Dan's most recent endorsements
Dan is a very personable and knowlegable realtor / broker. I have know Dan for about 10 years and he has always done a great job for me. On one project Dan took the time to help me do a little painting in order to get the house on the market quickly. NO OTHER realtor would do this. I would highly reccomend Dan for all your real estate needs or questions.– Frank Preston
Dan Rowe is straight forward and easy to talk to. Great guy to work with!– John Kim Lindsay
Dan Rowe was very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and all the aspects of financing a home. He listened and understood what we were looking to buy. He did not try to steer us to something we could not handle physically or financially. Dan was open and honest about the pros and cons of each home we viewed. His counsel and dependability made our home buying experience complication free.– Christine and Geary Reynolds
I choose to work with Dan because he knows his stuff! He is very educated about his industry and can "think outside of the box" as well. He is also very experienced in his field. My expectations are not always met when I work with Dan, he often EXCEEDS them. He is efficient and willingly provides the most up to date information about RE. He is also a great problem solver. I believe I am most impressed with how Dan can work the numbers. He can give a relatively accurate estimate (market value, sales info, closing info, cash flow &/or cost on investments, range of monthly payment) on anything I have requested. He is usually right on the mark! I already refer anyone I know to work with Dan. He has done such a great job with my many RE challenges, I know he will benefit anyone whom chooses to work with him. Most recently, I referred a family member to Dan and he was very, very pleased with Dan's professionalism and "make-it-happen" attitude. The sales transaction was a success.– Peggy Wilson
Dan went above and beyond my expectations as a Realtor i would recommend him to anyone and look forward to working with him again in the future. He is very knowledgeable and courteous, always looked out for my well being. He found me a house in my price range that met all my needs fast and efficiently. call Dan he will not disappoint you– Jared Wilson
Dan has been our Realtor of choice for many years. We have known him to be a man of integrity and dedication to his customers. We wanted someone who would present the pros and cons of any property we were looking at. Dan always researches properties in depth to keep us well informed. Phone calls and e-mails are always promptly returned. We would strongly recommend Dan to anyone needing the help of a realtor.– Bob and Sharon Kerr
5 Stars!!!!! Dan is extremely knowledgeable in the real estate industry. We have purchased 4 homes with Dan as our realtor and now, I wouldn't use anyone else. He really is very, very good at getting us the most house for our money.– Carleen Egbert
I was working with Dan for the last year, searching for both personal and investment properties. Dan is very familiar with the Treasure valley real estate market. Especially with distressed and bargain properties. Dan always gives sincere and honest advice. He always made sure that I had the complete picture regarding any property of interest. Dan is also very familiar with all aspects of selecting and owning an investment property. This allows him to give useful advice from pricing the property to the evaluation of any additional cost such as repair costs and return on investment estimation. Dan is always very pleasant to talk to. He always listened and took into consideration any request or need I expressed.– Amir Leber
Dan allowed us the oppertunity to shop for a residence at our own pace. We gave him the criteria of what our desires were in a house and he gave us automatic email updates. He was very patient and never pressured us. When we found what we were looking for he responded very quickly. His knowledge and expert partners allowed us to close the deal. He worked well with our bank and the listing agent.– Chris Veloz
I have used Dan Rowe Not just one time but several times over the years. Dan has experience that I believe surpasses many Realtor's on the Market today. Dan notices things about homes that most do not. Dan can point out things that are right or wrong with a structure. Dan is vested in getting me the best home for the Money. Dan touched base with me through the entire process making sure I understood where we were at in the purchase of my home. I believe that Dan Rowe operates with full integrity that many have lost over the years. When My children are in a position to bye a Home I will push them to use Dan Rowe. Dan's Knowledge of the valley and homes in the Valley was amazing. This time as the few times before over the years, I was impressed with the way Dan Handled the process and how comfortable I feel when discussing things with Dan. There are times in a persons travels they meet someone that is a Professional they can count on, In my book this is Dan Rowe when purchasing a Home or Selling a Home. Dan has helped me do Both. Thanks Dan for another Stress free Home Purchase.– Blaine Bowen
We were refered to Dan by family, and ever so glad we were. He truly helped us make the home buying process be the best it could be. He only showed us houses that met our qualifications, and even though we wanted a fixer upper, he knew as first time home buyers that they are a lot of work, and showed us the potential projects that could also arise. His knowledge of the area really helped us wwith deciding where we didn't want to be and what would help us in the future if we ended up wanting to sell our house. We found our gem about a month after starting and he set us up with full knowledge of what to expect falling for a short sell house. It took a long 4 months after the offer was placed to get our approval and 3 weeks to make the house actually ours but Dan never gave us false expectations, helped us whenever we had questions, and even set better expectations with our final costs than our lender. His 20 years of experience really shows through, and makes the difference. We pass his name everytime our friends or family are looking for a house, and we will always use Dan if/when another house is needed.– Kristina Sedelmeier
My wife and I were referred to Dan by family, and we're glad they did. He was great at organizing houses to look at that fit our criteria, and when going through them all he pointed out any positives and negatives about the properties - not just the obvious cosmetic stuff, but pointed out little things that were signs of larger potential problems. His experience as a property manager himself, his own professional and personal experiences with working on homes, and the 100's of inspections he's been along with have made him invaluable to look at a home with. I appreciated he's not a suit/tie kind of guy, he wasn't hesitating to hop into a crawlspace or climb on stuff to check for potential expensive fixes that would normally only be discovered on an inspection. He made all the legalize make sense when it came to the paperwork, did everything with us every step of the way, it was a wonderful experience that was easy and fun! We've already recommended him to other family moving to the area and Dan quickly found them a house too! I will continue to recommend Dan to anyone who wants a down-to-earth Realtor, who's more than just a guide through the paperwork!– David Huitt Jr
My husband and I just relocated to Idaho from California. I have been a licensed real estate broker in CA since 1999 and consider myself to be a relocation specialist. I have assisted many people in the relocation process, but I've never been through the process myself until now! Dan was recommended to us, and I have to say that I am skeptical about working with realtors I don't know, because I know all the things that can go wrong when realtors don't do their jobs right. Dan has been amazing to work with! He is professional, honest, ethical, smart, and made this move a great experience. The realtor who represented the buyers of our home in CA was none of the above and made the CA end of our move a nightmare, but the Idaho end couldn't have gone smoother, and Dan was able to jump in and make adjustments in our transaction when our escrow didn't close on time for the sale of our CA home. He knows his contracts and explained everything to us every step of the way rather than just shoving papers at us and asking us to "Sign here." We were not able to be in Idaho for our inspection, and that would normally be a big deal for me as I am a very detail oriented person, but I felt totally confident in having Dan be at our inspection and take us on a tour of our new home and all of it's systems after we moved in. He has such great background and experience in all of the details of how a home works and how to maintain its' various systems. He has been a wonderful guide for us in learning how to take care of a home here. I've never owned a home with a crawlspace rather than a cement slab, I've never lived anywhere that gets snow, and I don't know the nuances of taking care of a home in this climate or in this local (example: we tap into canal water here to water our yard). Dan has walked us through everything and I'm grateful he is just a phone call away. We had total peace of mind in making this big move thanks to Dan! We love our new home and couldn't be happier with our experience with Dan. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone selling or buying a home in the Boise area. Thanks Dan!– Sheri Appleby
Dan is extremely knowledgeable in handling the real estate business. I just purchased my third home. He has an eye for the best quality houses in neighborhoods with the best value property characteristics, financing options and personalization.– Dale Rapp
My spouse and I have known Dan for many years. Over that time, he has been a great sounding board and adviser. He has demonstrated extreme patience in our various explorations of locating potential rentals, and subsequently our relocation to a retirement home. I feel that I could be accused of plagiarizing from other satisfied clients who have reviewed Dan, but it is all true! In working with Dan, I feel that a partnership is created and that the trust with his clients will not be tarnished. He strives for what is fair and a win/win situation. He is innately down to earth, sensible, logical, has a cool head, and a great sense of humor. He is calm, balanced and a seasoned real estate agent. He listens to clients’ ideas and provides constructive feedback based on his wide range of experience. We have never doubted his inclinations and reasoning. Dan puts his heart into his projects and he can handle any delicate matters well through tact and politeness. He is articulate and imparts confidence in his realistic approach, and does not take advantage. He is complete and thorough at every stage of negotiations, and anticipates potential concerns and reasonable outcomes. It’s obvious that these qualities in Dan have been seasoned over a long period of time. It’s likely that the majority of his results are very positive for all involved. You will not go wrong in having Dan Rowe as your representative in any real estate transaction you wish to pursue. He is a top notch person of high integrity and character, and a true professional! - Sally Casler-Carpenter– Sally Casler
Where do I begin? My husband and I have worked with several real estate agents over the years. Since 1987, I have worked with 14 different real estate agents. Dan Rowe is far and away the best real estate agent we have ever worked with, Dan Rowe is the definition of a professional real estate agent. Our home sale was going to be a challenge right from the start. We were 350 miles (6.5 hours) away. We just wanted to get out from under the house which we had been renting out for several years waiting for the market to rebound. We had little money to work with to get it ready to sell and were going to make just enough to cover the mortgage. This was a definite "fixer upper" that was going to be a challenge to sell under certain lending requirements. Dan was honest and realistic right from the start. He and his resources helped us get the house ready for listing. Along every step of the process, Dan presented us with all options in every situation and his recommendations. We relied heavily on his recommendations because it was obvious he knew what he was talking about because of his extensive experience. He never steered us wrong. Unfortunately, we all got blind-sided by an old Planning and Zoning issue that landed on us to resolve. Dan kept his cool the entire time as he tried to keep us calm -- no easy task on this one. :-) He worked tirelessly to help us get past this issue along with the continued repairs required to comply with FHA requirements. Dan Rowe is HONEST, has INTEGRITY, is KNOWLEDGEABLE, is a HARD WORKER. We have been bragging about Dan since day one and will continue to highly recommend him for years to come. Dan Rowe is THE real estate professional to guide you through a successful purchase or sale transaction from start to finish.– Daveand Laura
Dan is a fantastic realtor I've had a pleasure of doing business with. He was very responsive and not only guided me through the process but was able to assist with ensuring that all pitfalls were avoided. Also as someone who bought a home long distance, Dan was effectively my hands/feet/eyes. Going through the process of purchasing a home and getting it ready for occupancy would not have happened without Dan's help. He is honest, genuine and sincere. This is the guy people wish their realtor was!– Mike Asadoorian
As a first time home buyer, I had a LOT of questions. Dan always had an answer and experience to back it up. I was looking in a harsh sellers market which was frustrating. But with Dan's help, I not only got a good deal but one that met all my requirements- not an easy task. Dan was personable, punctual and most importantly, was always looking out for my best interests. I never felt pressured but always felt informed. Highly recommend.– Kyle Bell
