As a licensed California attorney, a real estate broker, and with many years of experience in real estate financing, founder Christine Donovan will be your trusted consultant in purchasing or selling your most valuable asset, your home.

Welcome!

We specialize in helping home buyers and sellers with their real estate needs in Orange County, particularly coastal Orange County – Newport Beach, Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach.

If you are looking for help realizing your dreams of buying your first home, building equity, investing in your future or reducing your debt load, then you have found the right place.

As a licensed California attorney, a real estate broker, and with many years of experience in real estate financing, founder Christine Donovan will be your trusted consultant in purchasing or selling your most valuable asset, your home.

She founded Donovan Group Realty in 1999 after a successful career as a corporate attorney after realizing that her real estate experience and law experience would combine to provide an invaluable benefit to her clients.

Christine’s family is very involved in Southern California real estate, and perhaps her decision to continue the tradition was inevitable, being the fourth generation in real estate. She was put to work at a young age copying loan files and learned to process loans at an age when most have yet to begin high school.

As a result of our beliefs and our background, our goal is a simple one, to build strong, lifelong relationships with our clients by using our knowledge and expertise to help you simplify the complicated and important process of buying and selling your Coastal Orange County home.

In addition to traditional buying and selling of homes, we are experienced in assisting homeowners who are upside down in their homes and who are facing possible foreclosure and would like to discuss the alternatives, including short sales.

If you are interested in knowing about the first time buyer programs available through local cities, please email us.

Do you owe more on your home than it is worth, are you concerned that you may be facing foreclosure, please email us to set up a free consultation to discuss the 10 options for avoiding foreclosure.
