Donna did an excellent job selling our property. She communicated very well with us and kept us updated at all times. She watched closely to make sure she was taking care of what was best for us and that we would not be taken advantage of. She advertise our property far beyond what we expected. (Georgia)
Donna, Great! Our Pastor told us Sunday to make a list of those people in our lives that we are thankful for. You are on that list! We are thankful for you being our agent and becoming our friend! Have a Great Thanksgiving Day! (Georgia)
...again you have our business and friendship forever, it really is hard to find honest hard working people these days, and once you find them, you have to hold the up. (in a good way). Thanks again and God bless you! (Buyer and Seller - Florida)
Simply put: Donna is the HARDEST WORKING agent I have ever seen! 'Nuff said. We love our beautiful mountain cabin. Thank you. (Buyer - Atlanta, GA)
Donna was very professional to work with and sold our property within a few weeks. She will work hard for you as your agent and I highly recommend her. We will definitely use her again in the future. (Georgia)
Either if you're new to this area or old resident, we the Negron family will recommend Donna Yates as your Realtor. She is a hard worker person, and when se said hard work is 24-7, no problem with her. We purchased a foreclosure property and with Donna's experience and expertise we felt so confidence during the buying process, she did what we thought was impossible, she made possible. Her steadfast work keeping us communicated from the beginning to the end, it was a pleasure experience. It's really hard to find good Realtors these days, this is our third home purchased so far, and I have to say the best experience ever, and we are keeping her for future buying as our family Realtor. (Buyer - Florida)
Donna was our agent when se sold our cabin in Mineral Bluff, Georgia. We got a very good price even in such a bad economy. I cannot say enough good things about Donna. She went above and beyond what most agents do. Considerate, thoughtful, helpful, always looking out for the best interest of her clients. I highly recommend Donna. If I had only one word to describe Doona, it would be "AWESOME". (Georgia)
Donna was most knowledgeable and informative we've ever had the pleasure of working with. Every time we had a question, Donna replied via phone or email almost immediately. It was truly our pleasure to work with Donna. We highly recommend her!!! (Mississippi)
