"It was great to work with Dan and this team again. I always know when Dan brings me an offer on my listing that it will close."

- from Peer Reputation

I’ve bought about 12 houses and sold eight in my lifetime and only two of the real estate agents were worth the money. Daniel Casabonne is one of them. We had a great experience when we moved here four years ago. He knows the area, knows how to negotiate, and most importantly he’ll tell you things even if you don’t want to hear them. You can’t go wrong. Also does not matter whether you’re selling a mansion or a trailer everybody gets excellent help.

- Stewart S.Nextdoor - Sonoma

“Dear Dan, A long and arduous journey has reached its successful conclusion, in the greatest part due to the efforts of two true professionals, you and Marie (Miller). Without your expertise, enthusiasm, and perseverance, the sale of Oleander Hill most likely would never have occurred…Let me simply say that you all excelled in most difficult circumstances.”

“Dear Dan, Thank you for providing the local real estate data I needed. I wasn’t expecting a live person to answer the phone, let alone the information I asked for delivered to my Blackberry seconds later. You guys run a top notch office. No wonder you’re a top producer in Sonoma Valley.”

- Joanne Sanders, Mayor

I want to thank you again for the smooth transition on Inge’s house sale. You are the greatest salesmen and got Inge a fantastic price that tops all. Thank you.

- Mitzie

“Daniel did an excellent job of selling an estate house in Calif., for me. I live in Washington. This was a difficult sale. He hired professionals to clean, paint, carpet, haul and landscape. Daniel dealt with a problem tenant until he vacated. I am very glad I hired him. He negotiated a fair price and paid attention to each detail until it closed. I highly recommend him.”

- Lynne Moore

"He is just hands down the best. Honest, hardworking, super knowledgeable and really cares about his clients. He works just as hard for a little mobile home client as he does for his multi million dollar client. He goes from helping a famous singer or actor to some normal average Joe with ease and makes everyone feel like they are number one. His great sense of humor helps calm the nerves too."

- Mary Patuillia

“Dan found us our house then sold it for us 3 years later. He sold it when the market was difficult in California but because of Dan’s expertise, diligence, and patience- everyone involved in our transaction came out a winner! Dan is always kind and fun. He knows his market and is good at telling you what you need to hear in a positive manner. I’m proud to know him!”

- Tami Bounds

We want to thank you for all you've done for us. You are great and patient, smart and thoughtful. We trust you completely. We love the place! Come by and see us!

- Kendra, John & Suzy

Selling the Acacia property is the second experience of selling a property that I've had with Daniel Casabonne. So how do I describe the experience of having Daniel help me sell both properties? Daniel demonstrated the following qualities that ensure a successful sale: Calculative, Collaborator, Honest, Listened, Nerves of Steel, Patient, Supportive, Adapted, Hustled, Laser sharp Negotiator and got the results that met my expectations! I'm looking forward to having Daniel help me sell my third property before this year ends.

- Jose

Thanks Daniel Casabonne, you are a super agent! We couldn't have been happier working with you on both the purchase and sale of our house. You're the best!

“Dear Dan, We wanted to thank you for the great job you did on selling our condominium at Cobblestone. Your ability to market and advertise the property in Marin and San Francisco was a real asset. You being at every showing, inspection, and re-inspection gave us confidence that you were “on top” of what was happening. Even after we had an accepted offer on the condo; your working to get back up interest demonstrated the high energy and dedication you put into your listings. We have been involved in more than ten real estate transaction and you are at the top of the list of realtors we have dealt with in all transaction. We would not hesitate to recommend you as a realtor to anyone interested. Regards, Rich & Judy Disman”

- Rich & Judy Disman

“Dear Dan, Roy and I greatly appreciate the excellent service that you provided as our listing agent. Your frequent updates, your follow-up with realtors that showed our property, your thoroughness when reviewing documents–all this plus your pleasant attitude–has put your head and shoulders ahead of every other realtor that Roy and I have contracted with. This is no small feat since Roy and I have bought and sold seven homes in the last 25 years, in several states along with two properties in Montreal. Dan, thank you; you’re the best! Warmest regards, Marlene Verdery”

- Marlene Verdery

"We chose Daniel Casabonne as our realtor after a thoughtful and thorough amount of research on our part. Selling our primary residence was a very big deal to us and we wanted to be smart and maximize our profit in any way we could. First off, you sure can’t argue with stats like he has! You’re looking at an extremely successful professional with high national rankings and local superstar status. Once we had signed with Dan, we found him to be 100% accessible. He patiently answered the same questions more than once. He was completely responsive to texts, which is our preferred method of contact, but also easy to phone or email. His office staff deserves their own shout out as they are absolutely top notch, 100% communicative with infallible courtesy and depth of knowledge. I don’t think you would necessarily receive that kind of attention from every superstar realtor; we felt taken care of at every step of the process. As we got our house ready to show, he was right there when needed, rolling up his sleeves and helping us to make decisions in the basement, grabbing a broom and brushing off the porch … I don’t want to promise he’ll do that for you :) but he did it for us, so a fantastic combination of business smarts and years of experience, plus practical every day assistance. We followed Dan’s suggestions to the letter, every step of the way, and what was the result? multiple offers which came in quickly, a fast sale, a fast close, and a sales price thousands over asking. Would we hire him again? In a heartbeat!"

- Ruth Escher

great guy...works hard!

- Deborah E.Sobre Vista

You are the Realtor I hold as the gold standard.

- Michael

- Diane R.

"Daniel Casabonne recently sold a home for my wife and I in Sonoma. I write not only to praise Daniel but highly recommend him to you as both an agent and advisor on the sale and transfer of Sonoma real estate. I have been practicing environmental law and land use transactions for 35 years. I have handled many of my own real estate purchase transactions. Daniel taught me many things. Daniel is honest and direct. You can count on him to keep his word and to be prompt and keep you as a seller informed about who is looking at your home and who he is courting to look at your home. Daniel is above the fray. He has a good sense of humor and intelligent pragmatic approach to sales which makes his enthusiasm for your home contagious without feeling phony. Dan is not driven by statistics or the opinions of the “real estate agents.” Daniel will work with you to market your home individually. This is important because Daniel doesn’t just place your home on the MLS and wait for the phone to ring. Daniel actively seeks out people to see your home and personally shows it. Daniel works hard with interested parties to put the deal together and get your home into contract. Once in contract he works long hours to meet all contingencies and get the sale closed, on time. If you want to sell your home for the best price, look no further than Daniel Casabonne. I recommend him without reservation."

“I have used Dan to complete 2 sales and 1 purchase in the last 2 years. I’m also currently looking to purchase again and am using Dan because of his dedication to his clients. He responds quickly and answers my questions thoroughly and honestly which I believe sets him apart from other Realtor’s who just tell you what you want to hear. He is well versed in all markets within Sonoma and Napa Counties. Dan is always available for a call, text or e-mail, if you are looking for a consistent, honest and extremely hard working Realtor, give Dan a try… You will not be disappointed. “
