Originally from Pennsylvania, and by way of West Virginia and Tennessee, I became a resident of Hampton Roads in 1980. After having a family, and raising four kids in this area, I feel my insight can help others find that perfect home.
For 15 years as a Custom Home Builder, I helped people with the choices and decisions in building their dream home. For 10 years I was a mortgage loan officer where I thoroughly enjoyed educating people on their many lending options and helping them get through the process with ease and understanding.
Whether you have a growing family and need more space, are downsizing as "empty-nesters", or relocating for your employment, I will help make the transition as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
I look forward to sharing the buying or selling experience with you to make it seamless and fun. With me, its personal.
My Client Reviews
Michael gave Donna 5 stars out of 5
I have purchased several homes in the past, and I thought I was pretty well informed on the process. I must confess that Donna was invaluable in pointing out potential pitfalls, and teaching me a few things that saved us money, and got us into a great home. I highly recommend Donna, and you will be very happy if she represents you. I give her an A+, and that's an honest grade, not just an idle compliment. She knows the area, and really wants to produce for her clients. She really does care, and is not happy until you are happy. We are extremely pleased that we chose Donna to represent us as a buyer's agent. You will be too!

Donna was amazing. She was so helpful and knowledgeable. It was clear by her recommendations that she listened to what we were looking for. She communicated with us clearly and timely. I know many people say buying a house is one of the most stressful things you can do. Honestly, with Donna's help it was an enjoyable and exciting process. During the buying process it was so relieving to know that Donna was in our corner. She really had our best interests in mind when negotiating on our behalf. We bought our dream house in a beautiful location when we thought it was out of our reach. I have already recommended Donna's services to my friends and will continue to do so in the future.

Donna was great to work with. Donna was our agent for selling our house and the purchase of our new house. It was very evident that Donna is a true professional in her field. Donna made our process of selling and buying a house nearly seamless and always available to answer questions. We highly recommend Donna for selling or purchasing a house.

Susan gave Donna 5 stars out of 5
Best realtor EVER!!!ð¤ We had a difficult time finding a home, & getting a mortgage. My son-in-law just got his green card, & every step of the process was difficult. With her previous knowledge of mortgages, & brokers, she worked her magic. Every house we submitted a bid for was already under contract. We got discouraged, but Donna stayed focused, positive, & worked even harder to help us. Donna is a wonderful human being, a treasured friend, a consummate professional in every way! We couldn't appreciate her more, or recommend her more highly!! Look no further, she is your realtor. Guaranteed! Thanks again, Donna. You're the best!!!
Cameron gave Donna 5 stars out of 5
Donna is not your average realtor. She did not try and "sell" us anything just to score a payday. She cared so much about finding the perfect house for my wife and I that she worked with us for over a year to find the right one. When we were thinking about putting an offer on one house, she candidly told us that it was not a good idea. When we finally stumbled into a house that seemed too good to be true, she told us to act fast and helped put together an offer that landed us the house of our dreams. I never had a doubt that she had our best interests at heart. This was our first home purchase, and we had no clue what we were doing. Donna explained things at every step of the process, and she never made us feel pressured or guilty for saying no to a house. We are super thankful to have had such an amazing human being guide us on this journey!
Ashley gave Donna 5 stars out of 5
Donna is an amazing realtor. She is professional and knowledgeable about not only real estate, but about all aspects of the home buying process. I had a few bumps in the road throughout my purchase transaction, but she was there to reassure me and keep everything moving in the right direction. She is effecient and is willing to go above and beyond for her clients. I would recommend Donna to anyone who is looking for an outstanding realtor!
