Referrals from Owners and Tenants


I have partnered with John on a investment property for several years. When I decided to sell, I wouldn't consider anyone else. John executed the process perfectly (as I was living out of state), including several tasks that definitely required an extra level of support given my location. His knowledge led us to an optimal outcome and a short and precise process. I would recommend John in a heartbeat if you are looking to sell or buy a house in Falmouth.

The most impressive aspect of working with John is his responsiveness. We were in Falmouth for just a week and in that short time he found us a house we love, negotiated the price, and referred us to a mortgage broker, insurance agent, and the home inspection was completed. He works fast, he's refreshingly honest and thorough, and he's always upbeat. This was a great home buying experience!

John loves his work and is passionate about housing. Every time we called he answered and he made every question feel important. Do yourself a favor and hire John. Then do yourself another favor and ask for his unedited opinion even if you think you found exactly what your looking for. We did and now we have more than we imagined we could get.
- Mark and Lorain Herder-Buyer



We had the pleasure to meet John earlier this summer on Cape Cod while he helped us secure a family summer home. We found him to be knowledgeable, professional and very personable.
He helped us navigate the buying process easily with his knowledge.

We would certainly recommend John.

John Bowen is a true professional. His work was focused and effective in finding the home my wife and I were looking for. Rich with information and details of each house we visited, he helped us make the right choice. We are very pleased to work with him, and would do so in the future.
- S.H. Kim-Buyer



John was great in helping us find our new home. We relocated from Ohio and were not able to handle the traditional home buying and scouting tasks on our own. John was in constant contact. He went out of the way to scout properties and attend our home inspection when we could not be there ourselves. He even helped me find a temporary rental until the closing date on our house.

I would definitely recommend John when buying your home. I'm sure he would be just as great as a Sellers agent too.

- Jeromy & Jean R.-Buyer



John was very helpful in selling our house, even when we were 3 states away. He was helpful getting local contacts in to make sure the sale went through. Prior John was our rental agent. He was able to find a 3 year rental.
- J. Kueny-Seller



John helped me find tenants for a rental property and then list and sell that home when our tenants moved out three years later. As I lived many states away, I was concerned about managing all the various service providers who would need access to the house. John provided excellent recommendations and walked us through every stage of the listing and sale. He made this complicated process run as smoothly as I could have hoped for despite the sale taking place during unprecedented snowstorms. I can't recommend him highly enough.

- K. Anderson-Seller



John is an experienced realtor with knowledge of the town and surrounding area along with his expertise in the rental market. Found John to be very responsive and accessible during the process of our transaction.
- J. Ragazzo-Buyer



We met John when we needed a rental house on the Cape. He was an extremely hard worker and found us a great house. When it was time to buy, we weren't finding anything we liked in the listings. He went the extra mile for us. He knew what we liked and started looking at houses that were taken off the market. That's when he found a house that was perfect for us. When it came time to sell, John was the one we called. He marketed our home and he has an expert knowledge of Cape Cod and the housing market. He worked tirelessly for us and provided encouragement, good humor and knowledge throughout the process. We would highly recommend him for buying or selling a home.

- Mike & Wendi B.-Seller



John not only helped us with finding renters for the house but when placed on the market he went above board in helping put it on the market to sell it. He responded to every call and concern and made each step of the sale remarkable. Mind you, we were in North Carolina the entire time. He cared enough to find new homes for our tenants and their special needs as well as deal with our attorneys as we went thru the sale process. It took less than three months from start to finish and we were thrilled. Keep up the good work John!!!!
- L. Bradford-Seller



John worked quickly and was very responsive to my questions and concerns. He worked hard to ensure the best sale for my house and within my required timeframe.

- S. Leins-USCG-Seller



John Bowen sold our house while others tried without success. He is professional and always responds in a timely manner. John is resourceful by making insightful suggestions on preparing your home for rent or sale and is also knowledgeable about contractors for the task at hand. John Bowen is the one realtor to make your sale or rental happen. He is a man of his word.
- M. Reardon-Seller



Dennis Murphy is the best Realtor!! We looked for a house, on and off, for 2 years with Dennis. He was able to set up marathon days, looking at many houses, which was great for our schedule. He listened to our requests and guided us to listings with our specifications. He is also a very pleasant and nice person to spend the day with. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Cape and could provide ideas about restaurants, beaches and attractions ( yoga!!). We would highly recommend Dennis if you are looking for a house in the Falmouth area.

- Nancy E from MA



I had a wonderful experience with Dennis Murphy of Donahue Real Estate -both in trying to buy a fabulous Cape house, and, again, unexpectedly, when the deal fell through.

Dennis was expert in evaluating the house, the price and the timing of our offer. He was personable and professional at every twist and turn that arose during the purchase and sale process. He was knowledgeable about Cape houses, closing attorney's and local mortgage agents, as well as with the costs of renovation and repair.

When we had difficulties in finalizing the deal, Dennis was as supportive, honest and helpful as he was at the outset. He helped us to move on and find the right house. Dennis is a rare find in a competitive real estate world with many agents - some skilled and trustworthy, some not. I would (and will) recommend him and Donahue Real Estate to friends and family - with my highest regard and appreciation.

I wanted to make sure your company is aware of the shining star you have in Joan Baird. She was an absolute joy to work with. Joan helped Colleen and I to overcome many obstacles and was always available day and night to answer and resolve our questions and issues. I will definitely recommend her to our friends and family. Thank for so much for Joan and your office for facilitating this purchase, Colleen and I are very excited and love the house.

Dear [Donahue Real Estate],

Jim and I want to thank you for your assistance and your professionalism in renting our condo. Right from the onset you assured us that you would treat this rental as if it was your own and you did not fail us. You did an extraordinary job for us. I was confident that we were in good hands throughout the entire process. Donahue Real Estate is lucky to have you! I feel confident that when we are ready to sell our condo, without a doubt, we know who to go to. Thanks again for making the process run so smoothly. We look forward to working with you again and to recommend you to our friends and neighbors.

Dear [Donahue Real Estate],

As tenants of a property owned by Donahue Real Estate we were thoroughly impressed with the responsive, thoughtful and caring service that was provided to us. The house we rented was extremely comfortable and is in a great location at a great price. Within miles of a private beach in a quiet neighborhood, the house was close to plenty of shops and great restaurants. Based on our great experience as tenants, we decided to use Donahue Real Estate to help us purchase a house and we couldn't be happier. As first time home buyers, Dennis was with us every step of the way offering his expert advice throughout. We are so glad we made the right choice and chose Donahue Real Estate, we offer Dennis and all of the staff at Donahue Real Estate our highest recommendation!

- T. & L.

Dear [Donahue Real Estate],
Just a quick note to tell you how happy I am with [your agent] and all of her expertise in renting our home. Since she has arrived in your business, I have had almost the entire rental season filled!!! Although I know that it is not all of her directly, I think that she adds an excitement and energy to your office that is infectious. She is really wonderful. Thank you for finding her.

- Mark DiStefano



Dear [Donahue Real Estate],
I want to thank you for all you did for Joanna and me on this house. She loves it. I haven't seen her as excited for a long time. We could only have done this in the short space of time with your help.
- John McWilliam



Dear [Donahue Real Estate],

Thank you for all the service you gave us! First we bought our house in Falmouth through you. Your staff and agents were professional and thorough convincing us to utilize your company as our rental agent. That relationship was exemplary! Your guidance on problems and tenant concerns averted many difficulties allowing us to profit while having satisfied customers.

We were very touched when a few years ago you facilitated the rescue vacation for the family that had been scammed out of a Cape Cod Beach vacation. Your community commitment permeates all you and your company does.

Second, we sold our house through you in barely a day! Then a few tricky road bumps happened with the sale but because of your expertise we closed Thanksgiving Eve. That was a great present to us!

Again we thank you for your professional and knowledgeable service. We recommend you highly.
