I live in Los Angeles where I have had three home selling and buying experiences. But my mother lived in Palo Alto and we needed an experienced Bay Area agent to assist us in selling her property when she passed away.
In all my life I have never met or worked with a better agent than Dan Ziony. Saying he went above and beyond is an understatement. He was hands on from the very minute we took over her house, helping me with every detail. There was so much to do to get the house ready for sale, and he was EXTREMELY sensitive to the emotional nature of this process for me. The people he recommended for inspections, repairs and staging were top notch and reasonably priced. He was very clear on not wanting to waste a single dime where there would not be a substantial ROI.
Since I live in LA, I had to handle a great deal of the process remotely and Dan project managed the whole thing, was accessible to me at any hour, was patient, honest, thoughtful, and sincere. He did not overpromise or blow smoke about the home's value, and yet because of his diligent marketing and smart pricing strategy, we exceeded our expectations as far as price and strength of offers....the house sold in just a few days.
We could NOT be more thrilled with an agent. He is the most professional and knowledgeable agent we have ever worked with. I cannot recommend him enough.
