"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 fiancé, 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."



"Dan is very responsive and scheduled easily over a dozen tours around my schedule. He goes above and beyond and even helped push my car out of the snow when I got stuck outside of a condo we toured! We found an excellent condo that I am very happy with!"



"Dan provided significant value to the search process. His experience and efficiency quickly reduced inventory and allowed us to provide additional focus on properties that met our requirements. He was prompt, friendly and courteous at every showing and often pointed out features (positive and negative) of each property. We ultimately decided on a home that met our top five requirements: 1. Attached Garage, 2. Master Bedroom on First Floor, 3. Ready to move in with minimal rehab within 3 weeks of purchase, 4. Large Kitchen, 5. Neighborhood Safety. We would certainly recommend Dan and/or use his services if required in the future."



"Dan is everything you want in a real estate professional. He puts his customer as his number one priority and goes above and beyond to get the job done. He sold our house in 9 days under some very unique circumstances. Dan exceeded our expectations in every category including local knowledge, process expertise, responsiveness and negotiation skills. If I could give him 6 stars I would."



"From our initial meeting with Dan, we knew he was going to be great! He is very personable and very accommodating. We are first time homebuyers and were learning along the way and it meant a lot that he was always available for questions and would spend hours with us in a day looking at places. Dan is very reliable and wants the best for his clients. He helped us land our perfect place! Dan is an agent that you can count on as well as show you the way to your perfect home!"



"Dan was very knowledgeable about the Sauganash area, fair market values, and home purchase process. has a lot of beneficial connections in the community and was always willing to spend as much time with us as we needed. Would definitely recommend him!"



"When we began the process of searching for a condo, we had no definite idea of what we were looking for and we were unfamiliar with the city. Dan was supremely patient while we gradually discovered what we wanted. His opinions about specific neighborhoods and buildings were useful, and his explanations about the best approach to making an offer given our constraints helped the deal go through without a hitch. We'd interacted with several agents before on both sides (buying and selling). For the purchase we settled on Dan because he struck us as honest in addition to experienced and hard-working. All these turned out to be the case. Dan is a terrific agent."



"It was a pleasure working with Dan. This is the first time home buying for us and he made it very simple and easy and explained the process to us in simple terms we could understand. He does not pressure you into anything. He simply discloses all information without trying to sway you in any direction other than your own. Been a great experience."



"We met Dan Fowler last year during our search for a multi-bedroom condo on the North Side. Dan was very helpful and patient with our needs. He steered us in the right direction making sure we had enough information to make our own decisions. Dan expressed an interest in finding us the right property immediately and proved to be very easy to work with. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a property!"



"Daniel was exactly what any home buyer should expect and look for from an agent. This was my first time buying a home and it went really smooth. I highly recommend using Dan, hes knowledgeable , friendly and does a fantastic job, top to bottom! Thanks Dan!"



"Dan reached out when we made an inquiry into a place when we were in the very beginning stages of thinking about buying. He checked in every few months to say hi and see if we were still interested, not putting any pressure on us, but guiding us to neighborhoods we might like and sending alerts.

After almost a year we decided to start looking more seriously and Dan was ready to take us out to show us places of interest. The first place we saw made an impression and he walked us through the process of purchasing. We decided to go for it and Dan was incredibly helpful, answering questions and keeping in constant contact with the lawyers and pushing the process along. We closed in just over a month!

The entire process from start to finish was easy and we felt very comfortable with Dan as our guide. We would highly recommend him."



"Dan is a great agent. He helped me find multiple properties in the areas I was looking and in my price range. Dan was always available to answer my questions whether it was regarding a property or the process itself as I was a first-time home buyer. He always let me know what was going on and the next step(s) in the process. He is incredibly easy to work with and I strongly recommend him."



"Dan is very knowledgeable, professional and personable. I definitely would recommend him to anyone and hope to work with him again if needed. He helped me find my 1st 3 flat and had the knowledge, patients and empathy to put up with me throughout the entire process. I think other realtors might have given up on me but Dan stuck with me and we made it to closing.

Thanks again Dan!"



"As first-time home buyers, Dan was great to work with! He was patient with us throughout the process, educated us every step of the way, and worked hard to show us a wide range of potential homes that met our needs. We would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for a home!"



"Dan, was absolutely amazing. We would definitely recommend him to others and we have already recommended him to other friends who are also looking to buy a place. He is extremely responsive and has a lot of knowledge about the market.

Do not think it twice, Dan is your guy."



"Dan was truly amazing. He priced the home perfectly and he attended every showing. Even after the contract was signed he fought for me during inspection and attorney review. I don’t think anyone knows Sauganash/Edgebrook better than Dan. He also created these booklets of the property that were really high class. He has great stagers and photographers all lined up. Selling and Buying real estate is stressful but with Dan you can relax because you know he is taking care of it!"



"We chose Dan to purchase and later sell our home in Sauganash. He has significant expertise in the neighborhood and homes within it. He was very attentive and responsive, helping the whole process move fast. He has a lot of contractor contacts to get any needed work done. Plus he was a great negotiator! You’d be making a mistake not to pick Dan!"



"Dan sold our house in about two months in the dead of winter. He gave us very sound recommendations during the process. He recommended that we pay to stage our home and it did, indeed, sell quickly. He was very knowledgeable about the paperwork and closing process. We have already recommended him to friends."



"Dan was very responsive throughout the entire home purchase process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of questions throughout and Dan was consistent in his communication and ensuring we were comfortable with each step. It was refreshing to have someone in your corner and not just pushing decisions in order to make a sale. Dan was also patient and accommodating as we viewed a good number of properties prior to our decision. I would highly recommend Dan Fowler for anyone looking to purchase or sell a home."



"We were lookng for a property in the North Center and Lake View nieghborhoods. Dan sent us listing information daily, and when we wanted to see a property, he made sure to get us in immediately. The market was very active in that location at the time, so timing was very important. Dan also knew the area very well. You can tell he has a passion for real estate, and is very eager to assist in any way he can. He also has an eye for seeing the possibilities in a property that might need some updating. In prime locations, getting a read on the market is also important. Dan was able to tell us if multiple offers were being made, and he made sure we moved quickly. The end result was my son purchased a great house in a great neighborhood at a great price, and everything went smoothly."



"Dan was a great Realtor. He helped me buy my first condo and as I find myself in a better financial situation Dan is going to help me sell the condo and buy a different property. I highly recommend his services."

"Dan really knows his stuff! He is down to earth, approachable, and makes things easy to understand. He was the selling agent for my home. He helped me price it right and it sold quickly. This was the first time I ever sold a home. Dan is super friendly and non-intimidating. He made things very easy for me to understand and he took the time to make me feel comfortable with every move we made. He was available at any given time for a simple question or concern.

"In 2011, My partner and I decided to make the jump into the housing market. Buying our first home was a little scary, nerve wrecking and stressful.

Dan gave us valuable advice when negotiating on price, and let us know when we needed to come in strong. This ultimately led to the purchase of our condo, which ended up being valued higher than the sale price.
Finally, Dan gave us solid recommendations on everything from lawyers to mortgage companies to inspectors. Many times we used those Dan recommended and received the same level of service and valued experience.
I'll definitely recommend Dan to family and friends."



"Dan is the best broker! He helped us sell our condo in record time and find the perfect house. He also found my mother's condo and will be selling her house next. He is so patient and helpful, he made sure we were happy during the entire process. Some agents are pushy, overly eager to complete a sale, but Dan made sure we did things right, and with respect to our schedules. He even gave us incredibly thoughtful gifts after the purchase and sale of our homes. I cannot say enough good things about Dan. I am so grateful that we worked with him and I recommend him to everyone."

"It was an absolute pleasure working with Mr. Dan Fowler. He is an experienced professional that I was very fortunate to have assisting me with the sale of my house. I say he assisted when in reality, he did all of the hard work. He got started very quickly and sprinted non stop to very end. He was well aware of my eagerness to complete this sale, yet took the necessary time to get the best possible deal. He made things very easy for me by keeping me updated and sending me the necessary documentation as soon as it was available. Best of all, he always answered my calls and emails promptly. My inquiries were met with possible options and the best advice his experience had to offer. Thanks again Dan for all of your hard work. On a scale of 1 to 10 you are definitely an 11."



"Daniel Fowler is truly a professional at what he does and is very knowledgeable with the real estate market.
We were selling our condo and at the same time looking for a single family home in the same area. Our Condo listed with Daniel Fowler was under contract within a week and with asking price!!
Daniel, simultaneously was looking for single family homes for us in the area and went above and beyond to accommodate our busy work schedules.

When we found the right home, the transition between selling our condo and the purchasing of our new home can be very stressful, Daniel was able to make the process of buying and selling a home at the same time, smooth and as effortless as possible.
If your in the market for a home or selling yours, I highly recommend Daniel Fowler."



"Hello! Dan Fowler helped my family buy our new home. While it was at the top of our rather variable price range, he never pressured us to go for it -- in fact, he asked repeatedly if we were sure this was the place for us.

Dan sold our previous property on the first day of listing. I credit this to the fact we followed his advice to a T, fixing, painting and decluttering where instructed. He sold my friend's joint in about the same time period.

Dan was always patient, responsive and positive -- even when I was less so. I recommend him highly for anyone looking for a true professional."



"We had a wonderful experience working with Dan! Being first time home buyers, we did not know what to expect and had a lot of questions. Dan was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and had our best interests in mind. I highly recommend Dan for your real estate needs."



"My wife and I worked with Dan to find a single family home in the city. We had a very particular taste and also had some tough and indecisive moments, but Dan was super helpful, patient and great throughout the process. His guidance form beginning to end was very professional and clearly he knows his stuff. He also helped us sell our condo at the same time and that went all as smoothly as possible."



"We were first time home buyers and Dan helped us tremendously! He walked us through every step of the home buying process and was always there to answer questions we had. He helped us with placing two different offers and recommended a wonderful loan service. We never felt misguided or unsure on our first journey to buying a home!"



"We were first time home buyers, and a bit nervous, but Dan was really helpful throughout the whole process, not pressuring us one way or another and making sure we ended up in a house that worked for us. He walked us through all the steps, and helped take off a lot of the stressof buying. He even gave us our first house warming gift at closing! I would recommend him to anyone."



"I worked with Dan on the purchase of my first condo, and had an exceptional experience. I'd recommend using Dan in the strongest possible terms. Dan -- a lifelong Chicagoan -- has vast local knowledge -- and a track record of success as a broker in the Chicago area. Dan is both well organized and highly attentive to details. Dan was aware that even small changes could make a big difference in a listing, and he was always on top of it. Dan always return my calls promptly and my texts immediately. Dan has a wide array of connections and was able to book showings on short notice. His relationships with other realtors made the whole process much easier. Dan is also polite and positive all the time. He's not afraid to speak up on your behalf, but he'll do it in a way that will help the situation. Dan was able to negotiate a better price using these skills! Dan is very hardworking -- he was tireless in looking for the best condo, setting up appointments, and helping me through the maze of paperwork. Dan always had the answer to any question. Perhaps his top quality is his honesty. Dan is a guy you can trust to do the right thing on your behalf. I highly recommend Dan!"



"I had a wonderful experience with Dan Fowler. When selling my property he instantly knew people who would be interested and I had a bid within days.

"Dan was so easy to work with, and the team he works with made buying our first home so pleasurable! Him and his team are very responsive, and answers questions quickly, which is one of the main reasons our experience was so great."



"I had hired another realtor prior to hiring Dan who was not successful in marketing my home. Once I hired Dan, he was "full steam ahead" to get my home sold, which was refreshing after wasting 4 months with the other realtor. Dan was responsive and knowledgeable about the market and how to market my home. The home sold within 2 months of listing it. And, closed shortly thereafter. I'd highly recommend Dan. Dan was a total pleasure to work with - responsible, helpful, communicative."



"We really enjoyed working with Dan.

"Dan was great! He kept us informed every step of the way and helped guide us through any problems that arose. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family."


"Dan made a stressful situation of relocating from thousands of miles away a breeze. His knowledge of neighborhoods in Chicago allowed us to narrow down our search to find the neighborhood perfect for our lifestyle. You can tell he takes a lot of pride in finding the right place for his clients and providing honest feedback on value. He took the time to show us several dozen places and we couldn't be happier with our final choice. We would highly recommend Dan for anyone that is new to the area or a local looking for a new place."
