Dan began his real estate career in the late 1980s, and realized almost immediately that waterfront properties were his calling. At that time, very few real estate agents specialized in any particular type of properties, so it was a new concept in the business to focus entirely as a “lakeshore specialist.” But after months of researching over 500 metro area lakes, along with the housing stock and values on each one, Dan began his unique waterfront niche and has never looked back.
What makes Dan’s expertise truly unique is that there are over 1,700 lakes within an hour of Minneapolis and St. Paul, and he has been to nearly every one – selling homes on many of them. He is familiar with the water quality, depths, types of housing, and which of the lakes have the best shoreline for swimming or recreational use. And because of his vast knowledge of the area lakes, he doesn’t drag his buyers to houses on water bodies that don’t fit their needs.
Dan has also found that many potential relocation buyers to the Twin Cities Area would like to live on water, but are not sure if they can afford it. And because they are limited on time when they begin to view homes in person, they can’t take the chance of working with an agent who cannot easily sift through more than 1.000 active area waterfront listings at any given time, and dozens more that come on the market each day. Also, since most Twin Cities real estate agents tend to work in smaller geographic areas, they may not be familiar with many of the surrounding suburbs where the best and most affordable lake homes can be found for a particular buyer.
So whether you are looking for a lake home or cabin anywhere around the Twin Cities, let Dan get you off to a good start. And if you aren’t sure you can get the type of home you want on water, Dan can help you make that decision sooner than later! Contact Dan today at 612-804-9872 or email him at email@example.com.
