Donna has recently sold our home that we have lived in for the past 32 years. She set up the promotion and the sale process in a very professional cheerful and friendly manner. As we have a flat that is a part of our house, which was occupied during the sale period, we had to be mindful of the tenant's privacy. Donna did a great job hi arranging access to suit the tenant's needs for some SO odd separate prospective buyers over a S week period. This was by invitation without doing the usual "Open Home". Donna, I believe, has a very good understanding of the market and home values in the eastern bays. The sale price we achieved, was in our opinion, right on the current real value and was so% above the CV. We were prepared to accept a lower figure but Donna convinced us that we should push for a higher price, and this was accepted by the Buyer. We would highly recommend Donna to anyone selling their home. Donna put the maximum effort in to achieving our goal, for which we are very grateful.

My wife (Sue) and I have dealt with Donna as both buyers and sellers. Donna has acted very professional and has done an excellent job both times. When it comes to selling our current home we will certainly be contacting Donna to market it for us. Donna is very pleasant to deal with and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell a house as the acting real-estate agent. On a personal note we have been lucky to meet Donna as we now consider her to be a friend.

Donna Watts did an excellent job for us when she sold our penthouse apartment in Mission Bay in mid 2016. She is highly knowledgeable on comparable apartments in the area and how and why recent transactions are or are not appropriate comparables. She really appreciated the ‘special features’ of our apartment and ensured they were fully highlighted and valued by prospective buyers. I and my family live in the UK and the buyer Donna arranged for us was based in America. The time zone differences made price and other sale negotiations challenging, but Donna did a wonderful job managing the process, managing our and the buyer’s expectations and in the end achieved an overall result we were delighted with. Furthermore, she introduced us to an excellent range of gardeners, decorators, furniture providers, lawyers etc so the apartment looked great for the sale process and was handed over in good condition to the new owner; again, as we were out of the country, she largely coordinated all these providers and made life so much easier for us. I wholeheartedly recommend Donna to you to help you sell your property.

When my family and I decided to sell my late Grandmothers property we wanted someone that not only knew the market well and the area but also someone that would have empathy towards our situation. Donna was all that, she was fantastic and a breath of fresh air to deal with. I would recommend Donna to anyone looking to sell.
Thanks Donna for the fabulous work in selling our mother's unit - communication was fantastic which really helped.
"DONNA WAS AN ABSOLUTE STAR" Her expertise in setting up the process to facilitate the sale of our Kohimarama property was superb.Donnas attention to detail ,her enthusiasm and committment step by step through to auction day could not be faulted. Donna's "pop in" visits to keep us informed coupled with her regular weekly written reports on progress along the way,made for a very comfortable selling experience Donna thanks again for your efforts and we wish you all the best in the future.

Donna handled the selling of my flat with the greatest efficiency, keeping me well informed all the time as to how things were going as I do not live in Auckland. A bright, friendly lady.
She was a lovely person to deal with and went the extra mile for us.
I will always be grateful to her for her continued effort.

We recently purchased an investment property as a result of visiting one of Donna's open homes. From our first meeting Donna was friendly, courteous and highly professional. She managed the negotiation process with skill and sensitivity, resulting in an outcome that was readily acceptable to both parties. Having dealt with numerous real estate agents in the past, we consider Donna to be "up there" amongst the top performers. She demonstrates a high level of skill and expertise in all stages of the sale and purchase process and has a style that minimises stress whilst efficiently achieving successful outcomes. Donna has a delightfully warm and positive personality and is always a pleasure to deal with. We will use Donna again when we next require real estate expertise and have pleasure in recommending her, unconditionally, to buyers and sellers in the property market.

Donna recently sold our home and did a wonderful job. She has broad experience in selling and an in-depth knowledge of the current market, so she has accurately assessed the value of our property. Right from the start Donna was enthusiastic and saw the positive features of our home. She is a very effective communicator and negotiator and is highly skilled at matching people with property. Thanks for a great job Donna, we wish you every success for the future.

"When I first decided to list my home I had a couple of estate agents in mind. Then I viewed a house with Donna and I immediately liked her. She was friendly, efficient and very professional. Having moved several times over the last few years I find the whole experience quite stressful especially with children. Donna has helped me find great tradesman to help with making my home look its best. The photographer she chose was fantastic too. What really made it special however; was her partner came around and did around 3 hours of water blasting for me. I have never felt stressed and Donna has been very understanding and calm. Her feedback from open homes has been honest and useful. She has also grasped just what I am looking for in my next home and has been very proactive. I think I have chosen a fantastic estate agent and would not hesitate to recommend her very highly to anyone thinking of selling their home".
My wife Annabell and I recently had the good fortune to have Donna act as our agent when selling a property in the Eastern Bays. Auckland. Donna's friendly disposition, understanding of the market and attention to detail meant she now has another two very satisfied customers!!
