Donna was prompt courteous respectful of my limited budget and helped me all the time. She worked with me to find the right home. I highly recommend Donna.
Helped me sell a home - Priced properly. Negotiated well. Sold in 3 months
I hired Donna to sell my house. She was very personable, not pushy and pretty easy to deal with. I did not enjoy the process but I felt like Donna was able to talk me thru most things to make it go as easy as possible. There were a few hiccups along the way but at no point did I feel Donna was to blame which is why after a year of having my house on the market, it finally sold. I think every seller has to at some point realize their house is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it and it was easier to figure that out with Donna's recommendations. I found that communication with Donna made things easier and I couldn't be happier that she helped me sell my house.
I found Donna to be extremely professional but warm and friendly. She's punctual, organized and totally on top of things. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and would highly recommend her.
I highly recommend Donna. She is highly professional, carrying through from start to closing, whether it be returning calls promptly or following up with the buyers to make sure the deal went through. An incredibly stressful time, but without Donna, our house would not have sold. Thank you both for a job well-done!
I have known Donna\for a few years now. She worked tirelessly on our endeavor to acquire our ultimate dream house. Being in the architecture and development field we knew what we wanted. Donna Has proved worthy in knowledge and skills in the the world of competitive real estate brokers
Donna is a consummate professional with deep local knowledge of market trends. She is adept at bringing about a true meeting of the minds and I highly recommend her for both buy and sell side representation.

My husband and I feel very fortunate to have met Donna early in our search for a home. Fortunately for us, she is a very good listener. She understood exactly what we wanted, and that saved us so much time. When we decided on a house, Donna was there to guide us through negotiating, inspection. and closing. We are now enjoying our new home and community. We couldn't have made a better choice. Many thanks to Donna for her guidance and professionalism.
Donna was very personable. She took the time to know you as a person to know what you would like and not like within a home. Donna has patience and would answer any and all your questions regardless if it was late at night, the weekend, or she was out enjoying the beautiful weather. Donna will be highly recommended to anyone looking to buy/sell a house.
Donna was a pleasure to work with. She went above and beyond her job in many ways. I was making a cross state move and she went out of her way to find me the perfect home quickly. She did things for me during the process so I didn't have to make an extra 5 hour trip.
The morning of closing I made an emergency call to her because my refrigerator was mistakenly being delivered early (VERY early in the morning). Donna gladly raced over to my home to let the delivery people in, as well as inspected the refrigerator and sent pictures to me.
When I met her for closing later that day, she handed me a battery and said it was for my smoke detector upstairs, as it was beeping earlier that morning.
Thanks for being so awesome, Donna! :)
Donna stepped in at the last minute and managed to get our listing up and running in days, including scheduling an open house for the first weekend. By the time the weekend was over we had multiple offers ! Donna was a calm and positive influence during somewhat rocky closing procedures. She gave wise council and and was there to help in whatever came up, as we were out of town sellers! Donna is a Go-Getter who will help you sell your house in a most efficient and informative way!
We had been looking for a ranch house on our own with no luck for quite some time. When we met with Donna, she immediately understood our needs and wants. The online notification system worked wonderfully and alerted us very quickly on new properties on the market.
Donna was patient through our decision making process and found us exactly what we were looking for.
Donna was great to work with. She was very active in trying to sell our home from scheduling for fantastic photographs to open houses and other marketing. She did what she said she do when she said she would do it and was a real partner in the whole process. We accepted an offer 5 days after our home was listed!
Donna is great. She worked so hard to get my house sold and succeeded. She was an excellent arbitrator and kept my emotions on an even keel during the roller coaster of home sales. She's turned into a good friend. I'd recommend her to anyone.
Donna was a great agent. Completely professional and knowledgeable. Made the house buying experience a pleasure. Constant communication and on top of every detail. Definitely went the extra mile.
My wife and I were in a high-speed corporate relo. Through a short series of submissions (by Donna) and commentary (by us) of available properties, Donna was able to quickly narrow down the field to likely candidates. By the time we came to look, in the 2-3 days we spent with her, any one was a realistic option and we just had to decide which was truly best. In the final analysis, we are 100% thrilled with our choice, and we credit Donna for helping make that happen.
Donna is the reason the sale of my townhouse and the purchase of my new home was such a success. She returned all my calls and answered all my questions. She made the process simple. Thanks, Donna.
Working with Donna was a pleasure. She made the entire experience very easy. She kept us on track and found a excellent property for us. We could not be happier with her level of service. She certainly is an asset to the Allen Tate team.
Do yourself a favor and contact Donna if you want to work with an experienced and courteous agent. She is absolutely world class and was out in front through whole process. (Thanks for all your help with everything. We could not have gotten through this without you!) Sincerely, Sara and Bryan Joyner

Donna was an absolute gem to work with. She listened, asked great questions and narrowed down our target areas for us. She then kept us apprised of new listings coming to market and previewed a few of them for us, saving us precious time.
One we found a home, Donna went right to work on the offer, making the normally painful contract process a breeze. Her negotiation skills during the initial offer, subsequent counter offers and inspection items proved invaluable to us.
Donna’s responsiveness and professionalism is unparalleled to any agent we have ever worked with. She answered calls and emails in record time and was always there to guide us 24/7.
Even after the closings, Donna continued to work tirelessly on our behalf tieing up loose ends, making calls and holding vendors and other parties accountable.
Donna did an excellent job for us. we were very picky and she continued to find us homes that would appeal to us. She helped us find the perfect house.
Donna did an excellent job for us. We were extremely picky and she continued to show us houses that fit our criteria. We love our house.

Donna combines all the talents a great Realtor needs. She is very well organized, she listens carefully, and she offers "over the top" service. After one brief meeting she knew exactly what would be appealing to us and arranged for us to see them all in one day. The first house we made an offer on fell through because of some inspection issues, and by the time it was clear the deal would not materialize, she had an even better choice for us to see. Despite the fact we live out of town, she arranged for and accompanied inspectors, contractors, appraisers etal. and made sure the closing came off without a hitch. Recommending her is a very easy notion for us. Dan and Jane French
Donna was extremely helpful thru out the process and is still helping me after the closing. Without her efforts this would not have been so smooth.

Working with Donna to sell our home was a pleasure. No one thinks selling a home is pleasurable! She was a consummate professional and her veteran advise was solid and spot on. Donna’s communication was impeccable. She was always available when we called/texted with any of our quirky questions and her responses, if we did leave/send a message, were immediate. When things got frantic at our buyers closing, she took on our stress and went above and beyond as our advocate. A real Boss! I would not hesitate to work with Donna again if we move back to the Davidson area. Choose Donna to sell your home, you will NOT be disappointed!

Our experience with Donna was exceptional. I had a very small window of time to work with. She planned every viewing in advance of the day so it went extremely well. We saw many homes (which really helped me feel comfortable about the final choice) but never felt rushed or pushed. Then she was extremely helpful with the entire process: from the offer, the deposit, the inspections, through to the closing. We are not North Carolina residents. So we had to do many things remotely. And we didn't have any local resources or know all of the processes. Donna guided us and provided resources- home inspectors, legal firm, etc.. And as a further testament to her and Allen Tate Realty, those resources were excellent. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is shopping for a home.
We enjoyed working with Donna from the start. She listed our unit quickly, provided quality pictures and and excellent description. She arranged an open house shortly after the unit was first listed and then kept us informed regularly of showings. She was always available to answer any questions we had. Our place sold sooner than I thought it would and even after it was under contract, Donna still kept us up to date on everything. She is very professional and efficient.
My house had been on the market for 6 months with a different agent before Donna listed it. I interviewed several realtors the 2nd time and hand selected Donna. She was excellent, house was under contract in 10 days and tons of showings during that time. Very responsive to emails and text messages, excellent communicator overall. Very pleased with her marketing strategy of my home. Frequently held open houses. Very prompt and supportive throughout the whole process even despite closing during COVID-19 times. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor and would 100% use her again if needed. She deserves more stars than 5! :-)
We just bought a condo on lake Norman with Donna's help. She was wonderful to work with and extremely diligent with every detail. She found places even BEFORE they were listed! Once we decided to purchase she was out ahead of all the steps needed to close. Our whole buying process was better because we used Donna. Thank you!
Donna sold us a condo earlier this year and is being very helpful in trying to find a place for my wife's mother. She communicates with us frequently and knows what we are looking for.
I highly recommend Donna for all Real estate needs. She is always “there”. Always responds quickly. Finds answers for any questions. Most questions are answered before even anticipating one. She does her homework. Advertises property for sale beyond the norm. She stays in touch, keeps you updated. Beyond her Realtor professionalism, she is truly interested in you as a person.
She is an outstanding, approachable Realtor and an instant friend. Donna was extremely cautious during Covid 19 to keep everyone Safe that was involved with our sale. Thank you, Donna
We have worked with Donna on multiple properties. She is consistent, reliable and always honest. She also stays on track and is open minded in dealing with complicated or stressful situations. She is great.

From the start, Donna was amazing to work with. She quickly got a sense of what we were looking for and was always super responsive. There was even a day where we found a house we wanted to go see, and she dropped what she was doing and met us there in less than an hour. That’s just the kind of realtor she is. She was committed to doing whatever it took to get us our dream home. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Donna was so great to work with! She's knowledgeable about the market and was always available to answer our questions. Donna made the home buying experience so easy!

Donna was wonderful. Stepped in to assist with a family estate matter. She responded with the utmost care and grace. Extremely hard-working. Gave us an honest assessment of the home. Very quick response times, excellent communication.
Seems to really know the local real estate market. Importantly, she actually seems to listen to clients.
I cannot recommend her enough.
The process went smoothly even in the midst of COVID-19 during the close. The professional staging and photography that Donna brought in really made a big difference in marketing and attracting potential buyers; lots of comments about how beautiful my home looked from family and friends who've never been here and saw the listing photos.
Donna is an amazing Realtor, she is always there for her clients at every turn and always has them in her best interest. She really goes to bat for each and every client and truly knows this market inside and out!
Donna was wonderful! She helped me from beginning to end with the process of buying a home. I highly recommend her as she listens and was there for me at every turn!
Donna was great to work with during the selling and purchasing process. She stayed on top of every step and truly listened to us about our needs and wants. She was punctual for every meeting and lead the way.
Donna went above and beyond for us as we looked for and found our new home. She helped us as we negotiated all the minute details of closing. We would definitely use her again!
Working with Donna Galinsky was a wonderful experience! She is extremely knowledgeable about the market and very responsive to my needs. I would highly recommend her and will do so to all of my friends and colleagues. I look forward to working with her again on my next purchase.
My husband and I recently had the pleasure of working with Donna and we would highly recommend her! Through Donna's knowledge and expertise, we were able to win in a competitive bid situation with over 10 offers and purchase our dream home! Donna's calm demeanor was also an asset in this highly stressful market. We couldn't be happier!!
Donna was a dream to work with- she found us our perfect property in 3 days! She was available through each step of the process to answer our questions and helped us close in 2 weeks. She was polite, friendly and knowledgeable - we will absolutely use her again in the future and recommend her to our friends and family!
