Daniel Smith successfully helped us to purchase a house and property in a smooth, professional manner. Daniel was our buyer's agent on a recent purchase in December 2018 on the San Mateo County Coastside. Daniel identified a property that matched our wish list, researched it, and brought it to our attention. Just when we thought we had seen all available properties. He surprised us with this great find of a house! He stood out from other Realtors because he found a property that had been overlooked on the market for some time. He took the detailed steps of researching the property with the city and county and found out the house was sitting on a double lot. All this, directly in the middle of the Christmas or New Years' holiday season. Daniel is super-responsive, patient, polite, and persistent. Come to find out, he was dealing with a seller's agent that was unconventional, and hard to contact and communicate with. He kept us informed throughout the process and on Christmas Eve our offer was accepted! His strategies worked, he had the upper hand and knew the area. He helped us decide on an aggressive offer-price, based on the property condition, additional lot, and recent sales in the area. Ultimately, he was able to negotiate the house for us $100,000 under the asking price, and with clean terms of sale. We are pleased to have worked with Daniel! Daniel has our highest recommendation and referral as a Realtor, based on our successful experience.
