Co-Founder, PUREREALTY Brokerage
The story of PUREREALTY Brokerage begins with a powerful partnership forged by close friends Donna Bacher and Amy Gallant. With a wealth of experience and deep insights into the real estate industry, it was only natural for them to join forces and create something extraordinary. In 2017, they took the leap and opened the doors of PUREREALTY Brokerage in Hamilton, ON, with a team of three dedicated RealtorsⓇ.
Donna Bacher played an integral role in shaping the foundation of our brokerage. Her expertise and dedication were invaluable as she contributed to the growth and success of the team. With her vision and passion, Donna helped establish PUREREALTY Brokerage as a prominent player in the industry.
As Donna embarks on a new chapter in her life, deciding to retire in 2023, her departure leaves a profound impact on our brokerage. Her legacy is felt in every achievement, every milestone, and every client served. Donna's dedication, commitment, and warm spirit will be deeply missed by all of us at PUREREALTY.
"I have known, admired and respected Donna for many decades having worked closely with her. Donna's depth of knowledge in all things real estate and impeccable ethics makes her nothing short of an icon in our Real Estate Association as well as our profession."
"On this bittersweet occasion of her retirement, the REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington (RAHB) extends its warmest congratulations and heartfelt appreciation to Donna Bacher for her dedication and contributions as a long-service member and volunteer leader of the Association. Donna’s boundless energy, knowledge, and leadership within the profession have left an indelible mark on the Association. Thank you and congratulations, Donna, for the remarkable impact you have had on RAHB and the REALTOR® community. "

"I've known Donna for many years and got to know her better in the last decade through our volunteer work with the Realtors Association of Hamilton-Burlington. She is much loved and respected in our industry and I have the utmost admiration for her. It is incredible to see her love, passion and the great care she has for the Real Estate industry, her clients, family, friends and for the membership of RAHB. Often putting her needs aside to volunteer and ensure that the membership's interests were protected. I am sure she is the same with friends and family. Always selfless with her time and energy and often taking "bullets" to do what she believed was right. A great ball of fire with a great sense of humour too. All the best to you Donna. You deserve wonderful things and lots of joy!"
"Meeting Donna back in 2003 at Royal LePage State Realty Brokerage was like a serendipitous encounter. From a simple "Good morning" to endless conversations, I was captivated by her uniqueness, humor, friendliness, and dedication to her clients.
Over the years, our bond grew stronger. When the idea of forming our own real estate brokerage arose, becoming business partners was natural. Donna, you were the ideal partner – our venture, PUREREALTY, thrived. Your expertise, ethics, and unwavering commitment were the foundation of our success. Though your retirement brought a touch of sadness, it's heartwarming to see you enjoy life on the farm. I'm grateful for our friendship, proud of our accomplishments, and brimming with memories from the past 21 years, I'm excited for new horizons ahead. Donna, here's to our journey and the chapters yet to be written."
"I have watched Donna implement policies and procedures that are the cornerstones of our company today. She trained myself, and many other Realtors throughout her time in Hamilton to be honest, loyal, fair, caring, studious and intelligent. Donna was the kind of Realtor we all strive to be, professional, diligent, determined but kind. Donna is the encyclopedia of Real estate, you have a question- she has the answer and is there for you to figure out a solution. She understands that real estate is much more than buying and selling- it’s guiding people through some of the toughest decisions in their lives. She has taught me to scaffold support to lead people to a positive, educated outcome. She has shown me that as a Realtor we must wear many hats, but most importantly be a good listener."
