Donna Staten is an exceptional real estate agent. She sealed the deal with expertise and knowledge and in an extremely efficient manner. I had been working with another real estate agent prior to being referred to Donna Staten. My previous agent did not communicate as well, and it wasn't long before I realized that he did not have the experience needed to fulfill my dream of becoming a homeowner. Once I terminated my relationship with my former agent, it took less than two months for Ms. Staten to find a home which had all my "needs", win the bid and contract, and finally close. We laughed a lot during our business, and she always answered my questions and concerns in language the average joe could understand! She has many contacts and references for those unforeseen bumps in the road that may come up during the process. I have and will recommend Donna Staten to anyone, particularly someone like myself, a first time homebuyer. She is five stars!!
