Selling a home is one of the most stressful, challenging experiences that any family can undertake. We learned this lesson personally during our retirement quest and move from the Puget Sound region in 2013. There is but one way to ensure you minimize that challenge?.don?t go it alone. Step 1: Find a PROVEN real estate professional to help. Step 2: DO WHAT YOU?RE TOLD. The Step 2 challenge will be very difficult for you, but taking our advice on Step 1 will make life so much easier for you. The fees are dwarfed by the advantages. And the benefit to your health? ?. priceless. This brief story illustrates our point. John L. Scott Real Estate in Silverdale, WA was where we found Mr. Danny Horovitz. Or pre-sale research hinted that Danny was a ?skilled, knowledgeable and successful agent?. Having gone through the sales process with him at our side, we must now add these terms to that definition; ?personable, responsive, ethical, tenacious, accommodating, accountable, determined and, of course, wonderfully PROFESSIONAL?. We first discovered these traits during the preparatory process as we got the home and property ready for market. They were amplified as the process unfolded. Danny was there every inch of the way?coaching, counseling, clearing obstacles and encouraging us to stay happy throughout. He knew how the story would end. On our marketing debut, Day 1, Danny hosted an Open House. It was at this event he got the attention of many area realtors, brokers and a couple of potential buyers. While designed as a showcase for his peers, this Open House actually identified the eventual buyer of the home. Danny had spent some time with a young couple attending and apparently made an impression on them, as well. To our amazement, he had a serious buyer in two hours, an offer made in 48 hours and a signed contract in 96 hours. Granted, our experience may have been extraordinary, statistically, but one fact is crystal clear. It would not have happened at all without Mr. Horovitz at the helm. We could not have found a better real estate agent to help us. Five whole stars for Danny and the John L. Scott team. With great appreciation, Joe and Deanna Peck Less ... More

Danny Horovitz was very patient with us since we were first time buyers. He did his homework and advised us on comparables so that we were comfortable knowing we made the correct choices. I cannot begin to express what a pleasure it was working with Danny.

We are so glad Danny represented us as our agent when we were looking for a home to buy in Bremerton. Danny is patient, energetic, knowledgeable, and has a great personality. We had spoken with many real estate agents over the phone, but when we spoke with Danny, we could tell by his questions that he really wanted to know what was important to us. We knew right away that we wanted to work with Danny! While we were out looking at homes for sale, we were particularly impressed that Danny would make the effort to talk with neighbors to find out information about the neighborhood, etc. Since we were looking at older homes, we were also very impressed with his knowledge about houses from an inspection point of view. He would look for and point out any problems such as structural, roof, water leakage, and so much more that we never would have been able to ascertain ourselves before making an offer. Throughout the time we worked with Danny, he was very responsive to our calls and emails, which was especially important to us because we came to Bremerton from out of state to look for a home to buy. Our transaction went smoothly due in large part to Danny's efforts and thoroughness. We highly recommend Danny to anyone! Less ... More

Danny Horovitz is a realty all-star. He bats 1000 for your team from the moment the first ball is pitched at pre-season until the last beer is drank and the World Series championship party. To my knowledge Danny doesn't actually play baseball, but he is an absolutely, honest-to-goodness, flat-out remarkable realtor. He exceeded my every expectation, and then some. I met with two different realtors in the beginning, because they both had extremely impressive online reviews. Danny was the second. At first, I met him in his office, sat down, and told him what I wanted. I told him the price I was looking for, the features which were important to me, and those which weren't. He listened very intently, and threw clarification questions back at me to help him better understand my values. I was impressed; I felt respected and immediately realized that my opinions mattered a great deal to him. I believe he even took notes. On our second meeting, we crawled into his simple, tasteful, and clean Kia to go house shopping. The car made a lasting impression on me, because the other realtor I met with took me out in a brand new turbo-charged V8 BMW. That same realtor with the flashy car later tried to talk me over and above my price range. She consistently showed me properties above my price point. She told me "You don't need to pay off your mortgage in cash." She sold the idea that a mortgage was meant to be carried for all of one's life. Danny NEVER did anything of the sort. He showed me some houses that were 5-10% above my price point because he knew we could offer back down to my price point. He was very detailed in describing where I might have to sacrifice in order to meet my price point with the features I was looking for. He also showed me houses that were 10-15% UNDER my price point because he wanted me to have a good feel for the market. It worked. We looked at two dozen houses or so, and I got to the point that I could look at a house with him, and come up with a real value estimate which was very near his expert opinion. Now THAT is a realtor. Then I put him to the test. I decided, after looking at a dozen houses or so with Danny, that I wanted a 15 year loan, and thus I *lowered* that price point. He didn't mind one bit. He really wanted me to be looking at houses that I was comfortable buying, even though he knew it would mean less money for him. The man has an extraordinary pride in his work, and it is that pride which makes him successful, unlike other realtors who find "success" by consistently selling their clients more houses than they want. Take the time to meet the man. You'll see what I mean. He listens, he asks questions, he answers questions. He is an excellent communicator and makes the first-time buyer feel like an expert. I could not be any happier with my purchase, and I credit 100% of that happiness to the effort put in by Mr. Danny Horovitz. Less ... More

Danny was extremely helpful from the start. He was recommended by a friend, and for me, that is the best start. He worked within my budget and didn't push me to go over my limits. Danny also referred me to a loan officer who worked with me too. He would even show me the houses that I requested, even if he knew they would be nasty and too much work. He walked around with me and shared his knowledge about the structure or electrical systems, especially those that should be noted since they would come up in the appraisal. He talked me through all the legalities of buying a "fixer-upper" and what loans would work and what my expectations should be. He really helped me get the best house I could and fought for the best price on my behalf. I have already recommended him to some of my friends looking to buy a house. I will continue to recommend and have Danny as my real estate agent for future purchases and sales because of his down-to-earth personality and personal integrity that I think is hard to find these days.

My husband and I just recently purchased our first home with the help of Daniel "Danny" Horovitz. Danny really listened to what we wanted and helped us each and everyday with setting up appointments to go see homes. The correspondence was excellent and we felt relaxed and put our full trust in him. Danny helped us find our home very quickly as well as close when we desired. Since we are military and not originally from the area, it was a huge relief to have Danny inform us about about the neighborhood and demographics. He is quite knowledgeable and was just very concerned and focused on our needs and wants. We got along very well. We recommend anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable and genuinely caring person to go through Danny to help find a home. Less ... More

My first contact with Dan was in reference to a condo he had listed. We met and spent a good amount of time talking about what I was looking for. I was impressed with his knowledge and level of personal concern and involvement. I am a retired disabled Vietnam Veteran and spent most of my life building houses and owning my own real estate business. I had spent the prior ten year working in Christian ministry and was to a large extent, was pretty much removed from the real estate market. What I was really looking for was a house on a few acres that could double as a ministry home base and a residence I could live in. After several month of search, we found the perfect spot. This was only the beginning of a nearly six month arduous journey to get it closed. Dan never gave up! He went beyond just being a real estate agent. He was instrumental in solving numerous problems from a new septic system, to obtaining tax summaries. Honestly, at one point in the process, I did not think we were going to get it closed. We wrote the first offer in May and did not close until the middle of November. This was a difficult VA loan and required a skilled agent to get things done. Dan accomplished it, and I write this review to thank him again for his outstanding effort, knowledge and excellent skill in being a first rate real estate agent! Less ... More

Daniel Horovitz has been highly professional and knowledgeable throughout the short-sale of my Bremerton, WA property. He took the time to explain the process from beginning to end which made it smooth and relatively stress free. I was also very impressed with the consistent level of communication I recieved regarding even the smallest issues. I would highly recommend him for any real estate needs one may have!

I contacted Danny to help with our short sale process based on another online review. My husband and I did not know what to expect from a short sale and Danny was informative, responsive and stayed on top of all the details. The process was lengthy, filled with mountains of paperwork and, at times, confusing but Danny was always courteous and willing to offer further explanations without any condescending attitude - EVER. Danny Horovitz was extremely knowledgable and we will absolutely use his services in the future as well as recommend him to others. Less ... More

It's not easy to find an agent who know exactly what you are looking for. He LISTENED to the details you gave him. He put 150% and went extra miles (all over Washington State) to show us homes that we liked. In this particular case...he helped us buy a short-sale home and everyone know this type of sale can last for a very long time. He introduced us to this new neighborhood that we didn't know about at the time and fell deeply in love with it. My point is he used the information you gave him and found a perfect house for us. Danny was on it the moment we made an offer. He followed up with the short-sale team and gave us updates every week maybe even everyday. We'd never had to follow up with him. We managed to close this short-sale home in 6 months. All I'm saying he's the best.... Less ... More

Danny helped me to buy a great home on a short sale. If you're not familiar with short sales, they are anything but short! The sale took about 7 months and Danny was on top of things for the entire process. If I had any questions about the process he took the time to explain any detail, and knew all the pitfalls to avoid. He helped move things along even though the banks and negotiating companies were painfully slow. It's a good thing too because we managed to close just before the deadline. If I'd been working with a less experienced and dedicated agent I probably would have lost the sale. Thanks Danny. Less ... More

My wife and I were making a move from the east coast to the west coast. Danny was extremely instrumental in helping us to chose a house from a variety of different houses presented. He listened to our opinions and created an environment in which we were able to make a comfortable decision. When we started negotiations for a mortgage, Danny stood up for us many times against a bank that was dragging their feet. Without his interventions, the entire process would most likely have failed. From the beginning to the end, he was polite and focused on maintaining the outcome. Anyone would be pleased to have Danny as their real estate agent! Less ... More

Danny sold 2 spec houses for us. One during the peak of sales and one during the slump. He exhibited a consistent plan for the sale of both houses. He offered a variety of ideas and options for marketing the homes. He took the time to explain the different offers that came in and allowed us to make decisions based on our needs. As owner/builders, we appreciated Danny's professionalism and personal touch. We are looking forward to listing our next spec house with Danny.

I had the opportunity to work with Danny a few years ago. He was very nice and eager to help us sell our house. We had our house on the market for several months and not one person showed interest in it. He told us that it was priced too high for the area and that if we came down just a little it would do better. So we hired him as our agent and let him do all the work. The house started showing with an open house and not long after it SOLD! Rose

We hired Danny to sell our home because he was the seller's agent when we bought it, and we were very impressed with his professionalism and the way in which he always kept his client's interest in mind. We trusted Danny to sell our home in a very difficult market with unusual circumstances, and Danny was unwavering in his dedication to us, even though things got difficult for him at times. He always kept us in the loop about what was going on, provided advice when we were uncertain about how to proceed, and took the reins when we didn't have time to do something ourselves. Danny is soft-spoken, but he is dedicated and tenacious when it comes to helping his clients. I would not hesitate to recommend him, and if I were to ever purchase another home in Washington state, he would be the first one I'd call. You can't do better. Less ... More

This is your guy. Flatout. I moved from out of state (CA) and went through the process of buying my first home remotely. Danny's involvement, attention to detail, flexibility and unending well of patience were key elements in the process. He is always willing to offer assistance and expert knowledge regardless of time and day and will never leave you hanging. This is the type of person you want on your side through the convoluted process of buying property. He was particularly sensitive to me being a first time home buyer and steered me through a long process of finding the right area and the right house. He was always willing to look at locations for me while I was not in state to do so myself and had no problems spending weekend days visiting properties when I was able to come into town. He is very high touch, in tune with current market shifts and is easy to communicate with via any method you are comfortable with. Basically, he does what it takes to accomplish your goals and all without being overbearing or pushy or impatient. I wouldn't think of anyone else to have in your corner for a buy/sell process.

Danny was amazing through a rather difficult process. Our house was bank owned and the banks agent was let?s say difficult to reach at almost any time and Danny was more than willing to keep the press on to ensure we got the house we wanted. He knew the process for the VA home loan extremely well and I can say without his help we wouldn?t be enjoying our new home. He ensured to inform us of each step in the process and where we stood at every point. This purchase was very complicated and Danny handled it with professionalism and I dare say caring. Even after our purchase was complete Danny has taken his time to contact us and make sure we are happy. I can say that we are very happy and would recommend Danny Horovitz for anyone looking to purchase their home. Less ... More

Danny was great! We made his job quite difficult by living in Southern CA while he was searching for a home for us here. He had to familiarize himself with the area we wanted and make the drive over here every time our daughter drove past a house she wanted to see. He walked around homes and made videos that he uploaded to us via e-mail. He made sure we got through the paperwork quickly when speed was important. Danny was easy to work with. He was professional, but friendly. He really did a good job for us, and followed up with us the next week and next month to see if we were satisfied. We would recommend Danny to anyone.

Danny helped me by my first home, and being in my 20's I really had no idea what I was doing. He provided me with charts and data that showed what types of houses were being sold, put on sale, how much they were going for, which areas were showing growth, and a bunch of other things I've probably already forgotten. If you're looking for a house in Kitsap, I really can't recommend a better person then him.
