Here are just a few of my past client reviews!
“Danielle was a joy to work with. Not only is she knowledgeable, but she took “ownership” of the process. She started off by asking us to see a few homes BEFORE we were ready to buy so she could better understand what we wanted and be on the lookout for opportunities. She provided us guidance during the negotiation process based on her years of experience as a realtor and based on her current market knowledge. She investigated and provided us copies of any legal issues that arose (easement issues, etc). She was able to distinguish between administrative issues and business issues (a very rare quality) – handling the administrative issues on her own and only engaging us for business decisions. She ensured she was always available for questions and/or concerns and we could tell she cared that we were making the right home choice for us – not just trying to close a sale. The best recommendation we can give is that we would use Danielle again!!!”
“I highly recommend Danielle as a buyer’s agent to anyone looking to purchase a home in the San Diego county area. I currently live in the SF Bay Area, but am familiar with the San Diego area. I gave Danielle criteria of what I was looking for in a home. She selected a list of homes, and we refined the list by email. I then scheduled a couple of days around mid-December to come down to SD to look at the offerings. She accurately assessed my needs, and tailored our home visits accordingly. After she patiently showed me many houses up and down the SD coast, I decided to purchase a townhouse at a new development in North SD county.
This is where Danielle really began to shine. I had bought houses before, but had never bought a new home directly from the builder. As I found out, home builders make used car salesman seem like reputable, trustworthy citizens. Danielle was very knowledgeable and ready for all their tricks.
For anyone interested, I can give a LOT more detail on how Danielle helped me deal with the builders. (In fact, the original draft of this review contained way too much detail). But, in short, she:
1. Negotiated substantial “builder’s credits” from the builder to use for flooring and upgrades;
2. Made sure the final contract price did not include these “builder’s credits” in final purchase price. This will save me money each year on property taxes;
3. Made sure they responded in a timely fashion. (The builder wants everything done quickly by the buyer, but doesn’t feel the need to reciprocate.)
4. Excellent objective negotiator. Buying a home can be very emotional. It is good to have a trained, objective advocate on your side to best represent your interests, and Danielle does that very well.
In short, she did a great job helping me find and buy a home, and she will be the first agent I contact when I am again ready to buy or sell.”
“Danielle helped us solve our realty problem quickly and efficiently. We had to move from Tokyo to Carlsbad and we had only a few days for a house-hunting trip. The way she designed the order of our house hunting was perfect. You could tell she had put thought even into that detail. In the end we found a fantastic house in two days. She has continued to help us even after the sale. Finding kennels, a lawyer and banker. She’s a great resource.”
“Danielle is incredibly professional and knowledgeable! She brought buyers to our home before it even hit the market! She was masterful at managing the sale. She has a law background, so is an expert in contract negotiations. She was always cool and level-headed and instilled a sense of calm to the process of selling our home in a short time-frame.”
“Danielle helped my wife and me buy our first home together. She’s the only reason we survived the purchase from hell, and landed our dream home. Working with the sellers was nearly enough to drive us away, but Danielle’s patience, guidance, and tenacity made it possible for us to close the deal. Danielle provided sound, honest advice from the beginning. She offered recommendations for the best inspectors, contractors, and others in the business to ensure this was the right home for us. More than anything, Danielle fought hard for us and got us an outstanding deal in the process. We’re so grateful for the exceptional level of service we received and readily recommend Danielle to anyone dealing in San Diego’s tough real estate market.”
“Danielle is a rare find in the San Diego real estate community. She is offers very personalized consultation for real estate services. Being a local resident in the north coastal San Diego area, she is also extremely knowledgeable about the area. Danielle is undoubtedly the most responsive agent we have come across. She immediately calls us or emails us to answer any questions we had. Probably our biggest compliment to her as a person and real estate professional, is that she is honest and she cares! She is way more than a real estate agent. She is a respected neighbor. We recommended her to our friends and coworkers and she sold their house in Pacific Beach in one weekend, and found them a house in La Jolla the next weekend. Highly recommended!”
“We hired Danielle to sell our Carmel Valley home during the holiday season. As a savvy property investor over the years, I was impressed with Danielle’s experience and professional opinions that led to us getting the highest priced sale in our neighborhood. This included understanding the value of paint colors, de-cluttering, and ultimately, staging. We did not initially want to stage the home as it’s costly. Danielle shared many before and after photos from her past sales and explained that staged homes consistently sell faster and for more money. Eventually, she convinced us to stage and I’m glad she did. Even though our house had been remodeled, the staging enhanced the home’s best features and created an emotional connection with Buyers. I had seen other homes staged before, but like any service, there is average staging and fabulous staging. Our home showed beautifully with its best features on display.”
“My family left our hometown of 23 years to move to San Diego. It was an overwhelming experience to say the least, but we were fortunate to have Danielle by our side. She went above and beyond her responsibilities and we feel that she’s our first friend in San Diego. Not only did she help us find and purchase our beautiful home, but helped with my elderly father’s home and really made our transition to San Diego area so much smoother. We could feel her genuine care and interest in every step of the process, even as she displayed impeccable professionalism, knowledge and expertise.”
“We couldn’t be happier with Danielle. She worked with us on and off for over a year. She found us our home and worked tirelessly to ensure we were happy with the price and condition of the home. We love our home and highly recommend Danielle to anyone.”
“My family and I worked with Danielle for a year in our quest to find our dream home. She went above and beyond and become more than a realtor but a true friend to us all. She answered every question day and night and worked extremely hard to make sure we were happy. We have bought and sold many homes over the years and Danielle’s care and honesty something hard to find. We will use her again and have already recommended her to friends and family! Thank you Danielle”
“Danielle helped us sell our home in San Diego when we had to move coasts earlier this year. She was amazing. Her knowledge and attention to detail helped so much. Danielle helped with every stage of the process, giving our family peace of mind and the ability to settle into our new life without worrying about our home. Danielle is a professional we would recommend to anyone looking for an outstanding agent. She is truly 5 star!!”
“Our home hit the market the first week of December, and we had multiple offers in the first week. The house sold above list price in a seamless transaction. Again, we credit Danielle for educating us every step of the way, ensuring we had professional photographs including a 3D tour, and being available 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns throughout the transaction.”
“We are indebted to Danielle for how well we’ve been able to settle down in this new area. I highly recommend Danielle to any family looking for help with home buying/selling in this area.”
“Danielle Negroni was my agent to sell my home in a difficult market place. She went above and beyond for me to get my home sold. She is extremely knowledgeable and her lawyer background comes in handy with her negotiating skills and her explanations to me with all the forms and steps one goes through in selling a home.
She then turns around and finds me the perfect home to buy in Del Mar. The purchase process was so easy, thanks to Danielle who walked me through the whole process and always looked out for my best interest.”
“I came out to San Diego on an initial house hunting trip without knowing a local real estate agent. I met Danielle at an Open House and we immediately had a great rapport. She’s intelligent and knowledgeable without being aggressive and pushy. After our initial meeting, I was convinced she was the right agent to help me find a home. The next day Danielle spent an afternoon showing me houses and also educating me on the different enclaves of 92130. She did so willingly even though my potential move is not for another few months. Danielle toured me around neighborhoods, schools, and she discussed the pros and cons of each neighborhood. Danielle also introduced me to a mortgage broker so I can insure all my financials are in place. I intend to return to San Diego in the New Year to solidify a purchase now that I am familiar with the neighborhoods. I receive new listings and price modifications daily so when the time is right to act I will be all set to go. I highly recommend Danielle even if you are in just your initial stages of house hunting. She treats you as a priority. She’s professional, timely, engaging and super knowledgable about San Diego.”
“Danielle was wonderful to work with. She is extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the Carmel Valley market (our focus) and real estate ins and outs in general. She went above and beyond, even providing advice and her professional expertise in the termination of our rental lease, in which she was not involved. Will recommend her for any potential buyer or seller.”
“No one is going to work harder for you than Danielle! She knows the market, gives great tips on location and things to look for. Danielle is excellent in negotiations. She’s a true professional with the highest integrity. I would recommend her to anyone either buying or selling a house.”
“Danielle is simply the best realtor around! She went above and beyond for us with the sale of our home. She managed from start to finish the entire process of our home renovation which was instrumental in our home’s sale for the price we were hoping to get. She is knowledgeable about the market and knows what needs to be done to get your house sold! She is very dependable, has great attention to detail and she is honest. We would work with her again and HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in San Diego.”
“We got VERY lucky when we found Danielle. Our experience with her was stellar – I have already recommended her to those I know, happy to recommend her on Zillow!
We moved from the Midwest, and were using a realtor through our relocation company. This realtor had almost zero local knowledge (even though she lived there), was sending us properties DAYS after they hit the market (in a very competitive market), and couldn’t seem to grasp what we wanted. The only sense of urgency she displayed was trying to get us to outbid another party.
Actually found Danielle through Zillow – she know EVERY neighborhood, all the school boundaries, and the remodeling options of practically every house on the market. MOST importantly, she knew the pocket or “whisper” listings, and could show us homes about to hit the market. Which she did, and found us the one we bought.
We have been very happy with this house, I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone moving from out of state – this is the kind of local knowledge you need!”
“Danielle sold our home in Carmel Valley with utmost professionalism; gave us great advice and got our price in a timely fashion. We won’t hesitate to work with her again.”
“Danielle helped us sell our home in a very difficult market. She was professional, honest, and hard working. As someone who knew the market, and knew how to negotiate, we felt very comfortable following her lead. She made a difficult process easier. We trusted her advice and would recommend Danielle to anyone looking for an agent who will understand their needs, anxieties, and budget. You could very well come away with a new great friend as well.”
“As a first time home buyer, it was important for us to work with an agent who is professional, knowledgeable and honest. Danielle’s professionalism and integrity showed through immediately. We worked with Danielle over a few month period and she familiarized us with the San Diego market. Danielle really spent the time educating us about the different neighborhoods in San Diego County so we could make an informed decision about where to purchase a home based upon our family’s needs and not just a quick sale. She really worked above and beyond. We couldn’t be any happier with Danielle’s services and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”
“Danielle is a true professional and extremely knowledgable about Carmel Valley and Coastal North County. She is very responsive, dependable and trustworthy and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend using Danielle if you are looking for a home or selling your house.”
“I found Danielle’s contact information on the Internet and asked her to help my 73 year old mother find a place to live in the Escondido area. She responded immediately on a weekend and was knowledgeable and professional. She worked with my mom tirelessly trying to find my mom the best solution after listening to my mom’s situation.
“Danielle was great and worked very hard to find us a home in the current market of low inventory. She showed us homes even before they were listed on the MLS. She has a ton of patience as we often had to bring our young children with us to view the properties. She worked above and beyond our expectations and she referred us to a great lender as well. It can be difficult getting pre-approved when you are self-employed so having a strong network is important. Also, because we are re-locating to San Diego, it was so helpful to learn from Danielle how to enroll our kids in school, where our girls could take dance lessons and how to sign up for the local soccer program. I don’t believe we would have had such great success with another realtor. I would hire Danielle again in a second!”
I was so impressed and relieved knowing that Danielle was looking out for her client’s best interest. As a Real Estate Broker for many years myself, I know how very difficult it is to find an agent that cares for her client’s interests as Danielle does.
She is a rare find and I would recommend her again and again. Five Stars *****”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Danielle on many occasions since 2013, not as her client, but as the provider of Escrow Services working together with she and her clients to close their transactions. We just closed two transactions together this week. Danielle is an excellent agent, who strongly represents her clients. She is extremely well educated in her trade; she has full understanding of the legalities and time frames within the contracts and documents necessary when purchasing a home in California. She is honest, and a person of great integrity. Her client’s best interest is always her first priority. She is highly knowledgeable of the San Diego market, and is a consummate professional. You will be in great hands with Danielle representing you when making one of the most important purchases in your lifetime!!”
“Read this review if you are looking for a premier San Diego real estate agent. Danielle is a knowledgeable, honest, hard working comprehensive real estate agent who will help you buy or sell a home in San Diego. She is amazing at her job and her wealth of knowledge about the different neighborhoods, schools, referrals, activities, etc. reflects like wikipedia. Danielle recently sold a Del Mar beach property for me and got over $1,000 sq. ft, and I have worked with her for years assisting my vacation property rentals. I am currently engaged with Danielle to purchase another residence in San Diego. She has lived in the community for over 20 years and has an amazing network of contacts. Her personal friendships and clientele often allow me to get a first look on a home before the seller lists on the MLS. This is a huge advantage to me as a buyer especially when there is low inventory. My experience with other agents has led me to appreciate Danielle’s work ethic, timeliness, professionalism and I am confident she will work just as hard to represent a first time client as she does for repeat business.”
