""Donna worked with us for years as we casually looked for a new home. Anytime I saw a house that piqued my interest, she patiently took me out to see it knowing I most likely wasn't ready to buy. When we finally decided to move, Donna was there to guide us through the entire process. She hired an excellent photographer and gave us guidance on staging our home. And when we listed our house, we received two offers above asking." Stacy Thomas 474 S 4th St, Maplewood, NJ 07040 "
