About Donna

I represent buyers and sellers in residential real estate from starter homes to their "dream" home plus parents buying for their college students. I sell houses, condos and townhouses from the urban to the suburbs, historic to move into fixer uppers to new construction. I am NOT a sales person; I am a consultant. I have a team to give my clients the best service and respond quickly to all calls and emails. My job is to educate my clients so they make informed decisions that results in them buying a property to make a home and a good financial investment. Each person has different needs and I work hard to find the right fit. I listen and ask questions to find the right financing along with the right home. I have been licensed since 1988. I am #1 in closed transactions for pre-existing homes in the last 5 years in Lexington. I have been named one of 250 top real estate service providers in North America in 2006 & 2007. 90% of my business is repeat and referral. I also have a nationally recognized real estate coach who keeps me on top of the rapidly changing residential market trends.
