★★★★★ Wonderful Experience – Very smooth transition! We wanted to make a move to The Villages but we were scared of selling our home in Sunnyvale and and not having a place to live, while we looked for a home in The Villages. Don explained that this was a common concern with many of his clients and he went over in detail, his strategy and timeline of how we could make the transition without any worries, get Top Dollar for our home and still negotiate the best deal for our new home in The Villages.
We are very happy to say that “everything went as planned.” Thank you so much Don!

★★★★★ The Villages Expert! We chose Don and the Silicon Valley Real Estate Team to help our family with their trustee sale of their home in The Villages. Don helped us understand the entire process and walked us through of what to expect during the sale of our family’s home. He had referrals for cleaners, painters, flooring and handyman…we used all of his recommendations to prepare the home for sale and were extremely pleased with the outcome.
I would recommend Don Orason to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Villages...or anywhere in Silicon Valley

★★★★★ Don is a miracle worker. We needed a real estate agent who could sell our home while we were out of the country – Don was nothing but professional, competent and transparent throughout the entire process. He took a home that was not yet in a presentable state, and helped us turn it around at a minimal cost. I was very impressed with his honesty and commitment to respecting both his client and the potential buyers. The house was ultimately sold at a price that was quite a bit higher than our asking price. Best of all, this was done thanks to his truly professional and a collegial spirit throughout. I think all parties involved were very satisfied with his services.

★★★★★ Awesome! We met Don a few years back when were thinking of selling our home in the Silver Creek Valley area. Don was one of the 4 agents we interviewed at that time and had something special that me and my husband both felt. He just came across as truly wanting to do what was best for us and always gave us honest answers to all of our questions and concerns.
When the market got much better we finally decided to sell our home in Silver Creek (needed to downsize) and move to Almaden Valley. So we called Don and we are so grateful we did! Everything worked out better than we ever imagined, he has a wonderful team around him. Sold our home for more than we expected and bought a great home with no hassles at all, everything went smoothly.
We put our trust in Don and the Silicon Valley Real Estate Team and now have a new friend in the real estate business that we will refer to all of our friends!
★★★★★ We are very pleased that we chose Don to sell our townhouse in the Villages. The process went very smoothly. He dotted every i and crossed every t. He made it very simple and easy.
We buy and sell a lot of houses and I would rank Don at the very top of the list for overall satisfaction.
★★★★★ Don’s dedication to his work and his passion showed in everything he did. His advertising and marketing strategies were absolutely amazing and the results were far better than we could have ever expected. The property we listed, we felt needed some work and we were still able to get top dollar!
We were so pleased with his communication and follow through. He guided us through the negotiations by giving us valuable and very helpful information about the market and never pressured us to make any decisions that felt uncomfortable. He kept us in the loop throughout the entire process and thoroughly explained every single step and detail along the way.
Don was incredible to work with, he just simply gets the job done and we will continue to work with him and the Silicon Valley Real Estate Team exclusively.
★★★★★ Don is awesome! He is a true professional, very knowledgeable in all aspects of the Real Estate process, and treats you with the utmost respect. He is honest and does his work with the highest standards and integrity. His team is awesome too, and also reflect their professionalism and caring throughout the process. It’s not an easy process to sell your home, but Don is so caring about every little detail that what could be very stressful ends up being just the opposite. You feel confident during the entire process, even when things don’t go as you planned.
Don has your best interest at heart, and is a truly caring and genuine person. He has really helped my husband and myself in the sale of our home; he walks the talk! I highly recommend Don and the Silicon Valley Real Estate team.
★★★★★ Wonderful Experience! After interviewing 4 other agents to list my home, I met with Don and I instantly felt comfortable and truly believed he was the best person for the job. Don showed and explained to me the different ways he would market my home to bring in the most buyers and get the highest price. I let him do his magic, and after only 2 days on the market we had multiple offers and my home sold for even more money than I could have hoped for. I am so glad I chose Don and the Silicon Valley Real Estate Team. I suggest anyone reading this, to give Don a few minutes of their of time, so he can explain what he does to market homes… He is the best!
★★★★★ Our experience far exceeded our expectations. Don and his team’s marketing strategy resulted in multiple offers on our house and an excellent offer ready for us to sign three days after the open house. We think that’s pretty incredible. We are still getting comments nearly 60 days after the sale on the quality of the Internet presentation the Silicon Valley Team created for our home. We believe the marketing strategy used is the number one reason we got so many buyers at the open house and an offer so quickly.
We hadn’t moved in 35 years and thus the decision to sell our home and downsize was a hard one for us to make. We knew the community we wanted to move to, but we didn’t anticipate being able to find a house that would suit us as well as our original house. Don found the perfect house for us in the community we wanted and he and his team helped us find a financial solution so that we could be the winning offer on the property…We now have a home in the community we desired at a price we could afford.

★★★★★ Don’s approach to handling real estate sales is beyond reproach. His ability to guide us through the real estate process gave us a sense of calm that other agents we interviewed didn’t care to do. Don’ effort to communicate every aspect of the real estate sales process is what makes him a consummate professional. Their marketing strategy was impressive and provided us with many offers to choose from. Don gave us time-lines that were realistic and acceptable. We will use Don’s team for all of our future real estate needs and have already recommended his services to friends and family.
★★★★★ I had a great experience with Don and his team both in buying (in 2008) and selling (in September, 2014). They are very talented, knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. You can’t ask for much more whether you are buying or selling. I would highly recommend them.
★★★★★ Don was very responsive and willing to meet with us at our convenience even changing his own schedule for us. He was thorough in preparation of all paperwork and turned around documents quickly. Don was always friendly and courteous. He was knowledgeable of the area and had experience in both buying and selling homes in the area in which we were looking.
★★★★★ Don helped us find and purchase our home in Silver Creek. We took over 6 months to pick the right home and Don was extremely patient and was always available to show us property. We felt very comfortable with him and trusted his knowledge of the area. Thank you Don for helping us get the home of our dreams!

★★★★★ This is the third time for us buying a home. I don’t recall how exactly we met Don but I am glad we did. Don is a consummate professional, he keeps his appointments, never rushed us and was always available to answer questions. The buying process as is typical tends to be a long and nerve wrecking process, Don helped and guided us through the process and although he didn’t always tell us what we wanted to hear, we knew he was being honest and looking out for our best interest. He worked hard to leverage his contacts and help us where possible and made the arduous process of home buying bearable. We trust Don and I would highly recommend him.
★★★★★ Don helped us to get our townhouse on the market at an opportune time where we received multiple strong offers above the asking price. He knows what sells in the area, what improvements to make and how to market to generate alot of interest. The signing process was a breeze using docusign and I received a cd with all the final paperwork. He was very responsive to questions and addressed issues immediately so that the contingencies could be addressed quickly. Don and his staff made selling my townhome relatively stress free and we received top dollar.
★★★★★ Don and his team were awesome from start to finish! Every question was answered and the process went very smooth! House was extremely well presented with photos and video. I would highly recommend!
★★★★★ While Don is very knowledgeable and experienced agent who has worked with many clients and different situations (which are two very important qualities when looking for the right agent), Don and his team really differentiate themselves in the fact that they are great to work with. Don and his team provide exceptional service and genuinely care about their clients and their best interest. I would definitely recommend Don to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!
★★★★★ I first found Don on his internet site when my husband and I were considering a move to the San Jose area. He set up searches for us and periodically checked in to see if we needed any additional information. Once we actually moved, we realized that if you like a house, you need to move quickly as homes were receiving multiple bids and moving quickly. Don made himself available to show us homes at a moment’s notice. He suggested an area that we hadn’t considered and as a result we fell in love with the area and bought a wonderful home in a great neighborhood. Don and his staff advised us at every step and it was clear that he was looking out for our best interests. We trust Don and wouldn’t hesitate to have him represent us again, should we ever move.
