Susan Connors

‟Elise Brown has been very hands on in helping us get our house ready for sale. She has also brought in other experts to be sure we have the right listing. Elise also helped us buy a vacation home last year & we are planning to get her help after this sale reinvesting in more property. So happy to have Elise on our side as both buyer & seller!” Read More ▾

Buyer • Queen Anne
‟Donna has helped me buy 2 homes in the Queen Anne neighborhood of Seattle. Working with her was such a delight both times. Donna advocated hard for me, and didn't rush me into any decisions. She wanted what was best for me, and didn't stop until I got it. It was clear to me she was extremely knowledgable and I could really trust her. She both kept my intentions and dreams in mind, while helping me stay realistic. Looking for homes with her was fun, and she even had snacks! I was single when I bought the first home, whereas my second home was purchased with my husband. Even after working with only me the first time, Donna was able to navigate helping myself and my husband shop together, because we didn't always want the same thing. I still can't believe we own 2 homes in Queen Anne, and it's all thanks to Donna. THANK YOU!” Read More ▾

Diana Woodruff

Seller • Northeast Seattle
‟After a quarter century of memories and gardening in one spot I decided to sell my nest. Anticipating such a big change was overwhelming— I reached out to Elise Brown of Cornerstone and she walked me through every step of the journey. With her at my side during this process I prepared my house for listing and actually listed it for sale. Elise was there every step of the way - when the offers arrived she prepared comparisons, negotiated the final contract and then went into overdrive assisting me in the last but hardest step of packing up to meet the deadline to vacate , all while I worked full time. The personal service/attention was above and beyond my expectations—Elise even found a foster-coop/home for my chickens to scratch around in while I transitioned to a new home. Elise’s ability to provide professional services with a personal touch was beyond all expectations, she was there every step of the way, assisting with every detail — if I ever had to do “it” again I wouldn’t choose any other agent. -” Read More ▾

Buyer • Shoreline & Lake Forest Park
‟Donna was a huge help when it came to buying and selling our homes! We met Donna at an open house and really connected. From there she listened to us, showed us many houses and was very patient until we found the house we had always wanted. After that, she helped us sell the house we had been living in. Buying and selling at the same time could have been very stressful, but Donna made the process smooth and we got a great price for our house and it sold very quick for above asking price. We could not be happier with all that she did for us!” Read More ▾

Buyer • Walllingford
‟Donna helped my parents buy the home I grew up in 30 years ago and was the first person I called when contemplating taking this next step myself. She was a true partner in my journey to buying my first home. It was a daunting process to embark on solo but she made me feel fully supported the whole way. As a first-time condo buyer, there was a lot I didn't know going into it, and I was continuously grateful for Donna's expertise, immense patience, and commitment to helping me make my own informed decisions. She stayed true to my values and went out of her way to help me explore options. I was very impressed by and grateful for her in-depth knowledge of Seattle area real estate- her many years of experience gave her unique, useful insight into the condo buildings we visited. When I ultimately found "the one" and was ready to make my first offer, she helped devise a strategy that successfully closed the deal. Two years later, I still feel so grateful every day for where I live, and have her to thank. Donna is a warm, genuinely caring person and a joy to know and work with!” Read More ▾

Buyer • Poulsbo
‟We simply cannot express how much we appreciate Donna's expertise, patience, and skill while searching for and purchasing our first home. Like many couples, we had differing ideas about nearly everything...budget, location, bedrooms...Donna not only negotiated the sometimes crazy PNW market, but also found a home that satisfied both of us AND all our requirements. She went above and beyond seeking out the perfect home for us. She made the entire process easy and painless. On move-in day, she even stocked our fridge and pantry with staples that she knew we would use. When you work with Donna, you know on a deeply personal level that she truly wants the best for you and your family. There simply isn't enough room on this form or enough stars on the rating scale to say how we adore Donna!” Read More ▾

Buyer • Capitol Hill, WA
‟Dear Donna, Thank you for your assistance in helping me find a home. You were diligent in finding me a place with the old world charm within my price range and went the extra mile to find exactly what I needed. In addition, you were able to devise a strategy to negotiate a reasonable price within a very short time frame that ensured the success of finalizing the deal. Not only were you organized, proficient, and resourceful, you were very friendly, attentive, and GOOD at what you do! Thank you!” Read More ▾

Darlene Sommerdorf

Seller • Shoreline
‟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 professional 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 ▾

‟Donna's partnership throughout the sale of our house and the purchase of our new one was outstanding. Her skill, patience, and ability to communicate so well throughout the process was so helpful, guiding us along, giving advice when needed, and being such a strong advocate for us in the negotiating, sales and purchase process. She is an absolute PRO! and we are so happy with the outcome for us all. ” Read More ▾

Roy Harrington

Seller • Shoreline
‟Cornerstone did a superior job on the quick sale of my condo in Shoreline. It was staged professionally with great taste and sold the first day on the market for 10% above asking price. I could not be happier with Donna and her team. All of the closing details went smoothly and in less than 30 days. Thanks, Cornerstone!!”

Buyer • Shoreline
‟Donna was simply amazing. Donna took care of almost everything. She was super duper proactive and kept tabs on everything that was important. She went well beyond what I expected of a real estate agent, and we are very happy with her.”
