Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $300K in Elkton, MD.
Donna is, in a word, FANTASTIC! I could leave the review having only said that, but it wouldn't do her justice...

Prior to meeting with Donna, we had viewed homes with several other agents. I was a little bitter about those experiences and expected that Donna would come to the table with the same "oooh... this is nice! You should put an offer in on THIS one! Here's my exclusivity agreement" at every house we saw. The agents we had dealt with previously had been unprepared, unprofessional and didn't seem to know much about the area in which we wanted to settle. Donna was different.

From DAY ONE she showed us that she had been paying attention to the information we had given her. She showed us the houses that we requested to see. She paid attention to our list of desired features, and she showed us houses that we didn't know about that fit within our price range. Not once did she show us anything that didn't fit the bill we gave here. Furthermore, there was never a sense that she was trying to push anything on us, or get us to settle, quickly. It was straight fact and straight advice on choosing a home that fit our needs, and in dealing with the negotiation.

There were two things she did that really caught my attention:

1) On our first trip, we were traveling with our 5 year old. He tends to get a little crazy. (As 5 year olds will do.) It was getting close to lunch time and we were all a bit cranky. Donna offered to share her grapes with him... That may not seem like a big deal, but to me it was. There was just something about the way she did it that made me realize that she was a good person. I can't explain it any better than that.

2) When we found the house we were really interested in, Donna showed me that she knows her way around a house. I happen to be a hobbyist carpenter. I'm pretty good when it comes to DIY and spotting flaws in construction. DONNA SPOTTED THINGS THAT I WOULD NOT EVEN HAVE THOUGHT TO LOOK FOR. She walked into that house with flashlights, a measuring tape and a collection of tools in the back of her van that I never would have expected. (It turns out that she and her husband own several rental units and do all the maintenance themselves. I believe her family owns an Electrician business.) While my wife and I had our "oooo ahhhh" goggles on, she was looking out for the pitfalls.

As if all of this wasn't enough, I also want to point out that she is phenomenally patient. Our negotiation process was not an easy one. The seller was working through a relocation agency and was living out-of-state. To boot, the seller's agent wasn't, (in my own opinion) the most competent person. Donna did her best to keep the process simple. She kept us in the loop at all times, and did her best to filter out all the drama. Most importantly, there was never a single moment where I didn't feel like I had a representative that was looking out for ME.

So here's my pitch: If you don't hire Donna, you're stupid. It's that simple. She is, quite frankly, the best real estate agent imaginable. She's honest. She's reasonable. She's professional. She's experienced. She's kind. If you can find someone that can beat that description, I'll... well... you fill in the blank. It doesn't matter. You won't find anyone better.

Donna did an amazing job. She was efficient, reliable, and dependable. She did an excellent job, we were thrilled with her service. Donna was very professional but also down to earth and very friendly. We will definitely recommend her to everyone we know that is looking for a real estate agent.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in North East, MD.
I contacted Donna 3 months before I got out of the Marine Corps. She helped us greatly in the months leading up to buying our home. She never pushed and NEVER asked us to sign anything so that we'd have to use her as our realtor. She is such a nice lady and made the home buying process all about US. She always answers emails, calls, and texts. Honestly, I can't say enough great things about Donna. If you are going to buy a home, you need Donna in your corner. She made everything effortless. She truly enjoys her job. We were so blessed to find Donna as first time home buyers. I promise you, you will be thrilled if you elect to go with Donna as your realtor.

Bought a home in 2013.
Donna was on top of things during the whole home buying process. It took seven weeks from showing of home to closing day - everything went smoothly. Donna helped with the negotiations. After the home inspections she handled the phrasing of necessary home repairs/improvements excellently since we wanted a detailed list and not just general descriptions. Questions were answered immediately (late hours, weekends), timelines were observed. We felt that our interests were taken care of by Donna. We can only recommend her.

I have been involved in over six corporate relo's and have never been as impressed with a real estate agent. Donna's knowledge of the area and experience in real estate made the experience positive and professional. We had a property with many issues and Donna was always on top of every detail and was diligent about keeping us informed. I highly recommend Donna Hollifield-Main.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $225K in North East, MD.
My husband and I chose Donna to to sell our house and buy another. I had previously rented from Donna and had a great experience with her! Before we listed, she walked through our home and made sure everything was up to par for inspection. Our house was only on market for 3 weeks before put under contract. She gave us the guidence we needed for buying another home and we were able to settle on both homes the same day! We love our new home and wish we had used her to buy our first one.

WOW, The professionalism and effort that Donna put into our home purchase was above and beyond what could be reasonably expected. The process got bogged down with delays and red tape, Donna kept us up to date and her advice and recommendations were spot on.Could not have done it without her. Thank You Donna!!!

Helped me rent a Condo home in Rising Sun, MD.
We were very pleased with the support and attention that our very particular situation received from Donna. We plan on using her services again to purchase a new home as soon as our Chinese Drywall situation in Baton Rouge is resolved.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Childs, Elkton, MD 21921
I contacted Donna concerning several properties in the Elkton MD area. She only got back to me on one and never followed up on my other inquiries. IF I continue to look in this area, I will probably go with a different buyer's agent.

Sold a home in 2012.
It was a short sale and the paperwork was endless, but Donna was thoughtful and the property was sold! Her knowledge of how the lender was helpful and she followed through on details.
