I am Thesen Island Agent, Svelka Sharp.

Hi, I’m Svelka Sharp and I’ve been working with Pam Golding Properties since August 2014. I specialise in the sales of residential as well as commercial properties on Thesen Islands, Knysna Central and Brenton-on-Sea. When I am not doing that I am on the sports field with my children or enjoying the outdoors with friends; running, cycling and paddling. Get in touch and let’s discuss how I can help you with your property requirements.

I started my Real Estate career in 2010 in Knysna; trained under a great agent who always formed the most amazing relationships with his clients, no matter who they were or where they came from. His theory as an agent was to make every client feel comfortable, make them feel important by communicating at their level whether you are selling a property valued at R500k or a property valued at R10 million.

I did my internship and NQF4 in 2010 and have more recently written my Professional Designation Exam in Real Estate. It is uplifting to work with such a super team! I specialise in sales in the following suburbs of our beautiful town; Brenton-on-Sea, Knysna Central and the very prestigious Thesen Islands. These 3 areas are incredibly different, exceptionally exciting and offer a real range of product.

Thesen Islands is a magnificent security estate, a multi-award winning development that offers a complete lifestyle; beaching, boating, restaurants, peace and tranquillity. From old to young stroll the beautiful tidal islands. Their slogan; eat, stay, play certainly emphasizes the lifestyle of this pristine maritime development.

I studied marketing, advertising and graphic design post school. I worked in the advertising industry for many years however I come from a family of property developers, so there has always been a love for property, hence me eventually changing the direction of my career and going into property sales.

My love of people has stood me in good stead for this exciting industry. Personal relationships are a necessity. Once you form a relationship with someone and they are able to connect with you as an individual; they begin to trust you, it can only make for positive results. To be a great real estate agent you need to be a multitude of things: hard working, reliable, honest, diligent and knowledgeable. With all of that, success comes.

I am a mommy of two amazing kids; life is busy and fulfilled. My love for the outdoors and endurance/extreme sport has taken me to some spectacular places in our country. I love to run and have ran many a Comrades and a Skyrun or two, love to ride a bike - Trans Baviaans, Double Century and 360ne are but to name a few races I have been thrilled to take part in, and to paddle. Wow, Knysna doesn’t get better as an outdoor playground!

“We were looking for a property that suited our needs for our Knysna office plus accommodation for one of our staff members and family. Svelka sourced us the perfect property in the area of our choice and did all that she could to ensure the transaction went smoothly.”


“Svelka dealt with the sale of our property. She was reliable and totally committed to making the sale happen for all parties. We enjoyed working with her and will give her our business without fail next time.”


“We needed commercial space to open a new business in town. We purchased and were extremely happy with the openness, honesty and service we got from Svelka and Pam Golding Properties.”
