We were both first time buyers and are also expecting our first baby in May. Our buying knowledge and bank accounts were limited. However, the pressure to purchase the best home available for our family was insurmountable. Dan understood our situation and it was clear from the beginning that our best interest was his priority. It is through his market experience & negotiating expertise that we were able to find and purchase our family’s home. We could not be happier with the level of service that Dan provided us and would urge anyone looking to buy or sell their home to use him as his/her realtor!!
In my case, this was a short sale scenario, making the navigation of the process both complex and stressful. Dan and his team were masterful throughout. They both provided the traditional, aforementioned services, while carefully and thoughtfully working with the bank to successfully arrange for the short sale. Any concerns and risks were rapidly addressed, reduced and eliminated. And, to an individual, Dan and his team responsively and responsibly worked wtih all parties to ensure that the process continued to move forward far faster than I had anticipated and had researched. This is a remarkable individual and team. Truly the rare combination of professionalism and personal representation that all similar firms should aspire. Dan, ERA Tides Realty, and the entire legal and closing team that he works with merit my strongest recommendation and gratitude. -- Paul N.
His in-depth knowledge of the short sale process and sheer persistence in working with my lender drove the sale of my home. It was a pleasure doing business with Dan.
He is personal and professional. He is extremely knowledgable about real estate, especially in the Charleston area! I felt confident and comfortable buying our first home, with Dan always available to explain every step along the way. He made the process easy, taking care of every detail promptly and efficiently. We will work with Dan again when we sell our home and are looking for a new one.
He really takes pride in knowing the Charleston area and wanting to know excactly what we were looking for in a new home. He was very patient with us and kept us informed weekly on our short sale progress. We were new to the Charleston area and he was able to give us advice on everything from home inspections to great mortgage lenders in the area. As stressful as the home buying experience can be, I would do it all over again knowing that Dan Lorentz would be involved.
It was very helpful to have an extra set or two of eyes on both the house as well as the contract & financing paperwork. I would absolutely recommend Dan & Jen to a friend who is either looking to buy or sell! Thanks, Dave
Developed a firm grasp on what I was looking for quickly, found a number of properties that fit my parameters. Always responded quickly, and was able to make things happen quickly when I needed it. He recognized the perfect prospect when it became available and was able to make it happen for me. Couldn't be happier. Thanks Dan!
We worked with them to sell my dad's house in Folly Beach after he passed. Couldn't be happier with my decision to work with him. So professional, so knowledgeable and so helpful considering I live in NJ. Thanks so much for all of your help!!
He presented all facts and followed up on details in a very timely manner. Once a price was agreed upon, by both sides, his processing associates maintained the same integrity. Even after the purchase was complete, he assisted me with needed information to utilize warranties to have an A/C compressor replaced. It was a pleasure to have done business with him. I have recommended him to colleagues/friends and wish him much success.
He has a thorough knowledge of the Charleston marketplace and truly cares about his clients. He walked me through the entire process offering sound, professional advice and was available 24-hours a day to respond to my questions. When Dan told me his goal was to sell my house in three months I thought it would be nearly impossible, but thanks to his dedication, perseverance and savvy negotiating skills, he held true to his word and sold my home in record time. Dan went above and beyond in every aspect of the sale of my home and I recommend him to everyone I know. Thanks so much!
We recently relocated to Columbia, SC, but hope to have a vacation home in Charleston at some point. We will always use Dan for our real estate needs in the Charleston area!
Dan has made buying a home the BEST and easiest experience. He knew who and how to set everything from the mortgage broker to the inspector. Extremely efficient and budget aware. He goes above and beyond what I EVER expected from a realtor. He was promt on getting back to ANY question we had and made the WHOLE process a dream! My only regret is not doing this sooner!
He helped us buy a house in the Charleston/Folly Beach area. His knowledge of the area really helped us make our decision very easy. He was professional, had great follow up and was always very prompt. He and his support team got us to closing without any issues. If you are buying or selling your house Dan's the man!!!
He got my home sold which my previous agent could not. From the beginning I felt Dan was honest and fair. He had my best interest and constantly kept in contact. He helped me every step of the way! He goes above and beyond to get the deal done. I would recommend Dan to anyone looking for real estate needs.
Dan is extremely professional and very personable. Dan thoroughly understands the Charleston marketplace - the big picture as well as its nuisances. Within a short period he perceives the essence of buyer’s requirements and successfully roots out those homes that have a close match. Our purchase required perseverance and skillful negotiations. Dan carried the day where we thought we would not succeed. Dan’s after sales support is also noteworthy. We moved from the northeast and Dan was and continues to be a guiding friend with help in all matters concerning getting settled in our new home. No doubt that Dan will be a friend that we can turn to in the future.
