The Power of the Golden Rule...
People matter. What we do matters. How we do what we do matters even more.
I strive to live out the Golden Rule: "To treat others the way I want to be treated." For me, this begins with my wife, family, friends, and you, my clients and future clients. It extends to other agents, escrow officers and everyone involved in a transaction.
The Golden Rule is deeply connected to another principle: "you reap what you sow," or, said another way, "the best way to get what you want is to help others get what they want." I believe that when people (other agents, assistants, escrow, inspectors, etc.) are treated with respect, consideration, and honesty (just the way you and I want to be treated) problems are easier to deal with and solutions are easier to come by.
With my clients it involves listening and knowing that it's all about them, not about me and my ego. It involves knowing their needs and wants, returning phone calls, communicating, and walking with them from beginning to end. It means doing for you what I would want an agent to do for me if I was buying or selling a home. It means giving you real service, not just "lip service."
I have a confession to make: I don't always apply the Golden Rule. I wish I did, but the clear truth is that I don't (just ask my wife and kids!). However, the Golden Rule will be my standard and ambition. I will blow it from time to time, but when I do, I hope that I will admit it, apologize and strive to do better!
Family Man at Heart
A key to understanding this dynamic individual is knowing that he's truly a family man. Dan and his wife, Deb, were high school sweethearts and were married during their freshman year in college. Together they have been very involved in raising their sons, Josh, Jeremy and Joel, and daughter, Jessica (Josh and Jeremy have recently joined Dan in business). "In my personal life, my family and my faith are what matter most," he declares. "Nothing is more important to me!" When their kids were in middle and elementary school, they moved from Colorado to Rancho Peñasquitos and the Poway School District. "We love this community!" Dan exclaims. "This area is all about family."
It's a Good Life
It's no surprise that when he's not handling matters for his real estate clients, Dan's activities frequently center around home and family. Holidays and other special occasions, when everyone is together, are especially valued. "As a family we love to eat, talk and play games. It can get pretty intense in our home, but we have a lot of fun," Dan reveals. He also loves going to the movies, traveling and running with his great-looking beagle, Rusty. But if you ask Dan, he'll tell you what he enjoys most of all is sitting down with family and friends in a pleasant atmosphere with good food, good drink and good conversation. For Dan, it doesn't get better than that.
As a Realtor®, Dan's No.1 objective is to provide truly exceptional and professional service to his clients. With each and every home sale or purchase he manages, Dan emphasizes clear and timely communication, unwavering attention to specific client needs and expectations, knowledgeable advice for the wisest decisions and tireless follow-through. "As far as I'm concerned, there's no better way to serve my clients' best interests than to treat them exactly the way I would want to be treated," he says.
Serving both sellers and buyers in Inland North County and neighboring communities, Dan begins by conducting an in-person conversation to thoroughly understand his clients' desires and goals. By listening and drawing on that crucial input, he creates a custom-tailored approach to the home sale or purchase. Sellers value his one-on-one attention, timely updates and tenacious marketing efforts. Buyers know that Dan will scour the communities he serves for properties he feels will meet their every need. And families in particular find that this devoted husband and father is perfectly in sync with their needs and expectations.This Dan Can isn't just a slogan. It's an attitude and commitment that embody Dan's approach to each and every one of his clients. The result is consistently solid, people-oriented service.

Josh and Jeremy and their fiancés, Lauren and Sara respectively, have joined with me to form This Dan Can Real Estate Group. This is an exciting time for us! Josh graduated from Cal Poly - San Luis Obispo and Jeremy from Pepperdine in December 2004. As graduation neared we all spent many hours talking about business, values, and the future. Out of an already thriving business and these hours of talking, a vision was born. The term "real estate" can sometimes be cold and abstract, but there is nothing cold or abstract about what we do. We are in the business of helping people buy and sell their homes. This almost always involves change, transition, stress, anxiety, and excitement, often, all at the same time. Selling and buying a home is usually a very personal experience and has long-term implications. Kids are raised, friends are made, dreams are born and fulfilled - in short, life happens. We believe in homeownership. We believe that it is good for families, schools, the economy, and the community as a whole. We are proud to be in this business. We feel honored and privileged to be entrusted with helping our clients buy and sell their homes and move toward their goals and dreams.In addition, we believe that full service, great service is far too rare these days. We believe that you deserve much better service than you usually receive. Our goal is to give you that service, what we call "luxury service." This Dan Can Real Estate Group will work together to give each of our clients the best possible service from the time we meet to the close of escrow and beyond.
