Sold a Single Family home in Los Gatos, Purchased a new home in Los Gatos, CA.
We used Don Perry for the sale of our former home and the purchase of our new one. Don's invaluable experience garnered us the best sales price on our old home; while his negotiation skills helped us get the best price on our new home. We don't want to move again, but if we do we will without a doubt use Don again. He is professional and responsive and knows the market. He goes out of his way to assist in every step of the buying and selling process. He also has relationships with other highly professional people for appraisals, mortgages, building and pest inspections. It was a pleasure to work with Don. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an agent with high integrity and the utmost professionalism.

Bought a home in Los Gatos, CA 95030.
Don differentiates himself in the marketplace in 4 primary ways primarily because of his experience as the former Mayor of Monte Sereno and as a former builder/developer: (1) Don is very smart about taxes and the numbers around buy/sell agreements which make for win/win for buyer/seller; (2) he knows PRECISELY what the local town Planning Commissions will and will not permit. I did a $1M renovation in downtown Los Gatos of a $2.5M house he helped me buy and my prominent architect and contractor were right on most but not all predictions: Don properly predicted each of about 20 different discretionary permit changes we sought from The Town from trees to Historical Committee issues to plumbing and stem walls, etc); (3) great communicator/responsive/all hours day & night, and (4) Don can tell you off the top of his head +/-10% what a potential change to your building/property is going to cost....useful as you are trying to model possibilities for a new property under time pressure.

Sold a home in Los Gatos, CA., Purchased a home in San Jose
Don Perry is the realtor you've always wanted.... He is personable, full of integrity, responsible to a fault and always looking out for the welfare and needs of his clients. When we were looking for our home, he went way out of normal service and filled our long list of special needs with his willingness to do whatever was necessary to provide us with what we needed. We recommend him without reservation. Don is always ready to answer questions about any matters of buying or selling houses and when he doesn't have the answers, he gives us immediate resources to find them. If you want a reliable, honest and conscientious realtor, Don is the best.
Bought a Single Family home in Sunnyvale, CA.
We have known Don Perry for several years. He helped us with the process of buying a new home (we were first-time home buyers) in a very competitive neighborhood. Don was fantastic to work with (and still is a great person with whom to chat the real estate market). He helped us navigate the complex process for the first time, fairly evaluate properties, guide us towards opportunities that suited our financial and personal needs, negotiated on our behalf, and more. He did it all with amazing expertise, professionalism, and honesty. We will most definitely plan on working with Don for our next real estate transaction.
Sold a single family home in Saratoga, CA, sold a second home in Los Gatos, CA, and purchased a home in Los Gatos, CA.
My husband and I met Don Perry several years ago when we were looking for our first house together. He represented us both for buying our new home and selling of the pre-marriage homes. We liked Don because he is not sales-y (if that is a word) and he really helped us get what we wanted. He worked very hard to get a stubborn seller to negotiate a reasonable deal so we were able to get our dream house. He is always on top of things and making sure nothing is stalled. He is very knowledgeable and got a good price for the properties we sold in a tough seller's market. We highly recommend anyone who is looking for a fun-loving but focused and effective realtor to work with, call Don Perry.
Sold a Single Family home in Monte Sereno, CA, Purchased a home in Los Gatos
I've known Don for over twenty years. He's represented me twice; once when I sold my house in Monte Sereno and later when I bought my current house in Los Gatos. In addition to being a great person Don is a great Realtor. He pays attention to the details, keeps his clients best interests in mind and is extremely thoughtful ad reliable. A classic example of Don going "above and beyond" was when I sold my house in Monte Sereno. The inspection showed I had issues with rust on the foundation brackets. After I spent a couple of days finding a trying to find a contractor to help remedy this situation, Don set me up with a contractor he knew that both corrected the issue but did so extremely cost effectively. This is just one example that I can think of where Don has gone above and beyond. The bottom line is I recommend Don with no reservations and will engage him again the next time I am in need of a great realtor.

Sold a Single Family home in Campbell, CA.
Don has been an excellent agent. He has followed up on every request for information within the hour. He has been able to explain every step in the process in layman's terms quickly to ensure we knew exactly what we needed to do to take the next step. I have referred friends to him and all have been amazed at what a breeze buying or selling a house was with his guidance. If family were in the area, we would not hesitate to put them in direct contact with Don for all of their real estate needs. When we sell our current house, we plan to call Don!

Purchased a home in Los Gatos, Sold a Single Family home in Los Gatos, and Purchased another home in Los Gatos, CA.
We have known Don Perry for several years and he has always been our "go-to" realtor for all real estate transactions. He has represented us on both the buying and selling side for a handful of transactions. He has also been present and available during refinances to help us get the most value out of our properties. Don is quick to respond and answer any real estate questions. He is always on top of current market trends and a wealth of knowledge. We highly recommend anyone who is looking for a realtor to work with Don, you will be pleased!

Sold a Single Family home in Los Gatos, CA.
We first met Don when we moved to Los Gatos in 2008 and he sold us our townhouse. He and his family live in town and so he was incredibly helpful in explaining the schools, local amenities, etc. When we decided to buy a single family home, we listed our townhouse with Don, and within a month he had a buyer for us. He worked really hard and is extremely responsive to phone calls, texts, emails, etc. at all hours! That is really important because everything seems "urgent" when you are dealing with the stress of a real estate transaction. We have become friends with Don over the years and highly recommend him.

Bought a Single Family home in Alamo, CA.
Don Perry was amazing to work with. As first time home buyers he educated us on the process and made us feel confident every step of the way. He was always easy to reach and very responsive. He has a keen understanding of the market and was able to negotiate to get us an ideal purchasing price. He made our experience of buying a home feel easy and gave us the confidence to know we were making one of the best decisions of our lives. Don is the best realtor in the area and I will alway use him for any future real estate transactions.
