Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Temecula, CA.
We were very pleased with Marta's services. She was always friendly and professional. She successfully helped us through the process of acquiring a short sale. She was very knowledgeable about the Temecula area. We would be happy to work with her again.
I knew what I DIDN'T want. I didn't want someone who made me feel like my questions and concerns were insignificant. I didn't want to feel rushed through the process, especially since this was my first time buying a house. I respect the fact that realtors have a job to do and bosses who need results, but I didn't want to feel ANY of that pressure.
As it turned out, Marta was perfect. We had constant communication through the entire process. She guided me through the VA vs. Traditional loan decision making process. She encouraged me to get my own attorney to review all documents. Working with Marta was the equivalent to a Master's Class in Home Buying, minus the student loan. I liked the fact that she knows the area very well too.
This was one of the biggest decisions I've made, and I demanded a lot from the person representing me, Marta Donovan. I don't write reviews. I take that back. I've written one review for my dentist. However, for Marta, I gladly submit this info and encourage everyone reading it to work with her.
Marta helped me find the perfect place in such a crazy market, with sooo little inventory. She kept me informed daily of all properties on the market in my price range and meeting my criteria. When I wanted to see a property she got me in there right away. She handled all the details and paperwork totally professionally, making sure I understood it all. And she was fun to work with too!
