"We are very excited and fortunate to have Brian join our team of highly trained professionals," said Carol Materniak, branch manager for the Long & Foster Lewes and Rehoboth Beach offices. "The combination of Long & Foster and Brian's unique skills and knowledge will no doubt provide the highest level of service to local buyers and sellers."

Donahue's goal and passion is to exceed expectations by communicating, educating and coaching clients through every step of the buying and selling process. As the retired principal of Cape Henlopen High School, Donahue is deeply rooted in the local community and state of Delaware. His 33 years of experience as a successful Delaware teacher, coach and principal have provided him with a unique set of communication, negotiation and customer service skills that he will use when helping clients achieve their real estate goals and dreams.

Brian lives in Rehoboth with his wife Susan, who is the principal of Rehoboth Elementary School. He also has family members who live throughout Sussex County and Delmarva locations including Rehoboth, Milton, Millsboro, Bethany, Angola and Chincoteague Island, Va.

Donahue has lived in the communities of Lewes, Rehoboth and Millsboro over the past 26 years. He lived in the New Castle/Wilmington area for the previous 30 years. He has developed an extensive knowledge of these communities, developments and school districts. Having bought and sold numerous homes in Sussex and New Castle counties, Donahue understands the excitement and joy that comes with working with a caring and prepared Realtor. He would like to provide clients with the same caring and stress-free experience by eliminating surprises and coaching them through every step of the buying and selling process.
