Dan began his real estate career in 1991 working from a small storefront office in Sparks, NV while tending bar in the evenings. In less than ten years, he advanced himself into an ownership position with the largest real estate firm in the region. Today he is narrowly focused on the individual needs of his clients. Dan attributes his success to a very simple philosophy: hard work, accountability and a commitment to keep his client’s best interest at heart.
Dan is a Reno native with a strong sense of community and extensive knowledge of the Northern Nevada area. His vast involvement in many hundreds, perhaps thousands, of real estate transactions provides a unique resource for his clients. Dan believes in a collaborative buying/selling experience with an emphasis on managing the process while ensuring his clients make well-informed decisions. He is a life-long learner with effective marketing and technology skills. Dan is known as a talented leader and educator amongst his peers and colleagues; as a Founding Partner of Nevada Home Connections he is able to put all of his abilities in play each day.
Dan is married to his business partner Valarie. Together they live in Reno with one remaining child at home. All three enjoy the many Nevada outdoor activities every chance they get, regardless of the season.
