Seller

We were contemplating selling our home in Sherman Oaks in a year or two (as we are now empty nesters), so it wasn’t even on the market. Donovan and his team approached us very respectfully, saying they had a pre-qualified buyer who was very interested in our neighborhood. Within four days we had a firm offer that exceeded our expectations. The entire process from first contact to escrow closure took place in a month without a hitch. The team was helpful, courteous, and truly went above and beyond to make the experience as easy for us as possible.

When we made the decision to sell our condo and purchase a family home, we started visiting open houses in the area to get to know the current market. By chance, we met Donovan at an open house we dropped in at and we're so glad we did (he was one of the only Realtors®️ who actually followed up with us and remembered us personally) - from there on our buying and selling process was seamless. We both work in the luxury retail and customer service industry and it usually takes a lot to impress us. However, we were very impressed with Donovan's diligence, professionalism, and commitment from beginning to end. He was attentive, highly responsive, listened to our needs, and was well connected and knowledgable in the Sherman Oaks market - exactly what you need in a Realtor®️.

He was attentive, highly responsive, listened to our needs, and was well connected and knowledgable in the Sherman Oaks market - exactly what you need in a Realtor®️. During the selling and buying process, we had full trust and confidence that Donovan had our best interests as his priority. He was not afraid to tell you the good and the bad, regularly kept us up to date with progress, and often had answers to our questions before we had even asked them. Donovan was able to appropriately navigate us to balance the personal and objective sides of the house selling and buying process. Not only is he efficient and experienced in navigating the real estate processes, but he also genuinely cares about his clients and clearly enjoys his job. He regularly went over and beyond to make sure we were happy and that the process was as stress-free as possible. An example of this was on our move-in day. Upon move-in, we realized that the gas had been disconnected at the new home. When Donovan called to wish us luck with the move we had casually mentioned this, within 15 minutes Donovan was at the home and personally helping us to work with the gas company to get everything back in working order and the after-sale service that he didn't need to do, but did because he genuinely cares. Not only is Donovan a great Realtor®️, but he is also a genuine and relatable guy who you will enjoy working with. We would highly recommend Donovan and won't hesitate to use him again in the future.

When selling your home, choosing the right representative is arguably the most important decision you'll make. We interviewed several top producing agents in our area and had some very good experiences with some. But Donovan and Teresa stood alone in terms of their nuanced knowledge of the market, attention to detail, and confidence in their ability to sell our home for top dollar. They delivered on all of their promises and more. During the process, they helped us stage our home, took beautiful photos, and videos, and produced a great description of our property that highlighted its unique attributes. Furthermore, their pre-marketing plan delivered significant interest before we hit the market, resulting in double-digit showings the first day we hit the market. They helped us navigate a couple of false starts with offers that didn't materialize (completely out of their control) and quic…

Furthermore, their pre-marketing plan delivered significant interest before we hit the market, resulting in double-digit showings the first day we hit the market. They helped us navigate a couple of false starts with offers that didn't materialize (completely out of their control) and quickly honed in on the right buyer. Donovan was instrumental in negotiating our deal and kept all parties moving towards a common goal. He navigated a contingency and challenging inspection period and his supreme confidence was invaluable in getting our deal to the finish line. In our opinion, any competent Realtor®️ can list a home and elicit good offers in this market, but the true value in a superstar like Donovan and his team is their ability to navigate the inevitable challenges that always arise when selling prime properties in Los Angeles (hillside inspection issues, older homes with deferred maintenance, delays in closing of escrow, buyer side contingencies, etc.). He made sure the deal did not fall apart at any stage and kept us all focused on the big picture. We highly recommend Donovan, Teresa, and the entire team to anyone looking to sell their luxury property for a great price.

The universe brought Donovan and his team to our doorstep. Literally. We met Donovan over 18 months ago when his teammate Preston Ukra knocked on our door to ask if we had any interest in selling our house. While the market was promising, Donovan correctly didn’t think we could get the ‘pie in the sky’ amount we had thought would be compelling to make us move. Months passed and when he felt the time could be right to meet our expectations, he returned to ask again. And this time around he was the one to set the bar high. Very high. What he felt could be possible was beyond our wildest dreams and sounded impossible but he earned our confidence with his deep understanding of where the market was going and his assurances that he would vet and bring the most serious of buyers to the table. Thanks to his vision, knowledge, and marketing expertise he sold our home in 4 days, at the price he ha…

What he felt could be possible was beyond our wildest dreams and sounded impossible but he earned our confidence with his deep understanding of where the market was going and his assurances that he would vet and bring the most serious of buyers to the table. Thanks to his vision, knowledge, and marketing expertise he sold our home in 4 days, at the price he had projected, and set a record-breaking price per sq. ft for the entire valley. But what he and his team were able to achieve is only half of the story. Who they are is the better part of this story, we truly cannot say enough about Donovan, Preston, and Teresa. They are a dream team of kind, attentive, patient, responsive, positive, professional, available, caring individuals who truly love what they are doing and it shows. We had a 14-day escrow term which you would think would be crazy and chaotic but they managed the entire process as smoothly and seamlessly as you could ever imagine. They made the entire process from start to finish the most positive experience we’ve ever had in selling real estate. We’re sincerely looking forward to working with Donovan and his team again and could not recommend him more highly to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home.
