Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $150K in Brandon, FL.
Thanks to Donna, we had a contract to sell our house within three days of listing it. Donna helped us set the price and get it ready for sale. She did such a great job preparing the listing and writing up the description that when I read it, I almost didn't want to sell anymore! Donna is connected to people who can get the home ready and knows the local market very well. She was quick to respond to our calls or emails and with us throughout the process. I highly recommend her if you are selling a home in the Fishhawk or Brandon area.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Lithia, FL.
After listing our home with 4 different agents in NY over a 2&1/2 year period we finally sold our home. The agents we encountered were completely incompetent and were only looking for a commission and were not looking out for our best interests. Thankfully we had Donna and her team working for us on our relocation to Florida. We have worked with her numerous times in the past with investment properties and trusted her and knowledge and instinct to help purchase our personal home. We literally bought our home sight unseen based upon Donna's expertise and experience. She knew exactly what we wanted and what would suit our needs because she pays attention to her clients and cares about doing the best job for them. She is truly one of a kind! Every experience in our real estate dealings has been a pleasant one with Donna. We love our new home and could not be happier. I only wish the other agents we dealt with were as great as she is. We could have been much happier much sooner. This was our best experience ever!
Donna assisted with every step of selling our home. I jokingly stated that she had to beat our previous home sale of 35 days. Donna priced our home competitively in FishHawk and had a contract in 4 days! She is knowledgeable in every aspect of the real estate business from staging our home to closing on our new house. She is without a doubt the best in the business!
Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $300K in Valrico, FL.
Donna was great to work with! We made a big move from Pennsylvania to Florida with our two young boys. It was important for us to take our time and find a home that met our "checklist" of needs, which was also in a great school district and a safe community. This was no easy task. Having never lived in Florida before, we didn't know where to start looking. Donna started us off looking in the Fish Hawk and surrounding areas but we soon took Donna North, South, East and West of Tampa. Ultimately, we ended up back where our search started, in Valrico. Donna was so patient while we explored many, many areas and neighborhoods together. It took us quite a few months, and lot and lots of houses to look through, but Donna found us our dream home. Thank you Donna (and Alex too!).

I just bought my second home with Donna as my realtor, and both experiences were great. She took what she knew about my family and I found a home the very first day we went looking. With her help, I just moved into a home that is absolutely perfect for myself and my kids, in a neighborhood that has so many amenities that its unreal. I recommend her to everyone!
Donna was our third and last realtor. I wish we would have found her before the 2 previous. She turned our home buying experience from a nightmare into our dream home in less than a few days. We were buying from out of state prior to a job move and had limited time and visits to get down here to look for a house. She had a list of houses that we liked and adjusted the list after listening to our comments on each house. By day two she was able to do what two other realtors had failed at. Two days to find a house you love is pretty remarkable. I highly reccomend her.
Donna brought years of experience and expertise to the table. She spent time with me and my family and sought out the properties that provided the best fit for our needs. She did a large amount of prep work prior to our house hunt, modified our search crieria during the process, expertly guided us through the negotiation process, and continues to provide help and expertise until closing. She believes in the community she lives in and strives to provide the best for her clients. I was truly lucky to find her and that she helped me find my next home. I would not hesitate to and have recommend her services to my friends and family.
Bought a home in 2010 in Bloomingdale, Valrico, FL 33596.
I moved to the Tampa Bay area from Pennsylvania back in 2010. Donna and her team were originally referred to me and they were a pleasure to work with from the start. They exercised great patience with us as we often traveled along with our two young boys to review homes all throughout Hillsborough county. Donna Walker's team spent several months working closely with us to find the perfect house to suit our family and specific requirements. We found that perfect home and are greatful we had the experience we did working with Donna. I would highly refer services to anyone looking to move and/or buy a home in the Tampa Bay area.

Donna sold our home in one week. We appreciated that Donna came up with a home price that was priced right to sell. The closing was very well done with no problems. She always returned our calls and is now showing us homes to purchase. She is very professional yet friendly and personable. We would highly recommend her and her team to anyone.

We asked Donna to show us properties in areas close to Lakeland and Riverview when we moved here from Canada (due to work relocation). Donna is very knowledgeable especially in the Fish Hawk area and she is always willing to spend the time and energy to assist with our search. She has a great relationship with and knowledge about the local builders and provided us with great service and follow-up.
