What Clients Say about Donna Goings

Hope Wyss:

Wooooooo-hoooooooo! Excellent job Donna!

Working with you has been one of the smoothest, most pleasant real estate experiences I’ve ever had. We have lived in several places, so I have had occasion to work with many realtors. It has been such a pleasure to know that selling my parent’s house has been in such capable hands. I have had complete faith in your judgment on what repairs needed to be done and finding qualified people to do the jobs, while keeping costs at a minimum. It has been truly wonderful not to have to deal with these issues myself given that I live in another state.
“I was just amazed when we had an offer on the house in less than a week. I believe your experience and knowledge of knowing the most important areas to focus on, along with your eye for staging made that quick sale happen.

Thank you so much for all your hard work.

Watts Schwab:

I want you to know how much I appreciate your professionalism and upbeat attitude. In addition to appreciating the many trips to Stribling showing the house to clients, letting in appraisers and repair men, and working with the renter, I think I am most grateful for the patience you showed in helping me understand what was going on when I was confused, which was often. Through the entire year, I felt supported by your equanimity and positive manner of approaching things.

Adam Slate:

Donna gave good feedback and advice. She is experienced and covers all the bases Thank you for selling our house. Kim and I are thrilled to be in one house. Your guidance working through the process was invaluable.

Andy and Kristina Greenberg:

Excellent service. She made us feel like we were her only clients. Also, her knowledge/experience of the Charlottesville area market was outstanding.

Mr. and Mrs. John Duffy:

We met Donna at an open house. We liked her very much – her manner, knowledge base and advice made a very strong impression. We decided to ask her to represent us. She was accessible, kept in frequent contact.

Suzette Holt:

On behalf of the Tinsley/Holt family, I thank you for your efforts in getting our parents’ house sold so quickly and at a good price. We greatly appreciate your constant communication, personal attention, expert advice and overall care in guiding us through the process. A chapter in our lives is closed but the memories will keep the house forever ours. Thank you.

Jan and Nan Harlow:

Just wanted to thank you for the great job you did for us in the sale of our parents house. You sure took a lot off of us since we were so far
away and we felt like we were in good hands. You helped us with everything that needed to be done to the house to get it ready for sale
which was greatly appreciated. Hope you have a good year in the real estate market. Thanks.

Bill Jobes:

My experience selling the Crozet townhouse with Donna Goings Real Estate LLC was excellent

Supportive
Knowledgeable and creative
Reliable and hard working
Effective and prompt communicators

Their realistic market pricing and simple staging of the vacant interior (provided at no additional cost) transformed the empty place, and may well have sold it - I received a full price offer and Contract on the first day on the market! Real estate deals are often tedious and frustrating, but with Aly and Donna’s experienced and focused support, it was actually fun! I won’t hesitate to call them in the future. Thank you Aly and Donna very much, see you soon.

Debra & Glenn Conner:

Thank you!

We did it! Money in the bank!

I hope you feel as happy as we do. Can’t say enough about your service, knowledge & hand holding. And the wonderful staging that you did. It was a two year journey, filled with uncertainty. But good advice, an outstanding contractor, money & hard work really paid off.

Glad to close this chapter with so much gratitude. If you ever come to the Charleston SC area, we have an luxurious suite waiting for you.

All the best,

Debra & Glenn

Kris Wood:

The Best Agent for the Job

Donna behaved like the consummate professional that she is. She was frank and engaging at all points of the process, and the “remote activities” necessitated by location were handled smoothly and efficiently. Donna knows her market(s) and we definitely benefited from that expertise. We interviewed other agents before selecting Donna, and her unruffled demeanor and work ethic were evident in the interview and reinforced at every step of the sale and closing. I would recommend Donna to anyone, new to real estate or not!

Ellie Kates:

Knowledgeable and professional

Donna is an excellent realtor whose knowledge and experience are unmatched. We have worked with her twice, and I trust her skills and opinions completely. I highly recommend working with Donna if you are buying or selling a home.

Joan Longley:

I was happy with Donna. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. She was always available when I had any concerns or questions. The selling a house seems to get more complicated. I would recommend Donna as a good agent
