Before starting in Real Estate 5 years ago, Dan worked in project management for more than 12 years. This experience gives him vast knowledge and skills in team building, giving the customer what they want and need, and the ability to always look for that win-win no matter the situation.
After winning the Keller Williams Rookie of the Year Award in 2012, Dan has gone on to win multiple other awards and honors due to his client first approach to Real Estate. In his first two years, he was working with both buyers and sellers with a heavy focus on face-to-face marketing. With more than 100 transactions closed in his young career, Dan has realized that his true passion is working with buyers. Whether or not they’re a first-time buyer or a savvy buyer working on purchasing their fifth home, Dan finds great satisfaction in taking what buyers want and need and finding them a perfect fit. Using his robust knowledge of the Southern California Real Estate market and the technology available to him, he has found great success in converting home buyers into home owners no matter their budget, situation or time frame.
Outside of Real Estate, Dan enjoys watching baseball, long walks on the beach, sipping cognac while listening to Barry Manilow on vinyl and spending time with his lovely wife and beautiful twin daughters.
