Best Real Estate Agent Ever!

Neil Donavan is everything you want in a real estate agent. My wife and I recently bought a home and Neil exceeded my expectations of what a real estate agent could do for me. Neil is knowledgeable, honest, kind, hardworking and most importantly, always available. During the process of buying we encountered some unexpected problems and I am certain we would have lost our new home but not for Neil’s guidance and negotiating skills. Throughout his representation Neil was always patient with us and addressed all our questions and concerns in a timely fashion. Thank you Neil for what you have done for our family!

Neil Donavan

Neil did an outstanding job working with us to find a downtown condo. He quickly zeroed in on our requirements and set up several showings on a single day to meet our schedules. He was very responsive to our questions and concerns during the negotiation process and definitely “went to bat” for us on a number of times. Neil’s friendly and upbeat personality made the home buying process more enjoyable for us as well. He has an excellent grasp of the Denver area market from both an inventory and a value point of view. We would work with Neil again and highly recommend him for anyone in the market to buy a home!

Very responsive as well, will to come out and take my wife and I house showings. We love the house.

Happy Homeowner!!

I sold real estate years ago and knew quickly I was dealing with a Real Estate professional. It is a tough and fast moving market. Neil zeroed in on all the requirements and budget. When a prospect was available we were there. It took a while to find the right place but the condo I bought was under contract within hours of the listing. Neil was as serious about finding me the right place as I was. During the closing process, which took a total of 10 days, Neil was detail oriented and timeline specific. No, I am not his mother, sister or relative. I am just a happy homeowner because Neil was persistent in his search for me.

As first time home buyer, Neil was very knowledgeable in navigating the competitive Denver real estate market. This made the process that much more enjoyable and less stressful. Neil was alway available for last minute showings and prepared with answers to any question I had. I would definitely recommend Neil to any home buyer or someone looking to sell their current home. You better believe that I will use Neil again! THANK YOU NEIL!!!

Neil is Fantastic!

We had never bought a home before and Neil made a very overwhelming process so smooth and dare I say, almost easy? Neil is patient, professional, hard working, and understanding. He is knowledgeable about Denver and surrounding areas. He connects so well with people and with the professionals in the real estate business. He'll work hard for you and help you find your dream home. We could not be happier with the entire process, as Neil was ahead of us and also right beside us as we found our home. You will not be disappointed in Neil. Denver's market is huge and there are so many realtors to choose from. Choose Neil! He'll become a friend and he's the realtor you will absolutely invite to your housewarming BBQ once you get moved in and settled.

So grateful for Neil!

In this wild, crazy, and stressful Denver market Neil was absolutely the best. He is knowledgeable, available, and responsive to emails and texts--time is of the essence in this market. We so appreciated him speaking up about things we would have never thought about, for example, cracks in a foundation, awkward layout of a backyard, bright lights from across the street, he helped us stay true to what we really wanted. He kept us laughing and became a friend in the process. We love, love our new house!

Buying a house isn't easy. Having to wade through a mess of professional there to help you with (and let's be honest, profit from) the process makes it that much harder. My partner and I interviewed a few different agents over the phone before talking to Neil and sensing he was a good fit.Man, were we right.Neil was always available to show us houses (even at the last minute), always showed up on time or early to pick us up or meet us there, had always done his homework on the houses we were looking at (as well as comparable homes in the area), and gave us room to have our opinions and lesser-concrete feelings about a place, while offering a professional's perspective on each place.Being a first time homebuyer, I didn't realize finding a home (after putting in four other offers, all of which Neil did a ton of work on) was only half the struggle. Neil came with us to the home inspection, a second showing, even appeared alone to go through the sewer scope with the plumber while we were at work--and he was amazing during negotiating with the seller and their agent, through some admittedly trickey waters.Would I work with Neil again? Not the right question. When we're ready for a new place, we WILL be working with him again. Meantime, snap him up.

Truly Outstanding, Neil is the Best!

Neil was outstanding to work with from day one! As first time buyers, we did our best to come prepared but of course had many questions and concerns. He was always able to put our minds at ease and also educate us when necessary. Neil really became a friend to us by the end of the whole process. He is extremely trustworthy and knowledgeable, but also very sincere and fun to be around! He was accessible and responsive during the tedious and time-sensitive periods of the process. It’s reassuring to work with someone who is not only exceptional at what they do, but also who is a very genuine person that you can count on. We appreciated his eye for detail on both the house hunting side and the paperwork side, and always felt taken care of. His service really could not be topped! Clearly, we had a great experience working with Neil to buy our first home and we couldn't be happier. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He was fabulous!
