East Coast Retirement Communities

Known as the “Space Coast” because shuttle launches take place here from Cape Canaveral, this region includes Ormond Beach, Daytona Beach, Port Orange, New Smyrna, Titusville, Melbourne, and Cocoa Beach. This popular retirement community destination is growing rapidly not only because of Northerners retiring there, but also because of people moving up from South Florida, to escape the high home prices and congestion.

See What My Clients Have To Say...

Have used Donna as a buyer and seller agent . Donna is very professional and knowledgeable and always there for her clients . She helped me once while using another agent ( was out of her territory ) too help resolve a problem. I have had over 40 real estate transactions , while some have been good agents , Donna Tripp is by far the best I've ever used .I give her 5* out 5*    Ivan Moore
Donna is a driven realtor.  High attention to detail and the most helpful realtor I have ever met.  She actually came over to help us move.  She got us a sale price that beat my highest expectations.  She kept in constant contact throughout the entire process. We were trying to sale our house ourselves (For sale by owner)

Prior to listing she was the only one who kept in touch (with no pressure) to let us know she was ready when we were.

Go with Donna for a realty experience that is fast, efficient, and seemingly effortless. With impeccable precision and amazing prescience, Donna delivers! My particular situation was filled with the usual family dynamics, full of anxiety and drama. Yet, through it all, Donna kept us all in line with professionalism and a touch of southern hospitality. I was a first-time buyer from New York City and had many questions along the way. Still, Donna answered each of them with ease and skill, and even communicated over text messaging, which I particularly appreciated due to my unusual work schedule. Another note-worthy quality is Donna’s deep knowledge of – and connection to – local community, which served us well, after a big-name lender refused to comply with my initial needs. And, again, Donna delivered. Her advice was clearly rooted in a belief in growing local communities, something that all future – and current – homeowners value. I know I do. Go to Donna Tripp for your realty needs in Central Florida! -- Antonio Antonio from NY
I contacted donna to help me purchase 20  acres on the St. Johns River in Osteen. Due to her real estate knowledge and contacts donna made the transactions seamless with no stress. After I purchased the property, she exceed my expectations by providing me with names and contact numbers of  people I needed to contact in Volusia County. I would feel comfortable in calling her today for assistance if I needed information. She helped us with the feasibility study, survey of 20 acres, delineation study, as it was riverfront property.  All went well. Tom Pentz
