Donna Hamaker

What is the one thing that your clients should know about you?
It’s not about me – it’s about you. It’s about listening, really listening, to what my clients are saying about their dreams, fears, wants and needs when it comes to buying or selling a home – or both! It’s important to me that my clients always do what’s in their best interest.

What is your professional and educational background?
A native Arlingtonian and graduate of James Madison University, I’ve lived in the area all my adult life. With three children having attended Arlington and Fairfax County schools – both public and private, I bring a depth of knowledge about the region that adds to the strength of what I offer clients. My background in photography and corporate marketing plays a key role in my knowledge of promotion and advertising, and the importance of an eye for detail.

What are your interests outside of work?
I enjoy giving back to the community with Doorways for Women & Families, Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society – where I have been a Candidate for “Woman of the Year.” I’m on the Board of Directors for the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and a Leadership Arlington alumna– both of which give me an “ear to the ground” to better serve my clients!

How would your clients describe you?
“Donna is, without a doubt, the best realtor in the area. She has all the qualities you look for in an agent (attentive, knowledgeable, respectful, incredibly nice to you while not being a pushover). She doesn't look for a quick sell but instead ensures that what you get is exactly what you want.”

“She got us three competing offers and was savvy with the other brokers the whole way through.”

“She worked super quickly to get our offer in on our home when offers were due two days after we toured it! She did an amazing job helping us navigate all the processes involved from financing to insurance.”

“Donna is an outstanding realtor. She listened and, more importantly, understood what we were looking for and how to win in this market.”

What Clients Say

From the time I first contacted her until signing the final papers, Donna was a devoted resource who truly went above and beyond to ensure that I felt comfortable weighing different options in addition to always listening to my concerns and accommodating my priorities while looking at properties.

Client

Donna is very knowledgeable and got right to work to help me successfully purchase my new home. I have referred several colleagues as well as my daughter to her for their real estate needs.”

Michael G.

Donna is, without a doubt, the best realtor in the area. She has all the qualities you look for in an agent (attentive, responsive, knowledgeable, respectful, incredibly nice to you while not being a pushover). She doesn’t look for a quick sell but instead ensures that what you get is exactly what you want.

Our home buying experience was incredibly smooth – we were a bit wishy washy to begin with, not expecting to buy anything for 1-2 years, but Donna still took the time to meet with us so we could see what was on the market in our price range without pushing for a sale. When we found something and had to act fast, her responsiveness was unparalleled and she ensured everything was taken care of from beginning to end, always taking the initiative.

Also, it’s incredibly helpful to have a realtor who's plugged into the local community and knows a lot of the companies whose services you’ll need. That’s the kind of person Donna is. The best.”

Trine M.

Donna was an absolute joy to work with. Throughout the entire process we felt supported, heard and valued as her clients. Her knowledge of the real estate market in the DMV area is incredible and her passion shows – she was always available to chat at odd hours of the day and worked super quickly to get our offer in on our home when offers were due two days after we toured it! She was so patient with us on our journey to purchasing our first home and we are so happy with it. She did an amazing job helping us navigate all the processes involved from financing to insurance. I couldn’t imagine using anyone else!”

Dan & Julia R.

I have to give a big shout out to Donna Hamaker, our amazing real estate agent… we couldn’t have gotten through the last few months without her. For anyone local who needs an agent, I could not give you a greater recommendation than Donna and Buck & Associates.

Just a few details that separate her from the rest: she gave great suggestions on how best to get our house ready for sale. She was a wealth of resources, from house cleaners to handymen to title companies to lenders to couch cleaners, and they all were the best of the best and reasonably priced. She publicized our house everywhere… she hosted a brokers open, and neighbors open and a regular open house, with food and drinks, on her own dime. She got us three competing offers on our townhouse, and was savvy with the other brokers the whole way through.

There’s much much more, so feel free to contact me so I can gush! Thank you, Donna! We’re honored to have you as our agent!”

Ryan and Kerry L.

Donna is just wonderful. From the moment we called her to chat about selling, to the day we closed on our new home, she listened to all of our concerns and to what we wanted in a new home. No question was too small for her to answer thoughtfully. With her help, we were able to prepare our home well and complete both transactions smoothly. There are a lot of circumstances one can’t control in this process, but she did so much work with every detail to make it all happen smoothly.”

Jason and Betsy D.

From Day 1, Donna was supportive and communicative with my family as we sold our home of 28 years, ensuring we felt confident about every step of the process. She gave very shrewd advice on how to update our home, while considering our budget, and provided us with detailed research and reports when pricing our home. With her graceful honesty and leadership, our needs and her vision for staging and updating came to fruition in a calm way. She provided us with detailed steps that were easy to understand, individualized to our family’s needs.

We not only got an amazing price for our home, we had complete trust that everything was above board and priced appropriately. We had so many compliments on how she staged the house, the details added throughout the house, and her listing description, as well as how her enthusiasm and honesty really showed through every step of the way!”
