Highly likely to recommendIt is with great pleasure that we recommend Duncan Donahue as a real estate broker. We chose Duncan to market our Brookline condominium after receiving market evaluations from two other area agents. Although the other agents provided comprehensive evaluations, we felt that Duncan’s marketing approach meshed well with our understanding of the current market trends for a newly renovated property. Beyond the fact that Duncan had recently sold another unit in our building, it was his broad experience selling property throughout the metropolitan Boston area that was most appealing. That said, he is comfortable marketing property to a wide variety of potential buyers. Duncan is professional, intelligent and well-educated. All of these factors were immediately apparent upon meeting him.
Our request for a market evaluation was met with a very quick turn-around time. It was professionally presented using power point, eliminating the need to constantly flip pages of recent sales and listings and allowed all concerned to look at the materials simultaneously. He promptly listed our property to capture the end of the spring market. His suggestion to stage our unit was also beneficial and was entirely arranged by his office. His collaboration with his colleague Patti Fine was seamless. Both were constantly aware of our needs. From beginning to end, we appreciated his quick response to buyer interest.
Duncan has integrity and clearly takes prides in a job well done. He has excellent interpersonal communication skills with an innate capacity to clarify and confirm his client’s needs with the added bonus of warmth and a sense of humor. Duncan possesses the instincts born of experience and natural ability that benefit both client and buyer. His approach to negotiating a sale is reasonable, effective and persuasive.
On a personal note, Duncan was extremely kind and compassionate during a very sad time for our family. While sensitive to our situation, he maintained his professionalism and secured an agreement, selling our property. We were so grateful for his expertise that eliminated extraneous concerns as we gave our full attention to personal matters. He did a fabulous job and I would not hesitate to recommend Duncan as a person and as a real estate agent.
