Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Burrillville, RI.
Donnie was extremely helpful and never kept us waiting. He had more knowledge and experience than the other three realtors combined in my opinion. His no nonsense approach to the real estate market was exeactly what we needed. He was honest and upfront so there were no surprises and was a phone call away every time we needed him. Not just a voicemail but answers!! ( even when on the other end with another client)
I could not have asked more from him, extremely organized and point on with his market analysis. We sold our house in TWO DAYS!!!!

Dear Ryan & Tara,
Thank you for such kind words. However I must admit that you made it SUPER EASY for me by having such a great home to begin with. And I have to mention the fact that you both did me the great courtesy of trusting my professional advice. GOOD LUCK TO BOTH OF YOU in your new journey and I truly look forward to working with you again, when you're ready. Call me anytime. God Bless.

We just can’t say enough about the experience of working with Donnie Bennett!
Truth is, we weren’t even certain that we were ready to jump in and buy another home. Especially a short sale! We both had heard horror stories of people who waited months for seller sale approval only to learn that the bank had decided to let the home go into foreclosure. Plus, we weren’t ready to sell our current home. It just felt like the odds were against us before we even walked in the door.
We finally decided to look at this property simply because it just looked too good to be true – large private lot at the end of a dead-end road, roomy house, in ground pool with a giant pool house – simply put, it was our dream home. We told Donnie that we didn’t think it likely that we had any shot at all. His positive, upbeat, “oh yes you can” attitude is really what gave us the confidence to dive in and try.
Being a short sale, much of the process involved activities completely beyond our control. Yet Donnie did an extraordinary job of keeping us informed, and keeping our worries at bay. We credit him with our continued ability to sleep at night throughout this whole process!
We would (and will!) recommend Donnie to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell their home. We will be calling him when we decide to sell our former home, and again when we get up the nerve to jump into real estate investment.
If you are reading this because you are searching for the best realtor in the area…look no further. Call Donnie. Odds are, your dream home is right within his reach.
Thanks, Donnie. You are the best!

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $375K in North Smithfield, RI.
My wife and I first worked with Donnie Bennett on the purchase of our current home, which as a short sale. As many people know, short sales can be a total nightmare. Our short sale purchase was not without it's complications, but Donnie managed to make all of the challenges less stressful. He worked with us every step of the way, and without his help, I do not think that we would have been successful in purchasing this home.
Since that time, we have met with Donnie on other matters and taken advantage of his real estate knowledge to help in our decision making.
I would not only call Donnie our realtor but also, a great friend!
I inquired about a home that Donnie Bennett was handling and got a call from him in less than 3 minutes. He seemed to be extremely knowledgeable and helpful when we spoke. He gave me information that I could not find on line and made some excellent suggestions to help me with my search. He also took the time to send me a list of qualified homes in my search area! If we were not already connected with a broker I would certainly use Donnie. I was very impressed with him.

My wife and I met Donnie when he showed is a property he had listed. He took the time before hand to give us his background in real estate and to see how much we knew about our rights as buyers. It turned out we didn't know anywhere near what we needed to purchase a home on our own. Donnie became a great asset and resource to have on our side to make sure we were treated respectfully and we're not taken advantage of. We ended up with a wonderful home in a great location and could not be happier. Even better still we now have a trusted ally and friend in Donnie and a great real estate team at our disposal should we need one again in the future.
Donnie helped us move into a flat in River Haven. He is super witty and equally professional. He keeps you in complete comfort zone and make sure you are satisfied with the deal. Best realtor i have met.He helped us get the best flat in woonsocket.
We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in RI
Very Condescending. Feels the need to "educate you". Doesn't listen to why you may have contacted him but rather likes to hear himself talk. If you know absolutely nothing and like being talked down to then this is the person for you. If you are looking for information be for warned, you will get someone who will go on and on, waste of your time, and not address your needs.

While I do not know who you are... I might AGREE with you that I do tend to go the "long way" sometimes, when I meet and/or speak to people who contact me about real estate. Mostly it's because one can never know the experience level or track record of a stranger on the phone.
Conversely, I might DISAGREE about good information being a waste of time.
With that said... I can't judge you negatively for vocalizing your opinion... you're entitled to it. So let me simply apologize for any offense that I may have created with you through our one and only conversation.
My intent is always to help where needed - and apparently you require less help than most of the people who contact me on a daily basis.
Hopefully you will have a much better experience, as you move forward.
Best of luck in your future endeavors - and thank you for your feedback.
I am in the process of doing multiple rentals/sales. I have spoken to Donnie on the phone and via email several times. He is very knowledgeable about the Real Estate Business. I have to to say I was very impressed. He spent a lot of his own time educating me and teaching me things I never new. And he actually listens to what your wants and needs are. You do not get that from Real Estate Agents at all. I am looking forward to working with him very soon.
Donnie did an amazing job helping my husband & I find our dream home. He was very patient and determined to find us exactly what we were looking for. He was very detail-oriented & kept us well informed throughout the whole looking/purchasing process.
Showed home in 2012 in Meshanticut, Cranston, RI 02920.
Donnie is diligent and determined. He answers his e-mails and phone calls right away and consistently giving one a feeling of confidence and importance. He loves what he does and works hard for his clients!!
