Dona DeckerBroker Associate

My husband and I moved to Diamondhead, MS in 2006 and both absolutely love it! We love the amenities, the size, the safety and location to the ocean, short commute to New Orleans, Mobile, Biloxi and many other resources. My first Real Estate license was 1979 in Illinois, however; I was an accountant and did not pursue real estate full time until much later in Florida, then transferred my license once we moved to Mississippi. My accounting practice was in Illinois until 1986, at that time we moved to the South and I worked with my husband in his new car dealerships as the accountant until 2004.

Diamondhead is the "Gem on the Coast" and Mississippi Coast is the best kept secret!
Please call, text or email me with any questions or inquiries. I would love to chat with anyone about the location and availability.

    Very professional and knows the area well. Willing to go the extra mile to make sure we saw everything that would be something that we would interested in. She never wasted our time looking at something knowing we would not like. I would not hesitate to use her again.

    Helped me rent a Single Family home in Diamondhead, MS.
    She was amazing! Very helpful and was willing to show houses all day until we found our dream home. She was patient and kind and she actually showed us the home we bought after all the ones we wanted to look at and said she knew we would love this one.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Diamondhead, MS.
    We would highly recommend Dona Decker. It took almost 2 years and a couple of false starts to finally purchase our dream home. Dona stuck with us the whole way. She understood what we were looking for and didn't give up on us. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. Even after our purchase she continues to help us. She has become a valued friend.

    Bought a home in 2015.
    Dona was very helpful in my first home buying experience. She was very knowledgeable about the properties we saw and what I was looking for. She brought my attention to some things I would have never have thought of and gave me hope when I was about to give up. She was also flexible with my work schedule and made accommodations in those regards.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Diamondhead, MS.
    Donna provided great assistance, was creative in solving a couple issues regarding inspection that made the closing process easy and seamless. It was evident that Donna is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. She was very knowledgeable with the area making sure she selected homes to show that met my requirements.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Diamondhead, MS.
    Dona Decker is an amazing lady! She is very patient. Very helpful and she always knows how to make you smile! She helped us pick out our first home. We wanted to look at about 20 different houses, she told us her honest opinion. Then we ended up with the first house that we looked at. I would recommend her to everyone I know!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Slidell, LA.
    Dona has handled several properties for us including a commercial sale. She is a true professional and understands the market in this area very well. She also has insights into both the homeowner's association and its requirements as well as the new city organization. She is always available, returns calls and messages promptly and stays on top of both the listing and the sale. We went through the purchase process without a hitch. The commercial sale was a bit out of her experience, but she achieved our goal and got us what we needed from the sale outcome. Couldn't have done it without her. I will go back to her when next I need any real estate advice or services.

    Bought and sold a home in 2013 in Shoreline Park, Bay Saint Louis, MS 39520.
    I called Dona because of the reviews I found on this site but she was not a perfect match for us. Dona is personable, she was on-time for showings, and showed patience with our many viewings. I believe if you want to buy or sell in Diamondhead she may be helpful but I do not recommend her if you are looking elsewhere.

    Dona sold our house in Bay St Louis and then we bought one in Pass Christian. We also had a rental property listed with her in Diamondhead but took it off the market after we got a renter and where frustrated with interested buyers who where not pre-approved.

    Our first property sold in 8 days for asking price (3 separate offers). I have always wondered if we asked too low but who knows. The buyer was a little difficult to work with and Dona often complained about the other realtor but we never felt like she had our back. The buyer asked for numerous repairs to the house such as "replace a few shingles, change the fence" which we thought where purely cosmetic and not required. There where many other problems but those are just examples. The thing that upset me the most was the buyers realtor and the buyer meet at my house without my consent. I know this because I happened to go home sick that day and was in bed when I heard someone walk in to my house. I panicked at first but realized who it was based on their conversation. I got dressed and walked into my dining room to find them sitting there! Apparently Dona said it was ok but never called me.

    The next property we bought in a different town. I must state we where difficult clients at first because we where undecided about we excatly wanted. Dona showed us numerous homes and allowed us time to figure out what we really liked. However, once we did figure this out we became very specific about our wants. She was not familiar with the school district lines and I asked repeatably for this information, however when we would ask about a house she would say "I think it is in the right district." I finally took some time off during the day and went to the school office. Perhaps my expectations where too high. I was hoping for someone to help us with things like school districts etc. not just show us houses.

    We did finally find a perfect house, she did not help us with negotiating, did not tell us that the termite inspection had come back positive for previous treatment (even though the disclosure did not state this) until closing (the sellers did get/have a contract on house but it would have been nice to know before closing day).
