The Sacramento Region has been my home for many years.  I moved to the Southport area of  West Sacramento  in 2001 and now live in Bridgeway Lakes. While I anxiously await the building of the Yarbrough community and golf course in  West Sacramento,  in the meantime, I enjoy golfing in Sacramento and Davis.

I have nineteen years of experience in real estate and I look forward to helping you with your real estate needs.  I specialize in residential real estate in Davis, West Sacramento, Sacramento, East Sacramento, Land Park, Curtis Park, Greenhaven/Pocket, Sierra Oaks and the greater Arden Arcade area. 

I was appointed to the Sacramento City Planning Commission in the 1990's, a job that I held for eight years.  This experience as a Planning Commissioner helped me understand the housing issues in Sacramento and the zoning and permit issues involved with real estate.

Rita Donahue serves clients in a manner tha is far beyond my previous experiences with other agents. She provides tremendous details, arranges inspections, points out pros and cons of every decision/recommendation, listens to the concerns of clients, and the list goes on. She is quick to understand what the needs and wants are of her clients. She is always responsive to any questions, and is great about reminding clients of what they need to focus on as the sale progresses. I highly recommend Rita Donahue to any seller or buyer.

I'd first worked with Rita Donahue in 2013-2014, when I was considering moving from the Bay Area to Midtown Sacramento. Over time, I changed my mind about living in Midtown and asked to explore other downtown Sacramento neighborhoods and then other neighborhoods in Folsom, Fair Oaks, and along the Hwy 50 Corridor. Through all of those neighborhood/area searches, Rita kept me abreast of all that I wanted to know about neighborhoods, comps, specific home types, etc., and took me on property previews of those that fit my criteria. I put an offer on a property in the Fall of 2014 that fell through, and then I changed my mind about moving out of the Bay Area. I asked her to keep me informed of properties within my search criteria, which she continued to do, and periodically, I'd contact her about a specific one to discuss it further. For these reasons, when I decided to capture the gain in my home in the Bay Area and finally make the move to Folsom/Fair Oaks Area in the Fall of 2017, I, of course, chose to work with Rita Donahue. I can't say enough good things about Rita Donahue's professionalism, knowledge, patience, and attention to detail.

I had started my condo search with Rita and she made is seem like I could really do this thing I never thought I could. When Rita went out of town for a brief period, Ann Parcell jumped in and was so very thorough. Rita came back and finished the deal for me... It all went very quickly and both agents were so informative. I learned a lot and entered into this arrangement with confidence thanks to them. I have already told Rita that she will be the one to help me find another home for my oldest son and I know she will give me the confidence to find a way to do it.

Rita Donahue was very knowledgeable and excelled at communication. She helped achieve a positive outcome to a stressful situation. Rita is an excellent agent and a wonderful person. I would not hesitate to work with her again nor would I hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

We dealt w Rita Donahue when we purchased our residence 4 years ago. We consider her a quality person -- smart, principled, empathetic, conscientious. And an excellent real estate agent. She took great care of us buying our Moorewood Court house and also selling our Concetta Way house. We plan to work w her again when we sell my dad's house. We appreciate her deeply, as a person and a real estate professional, and strongly recommend her to anyone buying or selling property. Rita took care of everything in a very professional, collaborative, timely manner.

Additional Testimonials

Sara and I will be recommending Rita Donahue to all our friends and family who currently or in the future are in need of the very best guidance within the Sacramento area real estate market. Rita did an excellent job understanding our housing needs and was then able to show us only properties that met all of our criteria. She was patient in our home search and made us feel like we were on a journey together—we never felt pressured. After we found the right home and our offer was accepted, her knowledge, work ethic, and communication skills made escrow much easier than we anticipated. She was always available to answer questions and her advice was always excellent. Rita is a true professional. -Greg M. and Sara V., Sacramento, CA (Buyer) January 2017.

Rita personifies the description of a "dedicated real estate professional". She is organized, detail-oriented, thorough, and a supportive task master to keep you on track to meet deadlines. She communicate both effectively and keeps you informed timely on events as they unfold. She is also a supportive listener when you have a meltdown due to the particular crisis of the day. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking professional real estate services. Wendy Russell, former homeowner in Sacramento

I cannot say enough good things about Rita Donahue Realtor! She is very knowledgeable about the market and its history and the areas she represents. Always very thorough and patient, Rita keeps at it until you find the property that's right for you. Lisa

"When it came time to sell my Father's house I knew I wanted Rita to handle another transaction for me. I know many Realtors however Rita is uniquely well-rounded. She recognized the financial, emotional and physical constraints I was under and took the pressure off me. As always Rita was organized and adhered to contract time frames. She remained responsive during a holiday weekend and again while on vacation. Rita recommended both an accurate listing price and realistic marketing strategy resulting in an offer within 5 days. Rita continues to earn my repeat business!"

From day one when you had a professional photographer do the pictures for a web site dedicated to our home, to adding us to the prestige properties portfolio when that came into existence, you always had helpful ideas. Whenever I needed info or updates, you promptly responded to my calls, e-mails and texts. When it seemed like no one understood my side of the situation, you had my back. When the other agent would not return communications, you somehow kept things moving.
