Roper and Associates originally formed in January 1990 with the vision of one man, Robert Roper to see the company being established as a leader in Kwazulu Natal, the surrounding areas, and throughout South Africa by delivering a reliable and specialized Professional service.

These skills have been obtained over 25 years of this valuation practice being in existence and tested in the market place on an ongoing basis by way of our motivated reports which, notwithstanding being given only to the paying client, are in some cases circulated to numerous parties who have vested interests either for collateral purposes or dispute settlements. We have established and maintained a mutually beneficial and strong relationship with our clients throughout the years, with some dating back to the very beginnings of our business in 1990.

Robert Roper built the company through hard work, dedication and motivation through the years together with his business partners Nicolette Sargent, Dhiresh Gunpath, Joslynn Rungasamy and Kedusha Ramnarian.
