About Us

Our Principal, Dries Barnard of Dries Barnard Properties, has successfully completed the latest NQF5 requirements for Principal Estate Agents, an achievement not many Estate Agent Principals can put claim to. This qualification is highly recommended for a prospective client to know they are receiving the absolute best possible service from their Agent who must be knowledgeable and qualified to do so! More than 17 years ago, Dries bought his first farm in Montagu. Since then, by way of buying and selling, he has ended up with his dream farm, tucked away in the beautiful Montagu mountains! Sounds divine? Please read on!! This recipe for success is only possible in an active real estate market of which Montagu has been a part of for some time.

To find a suitable property, you need an honest, reliable and knowledgeable sales agent. Our successes speak for themselves, not only do we sell more farms than any other Estate Agent in the area, we also succeeded in two "Magnabs". A "Magnab" is a term used when an Estate Agent sells three neighboring farms, to different purchasers! Therefore, we believe when buying or selling farm property, our Estate Agency is the one to choose. Dries Barnard Properties specializes in farm and country estates, commercial properties and businesses.
The wide selection of farm properties and businesses around Montagu can be seen on our website.


There are a number of beautiful small farms for sale in the Montagu, Robertson and Bonnievale areas, some with infrastructure, some operational entities and even undeveloped mountain farms. Being a farmer since 1986, Dries has extensive experience in farming with cattle, goats, sheep, free range animals, horses and even game. Dries is currently farming under organic conditions, using no hormones or chemicals, producing for example lucern, nuts, fruit, veggies and other crops.

From decades of experience in this field, Dries offers qualified contacts for water divining, fencing, drilling boreholes, earth moving, making roads, water testing and very important, alternative energy resources, solar pumped and inexpensive gravity fed irrigation - a must for the current electricity prices!

In fact, Dries has knowledge and contacts throughout the whole spectrum of farming requirements. We offer a comprehensive quality service to our Purchasers not only before, but especially after the sale has been concluded, by arranging different services e.g. drilling boreholes, fencing and earth moving etc. We are also qualified Auctioneers, trained by the S.A. College of Auctioneering, a member of S.A.I.A and N.A.A.


The Region

The Little Karoo towns of Montagu, Robertson and Bonnievale are friendly, peaceful hamlets surrounded by mountains and an unspoilt wilderness of indigenous fynbos with pristine hiking trails and endless skies for stargazing and bird watching. Farm properties in Montagu offer from beautiful, secluded valleys, fed by natural springs and fountains to mountains with proteas, aloes and the distant cry of Fish Eagles! The climate and fertile soil in the area provides favorable conditions for growing olives, nuts, fruit, vineyards, figs, herbs, etc.

Montagu is one of the historic towns on the popular R62 wine route, being a weekend destination for many South Africans and overseas visitors, where scenic 4x4 routes, rock climbing, hot springs, and a big 5 eco tourist camp are all on your doorstep. Farm properties in this region are ideal as weekend retreats and are suitable for the development of private game and hunting lodges. A place to return to and for some, to never leave!
