I’ve worked with Dan on some deals and he is a different kind of broker. He gets deals done and he gets them done now. In an industry where people push items to the next day, Dan’s sense of urgency is next level. He is a next level personality and more importantly a next level deal maker. I recommend all my investors to him knowing they will get the best deal at the quickest rate.

Dan has an amazing career and understands the Commercial Real estate market better than many attorneys. He explained it to me with Graphic and Excellent Examples that make learning fun. Like a tag team study group I would recommend any client to Dan. And I think he has the "Eye of the Tiger" survival instinct like a Rocky who could go all the rounds even when exhausted. Let Dan be the Man you call for Investment Property.

Some examples include the LinkedIn and social media module, proposal creation and Costar modules. I look forward to learning more from Dan in the future!
