What clients are saying...
Donna was a complete professional! She was prepared, knowledgeable, and kind. Our decision to move was a bit of a whirlwind and selling the house happened very quickly. Donna was a great support through the whole experience and very successful in our sale. We would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.
Kind, complete, expertise apparent, genuine with thoughts and suggestions....always thinking of options and ideas! Donna Best is the best!
I'm not sure where to start. This home buying/selling experience with Donna was as flawless as possible. From our first meeting with Donna to tour a home, to the final closing on both our sale and purchase, Donna made the process fun and easy. Timing on the sale/purchase was critical to us. Each step of the way she kept us informed of what to expect and gave great advice on how to accomplish our goals. Her market research was right on. When it came time to negotiate on both ends of the deal, she listened to our concerns, the other parties concerns and was able to get all parties a fair and equitable deal. To be honest, we probably had more questions (and anxiety than many people. Donna answered each and every question in a timely manner and always with a smile. On a going above and beyond note: During our second tour of the new condo, my wife commented on a piece of the staging furniture that she really liked. Donna checked if the stagers would sell it. They wouldn't, so we forgot about it. On the day of our final walkthrough we were THILLED to see the item in the foyer with a big red bow on it. Donna actually tracked down the person who made the item and purchased it for my wife as a surprise. THAT is what sets people like Donna apart from other good agents and makes her GREAT. Many good and well qualified Realtors can execute a deal. Very few make it as seamless, fun, informative and memorable than Donna. We feel extremely lucky and blessed to have worked with her!
Donna was awesome. Responsive, thorough and quick with any documents.
Donna was outstanding as our realtor. Our property was potentially a very difficult property to sell. She made it look easy, took care of all the details for us so we could focus on staging the property properly. She made all the hard stuff simple, dealt with the issues with grace and calmness and was ALWAYS AVAILABLE. We don't know how we would have sold our precious farm without her help!!!
Donna is truly amazing! She guided us through a crazy housing market and helped us purchase our own little piece of Wisconsin! The best part is that she has a contingent of contractors who will drop what they are doing to assist her clients. Our family is truly grateful that she agreed to work with us I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Donna helped me find and purchase my new home in Waukesha WI. I had a list of things I needed and wanted for the house. She found me a house that checked all the boxes within the first week! The home was also under budget. She was knowledgeable and friendly. I am now enjoying my new home. Thanks again to Donna and everyone at Shorewest that helped!
Donna was amazing to work with. She brought me some boxes for packing before we had even signed on with Shorewest. This just shows what a caring person she is and it really swayed me towards her as a realtor. Not living in the area she went out of her way to identify contacts for different needs. She was very patient, detailed and organized. Donna has great communication skills and followed up when needed.
It's always a great experience working with Donna!
This was our first time buying a home and Donna Best helped us every step of the way! She was there to help us through the whole process and she went above and beyond our expectations! THANK YOU!!
She was amazing! She helped my mom buy and sell a few houses 20 years ago so my choosing of a realtor was a no brainer. The wife was very happy with her as well. We can't imagine how this would have gone or what home we would have ended up in with anyone else. If we EVER hear of any friends or family needing a realtor, Donna's name will be the first thing out of our mouth. Thank you so much, Shorewest and Donna Best!
Donna Best has been our families realtor for such a long time. Donna is very knowledgable and always makes sure all of your questions are answered. She has always done a great job getting to know what you like and what works best for you.
Donna was a very special person. She always was there to answer any question and give you support. She was willing to have an open house to bring some clients in to see the house. She had an open house to bring in other realtors to see the house so they might promote the house. I am sure she is a great asset to your company
Donna was great from the start. She was very professional and knowledgeable and could always answer the questions I had. She was very organized and worked hard to get people to view the house the very first day. From there she had a wonderful team working with her and specialized in all aspects of a sale so it was taken care of properly. She knew the proper timeline to have all the testings and inspections done and everything worked very smoothly. It couldn't have been any better.
Donna's expertise has helped our family in so many ways! My husband and I have bought and sold both personal and rental properties with Donna's guidance, and we couldn't be happier. She is very responsive, and offers her knowledge as it applies to her client's best interest. Anyone would be lucky to work with Donna in either buying or selling a home. Thanks Donna!
My house sold within 3 days! Donna was the consummate professional. She arranged to come to the house so I could presign the closing forms, while my son provided support also. He found her, although I did preliminary work contacting members of my church who had sold houses recently.
Our home went on the market at the height of the COVID-019 crisis, but Donna and her team were able to sell the house on a timely basis. Donna was very responsive and helpful in solving the numerous issues that came up during the time leading to the closing of the property. Would strongly recommend Donna to anyone selling a property .
Donna was very very good in navigating me through a cross country move. She was also very patient dealing with someone who is dealing with severe family health issues.
Trust is the first word that comes to mind when with working with Donna. She did an excellent job at listening to our housing requirements and was very responsive to all of our requests and communicated timely and clearly. She was very knowledgeable at helping us assess the pluses and minuses of the properties we viewed. She provided sound advice and useful suggestions at all phases of the purchase process. She accommodated our hectic schedules especially since we lived out of the area. This is the second property that we purchased with her assistance and wouldn't hesitate to make use of her services should the need arise.
Donna told us how to prepare our house for sale at a maximum price. She provided us with the names of service people who provided prompt, excellent service. Our house sold in a few hours at a price that was above list price.
Donna was great, easy to work with. She was creative and certainly helped me put the best offer in. I would not have gotten the house with any other realtor .
Donna was amazing. She takes care of everything, gives sound advice and is very patient.
I can not say enough good things about Donna. This is not the first time I worked with her and it will not be the last. She really made selling my aunts condo pain free. Donna was able to help with so much which helped us so much. From finding contractors, picking up material and making special trips to inform my aunt of all that was happening to simple getting her signature. She did great and I can not say enough good things, thanks again Donna for all that you did.
Donna Best is a Rockstar. Best helped my fiance and I buy a new house and is currently helping to sell my mother's house. Best is not only hardworking but a great listener and she makes this entire process a breeze. We couldn't have done any of this without her! Thank you Donna Best and Shorewest Realtors!!
Working with Donna was nothing short of fantastic! Her knowledge of the the market, home construction, and remodeling ideas played a major role in the purchase of my new home. In a market that presently lends itself towards sellers, she was able to navigate through many buyer disadvantages and still have me come out on top! Thanks again Donna. You ARE the Best!
Your experience, market knowledge, and relationships in the trades resulting from your many years of consistent hard work in the industry were the difference. Thanks for working through all the twists and turns. Our journey started with hope and ended with joy. Thanks for being THE reason we have our dream home. We could not have done it without you.
Our family has known Donna for many years. We worked with Donna and her Shorewest team when we bought our first house 7 years ago. We then worked with her again most recently to sell our first home to purchase our current, dream home!! Words cannot describe how amazing she is. She worked with our family every step of the way to sell our home and purchase another home. She was there every step of the way, all hours of the day, to answer every question and just simply to be there for our family. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable in every aspect of the home selling and buying process. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is so much more than a realtor to our family and we are grateful to her for everything as we enjoy our new life in our dream home!!
Our experience with Donna was top notch. She gave us great recommendations for our home when we were getting ready to sell our home. Once we applied the recommendations and listed our home, we had an offer above asking within 48 hours! Thank you, Donna, for being with us every step of the way...from initial visit/walk through all the way to our closing. We couldn't have had such a successful sale without your expertise!
Very professional and patient, easy to work with. I would recommend her and would like for her to sell my property in the near future.
I love working with Donna. She is very hard working and is always available to answer any questions to help us through the process. Highly recommend her!
Donna Best took the time to show us 12 different condos. During the process she learned what we liked and what we did not. Condos were selling fast. When the condo that fit all our needs came on the market, she notified us. We were able to make and offer quickly and have it accepted. We appreciate her professionalism from showing to closing. AND we love our new condo. Thanks to you Donna.
My mother reluctantly decided to sell her house that needed updating. With the expertise, professionalism, and knowledge of Donna Best, she assisted us in this process. As issues came about she notified us and we were able to make decisions to correct the situation. We were constantly notified as to the status of the sale and were able to accept a reasonable offer. Donna made the sale a pleasant experience.
Donna was fantastic helping Mark and I purchase our forever home. Always on top of everything and willing to do the extra to make everything work out. I couldn't be more pleased with her professionalism and expertise. Thank you Donna, You helped make our dreams come true.
We worked with Donna to buy our first home 7 years ago. Most recently, we worked with her to sell that home and to find our current home. Donna was there for us EVERY step of the way. She is knowledgeable in every aspect of the process. She was always available to answer our constant questions, and guided us through the process even when things didn't go as planned. She is professional and an expert in the industry. We would not be in our dream home if it wasn't for her and her team and her experience. We would happily recommend her to anyone!!!
I would highly recommend Donna to anyone thinking of selling their home. Donna and her team helped make the selling of my house a smooth transition. Donna is thorough and professional and from my first meeting with her, I knew I was in good hands!
Donna is the definition of professional and I would not have wanted to work with anyone else on this journey. She is truly the best! She knows she isn't just finding your future house, but shes finding your future home.
It was a quite a life changing experience to sell our home where we lived for 29 years. Donna was very helpful and informative during the entire process. We were very pleased and would highly recommend Donna.
Donna and Katie were fantastic to work with. They listened to what we wanted, provided useful suggestions and took the time to work with us on selecting the ideal home for our needs and budget. They were very attentive and make the home buying process extremely easy.
I have worked with Donna for over 14 years. During that time she has listed and sold 3 properties for me and I have purchased 5 homes with her as my broker. She is extremely knowledgeable about the industry and home buying/selling trends, home inspections, and she knows what to look for when walking through a home, she can spot defects, and problems the home may have. Over the years she he worked with several contractors and home inspectors, and can easily make recommendations on quality people to work in your home. She is professional and she loves her job. It shows in her hard work and dedication to her clients. Above all, she truly cares about the people she works with. She wants the best for her clients and she works her hardest to ensure her clients are happy. I would and always do recommend her to any potential home buyer. Tricia S.
This is the second home Donna has listed and sold a property for me. The first one was during a very tough market time and she got the job done in a great way. This time around one of the additional challenges was the fact that I live several hours away. Again, Donna and her team did a wonderful job. I couldn't be happier with my experience with Shorewest and more specifically with Donna.
Donna and Katie were wonderful! They brought expertise, confidence, and a sense of calmness to the process. They made it as stress free as home buying and selling can be for us and quickly responded to all questions and scheduled showings.! We are so thankful and would recommend them to anyone who is buying and/or selling a home!
Donna was always available to answer the many questions I had about the buying process. She found the right house for my needs and always informed me what the next steps were and when to submit which documents. I would definitely recommend working with Donna.
Donna was very friendly and did a good job for us. Would refer her to anyone we know that is selling a home Thanks again Donna.
5 Stars !!!!!! Katie was able to help us deal with a tough family situation and sell the family home . She was very thorough and thoughtful in her approach from signing the listing to handling the closing completely. I would recommend Katie and Donna to anyone . Thanks Again ! Tom R
Donna Best was very professional and excellent to work with. She was knowledgeable about our neighborhood and helped to price and stage our home correctly to sell within a week. She was very helpful every step of the way. Highly recommended.
My experience with buying my condo was super easy. Katie helped me every step of the way, and was always available to answer any questions I had. Would recommend to any of my friends or family looking for a realtor.
I was a first time home buyer with Katie as my agent. I knew nothing. Honestly. Nothing. She walked me through every detail and was very thorough. But the most impressive part of this process was knowing I could trust someone to tell me the truth.....the good, the bad, the ugly. She always had my back. This was a great first experience! I can't thank you enough.
Excellent service. You cannot beat the knowledge and expertise that Donna and Katie bring to the table.
I have been working with Donna for over 14 years. She was the realtor I choose when I bought my first home, and has since been my realtor for buying and selling my next few homes and a few rental properties. She is knowledgeable about the industry, committed to her clients, she always strives to make the buying/selling experience as smooth as possible, and above all she cares about the people she works with. When buying or selling a home, you need a realtor who listens and understands your needs, and someone who has worked in the industry for a long time and has the insight and wisdom to assist their clients effectively. Donna has always exceeded in all of these areas. She has an impeccable track record of finding me the perfect home, and selling my home quickly. She does her research and knows the markets she works in. She has sound advice for getting your home on the market and making it enticing to buyers, as well as what to focus on when looking at new homes, and she does it all with a smile. You can tell she loves what she does, and at the end of the day she takes pride in helping her clients. She truly cares about each of the families/individuals she works with. I would highly recommend her to any home buyer or seller.
We started working with Donna months ahead of putting our house on the market. She spent hours with us advising on prepping the house and giving us recommendations for contractors. With her help, our house was show ready when it hit the market, and we had an offer within a week. Her experienced eye was a great help in knowing what to do to make the house attractive to buyers, and her thorough understanding of our local market got us a fair price. She was always promptly responsive to our many questions, and just made the whole process as pain-free as possible. We're grateful our old neighbors recommended her services to us, and we'd be happy to pass along a heartfelt recommendation to others.
Donna Best was great. She helped us every step of the way. She even helped us find people we needed for any repairs. She would check on the house perodicaly as no one was living in it. She knew I was not good with electronic signitures so would come to the house for signitures. Sold the house in less than 5 months. Closing team was great. Explained every thing well and answered all my questions.
We loved working with Donna. She is kind and friendly and made us feel that we were her only customer. Donna was always available for us. On the few occassions that she could not answer our calls, she always got back to us quickly and never made us feel like we were a burden.
Donna is definitely the BEST realtor in the Milwaukee Area. She sold our house in 3 days!!! We couldn't of asked for a more knowledgeable, hard working realtor on our side. We highly recommend her!
We had to leave the country in short order. Donna helped us move our house FAST! She even closed the deal after we left the country. Donna goes above and beyond what is required to make a seller happy. I'd highly recommend her every time.
Working with Donna and Katie was a fantastic experience. They showed they cared about us not only as customers but as people. They were professional, responsive, and flexible. With their expertise and guidance, we sold our first home and moved into our dream home. There isn't a time we don't recommend them to anyone that mentions buying or selling a home.
I have worked with Donna 3 times now and have never been dissapointed. Both of my son's have also used her. We all have recommended her to others. A coworker originally recommended her to me. We love Donna. She really is the best!
I was very pleased w/ Donna. Always professional and looking for creative ways to attract attention to help sell our home.
We have worked with Donna Best on either purchasing or selling three homes in the past 7 years. She has our best interests in mind at all times and communicates with us on every step during the buying/selling process. She is very thorough and has made the process so much easier for us each time.
Very professional. Met all my requests and got the house sold fast. I highly recommend her.
We love working with Donna. She has proven to be fair,personable and very knowledgeable. Thanks, Donna, for another successful and interesting real estate experience.
For some reason this home took a long time to sell. But Donna stayed positive and one day it sold with a minimum of fuss. I needed to fix some things mentioned in the inspection and Donna recommended some good contractors and coordinated with them. This was important since I no longer live in the community. At the end, just prior to closing, Donna kept on top of the outstanding requirements and the actual closing went as smooth as silk.
Donna was very helpful in a stressful back and forth process to get our dream home. Always very nice and professional she went above and beyond to help us out. We were on a tight schedule and Donna did her best to accommodate.
