I hired Dan to sell my mother's home near Branham High School. Bottom line, if you are looking to sell a home in the San Jose area I don't think you could find a better agent than Dan. He did a spectacular job and sold the home quickly and for more than we expected (based on comparable recent sales looked up on Redfin).
My mother had just turned 90, and finally
realized she shouldn't be living on her own anymore. She decided to move in
with my sister and I volunteered to manage selling her home. Since I live about
an hour's drive north of San Jose I decided to use Yelp to find a local agent.
I set up interviews with the top three rated agents from Yelp and met all three
at my mother's home. While all three agents seemed very competent and suggested
listing prices within a few thousand dollars of each other, Dan stood out. In
part because he showed up with his photographer, stager, and handy man, all
ready to hit the ground running to help us get the house on the market. He also
had another agent from his office, Jennifer Marley, who had extensive
experience in our particular neighborhood.
Dan has terrific resources. My mother's home was over 35 years old and had never been remodeled. We didn't want to spend a lot of money but it needed to be "refreshed" to show well. Dan's team help clear the place out, make all the necessary repairs that turned up in a home inspection, replace the carpeting and flooring, repaint the entire interior and do some exterior retouching as well, all inside 2 weeks! Total cost was less than $20K. I think we more than doubled this investment in the increased sales price of the home.
Admittedly it was a hot market, but still, Dan held two open houses on the first weekend, had 5 offers lined up by the following Tuesday discussed the pros and cons of each offer with us and we ended up selling the home for substantially over the list price and closed in less than 30 days. Does it get any better than that?
As I said at the top, I don't think you could find a more honest, competent, and professional agent. Dan has a "Can Do" attitude and is a pleasure to work with.
I have known Dan for many years before having him represent us in the selling of my grandparents house. Dan not only sold the house, he managed a number of contractors and repair persons to update the house before putting it on the market. Dan also coordinated the staging which really made the house look great! The sale was very complicated with probate and an attorney involved. Dan was very methodical about each step to finally complete the sale. He is a great negotiator and will look out for the client's best interest. The bottom line, if you want a trustworthy professional Realtor, contact Dan.
I had the pleasure to have Dan as my agent for selling my house and he did a great job for us. We were selling the house in a tough real state market with multiple houses offered for sale all around the block, but ours was the only one sold. We did a short sale and with all the stories I heard about the complexity and frustration of a short sale process, I personally had a very smooth one. From start to end in a record 4 month for a short sale when most people takes them a year to finish.
Dan is very professional, has great positive attitude and a friendly approach to handle both the seller and buyer. Even when we had problems with the buyer and thought it will fall apart, Dan was able to look beyond the problems and provide the big picture view to bridge the gap and bring closure to the sale.
I would highly recommend Dan for anyone looking for a good service in the real state industry.
I met Dan through a mutual friend when my house mortgage was in trouble. Dan is a kind of person who really loves his job and like to help people in need. He explained every detail of the process. At one time he even drove 50 miles to my wife's workplace just to have the paper signed and back to my house. We owe you a lot Dan. He is highly recommendable. If any of my relatives or friends needs real estate assistance I will not hesitate to recommend Dan. Dan is honest, sincere, dedicated, friendly and professional. The first day I met him, it was like he has been a friend of mine for years.
Keep up the Excellent customer service, Dan.
I have been looking to buy property in the Bay Area for a long time without much luck. I was referred to Dan by someone who thought he could help. Dan is extremely professional, patient, and knowledgeable about real estate, especially in San Jose and the surrounding area. I was very impressed by his always positive attitude even when driving long distances to show me property. At one point I felt like we had looked at so many houses that he would "fire" me as a client (one agent actually did because he said I wasn't serious about buying a house!), but Dan just laughed and said we were getting closer to meeting my needs and he wouldn't give up.
Dan was able to get me into a shortsale townhouse in Fremont that is perfect for my needs. Even though it was a shortsale, he navigated all of the parts effectively and efficiently and while other shortsales I've bid on, this one from offer to close was just a little over a month. I'm still amazied. Dan and his team know their stuff.
I would not hesitate to refer anyone looking for a home to contact Dan for help. You won't be sorry.
I want to thank you, for helping me to get my first home. With your help I got the perfect home for me. I really liked how you were always willing to do some investigating on homes and areas that I had found. You really worked hard to find me the right home. You promised to find me a home and you did! You are a very confident Realtor. I would recommend your services to any one who is in need of a Realtor.
Thank you, again for helping me.
Dan helped us purchase our first family home and he exceeded all expectations we had for a realtor! He was organized from the very beginning of our realtor/buyer relationship. Staying on top of all our requests, keeping us up to date on all our favorite properties, and putting us in contact with any other necessary resource we needed. Every need we had was taken care of during the entire process by Dan and we always felt like we were in good hands. He made himself available to us anytime of the day and even late on the weekends. Dan went out of his way to visit us during the big move into our new home, dropping off dinner to keep us going for the night.
I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking to purchase/sell a home!
