Bought a home in 2013.
We just bought a home in Cape Coral (moving down from Buffalo) and Dan is absolutely the most professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and hard-working realtor I've ever worked with. What initially attracted me to Dan was his amazing web site (topwaterfrontdeals.com). When we were trying to decide WHERE in Florida to move, Dan's web site was an amazing treasure trove of information about Cape Coral, the canals, boating, the climate, and more. It answered just about every question I had.

The next reason I absolutely loved working with Dan was the fact that he is NOT a high-pressure salesman. I contacted two or three different realtors in South Florida when I was initially looking for a home. The others were so pushy they completely turned me off. Dan answered all of my questions, gave me the information I asked for, and followed up professionally, but wasn't at all pushy. I really like that.

Next, Dan set us up a custom portal on his web site where we could browse through all of the MLS home listings and pick the ones we like. We could set options such as number of bedrooms, bathrooms, Gulf access, pool, etc. We could flag houses we liked, and didn't like, and then Dan reviewed them with us. He helped us pick 5 or 6 houses and pointed out problems that we missed with some of the ones we did like (such as the whole Chinese Drywall problem). Some days I would just randomly get an email from Dan, "yeah, that house you selected yesterday only has 2 bedrooms." Oops! I know he was looking out for me.

We set a date to visit Cape Coral to look at houses last month. Dan drove us around ALL DAY, looking at several different places. Sure, most realtors will do this, but Dan was a real pleasure to hang out with for the day. He pointed out the good and the bad with every house we visited, gave us insights into the neighborhoods, the boat run times out to the Gulf, and so on. He really knows the area.

While we were in the "deciding" process, Dan took the time to answer the 20 MILLION emails I sent him about all of the different houses we liked. He really went above and beyond the call of duty. I felt like I was being annoying at times, but he was polite and courteous answering me every time, and always prompt returning email.

We finally decided on the perfect house for us. We initially had some financing challenges, but Dan helped us through those. He was also able to negotiate a good, fair price with the seller. He handled all of the paperwork, scheduled the necessary inspections, dealt with the Title company, and even recommended local businesses for us to work with for different services we'd need (pool maintenance, lawn care, etc.)

Dan made the home-buying process VERY easy. I always felt like Dan had MY BEST INTERESTS in mind, and I will DEFINITELY use him again when the time comes. I can't recommend his services enough. If you need a realtor, Dan is definitely your man.

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $75K in Fort Myers, FL.
Don't waste time with any other agent. Dan Starowicz is the best real estate agent to use whether you are buying or selling a home. He is terrific in all respects; knowledgeable, energetic, thoughtful, honest, professional, patient, responsive and incredibly skillful at working with people. He goes more than the extra mile. He is the agent you want working for you if you are selling or buying real estate in SW Florida.

I needed a buyers agent that I could trust, to work for me in finding investment property in the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area. I do not live in Florida, so I really leaned on Dan to provide me with the kind of local knowledge of the area that only someone who lives there his whole life would know.

He was extremely helpful at every stage of the process, beginning to end... Visiting properties in person, taking extra photos for me, arranging inspections, sending me all pertinent paperwork in a timely fashion, submitting offers for me that protected my interests, and even recommending (twice) that I back-out of a couple of offers when things didn't look quite right to him, even though it meant losing his commission. Now THAT'S integrity!

Dan is the best real estate agent anyone could ask for, PERIOD. Dan will LISTEN to what is important to you and not try to push you into options that don't meet your needs. He is very dedicated to keeping up with current listings. His website, topwaterfrontdeals.com has a wealth of information.

If Dan is representing you, then you know you have someone looking our for YOUR interests. Class act all the way!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $25K in Cape Coral, FL.
Dan is obviously a real professional. He knows the area very well and has a lot of knowledge. He responds quickly and cares your interests. He gave me some tips that were worth me money and surely I would not enter the area without make a call to Dan. It's also highly recommended to visit his site. I found a lot of essential information.
