Client Experience

Daniel has represented me in both buying and selling property. His professiona-lism and knowledge of the market is impressive. It was obvious that Daniel paid close attention to the details, and listened closely to what was said every step of the way. Despite potential delays regarding financing, repairs , and other variab-les, Daniel helped keep my transaction on schedule. Even in an ever-changing real estate market, Daniel kept a razor sharp focus on what was needed to get me the results I wanted. I was impressed by the success Daniel had when nego-tiating on my behalf. He discussed with me his strategy early and stuck with the game plan, and it worked! My previous property sales were mostly adversarial. Daniel created a successful win-win scenario that I was more than comfortable with. Daniel explained the process clearly, his use of research, statistics and facts made decision making easy and help guide the way forward. Al D.
Daniel is very friendly and personable. He helped us with our home search by understanding what in a home was important to our family. He was very responsive and helpful to keep the transaction on track. Daniel did a good job of helping us negotiate for costs to cover actionable repair items. Daniel was sensitive to our interests, and responsive to our requests for additional information on the home and neighborhood. He helped us network with others who he knew lived in our neighborhood of interest. Since we were moving from out of town, he was able to help use his local knowledge to direct us to areas that were of interest to us, with good schools and access to highways. I really enjoyed Daniel's enthusiasm and positive outlook. Andy B.
Daniel always gave us excellent service, recognizing our needs and also delicately and respectfully giving me the tough love that I needed when I went into sticker shock as we began shopping for our replacement home. Should my wife and I decide to relocate ... Daniel Bell will be our first and only choice for our realtor. William F., Dannell P.
