What clients are saying...


Donna Paisely covered all the bases and more. She kept us well informed all the way through and helped us get our price after one day on the market. "

I worked with Donna Paisley for both commercial and personal real estate. Selling and buying property is stressful and Donna managed to lighten the process, even making it fun. I greatly appreciate her professionalism and care. "

- Leah Gallie


Bought a place with Donna Paisley as my realtor. She is an absolutely fantastic person, and knows her industry well. If you’re thinking of a buying a property, or need to list one in the valley, connect with her to set you up. "

Selling your home and moving to another can be extremely stressful. To have a realtor help you navigate through it with confidence and efficiency, however, can make all the difference in the world. For us, that person was Donna Paisley, from MacKay Real Estate. From the start to the end of that process, everything about her work for us signaled knowledge and professionalism. She priced the house perfectly; her website description of our home was dead on; she was in constant communication with us and often provided services that were well beyond her job description. As a result, there was no stress, no guesswork. All we had to do was wait for the right buyer. In other words, she was “exceptional.” "

We would highly recommend Donna Paisley of MacKay Real Estate to anyone buying or selling a home. Donna did a wonderful job preparing our house for listing. We had multiple offers and a sale within a few days thanks to Donna’s experience, friendly personality and incredible work ethic. Thank you, Donna! "

Worked with Maggie MacKay and Mike Reese to purchase our home. We were first time home buyers and they made the whole process very pleasant for us from start to finish. We have referred several people to MacKay Real Estate since. Highly recommend! "

We had a fantastic experience buying our first home with Allen Chase. My wife and I felt supported and informed the whole way, and thought Allen went above and beyond to make it a success. "

We've had fantastic experiences working with Donna on several deals. She is always professional, friendly, and responsive. We would highly recommend working with her and the team at MacKay Real Estate. "

 I don’t do reviews often, but I can’t praise Allen Chase & Peter Morse enough, as they are top of the line in the real estate business. As a seasoned buyer/seller, we’ve had our share of bad experiences. Allen was available (text, email and phone as needed) every step of the way to make sure our deal went through - even though there were some major difficulties along the way. Our country-style century home (requiring a unique buyer) was sold in less than 2 weeks!! That is in the Valley NS market!! These guys do the research, spend time to help create an optimal sale/buy and then make it happen! The added value they bring is priceless. If you’re buying or selling a home you can’t go wrong with Allen & Peter. "

Our first experience with MacKay Real Estate Ltd was hiring Peter Morse to help us purchase land in Halls Harbour in 2020. Peter was absolutely fantastic! He was kind, patient and very helpful with anything we needed. He answered all our questions and was very personable. Our second experience with MacKay Real Estate Ltd was when we decided to buy a house in Aylesford. Since we were out of province buyers the situation was a bit more complicated than most. Peter Morse handed us off to Jeff Pettigrew. From there Jeff was a constant in our lives from the day we started looking to the day we moved in to our first Christmas in Nova Scotia. Since distance was an issue, Jeff had to do virtual tours of prospective houses of interest. Since we were unable to be present for the tours we trusted that Jeff had our best interest at heart. He gave us his honest opinion and helped direct us in the best path forward. When we finally find our forever home things moved quickly. He was there for all the inspections, appointments and found answers for all our questions. Buying a house without ever stepping foot in it 2000 kms away was scary but the team at MacKay Real Estate Ltd made it possible. We thank everyone who participated in our move and our new future. "

We have used MacKay to both sell our Condo and buy a new home and we could not have been happier with the experience. Lawrence MacIsaac was our realtor in both cases and I can honestly say we would not have had the amazing outcomes in both situations if it hadn't been for him. Lawrence was just what we wanted in a realtor - professional and friendly in the perfect mix. We felt comfortable asking him all our questions and he always responded in a timely, professional manner, and he was always game to listen to our hair brain schemes as we tried to figure out what we wanted in a new house. When we did find what we were looking for Lawrence was the one who guided us through an extremely competitive market and had us act quickly enough to secure the sale. Lawrence thank you for all you do and making house selling and hunting such an enjoyable experience! We could not have done it without you! "

From start to finish Donna Paisley did an amazing job helping my wife and I locate a home that met our criteria to enable us to relocate back to Nova Scotia. She took us to see multiple properties while we were visiting, and then did remote tours after we left, providing honest and straightforward assessments. We were confident enough to negotiate a purchase remotely and have not been disappointed with the result. Throughout the closing process she was always available and attentive, looking after lots of details that we could not do remotely. On move in day she even brought donuts for the movers! Thanks Donna, and the team at MacKay, for your help and support.

We have worked with Donna from the agency to purchase 3 properties and sell 5 properties. John and Donna were very fair. Donna has gone over and above for us time and time again. We will continue to work with them well into the future. "
