This year Pam Sorel Properties celebrates 13 years as an independent real estate agency specialising in the Central Southern Suburbs of Cape Town where we sell and rent apartments, cottages, town houses and family homes.

Partly rural idyll and partly a sophisticated extension of "the Mother City", the Central Southern Suburbs offers some of Cape Town’s most desirable properties. Located on the verdant eastern side of Table Mountain and divided by the Liesbeek River. The area encourages a genteel outlook on life.

People enjoy living in our area for many reasons … We are spoilt for choice with the best schools in the Cape and proximity to the City Centre (a 10-minute drive), the airport (15 minutes away) and the beach (20 minutes’ drive) provide central living at its best. And of course the views of the mountain are magnificent.


While we concentrate on Newlands, Claremont and Kenilworth, we have also been successful in selling properties in Rondebosch, Wynberg and Bishops Court – and occasionally in other areas when asked to do so.

Looking for an apartment, cottage, town house, family home or a mansion in the central Southern Suburbs of Cape Town, either to buy or to rent? Then take advantage of our 30 years of experience in real estate in this exclusive area. Our website is always up to date and we hope you will find it easy to navigate and that you’ll enjoy browsing the many photographs of each lovely home.

Pam Sorel now lives in Newlands and has been selling property in the Southern Suburbs for the past 29 years. Her background is one of public relations and the hospitality industry. Her interest in selling real estate began as far back as 1971 when she obtained an Auctioneers certificate in Australia.

Among her achievements, Pam has written a cookery book which sold 10,000 copies in 1980 and was also instrumental in starting the Professional Culinary Circle. From 1982 she owned and operated her own national award winning printing franchise business (in Knysna her father was a printer and newspaper man while her mother owned the local bookshop).

Returning to real estate in 1989 she worked in the Southern Suburbs for a couple of the big names in property in South Africa. For the next 16 years, Pam achieved top honours and accolades. Pam was a founder member of the Newlands Residence Association, which is still going strong after 18 years. 

"Going solo was the best business decision I have ever made," says Pam today. "But without the loyal support of the local community I would never have done as well as I have, for which I am truly grateful."

We are pleased to welcome Wendy Sorel to our team. Wendy has filled the gap left by Serena Salmon and is now in charge of our rental portfolio.

She has already written leases to the value of R3.2 million and we are proud to say that we are enjoying many compliments on her professionalism, enthusiasm, caring and efficient manner from both tenants and landlords.

Wendy has a BTech degree in Radiotherapy with nearly 10 years' clinical experience.  She also has a UK qualification as a Nutritional Therapist. Wendy is passionate about helping others and when the need arose for a rentals agent at Pam Sorel Properties, she enthusiastically joined the family business to manage our large portfolio of rental properties.

Wendy is very excited about her new role, while still maintaining an active interest in Nutritional and Natural Medicine. Wendy and Rene, Pam's son, were married in 2014.
