Don Maclary is no stranger to the world of real estate. His clients, scattered far and wide are devotees of Don and his out-of-the box personality. “Box? What box? I have no box!” with a grin – such is the demeanor that has most certainly played a large part in his remarkable success and stellar reputation as a Realtor.
Don started in the real estate business by rehabbing houses many years ago when he was a single father raising two children in Savannah Georgia. Don was then and most definitely is now, a take-charge, do your very best and do whatever it takes individual. With a strong, ethical, upstanding character and sense of humor mixed in, Don has built a superlative reputation in the real estate industry. Never shying away from the “thorny issues” that have a way of occurring in real estate. He clearly has a gift for reading people and reading situations – Don’s mastery of the “I don’t have a box!” thinking and his ability to create lifelong relationships with people, connections to specialists associated fields has saved his clients stress and saved the day on countless occasions.
In beautiful Savannah is where he became a lover of good food. While there coincidentally he happened to befriend a well-known restauranteur Paula Dean at the time (does Food Network Star ring a bell?). Don has also been a successful business owner – from the early years, Don has rolled up his sleeves and eagerly absorbed knowledge garnered in prior professions. He is generous in sharing his breadth of knowledge of real estate to benefit his clients and the Choose A Home Team which he leads. A master of negotiation - Today, he brings his talents to each deal and is known for going well beyond the industry expectations to help his clients before, during and even well after the transaction closes! “It’s about relationships” not just the transaction.
Not surprisingly, Don heads the elite Choose A Home Team of Howard Hanna William E. Wood. Team members are superlative representatives of the real estate profession, of whom he selected to join his team and mirror his doctrine for exceptional customer service. Don’s leadership, genuineness, ethics and passion for the business fuels the success of the associates on his team. Individuals and families have been won over time and again by extraordinary, award-winning service and both freely and willing refer business back. A fine example is one of Don’s most ardent clients (and now close friend) who he smilingly refers to as the “Monopoly lady” – easy to understand the endearing term since she buys and sells homes through Don as if she is playing monopoly using the houses as game pieces – this “Monopoly lady” has used him for at least 19 transactions!...and still counting!!
From the starter homes of the first time home buyers to the mega spreads of the high-dollar clientele, one thing remains consistently the same…each person will be very well taken care of and given personal time, effort and incredible attention to detail that Don brings to each and every transaction plus a dose or two of his quirky sense of humor to boot.
