When you are looking for a partner to help you navigate the complexities of selling a home, you've come to the right place. Experience, education, effectiveness matters to ensure the maximum return on one of the largest transactions you may ever execute, relating to one of your most important/greatest assets ... your home! I will educate and guide you in selling your home quickly, and for the best price and terms possible.
As a former finance executive with some of the largest multi-national firms in the world, I will put my big business background to work for you to achieve your real estate goals. Unique value-added services I bring to the table are:
- Appraisal Skills - My training in this area allows me to intelligently and effectively coach the Appraiser who will appraise your property on behalf of the buyer/bank providing the financing. Most deals/contracts are contingent on appraisal, and should your property not appraise, you have no deal and may be back at square one. I will prevent this from occurring.
- Due Diligence - Using my finance background as a (non-practicing) CPA, I will assess the financial wherewithal/strength of the prospective buyer for your home to ascertain if they are qualified prior to accepting an offer and executing a contract for sale. Most deals/contracts are contingent on financing, and should the buyer for your property not get their financing, you have no deal as they can legally walk away, with their deposit, and you will be back at square one. I will prevent this from occurring.
- Expert Negotiator - No two deals are ever the same, and one's negotiating style must be adapted to whom one is negotiating with, and each specific transaction. I am formally trained in this area and have negotiated joint ventures in numerous countries, multi-million dollar software contracts, etc. and over 75 real estate transactions in the past few years alone. I will ensure you receive the best price and terms possible for your real estate!

Ed - Dan was efficient, intelligent and quick. He came up with a good selling price. He said it would attract quick interest and the price would bid up. That is exactly what happened and we had offers within days and closed in a month.
Barbara - We needed to sell my father's duplex in Sleepy Hollow, so we wanted an agent experienced with multi-family dwellings. From our first meeting, we could tell that Dan not only knew the Westchester real estate market, he knew the specifics of selling a two-family home. Though we were daunted by the task of emptying a home that had been in the family for three generations, he made suggestions that made it as efficient as possible. (The dumpster, in fact, was filled three times and proved to be essential.) He was also considerate of the fact that we had family members living in the house when the property was listed and was mindful of their needs, keeping them informed throughout the process. Long story short, the home was sold within a week of the date of listing, and we could not have been happier with Dan's oversight throughout. Even before the closing, during a cold snap, Dan went to the house to check the heat and make sure water was running. He was very thorough and attentive, and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Josh - Dan is, quite simply, the most authentic broker I have ever met in Westchester. He's been in the area his entire life and has a tremendous knowledge of Westchester County. We have both purchased and sold through him and each time he was on the mark with his information. Too many brokers, especially in Westchester, are full of fluff and phoniness, and really don't know the business. Whether you're new to the area or are moving locally, Dan will give you straight, honest information. Don't drive yourself crazy looking for a broker. Just go to Dan and make things simple for yourself.
Jennifer - Dan recently sold my home in Tarrytown. He has excellent inter-personal as well as negotiation skills. He is a calming influence during what can be a very stressful time. His connections to the market conditions as well as network locally set him apart from other agents. I highly recommend Dan as a listing agent. He knows how to get things done and done quickly!
Leonard - Truly great working with you and meeting you Dan I consider you a friend. You made all aspects of the sale of Moms house easier you did everything you said you would and then some! Dealing with you was pleasant you are very professional, true to your word and you get the job done! Thanks from me and my 3 brothers for a job well done!
Tom & Andrea – We’ve bought and sold six houses. Never have we met anyone as knowledgeable and competent as Dan. He knows real estate like the back of his hand. His combined knowledge in the areas of construction, finance, and taxation make him unparalleled as a broker.
Kevin - Dan is extremely professional, knowledgeable and experienced. He is equally at ease selling modest homes as he is multimillion dollar estates. Dan's prior background in finance and accounting gives him the analytical tools to creatively list, market and close home sales. In addition, he has earned the respect of his peers at other brokerages and this provides him with contacts and market penetration. Dan demonstrated his ability to interact well with everyone we came in contact with throughout the whole process. This included real estate professionals, prospective buyers and family members (including children) and puts them all at ease. We believe that this is a distinctive skill that sets Dan apart from other real estate professionals we have met and contributes to his ongoing success. We found him to be readily available to answer questions no matter the day or the hour. We highly recommend him and would use his services again.
Mary - Dan helped me sell my home. Dan's knowledge of the local market, coupled with his excellent inter-personal skills, were the key reasons I enjoyed working with him. He understood the challenges of getting my mother's house ready for sale, and was patient and sympathetic during the process. He is a superb negotiator, and is well-respected by his colleagues. I highly recommend him.
