You can learn a lot growing up on a farm in rural Illinois. Just ask Gillespie native Judy Spencer-Dona. When it came to the daily chores on her family's farm - raising the livestock and harvesting the crops - each member of the family did their part. And although she didn't realize it at the time, young Judy was learning invaluable life lessons that would be the foundation for her later pursuits. To this day, she'll tell you her strong work ethic and her commitment to getting the job done are direct results of her childhood days on her family's farm.

Even though she moved away from her hometown for a period to take advantage of career opportunities, she carried with her the values she learned early on. While Judy was grateful for the chance to experience new places and meet new people, she always secretly longed to return to Illinois' rural countryside. She'll even tell you her love for her home grew stronger during her time away, which is whey she was even more grateful to be able to return to the area she cherished.
It's been several years since Judy moved back, and she feels it more than ever - there's no place like home. She now has a different perspective on the area. More than ever she treasures the natural beauty, the easy-going atmosphere and, perhaps most importantly, the warm, friendly people.

"Judy was amazing. My schedule isn't very flexible. I was in and out of town a lot and my job is very demanding. Judy was most flexible. She worked around my schedule and took the time to show me multiple homes. She took an interest in me and lined up homes for me based on what she learned about me. She researched homes that I brought her way and scheduled me to see them as well. I felt like we were in this together. Again... She was amazing. When I'm ready to relocate.... I'll call Judy. One word to describe my experience.... Painless.”
"This is the third home Judy Spencer Dona has helped sell for me. Always professional and helpful in making decisions on marketing. Mr. Pence was also a valuable asset as well. There to answer any construction questions the buyer may have. Also arranged for local contractors to remedy walkthrough issues buyer had. Excellent, pretty much says it all.Professional all aspects”

"We recently moved to Illinois from Ohio and Judy was invaluable in our search for a home in our new area. She spent an entire weekend with us, not only showing us many, many homes for
sale, but also helping us get acquainted with the area.”
-Julie Mitchell, Gillespie, IL
"Judy took care of absolutely everything. Other than getting a lot of practice signing my name all I had to do was bring my drivers license to closing. Judy's obvious expertise and pleasant demeanor made an intimidating process palatable. Highly recommended.”
-Alan Branthaver Modesto, IL
"Judy Spencer-Dona is our "go-to" realtor since we moved back to this area. She found the right house for us despite our complicated needs and sold each of our parent's homes and an aunt's home for us all within the space of five years. These houses all sold quickly at very good prices in down markets. Judy made potentially stressful times comfortable, easy and very manageable for us."
-Darrell and Judy Messerle, Carlinville, IL
"I am new to this area of Illinois, so I needed an agent that was very familiar and helpful for finding the right
home, and the right neighborhood to meet my needs. Judy went well beyond what I expected for finding my home and provided the best service I could imagine from a realtor. Once we found the right home she did a great job helping me negotiate the best price. Since then, I recently relocated, and Judy once again was there for me. She found a buyer for my home in very little time! I highly recommend Judy as realtor and she will be my choice for any future real estate needs”
-Michael Stith, Gillespie, IL
"I'm not even sure where to start when it comes to our experience with Judy Spencer-Dona. She pulled off what I consider a miracle. She found us the perfect house to buy and she sold the house we were in, all in about 6 weeks. Truly amazing! It happened so fast my head was spinning. She worked non-stop for us. We called her early in the morning and late at night and she was always available. She did a direct mail of the house we were selling and she sold it to someone who got the post card in their mailbox. And we got multiple offers from the mailing. I've recommended her to everyone I know.”
