Last month, our Pam Golding agents, Leanne Jamieson and Lambert Bezuidenhout, won a magical trip to New York after being named National Development Agents of the Year at the Pam Golding Properties Gold Club Conference. This honour was given in recognition of their stellar performance at Steyn City – the best in the country.
“Leanne and Lambert’s achievement is remarkable – their first year of sales, since launch in March last year, outperformed property market indicators,” comments Jason Shaw, regional director of Pam Golding Properties. He added that those who bought at launch have already seen growth of 20-30% on their investment, and have achieved excellent rentals.
Shaw isn’t surprised at the demand for Steyn City. To the contrary; he notes that, with developers having invested over R6.5 billion to create infrastructure making for an unsurpassed lifestyle, it’s to be expected.
There’s little doubt that the agents’ task has been made much easier by the existence of excellent infrastructure: since would-be buyers can see and experience for themselves the equestrian centre, tennis courts, children’s play nodes and skate park – not to mention the award-winning clubhouse and Nicklaus-designed 18-hole championship golf course, well-appointed restaurants and deli – they need little persuasion. The Steyn City lifestyle may be the stuff that dreams are made of, but it’s well within reach.
Comments Giuseppe Plumari, CEO Steyn City Properties, “The Pam Golding agents, together with our in-house sales team, have had phenomenal success and we are extremely proud of their first year results. We have listened closely to the market’s demands for a lifestyle characterised by freedom and movement, and we have delivered!”
Steyn City once more went all out to make Mandela Day a special occasion, using its 67 Minutes for Madiba to spread light and love to the children in neighbouring Diepsloot by revamping crèches within the location. The response from all involved at Steyn City, including staff, our local contractors and consultants, was overwhelming.
Our project sponsors, T-Bo Touch, Apex Painters & Renovators, Fidelity, Golf Data, Metrum and Pronto, donated paint, accessories and cash to make the project a success – but it was the incredible team work and camaraderie between all involved that made it a truly special day, as all involved realised that by giving, they had received.
The goodwill and love that emanated from the recipients, Moseka Pre-School and Mashudu Day Care Centre, was tangible.
At the Mashudu Day Care Centre, a few small tin shacks were transformed with vibrant, colourful murals, to brighten the children’s school day. “I am very, very happy, I can see the difference - the crèche is nice and I like it, and I want to thank Steyn City for what they do for me,” said owner Rebecca Mashudu through streaming tears.
She went on to ask if there was any possibility of sponsorship, and her prayers were answered when Kent Gush Properties agreed to adopt her crèche and provide her with items on a monthly basis to help improve the quality of care and learning. We’d like to extend our thanks and appreciation for this generous commitment – it was the cherry on the cake of what was already a phenomenal Madiba Day.
Just around the corner, another team were hard at work at the Moseka Pre-School, painting magnificent murals that have transformed the school into an inviting and creative space.
The thanks we received for our hard work was touching – but it didn’t compare to the deep sense of fulfilment we all experienced for leaving this special legacy for Diepsloot’s children.
Steyn City, in collaboration with Trail Adventure, will be hosting its first fun run on Sunday 14 August. It’s an ideal opportunity to experience the amazing lifestyle on offer at Steyn City Lifestyle Resort as you run through our urban forest. Visit www.steyncityfunrun.co.za to enter online.
Given Steyn City’s commitment to offering our horse-riding enthusiasts the very best service and facilities, the equestrian centre was a fitting location for the very first Masterson Method workshop and seminar.
The Masterson Method is an interactive equine massage and bodywork technique which works deep into the horse’s muscles and tissues, allowing it to release deep-seated pain.
The workshop was held by EarthEco Equine Services on 16 July, with Johan Lotter of the Steyn City Equestrian Centre assisting hosts Masterson Method instructor Chantal Holder and certified practitioner Rob Holder.
