"Donavin did a great job.  He was extremely knowledgable of the area and different properties.  He was very easy to talk to, and made buying a house a fun project.  It was a very "un-sales-like" experience, he merely gave us information and let us decide.  We were first time home buyers, and he helped us decide what would be a good fit for us.  Thanks Donavin!"

Jason and Mackenzie Miller


  "Thank you, Donavin, for your excellent service as our Realtor.  It was great to have an advocate looking out for our best interests.  We sold a home (within 3 days) and bought a home with Donavin.  His professionalism and knowledge were top notch during both transactions.  Donavin gave us some great tips on how to prepare our home to sell and the communication was constant and timely.  The purchase of our home was painless for us, thanks to Donavin's hard work and knowledge.  We would recommend Donavin to anyone.  Thank you, Donavin."   -Jill and Bob Malecha  

"We had a great experience working with you on our home sale. Your initial presentation was professional, honest and relaxed. No high pressure or pie in the sky promises. Once we signed on, you were prompt in getting the house on the market and getting it exposure. We really liked the presence on the web and the virtual tour, we think those were big factors in getting our house sold. Whenever we had a question you responded quickly. I should come up with something you need to improve on but our sale went so well that I can't think of anything.

Thanks for everything!"

Alan and Susie


"Working with Donavin was a real pleasure. He provided us with great information on how to prepare our home to be sold, and wasn't afraid to let us know what worked and what didn't. He was very flexible and looked for our input on how to market our home. His multiple online resources proved to be very valuable. When looking for a new house, he provided us with a binder of all of the places we looked at, and encouraged us to write down what we liked and disliked each place. He also provided us with his input on what he thought the strengths and weaknesses of each place were. He was very willing to work with us during the week in addition to on the weekends. We had a wonderful experience working with Donavin. We have recommended and will continue to recommend him to our friends and family. The speed in which our house sold was amazing and the house we got into is wonderful! Thank you Donavin!"

"I feel I had an excellent experience working with Donavin.  Whenever I needed to get in touch with him, he answered the phone or was quick to call back.  I never felt that I was waiting on a response from him.  I felt he was professional, honest, and was exactly what we were expecting. The marketing of our home was wonderful.  He provided access to our home from so many different avenues I felt it was a real plus.  The great pictures, virtual tour and web based marketing are beyond what many other realtors offer.  I felt that this helped in the home selling process.  I would recommend Donavin to my friends for anyone wanting to sell or buy a home.  I had a wonderful experience working with him and would not hesitate to work with him again."

Donavin kept me well informed of what he was doing for me every step of the way.  I truly felt well taken care of.  He’s made my first home purchase a pleasant experience. I would recommend him to anyone, but especially to the first time home buyer. He will take care of ya!  Thanks Donavin!"

"Donavin always made himself available to us whenever we had any questions or concerns. We also appreciated him taking us through the house when our family was in town...even though we had already decided to buy it and he was busy that day. We thought everything went very smoothly and we are happy with our new home!"

Larry and Amber Bathen

"I enjoyed working with Donavin, he is very knowledgeable when it comes to marketing, selling, and when house hunting. Donavin was very patient with me which made things pleasant. He searched many areas to find me a house that I liked. Donavin is a great Realtor and could answer every question I asked. We had some good laughs and we saw some unforgettable houses. I would absolutely refer people to Donavin! My experience was good. Donavin was always available to answer my questions, always answered his phone, and so patient with me. He even brought treats and beverages when we looked at houses. I enjoyed looking at houses and, in my opinion, think we both had some good laughs and some fun. I love my new house! Donavin, thank you for all your help and Mindi, my daughter, will be contacting you to find a house for her. Great job and thanks again!"

"We had a great experience working with Donavin on the purchase of our rental property. He was very diligent at seeking properties that fit our criteria and never neglected to do the proper research before bringing us to view the properties. After spending many afternoons looking at homes we finally decided on the perfect rental property for us. Donavin worked hard to to make the transaction as smooth as possible, and put in extra effort given the seller's didn't have their own realtor representing them. Overall our experience was great and I would use his real estate service again.

Donavin did a good job at:
-Searching for appropriate properties
-Being timely and reliable
-Follow-up with Sale

I would definitely refer any of my friends and family to Donavin. He proved to be very trustworthy and reliable.

Thanks You for working with me!"

Nicole Heimer


"Donavin was very easy and willing to work with us. He was knowledgeable regarding everything to the purchase of our new home. We believe he is very honest and was very helpful. Throughout our search Donavin was always very reliable whenever we needed information or advice. He was always prompt with appointments and the information that he provided was very organized. Both Ryan and I will definitely recommend him to others in need of buying or selling. 

Thank You for your help!"

Ryan and Heidi Sabyan


"Donavin is an excellent communicator! He has a very rare ability to make people feel comfortable and at ease with the process of buying or selling real estate. Donavin relates very easily to a wide array of people and I think that lends itself to his success. He is a person that is genuinely interested in the needs of his clients and he will wrap himself in the process by making his clients needs, his own.

 Sometimes it is very hard to pin point what exactly it is that makes an individual like Donavin so successful, but whatever the culmination of talents that Donavin has, it is makes for something very special.

As the Burnsville Manager at Prudential Metrowide Realty and knowing a lot of Realtors both inside and outside our office, I can honestly say that Donavin posses the necessary skills to be amongst the best in our industry."

"We wanted to write to express our gratitude for the diligent and dependable service provided by Donavin. Your service is certainly praiseworthy.

Based on my experience, you and your staff are welcoming and energetic in listening to and meeting the expectations and needs of your clients. I recommend your services to anyone interested in acquiring real estate in the Minneapolis area.

We were able to locate and close a deal in a limited time frame. Mr. Prescott was receptive and genuinely interested in locating the "right property" for me and my  family. We got a great deal on our house and wanted to thank you. Moreover, he remained confident in us as serious buyers and invested a lot of time in emailing and faxing information regarding properties in our price range. We did not feel any pressure to buy and we were encouraged by this patience. 

I respectfully submit this letter of recommendation and gratitude and welcome anyone to contact me if they have questions."

"Working with Donavin was an excellent experience. He was professional yet fun; he was obviously knowledgeable on the market and the process of buying a home, but explained things in terms I could understand. Donavin went above and beyond. He was always accommodating and flexible with scheduling. He listened to what I liked and didn't like about properties, helping to make my search more efficient and successful.  I would highly recommend Donavin because was easy to work with, and made me feel confident about the home I was buying. I liked that we spend enough time at each property, to be sure whether or not I was truly interested in each place.

Thanks Donavin! I love my new home. I couldn't have done it with out you."

Kira Engelke

"We enjoyed working with Donavin a great deal. He was very thorough and explained everything regarding the sale of our home very clearly. He worked very hard marketing our property and it paid off in the end. If I buy or sell another home I will definitely use Donavin again."

Dan Jochum and Donna Todoroff


"Buying our home was a very quick and smooth transaction. There was not a lot of stress attached to it. Donavin was available when we wanted to see houses. He went the extra mile and when making our offer he had tea with the seller. Some might dread a 45 minute car ride with someone you don't know, but Donavin is very down to earth and easy to talk to. The whole transaction went perfectly."

Rob and Shana Harbeintner


"Buying a home was a lot easier than I thought it would be. It really helps to work with someone who knows what they are doing. Donavin did a great job in finding us many homes to look at and seemed to make it a priority to find us a house. I think Donavin did an excellent job and I wouldn't change a thing. We will be using Donavin for our future realty needs."

Nick and Lauren Vosepka


"Donavin and Brad were very professional from the start. They had a comprehensive market analysis and were very upfront about what the expectations were for pricing and selling a home this late in the season. They were willing to accommodate my needs for open houses and showing, and their staff was very courteous about notifying me of potential showings. Overall I have been extremely satisfied with their efforts on my behalf.

They did a good job at setting up expectations about the selling price given the current market conditions. Because we started out in a good range, there wasnít any need to pressure me to continually drop the price to remain competitive. You were also very helpful in your suggestions for staging the home. The virtual tour looked professionally done, and I received positive comments from my family that checked it out.

You both were very helpful and understanding of my constantly being out of town and difficult sometimes to get in touch with."

Nancy Piehl


"We were very pleased with the service we received from Donavin. He laid out a very thorough plan to market and sell our home. He secured a qualified buyer within the first month and continued to walk us all through the rest of the process. His attention to detail was priceless. Thanks for all your help. We would recommend Donavin to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house.
