"Donna Barnhisel is the BEST! Donna helped us find our new home during a very difficult housing market, fraught with too few houses and too many buyers! She kept us informed of every new house the minute it came on the market, which is critical in such a competitive marketplace! Donna handled it all with calmness and ease, as she offered great advice, was intimately knowledgable about each of the areas were were looking, incredibly responsive, displayed patience and empathy and was fun to work with, too! I will recommend Donna to all, knowing they, too, will be in good hands. Thanks, Donna!"

"Donna was outstanding at every stage of the sale process of our home in River Forest. We were in a position where we had to put the house on the market at a time when the market is always quiet and on top of that we wanted a quick sale. Through all the ups and downs, Donna proved to be a fabulous problem-solver and we actually got multiple bids and completed the sale within our target date."

"Donna was fantastic. Great local knowledge and recommendations. Very responsive and made things easy on us! Understood our interests and used her experience to help us understand what to avoid and what to go after. Very important to have her on our side in a neighborhood like OP/RF whee local knowledge is key. We love the house!"

"My family has worked with Donna on 3 housing transactions now and although I think this house we just bought is our forever home, I know that if the chance came up we work with her again. This year's housing market has been insane and through it all Donna stayed ahead of the game and helped make sure that we were the winning offer on our dream home. She also sold our house too! She made everything easy and was always available to answer questions, offer guidance, and help assure me when I started getting anxious. :) I would highly recommend Donna to anyone looking to buy or sell!" - Leanne

"Donna is a seasoned professional. Knowledgeable & experienced, she will guide you through your buying/selling experience with ease. Always reachable, always in the business! " -Jeff

"Donna knows a great deal about the housing market; she is extremely helpful with her advice, and supportive with providing connections (cleaners, stagers, repair persons, etc.) to get your home ship-shape for showing. She is also a pleasure to work with.." - Eleanor

"Donna was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. From the beginning where she clearly outlined the market dynamics through to every last detail of the closing, Donna was totally in control and thoughtful in her approach. She was consultative on the upgrades we made to the house to get it on the market, making sure we didn't overspend in prepping the house. She was clear in her pricing suggestions, often updating us on the market trends and justifying her recommendations. She truly served as a trusted advisor-- we knew that we could count on Donna to make decisions that would lead to the best outcome. Donna is a machine, seemingly working around the clock to sell our house. I highly recommend her as an agent!"- Berit
