Testimonials:

Derek and Debbie Aramburu, Cedar Park (Purchase) - Donna Ciccarelli is truly a different kind of real estate professional. She provides analysis' like an engineer, she combs through real estate contracts like a corporate lawyer, she delivers personal attention like you are her only client.
My 23 years in residential financing gave me the opportunity to manage more than 21,000 home loan closings. Through all that, I have seen and dealt some outstanding real estate agents. Donna even tops the fine agents in this category.
I moved my family to Austin from Houston nearly two years ago. During this time, houses were on and off the market at a frenetic pace, especially in the communities we targeted. Without Donna, I might still be living at the Embassy Suites and looking for a home. She patrolled the listings and her network hourly, until she found a brief window of opportunity. Thanks to her, we were able to pounce on it faster than anybody else. Through skillful negotiations, she protected my family and our assets like it was all her own.
I was equally pleased to get to know her as a kind, hard-working, and honest person.

Larry and Tamey Peters, Round Rock (Sell and Purchase)- Last year we listed our home with the #1 listing agent in Keller Williams and after 6 weeks on the market we only had one Open House and no offers. We felt abandoned. Donna approached us a year later and after listening to her kind voice and the explanation of her process to sell our home we agreed to list again. She listed it $25,000 MORE than what the Keller Williams agent had listed it for a year ago! Donna gave us advice on staging, had us pre-inspect the home, and had pre-marketed it so that we had over 30 groups of people through our Open House. It resulted in 3 offers OVER list price! We were able to sell $30,000 OVER what the Keller Williams listed our house at in March 2013. Donna and her partner Richard Fowler looked out for us through the negotiation process, dealt with a troublesome buyer's agent, and treated us with respect and integrity. When Donna said she was going to do something, we could count on it! At the same time she negotiated the sale of our house, she also negotiated the purchase of our new home the same evening which was in multiple offers.
Darryl & Suzanne Slade, Austin (Sell and Purchase) - What can we say...Donna was UNBELIEVABLE! She sold our home in one week for more than we expected and helped us purchase our dream home on 20 acres of park-like land for $60,000 under the list price! She watched out for us each step of the way. Not only did she help negotiate our contract, but she even assisted the Seller of the land and their real estate agent to get THEIR purchase contract pushed through so we could close our deal! She just does what it takes to GET THE DEAL DONE! Over a year later and she still keeps us informed about what we can do to maximize our property investment. A friend always!"

Bob and Amy McAndrew, Austin (Sell and Purchase) - Thanks for the help! Not only is Donna an outstanding realtor, but she is now a dear friend. Bob and I appreciated all the detailed information in preparing our home for the market - statistics, staging, etc. Your preparation paid off in multiple offers and quick sale! AND, you really understood what our family wanted in a home! We can't be more pleased! Donna helped me in preparing my father's home for the market in Houston and finding a realtor for that sale. Donna really goes above and beyond in all she does.
