Conscious Property Alchemy
Pioneering Real Estate
The love for technology, green and renewable energy has led us to create a number of innovative services that are right at the forefront of the property industry. Our own movement – “Conscious Property Alchemy” is a new way of thinking and doing business in real estate by leaving people, environment and the planet in a better state after the property investment or development has taken place.
Typical example of that would be African continent’s first “SkyFarm” – inner city farming – conversion of an existing dilapidated building into vertical farm. It is totally independent of the weather elements and will be producing fresh organic produce for the community 24/7/365. This project not only creates food but also permanent jobs, uplifts the area and educates the community.
Also Maximum Group’s Hybrid/Off-grid model is South Africa’s first all encompassing economically viable services model with attractive returns to investors.
It offers solutions that include solar and gas energy, biomass sewer treatment, water harvesting and treatment, fibre optics and advanced IT infrastructure and waste sorting, treatment and recycling.
Some of the solutions, in addition to the above, can also create up to 500 permanent jobs with in the renewable model of sewer treatment, aquaponics & crops and piggery production. The model not only provides for the developments and its and its residents carbon footprint reduction, but also alleviates the pressure on the local municipalities for providing services.
Our solution offerings include Urban Solar Farms, Water recycling and harvesting, Grey Water and affluent treatment, data and connectivity.
Our business model enables us to provide unique proposition for Urban Solar Farms – we will fund it and set it up without financial input funding necessary from Municipality or end users/offtakers.
The same business model can be applied to Water Treatment and Data and Connectivity.
Triple Net Investment Specialists and Developer

Real Estate Crowdfunding .Co.Za
Africa’s first Commercial Real Estate Crowdfunding platform
Group’s pride and joy – Commercial Real Estate crowdfunding platform – South Africa’s first Commercial and Property development platform offering investors and developers opportunity to invest and/or secure funding. RealEstateCrowdfundingDotCoza is an online platform enabling investors to participate in property investments previously only available to the high net worth individuals. Now smaller investors can own shares in lucrative property opportunities with smaller amounts of money than normally required.
Crowdfunding is a practice of funding a project or a venture by raising funds from a number of individuals, typically via the internet. The concept of crowdfunding, also known as collective fundraising has been done for a long time, e.g. in 1885 in the United States – funds were raised in this manner in order to put up the Statue of Liberty in New York City.
Crowdfunding opens the door for funding without banks and offers opportunities to individuals who previously were not able to participate in these lucrative investments due to the high level
of investment needed.
These in turn shall help create an investment mindset with far reaching effects. Investors can choose properties/developments of their choice knowing that their investment is safe, sound and real.
We list qualified, sound opportunities and those which comply with our strict criteria. This would include reviewing information like title deeds, municipal accounts, zoning, plans, valuations, feasibility studies, financials, town planner and professional reports, etc.
