Donavaun did an excellent job selling my house in Gainesville. He hired a great photographer and presented my home beautifully and listed at an excellent price. Donavaun communicated every step of the way and had my home under contract in less than two weeks. He was always reachable anytime of day and explained everything in a easy to understand way. I would highly recommend Donavaun to any buyer or seller in Alachua county!

07/12/2018 - zoouf22

Donavaun Horne is an exceptional person. He is very helpful, funny, and always on time. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Whenever questions were asked he was quick to answer and very specific and clear.
Thanks Donavaun!

My first home I bought with Donavaun Horne. So glad I found him. He made the experience less daunting than I thought it would be. He is professional and knowledgeable. I appreciate the conversations, feedback, and advices he offered that landed me the home I wanted. He was there for me every step of the way. Thank you!

04/07/2018 - angiegepte1

Donovaum helped us find our forever home. He was very professional and knowledgeable, we closed on time and it felt like it was very easy going from start to finish. He answered all our questions and got all paperwork to us in a timely manner. I will be recommending him to friends and family, Thank you Donovaun!!!

02/28/2018 - zuser20151004103036784

It has been simply fantastic working with Donavaun. It's the first time I've sold a home and he has helped me through the entire process. He's attentive and also very knowledgeable about the market. I really can't recommend him enough.

02/13/2018 - raymond hufford

A fantastic experience from start to finish. Donavaun listened to our wants and needs, added some guidance and input, and we found a great forever home! He's very personable and thoughtful, but not too aggressive as some realtors can be. I will recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

12/21/2017 - Cheryl Courtney

We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Donavaun Horne. We were first-time homebuyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place. From start to finish he was very responsive, kind, and a constant professional. He was very responsive to our needs and was always available when we needed him to be. On top of being exceptionally good at his job he felt like a friend to us. Anyone looking to purchase a home would be blessed to work with Donavaun - the entire team for that matter.

12/19/2017 - Kris Barber

Donavaun is an outstanding real estate agent! He is always available to answer questions & help however he can. He is 100% invested to make sure his clients have a positive experience thru the process of homebuying.
My daughter & I were in and out of FL looking for the right house. We relied heavily on Donavaun’s knowledge of the area & suggestions. He would even go out of his way and revisit a property we were interested in and face time us so we could see items that we had questions about. That is going the extra mile, in my opinion!!
He is honest & puts the needs of his clients as a high priority. There are lots of agents to choose from, but most don’t work nearly as hard to make sure their clients are completely satisfied with the house they purchase. He cares about his clients.
I highly recommend Donavaun - he is top notch!

10/17/2017 - Sophia Pérez and Shanti Cruz

Donavaun's even nature really kept us afloat when my wife Shanti and I were buying our home. There were a few non traditional components to this purchase. We were buying the home we had been renting for almost a year and we needed to act quickly, yet responsibly and as informed as possible. Initially, the listing agent had approached us to represent both sides of the sale. I am grateful we did it go that route as I am confident we would not have been ethnically represented. Donavaun really looked out for us to make sure that we were buying a sound home and that any repairs that needed to be made, were made. There were some intense moments with response times (or lack of- I am trying to be diplomatic about the listing agent) from the sellers side but Donavaun was consistent and honest with us. Our home eventually closed after over 2 months of escrow hell, all of which were made bearable by Donavaun and his calming demeanor.

It is worth mentioning that we rented the home before purchasing it, and as part of the process, many tradespeople had to come into our home which had us on guard as 2 women in a same sex relationship. Donavaun was always affirming and brought only the best tradespeople into our home, and when we could not be there to meet with them, he would show up.

We are so grateful to Donavaun and his team.

Buying a home was not in our plan, but the possibility presented itself and we went with it, and made it come true. But only with Donavaun's support and advocacy through the process!

10/08/2017 - Robin Rolark

Good afternoon,
On the behalf of me and my husband D'metrice we would like to give a BIG thanks to you and your for making this possible for us.
After the experience we had with our previous realtor we didn’t even want to buy anymore. You made it simple and easy, the communication was awesome! We’re loving our new home and will definitely be recommending Donavaun Horn to everyone... GO GATORS

10/03/2017 - user9803314

Donavaun was always keeping us posted with any new details going one with our deal. He was in constant contact and advocated for us every step of the way. When things got hard, as home buying often does, he reassured us that everything would work out and then helped us make it happen. He has been WONDERFUL through this whole process.

08/29/2017 - roseadambright2000

Our rental property sold much faster, for much more, than we expected and it is all thanks to Donavaun. He did a great job on creating our listing, went above and beyond in cleaning and staging, handled negotiating with the other realtor and was in general very pleasant, positive, and straightforward to deal with. I will recommend him to my friends planning to buy or sell a home in his territory.

08/28/2017 - floridawilliams

Donavaun is very knowledgeable, professional, efficient and hardworking. This was an amazing experience from start to finish with the suggestions, advice and guidance during this real estate process. I would recommend him to anyone needing a great realtor.

08/16/2017 - Olajuwon White

Donavaun was the blessing I didn't know I needed. He assisted me in purchasing my first home. As a service connected disabled Veteran, his expertise helped me to navigate my earned benefit of my VA home loan guarantee. Donavaun kept my wants and needs at the top of his list and provided many amazing property listings. He is professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. I would recommend him time after time. As a first time homeowner, with him, the process was a breeze and actually fun. I will always use Donavaun for all of my real estate needs. Thank you Donavaun

07/08/2017 - efaw086

Great help; competently handled out of state challenges; Appreciative of his assistance in not just obtaining inspection but willingness to be on the property

07/07/2017 - BrianWalker28

He is a skilled professional. He is right to the point and will be your strongest advocate. When I started my home search I was provided access to a cutting edge home listing website. This website was extremely helpful with notifying me of brand new listings as they appear on the market. This is how I was able to submit a bid within an hour of being listed on the website. I am thankful for Mr. Donavaun Horne. He sold me my first home.

06/19/2017 - lajones6833

Mr. Horne was an AWESOME agent! He provided excellent service. Mr. Horne was very professional at all times. He actually listen to what I wanted and made it happened. He was very knowledgeable about the different areas. Mr. Horne was very personable. He was always prepared and had what I needed before I asked. Mr. Horne made the whole process of looking for my home to purchasing less stressful. He negotiated everything I wanted and things I had not considered with the Seller. I would recommend him to any and everyone I know. By far, he is the #1 realtor in my book!

05/31/2017 - jmichaelmunger

Donavaun was beyond professional and responsive to my many, MANY communications. He knew the constraints I was operating with and the requirements I was looking for. Not only did he find me 3 places that I put an offer on, and ultimately guide me through closing process, but did so in less than 2 months! All I can conclude is that--with an open mind--he will be able to find the ideal property for you.

05/31/2017 - millsaps52

No one have ever helped me more in buying a new home than Donavaun Horne, for over a year, my wife and I searched for a small place to be near our granddaughter, Donavaun met with home inspectors, with the government to turn on our utilities, he provided his own time in traveling many miles to have water tested for us, he stood by us when we did not close on one home and took us thru the entire process again, Always there to help, always there without an attitude and always helpful, I would recommend this man if I were listing, or selling a home in the Gainesville area. I have never had a more professional agent in my 65 years of buying homes and listing them,

04/07/2017 - zuser20140723103203834

It's a really nice experience to have Donavaun help find a beloved house. He responses quickly and has great knowledge of local houses. I am a new home buyer. He is really patient and sent me a lot of useful information. The home inspection he recommended is also great. I would definitely recommend him if you need a realtor to help you buy/sell a house.

03/23/2017 - Alan Zak

Donavaun kept in close contact with my wife and I in our search for a home for my homeless veteran brother-in-law. Highly responsive, referred us to inspection and other resources who were likewise. Next time I need to buy or sell a single-family home, Donovaun would definitely be my first choice!

02/27/2017 - brunondj

He was very helpful throughout the whole process and even set up a portal for houses that fit my need. Responses were within a good amount of time, and he handled much of the initial process for me. I would very much recommend him!

02/13/2017 - zuser20161209054551528

Donavaun is incredible! He cares about his work and will go to bat for you as his clients. He is knowledgable and will always find the answer is he doesn't know. He really listened to our wants in a new home and carried us through the process, as we are new home buyers. He was patient and SUPER responsive!

01/03/2017 - KB9022

Donavaun is a wonderful realtor. He goes above and beyond the scope of what most individuals would do. He is extremely knowledgeable and is always available when you need him. He know exactly what to say and do in every situation and is masterfully skilled in negotiating. I would recommend him to any and everybody looking to buy a home. He will always deliver and not let you down.

12/08/2016 - tracythomas227

My entire experience was at ease with this Realtor. His Professionalism and Knowledge of his job made me trust him all the way. I really enjoyed working with him. He answered any question that I had, and he always communicated with me, which to me means alot. I'm Proud to call him MY Realtor. And I Thank him so much for all his hard work. Thank you Donavaun for the wonderful experience !!!

10/27/2016 - shjw2

He was a fabulous partner and is otherwise a very special human being. He seems to really love what he does.

We had some challenges with the process (buyers side) and Donavaun persevered. He went above and beyond to represent my interests.

I recommend him highly.

10/26/2016 - sarahbruton

I cannot say enough great things about Donavaun! He went above what I expected to help us get our home. He kept us informed of each step in the home buying process and helped us through the stresses of buying a home. Donavaun responded to each text and email quickly and answered any questions we had. I recommend him to everyone, he is always professional, friendly, and on your side. We could not have done this without him!

10/26/2016 - rob bruton98

Donavaun was our realtor for our recent home purchase and we could not be happier with him. He was great through the whole process, very professional but also very friendly and just an overall likeable guy. We were first time home buyers and as soon as we started looking into the process Donavaun reached out to us to offer his assistance. I am very glad he did because I don't think we could have ended up with a better realtor. He was ALWAYS available and very quick to reply to any questions or needs. We told him a few houses we had seen online that we wanted to look at and he was able to arrange viewings within the week (often the very next day). He was very helpful when we were looking at houses but also not too pushy about anything. Once we picked the house we liked, he helped us to figure out what to do for an offer and drafted up a contract very quickly. We had some issues with the seller being difficult to deal with, but Donavaun was able to use his powers of finesse to smooth things out and make the deal happen. I very much believe that the sale would not have gone through without his skills and expertise. We just recently closed on the house and are very happy with the outcome and with all the work Donavaun did to make it happen. I very highly recommend Donavaun to anyone buying or selling in the area!

10/21/2016 - katdecarvalho

Donavaun contacted me immediately when I emailed him about a property. Unfortunately the property had already been sold....He sent me others for review and offered helpful advice, but I couldn't find anything that interested me as much as that first property, so I've suspended my search for now. I will contact him again if I decide to resume a home search.

09/05/2016 - Nancy Kocsis

There is no one that would work harder and respond as quickly as Donavaun. He showed me a home a little over the price I requested but it turned out to be the home I wanted . He knew what I was looking for. He made calls for me and helped with negation so on the price.

09/01/2016 - tkthom25

Mr. Horne is a great salesman, his attitude and demeanor is awesome. He is eager to help and assure that his customers are satisfied and well informed about their home selection. Some obstacles may arise however Mr. Horne is knowledgeable in ensuring that all basis are covered before advising his customers with any unhappiness. It was a pleasure working with him. If there is ever a need to purchase another home, I would not hesitate to contact this wonderful, energetic inspiring young man.

08/27/2016 - user6478833

Donavaun is the kind of real estate agent that everyone should have. He is very knowledgeable about the area, the neighborhoods, and answers all questions. He stays with you all the way through the home-buying process. I am a first-time home buyer and I couldn't have asked for a better person to help me. Thank you, Donavaun!

08/24/2016 - aappiascik

Awesome agent. He knew exactly what we were looking for. I will deal with him again.thank you Donavaun . My daughter likes the place . Donavaun is responsive and available to answer all questions 24 hours a day. He uses newest technology which allowed me to make the purchase and sign all necessary documents via email. I highly recommend him and i will do bussiness with him again.

07/13/2016 - samantha dunk

When we decided to buy a house it was basically on a whim. The house down the street was for sale, and we thought it may work for us. Donavaun was given to use by the mortgage company we went with, and it really paid off. The original house that made us consider buying was not going to work for our family, so we had to begin the hunt. Our list was long, specific, and unbudging. We refused to give on size, location, or price. Donavaun was fabulous through the whole process! Not only did he find us a home, but he found us our home which is pretty impressive considering he only had a few blocks to work with.

His customer service is amazing. He is funny, relaxed, and willing to explain everything to a first time buyer (which we were). He was always there, holding our hands and easing our confusion through the process. We are forever grateful that he was the person "given" to us when we decided to buy.

Thank you Donavaun!

07/05/2016 - dburnsfleming

Donavaun Horne was an excellent agent to work with, always available and ready to help in anyway he could. It wasn't a big purchase but I felt he helped me like it was. I recommend Donavaun very highly.

06/15/2016 - maiareger

My husband and I had a great experience working with Donavaun as first time homebuyers. He was very knowledgable and attentive. Most importantly he was patient, and always answered all of our questions kindly. With his help we finally closed on our dream home!

06/05/2016 - dontquestionit

Working with Donavaun has been a great experience. As a first time home buyer, he has assisted me with the overall process every step in the way from finding a home through closing. Donavaun is pr ofessional, adaptable/flexible, knowledgeable, charismatic and dependable. Regardless if you're a first time home buyer or second, I'd highly recommend Donavaun to assist you with your home search.

06/02/2016 - jennyguan89

As a first time homebuyer, Donavaun helped me every step of the way in the home buying process. He is very knowledgable about the Gainesville housing market and will go above and beyond to make sure your home buying needs are met. I am very satisfied with my new home. Thank you Donavaun!!

05/27/2016 - AllisonMcGee0

Donavaun Horne was very knowledgeable about the area, kind enough to work around my hectic schedule, and really listened to my preferences. He helped me find the perfect little house and made the whole closing process easier. I would highly recommend Donavaun if you're looking for someone who cares about their clients and puts in the time and effort to find the home you are looking for.

04/24/2015 - Dalton Berrie

This was my first time buying a house and Donavaun was fantastic. He was professional, always on time, kept me informed about where we were in the process. I highly recommend him, and have already given his name out to others I know are interested in buying.

I appreciate your review of my work Dalton, It was an absolute pleasure to work with you. I wish you many great memories in your new home. Thank You.
