Team reviews

I met Dan this past October and was very pleased with his professionalism and kindness... He is a truly down to earth real estate agent... I had gone to my bank, which was Bank of America and got preapproval, so Dan asked me what type of house I was looking for and I told him, but later on through the process I changed it to a townhome with a view. Dan showed me several places, and some more than once. He was very involved during the inspection, the approval to close and with my attorney to ensure we closed on time, March 13th 2015... And we did... Hats off to Dan and I have been singing his praise to everyone I come in contact with, and will continue to do so.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Oswego, IL.

Dan was knowledgeable and easy to work with. He was attentive to our needs and helped us sell our house FAST! He was realistic with his estimate of the sale of our home and ensured everything we needed was taken care of as we were out of town. Dan is definitely the way to go!

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Bolingbrook, IL.

Dan was absolutely amazing at getting our home prepared and on the market. He was there every step of the way on giving advice, helping us identify the best deals for painting and cleaning our home for a new tenant. He was unbelievably responsive and available to answer any questions. We had an overall fantastic experience working with Dan and his team. We would strongly recommend him for anybody that wants to sell or rent their home. Our home rented within a week!

Thanks Dan!

Sold a home in 2015 in Plainfield, IL 60490.

Our home had been on the market for almost a year before we listed with Dan. And right from the start he and his team impressed me with their professionalism and attention to detail. His knowledge of the area and marketing techniques greatly increased our chance of selling our home. And just a few months after listing with him, we received an offer. We recently closed on our home and we were able to purchase the house of our dreams with Dan's help! The entire process from start to finish was seemless and I would definitely recommend Dan Firks to anyone in need of a realtor!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Aurora, IL.

We used Dan for both the purchase and sale of our home and couldn't be happier!

He helped us get our home ready to sell without having us spend too much money, which was really appreciated. We would highly recommend him! He was very knowledgeable and was great to work with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Bolingbrook, IL.

We could not be more pleased with Dan Firks and his professional and responsive team of associates! We found Dan on Zillow after reading several raving reviews. What struck us the most was his personal response to each review. Either, this guy was too good to be true, or he was the read deal in real estate. He's the real deal.

After our first conversation, he quickly followed up with a thorough email that provided information about his services and resources on purchasing a new home. We were first time home buyers, so this information was extremely beneficial to us.

He referred us to an excellent mortgage broker and real estate attorney. This guy is golden and keeps good people around him. I trust that he wouldn't refer us to anyone he didn't trust himself.

Home buying is stressful, and it makes a huge difference what kind of support you get from your real estate team. Dan and his team was always readily available for us and provided great communication. This meant a lot when we had questions or needed clarification in the legal aspects of the process. He provided a heads up on each step along the way, and we never felt in the dark. He also was honest and clear with us, which meant he didn't lead us to keeping our hopes up or overpromising.

We were in a unique situation, after we chose to pull out of a short sale with a difficult seller. In the mean time, we entered a contract for our dream home (it was a traditional sale). We were in limbo for a few weeks, working between both parties. Dan and his team were super supportive and worked down to the wire until we finally closed.

We love our home, and forever grateful to Dan Firks.

This is your guy. Stop looking any further.

Daniel is very good at what he does and that is probably why he is a busy man and the initial few communications were handled by his team which made us second guess his responsiveness. He has a prompt team, by the way! But once we met him, he put all our doubts to rest and continued to impress us with his energy and attention to details. He helped us make informed decisions every step of the way. We were on a time constraint and he kept up by covering as many houses as possible in 2days. Gave us space when we had to discuss something. He was on top of all negotiations and follow-ups! He is the best and we can't imagine anyone else could have been better!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Chicago, IL

Tried to initiate contact with Daniel, but he didn't seem to listen to my specific requests and just put me on an automated email blast of listings. Overall he seemed too busy to work with me so it wasn't a good fit.

Sorry about the confusion. When you first signed up for home listings you clicked on the link that you didn't want to receive any personal calls or emails. You said that you where just browsing. We never received any calls or emails from you so we left you to do your home search with out any calls/emails from us. When you first signed up, you didn't give us a number to call, so we couldn't call if we wanted to. I apologize things didn't work out. Happy Holidays! Dan
