"When we decided to sell our home, we did a ton of research and read a lot of reviews about local real estate agents. We met with several very qualified agents before choosing someone to represent us. We were immediately impressed by Jason Donovan. Our gut feeling turned out to be correct and we are so happy we chose The Donovan Team! Johnny and Keely were both very helpful throughout the process as well. Each of them remained calm and professional throughout the entire process. We found their advice to be knowledgeable, timely, and sound. If you're looking to buy or sell, I'm positive The Donovan Team will do right by you."

“We are very thankful to The Donovan Team for their help in selling our home. Our property looked its very best in our brochure and online, which resulted in a steady flow of potential buyers. They helped us identify necessary fixes and upgrades and find the right contractors for each job. We felt well represented in the negotiation process, and they went above and beyond in helping with our move out of state. Throughout the process, we could count on Jason and Johnny to be available, honest and helpful. The Donovan Team assisted us in purchasing the property originally, so we can confidently recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”

“We highly recommend using the Donovan Team to sell and or purchase your home. We felt very comfortable with their philosophy from day 1. We had our house listed a year prior and it did not sell. Jason listened to all of our concerns that had stemmed from the previous listing. We came up with a game plan and time frame that we were comfortable with. Jason and Johnny stayed in constant communication with us every step of the way and were always there to answer any questions we had. Johnny helped us out with the negotiations on our new home and ensured everything went off without any hiccups leading up to our settlement day. They are a 1st class operation, and we will definitely use them for any future real estate needs that we have.”

“Jason and Johnny helped us with our first home purchase in 2010 and it was an easy decision on who to use when we decided to move up the property ladder in 2013. Having used them for the purchase of two homes and the sale of one we have been nothing but pleased. They have always made us feel like we were their top priority and when it came time to negotiating they were able to get us top dollar on our sale and a better deal than thought possible on our purchase. They are HIGHLY recommended!

“Jason was very helpful when I sold my house. I live overseas and counted on him to oversee every aspect, from getting the keys from the tenant, to arranging for cleaning and painting, to advertising and then selling. Jason was uber responsive, and kept in full contact with me throughout the entire process. I fully recommend him, and the Donovan Team.”

“After raising our family in this house, it was time to downsize. Our son recommended the Donovan Team to sell our house. He said "Mom and Dad, they are the best." This turned out be good advice. After evaluating our house, Jason Donovan of The Donovan Team advised us how to prepare the house for selling. Then The Donovan Team went to work to promote our house to sell promptly.”

"We worked with Jason to buy this property and to sell our previous home. Jason stuck with us through an extended period while we waited for life and market conditions to feel just right for our move. Shortly after moving, we listed our old home and had immediate offers. The team’s use of digital marketing really paid off. We couldn't believe how quickly things worked out."

“Jason and Johnny were amazing in helping me sell my house. There were a lot of issues, i.e. a difficult tenant and a mortgage in default, but they were very understanding and did everything to ensure we got the best offer with the least amount of money out of pocket for closing. They always kept us informed about the processes involved and never once made us feel like our difficult situation was a lost cause. I would (and have) recommend them to friends, family and anyone in between.”

"Jason, Johnny and Keely are extremely knowledgeable on all aspects of the housing market and always put their clients first. We bought out first home in 2017 and when it came time to sell our first home in 2021, we immediately contacted The Donovan Team. Our home was marketed beautifully, and we accepted an offer the first day that it was on the market. We found our forever home in our ideal area and The Donovan Team was able to get us the home under asking. They really go above and beyond for their clients and we can’t thank them enough!"

“I recently sold a house with The Donovan Team and while this can be a very stressful process, I felt very confident by partnering with Jason, Johnny and Keely. They was candid, provided great feedback, helped clearly explain all details and managed the actual sale negotiation brilliantly. In addition, they were extremely responsive to every one of my questions, no matter how small. I am extremely certain The Donovan Team will be the right partner to help you navigate through either selling or buying a home in the greater Annapolis area.”

“My wife and I worked with Jason Donovan and the Donovan team to sell our house in Bowie. We were first time home sellers. Jason and team were knowledgeable about the process and the market and put our mind at ease. We listed our home just after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and on the same day Maryland issued stay at home orders. This scenario was new to all and we didn’t know how it would play out. Despite the uncertainty, Jason offered sound advice and we crafted a plan to move forward. We got multiple offers and were under contract within 10 days with a 30 day closing period. Best possible outcome. Would highly recommend Jason and his team.”

“If you are looking for an amazing team that works together to make the experience of selling your home as easy as possible, contact The Donovan Team. They alleviated any and all stress we had when it came to selling our home, making the process as easy as possible. With their expertise we were able to sell our home within 5 days. I highly recommend them to all my family and friends.”

“Jason and Johnny are the definition of true professionals. They are both extremely knowledgeable, hard working individuals that create a very dynamic team. There is absolutely no drop off working with either. Both maintained the same extremely high level of service the entire way through the sale of our old home to the purchase of our new home. Jason and Johnny were always readily available to answer any questions or concerns we had going through the entire process. Now a days its such a rarity to find motivated, honest, trustworthy people you'd want to hire to clean your house much less entrust them to advise you through one of the biggest if not the biggest decision and purchases you will make in your lifetime. The Donovan team gives you two of those people for the price of one.”

Kevin and Nicole

"Jason and Johnny had knowledge in every city we looked. They were flexible, available and every time took the time to listen to us. Provided advice when needed and really just made us feel secure in our thoughts. I also sold my house with them. They also sold my home, and the team surpassed my expectations even more than I thought! My favorite quality is Jason came to my home assessed it, but took the time to explain the whole process to me from the other perspective. It was clear, concise and used current examples to relate to. The photography and video that they made for my home, made me want to buy it all over again and overpay! It truly was amazing the quality that I experienced."

“We have had the pleasure of working with Jason and The Donovan Team on several Real Estate transactions over the last several years. A few years ago they assisted with the purchase of acreage in Calvert County and most recently with the sale of our home and the subsequent purchase of a new home. Jason was our main point of contact but we got the added bonus of working with Johnny as well. The entire team made themselves readily available to address concerns, answer questions and coordinate the sale/purchase of both homes. As our plans changed multiple times throughout the process, they remained flexible and supportive. They were a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond throughout the entire home selling/buying process. Words can’t adequately express our gratitude and admiration for Jason and Johnny.”

"We put Jason and Johnny through the ringer looking for a house. It took us two years and some complicated wrangling, but they stuck through it. They remained responsive to the end. I enjoyed working with them and appreciated their understanding of the market very much. They also sold our condo a year prior to our purchase of the house. I have to say that the brochures they made for it looked astounding and they’re pricing advice was spot on. Thank you’s to both Jason and
Johnny."
