Donna Cliff - REMAX
Go for Sold
After RE/MAX Go For Sold agent Donna Cliff swapped business ownership to fulfil her dream of working in real estate sales she found herself forced to let that dream go after almost five years as she battled breast cancer.
Donna took on her illness with the same positivity and determination that marked her real estate career, and in 2016 she returned, accepted the need to regain her real estate license as a good refresher opportunity and quickly reestablished a successful career selling in the Palmerston North market she knows so well.
Her time out of real estate reinforced how much her role was a passion rather than a job, and just how much she missed working with people and helping make their real estate dreams come true.
Donna has now worked in two very different positions in the property market cycle, from the challenging but rewarding tough years of post-GFC slowdown to the extremely buoyant market of mid-2016.
What stands out to her in both cases is the importance of relationships.
Donna's first real estate boss summed her up as 'Very real'. Since day one, vendors and buyers remark on her honesty, patience, availability, responsiveness, great communication and valuable guidance, and her ability to take the pressure off and to see solutions rather than problems.
Donna cares about people. She wants her customers' real estate experience with her, and through RE/MAX Go For Sold, to be amazing. The team's successes clearly position RE/MAX Go For Sold agents as real estate professionals who market every home with commitment and integrity, and are master negotiators as they deliver exceptional outcomes.
While immersed in her real estate passion, Donna also supports the Manawatu Cancer Society, Breast Cancer Foundation and IHC New Zealand, which provides services to people with intellectual disabilities and their families.
