Helped me buy home
We were looking for homes in a rough market where the homes were moving quickly and we were often up against several other buyers. Dan was never too busy to take our phone call or meet us at properties during the week or weekend, go back to a place some places multiple times, and we did this for 7 months. Even towards the end he encouraged us not get frustrated or rush into a home that we didn't love. It was nice not to feel pressured into anything. Once we ended up in our house he still would take the time to check in on us and make sure we were doing all right. Really friendly and helpful agent - I would recommend him to anyone trying to find a home in the area. Less ... More

Dan was great! He helped us find our current home. When we ran into issues with our loan officer Dan stepped in to save the day. He helped us find a new lender and finalize the sale. Dan also facilitated the sale of our condo which was underwater. He knows his stuff and is very easy going. I highly recommend!

Dan was highly recommended by my sister. He helped her buy a beautiful home in the desirable neighborhood,riverside, for a great price. Dan is very personable. He made us very comfortable and we felt like we were working with family. He was always willing to listen to our concerns. He always answered our questions. Dan is always available often changing his own plans in order to accommodate our schedule. He was so great at negotiating that after lots of patience and determination he helped us get the house of our dreams in our top choice neighborhood, for a great price, and on our terms. He also helped my sister short sale her condo, which was no easy task, and did it in a short amount of time. I highly recommend Dan for your home buying/selling needs! Less ... More

Dan Stivers is an incredible real estate agent. We were moving out of state and were under a lot of pressure to sell our house quickly. He was very professional, calm and knowledgable and helped us enormously through the process of selling our home. Thanks to his hard work and knowledge of the market, our home sold in under two weeks for a very good price. Even after we accepted an offer on our house, Dan stayed right there with us helping to make sure everything was completed on time and properly. Our home inspection was scheduled right in the middle of a huge flood in the Chicago area. Dan came over to our house immediately during the flood to help us make sure no water came into our basement and he was right there with us through the whole thing. By the time our house closed, he was more of a friend than a real estate agent. I highly recommend him as a real estate agent. Less ... More

My family and I enjoyed working with Dan Stivers. In fact we made a new friend. As I think back on the entire house hunting thing. It amazes me how masterful Dan was. He was always prepared and on time. He showed my husband and I property after property until finally he nailed it. If anyone can get the job done it's Dan Stivers. We are so happy in our new home. So much so, that I would recommend this agent to anyone and all of my friends and all of you. Thank you Dan Stivers. 5 stars

We choose Dan as a realtor when we were looking for a house in the La Grange/Western Springs area. He was always available to show us listings and answer questions. He has a solid knowledge of the area/schools and we always felt that our needs were being taken care of. When we found a house, we listed our previous house with Dan. He did an excellent job marketing our home and it sold quickly. He handled the negotiations on the new house professionally and kept us in the loop the entire time. He attended both closings with us in case we had any last minute questions or needed his assistance. Dan presents himself as a professional and was always punctual. We would highly recommend Dan Stivers to anyone looking to sell or buy a home...he's the best! Less ... More

I came to Dan with the unique experience of having to sell my condo in Illinois while I was living in Washington State. He enthusiastically accepted the task, and when I brought up doing a Short Sale on my condo, he connected me to all the resources I would need for the process and basically held my hand throughout the entire thing. He had a team of excellent real estate professionals, including a wonderful lawyer, and within a few months an offer had come through on my condo.

Helped me buy home
Dan helped my husband and I purchase our "dream home" last year. Still a year later, we both pinch ourselves that we got the house we always dreamed of and Dan was there every step of the way to make the deal happen. He encouraged us to try on a house we otherwise would have passed on, and through his negotiations, we landed THE house my kids will now grow up in. The "buy" side made the stress/huge loss of selling our condo in the city seem like a distant memory. Dan worked with my husband and gave him the confidence to even start the negotiation process here. And we got what we wanted at the price we wanted. That simple. Less ... More

I have had the opportunity to do business with Dan Stivers on several occassions in the past several years. Not only is Dan a very pleasant person to work with but he also has vast knowledge about this area. My time is valuable to me so I always appreciate his quick response to any message I leave for him. If Dan does not know about a property that I am interested in, he does the work and get back to me with all sorts of valuable information. I also appreciate his honesty regarding the price of a property. If he thinks the price is too high he will tell me straight out. He never lets my heart win out over what is best for me financially. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone. In fact, Dan helped my son and his wife find the "perfect" house eventhough they had a very limited budget. He also was able to steer them to a lender who was able to get them the best rate. Not only do I have a great realtor but I now consider Dan to be a great friend!! Less ... More

Dan is a pleasure to work with buying and selling homes. From suggestions for minor updates that made my house look great, to a reasonable sale price and multiple open house dates, Dan was actively bringing buyers into the house even through the holidays. The entire process was worry free for me, because of his attention to detail. I am thrilled that Dan was able to sell my house in 3 months in this economy, allowing my family to move forward with our new home -- a home Dan helped us find!

Helped me buy and sell homes
I would absolutely recommend him to anyone wanting superior service. I have purchased over a dozen homes in the past 20 years and have never experienced the full extent of what an agent can do for you, until I hired Dan to market my home in Brookfield, in 2010; a terrible year for a stubborn seller that needed a top price. Dan gave me several ideas, directed me to reasonably priced, contractors. He then suggested renting, in which he was able to secure a solid rent, with excellent long term tenants. When the time is right for me to sell again, he will get the listing. I then spent the next year trying to purchase a place in Chicago, going through about five different agents, occasionally having Dan show me comparable things in his areas. Wanting to be in Chicago, I finally purchased a place, but told Dan he just had to be my agent in Chicago from now on out.. He has secured me two contracts in less than a month of working together. He has superb negotiating skills, has learned what I want and has occasionally sent me something I missed. Basically Dan is the best, he is a full service agent. Nettie Kula Less ... More
