Danny was a pleasure to work with in the search for our new home. He traveled wherever we wanted to go and provided insight on each home we looked at. It was our first time purchasing a home and Danny made us feel comfortable and provided the knowledge we needed. The entire process went smoothly and we highly recommend working with Daniel Graves!!

I honestly cannot say enough good things about our experience working with Dan to purchase our home. He really helped give insight and direction while still letting us be in control of our buying process. The whole process went very smoothly from start to finish and Danny was so great at communication and keeping us in the loop. We bought at a not so great time and Dan did not let us get discouraged or pressure us into anything no matter how many houses we wanted to look at. He knows what to watch for and knows where to look to find things that might be of concern to his buyers. We were extremely fortunate to have him representing us and I would recommend him to anyone. We could not be happier with our home

Dan Graves is a great realtor, and really puts in the time and effort for his clients. With the tough market it took months to finally find the right house at my price point. Dan kept at it and got me my dream house.

Dan helped my wife and I sell and purchase in March of 2021, during an incredibly difficult market seeing 20-30 offers most over asking price. He not only managed to secure our dream home at a good price, but simultaneously sold our previous home for a premium. Dan is extremely knowledgeable, organized, great communicator and negotiator, getting his clients top dollar selling and best value purchasing. All while under pressure to make happen before our second daughter was born. We couldn’t be happier having worked with Dan and he will be our first call if we decide to sell/buy again the future!

Dan went above-and-beyond as my real estate agent when selling my first home. He provided valuable insight to assess the value of my home as we determined an asking price. His photography and design skills were apparent when he created the sale flyers and online listing pages; his presentation of the house and property was amazing! During the short time that my home was on the market, Dan continually stayed in touch with me regarding interested buyers and other relevant updates. His prompt responses to all my questions were very much appreciated. When multiple offers were made on the same day, Dan clearly laid out the details of each offer and answered all questions that I had before I made my final decision. I would highly recommend Dan as your real estate agent because of his professionalism, broad real-estate knowledge, genuine friendliness, and sincere desire to help to either sell your home or find your next one!

We met Dan after having failure with another agent. Dan is extremely dedicated and always goes the extra mile. We had numerous requirements for our home which didn’t stop Dan! He found us our home which ticked off all of our requirements. He was always available to answer any questions and walked us through the entire process making us feel very secure and informed every step of the way. He is patient and always put our needs first. I would highly recommend Dan for any real estate needs.

Dan is as honest and hardworking as they come. He’s patient and you can tell he wants you to feel excited and comfortable in the home you’re buying. His overall experience in purchasing and renovating properties gives him valuable insights into the process and a keen ability to see the potential in any home. I’d definitely recommend him no matter what you’re in the market for.

We recently hired Dan to help us sell our condo and find our next home. Our condo sale was complex, but Dan knew his stuff and did his research to get the job done! He communicated well and was organized throughout the entire process. We decided to build our next home, and having Dan by our side to give his expertise and to help with negotiations was clutch. Thanks for everything Dan!
