"Dan's business has a motto: "Let Hendel Handle It"! We did and our SF home sale couldn't have gone better. We currently live in Seattle, having converted our Sherwood Forest home into a rental property ten years ago. Dan immediately jumped into action following the tenant's move out and handled every aspect of the repairs, upgrades and staging that he recommended prior to listing. He obtained multiple estimates, managed the contractors, advised us without any pressure exerted, and had the house ready to list in mid-January, 2020. He's a master of open houses and marketing, even preparing gourmet lunches at his broker's open house and snacks at others. Two very busy and successive weekend open houses led to 11 offers, all over the listing price, within 12 days after listing. The top offer, 25% over listing, was with a "clean", strong buyer. We closed 30 days later in late February without a single glitch in between. Dan handled everything and we simply relaxed in Seattle getting timely "

"When we began the process of selling our home we looked for an agent who would listen to us and would understand our quirky, wonderful little cottage. Most of the agents we interviewed wanted us to move out so they could paint the interior wall colors (we had used a fairly colorful palette) and stage it. That process would have been difficult for us since I was also in process of retiring from 30 years as a teacher and since we were looking to buy a home in Sonoma. Then we met Dan. He truly heard us and was able to work with our specific needs. He did not change paint colors but just helped us de-clutter so that he could show our home as is (just a few changes to the footprint.) He and his incredible team helped us rearrange furniture and even helped to clean our windows. We only needed to be away from the house for one weekend and 2 evenings. And YES, HE SOLD OUR SMALL HOME IN ONE WEEK, for well over listing price, and to a young couple who also fell in LOVE with our beautiful little "
"We attempted to sell our condo in Noe Valley this Spring but ran into issues with our agent not giving us the best advice (timing, staging, list price, what to renovate for the best return, etc), and we ultimately pulled the unit from the market to regroup. After a few months of better planning, we decided to work with Dan (and Raul) and we couldn't have been happier. Dan's knowledge of the SF real estate game is endless, he's a charmer/true sales professional, and he extremely thorough in his communication. Dan Hendel HANDLED our condo sale, to the tune of several offers over asking, and he truly saved the day (we needed the condo sale for a better purchase in Oregon). Working with Dan is a no-brainer if you want to sell your place, and don't want to stress about the process."
