Wonderful working with Neil!

Neil is an amazing real estate agent!! He is professional, consistent, responsive, and understands the local market really well. He recently helped me sell my condo and it was such a smooth process. I would absolutely recommend him if you’re looking to buy or sell your home!

He listens!

I told Neil what were my deal breakers...which are: not close to elevators ,cause I hate hearing the ding. The other one was water pressure and hot water! So when we would walk into a condo the first thing he would do is check the hot water. And when we got off the elevator to the condo I bought, it was right in front of the elevator. I didn't notice, but he held the door and we listened to the ding, very quiet! And it was fun looking. He is easy to talk to. and fun. And he really knew the condo market. And the condo I bought was built in 1965 with a really weird air and heat system. So he asked a lot of questions about it. Ones I didn't even know to ask. So thanks Neil! I will call you if I decide to sell:) You just never know.

Neil was perfect for Buying and Selling our first home

Neil is absolutely fantastic at his job. He helped my wife and I buy our first home and later sell that home a few years later. We were new to both processes, but Neil guided us through both flawlessly. We still tell people about how much we enjoyed working with him. He's very responsive, knowledgeable and he has great attention to detail. We would recommend Neil to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Neil is truly the best.

Killed it

Neil killed it selling our house!!!
He made selling a fun experience! Not only did he put up with me, but he helped us in everyway we needed. This was our first time selling a house so we had a lot of questions and navigating to do. If we were to buy or sell again I know who we would get to help! Thanks for everything, Neil!

Best Experience We Could Have Asked For

We truly could not have had a better home buying experience, all thanks to Neil. He was extremely responsive, patient, and helpful throughout our home buying search. This was our first home purchase, and it was made seamless and easy because of Neil's consistent communication and attention to detail. He was able to negotiate our offer quite significantly and even got some appliances thrown in (went above and beyond). I would recommend Neil to anyone purchasing a home. He made the process fun and simple and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Neil!!

Great experience working with Neil

Neil helped me buy my very first home in September and I couldn't be happier! He is diligent, persistent, and easy to work and get along with! Neil made me confident that my decision was a good one. He also sped up the closing process to get me in my new home as soon as possible. I have told my friends who are in the market to buy a home in Denver to reach out to Neil to make the process simple and smooth!

Winning Against an All-Cash Offer

Neil is a star in the Denver Real Estate Market. I came to the New Era team for support in my second home purchase. We were about as undecided as possible around where exactly we wanted to be, what we wanted in a house, and what would be the best bang for our buck - was it a new build townhome, a move-in ready single family, or a single family ripe with need for renovation? Neil thoughtfully walked us through an approach to make sense of all of the variables. After we gained some clarity around those considerations, Neil reacted in real-time to schedule showings, walkthroughs, drive-bys etc. all at our convenience. Our home search process took 60-90 days, primarily due to our own stiff ambitions - and when we ultimately found the perfect home - we had an offer submitted within hours, and ultimately secured closing over a competing, all-cash offer directly due to Neil's effort, professionalism, dedication and guidance. How many people can say they beat out an all-cash offer (of a higher amount) for their dream home, solely due to the competency of their realtor!? Once we secured the closing, we closed in 19 days with 0 hiccups, surprises, or issues.

4 months later, we couldn't be happier with our decision to work with Neil, and his guidance to find our dream home, at a price that put us in a position to secure immediate equity. Thank you Neil, John and everyone at the New Era team!

by Grant Godoan on New Era Group

We have used Neil for a purchase and now a sale of our home. I have nothing but the upmost respect for Neil's knowledge of the real estate business along the Colorado front range and beyond! We were informed during every point in the selling process, which made the process far less stressful from what it could have been. Thank you, Neil!! Keep up the good work.

Efficient, professional and personable!

We listed our historic Denver square with Neil and could not have been happier with his service, expert advice and attention to detail. He helped us set a competitive price and we consequently ended up selling for substantially over the asking price, getting multiple offers and selling within a matter of days. He was our master negotiator and made himself available to us if we had any questions or concerns, no matter how large or small. Neil helped to make selling our beloved home as painless and stress free as possible. He’s the best!

Neil Donavan Review

Neil represented us in selling our home in the Country Club neighborhood in Denver. Neil did his homework in analyzing other properties on the market so we could establish a realistic and fair asking price. Neil's advice led to us choosing between two offers that were both over our asking price by a considerable amount. Neil's professionalism allowed us to close escrow without any issues even as I traveled outside the country. He kept the buyers and the escrow company informed of all details as they came up which let to a fast an efficient closing. I would not hesitate to recommend Neil or his company to anyone that wanted to buy or sell a home or property. He's a hardworking agent and represents himself, his clients and his company well.

Fantastic experience with Neil

Neil was great from start to finish. He was attentive to our needs and made solid recommendations, masterfully managing negotiations in a hot market and then seamlessly coordinating the process. We really lucked out when we found not only the right realtor but the right person to help with our Denver real estate needs.

Amazing Realtor

Neil was amazing at helping us find our new home in Colorado. Since we were relocating from out of state, we thought our search would prove to be difficult, but Neil stepped right up and went above and beyond our expectations!!! If you are looking for a new home in Colorado - he is your guy!

by Charlotte Davis on New Era Group

I was moving from San Diego to Denver. Neil was recommended to handle the real estate process in Denver. Neil did an outstanding job of finding what I was looking for in a specific area. Neil was in constant contact as we navigated the process in Denver including securing a loan to the inspection. He also did the follow up to make sure everything was completed. I would highly recommend Neil as an excellent realtor.

Incredible service

As a first-time home buyer, I feel so lucky to have found Neil! He took the time to teach me about the process for purchasing a home, was patient when I bombarded him with questions, and always did what was in my best interest during negotiations. He is quick to respond to messages and, when it came time to put in an offer, did the research to make sure it was where it needed to be. Neil is the epitome of professionalism and so wonderful to work with. I absolutely recommend him and would definitely work with him again!

by Michael p on New Era Group
Great job

He did a great job for me and was awesome to work with. I had a good size list of things that I need in a home and most all of them were met. Would recommend him to anyone.

First Time Buyer

I almost never write reviews, but this time is different...

It was a random chance when I called Neil about a listing while I was driving through various neighborhoods, and I am very glad I did. I was a first time home buyer and Neil was both fantastic to work with and very professional. He walked me through all the in's and out's as to what to expect and what to avoid in this process. Our closing date got pushed back a week and fell right into a planned trip where I was out of the country for 3 weeks for business. Neil went the extra mile taking care of so many miscellaneous issues that popped up while I was away and helped us close using a POA. We now have a great place to call home and a awesome start to a new chapter in our lives. I HIGHLY recommend contacting Neil, you won't be disappointed with his service.

Our new home

Neil spent a lot of time helping my husband and I search for a Ranch style home. We looked at many properties and he gave us good feedback each time we went out house shopping. But we didn’t just want another house we wanted a home. We finally landed in a great location. We’re thrilled with our new Ranch home that is just right for our multigenerational family. Thanks Neil!!!
