Donna Galinsky - Allen Tate Realtors
Donna Galinsky

Your Lake Norman Realtor®

Donna Galinsky loves Charlotte and Lake Norman!

She was a life-time Long-Islander with a successful career in real estate sales when she and her husband moved to North Carolina in 2015. Donna quickly embraced all that the Lake Norman region has to offer, and plays on several tennis leagues and enjoys kayaking and boating on the lake.

Her experience has given her insight on what it's like for her clients to move to a new area, and she is excited to share the attributes of living in Lake Norman as well as provide that extra personal assistance that can make all the difference to those new to the area.

"I love real estate and I love Lake Norman! I look forward to working with you to find you the right home for you and your family!"

Donna is Co-President of Sisterhood at Temple Kol Tikvah in Davidson and was a Learnworks volunteer at the Ada Jenkins Center in Davidson.

A seasoned real estate veteran, Donna previously was a top producer at Pugatch Realty Company in Woodmere, N.Y.
