Jack, Ella & Charlotte U. (Buyer Client)

Dear Dan,
   Thank you so very much for helping our mommy find the perfect home. She also told us that you put her in touch with all the different people who made our home even more beautiful! We absolutely LOVE IT! Mommy says she can't wait until it's totally finished so she can have a lot of Shabbat guests and maybe even a big housewarming party (if Daddy is on board :) ).
We'll always be in touch and please know you are welcome in our home ANYTIME, DAY OR NIGHT!

Dear Dan,
I am writing you this letter of recommendation; please feel free to share it with your future clients and encourage them to contact us for more information in needed.
Our experience with Dan was buying an investment property in Scottsdale in early 2010.
Due to the housing situation, the low prices became attractive and we decided to invest some of our saving in a real estate property.
We started our search with another real estate agent (a very nice lady, but she viewed her role as limited to providing us with listings and showing the houses). After some time with her, we realized that we need help with the decision what house we need to select.
We approached Dan, share with him our situation and asked for his help. Dan was very professional and asked us to first notify the other agent that we decided to shop working with her, and only then to start our search with him.
What I liked about Dan is that he was sharing with us his experience in the field and never hesitated to give us his open and honest opinion about the houses that we saw and their specific location. His practical attitude and straight forward answers were very helpful. Dan quickly understood our preferences and priorities about the investment and our plans for on-going management of our property. 
All together, the experience that we had with Dan was ver positive. In several areas, Dan exceeded my expectations in proactive actions that he took.
I highly recommend Dan as a real estate agent. In our case it was a very good fit for our needs and we appreciated the help, advice and opinion that Dan provided.
After the contract was signed and we started preparing the house for rental (it was a foreclosure), Dan called us several times to check if we needed any help or information and to follow-up on the process.
We think very highly about Dan as a realtor and will be happy to recommend him to others.

We consider you our friend. And you will be our realtor for all future real estate needs.

To Whom It May Concern,
   It is with great pleasure to write this letter of appreciation and praise on behalf of Dan Gonen regarding the recent sale of our home.
   The housing market had slowed prior to our desire to sell our home. While we were concerned about selling our home, Dan provided us with the confidence that we would be able to sell our home is marketed well and priced correctly. During the entire process Dan sustained and provided his knowledgeable pricing and first class marketing strategy. There is not a doubt that Dan's meticulous research and real estate savvy was a critical factor in the fact that our house was sold in one week for 1/2% below asking price in a market that homes are taking months to sell at large discounts off asking price.
   In summary, Dan represents commitment and dedication to his clients by being highly ethical and direct in his negotiations, his hard work for his client, and by providing consistent and accurate communication in a timely matter. We are confident that other families will feel as privileged as we do to have worked with such a professional as Dan Gonen.

   Dan helped us sell our prior house and buy our new home. He is extremely hard working and very in touch with the real estate market. Dan is a terrific negotiator and helped us get great prices on our sale and our purchase. Dan also proved himself to be a wealth of knowledge with countless tips, resources and contacts, making the transition to our new home very easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend his services to any home buyer or seller.

To whom it may concern:
Dan Gonen is the greatest! If you want an agent that gives you 100%, we recommend Dan Gonen.
We have bought nine homes, including two vacation homes, and we have sold eight homes - Mr. Gonen is the most efficient agent we have ever dealt with. He sent us photos and details of all houses, in our price range, by email and he gave us 100% of him time when we were out looking at houses. After we decided on a house, he took care of all the details in purchasing our house, and during this time, he had to go to Israel on family business and he even called us from Israel to see how things were progressing. After we moved into our house he was able to provide phone numbers for all utilities and for workmen to get our house in shape. He also gave us infomratoin on shopping, social activities, and cultural events in our area. We have been in our house, in Scottsdale, over two months and he still calls to see if we need anything.
If yhou want attention to every detail, we recommend Dan Gonen for your real estate transactions. He is a Realtor Professional.

Dear Dan,
Recent conversations we had with friends who shared with us their unpleasant home shopping experience prompted my need to write this letter to you. 
I thought that it would be appropriate to take the time and thank you for the wonderful job you did in helping us find our new home that we enjoy so much. I realize how picky and demanding we are, and can only applaud you for you perserverance and dedication as we kept on looking at new areas to explore and more homes to visit. I know that it was not easy for you; however, you took the time to truly understand our needs and wishes, and look for homes that were a close match. I was astonished when you discovered this wonderful neighborhood, that is so secluded and tucked away you hardly know it exists...When we finally found the house we liked, we admired your negotiating skills and knowledge of what are the appropriate steps we needed to take, that both guaranteed that we will get the house we wanted, while protecting us from unnecessary participation in the price wars that were so prevalent at the time.
Dan, I know that this letter is long over due, but I felt compelled to thank you for all your help and tenacity. Rest assured that as we have done in the past, we will always recommend your services!
Best wishes for your continued success!
Dori F. and Trayci K.

Dear Dan: 
I have specialized in the field of all types of mortgage loans for more than the last 30 years and I have successfully funded more than 6000 loans. The loans have ranged from straightforward to very complex.
I have worked with you for almost thirteen (13) years and our success rate in your procuring the real estate and my funding the loan has been 100%. I know that you are a true professional in the manner in which you search and negotiate the purchase or sale on behalf of your client.
You have you client's best interest in either the purchase or sale as your main priority. I have never recommended another Realtor to anyone in the Phoenix and surrounding areas other than yourself and every referral has personally thanked me for sending them to you.
I have enjoyed working with you and I look forward to many more years of satisfying your client's needs with the best possible loan to match their financial requirements.
I wish you all the success in your profession, as it is well deserved.
Yours truly,
American Discount Mortgage, Inc.

Since Dan Gonen with RE/MAX Excalibur and I have been working together for more than 8 years, I can say with full confidence that he is a skilled and knowledgeable real estate agent.
As Dan's escrow officer I have experienced first hand his attention to detail and his constant interest in his client' needs. He has followed through with some of the toughest transactions and still maintained the highest level of professionalism. He works hard to not only get the job done, but to get the job done right.
Our business relationship has been built on loyalty and hard work. I know that Dan always works hard for his client and in turn his clients are completely satisfied with his ability as a Realtor.

Joe D. (Buyer Client)

I have worked with a lot of agents (7 home purchases/6 sales), and can tell you that Dan ranks at the very top. His area of expertise, but not limited to, is North Phoenix/Scottsdale/Cave Creek and East into Fountain Hills.  This is a particularly good focus for GMI folks as our office is located on N. Scottsdale Road.
I have found that most agents are pretty good at searching/finding homes due to the various resources available; however, capabilities and depth of knowledge vary when negotiating the offer and through closing. In our recent experience, we had an issue where the previous owners ha removed several items from the home that were deemed permanent fixtures. Not only did Dan help us work through the issue, using the title company as leverage (withheld funds until fixtures were returned and reinstalled), but Dan counseled the selling agent on general and legal procedures until the issue was resolved.
His demeanor throughout the entire process was upbeat and optimistic. In addition he has great communication skills, checking in with me everyday, even after we closed and had moved in. His #1 focus is customer satisfaction.
Honestly, I cannot say enough good things about how he handled our transaction. I highly recommend him and suggest that you add him to your list of agents in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for all your help in making my relocation as smooth as possible,
Joe D. 

Daniel F. (Buyer Client)

March 1, 2003
I would like to take this opportunity to extend a special thank to Dan Gonen for his outstanding achievement in assisting my family and I with our relocation from out of state.
My wife and I were skeptical in regards to dealing with a realtor, especially one from out of state. We contacted many realtors. It became apparent to us immediately that Dan's overall performance was head and shoulders above the rest.
We scheduled a house-hunting trip. Dan paid careful attention to our search criteria. We spent time in the communities we were consider just driving around, observing many factors of location I hadn't considered. Dan spent considerable time viewing properties on his own, narrowing the field per say, prior to informing us. His ability to listen and his knowledge of real estate allowed him to do this, which amounted to large timesavings for us.
Dan went to bat for us negotiating a very reasonable contract with the seller. Even after closing the deal, Dan asked our permission to allow him to arrange to have the carpets cleaned, and he would cover the cost. He said he wasn't comfortable with our one-year-old son crawling on the floor, knowing the seller had an indoor cat. I remember on several occasions my wife and I looking at each other in disbelief, discussing what Dan had done for us, and how easy and comfortable he has made it.
Even to this day, Dan continues to stay in contact with us. He sends various homeowner type articles, calendars, and occasionally movie tickets. I contact him occasionally with a question. If I can't reach him, he always responds quickly.
I cannot say my view on realtors in general has changed any. But as far as Dan is concerned, my wife and I are sold. We will utilize his talent in the future. We have recommended him in the past and have no reservations to continue to do so. All I can say is, "Dan is the man".

To Whom It May Concern:
For the past two years, I have had the good fortune of having made the acquaintance of Dan Gonen.
He made my house buying experience easy, accurate and honest. Dan also gave me fine introductions including banking and manufacturing. These inspired me to open the new Cigar King Arizona-Retail and Internet distribution center here at the Scottsdale Airpark.
Please feel free to call me at work or on my cell any time.

Rue S. (Buyer Client)

Dear Dan,
I apologize for taking so long to get this letter to you. I want to thank you for all your help in finding my home in Fountain Hills, which I love.
As you know, this was the first time I have ever bought property on my own, and it was an almost overwhelming prospect. You made the entire process much easier and less frightening than I had even hoped for. You are so knowledgeable about real estate, both in general and specifically here, that you gave me confidence that I was making good decisions-and you stopped me when I could have made bad ones! You made efforts on my behalf far beyond any agent I have ever heard of, and without your help, patience and support I'm not sure I could have made such a huge change in my life as moving to a new state where I knew no one. In addition, your thoughtful and caring gestures have made me feel welcomed.
I have told all my friends about what a wonderful job you did for me, and about your ongoing concern that I be happy in my new home. Some of them are thinking of moving here, too, and you can be sure they will come to you for help in making the move. I can't thank you enough for guiding me through the whole process, from searching for just the right house to arranging the financing.

Dear Dan,
As a Phoenix area business owner for more than 15 years, I know the value of referrals. I would rather do business with someone who is recommended by others, than just pick a service out of the yellow pages! This letter is to serve as a recommendation and a referral to those seeking to find and choose an excellent realtor......YOU!
I am very happy in my new home. But it is far more than the house. The things you did as a professional,  from day one, made this move easy and successful. Dan, you brought to my attention during the "looking" and then the "offer" and through to the actual move itself, things that I never would have thought to ask about. These are some of the things you did for me:
  •  You had access to a reputable, aggressive mortgage broker who got me a very good rate.
  • You coached me in negotiating a better price for the property.
  • You prompted me on items to negotiate with the seller, such as including appliances, which saved me at least $1,000.
  • Your referrals to trustworthy professionals for items as simple as changing the locks (a locksmith).....anything that came up, you said "I have someone who can help you with that," and you did!
  • Your assistant tracked every detail of the transaction, and kept me posted every step of the way....I did not have to wonder about what was happening.
  • This may surprise some people........you discouraged me from making an offer on a home I liked! And then you gave me the reasons that would negatively affect the resale value of that particular property. Another realtor could have written up the offer, had the sale, and moved on to another customer.
  • You helped me celebrate my new home by sending out postcards to my friends and family with my change of address, and a great picture of my new home, and Me!
I love you, Dan! You are a true professional. I am happy to speak to anyone considering choosing you as his or her realtor.
Your customer and friend,
Linda B.

To Whom It May Concern,
My wife and I recently purchased a home in Anthem, Arizona. We were assisted in that endeavor by Dan Gonen of RE/MAX Excalibur Realty in Scottsdale, Arizona. We found Dan to be very understanding of our needs and wishes toward the purchase of our home. He searched for, and took us to homes that met our needs and desires, and always remained within our price range. He never tried to feature a home that would have stretched beyond our budged. As we moved through the number of homes we reviewed, he always awaited our questions, rather than attempt to put fourth his opinion.
Once we made this very important decision on the home we wanted to buy, Dan stepped to the plate and hit a home run. He assisted in the selection of a mortgage company that was easy to work with and successfully obtained the cost structure we needed.
Dan kept us advised of the progress as we moved toward closing. He also assisted us during the walk-through and the actual closing of the purchase. Since the closing and our moving into our new home, we have been pleased to have him call us to assure that everything is still going well for us. Needless to say, my wife and I were impressed with Dan's honestly and determination to stay with us through the closing of the deal and beyond.
We would recommend Dan to our family and friends. Give him the opportunity to serve you and you will find it to be a successful and pleasant experience.
Jacqueline and Dick C. 

David M. (Buyer Client)

July, 1994 
To Whom It May Concern:
When my wife and I decided to buy a home in Scottsdale, we had the great good fortune to be served by Dan Gonen. The restrictions we placed upon him as to location, size, amenities and price were highly demanding; as a result, we looked at well over thirty homes before making our decision.
During this entire experience we found that Mr. Gonen is (1) a complete professional; (2) scrupulously ethical and honest; (3) meticulous and punctual in the extreme and (4) dedicated to serving his customer's needs. Beyond that, he is unfailingly pleasant and consistently cool. During the five months which we were his clients we never once saw him exhibit even a trace of anger or impatience.
It is not surprising that the home we finally selected fit our needs so well, due in no small part to the efforts of our agent.
It is a pleasure for me to recommend enthusiastically the talents and skills of Dan Gonen.

He is the kind of person that provides someone the type of consulting services that are honest and thoughtful - he is a partner not just a real estate agent!

He is also a pleasure to work with, possessing of incredible patience and good-humor - great assets in difficult markets!"

Eyal L. (Buyer Client)

"I have used Dan's services multiple times for different properties purchases but it was at the last one for my own home that i found his true charachter and level of service to be above and beyond expectations. I found my self in a very unique and unfortunate situation where the seller of my house wanted to back out of the deal for unreasonable reasons. I was out of the country at that time and hadling it from a different time zone was extremly difficult. It was Dan who took initiative and ownership of our family's bad circumstances and contacted every aid source possible to help us get through this situation and bring it to a positive and Winning resolution when we closed on the house, according to our terms, at the end of a nerve wracking experience. I would not have been able to move into my new house without Dan's help, effort, ownership, dedication and professionalism."
