I am Dot Stuart-White

My name is Dot Stuart-White, and in January I joined the Pam Golding Properties St Francis Bay team as a fully qualified estate agent. I am delighted to be working alongside colleagues who are hardworking, driven, community orientated, sporty and passionate about property.

I moved permanently from Cape Town to Cape St Francis with my husband and two children in January 2000. We bought a “renovators dream” very close to Cape St Francis beach, and began renovating straight away. In those days, there were very few permanent residents in Cape St Francis, and only a couple of children lived in the village. There were only five kids in the initial lift club to Woodridge! Wow how the area has grown, as people have moved away from the big cities to enjoy the fabulous lifestyle that St Francis Bay offers.

After finishing school in Cape Town, I first qualified as a Fashion Designer, but soon returned to my first love, dancing, which I had done since the age of 10. I became a partner in a dance studio at 22, and also danced professionally. I qualified as a dance teacher in my mid-twenties, and continued to teach and dance, until I had children. I taught dancing in St Francis Bay (at the venue now called The Studio) when we first moved here, and got to meet plenty of locals and their children.

In 2002 I started working as a rental agent in St Francis Bay, and that’s when my love of the St Francis Bay Village began. I then moved into property sales, which I did successfully for nine years.

My husband and I enjoy renovating property and have over the years re-vamped and built several properties in Cape St Francis and St Francis Bay, residential and commercial.

When my husband relocated his local business to Port Elizabeth, I worked for him for a short while, but missed the property industry. I then joined Bond Gallery and later Ooba Home Loans as a Bond Originator, where I worked for the past six years, while commuting between St Francis and Port Elizabeth. It was very interesting to be involved in the finance aspect of property during those years. The knowledge and experience gained in all aspects of the home loan industry, will be hugely beneficial to potential buyers, now that I am back in property sales.

Since late last year, I am no longer commuting and am back in St Francis Bay permanently. I am not a brilliant sportswoman but enjoy taking part! .. being an active member of the Cycling Club, Open water swimming group ,and enjoy SUPing on the canals, yoga, gym, aquafit and have completed 170 Parkruns.

I am passionate about property, people and I am service driven, and thrilled to be part of the PGP team!
