Ratings & Reviews

We highly recommend Dave Doran for both buying and selling! Dave was professional from start to finish yet down to earth and personable. We felt well informed throughout the process and never felt pressured into any decision or as though Dave let his personal preferences cloud his advice. <br/><br/>We had our house on the market with two other realtors before Dave and it did not sell. With Dave, our house sold! <br/><br/>Dave is very knowledgeable about the market, the Twin Cities, surrounding suburbs, and beyond. It was apparent that Dave keeps up on real estate statistics, housing trends, and many other topics related to his job.<br/><br/>He was always very prompt in answering emails, phone calls, and texts. He always made his best effort to get us in to see houses even if it was last minute or spread out all over the metro. <br/><br/>We had very particular needs and not a huge budget and Dave was patient throughout the lengthy process it took us to narrow down the type of house we wanted and the area in which we wanted to live. Dave also handled a tricky situation that arose (by no fault of his) with patience and professionalism. <br/><br/>We absolutely love the house we purchased and owe much of that to Dave's patience with us and allowing us the time and space to figure out what we needed and what was best for our particular situation.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Merriam Park, Saint Paul, MN.

Dave knew the area well, and was able to precisely give me an idea of what my house would likely go for. This was reassuring as a homeowner, to have an agent that will help you make an informed decision, rather than the decision that may benefit he or she most, or what I wanted to hear. Dave took the time to review the house with us, and give us great recommendations for items to address prior to sale; all of which helped expedite the process. His industry experience helped us tap into markets that others would not have been able to do, and I felt he was always marketing my property the best it could be, and gave me plenty of options. As a seller, I felt Dave helped us every step of the way, and would use his services again in the future.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Elliot Park, Minneapolis, MN.

Dave is very professional and goes out of his way to make the process as smooth as possible. We went out to look at several places and he knew a ton about different the different areas of the Twin Cities. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Highland, Saint Paul, MN.

We could not have been happier with our choice in realtor. My wife and I were new to Minnesota and Dave took the time to get to know us and our priorities before making spot on neighborhood recommendations. He was extremely knowledgeable of the local markets and neighborhoods. He was able to steer us away from busy streets and questionable areas while still staying within our budget. When visiting a potential house he not only pointed out the positives and negatives of the house but was also able to give creative remodeling ideas such as which walls could be taken down or how to make a cramped kitchen feel more open along with costs because of his years of experience remodeling homes. This was our first home purchase and Dave made our search stress free. We were very well taken care of working with him and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone searching for their new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in St Louis Park, MN.

Dave's patience with us on our first home journey was great. In today's market, it was certainly a plus to have someone in our corner who knows the market, timing, and pricing to garner the best results.

Due to his ability to negotiate quickly and navigate us through the purchase process, we were extremely happy to land our first home.

When the time comes, we'll certainly reach out to Dave again to help us on our next purchase.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in St Louis Park, MN.

He was very patient with us as first time home buyers, showing us home after home after home until we found the right one and provided the right amount of guidance through the process. Dave has a an upbeat, positive attitude which helped us a lot when we were getting impatient or discouraged. He was always available, even when he was traveling overseas. Additionally, the EXIT Realty team was extremely helpful and supportive the few times Dave had other obligations. I plan to use Dave again in the future and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Waite Park, Minneapolis, MN.

This was my first homebuying experience as a single person and I was very nervous. Dave was amazing at explaining the process and walking me through it. He was honest with me about his thoughts on the areas I was looking and encouraged me to think outside of what my initial wants were. He was kind and patient. When it came to submitting an offer, he kept me updated, negotiated on my behalf while offering me all the available options. I would work with him again, hands down!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in St Louis Park, MN.

Dave did a great job guiding me through a difficult purchase process. The home I was purchasing was in rough shape which made completing the deal even more complex than usual, but he was there every step of the way to make sure we got the deal on time. I would recommend Dave to anyone looking to list or purchase a home.

Working with Dave to buy a home was a true pleasure! He is professional, timely & honest. If you are looking to buy or sell a property do what my wife and I did, put Dave on your speed dial!
