Dan is a treasure as a person, and an absolute professional in the industry.
Dan assisted me in the sale of my uncle’s home in 2019. I was the executor of their estate. I have been in real estate nearly 20 years, and I have a broker’s license in both California and Texas. But, I knew I needed local expertise, and I’m so thankful that I connected with Dan Dodd. As someone that has been in the industry a long time, I had a clear expectation of what I wanted in an agent. I wanted that local expertise, I wanted clear counsel on market value, conditions, and buyer expectations within Diamond Heights. I also live 1500 miles away in Houston, Texas. Ease of communication was paramount. Dan, along with his team, were so incredibly responsive throughout a long process. I knew that my uncle’s property needed massive renovation before we listed it. Dan, and his wonderful team, did an extraordinary job of helping us manage that renovation from a distance. They provided wonderful support and direction along the way. We were able to take advantage of the Compass Concierge service which allowed me to protect our cash reserves. Dan gave me wonderful counsel related to listing it as a TIC or as a single property. He helped me navigate some of the nuances of selling in San Francisco, and helped prepare the home to make sure we maximized the return. We leaned on him for advice related to improvements and staging, which resulted in multiple offers over asking. We were also grieving, as well as managing the care of my uncle’s partner during these difficult months. This had been my uncle, and his partner’s, home for over 30 years. Dan was incredibly sensitive during a painful and difficult time for our family. That sensitivity and respect meant more than I can express. Dan is a treasure as a person, and an absolute professional in the industry. Needless to say, he comes with my highest recommendation.
