I would like to express my sincere thanks for serving our families needs during a trying time selling our parents property. We brought three realtors in for market analysis and in as much a short interview. The market analysis had similar projected selling prices, but the presentation of analysis, courtesy of dealing with our family, knowledge of property, and availability of Dan himself made it an easy choice over the two other personally owned agencies. He was our top choice and worked very hard from my demanding short timeframe listing date to dealing with a very unprofessional buyers agent. Dan showed great respect for our property, our demands, and our family all together. Dan made a difficult time easier for me.
Thank Pleasant View Realty staff and Dan for a great job. -Craig
Whenever I would call Dan on the weekend or in the evening, he always got back to me quickly. We will definitely work with him again in the future! -Teo
Dan was an excellent realtor to work with. He was professional, educated, honest, and prepared throughout the entire process, very easy to communicate and work with. Most highly recommend Dan Carran! -Michelle
“We were first-time home sellers and had virtually no experience in the process of selling a home. I contacted Pleasant View Realty and was connected to Dan Carran. Dan explained the basic home selling processes and procedures, including determining a value, putting the home on the market, and creating a timeline to closing. We scheduled a time for Dan to come to our home for further discussion. We signed with Dan the following day. We found Dan to be very friendly and on time for all meetings. He is very knowledgeable and experienced at selling real estate. Dan determined a value for our home, scheduled a photoshoot, and prepared a professional-grade listing. Our home went on the market on a Tuesday, we had an open house that Thursday, and received an outstanding offer within 7 days. Dan guided us through the entire process, took our phone calls with many questions in the evenings and on the weekend. We were very happy with the work Dan did for us and would recommend Dan as an agent to anyone looking to sell their home. Thank you to Dan and Pleasant View Realty for a job well done.” ~Wayne
“We used Dan Carran when we sold our home in New Holstein this year. Dan spent a lot of time answering our questions. Dan went over and beyond helping us. When we saw our listing on the website it looked great. Thank you for everything Dan!!” ~Kari
“My experience working with Dan has been great! He knows his buyers needs and listens well to what specifics we were looking for. I was impressed over his simplicity in letting us tour the homes and always made it a point to show interest in our direction and candor when explaining the potential problems of certain properties without sounding bias. He definitely made our shopping experience so easy especially during a highly competitive market. Thanks again, Dan!”
