"Donna is a professional through and through. Even though this is a sellers' market she didn't take any shortcuts, hired a really good photographer, put ads in the local flyer, gave solid advice regarding staging the house and managed all aspects of the sale very well. I could not have asked for anything better. I trusted Donna with everything and she never disappointed me. She helped me navigate the various offers, gave solid advice, shoveled my deck when it snowed the day the photographer came and even helped me move some boxes! She takes her responsibility for the sale of your house seriously and communicated very well throughout the process. I would recommend Donna Forest without any reservation whatsoever." - S.M.

"The sale of our vacation home on Maple Street is our third experience with Donna Forest. The first two were on the buy side and this transaction was on the sell side. Once again, Donna was terrific in how she handled the process from the early stages of guiding us on how to prepare for the sale and then during the showings and final contract negotiations. Donna is very knowledgeable and experienced which is helpful when difficult decisions need to be made. I like working with Donna because she is a good communicator, seeks input, provides guidance and she cares about her clients." ~ Rob Werge, Maple Street, Sunapee (Buyer & Seller)
