Meet The Travis Team
Donna has been finding people homes with Long & Foster New River Valley since 2010, and a Realtor® since 2008.
Based on 2015 sales results, Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc., the largest family-owned residential real estate company in the Unites States, named Donna to the Top 100 Elite Performers list. Known for a strong reputation of building relationships with her clients, Donna’s long-standing sales success has placed her in the top tier of Realtors. In the Fall of 2016, Donna was elected to serve on the Board of Directors for the New River Valley Association of Realtors.
Making people happy is what drives Donna! That’s why she will do her best to help you either sell your home or find the perfect place for you to live. You can rest assured knowing that she will do everything in her power to make this a pleasant experience for you.
John has called the New River Valley home for the past 26 years.
John received his Realtor® license in 2014, and has been closely tied to the housing industry for nearly 16 years. Together, with his wife Donna, they started J and D Builders of the NRV in 2000 and have since built three different residential developments in the New River Valley.
Working as a Class A Contractor and builder gives John a unique perspective to the housing business that has direct application to real estate. Clients consistently praise John’s attention to detail, his tireless work ethic, and above all the integrity he brings to every project as he continues to use those traits as a Realtor®. Whether you are building a home, finding you a home or selling your home, John’s motto remains, “The first thing I build is trust”.
John and Donna have called the New River Valley their home for the past 26 years and have loved the opportunity to make themselves part of the community. They moved here with their family from North Carolina and have no plans to leave! They raised their two children, Andrew and Lauren, in their great family friendly neighborhood in Pulaski. The Travis’ are also very active in their church and appreciate their ability to go on service trips to underprivileged countries.
They both understand the importance of finding the perfect home for their buyers and ensuring the best price for their sellers. Not one to spend time idly, they love the constant changes and challenges that come with any sale. They are always ‘on the clock’ for their clients, working nights and weekends to accommodate their busy lives.
