As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows how to be successful in todays complex buying process! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its broadest and ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Donna helped us find our first house, which we purchased in June 2016. She was recommended to us by family members who had also recently purchased a home with Donna as their agent. Donna was incredibly responsive, helpful, and patient throughout the entire process and always took the time to answer all of our questions. She is also very personable and easy to talk to, which made our house hunt a positive experience despite the fast-paced, highly competitive market that buyers are currently facing. We would definitely work with her again and will recommend her to our friends and family. Thank you again Donna! "

"Here are the things I know about Donna Russell as a realtor. Donna spent at least 3 full days going to all the homes for sale in my area looking to find the sweet spot asking price for my home. She worked up a to-do list for me to make my home as presentable as possible and brought in a professional photographer for the pictures on the flyer. When the fixit list came in from the buyers inspection she arranged to have the right people come in to do the repairs, My home sold for the asking price to the very first people to view my home. Donna was there for me from the first right up to the receipt of closing funds. Fred Gasperson"

"Donna is persistent and hard-working. She was extremely responsive to our questions and needs throughout the home buying process. She took the time to explain each step and never appeared rushed in conversation. She made herself available to show houses on a moment’s notice, sensing the urgency that comes with today’s market. When we found our home, she invested significant time researching the matters discussed in the inspection report. Her efforts and time commitment significantly reduced the stress that comes with buying a home. We would hire Donna again without hesitation. She is personable, trustworthy and extremely talented. "

"06/20/2015 Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Creston-Kenilworth, Portland, OR.   ALL 5 STARS My husband and I were first time home buyers, and we could not have done it without Donna!  In an extremely fast real estate market she was able to get us the house we wanted in the area we wanted and always protected our interests.  She is knowledgeable, and continues learn new practices and opportunities as the market changes.  She is also absolutely on the ball at every turn, we truly would not have gotten our home without her. Highly recommend!!"
