Testimonials Page

When we started looking for our 1st house, we came across few homes and contacted some realtors through email. Donna responded instantly. She has always been fast in her communication whether by phone or email. She understood our needs pretty well and showed us houses to our need and price range. She was very patient and understanding. She did everything to make sure our house buying process was as smooth as possible. She is very ethical and motivated. She treats her clients as her friends and keeps in touch even after the sale is done. In fact Donna and her husband Dan helped in setting up couple of items at home which no other realtor would do. I rate her 10/10. Arnab Banerjee
As first time home buyers, my husband and I felt very confident and comfortable with Donna as our agent. She was a great communicator with quick response time and helping us through the process. She went above and beyond by keeping an eye on a house not yet on the market which she thought would be a good fit for us and got us in for the first showing. Thirty days later we closed! Colleen
Donna was recommended to us by friends whom she had helped with a difficult house purchase a few years ago. When it appeared their purchase would fall through at the last minute, Donna managed to save the sale and our friends' sanity! Our own house purchase was not nearly as dramatic; but as first-time home buyers, we were extremely grateful for all the advice and support Donna provided us. She was always cheerful, incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and understanding. She also made sure we knew what we were getting into in terms of budgeting for a mortgage and other related costs. We were fortunate to find a beautiful place that we fell in love with after only a couple of weeks searching, Donna remained constantly in touch with us during the closing process and afterwards. She even recommended a wonderful home inspector who was extremely helpful in spotting a few things that needed to be corrected by the seller before we closed on the sale. In addition to her professionalism and knowledge, Donna also regularly goes above and beyond for her clients. Even a year after the sale, she keeps in touch with us. She even gave us a Christmas wreath for our front door, as well as the best housewarming gift we got- a handmade kitchen crock personalized with our names and a picture of our home. It's these personal touches that set Donna above all other realtors we've encountered. We can't recommend her enough! Agent response V & G
After several corporate relocations and experiences with different Realtors, we were certainly cautious about being "assigned" a Realtor for this relocation. Donna was such a breath of fresh air for us. We immediately "clicked" - she knew how to quickly assess our needs, what we were looking for and how to translate that to a value-added home search. Being new to the area, her input was invaluable and she always customized it towards our needs. We always felt we were one of her most important clients. Before and after the sale, her follow-up was impeccable; we always felt we could contact her with any questions, concerns, and ideas. She simply made everything with our move so easy - its such a disruptive period, having someone who is responsive and knowledgeable to ease your primary concerns is so helpful. You will truly enjoy working with Donna, we highly recommend her! - Renee and David V.
Dear Mr Bunbury, As a former owner of a company we know valuable employees are to your success. This is why we are writing to express our complete satisfaction with Donna Hermsen. A little background on the history of our home at 7809 Cobblestone Circle, Middleton. The house had been on the market for one full year, we had vacated athe house on November 1 and moved to S.C. When it was time to to list again, with a 3rd agent, in January, I spent considerable time on the internet trying to find a new agent. I was impressed with Donna's bio and called her to take a look at the house. Our two sons were in the process of installing some updated light fixtures and were at the house when Donna & Dan looked at it. We also had another agent/team from another agency look at the house while our sons were there. After talking to Donna and the other agent, and asking our sons for their opinion of which agent to list with, it was unanimous that Donna was the choice. I was very anxious listing with anyone, and not meeting them and being so far away (S.C.) from the property. Donna was fantastic, she kept us informed of every showing, she followed up with each possible interested party and her negotiations with the selling agent were very professional. The closing couldn't have gone smoother. All paperwork was done via email, and she was prompt and excellent in any answers to questions we had. I will recommend her to anyone I know back in Middleton/Madison area that is thinking of selling or buying a home. Sincerely, Gloria Kuehn Testimonial Gloria Kuehn
Donna & Dan worked extremely hard and they never slowed down or let up on showing my home. Donna & Dan go above and beyond when you list your property with them. They advertise your house in every possible publication and they don't let up in listing it continuously. Donna & Dan have open house showings more that any other Realtor, and they are ALWAYS available. Donna & Dan really showed their knowledge, expertise and professionalism when the offer to buy came in. They looked out for my interests and they were creative in drawing up the counter offer. This really impressed me as countering is a risky move but they knew what to do for me and not lose the sale. Donna & Dan are "true blue" and honest. You can trust them with every detail. I would RECOMMEND Donna & Dan for a REALTOR. Especially after my experiences with previous Realtors. They are the ONLY REALTOR. Donna & Dan follow through 100% with everything they say they will and they are committed to representing the interests of their clients. - Morgan Mortensen 608-233-5723 Morgan Mortenson
Our experience with you two was terrific! You were professional, knowledgeable, and not pushy. You were readily available for questions and were prompt and thorough with your answers. Since you were our agent when we bought, you will definitely be our first choice if we sell. A great example of your professionalism was when we put in an offer, which was rejected, then you immediately put in another offer which the seller would accept. I work in sales and knowing your clients, prices/buying point and working with that to put together a deal is exemplary. The best is that throughout the process, you were not pushy. - Steve & Hannah Cottage Grove Steve & Hannah
We met Dan at an open house and were very impressed with his knowledge about the local market, his helpfulness in answering our questions, and his sincerity. When we decided to take the plunge and look for our first house, the team of Dan & Donna was our first choice for a Buyer's Agent. We were just as impressed with Donna as we were with Dan. Donna noticed a problem with the title that could have delayed our closing if she had not caught it so soon, and they helped us negotiate an excellent price for a wonderful house, as well as a much needed roof replacement as part of the contract. Their competence and professionalism helped make our first house purchase much less stressful, because we knew they were really looking out for us every step of the way. When it comes time to sell our house, Dan & Donna will be our first call. - Sarah Hartman & Josh Moran Middleton, WI 608-347-5582 Sarah Hartman & Josh Moran
I have known Donna & Dan for five years. We met at an open house in 2002. I found them to have a wonderful disposition, very knowledgeable and foremost extremely honest. Donna sold my first condo in two weeks and my second condo in two days. Her willingness to help me had made the buying and selling process simple and painless. Donna is someone who can price your property to sell and still meet your financial requirements. If you are looking for an agent who is intelligent, reliable and sensitive to your needs, give Donna & Dan a call. - Cindy Talbot Cindy Talbot

Its not often that I take the time to acknowledge a person or group of people in their performance of their specific job. But in this case I want to make an exception. Both of you made my life allot easier during a very difficult time for me. You both walked me through the difficulty and made it easy for me to achieve my goal. I was hard pressed to find a place to live that was affordable and close to my work. You did both and in a short period of time, plus got me the financing that was necessary to close the deal. I loved the personal care you gave me. You know Nick Haley was great to work with too, so much energy and very knowledgeable. Countrywide Home Loans worked with speed and execution making the closing a snap. I tip my hat to them too. But it was the two of you that put it all together and the savings made it really worth it. Thank you so much. Working with you was a pleasure. Plus if you ever get a break, you know you have a home cooked meal from me, and I can cook, ya know. - Scott A. Louther Scott A Louther
Dear Donna Thank you very much for your wonderful help in finding the perfect home! Jeremy and I were and are so pleased with the results of our search and purchase. While I could probably write a short story on our experiences, I'll try to keep it fairly brief- First and foremost, you made the experience fun. During the time of our search there was a lot out there to look at and it was easy to contact you for appointments and showings, and while talking with you about the location or the home details it was apparent you knew what you were talking about. Even as we continued to look at home after home, it was always pleasurable to view with you as our guide. Not only did this relationship make the process easier; it was a lot less stressful than it could have been. We made offers on two locations before hitting the right price on the third. With each offer we were escorted into the RBA office in Middleton, made comfortable, and never rushed to make a decision. It was great to leave the paperwork to the professionals and I know we were very happy with your organization and ability to get everything together in a timely manner. As we made offers, with your help, we dealt with other realty agents and sometimes I couldn't believe the excuses they came up with (for delays, ect.)!! We love the piece you gave as a house warming gift - having our home depicted on the crock was such a sweet surprise. Thank you again for thinking of us. And you continue to check up on us, which is nice. It is wonderful to know that there are people out there who care and that you're definitely one of those people. Donna, you're great at what you do and we would definitely recommend your services to anyone who asked! Katie & Jeremy
