John Rabie

Chairman

John Rabie, founder of the Rabie Property Group, started developing property in 1978. In the course of the following three and a half decades, he successfully led his company through two major recessions, a change in political dispensation and a global financial melt-down, winning significant national and international awards along the way.

Constantly adapting to changing market conditions, John’s visionary approach has shaped the landscape of Cape Town through his pioneering public-private partnerships and mega-mixed use developments, which include Marconi Beam, Westlake Estate, Royal Ascot, Big Bay and Century City.

In 2012 John embarked on a new chapter in the story of his career by founding South Africa’s first ‘private label’ property company, Signatura, dedicated to re-energising Cape Town’s inner city and existing suburban areas.

“Adding my name, my decades of experience, and my no-compromise dedication to outstanding quality gives buyers the peace of mind that they are purchasing property of the very highest standards of design, construction and finishing.”

Bradley Parker

Director

Bradley started his career in property in 2007, and soon moved into project management, overseeing a number of significant projects, including the construction of Steenberg Virgin Active, Westlake Lifestyle Centre and the Melrose Arch precinct. Since joining Signatura in 2012 he has been involved in all stages of projects, from inception to completion. A major focus has been building good relationships with all team players from professionals, builders, council officials and clients, as well as developing processes, mentoring and the project management team.

“The last 4 years have been incredibly exciting. The Signatura team has such a wealth of experience and who better than John Rabie to have as your mentor! My philosophy has always been that if I treat this business as my own, I can never go wrong. I’m challenged and inspired by my work every single day and excited about building the Signatura brand into the future.”
