This Is an unusual review, but well worth reading. My husband and I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, and did not meet until we both "fled" to the beautiful Oregon coast in the mid 90's. We both worked for state and federal parks, love the outdoors, and are extremely happy after 15 years of mariage. My husband is nearing retirement, and we both are longing to buy a retirement property in Eastern Oregon, which we also love very much. We have a wonderful, secluded little farm and forest property on the central coast, which we thought would sell almost immediately. Unfortunately, due to reasons we are still not sure of, we are having a very difficult time showing it to potential buyers. We located Dan on the internet last summer and were very impressed. Dan is a very knowledgeable, professional, kind and honest man. We were impressed with him from the very start, and still are. Dan did not sell our property last summer, but never had much of a chance. Dan's skills at internet listings are extraordinary, far over and above any other real estate agent. It seems that our property is so unique to the area, and also so secluded (no "curb appeal") that it is very difficult to get potential buyers to just come take a look. We decided to take the house off the market last winter and re-think the situation. Dan suggested ( now what agent would ever do this!) that he may be too far away to help us, and that we may want to try to list with a more local agent. WELL, the local agents here don't compare to Dan, and the one we chose has not shown our property once in 3 months! Well, we are going back to Dan, and back to the drawing board. We are confident that if anyone can sell our precious little farm, he will. We have every confidence in Dan as a man of integrity and professionalism. We know that with God's help, Dan is going to help us find the right person, who will fall in love with our property, and then we will be able to buy our dream retirement property in East Oregon. Dan is a wonderful person, and an outstanding agent! We can say that even though he has not sold our house ...YET. But he will!
