Donna was great from the very beginning! She had great insight and was prepared at every meeting or discussion we had on the phone. Great attitude and integrity during the whole process, including negotiations which seemed at times we were at opposite ends of the spectrum from the buyer. This was our first time selling, so there were various things in the process that caught us off guard because we weren't prepared or didn't have have them explained - but all said and done we would still go back to Donna again!

Not being from the Edwardsville area we didn't know which realtor to use in buying a house. We decided to use Donna after seeing she had good reviews. We were glad we worked with Donna. She was quick to communicate with us and made the process less painful. We highly recommend Donna as a realtor. The Shields

We were new to Edwardsville and transferred with a relocation company. Edwardsville/Glen Carbon has such a wonderful diverse mix of new and historic homes, we were not sure which we wanted. Donna did an excellent job helping us understand the various options and once we decided on a historic home, Donna was a wealth of knowledge about the downtown area, historic homes, schools, etc. We had a pretty specific picture of our perfect home. Donna stayed on top of the market for us until we found our perfect home. We love it! Donna is great to work with and a pleasure to get to know. We highly recommend (and have) Donna Gayler. Less ...

My experience with Donna included securing a purchase contract on a home. The appraisal on the home did not correlate with the contract and she helped negotiate a resolution. We were unable to reach an agreeable resolution and she cancelled the contract and secured the return of our down payment. Donna was very responsive to our needs due to my relocation and helped find another home very quickly. We are very pleased with our new home and especially with the service Donna provided.

I would highly recommend Donna. She was extremely helpful to me when I was buying my first home. She was patient and easy to work with. She showed me numerous other homes that she thought I might be interested in, not only the houses I requested to see. If and when I decide to sell, she will be my go-to Realtor.

We highly recommend working with Donna and will call her again when the time comes. She was nothing but helpful, all the time. No matter how many questions you have or how many details need ironed out, she was patient and extremely easy to work with. She was truly our representative in the sale, always putting our priorities/needs first instead of just trying to make a sale. She is incredibly knowledgeable in regard to the local real estate market and is able to leverage that often. Nothing but good things to say! Less ... More

We were lucky in choosing Donna from the list of realtors. We wanted a full time realtor because we were selling our home in Iowa and moving to Illinois very quickly. She was always available to show homes and we did look at very many homes in a short time. As she has lived in Edwardsville for awhile, she was a wealth of information for us. I would certainly recommend Donna for your needs.

Last summer, we moved from Denver to the Edwardsville area. We were so blessed to find Donna Gayler. Her comprehensive knowledge of the area, good nature and patience, go-get-em attitude and strong negotiating skills helped us find the perfect house for our family. Donna never tired at showing us houses (often more than once!) and made the often stressful house hunting process easier by working around our schedule. She's a dream to work with and we'd recommend her to anyone looking for a house in the Metro East area. Less ... More

Donna was a pleasure to work with! As a 24-year old, and a first time home buyer, not knowing what I was doing in order to purchase a home was an understatement. Donna was patient and helpful every step of the way. On frequent occasions she was crawling under a furnace to see a date, asking questions about windows/roof when I didn?t know what to ask, and sniffing out for mold. Just as I didn?t know what to look for in a home, I also didn?t have a clue what I really wanted out of a home ? so I had to see them all. Donna was incredibly patient taking me to see numerous homes, repeating visits to homes, and always worked with my busy schedule to make time for me on nights and weekends. I HIGHLY recommend Donna to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. I will use her to sell/buy my next home without a doubt. Less ... More

Donna helped make our transition of moving from Chicago to the St. Louis suburbs a dream. She was able to listen to our needs and quickly identify homes that checked all our boxes! She saved us time looking at homes and most importantly on our purchase price. Great communication, follow up, and attention to detail from our first viewing to the closing on our home. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an agent to give her a call. It might be the best decision you make in your home buying process! Less ... More

If you want a real estate broker that will definitely go the extra mile for you, then Donna Gayler is definitely the broker for you! I was definitely extremely picky during the process of viewing listings, but she was always very patient! She sent us every listing that came onto the market with our must haves, as well as showing us every listing we found on our own as well! She was very knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy, and also if a question was asked that she wasn't sure on, she had no problems with saying "I'm not sure, but let me find out." I will definitely recommend her to anyone that mentions to me that they are looking to sell or buy! Less ... More

Donna has been the best agent we could ask for.  She helped us list our house and look for our next home.  She did a tremendous amount of research and helped us find our dream home and priced our house perfectly.  Donna had several things planned at our house to generate a tremendous amount of traffic.  By the way our home was under contract in 12 days!!!  We found the home we love 2 days before our house was under contract and are still in awe of her skills.  Please give Donna your utmost consideration to become your realtor.  Donna is readily available and is the perfect resource for the most stressful, and exciting, time of your life.

Due to a house fire, we were forced into the housing market during a chaotic time for our family. We took the opportunity to move to a new community we were somewhat familiar with, but we relied heavily on Donna?s years of living in the area and her expertise to help guide us in our decision making. Donna help us navigate through a very tricky negotiation to help us buy the only house available we truly loved. Donna - Thank you for all your patience and the time you spent with us!! We love our new home! David, Kellie and the kids. Less ... More

Donna Gayler was very helpful in showing me properties in the Edwardsville and Glen Carbon, IL area. She was very knowledgeable of the neighborhoods, and immediate with responses to all inquiries that I had. I would certainly work with Donna again, and recommend her as an option to anyone buying homes in the area.

Donna was great! We were first time home buyers and had a lot of questions. She was low pressure and just wanted us to be happy with the home that we chose. If we had a question, she was knowledgable but was not afraid to say, "Let me find out." She wanted the information that she provided to be accurate. She was not afraid to call the selling agent with specific requests. I would recommend Donna to anyone looking to buy a new home!
