My name is Cliff Ponte, I am a full-time, full service real-estate agent and partner with Century 21 Associates. I was born and raised in Fall River. I attended Durfee High School, Bristol Community College and Umass Dartmouth where I graduated with high honors. I was very fortunate growing up. I was brought up with a loving and supporting family of which I am grateful every-single day for. While I was attending high-school, I noticed that most of my friends where getting their license and their car. I was into playing football and baseball. However, I wanted the best of both worlds, I wanted to play sports and have my license. But, I couldn't. I needed to purchase a car, pay for my car insurance and gas. I couldn't do that playing sports. So, I quit playing sports and worked at a local sub-shop. I hated every minute of working for 7.00 per hour and making subs. I wanted more, I wanted to be successful, I wanted to be a millionaire. I realized at a young age that I wasn't going to 'be handed' the keys to a vault with millions of dollars in it. I was in search of a job that can be rewarding and fun. I took my real-estate exam and worked Part-Time at Bank of America and real-estate. However, I hated 'punching a clock' so I made a move to get into real-estate full-time. It was in the middle of the worst recession since the great depression. But, I was bound for success. I had the support from my family and the most supportive real-estate company in the area. Since September of 2007, I have been employed as a full-time REALTOR with Century 21 and I wouldn't change a thing. I enjoy waking up every morning representing my company. As of January 2013, I have been promoted as partner in our firm at Century 21 Associates. For hobbies, I enjoy watching baseball, football, spending time with my family and friends and working at Cat Country 98.1 in Providence. (www.catcountry.com I am an ON-AIR DJ on Cat Country 98.1 6am-10am on Saturday mornings. Listen in. ( It's my hobby)
I look forward to being your friend and your realtor now and in the future.
