Dan Hamilton

  • Dan listed and sold my home

      Dan was a professional, extremely friendly, reassuring and always working hard to find the right home and deal for his clients. If I had to use, seek advice or recommend a realtor Dan Hamilton will be the man.

    • Dan was a complete pleasure to deal with. His knowledge and professionalism is exceptional and I felt he was always working in my best interests. Being a foreign purchaser, I relied on his expertise to guide me through the purchasing process and he did that masterfully, right through to closing and beyond. I not only consider him a great agent, but now consider him a friend and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling real estate in the desert

    • Dan had exactly the property in mind that was right for me. He was exceptionally professional throughout the entire process. I could not have asked for a better experience. I am 100% satisfied and give Dan my absolute highest recommendation.

    • Dan Hamilton is the best Real Estate Professional we have ever worked with. As "out of town buyers" we relied heavily on Dan's expertise in all areas.Dan instantly understood our priorities in a property and almost instinctively understood our taste so that or property searches were exceptionally productive. We would arrive in town and Dan would have a meticulously prepared schedule for us including a package of printed informational material on the properties, locations pre-mapped into his vehicles Nav system, and appointments planned down to the minute--how he knew how long we'd spend at each property I have no idea. And amazingly, he never once showed us a property that did not meet our criteria and on each visit we usually saw 3 or 4 properties we could easily have made an offer.The actual purchase was the easiest part as Dan was the consummate professional, great negotiator with a total understanding of the areas trends and practices. Even with a reluctant seller we ultimately landed our dream house.Believe it or not, AFTER the sale is when Dan really impressed us. Again, as out of town buyers, Dan helped us with all of the inspections, arranging for all of the "trades" to get estimates on repairs, handling all the arrangements personally--researching (or using providers from his network of contacts), arranging the estimates, actually going to the property and getting the estimates, and then negotiating it all with the seller.Even after Escrow closed, Dan continues to work with us as we weren't able to move immediately. Dan got the keys to the house and oversaw repairs, painting, and met with other tradesmen to continue to make ready the house for our arrival. He also helped us get settled with the HOA and get set-up on the various utilities. I mean, Escrow is closed, he's off the clock, but he just keeps saying, "I'm here to make is easy for you--I'll take care of it so you don't have to worry", and that's exactly what he's done.Dan was instrumental in us finding and purchasing our dream home. His meticulous organization and knowledge of the area made it an easy and enjoyable process--we looked forward to our trips to the dessert to spend time with Dan. And simply put, I don't know how we could have gotten through any of the rest--Escrow, inspection, repairs, getting the house ready, and moving in--without Dan. I am not an easy person to please, and Dan gets my highest recommendation

    • We have bought and sold 6 houses and Dan is by far the most knowledgeable, honest and professional agent we've worked with. Dan has helped us sell 2 houses and purchase another all within 3 months. His attention to detail and his positive demeanor helped us get through all 3 deals. We fully recommend Dan and plan to work with him on any other real estate deals in the future

      - Joel & Quinn - Palm Desert, CA
    • I would like to take a few moments to convey our thanks to Dan Hamilton for the excellent service he recently provided us in purchasing our home in Palm Desert. Dan listened to our concerns and was very patient with us as we viewed many properties attempting to find the "right" one.When we found the right home for us he was very helpful in walking us through the process of inspections, negotiations and transferring utilities.We would definitely recommend Dan Hamilton to anyone looking to either purchase or sale a property in the Coachella Valley.

      - Alan & Teresa - Palm Desert, CA
    • Six months prior to listing our home, which was on the market last year, we had a very nice solicitation letter from Dan. He took the initiative to contact us. We met with him and several other realtors in our area and we were immediately impressed with his professionalism, his presentation of our home, and his comprehensive marketing plan. His photographer did a masterful job in capturing the essentials of the property. Coupled with Dans knowledge of the local market the property was exposed to a large selection of buyers, both local and distant. After a few open houses, and numerous private showings, Dan and his team of professionals brought us two offers on the same day. One offer was accepted and Dans exceptional attention to detail brought escrow to a satisfactory close within 30 days. We highly recommend Dan and his team, who are ethical and reliable, who you can build a relationship with, to anyone who is interested in selling a home.

    • At our first meeting, he had a rather lengthy computer program speaking to what he will be doing to market our house, what we can expect from him and Coldwell Banker. He is the epitome of what an agent should be. At our first meeting, he was meticulous in eliciting information from us, the sellers, all improvements and upgrades we had done to the house. He spent several hours walking throughout the house making notes and focusing in on the areas/rooms that were focal points to showcase the house to potential buyers. His photographer took amazing pictures of the house, accenting areas that our previous agent's photographer failed to pick up and the quality of the pictures were nothing short of professional. Our house was not shown without him being present because, as he says, no one knows that house better than him. When we received the offer, his follow through was impeccable. I really could go on and on describing his attributes, but there's not enough room. Dan is simply the best.

    • Before retaining Dan we had a bad experience last year with a realtor who lacked marketing skills. We were so fortunate to be referred to Dan by a top realtor in San Francisco who we have known for over 15 years. Although Dan impressed us immediately with his business acumen and enthusiasm for all types of marketing, we still "checked his references" which were stellar. Dan got us into a multiple offer situation which maximized our final price. He also went above normal realtor duties and found us low priced contractors and buyers for our furnishings (this was a second home and the buyer wanted nothing, and we only kept a few things). Can't wait to work with Dan again when we relocate to the Desert in future years. Until then, we will enjoy him as a friend.

    • We are a couple living in Seattle, having just completed the purchase of a second home in Palm Springs. From our first meeting to completion of our purchase, we worked with Dan Hamilton (Dan) over a period of seven and a half months. The Search ... We met Dan in November 2015. He kept in touch with us until we were ready to start our search in March 2016. Working with us long distance, Dan set us up on his company's web site portal so we could view properties on line that met our criteria in Palm Springs proper, as well as in Rancho Mirage and Palm Desert; thereby, making our visits more productive when we traveled to Palm Springs several times to view properties. During the search, Dan was knowledgeable about the neighborhoods, the HOA's, and the construction of the homes. When viewing, we were never hurried through a property. When we had questions that required follow-up, Dan came back quickly with the answers. The Negotiation ... When we identified our property, Dan was easy to work with. He helped us understand our options. We felt confident that we were being well represented. The Purchase ... This was a long distance transaction and the ability to reach Dan whenever we needed to and quickly was important to us. Since we were in Seattle, Dan worked with the contractors we selected to do the inspection, etc. This was also a 1031 Exchange transaction, which meant additional coordination with our 1031 facilitator in Arizona. Dan stayed on top of the many moving parts and we closed on time. Post Purchase ... As soon as the home was ours, Dan made sure the condition of the home was still as agreed. He even made sure the thermostat was set. Now there are some minor repairs we identified earlier in the process, and Dan is coordinating the repairs since we his clients are 1,000 miles away in Seattle. In summary ... We found Dan easy to communicate and work with, competent and thorough, professional, and having high integrity. We will recommend him to others and we would certainly use him again ourselves.
