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.

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!

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.

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.
