About Neville Berkowitz

45-year background as an entrepreneur and adviser, locally and globally.

I established Neville Berkowitz and Associates, Consulting Real Estate Economists, in 1977. I have over 45 years of experience in various real estate specialities, locally and globally, across numerous industries.

Future-proofing assessments of tenants’ businesses are integral to real estate investment and development.

As an investor, developer, and adviser to investors and developers across the spectrum from individuals to Institutions, I have investigated, assessed, and, when called upon, advised on future-proofing all types and sizes of tenants in industries across economies.

Before I retired from the global stage due to family commitments, Neville Berkowitz Global Associates operated in 17 countries on five continents from 1992-2007. My Global Associates were project specific.

Among our projects, during 2001-2007, we created, ResearchWorldwide.com. This website became a Google No. 1 ranked global commercial real estate research information portal.

I have specialized in research and forecasting as a local and global real estate economist, strategist, and advisor; institutional investment and development advisor; negotiator; developer; investor; entrepreneur; business advisor; and future-proofing expert.

I have suitably experienced Associates as part of my Future Proofing Team.

I was a pioneer in real estate economics in South Africa. Being an independent and unbiased real estate economic commentator during 1980-1995, I was continually the ‘go-to’ expert used by the print, online, radio, and TV media. This consistent exposure developed my reputation as the No.1 Thought Leader in real estate in South Africa.

I stepped down from this unbiased and independent commentator role when I became a developer in 1995 and the real estate investment adviser and investment portfolio developer to what was then South Africa’s third-largest pension fund.
Future-proofing assessments of tenants in the investment portfolio was an essential part of this function.

I am an author and publisher. I wrote and published over 100 unbiased and independent real estate investment journals, The Property Economist, from 1980 to 1995. A large client base was developed of individuals, small business owners, corporates, institutions, and government.

In 1983, at 31, I was appointed by the Building Industry Federation of South Africa (BIFSA) to the Building Advisory Committee, reporting to The Office of the Prime Minister of South Africa.

I have written 40 quarterly reports- Economic Review of South Africa and Manufacturing Review of South Africa co-published by a major national financial magazine.

I have written and published 23 free books found on my website, personalempowerment.co, which has a Facebook following of over 1.2 million.

My free book, How to Live in the Now, has a 4.3 out of 5 rating on Amazon.com from 138 Reviewers by March 2023.

Here is a free copy of How to be a Great Negotiator, which I initially wrote in 2013 for my son, Jonathan, then aged 20. I am a proud father of a highly successful son in business and as a “mensch”. Check out the market leaders in mobile marketing and advertising motionads.co.za

Using my experience of becoming the No.1 Thought Leader in real estate during 1980-1995, Jonathan and I launched WikiNotables.com in 2021. This advisory service focuses on developing No.1 Thought Leaders in their fields.

In April 2023, I launched a YouTube channel, Wise Owl Adviser, to begin sharing video excerpts of the knowledge and wisdom contained within my 30 free books on my websites, personalempowerment.co. and guidespeak.com.

A personal consultation service- WiseOwlAdviser.com, provides one-to-one advice on developing personal empowerment, managing work-related issues, business survival and prosperity, and financial and investment guidance.

At 70, I felt a calling to come out of semi-retirement to assist the most vital cog of any economy- small businesses- ensuring their survival and prosperity in the stormy times ahead through Future Proofing their businesses – SmallBusinessProsperity.com.

I believe it is better to light one candle than curse the darkness.
