"Dan was extremely patient and efficient in finding me my first home! I gained a ton of knowledge from him as well as solid contacts through the whole buying process. I’m so grateful to have had Dan, he really made buying a home so easy. Thanks again! " - Asia S.
"Dan was absolutely amazing, he went above and beyond while showing our unit, which multiple open houses which resulted in an o er after only a couple of weeks. We were under contract for quite a while, and Dan stayed on top of us and the purchasers the whole time. We would absolutely recommend him." - Brett & Todd
"Dan was a fantastic realtor. Not only did he commit himself 100% to selling my previous property -- working diligently to get me the best price -- but I chose to work with Dan to find a new property. Dan made sure that he was doing what was right for me and my needs, not trying to get me into a home or property that would just result in a quick sale for him. Dan was consultative, understanding and a lot of fun to work with. I can't say enough good things about Dan and how he went the extra mile for both selling my property, and finding a new one." - Paul F.
"Daniel Mercurio put considerable effort into understanding our tastes, budget, and timeline for purchase. He knew the Lakeview and North Side markets very well and was a helpful resource during showings. When it came time to put our place on the market and navigate contracts, Dan was there for guidance and acted as our fierce advocate. We are very pleased with our decision to go with Dan. " - Sarah H.
"Dan's knowledge of the neighborhoods we were looking at was top notch. He knew which questions to ask given the properties we were considering, and fought hard with our interests in mind. He wasn't afraid to ask the hard questions, making an otherwise stressful process seem fun and enjoyable. We felt like everything Dan did was personalized to meet me and my partner's needs, and seeing interactions between other agents and their clients made it clear to us that we were working with the best. Dan loves his job and excels at it. We were completely privileged to work with Dan, and would recommend him to others in a heartbeat! " - Aaron and Garrett
Buyers' Agent, Listing Agent, Relocation, Developments, Rentals
Dan’s approach to real estate is a natural extension of his designer’s eye. Design came organically to Dan at an early age and by the time he was in high school he was already running his own landscaping and holiday decorating business.
His knack for design led him to visual merchandising in Chicago, and now he consults with some of the most respected luxury brands. You’ve probably admired his work if you’ve strolled along the Magnificent Mile recently.
With Dan as your real estate agent, you have the combined skills of his visual eye; he can see the potential of raw space and appreciate the bones of a house, but also let you see past the window dressings, if you will. You also have an advocate; he would never allow his clients to buy a place he himself would not consider. His standards are high and his ethics unbending. He values his client relationship and trust above making the deal.
