Listed and sold a home

She sold my house in 6 weeks, even though it was around 9/11/01. I did not have to have open houses. Her video of the house is what sold it.

Helped me buy and sell homes

We have bought and sold many homes with her and her attention to detail has always given us the edge.

Helped me buy home

I was relocating from the Northeast US to Lake County for work, and found this house on the internet. Donna's posting was VERY informative with wonderful pictures of the house. While still back east, I worked with Donna and another realtor in her office to learn what I needed to know about the property, buy the house, negotiate a very non-conventional purchase option with the seller, do all the pre-closing work (inspections etc) and schedule the closing, all through the phone and emails! I arrived in Lake County the day before the closing. My first time entering the house was on the pre-closing walk through! I was very comfortable purchasing the house sight-unseen, and the entire process was smooth and enjoyable! This is a testament to the skill, experience, professionalism, and wonderful personality of Donna and her associate! I LOVE the house and hope to stay here for MANY MANY years, but I will definately call Donna in the future for any real estate needs!

Donna is everything a person could wish for in an agent. Both highly professional and also extremely nice to work with. She has so much experience and knowledge that it would be almost impossible to do better. I whole-heartedly recommend Donna Radke as a trusted real estate partner.

Helped me buy home

My husband and I were very fortunate to work with Donna Radke during our home search. Donna was extremely patient with us and never rushed us to purchase a home. We were able to view a variety of houses and finally find one that fit our needs. We are extremely grateful for Donna's expertise - we would highly recommend Donna as a dependable Realtor that will work with you to make searching for a house less stressful.
