Donna: I appreciate all of your help and your no pressure style. I hope to work with you some more in the not too distant future. Georgia
Dear Donna, This is awesome!! You are awesome!! We have never had anyone do 1/10 of this much and you have just started. You obviously love and know what you are doing. We are so impressed with you and what you have done with this. You can be sure that if we ever decide to sell our cabin, you will be the person we call!! Thank you very much, and we enjoyed meeting you and talking with you! Alabama
Donna Yates was thorough, professional, and extremely knowledgeable of the counties and lakes, it was a total suprise to us that we even found what we did, and were able to get such a great deal. Donna was just great! Georgia
"Our New Year has started very well. Hope yours has been good. It has been such a blessing to sell the cabin. We are so grateful to have been blessed with you as our agent. Thank you for your continued thoughtfulness." Georgia
Wow, Donna, you're the bomb on the North Georgia Blue Ridge market! You've got my referrals with that much knowledge!!! Florida
Donna helped us throughout our search and would check all details or questions I had. She made the experience exceptionally easy. Georgia
You are a whiz! Thanks. Everything needs the smell and touch test from this distance everything is tough. We know we don't want to do allot of work... Thanks again for all you do. I found a winner. Georgia
"Hello Donna: We are all doing fine, and we're surely enjoying this new home. I know Joe is ever so eager to get to the outside work that desperately needs to be done, and that work will start in the spring. But the inside is pretty much settled in, and it is surely feeling like home. We surely know who to recommend whenever they need a realtor." Georgia
"Our new year started off great - the baby, Andrew, came two weeks early on the 29th, and New Year's Day we came home from the hospital. It has been a great year so far! I know that Summer and John are very happy there. ...we hope your holidays were quiet and peaceful and full of family and loved ones. We will definitely keep your number handy for our future in Blue Ridge/Gilmer, as well as let others know! We've already talked to some of our friends here about contacting you. Thanks again, and Happy New Year!" Florida
"Praise God! His Son has come to save us! We'll be up for Christmas. Stop by if you're showing the blue roof house! We are so happy with our cabin
and grateful for His blessings to us, including you. Love, Barry, Jackie, Joshua (Raisin and Percy say "hi") Florida
"James, I have to tell you Donna went above and beyond her job description to help us out. I am not saying I expect that from you but it was really nice of her. She was able to help us out and for that reason I wanted to deal with her. ... she would try to recommend someone she felt was trust worthily. She picked you and I already feel she picked the right person. Let's hope we can get something started and start a great friend ship along the way. Thank you." Florida
"We were fortunate to be introduced to Donna and promptly asked her to be our real estate agent in January 2009. We purchased our dream mountain home in Blue Ridge Georgia within 3 months of beginning our search and closing. The fast time line was due to her vast knowledge of the area and professionalism. It is my opinion we would not have been successful in our search without her and we would absolutely use Donna again and would certainly recommend her to any friends and family members." Georgia
"Donna is an agent with innovative ideas and knows how to use the latest in technology to benefit her clients. She is always looking for new ways to promote her clients and is always willing to help other agents do the same for their clients. She's a wonderful teacher, a trustworthy agent and always cheerful." Georgia
