Bought a Apartment home in 2012 for approximately $675K in Central Sunset, San Francisco, CA.
I have just purchased a property in San Francisco with Dan's help. As a first time home buyer, Dan has guided me through the whole process patiently and professionally. He answered all my questions and requests, and gave me good advice along the way. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and families.
I have only had one dealing with Daniel; that was when I was visiting the area and specifically wanted to take a look at a condo in Sausalito. Daniel responded immediately to my call and within minutes came round to show us the unit. He was professional, courteous and efficient in his follow up. Whilst we did not purchase the unit, nevertheless I was impressed by Daniel's business ethics and would have enjoy have work with him in the future should we once again decide to look in the area.

Thank you Nigel! I would welcome the opportunity in the future should you be looking again in California to perform my full FIVE STAR service as your Realtor.
Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $400K in Novato, CA.
Dan was absolutely instrumental in helping us buy our first home! Little did I know at the time, that it was an uphill battle at times. We were armed with an FHA loan with little down, in a terrible housing market. The home we wanted was steps away from full foreclosure. Anyone who has been through the process of purchasing a short sale or foreclosure knows how daunting this can be. Dan never wavered in his dedication to us, helping us secure the deal and gently navigating us through the mountain of paperwork! My husband and I were extremely anxious about the red tape and stress over the short sale. Dan kept the smile on his face, always professional, always reassuring. We really don't think we would have the house we're living in right now if it weren't for Dan.
Sold a Single Family home in 2008 in Mill Valley, CA.
Dan is fantastic - he went through my house and reviewed it in detail. He listed what improvements would mean the most for potential buyers, when the best time would be to list my house, what price would be realistic and attractive to buyers as well as how best to market the house. He's extremely knowledgeable about the market and he has a great eye for architectural details that can show off a house. I felt very comfortable asking all the questions I had - he has a great attitude and is easy going. It was so nice to find a broker who didn't try to push me into a decision, but laid out all the information I needed.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $675K in San Rafael, CA.
I’ve spent years considering a home purchase, visiting countless opening houses and always with same impression of the agents I'd met: “I’m not working with that guy.” I would still be in my rental had I never met Dan. He was the first to respond to an online inquiry to see a property and he just showed it right. He was on time, easy going, knowledgeable and not in the least bit pushy. But I was most impressed when he said “I’m not sure about that, let me do some research and I’ll let you know.” Then he actually found out and followed up with us. And that is how I got my agent.
It only took a week to find the perfect place, and then the real fun began. Bids, negotiations, contracts, inspections and phone call after phone call answering all of my many questions, sharing experience and introducing me to his network. And what a great network he has of everyone from inspectors to escrow agents to brokers, which in my opinion is a major value add of working with Dan.
I’m skeptical by nature, but Dan won my trust quickly and did an excellent job throughout the entire sales process. He has great follow up skills, which is exactly what you need to drive a home purchase to close. He is calm under pressure, which is another required skill, b/c there will be bumps in the road. And he is also a very nice and friendly guy, which is good b/c we’ve spent a lot of time on the phone together.
I would 100% recommend Dan Nebenzahl to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in Marin--he did a fantastic job from start to finish.
