I just bought a home in Round Rock under the expert guidance of Donna Ciccarelli with Realty Austin. Donna is a great negotiator; she took care of every detail when representing me with the builder, mortgage and title company as if the home I was buying was her very own; ensured that I had a high-quality house, at the best price, with the highest level of customer service I have ever experienced. Donna treated me as if I was part of her family, and I can recommend her without question. Thank you, Donna!

Donna and her team fully delivered from start to finish. If you want top dollar for your home, they are the ones to use. They have all the real estate knowledge you need, which can save you so much money and headaches in the long run. Plus, they really know how to whip your home into shape; their staging process is amazing! I made a huge profit when we sold my house and actually enjoyed the whole process (which we all know how selling a home can be treacherous)! Donna will be your agent plus a lifelong friend who really cares. I give them two thumbs up! Thanks again, Donna and team!

I wanted to share my experience working with Donna. I worked with her on two sales and two purchases of properties. First, I want to say that she is the sweetest lady, and always a pleasure to work with. Most importantly, she is very professional and goes above and beyond my expectations. I live in Waco, and she made herself available for appointments in my absence and assisted in any way necessary while I was remote. She is very knowledgeable and brought things to my attention when needed, so I trust and respect her representation. I'm an investor, and I look forward to working with Donna again. I recommend her as a real estate agent to new and experienced buyers/sellers alike.

When I left Austin ten years ago, I decided to rent out my condo. This year property management became an issue, so I decided to sell and needed an agent. I got a few names from a real estate agent friend where I live now. Donna Ciccarelli had helped my friend’s nephew when his family moved to Austin, and they recommended her highly.

I knew I would work with Donna the first time I talked to her. She got to work immediately and told me how things would work. This was my first property sale, so I didn’t know very much. She was great to work with and was able to answer all my questions off the top of her head. It’s clear she’s done this for a while. One thing that impressed me from the beginning was that Donna wanted to be thorough and fair; to understand the state of the property and what disclosures had to be made. Donna’s valuation estimate was based on solid analysis. When the buyer’s agent attempted to lowball, Donna’s detailed work stood up. The final price was very close to her estimate. She also accurately estimated closing costs and gave me a complete breakdown.

Donna made the initial calls to the tenants who are renting the condo. She called me back with a very pleasant message; the tenants wanted to buy. So the process was easier than it might’ve been. Even so, Donna did a great job of keeping me informed and keeping the buyers informed. It seemed like they turned to her for a lot of advice. Of course, problems came up. Donna found a solution to each quickly and efficiently, explaining the issue, alternative solutions, and implications of each choice. There was no attitude: accept the problem, decide on alternative, present to buyers ASAP.

While my sale was pending, Donna and her team did whatever was needed, whenever it was needed. Whatever medium was appropriate. Email, phone, text, DocuSign. Several or all when she needed to get my attention. She gracefully accommodated my unavailability the week before closing (unavoidable but I won’t do it again!). She had tradesmen in her network that were able to advise or fix as needed at the few repairs that came up and do it quickly. My real estate agent friend kept an eye on what was going on and even came to closing with me. She’s not an easy person to please, but she was impressed with Donna. I believe her agency will recommend Donna when their customers need a representative in Austin. If I ever have a real estate transaction in Austin, I know I’ll call Donna.

Donna is Fabulous. She went over and beyond our expectations. Donna is extremely knowledgeable and just a super fantastic nice person. Angela and I both feel extremely lucky to have found her and are extremely thankful for all she did for us in bringing the purchase of our first home to a close.

Donna changed my life. I didn’t know anything about the selling process, and the paperwork seemed overwhelming, but Donna was with me every step of the way. I needed a lot of help and was on a time crunch. She took over and made everything happen. The day she held my open house, we received several bids. Not only did I get my asking price, but I also got much more. Donna helped me get through one of my lowest points and turned it into a positive, empowering experience. For that, I am forever grateful. She genuinely cares and wants the best for everyone. She is hands-on and helps with everything from start to finish.

Donna was a pleasure to work with, and she really considered my families needs. She was professional and took what was a stressful situation and made it seem effortless. Donna was a hard worker and really knows her stuff. My kids grew very fond of Donna, and she even became a part of the family. Buying our home became a family affair. Donna will be the person we will go to our next house.

I am beyond pleased to recommend the Donna and Richard Team of Realty Austin. Richard Fowler is an outstanding Realtor whose sharp expertise and personal touch allowed us to sell our home in a very short time. He worked tirelessly to promote our house and advocated aggressively for us in all offers. In the end, my husband and I were very happy with our resulting offer. While he may say he became too invested in us, we appreciate his extraordinary level of care as our Realtor.

Donna Ciccarelli was absolutely fabulous. She toured our home once and with her sharp eye and background in design, Donna immediately knew the best way to stage our home. I couldn't believe the way she utilized some of our own possessions in combination with her own staging materials. All of our house photos stood out in vast contrast to the other house photos on the market. Every person viewing our home left positive comments about how it was staged. I do not doubt that part of the reason we sold it was because of her hand in amplifying our home's beauty. These two are wonderful. I would unconditionally recommend Donna and Richard to anyone.

This is the third property I've acquired or sold with Donna, and she is simply the best Realtor in Austin. Donna and her assistant, Anastasia, kept me organized and informed along the process with outstanding customer service and they tracked the status of all milestones and were always easy to find when I had questions. Donna knows her stuff. I bought a relatively new construction home a few years back with Donna, and this time we purchased one built in the 1930s. And Donna knew a lot more than the owners and the sellers about these homes (particularly the details surrounding homes in historic districts). Finally, because of Donna’s experience, we were able to win a multi-offer opportunity and overcome multiple challenges in the negotiations, conditions and escrow processes.

We could not be more pleased with Donna. When my wife and I moved into our previous house several years ago, we had another real estate agent who we felt did a good job, but now that we’ve experienced working with Donna, we can’t imagine using anyone else! She’s spoiled us for other agents! I’m sure that there were times during the process that my wife and I could have been accurately described as “high-maintenance,” but Donna was never anything less than patient, pleasant, and helpful. She assisted us through some indecision without being pushy, and she even watched over our children when we needed a moment to look through a home. If scientists were to create the perfect real estate agent in a laboratory, gifting that person with the ideal personality and skills for the job, the result would be Donna Ciccarelli. We’re telling everyone we know how amazing she is!

We were referred to Donna by my cousin and his wife. Donna has been a delight to work with and very accommodating for us. This has been a difficult "interstate move, " but I don't know if they are ever easy. Once we were ready to make a move and get our house on the market, Donna has been there for us. She worked with us and our daughter to find a home in the area. Donna has been reassuring and patient, and we felt she had our best interests in mind. She was not out to merely sell us a house but was looking for a home according to our somewhat strict specifications. Once we finally found and agreed on a place she held our hands and made sure we understood and were comfortable with all that was going on. I have to say the selling agent and family were a little difficult to work with. But she stepped in and buffered us from a lot of that hassle, and we appreciate that. All the way up through the closing she was there to double check and make sure we were being well represented and got the best deal we could. We will refer Donna to our friends and family when the occasion arises. We hope that we remain friends and associates into the future.

Donna and Richard team, I couldn't have been more blessed or fortunate to work with them! The communication was phenomenal, and the vast selection of homes made it possible for me to choose a home fit for my family. As an active duty military member, they worked with my hectic schedule and ensured my needs were met.

Donna did an outstanding job of selling our property. Her attention to detail and her personal touch made the process of selling unbelievably smooth. She is a true professional, and I would recommend anyone to use Realty Austin and Donna as their agent.

Rodney Leer

Donna Ciccarelli is truly a different kind of real estate professional. She provides analysis' like an engineer, she combs through real estate contracts like a corporate lawyer, she delivers personal attention like you are her only client. My 23 years in residential financing gave me the opportunity to manage more than 21,000 home loan closings. Through all that, I have seen and dealt some outstanding real estate agents. Donna even tops the fine agents in this category. I moved my family to Austin from Houston nearly two years ago. During this time, houses were on and off the market at a frenetic pace, especially in the communities we targeted. Without Donna, I might still be living at the Embassy Suites and looking for a home. She patrolled the listings and her network hourly until she found a brief window of opportunity. Thanks to her, we were able to pounce on it faster than anybody else. Through skillful negotiations, she protected my family and our assets like it was all her own. I was equally pleased to get to know her as a kind, hard-working, and honest person.

Derek and Debbie Aramburu

Donna is the best realtor in the Austin area! My husband and I have used her as buyers and sellers and have been extremely pleased both times. She is a pleasure to work with, as is her team, and really cares about her clients. I would HIGHLY recommend Donna!

Brian and Erin Jarrett

I have known Donna both personally and professionally for over 10 years and recommend her highly to anyone looking to buy, sell or refinance. You would be hiring someone who is friendly, trustworthy, hard working who has the knowledge and experience to get the job done right.

Joanne Mayo

Donna is AWESOME! She is the most dedicated realtor that I know. Works tirelessly for her clients to get the best deal possible. I have used her for two home purchases and a sale, and can tell you that she definitely knows what she is doing.

Suzanne Jaster

Working with Donna was so easy and she truly cared about both us as the seller and her buyer. It was a pleasure working with her on our fast and smooth sale!

Dustin and Nicole Binnicker

Donna (and only one other) stood out among 20+ realtors with whom we spoke as we shopped for realtors by going to open houses. She made us feel like people she was genuinely trying to help. She easily demonstrated her expertise in the world of real estate. She sold two homes for us and helped us find our Forever Home in Killeen. Thank you, Donna.

Bob

I worked for a local newspaper for a dozen years, was active in the Cedar Park and Leander Chambers, was member of a large church, and also the Austin Yacht Club and ALL had me bumping shoulders with NICE Realtors, so when I needed to choose a Realtor…well, it was tough. I chose Donna Ciccarelli, first of all, because she’s a sweet…pit bull. Yep, put her in the fray and wait ‘til the dust settles. She’ll come home with the prize in hand, the contract. She’s a highly educated Realtor, she STUDIES the Austin market and has sold homes here for many years. In the past two years, she has helped us sell two homes at top dollar and buy one at the best price. She also helped us complete a 1031 Exchange. I loved to watch her work. Each move she made was calculated to make sure there were no surprises. Donna Ciccarelli. (CHICK-A-RELL-EEE!) Great name; awesome Realtor!

Bob and Deborah Mathison

Donna was the first realtor we ever used and at that time, we thought this type of pampering , expertise, and skills were standard. But after moving to Dallas and working with other realtors, we realized how wrong we were! It was pure luck that while in Austin, we had stumbled on one of the most amazing realtors, ever. Simply put, we use Donna as the benchmark for great service. She is awesome!

Ghazi Saleem and Xin Li

When I first came to Cedar Park to begin construction on the new Cedar Park Regional Hospital I received many requests from realtors to allow them to assist my family in our move. It was one of the Board Members of the Cedar Park Chamber of Commerce who highly recommended Donna Ciccarelli. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, intuitive, honest in her approach to myself and my family. She anticipated our needs before we had even spoken them, and not only found us the perfect property, but I trusted Donna also to relocate my staff to Cedar Park from all areas of the United States. My family trusts her implicitly. Later she worked with our relocation company in selling our home as we transitioned to Baylor All Saints Medical Hospital in Fort Worth. What can I say? She's now family.

Dr. David Klein

I have had the privilege of working with Donna for several years as one of her Lenders. She is extremely savvy about the Real Estate market in Central, Texas and works super hard for her clients. She is absolutely Top Notch!!

Tom Brown

I met Donna over the internet when I inquired about a listing in Texas. My husband and I were looking to move from California to a rural area north of Austin to be near our children. I let Donna know what we would be looking for and she had many listings for me to preview in just a week span when I arrived in Texas. Donna had already been in communication with me on specifics and needless to say, Donna not only showed me the perfect house and neighborhood but she became a friend in the process. Donna’s knowledge, professionalism, and expertise of the area put my mind at ease in knowing I chose the right agent and a new friend was born in the process! What a bonus!!

Ron and Anna Allred

I highly recommend Donna Ciccarelli for all your real estate needs. She is highly skilled, professional, expedient, and trustworthy. My experience working with her on the sale of my real estate was 5 Star! Thank you, Donna!

Efren Bermudez Jr.

Donna worked with my husband and me to find our first home over the Summer and we are SO grateful that we had her on our team! Her knowledge got us started on the right foot even though we were both complete novices. Donna was incredibly patient and explained all the parts of the process to us until we understood. We visited many homes and made an offer on a few, and in this hot market Donna knew how to make our offers more appealing to Sellers. We went under contract with one house, but unfortunately, there were unexpected foundation issues that became apparent just before closing when there were none before. Donna was incredibly helpful and loyal to us as her clients and helped us through an unbelievably complicated situation. She quickly showed us other housing options, and we were able to close quickly on the house we now call Home. We owe her so much for seeing us through this process and will definitely be calling her the next time we’re looking to move houses!

Danny and Shaylyn Bravens

I found Donna to be tireless in her quest to get us the home we wanted. If not for her expertise in her field, we would not be currently living in this amazing house in Georgetown. She handled the seller and the seller’s realtor with amazing ease, never losing her cool, and always being very professional. We just can’t say enough to really do her justice. She did all the work, and took all the heat, and helped us keep our cool. She always had a backup plan, and never gave up, she was tireless. I admire her both as a person and a realtor. With Donna Ciccarelli on your team, you can’t go wrong. I also forgot to include that we were living in Missouri during this entire process, and she even gave us free advice on the pending sale of our home in Missouri.

Robert and "Butch" Wichern

We met Donna and later her partner Richard when we decided to sell our ranch and Home Away properties in Spicewood. They pulled out all stops to create the best marketing promotion to get us top dollar for our properties, first selling our Creekside property, and then the main Ranch – well over $2M with one cash sale. They researched history, had a movie type production done along with professional photos to effectively communicate the value of our long loved property. Although bittersweet, we are glad for the sale and are so appreciative of their hard work, tenacity, and strong negotiation skills to bring multiple offers to the table resulting in full price sale.
