Five Minutes with Donna Cheney…
We asked our Regional Operations Manager, Donna, a few questions so that you could get to know her a little bit better.
How did you get into the letting industry?
I worked in recruitment for about 9 months after I graduated university in Newcastle, and was recruiting for a national property company. They called me and offered me a Lettings Negotiators job as they were impressed with my recruiting work!
What is it that you love most about your job and working in a letting agency?
I love the pace of lettings. It is a very fast paced industry, and highly time pressured, but I thrive in that environment and enjoy seeing quick results from our work. In my current position I love working with the people that I do – I enjoy coaching and developing people to be the best that they can and achieve what they want to in their careers.
Three people you’d love to have dinner with?
Brian Cox as I am fascinated by space and astronomy
Hugh Jackman as I find him very pleasant to look at!
Michelle Obama as I think she is a highly intelligent woman with a great deal to offer the world
I am afraid I am a bit of a Keeping up With the Kardashians fan… a bit of mindless entertainment on a Sunday evening!
What’s your passion outside of lettings?
I love the outdoors and am lucky to live so close to the coast and the beautiful Northumberland countryside and love walking.
