Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.375M in Parnassus - Ashbury, San Francisco, CA.
We have meant to write this review for a long time now. Dan was absolutely a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him without ant reservation. We worked with Dan in 2011 (I know, we are THAT delinquent in our review!) and the market was just heating up. We were competing against a number of bidders for a house on a beautiful street in one of the best neighborhoods in San Francisco. We fell in love with the place and after already searching for a house for 2-3 years, we finally felt that we found the right house and absolutely wanted to get it. Dan felt our love for the house and worked tirelessly over the course of a few weeks to help us secure the house. He was a trusted advisor, always offering sound analysis and viable strategies through multiple rounds of bidding and counter bidding, yet never pushing us to unreasonable levels of pricing just to close the deal. He also advised us to write a very personal letter telling the seller how much we love the house and will be the best people to take care of this place. We believe this letter made a huge difference in setting us apart, all else equal (we had to raise our offer multiple rounds as it was a very competitive process). Dan was very responsive throughout this nerve wracking process, on calls with us on a constant basis and meeting with us in odd hours. Dan was paying close attention to details and was very diligent in making sure that all pieces were moving along towards a smooth closing. We won the bid and closed it in record time! We cannot thank Dan enough for making this happen and highly highly recommend him to anyone who needs a trusted advisor in buying (or selling for that matter) a house. At the end of day, to ensure a great deal and a successful transaction, you need someone who is diligent, savvy with the market, tactful with strategies and not pushy for a close. Dan is that kind of person and we were so grateful that he was by our side in the most important purchase of our life to date. We plan to stay in our house for many many years and have been diligently sketching our our remodel plan :). Dennis Z.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $650K in Potrero Hill, San Francisco, CA.
Dan was a pleasure to work with from listing to closing. His approach to marketing the property was exceptional, and he was never too busy to address questions and concerns on a timely basis. He was able to get the desired results in spite of the fact that there were tenants living in the property during the sales process, and I (the seller) was living a continent away from the property. There is no question that I will use Dan as my agent if I have another property to sell.

Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Mission, San Francisco, CA.
To purchase a property in SF you need to be on top of things - react quickly and understand the dynamics of the market and the nuances that differentiate each neighborhood and each property. Dan is set to help you exactly with that. He cannot tell you how much you are willing to pay or where is the market is going (nobody is a prophet), but with his pleasant, positive attitude, patience and great interpersonal skills he helped me get the edge needed to get into contract and close. *It was hard to test his negotiation skills as I bought at times when sellers had a lot more power and every listing got multiple offers, usually above asking price.

Bought a home in 2013.
Dan was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. As a first time home buyer, I found his approach very soothing and laid back. However, he was savvy enough about the market to help me get my offer accepted. He knew exactly what to put in an offer to make it appealing, and he was with me every step of the way, even checking in with me after I'd moved in to make sure everything was fine.

I highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell or buy.

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $650K in Corona Heights, San Francisco, CA.
I moved to New York and had to sell my condo in San Francisco long-distance. Dan was an outstanding Realtor who literally took care of everything needed. Besides his great commitment, his advertising skills were unparalleled. If you need an agent, I would strongly recommend him!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $925K in Bernal Heights, San Francisco, CA.
I could not have been happier with Dan in my home search. Everything was taken care of for me. He did so in a timely manner. He was extremely reliable, everything he said he was going to do, he followed through on. He was very direct when dealing with selling agents. He was also very patient with me, even when I was rather indecisive at times. And when I was indecisive, he would offer advice and positive vibes! And never pushy. He gave me great recommendations for all related services as well. Thanks Dan!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $875K in Glen Park, San Francisco, CA.
My wife and I had a very pleasant buying experience in San Francisco with the help of Dan. He was very attentive and understanding in what we were looking for in a home, and took every step necessary to make the process convenient and easy for us, even if that meant it was inconvenient for him. Dan had specific expertise in the neighborhoods we were interested in, without him I don't think we would have known enough to make as confident a purchase as we did, and be as happy with our new home as we are.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $350K in Duboce Triangle, San Francisco, CA.
Buying in SF (and buying a TIC no less) is a huge undertaking. Dan is simply amazing at helping you read through all the disclosures, understand the implications, research the areas and comps, and negotiate for the right price. He is completely available and his friendly demeanor really made it that much easier to go through the lengthy process of loan qualifications, house hunting, price negotiations and finally closing and moving in! I would absolutely work with Dan again in a heart beat and you should give him a try too.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Cow Hollow, San Francisco, CA.
I referred Dan to a friend of mine who was trying to by a short sale condo in SF. Not only did Dan save him from some fatal errors, he held his hand and walked him gently through the process. These type of sales are a rough ride at best but my friend was very happy with Dan & the quick close for a really great price. Whenever I hear of any friend considering buying a home, I immediately put Dan’s name on the table & tell the success story above.
