Since being out on property development sites in Dublin, Ireland, with his father as a child over 50 years ago, Geoffrey Donoghue´s life has been spent in property. Being involved in real estate in Marbella and the Costa del Sol since the 1990s is a dream come true. Knowing every street, plot and developer also helps! Meeting clients from all over the world is always a pleasure.
To see the same clients coming back and referring friends and family is proof of the care and attention paid throughout the process. To cycle with our children along the seafront at the weekend is a reminder of the unique place that we live in and where they have grown up. Being involved with sales at Always Marbella is a perfect fit as in the end after showing the best properties within our client´s criteria, the chosen property always sells itself! The sale is only the first step in a lasting relationship of quality service.
Clodagh was born in Dublin, Ireland. Before moving to Marbella she was an Air-Hostess and travelled the world for many years. After marrying and having two children she tried to settle again in Dublin but it was not to be. In 1998 whilst on holiday in Marbella with her husband they bought a property, and after a few years of holidaying there and enjoying everything that Spain had to offer, they moved to Marbella permanently with their children then aged 1 and 3.
The 3 year old had asthma, and after moving to Marbella it disappeared. She is very grateful that their children have grown up in a magnificent environment, and attend one of the many International Schools there. With the flight to Ireland only being two and a half hours it is very easy to see friends and family often, but usually they want to come to the Costa del Sol instead! The many years of experience that Clodagh has of living in Marbella and on the Costa del Sol is of great benefit to her Always Marbella clients, some of whom wish to do the same thing.
