"Dan had helped my husband sell his condo previously and was spot-on throughout the process, so it wasn't a question that we would purchase through him as well. As a first time buyer, I had a lot of questions and wanted to see many options before making the investment. Dan helped ease my nerves by honing in on the right neighborhoods and types of homes that would meet our family's needs. He was exceptional throughout the offer/negotiations process and we couldn't be happier with the result!" -Kelly W.
"Hiring Dan Sullivan is a no brainer if you are buying/selling in Chicago. First, Dan's understanding of the market and in-depth assessment led to selling our unit for more than we ever thought we would receive. Second, he handled everything (coordinating photography and marketing and even helping find a countertop contractor to buffer our countertops) that made life for us so much easier. I also appreciated that he understood how some routine building maintenance would need to be disclosed to potential buyers in order to not impact the sale process. High on the list as well is how Dan handled everything personally - no assistants - by conducting every showing, attending the property inspection, appraisal, and final walkthrough. Probably most impressive, though, is how he strategically timed the marketing and pricing of the property based off of competing properties in the neighborhood along with utilizing his deep network of relationships with other brokers to learn when other properties were closing to assure there were no issues with appraisals. Our experience was similar to that of friends who have also used them for their buying and selling." -Lance T.
"Dan was exceptionally accommodating with our needs and demands, particularly given the nature of the situation regarding our price point. We had to move fast a number of times on properties and Dan was always there to help us out in a timely fashion. We had our net cast pretty wide around the city and Dan drove all over the place to help us evaluate potential properties. He was great a keeping an eye out for potential issues with properties and had a strong set of recommendations for contacting the right folks to get ideas regarding repairs or fixes. Dan was fantastic at helping us work through a extensive list of repairs after the inspection phase and did his best to have all of our concerns met with a challenging seller, and eventually closed on a place we love! Fast, super-friendly, reliable and awesome to work with." -Kasey M.
"We had a very positive experience with Dan representing us both as a buyer and as a seller. As buyers, after coming across a home done by a builder we liked, Dan was able to locate another off-market property by the same builder in a preferable location and in the early stages of construction. Dan then proved to be an invaluable resource over the course of the construction process as he assisted us in customizing certain elements of the home and managed interaction with the builder in general. This was a somewhat extensive process with many touchpoints, and Dan was readily available to assist us any time we had a question or needed any sort of guidance. Dan also shone representing us as a seller. He provided thorough guidance on how to ready our property for market, including use of a staging company who really transformed our home visually. He was also personally present at, and really invested in, every showing and open house. He presented himself in a professional manner that made us very comfortable in him representing our property to potential buyers. He also inspired confidence in his ability to navigate the complexities of the sale process including a multiple offer situation. Overall we really felt than Dan provided a quality, full-service experience representing us on both our purchase and sale." -Mike S.
"Dan helped me with the sale of my condo in Lakeview in May, 2019. As I was living out of state, I found him by reading reviews and was not disappointed. Dan helped coordinate everything regarding the sale. We began by negotiating a potential sale with the then-current tenant of the unit, however as we were unable to come to an agreement, we shifted gears and Dan advised me on what was needed in terms of cosmetic improvements to have the unit ready for sale. Dan coordinated the staging and advised on the marketing strategy of the condo. He also strategically timed the the marketing of the property which resulted in a multiple offer situation and a sale price well over list price. Finally, as I was using a relocation company, Dan established strong communication with the relo company as well as all parties involved in the transaction to assure that that unit would close successfully. Overall it was a great experience working with Dan and I would highly recommend him." -Nick L.
