The Donovan Team
“Your Trusted Advisors”
A significant life event requires early and proper planning. On average, we meet with our clients 6-12 months prior to them buying or selling their home.
The Donovan Team is happy to invest our time and energy to provide you with the market data, statistics, and hard numbers you need to start planning for this exciting life event.
We feel it is a great privilege to represent our clients during such a critical time in their life. A time that requires expert negotiators, highly-skilled communicators and a team that is committed to providing exceptional service.
The Donovan Team looks forward to the opportunity to meet with you and outline a game plan tailored to your specific real estate needs and goals. In the meantime, we encourage you to get to know The Donovan Team and learn how our services can benefit you.
YOUR TRUSTED ADVISORS
The phrase YOUR TRUSTED ADVISORS, is not just a catchy marketing slogan to us, it’s a philosophy, a way of doing business. We feel these two words most accurately describe what The Donovan Team is all about. The word trust is defined as a belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, and effective. The word advise means to give advice to someone; to recommend or suggest something; to give information to someone.
We go to great lengths to demonstrate our high level of character and competence thus allowing us to earn your trust. We want you to know and feel that we always have your best interests in mind. As your advisor we will walk you through the sale or purchase of your home, providing you with our professional recommendations and insightful market data, but the final decision will always be yours to make. Our clients are confident that our recommendations are in line with our number one goal, which is to help them make the best decisions for them and their family. This confidence has allowed them to make the right decisions time and time again.
As agents we are all independent contractors and it’s up to the individual agent or team to set their level of business ethics and customer service. Therefore, you really want to feel confident about the individual or team that you choose to represent you. This being said, we are fortunate to be backed by the most successful real estate company in the world.

A RELATIONAL APPROACH
We handle each transaction with the utmost care and professionalism. We are 100% committed to doing business by referral and providing our clients with exceptional service. We are not interested in closing a transaction, collecting a commission check and moving onto the next one. Our goal is to not only help our client’s during a transaction but before and after as well, to provide the service that will keep our clients coming back, and referring their family and friends to us.
This can be seen through the complimentary buyer consultations and market analysis we provide to ensure our clients have all the information they need to make an educated decision on each and every aspect of the sale or purchase of their home. It can also be seen through our client appreciation program which involves house-warming parties for our buyers, seasonal gifts, useful market information, client appreciation parties, and more. Our greatest occupational accomplishments are the long-lasting personal and professional relationships we form with our clients and their families.
STRENGTH IN NUMBERS
Here at The Donovan Team we believe strongly in the philosophy that there is strength in numbers. Jason & Johnny share all of their buyers and sellers regardless of price point or location. Generally speaking one of them will take the lead with the client but the other one will be integrated throughout the process. We go to great lengths to keep all members of the team well informed to ensure we all provide exceptional service to the client. Additionally, there is an ebb and flow to a real estate transaction and we are very respectful of this. For example, if one team member shows you the home that you are interested in, he would likely be the one to meet with you to put together the offer. Barring someone being sick or on vacation we would never jump in and out of a transaction at an inappropriate time. Krissy will be involved with every client transaction in a supportive role insuring a smooth transaction and that everything is completed in a timely manner.
The three main benefits of working with a team are more ideas/ professional experience, more accessibility to our clients, and more energy.
More Ideas/ Professional Experience: The Donovan Team works hard to make sure our clients receive the best ideas that originate from team synergy.
More Accessibility: Because there are three of us we are generally able to be available for our client’s and are flexible with our clients schedules. Generally Jason works Saturday’s and Johnny works Sundays so we have each day of the weekend covered for our clients but we are also able to shut down and have time with our family.
More Energy: Once again sharing our clients allows us to get the necessary R&R which helps us achieve the ultimate goal of bringing “high energy” to all of our clients and our team.
