Clients are saying:
"Dan Kawabata is the best broker we've dealt with in all of our past real estate experiences. His professionalism and knowledge surfaced throughout the sale of our property, from start to finish. He was confident, upbeat, supportive, ALWAYS available, 24/7, via phone, text, email, or in person. His support, advice, and suggestions were tremendously appreciated. He went above and beyond what was expected of him. What should have been an uncomplicated sales transaction turned out to be just the opposite. Dan was there for us, holding our hands, calming us down, guiding and assuring us that what was taking place was not abnormal - just a roadblock to be circumvented."
"Dan was always extremely responsive. When a question was asked he either responded immediately or forwarded to the right person. Our transaction had a few hitches from my lender at the end and he helped it pull through."
"Dan went above and beyond to ensure our deal was successful. I appreciate his attention to detail and ability to influence all parties for a successful outcome. I would recommend Dan for future deals and know that he will work as hard for you as he did for us."
"Hard working, diligent, and extremely responsive. We were happy with Dan's representation of us. Definitely look forward to working with him again."
"Dan had knowledge of building construction and valuation that rivaled only the most seasoned inspectors and appraisers. He helped us avoid what would have been some costly mistakes and hustled to get us the first showing on what is ultimately our new dream home."
