I am St. Francis Bay
I am the giggles and splashes of Granny’s pool.
I am soft reflections on the waters of the Canal.
I am Flamingos at flight in the estuary.
I am the legend of the green flash at sunset.
I am the towering milkwoods beyond the water.
I am St. Francis Bay Agent, Lois St. Clair Fox.
Hi, I am Lois Fox, Pam Golding Gold Club Agent for the beautiful holiday mecca of St Francis Bay. I schooled and grew up in Durban and the north coast of Natal. After a visit to the area on the way to Cape Town in 1969, my parents bought a plot in the pristine village of Cape St Francis and built a holiday cottage very soon after that. This was our introduction to the area and I have since spent every Christmas on holiday here until 12 years ago when we moved permanently. A personal record of 46 Christmas days in a row! After schooling at Northlands Girls High School in Durban North, I attended the Natal Training College in Pietermaritzburg where I completed a four year Diploma in Teaching.
Although I trained as a teacher, it soon became apparent that marketing and sales was my passion and for a large portion of my working career I was with Canon Office Automation in Durban firstly in direct sales and then for the latter part as Sales Manager and in training and selection of sales staff. I married Neil Fox in 1994 and soon after had two sons Grant and Andrew. We made a decision to relocate here for a lifestyle change and sent our boys to Woodridge College which is one of the best decisions we ever made.
Richard Arderne, the franchise holder in St Francis Bay had planted the seed about joining Pam Golding and for months had encouraged me to join him. I eventually took the plunge and found that there was a place for me in this market and I could continue with my unique style of building relationships with people. I have been very blessed with a successful career in property sales thus far and was proud to be able to make Gold Club from the very first year of sale. In the last six years I have been in the Gold Club elite top 10 in our region for Eastern Cape, Garden Route, Karoo and am on track to achieve Gold Club Status again this year.
This will notch up nine years of Pam Golding Properties Gold Club status in a row. I have been fortunate to conclude a number of big sales, such as a record R11 million on the beachfront, and a number on the canals over R5 million. I focus particularly on the village area, where I have made 20 sales in the last 24 months. I live in Cape St Francis and enjoy the quieter life, finding time to relax, enjoy the water aerobics at Liquid Lines, watch my favourite series on TV as the work load of our business is quite challenging. Each and every deal is important to me no matter what the size or the commission and I find that with this ethos everything falls into place on its own.
