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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

by Michael Marks on New Era Group

Neil is an awesome salesperson but more importantly a better person. You can trust that Neil will take good care of you.

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!!

by Sarah Anderson on New Era Group
Go-to guy for new home purchase!

Neil was excellent to work with! We utilized Neil for our new home search and purchase. He is knowledgeable, professional, and a genuinely nice person. We appreciate all of his expertise and helping us find a wonderful home for our family! If you're looking for a home, Neil should be your go-to guy!

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.

by Stephanie on New Era Group
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!
