I am Rustenburg Agent, Ian Straarup

Good day, I’m Ian Straarup and I am the principal agent of the Pam Golding Properties franchise in Rustenburg. I have been with the Pam Golding Properties group and as a franchise principal since 2004. I assist my staff in both the selling of farms and residential properties in and around the Rustenburg area. Get in touch and let’s discuss how we can assist you with your property requirements.  

Prior to working in the real estate industry I worked as a Bond Originator for 2 years before being approached to join a real estate firm. I started working with Pam Golding Properties in 2003 as an agent and became the principal agent in 2004. I have since then completed the Estate Agent Affairs Board exam in 2003 as well as my National Certificate for Generic Management (Real Estate NQF5) in July 2013.

What I love most about working in the real estate industry is the fact that I get to help my staff reach their full potential and I also get enormous satisfaction out of seeing clients well serviced, content and satisfied. I am a true people’s person and absolutely love making people happy and thrive on the daily real estate challenges. I also enjoy assisting my staff in their farm sales, residential properties and run a rental portfolio.

We are surrounded by game farms and I really enjoy spending a leisurely day out there viewing the various game and getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. This is a time that I get to exercise another passion of mine which is photography and I love looking for that unique shot, be it with a zoom lens or a wide angle lens. I’m quite often researching new photographic technology and techniques that are now available.

My family is of utmost importance to me and I value the close bonds I have with them. Any other spare time I have you can find me cycling in and around our Rustenburg area or in the Kgaswane Nature Reserve. A few more activities that relax and interest me are hiking, camping and doing a day drive through a game reserve. Please do get in touch and let us help you with any and all of your property needs.
