“We conducted our own house hunt for almost 18 months using online tools such as Zillow, ZipRealty, and others. After being frustrated with the search, we reached out to Lynn and Donna, specifically because we were impressed with their local intelligence. Their familiarity with Wellesley, access to insight on houses/past transactions, and especially their neighborhood connections, made the difference. They were able to find us a picture perfect lot in our #1 location within 6 weeks, which no amount of online research could match.”

“Donna Maley and Lynn Donahue personify the ultimate combination of talent, intelligence, and knowledge within today’s challenging real estate market. They showed genuine interest as they guided us on our successful journey to find a home in Wellesley. Donna and Lynn compliment each other in their team approach by offering honest, professional advice that is thorough, detailed, and always sensitive to our personal concerns and questions. It is a pleasure to know and work with them.”
“Lynn + Donna = SUCCESS! They are professional, smart, caring, and truly amazing to work with. They made selling our home easy and painless. We listened to their advice and they were right on the money…got multiple offers on the first day! They are the best realtors that we’ve ever worked with. We give them five stars!”
“We were on year 7 of a 5 year house, but I was just too busy to house hunt. There was always something else to do. Lynn and Donna understood this, but they made me get off my duff and get this done! They quietly began bringing properties to my attention and before I knew it I was previewing candidates each week that I never would have noticed otherwise. Now I am in the process of closing on a the perfect home.”
“Lynn & Donna were a pleasure to work with. They made the house hunting process an enjoyable experience- they are fun to work with, extremely knowledgeable about the area, and very hard working. We not only found the house of our dreams… We found two friends as well!”
“Lynn and Donna are a pleasure to work with. They did a first rate job in assessing the market, pricing, and marketing the home I recently sold. They were accommodating, always available, and ultimately brought forward two great offers within days of listing my house. I highly recommend Lynn and Donna and will definably use them again when it comes time to buy or sell another home.”
“In a town filled with many realtors, Lynn and Donna stand out as uniquely responsive, very knowledgeable about local neighborhoods/schools, kind, and helpful in sharing “do’s & don’ts” when buying or selling a house, etc. For those reasons and others, I’ve recommended them strongly to friends/colleagues of mine who want to move in or out of Wellesley or Weston.”
“From Start to finish, Lynn was helpful, knowledgeable and responsive. She made the experience easy and stress-free. I highly recommend the Donahue/Maley Team!”

“I have worked with a number of brokers over the years and have found Lynn and Donna to be the most professional, persistent, knowledgeable, and competent of them all. Their dedication to the client and her specific requirements and concerns is truly amazing, their market understanding and negotiation skills superb, their professionalism and warmth second to none. I recommend Lynn and Donna with no reservations and great enthusiasm!!”
“We first encountered Lynn as we started our search for a new home. Lynn and Donna’s extensive knowledge of the real estate market guided us expertly to our new home. Similarly, their professional advice was unparalleled when it came to selling our old home. Everything went very smoothly, thanks to their expert advice, reliable responsiveness, and calm demeanor throughout the entire process. I highly recommend working with them!”
“My husband and I highly recommend using the Donahue & Maley Team for your home search.
We just purchased a home through Donna & Lynn as our buyer’s agents. The knowledge that Donna and Lynn had about Wellesley and surrounding areas made us feel secure about the potential homes we saw with them. They were always open and honest about neighborhoods and home prices, and provided us with insights on homes that needed a bit of work (we were open to purchasing a fixer-upper). The team went above and beyond when we had questions/concerns about homes and when they couldn’t answer a question, they were proactive in finding someone who could. They even put us in touch with a great contractor who walked through several homes with us that needed work and he gave us an estimate on the work prior to us putting in an offer. Aside from receiving homes through their MLS system, Donna and Lynn would send us homes that fit our criteria directly, which was a huge help. My husband and I were out looking in a tough market, everything in our price range would go within a day or two, and it was very competitive. Donna and Lynn stayed on top of things and got us into homes at our earliest convenience, or would go see homes themselves and provide us with their thoughts. Since they are a team, one of them was always available to talk to us, meet with us, show us homes, etc. We were first time homebuyers and required a lot of time and a lot of viewings of various homes in various neighborhoods, and one of them was always available to help.
My husband and I felt like we weren’t just another sale to them, they were dedicated to making sure we found a home we loved for a price we were happy with, and we did!”
