“Amy was the best.  She helped my husband and I purchase our first house.  She made everything easy for us and made sure we understood the entire process.  Love her.  Will only use her for future endeavors.” . . . . Hannah

“Amy was awesome to work with.  She worked very hard making the process of buying a home as smooth and understandable as possible.  I was so impressed with her professionalism and attention to detail.  At the same time she

was extremely friendly, caring and honest.  I wouldn’t hesitate to use Amy again as my Realtor.”….Ron

Our first time home buying experience with Amy was nothing short of amazing. Amy came recommended to us from several friends. She worked with us to schedule home viewings (which were a little tricky during the COVID-19 pandemic). Things we especially tricky since we were relocating from the Bay Area and were only available to look at houses on Saturday/Sunday. She helped us to narrow down our search since we weren't really sure what we were looking for. Amy took the time to get to know us and our preferences! By our second day together she had us dialed in. After looking at houses on 3 weekends we found our dream home. During the closing process Amy was very patient answering all our questions and following up with us to make sure we had all our ducks in a row for a quick close. We truly had a wonderful experience with Amy. We would absolutely recommend Amy to anyone looking to purchase as home in the area. After we closed Amy also helped us with recommendations for house & carpet cleaners. She truly went above and beyond to make sure we were happy in our new home!....Ashlie from Roseville

"We were very fortunate to work with Amy throughout the entire undertaking of finding and buying our home.  We were living overseas and preparing for a return move to California, during which Amy remained in contact with us as we narrowed down the potential locations and desired home features.  Once we were in the area, Amy made the search and purchasing process an enjoyable experience.  We never felt Amy was trying to sell us a house, but rather we felt supported as she comfortably led us through a range or options related to specific communities and available properties.  This resulted in our time being respected, our wish-list being given top consideration, and Amy's skills and expertise coming especially into play once we found a home we wanted.  Finding the ideal property was just part of Amy's valuable role in making our home purchase.  In a matter of days the seller went from a position of having taken the property off the market, to wanting a fast escrow completed before the beginning of the year.  All of this occurred during the weeks leading up to the Christmas holidays, and Amy expertly negotiated every aspect of the purchase on our behalf, including dealing with last minute changes and demands that could have derailed the process at any point.  Because of Amy's extensive real estate skills, professional persistence and personal kindness, we are enjoying our home and thankful we found someone of Amy's caliber to lead us through the experience!"....Jane and Dan from Loomis

Working with Amy is a buyers dream, we were relocating from another part of the state and Amy made house hunting such a pleasurable experience. Organized, attention to detail, and knowledge of the area is what you will get working with Amy. Amy goes the extra mile from start to finish, our highest recommendation to our forever real estate agent.........Sharon from Folsom

“I listed a single resident house with Amy Donovan.  She arranged for an appraisal and we set a price.  After having an open house, the first offer was accepted with a short escrow period.  Amy Donovan made many trips to the property for various inspections.  The meetings were convenient to sign all required forms, they were done correctly the first time.  The sale process went smoothly and closed escrow in a very short time.  I would recommend Amy Donovan and use her services in the future.”….Jimmy

“Amy was by far the most hardworking no nonsense Realtor I have ever worked with.  She had open houses every weekend, with cookies.  I love Cookies.  And just made things happen and got our house sold.  I loved working with her. I’m going to use her again soon!”….Jeff and Sarah

"I cannot express enough of the gratitude and appreciation that we have for Amy's dedication, competence, knowledge she had in selling our home and helping us purchase our new home.  Her attention to detail and her depth of resources were a tremendous help in getting our house ready to sell.  It only took one open house to get it sold!  Her availability and persistence made all the difference in finding us the perfect house in our desired area.  While in escrow, her follow through and updates continued and confirmed that we were in good hands.  Our family is so grateful every day to be in our happy home thanks to Amy!"....Amy B.

"We had a great experience buying with Amy.  She held our hand through every step of the process, in spite of a difficult seller and their tenant that occupied the property.  Amy was always available and pleasant to work with; we will definitely be calling Amy for our next purchases!"......John

"Amy has represented us on several transactions, for both the perspective of the buyer as well as the seller.  There is a million things that could go wrong and prevent an escrow from not closing.  But Amy's tenacity, persistence, attention to detail, and willingness to go the extra mile and simply work hard, allowed us to "get the ball in the end zone.".........L.R  from Penryn

"I was referred to Amy by a friend of mine.  Amy helped me find and buy my first home.  She walked me through everything and was available for me with all my dumb questions.  She never once made me feel dumb.  We had a lot of good laughs and not only did I find the perfect home, but I found a new friend!  She is currently working with my brother in finding him his first home.  She is a great Realtor and she honestly wants the best for each buyer or seller.  The document signing was simple and she made sure I was on track to close on time.  I trusted her opinion in my investment because she was knowledgeable and honest.  She was also firm when dealing with the seller and his "absent" agent, and got the job done.  You can trust these testimony's!  Amy is the BEST!".....Rani

"It was a difficult decision to move my elderly mom into assisted living and sell her home but Amy Donovan made the process easy.  Amy is reliable, thorough, and did everything she could to help my mom with this transition.  Amy took care of everything; most important she was sensitive to the situation and made my mom feel very comfortable throughout the sale, escrow, and closing.  I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a professional, friendly, and caring real estate agent.".....Deanna Hogenboom

I choose Amy Donovan after seeing what an exceptional job she did in selling my mother-in-law's home.  I too was faced with transitioning my mom from her home to assisted living within a very short time frame and it was a little more difficult because my mom lives in Concord.  Amy and her team were outstanding; the listing, open house, offer, escrow, and closing were all done efficiently and with attention to detail.  More importantly I was able to focus on my mom and her transition.  I highly recommend Amy and Donovan Real Estate." ....Mike Hogenboom, Rocklin

"Amy helped us purchase our first rental property and I can't say enough good things about her!  She was incredibly responsive, professional, and knowledgeable.  She is very familiar with the market throughout the greater Sacramento area and was able to show us appropriate properties in a number of different neighborhoods.  She provided important information to us about the properties we were interested in and her knowledge, expertise, and attention to detail made the purchase process a breeze!  We will definitely use her again when we decide to buy or sell."....Donna, El Dorado Hills

"Amy was great!  She kept the entire process moving right along as scheduled.  We were moving out of state so it was important to keep everything on schedule.  Very smooth transaction with no surprises."....Greg, Foresthill

"Before meeting you, Amy Donovan, and talking with you about selling our home we talked with another Real Estate Agent about listing our home for sale.  Needless to say, we were not thrilled with the first agent we spoke to.  However, once we got the opportunity to meet and talk to you, we realized that you were the person we were looking for.  You were polite, professional and personable.  You answered our question and explained a lot of details to us that we did not previously understand.  You did not sugarcoat things or give us the answers we wanted, you explained things and gave us the answers we needed in order to make an informed decision about the sale of our home.  This was the first hime that my husband and I ever bought, we lived in it for over 34 years.  It wasn't exactly easy to make the decision to sell in the first place; ever though we knew we wanted to relocate.  You understood this and helped ease our minds and calmed our nerves through the entire process.  We are very pleased with the outcome of our decision to sell and the way you handled the whole process.  Especially during these trying times of attempting to sell real estate during the current COVID health crisis we were and still are dealing with in California.  We would we honored to refer you to any of our friends and family that might be looking to sell their homes.  Thank you for guiding us through this process and helping us to reach our goal of relocating to Idaho"....Vicki and Tim B.

"Amy was great!  She was always available and responsive.  She kept us informed and was proactive.  She is an expert in the area"......Alisa, Loomis

"My wife and I worked with Amy on selling our house in Granite Bay in the summer of 2023. We weren't anticipating moving yet decided to list our house and needed to move in just a few short weeks. She did an amazing job helping us prepare the house. There's always too much to do and a lot of stress when selling a house and Amy kept the process moving along smoothly. In less than 2 weeks, Amy had the house listed and had an offer within the first couple days. She was pivotal in providing knowledgeable guidance and support each step along the way, and was able to negotiate a mutually beneficial sale. And whenever we hit the inevitable speed bump in the process, Amy always came through with a solution. We are so glad we used Amy as our agent and highly recommend her if you are considering buying or selling a home".......Michael and Nicole
