    John and Jill both started out by trying to sell their home on their own. After running into many challenges and realizing they could make more money by using OurTown Group they decided to hire a top team to get top dollar.

    John and Jill


    I decided to put my house of 32 years on the market to sell. I was advised by many to interview at least 3 realtors before making a decision of who to work with. Everyone I knew had someone to suggest I use – which made me not want to use any of them. Donavan was the first I interviewed at length and my mind was made up – I didn’t need to look any further. I was a mess and he was so patient and full of encouragement and suggestions. Within a very short time and following his suggestions – the house was ready to show. I had to be a real challenge for him to work with because I had to call him continuously. His plan was followed and my concerns were all met (my daughter and two grandchildren lived with me). I can truthfully say that because of Donavan I actually enjoyed the process. I have read that it can be one of the most stressful experiences – but it was not for me. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Donavan – his character is full of honesty, kindness, humility, integrity, perseverance and patience.

    Donavan and Randy have been wonderful to work with. My wife and I have had a bit of a complicated situation since we are moving to Gainesville from Indiana, but Donavan has gone above and beyond to help us find and purchase a house. He is always very quick to respond to our texts and emails, he is friendly and respectful and we felt that he genuinely cared about getting us into the right home for our family. He has a vast knowledge of the Gainesville area (since he has lived there his whole life) and was also very helpful in answering questions and helping us understand aspects of the home purchasing process that we were not familiar with. If/when we move again in the future, we will definitely be calling Donavan and will certainly recommend him to others who are looking for a realtor.

    Donavan was great to work with. He really got to know us and what we were looking for in a home. He was available through phone, email and text throughout the whole process. We appreciated him checking in after we closed just to say hi and to wish us the best. We’ll definitely recommend him to our friends and family.

    After looking at nearly 30 homes together, Donovan continued to show poise, faithfulness, and professionalism. He provides a unique blend of local knowledge, due diligence, and patient negations to help me find the home that fitted both my budget and desirable qualities. I recently closed on a $300K+ property and Donovan was with me 100% of the time. From showings to closing, Donovan showcased a unique blend of personalism and professionalism I not only admired but valued. A family man himself, I came to know Donovan as a reliable and available realtor. The results speak for themselves.

    A few years ago I worked with Donovan to purchase the condo that I have now sold with Donovan’s and Randy’s assistance. They gave me specific suggestions for getting the condo ready for resale. Donovan researched information about nearby properties for comparison. He also responded to my phone calls, emails, and text messages very quickly. Both were extremely helpful with all aspects of the sale. I would highly recommend contacting Donovan and/or Randy for selling or buying a property.

    This team of Donovan Arnold and Randy Hunziker were always available to answer any questions I had. They are professional and great at marketing the property listed for sale. I will always recommend them to anyone seeking a realtor for selling or buying a home.

    Great group of people. Very helpful and honest. When I buy or sale I will use them again. Helped get the tree out of the roof and repair it so that it could be sold without having to remove it from the sale list.

    OurTown Realty Group was so helpful to me during the process of buying a new house while selling my current one. Donavan and Randy’s comprehensive knowledge of the local market, prices and the real estate process made me feel at ease and they sold my current home in TWO days! They were able to  negotiate a price for my new home and got me the home of my dreams. They were also able to work out an agreement with the buyers of my former home to allow me ample time to make the moving transition much easier. I would recommend the entire team at OurTown Realty Group to anyone!

    We’ve used Donavan and Randy as our realtors as both buyers and sellers of a home. He’s very knowledgeable and responsive. Donavan always went above and beyond to make the process as smooth as possible for us and provide us with all the information to make the process go smoothly and quickly. We would  definitely recommend OurTown to someone who is in need of a realtor.
