"Donna was introduced to us by our friend and real estate broker in the Dallas area. We spent an entire day with her going through the neighborhoods of New Braunfels. She was very patient with us and seemed to quickly grasp an understanding of our needs/wants. She is very easy to work with and we enjoyed the process immensely. I would highly recommend Donna for your New Braunfels real estate needs."

She advises clients how to get the very best deal on the best available property. In our case, she has been fantastic at finding the right land and providing her clients with contact info for vetted builders in the area. We can't recommend her highly enough"

When I met Donna, I knew she was a very experienced agent. She intuitively found us our dream house within a matter of weeks. Top notch.

My husband and I were looking for property in the River Chase
Subdivision when we met Donna Baltera.  We had just been out bid on
another piece of property and we were very disappointed.  We told Donna
what we were looking for and that very day she found us the lot.  She
knows her business and operates in the most professional manner.
I recommend Donna to anyone who is looking for a Realtor who will
honestly listen to their wants and needs and then deliver.  She is #1 in
our eyes.

Donna and the folks at Real Estate Haus did a great job for us.  They were thorough, professional, friendly, and responsive.  Best of all, they got results!

"While we are sorry we had to sell our Hill country property, we
appreciate that we had someone like Donna to work with. It made things
much easier. We never worried that it wouldn't get sold.
Should we decide to buy in the Hill Country, at a future date, Donna
will be the first to know..."

Lynda Escalante,

"It was our lucky day when Don and I stopped into your office to inquire
about homes in River Chase. Your knowledge and professionalism made it
clear that we had found the area we liked and the Realtor to help us.
Many thanks for all your help in purchasing our new home, in getting to
learn the area and many thanks for your wonderful gifts of the fire
extinguisher and door mat - both needed! See you in the neighborhood!

Recently, we had the good fortune to meet Donna Baltera, Broker/Owner of
the Real Estate Haus.  We found her to be thoughtful, knowledgeable, on
the ball, and just a delight to work with. Don't hesitate to call her--a
real person will answer the phone!

Donna is an extraordinary realtor. My family made an interstate move and we were very fortunate to be referred to her. We had a very short window of time to find a home and she gave up her weekend to drive us all over New Braunfels, showing us homes and guiding us on a tour of our new community. Not only did she help us find our dream house, but she helped us negotiate a great price.
We spent the better part of two days in and out of the car with her and I have to say, I've never had so much fun looking at houses! She was with us every step of the way and did a wonderful job keeping us informed about what was going on when we were in another state.  She was available when we had questions and guided us through the whole home-buying process.

David & Julie Smith

We can't thank Donna enough for helping us with the sale of our home! From start to finish, you made the process smooth and pleasant. The assistance your team gives is helpful as well; we think your entire team is a great asset to your firm. Who else would have their team hurry to turn our lights on for a showing when we were not close enough to get there in time to do it ourselves! You all work as a team and it shows. The level of service you give your clients is extremely high, it made all the difference. Thank you for your time, commitment and of your heart - we greatly appreciate it!

Donna may not originally be from around here ;) but she certainly knows her Hill Country real estate.  We were referred to Donna by a colleague who recommended that we talk to Donna and we are certainly glad that we did.  

When we contacted Donna and told her that we were coming to the New Braunfels area on a "scouting" mission, and that we may not actually purchase a property in the short term, Donna did not hesitate to assure that she would be glad to show us around.   Donna spent an entire day and a half showing us dozens of properties in a wide area around New Braunfels all the way to Canyon Lake.  It did not take Donna long to hone in to what we were looking for, and as a result we found a wonderful property that we just could not pass up.  We could not have done it without her.

Thank you so much, Donna

My husband and I were referred to Donna from a good friend of ours in Houston.  To say that she  is a professional, knowledgeable, and hard-working real estate broker, would be like telling you that ice is cold.  Everyone knows that - ask around and all will agree that Donna is the best of the best in her field!  But what they may not mention is that she is SO MUCH MORE!  She's creative, intuitive, and has the ability to not only find you your dream home, but make you feel like you're actually "coming home" rather than "moving from home".   I continually wonder how her I- phone doesn't explode due to data overload! She has a list of referrals from mortgage companies and doctors, to beauty salons and boutiques ( we women need that!) to help make your relocation as easy as it could possibly be.  I call her my New Braunfels Yellow Pages.

Donna is a rock star of real estate. She took the time to help us find
the house in the area of New Braunfels that we were looking for, and as
soon as we decided to put an offer in, Donna hit the ground running to
close the deal in our best interests. Donna is a professional and a
pleasure to work with.

Thank you,
Steve & Cris

 I just want to thank you again for all you did to help me sell Mom's house in Gruene. I'm so relieved to be finished with selling it and I couldn't have done it without all your patience and help.

"Was so happy to have spoken with you today and told you that I FINALLY did it and became a real estate agent, all thanks to you.  Joe and I both loved you beyond working with you...it was like hanging out with a hilarious friend every time you came over.  I hope to leave that same impression on the people I interact with in this role.  

Anyway, thank you for the support and encouragement you gave me back then - it stuck with me all these years.

You're the best!

Donna Baltera.  What can I say.  We met through another realtor because he did not have the lots we were searching for.  We wanted something with hills and privacy.  Donna knew exactly what we were looking for.  Fast forward 9 years later and after building our dream home, we decided to sell.  One call to Donna at Real Estate Haus and she was in her car and at the house in the same day!  Talk about service!!!  She had the house listed and sold before we could blink our eyes!   We were amazed with all of the showings she had scheduled.  Donna went above and beyond by helping us get the house prepared to show.  She had professional and drone photos prepared promptly for the listing.  She even had us contact a professional Estate company to help us sell off some of our furniture.  This company proved to be top notch!   If you are looking for a no nonsense, skillful and knowledgeable realtor, Donna is your person!

Knowledge and experience

Donna was on it!!! Great communication. She kept us up to date on the activities of our property. She is very knowledgeable of the area and has a great network of clients. We enjoyed our experience with her and would definitely recommend her to others.

I very strongly recommend Donna Baltera for any and all of your real estate needs. What makes Donna unique and different from all real estate agents and brokers that I have worked with is her integrity, continual optimism, pleasant and down to earth personality, excellent communication, and without a doubt her vast experience and strong social networking; all attributes that provided my wife and I successful outcomes. My wife and I came to Donna and the results were literally immediate. It was so smooth. Her experience, personality, customer orientation, and knowledge of real estate law, practices, market evaluation and pricing, led to our achieving our goals; in a record breaking time. I can go on and on about the excellence that Donna has provided my wife and I. Again, my wife and I strongly recommend Donna for any and all of your real estate needs.

Jose and Marcia Torres --

We have bought two properties from her and she helped us through some tough negotiations even after
Donna has worked very hard to get us a property and it was not easy. It takes someone who knows the area and how to go about it. I urge you to go by and talk to her and get her advice. I stopped by months ago in preparation for our purchase and she was very helpful. She is also helpful in recommending contractors when you need improvements . I definitely recommend her for everything involved in real estate in this area. She works hard for you and has even negotiated on our behalf after closing.I not only call her my agent but also a friend and that is very important to me.

Highly recommended!
Donna was a pleasure to work with, she was very professional and helpful throughout the buying process. Having her assistance made the buying process very quick and easy. I highly recommend Donna to anyone buying or selling a home.

Hard working realtor - Last minute deal!!
Donna is a very good realtor - willing to do whatever it takes to find the right home. She showed me my current home in the morning and wrote the contract and negotiated the deal on the same day!
