The perfect pairing of home with buyer is what Donna Jackson strives for in her real estate career. It matters to Donna that her clients are comfortable with their choices when making one of life’s major financial, emotional and lifestyle decisions.
Because, buying a home is so personal, she believes one of her main purposes is to help individuals and families find homes that not only help define them, but inspire them.
“Houses have personalities and souls as they hold the stories of people who have lived there and I love the idea of people living in a home that is a reflection of who they are,” says Donna. She tells a story about a house that sat on the market for years because its true personality couldn’t shine through. Once Donna got her hands on it, she staged the home to suit its architectural style, location and lifestyle so potential buyers could see themselves living there the way it was meant to be. Today, home and new owner are happy they found each other!
Donna came to the real estate business in a rather unconventional way. She started her career in the film making business, then earned a master’s degree in Physical Therapy from Columbia University that led to her love for all things yoga. She opened Saraswati’s Yoga Joint 13 years ago and currently owns and operates a studio in South Norwalk where she teaches several yoga classes a week and mentors new teachers.
“Yoga has led me to transparency and honesty,” says Donna. That is how Donna runs her real estate business, with complete integrity, honesty and genuineness. “Nothing is more satisfying than to find the right fit and help a buyer see how a house can become their home.”
Also through yoga, Donna met Darien agent, Eileen Hanford, and decided to turn her passion for remodeling and renovating homes into a real estate career. She joined Eileen’s award-winning team representing the Westport market. Eileen is among the top 5% producing agents in Halstead’s tristate firm.
Living in Westport for 18 years and raising her two children there has given Donna extensive knowledge of the area, the lifestyle, the schools and all that Westport has to offer.
Donna's business and community sense ensures that her clients' interests are served in meeting all of their real estate objectives.
