"I think one of the easiest ways to describe the level or personal attention and time spent with us during our house hunt was the fact the name "Donna" became a household name w/ our toddler. Donna was fantastic. She was extremely patient with our search yet knew how to optimize our time and steer us in the right directions. She also posesses a substantial knowledge of the infrastructure & nuances of what to look for and avoid in a home which is extremely helpful for first time buyers. And she's not afraid to get her feet wet!"



"Donna was simply astounding. I was referred to her from a co-worker worker and from our first conversation, things just felt right. My wife has made multiple comments to me just about how much she just likes Donna. That's a big thing in this business as you're going to be spending a lot of time together and communicating. I don't believe I've met a more likable person and that single-handedly made this the best sales transaction of my life. Add in Donna's quick responsiveness, market knowledge (she knows everything and will most definitely point out things that would never cross your mind), positive energy, honest feedback, and professional but incredibly friendly demeanor, and you have the perfect agent to help you in your next transaction. I would refer her to anyone and will refer her to everyone."



"From the first day we decided to list our home with Donna Plank it was a pleasure and good business relationship good advise and answered all question with patience."



"Donna was great from beginning to end, extremely helpful during listing process, negotiations, and closing. She is very easy to deal with, easy to talk to. I would definitely used her in the future and highly recommend to my friends."



"Donna helped us greatly in finding the right home for us. We were first-time home buyers and had a lot of questions, which she helped in answering many of them. For the questions she didn't know, she'd find out the answer for us. She explained the entire process with us and helped with anything she could. Donna is very easy-going and laid back, and definitely would recommend her!"



"Prior to working with Donna, we met with two other agents from other agencies. We just weren't happy with their lack of knowledge, so to speak. We later met with Donna and from the first showing, we knew she was the right agent for us. She is honest and truly has her clients best interest in mind. She has a tremendous amount of knowledge, not just in the buying process, but regarding homes in general. Donna was able to step into a home and immediately see things that were questionable and point them out. As first time home buyers, this was important to us. Donna is very easy going and very personable. She is truly a pleasure to work with. She was so incredibly patient with us. We offered on 6 homes before we finally closed! It took a total of 8 months to find the perfect home and she never once pressured us. When we walked into our new home, she knew right away it was the home for us and was truly as excited as we were. I can't say enough about her. I would definitely recommend her!"



"Donna was extremely helpful at navigating all the aspects of selling my home. She knows the market very well and we were able to get a very good price on our home, plus it sold very quickly because she gave me great advice on preparing my home for showing it's best assets. I really appreciated her attention to details during the negotiation process, it gave me the sense that she had our backs. She's a pro and has a great sense of humor. I will definitely reach out to her for my next move."



"Donna does her homework! Before viewing my first place, she had all of the market research done. She also knew just what questions to ask. During the whole process she was always there for me, helping me make my own decisions but giving me the support that I needed. I highly recommend her!!!"



"As a first time home buyer I had zero knowledge of the process of not only buying a home but also acquiring a mortgage. Donna walked me right through the process with out any issues. Even when I needed to find a loan officer, attorney, home inspector, etc. Donna always provided a great recommendation.

All the paperwork was clarified and made easy, and so was scheduling showings. Four months into my new home and I couldn't be happier."

"Home Seller who closed in Niles
Donna was great. She was very easy to deal with and would definitely use her in the future."



"Home Seller who closed in Niles
Donna is an exceptional person in addition to being a very knowledgeable agent. Donna truly cares about people and it made her the perfect partner for selling my mother’s home of 48 years. She was at times a therapist and friend as well as our real estate agent. Donna actually came over in jeans and a tee shirt and helped me empty things out of the basement for 3 hours before she even listed the house. She clearly went above and beyond the call of duty many times, and she did it with a smile. You are lucky to have such a person working for you. I wish I lived in the area so I could use her again. Donna Plank handled every situation that came up in the process by explaining our options, and giving us sound advice. She had a very good understanding of our needs and objectives."

"House buyer who closed in Des Plaines
She was very knowledgeable and explained things well to us. I felt like she was a great advocate for us and was always willing to help and answer questions where needed. Very thankful for the house we got and the experience we had!"



"Home seller who closed in Park Ridge
Unbelievable!!! Donna goes above and beyond!! After we listed our house a concern a potential buyer brought up was the old oil tank in the crawl space. Donna worked with us getting it removed. The house was our parents. We also determined that we didn't have keys for the front door. She handled working with a local locksmith to install new locks. She also helped with suggesting Estate Sales companies and when furniture didn't sell she posted it on the Park Ridge Facebook page. She also helped coordinate the donation of beds to a local family in need. Pick an agent that provides service and doesn't boast about quantity of houses sold! PICK DONNA!!"
