I am Engela van Staden

Hi, I am Engela van Staden and for the past 9 years, I have been marketing the unique lifestyle that our vibrant town, Hoedspruit has to offer. I specialise in Wildlife Estates and Farms. When I am not selling I enjoy playing golf, sharing a good bottle of wine and socialising with my friends and family. I am passionate about nature conservation and sustainable training. Get in touch and let’s discuss how I can help you with your property requirements.

I’m a fully qualified agent and successfully completed the Certificate in Estate Agency in 2007 as well as the Professional Practitioner in Real Estate in 2013. In addition to my real estate qualifications I have also completed a Diploma in National Marketing and Sales Management and various short courses. Some of my career highlights include achieving Gold Club status in 2011 and 2012 as well as obtaining the award for Most Improved Office in 2013 and 2014. I mainly focus on sales in Hoedspruit, Raptors View, Leadwood, Lissataba, Balule, Parsons, Klaserie and Timbavati.

I joined the property world in August 2007 with Jordan Properties selling stands and homes on Raptors View, Khaya Ndlovu, Wild Rivers and Leadwood. I joined the Pam Golding team in 2011 to broaden my portfolio and in 2012 I became a partner in the business. I believe I have the best job in the world which takes me into the bush daily. I market from mild to wild on some of the most amazing properties. It gives me great joy to showcase this beautiful region of ours to clients who have a true affinity for the bush.

It is delightful to see how the lifestyle we have on offer, captures the hearts of those that experience it. I want you to know that I am committed to finding you a place that you can call home by carefully listening to your needs. There are few things more rewarding than finding the right home for the right person, it makes my day, every single time! My most notable sales was a vacant piece of land in a Big 5 Reserve to the value of R3.7 million and a breeding farm to the value of R11.5 million. Marketing and sales has always been my passion. I have been active in the marketing industry for the past 29 years, always adapting to new worlds of work strategies, retaining clients and making it my goal to keep them for life through consistent, transparent, honest, upfront dealings and negotiations. Most of my clients become my friends.

We as a family love a game of golf. My husband was Chairman of the Drakensig Golf Club for 10 years and I was Ladies Captain for 6 years, hence it kept us very busy. This year we decided to step down and take things a little easier. We visit the Kruger National Park when we can and enjoy taking photographs of animals, trees and anything beautiful and true. I have been a Ward Committee Member for the past 5 years and enjoy being able to assist where there is help needed. Spending time with family and friends is very important to me, during which time we cook, enjoy a good bottle of wine and talk about anything that is interesting at the time!

“I highly recommend you as an agent and would require you specifically if it comes to finding a new home. Your honesty, sense of client’s needs, expertise and high level of service is hard to find anywhere else. I'm so happy that faith crossed our paths and very happy with the property I ended up with!”

Marcus Garnhed, Sweden

“Moving to South Africa from the United States I was overwhelmed with questions about South African regulations when buying property here. She was super efficient from the first viewing of the property. She was very informative and went out of her way to make sure she could answer all the questions and/or concerns. Engela is a wonderful agent. Thank you for everything.”

Jake Searle, America

“I have known Engela for almost 6 years. Engela is well versed in the law relating to Real Estate and is always on call to answer any questions one might have. Engela is one of those people that can put anyone at ease and her sense of personal morals are of a very high standard. I look forward to many more years alongside her in both a business and a personal capacity.”

Angela Pohl

“When we move to SA we had contacted 3 estate agencies in Hoedspruit but after few mails we decided to deal only with you as you have been the fastest and clearer of the three. When we met, we really appreciated the time you spent with us and the attention to all our matters as you understood that moving from Italy to South Africa was not an easy step. Good job, brava Engela!”
