We were coming from a completely different area, and not knowing where we should even look first, Donna Smith just started driving and teaching. She didn't have an idea of what we wanted because we were morphing in what we wanted along the way. She was so pleasant and taught us about the positives and negatives of going to retirement communities vs. finding a home with amenities in a normal family neighborhood. She taught us about the different areas of the county and what each had to offer, even to the dollar amount of one electric company vs. another....this process was long and included many all day trips to become educated. When we finally had a plan, she helped us focus on those things we wanted most. And without her generosity and deal making....we wouldn't have our home! And, she'll be our friend for life! Couldn't recommend anyone more than Donna and her team! Thanks Donna!

Thank you Cindi and Sterling! The best part of seeling real estate is all of the great new friends I meet! I love my job!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Springdale, UT.
Donna was very helpful in helping us buy our dream house in southern Utah. Even though she is based some distance away, she had extensive knowledge of the area in which we purchased our home. She was very helpful in all aspects of the transaction and continued to be helpful after the sale was completed, often going beyond the call of duty to help us get settled in our new home.
If I come back into town, Donna will be the first person I call to find me a home. She was willing to go with the low ball offer when I bought the house after showing me homes in the area based on fitting the area to my personality, and was able to sell the home at a higher price then the current low cut market, quickly when it was time. A perfect fit!
My wife and I live in Florida and, with Donna’s help, recently purchased a lot in Springdale. She went above and beyond in helping us to complete our due diligence from far away. We never felt pressured to make a decision before we were totally comfortable with the purchase. Donna and her staff were always friendly, helpful and professional. We would highly recommend her to anyone interested in relocating to Southern Utah. Two Thumbs Up for Donna!
Donna has a wealth of local knowledge. She knows the market and will ensure that you get top dollar for your home. Most importantly, Donna makes sure you are in charge of your home buying or selling experience. She gives important advice and then let's you make the decision. She is a tireless worker who always has her client's interests in mind. I can while heartedly recommend Donna when buying or selling real estate in Southern Utah.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Washington, UT.
If you are looking for a great agent Donna is the one! So honest and does not make you feel pressured in anyway, very happy to have linked up with her for our home buying process. We would recommend her any day!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Saint George, UT.
We made contact with Donna Smith of RE/MAX First Realty and, from the on-set, her sincere, warm and friendly manner made us comfortable and at ease. Then, with her knowledge of the St. George area and the available properties in our price-range, we were able to 'zero-in' on the right-fit home for us. Plus her genuine interest in our needs, and her pleasant manner towards both the seller and us, made the transaction an enjoyable experience!!
I would recommend Donna to anyone that is buying or selling a house. Donna is on top of the St George market she can find the right piece of real estate for you. She is very responsive to your questions and is patient and helpful. A delight to work with.
I have done multiple deals with Donna and she has been a joy to work with. Donna has been very professional, honest, and straight forward at all times. I would recommend Donna to anyone needing the assistance of a Realtor.
Donna is a fantastic agent who is on top of details. She is punctual and courteous, and we enjoyed working with her very much. She was patient with our house-hunting process and helped get us in a home we love. She gave us great advice through the whole experience. Thanks Donna!
