Don Ha – the courageous man with a fascinating mind
Don Ha is one of New Zealand’s leading property sales gurus. He is passionate about real estate and has lived and breathed property most of his working life.
He has an incredible rags to riches story. As a Vietnamese/Chinese refugee Don and his family escaped war torn Vietnam and arrived in New Zealand. He grew up in Otara and in his college years was educated at Aorere College in South Auckland. He joined his Fathers bakery on leaving school but decided wearing a suit was far more inviting than baking bread.
At the age of 17 years he made the decision that he would make the NBR’s Rich List by the time he was 40 years of age. True to his word, he did exactly that. His relentless efforts and passion in business and in real estate allowed him to create the life of his dreams.
Don has observed the success strategies of the world’s greatest business and property minds, as well as being awarded many top awards for Excellence in Real Estate and Number 2 for the prestigious International Leadership Award in 2005 for the Ray White Group.
Don’s life changed dramatically in 2012 due to the global financial crisis. The title of NBR’s $60 million South Auckland rich lister came to an end, however his mind-set remained focussed on sticking to his knitting. In truly remarkable spirit he picked himself up and carried on in the business of selling property and acting as a sales trainer and mentor to the real estate agents at Don Ha Real Estate trading as Top One Real Estate Limited.
One of his single biggest achievements to date is the designing and marketing of Sunline Estate. This was Don’s brainchild and resulted in a three year planning process including extensive market research, sourcing ideal investors and sourcing the land, working with a skilled team of architects to design the homes. From inception to completion, this project was worth more than $80 million and is the largest single level housing development in South Auckland.
To date Don Ha has sold more than one billion dollars of real estate personally.
