“Donna is an exceptional realtor, both tenacious and gentle in her approach. This puts prospective buyers/sellers at ease during a frightful and exciting time as they endeavor to buy or sell their home. I’m not an easy customer, and Donna professionally navigated my many obstacles with ease, understanding, and honesty. She truly went above and beyond what I would have expected for both my first time buying experience, and my first time selling experience. Thanks Donna! ☺️”
Brett Benson, Maryland (Seller)
“Donna Chandler was phenomenal. Easy to work with, she quickly figured out what it was that we really wanted and found it for us. Patient with us as first time buyers and taught us quite a bit about the process. Great personality that my wife loved. She kept referring to Donna as our “little pit bull”, looking out for our interests during negotiations. I appreciated her candor and frank assessments of properties that she took us too. She never wasted our time. Great communication from her during the process. She made sure that we always understood everything that was occurring and what factors influenced the negotiations. We could not have been more pleased with her and will gladly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling property in the area. Donna assisted in finding our home during a very tight timeline while we were in the area. As a military family, she made the process easy as could be while we were back in N.C. ”
Mike & Stephanie, Fredericksburg (Buyer)
“We sold our home with Donna, and because of her we were able to sell our home and find a new one smoothely. She was precise and efficiently handled all tasks. She also was amazing and helpful through the stressful moments and dealt with tough parts of our sale with extreme finesse. We were truly lucky to have her as our realtor. ”
Courtney, Ruther Glen (Seller)
“From the start Donna and Linda were on top of ensuring we experienced a pleasant worry free experience. Their advice from pricing to staging to repairs was spot on and we felt confident throughout the process that we would be successful. As I stated earlier, an outstanding job all around. If you want to sell your house for a fair price in a reasonable amount of time you can't go wrong with Donna and the support staff provided by Century 21.”
Joseph M. (Mike) Stevens, Southport N.C. (Seller)
“Donna gave us excellent advice about what needed to be done to ensure our house was ready for the market. She sold our house very quickly and helped maximize our profit. She kept us updated every step of the way and was responsive and professional throughout the entire process. ”
Karen Denas, Dumfries (Seller)
“Donna Chandler was there for us every step of the way. I live in CA and had to place all my trust in Donna. I took all of Donna's recommendations and feedback with answers to all my questions. And she supported and/or provided professional advice to all our concerns. Although I was across the country I had faith that Donna was handling the sale of our house with the upmost respect and ethical consciousness. I would recommend Donna Chandler to friends and family and reassure them they are getting the best in the business. Sincerely, John Cerda”
John Cerda, Murrieta California (Seller)
“Donna was the best agent I had ever deal with. Over the years I had deal with other agency and agents none look out for my interest the way that Donna did she kept me informed and walk me thru each step of the way. I have recommended her to a close friend and she will be handling the sell of her house this spring. Just wish Donna could handle the sell of another house I have in another county. ”
Linda Breeden, Gloucester, Va (Seller)
“Donna's reputation in the industry and the community are of the highest caliber. Her professionalism, knowledge and personality make it a pleasure to work with her. Donna takes a practical, organized approach to the sale process. She clearly has the expertise to have a winning formula for sales success. Donna is a pleasure to work with. She represents Century 21 really well. Donna is proud to represent the company and values the support and resources the company provides her. From start to finish, the sale process went smoothly. Donna exudes the confidence and demeanor of a true real estate professional. She gave us great advice and kept us fully informed through the entire process. She is a very valuable employee.”
Bob and Cheryl Reilly, Fredericksburg (Seller)
“Donna is absolutely fantastic! Even if it means no sleep, she will see to it, her clients are happy and taken care of through to the end. And even if it seems nothing is going right, she's handling it with smile! A beast, she is. A super duper real estate hero, and our friend! ”
Tanja Zigler, Fredericksburg, VA (Buyer)
“Donna Chandler came personally recommended to my wife and I, and we were so happy that we pursued her as our realtor. From the first moment I contacted her (on vacation in England!), she was responsive and helpful. My spouse and I were moving across country at separate times months apart, and Donna was able to communicate with both her and I, and really made sure that the decisions we were making came from a well considered and well informed place. Donna has some really great contacts in the community, and this was immediately evident when her recommended housing inspector saved us from purchasing our first choice house, which would have cost us way more than the listing price due its condition. She was patient beyond belief as we went back and forth, looking at listings, conducting walk-throughs, and then talking over each house from states away. We ended up getting a fantastic house in Stafford, which we are extremely happy with, and Donna is largely responsible for that happy glow we're feeling every time we open the front door. Thanks Donna!”
Bob, Stafford (Buyer)
“Donna is absolutely amazing! She helped us out through the entire process, answered all of our questions, and helped us learn more about being a homeowner and purchasing a home. She was always positive, upbeat, and helpful. Even when we weren't. Thank you Donna for your amazing work and helping us find our beautiful home!”
Tabitha Russell, Spotsylvania, VA (Buyer)
“Donna Chandler was wonderful! I truly enjoyed working with her during my very first home buying experience, she had an awesome personality, was easy to talk to and was welcoming from day one. Donna was with me every step of the way and she made what could be considered a stressful process (house hunting/ purchasing a home) very enjoyable. Donna did an excellent job reading me and understanding what I was looking for in a home without me even having to tell her and I loved how honest she was with me throughout the process, she made me feel comfortable and confident with my decision to purchase my townhouse and I knew that she had my best interest in mind too; she wouldn't let me settle for anything less than what I wanted (even though my wish list was very long) and I am so thankful she didn't let me settle because I wouldn't have the beautiful townhouse I have now if I had. Donna did a wonderful job negotiating with the sellers and made sure I got the best deal and she kept me in the loop throughout everything! she made sure I understood all the documents that were needing to be signed and if I had any questions I was able to ask her and she was always quick to respond. She was committed, organized, and made the whole process go smoothly. I absolutely loved working with Donna Chandler and I will be recommending her to anyone I know that is considering buying or selling a home. ”
Gabrielle Markley, Culpeper (Buyer)
“Working with Donna Chandler showed me what every experience with a broker should be like. From our first meeting, Donna presented herself as warm, professional, and a broker who was fully committed to the ethics and responsibilities of her profession. Every interaction with her only confirmed the fact that we made the right decision when choosing her to sell our home. Donna was always responsive to our questions and I was consistently impressed with her ability to immeditaley answer our questions about every aspect of the deal. She kept us informed at every stage of the sale of our house and did so with a balance of professionalism and warmth that is rare. There is not enough space to fully say what a pleasure it was to work with her and how she made a process that can feel overwhelming at times seem manageable and easy. I cannot remember the number of times that our family said we made the right decision when selecting Donna and cannot thank her enough for her work on the sale of our home.”
K. Davis, Stafford VA (Seller)
“Donna was very pleasant, professional and made an excellent presentation of her capabilities to sell our home. We felt during the sales process that she always had our best interests at heart which increased our confidence in her selling abilities. She assisted us professionally during the entire process. Her character and personal ethics are outstanding.”
Virginia and Jim Brooke. 7 Hickory Lane, Amelia Island, FL 32034-5064. (Seller)
“Donna Chandler's responsiveness stood out to me. From the moment I filled out the inquiry form, she began to communicate and reach out. Donna also introduced us to great partners during the house buying process from lenders to the title company, which made the entire process wing to wing enjoyable and smooth!”
Christy Doanldson (Buyer)
“Donna was very friendly, personable, and professional. I felt I was in great hands the entire time.”
Marilisse Gonzalez, Woodbridge, VA (Seller)
“Donna Chandler presented herself during the interview as very competent with my interests of most importance. She came prepared with a market analysis to help determine the best selling price for my home. She guided me through the entire process to get the best price for my home. She took my home from the start and made it her priority to sell. She was present for the open house and brought a financial colleague with her. She advised me along the way as to the status of prospective buyers. Donna Chandler accomplished what she set out to do in the allotted time frame so that I could move on to my new home in Florida. I could not have done this without her.”
Brenda, St. Augustine, FL (Seller)
“Donna Chandler was very helpful and understanding of what I was looking for. I've heard of many problem other buyers have had while going through this process, I had no such problems and would highly recommend Donna Chandler to my friends and family”
James Karam, Manassas Va (Buyer)
“Donna is the epiphany of what brokers should be. She was knowledgeable about the area and confident with her information. She was able to articulate why it was important to own a home and offer useful insight to my purchase. The most important part of Donna is her natural nurturing personality. Even during non-business hours, she was able to bring me down to earth to overcome the stresses of the home buying process. Will highly recommend her to anyone I know! ”
Amanda , Stafford, VA (Buyer)
“As first time buyers, Donna helped guide and educate us throughout the process. We appreciated her efforts on providing information and being available for questions all the way through closing. Donna was instrumental in making sure our purchase was as smooth as possible.”
The Payamps', Woodbridge (Buyer)
“I am so lucky that Donna Chandler was my real estate agent helping me with my first time home buying experience. She paid a lot of attention to exactly the features I was looking for in a house and saved me a lot of time. On our first day out, she lined up exactly the houses I wanted to see like she had read my mind! Donna gave me a lot of information and advise about the home buying process and was really there for me every step of the way....just an email or phone call away. She negotiated everything with the builder and handled all the scheduling and coordination and made sure I promptly received all the documents that I needed. She was also very helpful in getting me connected to the home insurance company, ADT, utilities, moving services. I would not even have known where to start on my own! Donna made buying a house such an easy and pleasant experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor's services. ”
