Clients are saying:
"We didn't have any agent and were lucky to have Dan respond to our call for info on a property. He was great to work with from the very beginning, was very helpful and patient explaining things to first-timers like us, his recommendations for attorney, inspector, etc. were great, and the most important thing, we found our home!
I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone looking for a house in Chicago."
"Daniel is a great realtor and wonderful to work with! He helped my husband and I find our dream home and was able to sell our home in under one week! Daniel was extremely professional throughout the whole process yet he made it fun and not stressful! He is very knowledgeable about the different areas of Chicago and the real estate market. He prepared us for every step in the process and was always available. The best part about Daniel is he is an honest guy you can trust. We highly recommend Daniel and would definitely use him agin in the future."
"Dan is a down home Chicago guy who will straight shoot with you v. blow smoke up your behind about all the great features of a property. Don't get me wrong, he does plenty of advocating about the pros of a place but in a way that doesn't pretend to be earnest while just hoping you bite to get his commission. Let me give you an example...we visited a property that I absolutely LOVED on the inside, but its location was less than ideal for a single female walking home alone. He could tell that I really wanted this place, but when I asked him to honestly tell me whether he'd be comfortable allowing his mother or his sister to live here alone...he said no. That was all I needed to know that he truly was the right man for the job. He was the second agent I'd worked with and put the first lady to shame. He takes his job seriously, i.e. doesn't show up in yoga pants with last nights mascara smudged down his face (ok, to be fair he is a guy, but that actually happened to me with my first agent and it was so unprofessional). He is a genuine, hard working agent who I felt truly wanted me to be happy in my new home. He dealt with all of my first time buyer questions like a pro and even put up with some off the wall inquiries from my parents, who insisted on accompanying me to re-visit properties that were on my near perfect list. He navigated a tricky and less than savory sellers agent with professionalism and still a strong arm for getting the items/price adjustments I wanted. I've recommended Dan to my best friend and her fiancÃ©, and, if I'd recommend him to two of my dearest friends, why not also recommend him to you! Good luck, with Dan you won't need it."
"It is such a pleasure working with Dan through this very involved, and intense (but fun too) process of buying a new home. This is the first home for my husband and I and our two girls. Not knowing how to go about this was overwhelming but Dan has really been a gem in explaining it all and breaking it down in terms I understand. I love that he does not pressure you into anything. He simply discloses all information without trying to sway you in any direction other than your own. He is such a solid guy, we love him! There is nothing phony or fake about him and we would recommend everyone use him!"
"My husband and I were very impressed with Dan as a broker and as a person. He sold our condo for us in 2 weeks and then helped us buy our house in the next 2 weeks. He helped us price our condo right to sell and was informative but not pushy admist our house hunt. We completely trust him and have only known him to be sincere and friendly. I would highly recommend Dan to any and all looking to sell or buy and will definitely use him again in the future if we choose to buy/sell our property."
