Thanks for the great review Mary & Tim,
I had a great time working together. Yes, it was a hard sale, however you did "CALL FIRKS 1ST" So of course we got it sold ;-) Keep Intouch. Dan
Dan is an excellent realtor. He has given us honest advice throughout the process, based on his experience, and we truly appreciate that.
We have enjoyed working with him, and plan to continue in the future.

Found a tenant for a Townhouse home in Aurora, IL.
Dan was able to help us rent our condo in a very short amount of time. It took great amounts of work on his part as we were coordinating construction, showings, credit checks, and applications all while out of state. His attention to detail and hard work helped us secure a great renter quickly. I would strongly recommend him for any real estate needs you may have.

Thanks for the great review Scott- had a great time working together again . See you in San Diego end of September!
Dan did in incredible job educating us about the market and how to get the most out of our home. He was incredibly responsive throughout the process and went above and beyond to help us sell our home. We had to move while the home was still for sale and Dan made it very easy to sell our home long distance all the way through the closing.

I had a great time working with you both. Staging your home was a blast. It got the house sold faster then we ever thought possible. Enjoy your new home and keep the referrals coming!
Seen Daniel Firks excellent reviews and thought I should contact his office. I was in a hurry to move from MI to IL due to work (had 2 weeks) . After I called his office and spoke with the receptionist, Jason Sunderland called me right back. He is one of the partners from Re/Max of Naperville who works with Daniel Firks. Jason is by far the best agent I have ever worked with. He goes above and beyond to help out in any way possible. He knew I had limited time to find a property and would only be here in the IL area for the weekend to look at places. He was very flexible with his schedule and we were able to look at over 7+ properties. I think if we had not loved the one we ended up getting he would have gladly shows us more. He knew what we were looking for and the price range and wasted no time in setting up appointments. We found a place in Naperville and absolutely love it! Jason is one of a kind! He truly loves what he does and it shows. He knows just about everything about the area. Anything we asked, he had an answer. He instantly made us feel like family and my 3 year old daughter calls him "Uncle Jason". Jason THANK YOU! for making this experience a memorable one and taking the stress out of moving in such a short notice! I now know who to call if I need to move again in the future and of course I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to any of my friends/family!

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Plainfield, IL.
Dan is a real pro. He always put my interests first, listed my house, got offers, and although it was not in HIS best interests advised me to not sell the property. I would enthusiastically endorse him, and if I ever needed help again, I would call Dan first.
This guy does outstanding work!

Thanks Tom, I had a great time working with you. I look forward to working together again! Enjoy this great weather and keep intouch! Dan
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $350K in Aurora, IL.
We contacted Dan for some help to buy our new home. We had a list of criteria for selection of the home like neighborhood, price, proximity to Metra station, home interiors, etc.
Dan maintains a good set of home listings and sent us regular lists of homes that matched our criteria. He was prompt and accommodated as many showings as we wanted.
He also has a great referral network. His recommended attorney and mortgage broker were really good. Once we finalized on our home he helped us with the price negotiations and it did not
matter to him that the negotiations were taking place at 11PM on a Saturday! The best part is that he is reachable even after closing and as I mentioned earlier has a great referral network and will be contacting him for
good contractors for home projects.
I will definitely be recommending him to my friends when they plan to take the plunge into home ownership!
