Pam Golding Properties launches a distinctive lifestyle publication - ‘Imagine’

Imagine magazine cover

Imagine if you could own any home that your heart desires…

Naturally, every individual’s dream home differs, both in composition, size and of course, location. Perhaps you would buy a farm, a castle, or even an island? But one thing we can probably agree on is that our aspirations for that ideal home are inextricably linked to the kind of lifestyle we seek.

The Pam Golding Property group has homed in on these aspirations by offering us a world of possibility with the launch of a distinctive new lifestyle publication, entitled ‘Imagine’.  This is a high quality, luxury title which allows readers to indulge their senses and dreams with insights into the desirable lifestyles of affluent home owners across a range of prime global destinations – from urban and trendy to idyllic, tropical island. Where do the rich and famous really live, what luxury locations do they frequent?

In this inaugural issue, discover where the latest getaway, leisure destinations are situated in Europe and the Indian Ocean Islands, find your iconic escape in a tranquil luxury retreat in the Western Cape, or visit vibrant city life in fashionable Maboneng Precinct in Gauteng – an up and coming ‘hotspot’. Whatever your preference, you can lose yourself in imagining what your life would be like in that one special place – an enclave that even exceeds your expectations. The publication also includes a showcase of appealing homes available to purchase, mainly from around the South Africa as well as overseas.

Comments Dr Andrew Golding, CE of the Pam Golding Property group: “’Imagine’ deals not only with the magical world of property aspirations, it also offers the reader insights and knowledge from experts, and from real people living in their dream homes. It looks at property market trends from around the world, including property investment both locally and abroad. Owning property is all about dreams and imagination, and this beautifully designed magazine brings these to life.”

With a print run of 31 000 and nationally distributed through leading retailers (bagged with Visi magazine with a cover price of R49.95), Imagine is also distributed in the SLOW and SAA international lounges in Johannesburg and Cape Town, Execujet lounges in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Lagos,  as well as through the Pam Golding Properties network of offices and agents.  Imagine is published twice a year by Bespoke Media and edited by Sonya Schoeman.

Adds Dr Golding: “Understanding the importance of online media consumption, we have made the magazine available as a page turner viewable on all devices from desktop to smartphone, and have also translated the full publication into an interactive App available to view on tablet.”

Pam Golding Properties Northcliff invests in the future of UJ student

First-year LLB student Portia Zikalala (middle) receives a laptop to assist in her studies at UJ from Anne Fry, branch manager of Pam Golding Properties (PGP) Northcliff (left) and Nadine Wakefield, Regional Marketing Manager – Gauteng (right).

Pam Golding Properties (PGP) Northcliff recently invested in the future of 19-year-old Portia Zikalala by donating a laptop to assist her in her studies. Portia is currently in her first year of an LLB degree at the University of Johannesburg and has been awarded a bursary by the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).

“Portia is one of the three children of Thelma Zikalala, who has been working as my housekeeper for four years now. She is a very bright girl who studied hard to achieve six Bs and one A in her matric year at Katlehong Technical High School,” notes Anne Fry, branch manager of PGP Northcliff, which covers Randburg and the northwestern suburbs. “Portia’s father was killed when she was just four years old so Thelma had to raise her first two children as a single mother, which is obviously no easy task. We at PGP wanted to ensure that Portia had all the tools she needed to excel in her studies and this is why we donated the laptop.”

Portia is thrilled with her new laptop as it will make it much easier for her to get the distinctions she is aiming for. “The computer labs are always so crowded at the university so it is very difficult to access them. The laptop will prove invaluable in my studies as I am able to use it to download law cases online for my favourite subject, Introduction to Legal Studies. It will also mean that I can type my assignments, which is what the lecturers prefer,” she says.

“I am so grateful to Pam Golding Properties for the computer and I am determined to make them and my family proud,” Portia maintains.
