Highly recommend Donna and her team if you are looking to sell your home, or purchase new. We met Donna in early 2020, right when we were considering selling our home. The process was overwhelming and very new to us. Donna took the time to walk us through the process steps, shared details about recent home sales in our neighborhood, and guided us in all of our questions. She spent time with us staging our home and getting it photo and "show" ready, and within 2 days, we had multiple offers. I always appreciated the interest Donna took in my family and I. She took the time to get to know us and asked about our concerns, and having that personal conne...— Denise D.
Donna Murray was a wonderful real estate agent. We felt that she was very knowledgeable about the area we were looking at and could offer us many valuable insights. She also was very helpful with the process. Donna was also always available. Finding a house can be stressful. It is especially stressful during COVID. Donna helped us through this process with great good nature and helpfulness. We are very happy with our new home.— Nancy A.
Donna's office helped us buy our modest, 2-bedroom house in 2014, and then we chose her to act as our agent when we sold in 2020. Donna was easily reachable, responded quickly, and offered good advice to prepare our house to sell. Donna also recommended reliable and affordable local contractors for several repairs. She made time for multiple in-person visits, helped with staging, and hired a professional photographer to do 360 interior and exterior photos and to shoot drone footage. Donna and her team made our house look absolutely terrific! When we received multiple offers, Donna helped us navigate the contract process all the way through closing. ...— Aaron L.
From our very first conversation with Donna, we knew she was the right realtor for us. I mistakenly called her cell phone, thinking I was calling her office line to leave a message. the problem was this was on a Sunday morning at 6 am. Donna not only answered the phone but came out that very day to meet with the family to discuss the sale. There are four siblings who had to agree with every decision to move the sale forward. Donna was able to " herd the cats", come up with a plan, and execute that plan, getting us a sale over the asking price. Donna worked with us to make good decisions on fixing the 55-year-old house to maximize the home's appeal, ...— Dennis K.
Donna did a wonderful job selling my townhouse. She was very responsive to all my questions and requests, and provided very good advice throughout the process. The final sale price was higher than my expectations. She also proactively took care of coordinating required inspections and repairs which made the process much easier for me. I would highly recommend Donna as a sellers agent.— Julie C.
Donna was very helpful in helping us stage and sell our home. She is very creative, knowledgeable, and professional. And she is also very passionate about her work. Thank you Donna!— Abed A.
Donna was amazing. This was not an easy property to sell. She overcame each challenge with expert knowledge and most importantly humor, as we were quite stressed. Donna brought us a buyer who was a perfect match for our home. We are happy knowing the neighborhood we loved has a wonderful new addition.— Chris G.
Donna Murray helped my family both sell our childhood home and buy a retirement house for our parents. There were many challenges along the way, and Donna was able to guide us through it and ease our stress. She is a wealth of knowledge, and both Donna and her team treat you like family. It's not just a transaction for them. We could not have gotten through both experiences without her.— Christina C.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Donna Murray to sell our home. She gave us excellent advice, remained super response throughout the process and and has created a close trusting relationship.— Richard E.
Donna had us work with Darlene Snyder — and she was a gem! We made a cross country move, and did most of the viewings on FaceTime with my daughter visiting the property. We met Darlene May 2019, did some in-person and a lot of on-line house tours. I got discouraged about finding what we needed. But Darlene never did. And when our house had a buyer in mid-August 2020, she helped us get the perfect house. She and my daughter saw the house on a Tuesday, and by Thursday we had the house. Darlene helped us make a fair bid and walked me through the process as we got to the closing. And it couldn’t be a better home, in a better location. It suits us perfec...— Claire H.
My wife and I recently sold our home using Donna Murray as our realtor. Throughout a two-year process (due to delays on the construction of our new home down South), Donna remained positive and patient, and she kept in touch to offer advice on the preparation of our house for sale and on changing real estate market conditions so that we would be ready when the time came to move. She was consistently knowledgeable, courteous, professional, and highly competent as she guided us through the steps of a home sale - - which we had not done for over 35 years. Throughout the entire process, she was responsive to our questions and concerns, empathetic to our...— Larry M.
My husband and I were pleased with the time and attention that we received from Donna and her team. She stayed in touch with us and advised as to decisions that we needed to make with regard to selling our home. With her suggestions, we worked to prepare our home for the sale, and were very pleased with the outcome.— Kathy F.
We selected Donna to handle the sale of our 5 bedroom home of 26 years and purchase of our "down-sized" 55+ community home... We could not have been more satisfied with the professional, responsive, courteous, and well networked service we received. She was candid with her advice at all times, yet always willing to consider our opinions and execute our decisions. In a fluctuating market she was undaunted in her efforts to accomplish a satisfactory outcome, which she did. We have no hesitation in recommending her services to others.— Fidelis M.
Donna is a superior agent. She is a pleasure to work with and is very knowledgeable about the real estate market. Her staging advice was 100% accurate. I would strongly utilize her services in the future.— Bernie S.
Donna was extremely positive through the whole selling process. Closing went smoothly without a hitch. She kept us informed along the way with recommendations of what to do next. She was prompt in answering any questions that arose.— Walter D.
Donna was positive and upbeat and readily accepted the challenge of listing my 100+-year old house in Trenton. I was impressed by her professionalism. Because we were moving right away, she handled helping us fix up the place, helping to price/find contractors, and ensuring they had access throughout. Once we got through that part, she staged, listed, and held some open houses. And to make a long story short, it didn't take long to find a buyer thanks to all that, even though it's not the hottest market. She and her colleague were indispensable in dealing with the City to get through all the paperwork and inspections... They definitely went above an...— Joshua L.
Donna was very patient with helping us buy our house. Our situation was a little difficult. We had a bad experience with our prior home and lots of problems to deal with. She helped us step by step with all the situations we had to go through. We were so happy to get the house we wanted. Thank you so much for everything you did for us.— Phuong L.
Donna Murray is an outstanding real estate professional whose expertise guided us through the stressful process of selling our home of 34 years. Donna is always available to honestly answer any and all of your questions either in person or by phone. She will patiently sit down with you and listen and discuss any and all of your concerns. Donna is there for you when you need her most. Her extensive knowledge of the trends in the current real estate market guaranteed us a smooth and successful sale. Within four days of listing our home, we received multiple offers, and we successfully closed on our home on a timeline that suited our situation. We most...— Nancy K.
Donna Murray did a fantastic job as the listing agent for the sale of our home. At our initial meeting, she provided a comprehensive summary of all listings in our community and how our house compared to others in our price range. She also helped us develop a strategy to make the house available during a two week absence, which included Donna being available during her family vacation. Her marketing materials were top notch, including overhead photos of our home using a drone. She created an excellent narrative that captured the excitement and feeling generated by our home and not just a laundry list of amenities. Throughout the showings, Donna’s in...— Joseph V.
Donna was unbelievably helpful with the sale of our home in Ewing Twp. We contacted Donna along with other agents in the area in preparation for selling our home in Ewing in order to join children and grandchildren in Colorado. Donna's presentation of what she and her team would provide were a clear winner of that search. When it came time to prepare the house for showing she had great suggestions along with a list of service providers that would aid in the process. We could not have been happier with the advertising provided and the flow of interested buyers was encouraging. When a valid offer came in and accepted Donna and her team set us up for a...— Bill & Roberta A.
Buying a house is both exciting and stressful. Selling your house is just plain stressful. We were very lucky to have chosen Donna Murray as our agent to help us through this process. Donna brought a lot to the table. First, she had great connections and a drive to get the deal done. This was extremely helpful since I was currently working on the west coast and she helped deal with any hiccups that we encountered during the house sale. Donna really made sure there are no title issues, inspection issues, etc. On top of all that, she helped us negotiate a good price in a bad market. We have been through this process several times and know if you can g...— Ron M.
Donna sold our Princeton home within the timeframe she predicted; and, for the full asking price. Her communication and negotiating skills were absolutely superb. She always kept us apprised of the situation; and, made our interests a top priority. We had an unfortunate experience with another well known local firm or agent before switching to Donna. Donna does not merely list a house and then sit back and wait for a sale. She will market your home aggressively and stay engaged every step of the way. She is well connected to the top producers network of Mercer County. This is a huge plus as she works among the best professionals to get a sale done. ...— Tina & Hugh D.
Exceptional Agent. Great knowledge of local markets and great service. Donna’s knowledge of the local real estate market was the key to pricing my house perfectly. A great price along with Donna’s strong marketing strategy led to multiple showings and multiple offers the first day my home was listed! In the end, I received above list price for my home. I could not only be happier with the result but with all the care Donna took every step of the way. I had already moved out of my home and Donna took the time to stage my property to make certain buyers would feel welcome when they viewed it. I know her personal touches made a big difference. In worki...— Cyndi B.
It has been our great fortune to have asked you to represent us in the sale of our Hopewell Boro property this summer. From the moment we interviewed you, we were convinced that we did not need to search any further for a real estate professional because you are the definitive example in a highly competitive field. Neither of us is new to buying or selling homes, but we were both impressed by your thorough preparation and understanding of the marketability of our particular property. We cannot thank you enough for staying on top of every aspect of this transaction. It was such a pleasure working with you, and you can be sure we will recommend you wi...— Kathy & Tom C.
We are very thankful for your professional services that sold our house at the perfect time and a good price as we desired. Now that we have moved to our new house, it's so enjoyable to unpack and set up things without the worry about selling the old house. Thank you for all your effort that made our transition so smooth.— Wenrui & Binhua Y.
Donna was everything you’d want in a realtor. Donna helped us sell our house and buy our new house. She was attentive, realistic and honest, which is why we lived working with her. I’d recommend her to anyone looking for a professional and focused realtor.— Colin S.
I cannot say enough positives about Donna- she gets things done, if she says it, it will happen. She made my departure from Princeton seamless- wish there was equivalent skill here in Houston and it would have been the perfect relocation.— Maureen F.
Thanks again for all of your help throughout the process. We’re amazed that you made it all happen (and so quickly and painlessly for us) and went far above the call of duty helping us.— Iliana & Zone C.
My Dad's home was sold in a calm, and efficient process thanks to a top notch team accustomed to helping with senior moves. I can not recommend the members of our team more. Realtor Donna Murray - this was the 4th stress free real estate transaction I’ve had with the help of her expertise.— Bonnie M.
We had been working with Donna and her team for all our properties in New Jersey. It has been a pleasure working with her. She has deep knowledge of the real estate market and knows the related people and systems extremely well. She will get you great deal when selling, renting or buying. We will continue to work with her in the future. Thanks.— Vip J.
I highly recommend using Donna Murray for your real estate needs. From my first call to ask for help in selling my house, her professionalism and expertise guided me in not only selling my house which received multiple offers after the open house, but also in helping with the purchase of another. She staged my house, provided multiple resources for facilitating the sale, answered every phone call and text promptly, and shared her wisdom and warmth on my real estate journey. I am grateful that she was recommended to me and I recommend Donna Murray as your realtor too.— Mary C.
