"Dan Suich was the best real estate agent in the world for me and helped me find my dream home. It was about a 15-month journey and like Virgil guiding Dante through the Inferno, Dan guided me through the trials and tribulations of the real estate market to my Paradise of a home! Dan has to be one of the best agents/guides out there for every step of the way.

In the beginning I was on a steep learning curve as this is my first home purchase. Dan taught me how to identify the regions to look in, about things to look for structurally in houses, and how to detect serious potential problems in the structures and on the property. By the time I found my home I was educated and informed enough to know this was it. It was the first property I made a offer on. I got the bid and the closing went completely easily and smoothly thanks to Dan.

Dan made getting through the enormous amount of paperwork not only easy but enjoyable and educational. The people he recommended for me to work with including Paul Laterza for my mortgage broker and Holly Potenziani for my Escrow Officer were excellent. Every professional Dan has recommended (handy men, contractors, locksmiths, etc) have been knowledgable, expert, and especially good with customer service.

I am a professional musician so did not have a million-dollar budget. Dan regularly deals with very upscale properties and treated me just like a multi-million-dollar client. He returned every call or email promptly, took time to get to know me, and had the perfect instinct for knowing where to let me think about things and where to jump in with advice. I always felt totally supported and understood through the entire process. As well as being a super real estate agent Dan is a very intelligent, informed, great guy with a wonderful sense of humor."

"I would highly recommend Dan for your next real estate transaction. Dan is not only our friend but he helped us purchase our first home and served as a wealth of knowledge and a great guide along the way. He introduced us to his mortgage broker, Arlo Zoerner, of Summit Funding, and through the efforts of the two of them we closed the deal. Even when we hit a rough patch in escrow when our first appraisal didn't come close to where our offer was, the two of them renegotiated with the sellers on our behalf for the next week or two and got the escrow back on track. I know Dan has great customer service skills and they were very responsive to us throughout the whole period."

 “Dan was very professional and responsive. He was a hard worker, and I would refer him to any friends or colleagues. Dan was helpful from beginning to end.”

Claremont Hills homebuyer

“Dan greatly facilitated the purchase process for my investment property—the paper work, the property visits, and the recommendations. I appreciate his hard work, guidance, and friendship.”

Oakland M.D. and investor

"I bought my first property with Dan. I had no experience and he took the time to explain everything to me. I then bought a second one with Dan as well. These are properties for investment and he was really helpful in finding them and getting the deal done in a timely manner. Dan is very responsive and always available. Once I bought my condos, he helped me to advertise them, and in less than a week my two condos were filled with tenants, thanks to Dan. For sure I will use Dan's service again for my next property."

Gilles A.
Oakland property investor

“Dan was instrumental in helping me find an investment property. His market research was excellent and the entire process was enjoyable. His expertise in negotiating was critical in acquiring the property I wanted. I would recommend Dan to any buyer of a residential property.

After remodeling this property, I again called upon Dan to list the property for sale. He produced professional marketing materials and helped with the pricing of the property based on solid comparable properties. The property sold for full price within two weeks of the listing. Dan facilitated all aspects of the sale. He can be counted on to represent anyone in the sale of their property.

I was very pleased with Dan’s real estate skills—as well as with the quality of the documentation he produced. He provided excellent service and I cannot be more pleased with the results of his outstanding efforts. He was always easy to contact and readily available to help. Overall, I would give Dan the strongest possible recommendation, as he provides work of very high quality, he is honest, and he is interested in doing the job right and doing it well!”

"I recommend Dan enthusiastically and without reservation.

Dan went above and beyond. Even though his primary focus is in the East Bay, he schlepped down South a half-dozen times to show me properties in Santa Clara, Sunnyvale and San Jose. I ended up with a great property in a rapidly-appreciating neighborhood in an excellent commute location at an unbelievable price.

I look forward to Dan's help in building my real estate empire."

San Jose homebuyer

"Dan made selling our home in Oakland a stress-free experience. He continuously listened to our needs and concerns, all the while maintaining a positive attitude and a sense of humor. Dan has so much experience, too. He always knew what he was doing and took care of so much of the process so we could focus on our careers and family."
