Donna's testimonial

"From our first meeting with Donna Harpur-Swain, we could not have asked for a more enthusiastic and very professional person. Throughout the whole process of buying the business, Donna was incredibly helpful and nothing was too much. With Donna's extensive knowledge in all aspects it has made this experience a lot easier. We are incredibly grateful for her expertise, professionalism and personal touch throughout this process and would not hesitate to use her in the future."

Chris Trembath and Saskia Govaerts, Blacks Hotel (Purchasers)

"We interviewed five different brokers for the sale of our hotel and Donna was a standout. Her personality, banking experience and work ethic stood out from the crowd, so it wasn’t a hard choice. Donna proved to be a valuable asset to our team, with constant communication, coupled with a brilliant set of skills, we would not have chosen someone else. All in all, she made the selling experience stress free, and smooth. We could not recommend her more."

Alex Stoddart, Managing Director, Blacks Hotel (Vendor)
