From the first email request for more information until the day of closing, Team Donovan were exceptional throughout. We were kept informed and updated through each step of the sales process and could not have asked for anything more.  James H - Belfast- U.K
The entire process from the listing to the showings was seamless. I was put at ease knowing that the agents were working together in a hassle free way given that I am living in another country. I would definitely use the Team Donovan services again and would highly recommend them Zena S - Ontario - Canada
Very professional team from putting the house on the market to the closing date. Graham C - Aldershot - U.K
We were very grateful to Team Donovan, not just for selling our house, but for the information provided throughout. Having used other realtors in the past, there is no doubt this was a far superior service. It was reassuring to hear on a regular basis that indeed people were showing interest in the house, even if they were not buying. We really felt that Team Donovan wanted to sell the house, whereas in the past, it just seemed very lacklustre. After it sold, Zach could not be faulted in keeping us informed of what we needed to do, and what would be happening at each stage of the process, which is very helpful when the process is completely different to the one you are used to. So, all in all, very satisfied customers! Tony J - Midlothian - U.K
Selling a home can be quite stressful, Team Donovan made the whole experience smooth, easy and pain free. From our initial conversation when we was thinking about selling all the information was laid on the table of what we needed to consider which helped us make the decision to sell. Once the house went on the market we was fortunate enough to have a couple of offers within a few days, talking through the options with James was really helpful, which helped us make our decision. Following accepting the offer we were kept fully upto date with the proceedings by Zach, any question we had was answered quickly. The whole team made the whole process seem less, would have no hesitation in using their services again. Thank you Team Donovan, great job!! Andrea K - London - U.K
It was a pleasure working with Steve, James and Zach on the sale of my condo in Orlando. They clearly knew the market, appropriate pricing and potential buyers, as my unit sold in one day. As I do not live in Florida everything was done via email but the team was ' on it' in keeping me informed every step of the way and making the process smooth and painless. I will not hesitate to use Team Donovan in future.  Ann M - San Jose - California
Not having sold a property in the US previously, we were unaware of the procedures and somewhat apprehensive. We did not need to worry as Team Donovan put our minds at rest every step of the way. We cannot thank them enough and a special thank you to James and Zach. Can highly recommend Team Donovan. Ian B - West Sussex - U.K
I found Team Donovan helpful in all aspects, from arranging solicitors ect, and sorting out all dues owing and getting them paid, they took out the strain's and stresses that I was expecting to endure, Thanks to Team Donovan, selling my house became an exciting and pleasant journey rather than a stressful one,. 
Once again Team Donovan, thank you, Robert H - Berkshire - U.K
After having our property for sale with a different agent for 12 months with no luck we were recommended to team Donovan. From the start we were keep informed on any viewings and feedback received. The property was sold within the week of marketing and the whole process went very smoothly. We would like to thank the whole team for their proffesionalism from start to finish and would recommend them to any perspective seller Graham H - Enfield - U.K
The sale of our home was straight forward and Team Donovan made everything fall in place. We found Dan very helpful when looking at other properties to buy. Gary S - St Johns - Canada
We worked with Dan Palmer from Team Donovan, and could not be more pleased with the entire process. Granted, we only looked at houses for about 4 hours, and found the one we wanted right away. Dan and Zach went over and above keeping us informed of the process, and getting any questions answered. Dan even went so far as to go into the attic with the Inspector, something I am sure most Realtor Agents would never do.
I would highly recommend Team Donovan to any who have the need. Ed M - New York City - New York
Very efficient and knowledgeable service. Would definitely recommend. David A - Twickenham - U.K
We were very pleased with the professional services provided by James and his staff at Team Donovan. Aldo A - Ontario - Canada

Team Donovan was recommended to me by friends who had successfully used their services a few months prior to me placing my property on the market. I initially did not know what to expect with regard to the quality of service that Team Donovan would provide. It did not take me long to realise that I had made the right decision in choosing them to sell my property. My property had only been on the market for a short period of time before I received an offer which I accepted. Throughout the sale process I was kept updated on the progress of the sale. My main contact was through James who I can only describe as a gentleman. It can be a very stressful experience when selling a home when you are on the other side of the Atlantic but with the aid of James and his colleague Zach they eased any concerns I had with professional advice and reassurance. The closing procedure was made simple and stress free the system they use for the transfer of funds is efficient and relatively simple. All in all I am more than pleased I used Team Donovan I would recommmend their services to anyone who is thinking of selling their property in Florida.

Stephen G - Wirral - U.K
Team Donovan are a very professional company and have established a process that works very well for customers who are remote to the region. Simon I - Bucks - U.K
Thanks to Team Donovan for successfully selling my Condo. Murphy H - Ajax - Ontario, Canada
Very good communication throughout the process. Clear advice, and nice to get phone calls when required even though we are in the UK!
Thanks to Steve for first contact, James and Zach during the sale. Glyn B - Middlesex - U.K
Friendly and efficient. Made it easy for us. All we had to do was sit back and sign a few forms. Thank you. Hugh H - Aberdeenshire - U.K

Very happy with Team Donovan....our villa sold within days of listing and achieved a sale price above asking.
Whole process went very smoothly and with closing documents processed via internet, made our involvement as a UK based seller, very easy and stress free.
I have no hesitation in recommending Team Donovan.

Leon W - Waltham Abbey - U.K
Team Donovan are extremely good at what they do, from the monthly property sales data updates to the initial contact regarding selling my home right through to closing and then offering a currency transferring option exclusive to Team Donovan to convert funds into my UK bank account at preferable rates. It all went so smoothly

They didn't bombard me with lots of information, it was concise. I appreciated that as some Realtors in the Disney area are a bit over the top and are obviously just after your money. Team Donovan are Realtors providing a first class service and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them as the leaders in their field in Orlando and beyond.

A special high five to Zach, for being very patient with me as a novice seller of US property, your advice and guidance helped me through the process!

There are a lot of Realtors jostling for position in the Disney area. Team Donovan are the best! I'm happy to give them a five star rating! Anthony R - London - U.K

All I can say is "wow"...!! From getting the offer to closing in 10 days is unbelievable. When we bought the condo 6 years ago via TD we were very impressed with Dan and his professional manner and then our selling process has been equally as impressive from the day we had our chat with Steve through to today. Thanks to all at Team Donovan for yours, and their efforts. Much appreciated. We have loved our time in Florida and it is only the distance and travel time from Hong Kong that has led us to sell. We have a beautiful condo here on the Gold Coast in Australia where we are spending more and more of our time, so selling and using TD was the right decision.! Should we ever need property in Florida again then you guys would be our first call.!

Paul S - Hong Kong
I can't thank you enough. You were there for us every step of the way, making what could have been very difficult and stressful experience for us into one that ran extremely smoothy. Keeping us fully informed from start to finish. Thank you and to all your team.

Beverly A - Gloucester - U.K

It was particularly good to be kept informed at every stage.
A special word for Zach who was exceptionally helpful.

John D - Perthshire - U.K
Thank you for all your help in a process that I knew nothing about. I was kept up-to-date with the whole process and felt I was given good advice throughout. The speed of the sale was completely unexpected. Thank you. Ann H - Stockport - U.K
Outstanding professionals! Highly recommended! From initial contact to closing, Team Donovan was there. Every aspect was handled electronically. Frank C - Cape Charles - Virginia
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 - Canada
Dan was excellent throughout this process. He provided great guidance and recommendations and helped make the process as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend him. Thanks! Jason M - Omaha - Nebraska
Great service from Team Donovan.
All went smoothly and was great to have very informed agent to work with. Burnell L - Saskatoon - Canada
Very impressed with your company's sales technique! Your marketing strategy is spot on and professional. Your team made the sale easy for us living abroad.  Lea V - Norway
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.

Mike B - Ontario - Canada

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
Exceeded Expectations! Phil E - Peterborough - U.K
FIRST CLASS SERVICE WOULD NOT HESITATE TO USE AGAIN. Derek G - Dumbartonshire - U.K

Your whole team was outstanding and we got a good price for our home.

Thank You All-At Team Donovan

Ron M - Troy - Michigan


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 - Connecticut
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 - Connecticut - 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 - Canada
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 - Massachusetts
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 - Maryland - 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 - Canada
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, Florida
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 - New Jersey
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 - Canada
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, Canada
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, Canada
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.

 
Megan W
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
