I have had the pleasure of working with Donna Heslop on both sides of a real estate transaction: She listed and sold my property in the city of Baltimore and helped me buy a property in Greenbelt that exactly met my needs and was offered at an attractive price. In both cases, I greatly benefited from Donna’s deep knowledge of the real estate markets, applicable law, and common practice. She was always able to answer my questions thoroughly, often by return email within minutes of mine. She never wasted my time by discussing casual house shoppers who were not really interested in my listing or by showing me houses that were not what I’d asked her to find. In both cases I felt that Donna was on my side and not simply trying to make a sale. She understood and represented my interests. Donna’s personality is an asset to her practice. She is unflappable and maintains a calm and friendly demeanor even in cases when others become difficult. (A recent example occurred at the settlement of my Greenbelt property when the seller’s agent became upset until Donna correctly explained that the issue was minor and easy to solve.) Combined with her knowledge and experience, Donna’s manner helps to resolve issues that could be difficult in other circumstances.
I am fortunate to have had Donna Heslop as my realtor during the recent purchase of my home. I have worked with several realtors over the years, including two others in my most recent home-buying endeavor, but none compared to Donna. Her level of competence and dedication easily made her the best. Donna is a go-getter, and stayed on top of things from the search process through to close. As my friends and family will attest, I am not one who is hands off. When it comes to matters that are important to me, I constantly conduct my own research and stay very involved in the process. However, Donna was so diligent and on top of things that I often stepped back and let her handle matters on my behalf without my intervention. I was able to do so with complete confidence and ease. Trust me, given my personality that speaks volumes about Donna as a realtor. In fact, there were often times when I thought about something that needed to happen or wondered the status and Donna would text me about it. It was as if she had a sixth sense! After interviewing Donna early on and deciding to work with her, she scheduled our first meeting together. At that meeting she took time to understand what I was looking for in a home, including my budget. She even went over a sample real estate contract with me and asked if I had any questions. Donna initially set up automated searches for me based on my criteria, but when the generated results weren’t meeting my needs Donna took the time to conduct manual searches and review the results before sending houses to me to review and give feedback on. When I finally did find my dream home, I learned that the loan officer I had been working with left my credit union but I had not been notified. Donna jumped into high gear. She contacted a manager at my credit union to find out what happened and to have them assign one of their best loan officers to me. During bumps in the road with the lender and title company Donna worked hard to resolve issues that came up. Often times she was doing the jobs of others to make sure everything worked out on my behalf. Even after I closed, Donna followed up with me to find out how my move was going and wanted to know if I needed her assistance in any way. I honestly can’t say enough wonderful things about Donna. House hunting can be a stressful process; therefore, it helps to have the personable, dedicated, and capable services of Donna Heslop. I recommend her without reservation.
