Donna obtained her real estate license in 2000 and became an active full-time Realtor in 2004. Donna specializes exclusively in residential real estate in the greater Salt Lake County area with an strong emphasis on the east side of the valley. Friends often tell her she eats, sleeps and breathes real estate.
Donna is an expert at understanding what buyers want and need in a home, and matching buyers to the perfect local city. Relocations and referrals make up the largest part of her business. Donna is one of the exclusive agents with the University of Utah Partners in Medicine relocation program and helps many doctors transition to Utah every year.
Donna is also focused and intent on helping each seller get the most money humanly possible out of the sale of their home. She feels communication and realistic expectations for the current market conditions are the key to success.
Before real estate, Donna was a marketing and communications specialist. She has worked in the newspaper, mortgage and healthcare industries. Donna is from Detroit, Michigan, and but has proudly called Utah home since 1996. She, her husband and son enjoy taking their dog around town — as well as reading profusely, gardening, traveling, hiking and boating. She is also active in her local Christian church community and assists many local Pastors in their moves.
Each client is truly an honor for Donna and real estate is truly her passion.
Each day is a blessing!
"I just love Donna!! It’s one thing to sell or buy a house, but when there are complications, Donna will step up and goes beyond the call of duty to get things done. Thank you so much!!"

"I would recommend Donna to anyone buying or selling a home. She is a hard-working realtor and knows the market very well. This makes her invaluable when negotiating and can make the difference between getting your offer accepted or not. She really cares about her clients and wants to make sure they are getting the right house for their needs at a fair price. I’ve worked with many realtors in 15 plus years as a loan officer, she is the one I most recommend! She helped us when we bought our home and without her as our realtor we most likely would not have had our offer accepted. Her diligence, experience, and hard work are beyond compare."

"My wife and I first met Donna four years ago when we were considering moving to Utah. We were referred to her by a friend, and let Donna know that we were not presently in the market, but would be in the future. Despite knowing we could not buy at that time, Donna spent several hours driving us around town, getting to know us and letting us get to know her and Utah! A long four years later, we were in position to buy, and Donna continued putting us first. She tirelessly scoped the market, found good options for us, and gave us honest feedback on homes that maybe were not a fit. She truly was our advocate in this crazy market. Even though our buying experiences had some bumps from the selling real estate team, Donna always gave us confidence in our path and found the perfect home for us. After our home buying experience with her, my wife and I consider her much more than our realtor, but our good friend!"

"Donna was the best realtor for us. In addition to her professionalism, her attentiveness to our individual circumstances allowed her to find the exact house that we needed. We have recommended her too many of our personal friends and would do the same for others."
