“I had the pleasure of working with Danielle W. It was my first home purchase and the process was quite lengthy (~10 months). Throughout the duration of the home search, Danielle maintained top notch professionalism and persistency in finding the perfect home for me. I never felt pressured to make an offer on any property, unlike my prior experiences with other agents. This alleviated a lot of stress that comes with the home search and purchasing process. After 9 months of searching, we’ve finally found the perfect home. The subliminal support from Dani continued through the loan application & closing processes, and it even extended post closing. To simply say it was a pleasure having Dani as my agent. If y’all ever get the opportunity, I’d highly recommend working with her. Once my relatives decide to purchase, I will definitely refer them over! Thank you for setting the gold standard for real estate agents Dani!” - Michael Le (Google Review)
