First Time Sellers
Donna recently worked with us to help sell our condo in Ossining. We were “first time sellers” so we weren’t really sure of what to expect. Donna was amazing! She spent time educating us about the local real estate/condo market and helped us price and stage our home to attract as many potential buyers as possible. Thanks to her diligence and persistence, we sold our condo faster than we expected. Donna is professional, knowledgeable – a highly competent realtor. She is very easy to work with, warm and personable. We’ve recommended Donna to many friends and will absolutely work with her again next time around!!

My wife and I would like to express how pleased we were with our real estate agent Donna Nikic. She exceeded our expectations every step of the way from the initial showing to closing. Her real estate knowledge far surpassed the knowledge of other agents we had worked with locally and outside of Westchester County. She was able to take all of the items we had on our list and provide us with multiple options. Having not been familiar with the area, Donna not only showed us the homes listed but gave us a feel for the area in which we would be living. She provided us with a wealth of knowledge that aided us in making an educated decision. Donna truly went above and beyond to help us select the perfect home in the perfect area. She made us feel as though we were her only clients. No question went unanswered and no request went unfulfilled. It is clear that Donna understands excellent client service and is exceptional at it. I would never consider purchasing or selling with any other agent. Donna is an AAA rated real estate agent and anyone working with her discovers this within the first few minutes of meeting her.

First Time Home Sellers
"Donna M. Nikic went above and beyond to assist us with every aspect of our home sale. She worked with us tirelessly. As first time home sellers, she provided outstanding advice regarding how to spend our time and energy.
She was easy to work with and listened to us. Having Donna as our broker was one of the best decisions we have ever made and is highly recommended by us.
Her experience as a Croton resident enabled her to define the market for our unique home. We had multiple offers above asking price on open house day.
Thank you so much for taking us through our home selling journey.

I highly recommend Donna. I don't generally write reviews, but I was eager to do so for her. She will help you get the right house and make the process as smooth and pleasant as it can be. Working with Donna was such a positive experience -- she is responsive, knowledgeable and a real advocate for her buyer. We have known Donna for over two years (she was very patient with us as we looked for our home!). She helped us get to know the area initially and helped make us comfortable that the move from the city to the suburbs would be the right one for us. In the buying process, she was a strong advocate for us, giving us guidance while always respecting that the decision was our own. She put together detailed comps and analysis to help us understand how to get to the right price. Once we were in contract, she helped out with appointments at the house since we weren't nearby, and she recommended several good contractors, inspectors and other service providers, none of which we would have known as we are new to the area. She was with us at the closing table, providing helpful advice to the end. Donna is unique especially for her deep knowledge about homes and attendant systems, which was particularly useful for us as first-time house buyers. Her professionalism is unmatched, and she is also personable and great to work with during what can be a very stressful process.

Our family had a long, interesting and ultimately successful history with Donna when we engaged her to sell our family home of 51 years. As a broker, Donna was committed, professional and did whatever it took to move the deal forward. She utilized her vast Croton-on-Hudson real estate knowledge, land development acumen and long-standing positive town relationships to bring the deal to a close.
We had a protracted house and land sale that had twists, turns, complications and unforeseeable circumstances too numerous to mention. Through it all Donna had the resolve, temperament and clarity of focus to step back and think of another way to make the deal work.
We would highly recommend her as the A+ team leader for your house sale if you need a superstar.

Seller and Buyer Transaction
I have bought and sold a number of homes of the years. When I decided to make one more move, I dreaded a repeat of my prior experiences with real estate agents. I decided to work with a new person -- someone I'd met at an open house -- it made all the difference. Donna Nikic is by far the most informed, supportive, reliable, and astute real estate professional I have ever encountered. She applied her skill and expertise on my family's behalf allowing us to settle into a new "forever home" feeling satisfied and optimistic. Ms. Nikic has my highest recommendation and my long lasting gratitude for her generous support.

Donna is the best realtor around. Donna's savvy guidance were instrumental in our home purchase. She has terrific insight into the market, prowls for properties that are a good fit, and will help you buy or sell with ease. She is honest and careful and works very hard to keep the process together. Donna knows the nuances of home inspections, financing, home improvement, tax assessments, and has a keen eye for accurately valuing properties.

First Time Home Buyer
This was my first try at buying a home. I was clueless about the entire process. Donna was the first agent I spoke to. I needed to move fast and close with in two months. Donna moved super-fast for me and I was immediately impressed by her quick responses via text and email. Donna gave me a few options, one that I would have never have considered ... it turned out to be a great deal in an awesome location and beautiful view of the Hudson. Donna negotiated the price way down for me and we got into contract very quickly. At walk through, Donna was super-strict with the seller who didn't do what he was supposed to do, and this resulted in extra cash for me at the closing table. After closing, Donna helped me find a local contractor who could quickly do some renovations at a great price. I'm super-happy with the results and highly recommend Donna!

47 Sunset Drive
We recently sold and closed on our home at 47 Sunset Drive, in Croton-on-Hudson, and just wanted to pass on our appreciation to a member of your Chappaqua team -- Donna Nikic.
Our relationship with Donna goes back over 2 years - as we started the process to sell our home as we renovated our new home. Donna was instrumental about the process, about the prep, getting all of our ducks-in-a-row and most importantly "the timing" of a spring 2016 sale.
This process, from discussion-to-close, went perfectly! -- our home was priced correctly, marketed and advertised well, had a great "open house" and a ton of showings and interest...
...and we wanted you to know that Donna, her team and the team at the Chappaqua office were all a pleasure to work with.
Please pass on our appreciation to Donna and her team.
