“The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything – they just make the most of everything that comes their way.”

For Donna Pellegrino, ten years in the real estate industry and a significant transaction résumé have produced focused professional and strategic visions. While all facets of real estate sales comprise her day-to-day, Donna has developed a niche clientele of first-time buyers, downsizers, and estate sales in New Haven County.

With contacts that have bloomed from lifelong community participation and volunteering, Donna is a “one stop shop,” offering new and sometimes green buyers helpful connections to trusted home improvement, interior design, mortgage, and insurance professionals. By eliminating rungs on the ladder to homeownership, she eases many of the trepidations associated with such a significant life change.

Donna’s view of real estate as a group experience is novel, telling clients, “We are a team working together” and indicating the flaws of a prospective home just as readily as the attributes. Her reputation of guiding, not pushing, is appreciated by clients, as is her ideology that “At the end of the day, buying a home should be a feel-good thing.”

With the strong social media presence that is required of today’s most productive agents, Donna exposes listings to a vast and relevant audience and also remains current of all real estate trends and homes new to market.

Donna Pellagrino of Calcagni Real Estate was recommended to me by a neighbor who had a positive experience with her. My experience with her was not just positive, it was exceptionally so. The listing price that Donna recommended for the sale of my Cheshire home was supported by many comps and resulted in an offer in less than a week. Her attention to every detail of the transaction process was above and beyond. It included an open house, being present at the buyer’s inspection, admitting and supervising contractors performing repairs identified in the inspection, assisting at the closing and much more. Donna’s communications were always timely and spot on. All of this was much appreciated as the home was unoccupied, and I was living two hours away. If you are looking for a smooth and effortless sale of your home, use Donna Pellagrino!

If I could give Donna Pellegrino 10 stars, I would! Not only was she knowledgeable, with very helpful guidance throughout our home sale- she was also personable and friendly. Donna went above and beyond when we left our home vacant and for sale, and watched over things for us when we couldn’t physically be there. Thank you again for everything. We highly recommend you and the Calcagni team!

Donna Pellegrino was great to work with she helped me sell my house and find a new one. She took the time to carefully explain the contracts, organized numerous open houses and had great suggestions. She went above the normal duties and watched my dog for one showing. She spent more than a year house hunting with me. Thank you Donna!!

“Donna is caring, patient, committed and competent as both a realtor and individual. Throughout my interactions with Donna, I felt she was more concerned with meeting the needs of my expanding family rather than making a sale. This is a rarity based on my previous interactions with realtors before I met Donna. I would strongly recommend Donna and will be utilizing her services in the future if the need arises. Donna is truly a blessing.”

“She took the time to listen and sit by me through a flood of emotions…Donna explained how she can help me and my situation thoroughly and professionally.”

“Your kindness, warmth and cheerful attitude helped make the process a good experience…”

“Working with Donna Pellegrino made buying our first home an easy and enjoyable experience.”

“She is excited and dedicated to getting your house sold. There is not a question I have asked, that she didn’t find the answer to.”

“She was in frequent contact with me on the progress of the sale, always available by phone & promptly returned telephone calls.”

“Thank you to Donna, the most wonderful and personable realtor! We love our home in Cheshire, and you made the process go smoothly. We’ll recommend you to anyone and everyone.” Kristen D. – Buyer
