Testimonials for Dan Lopez
It was a great experience! It was fast, swift and my sales process moved forward very fast, got an all cash buyer within a couple weeks of posting and property closed. Very happy with Dan's experience and responsiveness in the process.

We recently closed on our first house with the help of Dan Lopez as our realtor.
When we were searching for a house, we called Dan because we noted that he has experience as both a buyer and seller agent. Not only did he immediately answer his phone, he arranged for us to see the houses we were interested within 24 hours of our first conversation.
As the buying process continued, my husband reached out to Dan for his home buying, mortgage/lending, and inspection advice. Dan was always very responsive and really helped guide us through the process of buying our first home. In fact, his entire team worked to expedite many necessary documents we needed, sometimes at the last minute. The Legends Realty office is a well-oiled machine!
I expect anyone who is looking to buy a house or wishing to sell will be completely satisfied with Dan Lopez's realty experience and level of professionalism. Even after closing on our home, we still call him with questions and he is quick to respond with help. We were very lucky to have made contact with Dan to guide us through this entire process, and now we are proud new home owners!
Dan and his team at Legends are super professional. Whether you need rental management or sales assistance, you can be assured it will be handled promptly and efficiently.
Dan Lopez helped us to sell one home and purchase another, from start to finish, move out to move in, in a matter of only 6 weeks. I know it sounds too good to be true; believe me, we were shocked as well, but it happened! Not only that, Dan got us a contract on our previous home, for more than the asking price, after the house was on the market for only 3 days. Throughout the quick 6 week process, Dan was there every step of the way, to answer frantic late-night emails, to show us potential homes with only a last minute's notice, and to answer emails/phone calls/text messages immediately. He even kept in touch with us after closing on both homes to make sure everything was as planned. What I appreciated most was his attention to detail; in my experience, this is something that either you have or you don't have, and Dan definitely has it! This was in stark contrast to the realtor we used to purchase our first home, where we felt like we as the buyers were doing all the work and the realtor was just along for the ride. I could not have asked for a better experience with Dan and his dedicated team. I hope not to be moving again for a long time, but if it happens, we will definitely be going back to Dan Lopez and Legends Realty!

My overall experience with Dan Lopez was phenomenal. He has a solid understanding of the local real estate market and how to meet and exceed the needs of his clients. I had the pleasure of working with Dan on two separate occasions, during the rental process and sale of my of investment property in Lake Mary. I would highly recommend Dan to any buyer/seller in the Orlando market place!
Dan is an incredible person – always smiling, always positive, very easy to work with, and does an amazing job at ever single task he assigns himself. Dan is one of those people who simply does his best every time the first time and wouldn’t think of ever letting anyone down.
I work with 150-200 Realtors each year and Dan is by far one of the best Realtors I ahve ever conducted business with. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
Dan is very persistent in his negotiating and will help you to find your dream home if you allow him to. It helps to be specific in what you are looking for.
Thanks Dan for all your hard work!
