What Home Sellers Are Saying
I have known Dan Thiewes and done business with him over the past 28 years. He has been the most reliable, knowledgeable, responsible, responsive, and trustworthy professional realtor that I have ever met. I have referred many people to him over the years and all of my friends and family members who have done business with him will say the same thing about his professionalism and outstanding work ethic. He has completed several real estate dealings, in terms of buying and selling, as well as renting and has always gone above and beyond expectations. He is very flexible, open minded, and knowledgeable; always on top of what is going on in the real estate market. He is a great listener: he pays attention to what his clients needs, wants, and expectations are and always acts accordingly. At the same time, he provides information and education to me and his other clients when it comes to making sound business decisions. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is hoping to have a knowledgeable, sharp, up to date realtor with high integrity and trustworthiness.
I’ve known Dan since 1992. He helped me buy my first house, helped me get a rental years later and helped me sell my most recent house in Jan 2016. Every purchase and sale is complicated, emotional, and stressful with both seasoned and new buyers and seller. Dan has always understood where we were at with a property, the process and helped us realize our goals. I was halfway across the US in the military and Dan helped me get contractors to ready my house for sale. I never doubted his word or the contractors he found for us. He always delivers and is the most patient, thorough and creative agent I’ve ever met in 25 years of buying and selling houses all over the US. I highly recommend to both the seasoned and first-time buyers–he delivers.
Bill and Leslie Poirier
Dan did several transactions (3 purchases and 3 sales in the last 18 years) for us and we couldn’t be happier with his expertise. We are talking about a professional who puts his heart and mind to provide his clients with an excellent experience. When you have Dan as your agent you feel like you have somebody who holds your hand during the entire process. Dan listens to his clients and has great advice how to get the job done quickly. We sold our last property in Brambleton, VA and move out of State – miss him already as our agent here in FL. If you are looking fo an agent in northern VA look no further!
Don and Elizabeth Hudenburg
I wanted to write and let you know how pleased I was, once again, with your services as my agent for the recent sale of my townhouse in Springfield. As you know, I have been a long time client of yours, both personally and professionally, and our association over the last ten years has been a delight. Not only have you made me look good professionally by handling numerous estate and trust sales for various clients, I have personally benefited from your in-depth knowledge of the Northern Virginia area real estate market.
As I have told the many estate clients I have referred to you, you are a professional and when you make a recommendation, whether it be a listing price or the advisability of accepting an offer, I know I am getting the most honest answer available to me. Your integrity is beyond reproach. You also have a wonderful rapport with your clients, even the difficult ones and the patience of a saint.
Beth Shannon McNally
Dan first sits and listens to what you have to say about the sale of your home. Everyone’s priorities are different and during this stressful time he is able to understand your needs, address them and come up with a workable solution to your particular needs. Our experience with him was fabulous, far and away the best realtor we’ve used or had contact with throughout the purchase and sale of 4 homes over the years, he certainly delivered on all his promises and I can recommend him without any reservations what so ever.
Mike and Adelheid Osmers
Dan, only upon using another agent, (in another marketplace) could we truly appreciate working with you. Your knowledge of the market was a real asset in selling our home for a good price. We found you to be knowledgeable, courteous and professional.
Brian and Karen Staudt
You’re a true professional! Your approach to selling real estate is great – You are very methodical, your marketing ideas are wonderful and you make the experience painless!
When we were interviewing agents to list our home, we met with several very good ones. You stood out and impressed us by going the extra mile and doing more market analysis than anyone else that came to meet with us. That attention to detail continued throughout our association. You were organized, impeccably dependable and consistently optimistic (which helped tremendously as the weak market slowed our plans to sell). You positioned us well, fully taking advantage of the internet to market our home to qualified buyers. You kept us ahead of curve, as you kept tabs of what the market was doing, ensuring we were priced correctly. After we got a contract and the home inspection happened, you were fully involved in helping us address the buyer’s requests. You even helped tie up loose ends for us since we had to leave the area before closing. Thank you so much for your hard work, dedication and professionalism, Dan. We wish you much deserved success in the future!
Randy and Cristina Binzer
We were so pleased to have you as our Real Estate agent. We think you did a great job. You were calm, efficient and have a kind attitude. You exhibited great patience and professionalism in walking us through each step of the selling process. Since I live in North Carolina, it was a great comfort to me that I could turn everything over to you and know that it would be taken care of. You gave me great peace of mind.
Pamela Helmick Newton
You made the whole process as painless as possible. You made us feel comfortable and always took the time to explain things to us. We appreciated your honesty and integrity. It really felt like dealing with a friend.
Mike and Nancy Sheleheda
I currently live in Colorado and have never personally met Dan. All of our transactions have been via phone or fax. However, I received excellent, personalized service at all times. Dan was always friendly, informative and had a great attitude. He assisted me with a variety of tasks such as exchanging keys, acting as a liaison between my tenant and the Repair people, and picking up the Reston Homeowner’s association documents to prepare for the sale. He made long distance phone calls to me as needed to keep me informed.
It was great to know I had someone I could trust working for me who was honest and really cared about his customer. Thanks again to Dan for doing such a fine job with my property.
Our prior experiences with both buying and selling property have resulted in less than positive feelings about the professionalism and dedication of the agents we have encountered. I can attest that your approach to the sale of our property was both realistic and professional in a market which is less than favorable. Your counsel and candor as a professional was appreciated.
Jim and Denise Vickery
Just to let you know how much we appreciate everything you’ve done for us. I know it’s your job, but I think the person you are and because you care about people, is why you do such a good job.
Teresa and Eric Whittemore
Your efforts on my behalf to sell my condominium in such a weak seller’s market were met with success because of your dedication and professionalism. Your knowledge of the market, obviously a result of hard work and research, contributed significantly to closing the deal to the satisfaction of all parties. Your counsel was always realistic and resulted in what I am sure is the best deal that was out there for me. It was truly a pleasure to know we were dealing with someone of your ethical standards.
Karen J. Suraci
Your professionalism and expertise were instrumental in making the whole process run smoothly. I appreciate you taking those extra steps to ensure no detail was overlooked. Because of your hard work, the closing went very well.
Virginia G. Williamson, Major, USAF
Thank you for helping with everything that you did – it was such a stressful time in our lives and I thought that your effort was professional and friendly.
Dale and Janet Weiss
I want to thank you for your hard work in selling my condo – Brentana Park. Your advice on improving the appearance helped greatly I’m sure.
Anna Marie Fry
I really appreciated your patience in explaining a lot of the legal and financial jargon. After my fathers death I was placed in a very vulnerable situation not only because of my lack of experience in this area, but also because of my job being in California. You really looked out for my interests and helped me through a difficult time. I will recommend you to anyone I know needing a Realtor. Thanks again.
We appreciate your attention to every detail, help in a quick settlement, your ability to negotiate the moving of our possessions into the condo early, and also helping us get a split settlement. Excellent job, Dan.
Larry and Connie Dohm
I truly do not know where to begin in an attempt to adequately thank you for all that you have done in selling Carolyn’s house so quickly and smoothly. I am so appreciative of all of your efforts in hiring the businesses and overseeing the work for all of the repairs and updating. I am grateful for the friendly and pleasant attitude you maintained every time we talked, and I know that you went way beyond the services required for most of your listings.
Sandra R. Tegnelia
I want to thank you for your assistance and hard work in selling my house. As you know, the market was difficult at the time. Your advice on improving the appearance and setting the asking price were extremely valuable to me, particularly since I was living nearly half a continent away at the time. I also appreciated your help with the sometimes tricky negotiations with a fussy buyer.
Robert K. Carr
We especially appreciated your effort to make the deal go through in spite of last minute problems.
Herm and Carolee White
We appreciated all your efforts in working with a very difficult agent representing the buyer!
Steve and Cheryl Hillebrand
I liked your calm manner at all times, helpful and responsive. Excellent!
Lori Ann McEwen
We particularly appreciated your sound pricing based on analysis of the community and the excellent discussion on how to prepare to show the house.
Don and Ann Hudenburg
You were always polite, personable and had good ideas. I think you are knowledgeable in your field. The second closing went so smoothly – thanks!
I liked that you were relaxed, confident and made me feel that everything was okay – even with the damn hot water heater!
I was pleased that we sold the home in 90 days! Considering all the work that needed to be done, the time of the year and the property drawbacks, I felt this was good. I appreciated the assistance with the acquisition and delivery of the homeowner’s documents.
I really appreciated your professional and knowledgeable advice; your timely response and that you always had solutions. I particularly appreciated your understanding my needs/feelings and humanizing the whole process.
We liked that you took care of everything and are so friendly and helpful. We appreciated your patient, thorough explanations of everything. We’ll refer everyone we know!
Gregg and Jennie Rubright
Tucker and I really appreciated your expertise while trying to sell our house during a slow market period. You kept a calm head during a most stressful time for us. Your pre-sales advice for fixing up our home was right-on and greatly appreciated ? I?m sure it made a difference in our home?s presentation. You very patiently led us through all the details of the sales process and made the experience as painless as possible. Thanks for dealing with the contract A/C issue after we had moved, too ? that was a real headache for us. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone!
Jane and Tucker Pierce
Cool, calm and collected – that’s Dan!
I liked that you are competent and friendly. You inspire trust.
There was nothing in the sales process that was stressful, you walked us through the process seamlessly. We really liked the personal touches and the willingness to go the extra mile to get the job done. Don’t change a thing ? keep up the good work.
Dave and Kim Lawlor
If you want a good person to work with on a house call Dan Thiewes from RE/MAX Premier, he made the selling of the house go like a breeze. THANKS DAN.
Gene and Judy Elick
We liked your responsiveness and attention to our needs. We appreciated the “keep moving forward” attitude.
Scott and Debbie Perkins
Our one certainty in our “Spring of Uncertainty” was knowing that we could trust you completely. We can’t tell you how much that meant. You are very professional with your attention to detail. We appreciate your sense of humor and always being honest!! Thank you!
Mike and Kit Mottice
Now that the dust has settled, I wanted to send a note to thank you for helping us sell our home. It was an emotional experience for both Dyan & me, but you definitely took the sting out of the process. Your relaxed outlook on the sale and issues was comforting.
Harry and Dyan Ertter
We liked your making time for us – no matter what the situation was. You were always reachable, even with your busy schedule. We appreciated your helpful hints on how to ready our home for the sale. Your calming peaceful attitude and positive frame of mind are great assets. Your guidance through this experience was so helpful to us. You are the best and we are so fortunate to have had you represent us.
Robert and Joyce Smith
We particularly appreciated you putting our needs first. You were also sensitive to our family crisis. We also enjoy your relaxed and fun manner. You don’t take yourself too seriously and it makes working with you so easy!
Gerry and Elizabeth Hish
Dan, you did everything possible to ensure that our condo got sold. You are the most hard working real estate agent that we know. We liked how you were always there when we needed something, answer questions and address our concerns. We appreciated your accessibility. Thank you very much for all of your help!
Ron & Amy Dick and Michael & Nini Wiseman
We were impressed by your ability to tour the house and identify the items that needed attention. We were also impressed by your knowledge of the market when determining the sales price. The house was correctly priced and sold for full price in one week in a slow buyers market.
Phil and Jan Mengel
We liked your responsiveness and focus.
Terry and Laurie Hagen
I have dealt with Realtors only twice before in selling properties and in BOTH cases the broker did not listen to me, caused us a ton of undue work and we ended up with less-than-happy buyers
Dan was the total opposite!!! He listened to me, evaluated my input and made solid, well founded suggestions. I am certain, that in a better market, due to Dan’s suggestions I would have sold the condo in days. But even the soft market (as well as a very niche market) Dan got the condo sold much faster than I anticipated and at a decent price. I am most appreciate of his hard work.
We really appreciated the personal touches. You genuinely cared. The photos and virtual tour of our house were extremely impressive. You were awesome!
Fran and Bill Rencher
You were always there when help was needed. You stayed on top of all issues, made settlement easy, and followed up on the roof repair and the return of the escrow money.
James E. Penrod
Great job Dan! We appreciate all you did to make this a smooth transaction – your advice and counsel was comforting. I’m always one to listen to the wise sage wisdom from Dan.
Jim and Cathy Gasparis
Your patience in explaining the process to me many times and in several different ways. I appreciated the fact that you made sure I had all your telephone numbers and was available to answer questions from both my sister and I during our convenient times.
We appreciated everything that you did for us. We liked that you were always available, honest with your opinions and have a fun personality.
Josh and Stephanie Sams
Whenever Dan and I interact, I always feel that my issues or concerns are his top priority. His is a good listener. His local knowledge of the real estate market and attention to details regarding the whole buying and selling process is top notch. He always demonstrated the confidence that we could work through any obstacle when closing on the transaction. Lastly, I always appreciated his professional guidance, as we worked through all the business and emotional issues surrounding the sale of my home. Finally, Dan gets results.
Dan you were always there when we needed you. Your professionalism and knowledge about most of the processes we were going through was excellent to outstanding. Your mentoring and conversations were always helpful and insightful.
Amos and Rhonda Hewitt
We liked Dan’s quick response to all our calls and questions. He was an excellent mix of friendly, fun, professional, thorough and honest. We recommend without reservation.
Deb and Rick Cocrane
We have a “history” and you are very trustworthy. After 20 years, you remained in contact. That is effort and loyalty! I particularly appreciated your accessibility and always promptly returning calls/emails. You are very knowledgeable and informed in the Real Estate business and current trends. You provide sound advice and execute a good business plan that always keeps the interest of your client first. Thank you Dan for a wonderful experience during a difficult transaction for me.
We really liked your personal and approachable style.

You were very knowledgeable, co-operative, calm, reassuring, prompt and always giving the best service. We appreciate everything that you did and think you did and excellent job.
Brian and Marilyn Sutton
When I wanted to sell my townhouse, I chose Dan Thiewes to be my agent. I really liked that he was upbeat and optimistic, yet he was always very straightforward, laying out exactly how things stood and what I could expect. I appreciated that he was so available for phone calls, and I never felt like I was intruding on his time. He educated me on the finer points of getting a house ready to show and I think that it really helped to get a quick sale. Everyone marveled at how fast the sale happened and in the coldest, snowiest weather possible. Thanks to Dan I sold my townhouse very quickly and for a great price.
We like your knowledge of the market and comps in the area.
I think you managed a very emotional sale for me in the best way possible. I thank you for all your understanding while I went through this tough process.
The best part of your service is the manner in which you made me feel like I was your only contract and that you sold our house so fast. Highly recommended.
Lee and Ada Funkhouser
Dan was very caring of us as sellers and very prompt. Thanks for everything!
Joyce and Barry Miller
I really liked your timely, frequent, clear communication. Most of all, I felt I could trust you and that we benefited from your experience in Real Estate.
You were always available for a chat and clarification. You kept us up to speed on all happenings. We really appreciated the beautiful photos of our house.
Sarah and Ben Carr
You sold our house in a week. What can I say? (Oh, and for above list price) Great job Dan!
Mike Swiger and Suzy Haywood-Swiger
We appreciated your knowledge of the market and experience. It showed itself from the overall guidance from preparing for listing all the way to working through the post-settlment advise.
Jim and Cathy Gapsaris
Dan made every aspect enjoyable and stress-free. He was always looking out for our best interests and honest about every aspect of the selling/buying process. Thank you very much!!!
Scott and Carolyn Johnson
Thanks for everything in helping us through this. Again, thanks for all your help and wise counsel. We could not have done this without you.
Rick Osial and Dana Kern
You provide truly outstanding expertise, advice and Experience. We can’t thank you enough for many years of valuable advice, contractor referrals and friendly advice. We appreciate you patiently explaining everything to Jen, who was a first-time seller. Your recommendations for preparing the house for sale were outstanding and on-target. You went above and beyond with staying in contact and communications with this being a remote transaction for us – you even added chlorine to the hot tub!
Doug Pascale and Jen Hentz
