Client Testimonials

Donna Mikesh worked hard not only to find our home but to sell it when my husband’s career required us to relocate. She always responded to our questions quickly and with much patience. We would definitely recommend Donna to others.

Angela Edwards

Donna Mikesh, was amazing. She was always available either by phone or email if I had any questions. She never hurried us out of a house but let us take our time looking. I think I took twice as long as most unless my daughters allergies disagreed first. She was never pushy. I had very specific guidelines in which I had to follow for my loan and Donna was willing to work with me on that no matter the time frame. Based on my personal experience looking for a house with Donna I would have to say I highly recommend her. She will work with you, and wants the best for you.

Satisfied Buyer, Johnson City, TN

Donna was chosen after a major fail from a competitor company… She never made us uncomfortable and went the extra mile and was available at any time during the sale and beyond…

Ursula Trudell

Donna Mikesh was a highly professional but at the same time very personal and warm. She exceeded our expectations in length of time the house sold and ease of the negotiations and closing. I would highly recommend her as a Realtor.

Tom & Kathy Herington

Donna was the ultimate professional. The buyer agent was demanding, and Donna handled the requests for property corrections in an effective manner, reducing the demands and financial impact on us as remote sellers. The buyer’s title company was extremely inefficient and error prone, and she helped to navigate their issues and minimize the impact on me. Without her intervention during the closing process, I most likely would have walked away from the deal. Donna is the agent you would always want to have in your corner!

Satisified seller, Florida

We have alot of respect for Donna. In addition to her professionalism in every aspect  of purchasing a house, we found her honesty and her unique ability to work with (becoming a new friend) a special bonus.

Eddie and Jackie Hardin

I wanted an ethical and responsible realtor, who would put my needs first but who would ensure that
everything was above board and all parties were fairly treated.

Donna Mikesh was exactly that type of realtor. She was extremely responsible, accessible and knew her job
well. When I was ready to throw in the towel on a prospective buyer, she asked me my bottom line and she
was able to write up a counter offer that was acceptable to both me and the buyer. Based on her experience
of loans and review of the buyer’s counteroffers, she was able to judge what the buyer’s top amount was.
She also wrote the contract so that timelines were minimized in the event the sale fell thru that there would
enough time to promote and show the house during the peak summer and early fall season.

Throughout the closing process, Donna was the most dependable party, Since I was not in Tennesse during
the closing process, there were communication breakdowns between me and the attorney’s office handling
the closing. Donna kept following up on the process and would call or email documents to ensure that
closing occurred timely. There was a drainage issue with the property and the contractor chosen to do the
work was unable to do it as soon as I wanted but Donna kept following up and ensured that it was done
before closing.

Donna is the best realtor I have worked with and I have bought and sold homes in Oregon, California and

SE Honolulu

It gives me great pleasure to recommend Donna. She was invaluable in the sale of my house in 2009. I found Donna to be very knowledgable, enthusiastic,dependable and cooperative. She was always willing to go beyond the requirements of her “job” and assisted me in any way she could. Donna is very professional and personable. She always knew when to give her “don’t worry” philosophy, and tell me that the right person would come along and want this house.Evidently, her philosophy worked, because that right person came along. I found Donna to be aware of the changes in the market in a very depressing time. Her advise was always timely and helpful. I always felt that I could depend on her to look out for my interest throughout the entire process. I was lucky when I took a friend’s advise to hire her as my REALTOR, she became a true friend. –

Donna is by far, the greatest, well informed and patient realtor we have ever worked with. She really cares about her clients and what is best for them. We would recommend her to anyone. –

Ken & Louise Smith

I knew Donna as a friend and she seemed very sincere about what she did. We wanted someone to help find us a house that we wanted. Donna went above and beyond what we expected, emailing us pictures of houses, and taking us to look at them. Actually the home we are living in now she found it and we came by and seen it and fell in love with it. We thought it would be out of our price range, but Donna knew it was not because she knew what we were willing to spend. Donna is willing to go out of her way to help you as a realtor and a friend. I would say get Donna Mikesh because in my opinion she is the best in the business. –

Reda and Robert Haney

We lived in the State of Maine and wanted to move to Virginia or Tennessee. Made a couple of trips to the area and decided we’d like to look at the NE corner of TN. We stopped at Donna’s office on our way through the area and “Bam”, it was an instant connection with Donna, my wife and I, as well as an instant liking for this part of the State. She spent 3-4 days with us at that time, showing us the area. We headed back to ME – to sell our home there. It took us about a year and a half to get it sold, but Donna never gave up. She stayed in constant contact with us with ideas for all the property listings to look at that would work for us/what we wanted in a home in our price range. Once the ME home was under contract – we spent another week with Donna and actually found a house we really loved and could afford. She worked tirelessly for us to coordinate the closing of the ME home – our move to TN – and the closing of our new home in Limestone. We did it — mostly thanks to Donna!! We would recommend her highly to anyone interested in looking at the market. She is so easy to work with, honest and kept our interests at the forefront the entire time… her fun personality makes her so easy to work with. We have worked with many realtors – she is the best. AND, I’m happy to say she was, and still is, our first friend in TN. –

Kenneth Maloy

My wife and I build and sell condo’s, after a less than satisfactory experience with another agent, Donna came into our lives. Donna brought a level of energy to our project that was infectious, she immediately set up one condo as a demo(furniture, pictures the works) and suddenly, we had a contract and shortly after that our last one sold!This is our agent for life, she is not only our realestate person but has become a real friend and helper in our business.Her positive spirit and real work ethic makes her a pleasure to work with for both us and our customers. Donna should teach people how to be the “best” real estate” people, yep, she’s that good! –

Scott Brown

Donna is an outstanding agent. If you are looking for someone who values the sale or purchase of your home as much as you do, then you must choose her. She’s the best. She sold our house in 30 days at full price. –

Robin Sweeton

Donna’s web page states “I go the extra mile to help you achieve your goals.” and she means it!
We first contacted Donna in OCT 2009 based on a roadside sign advertising a new 3/2 log home. She told us the home was under contract but volunteered to show it to us anyway. In addition she identified a number of other log homes in the area that met our rather stringent specifications and chauffeured us around to see the ones we liked.
When we decided what we really wanted was the original one under contract she worked with the builder to identify possible sites for the home. We returned to NE Tennessee to look at prospective sites in late NOV. We met with her and the builder to select a building site and to physically stake out the layout of the house on the site.
Since contract signing she has continued to protect our interests. Over the objections of both the builder and land owner, she ensured closing on the land did not take place until completion of tests to certify the property would support the required septic system. She went so far as to send test results to the State government to verify the property was suitable for the proposed construction.
Ground-breaking is to begin the second week of JAN. Based on our experience to date, we have the upmost faith Donna will continue to oversee and support our interests as construction progresses.
We whole-heartedly recommend and endorse Donna Mikesh. –

Jim Bolinger

I would recommend Donna to all my friends because she did an excellent job for us. Donna went above and beyond what I expected from a realtor.
My Husband and I are from NY and we needed to find a place to live in one week. Donna set us up with many drive- bys so that we could view before we made an appointment to walk through. We did find a home within a week and back in NY by weeks end. Now the real work would begin for Donna. She had to do all the leg work for us because of us living out of State. We drove down to TN. a few days before closing and all was taken care of by our new friend Donna. Closing went without a problem. I am so glad to have found Donna when we needed a realtor. –

Margaret Liese

Donna was actually the agent for the sellers of what became our home. She was a pleasure to work with and her continued attention since the sale has earned our highest respect. –

Angela Miller

We were put in touch with Donna by a Century 21 realtor out of state. Our expectations were far exceeded by Donna’s knowledge, quality of effort, ethics and kindness. What impressed me most about Donna was here vast knowledge of homes and her patient understanding of the stressfulness involved with moving and moving from another state. I would tell a friend that choosing Donna for your move would be one of the best things you could do for yourself. –

Mary Hazen

Donna is friendly and very helpful. I would recommend her to anyone. –


Started working with Donna by chance and loved all the work she put into finding our home. She really listened to what we wanted in a home and worked around our schedule. Very scary being first time home buyers, but Donna answered all our crazy questions. –
