"With Donna Goldman's extensive knowledge of real estate contracts and her ability to put together a winning offer, we were able to stand out amongst the 5 other offers in a fast moving market. Donna arranged for and managed inspections, negotiations, rallying people and culling through mountains of paperwork in less time than seemed possible. Her familiarity with the area and understanding of the rarity of the home we had fallen in love with gave us confidence in what we were doing throughout the transaction. Immediately after purchasing our new home, we had to arrange the sale of our home of 10 years; it was a whirlwind and Donna orchestrated it all. She knows how to get a home ready, price it right and sell it fast. Our home, built in 1896 sold in one week, substantially over asking, with multiple offers."
"Both my husband and I were not wild about using a realtor in our home purchase. During our year-long home search we had run into many realtors that tainted our impression of their value. This feeling changed after working with Donna. Her, lack of pushiness and lack of pretension impressed us."
