I met with Donna Cartwright in early November after having my Hollywood Riviera home on the market with another broker for over 110 days without successfully yielding one offer. Donna presented me with a pricing analysis, which included homes sold and the competition, a strategic marketing strategy, and professional staging options (since my home had been vacant). Once I hired Donna, she was fast and entirely hands-on; she had my home professionally staged and a professional photographer there within days. Her marketing campaign included beautiful videos, neighborhood flyers, mass emails, and so much more than I had seen with my previous broker. My home was listed on a Thursday (less than a week after signing the listing agreement), she held an Open House that first weekend, and we received two above asking price offers! The escrow closed without a hiccup within 30 days in under two weeks before Christmas. I cannot be more pleased with the outcome and with Donna’s swift sale of my home. I would not hesitate to use Donna again and will refer her to any family members or friends who are looking for a dynamic local Realtor who I believe can handle any situation.

Donna was our realtor when selling my elderly mother’s house in Rolling Hills Estates. From the first time we spoke about selling her home she was engaged with a professional, kind and thoughtful approach to this process. We were selling my mom’s house so she could move with my family and I to Virginia. I had already moved myself there and my wife and kids were getting packed up to move also. Donna was so gentile with her interactions with my mom. She was very understanding of the fact that my mom had been in that house for over 50 years and was not ready to give it up.
Donna had the utmost professionalism processing and presenting the offers on the house. The open house’s that she put on were great and had an outstanding turnout with over 75 agents and potential buyers. The house went into escrow right after the first open house weekend and it closed within 30 days of putting it on the market at above our asking price. Donna also negotiated a FREE leaseback of the house – for 90 days! – while the new house in Virginia was being built. This gave us time to pack the house and help prepare my mom.
Donna’ care and attention to my mom was above and beyond. She would stop by regularly to check on her, bring her food, and on several occasions go so far as to take my mom to the store.
Donna was just amazing!
Donna is always a cut above. She puts her clients needs, wants and requests first. What is rare in Donna, the ability to allow her client or potential client to grow, learn and adjust to markets as well as information. That is not a usual trait. I am proud to call her not only a great realtor but a friend as well. When asked if I know anyone in the Southern California that has a real estate knowledge and is someone I trust, Donna is at the top of that list.
Once we contacted Donna Cartwright, she was very responsive. After making an assessment of our property, she laid out her strategic marketing strategy in a very well thought out plan which included targets and time frames that helped us to visualize the overall picture. She fully explained her pricing strategy which culminated in a sale well over the list price. The property was listed for only a week and yielded more than ten amazing offers! The house was semi-staged by her (it was vacant) which, no doubt, made the property more attractive and pleasing to prospective buyers. Donna explained the pros and cons of the different offers; her expertise aided us in making more informed decisions. She handled the issues that cropped up during the inspection period and was able to resolve them quickly. Since we had a short escrow period, we were able to close the deal in less than a month! We would not hesitate to use Donna again and refer her to our family and friends.
We had the pleasure of using Donna’s service three times (two times as our listing agent and once as our buying agent, within four consecutive months). She communicated her marketing strategy in a very well thought out plan which included targets and time frames using a calendar. This was very helpful to us since we are both visual people and this helped us to see the overall picture. Donna made suggestions and explained the pros and cons of the different offers. Her expertise aided us in making more informed decisions. As a result, we were very satisfied with the outcome in all three transactions. We would not hesitate to use Donna again and refer her to our family and friends.
This woman is so well educated in her field of expertise that I would not hesitate to buy another house from her, her award winning personality and undying wealth of knowledge will answer any and all questions you could possibly have when buying a home whither it’s your first or second or whatever!!!! Thanx Donna your the best!!!
