Although Del-Monte was born in the very small town of Smithfield in the Free State, he grew up in Margate on the Natal South Coast. He was never a surfer boy though, nearly drowning at his first attempt. He much preferred to play rugby on terra firma.
After school, he studied law in Pretoria and obtained his law degree in 1991. After a 12 year career as State Prosecutor with the Department of Justice, and a short stint in sports equipment marketing, Del-Monte joined Zest in August 2006.
When he is not assisting clients with their property related needs, you will find him on his mountain bike in the Dullstroom countryside, or out on the fairways of Highland Gate Golf Estate, which features a championship course designed by Ernie Els. He is also an avid lover and supporter of South African music, and assisted many artists over the years to perform in Dullstroom (one night he even played air guitar with the lead guitarist from Mumford & Sons, at a well-known pub in Dullies…)
Del-Monte still holds the record for the highest value residential property sold in the Village, and also concluded the majority of the sales of vacant stands at Walkersons Private Residential Estate.
If you aspire to country living, then Del-Monte is the person to speak to.
