This was the first home purchase for both of us. We actually thought of trying to go it alone, but I’m so glad we didn’t! Daniel was always responsive, available for questions throughout the day and flexible with his time. He took the time to describe all the paperwork and to walk us through anything we were concerned about. He explained inspections, what our expectations should be, and looked out for our needs every step of the way. I particularly appreciated his suggestion to take the time to write a thoughtful letter of introduction to include with our offer. It allowed us to connect with the out-of-town sellers in a way that I don’t think would have been possible otherwise. I also particularly appreciated his willingness to communicate electronically, which is a standard in my daily business practice and probably the only way I could have fit house-hunting/offering/financing into my busy life. Our overall experience with Daniel was terrific! I especially appreciated his sincere attention to retaining a relationship after the sale. I feel like I have a realtor I can count on for life.

Working in British television can often be a demanding and stressful occupation. Expectations of UK viewers, producers and commissioning editors are incredibly high and as a tv crew you have to be confident and able to make the right decisions quickly. The key to the success of any show is having the right people on board to make it happen. Daniel was one such person that we fully relied upon to help us produce our tv show during our recent filming and short stay in Santa Barbara. Daniel immediately understood the criteria for our property search and worked hard to offer us lots of choice, showing us some wonderful properties and suggesting locations to film in. Daniel was on hand and willing to help us with many of our demands – often at short notice. Thankfully Daniel delivered on every single request and was always prepared to go the extra mile. Drawing on his business expertise he provided us much needed information and additional facts that have made it into the final script. Daniel was reliable, punctual, polite, a great communicator and easy to get a long with but above all he made working in Santa Barbara an enjoyable and memorable experience. In fact Daniel’s contribution was so impressive that he even made it into the filming! He makes a special personal appearance in the show with ‘A Place In The Sun’ presenter Jasmine Harman! To sum up, Daniel delivered.
