She takes a proactive rather than reactive approach to the loan process for a smooth and stress-free experience. She looks at challenges as an opportunity to work outside the normal. She dedicates time each day to respond to all calls and emails in a timely manner and to set the proper expectations at all times. Donna wants to help buyers with one of the most important decisions of their lives, buying a home. It brings her great pleasure to know she played an important role with helping them to achieve their dream of becoming a home owner. In her spare time, she enjoys making floral arrangements and various craft projects. For relaxation, she enjoys sitting on her deck and watching the birds and butterflies that frequent their back yard. Spontaneous road trips rather than planned roads trips are most pleasurable.
