What My Clients Say

★★★★★

“As a first home buyer in 2020 with both Covid-19 and an even hotter East Bay market, Dan has been nothing but patient with us as we navigated through all the ups and downs. He worked with us to understand and honed in on what we wanted in a home and the surrounding community, answered all of our questions multiple times, and shared valuable insights on any work that a certain listing might need to suit our move-in needs if we were considering putting in an offer. Like Dan initially told us when we met, house buying requires lots of patience and he was totally right. While we were disheartening after a few outbid offers, Dan, the gem that he is, surprised us with an off-market listing that meets all our needs and our offer was accepted. I wholeheartedly recommend Dan to anyone looking in the East Bay as he's well-respected and connected but also ensures his clients get their needs met.”

– Oakland Buyer


★★★★★

“What I want in a realtor is someone who: 1) knows the market well, 2) knows how to position my property for the best return, and 3) knows how to manage expectations and relationships for a frictionless transaction. Dan Walner has all these qualities, and he's kind and calm to boot. It's hard work to make things looks easy - Dan has the depth of experience and finesse with people that I wish I could find in all my business dealings. I will be returning to him when I'm ready to buy my next place, and recommending him to anyone looking for an excellent realtor.”

– Oakland Seller


★★★★★

“We wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend Dan as your realtor to sell your home. Dan is the perfect combination of vast experience and knowledge and client customization. He came well recommended and not only met but also exceeded our expectations. From the very beginning, Dan’s professionalism stood out as he listened carefully to our requirements and advised us about the Berkeley market and the renovations that would be desirable to achieve our minimum and optimal price points. He served ably as general contractor to help us meet the timeline he outlined. We successfully sold our Berkeley home in a swift and efficient manner, with Dan as the perfect agent.”

– Berkeley/Oakland Seller

★★★★★

“We had a fantastic experience with Dan. As first time home buyers, we put a lot of trust in Dan and we couldn’t have asked for a better person to guide us through the buying process. He is an expert on the Lamorinda market and always had good insight on the particular neighborhood we may be seeing or areas of the house we should focus on that we may overlook as first time buyers. Dan was patient with us throughout the process and learned and adapted to our narrowing taste while remaining enthusiastic and a true partner. We still keep in touch with Dan after we’ve found our dream home and we’re thankful we worked with him to get here.”

– Lafayette Buyer


★★★★★

“Dan was the epitome of what we needed in our SF to East Bay home search. He knows the East Bay neighborhoods in and out, was attentive to detail and our desires, and took an empathetic approach to our home evaluation. After a few weeks of not finding what we were looking for in Orinda and Lafayette, Dan found a non-listed gem in Alamo that fulfilled our dreams beyond what we could have imagined. He was also very knowledgeable throughout the home inspection and contracting process. We would happily recommend Dan to all our friends who are evaluating settling down in the East Bay.”

– Alamo Buyer


★★★★★

“Dan was a godsend to us. When we finally decided to sell our house after living there for many years, we were somewhat overwhelmed with what to do to get it on the market. We knew that timing played an important factor on selling the house in a timely manner, but we already had vacation plans that took us away for a lengthy period. Dan came to our rescue. He not only helped us strategized on how to price and market the house, he made all the necessary arrangements in getting the house cleaned, staged and ready for sale. He did a lot of work on our behalf, coordinating with the different vendors and crews. We could not have gotten the house on the market in such a short time without Dan’s guidance and service. He was always available to answer our questions, especially during the offer acceptance process. We really enjoyed working with Dan and would highly recommend him to our friends and other sellers.”

– Peidmont Seller


★★★★★

“We thoroughly enjoyed our experience working with Dan. As first time buyers in Lafayette we didn't know much about the area. Dan took the time to educate us and never grew tired of the endless slew of questions that we constantly asked of him, or if he did, we never knew it! Dan is very knowledgeable not only about home valuations but has a keen sense for the market dynamics that are at play when going through the home buying process. He was always honest with us about the pros and cons of every property we saw, protected our interests not just in the escrow period but after we closed he continued to be an amazing resource while we were planning our move to the area. We would highly recommend working with Dan for both buying and selling a home in the area."

– Lafayette Buyer


★★★★★

"We worked with Dan for about 6 months before closing on a house in Moraga. While the process of buying a house, especially in the current rising market, is always a challenge, working with Dan has been a great experience. Dan is very knowledgeable with the Lamorinda neighborhood, and was always available to answer our questions (and we had a lot of questions). He gave valuable advice on several occasions so we didn't get too crazy trying to win bidding wars; in the end, Dan did great a great job in helping us getting the house we wanted while staying within our budget. He was also tremendously helpful after close of escrow, he made himself available to meet contractors at the house for a few small projects so we didn't have to take time off from work - thank you, Dan! We highly recommend Dan to future buyers in this area.”

– Moraga Buyer

About Dan

After graduating from the University of California, Berkeley, Dan worked 15 years in corporate sales as a top-performing sales executive of technology products and services to Fortune 500 companies. Dan entered real estate after a great experience selling and buying a home and realizing that his consultative sales approach could help others successfully meet their own real estate needs.



First, in the Oakland hills and now in Lafayette, Dan has made the East Bay his home since 1989.  He admires the classic architecture found in Berkeley and Oakland homes and enjoys the sunny, outdoor living that LaMorinda offers.  Dan actively tours in LaMorinda and Piedmont/Oakland Hills/Berkeley to stay on top of available houses and market trends on both sides of the tunnel.



Outside of work, Dan enjoys playing tennis, coaching his children’s soccer teams, traveling to interesting places near and far with his family, grilling the perfect tri-tip, and teaching his Goldendoodle puppy that socks are not food.
