H. & S. Damgacioglu, Buyers
We worked with Cynthia Patrick and The Alan Donald Team at Keller Williams Realty on our first home purchase and extremely satisfied with Cynthia's professionalism and kindness. She helped us a lot on out home-buying process. She was very informative, responsive, and very patient. She attended the home orientation on our behalf and she wrote every single detail. We are very grateful to Cynthia and the Alan Donald Team. H. & S. Damgacioglu, MUSC

I worked with Alan Donald on four different real estate transactions. He was always diligent, very thorough and brought a very high degree of professionalism to everything that he did. He will also help to work through any problems that may arise during the buying/selling process. I highly recommend Alan and his team! L. Getka, Real Estate Investor

Hello Mr. Donald, This email is long overdue. We have been meaning to let you know how amazing our home buying experience was with Cynthia Partrick. We were looking for a home in South Carolina last year, having lived in CT all of our lives. This was no easy feat due to the rapid turnover of homes. We put offers on multiple homes that got rejected for one reason or another, but Cynthia was extremely patient with us. We had a very limited amount of time to shop for a home since I only had 4 days of vacation so we had to return to Connecticut without having secured a purchase. Cynthia was able to tour multiple homes for us via FaceTime and was extremely thorough. We finally bought our home sight unseen and were pretty nervous about it but when we saw it in person, we couldn’t be happier due to Cynthia’s thoroughness. Thank you, Cynthia!! J. and S. Ross

"We've worked with Alan and his team on 2 home sales and 2 home purchases, all in Mt. Pleasant. Should there ever be a 3rd, Alan will be our first phone call. To say that he is helpful is an understatement. He guides you throughout the process and stays on top of all the small details so that you don't have to. He knows that (y)our happiness is the key to any sale or purchase, and he never pushes his own agenda. He may have umpteen other clients but he'll always make you feel at the top of the list. Alan is definitely the realtor you want for your next big move. On top of it all, he's just a nice guy to work with. All the better." M. Carpenter, Mount Pleasant, SC

"Alan and his team were especially helpful during our two years in Charleston, both in searching for and purchasing a townhome and selling the same townhome this past year. Living out of state at the time of purchase, Alan would have multiple listings ready for our viewing when we made visits. We found Charleston to be a difficult market to buy, available homes going very quickly. Alan got to know our needs very quickly and was able to find a townhome that we ended up purchasing sight unseen, although Alan did do a visual tour with his notebook. Alan and/or Meghan always made themselves available to assist us. In addition, we looked at several family homes when we thought we might locate there permanently. Alan helped us through the sale/closing of our townhome even though we sold it without listing. In addition to our experience, he assisted in the preparation of selling our daughter's home which he sold within a week. Finally, he has kept in contact with us following the closing last July, providing paperwork for taxes he did not have to do. We came upon Alan by chance, but we would highly recommend him and his team for any future buyers or sellers in the Charleston area." Brad & Laurie E., Indianapolis, IN (Mount Pleasant Homes)

"Alan, you did an AWESOME job marketing and selling Tammy's home. She was pleased. I am glad she has that behind her and can go to the next chapter in her life. She told me your recommended $15,000 more than the other two REALTORs and you got it!!!! You are my go-to guy for Mount Pleasant now. GREAT JOB! Thanks for all your hard work." Janet
Brian & Laurel Cherochak
Brian and Laurel discuss the experience of selling their home at 593 Antebellum Ln. in Mount Pleasant. "The reason we called Alan in the first place is because of the marketing material he had shared through email, mail, and the Belle Hall website. We were very impressed with his quick response and ability to meet with us almost immediately after calling because we were in a bit of a time crunch because we were doing a corporate relocation. We were also impressed with his knowledge of the neighborhood, what the homes were selling for in the neighborhood, and what folks were looking for in the neighborhood. He seemed like he knew a lot about Belle Hall and he was the perfect agent to represent us and sell our house. One other thing that he educated us on was that we could list our house for a significantly larger amount than not only what we bought it for but what we originally thought we could sell it for. He priced our house way above what we thought it was worth and sold it in 24 hours. So, it was a great experience and we're really happy we hired him. When it is all said and done we would absolutely recommend Alan Donald to anybody who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Mount Pleasant area."
