Peter & Sandi Sparrow

“Donovan Homes have built a number of homes for us over the last several years, and we’ve had nothing but great experiences with them. Phil, Lisa and Craig have been great and any time we’ve needed anything they’ve been incredibly helpful. The houses they’ve built for us over several years have all been built exactly as planned, and we’ve had absolutely no issues with any of the properties. We will certainly be building another house with them down the road.”

Jeff Tupper & Katie Wakulicz

“We chose to build with Donovan Homes based on their professional reputation and the quality of their past builds. The depth and expertise of their team provided constant communication, customization and an exceptional final product that we are proud to call our home. Working closely with the Donovan Homes team we were able to customize design plans and make our own selections for both interior and exterior fixtures. No hidden costs, no surprises, no delayed deadlines - we are fortunate and proud Donovan Home Owners. Thank you, Donovan Homes!”

Jen Murphy & Barry Hannon

“We were looking to upsize, move into the city and closer to work. We prefer a hands-off approach, and Donovan Homes stepped up and handled everything. We've been in our home for just over a year and love it as much as the day we moved in!”

Abdul & Ashma Quaiyun

“In 2014, when Ashma and I were searching for a home to settle into in St. John's, we were very interested to see the Donovan Homes designs and options offered. And here we are in 2015, with an astonishing view of St. John's from our beautiful home. Thank you Krista, Dianne and the rest of the Donovan Homes team!”

Fran & Jack Pugh

“Like most married couples, the empty nest begs the questions, 'Do we sell our family home?' 'Do we really need all this space?' 'Do we really need all this stuff?' For us, we certainly didn't need a big family room, and more importantly, we didn't need all these levels of stairs. We did, however, still have a requirement to accommodate those visiting children who no longer live in Newfoundland. We decided on a bungalow with a garage. The fact that we are here in St. John's, near all the amenities, and have a beautiful view of our city is a bonus. Thanks to Donovan Homes and their professional and personable staff who helped us design and build this house, our new home!! We couldn't be happier.”

Ken & Juanita Hrychiuk

“When we moved to St. John’s two years ago, we rented a house in Kenmount Terrace and began our search for a home to call our own. Juanita and I looked at houses in many of the subdivisions around the metro region, without finding anything that we really liked. Then one day we were driving around the neighbourhood and realized that there were lots still available on Nautilus Street. We contacted Krista and she very skillfully guided us through the process; Donovan Homes built for us a fantastic house in a unique area with a stunning view of the city. There is always a lot of anxiety and pressure when building a new house, but thanks to Krista and the Donovan Homes team, we were able to easily get through that and take possession of not just a new house, but a comfortable, enjoyable new home.”

Colin & Sara Barry

“Right from our initial sit down to the final day before occupation, the Donovan Homes team from top down were a fantastic company to work with in our first home build. The very reasonable base price of the home was what first caught our eye. The flexibility the company allowed us in customizing our build to fit our needs and interests coupled with the quality building materials (especially the use of plywood, not chipboard) only added to our positive experience. In any home build there are some hiccups along the way, fortunately, from our experience, Donovan Homes prides itself in accommodating these issues in a timely and effective manner. We would highly recommend this company for any customers looking to get off on the right foot with any residential building pursuit.”
