Thinking of Buying or Selling
Let's Explore Tucson
Hello! I’m Dan
Tucson Real Estate Agent
Living in Tucson has given me a great knowledge of this fantastic city and everything that it has to offer. I will put my extensive knowledge of Tucson to work for you. My clients deserve the full-service and attention that I can provide. I recognize and value the trust my clients place in me and I strive every day to exceed their expectations.
I pride myself on putting my clients first.
I entered Real Estate later in life, I was 52. I had had a long career in law enforcement and investigations, winding up with ten years in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) as an Inspector.
In 2016, I was injured, and this led to massive internal organ failure and ultimately to a double transplant (Liver and Kidneys) in January of 2018. I was on my deathbed in May of 2018, receiving the “Last Rites” twice! I was forced to medically retire and after surviving, I did not know what to do with myself, so I turned to my lifelong passion, real estate.
Being a married, stepfather of two, man meant that I still needed to provide a living and support for my family. While we could scrape by on my pension, I knew they deserved more from me, so I bore down, went to school and passed my state and nationwide exam to become a Realtor!
The Government trusted me (I still have a TOP SECRET clearance), as I have always been honest, and live life with integrity. I follow a code of ethics in my personal life that mirrors the code of ethics of the National Association of Realtors. I will execute my fiduciary duty to my clients, to the best of my ability, always striving to keep their needs and best interests foremost in any transactions.
People aren’t one size fits all and neither are their dream homes.
I work for the biggest and best real estate company in the United States, Coldwell Banker. We also have an international presence that is second to none. We have the power to pull buyers from around the globe to buy your home, with our massive global advertising.
We reach 6 continents (not in Antarctica yet!), and 195 countries. And the way the world is today, there is a very good chance your future home buyer will be from out of state or even another country!
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Should I Work With A Real Estate Agent?
A knowledgeable real estate expert will help you prepare the best deal and avoid delays or costly mistakes. But they offer much more than just the information on the property. An agent can provide local community information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more depending on what your needs and wants are. They can also be able to provide objective information about each property and insight to how the neighborhood can change over time.
Can You Help Me Find a Mortgage Agent?
I can help you get in touch with a knowledgable mortgage agent to gain access to the best Tucson mortgage rates. The advantage of using a local agent is two-fold: you can meet with the mortgage agent in-person and discuss your needs, and the agent will compare the best mortgage rates offered by banks and lenders (some you may not have heard of) across Tucson.
What Kind Of Neighborhood Amenities Help My Property Value?
A good location can mean different things to different people, of course, but there are also objective factors that determine a home’s value. Depending on your personal needs and preferences, you may not be able to buy a home with all of these factors. And that’s OK—after all, a home is much more than just an investment. However, next time you’re shopping for a new property, keep the following factors in mind.
What Areas in Tucson Can You Help Me With?

If you are thinking about a move in Tucson, let’s set up a call and make sure you consider all angles.
Why Do I Need A Home Inspection?
Your first clue that a home inspection is important is that it can be used as a contingency in your contract with the seller. Home inspections are used to provide an opportunity for a buyer to identify any major issues prior to closing. It will evaluate and determine the present condition of the home’s major systems and components from a performance perspective versus a cosmetic, code or design issues.
Do I Need To Renovate Before I Sell?
Take a look at the houses for sale in your area. … If you do decide to go ahead and renovate to sell, take the time to work out who your ideal buyer is before you go spending any money. You might think it doesn’t matter and any buyer will do, but it can make a difference to what you end up changing or renovating.
Let’s look at your home together.
The University of Arizona
The University of Arizona (Arizona, U of A, or UA) is a public research university in Tucson, Arizona. It was founded in 1885, the UA was the first university in the Arizona Territory.
Roy Place, a prominent Tucson architect, designed many of the early buildings, including the Arizona State Museum buildings (one of them the 1927 main library) and Centennial Hall. Place’s use of red brick set the tone for the red brick facades that are a basic part of nearly all UA buildings: almost every UA building has red brick as a major component of the design, or at the very least, a stylistic accent to harmonize it with the other campus buildings.
