Veteran Real Estate agent on the Big Island of Hawaii where I've specialized in sales since 1990. Opened the first REMAX office on the East side of the island in 2002 and subsequesntly opened up my own sole proprietorship in Hilo, Pacific Isle Properties, LLC. Past recognitions  include Assoc Realtor of the Year in 1995 and 100% club member of REMAX for the past 4 years.

From the beginning of my Real Estate career in 1990, I had to choose what type of a Realtor I'd be. A Reator that gives more and more, or takes more and more. I've been giving for 20years and am still giving. It seems to pay off!

Ratings & Reviews

Donna's many years of experience in the Hilo Hawaii area real estate market and ability to survive during difficult times speak for her expertise. Donna has helped me with the purchase of two homes for here in Hilo and I currently rely on her to managing one home as a vacation rental. She knows who to call to when questions or problems arise and get quick answers or solutions. She worked to understanding and acknowledgement of what my desires were and then helped to make my dream home become a reality.

11/05/2011 - Ida Known
Bought a home in 2011 in Pocket, Sacramento, CA 95831.

From finding us the perfect home in paradise to sitting with my husband and me while we were signing scores of documents at the title company, from driving us around to show us homes of interest to providing us a place to stay before the title was recorded, from the general tasks to the detailed tasks, Donna executed each task impeccably. We thought we had given Donna an impossible job: finding us a home near the University of Hawaii in Hilo and getting us moved in within just a few weeks. But Donna repeated from the start, "We’ll get this done." We flew from the Mainland to Hilo, and Donna was prepared to show us homes. Donna knew of issues with some of the houses that we told her we’d like to see, but wanted to show them to us regardless—just to show us that we weren’t missing out on anything. She understood what we wanted in a home and knows the real estate--she was right in each case. On the 2nd day, Donna showed us a home that she thought we might like. As soon as I walked in, I said, "I want this one." It had a beautiful interior with ocean and mountain views and was just a few miles from the university. She negotiated a lower price and got us a few extras; we signed papers; and within a few weeks we moved in. Trying to purchase a house in Hawaii from the Mainland in a matter of weeks, an impossible job? Not if you have Donna Herbst as your real estate agent.  More Less

Sold a home in 2010 in Honolulu Landing, HI 96778.

I have known Donna Herbst for 10 years. She has helped my husband and I buy several properties all over the island and she absolutely knows her market and her agents. She has always been able to get us exactly what we wanted and sometimes it was VERY hard to find. She never gives up and she is completely honest. I highly recommend her to you!!  More Less
