We were so fortunate to meet Donna Fernandez in our search for the perfect home for our family! From the start, Donna exceeded all our expectations in providing us with insight while never being pushy. We were new to the area, and Donna was invaluable in telling us what neighborhoods and schools  were the best for our children, which towns had higher taxes than others, and which towns were a better value for our money. She helped us find the most amazing house for our family, and she was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. She was constantly in touch and helping us line up landscapers, contractors, and other professionals to help us with our new home. She spent so much time with us and she is so wonderful to be around, that we feel like she's not just our realtor, but our friend too! Jeanette and Joshua Henne, Shrewsbury 

"Donna is an experienced, knowledgeable professional with great insight into the Monmouth county housing market. She showed us several listings that were of interest to our family and the house we chose was perfect. We especially appreciated the way she worked well with other agents and her knowledge of the local area amenities. We would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in a home in the Rumson, Fair Haven, Little Silver, or Shrewsbury area. Judith P., Fair Haven"

"I was very lucky to find Donna Fernandez as my realtor. She has a thorough knowledge of the current real estate market and local trends. She was able to answer all of my questions and I felt very confident that she would be able to guide me through the whole real estate selling process. Her professional manner, pleasant personality, and her willingness to do all she can to help you sell your home are a winning combination." Nancy Coquel, Little Silver

 "Donna helped us find the perfect home for our growing family. We were relocating from up North and didn't know much about the area. We knew we wanted to be near the water but that was about it. Donna helped us navigate through the market and was a great resource for us. She was knowledgeable about all the different neighborhoods, the school districts etc. She even gave us some great recommendations for contractors in the area that we ended up using to do a little work on the property we ended up buying." Audrey Wible, Oceanport

"Donna helped us sell our home, which was not an easy task. We were located on a Waterfront property. Yes we had alot of damage from Sandy. Repairs were complete. Our open house had alot of interest. We ended up with a bidding war, which in the end was a nightmare. Our situation was very stressful and upsetting. Donna worked very hard keeping me calm, which was not an easy task. The buyer's were very difficult. She even did the work of the Buyers agent, in getting insurance quote, to help us close. Donna is straight forward, and a very hard worker. She will get your house SOLD." Judy Cuje, Rumson

 "Donna is a high energy, dynamic agent with a strong ability to leverage connections, intelligence, personality, and intuition to meet the needs of her clients. Donna delivered top results;; she is straightforward and understands the cost of wasted time. She is now the first resource that comes to mind when real estate expertise is required. She gave us personalized attention, 24/7 availability, and met our demanding requirements and timeframes. I can vouch for Donna's proven track record, based on uncompromising standards of performance and integrity. 5 stars all around. She representing us in selling two properties and in purchasing 1 (so far)."

 "Donna was a great help to my husband and I who were not from the Monmouth County area. She took us to the local market, schools our children would attend, and the favorite restaurants in the area. During our house hunt, she quickly learned what we were looking for and what we were not...she pointed us to a great neighborhood that she knew we would enjoy and she was right. Along with her professionalism with real estate she also has a great source for multiple vendors that she works with. I always felt we could ask her anything and received a quick response back even after we closed."

"Donna is an extremely energetic and focused real estate professional. She contacted me about the house, told me she could sell it as soon as the tenant was out and she did. She helped tremendously getting the tenant out since I can't there. She determined what would be necessary improvements to sell the house. They were reasonable and seemed necessary. She took care of getting someone to perform the work almost immediately, so she has a very good network of contractor/laborer/cleaning personnel. She helped me engage a local attorney and worked with him to resolve any issues like inspection that were required by the locality. And. most importantly, knowing that the house looked good from the outside but needed a good deal of modernization, she advised that the contract be drawn up such that the house be sold "as is:, which turned out to be an excellent protection after the inspector examined every nook and cranny of the house. She followed up with anyone who hadn't completed a task or completed paperwork. And finally she agreed with the price I initially listed and then helped me to make the decision to reduce the price when it seemed appropriate after a complete inspection of the house. I appreciated the advice. It turned out to be sound because the house sold within several weeks of the date it was put on the market. She attended to closing when I couldn't and walked me through my concerns.So the upshot is that I highly recommend Donna as an aggressive, in a good sense, realtor. She has the energy and knowledge to get a house sold quickly at a reasonable price. She was consistently professional and pleasant to work with." Cheryl Davis, Little Silver

 "Donna is a true professional. From the initial meeting that my husband and I had with Donna through the process of showing, selling and moving Donna was without a doubt knowledgeable, experienced and most of all a pleasure to work with. Donna guided us in determining the current market value of our home providing us with a realistic picture of what to expect. After signing our contract with Donna, she followed through immediately and marketed our home within twenty four hours. During the process of showing our home Donna kept us constantly informed and she was available to answer any questions we had along the way. Donna helped facilitate all aspects of the selling process and we highly recommend her without any reservations." Joann
