Business owner & PB at Keybank
We wished there were 10 stars! Dan-O and his team are as Professional as it gets. We tried selling our home two years ago with a different agent and didn't get any bites in two months, she only used Zillow site and no other advertising, so we took it off the market. This time around a good business friend of ours recommended Dan-O and what a difference it was this time. Our home was Pending the second day on the market and sold for $81.5K more than what we were asking for it two years ago. We had and accepted an offer of $16,5K more than what we were asking for the house! There were several stages getting ready to put it on the market such as taking very good photos and then putting it on the market with several websites. Dan-O explained every step in a very professional manner before, during and after.
Dan-O helped us sell my deceased brother's house. He was a wonderful agent. He provided advice, input, and leads about whom to hire to do worthwhile renovations to enhance the sale. And he continued to market the house enthusiastically despite a somewhat difficult location and a market that slowed a bit. He effectively used technology and a wealth of expertise to properly show the home. And he was available to answer questions and provide advice from day one to the close of sale. I recommend him whole heartedly.
I hired Dan to assist with the sale of my 3 bedroom condo in University Place. I contacted him because his service in the past was excellent and I remembered this. Since I had a buyer before I contacted him, he helped facilitate the process that the buyer and I needed to complete the sale. He was very responsive when I called with questions.

Dan-O did a fabulous job selling our home for us. Our home had 5 offers for us to look after just one day on the market and our home was sold and finalized with in 45 days from us agreeing to one of those offers. We got a great price and our home sold quickly due to the knowledge and experience that Dan-O has. We are very pleased and would recommend him to anyone who is in need of selling their home

Geoff and Julie Johnson
We have used Dan to sell 3 homes over the years and he has always done the best work for us. I have recommended Dan to several friends and will use him again for my next transaction. Dan and his team are top notch!
Dan-O is a terrific real estate agent. Very savvy and experienced. He was able to keep me under control during our preparations for selling our home by fully explaining the problems I could get into with my impulsive ideas. As a result, my wife and I fully trust his recommendations and followed them, and had two contracts to consider by the second day of our listing. One was exactly what we needed for our unique situation, which he was able to craft by his negotiations with the sellers' agent. A true professional.
Territory Sales Manager
Dan was great to work with. He listened to what we wanted to do regarding selling the house and gave us good recommendations to help us accomplish our goal. His on line tour of the home was excellent and we sold the house on the second offer at full price. I would recommend him to anyone!
Very professional and supportive of this emotional process of selling. Got the job done in very short order.
I was very happy with my first transaction with Dan. After that, I have recommended Dan to friends and other family members who also felt they were treated with respect, ultimate trust, honesty and were thrilled with the results. My sister's home was sold within 4 days - cash! I highly recommend Dan and will only use him. He definitely looks out for your interests.
This was my second home purchase Dan was exceptional throughout the whole process. Dan was very knowledgeable, was very responsive through phone, emails. I would highly recommend him to any friend or family.
Dan is very knowledgeable about the local Puyallup/Tacoma markets and worked with me on setting a fair price for a quick sale as well as something I was satisfied with. His communication was always prompt and as a first time seller, I never had to wonder the status of my transaction or what was going to happen next. Their entire staff was professional and always kept me in the loop. I was very impressed at the level of marketing for my listing. Multiple signs, billboard and flyers were always stocked. I would definitely recommend working with this team and would surely use them again.
I've used Dan-O for two houses now. I trust him implicitly. He is very honest and very trustworthy. I have absolutely NO reservations about recommending Dan-O. Dan has always represented my best interests as my realtor. He has always been proactive and is always on top of any situation that arises. He provides valuable insights given his vast experience and time-in-service. I was referred to Dan-O by friends that have used him for their real estate transactions. All have been VERY satisfied with Dan-O, which is why he keeps getting repeat customers.
We are loving the new house! The layout of the house is working out even better than expected with the kids. And of course the sunsets are amazing! Thank you for helping us find this gem.
Very professional in all of their correspondence with me. They have a great support staff in the office to keep on top of all of the technical details. They also provided help with staging my new house so that it showed it's best.
The beginning of selling our duplex went very smoothly. we had three potential buyers the first day. The first buyer backed out of the sale. With in hours Dan and his team had another buyer under contract. We ended up having "hick ups" along the way, none on our end. The buyers inspection and appraiser delayed the sale, we ended up extending the closing date five times. This was very stressful but Dan and Danielle kept me informed through the hole process. I felt they did every thing they needed to complete the sale.
Very happy with my new home. It has all the items I required - large lot, fireplace, off street parking - and some items I didn't know I wanted - mature fruit trees, large shade trees, major off street parking with room to build a garage and shop.
I met with Dan about 8 months before I put my home on the market. Since this was my first home I had no clue what it would take to get it ready. He came in and explain everything very clearly and said they would get back with me in the spring time. When I was ready they moved on it quickly and after a week on the market it had multiple offers. They kept in touch with me and helped get the things done that I needed to do. I recommend them highly if you want to get your home sold!
Sellers & Buyers
Selling our old home and buying our new one in Puyallup was one of the most trying experiences my wife and I have gone through -- and Dan-O came through for us. We really can't praise him enough. If you want a buyer's agent in your corner who's on top of their game, you can't do any better than working with Dan-O. Puyallup's a hot market with multiple offers commonplace, and when we lost out on great homes we liked, she was right there when we started to look for the next one. Right up through the final walk-through of the brand new house we finally opted for, Kathy had her finger on the pulse of the transaction and worked hard behind the scenes with the builder to make things happen. And when Dan-O says he can sell your house within a certain time frame, he means it. When an offer is made within five hours of the house showing up on the Northwest MLS, and six more offers appear within five days, you know you're in good hands. And when I was too much of my worry-wart self, Dan and Kathy helped me step back, relax, and see the bigger picture. This is the second home we've with Dan-O and the second we've purchase with him. If there's a third in our future, we already know who we're calling.
