Donna Thomas

Senior Mortgage Consultant

Licensed in SC
Coverage Areas:

I have worked in the mortgage industry in South Carolina for more than 20 years and I am known for my passion for excellence. With extensive experience and loan product knowledge, I approach the needs of each customer with a high degree of confidence and understanding and offer them valuable advice and several financing options quickly.

I take great pride in providing a very high level of service to my clients through honest communication and integrity. I treat my clients like I want to be treated, with accurate information and timely responses. I will respect your questions and your schedule and offer you mortgage solutions that are personalized to your specific situation. Each and every client is very important to me, and my amount of referral business reflects that.

Our clients may only think about home financing a few times during their life. We think about it every single day. It’s your home and your future. It’s our profession and our passion. My team looks forward to serving you and your real estate financing needs.

'Accomplishing your goals in life is a lot easier when you have help. Donna Thomas from Allen Tate is that help that we needed to close on our first home. From the initial conversation with her to discuss our different loan options, all the way to the closing with the attorneys, Donna was there for us. It took us some time to find the right home for us and it gave us peace in knowing that we chose a mortgage consultant that was patient in understanding the vision of faith that we had as first time home owners. During the loan processing portion, she was always quick to let us know what additional documents were needed. She was even courteous enough to respond quickly to our emails whenever we had additional questions. She did not make us feel like we were just another client; she made us feel respected and appreciated. That same statement goes for all of the Allen Tate employees that we interacted with either in person or via email all the way from the real estate assistance, to the loan processing, even down to the closing day. We love our new home and Allen Tate was big help in us accomplishing our goal of becoming homeowners. Antonio and Georgia McClintock 10/3/2015' Antonio and Georgia McClintock

Hey Donna, Thanks for making the loan/buying process so easy! It was a real advantage for me to be able to work with both an Allen Tate agent and an Allen Tate Mortgage Consultant. You guys worked together behind the scenes to make a lot happen that I never had to get involved in. The best part is that the great service came along with a great rate ... one that matched the lowest rate I was offered by other lenders. Overall, I could not be happier with the process and the results! Thanks again! David Springstroh

"Donna Thomas handled the mortgage end of the purchase of our new home at 114 Elevation Court in Greer, SC. Donna did an excellent job in managing all of the details of this transaction. We felt very comfortable and secure with her in charge of all the particulars of getting our mortgage approved, and the whole transaction was smooth and trouble-free. Thank you for having such a wonderful associate in your fine organization."

I wanted to thank you all the work that you did to get our home closed on time. When I first started applying for a mortgage, I knew that I had a close to impossible timeline. It was July 2nd, and my home in Anderson was closing on July 31st. I needed a home August 1st! My first choice for mortgage providers was USAA, my bank. However, they wanted a $300 application fee, and didn't think that we could close before the middle of August. They gave me no hope of closing earlier. On the other hand, you let me apply for free and gave me hope that we could close by August 1st. Every step of they way you, and your team, helped me get the right paperwork filled out and submitted. We probably would have closed on August 1st if I had not extended my closing to August 8th. Incredibly, we were able to close in 29 days! Thank you again for your help,

James McAvoy

'5 Stars. Donna made everything very easy. She was professional, knowledgeable, and readily accessible. She either answered our phone call or returned the phone call or email very quickly. Never at any time was I confused about where we were in the process. Also provided us a very clear (and accurate) picture of the HUD settlement. THERE WERE NO SURPRISES throughout the experience. Will highly and enthusiastically recommend Donna to friends and colleagues.' James McAvoy

John Pommerening

I'd like to thank you for your help with my financing. You were very thorough and patient with my needs. It couldn't have been an easier process for me. I'll certainly recommend your expertise to any prospective buyers I meet. Aloha, Jack Pommerening

'My husband and I really enjoyed working with Donna. She is very professional and responsive. She was always available for questions. I utilized the online tools and it was very efficient with my busy schedule. We had zero hiccups with processing our home loan. And of course, the rate was great. Thank You Donna' Karean Cotto

Donna Thomas, I can’t thank you enough for your help in refinancing my home. After speaking to a few previous lenders, then speaking to you, it was clear in my mind you were the person I was going to do business with. It had nothing to do with interest rates (although you did get me a great rate), but rather the professionalism and expertise you displayed in our conversation. Also you displayed to me that you had my best interest in mind and that means everything to me. There were some unusual circumstances that we ran across during the refinance process but you always guided me through them, the fact is that you had to help guide the closing lawyer through them at times! I have and always will recommend you and Allen Tate Mortgage to anyone I speak to interested in a loan. Near the end of the process I actually started calling you Aunt Donna. I have already told a few people “ go to Allen Tate Mortgage and ask for Donna Thomas. “ Again, I can’t thank you enough and I look forward to doing business with you in the future. Sincerely, Ken Krantz

Kenneth T.

"Donna Thomas and her team get 5 stars. No one will work harder for you. Due to circumstances beyond my control I had a 75 point credit rating drop four days before closing. Donna and her team pulled out all the stops to rework the loan and close at the scheduled time. There are not many who have the skills and would make the effort for that to happen. Many thanks !" Kenneth T.


'Donna was so helpful throughout the mortgage and home buying process! She listened to my priorities and helped me choose a mortgage that matched my goals. She explained everything thoroughly and made sure I understood what was happening each step of the way. It was easy to review and sign documents electronically. Donna was great at communicating with my realtor and keeping things on track. I had never had any experience with Allen Tate before, but I feel like I really landed on my feet!' Leanne

"Donna was extremely efficient, professional and responsive during the entire process of qualifying for our loan to closing. She and Fran were a pleasure to work with. Five Stars to both!!!" Marcia Olewine

Melody Aleman

Good morning to you all! I wanted to write a short email to thank all of you for making my home buying experience absolutely WONDERFUL! I truly appreciate the personal attention and service that you provided me with. You guys are really great at what you do! They say that word of mouth marketing is the best way to advertise and I want you to know that I WILL be telling everyone about my experience with Allen Tate. Thank you so much for everything! Have a great day, Melody Aleman

Robyn Grage

Sandra Krebs

"From my first inquiry through closing Donna was communicative, very responsive to emails, texts and phone calls, kind, professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I do not recommend people often because I am, by extension, putting my own reputation on the line, but I would not hesitate to recommend Donna to family or friends. Thank you for all you do Donna! " Sandra Krebs

Scott Friday

THANK YOU DONNA! We very much appreciate your professionalism, thoroughness, and responsiveness throughout the entire mortgage financing process. Your support and guidance during the stressful events of selling & purchasing homes was invaluable and we will be sure to recommend your services to anyone needing a mortgage loan.

Snowy Robertson

Donna, Many thanks from Adrienne and I for your excellent professional and moral support during our home buying process. You were ever so patient even with my indecisiveness at the beginning and you managed to guide us into a position that enabled us to buy our first home. We are delighted with where we ended up and are so excited to have moved into our new home. I will certainly recommend you and Allen Tate Mortgage to any home buying friends. Cheers and All the Best!

Stephanie Urbanowicz

Hi Donna, First let me take the time to thank you for all your hard work on helping me get a mortgage for my home. You made the job so easy, it was hard to believe it was happening. I have to admit, I am a bit of a skeptic and also wanted to know exactly how much everything was so I could feel comfortable about signing the papers. This was like a first mortgage for us since our last mortgage was obtained 33 years ago. Things have certainly changed. You always returned my calls in a timely manner and always tried to put my mind at ease. At times I just felt it was too good to be true. Thank you for all your help. If you need a testimonial, please use mine. I would highly recommend you and your staff. Thank you again. Sincerely, Stephanie Urbanowicz

'I appreciated the real, honest concerns for the apprehension I was experiencing applying for a home mortgage, 1st time buyer, age 75. Linda Humphries and Donna Thomas welcomed me in a most assuring, comfortable, endearing way without pretense and with the highest integrity so that what I "felt" is what "it is". I thank God for placing me in a new responsible position and with new, responsible professionals along side.' Susan C. Brown

Yolanda Cobb

I am really enjoying my new home! Thanks for all you did to make the process a success. God has really blessed you with a gift, and I am so grateful that you have chosen to walk in that gift - even during the tough times. Keep doing what you do because you truly make a difference in the lives of those who think of owning a home as only a "dream." I was once that person, but now I am a witness that homeownership is more than only a "dream." It's a "dream come true!!" Sincerely, Yolanda
