About Daniel

Danny has extensive and varied experience in real estate and finance. He began his professional life as a Certified Public Accountant specializing in income tax at a leading international firm. In this position Danny worked closely with clients who were real estate investors and developers. This is where Danny first became interested in real estate. While providing excellent accounting and tax service to his clients, Danny learned enough to begin investing on his own. As soon as he had saved enough money for a down payment, he bought his first condominium in Chicago.

Since then he has been involved in a variety of residential projects including multi-family rentals, single family development and condominium conversion. In addition to his real estate and accounting activity, Danny had a successful career as a trader in the futures and options markets in Chicago.

Danny feels that clients are best served when they are well informed. His ability to educate clients on the advantages and potential risks of a real estate investment allows them to be comfortable with the decisions that they make. His upbeat personality and quick sense of humor help him put people at ease even in pressure situations.

Danny is a life-long resident of the Chicago area, growing up in the north suburbs. As an adult he has lived for twenty years in various neighborhoods in the city of Chicago including Rogers Park, Lakeview, Gold Coast and Lincoln Park.
