Donna’s Personal Background

Experienced in selling expired listings, luxury homes, foreclosures, short sales with the help of attorney negotiators, investment properties, listing and buying real estate in Minneapolis/ St. Paul and the surrounding suburbs.

A New Jersey native, Donna came to Minneapolis to attend college and never left.  Donna and her husband have two daughters.  She enjoys the many wonderful walking trials, lakes, restaurants, cultural and sporting events Minneapolis has to offer.



“I would highly recommend Donna Quanrud. She sold our property for top dollar due to her knowledge of the market, attention to detail and proactive approach. She was also available to answer our questions with realistic feedback throughout the entire process”


“Donna has been wonderful in every possible way. She truly cared about us and what we wanted, and worked very hard to find us the perfect property. She made the buying experience quick, easy, and even fun. She is truly amazing.”


“Made me feel very comfortable the entire time as a first time home buyer. Kept me well informed of all changes and I would use her again in the future.” – Paul


“Donna was a great Realtor. A good friend recommended her, and I am glad he did. She always had very good communication and quick responses. I would certainly use her as my Realtor again.”

“We have worked with Donna for years. Her expertise, charm, but mostly, her discipline made it a delight! Donna has been there for us in many ways for a long time.”


“Donna is fantastic! She is extremely responsive, reliable and knowledgeable and was able to guide me through the process of both buying and selling. When issues arose, I knew I could count on Donna to resolve them quickly and that she had my best interest in mind. She is a true professional.”


“As a first time home buyer I have been incredibly fortunate to have a realtor like Donna to help me navigate the complex process of buying a home. At every point in the process Donna went above and beyond what was asked of her and did everything in her power to make sure I had a great experience in buying my first home. Whenever I had questions Donna took the time to provide me with clear, intelligent, and thoughtful answers to each of my questions. Donna’s knowledge, skill, and customer service were amazing from start to finish and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.” – Jacob


“We’d hesitated to work with a realtor because our last experience hadn’t gone well. The realtor just did a bunch of open houses and we figured out he was just talking to new potential clients and felt he wasn’t really working much on our property. Additionally, we’d felt a bit mislead as to the reality of what our house was worth. We felt he’d overestimated and then asked us to lower our price.

This past spring we suspected that the housing market was coming around and were thinking about putting our place back on the market. Then we met Donna. She seemed to have realistic information for us and she had some creative suggestions to get our place sold. She has relied more on a vast network she’s built up than on traditional methods like open houses, though she’d be open to doing them. She has the ability to apply different methods and to analyze what is going to work for different people and properties. Donna does a lot of groundwork and always seems to be available. Our place sold in two weeks! The price she gave us as our list was accurate. We were very happy about that. Oh, and very importantly, she brought in a professional photographer so our pictures really popped. I know we personally have misjudged properties on the MLS that have terrible pictures that make the unit look dirty or old. I think that made a huge difference.

Donna also figured out which house we eventually ended up choosing even though we still went through the process of viewing many properties and offering on more than one. Donna seems to have enough knowledge to be able to predict what is going to work for a client. Currently she is working on my parents’ house, giving us advice on how to get it ready for sale. We trust her opinion and have come to rely on her.” – Susan
