Dan Brassil sold our house in 31 days and for pretty much the price we wanted!
We knew that selling our house would be a challenge as it was an older home and was on a busy street. Our house was too large for a single couple and we thought that a family with children would be reluctant of the location and indeed many were. We sought out a Realtor with creative marketing ideas that somewhat specialized in older homes with a lot of character. We found Dan on Angie’s list and the reviews could not have been better.
Dan and his crew at Circa are not your run of the mill list it on MLS and depend on your group of friends to help sell the house Realtors. They truly did have a creative marketing plan. Our house even had its own web site! The amount of pictures that they took and posted on line along with the full color brochures complete with floor plan was like nothing I have ever seen before. Their work is incredible. They even placed little placards on stands throughout the house highlighting special features of the house and neighborhood. The walk through appeal of the house on open house day was amazing, we were even impressed at how good our own home looked. Another special touch was the letter from us to the potential buyers where we got to gush about all of the love and good times that dwelt within the walls of that house. It really helped us with the transition and with turning the page on that part of our lives and was an unexpected personal touch for the Buyers. I feel like that letter forever connects us with that house
Dan was completely professional and supportive all along the way. We really felt that he was in control and knew what he was doing and that he was doing all that he could be doing. He was very assuring and calm when we began to get discouraged from some of the feedback. It seemed that he never had any doubt that he could sell the house.
So if you dont care and want to just use whatever realtor your Brother’s Neighbor’s Cousin used that’s fine, you get what you get. But if you are reading this because you are doing research and looking for the best Realtor that you can find. Dan Brassil is your Man.
We engaged Dan Brassil in the spring of 2013 to list our home for sale and subsequently represent us in purchasing our next home in St. Louis. After speaking with other agents, we were excited to partner with Dan, as we were extremely confident in his ability to market our property and get is sold fast. Dan delivered excellent service and was easy to communicate with throughout the selling and buying process. He was always available and attentive to our questions and concerns. Dan is a consummate real estate professional who demonstrates a great passion for his business, and was a pleasure to work with. We recommend Dan as a professional realtor without hesitation to anyone looking to buy or sell property!
To sum up Dan Brassil… too good. Always available… works with pesky clients like me who are overly picky and have hectic, no notice schedules… He will tell you how things are as he sees them, and has a good balance of pushing the seller without offending them. Friendly, exceptionally knowledgeable of the St. Louis area (especially south city) and helpful in my first home buying venture. He had scheduled a vacation that happened to come up while in the closing process and though he was in the middle of nowhere, he still found time for regular updates. The man is almost too dedicated, and it was greatly appreciated. As my new neighbors have put it, I “got the nicest house in the neighborhood for under the average value.”
Dan is a fantastic agent. He puts his clients first and will stop at nothing to make sure they are satisfied. He was a absolute joy to work with, and made buying my home as easy as can be. I bought a foreclosure through Fannie Mae with Dan, and we had some serious obstacles, but Dan was always there with answers and helpful advice. He fought the good fight for me and i ended up being an extremely satisfied new homeowner. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an outstanding agent.
After unsuccessfully working with two previous realtors, I felt frustrated that my home had not sold. A friend recommended that I speak with Dan. I was impressed with his real estate marketing plan and offered him the opportunity to sell my home.
Within one day of being on the market, my home was under contract and sold two months later. This relieved my worries about being able to have access my potential monies for a new home.
Regarding the purchase of a new home, Dan provided recent updates on new listings for me through e-mail. After showing 40 plus houses, I finally found the home I had been searching for and Dan was able to negotiate a great price for me.
I would recommend Dan to anyone selling or purchasing a home.
Dan took a personal interest in my needs as a potential home buyer. Although he wouldn’t say it, he went beyond his responsibility as an agent to make sure that I had all the information he could find on the several properties I was interested in. Personalized care is what you’ll get.
Dan is not your “typical” realtor. He worked exceptionally hard for us on the sale of our property and truly proved his worth. His organization utilizes the newest technologies for document signing and transmission. They are current with the digital age and make your real estate process super easy. There was no need to have sit downs for simple updates and document signings. This saved us a ton of time! I will use Dan again in the future.
Dan helped us find and purchase our new home. I would strongly recommend Dan to anybody purchasing a home! He was able to make a complex financial decision far easier than I expected. Dan’s insight, attention to detail, accessibility, flexibility and sound advice exceeded my expectations. His good counsel was most evident during negotiations on a house that ultimately fell apart. While many agents might be tempted to “push” a deal through, Dan provided sound counsel during tough negotiations. Ultimately, the decision was ours and we walked away. That experience made me even more confident to have him representing us. We found a great home and Dan was a big part of making it happen!
Always on top of the situation, always available, and always with the correct suggestion as to what to do.
Dan’s marketing gets the attention of buyers, going from 1 showing a month when FSO (with a very concerted marketing push) to 10+ in the first month of listing with him.
Our house sold within 99% of asking price, and was under contract within 40 days of listing with Dan.
He earned our trust, and was extraordinary to work with.
I would strongly recommend Dan to anyone purchasing a home in St. Louis. He is knowledgeable about the market and made us feel comfortable with our final decision. Buying a home is overwhelming and it is important to have someone you trust guiding the process. I had met several Realtors in the early weeks of our search and Dan was the first Realtor who took the time to understand our needs as buyers. His attention to detail, candor, and his willingness to go beyond the call of duty, made us 100% confident with our purchase. ”
We were looking for an investment home in the South St. Louis city area. During the course of working with Dan, both my investment partner and I were quite impressed with Dan’s knowledge on the neighborhood and the properties. He always came prepared, with printouts of the listings we were going to see. The property we were interested was from the HUD which requires a lot of extra paper work from the realtor. He had never complained and had always met HUD’s demanding deadlines. Dan is also very professional and possesses strong work ethic. He is one of those realtors who will go the extra mile for his clients. Great job, Dan!
Dan worked around the clock to help us find the right house! He was very knowledgeable, sent us numerous recommendations, and responded to our calls and emails instantaneously. It seemed like he was always willing to stop on a dime to change his plans if we needed to see a house the day it came on the market. He is a great guy who took really great care of us, and I would recommend him to anyone in South City.
We worked with Dan this summer when moving from out of state. He is a St. Louis enthusiast who knows the city very well, and had a good sense of what properties and locations would be appealing to us. He took the time to show us many architecturally interesting houses in vibrant, interesting neighborhoods throughout the city. Furthermore, he was quite capable of walking us through the home-buying process for the first time. We are in love with our house and St. Louis, and are grateful for Dan’s help in bringing us here.
Dan did a great job at helping us find a house we now call our home. We really appreciate the insight Dan had about various different aspect of owning a home that we had not considered, as this was our first home. Dan was also great at responding to any and all of our questions, and knowing where to find the answers if he did not already know. The other thing we loved about using Dan was that it was very easy to get in contact with him and he was very quick at responding to our questions no matter when we sent them.
Dan has made the buying process extremely easy and painless. I know and passed up many friends and acquaintances that are also Realtors because of the experience a family member had when he used Dan to sell his property. His professionalism and knowledge help put my worries to rest and gave me the confidence I needed when making these huge life decisions. Being a first time home buyer, you need someone like Dan on your side. Dan is truly passionate about his job and truly cares about his clients.
My family recently relocated away from St. Louis, and we were nervous about selling our house in the current housing market. We chose Dan as our selling agent due to his familiarity with Saint Louis City, especially the Tower Grove Park area, and he came highly recommended from friends of ours who had recently sold their house very quickly with Dan. And our experience with Dan exceeded our expectations. He was fantastic, friendly, knowledgeable, and an incredible hard worker (especially when it came to getting our property ready for listing). We received an offer on our house after one day of showings, and it was above list price! We were thrilled, and we know that this was largely due to the energy and dedication that Dan put into working with us to sell our house. We would recommend Dan without reservation for anyone buying or selling in the South City neighborhoods of St. Louis.
If you are looking for great dedication, quick responses, someone to help you step by step when choosing a home to buy – Dan is your man. His knowledge about what to look for in especially older homes in the city is extensive and you can absolutely count on his honesty when it comes to questions or concerns — if he can’t answer your question fully to your satisfaction he will ask one of the many experts he knows that can. He was a joy to work with and has the patience of a saint. I can’t recommend him more to anyone looking to buy or sell in the St. Louis area!
