Donna Harding, Engel & Volkers Halifax

“I look at every single client – and every single property – as a unique challenge,” says Engel & Volkers’s Donna Harding. “There will never be a situation in which I would think that something that worked for one person or property will work for another.” Harding’s understanding of her clients’ individual needs and desires played a key role in her becoming one of the fewer than 100 E&V agents to be awarded the title Private Office Advisor in the Americas.

Harding’s brokerage, the first E&V location east of Quebec City, is heavily community focused, using their growing resources to help fund a wide range of charities. They also offer free use of their boardroom to community organizations in need of space for meetings or events. “I think because of the natural profile that advisors and brokers receive it is important that we also act as leaders in the community,” says Harding.
