Meet the Executive Team behind OYOB
OYOB are a property development company that provide not only investment and property advice, but also a range of collaborative investment opportunities based on client needs.
The business started as a group of investors with vast experience in their individual fields of Real Estate, Property Development and Architecture who came together to invest in development opportunities, and have grown this into today’s business offering of an end-to-end Property Advisory and Investment service.

Our extensive consultancy services and high level of repeat clientele is testament to the company’s holistic property investment and wealth creation.
Members of the team at OYOB are all investors in the products themselves, whether it be investing in a development, Greenfielding blocks or income producing.
