Our Team

John and Amanda McDonell are a husband-and-wife team for Compass Realty based in Danville, CA. Their realty practice comes from 15 years of combined experience and former backgrounds that perfectly complement the needs of sellers and buyers. Additionally, they are backed by Compass Realty which is known for excellence in cutting-edge technology, real estate training, knowledge, coaching and education.


John and Amanda have a successful track record of selling homes in a short amount of time for top dollar and getting buyers into contract in this unprecedented, competitive, Bay Area market. Working mainly by referral, John and Amanda believe the greatest investment they can make is in their clients, and that relationships and happy clients are more important than transactions. This approach has proven effective as 80% of their business is referral-based. They are never too busy for referrals!


The couple, and their young children Keira and Connor, live in the East Bay near their office. Both are third generation Bay Area natives with in-depth knowledge of the regional nuances within Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Each possesses a thorough understanding of how best to guide clients through highly complex (and sometimes emotional) real estate transactions. 


Tell me your home search criteria and I will get to work on finding your dream home. How important is the location, neighborhood, school district, or community?


Not sure if now is the time to buy or sell? Browse the listings to see what is out there. Set up a time with me for a consultation and we can discuss if now is right for you.


If you are interested in selling your home, provide me with the information about your home and I can provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis.


Plowing through multiple offers or submitting an offer that is accepted can daunting tasks. This is where I shine. Let me help.


Selling and buying? Timing is everything. I will work to help you sell at the right time for the right price while getting into your new home in a timely manner.


Often, my clients become lifelong friends and they consider me their Real Estate Agent for life. My relationships and their referrals mean the world to me.

Happy Clients
