Mariël Burger

Hi, I’m Mariël Burger, Branch Manager for the Welgemoed & Durbanville areas at Pam Golding Properties. 


My journey in real estate has been an unconventional one. While studying Dutch abroad in the early 2000’s I worked as an Assistant Buyer for the Dutch luxury retail brand, De Bijenkorf. This was my first encounter with refined luxury lifestyle living- and it’s where my passion for real estate stems from. After my time in the Netherlands, I was offered an opportunity in real estate sales - and jumped. 


Initially, my career started within a small family-owned agency and later a medium-size national agency. In 2007, I was fortunate enough to join the Pam Golding Property Group, specialising in sectional title and new developments in the City Bowl & Central Business District. From there I moved on in 2014 to specialise in luxury residential properties and developments on the Atlantic Seaboard and in 2022 started as Branch Manager for the Welgemoed and Durbanville areas.


Decades of experience and a strong work ethic have seen me achieve, first GoldClub, and then Emerald Circle status since I first joined Pam Golding Properties in 2007, which I’ve proudly retained ever since. But client and work-team relationships remain my first priority. I like to really listen to people, to fully understand their wants and needs and I am passionate about growing and developing others I work with. Working for Pam Golding Properties has allowed me to continue my passion for finding our family of clients their ideal investment property or place they can call home.


I believe that the sense of being at home, the feeling of being in a beautiful space that nurtures you, shouldn’t stop when you step out of your front door. And living this Cape coastal and Winelands lifestyle has made me fall even more in love with my ‘hood’, and now I get to enjoy it every day.

Live Remarkable.

“Mariel, renewed our faith in estate agents! After taking 3 months to sell our first place, dealing with show houses every Sunday, and agents that just did not live up to their promises, Mariel sold our 2nd place in a week. Superb, honest service from beginning to end, he was always flexible and accommodating, and made a seemingly complicated process so painless.”

- Sue McLagen

“From the moment we first made contact with Mariel, he was super friendly, helpful and highly professional, answering all the myriad questions we had as foreign clients buying our first property in South Africa. Upfront, honest, informed and well connected, Mariel was a real pleasure to work with from start to finish. ”

“Mariel has a professional attitude and "attention to detail" approach to real estate which is why he has achieved Emerald Circle. We briefed Mariel to assist us in purchasing a property in Cape Town and from the minute we started our search, we felt supported and understood. We bought our property unseen and this was totally due to Mariel’s advice, guidance, and constant attention. Mariel’s approach is clear, decisive, and never forceful and we felt as though he was working solely with us on achieving our dream. Mariel is a highly intelligent, respected Estate Agent who takes his work very seriously, and the professional people he introduced to us we found to be similarly professional and unique in their services. They are a very commendable team and we salute their efforts and commitment.”

- Annie and Jamie Graham
