Lisinfo was founded in 2012 and is a 51% black female-owned company. In 2013, the company embarked on an inner city building conversion near the Maboneng precinct on Commissioner Street, Johannesburg. The warehouse-to-residential conversion on the eastern side of the city culminated in an apartment block comprising 27 modern 2 bedroom and bachelor apartments. The conversion also produced 4 retail units and undercover parking. The conversion project was funded by the Gauteng Partnership Fund and the National Housing Finance Corporation (NHFC) – partners that the Lisinfo family holds in the highest of esteem.
Lisinfo has created five permanent jobs since opening its doors for trading and fully subscribes to the principle of developing young talent. The company has deliberately prioritised the placing of budding entrepreneurs in its retail space and continues to offer reasonable rental rates.
Among Lisinfo’s key strategic objectives is to be a leading provider of quality, safe, secure and clean affordable accommodation in the Johannesburg CBD. We pride ourselves in the quality of the accommodation on offer to our tenants. We are particularly proud to offer affordable accommodation to the low-to-middle income level group of the market and thereby contributing to solving the housing shortage that bedevils the City of Johannesburg. We pride ourselves in a quick turnaround in relation to building maintenance.
Lisinfo is a member of the South African Institute of Black Property Practitioners (SAIBPP).
Lisinfo is positive about the growth of the housing market segment and sees abundant opportunity. The company has it in its objectives expansion into other parts of South Africa.
