Donna Goode



As a native Texan growing up in Dallas, Donna’s first trip to Central Texas was to see the State Capitol, Aquarena Springs, and The Alamo. Even as a kid, she knew there was something special about the area. On New Year’s Eve 2003, Donna finally became a permanent resident of Austin, joining her two daughters.

After 25+ years in high tech sales, education, and service, Donna became a licensed real estate agent in May 2006. She likes the challenge and ever-changing world of technology, but found her true passion helping her clients buy and sell real estate in Austin. She earned her Sellers Representative Specialist designation in 2014. Working with buyers and sellers in every season of their lives from fist-time buyers to down-sizing clients, her experience includes sales of single-family homes, multi-family investments with a focus on duplexes, assisting investor with buying, selling, and leasing investment properties, community close-out sales for condo development, and family estates . Donna provides professional services tailored to each client. Her approach to providing superior service ensures a positive experience with her goal of creating clients for life.

Donna enjoys the South Austin lifestyle with her husband Ed – they will celebrate their first wedding anniversary in May. You may find them at a live music venue, Zilker Park with their sweet dog, Turbo, or taking in all of the great food, festivals, and fun with family and friends.

Donna has always been great to us! She is caring, is understanding, thinks outside the box (especially for our unique situation coming from Mexico), is always available, and she goes above and beyond! We have used Donna 3 times now: twice to buy a home and once to sell. There is no one better. She always listens and gives excellent advice and NEVER trying to scam like other Realtors that I have encountered. She has also been willing to shave her fee for the price we need. She is the best, hands down! We love our Donna, and so do our kids!

Donna Goode is an amazing agent. I worked with her for a number of years and she never disappointed! I would highly recommend Donna for anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the Austin area.

Donna Goode was wonderful to work with. She has experience, and it shows. Donna was very accommodating with scheduling and has great advice. I hope to be at my house for a long time, but I would definitely not waste my time with anyone else if I purchase again.

I was extremely pleased with our experience with Donna Goode. She did a fantastic job of communicating pertinent information which made a smooth, stress-free process. I really appreciated her diligence in studying the market and helping us price our home correctly. We had four offers over asking price within the 1st weekend! I would highly recommend Donna to anyone trying to sell their home.

This is the third occasion that we've utilized Donna's services, which should tell you something. We are very grateful for Donna's willingness to help us purchase and sell our homes. She is very professional and attentive to detail. We really like her and would not hesitate to recommend her to friends. If we are ever in the Austin area, we will not hesitate to contact Donna again.

We couldn't be any happier with Donna. We really enjoyed working with her when we purchased our house two years ago. Now we are selling both of our homes in Buda and Leander. Donna has always made herself available to us at all times. We really feel that she puts our needs first and that she works hard to get us top dollar on our sales as well as paying a fair price for our last purchase; which is a huge relief. She has become more than a real estate agent to us; she is a friend. We are now living in Montana and every time we need something Donna has made it happen, if we are ever in Texas again, we will not hesitate to contact Donna for our real estate needs.

Donna Goode was fantastic to work with in selling and buying our new home. It makes a HUGE difference to work with someone who is experienced, knowledgable, prepared, organized, and professional. The difference between Donna and the realtors our buyer/sellers were working with was extreme, and it was so helpful to make this stressful transition seamless. I brag to my friends how easy this experience was because it truly was a pleasure! I will be sure and recommend Donna to all my friends!

Donna assisted with our lease two years ago, and again while representing us during our new house build. Give Donna Goode a call if you're making a move in Austin.

This is my third time having the pleasure of working with Donna Goode. She always provides excellent recommendations for everything from home inspectors, pest control, HVAC service to cleaning companies. She always makes herself available when I need her, and even filled in for me when I couldn't be at appointments during work hours. I am so grateful that she recommended showing me my (now) condo since it was completely off my radar and originally out of my price range. Thanks to her knowledge and expertise on the Austin area and market she was able to help me successfully close the deal. Thanks again Donna!

First off I would like to say that we had a very bad experience in the past with our first realtor when we purchased our first home. Our old realtor was very unprofessional and didn't seem to care about our needs. So from our past experience, we were very cautious and wary. So to our delight, Donna put us at ease with all of our issues right from the start. Donna was very friendly and informative. Every question and concern that we had going into our first sale were answered in a timely manner and she was very straight forward. We could tell that she truly cared about us as people and not just as her clients. I will absolutely recommend Donna to all friends and family when it comes to their realty needs. We look forward to having her be with us when we get back in the market to buy our next home.

This review is for Donna Goode of Realty Austin. Let me begin with a little context: I am a first-time home buyer and come from a family of very successful and demanding realtors now in retirement from a long career with Long & Foster in Washington, D.C. Naturally, my parents wanted to be involved in the transaction (a stressful scenario for all parties), but we needed a Texas-licensed realtor. After weeks of diligent brokerage research, we landed on Realty Austin for its great reputation and perceived 'boutique' feel while still maintaining high sales velocity on par with national brokerages. We chose Donna due to her breadth of experience in the Austin market (she can tell you what parts of town used to be dirt roads, where to find the best tacos) and her personable, patient demeanor. A good realtor doesn't have to interview you to deduce what style of home and features are most important relative to your socioeconomic status and personality. After one showing, Donna was dialed in to what I was looking for with laser precision and protecting us from flood zones, high property tax areas, etc., all the while making herself available at a moment's notice and juggling extended correspondence with my family. Even after we moved in Donna reached out to us to provide referrals for home maintenance, checking on warranty status, etc. I can't recommend her highly enough. If you're in the market to list or buy in Austin, look no further. You will not be disappointed.

Donna was a great Realtor to myself and girlfriend. We are first time home buyers and she held our hand thru the whole process, making sure we knew everything we had to know from how to get started off looking for a home to how financials work to contacting us after the house purchase to make sure everything was going as expected. Donna's whole team was great. When we first sat down with Donna, she had us write our wish list of what we wanted in a house on a piece of paper and she tried her best to make that happen, and did!! Donna was very knowledgeable in the market, the comps in the neighborhoods and schools in the areas. We must have looked at 10-15 houses together, put in some offers that fell thru but thru it all she was very patient, considerate, and most of all encouraging because we all know how stressful it could be to buy a first home. I would and will recommend Donna to anyone I know of looking to buy a home.

Donna is an amazing agent! I have been an agent in Washington FC for 20+ years, so, when our son decided to buy his first home in Austin, I decided to find the perfect agent for him - and, I did!!!

In one weekend, Donna gave us a complete overview of the market and helped us identify neighborhoods of interest. She was always available after that to help our son, Zach. He describes her as "the most awesome real estate agent ever." From finding the perfect home, presenting the offer, negotiating and settlement, Donna was on top of it all! Since we do not live in Austin, she worked hard to keep us in the loop every step of the way.

She referred us to the best lender and a good settlement company, both of which brought us to closing without incident.

From someone who knows from experience this business, inside and out, we Regard Donna as the best among agents!!! We are grateful for her experience, enthusiasm, and kindness.

Realty Austin is lucky to have her on your team, and so are we!!!

Donna provided A+ service for my husband and I in our home search. We are first-time homebuyers and she was very knowledgeable and she was more than happy to assist us in every step of the way! We had a very unique situation being overseas foreign national buyers and she really went the extra mile to pull strings and she never gave up on us! She also offered ideas and great guidance in the offer and loan process. Now we are living in our new home and we honestly believe that if we didn’t have Donna by our side that this would not be possible. We are so thankful for her.

Donna was spectacular(x2). I would definitely recommend her / use her again.

We listed our condo with Donna to sell. Donna provided exemplary professional service, going beyond my expectations to get this property in order to sell. She did so in a reasonable time frame, and when it hit the market, we signed an earnest money contract in short order, and the sale was closed in late November. I feel we were very fortunate to have Donna represent us in this transaction. She made it painless and was available anytime we needed anything. I would definitely use Donna again!

I recently sold my condo and Donna Goode was amazing to work with. She truly went above and beyond and I highly recommend her! Thank you so much for everything Donna!

It was wonderful having Donna as our Realtor. She was simply the best! She knew exactly what we were looking for and always greeted us with a smile and positive attitude. As first time home owners, we had lots of questions regarding the whole process. She made sure to answer our phone calls, no matter what time or day, and without hesitation, would explain what everything meant. When it came down to all the paper work with the closing, Donna took her time going through every detail because she knew this was all new to us and so important. It was an absolute pleasure working beside her throughout the whole house searching process! I could not have asked for a better realtor and I would recommend her 100 more times!

Thank you so much Realty Austin for sending us an extraordinary Realtor, who helped us find our dream home!

My husband and I just bought our first home with the help of Realty Austin's Donna Goode and we couldn't be happier. Donna always made herself available to answer questions and to view homes. It only took 2 days of looking at houses to find our dream home. As I said, this is our first home, and Donna was so helpful when it came to answer first time home buyer questions. She also accompanied us during the inspection and closing. I cannot recommend a better realtor. Thanks Donna!

Donna is a real estate professional whom I have enjoyed working with over the past 3 years. She has a connection with her clients because she not only provides her real estate expertise, she has the intuition for finding exactly what her client is looking for exceeding their expectation. She is the kindest real estate agent I have had the pleasure of working with.

My wife and I were buying our first home and had already been through two agents who did not listen to our needs. We were first-time home buyers with a budget and we had a few special requests. One, was that we needed a turn-key home because we didn't have extra money for renovations. Two, we needed subdivisions whose HOAs would allow for us to also have a business out of the home. Unlike other agents, Donna listened to our needs and found us homes within our budget, but also in great neighborhoods that would support our business ventures. She always listened to us and cared. She also has the connections to wonderful people, such as our mortgage company, that made the process so much easier and secure.

Donna even made sure to check up on us several months later to make sure we were happy with the purchase. If you want a truly genuine individual who cares more about your needs than her commission, Donna is the right one for you.

Donna and Tracie have been helping my boyfriend and I look for our new place. They have been incredibly helpful, patient, personable, flexible, and efficient. They are the first to notify us when a new property that meets our criteria becomes available. I couldn't imagine working with anyone else. I recommend everyone I know to the "Goode Girls".

Donna is hands down the BEST realtor I have dealt with. I started out looking for someone to help find a house. Ended up find a someone very knowledgable in her field and willing to ABOVE AND BEYOND the call of duty. The world needs not only more relators like Donna, but more people like her as well.

I'm writing this to inform you how pleased I am with Donna Goode's performance as our real estate agent for my Mom's home located in Austin, TX.

My Mom passed away this past February in Austin. I live north of Fort Worth, TX and my brother lives in Keane, NH. Not knowing any real estate agents in the Austin area, I consulted with a local agent, who researched and then referred me to Donna. I couldn't be more pleased with both of them. Donna helped my brother and I resolve many issues that I feel are above and beyond her responsibility as our real estate agent. My mom's home was in dire need of clean-up and minor renovation. Donna researched and acquired several different contractors, arranged a meeting with myself and those contractors, on site, all occurring in the same day, and then personally ensured that all work had been done satisfactorily without me being there the following week. Additionally, the interior of the house had to be completely painted, portions of the exterior had to be repaired and painted and carpet had to be replaced. She selected all of the paint and carpet colors, compiled a punch list of items for the contractors to complete before I paid them, and had the home ready for presentation in less than 10 days; all without me having to travel from Fort Worth to Austin. The house had two competing offers the first day on the market and I accepted a final offer the second day.

I've had some experience with real estate agents in the past, but I have never dealt one that works harder than Donna.

My sincerest appreciation to her and your Team!
