"He was always available and helped us land the house we wanted at less than asking price in a tight market. We also got a lot of credits back in escrow and closing and the finance company he recommended was about to handle the loan after our original lender backed out." - Alex

"As a first time home buyer, I was looking for an agent who is trustworthy and patient enough to educate a novice so I can make informed decisions. In retrospect, I learned that buying a home really comes down to making a series of nerve-wrecking split-second decisions that can either cost you a fortune or save you money. Buying a home with Dan was like having a big brother with decades of real estate experience at my fingertip genuinely interested in the younger brother's best interest. All the way through, Dan represented me well, working patiently with a seller who was oftentimes unreasonable. Negotiating with a seller is only a portion of a real estate transaction. Dan also excelled in working with the loan officer and the escrow company, ensuring that I had best rates and minimal costs. Even after the home purchase, Dan visited my home several times to ensure that my renovation project goes smoothly, even brining his own tools and handymen to assist. In the end, Dan became more than a friend, and I couldn't have asked for a better agent." - David

"Daniel is really the best. When we needed help getting our first home Daniel was there, he made sure we got the financing we needed, and then advised us on the escrow process and what we would need. We never would have been able to get our home without his help. Two years after when we have questions he still answers our questions and take the time to help.. I call that customer service!!"

"When I found a new job and had to leave town I didn't have much time. I had some trouble finding an agent that would call me back I explained my situation to him and he immediately addressed my issue, and my house was listed the next day and sold later that month. Speedy and professional, I got the price I wanted and was on my way. Daniel is a detail orientated guy who covered all the bases. I refer all my friends and co-workers his way, you will be pleased with his service.."

"Dan is one of the best realtor out there. He is very attentive and goes out of his ways to help you get the home that you will fall in love with. During the time I was looking for our home, Dan would drive all around San Diego to meet us to show us the home at any hour and any day. He is very knowledgeable, resourceful and honest. It is very hard to find an honest realtor and it was very pleasant working with Dan. Dan is very personable and had become our friend even after he helped us purchased our first home. We will always continue to ask Dan for his expertise and help."
