Daniel's paramount responsibility is to achieve the very best price possible. He brings an easily understood and effective strategy to every property transaction, with a view to generating interest in the property for sale, facilitating competition between buyers and ultimately negotiating the very highest price possible. His recommendations are made with the express purpose of promoting the property to all potential buyers, creating an environment of urgency and competition around the sale.
Daniel conducted the whole business of selling my house in an extremely proficient manner. Right through all the different stages of the process, I was provided with expert and knowledgeable advice in a way that I could clearly understand. His manner was polite and encouraging and he provided all the information I asked for and was never too busy to answer to answer any queries I had in a very short time. The information I received was always honest and appropriate. He demonstrated his bargaining skills in a way that produced a very satisfactory outcome for me and meant that I was able to acquire the property I wanted within a tight timeframe. Through his expertise and experience, Daniel made the sale of my property far less daunting than I had imagined and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to any other prospective seller
We were always intending to engage Daniel to sell our house, but we went through the process of talking to several agents. Upon Daniel walking into our house for the first time, we confirmed that he was the agent for us. There was genuine excitement in viewing our house for the first time. Daniel paid particular attention to details that other agents had barely noticed. Pricing options were discussed openly, and a strategy applied to achieve the best possible price. Professional photos, coupled with a concise property description provided the marketing tool to effectively sell our house. Within 12 days of listing, and after negotiating with several interested parties, our house was sold! We achieved a great price, in a remarkably short timeframe. Communication throughout the process was open, clear, timely and honest. This is the second house that Daniel has sold for us... and it won't be the last!
This is the second property Daniel has sold for us. We were very happy with the result of the first sale and particularly Daniel's communication and professionalism. On our most recent sale Daniel priced the property in market range and in accordance with our wishes to move the property fairly quickly but at the same time price it to market value. The open homes were well attended as a result of good advertising and marketing by Daniel. He was always available on the phone and happy to answer any questions. His manner is forthright and open, so you are not led to believe or assume anything - I think this is one of his finest characteristics. Selling and buying property can be stressful events, so you need to have honesty and good communication with your agent. You will get that with Daniel. Daniel has the qualities and abilities one should look for in a real estate agent.
