    When I bought my house back in 2011, I chose Donna to represent me. When I recently decided to sell my house, I knew I wanted Donna to represent me again. Throughout the process, Donna was organized and on top of everything that was going on. Her attention to detail is second to none. She made what was a complicated situation relatively simple, explaining everything and walking me through the whole process every step of the way. I would highly recommend Donna to anyone.

  • Donna De Rubeis is a knowledgeable, professional and very helpful agent. She tells you what has to be done, including paperwork and answers any and all questions. If she does not know, she will find out. I found her friendly, outgoing and helpful.
    Donna is a strong negotiator and worked diligently to get my property sold at the highest possible price during a declining market. I could not have sold my house without her support.
    I highly recommend her to anyone.

    When we decided to sell our home of 35 years we knew we wanted Donna to represent us. She was our son's realtor a few years ago when he was buying a home when the market was crazy with short sales. We were impressed with her professionalism navigating through the difficult paperwork and made the process easy for him. So when the time came for us to sell we did not hesitate to call Donna to represent us. Again she made it easy for us in another crazy market. She went above and beyond what other realtors would do for their clients. She took the time to go over the paperwork in detail and answered any questions or concerns we had without rushing us. She knew who to call when we needed things repaired quickly. Donna was extremely organized with all the paperwork to get the home listed, with the open house, with the offers coming in and asking questions of the potential buyers agents and the paperwork when we were in escrow. When we were in the process of choosing an offer Donna went over each one with us but emphasized that it was our decision. Once we chose an offer Donna kept on top of paperwork from the buyers agent who was not necessarily forthcoming in a timely manner. Donna told us up front that ultimately everything was our decision because it was our home and she worked for us. She respected our decisions and offered any advice if we asked for her professional opinion which we did a lot because she is up to date on all the changes and red tape and the little and big things that comes with both sides of buying and selling a home. And she really listened to us. We would totally recommend Donna De Rubeis to anyone who is selling or buying a home.

    My experience with Donna for anybody listing or selling a house - You need to grab a hold of Donna as soon as possible. She was the best representative I’ve ever had in any real estate transaction! She was extremely knowledgeable, very experienced, professional, patient and worked hard to get me the best price and the best closing. She went over every question in the contract and thoroughly explained it. It was such a pleasure - it was like having a real estate attorney proofreading the contract & counter offers for me. It took all the stress out of the complete transaction and made the buying and selling the most pleasurable I’ve ever experienced.

    We need more realtors like Donna De Rubeis in Valencia - a total package and a pro at what she does.
    She’s a real and true 5 star ***** realtor!

  • This was my third time working with Donna. I have enjoyed having her as my realtor each time that I needed to buy or sell a property. She knows the ins and outs of real estate and is so informative. I feel like I can ask her anything and she will know the answer and if not then she will find out ASAP. She is very professional and has her client’s best interests in mind. My husband and I are so grateful to have worked with her throughout the years.

  • When my mom passed suddenly, I needed to sell her home from her trust. Since I did not live in that city, I was compelled to place the transaction under the complete control of a REALTOR. Donna proved the best possible choice and I have never regretted it. What I got was comprehensive professionalism, professional staging, a prompt trouble free sale at the highest recorded price in the area! Donna is terrific-PERIOD.

  • For Natalie and I this was our first home buying experience. As a buyer having never gone through the home buying process before we had many choices to make and one of those was choosing a realtor. When I called Donna to discussed our loan and what we were looking for in a home, she instantly went to work. It quickly became obvious that we didn't just pick a realtor we chose the right realtor. She found houses within our guidelines, scheduled showings and was always the first to the properties. Now as my family and I settle into our home I look back at the buying process and truly appreciate the support and guidance we received from Donna from start to finish. Commitment, Diligence, Ethics, Integrity! That's Donna

  • Donna is excellent as a realtor. She has helped my three sons and their extended families with buying and selling their homes. We have used her for 14 years, when I was her first client selling my mothers home. I recommend her to everyone I know that has been considering buying and/ or selling. Donna is very through and helpful. She stays on it every step of the way and keeps you informed. I highly recommend Donna.

  • .. choosing Donna was a priceless decision ...she was in constant communication ...she helped us feel very comfortable about the process

    While living in Utah, I needed to sell my parents’ house from within a trust. Referred to Donna, she advised all the next steps including personally staging the property for maximum appeal.

    She was also in constant communication with escrow, the title company and negotiations with the buyer’s realtor and the many others involved. She was great with explaining the entire process and with most of the family out of state, she sent all documents electronically.
    We are very grateful for Donna, she is a great realtor, never leaving us waiting for answers.

    Choosing Donna as our realtor was a priceless decision for us, without whom, the process would have been more stressful, time consuming, and confusing. Thank you, Donna, for being such a great realtor and person, we are all very grateful.

  • New Home Grayson Five Knolls
    ...she has extensive knowledge of the real estate process
    ... Donna also communicated and explained everything in detail
    ... after a few days on the market we received several offers
    ... she's quick and extremely intelligent

    In 2016 we decided to sell our Town home and purchase a single family home. The market was high so we knew would probably get a good price for our home but we would be stretching our budget on a new home. Donna helped us purchase our town home 8 years prior. She has extensive knowledge of the real estate process and of the Santa Clarita area. Donna took great care of our needs, had the most beautiful photographs and 360 degree photos done, she also communicated everything so we knew what to expect. There were so many options of what we could do and Donna carefully explains everything in detail. After just a few days on the market we received several offers, one in particular stood out, it was $7k above asking. Donna negotiated it so that the buyer would have to pay $7k cash if the house didn't appraise for that, which it didn't and I'm so glad she put this in the contract because we would never have known. She's quick and extremely intelligent, meeting the needs of her clients and never pushy!

  • Take it from me, I have used Donna for both the purchase and the sale of my town home and have been extremely satisfied with her service. She gives 110% and goes above and beyond her duties. Donna takes her job seriously and will review every paper, detail, and service for the closure of your sale/purchase. I just wish I could bring her to Washington with me for when I'm ready to purchase my retirement home.

    Donna you are the best!

    Our experience working with Donna De Rubeis as our realtor has been special. Our first meeting began by her stating, “I work for you.” That statement made us very comfortable and invoked a trust that grew with every interaction we had going forward.

    Donna’s professionalism and attention to details throughout the entire listing/selling process was very much appreciated and a credit to her commitment to perform at a high level.
    Thank you, Donna, for making our selling experience a memorable one that we will never forget.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Donna on a purchase transaction where I represented the buyer, and she, the seller. Our transaction closed in Feb 2014. Donna has proven herself to be the consummate professional when it comes to Santa Clarita real estate. She went above and beyond to help our transaction come to a satisfactory close, where both of our clients were able to achieve their goals. When there was a bump in the road, Donna was there to take action. I appreciate you, Donna! Looking forward to another successful escrow in the future. - Robert Mickalson, Realtor, Realty Executives Valencia

  • Rose, Ernesto and Sandy!

    ... a friend offered a referral for Donna ... were it not for the sustained focus, expertise, negotiations and endless energy from Donna, our dream may not have been realized We made the decision to buy but starting online was so overwhelming. A friend referred Donna who put us at ease; no pressure, only patience and practical information. She assessed our desires for a ‘dream home” and were amazed at how efficient Donna made our search. She warned that this transaction would be challenging, as a short sale with two lenders! Immediately mapping a strategy and honestly preparing us for what would prove to be a long and often frustrating process, were it not for the sustained focus, expertise, negotiations and endless energy from Donna, our dream may not have been realized. Words cannot express the gratitude my husband and I have for Donna and recommend her without qualification or reservation. Thank you Donna. We couldn’t have gotten here without you!

    Donna was our Guardian Angel guiding us every step of the way... ... Being a former teacher, she really does her homework ... within the first week we received full asking price ...her sense of humor, her professionalism, her kindness ... her knowledge and ability to work well with other realtors enabled us to be in our "Dream Home." Updated with her daily phone calls and e-mails, our home sold within the first week its listing at full asking price. Since our new home was not ready, she was able to negotiate a rent back from the new owners. Donna coordinated all of it making us feel as if we were her only clients. Due to her marketing, knowledge, ability to work well with other Realtors, we are in our "Dream Home." Donna, we miss your daily phone calls. We Thank You from the bottom of our hearts.

  • 1st time homeowner
    ___...Donna knew what to do every step of the way to make sure everything happened when it needed to happen
    ...She made the whole experience relatively simple and straightforward

    My family and I have known Donna for a long time, so when I was ready to buy a house, I scheduled a meeting. From that moment to handing me the keys, she explained every step of the process.

    My situation involved a rather complicated short sale involving two lenders ultimately requiring a lot of things that needed to happen quickly and in a particular order. Donna knew what to do, working with the listing agent and escrow company, explaining everything very clearly.

    A short sale process can be very complicated. She made it relatively straightforward when it could have otherwise been very stressful. She is very professional. If you are in the market to buy or sell your home, I highly recommend Donna De Rubeis.

  • Donna De Rubeis really knows the Santa Clarita Valley! We had a lot of 'musts' for our new home including a main floor bedroom and bath, a sun room, and at least 5 bedrooms. We found the perfect house because of Donna's efforts! She took us to see countless houses, always with an upbeat attitude and a smile. She helped us find a lender and walked us through the process of buying a short-sale property. There is a lot involved in finding and buying a home, and Donna was there every step of the way. She kept us well informed about the buying process and answered all our questions. We could never have done it without Donna!

    ...knowledge, compassion, great communication skills of our financial future

    It quickly became evident that Donna has enhanced knowledge of the real estate and can translate that knowledge to her clients which is invaluable.
    When concluded our transaction, we felt a feeling of both success and loss. Success for having overcome the short sale process while preserving great value in our first home and loss because the woman who had acted as the guardian of our financial future was out of our lives. If you are looking for knowledge, compassion and great communication skills in a real estate agent- use Donna. It is without question that we will use her services again in the future.

    …you're a great communicator made my first home purchase a wonderful experience

    Dear Donna, After reading your recommendations, it reminded me of things you said during our journey of purchasing my first home, "Stay cautiously optimistic," and "Never assume anything." I think those two statements speak volumes in the type of services you provided.

    You always had an eye out for what was next to come on the market, calling me and making appointments for me to see the next place. Keeping in mind what I was looking for you always had a sharp eye on the latest listings and worked well with my ‘first-time-home-buyer anxiety’ driven changes.
    You never assumed anything, and no one would have ever known you were new to servicing a veteran with a VA loan. Current with all the new regulations, I appreciated your attention to detail and absolute professionalism. Through all the ups and downs, you were by my side making my first home purchase a wonderful experience.

    …Donna was exactly who we needed ...She advised that sales agents for new homes represent the builder having her represent us, we maximized our options.

    Recently married, we began our search for our first home. She developed a plan including location, property type and critical financing. In a tight credit market, she proved extremely knowledgeable about the latest requirements for various types of loans. Once pre-approved, we shopped with confidence. Donna guided us through every step.

    Always mindful that this was our first major investment, she suggested we consider a new home. She represented us on our important first visit, explained all the disclosures, maximized our options and negotiated an addendum to the purchase agreement ensuring a special incentive interest rate! Wow!

    Thrilled with our new home, we continue to recommend Donna to all our friends and family knowing that anyone who enlists her assistance will be extremely satisfied.

    ...Donna is a great communicator, always cheerful, easy to work with and so tenacious!! ...She went through great lengths to assist us in making our home more marketable.

    We wanted to let everyone know what a GREAT real estate agent Donna DeRubeis is!! We both were recently retired and looking forward to spending our “golden years” in our log house in the mountains when the real estate market took a serious downturn. We worried that when the time came to leave Stevenson Ranch, we would be unable to sell our home. But never fear…Donna came to our rescue! We had listed our home with another agent and it didn’t sell…We took it off the market and “casually” tried to sell by owner…Donna saw our “For Sale by Owner” sign and approached us about listing our home. No pressure…When the time was right we listed with her. She is without a doubt a dedicated, hard worker and will always do her best for you! We know she'll continue to provide top notch service to all her future clients.
