Testimonials

"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."

"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."

"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."

"Dan and I were scientific colleagues at Chiron, a biotech company. Dan is an extremely smart "go-getter". His scientific training gives him the ability to think creatively and solve problems. This experience gives him unique skills for being successful in real estate. I would highly recommend Dan as a Realtor® and if I were selling my house, he'd be the first one I would call!"

Dan is a great agent and I would highly recommend him. It's been wonderful, thanks so much Dan for all of your hard work. We're very happy in our new home!"

"This was our first home purchase and Dan was fundamental in making it happen for us. He ended up being our agent by chance when he was randomly assigned to us by his company, but we could not be luckier. We believe that his skills and contact network greatly simplified the acquisition process for us. He is very professional and responsive during to whole process. He has our trust and respect, and we would surely recommend Dan to anyone considering buying a home!"

“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!”

"Dan helped me buy my first home. I was a total rookie and he guided me through the whole process with patience and kindness. He was always available to answer my questions and never put any pressure on me. After helping me find the perfect house, he had outside resources come in and evaluate any potential issues so I knew exactly what I was getting. I felt very informed and confident that I was making the right choice. When it came time to make the offer, Dan navigated and negotiated his way through heavy competition and closed the deal (it helped too that his darling wife was also rooting for me!). I am now a happy and proud home owner and if I ever need any advice, or professional resources, Dan is the person I call.

I highly recommend him if you're buying a house!"

My partner and I really enjoyed working with Dan. His mix of experience, knowledge and great personality can't be beat! We found a house much faster than we expected, thanks in large part to Dan's excellent guidance. After our offer was accepted, he helped get us through a couple of rough patches with the seller and close the deal. If we ever sell our new place, Dan will be the first person we call, and I will recommend Dan without reservations to friends who are looking for an agent as well.

"Dan helped my wife and I find our first house and I would absolutely recommend him for his excellent services!

He is very thorough and has great connections with lenders and title companies for a comprehensively streamlined experience from going to open houses, communicating with listing agents and coordinating the escrow/closing process.

As my wife and I are in the architecture and design profession, we were very particular about our needs and one of Dan's talents is his ability to listen, provide feedback and tailor listings based on our desires and needs which we find quite rare among all the other potential agents we inquired with.

Best of all, in a hot market, we were able to find our dream home, compete in bidding, and close in a very short amount of time. His ability to understand and predict the market was impeccable. His negotiation and communication with the listing agent helped us get to where we are and we are so happy with his performance. It was amazing how quickly we went from just looking at the home to closing and moving in! : )

I strongly would recommend reaching out to Dan for any real estate needs and will pass his info to anyone in our network looking to buy or sell. He was the perfect find for our needs and am sure he will continue helping others throughout his bright career!"
