Tell Us Your Story

Don helped me understand all the processes happening with selling my house.

Good thing he has a good sense of humor as I can be a tad flighty to work with. He also assisted me with questions I had about the house I was buying out of state. I would certainly ask for his help again should the need arise. (review courtesy of


Dan has been an incredible realtor.

He put forth the extra effort to ensure that we were getting the best deal possible. We sold a home with his help and decided to have him with a purchase soon after. He always communicated with us and was always easy to get ahold of with questions. I would recommend Dan to any potential clients.

Jeff Warrick

Donna was obviously an expert in her field, very confident and resourceful.

She spent a weekend showing us many different homes when we came in from out of town, and then after we bought, she went above her duty to help us with all the details of having the landscaping planned and put in before we moved to Utah, so that we'd have a complete yard when we moved in to our new home. We were so grateful for her help in that! She's also just fun and a very pleasant person to work with. She's very occupied because of how many people want her services (a good sign). She's a busy woman! But still was so helpful!


Donna and Skylar were so incredibly helpful and knowledgeable.

They have great relationships that helped our process run smooth and timely. We just closed on our home and are currently working on an investment property with them.


We bought our home late last year with Dan and it was an absolute blast finding the right place and looking at a bunch of homes.

He was never too preoccupied or busy to help us with questions or show us the homes that we wanted to see. He is a great listener and gives great advice for those people, like me, who don't really know what they are doing as far as real estate goes. I have recommended him to all of my friends and family because I know that they would be in good hands with Dan. We found exactly what we wanted and with the somewhat complicated buying process we chose, he still remained positive and pushed the process along to get things done as soon as possible. Not once did we feel like he had anything else in mind besides our best interest and satisfaction. The next time I sell and buy, there is only one person who I would call to help me and that's Dan.

Jasmin Fejzic

I found Donna online while searching for a home in St.

George and I must say it was like finding a diamond! Donna and her agents spent the time needed with me to find the perfect home, but that was only the start! Donna’s ability to see the purchase through to the end and take care of all the issues that can pop up during a purchase was terrific. Such a nice and personable lady to work with. ANY need for a realtor in th St. George area please give Donna a call. You will be impressed!


Dan is amazing.

He helped us look for a house for quite some time (as I am hard to please). He never gave up and in the end we were able to find an amazing house that was in my price range. He is very professional, helpful, and he is willing to work hard for you. He also came by after we moved in to see how the house was working and how we liked it. He is a great person to work with. I would recommend him (and I have) to any and all of my family, friends, and associates.

Trishia Mae Van Orden

Donna is a friendly, energetic realtor who goes out of her way to put her clients first.

She is knowledgable and enthusiastic and has a gift for understanding the needs of her clients. I would (and have!) recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. Donna is willing ot go the extra mile to ensure her clients are happy and that all their needs are met.


"Don was professional and easy to work with.

He was able to negotiate a great deal for my new home in a crazy buyers market. He was quick to respond with questions and worked with my schedule."

amc jennifer

Donna is awesome, she made house buying experience easy!

I wouldn't use anyone else. She was professional and very involved. She helped above and beyond what was expected and we appreciated all the extra time and effort she put into helping us.


Donna was awesome in helping us find and purchase our new home in St George, UT.

She was very responsive to our needs and timelines. She even helped us get moved in! I highly recommend Donna. She is a dedicated Realtor and really knows the area!


We greatly appreciated the expertise and enthusiasm Donna Smith and Ashley Newby provided us throughout the listing of our home.

Donna and Ashley are professional and knowledgeable. Ashley was always available to answer questions or minor concerns by text or phone. We had an excellent outcome selling our home and recommend the Donna Smith Team for your real estate endeavors.


Donna gave us consistently correct and helpful information, guiding us away from expensive blunders and towards a neighborhood that we greatly enjoy.

She kept in touch with timely reminders. Overall, she made our experience pleasant and positive.


Donna was not a good agent for us.

We bought a home in St George - she seemed to represent the seller more than us. She offered zero help on negotiating a favorable price for us. She offered no advice on whether a price for a home she considered a good or high price. She did not seem to work many hours, at least not for us. She was very unresponsive to text messages or email messages sent to her. Many times I would ask her to acknowledge messages I sent to her to get her to respond in a timely manner.


Dan helped us find our dream home.

He listened to what we wanted down to the very detail and found us a home that was way better than we could of imagined. He worked hard for us and negotiated hard on our behalf. I recommend Dan to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. He'll listen to you and help you accomplish your goals, and maybe a little more!

Joe McCrillis

THE BEST We've dealt with Donna for a long time.

She is very efficient and knowledgeable Keeps you informed Helps you when you don't understand something Provides a good experience when buying or selling real estate


"I had the pleasure of knowing Don for over a decade.

As a service member back in 2005 I was transferring to Hill AFB and Don was the agent to help me find my perfect Layton home. In 2009 I left Utah, but really didn't know what I wanted to do with the house; so I rented it out. Low and behold 2018 and I felt it was the best time to sell and guess who I contacted to sell the vary house I bought so many years ago. Yep Don Patton! Over the years away from Utah Don kept in contact with me by providing yearly anniversary e-mails and letting me know the worth of the house. Don helped me buy and sell both times professional to the extreme. Thank Don!!"

Matt R

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Don as a first time buyer and I was thoroughly impressed by his work.

He was very helpful in understanding the entire process from beginning to end and provided excellent advice when asked. Every inquiry quickly received a response. He knew what I should expect from the local market and gave useful suggestions when it came time to negotiate. Overall, I was highly impressed with my experience and would readily engage his services again if I were moving in the local area." (review courtesy of

JD Parsley

Donna and her team provided professional photographers and video to help make our listing look incredible.

She was willing to walk through our home and listen to us in regards to the details of our home and neighborhood. She also helped us to provide the best listing price in which both buyer and us, as the seller, were both happy. She worked hard at promoting our home on many sites as well as having realtors walk through during their monthly tours. We had many people look at our home and she always gave us feedback. We loved her caring yet vibrant personality and her willingness to do whatever it took to complete the sell. We would use her again in a heartbeat!


"I had an amazing experience working with Don.

He worked hard to find a home we love in a neighborhood we love! He made sure to stay within our budget and worked with the hours that we could work with. He was willing to help us understand all the real estate jargon that was foreign."

Kylie Urry

Dan helped us sell a condo that we were renting out.

He sold it really quick and always kept us updated with feedback from people that came and looked at it. We have referred him to friends and family that we know, because he is very friendly, is looking to help out his clients and never makes you feel pressured. We will definitely use him again.

Sheryl Branch

My favorite thing about Don is that I never feel like he's trying to sell me something.

He's just interested in helping my family find a house we'll be happy with. He was quick to point out any negative features a home had to be sure we knew what we were getting into. He also sold our home to the first person to come and look at it, so that's pretty impressive too. (review courtesy of


Awesome realtor.

Found us the perfect house. Will definitely use again.

Jenna Egbert

Donna found me a property that my wife and I liked in the first day looking with her.

During what turned out to be a long dealing with the underwriter on my sale, Donna was very help full in all aspects of the process. She kept me informed as to where we were in the loan process, as well as staying in close contact with the local lender. It was a pleasure working with Donna, and I would send anyone that I know to her for her help in finding a home.


I used Don to help sell an inherited home, and he was the best real estate agent I ever used.

He knows his market, and he helped us establish the best asking price for the home. Almost as soon as the home was listed, potential buyers started to come. We actually had multiple offers, and Don helped to sort out the pros and cons of each offer. I live on the east coast, so when the home needed a repair before it could close, Don, at my request, saw to it that the work was done. I found Don to be a very knowledgeable, proactive agent. I believe that he an agent that can help sellers get the best price for their home. (review courtesy of

Valerieann Cox

Hard worker, always takes the time to care for individual needs, great sense of humor.

Ethan Olsen

Excellent listener, clearly cares about the desires and best interest of those whom he interacts with, and very quick witted.

Marianne Ol

What a pleasant surprise to have an honest and positive person help us find our dream home.

She quickly figured out what type of property we desired and helped us with our purchase. Moving from a different state has challenges and Donna also helped us navigate some difficulties we were experiencing out of state. Donna is a wonderful person and gets the job done right.


Donna has been helping us finding a home where we started from scratch.

She helped us narrowing down the options to the area that was really what we were looking for. She was always prepared with a list of options to show. She also was available to lead us through the whole process and still is available to answer any questions after the purchase. I highly recommend her to anyone; be it buyer or seller.


Donna was a pleasure to work with.

She was responsive to our needs and always responded in a timely manner to our questions. I would recommend her as an agent.


It was great.

She did what she said she was going to do. Even under the duress of of clients not following through. She was positive and held up her end of the sales process. It was a good experience working with her

mikeannene hogge3

Our experience with Dan could not have been better, even though we were pretty hard to please.

Dan was very patient with me and my demands and very encouraging when the whole thing seemed hopeless. I highly recommend him. I actually can't imagine using anyone else.

Annette Davies Olsen

Dan worked so hard for us, we saw so many houses together.

We eventually found a house that wasn't even on the market and he made it work. We've already referred several people to Dan because of our experience with him.

Garrett Hafen

"Don did an excellent job for us in the process of buying a house here in Utah.

This was a long distance job for him as we lived in Salem Or. doing this process. We did make several trips to Utah for in person contact with Don, and on the house we bought. He was a good guide through the whole process, and could always answer our questions and kept us informed by phone and e-mail as to everything going on. He worked with our daughter Cindy doing this process. We would highly recommend him to any one. Jim & Claudia K.

Jim K

Donna and Ashley went above and beyond in their professional service and commitment to ensure that my home purchase was enjoyable and successful in the end!

It's nice to make & have new good friends that you are doing business with, while you are just in the process of purchasing a new home!


After dealing with some poor realtors, Don came to save the day.

On our first outing he was quick to point out some key indicators to future house problems. He saved us from stepping into some real money pits. He quickly picked up on what we were after and worked hard to find us a suitable house. (11 months and 125 houses in all) His determination and patience was unwavering as we went through numerous offers. He was able to help us work through a grossly negligent 3rd party bank. And while it took 9 months to finally get the house from the bank, he was able to get us in at an awesome price with some additional bank funded repairs. Don is an honest, thorough, experienced realtor with real determination. I often refer him to my friends, knowing they are in good hands. (review courtesy of


Donna was very fun to work with and did a great job.

I will use her again in the future. She gave a great perspective to home selling in my area. I recommend her.

Steve Larsen

Donna did a fantastic job looking for us properties to buy in the St.

George area. She is the hardest working realtor! I loved working with her. She gave me a lot of information that helped me select the right properties. I trusted her so much that I let her choose the properties and I have yet to view them. I know they will be exactly what I want. Thanks for all your efforts. Cheri Johnson


Donna and her team really know how to take care of their clients.

We have used her twice and she always makes things happen for us! She gave us excellent advice about taking backup offers and the strategy really worked for us.

Rick Parker

Donna and her team responded to every question and issue with the speed, completeness and professionalism a first time buyer requires.

They made the entire process as smooth and “painless” as humanly possible.


Five stars do not convey the true character, professionalism, and dedication Donna provided us.

Her positive attitude and willingness to understand our needs helped us find and purchase our dream home. Ten stars and two enthusiastic thumbs up!!!

bill french3

Donna has a wealth of local knowledge.

She knows the market and will ensure that you get top dollar for your home. Most importantly, Donna makes sure you are in charge of your home buying or selling experience. She gives important advice and then let's you make the decision. She is a tireless worker who always has her client's interests in mind. I can while heartedly recommend Donna when buying or selling real estate in Southern Utah.


Dan was the most patient and kind realtor we have met.

We have not yet purchased a home due to our own financial issues and other unseen personal circumstances, however we ran into him while shopping and chit chatted for a bit. We suggest him to everyone we know who is looking for a place, and plan to call him once we are ready again to start looking.

Kyla Bella VictoriaKiwi Bachman

Dan helped us to sell our first home as well as buy our new home.

He made sure to negotiate for more amenities in our new build and worked hard when things were moving slower than expected. He is positive and willing to work hard to get you the home you're looking for.

Tasha Olsen

Dan made home buying a much easier and less stressful experience.

He genuinely cares about finding you the right home. We felt listened to and taken care of while working with Dan, and he was very easy to work with. He was easy to coordinate schedules with and never made us feel rushed. I always highly recommend him to any family or friends that are looking to buy or sell!

Anna Hafen

Donna was an excellent realtor.

She took the time to meet with us and to answer our questions thoroughly. Her positive attitude and willingness to assist was vital when it came time to negotiate with the other party. If one is looking for a home in the Southern Utah area, I would recommend getting in touch with her.

matt bunke

Dan was very patient with me while looking for houses.

I'm very picky and was looking for my dream home. When I finally found my house, he was there helping me through the building process. It took a year from start to finish and

Jen Geier

Dan helped us sell our condo and buy our home within 3 months of listing it.

He was very easy to work with and friendly. Definently has the customers best interest in mind. We would definently go through him again or refer him to anyone. Great all around guy. Never made us feel pressured. We were picky clients too.

Michelle Ruesch

We could not have asked for a better professional to help us find our new home.

We were new to the area. Home prices seemed to be all over the place. We didn't know what neighborhood we wanted. Don was so patient. He took us out time after time. I bet we looked at 90 homes, he never rushed us or became discouraged. When we finally found what we wanted he walked us through the negation, financing and closing. We will definitely call on him again if we ever move and I would highly recommend him to friends and family. (review courtesy of

sherry packer

I would recommend Donna to anyone that is buying or selling a house.

Donna is on top of the St George market she can find the right piece of real estate for you. She is very responsive to your questions and is patient and helpful. A delight to work with.


It was our first time buying a home so we had no idea what we were doing.

Dan answered all my questions and never made me feel dumb for asking. There were a few times he didn't have answers, so he did research and always got back to me quickly (never left me with the dirty work). He was a delight to work with (I even recommended him to my parents, who also had a great experience!). I cannot recommend Dan enough.

Erin Dickamore

If I come back into town, Donna will be the first person I call to find me a home.

She was willing to go with the low ball offer when I bought the house after showing me homes in the area based on fitting the area to my personality, and was able to sell the home at a higher price then the current low cut market, quickly when it was time. A perfect fit!


"Hi to everyone looking to buy a home.

Don Patton was our realtor and we just closed on our first home, he was great to work with. Don took us to see every property we asked about with no problem. He sent updates in my email every day. We looked at everything trying to decide what we wanted an that was fine with Don he's very patient but he listened an seen the things we were looking for. Well, it was Don that found the house we have, he heard of the house an knew it was just what we were looking for an so here we are with the perfect house. Yes, I would recommend Don Patton to help with all your realty needs. Excellent job....." (review courtesy of

Linda Easley

Dan does a great job of representing his clients, delivering outstanding customer service by great terms, smooth transactions and sound advice.

He is very knowledgeable about the area and was/is very helpful with any questions we need answered. Thank you Dan and we will recommend you to friends and family that are thinking of buying or selling.

Diane Brown

I have worked with dozens of Realtors over the past 40 years and Donna Smith is one of the best, if not the best.

She is honest, thorough, knowledgeable, resourceful, and creative. My transaction was very difficult, but she came up with a great solution for every problem. Highly recommended!


Donna was very helpful in helping us buy our dream house in southern Utah.

Even though she is based some distance away, she had extensive knowledge of the area in which we purchased our home. She was very helpful in all aspects of the transaction and continued to be helpful after the sale was completed, often going beyond the call of duty to help us get settled in our new home.

david goldgar

Donna was very professional and helpful in helping us find a home.

Her team kept us updated and presented available listings continually. She guided us to find the perfect home for us. We are very satisfied with her work and would recommend her to anyone looking for a home. In my book we received 5 Star service. Thanks to Donna and her team, they are Awesome.


Donna Smith is the kind of agent you want to have when you want to sell your home.

She was honest with her opinion's, give quality advice. She has vast knowledge of her area of work. She is pleasant to work with and has the highest integrity. Her expert advice got our home sold in record time without any problems.

Sherry Olson

Don helped me understand all the processes happening with selling my house.

Good thing he has a good sense of humor as I can be a tad flighty to work with. He also assisted me with questions I had about the house I was buying out of state. I would certainly ask for his help again should the need arise. (review courtesy of


Donna was great to deal with!

Fast, professional and did everything with integrity. We were able to get my home deal done much faster than I thought we would. I recomend Donna 100%!


Donna Smith gets the job done we wouldn't use anyone else.

She did way more than she had to. Help with the pool, landscaping and did an awesome job in the selling of our home. She made everything quick and easy. Donna is your gal for your Real estate needs!!


We were coming from a completely different area, and not knowing where we should even look first, Donna Smith just started driving and teaching.

She didn't have an idea of what we wanted because we were morphing in what we wanted along the way. She was so pleasant and taught us about the positives and negatives of going to retirement communities vs. finding a home with amenities in a normal family neighborhood. She taught us about the different areas of the county and what each had to offer, even to the dollar amount of one electric company vs. another....this process was long and included many all day trips to become educated. When we finally had a plan, she helped us focus on those things we wanted most. And without her generosity and deal making....we wouldn't have our home! And, she'll be our friend for life! Couldn't recommend anyone more than Donna and her team! Thanks Donna!


My wife and I live in Florida and, with Donna’s help, recently purchased a lot in Springdale.

She went above and beyond in helping us to complete our due diligence from far away. We never felt pressured to make a decision before we were totally comfortable with the purchase. Donna and her staff were always friendly, helpful and professional. We would highly recommend her to anyone interested in relocating to Southern Utah. Two Thumbs Up for Donna!


We've used Donna at least 4 times - once in West Valley, the rest in Southern Utah.

Donna is wonderful to work with, and very accessible. Any time I've had a question, I just text her. If she's busy, she'll always send a brief reply just to let me know what's going on and when I can expect to hear back from her. Whenever we've come across any sort of challenge, Donna does whatever it takes to get the issue resolved quickly, or she will find out who can help. She's very friendly and easy to work with, and she seems to literally know everyone in Southern Utah. Part of her email address is "The Get it Done Gal", and she really does! I highly recommend Donna!

user2218225 - Zillow Seller & Buyer

We made contact with Donna Smith of RE/MAX First Realty and, from the on-set, her sincere, warm and friendly manner made us comfortable and at ease.

Then, with her knowledge of the St. George area and the available properties in our price-range, we were able to 'zero-in' on the right-fit home for us. Plus her genuine interest in our needs, and her pleasant manner towards both the seller and us, made the transaction an enjoyable experience!!

don gneiding

We had a great experience with Dan as our realtor.

He is a great help and knows his stuff. He made selling our home very easy!

Bryce Dahl

We had a great experience with Dan!

He's very attentive to detail and keeping us informed. We will use him again next time we buy a house.

Adam Dahl

Donna did a great job for us as she knew the market, set up visits well, was organized, and very patient with our process that took several trips over a two year period to find the perfect place for our needs.

...She is great to work with, and deserves our best rating! Thanks Donna, Rod & Di


Donna was wonderful, professional, competent and very responsive to our needs and requests.

I would not hesitate recommending her to anyone. She knew we had a time constraint and worked hard to show us as any houses as we could fit in.


As a Real Estate Broker in two states, I have worked with many Real Estate Agents.

I can assure you, Don Patton is one of the BEST! He helped us buy and sell our home in Utah! I highly recommend Don Patton! Christine A. Roppel (review courtesy of

Christine A. Roppel

From start to finish we had a great experience with Donna and her team.

She was very helpful with recommendations on getting the home ready to list. We trusted her market knowledge and felt great about the price she recommended. She obtained feedback from other agents that showed the home and had it under contract with a full price offer in five days! There were difficult contract negotiations that came up and she did a great job protecting our equity in order to put the most money in our pocket!


Dan made our transition from New York to Utah as easy and painless as possible.

Highly recommend Dan for all your realtor needs

Josh Price

Donna was readily available to us with home sale questions, provided the materials we requested, was proactive in getting our home sold and was able to sell the home fairly quickly.

She had another buyer lined up right after our first deal fell through. Previous realtors never even brought someone to the house let alone get an offer.


"Don was very helpful and listened to what we were looking for.

Showed us a good variety of potential properties. Also he worked with our schedule. He was very good at finding us answers about our future home as well as the buying process."

Jared H

I have done multiple deals with Donna and she has been a joy to work with.

Donna has been very professional, honest, and straight forward at all times. I would recommend Donna to anyone needing the assistance of a Realtor.


Fantastic overall experience.

We were looking for a very specific investment property. Donna knew the area very well, and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Would recommend to anyone.


Donna was great in helping us find our dream home.

She understood our priorities and was diligent in the search. She was always reachable and expert in getting things done. Donna gives 100 percent to her customers. Being new to this area, she really helped us navigate the various towns. She was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend her!!


As first time home buyers we had LOTS of question for Dan.

He was always available to answer our questions. We also had a deadline to find a house (new baby was on the way!) we got into our house earlier than expected and were able to avoid paying an extra month of rent. We'll always appreciate his patience and diligence to help us find a house that we love. Thank you, Dan!

Amy Shoell Rasmussen

Don is a great Realtor.

He helped me buy my house and who I have referred many friends and family. Don is truly an advocate for the people he helps. He isn't just an agent but an extension of me and I couldn't ask for more. (review courtesy of


Kassie and I enjoyed working with you very much.

We were grateful how quickly you acted in meeting with us to view homes before someone else bought them. Kassi and I were also very appreciative in the extra services you provided to us in addition to just finding a home. Some of these services include: educating us on the entire purchase process of a home, introducing us to Guy Hassell and helping us with the financial aspect of purchasing a home, and also pointing out flaws with properties that we may have been ignorant to. Thank you so much Don for all your great help. I still have your number and refer you often to people as a realtor.

Norm M

Dan is an amazing realtor.

He helped me sell my home and was there supporting me during my new home build and closing process. He always followed up to ensure I did not have any issues and wanted to ensure I was always happy with any selling, buying and builder processes. Highly recommended :)

Tonya Dee Jarrett

This lady is incredible.

Donna helped us find our first house and held our hand through the process making what others called "overwhelming" an exciting time of our lives. She helped us move furniture that the sellers had left there with her own vehicle just so we wouldn't have to worry about it. She's funny and classy. She will put up a legitimate fight for you. She found someone to help us paint our house when we already had moved across the country and sold it immediately thereafter. Without a single doubt, Donna Smith is your number one choice when buying or selling. I'd recommend her to anyone.


We had a great experience with Dan as our realtor.

He is a great help and knows his stuff. He made selling our home very easy!

Bryce Dahl

She was on vacation yet got right on our request and Ashley Newby followed up with us.

She was great and knew her business, so we highly recommend this team!


Dan is great!

It was such a pleasant experience to have his help selling our house. He made himself available any time we had questions or concerns. He went above and beyond with each potential buyer. He always followed up and explored every avenue to make sure we had the best possible outcome. At this point, I would never use the real estate services of anyone else. Dan has proven himself to be the best!

Kenny Achter

We really enjoyed working with Donna.

She listened to what we wanted and helped us find exactly what we were looking for. She also helped us through what could have been a difficult process.


Donna is full of positive energy and very happy!

It is clear that she loves her job. This made a very stressfull situation of looking for a home much more enjoyable. Our family looked forward to seeing Donna every night, weekend, and free moment to look for a house. Donna was also great to keep in close contact with our selling agent in Northern Utah making the whole process run very smooth! We now consider Donna a part of our Family!



I refuse to work with anyone else in the future! This guy made sure I got what I wanted and needed without even having to ask him twice! I was working with another guy before I bought my house with Dan's help last year. Same company and the other guy was absolutely horrible. I felt like I had to BEG him to help me. Dan on the contrary was ALWAYS available no matter what time I contact him and always made sure I got an answer to my questions. He never once pushed me to get something more expensive to make a bigger sale, which is highly appreciated. I had even ran into a problem with the financial side of it and it was absolutely ridiculous. Dan didn't let that slow us down and got me in contact with someone better to assist me. Bottom line- I got the house I wanted. And it was ALL thanks to Dan! He truly cares about his customers and makes sure we all know he cares and will help in any and every way possible. I recommend him to EVERYONE that says they need help buying a house. There simply isn't anyone better than Dan!

Cinthia Calderon

Dan is the best


4 years ago I contacted Don to help me buy my first home.

He was wonderful from start to finish! He was honest, understanding, extremely helpful, and made my home buying experience wonderful! It doesn't get better than Don! (review courtesy of


Donna is awesome.

Her team will definitely go the extra mile to sell your house. She helped us sell our house quickly and for the price we wanted. Our experience with her was nothing but positive!


Don helped me to buy my home in an incredibly daunting seller’s market; he has the patience of a saint.

Given how stressful it was, if I had to do it again I’m not sure that I would. I was glad to have Don helping me through the 18 month long process. He’s a personable, competent, confident guy, who’s exceptionally professional in every direction yet we felt like we were hanging out with our good friend whenever I had a meeting with him Don always followed through with his promises and was always willing to go out of his way to show us a house. While most of the single family homes in my price range were older and most had major problems, Don’s expertise and background greatly helped in making my decision. He clearly understood my budget and boundaries and helped to find a nice home in a nice location. Don explained the home buying process in a crystal clear manor, he made sure I was informed and allowed me to make my own educated decision every step of the way. During the offer process Don kept everything organized, from inspections, appraisal to closing. If you want someone that is not intimidating, not a rich snob, but someone that will value you as a home buyer, then Don is your guy! (review courtesy of

Joseph LaRue

Donna is a fantastic agent who is on top of details.

She is punctual and courteous, and we enjoyed working with her very much. She was patient with our house-hunting process and helped get us in a home we love. She gave us great advice through the whole experience. Thanks Donna!


We had a great experience with Dan.

I felt that he knew what he was talking about and really worked hard to get us into a house that we love. I would recommend anyone looking to buy a home to work with Dan!

Darci Davis

If you are looking for a great agent Donna is the one!

So honest and does not make you feel pressured in anyway, very happy to have linked up with her for our home buying process. We would recommend her any day!

Kassy Stuart

She both sold us the home, then 5 years later sold it for me when my husband died.

She's professional, helpful & friendly. Obviously I recommend her Donna both sold us the home, then five years later sold it for me when my husband died. Obviously I would recommend her. Bonnie James


Donna was very friendly, personable, and informative.

She was always on top of every issue which arose and quickly handled all situations in a professional manner. Donna is exceptional as a realtor. I never worried how things were progressing because she was always there for me, taking care of all my home buying needs, questions and concerns.

Very easy to work with and she knows the real estate market inside and out and if she doesn't have an answer she will find it out for you.

She also has very good people skills.Very impressed.Thank you Donna Smith for all that you did for us.


I'm so glad that we found Dan to help us find our home!

We are very picky and specific and he had so much patience and tried to diligently pinpoint our perfect home all while making it an enjoyable experience! Let's be honest, after seeing countless homes it gets to feel more like a chore, but Dan has a way of making it fun with laughs, and just making you feel like you're family. Even after we closed, he still, 2 years later, tries to reach out or stop by just to see how we are doing every so often. I wouldn't ever want to go to another realtor again! Thanks Dan!

Donna accomplished our home purchase & paperwork in a timely manner and was able to answer all pertinent questions to my satisfaction Helping get thru all paper work - problems - Inspections - & title - deed recordings


Dan is a wonderful guy, he helped us sell our condo and helped us buy our home that we absolutely love.

I feel bad we were so picky, we gave him so many must haves that I'm surprised he actually pulled it off in finding us the perfect home. We loved Dan's work ethic so much that we have referred him to other people including my parents, which he has sold my dad's home in Syracuse and my mom's home in Magna. If we ever move again, 100% we will ask Dan to help us.

The only reason we have our home is because we used Don Patton as our Realtor.

He had a good relationship with the seller's agent and they had multiple offers on the table and they came with us because Don Patton was our agent. He handles himself very professionally and has great knowledge of his market. I would highly recommend him to anyone. (review courtesy of

Dan helped us find our dream home.

It took over a year and he was patient and helpful the entire time. He never seemed too busy for us. We felt he truly cared about us and our happiness. Dan has stayed a true friend even after our purchase. He has continued to check on us and make sure we are happy. Dan is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with. We have been recommending him to all of our friends!

I've had the pleasure of buying a house with Don twice, as well as having Don sell our previous home.

In every case, Don was an excellent realtor. He was extremely attentive to our needs, offered objective, professional advice and was extremely accommodating. I've recommended several friends to Don, who have also had success in finding great homes. I continue to be impressed by Don. We are happy in our current home, but if our real estate situation should ever change, I'd work with Don again in a heart beat. A true credit to his field and a wonderful resource.

"I bought my first home in the spring of 2020 and chose Don as a realtor.

I interviewed a few and Don had the most knowledge of any of them. Don knows the Ogden and surrounding areas extremely well and can provide excellent guidance to any person not familiar with the area. I never had problem with Don responding to any of my texts, emails or phone calls. I don't think I could recommend him enough."

I am a widow and this being my first home to buy on my own and not knowing how to start looking in a new place and new state, I was uncertain how to begin.

From the moment I met Donna Smith, she made the searching experience stress-less. She showed me different areas with homes to see and led me to a beautiful area where she introduced me to a contractor who was building homes in the area. Donna showed me a home that the contractor just completed. It was a beautiful home and so I bought one of the lots and had the contractor built me a home. Donna helped me throughout the building process and kept me informed on how my home was progressing. Since I lived in another state while the house was being built, it was a great comfort to have her report on how my home was coming along. When my home was completed, she helped me in the steps I needed to do with the purchasing of my home. She has always been friendly and patient with me through this experience, I consider her a good friend.


Donna really worked to find me the house that fit my budget and had all of the elements I was looking for.

She had great knowledge of the area and what was available for comparison. Once we found a house that I truly wanted she helped me with negotiations to get the best value for me. Donna was amazing and I will use her for any and all of my real estate needs.


Dan went above and beyond for us when we bought our house.

I highly recommend him. He's trustworthy, personable, professional and just a great guy. He answered all of our questions (and we had a lot as first time buyers) and made our experience a great one. We will definitely use him again!
