They treated us like we were a part of their team.
If you want a professional, friendly, determined, and caring real estate team, Dave and Sam O’Donnell are your realtors!! I can’t express enough words to describe how the workmanship of Team O’Donnell has ultimately helped our family transition into our forever home! Dave and Sam always made us feel like we were their only clients. They always demonstrated clear cut and transparent communication during our entire process of selling and buying our homes at the same time! They listened to all of our wants, needs, fears, frustrations, and demands and complied accordingly. They treated us like we were a part of their team instead of just “selling us a home”. The real estate market is challenging and with those challenges we faced, Dave and Sam always remained calm, pleasant and factual throughout the entire process! There isn’t enough gratitude in the world that we could share to express how grateful and glad we are to have chosen them for our real estate needs! They are a true depiction of what a professional real estate team should be in all aspects! Team O’Donnell with Keller Williams Realty will always be our number 1 choice! And they should be yours too!!

Their team's efforts allowed me to have the first bid on the house.
As I envisioned myself starting my homebuying journey, I pictured myself dragging Sam and Dave in and out of houses for the next 12 months. Thank goodness they made my reality a completely different story! They very quickly pulled a few lists for me based on what I was looking for, and then made themselves available to me when it was convenient for me so that we could go check out my top picks. After looking at just a few houses, Dave and Sam noticed a house in my preferred neighborhood and contacted me right away. They were able to get me into the house the same day it was listed, which allowed me to have the first bid on the house. I truly believe that their diligence is the reason I found my dream house, and their expertise in handling a multiple offer situation is the reason why my offer was the one accepted. Their amazing coaching continued throughout the process, which made closing a breeze. I highly recommend the O'Donnell team for anyone looking for their dream house, and will not hesitate to recommend them to my friends and family!

They truly looked out for the personal interests of our family.
My wife and I could not be more grateful for the assistance Team O'Donnell provided during our home buying experience. Our journey from selling our old home to purchasing our new one was a process that took years to achieve. Even when assistance was not requested and time passed by, Dave & Sam continued to maintain open communication and provide assistance in a variety of avenues. Their knowledge in the field goes far beyond simple real estate transactions and they are an extremely valuable asset to aid in the decision making process that is required when relocating. When questions arise, they are always accessible with an extremely efficient response time. Outside of the professional relationship with us they established, they truly looked out for the personal interests of our family. The effort they provide is sincere and consistent and always left us knowing they operate with the highest level of integrity. We would absolutely recommend Dave & Sam to anyone interested in purchasing or selling their home.

As a young an novice buyer, I could not have been happier with this team and the support they provided.
Sam and Dave are wonderful Realtors, who made the buying process easy, fought to get me the lowest price, and helped get all the fixes that the house required. They did not stop after I bought the house either, they continued helping me anything I need. As a young and novice buyer, I could not have been happier with this team and the support they provided me through the whole process. They set me up with a great inspector, who found issue with the house I did not see and then Sam and Dave made sure the seller got them fixed. They also set me up with a great mortgage company that was nothing but helpful. It has been nearly three months and Bernie still helps me with any issue with paper work or questions I have about the mortgage. Sam and Dave made sure that the process went smoothly and was non-stressful. I would recommend them to anyone I know buying or selling a house.

Have trust in this team and take their advice.
We met Dave randomly at an open house he was listing. We pulled up thinking we had 45 minutes left based on times we saw online. However, the open house times we saw were wrong and Dave was closing the house up. He not only decided to let us in, but also took an additional 45-60 minutes of his time to talk in detail to us about the property. While we didn't end up making an offer on that property, we did make a decision to work with Dave moving forward in our search. It was the best decision we could have made! Over a 3 month span (roughly) Dave and his wife Sam, also a realtor, showed us about 25 different properties. They were responsive to EVERY listing we had interest in. Some days we sent a text and within minutes we got a response and 9/10 times we were in that particular house later that day or at the latest the next day. You can tell they truly love what they do and they give you a no pressure feel and understand that this will be the largest purchase you will probably make in your lifetime. From early morning texts to late night phone calls, they were there for us for all of it. Have trust in this team and take their advice with their recommendations for you mortgage needs as well. They truly have a seamless plan from start to finish and have the best knowledge in the business to get YOU to closing as stress free as possible. I will always recommend Dave and Sam!! P.S. After such an awesome experience on the buying end, I decided to use them on the selling of my first home as well. The details of the listing and pictures they took were top notch. The house sold quickly!!
