What Dan's Clients Say:
“Dan was an extremely knowledgeable real estate professional. He made the process very easy and provided his expertise when appropriate. My wife and I never felt pressured or forced to make a decision, and, to be perfectly honest, searching for real estate with Dan was more like looking at houses with a good friend."

"Dan has been an absolute joy to work with from beginning to sale. He was able to keep us level-headed during the process. He worked so diligently to make the sale of a larger estate into the teeth of a soft housing market materialize. On moving day, he came to see how things were going. Next thing I know, he rolled up his sleeves and was physically helping with the move. Dan truly is a genuine guy that just happened to pick real estate sales as his profession. Thank you, Dan! You truly have been a friend."

I was born and raised in Lombard. I am a graduate of Elmhurst College, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing. After spending 15 years working in management positions within the advertising, marketing and public relations industry, I decided to enter the world of real estate in 2002. I found that the very same skill sets learned in the agency world enabled me to become a top tier Realtor in the Western Suburbs.
I reside in Elmhurst with my wife, Karen, and two children, Sara and Max. In my free time, I like to exercise and help coach our kids in sports. Our family also likes to spend time at our summer cottage in southwest Michigan.
