What Our Clients Are Saying

We are pleased to recommend Annette MacDonald to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move, again she will be our first choice in real estate agents!
Brad and Nancy C.

"Susan was absolutely amazing! She is patient, understanding, and extremely knowledgable. Susan listed our home which sold in less than 2 weeks and helped us find and negotiate the purchase of our new home. I would absolutely recommend Susan to anyone thinking of selling or buying a house. She is a true professional in every sense of the word." Todd C.


Our experience working with Annette MacDonald was exceptional. Over the years we have dealt with other Real Estate agents, but none were as devoted, experienced, and intuitive on the market place. She brought to the table foresight and a thorough understanding of a buyers expectations. She recommended that we obtain home and termite inspections up front, handle any repairs and have an inspection done ahead of our property prior to going on MLS.
Simply put, Annette performed exceptionally well. We couldn't be happier with her professionalism, her availability, her knowledge of Real Estate, a command of what the market place will bare, and a thorough understanding of how to deal with inspectors as well as possible buyers.  A job well done!
Ferdinand and DeAnn F.

"Susan was amazing. She helped us every step of the way in prepping our home for sale. She went above and beyond from helping select just the right paint color to soliciting designer advice for the most striking chandelier selection. She helped in ways big and small and helped reduce our stress level tremendously. She represented us well at open house, working with 3 offers, and setting buyer expectations to ensure a smooth completion of escrow. I could not have asked for a more impressive, helpful and skilled real estate professional." Debbie D.
