When I hired Donna Bulika to sell my house, I didn’t present her with an easy task. My house was already listed with a different agent who couldn’t produce results. The house was sitting on the market with little attention from potential buyers and zero offers hence I decided to look for more professional help. I contacted Donna and our meeting was scheduled the very next day. It was such a pleasure to watch Donna take matters into her hands and turn the situation around. She was very professional and easy to work with. She never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. Communicative, helpful, patient and totally generous with her time and energy she surpassed my highest expectations. Before I knew it my house was back on the market. Beautiful, improved décor, highly professional pictures on MLS and brochures, extensive advertising drew a lot of attention resulting in endless showings and great feedback . The house was sold within days with multiple offers.
I would hire Donna again in a heartbeat. She’s absolutely the best and I’m really looking forward to working with her again in the future.
Donna was the key to making my transition to Toronto less stressful and actually enjoyable. Her knowledge of the market and neighborhoods was remarkable and she was always professional and enjoyable to work with.
Donna is absolutely amazing!!! If you want A+ quality service, I would definitely recommend her for the job! I have had her as my agent for both my condo purchases and selling my one condo. Your home is your biggest asset, and with my case, was an emotional ride. Donna helped me through every step of the way- any time you have a question she replies immediately or answers your call right away. She is really and truly only after the best interest of her client and is a great negotiator. In selling my condo, her stager and photographer did a phenomenal job as well. I will always use her real estate services in the future.
Thank you Donna for being a great friend and great at what you do. 🙂
Donna is amazing, so professional and so dedicated to her clients. It was a pleasure to work with her. The best realtor ever. Thank you so much for everything. Donna.
Thank you so much for the gift cards which we received today – what a wonderful surprise!!!
We are settling in to our condo and enjoying every minute of it. It is a very well run building and everyone is very friendly and helpful. We even discovered that we have our own personal wine cellar on the P2 level – your generous gift will help to stock it!! The walking paths along the lake behind the building are magnificant and it’s just like being in the Muskokas – I think we will be happy here for a couple of years! We are discovering some nice restaurants, but have not been to Luci’s so that is something we will look forward to.
Many thanks again, not only for the lovely gifts, but for all your help and professionalism. We will definitely use your services again and would happily recommend you to anyone.
Donna is absolutely amazing! She is a high-level professional with strong real estate market expertise, exceptional work ethics and outstanding dedication to clients’ needs and interests! Only with Donna’s help we were able to find a wonderful place to purchase in just several weeks. Donna went with us to see many properties, demonstrated strong understanding of Toronto market and always obtained additional information on each alternative. Always punctual, thoughtful and delicate, Donna is a true pleasure to work with! We are very grateful to Donna for being a great support during price negotiations, as she was able to obtain a better pricing at the very last moment, when we were already ready to agree on a higher price. Donna helped navigate a number of deal-related technicalities, inspections and post-purchase procedures. Each member of our family, including kids, absolutely loves Donna! Since the purchase, Donna has become a great friend of our family and we recommended her to a few friends. We wish Donna lots of success in her business, she fully deserves that!
Donna helped my wife and me to find our first residence when we arrived in Canada a few years back. She made sure to fully understand what we were looking for, took a whole day time, picked us up and showed us several great places in our preferred area, one of which became our first home. Donna is highly knowledgeable and makes sure that there is a fit between her client, the place and the landlord. We can fully recommend Donna and her services for anything real estate-related.
Donna helped my wife and I buy our first house. It was an absolute pleasure working with Donna. We trusted her completely and she went above and beyond any expectations. We love the house, I see how hard she works and how promptly she answers all needed questions on late nights and weekends. Donna is a very hard working professional and I wish there were more people who do their job as she does. I would recommend only her for the job, don’t waste time with anybody else!
I will remember you fondly as you have been the saviour to so many of our Organization’s employees, including myself, in finding residential space here in Toronto. In fact, for a while there, you were practically the only realtor with whom the Office staff was working! That is a testament to your expertise and partnership. Your name always came up! Honestly, if I could have contracted with you as the sole relocation agent, I would have!
Thank you and I wish you all the luck in your career and business!
Donna helped us find our dream home. She really went to bat for us and made sure we got a home that meets our needs. She was great to work with and we would use her services again without hesitation.
Donna is an incredible person to work with! She helped us buy our first condo and we felt absolutely taken care of. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience, helping us feel confident in our decisions. She worked around our busy schedules and made herself available at all times. It was clear that she did a lot of research before each viewing and when it came time to put in an offer she really fought to get us a great deal. We always felt that Donna had our best interest in mind and we feel so lucky that we met her. She is a genuine and kind person and just an absolute pleasure to work with. We recommend her to all of our friends and look forward to working with her again in the future.
Thank you for all your hard work Donna, you truly are the best!!!
It was really a pleasure working with Donna. My husband and I were grateful for all the hard work that Donna has done to make our property sold within 15 days of listing in a bad market period. Donna is professional and it was the right decision to work with her. She gave us guidelines, suggestions on how to stage our house. She also provided us with statistics for the houses that were sold in the area which helped us a lot to make the right decision. In addition to that she always replies quickly to our emails, answers our calls and provide us with answers to all our questions.
Thank you again and wish you all the best!
Donna has been a great help in finding my first accommodation to rent in Toronto. Working with her has been an absolute pleasure – she is a great professional and is also a lovely person to deal with. I couldn’t be happier with the help I got with regard to settling in Canada. I will definitely recommend Donna to anyone looking to rent, sell or buy a property!
How to sell a condo in 10 days…..
Donna, I would like to thank you for ALL your efforts in the recent sale of my condo; from the attention to detail in preparing my space for viewings, to your involvement working with my tenant throughout the entire process. I really appreciated your prompt answers to my many questions & in keeping me informed throughout the selling process. You helped me find the perfect buyer for my home, while securing the best possible price. I highly recommend Donna Bulika and the Sutton Group Realty Systems Inc team!
Thank you again for everything.
Thank you Donna for such an amazing experience. We couldn’t be happier and more grateful in all your endless help you gave us in purchasing our first house, what an amazing resourceful person. We would refer Donna to our friends that are interested in purchasing a house. She is very professional, listening carefully and understanding all our needs and preferences, very nice and polite, not pushing and following up after the closure of the deal and helping out in finding the lawyers, home inspectors and even renting out our condo. That was a great support. Thanks again!
People say that the best way to find an agent or any other service is through recommendations of friends and acquaintances. I strongly disagree! We all are different and if I like something or someone, it doesn’t mean everyone likes the same. When we bought our first home years ago we had an agent that was recommended by a good friend of mine. We went through a very bad experience of the whole process and lost “a good friend of mine”. Since then I trust only my own instinct.
If you want to find your Real Estate Agent, visit Open Houses, see how agents work, what they say, look at their eyes, you will have to trust them. Even if in the end you are not satisfied with agent’s service, you would blame only yourself and not your friends or anyone else.
This time when we decided to sell our home we interviewed 4 agents. We liked Donna the most and chosen her to sell our house. She sold our house for more than we expected, we received an outstanding service and met a wonderful person, who is now a family friend! Our intuition was so right!
Thank you with all our hearts for your super excellent service. You are totally amazing, we could not have asked for anyone better. Thank you for helping us find the perfect place!
It can easily be said that Donna Bulika is a ‘Realtor’s Realtor”. Donna did not know at the time that she was working with us that both my husband and I had at one time been Realtors in the U.S. We flew into Toronto on Labor Day weekend and immediately tasked Donna with finding a home on the busiest house shopping weekend ever. We looked at properties from morning to dusk, relentless for a truly good property. When we decided to change direction on neighborhoods, Donna must have pulled her tired body up to the computer so very late that night . in the morning, she drove us up to the most lovely, light-filled place in a charming neighborhood close to town–perfect! In negotiating the contract, she remembered all the intricate details important to our needs. We think we were very fortunate to have worked with Donna.
Donna is absolutely amazing! When my family was relocated to Toronto Donna helped us find our new home. From the initial contact she was nothing but responsive, and that responsiveness continued throughout the entire process. She was extremely accommodating of our schedule. She listened to our needs and wants attentively and provided us a list of potential properties that may meet those requirements. We never felt like she pushed for places that she wanted us to occupy, but rather gave us what WE wanted. We truly felt like she put our interests and desires before anything else. The house didn’t have a garage and we expressed our desire to rent a garage space in the neighborhood, but we didn’t ask Donna for help. Donna took the initiative searching for a parking space at a high rise a couple blocks from the house. Thanks to Donna’s hard work, we live in a house that we love.
With the top notch service we received from Donna we have recommended her to many of our colleagues who have relocated to Toronto in recent years as we had no doubt that she would provide the same quality of service to them. We’ve heard nothing but positive comments from them and some of them even recommended her to their friends and colleagues.
Winnie and I met Donna by chance when we’re checking out a place West of Bloor. She was very accomodating and friendly and at the same time very knowledgeable about the area. I guess right there and then Winnie and I felt we’ve connected with her. Somehow she made us feel important and not just another “client”. It was our first time to buy a house and having Donna around to guide us along the way made it so easy and not as daunting as we’ve imagine. She’s always quick to respond when we have questions or whenever we want to see another place. She is very professional and easy to get along with. We liked how she gave us advices on each of the places we’ve visited. That helped us a lot to make informed decisions. We highly recommend Donna especially to a young couple like us. You won’t be disappointed!
I would highly recommend Donna to anybody selling or buying a house. She does her homework and markets your house to your best advantage. We received multiple offers because of Donna’s strategy. Her staging ability and artistic instincts helped us to attract an incredible amount of potential buyers during our open house.
When we were looking for a new house, Donna was willing to show us many different options. She would research the market and make sure that we had a full picture before submitting any offer. It was a win-win situation for us.
Thank you so much for helping us find a great place to live. It has been a pleasure to work with you, and we will definitely refer others to you if we have the opportunity! Thanks!
It was a pleasure to work with you. Thank you for your attentiveness and professionalism, for helping us live in a special place during our posting to Toronto. All the best in your work and your life’s path.
Thank you Donna for such an amazing gift. I am truly grateful for all that you have done and couldn’t be happier. The condo is fantastic and I am loving everything about it. You have a beautiful soul and are an amazing person! I will make sure to refer to any friend that is interested in purchasing a condo/house. Thanks again!
Donna sold my condo in a very short time. Great job and was so professional and easy to work with. I would recommend here to my friends , when looking to sell or purchase a home Great Job Donna .. Thanks again!
Donna helped us to purchase our first home, even negotiated a good price for us in this frenzy market. Excellent, excellent agent, patient, never pushy, Donna worked with our budget. Thank you! We will absolutely use her again and recommend to friends looking to purchase or sell a home. Thanks again!
I’ve been working with Donna since she got her real estate licence. She has a keen eye and strong intuition when comes to investing in real estate. Her standards are as high as the expectations on her returns. She is always on the search for a new, hot neighbourhood, undiscovered pocket of the city or a great condo project. She knows right away if an investment makes sense or not. Donna has helped me multiple times to buy, sell and lease properties. What a great experience! She is very professional, knowledgeable and caring. Because of Donna, my portfolio is very diverse. At first, I would only consider condos as investments – then Donna opened my eyes. I flipped a house at a time when the flipping was very profitable. I bought townhouses just before their prices skyrocketed. I bought condos when no one was buying. I will always use her services from now on and will continue to refer her to others!
I highly recommend! Extremely professional, dedicated & eager to help! If you’re looking for a real estate company for buying or selling properties, look no further! 5-star!
Donna is a great professional! Highly recommended and would continue to refer!
Like many others who were planning on buying or selling a house, we had a lot of questions such as: whether or not to use a Realtor, what should be the listing price, how realistic was the asking price for the house we were planning to purchase, what was the future potential of the area where we were planning to buy a house, etc. In our case – there was no other option – it had to be with the agent without a doubt since we both worked full time and could not afford to arrange the showings several times per day during several weeks.
As a result of working with Donna, we sold our house and bought a wonderful new one. It wasn’t the first house that we bought in Canada and we had experience in the past working with a number of real estate agents.
So how did our experience working with Donna was different from our previous encounters?
Donna has approached all our requests while helping us find the new house with high professionalism and extreme patience and frankly speaking there were quite a few radical changes on our wish list.
As for the personal level – It was extremely comfortable to work with Donna. We always felt that she worked in our best interest. For example, after a long search, we saw a house that we liked very much. We liked the house itself and its location, so much that we were ready to put an offer on it. We would have never even thought that that street will soon become a high traffic area. Thanks to Donna’s due diligence we were convinced to rethink putting an offer. After that, we have submitted two other offers and won in two separate occasions, but due to last minute circumstances, we’ve cancelled them both. Donna’s reaction, however, has not shown us even a hint of annoyance or regret of the time being wasted – quite the contrary – friendly smile and an encouraging cheer that next time we will find the right one!
As a result – we have our Dream House which cost us 70,000 less than our original budget was.
Besides everything else, Donna is very tactful and punctual. For over two months of every day showings, she was always on time and never ever has she let us feel a slight frustration caused by our requests of late showings, from about 8 to 9 pm. Every morning we were receiving an up-to-date email with listings that were matching our criteria and by evening Donna would have managed to book the showings. And since Donna pays extreme attention to details the route was perfectly “mapped out” with no time wasting.
We would sincerely like to wish Donna success both personal and professional. By all means and without a doubt we will be referring all our friends and acquaintances to Donna. In our phone book, her number is saved under “Donna Sunshine”!
