Real Estate Professional, California Realtor (39 years experience)
I can't say enough good things about Donna Marie and Ed Baldwin.
I wanted to sell my home in Tiburon and relocate to Burlingame. I had lived in my home for 37 years and could not image how two transactions of buying and selling would come together in today's market. Donna Marie and Ed spent three years looking for just the right property to meet my needs. They never gave up on me and found the perfect home in Burlingame.<br/><br/>They listed my home in Tiburon and sold it on the first showing over asking price. They negotiated the best price for me on the Burlingame home. It was stress free due to the excellent manner it was handled. Every part of the two sales was smooth and too good to be true.<br/><br/>The Baldwins as well as their staff is just the BEST!!!!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.875M in Redwood City, CA.
When we decided a few months ago to sell our house, our first call was to Donna Marie. She and her team, Penny and Kaye, had done a great job selling our previous home, so we knew we would be in good hands.
Penny worked closely with us on preparing the house for tour -- this included scheduling all the inspections, getting the house painted and cleaned (interior and exterior), updating the landscaping, staging the house, and preparing the marketing material (including website). She also helped us to get all the paperwork completed (there is a lot!). They were extremely helpful and responsive every step of the way. And the finished product was amazing!
We had quite a flurry of activity at the open house (which was on Superbowl Sunday), but Donna Marie advised us to give it another weekend before taking offers. She was absolutely right about it, as the following weekend we had even more interested parties! That following Monday, we sat with Donna Marie and Kaye to review the 6 offers (all over asking). I was impressed with the care they took to walk us through each of them, and they really spent the time to make sure we understood the pros and cons of the various offers. We accepted a really great offer, and we are thrilled with the process and the result!
I highly recommend Donna Marie and her team. They are such delightful, caring people, and they really make an extraordinary team.
Sold a home in 2014 in San Mateo Village, San Mateo, CA 94403.
Let me say...if you want a realtor and a team supporting that ROCKSTAR realtor, look no further than Donna Marie Baldwin and her team (Ed, Erin, Penny and Kaye).
There is a reason why she is TOP 1% for Coldwell Banker Previews...she is results oriented, responsive and knows what it takes to get a transaction done.
She has a support network of plumbers, electricians, inspectors, detailers, stagers etc and brings all that market knowledge as well as her resources to bear.
She was OUR listing agent, walked us through what the process would be, what information she required of us, what work we needed to do in order to get the house ready for market. Listed on Friday, open house scheduled for Saturday and Sunday (60 families over the 2 days), qualified buyers and offers by Monday. We were presented with a offer Monday evening at 10:45 PM and were pending by the following day at noon!!!!
She walked us through everything, both she and the buyers agent vetted the offer and the buyers. We knew we were in good hands. The buyer and their agent were in constant contact with Donna Marie and team as we moved towards a smooth close. Timing is everything and in a highly competitive marketplace (Peninsula), you need an agent who is your advocate but also willing to work with buyer agents to ensure a seamless and pain free process.
Her dedication is to her clients and NOT THE COMMISSION on the transaction. How many realtors do you know you can say that about? Her passion is real estate and making dreams come true for families. Though she was not our agent for the purchase of our new home, she still provided guidance to us on what to watch out for and how to make sure we were protected. She and her team made sure my lender as well as the developer for the new home were constantly apprised of how the sale of the existing home was coming along.
Trust me when I say this, you are in GREAT HANDS with Donna Marie and her team!!!!
I had a great experience selling my home with Donna Marie.My home sold in a few days with multiple offers.
Donna Marie and her staff worked quickly to get my house onto the market.
She listened to my needs and gave great advice.
I felt her and her staff worked hard to please me and made the selling process easy and unstressful.
Donna Marie has an amazing work ethic and an incredible knowledge of the current marketplace.
It is apparent she loves her work and she will go above and beyond her job description to make her client happy.
Sold a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $1.125M in Miraloma Park, San Francisco, CA.
I have had more than one buy/sell transaction with Donna Marie. I did not know her beforehand. i had heard of herby her amazing reputation..but little did i suspect how fabulous she would be. I consider her to be the best in the business. She is a consummate professional with a vast knowledge of every aspect of real estate. She was honest, tenacious , dedicated, enthusiastic , and always mindful of my needs and best interest. In the future I would use no one else. i have recommended her to friends who also have had successful dealings. Her staff is second to none. Kaye and Penny are treasures..always, kind and helpful, organized and efficient. I now consider all of them to be my friends, which is my privilege indeed!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $3.325M in Hillsborough, CA.
With Donna Marie you are not in just good hands, you are in the hands of an expert, who possesses knowledge, incredible patience and the negotiation tenacity of a professional you want on your side! Recently, we listed our home in MLS on a Tuesday, we had two offers by Friday which resulted in a SOLD sign on Monday. Unheard of in any market, especially today’s!
Donna Marie represented us as both a buyer and seller - on five separate properties. Two of which, we purchased and sold through Donna Marie.
I highly recommend Donna Marie and her outstanding and highly professional team!
I have lived in my home for 18 years and had toyed with the notion of selling over the past 3 or 4 years. I met other realtors in years prior and I could not make the decision to sell as I had not yet met Donna Marie Baldwin. :-) As a 'trekkie', there is a saying that 'resistance is futile' and so resistance was pleasantly futile after meeting this dynamic professional.
I am a business person, entrepreneur, with a rather focused and hopefully not too crisp a personality. :-) I needed to be able to have someone work as hard for me as I work for myself and others. I found that level of professional commitment, candor and caring with Donna Marie Baldwin. I needed someone that I could rely on to do the deal well with competence; Given the years (37) that Donna Marie has been a top performing professional, I had confidence that there would be little risk that she would encounter something she'd not dealt with in the past. Experience, combined with empathy, humor and drive, won me for sure.
Donna Marie augments her abilities by engaging a fabulous team of Penny, Kaye, and Erin. They operate as a 'small startup' in everyone has a focus and specialty with Donna Marie as CEO if you will. The wonder of it all is that we all worked hard and I even enjoyed the process, though I do not want to repeat it personally anytime soon. :-))
I sold my home in 7 days of being on the market with 5 offers all above list. The pre and post sale is being handled by Donna Marie/team; and I am getting the focused resources in my search for a sweet condo in my 'right sizing' strategy. I have complete confidence that the transaction was handled professionally and ethically.
I have since referred Donna Marie Baldwin and her team to other colleagues and friends who I know are considering 'right sizing' and would gladly provide personal referrals.
Sold a home in 2013 in Devonshire, San Carlos, CA 94070.
I've known Donna Marie and Ed Baldwin for over 10 years. They assisted me over a
lengthy search to find the home I was looking for in San Carlos. Seasoned at negotiating price and closing the deal. And when the time came, there was simply no one more qualified to sell my home. Donna Marie and Ed are very professional in their dealings with customers, but they also extend this professionalism into trusting friendships. These are people who truly care, and love what they do. And it shows. I would recommend their services without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell in the bay area.
Sold a home in 2013 in Parkside, San Mateo, CA 94404.
Where to begin...
With so many good things to say, it's easier to start with saying that throughout the entire process of selling my home, not a single disappointment across the board – the execution was perfect.
Donna Marie and her team are more buttoned up than a kid on a cold day in Buffalo. Donna, Penny and Kaye work in Orchestra, maintaining synergy at all times and with zero over lap. No stone was left unturned, every need catered to. It was literally like having a concierge service that just happened to also be selling my property. Above all, the extreme level of comfort achieved and bone-fide relationship that resulted from working with Donna Marie what was paramount to me, and I couldn't be any more satisfied. I consider myself, and anyone with the opportunity to partner with a person of such genuine professionalism – extremely lucky.
