Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Lancaster, PA.
We met Don when we relocated to Lancaster and called on him to help us purchase our first home. There is no question that Don knows the community well! We have appreciated his guidance on local services (from dry-cleaners and locksmiths to brokers), and his care and commitment throughout the process of seeing homes, making offers and finally signing all the paperwork. Don checked in often, and we knew that we could call him at any hour of the day (or night). This was not an easy negotiation, and we had a lot of questions along the way which Don did his best to answer. While I did not always feel entirely at ease with the process, and there were moments at which I felt I needed more transparency, I did have the sense that Don was making a strong effort on our behalf. Don cares for his clients and works to meet their needs.
Don has been a great help in our search to find a new home. We have only lived in the area for a little less than a year, so he has been out with us several times and continues to send us listings for us to review.

I started writing a review for Don and was so overwhelmed with where to start. Don has been our greatest advocate through the purchase of our first home, a very difficult sale of that home, and a speedy purchase of our current home. Don is extremely attentive--he calls often with updates and answers emails and calls usually within minutes if missed--he really makes you feel like you're his only client. He doesn't rush you or push you towards anything. He has spent countless weekends and evenings showing us homes when we weren't sure what we wanted. He is ethical--one of his most obvious traits--he's knowledgable, he is patient. Don is educated in his profession and attends classes regularly. He has the MLS and often the disclosures for houses when you go to see a home, and he gets documents to you in a more than timely manner. For our first home and our new, current home he had contracts immediately after the showing, and for both we were under contract the next day. He was relentless when it came to supporting us through our very difficult sale--he spent months contacting, collecting, and passing on information for the sale of our home. Don is knowledgable and experienced, so he knew exactly how to get our buyers in the house they wanted, and get us into a home to fit our family. Over the last four years, Don has grown as a friend to us, and our two year old adores him and asks if we are going to see "Don Spica" with each car ride. He is a family focused man, and he is as loyal and upright of a person you'd want to represent you. I recommend him as a realtor and am beyond impressed and grateful for his attention and hard work for my family.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $200K in Lancaster, PA.
Our son was looking for his first home by going to open houses to get some idea of what was out there and see what he could afford. He met Don and they immediately connected. Our son was uncertain about where he wanted to live and exactly what he could afford. Don understood this and was very patient during nearly a year of house hunting. Don never tried to push our son in any particular direction. When the “right house” finally got on the market, Don answered all our questions and provided numerous suggestions to complete the deal. Don always conducted himself with integrity while acting in our son’s best interest.

There are several positive words to describe the characteristics of any one person, but few people who qualify for those of Patience, Understanding, Compassion, Consideration, Kindness, Respect, and Genuine Concern for the people they serve in any given category. In the field of Real Estate, we feel particularly fortunate to have found Mr. Don Spica, located in the Lancaster PA area, as our agent in search of a new place in which to move our home, and recommend him for anyone looking for "The Right Person" to assist them in one of Life's important decisions.
We purchased our first home in 2013. Don was able to show us multiple properties that included what we wanted in a home and still with in our budget. I really respected Don's professionalism and ability to cater to us whenever we had any questions or concerns. He was available to us from day 1 until the day we closed and even after a phone call away . He was patient, made the reasonable and good suggestions, and never pushed you to make decision I must say his real estate market expertise, patience, hard work and communication skills are second to none, I would highly recommend his services.

As a first time homebuyer, I was apprehensive about the process. I didn't always know all of the questions to ask or exactly what steps to take throughout this process. Don Spica was very helpful and honest. I really felt like he had my back the whole time. When looking for homes, he stayed in my price range and did not try to show me any homes that I could not afford. He was always available when I had questions, and if he did not know the answers, he found them and got back to me very quickly. He advocated for me during the negotiations process and I couldn't be happier in my new home. I highly recommend Don to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Sold a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $75K in Lancaster, PA.
I had the pleasure of meeting Don back in 2008 as I was considereing selling my home and relocating to a different area. At the time, however, I decided to list with another local agent. After approximately a year of having my home on the market without ANY offers, I decided to part ways with my agent in 2009. The first person I thought of was Don! And, after only working with Don for about 3 weeks, I had multiple viable offers with one ending in a sale! Needless to say, Don is the epitome of hard work, professionalism, and commitment, and he is the definition of being "results-oriented". I am still impressed by his work and strong communication skills. Additionally, the interpersonal skills that he used while working with me made the process comfortable, enjoyable, and feel like more than just a sale. I would strongly recommend Don to anyone looking to work with someone who is trustworthy and professional.
