About Dan

I was born about an hour north of Anchorage, in Palmer, Alaska, where my family owned a small farm and home business. Our home was close to the Knik River, a few miles from the Butte in the (semi-)famous farming community, the Matanuska Valley, home to world class cabbage and potatoes). My grandparents were dairy farmers from Wisconsin who had moved to the area in 1935 as homesteaders in a Depression era land grant program. I learned very early the basic values of starting early each day, planning and prioritizing the day to make the most of it, doing what you say you are going to do, and making every effort to finish the job before calling it a day. The work ethic my parents and grandparents taught me has served me well in my real estate career! I am married to Kristi and have three children: Corene, who lives in Pennsylvania with her husband & kids; Ryan, who lives in New York; and our youngest son, Cody, who just graduated from high school! In my spare time I enjoy fat tire biking, skeet shooting, reading, and snowmachining with Cody. I love Alaska, Anchorage, and helping people achieve their real estate goals!

"The agent HomeLight recommended is one of the best we have ever worked with. I never would have been able to find an agent this good without the help of HomeLight."

Jill T.

HomeLight Client

"HomeLight makes the work of selling your house an easy task. Within 2 days after listing, we had 2 offers and the house sold a couple of weeks later very close to our asking price. We had contacted other services, but HomeLight was by far the best. "

Larry B.

"I sold my home in one day and the closing process and inspection went very smoothly... I felt comfortable knowing my realtor had a proven success record and that HomeLight did the vetting for me."

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Lakes?

It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Lakes?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
