In paradise with a passion

2011-07-01 00:00

MARIE Nel, who runs Huizemark Properties, has a passion for property, loves the South Coast, the sea and her family.

How long have you been on the South Coast?

Twelve years.

Would you ever want to live anywhere else?

Most definitely not. I’ve always wanted to live by the sea and won’t easily give it up for another place. And the South Coast has this way of getting under one’s skin — it’s paradise.

Your favourite thing about the South Coast?

To wake up in the morning with the ocean in front of me lying like a mirror. And to top it the whales playing … absolutely gorgeous.

Your favourite place to have fun?

Southport beach, under the trees. It is the perfect spot to have a braai.

What do you do for a living?

I’m a property agent for Huizemark. Property is my passion.

Describe a day in your life as a property agent?

From eight in the morning I’m busy with

e-mails, answering phones, liaising with clients, taking clients to view properties, finding new properties and meeting new people. Sometimes I only get done after eight at night.

What do you do to relax?

I love to spend time with my husband and kids — family time as we call it. If I do get the time I enjoy to read and cook.

What do you think about the sardine run?

It is an amazing thing to witness and be part of. The fun and excitement are something I think everyone should see and experience at least once. It is something I look forward to each and every year and I get excited in May.
