A licensed real estate agent for nearly 20 years, Donna Lavin has been actively working with buyers and sellers to fulfill their real estate needs since 1994.
Even before earning her license, Donna enjoyed a successful career in sales, focusing on a variety of products from cosmetics to clothing. The sales bug runs in her family as well, as Donna’s father spent many years in sales, and both of her brothers are also active in the business.
Donna has lived in the Chicagoland area for 30 years, and her clients are scattered throughout the Northwest suburbs. While she currently lives in Ivanhoe after spending many years in Barrington, she is an expert on all of the surrounding suburbs and beyond.
What attracted Donna most to the real estate industry was her desire to work with people, in addition to her love of homes and decorating. Donna’s friends and family always noticed her flare for design, and would often come to her for advice. She took this passion a step further by earning a designation in staging.
Throughout her lengthy career, Donna has worked for a variety of clients from first-time buyers to empty nesters, and with homes as low as $50,000 and up into the multi-millions. Donna has earned over 12 designations, enabling her to stay up-to-date on the industry and better serve her clients. Many of her clients have benefited from her added education in areas such as luxury homes and foreclosed and distressed properties.
For Donna, clients always come first. She is committed to service and strives to help her clients reach their real estate goals, whatever they may be. She is patient and will never push, in an effort to ensure success each and every time. She is accessible and vows to always pick up the phone. Donna has won numerous top sales awards, but what really makes her proud is seeing her clients happy and settled in the home of their dreams.
In her free time, Donna enjoys puzzles, exercise, cooking, baking, and watching football. She is also a fan of reading, as well as parties and entertaining family and friends.
