Sold a Multi Family home in 2014 in Mission, San Francisco, CA.
I contacted Dan in the Spring 2014 after receiving a number of very well designed pictures and text about properties he had listed or sold in San Francisco. I contacted Dan by phone and promised that I would let him know in due course about my plans to sell my two unit building in the City.
In August, after experiencing some health issues, I flew back to Palm Springs to see my doctors here. I experienced a heart attack and during my convalescence made the decision to sell my SF property and contacted Dan. He had always been my first choice. I stressed that I hoped the sale would happen without my returning to San Francisco, and he assured me that it would. He was as true as his word. He covered all the bases to advertise my building and within a very short time we discussed the best offers (all over listing price) and settled on the best one.
Using electronic/internet and Dan's counsel and expertise, the required inspections, documents, etc., were signed. Dan kept in constant touch, when it was necessary, and was aided by his most able assistant, Tom. Escrow closed the first week of 2015 without only minor delays which can often happen with this type of transaction.
I'm happy to say that having owned five properties either in San Francisco and the Palm Springs area, Dan Dodd was the best realtor by a wide margin.
I would recommend Dan Dodd without hesitation. He knows the San Francisco area, and many of the top realtors in the city. He is most knowledgeable about property values in San Francisco and does the research necessary to back up his recommendations. Whether he represents the buyer or seller of a property, I believe his honesty, reliability, and integrity are without question.
Showed home in 2012 in Financial District, San Francisco, CA 94104.
Dan Dodd is extremely professional and courteous. He showed us numerous homes and never ran out of patience with our indecisiveness. Although we ended up moving from San Francisco and did not buy a house, Dan still treated us with utmost respect and courtesy. I would recommend him highly.
Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $550K in South Beach, San Francisco, CA.
As a busy professional I really needed someone who could do a lot of the groundwork for me when I started thinking about buying a home. Dan was able to hook me up with an amazing mortgage broker to handle the loan, and was extremely patient while I went through the prequalification process prior to actually looking at homes. Dan really has his finger on the pulse of the San Francisco real estate market, which enabled him to show me a great selection of properties in the neighborhoods I was interested in. Once I found the place I wanted to buy, Dan explained every step of the process to me, and worked diligently to get me through all of the paperwork and other intermediate steps with very little stress. He was also very good about updating me about our progress, and then letting me know what to expect for the next steps. I would highly recommend Dan as a real estate agent, and will plan on using his services again if I ever decide to sell my home.
Dan Dodd is terrific. I've never owned a home and had no knowledge of the process. He sat with me and explained every sheet of paper I had to sign. Dan came to every inspection and deciphered what was being said so I could understand. His recommendations for reports were fantastic. Though Dan represented both the seller and buyer he was so honest with each of us we were comfortable and didn't seek outside counsel. This sale probably was the fastest in history thanks to Dan's work to get things done quickly. I highly recommend Dan Dodd to sellers and buyers!

Dan is absolutely the best of the best. All of his other reviews are spot on. I was a first time homebuyer and going through all of the nervousness, second thoughts, and worries that come with buying property in San Francisco. From the very beginning, Dan was extremely patient, knowledgable, and took the time to answer all of my questions and make me feel 110% comfortable with the transaction. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone who knows real estate better than Dan. But more importantly, Dan takes the time to treat his clients with the highest care, professionalism, and class. That is what separates him from the rest. Don't waste your time on other agents, Dan will take great care of you and make your purchase very pleasant and easy.
This is the second property sale Dan Dodd has undertaken successfully for me! He is smart, professional and great to work with. He can be reached either immediately or within a short time and that is important when problems and concerns come up out of the blue.
Dan has resources such as painters, repair men, locksmiths, and cleaning services who are first rate!
Without hesitation I would recommend Dan Dodd for anyone looking for an agent to sell a property. Coldwell Banker has one of the best in him!
Dan is top notch- very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He has a good sense of humor and can also really take care of business. He is a great agent to have on your side. I would recommend him without hesitancy for anyone looking to sell or buy.
Dan was excellent throughout our process. He's not pushy when it comes to making decisions, he gives you the information you need and lets you make your own decision. This characteristic was very important throughout the process and helped us get the exact place we wanted. He has excellent knowledge of the market and is very diligent, patient and responsive. Highly recommended.
Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $525K in Outer Parkside, San Francisco, CA.
Dan was a pleasure to work with. He's honest, professional and had our best interests in mind. He gave us great negotiating advice, had a deep understanding of the San Francisco market, and was ultimately able to effect an excellent purchase.
Along the way, Dan made sure that we understood the process and implications of each step and commitment we were making. He took the time up-front to get to know us and understand our needs and goals. He worked really hard, keeping us updated in realtime, including evenings and weekends.
He conducted a thorough search and set up automated searches that were more detailed than what we were able to do through public MLS services. We found an ideal property for our needs within a month, and were able to close within a few weeks of making the offer.
He showed up promptly to all viewings, and engaged the seller's agents to gain as much insight into the nuances around each property and potential sale.
Dan was both pro-active, responsive and technically savvy. We were able to review and sign the majority of the paperwork for the transaction online, and he was very responsive both by phone and email.
I can't recommend Dan highly enough. We've worked with several agents in San Francisco, and the difference was night and day.
Bought a Single Family home in 2007 for approximately $1.175M in Inner Sunset, San Francisco, CA.
Dan has a solid understanding of the drivers of value in SF real estate. As first time homebuyers, we absolutely benefited from his ability to listen, synthesize and test the limits of our comfort zone from a location of properties perspective. The reason I would work with Dan again ... Responsiveness. Having worked with different agents on putting together prior home offers, the difference in service and attention was substantial. Dan has a terrific sense of humor and helped make the challenging San Francisco real estate market much more manageable.
