"Donna was instrumental in helping us determine exactly what we wanted, showing us homes that matched our expectations and assisting us in the negotiations process. All of this resulted in time well spent and great pricing! She is an experienced, trustworthy and responsive agent that truly cared about our purchase experience. I would highly recommend Donna!!"

—Stuart Peats September 1, 2013


"

This was our first purchase and Donna took everything into account. We lived out of state, had to handle everything over the phone and with Donna's help and expertise it went smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and we will definitely be recommending Donna and her team.

Our experience with Donna was professional, fun and enlightening throughout the whole process. Her knowledge and positive attitude were instrumental in selling our home in less than a week. The pictures she took and the brochure were outstanding. I didn't know our house could look that good in pictures! A few issues with the buyer's lending company gave us some angst but Donna's reassurances were on the money and kept the stress level down. I highly recommend her and her company.

—Victoria Meyer November 13, 2015

Now that all is done I just want to thank you for the great job you did for us. From marketing to selling and the great communication throughout the whole process. You are truly an exemplary agent and just a darn good person.

Donna listed our home and represented us in the purchase of a new home. Donna is extremely knowledgeable about the market and process. Donna set our expectations and delivered on all of them. She is always available and responsive no matter the time or day. We've used Donna twice now and I would never consider another agent.

"

My wife and I recently relocated from Northern Va. to Perrysburg and our home realtor referred us to Donna. We could not have been more pleased nor satisfied. A true professional, she guided us through the unfamiliar real estate market, tirelessly showed us 22 homes in 2 days, aided us addressing issues in the purchase, home inspection and settlement on the new home. Once the deal closed, she continued to help us with contractors, home warranty issues and info about our new hometown. She is simply outstanding and we recommend her to anyone.

Donna Friesner was an absolute pleasure to work with. She surpassed our expectations with her professionalism, her responsiveness during all our correspondence, and by being kind and caring during the sale of our home. Donna really went out of her way to make sure all our needs were met and that we were properly informed of all the details surrounding our transaction. I highly recommend Donna to anyone buying or selling a home, and I would not hesitate to call her if I needed a realtor in Ohio.

Donna Friesner helped us find our new home in Perrysburg. In particular, she showed us more than 12 houses over one month, and helped us make the final choice. We are very pleased with her service. We would like to highlight three things which we liked most in her: (a) She never put us in time pressure. She always reminded us that we were going to make a big investment and hence we should wait until we find our perfect house. (b) She is hard working and helpful. She responded to our queries through SMS or email within hours if not within seconds. (c) After visiting first few houses with us, she was able to read our mind and understood what kind of house we are looking for. That has saved our time."

We got Donna's name from our daughter and son-in-law who used her to help buy their first home. She was so helpful to them as first time buyers, that it was an easy choice for us. Donna accommodated our out of town status and was available to show us homes when we came in town. She made the whole experience so pleasant and easy. She is fun to be with, but is also professional and knows the area and the market. I highly recommend her.

"Donna went above and beyond what was expected of her. Was working with a for sale by owner house and she helped them out more than what was necessary. Could not have asked for a better experience. "

"When you put the For Sale sign in my yard I thought, ‘oh boy how long will this take?’. You came and talked with me, gave me all the information I would need to understand just what selling my house was all about. What a wealth of knowledge you have when it comes to doing your job of helping your clients sell their house. Your pictures of the house were done in record time and I could see them on my computer the very next day. As you know the very first client you brought to see my house was the one who within a week or two decided to make an offer and in the course of a few days my house was no longer on the market. You kept in touch with me every day and any new information you thought I would need you were very prompt at forwarding it to me either by phone or by email. Thanks again Donna for being such a good worker and any questions I had you were able to answer without hesitation. "

—Dorothy Gear August 16, 2013


"Kudos to Donna! Our home was on the market for 2 years (during the worst of the real estate slump). Donna was our 3rd realtor and knowing what we now know, should have been our first. She did an incredible job. Very thorough, proactive, sincere and kind. She was such a pleasure to work with. Professional every step of the way. We would highly recommend Donna to anyone selling or buying a home.....and we have! "

—John and Sue May 26, 2013


"Thanks for all your advice, patience, effort and understanding it took to sell and close our house. I admire your professionalism and your enthusiasm for both finding our new home and selling our old house. It took a bit longer than we expected but now we really can begin to enjoy our new home. It was such a pleasure to work with you and we would both highly recommend you to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. Thanks again! "

—James and Lynn Plenzler April 26, 2013


"I am very thankful and grateful for the sincerity, kindness, patience and persistence of my realtor, Donna Friesner as she worked tirelessly with me to find my ideal home. Donna was my only choice when my life suddenly changed and I found myself going through a major personal transition. It had been a few years since we last spoke but I knew when I saw this particular listing I would call Donna. And so, I called her out of the blue on a Sunday morning and without hesitation she welcomed the call and offered to check on it right away. By 3 that same afternoon we were doing a walk-thru. I first had the pleasure of working with Donna a few years ago when she listed and sold my 80 year old mother’s home in Perrysburg in just a few short months during the early stages of the economic downturn. That experience left no doubt that I would recommend Donna to all my friends, never expecting that I would call on her for my personal needs. Donna listened to my dream as well as my budget and from there she put together a marathon search to find the right home, the right price, and the right amenities as well as a few unexpected finishing touches that she knew I would like. Throughout the entire process, she listened, she was patient, understanding and she found the time, as much time as I needed, to look and then look a little more. And she didn’t stop there. Donna steered me in the right direction to secure a mortgage, make sure all my questions and concerns were answered and arrived at closing to make sure any nervous jitters were set to rest. Donna is truly the best realtor in northwest Ohio and I would recommend her to anyone seeking to list or sell their property. Thank you Donna Friesner! Thank you! "

—Kathy Gries December 12, 2012


"Donna was great! Being a first time home buyer, I'm not ashamed to admit the process is a little daunting. While looking for a new home, Donna was more than patient. I never felt like I was being hurried at all. After finding the right home, Donna walked me through the whole process. I never felt like i was surprised at anything that came up along the way. Thanks Donna!"

—Chris October 24, 2012


"Donna’s knowledge of the market and expansive network allowed our transition to NW Ohio to be extremely successful. When you combine that with her work ethic, integrity, and interpersonal skills she becomes the greatest asset you can have when making one of the biggest decisions in your life. We love our new home and Donna took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for and then spent the necessary amount of time to find it. She not only is passionate about what she does, but truly cares for her clients and their interests. You are always in good hands with Donna and will not be disappointed in her services. "

—Jennifer and Kevin Sancraint October 4, 2012


"It was stressful trying to sell our house but the best thing we did was having Donna as our realtor. She was pro-active all through the process; keeping us regularly inform of the market and gave us useful feedback/advise . Donna is knowledgable of the market and knew how to market our house to the best advantage. She goes above and beyond her duty as a realtor."

—Linda Schutzer October 1, 2012


"One thing about having lived in Perrysburg over the past twenty years, we have had the chance to meet a lot of wonderful people. When it came time to sell our home and purchase a new down sized version, there were a number of people that we considered. While my wife and I considered a number of different realtors, ultimately we decided to give Donna a shot at finding a home for us. Donna did an incredible job for us. Not only did she enable the process to go really smoothly, she certainly helped us to relax during the process. She was a wonderful comfort, particularly to my wife. Donna did a great job clarifying our wants and needs for our new home and translating that into properties to visit. I found it amazing how tireless she was in working towards showing us homes and finding us just the right one. She has precisely the work ethic that you would want to see in your realtor. Donna, you made a believer out of me. You provided us with the perfect mix of residential property know-how and a dose of compassion for our move. Thank you for your wonderful work. I recommend you above all realtors in the community."

—Mike and Janey McIntyre September 20, 2012


"I can't be more impressed with our first home buying experience, thanks to our amazing realtor. Donna always had our best interest in mind and was not afraid to advocate on our behalf to ensure that we got exactly what we wanted in our home. It was reassuring to find a realtor we could truly trust and her level of expertise topped it all off."

—Chris Faber and Jessie Sutton September 21, 2015


"We thought Donna was a great realtor when we accepted an offer two days after our house was listed. I KNEW she was amazing after she went to war for us when there was an error with our home appraisal. She knows the market, the area and is absolutely sensitive to the needs of her clients. I wish I had known her when I was a first time home buyer, but I am grateful that I know her now. I have absolute faith in her knowledge and ability to get things done, I would take advantage of her services again in a heartbeat."

—Desiree and Michael White July 20, 2015


"Donna was amazing. We began looking for a home six months before we were planning to move. She was very responsive, professional, and patient with us as we looked. She did not get exasperated with us for even after several house hunting trips. She made sure we did not over pay for the house we purchased and made sure we took the steps needed to ensure that the house we were buying was in good condition. Donna was our first introduction to Ohio, she made sure we felt welcome in our new community."

—Michelle Wallace July 23, 2015

—Ron and Tara Walton July 13, 2015


"We have worked with Donna for a few years trying to find the right house in what was a very tight housing market. At times we found ourselves getting discouraged but Donna was always there to lift we hopes. In the last month the right house came on the market and we were able, with Donna's expertise, to close the deal within days. Donna had the Lending and Closing contacts to smooth out the details for us, since we haven't purchased a house in 35 years. When we are ready to sell our house, Donna will be our realtor. "

—Bob and Paula Marczak June 13, 2015

—Doris Henline June 15, 2015


"Donna was amazing! The process was painless, smooth and quick. We accepted a bid within the first days of us listing the home.

I would recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy or sell their home. "

—Bob and Gina May 20, 2015


"Working with Donna was an AWESOME experience in finding our first home. Donna is very knowledgeable about the area and she thoroughly guided us as we were new to the area. She is very proactive who always likes to stay on top of things. She even reached out us when we were out of country for a month. Whenever we needed any suggestion or information, she was super quick in responding. Since we were first time home buyers, we did not have any idea where to start and Donna was very patient in explaining everything to us. We looked at a large number of houses, and Donna was always enthusiastic and prompt to schedule a showing. She has tremendous knowledge about the local real estate market and helped us in accurately assessing the property values and negotiating. I would strongly recommend Donna to anyone who is looking to buy a house in the area."

—Beda March 9, 2015


"Working with Donna being a first-time buyer was wonderful. She was very patient throughout the process and wouldn't let me settle for anything less than what was perfect for me.

— mivichu on Zillow September 11, 2013


"Donna was very patient with us as reviewed house after house over a period that stretched over two years. We are not the most savvy home buyers and she was very good about explaining when a property was over priced and when it was a good deal. She would quickly pickup on the quality of the building materials used when upgrades were done and the quality of the workmanship. She was quick to know about property values in the area and market trends. If she says a house won't last long on the market you can trust that it will be gone quickly. Donna was also very good at estimating the cost of repairs. She is very professional and fair. She is not one to try and low ball the seller. She does a lot of analysis to determine a fair offer and that makes the negotiation process a good experience. Donna kept me informed about new listings and would let us know if there was a house that showed much better in person that in the pictures that were available. I don't expect to move again anytime soon, but if we change our mind are first call will be to her."

"Donna Friesner was my agent for the purchase of a residence in Perrysburg. She came highly recommended by an acquaintance and proved to be well organized, very knowledgeable and straight forward. She made it a point to learn what we were looking for and then focused on the properties that were a good fit for us. She took careful note of our priorities (price, house condition/size, schools, distance to work, etc.) and narrowed the field to those properties which fit our requirements. As I was under considerable time pressure, Donna’s focus and organization allowed us to make best use of our time and within a few days we were able to narrow the search to two properties. She guided us through the byzantine intricacies of purchasing a home – she anticipated problems which would have caused major trouble had we not had her advice. Donna was generous with her time, returned phone calls & emails promptly and has helped us with some relocation issues which were beyond the scope of her duties as an agent. I would not hesitate to recommend Donna to anyone needing an agent in the greater Toledo area (and this comes from a grumpy curmudgeon who rarely endorses anything)."

"Our experience with selling our Mother’s condominium with Donna Friesner was excellent!!!!! From our very first contact just weeks after our Mother passed away we were pleased with Donna’s professionalism, compassion to our situation, and expert advice. Every suggestion that Donna made regarding improvements was “spot on”. She knows her market. Some of the things that we asked about she told us were not as important and the things she suggested more than paid for the investment in the increased sale price. Donna marketed the condo more than we even knew possible, using every web site and resource available. Donna kept in touch with us via email, phone calls, and text messaging. She responded to our every question and concern. We had an offer, very close to asking price, within a few short weeks. Even after the accepted offer Donna kept in close contact with us regarding our buyers financing, the inspection process and the actual closing. Having lived in Perrysburg my whole life, I know many realtors. Donna demonstrated that she is the very best!!!!! Her knowledge, winning personality, and professionalism made this experience so very positive. We will always be grateful to her for the job she did for our family. "

—Nancy Gates, Bob Dorn and Carol Dean October 22, 2014


"I was a first time home buyer, and knew nothing of any of the home buying process. I know only that I dreamed of having my own place. Donna stepped me through every process, from loan arrangements, to inspections, to closing with patience and a wonderful attitude. She was always available when I had questions -- no matter how basic or "stupid" those questions were. I can't recommend her highly enough!"

—Sara Anderson October 8, 2014


"We had to sell our home at the worst possible time of year (shortly after the new year). It was during the worst winter in the history of our area. But Donna job the job done! She managed to really market our home and took full advantage of every tool at her disposal. Within a few days of our listing, the requests for showings came in. I'm happy to say that our house sold much faster than expected and Donna was completely supportive throughout the entire process. Her knowledge, compassion, and professionalism are top notch. I highly recommend Donna as a realtor and wouldn't hesitate to hire her again."

—Vicki Lowe September 19, 2014


"We had the pleasure of working with Donna on the listing and sale of our home. Once we met with her, we knew she had a good working knowledge of the area, as well as some great recommendations for improving the home before listing. With her help and advice, we sold our home 9 days after listing it, and with her expert negotiation skills, were able to sell the home for nearly the asking price! We highly recommend working with her."

—Jeff Seevers September 18, 2014


"Donna is a fantastic person and on top of that is an Outstanding Agent. She made the purchase of our home and sale of our previous one a great experience. We spent a lot of time looking for the perfect house for our later years and now that it's been a year since we moved we miss seeing our friend Donna! She is an honest, sincere, understanding and perceptive person and I would not ever hesitate to recommend her as your agent of choice. "

—Andy Carpenter September 17, 2014


"Donna helped our growing family find our DREAM HOME!! Donna is a gem to work with, truly for so many reasons. She's professional, friendly, courteous, hard-working, and has an unbelievable network of connections, and a strong knowledge of the industry and it all shows. She took the time to take us through several homes and really learn exactly what we were looking for. Donna's flexibility in meeting with us was much appreciated. She was patient in our search and driven to find us just that right fit! Using her impressive network of connections, she found us our dream home that was just coming onto the market! Thank you, Donna, for working with us-- a newly married couple with a baby on the way! We had time to get moved in and settle down before our new bundle of joy arrived, making it an absolutely enjoyable memory we will always treasure. Thank you!"

We had a tremendous response the first week it went up on the market and received multiple bids that same week. She went over the bids with us, and explained the process we would go through after accepting the offer. She kept us updated on the closing and the entire process went very smooth.

Donna was very helpful in assisting us to obtain an objective and obviously correct market price for our home. We felt the brochure about our property was very well done. Donna acted as a duel agent and we felt that she acted in a very professional and fair manner. She brought a calming force as we faced a few glitches. All in all she did a wonderful job! "

"I thought we have had some good realtors in the past and then we met Donna. From the first day we discussed putting our house on the market (which we weren’t sure of), she never pushed us but patiently waited for us to be ready. She offered honest thoughts and ideas, which came from years of experience and saved us time and money! We felt like we could trust the people she referred and the opinion she had. Not to mention we sold our house overnight and are now in the process of building a villa. Thank you Donna for the care you showed in our future – we are excited to be on this path! "

"We recently had the pleasure of working with Donna Friesner, to both list our home and help us purchase a new one. I was truly amazed at the amount of time and dedication Donna put into selling our home. I feel she used every resource available to market our home. Because of this we sold our home not only in a short period of time, but at great price. When looking for a new home, Donna really listened to us, and had a very good understanding of what we were looking for in a new home. She helped us find the perfect house, and we couldn’t be happier with it. I strongly recommend Donna to anyone I know looking to sell or purchase a new home. Not only does she have immense knowledge of the housing market but was a pleasure to work with. "

—Bill and Theresa Dhondt November 21, 2013


"Donna's work ethic and personal drive to help us find a home was immensely appreciated. She is a true professional who will work with a sense of urgency to help her clients."

—Joe Labadie May 9, 2013


"Donna is a true professional who I would use again without hesitation, which is the strongest endorsement I can make."

—Bob June 3, 2013

—Mandy McDaniel June 20, 2013


"My wife and I found working with Donna to be a great experience. She was very easy to work with and was always very accommodating. She stayed in contact through out the whole process and was very prompt with phone calls, emails, or texts. Would highly recommend her."

—John June 25, 2013


"Donna was very friendly and a joy to work with. She has a great knowledge of houses and small things to look for when buying a home. Her knowledge of the area is strong and will work diligently to help you to find not only the best house, but the right house for you."

—Randy Cano November 17, 2013


"Donna is an accomplished professional and a great person! Not easy to find someone who is top notch in their field as well as being honest, ethical and caring. She worked to find the right home for us in area that did not have many houses for sale. Donna knows the business from A - Z and works hard for her clients. We would recommend her highly whether it's buying or selling your home!"

—Steve and Kathy Kirwen November 6, 2013


"Donna Friesner worked with us to sell our home in West Toledo and buy a new one in Sylvania Township. She was conscientious with all of the details and gave sound advice in this important decision making process. Our new home was bank owned, and Donna was persistent in contacting the necessary people to make sure our transaction took place in as timely of a manner as possible. She did not try to talk us into anything that didn’t match the needs and desires we expressed. Donna is a warm and caring realtor who included our whole family into this adventure. We highly recommend her as a real estate broker."

—Tamie and Arnold Cruz October 9, 2013


"She found us just what we were looking for.Her professionalism and knowledge of the area and the realty field was key to us purchasing our home at the price we needed. She was articulate, kind and very personable, and I consider her a friend.I praise God for her. "

—Candace and Brian September 4, 2013


"Donna was dynamite. Her fast response times throughout the day, reliability, working knowledge and know how of the area was really helpful in helping our family in the stressful and emotional event of buying a house. Thanks to Donna she truly made our home buying experience worry free. We will definitely use Donna again and will recommend her to friends and family. "

—Andy and Meghan Keaton June 16, 2013


"We were first-time home sellers, and Donna clearly and calmly laid out our options. Selling in this market isn’t exactly a fun proposition. But Donna was hopeful and realistic at the same time. She helped us price our home well, which definitely brought in prospective buyers. She was helpful with staging and suggestions about how to maximize the space we had. And she wasn’t disparaging of our home’s blemishes – or what sellers might call its ‘charm.’ When we were surprisingly faced with two bidders, Donna helped us safely navigate the counterbidding waters to our advantage. We sold for slightly above our asking price…no small feat in this economy. More than anything, Donna was responsive, supportive, and calm during what was a stressful time for us. We feel so fortunate to have had her steady and experienced hands steering the ship of home selling. We were able to close on our house at about the same time we moved to a new state. We’re immensely grateful that it worked out, and we’re especially grateful for Donna’s guidance and skill."

—Tori & Chris Ekstrand October 19, 2012


"We were refered to Donna by a close friend who said she was very effective and very nice. Well, after working with her for the purchase of our home we can not only validate that but also say that she is very professional, always following up on the process and providing all her expertice. We definetely felt very comfortable working with her and would recommend her without a doubt. "

—Veronica & Enrique Morante September 14, 2012


"My Realtor- Knowledgeable, caring compassionate, dedicated, and hardworking are the words that come to mind when we think of Donna Friesner. Workingwith Donna Friesnerwas an enjoyable experience. Our family recently relocated to the area from Texas, and Donna helped make the transition a lot less stressful. She familiarized us with the area as we looked at homes and made several suggestions for family friendly outings. She addressed any and all concerns we had duringthe home buyrng process and continues to reach outto us today (months after our closing). If and when the time comes to buy or sell another home, we will definitely be calling Donna Friesner to be our realtor. "

—Josh & Joannie Villegas September 17, 2012


"Working with Donna as our agent was like working with family. She exemplified a true buyer's agent and understood what we wanted in a home for our family. Donna made the home buying process comfortable and enjoyable. When we found our house, she was assertive and made a sometimes difficult process run smoothly."

—Nicole and Jason Baden September 11, 2012


"Donna Friesner is the best! I have worked with other realtors before but will never work with anyone but Donna in the future. She truely cares about finding the house that is best for you. At every step of my home-buying experience Donna was there answering my questions and made it easy and enjoyable. I would highly reccomend Donna Friesner to anyone selling or buying a home."

—Kelsi S September 10, 2012


"Bonnie and I would be happy to recommend Donna Friesner to anyone selling or purchasing a home in our area. We found Donna to be very helpful in the sale of our home in a tough market and look forward to working with her in the future. We especially appreciated her thoughtfulness, her knowledge of the market, her meeting her commitments to us from appointments, to showings to marketing, and her assistance with minor repairs to bring a tentative sale to a Closing. "

—Bonnie and Ike August 14, 2012


"In April of 2012 I met with Donna Friesner to talk about selling my early 1900's farm home in Perrysburg, I was concerned with the age and some of the wear of the house that it would take some time to sell. However, at the meeting, Donna was great about walking my through my house and pointing out areas of improvement and little things that I could do to make my house more "show-worthy," she also referred a wonderful flooring company who refinished my distressed hardwood floors for a reasonable price and they did an excellent job. Before the house was even listed, Donna had multiple showings to prospective buyers. Donna was also very easy to contact, whether via email, text, or phone calls whenever I had a questions. When the house went under contract, Donna was extremely helpful in alleviating my worries and answering my questions about FHA, home appraisals and inspections and she really worked hard to provide me with the best support when the buyer's inspections company created some problems around the house. On the day of closing Donna was not able to make it because our title agency booked the appointment at the last minute but she made sure she sent a Danberry representative to sit with me through the closing (which was painless on my part). I would most definitely recommend using Donna Friesner for any of your realty needs, when my boyfriend and I purchased our new house last month I wished Donna was willing to travel to help us with the process since working with her on selling my home had been such a smooth process. "

—Meghan Matthews August 9, 2012


"We just want to let everyone know what a GREAT agent Donna is. We were relocating and had to leave our house while we were in the process of selling it. Needless to say it was an inconvenience going back and forth to take care of matters at the house; this is where Donna went above and beyond her duties as an agent. We were so appreciative for the assistance she provided that made our relocation and the sale of our house not as stressful as it could have been. As for the sale of our house, she came in and made great suggestions regarding affordable changes that we could make to the house that would make it more appealing; she was right on the ball with all the suggestions, the house sold within a few months. We wish she was here at our new location to help us find our new house. You will not go wrong having Donna as your agent. Thanks again Donna. "

—Rob and Suzanne Piggery August 7, 2012


"My family recently relocated from Tennessee to Ohio. Donna Friesner was assigned to us as our agent to assist in finding our new home. I am so grateful for the time, attention, and care Donna took in not only house hunting, but making connections and navigating our new surroundings. Moving to a new city and not having friends and family close can be very overwhelming. However, Donna went above and beyond her role as agent, not only helping us find a perfect home to suit our family, but also becoming someone I can count on- a friend. "

—Jennie Schultz July 27, 2012


"I was introduced to Donna through my company O-I and the relocation process. In fact, she was assigned to me and I am forever grateful! Donna has considerable knowledge about the area and more importantly she listened to my needs. My cross-country move from Portland Oregon and my landing in Ohio was made easier by working with Donna to find my new home. In fact, I did find the most perfect place for me with her help. She pushed my thinking gently about what could work and fit me. And then she found it! Donna is an expert, with clear integrity and she is fun as well! I have already personally recommended Donna to another colleague relocating to the area. They had a great experience too. She is terrific. Thanks Donna again and again! "

—Saga Shoffner July 27, 2012


"I can't tell you how much we love our new home!!! I also can't thank you enough for being such an awesome realtor. You have helped make our dreams of being home owners and our family being happy here come true. Thank you so much. Kat Coyle"

—Bill and Kat Coyle June 28, 2012


"I just want to thank you for the superb job you did in selling Dad's house so quickly. We couldn't be any happier with the time line and the results."

—Tom Stoner April 16, 2012


"We went to an 'open house' in our neighborhood, not looking to buy, but to see how the couple had remodeled this previously run-down home! While the home was truly beautiful on the inside, we found their realtor..Donna...to be so as well. She was professional, but welcoming and a genuinely warm-hearted person. As we left to return to our own home, I turned to my husband and said, "If we ever decide to sell, I want Donna to do it for us"! A few months later, we did indeed decide to put our home on the market. Even though we were given several different realtor options, there was no hesitation on our part about calling Donna to help us. She walked us through the process, offering suggestions, and just generally making it a comfortable experience. Our friends & family thought we were crazy when we decided to leave for our condo in Florida, and let Donna handle everything while we were gone! We had no qualms about leaving our home in her hands, and knew that she would keep us posted at every step in the sale. Little did we know that she would be calling us four days into our trip to tell us that an offer had been made! We were still on the road (having taken a longer, scenic route south), but she made sure that we knew exactly what was going on and what paperwork needed to be signed and/or faxed back to her. All we had to do from here was to relax on the beach, and wait for the closing date to be settled! Throughout our short time with Donna, we found her to be a truly warm, compassionate lady. She cared about selling our home in a manner that was best for us. My husband & I fully intend to recommend Donna for anyone interested in realty services. "

—Kathleen & Warren Mahaffey January 18, 2012


"We had a 60 year old home in a bad location, in this economy not a easy one to list. Donna did a wonderful job, we had many showings. She walked us thru everything and made the difficult very easy. Thank you, Donna!!"

—Sandy and Tim Kontak January 17, 2012


"Donna Friesner did an amazing job helping us to find our home. We reccomend her to all our friends who are looking to buy a home in the northwest Ohio area. She was friendly and genuinely interested in helping us find what we were looking for. "

—Stephen & Mandy Dull November 17, 2011


"I contracted with Donna after working for three months with another agent from a different company. I was extremely pleased with Donna during the time that she was working with me. She was very responsive, usually getting back to me within a few hours or a day at the most after I would call her. Donna brought me a good deal of listings to see even before I would find them online. She was very flexible in scheduling viewings of the listings and was very professional when we looked at the listings, pointing out many things in the houses that I viewed. When it came time to make an offer on a house, Donna helped by going over comparable listings to help figure out what to offer. She was fully engaged from the time that I contracted her until the time that I signed the papers on my new house! I would enthusiastically recommend Donna to anyone who asks me about realtors and will surely use her if I need a realtor again! She was the best and made the process enjoyable and I really enjoyed working with her! "

—Peter Szymanski October 31, 2011


"Donna was very thorough and had a complete grasp on all of the numbers, comparables and made the transaction easy. I would highly recommend Donna for any of your real-estate needs. "

—David Bishop October 27, 2011


"We moved from Melbourne, Australia into Toledo, Ohio with all the expectations that such move can create. Donna came as recommended full hands-on person on real-state knowledge and passionate service. She delivered to the expectations and made a big difference in our experience settling in. I do recommend donna as a great proffesional with an excellence balance between integrity and passion on her work."

—Miguel Yanez August 29, 2011


"I had been renting for years even when I could afford a home. I just tried to avoid hassles associated with home purchase. I am an immigrant to this country who was not familiar with home purchase. I am a busy R&D manager with very limited time that I can afford. Plus with the current economy, who knows whether home investment is a good idea. These all changed with Donna. Understood that I did not have much knowledge on home purchase, she went through all details with me in great patience. We spent a lot of time together researching for houses. Sometimes we could visit the same house 2-3 times. When we finally found a house that I really liked, she helped negotiate a good deal substantially lower than the asked price. Through her referral I was also able to find a great mortgage rate. I was a little hesitated when I first decided to become a home owner. And today I could not be happier with my beautiful new home. It is such a great residence and a good investment to my money. I could not appreciate Donna more who helped me realize my American dream! "

—Gang Xiong August 14, 2011


"We recently sold our home of 20 yrs with Donna Friesner at Danberry. I have known Donna for quite a while and knew that she would be the perfect person to handle the sale of our home. She was very helpful in helping us to get our house ready and offered suggestions on the best way to show our place. Donna’s attention to every detail is impeccable and we highly recommend her if considering a sale or purchase. Our house was listed in February of 2011 in what was termed as a very difficult market. Donna’s knowledge of the market and the surrounding area helped us to list and get a very fair price for our house. We were extremely surprised at the amount of activity and interest in our house. We had a signed offer in 14 days and closed in just 45 days! Not only do I consider Donna a friend but I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to move. Thanks Donna!"

—Jerri & Jerry Reitzel June 19, 2011


"Donna Friesner with Danberry Realtors was excellent to work with! Donna worked hard at getting the best listings to me fast and frequent! For a first-time home buyer, Donna helped me through the process by answering all of my questions and informing me of how the process works. Donna also would call me frequently to see if I had any questions while looking, during sale and after closing. All in all Donna Friesner was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable and an excellent representation of Danberry Realtors."

—Bryan Henry June 22, 2011


"Buying a home can be a long and tedious process, especially when you do not know the process…The Company where I work transferred me with my family from my country to the US few years ago and as a first time home buyer in the US I was really nervous about the unexpected costs and obstacles we could have during this process. Fortunately, we found the person that helped us to go through all this process without any issues. Donna helped us to find the house we were looking for. She is very honest and more than a realtor, she is a professional that enjoys working with the people. She made our first time home buyer experience nice and easy. We really appreciated everything that she did for us. We are very happy with our house… If you are looking for the house of your dreams, we highly recommend Donna to help you… We already have two months living in our beautiful house and she is still keeping in touch to be sure that everything is going well… Thanks Donna."

—Victor Reveron June 24, 2011


"Donna was my agent as we worked through an extremely challenging and complex home purchase. Through the process she was always highly available, personable, and had expert knowledge of every step. She is also well connected with an impressive network. We used two professionals she recommended to great effect. I can honestly say that with out Donna's expertise and hard work, the purchase would have been next to impossible. She pulled it off brilliantly."

—Larry Hinz June 15, 2011


"In May of 2010, I noticed a house that went on the market and sold within 3 weeks by realtor Donna Friesner! I was amazed, especially since the economy was still in recovery and the house was within a block of my Mom’s house. My 79 year old mother was seriously considering putting her home on the market so I suggested we call the realtor that had just sold the house right around the corner in such a short time! I called Donna and she came to her home, sat with us, patiently listened to Mom’s concerns about being on a fixed income and making a move without knowing how quickly it could all happen. Mom’s greatest concern was her fixed income status and her fear of how she might end up paying on 2 places at once for an extended period. How would she ever be able do that? Donna brought a level of professionalism, patience and expertise to our very first meeting that put my Mom at total ease and Mom made the decision to move forward and the house sold within 90 days! We were so thrilled with the results and the seamless process Donna brought to the experience. I would most certainly recommend Donna and her expertise to anyone and continue to share her name with friends and family members. I’ve never met anyone that has the ability to get these kinds of results in such a challenging economy like Donna. Thank you so much Donna!"

—Kathy Gries & Mildred Montgomery December 28, 2010


"Thank you for all of your help and patience! The house is beautiful and we just love it!"

—CL December 15, 2010


" As with anything, the difficulty and stressfulness of a situation is greatly influenced by the parties involved. Fortunately for us, we were lucky enough to have chosen Donna to represent us in the purchase of our new home. As current homeowners, we had been through the process of purchasing a home before, and it was much more stressful and the process was much more drawn out the last time (without Donna). Donna's level of professionalism and commitment to her client's is second to none, and is rivaled only by the care and attentiveness she has in the handling of her relationships with her clients. We have chosen her to sell our first home as well, and look forward to another pleasant and successful transaction. She came to us as a referral, and I'd be willing to refer her to anyone, regardless of the size or type of the transaction. Thanks Donna!"

—Zach and Megan Dunn December 6, 2010


"As a first-time home buyer, Donna took the time to listen to and really answer any and all questions I had during my buying experience. It didn't matter how big or small the question was, I knew if I called or email her, I'd get a quick response. I really appreciated the fact that if I didn't like something, she wasn't going to waste our time by trying to 'sell' me on it anyways. I would definitely recommend Donna to any of my friends and acquaintances if they were looking for a realtor! "

—M.M. December 12, 2010


"Donna made sure that everything started right in our house sale, which resulted in the ultimate sale itself. She made sure there were plenty of pictures (and spent time making them the best, least cluttered and house-representative she could), kept us apprised of the situation frequently and even spent time helping me clean out my daughter's room. It was a pleasure to work with her. "

—Liz Larson-Shidler November 6, 2010


"Donna was fantastic to work with, especially as a first time home buyer. She was patient, and very helpful. She made the potentially very stressful experience of moving to my new home much easier. For that I am extremely thankful!"

—Nick P. November 10, 2010


"Donna, We are loving our new home. After the fire, all we could think about was having our own place again, and with your help and hard work, that dream became a reality. It just feels like this has always been home. We are so blessed and grateful. "

—Pleda & Kiplyn Phommalee October 28, 2010


"I had limited experience with Real Estate agents, and I lived 125 miles away from Perrysburg when I found it necessary to sell my Mother's home. Donna Friesner was the answer to my prayers. Within a short seven weeks from listing to closing, Donna was able to list, show, and sell the home to a qualified buyer! She kept me updated on the results of every showing and open house. She helped me establish and reasonable and attractive price. She was easy to reach at all times and was always friendly when I called or e-mailed. She made a difficult task a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Donna to all prospective buyers or sellers."

—Mary S. Sanders October 25, 2010


"I met Donna a number of years ago when I taught fitness classes at the YMCA. She was the first realtor I thought of when my husband accepted a job transfer to Pittsburgh, PA and we knew we had to sell our house. We were a bit nervous about selling our home given market conditions in late 2009. We did have a company buy-out, but did not want to resort to accepting their offer which would have been much lower than market value. Donna did a wonderful job for us! She advised us on what cosmetic changes would make the home show well (without costing us a lot of money), held numerous open houses and was quick to follow-up and get feedback from showings which she promptly relayed to us. When an offer did come in, her expertise and advice helped us negotiate a great price for the home. She also did a fabulous job dealing with our relocation company, was knowledgeable about the process and followed up promptly to make sure all necessary paperwork was taken care of. My husband and I would definitely recommend Donna to anyone looking to sell their home! Thanks Donna for your expertise and caring attitude."

—Michael and Joan Rainwater October 19, 2010


"Donna was a great help to our home search process. We initally started our search in Perrysburg, but then expanded our areas of interest. We went from look at older homes with lots of charm to homes on a golf course. She provided us with detailed information each time we asked for something different. When we finally found the "right" one, she patiently helped us through the bidding and buying process, which resulted in a new home for us!! We would highly recommend her to anyone searching for a home in the Perrysburg or surrounding areas!"

—Kelly & Daniel Steyer May 21, 2009


"We highly recommend Donna as your new realtor. Believe us - she's definitely patient. It took us over a year and a half to find our dream house, and she was there every step of the way. She's tireless and willing to help you in your house search in any way that she can. She has extensive experience, and if she doesn't know something she'll find out for you in no time. On top of that, she's one of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. "

—Jim and Anne Close July 26, 2009


"When we were looking to buy a bigger home, Donna Friesner was recommended by a friend. She listened to what we wanted and didn't waste our time showing us homes we wouldn't have been interested in. When the home we chose was a bank repossession with other bidders, we counted on Donna's experience to help us make the winning bid. She navigated us through a complex closing process and kept a smile on our faces. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home! "

—Dr and Mrs James R Perry May 3, 2010


"Donna is truly one of a few "premier" realtors in Northwest Ohio. What is especially admirable about Donna is how she personally cares for her clients, treating them as partners on the complicated and serious journey of buying and/or selling a home. Donna really listened to what we wanted in a new home, and took the time to find out more about our personal needs. Her knowledge of the market, availability and quality of service were outstanding and that made us feel confident through the entire process. Donna helped us find a home that we truly love, and also worked very hard on the selling side, finding a buyer for our home in less than 30 days. One of the things that we especially admire about Donna is her expertise and "eye" for what really needed to be done to get our home ready to sell. She was straightforward and honest in her analysis of the improvements we needed to make and those that we didn't. We followed her advice and as Mike said early on - "I'm going to stop questioning Donna. She's knows what she's doing, and she's right." Our entire buying and selling process was less than 4 months from the time we started looking at homes until we moved. We highly recommend Donna and consider her a friend, trusted advisor and one of the best in her field. "

—Mike & Alice Momenee May 26, 2010


"My wife Jenn and I bought a home in the summer of 2010. We used Danberry Reality and worked with Donna Friesner. We were first time home buyers and did not know how the process of buying a home worked and honestly a little nervous with buying our first home. Donna made the whole process easy and fun. Donna is a very energetic and caring person to work with. Within the first month of working with her she helped us find our current home. She was able to understand what were looking for and went out of her way on her spare time to accomplish this. Danberry Reality is truly a great place to use to find your home. They are very professional and caring to their customers. I would highly recommend using Donna as your real-estate agent in finding your home. My wife and I could not be happier in our new home or with the process of finding and buying the home. They really made the whole process fun!"

—Chase & Jennifer Belza June 20, 2010


"I would like to thank you so much for all your hard work and perseverance! Finally, I have the perfect house! Although we looked at countless homes, you always had a sincere smile and was very encouraging when I felt that it just wasn't going to happen. I definitely would recommend you to anyone requesting a real estate agent. Again, thank you so much for your professionalism. You are an asset to your company! "

—Mary (Sue) Sosko July 18, 2010


"Donna is not only a great realtor, she is also a great person. My husband and I were wanting to sell our small 900 sq. ft. home in a very small town, in a not so great market. You would have thought we were her biggest client! She went above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done. Our house sold less than a month after the sign went up!! I also know Donna on a personal level and she is the real deal! She has so much integrity, and is one of the most genuine people I know. I am honored to know her and to have worked with her. "

—Andrea & Jason Brouwer December 9, 2009


"I cannot begin to say what an asset Donna is to Danberry Realtors. This is the second time we have had the pleasure of having Donna help us find a home and I would highly recommend her to anyone shopping for a home in the Toledo area. Donna was dedicated to helping us find the home that was perfect for us and the consummate professional in every aspect of our search. Even when we had some "complications" in our process, she was steadfast and guided us through. Donna has become a friend as well as my realtor. She's a pleasure to know and work with! "

—Sandy & Bill Brown May 21, 2010


"Donna made a very intimidating process enjoyable. She was instrumental in assisting my husband and I with purchasing our first home. She is extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of the home buying process. Her referrals were top notch in every instance. I feel we not only gained a wonderful home but a great friend by working with Donna."

—Nikki & Bob Nichols April 26, 2010


"We were first time home buyers and I had done a online search for real estate agents in our area and Donna was our lucky pick. We met with her not knowing much at all and she was great answering our many many questions and helping us with anything and everything. Countless homes, different areas later she helped us find "the house". Bob, Hayden and I had such and wonderful experience with Donna and I will recommend her to anyone looking for a house. You want a real estate agent with the knowledge Donna has it! "

—Jessica, Bob, & Hayden April 26, 2010


"Our association with Donna covered a span of almost a year and 300 miles (New Jersey)....without a single face to face contact. Through phone calls and e-mails Donna was able to identify both our "needs" and "wants". Being an accomplished realtor she was then able to study the market and e-mail listing forms of homes that fit both our size and price parameters. Phone calls took care of all the "fill in" questions. At the end of that year when we finally made the actual move from New Jersey to Ohio we had narrowed our home search down to six properties. The second highlight of our move was finally meeting Donna Friesner. I had a feeling from our many phone calls that she would be easy to work with. My "feelings" were a gross understatement. Donna is a true professional in every sense, a take charge time manager and an absolute pleasure to work with. I am buying my 10th home so I know a little bit about good and poor realtors. Within ten days of arriving in the Toledo area we had literally purchased a home. Much of the timeliness of this success must be attributed to Donna's personal attention and research. Thanks Donna! "

—Richard and Bonnie Kachure March 4, 2010


"Donna Friesner is a first class agent who is not afraid to defend the interests of her clients. After our offers were rejected for two different homes my wife and I were ready to give up but Donna helped us discover a wonderful home that we had overlooked. Once we found the home she worked tirelessly to help us secure the loan, negotiate the terms (with out of state owners) and complete the purchase. Though we’ve been in our home for over two months, Donna continues to offer her help through contractor referrals and info on free tax credit and home related seminars. Donna is more than a great realtor agent, she’s a friend."

—Dan and Janelle Nowowiejski February 15, 2010


"Donna Friesner shines with all the best qualities of an exemplary real estate agent. Her comprehensive market knowledge coupled with strong negotiating skills helped me sell my house in a very tough market. She’s also a good communicator with detailed follow-through going the extra mile throughout the buying or selling process. And Donna is super friendly. Gotta move? Move over to Donna!"

—Sara Stevens March 25, 2010


"Donna was wonderful! We moved here from western Massachusetts, and did not know the area at all. Donna really took the time to understand our family's needs and what we were looking for in a house. She was extremely knowledgeable and helped guide us through the whole process - most of which was done from out-of-state. We highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor who is experienced, honest, and professional. We appreciate all the hard work she has done for us. Best of all, we absolutely love our new home. It's just perfect for us. "

—Mike and Cathy T January 25, 2010


"We had a couple of different realtors before we met Donna.  They would come late to appointments, not return phone calls, and just made you feel pressured which was very stressful and took out the fun of finding a home.  It was actually a breath of fresh air when we met Donna.  As first-time homebuyers we were lucky to get a realtor who loves and enjoys her job.  We had no idea what it entailed or what steps were involved.  Donna guided us throughout the whole process and answered all of our questions.  She took the time to work around our schedules no matter if it was the late evenings or the weekends.  She would always return our calls and if she didn't have an answer to something she would find out an answer and call us back quickly.  Donna is more to us than a realtor she is a friend.  We've recieved e-mails from her asking us how we've been and how our new home is.  We couldn't ask for a better realtor.  We would recommend Donna to anyone buying or selling a home and would definitely love to work with her again in the future.  Thanks again for everything.  "

"I have worked with many realtors over the years and have never met someone like you. You are truly one of a kind. I feel that you went way beyond my expectations and showed me an entirely different "sales person". I was so overwhelmed with the entire process of buying a foreclosure and trying to help my daughter and grandchildren; but you were there pushing through all the confusion and miscommunications for us. They are in their home now, and it is so great to see their smiles of delight that they have a "home" that is all theirs. Thanks-doesn't cover everything you did for us. "

"Donna is a true professional who helped keep things positive for us when the outlook did not seem so bright. We could always count on her to be there for us at any given time. Her devotion to her job is second to none. I would use her again or highly recommend her to anyone in need."

—Brent and Andrea Dhondt November 29, 2009


"We had first approached Donna to assist in the selling of our home. Her experience in the real estate industry and professionalism shined as we sold our home in a very short period of time. We then knew that she was an obvious choice to help us buy a new home. Donna immediately began searching out homes that met our needs. She was a huge help through the home buying process. I saw Donna work on both sides of the real estate transaction, both buying and selling, and I couldn't have imagined working with anyone else. She made us feel so comfortable through the whole process and we knew she was truly working for us. Donna will forever be the only agent I contact for my real estate needs and I would recommend her to anyone. "

—Kyle Turnow and Becky Call November 12, 2009


"In every occupation, there are the “goods” and the “greats.” As a retired teacher, I always regarded the “goods” as those that met all requirements and taught the required skills, but a “great” teacher was one who tried to meet the needs of each individual and was not afraid to go above and beyond to meet individual needs. In my book, Donna Friesner is a “great” realtor. She put her heart and soul into helping me sell my villa. Not just because she wanted to make a sale, but because she wanted to do what was best for me financially and emotionally. Donna was not only my realtor, but she became my encourager and a true and loyal friend. I feel very fortunate to have had her as my realtor because I know she will continue to be there for me even after the sale is closed. I would recommend Donna to anyone who is in the process of buying or selling a home. I can say, without any reservation, that I know that Donna will give each and every client her very best just like she did for me. Donna Friesner is truly a “great realtor. Thank you, Donna! "

"Working with Donna throughout the home buying process was a true pleasure. As first time homebuyers, her professional advice and guidance was extremely helpful. From evaluating each house we walked through to drafting our offer, she was there every step of the way, simplifying the process and making it an enjoyable, memorable experience. The best thing about Donna is that she takes her job personally. She really got to know us so she could help find the best home for us, and went beyond our expectations as a realtor. We loved working with Donna and would be happy to recommend her to others who are buying or selling a home."

—Bill & Gina Sares September 19, 2009


"We used Donna for the sale of our Mother’s home. Donna was on top of things from the very beginning. As our Mom had recently passed away, it was a difficult transition for us and Donna was there, detail oriented and on time. She did the things we just couldn’t do and showed the house frequently, and with vigor. The house sold in less than two months and in this economy it was a blessing. I would recommend Donna to anyone, who needs a well organized, detail oriented, and fully competent realtor. "

—Leslie Balber September 19, 2009


"We had moved here from Atlanta, Ga and wanted to be closer to our daughter and grandkids and with Donna's help she found us a home within minutes 15 of them. Our experience with her has also brought us a friendship that still goes on today. Thanks Donna for everything."

—Mary & Jerry Manista September 19, 2009


"Donna was incredibly helpful in the whole experience of preparing and selling my house.Her professional nature and sensitivity was reassuring during what could have been a stressful time for me as a single parent.We continue to maintain a lasting friendship.Thank you again."

—Sally Hartzell September 19, 2009


"The market of today is slowly declining, and the real estate industry has seen better days. I feared our house would not sell, but with the help of Donna Friesner from the Danberry Realtors, we were very satisfied with the short time it took to sell our house. Because of this, we are able to move on without having to worry about our old house. This is augmented with the help of our realtor, who never once failed to remain professional, patient, and supportive through the process. The process itself could be called efficient, with positive results. I would recommend Donna Friesner with Danberry Realtors to anyone trying to sell their house any day."

—Phung & Quang Hang September 19, 2009


"Working with Donna is a rewarding experience. We came to the area with no knowledge and Donna has a wealth of experience in this area, not just in real estate, but in all aspects of living in Perrysburg. We had lots of fun finding our home and then she was on top of every detail until closing. I still frequently call upon her when I need advice about shopping, doctors, or anything. When you work with Donna, you don’t just get a realtor, you get a friend."

—Michele Michalopoulos & Mark McGee September 19, 2009


"We were new to the area (from Michigan) and asked the main office for the most knowledgeable person and that's how we found Donna. Little did we know how knowledgeable and patient she was. After spending many weekends with her, we came to find out how much she loves her job and finding families their perfect home. Her experience and positive attitude make it easy for us to recommend her to anyone."

—Brian and Karen Dynda September 19, 2009


"Working with Donna Friesner was a great experience from start to finish! She was always ready and willing to show us as many houses as we needed and we never felt pressured to make a decision. Donna worked around our schedule, taking us on tours in the evenings and on weekends. She listened to what we wanted, respected our price range and gave good insight into local realty. When it came time to make a deal she handled all of the paper work for us, making the process painless. If you're looking to buy or sell a home, we would highly recommend Donna Friesner. In our opinion she is one of the best in the area! "

—Kaleb & Donnamarie P. September 19, 2009


"Donna Friesner helped me find my dream home in a great neighborhood. Working with her was a pleasure in the midst of a busy time. If you're looking for a home, give her a call."

—JoAnna Studer September 19, 2009


"We thoroughly enjoyed the whole home search experience with Donna. She listened to us and really tried to understand our needs. Being from out-of-town, she did a wonderful job of showing us the different areas and answering all of our questions. Donna has even kept us with us after the move to see how we've settled in. She has been a valuable resource and we feel very fortunate to have worked with her!"

—Brett & Anne Marie W September 19, 2009


"Donna is truly a professional. When I listed my house with her she guided me every step of the way and I sold my house in a few short weeks. I highly recommend her. "

—Bill Kriston September 19, 2009


"Our journey of finding the perfect home for our family was an amazing experience and we thank our realtor Donna for that. Without Donna, we would not be in our cozy home she had found for us. She worked very hard for several months, she would call us on the phone and email us when a house came on the market in the area we were looking, she would even say "let’s go look at this house," which I loved. Donna was always updating us on new information or even updating regarding the houses we were interested in. She walked us through each step from the little things on what location we were interested in and then the major part which was starting to make an offer. She went above and beyond her services in order to find us the right house. She was always open for questions and she was always there for new recommendations. Thank you for such an easy and wonderful experience, especially for our first home."

—Spencer and Betsy York September 19, 2009


"Our house is the 7th house we have purchased in about as many years due to job relocations. I would describe us as extremely demanding customers, very detail oriented and very short on time. Donna has the ability to meet these challenges in a professional, friendly, and productive way that is very rare in business let alone real estate. She made our relocation experience the best yet! Thanks for making a difference Donna! "

—Jay and Darlene Scripter September 19, 2009


"Our real estate transaction with Donna was a piece of cake. We got her business card from a trusted friend. When we met her, we found you to be friendly, experienced, and excited about helping us find the right home for our needs. She asked just the right questions to find out what we were really looking for. When we were house-hunting, she knew that we had pre-K kids. I liked how Donna explained the neighborhoods and their proximity to schools, parks, and other points of interest (sledding hills!). Donna was the right realtor for the job. Thank you for helping us find a home in Perrysburg."

—Kim and Nathan Newlove September 19, 2009


"Donna facilitated three transactions for my family during a period of only 90 days, selling two homes and purchasing a third. She was instrumental in assuring that we received the highest market price for both home sales, which included multiple offers on each. She saved us time and a significant amount of money by advising us on which improvements would help us sell our home, and which would be extraneous. She put us in touch with local contractors we needed for some of the work, all of whom we still do business with to this day. When purchasing our new home she facilitated a rather dynamic negotiations process, and was instrumental in securing a price which exceeded my expectations by every measure. She was very honest and professional during the entire process, and was able to communicate professional observations about the properties involved while leaving the ultimate decisions to me and my wife. I highly recommend her for both a buying and selling agent, especially in a difficult market. She is able to achieve in an environment where others are not."

—Nick & Mary Siefke September 19, 2009


"Donna helped us find the perfect home for our needs. She sat down with us and discussed what we were looking for. She totally understood what we wanted! The whole process was so painless. We're glad we switched agencies and ended up with Donna! LOVE our new house!"

"Five years ago I contacted Donna to help me find a home for my college bound children to live in. Being from out of state, I was not familiar with the area. My trust in her paid off when she steered me toward a home in a safe and family-friendly Maumee subdivision. After viewing the first few houses she was able to read my style and understood I was not looking for the "typical" college house. She continued to offer tips and information after your purchase. So naturally, this year when it became time to sell the house, I contacted Donna. She again delivered by selling my house within 3 days of listing!"

"Donna was, unfortunately, not our initial realtor. After a less than satisfactory experience with our initial selection, we hired Donna and were very happy with her performance. There was an immediate increase in the number of showings and prompt feedback from the showings. We had already left the area and were living 3 time zones away, but never had an issue with communication. When we needed some work done at the house, she provided good recommendations and her husband even provided oversight for some of the work performed. She also helped us through several trying issues with the prospective buyers. We highly recommend her selection."

"Donna was an agent for another house in our neighborhood and we ultimately picked her as our agent too because she had a lot of knowledge about the market, our area of town and believed our house held the market value we were hoping for. She did her research before the initial meeting and was very prepared to answer our questions and help pinpoint the "sweet spot" for price. We listed and our house sold at asking price within the first week on the market! We could not have been happier! Donna was great to work with, easy to get in touch with and handled all the showings as we were out of town. It was a great experience and we highly recommend her!"
