Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Kansas City, MO.
Carrie was the 2nd person I had contact with while looking for a home this time, but the 3rd person in general. I had bought a house in 2000. I started looking for homes again in Spring 2014 and had met an agent I was working with. She kept stating she would help me with this/that and it never happened. I was introduced to Carrie and she knew what I was looking for, where, but also knew I was looking and not in a huge hurry. Carrie set me up on some portals in my price range, what I was looking for, maybe ones not so much, but was giving me ideas on what I could get for my money. She never pushed, yet was always available to show me houses, knowing I was not planning on purchasing any time soon. That never bothered her, she was more concerned about me seeing the property that I had interest in, regardless. She would point out the things I wanted and the issues I did not, but with solutions to have the things I wanted at each property. She was also very honest. I fell in love with a property and wanted it so bad. She pretty much said NO! I know you think, what? Well she was right, the property was listed at price that was WAY to much for that area and the property itself. She lead me where we needed to go in order to make a great future for my son and I. Although I was so discouraged after that house "I just had to have" she kept me on portals that would notify me of new listings in the areas I was looking. I found one and fell in love with it. She worked to get us in that house to see it 3 days after it was listed and made sure they met our needs and did get me the "house I had to have". Carrie even came to my closing and made sure that it went smooth. Without her, I would not have received all my benefits awarded to me through my loan, and I would not have been as educated as I was through the entire process. I will always recommend her if you want someone that is very honest and that works for her client to make sure you get what you want, and know every step of the way what they are doing and what your investment is going for. She made a very life changing stressful situation a pleasant experience!
Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Southmoreland, Kansas City, MO.
I've work with many realtors over the past 30 years, and Carrie is absolutely among the best. She listened to our thoughts and desires in what we were looking for in a condo, and she immediately pointed us to the exact right building. Only one problem - there wasn't anything for sale in the building. Carrie started doing some research and learned of a few condos that were coming on the market. She created opportunity were there was none! Ultimately, the sellers wanted above market for the properties. Carrie was able to demonstrate with facts to one of the sellers why our offer was reasonable. They agreed and accepted our price. She then worked with the seller to hold the deal together while I got knocked around by my lender with the dozens of questions and documentation requests. She had to go back to the seller and work through a couple of difficult changes. Ultimately, everything came together and everything closed, and we have have a beautiful condo in one of the pretty buildings on Country Club Plaza. Give her a Carrie a call; she do a great job for you.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Blue Springs, MO.
Carrie did a great job finding the perfect house for us. Out of the 100's of houses on the market she narrowed the search down so that we were able to find the house that fit our needs in a much shorter time frame. She was able to negotiate the price of the house to better fit our budget. I would highly recommend using Carrie!!
Carrie is very easy to work with and has a vast knowledge of the real estate business. She is very easy to work with and is willing to go out of her way to get you into what you want. She is also a very good negotiator. I would recommend her to just about anyone that is looking for a great realtor.
I found Carrie through a realtor sign posted on a house I wanted to see. Carrie helped me look at alkl the houses I wanted to see and also helped me get a better aspect on what I was really looking for. I found with Carries help the home of my dreams!!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Lees Summit, MO.
We stumbled across Carrie on Zillow as we were looking for a buyers agent, and boy were we impressed! Right off the bat she was knowledgable, easy to get a hold of, friendly, and overall an incredible person that really works for you! She is a hard negotiator and is a hard-worker. She loves what she does, and loves getting the best deal she can, which we experienced first hand in buying our first home! We felt she dedicated time with us, didn't rush us, gave us great information, and advice. She is all about what is the best thing for YOU and we felt that way during the entire process, she is incredibly kind person as well. You will not be disappointed with "agent Carrie" as my kids called her! She is wonderful and I would recommend her as your realtor, buyers agent, or anything you need her for in your real estate journey! She is THE BEST in Kansas City!!!!
Carrie should get six stars! She helped us navigate a complex new build real estate transaction with great negotiation, professionalism, and care. She is a great realtor we are proud to call friend. Our family is so grateful to have Carrie on our side!
Carrie was great to work with. She handled both the sale of our home and our new purchase all within five weeks. This was accomplished using Carrie's great advice on staging and marketing our home. We were also able to get the home we wanted due to her excellent negotiation skills. I would recommend Carrie to anyone!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Kansas City, MO.
My husband and I recently purchased a new home and were thrilled with the fabulous service from our real estate agent, Carrie Donigan. From the start of our search, Carrie totally made herself available to us for showings at times that were convenient to us, quickly got up to speed with what we were looking for and helped us to hone in on the right neighborhood and ultimately the perfect home.
She personally facilitated any necessary visits to the house, repairs that needed to be made prior to closing and for any challenge that arose, Carrie found a quick solution, or had excellent recommendations for one. All through the process Carrie was terrific at keeping us informed with phone calls and emails from her cell, home or office. I do not think anyone could have gone any further or worked any harder on our behalf.
What was also impressive is that unlike other real estate agents, Carrie’s commitment and level of service did not stop once the contract was signed. She continued to work with us to meet our needs right up to settlement date, and we are still getting great service well after.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Carrie to potential buyers/sellers or even purchasing again from her. Carrie’s straightforward approach, industry knowledge and willingness to do whatever it takes to assist in making the purchase, made the process as pleasant and painless as possible. I am very impressed and grateful to her for the tremendous level of respect, integrity and professionalism she exhibits. She is simply the best real estate professional I have ever worked with.
Bought a Other home in 2011 in Mission Lake, Kansas City, MO.
Carrie was the best thing that could have happened to us when we decided to down-size this year. We contacted her with our needs and she got right on the j-o-b. She not only 100% knew the process of getting us the best price, she also knew how to get us out of our first contract (that she masterfully negotiated) when the mold inspection revealed more than we had bargained for. Later she showed us new options and once we found the perfect pad, she gathered the right comps to get it in our price range. She was also more than helpful with her knowledge of property tax appeals. We couldn't have found a better agent!! We more than recommend this FOR-REAL real-estate agent! Thank you!!
