"very prompt to our phone calls and emails"
My husband and I have always used a family friend as our realtor. She retired recently and we were in need of a realtor to sell our current house. Not knowing anyone else, we did a search on the internet and saw Donny's background. We decided to give him a try. It was the BEST decision we've made. Donny came to our house the next night. He gave us a couple of days to get the house ready. Once we were ready, the ball started rolling quickly. He had the sign out front, used his drone to take aerial pictures, had someone come in to take pictures and a video! WOW, things have sure changed. All the paperwork so far has been processed on line through Doc-U-Sign. No need to take time off of work to sign papers. The following weekend, we had an open house and had multiple offers. Looking for our new home is stressful enough but we haven't had to worry about the sell of our current house because Donny has been taking care of EVERYTHING. He's always available (weekends, nights, etc). He's also very prompt to our phone calls and emails. THANK YOU Donnie!!

"made the process so easy"
This was my first time buying a home and Donny made the process so easy that I was kind of blown away by it. The man must work 23 out of the 24 hours a day. He was available by phone, email and in person when needed. He always kept us updated on the status of our home purchase...especially since the seller's agent was awful to deal with. Through all of that Donny kept his composure and would fight for us every step of the way. He's experienced, knowledgeable and up to date on the applicable real estate laws you need to know. If you are reading this review and wondering if you should contact him or not, I am telling you to do it. I don't write many reviews online but when I do it is because I had an exceptional experience...and sometimes even those experiences don't get a review. Just spend 5 minutes on the phone talking to him and you'll know what I am talking about. I also have Donny lined up to sell my current place while the new house is having some renovations done. I don't like to fix what isn't broken.

"Donny is EXCEPTIONAL"
The one word that best describes Donny is EXCEPTIONAL. I have hired several real estate agents throughout the years but Donny is by far the best and hardest worker I have seen. What first intrigued me about Donny was his capacity for “data mining.” During our initial visit, he was able to retrieve all kinds of data, trends, and trajectories relative to anything I wanted to know about the local real estate environment. We were looking for a house with some very unique combinations. The only match we could find had a very challenging seller and broker behind it, but my wife and I really wanted that particular house. Our offer was not the highest, but because of the way Donny presented it, the seller went with us. Once we entered contract, we discovered multiple issues from the title history to some deception relative to the disclosures. Needless to say, this was a very complicated real estate transaction. Although we had a choice to walk away, we decided to stick with the property. Donny was with us through every step of the process and, as it turns out, he was spot on in his estimate of the repair expense. Initially, the seller insisted he wasn’t going to pay a dime toward the needed repairs but after a two hour phone call with Donny, he agreed to an acceptable amount. Donny's bi-lingual skills were huge asset in the negotiations. Once we closed, Donny didn’t walk away. He procured multiple vendors for floors, paint, general repairs, pool repairs, glass repairs, landscaping repairs, window repairs, and HVAC. I was surprised at the reasonable price relative to the quality of the work by the vendors. This extra work required Donny to be involved in helping us for five weeks after closing. The uniqueness of this transaction required that we have a realtor with significant experience in all facets of real estate. We were fortunate to discover Donny who pays close attention to detail, treats everyone fairly, and communicates and negotiates effectively. Donny did this and more. That is why we would describe him as EXCEPTIONAL!

"professional and efficient"
Donny helped us find our home in Tracy. He is very knowledgeable of the area and was able to find us our perfect home within a week of working with him. He and his team are professional and efficient. He worked around our incredibly busy schedules and was available to answer any and all questions. The services didn't just end because we had purchased the home. He extended many tools to utilize at our discretion to assist with all the small things such as landscaper, pool and other professional referrals.

"very responsive and very knowledgeable"
Donny and team are very responsive and very knowledgeable to the entire purchase and also sales of a home. I really appreciate the responsiveness to my questions, as the home buying process can be very stressful. I have hired Donny and his team for both purchases and sales and have had an excellent experience each time..They take the time to listen to what your needs are and have your best interest at heart! I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience with him each and every time.

"Donny made the sale seamless"
We have enjoyed working with Donny to sell my mom’s property. It was a difficult situation, Donny made the sale seamless. Once all the offers were received, Donny went to work, his suggestion for the best offer, was indeed just that; the timeline of the offers, counters and signed contract happened within two days, we were in contract! Donny continued to keep the sale and closing on track. Donny’s professionalism is superseded, by his personal concern of the situation; he made my mom very comfortable selling her house (a house she lived in for 51 years); he sensed the emotional attachment and handled it with his comforting personality. Donny has gone above and beyond to hit all deadlines.

"knowledgeable, responsive, and thorough"
We had initially started to buy another property with a different realtor and the whole thing went from bad to worse. When we found Donny and another property, everything went perfectly. He was knowledgeable, responsive, and thorough. Even following the purchase he continued to assist us as we found tenants (who also spoke highly of him). He's been absolutely fabulous and we highly recommend Donny!

"Best in the business hands down!"
I have bought and sold 8 or more houses from Donny. He is by far the best I have ever worked with. He knows the market to perfection, has gone the extra mile helping get houses on the market, processes day and night and just been a pure pro. Best in the business hands down!

"very knowledgeable real estate agent"
Donny is a very knowledgeable real estate agent with many years of experience in this field. I can say Donny can get the job done whether if you’re selling or buying. He sold my house to my ideal customer that I know who will take good care of the property. A big round of applause and thanks to Donny who put the WOW in real estate! And yes I would recommend him to anyone. One last thing is that Donny always reply back whether through emails or texts. Thanks again Donny!
