Clifford Brown - Century 21
I am Clifford Brown and stay here in the Mighty Waikato on a Lifestyle property just outside Te Awamutu.
Having spent 15 years in the Military as a Senior Artillery Officer and Second-in-Command of a large Artillery Regiment it laid the foundations of a solid set of Values that I base my life on and my work ethic on, namely;
- Never say die Attitude,
- People are Important
- Leading by Example
The Military prepared me well for a career in Project Management, in which I undertook Projects ranging from working with Two Large Aussie Mining Houses (BHP Billiton & Rio Tinto) to developing a 2300 hectare Banana Farm in Mozambique from bare land.
While here in NZ I spent time with a Fire Protection company in Bay of Plenty & Waikato, as a Contracts Manager, I then decided to utilise my business knowledge to assist Small to Medium Business Owners within the greater Waikato achieve the business goals by starting my own business as a Business Advisor, which I still manage.
My connection and enjoyment of assisting people has brought me on this path into Real Estate, where not only can I meet new people each day, but potentially assist them in making a sound decision in selling or buying their home.
One of the important things I always bear in mind when listing a property and working with the property owner(s), is reminding myself - 'You are not JUST selling a property for the people, it is far more than JUST a property it is their dreams and their memories that are invested in that home."
