Ilse's passion for the property industry commenced at an early age whilst growing up in a household of a highly successful estate agent. Due to this, she gained years and years of valuable practical experience in the property industry, not only through direct observation, but also due to her hands-on participation and assistance in her parent’s career.

Ilse completed her BA Degree in Communication in 1997 and thereafter broadened her knowledge and skills by completing her LLB Law degree in 2001. Ilse was successfully admitted as an attorney in 2004, conveyancer in 2005 and notary in 2007.

Ilse started practicing for her own account as a Conveyancer in 2005 and thereafter accepted a position at the Centre for Conveyancing Practice in 2006. Her responsibilities during her three years involvement in professional training included the research, development, drafting and presenting of specialised courses in conveyancing - and notarial practice to attorneys, conveyancing staff and property practitioners.

Ilse then continued working towards a position as director in an office of the head of a government department which demanded strategic capacity and project management at strategic level.

She established her own law firm in Wilderness in 2017 known as ILSE PRETORIUS ATTORNEY, CONVEYANCER AND NOTARY, in association with Jordaan van Wyk Attorneys, whom assists her clients with all litigation & commercial matters that fall outside of the property spectrum, including estate planning, drafting of wills and winding up of deceased estates.

Ilse extended her practice by appointing another member to the firm “family”, Lorandi van de Merwe. Lorandi is a practicing Attorney who speaks tech in unadorned language – a rare entity that Lorandi combines with exceptional service and successful results.

Lorandi completed her BCom Degree in Industrial Psychology and Labour Relations in 2012 and further excelled in obtaining her BCom Honours Degree in Labour Relations in 2013. She then decided to widen her knowledge in a field where she could fulfil her dreams and enrolled for and completed her LLB Law Degree in 2018.

After completing her Articles of Clerkship in George in 2019, Lorandi was admitted as an attorney in March 2020. Lorandi joined Ilse Pretorius Attorney in 2020 where she is active in assisting with countless successful property transfers whilst preparing to gain her proficiency in Conveyancing. Lorandi’s zest for life and her natural inclination towards being a “people’s person” reflects her love and enthusiasm of her chosen profession. She is aware that her journey to continuously gain knowledge in the property industry will be a long-running commitment for which she was born to triumph in.

Honesty, integrity and determination to see through tasks to their successful conclusion, and the drive to provide only the best services to each and every client, is some of the core values that the firm share and has led them to be well respected by all persons with whom they interact.

The firm continuously grows from strength to strength as they pride themselves on exceptional service and short turnaround transfer times.



"Ilse is extremely knowledgeable, efficient and dedicated to her work. She definitely goes far beyond what is expected of her in order to achieve the best results for her clients. When I recommend Ilse to my clients, I know that they are in safe hands."


"Ilse goes above and beyond the call of duty with every transaction and registration and is never to busy to make herself available at all times. I look forward to many more years of Ilse's unsurpassed record of service excellence and success."


"As a RE/MAX agent I have always been able to depend on her especially during some very difficult transactions that she has assisted with. I would highly recommend her outstanding service.”


"Thank you so much for your professional dedication the past four years. It is such a pleasure to work with you. You are always available with the best advice and service."
