Samantha Pillay

I am Samantha Pillay

I have been living and working with my husband and three kids in the Middle East since 2008. We have recently relocated back to South Africa on a permanent basis. I have recently completed my BA Degree in Communication Science through the University of South Africa, I also have a Diploma in Computing and a TESOL certification, which certifies me to teach English to speakers of other languages. Most of my career was spent in the Training and Development industry because of my passion for working with people and training and developing them to reach their full potential.

I have enjoyed a successful career with internationally recognised brands while I was still living in South Africa; these include Siemens Ltd., RMB Private Bank and Sanlam Private Investments. During my time overseas, I went back to studying and pivoted towards Teaching and Language Training and then went on to complete my B.A Degree in Communication Science.

I completed my TESOL certification and was immediately offered a Language Training role at the college where I studied. During my time at Eton College, I had the opportunity to train both public and private sector. I then went on to join a large retail organisation, Al Tayer Group Dubai, where my role was Brand Product Trainer for an American brand, Crate and Barrel. After relocating to the Sultanate of Oman in 2014, I joined a British international school where I educated and supported learners with learning disabilities. I was then poached by a local Real Estate company to sell and rent properties to the expat community. This was my first introduction to the world of Real Estate. I rented and sold many properties and had the opportunity to work with a diverse, international market.

We then relocated back to South Africa at the beginning of 2018. After being exposed to the Real Estate world, the taste for it remained with me and I decided to pursue a career in Real Estate. I have recently joined Pam Golding Properties as an intern Agent and look forward to a prosperous and fulfilling career with this great company.
