Donna became interested in real estate buying, selling and building at an early age. Her parents built, bought and sold multiple homes, and through those experiences gained a foundation from which she continues to build upon today.

Prior to becoming a Realtor, Donna was a Director of Staffing and Headhunter in the Accounting, Finance, Sales, Management and Legal areas for many years. Donna has been a licensed Realtor since 2001. She founded The Pinnacle Group in 2007 and is honored to have such awesome partners with whom to work. Donna holds industry certifications in Relocation, Luxury Home Marketing and Distressed Properties.

Donna prides herself in giving her all to each client from the first-time homebuyer to the executive estate owner. Donna grew up in Northport (Tuscaloosa), AL. She attended the University of AL where she studied Marketing and Communications. Donna married John and relocated to the Birmingham area in the mid 90’s. Except for two short corporate relocations to Louisville, KY and Dayton, OH with John’s company, Birmingham has been their home.

Donna and John have two adopted children, Special Twins, and love to share their story about how they came into their lives. Donna and John are adoption advocates and are involved and support ministries in that arena. Donna and her family are active members of Mountaintop Community Church in Vestavia Hills, AL, where John is on the leadership board.  Donna’s hobbies include painting, reading, biking, weight training, cheering on her kids at sports events and spending time with her family and pets.
