Donna Mercier leads the successful real estate team Foss and Mercier. A family of real estate professionals, they offer their clients a personalized approach and the feel of a small boutique office, backed by the marketing presence of the International brand, Coldwell Banker.

Looking for Your Next Home
Donielle and Donna work with buyers both individually and as a team to find you your next home. They have no one set formula with how they approach or work with a client. They meet you, they listen to your needs and preferences for how you would like to be communicated with, and they customized your search based on your busy schedule and best practices. They will send you listing, pull them for you, text them to you, email them, facebook, tweet ....carrier pigeon... whatever way you work best. While some Realtors prefer to cover either the suburbs or the city, they want to always be your Realtors for all needs. Therefore, they travel to any area you have interest in and advise you on market dynamics, investment potential, area resources and amenities, and every aspect that will contribute to your quality of life in your new home. Whether you are a first-time buyer or experienced investor they are your trusted advisors, valued consultants, and best real estate resource.
