We are a multi-solution industrial and commerical property brokerage for businesses across South Africa.

Warehouse Finder and OfficeBook operate as two separate entities within the same company, each specialising in two distinct business areas, namely Industrial and Commercial Property. As multi-specialists in sales, leasing and development in the industrial and commercial property sectors, we are uniquely positioned to address all of our client's property needs.

Founded in 2011 with head offices in Bryanston, Johannesburg, the company has since extended its footprint to a number of strategically located business hubs that service major metropolitan areas in Cape Town, Durban and Pretoria. Most recently, the company has expanded even further afield into the previously-deemed remote areas of Nelspruit and Pietermaritzburg. This puts us in the unique position of being the only truly national commercial and industrial property brokerage in South Africa.

We make it our business to find the perfect space for yours

As a leading full-service commercial and industrial property company, we offer a varied yet focused range of services for corporate and private investors. Our highly-skilled and dedicated national team leverages their wealth of knowledge and experience to provide personalised solutions that support, develop and implement any commercial and/or industrial property strategies our clients may require.
