Daniel was very patient, knowledgeable, and a huge help when it came to making all the decisions that are involved with buying a home. He went above and beyond our expectations by continuing to be a valuable resource for us even after the contracts were signed.

Zach Schock

Daniel was extremely professional and moved us through our home purchase easing the headaches that come along with the escrow process these days. My wife and I, even though we were both first time home buyers, felt completely comfortable with Daniel and trusted that he was looking out for our best interest. He was dedicated to ensuring we were making a wise investment and educated us on all aspects of the home buying experience At the end of our transaction he even offered us a hand in moving our belongings.
