I bought and then sold my house with Donald. It was a pleasure all the way through. I trust him completely. He is very professional and knowledgeable and cares about the little things. He communicated with me throughout the process which made it that much less stressful as I never felt left in the dark. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.
