Charles and Janice: Semi detached Danforth We Found Daniel on Yelp…
Cristy M: Condo Don Mills/Eglinton
Daniel helped us find a condo within a limited time in the busy Toronto market. He was very outgoing and suggested different options for us. The place we ended up buying needed some renos and thanks to his networking and people skills we were able to get great references for the jobs that needed to get done. He really cares for his clients and this is obvious even after the sale has been made
. I would recommend him hands down!! Thanks Daniel

Daniel assisted me with the purchase of my home earlier this year. He listened with patience to all of my needs and wants, which seemed to evolve throughout the journey. He has a vast knowledge of the market and a strong familiarity with the various neighbourhoods in the GTA. He does his research and was always organized and prepared for each meeting. In the end he found me a home in my ‘dream’ neighbourhood, which I initially did not think I could afford. The process of purchasing, staging and selling can be very stressful and at times, overwhelming. Daniel provided support and advice every step of the way, with my best interest always in mind. As busy as I’m sure he was, he always made me feel like I was a priority by answering all of my queries in a timely manner. If you want a more personalized experience with purchasing or selling your home, I would highly recommend Daniel.

Angel and Thibaut: TownHouse Scarborough
We are a young couple who just bought a our first home with Daniel’s help, and we are very satisfied with his service. Initial home visits: Daniel always made himself available in taking us to house/apartment visits once a property became listed on the market. He didn’t hesitate to spend a lot of time in helping us learn about the market and was very attentive to our needs in the search for the right property. He was always available to listen to us when we had concerns or request over homes that interested us. He was very patient throughout our 3-4 months of home search and was a pleasure to work with. He was able to give us a good idea of the real value of a house/apartment, of its general condition and of the price of the work that needed to be done. He also referred contractors and home inspectors to us at good rates. He has 10+ years of experience in home renovations which is a real comfort for buyers like us who know just a bit more than changing light bulbs. Bidding process: During the bidding process for the house we bought, he demonstrated excellent experience in handling multiple offer situations. The house we were bidding for initially had 4 offers and in the end had 7 offers. He had suggested different ranges of prices to put on the offers based on different levels of competition. We took his advice on the initial offer and stayed in the negotiation with the sellers. When the sellers` agent offered us an opportunity to improve our offer, we were able to improve but were very hesitant to do so because the price we offered was already at the limit of our comfort level. Daniel was able to tell based on the way the sellers` agent spoke with him that we were in fact the best offer and with another buyer who had improved their offer, there was a large chance that we were still the best offer. Based on that information, we decided to stay with the initial offer and won the house! We later found out that we had won the house for just $1000 over the second best offer.

We had Daniel as our agent to purchase our home this August. Like all the first-time home buyers, we didn’t know where to start, what to look, and how to prepare. Daniel walked us through each step methodically so this experience was exciting and comfortable. He is very kind and patient to answer all our questions. He is also very organized, and pays attention on details. I remember one day he showed us about six homes in a roll, he analyzed their pros and cons in order for us to choose. He offered the help that not all agents are capable to. He is very professional. He drove all the way to our old home at night in order to have our feedback get to the other part in time when the deal was in negotiation. Not only that, he is also expert in home renovation. We got not only wise advises, but also hands-on help from him too. We much appreciate it, and recommend him as your agent so you will have the pleasant journey like us.
Nadine and Jorge:
Detached House The Danforth My husband and I worked with Daniel to buy our first home in Toronto this winter. Daniel was very patient as he answered all of our questions and walked us through the entire process – since we were first time home buyers we really appreciated all of his guidance. He was always very responsive to email and phone calls and was more than willing to work around our busy work schedules whenever we needed to meet. I think his best asset though is his knowledge of all the things to look for and consider when buying a house – you can tell that he really knows what he’s talking about. He’s not pushy at all but when you find a house you love, he’ll make sure that you’re making a truly informed decision prior to putting in an offer. In the end, we found a perfect house in a great neighbourhood that met all of our requirements and was within our budget. We’ll gladly work with Daniel again and will certainly recommend him when anybody we know is in the market for a real estate agent.
Tina and Alessandro:
Detached House Bradford My boyfriend and I had Daniel as our Real Estate agent and he was the best person to have. He took us from home to home with pleasure before we decided on our new home in Bradford that we absolutley love. During our home searching, he was patient and always willing to listen to my concerns, helping us see and notice things about each home we entered. His knowledge and professionalism was outstanding and like no other. If we should have to move or look into investing in another home, hands down, he’s the guy who will help us with that. This wasn’t our first home purchase but the first time we used Daniel and he will be the only agent we use moving forward.
Nina and Douglas:
Detached house Scarborough Daniel was 100% knowledgeable about the market and our desired neighbourhood. He always took the time to explain “the big picture” to us, as well as every detail and step along the way. During our home search, we were emailing/texting/calling Daniel every day, often multiple times per day, and he was always responsive. He always took the time to explain the negotiation process and all contributing factors, and give us the proper context in which to make a decision. We love our home! The location is exactly what we wanted — in fact, better than we had expected. The house has lots of potential and we look forward to spending the next few months freshening it up and making it our dream home. Personally I really valued his past contractor experience. He spent almost an hour inspecting our home during the viewing and I really trusted him when he said the house was solid with no major warning signs. (It is an older house.) Then the home inspection basically confirmed what Daniel had told us. We appreciate that Daniel went the extra mile for us and we would definitely recommend him to our family and friends.
Julie and Dave: Townhouse in Etobicoke
Daniel helped both my husband and I buy our first house. With every house we looked at, Daniel was very knowledgeable about the history of the house, as well as any work that would have needed to be done. Being that he previously worked in the renovation industry, he is very good at noticing the future work that the house will need, as well as the costs associated with it. Daniel is a very honest real estate worker. He never tried to push any sales on us and always looked out for our best interest. Daniel is extremely helpful and a great guy to have when looking for a house.
Shawn and Kathleen: Detached House in Port Credit
IN RESPONSE TO A REFERENCE CHECK: Hi Charles. Thanks for your note and I am happy to share my insight with you on Daniel. I am not sure if Daniel mentioned but my wife and I had our first interaction with him in his past life when he was a contractor. He came highly recommended to us from a colleague of mine. We had a great experience with him, and then hired him again to do another major project on our house, and we also referred him to other friends, who were also impressed with his work. When Daneil emailed me to tell us he moved into real estate we knew he would be our only choice for an agent for two reasons: 1) he intimately knew our house as he was involved in every major upgrade and feature so he could speak with confidence about the place during the sale process, and 2) being a contractor he could see things that other people might not see when looking at homes to purchase so that we didn’t walk into a situation that would cost us in unexpected repairs. He was our secret weapon on both sides of the transaction. As an agent he is just as talented as he is a contractor. Always available, had great contacts for staging our house, he marketed our open house really well and he helped negotiate a superior deal on our new house. In the end, Daniel recommended some upgrades to our house before the sale ( all of which we did). He recommended we hold for offers after the open house which we did and we ended up getting the second highest amount ever recovered for a sale of a house on our street. And we had a semi on a street full of detached homes. Pretty fantastic. On the purchase of the new house we were very strategic in our approach and in the end we got this house far under asking, which might seem hard to believe, but it is a higher end home so we were able to negotiate downwards. I would recommend Daniel highly. He is honest, smart, and his experience in homes goes far beyond real estate which is why he is great at what he does. Good luck with your transaction and I hope it goes well!
All the best Shawn and Kathleen
