My boyfriend and I were in search of our first home. Donna was pleasant and helpful from start to finish! She was extremely patient in explaining all the processes to us and always ready to go the extra mile for our needs and wants in the house hunt. We are now in the home we fell in love with and Donna isn't just a realtor to us anymore, she's a friend! We are looking forward to keeping in touch with her and recommending her to all of our friends and family! Thanks Donna !!! You're a rockstar!!!
I met Donna via Zillow on line. I believe my first words to her I was just looking. Donna understood exactly what I was looking for and she provided some homes for me to look at. I whittled them down due to location, issues about the house I liked or disliked. This includes water well v public, septic v sewer, location, size of home and condition, I was willing to do some updating but was really trying not have much renovation but easily repairable properties. We looked at a few properties over a couple of weeks.
When I walked into the home I finally bought I knew it then, if I could get the right price and cooperation from the current owner to pick up some of the repairs, after our inspector had reviewed the property would be very pleased. Donna recommended the inspector who was fantastic, knowledgeable and comes highly recommended by me as well as we did the inspection together instead of him just doing it himself. The inspector gave me a pad to write down the issues and it helped me understand all the issues that this gentleman was looking at including name, age and condition of the issues at hand. I knew how old the hot water heater, furnace, appliances, air conditioner unit etc. were. I feel if Donna Vaccaro had not been my Real Estate Agent I would still be looking for a home that I did not truly want for myself.. Donna has a true professional but has an outgoing personality which made me feel right from the start that she was the person I wanted to find me a home. She always returned my phone calls, text requests and emails very promptly. Daytime, after hours she was always responsive and a true hard worker. She kept me of her schedule but always was there when needed. She is an honest, friendly, knowledgeable agent and certainly a person I hold in high regard. I can find absolutely no faults with her process and applaud her work ethic. It took us less than a month to find the quality home of my dreams and at the price I wanted to spend for my future. Donna hit me a home run on this with her negotiating skills and the knowledge she had obtained in her chosen field, home area and life. I honestly do not believe it would have been this pleasurable to buy a home if it were not for Donna. Donna is a pleasure to work with and certainly is someone I have and will continue to recommend if you are buying or selling. I wish her the best and could not be more pleased a month into my new peaceful retreat.
Donna was simply amazing and was very helpful when we relocated to CT. It was our first time renting a home in 30 years and we had a wonderful experience.
