To whom it may concern,

I had a wonderful experience with Dan during my home search. I was introduced to Dan via one of my close friends as they had recently purchased a beautiful home in Lambert Ranch and Dan provided his great services to them as their realtor.

Dan is very easy to work with and he is very knowledgeable about the real-estate market in Orange County, CA. I explained to him what I was looking for and he understood my needs. He helped me find the perfect home in Irvine, CA that I was looking for in my price range. He assisted me throughout the entire process of getting all the documents ready and signed in time for closing on due date.

Dan is hardworking and very polite family man. I will recommend his services to any of my family or friends. I can assure you that once you hire him he will soon become your friend and not just your realtor.

To whom it may concern,

I am very happy to give Daniel my highest recommendation for anyone in need of a realtor. We used Daniel Finder when looking for a rental property in Irvine. Daniel was diligent in finding our ideal home and continued to work hard for us in a very tough and fast moving rental market. Dan was able to give us insight into the different neighborhoods in Irvine, including public school information and details on what set the neighborhoods apart. He made himself available to us at all hours and worked to find us a great place in our short window of time. From the start of our house hunting with Dan, he made us feel comfortable and confident that we would find the perfect place. We would recommend Daniel to anyone looking to rent or buy a home in the area and will definitely use him for our next home purchase. The level of service and personal connection we received from Daniel gave us a great deal of confidence in making an important decision for our family.

To whom it may concern,

It is with great pleasure and sincere gratitude that we share our personal experience with Daniel "Dan" Finder in the purchase of our condominium in Culver City. From the first moment that we interacted with Dan, we knew that we were not only in good hands, but in great hands.

Our experience with Dan during the entire purchase process was exceptional. He's intelligent, respectful, highly knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate, proactive, follows up when he says he will, accessible, and he facilitated an array of tasks in the real estate process that we had very little knowledge of. The very interesting thing that we both realized was how seamlessly Dan made all of these parts work together - together for good, that is, in that our loan was approved! And, we are thrilled with our purchase, as well as our loan rate!

There were times during the process when we became frustrated, due to the tons of "necessary" paperwork and, then, more paperwork, but, we admired his professionalism and "can-do" attitude. And, through all of that, he performed every task with due diligence, humility, integrity, and grace.

It is because of our personal experience, and first-hand knowledge of Dan's competence, that we highly recommend Daniel Finder for all of your residential real estate needs. We will be forever grateful to Dan for ALL that he did to help make our dream a reality.

Dear Prospective Homeowners:

I recently had the opportunity of having Dan Finder as my real estate agent while I purchased a condo in the Woodbury community of Irvine, and it is my pleasure to recommend him to anyone who may be looking for a new home. As a first-time buyer I was unsure what to expect from the process. However, from our initial meeting Dan took the time to get to know me and gain a better understanding of what I was looking for. With his positive attitude and knowledge of the neighborhoods, he immediately gave me comfort and confidence in looking for my future home. While touring properties, Dan was always very honest in acknowledging both the pros and cons of the homes, and never made me feel pressured. Once in escrow, Dan's attention to detail and organization created a smooth process in a quicker-than-usual escrow period. The entire experience of purchasing my first home was great, and I believe it is largely due to the guidance and advice I received from Dan.

"Dan was a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to rent, sell or buy. Dan treated me not as a client but more like a friend during the time we did business. He was always very courteous and always had my best interests in mind. I'm fairly new to the renting business, so when presented with options, Dan always walked me through the pros/cons and got me thinking about options and possibilities I had not even knew existed. He follows up constantly and so if you are the type who doesn't like constant status updates....well Dan will provide constant status updates and check in periodically to let you know he hasn't forgotten about you. Definitely would work with him again and he has certainly earned not only future business with me, but any future recommendations to friends/family that I may give!

To give a bit more information, I was a homeowner looking to rent out my property to replace my current tenant. It wasn't a pleasant experience as my tenant was not being the most cooperative. Dan would always patiently walk me through my next steps but reassured me constantly that the ultimate decision was mine and not to let the stress of the matter cloud my judgement. He certainly went above and beyond to help me out of my difficult situation, and because of that, most certainly deserving of a great recommendation!"

To Whom it May Concern,

It is my pleasure to recommend Dan Finder to anyone looking for a new home. His performance as our Realtor proved most valuable in acquiring our new home in Irvine, California.

We had never bought any property in the state of California before. Dan's knowledge of the area and knowledge of the rules and regulations made our house hunting and eventual purchase a very enjoyable and easy process.

Dan was always available to answer any and all questions we had. He answered them with total professionalism and honesty; which helped us make a better and wiser decision. A decision we are thrilled with.

If my epxerience with Dan as a Realtor is any indication of how well he performs, you would be very lucky to have him as your Realtor. He really cares and wants to make your family's dreams come true.

To Whom It May Concern:

This month I purchased my very first home through Dan Finder and I could not have had a more positive experience. Being that this was a very new adventure for me it was vital that I had someone to make this process exciting yet informative and I found all of that while working with Dan.

The qualities I was looking for in a real estate agent were characteristics such as being intelligent and enthusiastic within the field of work, great communication and understanding what I wanted. I found all of these qualities in Dan and would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home. This was the biggest purchase I had ever made and I did not want anyone working with me that didn't make me feel that this was a very important event happening in my life or two that I wasn't an important client because I wasn't spending the massive amounts of money that their other clients were spending. I know through discussions with Dan that he had many clients he was working with while working with me and never once did I feel that I took a back seat to anyone else. He always made me feel important and that is something I will always thank him for.

He consistently kept me in the loop about every single activity while purchasing my home along with all the previous locations I had been interested in. The second I had a question or concern he picked up the phone and figured out a solution regardless what time it was and that is something I appreciated to no end because I was never left in the dark. He would always be just as excited about the purchase as I was and it made it an extremely positive experience because once again he was truly working with me to help me find the best place he genuinely cared throughout the process. I feel that everyone should have a real estate agent that cares as much about the home buying process as Dan did for me.

To clearly understand your wants and needs is what you need in a real estate agent. To have a real estate agent with constant excitement and genuine care for you and your search for properties is an extra bonus and thankfully I received all of these qualities in Dan. I'm sad to see this process end but glad to have found a great home and great friend. I know that my future home buying will be through Dan and once again I will be recommending him to anyone searching for their new home because when you work with Dan you know you'll be receiving the best quality service possible.

Thank you,

Kaylin Tucker
