My husband and I recently worked with Dane and his team on the purchase of a property in Del Mar. We know the area well, but were buying from out of state. Not only is Dane an expert on the area, especially costal Del Mar and La Jolla, I felt 100 precent confident trusting his opinion on the quality of the properties we were seeing, the perceived value of surrounding homes, how to best negotiate and even how to start the process to put work in at the home after the sale. We did not feel rushed, pressured into buying the most expensive homes of the ones we saw or worried in any way that he didn't have our best interest at heart. He made the somewhat confusing escrow process as easy as possible, worked through every detail, and ultimately helped us come to a fair price on our new home. Dane and his team take their time and make sure no stone goes left unturned from start to finish. I highly recommend anyone looking to buy, sale or rent in the San Diego area to start with Dane!
