    My Client Testimonials

    Donna was absolutely amazing to work with. This sale had several bumps, however, I was fortunate to have Donna's assistance at every turn. The house was listed as planned and multiple offers came in the same day. ~ Allen, Jackson Township, NJ
    Donna truly made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. Her attention and dedication was evident throughout. She was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. She made me feel supported and guided throughout. Thank you, Donna! ~ Chelsea
    For a long time I wanted to find a job that wasnt just about making money but I love helping people. I volunteered for 10yrs on a first aid squad because I felt the need to take care of people but I did not want to have a job in the medical field. For years I was debating on whether or not to go into real estate because I love things about all different kinds of houses since my father was a contractor almost my whole life. When I met Donna and saw all the ways she helped us and how much she put her heart into it I made my decision of becoming a realtor because its not about just selling someone a house, its about finding them a home. ~ Diane Kanca, Howell NJ
    Very good. Very professional ~ Lee Gamboni. North Carolina
    Donna was responsible for both the sale and purchase of our homes. I could not recommend her enough. She was a wealth of knowledge, resources, and incredibly professional. We will never use another realtor. Our sale ONLY went through due to Donna and the lawyer she recommended. She got us into our dream home and sold our last home way over asking, all during an insane real estate market. She is punctual, hardworking, and very good handling high pressure situations with a level head. ~ Hannah, Brick, NJ
    I meet Donna one day walking into a open house just to take a look around. Little did I know I just meet the women who would change me and my daughter lives forever. I didnt think I was ready to buy just yet but Donna set me strait. She told me about programs and property values and everything that she thought Would be perfect for me. I wasnt spending half a mil but from the level of service Donna gave me one would have thought her commission was based off a 2 million dollar sale. Anyway as time went on things got tough, properties where going multiple ask my loan wasnt the easiest do to student loans, but nonetheless Donna was right there the entire time never left my side. I would literally call her in a beautiful Sunday afternoon in the middle of July when she was with her family and she would always pick up or call me back even if it was just to say John I got this relax its ok. This is why I say she is my friend, she never treated me like a client ever. She even gave me some tough love when I needed it. Anyway the perfect property came 1 block from the beach and guess what Donna made it happen. Donna is the type of agent that literally reads the fine print SO YOU DONT HAVE TO. She had caught something with regard to a type of loan I was getting that no one had seen not even the people who should have seen it. It wasnt Donnas job to go read that but she did thank god. Words can not describe the lengths Donna will go to ensure you are well taken care of from beginning to end. As I said before what she did for my daughter and I We will never forget. She made our dream come true LITERALLY!! Thank you Donna Ava and I will never ever forget you. John and Ava. ~ John Vicente Keansburg

    The John Wick of real estate. The best. Dont waste your time with anyone else. ~ Jake Latyschow
    Our house was a difficult house to sell because of the custom aspects built into it. Donna stuck with the process of showing and re-showing the house to several clients until the right buyer showed up and Donna completed the sale. Donna was most helpful in our sale as she was local and knew about the area. She was polite and easy to work with. I would recommend Donna Manetta because she was professional, and seemed to really care about our feelings of selling our house. ~ Russ and Pat Collum Weeki Wachee, Fl.

    Meeting Donna was the greatest stroke of luck in this whole house-buying process. We found her on a lark and we knew from that very first phone call that she was the agent for us. She helped us find our home in July, and after connecting us with the lawyer and lender, we were able to close by August! This experience would not have been possible without her, and we could not be more grateful. She found us our home. (August 2017-Home purchase in Keyort)
    From the first minute I spoke with Donna I knew she was the agent for us. Some of the homes we were interested in, Donna had already seen and been inside and was able to give us some insight. She always made herself readily available and made sure things got done...fast! It did not take us long before we found the right home. She helped me find the home, lender, and lawyer to help us close quickly. We first met her in early July and by the end of August we were able to close on our home. We can't thank her enough. This woman will go above and beyond to find you the perfect home. What a wonderful experience!! (August 2017-imsbelly- Purcahsed in Keyport)
