Testimonials

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!"

"Dan is a great agent. He stuck with us through a very long and tough buying process and then a difficult sales process of our condo. You can count on Dan to always show up when you need him, always respond, always have an answer to your question, and to be professional throughout."

Dan & Danielle
Home buyers/sellers

"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."

Oakland home sellers

"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!"

"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."

longtime local area resident

"My wife and I were very lucky to find Dan Suich, a rare combination of smarts, patience, and perhaps most importantly, humor. Buying a house in the bay area can be tricky and Dan amiably helped us every step of the way. We began our search looking for one kind of property, but when circumstances forced us to put our search on hold, Dan was extremely sympathetic and extended himself above and beyond the call of duty.

When we resumed our search a year later, Dan was happy to begin the process again—even though we had revised what we were looking for. We were a little worried that he wouldn't take us seriously, but he was happy to start anew and help us find what we were looking for. He put us in touch with wonderful people—everyone from our mortgage broker (Paul Laterza is a gem!), to the inspectors.

Dan was always prompt in responding to our emails and he was very good at listening to what we wanted and how we felt about the houses we looked at. Prior to meeting Dan, we encountered realtors with whom it was difficult to connect and who came across as very insincere. We never felt like Dan was telling us what we wanted to hear; he is honest, reliable, hard-working, and fun to be around. He was instrumental in helping us purchase our first house and we can't imagine having anyone else be a part of the process!"

Berkeley homebuyers

"We can't say enough good things about Dan. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, clear, good with the details, and has great resources in the area. We were new the area, and it was great to have an agent who really knows the market all around Berkeley. He was extremely patient with our shifting needs and sensitive to what we wanted. He ultimately navigated us through a really difficult sale with some challenging sellers. And he's a a lovely guy -- not a pushy sales guy at all. We highly recommend him."

Berkeley parents and homebuyers

"As a loan agent in the Bay Area for the past 14 years I have worked with many realtors over time. Dan Suich is clearly a cut above. He cares for clients at a high level. In the Oakland/Berkeley market the conditions are currently very tough on buyers so you need an agent with many qualities. Dan Suich is that agent. He is aggressive, persistent, and really works hard on behalf of the family who is purchasing to help them accomplish their goals. Sometimes this is very difficult as some buyers have less than a perfect financing profile or structure of loan, and that is where Dan's professional help really makes a difference. If you are looking in the Oakland/Berkeley market or any of the areas close by make sure to give Dan an opportunity to help you with your home purchase."
