November 2016

Richard Fowler by far exceeded my expectations as my realtor. This was my first time buying a home and he was so patient and helpful with me during this process. He was sure to explain any questions or concerns I had and also walked me through the whole process seamlessly to make sure that in the future if I wanted to resell my property there would be no issues. Richard did all he could to look out for me and my best interests especially since it was my first time buying a home and had no clue as to what I was doing. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all he did for me and highly recommend using him as your realtor if you are looking for one. Thank you so much, Richard (and Donna!) for all you guys did for me!

Laura C., Facebook Review

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.

Richard Fowler was very accommodating to our needs while also being refreshingly realistic and forthright when necessary. We had a very enjoyable, and pleasantly quick, home buying experience.

At the time of our search, my husband and I were living on a month-to-month lease and were concerned that we would rack up significant costs while finding a house. However, Richard's attentiveness and ability to produce results kept those costs low.

Three days before closing, we ran into an issue with our loan. Richard remained our champion and ensured that our lender was able to deliver a reasonable solution quickly so that we could have the home of our dreams. Even months after we moved into our new home, Richard called to check in and help assist with any problems.

Not everyone finds the realtor of their dreams! We couldn't be happier with Richard's outstanding service.

Richard is one of the finest individuals I've had the pleasure of knowing. His work on our behalf was impeccable. He skillfully guided us through the process. We were wise enough to take his recommendations and they paid huge dividends. The house was sold in a little over a week on the market for more than list price. Richard demonstrated real concern about us. He went out of his way to ensure that we understood what was happening and that our property was secure. He made sure we got the best deal possible and was very skillful in obtaining the best terms on our behalf. We highly recommend Richard to prospective Buyers or Sellers of Real Estate.

John & Demaris H.

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

We have been in our new house in Cedar Park, TX four months now and we absolutely love the house and the community. We wanted to give a shout out to our wonderful Real Estate Agent, Richard Fowler. Richard made us feel like we were his only clients at all times and went above and beyond, not only in setting up multiple viewings on potential homes but also helping us with all the closing arrangements and details that went into our monumental move from Minnesota to Texas. Richard was exceptional at making sure we understood all the details regarding the paperwork/loan and was always available when we had any questions. Even after closing, Richard kept in touch with us to make sure we had everything covered and everything was running smoothly for us. Richard's attentiveness and attention to detail made this a painless and memorable move for our whole family and we owe him a huge amount of gratitude in guiding our family on to our next journey of experiencing life in Texas. Thank You!

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

Richard exceeded our expectations and personalized our home buying experience, helping us find our perfect home. He really" got" what we were looking for and worked to show us houses that fit our needs. He went above the call of duty on many occasions. We were moving in from out of town, so he helped us with getting inspections and quotes and meeting these companies at the house under contract, recommended many good service companies to us to choose from and really stayed on top of our deadlines. He helped us with negotiations in a very professional manner and made the difference in us getting our home in a "hot' market with multiple contracts received in the first day of showing. If you want to buy a home in Austin, I would highly recommend Richard! You will get nothing but excellent service, a caring individual, a high integrity person, a professional experience and a home, not just a house.

Paul & Deborah P.

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

Richard Fowler really helped me with my first home buying experience. He was able to attend all of my walkthroughs and design gallery meetings not only to help make sure I was getting what I was paying for but also for suggestions. I am very thankful and appreciative of the help he provided. Would recommend to anyone!

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.

Richard Fowler is a very professional, diligent and he cares about the seller and the buyer. There were a few problems during the sale and Richard was right on top of them to straighten them out, for a very smooth sale to benefit all. We can not thank him enough for selling our house and if we ever move back to Austin, Texas we will be calling him for our new home.

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.
