Testimonials for Donna Cox
As proud as I am of being in the top 1% of all real estate agents in Rockland County, I'm most proud of the relationships I've built and the clients I have been honored to assist.
*I can’t imagine working with a better agent - EVER. I know you do what's right for your clients and in these times of craziness it's nice to feel so comfortable working with you. I know you're our agent but we really feel like you looked out for us like a friend. I only hope we're friends after all the dust settles because you're a good person and such people are few and far between. (E. &S. W. - West Nyack)
*Best. Greatest. Knowledge above all. Pleasant. Interested. Caring. Professional. Never met a lady like Donna Cox. Donna kept us updated all the time. She was lovely to work with and really was concerned about us and selling our home. She marketed our home professionally and kept our needs as her priority. I have sold many properties but have never met a real estate agent like Donna. I wish I had more homes to sell because I will miss working with her. As a disclosure we have no family relationship with Donna, we just love her. Hire her. (B. & N. K. – Montebello, NY)
*As the saying goes "the proof is in the pudding". My Nyack condo sold for full price in less than 2 months. The handling of my account from listing right through to closing was executed with extreme professionalism and courtesy. Donna Cox exemplifies the term "Realtor". Donna picks up on phrases that you mention regarding the property and incorporates them into the description of the property. The care and detail of the photography contributes greatly to how the property is presented to the market. She could give a course on marketing techniques. (A.C. – Upper Nyack)
* After failing to sell my property with another agent we chose Donna based on word of mouth and her proven track record. We were impressed by Donna's systematic approach to marketing our house and her attention to detail. I felt she listened to my needs and that she had an overall plan in getting our house sold. Donna excelled at managing our expectations. She updated us weekly with the number of internet page views and presented our house in the best possible way. When something was not working in the marketing plan she was quick to make adjustments. Many realtors could learn a lesson or two from Donna. She's a true asset! (T.B. – Grandview, NY)
*We interviewed five brokers and chose Donna Cox from Rand Realty. Donna Cox was superior: knowledgeable, candid and a true expert in her field. (A. R. – New City)
*Thank you SO much for taking care of us! Working with you has been the absolute best part of this process -- we just wish everyone had your customer satisfaction skills and commitment to service. We're so happy you came into our paths and that we have had the chance to work with you!! You have been amazing to work with!! (D.D. and M.L. – New City)
*A note to say thank you for all of your great work on the sale of our home. We really appreciated your guidance and support with the sale. You are a marketing genius and worked so hard to find the perfect match with a special buyer who wanted to make our house their home. Thanks for going the distance with us right through the closing. (M.D. and M.F. – Upper Grandview)
*Thanks for all of your great advice, ideas, and follow-up. You are the fourth realtor to try to sell our house but the first to actually do so! It's been a pleasure working with you. We wish you continued success. (R.U. and E.T. – Palisades)
*You really are the “miracle worker” of Realtors! I’m sooo glad we finally hooked up and got it done this time. Thank you!! XOXO (C.M. and J.T. – Upper Grandview)
*Donna Cox was excellent to work with. Extremely professional, very responsive and provided excellent counsel. We truly believe that working with Donna allowed us to achieve the maximum value of our house and she made the entire sales process as easy as possible. (A. & B. L., Tappan)
*You said at the outset that you wanted to change our minds about your profession, seeing as we'd been burned previously. I can't say you succeeded in convincing us about everyone, but you did change our minds about you. We just know that all agents aren't like you and don't necessarily have your ethic. Which is good for you and good for us. On behalf of our whole family I want to thank you so much for everything. (S.F., Upper Nyack)
*Donna, I called you simply because I saw your Sold signs everywhere. I couldn't have anticipated the journey selling my house ended up being and how wonderful it was to have you by my side every step of the way. In my heart I know we never would have closed had it not been for everything you did. You were truly my advocate and demonstrated time and again that you cared about me immensely. A great agent AND a wonderful person - what a combination! (D.S., Piermont)
*Donna Cox is an amazing professional and person. She connects with her clients personally while maintaining the professional goal of completing the transaction. I have been very satisfied using her for several sales/purchases and highly recommend her regularly. (H.H. – Nyack)
*Thank you. You have made our transition to Rockland County and Piermont very seamless. You have our highest recommendation and we look forward to working with you in the future! (J. & P. M., Piermont)
*From the moment you knocked on our door, we felt confident that you could resolve our situation and you did with much professionalism, patience and perseverance. Thank you for not only being our realtor but also for becoming our friend. (D. &G. O, Tappan)
*You came highly recommended and now I can see why. Even my attorney was happy when I told him I was using you. You worked so hard to sell my home and were really efficient, professional and stayed on top of everything. You are also so nice and patient and I appreciate that. (D.H., Piermont)
*You have been an unbelievable agent. We could not have done this without you. (A. &C. Z., Piermont)
*My Dearest Donna, what can I say? From the moment you walked in my door I felt confidence and peace; I knew I had finally found the right agent. What you did to sell my house was nothing short of amazing. I now tell everyone I know - if you're looking to sell or buy a home USE DONNA COX! (F.R., Upper Nyack)
*You knew when to push, when to pull, when to pause, when to encourage and when to lend a shoulder. You are the best. (A. &V. R, New City)
*Thanks again so very much for all your effort. You really showed how much you cared about our situation. I really am thankful. May many blessings come your way for helping us so much! (F.K. Nyack)
*My wife and I had a great experience working with you. You are very professional and knowledgeable and did everything to make us satisfied. On a satisfaction level of 1-5, we give you a 5 and would recommend you to others interested in selling or buying. (D.K., Nanuet)
*Donna worked hard to sell our home. She was very efficient, professional and trustworthy. Her pleasant demeanor pulled us through a stressful time. She is an asset to your company. (Letter to Marsha Rand from H.K., New City)
*From the moment we met you, your intention to help us was absolutely clear. How blessed we are to know you. (J.D., Cornwall-on-Hudson)
*How can I thank you for all your time, patience and expertise...you made our home-buying experience a true pleasure. Thank you for not only being a wonderful Realtor, but for being a kind, generous and warm person. I feel lucky to know you professionally and personally. (J.W., Tappan)

*Thanks for all your hard work and for holding my hand and taking care of me. You really are a queen! (N.B., New City)
*You are a complete professional and a delight to work with. (R.D., Attorney)
*Donna Cox represented me as a broker on the highest professional level possible. Donna often performed above and beyond her responsibilities to help complete my purchase transaction. In addition to her professionalism, Donna was very friendly and accepting of my real estate demands. I would give Donna Cox my highest recommendation to anyone seeking a real estate professional. (R.D. - Nanuet)
*Donna Cox provided us with an excellent experience. It could not have gone more smoothly, especially given market conditions. (E.E. – New City)
*Donna Cox is an extraordinary person and agent. I was awed by her attention to service and details. She worked so hard on my behalf. Her knowledge and insights are invaluable! (F.S. – Nyack)
*Donna made our first home buying experience wonderful! She was so helpful and knowledgeable from beginning to end. We will definitely use her again when it’s time to move. (M.P. – Suffern)

*It was a great pleasure to work with Donna Cox. She gave prompt response to our inquiries and more importantly, she provided valuable professional advice. (X. K. – Nanuet)
*Donna Cox was a wonderful agent to work with. We bought our first home with her and the entire process from beginning to end was smooth. Donna was professional, knowledgeable in all areas, trustworthy and patient. She was caring and connected to the true needs of our move and family. We know that even in our new home we can call her in the future for anything we may need. (K.J. – Nyack)
*Donna is AMAZING. She showed me homes that would be a perfect fit for me. I really appreciated her time and honest input. She made my first house purchase a truly wonderful experience and held my hand through every step. (A.K.- South Nyack)
*Donna was a pleasure to work with during the entire sales process. She worked very hard for us and got us the end result we wanted. It was wonderful working with Donna for all of her excellent qualities. Her professional yet friendly demeanor made it easy doing business with her. We were very impressed with her respectfulness of our opinions and feelings during the sales process. Having a unique home made the sale challenging at times but Donna used her expertise and knowledge to make things go smoothly. If we had used another Realtor we are not sure we would have had the same outcome. We are extremely happy with our experience. (J. & C. C. – Tappan)
*Donna had come by when we were still trying to sell our house as a FSBO and were running our own open house. She was very professional - instead of pressuring us with a hard-sell approach, she just asked if she could look around. By not giving us a hard sell, she communicated respect for our decision to sell ourselves. She wished us well as she left and she was the first person we called when we decided to list. Her reputation in the area was also a big consideration.
(A. & E. – Piermont)
*We first met with Donna Cox because she was the listing agent on a house we found online. The house really jumped out at us and we contacted Donna right away to make an appointment to see it. She listened very well and was able to set up a showing of that house and another on very short notice. We ended up really liking the house and Donna and we ended up working with her to purchase the original home that caught our interest. Donna was great. In addition to being very warm and friendly, Donna was particularly responsive which was very much appreciated. Many thanks to Donna and Rand Realty for making this a smooth process and making us feel at home in our (soon-to-be) new neighborhood.
(J. and W. M. – Piermont)
*Donna went the extra effort for the sale of our family home - dealing professionally with the other brokers and interested buyers. She kept me informed though the whole process with excellent communication and was always pleasant to work with. I highly recommend her!! (M.S. – Valley Cottage)
*I was extremely happy with Donna Cox and I highly recommend her.
(G. F. – Nyack)
*If you are serious about selling your home then Donna Cox is the right agent. As a relocating executive I needed very quick and predictable results. We were in contract within two weeks in an extremely difficult market for sellers. Donna Cox has a strong marketing background and leverages her core knowledge, skills and current market dynamics when marketing homes to sell. My wife (who was a real estate agent for 15 years and has extremely high standards) and I agree that Donna Cox stands far, far above other agents we interviewed. We would highly recommend her to anyone who is serious about buying or selling a home. (R.S. - Stony Point)
*We were very happy with the professionalism and expertise that Donna Cox provided us on the selling of mom's house in Valley Cottage, NY. With Donna's savvy marketing techniques, we were able to sell in a timely fashion and move on with our lives. Through all the back and forth of negotiations, Donna kept us informed and guided our decisions in a caring manner. She is very pleasant to work with and her attention to detail pays off in the end! We would highly recommend Donna and the Rand Realty! (P.P. – Valley Cottage)
*Donna is AMAZING. She showed me homes that would be a perfect fit for me. I really appreciated her time and honest input. She made my first house purchase a truly wonderful experience and held my hand through every step. (A.K. – South Nyack)
*We cannot thank you enough for all the hard work you put into selling our house so timely. What a stress relief! Your marketing strategies, aggressive sales techniques and constant communication got us our desired results. You are definitely our #1 agent and will remain so forever! (R. and S.S. – Stony Point)
*Donna Cox is truly a professional. She is extremely knowledgeable about Nyack and surrounding areas. Donna Cox was always available to us day or night. She responded quickly to all of our concerns and inquiries. She "held our hands" and reassured us through the most difficult times in both buying and selling our home. Donna was supportive, yet never judgmental or pushy.
We cannot say enough good things about Donna. She truly exceeded our expectations. We felt that we had a constant partner in Donna from beginning to end. She is a gem. (K. & K. L. - Nyack)
*Donna Cox was such a great realtor to work with. This was not my first home purchase experience but it was by far my best. Donna clearly understood what I was looking for and was always on top of or ahead of homes to bring me to. I have to say I was probably not the easiest client to work with but Donna stuck it out with my very picky ways until we found THE house for me. If there was a rating higher than excellent, I would rate her as that. (N.C. – Nyack)
*We came to Donna on the recommendation of a well-respected real estate attorney in the area and we’re very happy we did, coming off of several negative experiences using a dual agent. Buying a house is not rocket science, and the difference between one broker and another comes down to proactiveness and communication, in other words, professionalism. That was Donna. She understands that this is a service business and she takes great pride in the service she provides. She kept us informed constantly about the status of our sticky 8-month short sale purchase, which went through some nasty swings, throughout which she was positive but also realistic. We were first-time home buyers and she was always happy to explain the process and the surprising number of players involved. She maintained her professional, pleasant, and constructive demeanor, even when the other side was less than forthcoming. I am sure there were unpleasant conversations with the other side, but she absorbed those and distilled the important points for us, minimizing the drama in an already stressful process. Also important is that Donna is a full-time broker, which means she knows the market and the players well (she made good recommendations for home inspectors and mortgage brokers) and can see the bigger picture. (B.&K. S. – Palisades)
