Consistently landing one-of-a-kind properties while netting the best return on investment, she once turned a $12.5K a month rental listing into an $11M dollar sale. Donna, a self-professed “real estate geek,” concedes that along with her study of stats and market trends, her sharp eye for aesthetics has been one of the key ingredients in her many successes identifying properties for buyers as well as preparing homes for sale.
A successful proven mass marketer, the powerhouse agent also has a reputation for orchestrating “off market” transactions with secret-agent-like discretion for uber-private clientele. How does she do it? By pairing comprehensive local market knowledge with ultra-personalized service and ace negotiation skills. Offering lockstep support, she routinely goes beyond the call of duty, even once being tasked with listing—and successfully selling with multiple offers—a home that was allegedly occupied by a ghost. (Yes, it was disclosed!)
Donna is involved philanthropically with Battery Powered through her membership at The Battery, a social club in San Francisco. Around Marin, you’ll find her hiking or biking, often with a camera in hand looking for that perfect shot, or socializing in one of the many wonderful cafes. Instilled with a love of architecture and an appreciation for the intricacies and beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area, Donna has lived in a choice list of cities and towns from Berkeley to Belvedere and Rockridge to Ross. It’s due to the many charming neighborhoods, tree-lined streets, and tight-knit communities that she calls Marin home.
Whether in the real estate realm or everyday life, Donna has a gift for sharing the world through her truly special lens.
