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 significant life event requires early and proper planning. On average we meet with our clients 6-12 months prior to them selling their home.
The Donovan Team welcomes the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your specific real estate goals. We break taking a new listing into three steps.
Step one: we will meet with you at your home to discuss your motivation for selling, tour your home, and discuss our marketing game plan, (please note we do not ask you to sign anything at this meeting).
Step two: now that we have reviewed your home in detail we can now do a market analysis to determine where you stand in today’s market place. This analysis includes sold comps for your community as well as homes that are active, under contract, or recently withdrawn. Additionally, we will provide you with valuable statistics for the listing’s within your community. Finally, we will provide you with a recommended list price range, an estimated sales price, and an estimated net sheet which will include your mortgage payoff and all closing cost associated with the sale of your home.
Step three: once you have reviewed the market analysis and if you have decided that now is the right time for you to list your property, we will come out to sign the listing paperwork, discuss showings, and answer any questions you may have.
