There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my 44 years experience as a Seattle real estate professional, I’ve also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This “client first” philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I’ve found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I’ve always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They’ve also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
So when you decide that you’d like to buy or sell a home in the Seattle areas, please contact me.

‟I never sold a house before and felt it would be a big challenge I could put off for years. As a new widow, house maintenance was wearing me out doing it and hiring it done. I felt stuck wanting to downsize and move but afraid to tackle the project. Forty seven years of stuff that my children didn’t want seemed overwhelming. Donna Wood is a profe … ssional who got me through the whole process with more ease than I could have imagined. She kept me moving along when I could’ve stalled out several times. Donna has excellent resources for meeting any deficiencies that may need to be taken care of before the sale. She also arranged for the staging which transformed the old house magically. On open house Saturday, friends, ministers and Donna blessed the house knowing just the right buyers would be drawn to my property. Later we learned that, indeed, our future buyers spent 2 hours on the property that Saturday and they were ready to offer a bid. I can with pleasure recommend Donna Wood as an outstanding professional realtor and careful listener. She asks good questions that helped focus my thinking toward my selling goal. She was outstanding in negotiating the sale price. The whole process through closing was incredibly stress free.” Read More ▾
