Last May, we decided to sell our home in Oasis Creek Subdivision, and called Donna Fell Real Estate.Donna spent a great deal of time as our interior decorator months before listing the house. She was at the house nearly every day, watching and advising the crew on color undertones to the tile layout. She spent many hours going with us at supply stores and reviewing other properties. She brought rugs and pictures from her own home to ours for the final staging.Through the listing, we received weekly printouts of the number of showings, feedback, and hits from the Donna Fell Team Internet site.Within five months of the listing, we had a contract on the house and have since closed. In this market, we feel fortunate and relived to have sold. Three cheers for the Donna Fell Team! Thank you, Donna.Dan and Ronnie SmithGlenwood Springs
