When my husband and I fell in love with a cottage in 2010, we were first-time buyers, self-employed, and terrified. In that state I contacted Donna Mahoney, explaining that with our complete lack of experience we needed someone to hold our hand every step of the way, and was she willing to do that?

Without any hesitation, Donna took us on, guiding us through the many steps we needed to take, encouraging us, patiently answering all our questions, standing by us until that wonderful day when our dream became reality and we owned our own place on our own land. Five years later it was time for us to take the next step: after decades of renting in town, we would try to find a house we could afford in the part of town we wanted to live in.

Still self-employed, which always makes purchasing a home more challenging, I unhesitatingly contacted Donna. Within minutes of my email to her, Donna wrote back asking the relevant preparatory questions and helping us get ready to put in an offer.

With her typical calm, professional way of doing things, she helped us prepare documents, patiently doing and re-doing the math with us, finding the best terms, the best mortgage rates, and working against time because we had the additional stress of having to meet our seller’s very tight deadline.

We moved into the perfect house in July 2015. Looking back today, I know we could never have managed these two huge challenges without Donna’s expertise and moral support. And on top of all that, we seem to have a better mortgage rate for each of our properties than anyone else I’ve ever spoken to! Five out of five stars for Donna Mahoney!!
