the valuers of first choice for those serious about their property investments.

As South Africa’s leading independent valuation group, we have a longstanding reputation in the field of real estate valuation and associated consultancy work, and have embraced the changes in our country to build a new generation of valuers who value our land

Social Responsibility

We actively seek to identify and assist previously disadvantaged individuals in the field of property valuation through mentorship programmes, and by forming joint ventures with affirmative business enterprises on larger commissions.

We have a number of promising young individuals on our teams who work under the direct supervision of professional valuers to develop the same values, professionalism and quality of work.

Quality Service

We understand that people and companies that own property assets require valuations that are:

  • Independent – We provide a completely independent perspective and often are called to provide a second opinion or asan expert witness” in settling valuation disputes.

  • Professional – All valuations are handled personally by experienced and highly qualified members of our team.  Each valuer has areas of specialization and experience covering all aspects of valuation and this, coupled with our national footprint and international experience, provides complete peace of mind.

  • Thoroughly researched – All our work is comprehensively researched and project managed to include all critical elements of professional property valuation including legislative changes, market trends and fluctuations.

  • Quick – Our reputation for quick delivery is well recognised within our long and growing list of regular clients.

  • Detailed – We pride ourselves on providing you with detailed and professional reports that can be proudly presented to your Board or Business Partners.

  • Internationally recognised DCF Software – In order to conform with international standards and where required, we are proficient in MRI / Cougar Software.

All the associates place a strong emphasis on research, quality report writing, and the need to conform to international standards.

This ethos is rigidly maintained by a policy of in-house consultation and teamwork. Extensive experience and exposure to expropriation matters, litigation, arbitration and review appraisals, has forged a truly professional and capable team, while new members are groomed to meet the same standards.
