Danella did a great job handling the purchase of our new home.

Got us to closing much sooner than we expected. Would recommend her services and experience very highly. We were able to get all questions through the entire process answered quickly and was very happy the way Danella represented both the buyer and seller in a professional manner.

Working with Danella is a worry-free experience.

She is always detail orientated and on top of everything. She has a wealth of knowledge, she kept me well informed about property listings, provided detailed information on listings and was always available for a showing. She handled everything from an organized purchase contract, the listing agent and the lender. I could not have bought my home with the ease that I did without Danella representing me.

Dave was VERY patient with us!

He was helpful with choosing a mortgage rep as well as an inspector. He knew what we were looking for and didn't pressure us to look at things that wouldn't work. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dave or to work with him again.

After 1 1/2 years searching for a house I called Dave for some fresh new help.

Just 6 weeks after meeting Dave I was LIVING in the house I had been looking for the entire time. The house I have went on the market at 12 noon, by 4pm we had seen the home, made a offer and the sellers had accepted my offer. What great service and quick response!

Ken & Linda

We really had a great experience working with Danella.

We purchased a home that was in foreclosure and Danella was very knowledgeable and really helped us get through a difficult process. She demonstrated honesty and integrity throughout the process. Danella also sold our old home for a great price in a timely manner in what was a very difficult market. She was the consummate professional, responding quickly to our calls and answering all of our questions. I would highly recommend that anyone looking to buy and/or sell a home should work with Danella Swanson.

Jennifer & Mark D.

My husband and I feel so fortunate to have met Danella and to have had her help us with the purchase of our home just over three years ago.

She is upbeat, positive and very knowledgeable. When we met Danella we had been searching online for potential homes but were not finding anything that really "hit us" as the one for us but when we started working with Danella things became a lot easier for us due to her expertise. She made the process of finding a new home more enjoyable...we looked forward to the emails she would send us with new listings that she found that matched our "want/need" lists. When we saw the house that we eventually bought, it was listed on a Wednesday and she lined it up right away for us to see it (first ones to see it) and even though it needed some work she pointed out the many positive aspects of it and different ways we could make it our own...well, we went home and after a little discussion we called her back and told her we wanted it...that same night she had filled out the paperwork and faxed it over to the Friday afternoon, after a few back and forth negotiations she called and told us that we "GOT THE HOUSE!" I am confident that we got the house due to Danella's expertise and quick responses. To this day she has remained a family friend and if we ever decide to move again, I would not hesitate to have her help us again, in addition I also recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell because you can tell that she loves what she does and she is awesome at it...Thanks again Danella.

Allison & Nate K.

My husband and I bought our first house and had the pleasure of working with Danella.

With this being our first time she was very informational and made sure to inform us every step of the way. We were in good hands throughout the whole experience. She has also stayed in contact with us via phone call and has even stopped by our house a couple times. She is very personable and truly cares about her clients. I would highly recommend her as your realtor.

Megan & Cory H.

Danella was exceptional as a real estate agent, she took time to respond to every question and research the best possible fit.

She was professional, considerate and thorough. As a first time home buyer in a competitive market, I am very fortunate to have been referred to Danella. It was with her assistance I was able to find just the right home.

Rosie H.

Danella was very cooperative and responsive to my emails and text messages.

She dealt with the lending organizations very efficiently, in fact my loan officer commented on how thorough, friendly and detail oriented Danella is. Would I use Danella again...absolutely!

Barbara W.

Was given best advice when offering a counter price.

It worked!

Richard B.

We wouldn't even consider anyone else if we still lived in the area and had another home to sell.

Diane & Jerry H.

Danella spent many hours and put on many miles showing us houses until she found us just the right house in just the right location that we wanted to live.

Even when my husband and I could not agree on what we wanted in a house, she persevered and kept showing us more houses until we finally did agree on the one we purchased. She became not only a realtor but our friend and if we ever decide to relocate, we will not hesitate to call her. Thank you Danella for all your time and effort to satisfy our needs.

Lana & Tom T.

Thanks again Danella, you were GREAT!!!

Bob & Carol R.

I worked with Danella to purchase my townhouse.

I was new to Minnesota and had no experience with home values or neighborhoods in Minneapolis. Danella spent time asking me what I was looking for and then provided me with multiple options that fit. She listened to me and answered my questions in a way that I could understand. She was very good with negotiating, and I got the perfect place at the perfect price!
