Absolutely stellar

When working with Donna, the situations started off as dire. Then when working together to find a solution, Donna stepped in when I was unsure about how to proceed. She did all the work and got me out of a dire situation into a condo that I absolutely love. If it wasn't for her and her skills, I would most likely still be in my dire situation. I have nothing but good words for Donna, and I will recommend her to any person that is looking for a realtor. Absolutely stellar person in both character and ethics. Cannot say enough good about Donna.

Donna is the best around

Donna is the best around. She is so nice and kind. Very knowledgeable about buying or selling a home! She knows the quad cities area well! Donna always got back to US ASAP. I suggest using her to buy a home especially if it’s your first like ours was. Donna you're the best. Keep it up. Donna makes the experience feel as smooth as can be expected! We made a friend in this process. She will always shoot you straight and not just tell you what ya wanna hear. If you want a good experience while buying or selling a home, then I would call Donna Arnold. God brought her into our life for a reason. We will be forever grateful 😊😉

Our experience with Donna has only been exceptional

We met Donna at a perfect time when we just started our home purchase process. We were living in Waterloo at the time and wanted to purchase a house in Quad Cities area. We could go to the QC only during weekends (it's a 2.5 hr drive from Waterloo) to find out where we wanted to build our dream home. She is a thorough professional who understood our interests, situation and valued our time; so she got our appointments scheduled with different builders throughout the day. We were able to finalize a lot of decisions over a very few trips. She even made time for us to help us pick the flooring. She would even remember even the tiniest details that we wanted in our custom home even though she has a number of clients. She always responded to our texts or calls or emails ASAP. She is very knowledgeable and always provides us with good information. Donna gave us great recommendations/ suggestions for a number of things throughout the process like for landscaping, flooring, lenders, cabinets, paint colors, etc. All her recommendations did quality work at a great price for us and we loved them! Our experience with Donna has only been exceptional to work with and we would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her if you are looking for a realtor. We've made a good friend through this process and we hope to continue our friendship :)

Patient and knowledgable

I cannot recommend Donna and her associate Laurie enough! They were indispensable in my first home buying process. Patient and knowledgeable in every aspect; from helping me to understand the process, to house hunting, and of course the dreaded closing. Donna Arnold Homes made my experience a delight. I could not be happier with their responsive service and personal touch.

— Ruth Jessee

Highly recommend

Donna was very helpful in the selling of our home. She was professional, knowledgeable, and responded quickly with all our questions. She notified us when things should be done after we accepted an offer and through the closing process. We highly recommend Donna whether you are buying or selling your home.

— Colleen Fier

Third time using Donna to buy a home

Working with Donna is a pleasure. Just finished buying our 3rd home with her. She really gets me. Understands what I want, and she is super responsive to all my questions and requests. She helped us through every step of the process, from finding the right home to closing the deal. If you are looking for a realtor who has the experience and knowledge to get you into the home you've always wanted, look no further!

— Alana Latchaw

Great connections and experience

Donna has connections and experience in the real estate business that allowed our home to sell very quickly. What I was also very impressed by was her listening to our suggestions and needs along the way while being professional and having the answers to all of our questions in a very timely manner. Donna knows the market and I would highly recommend buying/selling with donna arnold.

— Joel Donahue

They go the extra mile

I moved to the Quad Cities from out of state. Both Donna and Laurie were incredible to work with. They listened to what I was looking for, and helped me to understand the market in this area. I ended up finding a wonderful home. They were available anytime I reached out, and were very supportive throughout the process. They will go the extra mile to make sure you have what you need and are taken care of.

— Daniel Simmons

Helped me find exactly what I was looking for.

I worked with Laurie as a first time home buyer and I highly recommend her! She helped me with every step in the process, never rushed me or pressured me into anything, and helped me find exactly what I was looking for.

— Jacey Charnoski

Donna was incredible!

Donna was incredible! She was on top of everything right away! A real go-getter. I got lowball estimates for my home from every other agent I contacted and Donna was realistic, hard working, with great connections for everything that needed to be done, and it was such a pleasure to work with her at every step! Since I had already moved out of state, I was worried what a hassle it would be to sell my home, but Donna and her team made it painless and enjoyable! I highly HIGHLY recommend Donna Arnold and her team if you are looking for not just a good realtor, but a fantastic agent!

— Philip & Anne Spradley

I highly recommend Donna as a buyers/listing agent to anyone that may be selling or buying in the near future.

I highly recommend Donna as a buyers/listing agent to anyone that may be selling or buying in the near future. I have worked in the lending industry with Wells Fargo for many years and have worked with over 200 including the buyers/listing side. After working with Donna, she was hands down the best agent I have done business with. I used her for the purchase of my new property and I would highly encourage anyone in the QCA – Iowa – Illinois, to reach out to Donna if you have any real estate questions. Lastly, if you are a lender looking for an organized, responsible, and highly motivated agent, you can trust sending your customers to her. She will take great care of them from start to finish!

When faced with trying to sell our home, we were very selective in deciding upon a realtor to get the job done, after interviewing other realtors from various companies, we are so glad we chose Donna Arnold to be our realtor. Her professional attitude, her concern for doing Everything Necessary to get the property sold while keeping us informed of all issues as well as the progress for a sale were MORE THAN OUTSTANDING. In this difficult market, we felt it was most important to pick the best representative; Donna Arnold and Heather Kaekert made a POWER TEAM that was MOST CERTAINLY a successful strategy with a result being A SOLD in a short time! Warm Regards…and a BIG THANK YOU!

— Les & Norma Finkel

She helped every step of the way making sure we knew exactly what to ask for.

This was our first home purchase and navigating these waters without an experienced realtor is an absolute no no. We met Donna at an open house and she quickly told us we should meet her at some other properties. The first one she showed we put an offer on. She helped every step of the way making sure we knew exactly what to ask for. She helped us stay in contact with both the builder and developer and made sure everyone was on the same page. I cannot tell you how important it is to have good communication with everyone. She was very nice and polite but the gloves came off when we needed her to fight for us when the closing got close. She showed us what to look for in the final walkthrough and seemed more concerned about us being happy in our new home then receiving her commission check. We are very hard to impress and she went above and beyond all expectations we had. I would have no problem recommending her to family and friends. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and knows the ins and outs of the real estate game. Do yourself a favor and call Donna for your next home.

Top notch professional who made the buying process extremely easy

This is the first time I have worked with Donna – top notch professional who made the buying process extremely easy. Overall an excellent experience, I will be working with her again. She made the process very smooth and took care of the scheduling/inspections with no time required from me. I have purchased/rented homes throughout the US over the last 25 years and Donna has been the most knowledgeable, customer oriented, and diligent agent that I have worked with – it is no accident why she is the best in the Quad Cities.

— William O'Brien

Donna’s follow through, follow up, and procedures were Perfect!

I spent my career in marketing related fields, so when I saw Donna’s resume and had our first communication the decision to sign her to sell our home came easy. Donna’s follow through; follow up and procedures were = Perfect! We did what she asked and she did as well! Having any real estate in the QC market is perfect for worldwide exposure with John Deere, Kone and the Rock Island Arsenal as attractive venues for people relocating to the Quad City metro plex. (their buyer found the listing online, she was in Korea). We agreed to the listing price and within two weeks had an acceptable offer that was solid! She walks the walk & talks the talk. We without any regret highly recommend to have Donna as your agent

— Gordon & Susan Johnson

Donna knows how to get things done!

Donna has been patiently working with us for 6 years to help us realize our dream of owning a home! She is very professional and has extensive knowledge of local neighborhoods, banks, and other contractors needed to close on a home. Donna knows how to get things done!

I’ve used Donna for the past 4 years now on multiple deals.

I’ve used Donna for the past 4 years now on multiple deals. She not only knows here stuff, but she uses the resources available to her to get details on questions I need answered and does so very quickly. I plan on doing many more deals in the future and you can be assured that Donna will be the first person I call.

— Joshua Andrews

She’s not just a great realtor, but an honest person

Donna helped me find my very 1st my house in 2010, and I just sold it with her last week. The photos she used made my house look so awesome I wanted to stay! I had an accepted offer in just 7 days, the house just closed and I was more than happy with my proceeds! I would recommend Donna Arnold to anyone who wants to get their home sold fast! She’s not just a great realtor, but an honest person who cared as much about getting my home sold as I did!

— Jessica Triphahn

Donna is very professional, and does a terrific job!

She is very professional and friendly

Donna is very thorough and if she doesn’t know it she will find out. She is very professional and friendly and I will highly recommend her to others. A+++.

She guided us and we felt grateful that she was our first relator

We met Donna by chance when we purchased our first home in 2009. She happened to be the one that responded when we inquired about a house. Donna took her time and showed us many different houses, until we found the perfect one. She guided us and we felt grateful that she was our first relator. She pointed out flaws in certain houses that we looked at that we did not notice, as well as pluses in other houses that we had not though of. We a currently looking for our 2nd home. We are the picky sort, so we have looked at many over the last year. Donna has always been patient with us, and has never shown frustration over the process. In fact she encourages us to make a solid decision. She will also be the one to sell our house. We highly recommend her and have sent people her direction.

— Sean & Tagen Tipton

Donna was a pleasure to work with

Donna was a pleasure to work with. She was so helpful throughout the entire process. I trusted all her suggestions and the research she did on the market – and it worked! My house sold for a full price offer in just 4 days in the middle of early March snowstorms!

— Amy Pousson

Donna has been absolutely amazing

Donna Arnold went above and beyond

Highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling a home

Donna, Linda and I wanted to thank you for your excellent and professional service selling our home on Rodeo Road. Your listing method, prompt feedback and people skills made is very easy for us to trust you during the complete process. We will highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling a home.

— David & Linda Petersen

She is someone I trust in all aspects of the selling/home buying process

I have worked with Donna Arnold twice in selling and purchasing a home. Each experience was a positive one. She is someone I trust in all aspects of the selling/home buying process. She always had an answer for any question I may have had and is reliable and punctual in the process. Donna has always guided me and has done what is in my best interest. I highly recommend her as an agent if your selling or buying a home.

— Jenny Post

Donna was a truly a remarkable Selling Agent

Donna was a truly a remarkable Selling Agent. She came highly recommended from our existing Buying Agent with Keller Williams (and from her KW Agency) and she didn’t disappoint! We’d had the house listed with another Agency/Realtor for more than 3 months, and we just weren’t getting the attention or results that we were hoping for. We had already purchased a home in another State, and we truly didn’t want to carry two mortgages. Donna truly enabled us to put our best foot forward – her vast knowledge of the market, her meticulous attention to detail, and her professional guidance and expertise were evident from the first meeting we had with her. She helped us price and display the house appropriately, and within less than two months, we had received and accepted an offer in a recessed, buyer-focused market. We are very grateful to her for her leading and assistance, and we would recommend her to anyone and everyone looking to list with the perfect Selling Agent!

— David & Stephanie Freeland

Donna had all the connecting people we needed

My family and I would like to thank Donna for everything she suggested and has done to sell Mom and Dad’s house. We grew up in this house which Mom and Dad owned for over fifty years. Dad passed away 17 years ago and we tried to keep Mom in the house where she wanted to stay. Mom had to be moved to a nursing home and we had to sell the house to pay for everything she needs now. Time was very crucial and I could not have done this by myself. Donna had all the connecting people we needed and she sold the house in 3 months after we spent 9 months of cleaning out and fixing up everything to help sell the house. It has been great working with Donna she has been on top of the scheduling and timing of everything that had to be done. I would highly recommend Donna to anybody that is buying or selling their house. Thank you so much,

— Debbie Johnston and family

Donna performed beyond even my expectations

I have been a Realtor in the St. Louis area for 23 years and have very high expectations for myself as well as for other Realtors I work with. My wife’s family moved her elderly parents from Davenport to our area so we could care for them, and I assisted in selling their home of 65 years. The first agent we used was someone my in-laws knew from their church. He was a friendly guy, and had been in the business nearly as long as I had, but I quickly found that he was not willing to put out a lot of effort to sell their home. After nearly 4 frustrating months with no offers, I convinced my in-laws to move on to someone else. I researched and found Donna Arnold, and within 5 minutes of conversation with her, I was convinced she was a good choice. Actually, I was mistaken, she was a FANTASTIC CHOICE! Donna performed beyond even my expectations with her recommendations to make improvements, holding multiple open houses, recommending very good contractors when needed, etc., and we actually had three contract offers within a very short time. Donna is clearly a “Cream of the Crop” Realtor in every way I can think of, and I have told her as much many times. I’m proud to share in the same business with her (which I often cannot say about other Realtors) and I recommend Donna very, very highly.

— Roger Schneider

I could not be more pleased with Donna Arnold’s service, dedication, and personal attention

I could not be more pleased with Donna Arnold’s service, dedication, and personal attention – she is truly a high-caliber professional! Donna’s knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills were key in ensuring that I received the best offer for my house. Donna was with me the entire step of the way of the process and went the extra mile in getting the house sold. I highly recommend her to others and I will definitely come back to her for any of my real estate needs.

— Maureen Kohn

Everyone in the office was incredible

Everyone in the office was incredible. We called needing a house like yesterday and Lori had us looking at houses within a couple hrs. When we found the house we liked she got us a showing within hours and an accepted offer 2 hours later. We could not have asked for a better experience, totally exceeded our expectations.
