Donna is a woman of her word who I trusted in the buying of and selling of our Maplewood home. She helped us back in 2010 when we moved in from PA, as strangers to NJ, to find the community that would best suit our personal style of living and help us to find the diversity and intellectual community we valued, as well as being on a Direct Train Line to NYC -- really essential to my husband's level of satisfaction. In 2013 we made the decision to prepare for a move across the country, heading to California. Donna guided us through the process and helped us find the right time to put our house on the market. Donna was very helpful in advising us on setting our original sales price on our home, and then in repositioning it with the right timing quickly when market factors changed (more houses were coming on the market in our neighborhood). We used the efficient cleaning services she recommended when we asked for suggestions to help my husband keep the house up for showing when I moved out of state before him. Donna keeps references for many services, so has names of painters (we added Color Brothers to her list, as we found that a reasonably priced painting crew who could fit us into their schedule), someone to fix our concrete step when a piano mover dropped the piano on it and broke it just before we were to go on the market! Donna was VERY flexible and helpful when we were out of town just before and during our house going up for sale, and helped keep us on track, assisting us on making connections and opening the house for a painter, etc. Most importantly, Donna kept us up-to-the-minute informed and prepared EVERY step of the way and was unfailingly Cheerful and Encouraging. She helped to de-stress what was otherwise a very challenging move -- going across the country leaving our 3 BR home and moving to a 1 BR apt. out in California. We felt VERY confident that our home sale was being managed well and that Donna was on top of Everything! Thanks to her and the diligent attorney she recommended, Elliot Scherr, we are now happily through final closure and in our new location.
