“Stacey and I had a team of home buying superheroes. Buying our first home was so easy. I wish I could scream it from one end of Savannah to the other. Everyone was so wonderful, from beginning to end. Carol Anne, Tim, and Jesse. Thank you for working so hard for us, so we didn’t have to.” — Heather Lank, Buyer in 2016

Don & his team went beyond what was expected of a realty company by taking care of EVERYTHING – from accurate pricing to house repairs & staging to representing me at the closing. These guys DO everything they say they will do – on time, on budget, and with a smile.” — Amy Patrick, Seller in 2016

“Being a first time seller it was great to have such a professional and knowledgeable team to guide me. Don sold me my first house 17 years ago and I am as pleased with this transaction as I was the previous one. We had a couple of bumps in the road but Don and his team work endlessly to get the job done. He has sold two houses for my sister and her experience has been the same as mine. Don you and your team are awesome.” — Madeline Collins, Seller in 2016

“We were new to Savannah and didn’t know the residential market. Carol Anne helped us in so many ways. Now only did she find the perfect house for us they answered our many questions on local and services. They made the inspection and negotiation process easy with their many professional contacts.” — Charles McMillian, Buyer in 2016

“I thought buying a house was going to be a huge ordeal, especially living in another state and buying in Savannah. Chris Matthews was amazing. He went out of his way to be available when we were able to come to town and look at houses. When we were not in town, Chris stayed in constant contact with us sending us houses online to look at and answering any questions that came up. Chris stayed very patient with us while we looked at houses, not sure how he did it but he did. Then one day, we found the perfect house. Came back to look at it again and yes, it was the perfect house. Our house just sold and Chris worked closely with all parties to make the closing date as quick as possible so we would be able to move right in. We can’t thank Chris enough for making this process all so painless.” — Jim Vivo, Buyer in 2016

“Buying a house, especially for the first time, and even more particularly when you’re new to an area, can be nerve-wracking. I can’t begin to describe how helpful and comforting it was to have Carol Anne on my side throughout the process. Her knowledge as well as her candor were invaluable tools in my home search. She exudes great professionalism, while remaining approachable. She easily gained my trust, and repeatedly showed me that it was well earned, even after closing. I can’t say enough good things about my experience. If I ever need real estate services in the future, she will be my only call.” — Samantha Fassett, Buyer in 2016

Don Callahan was not only knowledgeable about the area, he was never pushy, seemed genuinely caring about making the process as easy for us as possible. He is honest and has more integrity than most people not only in the real estate business but any business. I would highly recommend him to anyone either selling or buying a home in Savannah.” — Arlene Meyer, Seller

“I was nervous at the beginning of the house buying process being this would be my first time buying a house.

I would highly recommend the Don Callahan team for anyone’s next home purchase!” — Michael Barbour, Buyer

Chris Matthews helped me find a home that fit all of my priority requirements. He listened closely and really focused on my needs: single level with minimal steps, handicap accessible, spacious living areas, quiet neighborhood, move-in ready, and a beautiful yard. He helped me find the home that I needed and I am very grateful.” — Mechelle Nobiletti, Buyer

“My experience with the team at Callahan exceeded all expectations. With every minor setback, I felt confident that a member of the team was surely hard at work to resolve the issue. When all was said and done, we found ourselves to be homeowners of a great house. Without question, Kelly and the team at Callahan will certainly be involved with our next property purchase. Thanks so much guys. We’ll be in touch.” — Derek Lumley, Buyer

Don Callahan and his team made the selling process incredibly easy. This was the first time my wife and I were dealing with a house sale, and Don made us feel comfortable throughout the process. The effort Don and his team put in on the front end secured us a contract on our house within days of it being listed. I would absolutely recommend Don Callahan to anyone considering selling a home. — Alex Getz, Seller

From the day we contacted Kelly Sharkey about finding a home, he was always ready to help. His familiarity with the area that we were interested in simplified our search. Kelly was very patient with our search and able to make excellent suggestions that were very useful. A pleasure to work with! — Stewart Daniel, Buyer

“I initially listed my house with a different realtor for more than six months without success. There were multiple problems and errors with the listing, which took a month to even get listed. Don listed it within 48 hours and had a contract in only three weeks. His assistant is just as efficient. I highly recommend this team.” –Deb Stebenne, Seller

“We were selling our first home, and had already moved out of state. We tried renting our house, but it just wasn’t working out from across the country. We knew we needed to sell. We had always heard about Don, and how well he sold homes in the Parkside neighborhood. Also, Don had just sold our neighbors home quickly and easily. From the first time we talked I felt very comfortable working with him. He was obviously experienced with the market in our neighborhood, he was professional yet relaxed, and I felt like I could trust him to take care of things while we were getting settled across the country. We could check on showings and sign paperwork online, so we knew what was going on and were able to react quickly. When the contract came in he was very helpful in negotiating the price we needed. I’m so glad we were able to work with Don and his team.”  — Sarah O’Bryan, Seller

Don Callahan and his  Team provided exceptional service and expertise when listing and selling my house. I was out of town for the entire process and they made it stress free with their constant communication. Don did the proper research to list and get an offer on my house in 5 days!! I would recommend Don and Laura to anyone who is serious about listing their property.” —Mike Morgan, Seller

The entire Team is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with! If you want results, they are the Team to work with!” — Rhonda Razani, Seller

“If you want your real estate agent to be a trusted advisor and exceed your expectations on professional service, knowledge and creativity in handling anything that happens, then Don Callahan cannot come with any higher recommendation. Don managed to turn around two different situations that popped up and get the deal done!” — Nancy Regelin, Seller

“Don Callahan is top notch. He made what would normally be a very stressful situation an easy one for us. Laura was fantastic with keeping us informed of important dates, coordinating paperwork, and coordinating repairs to be performed on our home. We would highly recommend Don and his team.” — Londe Cremeans, Seller

“I cannot say enough about Don Callahan and his assistant Laura Hyatt. This was my first time selling a house and every aspect of the experience was superb. From the beginning I knew I was in the hands of an experienced master realtor. Don put all my fears and stress to rest. At every stage, he kept me informed of everything. He sets this wonderful tone of calm and smarts and great logistics. From advising me on what to repair/touch up/clean to ready the house to go on the market, to his vast “advertisements” , videos and photos of my house and land sent across North America, to having their own handyman do last-minute, post-inspection repairs, saving me time, money, stress, and finding a handyman. I really only had to sign papers and show up. My every question was promptly answered. Don and Laura really worked hard for me. I was both impressed and so grateful at every turn. Don surprised me with his good evaluations of my house and land and his pricing of it. I made more money selling it than I ever thought I could. At every step, from beginning to the closing, I was always really glad that I had Don there with me and/or doing it for me, and not anyone else. I had no idea that selling a house could be such a fantastic, happy experience. I cannot recommend Don Callahan enough. He is 5 stars plus ultra!” — Sarah Eaton, Seller

“Don was an absolute professional during our entire process. His knowledge of the Savannah market is exceptional. I would highly recommend him to any and all friends and associates.” — Seller

“Don and his team are just the berries…(always wanted to use that line)…haha! I really Can’t imagine ever working with anyone else, as Don and Laura are always an absolute joy to work with and when one combines all their experience and savvy for knowing what works, coupled with an endless supply of local knowledge and connections, all needed to ensure the process goes smoothly from start to finish…and it always does… Thanks Y’all Rock!!!” — Jon R., Seller

“Don and his team were great to work with. He got our house under contract in six days. He and his team were so professional to work with, they made everything so easy for us. I have and still continue to highly recommend him to everyone!” — Mark S., Seller

“An easy 5 stars all the way! We got hooked up with Mark G. through a website and couldn’t have been more satisfied. When I see friends struggling through the buying process, I feel so lucky that we had an agent who was really willing to go the extra mile to help us. While we had inevitable “glitches” he smoothly worked us through each one and into the perfect house for us and with the same customer service as if we were buying a mansion when we were just helping our son into his first starter home while in college. Our agent’s outstanding communication made it possible to do most of the process long distance even.” — D.J. Osbourn, Buyer

“Don Callahan is a wizard !!! He digs under rocks to find fabulous investment properties and is a more fierce in negotiator than I’d ever dare be . For his Sales clients he is meticulous in staging the home for the buyers perspective He basically “assumes ” the perspective a potential “buyer ” and see what would attract as well as what would deter a buyer . His judgment is spot on . He and his team are dedicated to what they do . They are relentless!!! He and his group kept me fully informed and basically TAUGHT me “the business from the ground up!! Being new and feeling quite timid Don Callahan encouraged me and my properties have grown in value exponentially since the days we began working together in the depth of the real estate malaise of 2009 and 2010 . He turned a cautious idea into a thriving real estate entity based in Savannah Ga ,and in doing secured my future .
Working with Don with his decision making wisdom and vision was the single most important financial decision I’ve made in my entire professional life !! As I’ve told him He is a WIZARD of Real Estate.”  — Kevin McGinn, Cold Comfort Homes LLC, Buyer & Seller

“Don Callahan and his team showed us superior customer service in handling our short sale. They worked diligently to find buyers and complete complicated procedures set forth by the bank. They always answered our questions and kept us informed of any changes. I don’t think our home would have been sold by now if we had gone with another agency. Thank you Don Callahan!! You are the best!” — Karen Canady, Buyer & Seller

“The Don Callahan Real Estate Group covered all basis with the sale of our home. All we had to do was make sure that it was clean to show. Everything else was taken care of.

I would highly recommend them to anyone in the market for buying or selling a home. Thank you!” — Angela Snipes, Seller

“Everyone I worked with at your office was friendly, courteous and more than willing to help in any way they could.

I was very impressed that Don showed up for my closing even though we weren’t working with him directly. I thought that it displayed good character and a dedication to his clients. I can’t recommend you guys highly enough. I also put a shout out on Twitter about you guys right after closing! Great work and thanks again!!!”

“In a very tight and competitive housing market, you made my home stand apart from the rest. While my neighbor’s homes are still on the market after well over a year, mine sold in about 6 months. I felt like I was always provided honest and forthright information about pricing and staging. I would absolutely recommend Don to others!” — Rachel Shane, Seller

“Don, you and Laura were a tremendous help and a source of stability in a very stressful time. The two of you followed through on every commitment and request that we made from listing the house to creating a visual tour that was outstanding to going over the offers and HUD statement. You were a pleasure to work with and by far the best agent team I have ever dealt with and I have bought and sold several houses. I would, and have recommended you to friends in Savannah and if you are ever in the New Orleans area please reach out us as we would love to see you again.” — Stuart & Amy Bakay, Seller

“Don is such a calming presence in the chaos of the very large life decision and transition of selling a house. He is very open and responsive – no question, comment, or concern seems to be too trivial for Don to address. Don is direct. He assisted us in preparing our house for sale by being objective. We were able to remove our personal attachment to the property in order to see our goal of a quick house sale. If you follow Don’s recommendations, you will see results!” — Heather & Jeff Feld-Gore, Seller

“My wife and I interviewed several realtors in the Savannah area and we chose Don for his professionalism, knowledge of the local market, attention to detail, and impressive website and publication materials. In this extremely difficult market, we had a firm offer on our home in two months along with a price with which we were very pleased. Simply stated, our home sold in record time because of Don Callahan and his staff. As it was our first home sale, Don’s advice and recommendations made the process very simply and pleasant. We would recommend him most highly to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in the Savannah area. If the opportunity arises, we would work with Don again without question. ” — Bob & Steff Frigo, Seller

“Don provided excellent help in finding a property for me. He worked closely with me and the listing agent to make the transaction smooth. The property was a federal foreclosure so the transaction was complicated with bureaucratic paper work. He kept it as simple as possible.” — Buyer

“Don and his entire team are the pure definition of professionalism! Their ability to assist us with a “long distance” purchase was excellent. If you’re are even considering a move to Savannah, Don Callahan should be the first call you make.” — W. Levitt, Buyer & Seller

“Don Callahan’s response to me was welcome for several reasons. The first being he thoroughly answered my questions and the second being he was not pushy about representing me as I was already working with another agent. Once my email address was in his system, the newsletters he sent out were as valuable to me for information as they were advertisement for him. When I decided to hire Don in lieu of my other agent (who was very nice, but not as involved) he helped find our home and his tenacity, as well as his negotiation skills were an asset. This is the 5th home I’ve purchased and I’ve never had an agent work so hard to find exactly what we wanted.” — Barbara Gaillard, Buyer

“Don Callahan has been helpful in several real estate capacities for me over the years. He is engaging, intelligent, available when needed, and aware of current trends. I recommend him highly.” — Buyer

“Don Callahan helped me purchase a foreclosed home on Tybee Island Georgia as well as sell my home in Savannah, GA. He did so in a personable, professional and caring manner. If I am ever in need of real estate advice or am in the position to sell my present home or buy a new one, I would unhesitatingly ask Don Callahan for assistance.” — Buyer

“Don is a consummate professional. He is tireless in his efforts to find you the home you desire at the price you can afford. I recommend Don Callahan to all of my friends and business associates.” — Kevin Ryan, Buyer

“Don helped my wife and I sell 5 properties in one year. All transactions were smooth and easy. When any issue would come up he would resolve them very quickly or know the correct professional to help us out. I would highly recommend Don to anyone looking to purchase or sell their property.” — T. Brummett, Seller

“Don is one of the most impressive and trust-worthy real estate agents I have ever worked with. He was able to sell our house in a timely manner at a time when the market looked hopeless. He was always respectful and honest with us. I no longer live in Savannah, but if I did, I would definitely work with Don Callahan.” — M. Zaretsky, Seller

“You will not find a better realtor than Don Callahan! I am a realtor in California with over a decade of experience and I have never worked with any realtor as dedicated as Don. We actually listed our property with 2 other agents and it did not sell. We then listed the property with Don and we were finally able to sell it. He is great at marketing and negotiating. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to sell a property.” — Seller

“We needed to sell our home in perhaps the worst real estate market of our lifetime. Don provided exceptional advice on staging and listing our home and it sold before we knew it. He is professional, personable, and a truly brilliant real estate agent. If you are seeking an agent in the Savannah area, there is honestly no reason to look any further than Don Callahan. We recommend him most highly without a single reservation.” — Seller

“From the beginning, Don communicated clearly, accurately and promptly. His marketing strategies were the most impressive I have seen. I particularly liked the Feedback-Central reports generated after a showing and also Trulia was a great tool for us as the sellers. Don had the experience and aggressive approach we were seeking. He produced the traffic we needed by holding open-house weekends multiple times, advertising the same, signs, balloons, everything but fireworks! He was excellent negotiating a sale which we were pleasantly surprised to have gotten top dollar particularly in this soft market. He did extensive research to price our property accurately from the beginning. We sold our property in just a few months. The entire process couldn’t have been any easier or less stressful for us. Thank you Don, job very well done!” — R. Corbitt

“Don Callahan was a pleasure to work with. He knows the business of selling houses in Savannah like no other. If you want your house sold (not just listed), he is by far the best choice.” — Seller

“Don Callahan is one of the nicest people I have meet in my entire life. He has impeccable taste and a keen eye for spotting talented people and home prospects. Don has always been my go to guy for anything real estate related. He as been involved in all aspects if real estate and construction, so he can relate in all levels. I feel for this reason he has an unmatched eye for spotting diamonds in the rough and most importantly those needles in a hay stack. I feel no matter which agent helps you there, Don’s hand and signature of approval will be on you side.” –– Jeffery Screen
