Greetings, I’m Dirk van Rooyen and have been Franchisee of Pam Golding Nelspruit for 19 years. Starting the Franchise in Nelspruit was the best decision I ever made. Working with buyers and sellers is part of my daily life. In my spare time I love playing golf and reading history books. I believe in dedication to your work, honesty and caring weather it is for family, staff or clients is the best qualities one can have.

Born in 1944 in Pretoria, I was one of four children. After matric I studied at the University of Pretoria where I obtained my BA Degree with Economics and Public Administration. As an employee I worked for 33 years in Local Government of which 24 years as Chief Executive. Married to Almarie and together we have two sons and two daughters. We are also blessed with seven beautiful grandchildren. I left the possession of Town Clerk of Nelspruit in 1995 and acted as Local Government consultant until 1997 when I opened the Nelspruit Franchise.

We started with 2 agents and we are grateful that our staff has grown to 25 at present. For me as a father it is a privilege to work every day with your children who is also part of the family business. I’m not only a Director/Principal of the Nelspruit office but also serve on the Board of Directors of the National Innibos arts festival. I was also recently elected to serve as a Mentor for upcoming business persons in the Mpumalanga. I love my family who are all with me in the business and make time to spend time with the seven grandchildren.

As a Franchisee and Principal of the Nelspruit office I no longer do many sales as the office has 14 agents. However I’m still actively involved with the agents and assist them in transactions, training and mentoring. I am very privileged to be a part of the Nelspruit Pam Golding office and a part of the Pam Golding brand for the last 19 years. I have received several awards and achievements such as Gold Club status, National Franchise Office of the Year, National Premier Award, Marketing Excellence Award and Best of Mbombela in Nelspruit.

I enjoy being a part of this growing industry and learning more about new technology especially about developments. I like to improve my skills by still participating in the CPD programme. I truly enjoy dealing with staff, sellers and buyers needs on a day to day basis. When I’m not doing that, I like to stay active in my community as well as in my church. I am also a part of Innibos Directors, Innibos golf day, Marolea Makiti at the church and Cansa Relay for life. I have a great passion for golf nature and reading books regarding the history of towns.
