“Every day is a new opportunity.”

Hello, my name is Gail and I am a relocated Durbanite who would not change our lovely Cape lifestyle for anything. I was born in England but schooled in Natal and graduated from The University of Natal (Durban) with a B. Soc Sci. After working for a local newspaper for a few years, I went to live in Mauritius where I indulged in my love of warm tropical waters and a gentle lifestyle before returning to South Africa. Once back home in Natal I worked for a local and international freight company and transferred in the early 1990’s to the Cape where I have lived in Somerset West ever since.

After a foray into the wine industry for four years, I settled into selling real estate in the boom times of the early 2000’s. I have a Professional Practitioner Certificate in Real Estate (NQF4) qualification. I enjoy finding the perfect home for a buyer and I have clients who have remained loyal to me over the years, buying and selling multiple properties from me. When not busy with real estate I enjoy wine tasting, (and helping annually with garargiste wine making), walking, the odd game of boulle, an occasional dip into the ocean, cooking for family and friends and reading.

I would love to introduce you to the special lifestyle we have in the Helderberg and help find you a home to be proud of, or to assist in making the sale of your home as quick and painless as possible for you.

“Gail Howell facilitated the sale of our family home of 19 years. She was sensitive to our emotions and was steadfast in finding the right buyer for our unique property. Her calm presence was much appreciated. ”

“I can't praise the service I received from Gail Howell at Pam Golding highly enough. Our sale became drawn out and complicated when the buyer's finances ran into difficulty. The house became vacant and I was overseas. Gail did everything possible to ensure that the property remained secure and looked neat so that it wasn't squatted or broken into. Her communication was brilliant and she spared no effort to bring the process to its eventual successful conclusion. Thanks for going the extra mile, Gail! ”

“We recently sold a property with Pam Golding and the the whole process was really well managed. Gail Howell was a star and really made the process easy. This is the second time we have bought/sold a property with Gail and would use her again when the time comes. ”
