Yesterday we at Anna Basson Properties had our annual Agent of the Year function…and what a surprise it was! The function was held at the beautiful Babylonstoren, and although it was pouring with rain, we braved the weather and traversed the beautiful gardens.
It was such an adventure walking through the blooming trees, roses and plants, and experiencing the most wonderful scents that were brought forward by the recent rains.
After walking through the gardens, (and almost getting soaked through by the rain!), we were treated to a bubbly tasting by Gerrit from GM&Ahrens, which was paired with the most colourful and fresh menu from Babylonstoren. We tasted 3 different MCC’s (Method Cap Classic), ranging from extra brut to a little less dry, and experiencing the buttery flavours brought out by the wood.
All the food we ate was made and grown on the Babylonstoren farm itself. The combinations of the different tomatoes, fior de latte (that’s mozzarella for you and me), fruits, charcuterie and preserves are still lingering on our tongues.
We then moved on to the main reason we were there, The Agent of the Year 2019 award. Mari Basson Carstens made a wonderful speech and announced the winner…. drum roll please….. it is Liezl Schoeman! Wow, what a surprise! A well-deserved win. Congratulations Liezl!
The day was rounded off with a lovely light dessert and spending time around the table with our colleagues and friends.
