Very smooth and professional from start to closing. We would definitely recommend you to anyone wishing to buy or sell property in the Orlando area.  Elizabeth F - Carnoustie - U.K

We (my wife and I) recently closed on a purchase contract (LBV Resort & Spa) where Dan Palmer represented us as the buyers.

Dan is a terrific guy and a great agent. He went above and beyond during the whole process from initial contact through closing. This could have been difficult, given that we live in Canada, but Dan made it smooth and easy. Kudos to Dan and the Team Donovan team.

Great service!

Brad H - Ontario - Ca

This is the second house I have sold using TeamDonovan as the realtor. On both occasions I was amazed to have an offer within three days which quickly became a sale, at slightly above the asking price.
Well done to Team Donovan Roger H - Somerset - U.K
10 hours from first photograph to offer. Expected the process to take much longer. Team Donovan helped by referring to Title company and accountants. Steve, James and Zack were brilliant. Thanks so much. Christine H - West Midlands - U.K
Selling and property is fraught with problems, even worse when you are 5000 miles away. However TD made this an extremely easy and uncomplicated deal. Would highly recommend. Thanks to all of the team. John H - Staffordshire - U.K

Dan did a wonderful job. Really appreciate all he did for us and would recommend him to anyone.
Good job Dan. Looking forward to getting together again.

As everyone knows selling your home can be so stressful and daunting, we cannot believe how stress free Team Donavan made this for us.  The service they gave us was unbelievable.

Chris O - Ireland

We have been extremely satisfied with whole process and would gladly recommend your services to anyone in need of them.
Once again many thanks for all your help.

Noel T - Kildare - Ireland
It was good to meet up with Steve face-to-face at the beginning of the process which also allowed some paperwork to be completed in advance at Equitable Title. I found the whole experience to be much smoother than I had feared. Many thanks from Jessica and myself. Michael B - Feltham - U.K
Extremely easy process. Felt we were taken care of and looked after, from start to finish. Excellent communications throughout. Excellent interchange of information and closing documents. Would highly recommend. Gordon N - Aberdeenshire - U.K

Ron M - Troy - MI


Thanks to you and the team for all your work on this. I felt I got to know everyone there and it was all personal. Special thanks to Marilyn for keeping me updated as we went along. I would rate 1. Excellent on each section. Very happy with the whole process especially as there was a hiccup with the first buyer but you came up with another almost immediately. Recommendation any time.

Alan J - Hertfordshire - U.K
Dan Palmer is a first rate Agent. He was on top of the process from the beginning. It was a pleasure dealing with him. Steve W - Orlando - Fl
It was a pleasure to deal with Dan and your office and will highly recommend your team. Rocco G - Dorval - Canada
Just to say thank you for the work put into the sale with a special thank you to James and Marilyn. Selling a house is a stressful business and at times we became quite anxious but a quick phone call to your offices soon sorted us out. Brian F - Bolton - U.K

We would like to thank both of you for your hard work on selling our home.

Your information and indepth knowledge was extremely helpful.

The listing of the property and the photographs were very professional and compared to other properties it showed our home in a light that no doubt helped to get the full asking price sale.

After we had a buyer your communications allowed us to be at ease with the whole process, and you were always available to answer any questions.

Jeannie Dorion at Equitable Title was extremely professional, and the partnership with Team Donovan shows through, we had a small question after the closing, and Jeannie made us feel very welcome at there offices and was able to answer our questions and put our minds at rest.

Once again thanks for all your help, and we wish you all the best at Team Donocan and would not hesitate in recommend your services.

Terry & Elaine B - London - U.K
We really appreciated James' prompt reply emails/phone-calls when we were all trying to deal with a very frustratingly slow and unprofessional Buyer's Realtor.
James and Marilyn helped and guided us through this very long process Jon & Kim D - Somerset - U.K
The closing process could not have been better. The efficiency of Marilyn and the Title company was first class, information and updates were regular and helpful. At this stage the service couldn't be faulted. Mike T - Hampshire - U.K
Team Donovan were a delight to deal with and was very pleased with their services. They explained the process clearly, kept me informed regularly and handled the transaction with confidence and in a reassuring manner. Would fully recommend Team Donovan to sell your property! Dean H - London - U.K
Extremely satisfied, Marilyn was especially helpful with keeping us updated and answering our questions. Gill W - Kent - U.K
James and the team made everything easy and worry free. Being so far away, we felt confident that everything was going well. The regular updates were really useful. Maureen E - U.K
Dan Palmer was simply amazing. From the very first phone call when I called to get some information on Bahama Bay to the day of our closing, Dan was so helpful and truly went above and beyond in helping us understand the entire process. He always returned our calls and patiently answered our many questions. The Donovan office staff (Marilyn) was also incredibly helpful. We feared it would be difficult to purchase a home in Florida with us living in CT, but Dan et al made the entire process seamless and quite simple. I would refer anyone to your office. Thank you for all of your help! We couldn't be happier! Eunice L - CT
Very pleased after a lot of bad experiences with others.  Jack F - County Kerry - Ireland
Dan Palmer was our real estate contact and we were so impressed with the amount of service that he gave us. In addition, he was a man that we could trust and he gave much needed advice which let us to buy our dream property - unseen. We would not have done that if we had a trusted him so much. However, we could not have been happier with the purchase.  Thank you! We would give him our warmest recommendations. 
 
 Happy new year. 
Ingjerd L - CT - U.S
I had high expectations which your promises met and your actions achieved. Delighted with the outcome. Anton E - Kent - U.K.
I have rated all the above as Met Expectations but this does not tell the whole story. The expectations of a realtor with a very good reputation are high and these high expectations were all met. In particular queries were answered more or less by return and viewing feedback given on a regular basis. Having spoken to my managing agent I was informed that the viewings were far more than those achieved by the previous realtor which was expected from Team Donovan but comforting nevertheless. The closing was handled well and any hold-ups were entirely a result of my delays.

Many thanks to the Team. Wendy C - U.K
Thank you guys so much for all your help and support!  Chris C - Ontario - CA
We had a very difficult buyer who managed to renegotiate for months delaying the process endlessly. We worked with Donovan and actually completed the sale with the second person who viewed the property. After signing the 7th addendum with the title company I was about to give up and relist the property but James persevered and got the job done.  Michael O - MA
Excellent service and advice from start to finish. Trevor B - U.K
Thank you Steve 
 
You and your team were excellent .
Linda N - U.K
This property sold fast and it was an efficient process. Mr. Donovan listened to me about what I felt the property was worth and when a low-ball offer came in he didn't try to go for the quick sale. Rather, we worked together and we ultimately sold it for what I thought was fair.

I've bought and sold several properties and have experience with other realtors -- he and his team were very outgoing, provided timely updates, and communicated very well thru the whole process.  Michael H - MD - USA
Very happy doing business with team donovan Patrick S - Ireland
We were extremely satisfied with the service from yourself and Marilyn who was always quick to respond to my queries. I have already praised Team Donovan on the Highgate Park Facebook page and would have no hesitation in recommending you. John M - U.K
Dan Palmer's assistance througth the purchase process was outstanding!. After identifying a property we were interested in, Dan made sure he viewed the property prior to us putting an offer, coordinated to make sure the necessary repairs in the inspection were complete by the seller, and provided great support through the closing process. We would highly recommend Team Donovan to assist the purchase of a Vacation home in the Orlando area.  Kevin M - Saskatoon - CA
Really pleased with the service from Team Donovan. Kept us up to date throughout the listing & selling process, will definitely and have recommend :-) Toni T - Essex - U.K
Excellent job by Dan & Marilyn.... Dan, above & beyond!!
Many thanks to all at TD. Ian R - Lancashire - U.K
Great Team - honest and straight forward. A pleasure working with the Team. John & Lynda. Scotland John T - Scotland - U.K
From start to finish Team Donvovan were great would recommend them highly Mike N - U.K
Team Donovan was especially attentive to keeping me informed at each step of the selling process for each of my three properties. Even though one of the buyers seemed to be raising irrelevant issues, TD worked to provide guidance and suggestions. Nancy M
Dan Palmer exceeded all expectations, went above and beyond anything any realtor had ever done for us. He is a man of honor, a man of his word, honest, excels at his craft. He is more than our realtor, he is our friend. Bill T - Davenport, Fl
Team Donovan always reassured us of the market, the sale process and the eventual transaction. Everything went accordingly. I would certainly have Team Donovan represent us again. Michael M - Dublin - Ireland
As an owner in Florida for some 12 years I have also dealt with a number of brokers and realtors in the US. I am also an estate agent in the UK for over 30 years. Team Donovan have been impressed me both in their approach to gain my business with professional marketing and house price reports. Once instructed their client contact was excellent surpassed only by their skills in finding and negotiating a sale and the assistance offered to me as a non US citizen. I have no hesitation in recommending Team Donovan !!!  Ian C - Liverpool - U.K
Sale went through very quickly and process was painless considering we live 4000 miles away. Peter D _ Birmingham - U.K
Very Quick and organized. Much appreciated. Mark T - Regina - Canada
We cannot express how pleased we were with Dan Palmer and the entire Donovan team. Dan continuously kept us informed of any houses he thought we might be interested in and was more than happy to show us them. He was never pushy, rather very informative and professional. Dan was there from day one until the closing.
We feel he actually went above and beyond when we were having an issue with Haines City Water. He straightened out the problem by personally going to the water company and giving them the deposit they required, out of his own pocket, until we got to Florida and could reimburse him. Now that's a team player and excellent employee. He is definitely an asset to the Donovan Team. We will, if we have the opportunity, recommend Dan Palmer and the Donovan Team to anyone we might know that is in the market for a home.

Thank you for your help in making this purchase a pleasurable one! Chet J - N.J
Professional and friendly. Mark N - U.K
When we reflect on our experience with Team Donovan, two words come to mind: professionalism and efficiency. As we are non US residents, we believed that selling our Florida property from a distance would be challenging. Team Donovan immediately reassured us and walked us through the process one step at a time with clear instructions and daily follow up emails. They worked extremely well with our accountant and the only thing for us to do was to sign the electronically provided paperwork. Should you need to hire a Realtor, look no further. We highly recommend Team Donovan. Yves G - Ontario - Ca
Cannot fault them in any way. Exceptional professional service. Guided us through the process. Cannot thank them enough. Michael W - U.K
Fast and exceptionally easy. Denise L - Ontario, CA
I found the whole process very professional. Although the house took longer to sell than I originally thought, and didn't quite achieve the price I thought I'd get, I was kept up to date at all times with the process, and with the factors that affected the market. I would have no hesitation in recommending Team Donovan for sale or purchase and if I decided to get involved in property in the Orlando region in the future I would definitely use Team Donovan again. Helen T - U.K
I worked with Dan Palmer during this process. I have never worked with such a wonderful real estate agent before. He watched out for me and my interests every step of the way and has offered assistance even after the closing. He recommended reliable individuals for inspection, insurance, etc. He remained responsive throughout all of our communications (email, phone) and maintained a great level of communication not only with me but with the sellers' agent and even my mortgage lender (during some issues we -- as a group -- had with the appraisal of the property). 

Dan is trustworthy, kind, calm, and a total gentleman in all his dealings. I would recommend him very highly to anyone interested in purchasing or selling a home. I'm very happy to have selected Team Donovan as my agency and feel fortunate to have worked with Dan. Sevil S - Orlando
Seamless management of the sale of my property, very impressed. Pat J - U.K
We found the whole process went smoothly and we were surprised how quickly things were sorted out. Team Donovan were excellent in liaising with all parties involved and keeping us updated at all stages. Would definately recommend. Teresa L - U.K
Very professional approach throughout the process, everything went smoothly with no unexpected hitches.
Overall, very happy with the experience culminating in a successful outcome. Bryan S - U.K
Extremely helpful we dealt mostly with Dan and Marilyn and both exceeded expectations. the communication from both was great. David K - N.Y
I have found Team Donovan to be friendly while being business like in their approach and execution. Every communication was very promptly followed up and replied to. Their advice was straightforward and when difficulties arose they were most helpful. Every step from listing to closing was made smooth and straightforward for us.
I could not have asked for any better service. John M - U.K.
Very positive experience. M.D - Ontario
After having our property on the market for well over a year with other realtors its fair to say that James and the rest of Team Donovan provided a very good experience for us. They delivered what they said they could (a higher price would have been better but they can't control the market) and dealt with us in a prompt, efficient and friendly manner.

I have no hesitation in recommending them.  Paul P - U.K.
Outstanding 5 star service providing a seamless experience in selling the house and repatriating the funds. We received two above asking price offers within 24 hours of the house being placed of the market ; delighted with the service, excellent communication and truly superlative negotiating skills provided by Team Donovan. James H - U.K.
Very professional in their handling of villa sale. Great communication, very satisfied. Kevin T - Ireland
Effective, efficient, prompt service from beginning to end. The service was very personal & I never felt nervous despite working from the UK throughout the process. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend TD to others. Nigel B - Kent - UK
A very professional and accountable team. As a foreign seller, it's what you need.  Jeffery S
Sold in one day speaks for itself many thanks from my wife and I. Keith P
We thought buying a property in Florida would be very difficult without being able to view the property first. Although we know most areas well, having visited almost annually over the last ten years, Dan Palmer made our life very easy. He gave us an honest opinion on the various properties we thought might be the one and found time to visit the few we shortlisted, take further photographs and help us make the final decision.
He always reacted quickly to our various emailed questions / queries prior to and after our purchase and always had time to speak to me on the phone. Philip C
The Team were in constant contact with me, and assisted me through every stage of the process.
There service is first class, and I would not hesitate to recommend them. Jim C - ( Watersong Resort )
I found Team Donovan extremely professional. During the initial stages when determining the marketing price I found the advice refreshingly honest. Thereafter the sales team presented as thorough, professional and on top of everything. I received regular updates and staff were always on hand to answer any queries we had. The team created what was a relatively stress -free experience. Well Done to you all. Winston C
We were very pleased with Team Donovan and their professionalism in the sale of our condo. Sara F

James was extremely knowledgable in every aspect of the home selling process and I knew I could comfortably put 100% of my trust in him from day one. He was able to fairly, appropriately, and quickly list and negotiate the sale of my home with my best interests always at the forefront. I will definitely be using Team Donovan for any and all future real estate endeavors.

Team Donovan were very professional and sold our house quickly. Tracy W
Incredible service. I received nothing but exemplary advice from the start to the end of the selling procedure. Excellent listing, satisfying negotiation, constant communication during closing and excellent after care. Thanks James & Marilyn David N
We are very impressed with Team Donovan.... Today we have completed the sale of our Villa in Kissimmee.....A Big Thank you to Stephen James and Marilyn who have kept us up to date throughout the process and have walked us through all the paperwork plus organised all the steps for us to to make it an easy transition. We really are delighted that from beginning to end it took just over 2 weeks. We would recommend them without hesitation for their professionalism, knowledge and understanding. Keith and Patricia smile emoticon Patricia S
Fantastic stress free service from start to finish. Highly recommended. Paula C
Dan Palmer, from Team Donovan, was our realtor through out our home search process. It was a long process because we had some very specific requirements for our new home. 

Dan showed a level of customer service above and beyond our expectations. He educated us on the process and was always an advocate for us in every step of the way. It made finding our dream home a great experience. 

I would highly recommend Team Donovan in any Real Estate endeavor. They will ensure you get what you want and help you through out the process ensuring you have somebody to back you up. Guario R
What a fantastic company to deal with.

As a couple from the UK buying our first property in the US. They turned what could have been a difficult process into a pleasure.

I liked the look of the website and signed up for the email updates. 

Dan Palmer was our realtor and he went above and beyond what I would have expected. 
When he showed us properties, I liked that he pointed out the possible problems as well as the good points. He gives the impression that nothing is too much trouble even coming out on weekends answering queries I had by email and phoning us in the UK to explain in detail points I'm sure I should have know. His patience was much appreciated.
He gave us advice on currency transfers, contractors, accountants and taxes. All of which helped sooth any jitters we may have felt.
Marilyn too kept us updated all along with the paperwork I needed helped when I got confused and answered all my stupid question promptly and professionally.

The bottom line is I can't recommend this company too highly.
