I was lucky to meet Neil through, he called me after I had registered. In short, it was not a sales presentation, it was a simple and friendly conversation among friends. No pressure whatsoever, I explained what I was trying to accomplish and he asked some fairly simple questions. Working with Neil was an absolute delight...personable and professional, extremely knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. The kind of guy who you would trust with the keys to the vault and would go out to happy hour for a beer, I highly recommend his services!

Persistent as heck. Got back to me fast!

You might think that saying Neil responds immediately is a bit of a stretch, but it is not! Neil helped me buy my condo and then sell it. I am a very impatient person:) But I swear he moves fast! And he is so persistent. I had a kind of situation that was a hard sell, but he was so persistent and got it done! He just keeps at it. And he knows the market really well. And also I really do appreciate that he is very smart. I have nothing but good things to say! Thank you Neil!

5 Stars!

Neil helped us find our home in one of the hottest markets Denver has ever seen. We had worked with a realitor prior without any luck. He is very knowledgeable and has a great understanding of the market. He was so easy to work with. He really did make the process enjoyable. We will definitely be using Neil going forward!

Wonderful to Work With!

Neil was so wonderful to work with. As first time home buyers, he helped steer us in the right direction while buying a house, and he made the process so easy. He went up to bat for us multiple times with our builder and he made it easy to trust him. Would absolutely work with him again!

Neil was fantastic to work with. Neil is ver attentive to details and the entire process. If I ever had a question or needed an answer Neil would get back to me immediately. I will recommend Neil to all my associates in their moves to Denver. I can’t say enough about Neil and his work ethic absolutely fantastic.

Neil Donavan was recommended to us and I can say he was beyond what my wife and I were hoping for. He helped was sell and buy a new home. The stressful times he was able to talk us through to keep our minds at ease. His communication and availability was just about perfect as far as being able to answer questions for us yet still maintaining a boundary that was not overcommunicating or interrupting family time not just for us but for himself. Very positive and outgoing personality that we were able to get along with right away! We appreciate above and beyond the help he was able to give us! Thank you!

Help finding my home

Neil was incredibly helpful through the entire process of finding my home. He gave me advice as if I were his sister. He provided his impressive knowledge along with great care to find the right fit for me. I'm overwhelmingly grateful for his support and guidance!

Couldn't have done it without Neil

Our home-buying journey could not have come at a worse time, but Neil made the process a LOT smoother. He is a virtually endless source of knowledge, experience, and optimism. Working with Neil, it is clear that he does what he does because he loves helping home-buyers have an enjoyable experience.

Neil is the BEST!

Neil Donavan was absolutely amazing to work with. We couldn't have asked for anyone better! He was encouraging, supportive, quick to respond, and truly kept our best interest at heart. We loved working with Neil and will definitely be returning clients whenever we decide to move next.

A little summary of our story - We were first time home buyers, while prices were rocketing and inventory was historically low (winter & spring 2021). We HAD to find somewhere to live by May (landlords were selling our unit), and the market was insane. There were plenty of homes we loved listed in our price range, but offers were coming in (on almost every property) 60-100k over asking, waving anything and everything they could in the contracts. We found ourselves unable to compete AT ALL, even with a sizable downpayment, excellent credit, and listings in our price range. It was disheartening, discouraging, and stressful. We went out for 4-6 hours almost every weekend for weeks on end, and put in an offer almost every week.

We heard through the grapevine that some realtors were dropping clients like us (we were taking up a lot of time with no end/payday in sight). Neil stuck with us and did everything he could to get us in a home. He was positive and kept our moral up. He gave awesome little pep talks as needed, and really helped us feel like we were going to make it through this and end up in a home we loved. (And sure enough we did!)

He also made sure we were finding any and all issues with the properties we were looking at. He mentioned a few things about some homes we missed, and they were great catches! He went the extra mile to build rapport with any agents that would be beneficial to our offer, and we felt like he put in 110% for us.

I can't recommend Neil Donavan highly enough and would pass his name along to family and friends in a heart beat. Go with Neil!! You want him in your corner!

The Best of the Best!

There is not a better realtor in the Denver Metro Area than Neil Donavan! 3 years ago, he helped us land our first home; a nice 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom starter home in Broomfield, CO. Then, in 2021, when the market was red hot and homes were on the market for at most 4 days, he helped us sell that home AND buy our "forever" home, a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom in Highlands Ranch, WITHIN THE SAME MONTH!

If you are looking to buy your first home, upgrade to your forever home, or even downsize, I highly recommend Neil. His knowledge of Denver's real estate market is second to none and he makes buying and selling a fun process.

Can’t go wrong!

Can’t go wrong hiring Neil. He helped us price competitively despite our apprehensions and the house sold for way more than we would have imagined! Natalie from Simply Home Denver helped augment our staging and between that and the stellar photographer our house really showed well. Thank you!!

Best Realtor in Denver Metro

Neil Donavan went above and beyond in every way imaginable. From providing unique market insights, to guiding us through stressful aspects of the transaction, Neil gave us peace of mind throughout the entire journey. Neil is also a fun loving guy that wants everyone to be happy, while at the same time sticking to his fiduciary responsibility as an agent for an optimal outcome. I hope that Neil gets the credit he deserves in the marketplace as one of Denver’s best.

Outstanding Realtor

Working with Neil Donovan and the New Era Group was one of the best experiences I have ever had in real estate. Neil was kind to us, patient with our search, conscientious with important details and negotiations, and attentive to our needs. In a highly competitive market, we found the best house with high end appliances, finishes, and a spectacular design that checked off all the boxes. We will definitely be referring Neil to our family and friends!

by Jessie Holley on New Era Group

Neil Donovan treated us like family, we are so glad we found him!

Fantastic Realtor

Neil was great to work with on a personal and professional level. He provided great market insights, understood our preferences in type of house and location, and most importantly was persistent but not impatient with our house search in a challenging market. We were not local during the search and Neil gladly served as our 'eyes and ears' during during the trying times of a pandemic. At the end of the day, we were happy with the process and the home we found. Highly recommended!!

Neil Donavan

Neil was perfect and made house hunting fun even in a seller’s market. He patiently showed us homes and condos and allowed us the time to educate ourselves on the market and then helped us find the perfect place. Seriously nice guy.

by Ann Cardinal on New Era Group
Wonderful working with Neil!

Neil was wonderful to work with! We live out of state and were worried that the house buying process would be difficult without actually being there. It could not have gone smoother thanks to Neil! He took care of everything and was always available with an immediate response to any question or concern we had. We would HIGHLY recommend Neil!

by Kim Vande Griend on New Era Group
Awesome Realtor

Neil Donavan was a great realtor for us when we were in the process of buying and selling our house! He went above and beyond our expectations and made the entire process really fun and enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Simply the Best!

My family’s journey to purchase a property in Denver is one that started almost 3 years ago. Neil has been with us every step of the way, from our initial meeting over the phone, to multiple trips to view properties, to our final selection and ultimate purchase. His expertise in local matters has been amazing, his organizational skills have kept us on target, and his steady guidance has been invaluable. He never pushed or prodded, but laid out options to help us make our decision. My husband and I are extremely grateful for Neil’s help and highly recommend him.

by Lindsay on New Era Group
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!
