About Us 

Kevin H. Donlon was raised in the San Joaquin Valley in Stanislaus County on the family ranch. His upbringing gives him a genuine understanding of agricultural practices and lifestyle. It is no surprise that Kevin’s area of expertise is in agricultural real estate in what has been his backyard.

Kevin is well educated in the area of real estate practice. He has been licensed as a California Real Estate Broker for 10 years.  He graduated from St. Mary’s College of California in 2001 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Spanish. He has a Master’s Degree from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota in Geographic Information Science (GIS) with an emphasis in Real Estate. Perhaps his greatest education, however, has been from his business partner and father, who is one of California’s top selling Brokers.

Shane P. Donlon started farming on the Westside of Stanislaus County after graduating from St. Mary’s College of California in 1964. He has farmed as much as 1,000 acres at a time, and it is this experience that has given him a depth of knowledge relative to soil, water, diversity of crops, etc. In 1965, he obtained his real estate license. Most of his sales volume has consisted of irrigated farmland.

He has served on the board of El Solyo Water District since 1970 and is well acquainted with critical rules and regulations concerning water rights, especially as they apply to California farmers. He feels that his most treasured accomplishment is the plethora of friends he has made throughout his business career.


Donlon Realty is owned and operated by Shane and Kevin Donlon. During its 45 years of business, total sales for the company have exceeded $350,000,000.

We are privileged to be members of the agricultural community.
