Great job in all aspects. Felt extremely comfortable with his involvement in the entire home purchase process. Online, he showed several options, but would say the number that fit our criteria was daunting. I felt he suggested starting negotiations at a very low price, but that did little to budge the sellers from coming down at first. I still feel we got a good deal on our home and am very happy with Dan's service.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Naperville, IL.

Dan was a breeze to work with! He listened to what my fiancé and I were looking for and helped aid us in making the right price decision on the house we bought. He has gone on to refer people that he knows can help us with the various things we will need to have done to the house. We recommend him!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Romeoville, IL.

Dan was great to work with! I interviewed a couple of realtors and within minutes of meeting Dan I knew this was the right choice. Dan was very helpful in suggesting tips to improve the appearance of the house, making it more attractive to buyers. Dan was always easy to get a hold of and quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had. With Dan's help, we sold our house in only 4 days! We had four offers and ended up selling above asking price. I am certain that would not have happened without Dan's help! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dan to anyone in the future!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Joliet, IL.

My mother owned this townhome Dan sold for us in Joliet, Illinois. We both live out of state so we really needed to find a way to sell this place without the hassle of commuting back and forth to Joliet during the whole process. I found Dan and explained our situation and from there on out it was virtually a hands-off and hassle-free experience for my mother and I. Once I decided to use Dan he instantly went to work with his remodel crew to get it up to the standards it needed to be at in order to sell for a decent price. Within about a week the entire job was complete and it looked like it was just built yesterday. Once the home was listed Dan had it sold two days later! That's right... I said two days. Needless to say we were floored. Not only did he sell it in two days but he also sold it for the price we were asking dollar for dollar and this was in the middle of the winter in northern Illinois. We couldn't believe it. If you are purchasing a home in Dan's area or are needing to sell one there is no need to look any further than right here. The service he provided was world-class and words alone can't describe how impressed we were with his tenacity and his skills as a realtor. To let anyone else handle your home purchase or sale without giving Dan or a member of his team the opportunity to help you with it first would be big mistake. Thanks again Dan for a Job very well done!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Naperville, IL.

Dan helped us sell our home of 22 years in Brookdale. He was knowledgeable, responsive and had a whole team of professionals (landscapers, painters, attorney, contractors, inspectors) to assist in making a difficult process go as smoothly as possible. He is no nonsense, and very tactful.

Thanks for the wonderful review Cindy & Thomas, I had a blast working together on getting your lovely Brookdale House sold! The home was so awesome! The extra features & size bedrooms you had made the house very appealing to buyers. I'm so excited that I was able to get the home sold in our timeframe. I know you are going to be loving California, I'll come visit soon. Keep the referrals coming and call/email if you ever need anything. Enjoy your new California home! Dan

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

We were very disappointed with our experience with Dan. Things started out great he was super responsive actually worked with us over a few years getting us market updates, advising on updates that would help us sell etc. Once we signed with him it all changed he installed the real estate sign before we had written agreement to move forward leaving us trying to explain to family and friends why our house was for sale. Then he pushed his design services on us constantly having a suggestion on updates. We used his painters to do the whole house and it was an awful experience. He never brought a single buyer thru our house and was full of excuses. We had to push to lower the price because a quick zillow search showed us we were overpriced. Once we got an offer he really pushed us for concessions, and never once fought for us during the inspection negotiations. The lawyer did all the work and Dan went to Hawaii for the closing. He did none of the work and took a bunch of money for it. I would not recommend Dan to anyone selling their home!

Hello Patty, I'm sad to see this review. I'm not sure where it is coming from. There are so many falsifications, I'm not sure where to begin. 1. We didn't put up the sign until two days after the house was listed/paperwork signed. 2. My painters did the job you asked, it was not a design service, you said they were wonderful and you bought them pizza on their last day for a thank you. 3. My buyer’s agent brought three different buyers to the house to view and one for a 2nd visit 4. We had to reduce the price, you were asking 17% more than any other house in the neighborhood and your house was smaller. 5. The inspection only had a few items that where all very simple fixes, like tightening a faucet. 6. The kicker is my Hawaii visit, you knew this was going to be a bitter sweet trip. It was a family trip that was one of the last trips my best friends dad would ever go on. I truly wish you and your family happiness in your new home in California. Dan

Listed, but didn't sell my Townhouse home in 2015 in Aurora, IL.

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.

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!
