    Satisfaction Rating An agent's star rating is the average of all the ratings of their service.
    Originally from Pennsylvania, and by way of West Virginia and Tennessee, I became a resident of Hampton Roads in 1980. After having a family, and raising four kids in this area, I feel my insight can help others find that perfect home.
    For 15 years as a Custom Home Builder, I helped people with the choices and decisions in building their dream home. For 10 years I was a mortgage loan officer where I thoroughly enjoyed educating people on their many lending options and helping them get through the process with ease and understanding.
    Whether you have a growing family and need more space, are downsizing as "empty-nesters", or relocating for your employment, I will help make the transition as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
    I look forward to sharing the buying or selling experience with you to make it seamless and fun. With me, its personal.

    Karen gave Donna 5 stars out of 5
    We were very lucky to have the pleasure of working with such a outstanding, caring and knowledgeable realtor. From day one Donna advised us and worked with us on selling our home. Donna made every aspect of the sale effortless. She was only a phone call away 24/7 if we had any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend Donna Dodd on all levels purchasing or selling a home. Donna is definitely a pro!!

    Donna provided exceptional service during the selling process. She left nothing to chance and managed all the details for us, no matter how small. I'm thankful for her expert advice and professional follow through.

    Donna is a fantastic realtor! This was my first home, and she made the entire process a breeze! If a problem would arise, she was quick to find a solution to keep things moving. She is extremely kind, easy to talk to, and very knowledgeable. She answered all my questions day and night (and trust me, there were many questions!). She is very trustworthy and patient, and always put me/my needs first! It was clear from day 1 she was dedicated to helping my buy my first home through her quick responses and awesome negotiating skills with the seller's relator. I highly recommend Donna to anyone buying a home - she is the best! Thanks Donna!

    Looking back at it, we probably should have bought the first house Donna showed us. We were referred to Donna and from the very first meeting we appreciated her deep knowledge of the area. We felt comfortable and she understood what we wanted in our next home. The first home she showed us that was exactly what we asked for. Of course we thought about it for a bit, but by the time we were ready to bid, it was already under contract. Summer of 2021 was a crazy time to be house hunting. The market was tight and houses were going fast and selling for over asking price. Over the course of the next few weeks, we virtually looked at a lot of places, and followed up the good ones with in-person viewings. Throughout the whole process Donna kept communications at just the right level - just often enough and relevant enough that we knew she was actively trying to match us up. In June, Donna found us the perfect home at asking price and near perfect terms. She also helped us find a good financial agent and a very thorough and helpful home inspector. As luck would have it, our new home is literally right next door to the first house she brought to our attention! I wonder if they'd trade? I would and have recommended Donna to everyone.

    Donna was great to work with from start to finish. From listing my home to the closing date she was always a phone call away. I would recommend Donna for selling or purchasing a home. Will be using her again when I purchase my next home.

    Hands down, Donna, is an all-star! Since our first home she has treated us like family. Answered all of our questions. Responsive 24/7. Will go above and beyond to make sure you are well taken care of. Her negotiating skills are excellent! I have nothing but respect, she certainly knows my family well by now and we always stay in touch. She will always be my number 1 realtor.

    Donna first represented my wife and me as buyers for a condo to have as a retirement get-away very close to Colonial Williamsburg. The selection was perfect and the processes implemented by Donna were well planned and executed. She is highly knowledgeable of the local area, careful with each detail from contract to completion. Trustworthiness, immediate response to questions and issues are so evident in the professionalism demonstrated by Donna. We were so fortunate to additionally experience her sincere dedication to us as sellers this past Spring. She carefully took and chose interior photos and immediately posted our property. The listing resulted in four showings in less than 24 hours and 3 offers, two of which were in excess of asking price. Donna had the best approach to negotiations and guided us confidently through the selling process. Her excellent communication skills and dedication to us as clients (both buyers and sellers) were much appreciated leading us to a successful real estate experience in both a very competitive and challenging market. We are completely satisfied and so fortune to have had two Donna as our realtor.

    We met Donna 2 years ago at an open house. We were looking for a rental at the time, but Donna was so friendly and helpful that we remembered her when it came time to buy. She has such a warm and positive demeanor, and never once pressured us to buy a house we didn't feel was the perfect fit. I would highly recommend Donna to anyone looking for a realtor in the Wburg/Hampton Roads area. She is very knowledgeable about the area and has expertise on the builder/mortgage side as well. With Donna, you will always feel like you are her only client. She is quick to respond to whatever you need along the way! Thank you Donna!

    Craig gave Donna 5 stars out of 5
    We learned about Donna at an Open House and after talking with her we knew she was the realtor that we wanted to work with. She's the most honest, considerate, compassionate, and knowledgeable agent in her stressful business. Never once did she try to "talk" us into buying something that really wasn't the one we "would be happy in". She would often say to us, "What matters at the end of the day is, will YOU be happy here?" She promptly returned our calls/text messages and always made us feel like we were her only clients. Through the difficult situations in real estate transactions she remains level-headed and considerate of all parties involved.. Donna truly is willing to go the extra mile to ensure her clients are happy in their new home. We are so very happy and thankful to Donna.

    Nancy gave Donna 5 stars out of 5
    With our recent move to Williamsburg, we have purchased eight homes but have never had a realtor of the caliber of Donna Dodd. She was exceptional at all aspects of the buying process. From the very beginning, it was obvious that her goal was to find us a home that we would love, not to just sell us a house. She worked tirelessly on our behalf and cared deeply that we find the right home. Donna truly listens and quickly became so in tune with our needs that we felt confident making an offer on a home we had not seen in person. Her knowledge of the area and expertise in all aspects of real estate were critical in negotiations on a house in a hot market. Even after the contract was signed, Donna continued to support us and guide us to the closing. Donna demonstrated a level of commitment that is rarely seen and has our highest recommendation.

    I have purchased several homes in the past, and I thought I was pretty well informed on the process. I must confess that Donna was invaluable in pointing out potential pitfalls, and teaching me a few things that saved us money, and got us into a great home. I highly recommend Donna, and you will be very happy if she represents you. I give her an A+, and that's an honest grade, not just an idle compliment. She knows the area, and really wants to produce for her clients. She really does care, and is not happy until you are happy. We are extremely pleased that we chose Donna to represent us as a buyer's agent. You will be too!

    Donna was amazing. She was so helpful and knowledgeable. It was clear by her recommendations that she listened to what we were looking for. She communicated with us clearly and timely. I know many people say buying a house is one of the most stressful things you can do. Honestly, with Donna's help it was an enjoyable and exciting process. During the buying process it was so relieving to know that Donna was in our corner. She really had our best interests in mind when negotiating on our behalf. We bought our dream house in a beautiful location when we thought it was out of our reach. I have already recommended Donna's services to my friends and will continue to do so in the future.

    Donna was great to work with. Donna was our agent for selling our house and the purchase of our new house. It was very evident that Donna is a true professional in her field. Donna made our process of selling and buying a house nearly seamless and always available to answer questions. We highly recommend Donna for selling or purchasing a house.

    Best realtor EVER!!!🤗 We had a difficult time finding a home, & getting a mortgage. My son-in-law just got his green card, & every step of the process was difficult. With her previous knowledge of mortgages, & brokers, she worked her magic. Every house we submitted a bid for was already under contract. We got discouraged, but Donna stayed focused, positive, & worked even harder to help us. Donna is a wonderful human being, a treasured friend, a consummate professional in every way! We couldn't appreciate her more, or recommend her more highly!! Look no further, she is your realtor. Guaranteed! Thanks again, Donna. You're the best!!!

    Donna is not your average realtor. She did not try and "sell" us anything just to score a payday. She cared so much about finding the perfect house for my wife and I that she worked with us for over a year to find the right one. When we were thinking about putting an offer on one house, she candidly told us that it was not a good idea. When we finally stumbled into a house that seemed too good to be true, she told us to act fast and helped put together an offer that landed us the house of our dreams. I never had a doubt that she had our best interests at heart. This was our first home purchase, and we had no clue what we were doing. Donna explained things at every step of the process, and she never made us feel pressured or guilty for saying no to a house. We are super thankful to have had such an amazing human being guide us on this journey!

She is effecient and is willing to go above and beyond for her clients. I would recommend Donna to anyone who is looking for an outstanding realtor!
