Donna Deter

Donna detterI live in the beautiful City of Annapolis with my husband of 37 years.  Our two daughters are enjoying college life –  one as a Grad Student in S. Dakota (I know – cold, right!?) and the other as a Freshman here in Maryland.  I love the Real Estate Industry – but sometimes I moonlight in my first love- acting.   You never know where you may see me- around town or on your TV or local stage.I love to help my clients.  Whether you’re selling or buying, I want to help you negotiate the best deal by understanding the current market conditions and making sure we’re right where we need to be.  As my client, you are a top priority.  I operate as more of a “boutique” – meaning I will work with a few select clients at one time to make sure you’re transaction needs are met in a timely manner.  As my client, you’re not just a number to me, you’re like family.
