“I searched for listings on my own and tried to negotiate directly with sellers’ agents to lower the purchase price since I wasn’t initially represented by a broker. I quickly found that no seller’s agent would entertain this, and so I was thrilled when I was referred to Dan. Not only did he give us significant cash back at closing (essentially getting us a lower purchase price), but he also provided a detailed market and comps analysis when we decided to make an offer and valuable insight and advice throughout the home buying process.”

“Dan’s services were a perfect fit. With his large rebate at closing, I was able to convert the time I spent on Streeteasy into sizable savings and benefit.

“We came to work with Dan following a recommendation from friends who had just purchased an apartment with his help. We were at the time working with a broker but were not feeling that she was adding any benefit or assistance to our home search. From day one working with Dan was a wonderful experience. He is honest, attentive, professional and gave us the assistance and support we needed. We feel that Dan made our purchase process easier, and it didn’t matter what time day or night, weekday or weekend, he was available for our questions and to assist in our purchase. We highly recommend Dan and Digs to all.”

“From the moment we met Dan at an open house until the day of closing, we were nothing but impressed and satisfied by his professionalism, his extensive knowledge of the NYC real estate market, his deep caring about our frustrations looking to purchase in this very dynamic market, and his help with the multitude of questions and post purchase references we needed as 1st time buyers. Purchasing an apartment can be one of the most exciting experiences; it can also be frustrating, disappointing, time consuming, and quite overwhelming. Dan was there with us every step of the way, a trusted and patient advisor, giving frank and unbiased opinion – yet we never felt pressured to make a decision – he worked with us at the pace that was comfortable for us. As 1st time buyers, we were often uncertain – pre-war, post war, no need for any reno, gut reno… Dan was there for us through all the questions. Dan truly cares about his clients, a wonderful person and realtor. The rebate that he offers is the final testimony of his care, giving back to his clients to make their transition just a bit easier. Our family is so grateful to you Dan! Thank you!”

“Dan assisted us in the purchase of a two bedroom apartment in the West Village. Throughout the entire process he was engaged, knowledgeable, and well prepared when we entered into negotiation. His gentle pressure got us the price we wanted. The closing process, usually the most stressful part of a purchase, was made much easier with Dan assisting us. We would recommend him to anyone without reservation, and have done so already to several friends.”

As a first-time home buyer in the competitive market of NYC, it was a pleasure working with Dan. I was extremely happy to have him guiding me through the entire process. He did a very thorough job, and his information sharing, honesty, and knowledge of the real estate market were beyond excellent. Dan always made himself available if I needed to talk or had questions, and was always flexible in meeting arrangements. He helped me during each step of the process, including a bidding war, and, when needed, he also referred me to people he trusted for the closing and mortgage application, which were all very efficient and competent. Finally, the rebate I received after closing made it only better! I would definitely work with him again if I decide to sell my place, and will highly recommend him to anybody looking for an excellent broker in NYC.

“Dan was the most honest and knowledgeable broker we have come across during our apartment search.  In fact, he discouraged us from buying places that were not exactly what we were looking for but were much more expensive and would have given him a much higher commission than the apartment we purchased in the end.  He was always quick to respond to our many questions and his communication was always friendly and patient.  Dan was a pleasure to work with and get to know both on a professional and personal level.  We’ve recommended him to everyone we know looking to buy or sell an apartment.”

My husband and I went through multiple brokers before finding Dan and can be very demanding clients, and we were very happy with Dan’s services. He is extremely responsive and accommodating and offered helpful advice throughout our entire process. Even after closing on the apartment, Dan has been just as responsive whenever we have reached out to him with random questions.

“We were very fortunate to find Digs Realty after getting frustrated working with numerous other agents who didn’t understand the market and/or our interests.  Dan and Sara bring a personal and attentive touch to the New York real estate market and they will be there for you day and night addressing any and all questions.  Dan’s attention to detail and thorough understanding of the nuances of the market was instrumental in closing on our co-op.  His rigorous and thoughtful analysis of the market for a particular unit prior to putting in an offer was the exact price we negotiated.  And Sara brings a warm and relentlessly positive presence to the team who is on top of everything and will be certain that you put together a winning coop board package (potentially complete with a board package wine and sign party).  We couldn’t be happier in our new apartment and Dan and Sara were essential to getting the deal done.  We wholeheartedly recommend Digs to anyone interested in buying an apartment in NYC.”

“Dan is the best broker we’ve worked with. The search of our apartment in Manhattan lasted on and off for 3 years. Dan was always there for us and finally helped us close an apartment that we love. With a real estate attorney background, Dan is very knowledgeable about the market and all aspect of the real estate transaction. He accompanied us seeing apartments all over Manhattan and always gave us honest opinions about pros and cons of each apartment. The insights he had on all the buildings were very helpful in helping us make decisions. We never felt pressure to buy, and Dan was always very patient. No matter whether we contacted Dan by text, email, or phone, he never failed to respond quickly. Dan is someone we can trust and depend on. It’s rare to high quality of service and save money. With Dan, we got both! We’d highly recommend Dan to anyone who wants to buy or sell real estate in NYC.”

“We have known Dan for almost 10 years and have recommended him to a number people, all of whom have had fantastic feedback. One year ago, we were fortunate enough to be able to work with Dan on selling our 2BR apartment in an UWS coop. He was professional, creative, immediately responsive, and very accommodating to our needs. His feedback on how to prepare our apartment for sale was very concrete and easy to follow and he was able to clearly communicate strategy around pricing and timing of showings. We never felt pressured or rushed and we always like like we were a priority to Dan. Even though his pricing is much more reasonable than a traditional real estate broker, the time and effort he puts into each sale is comparable if not higher. We would never purchase or sell another apartment in NYC without Dan and continue to recommend him to all of our friends and family.”

The business model of a rebate was an added bonus, allowing us to fund a renovation and turn our new apartment into a true home. Thanks Dan!”

“Before my husband and I were expecting our first child, we knew that our apartment would ultimately be too small for us. I mentioned to Dan that we were considering buying a new place in a couple of years. Dan asked what would be ideal for us, and kept us on his radar. He would occasionally send listings that, even though I wasn’t ready to be looking, helped give us a sense of the market and what was available.

My pregnancy and the time after were consumed with baby planning and sleepless nights of early parenthood. We didn’t have time to think about a new place, yet felt the pressure quite keenly as our son began to take his first steps. I told Dan that we were getting close to a point of outgrowing the place, and he began a search for us in earnest. The listings he sent were ones within the realm of possibility for us, with some above and below to help us refine what we wanted and what we could afford. He reviewed some of the listings I found on my own, giving his expert opinion and offering to help any way he could. He didn’t put any pressure on us about any of the places, merely suggesting we take a look at the posts and tweaking his search based on our feedback…”

“Two words to describe working with Dan for both buying and selling an apartment: Genuine and patient!
From the beginning of our apartment hunt to purchase on the UES, Dan was always available for any questions we had about the neighborhood. We never felt pressure to pull the trigger on an apartment. He was incredibly patient and truly cared about our best interests and not just the commission. When we needed help running the numbers to see how one apartment compared to another, Dan was always very honest and never pressured us one way or another.

We also worked with Dan to sell our other apartment. He had great advice on how we could do small cheap improvements to raise the price of the apartment which was very helpful. Unfortunate for us, our first buyer backed out. Dan didn’t stress one bit. The next day it was back on the market and 3 days later we were back in contract with another buyer.

Dan is fantastic to work with and we look forward to working with him again as we grow our family and move around the city.”

“I’ve worked with Dan on several deals now – I successfully bought twice with him and referred my boyfriend to him and I can tell you that he is exactly what you want if you believe that there is no mystery around how real estate in New York works!  He never forced his opinions on me (and I’ve had the misfortune in the past of working with agents who thought their job was to force their preferences and likes on me) but he always provided relevant and useful data and knowledge about the market, the areas, and other professionals in the business (through him I found several other excellent real estate professionals who helped the deals go smoothly).  The rebate is great, but someone who partners with you on deals and helps you get what *you* need is even better!”

“I was a first time homebuyer and really did not know what to expect from the process, or where to even begin. Dan was a referral from a friend and from the start he and his team were awesome. From our initial conversation he got a sense for what I was looking for and helped walk me through the process and what to expect. The home I ultimately bought was a home Dan sent to me once he understood what I was looking for. Since I knew exactly what I wanted Dan was able to help refine the search process accordingly.  When I was ready to make an offer Dan was able to help me understand the comps in the neighborhood and building to put together a very competitive offer. And once we closed, Sara was a gem and helped me navigate the extremely complicated co-op process. The day I closed, Dan was there and the check he gave me right after closing was an awesome end to a terrific process. I wouldn’t be a homeowner without his help and expertise and I love my home. There is no other team I would work with.”

“I had purchased a co-op 8 years ago, but had not had a great experience with my first agent, so when I was ready to start thinking about something new, I went looking for a new agent. I found Dan and Digs Realty through Google searching, and was initially attracted by the rebate concept. But I would work with Dan on any real estate transaction, rebate or not (though it’s an amazing part of the deal!) Dan is fantastic. I worked with him for almost 2 years on buying a new apartment, and then selling my previous apartment. Dan is extremely knowledgeable about the market as well as the ins and outs of the legal aspects of the deals. He was a partner to me from start to finish. He was patient and guided me through my VERY specific search in the Village areas…he was supportive and buttoned up as we bid on multiple apartments that turned out not to be the one…and he helped me maneuver just the right way to finally land a new apartment that was 100x better than any of the ones I’d bid on before! And then he worked incredibly hard to sell my previous apartment, right as the market took an odd turn, and helped me get the price I needed on that final sale. Dan is incredibly responsive, answering texts, calls and emails quickly; and he was persistent and on top of all the details on both of my deals. I couldn’t have made it through this 2 year long process without him! And will absolutely work with Dan in the future! ”

We had very specific and unique requirements, but Dan patiently stuck with us for over three years and multiple failed bids and contract negotiations, until we found our dream home! Dan is extremely knowledgeable in many aspects of the real estate field. With the refunds that Dan provides to his clients (he gave us a check right at closing), his services are a remarkable value! The refund doesn’t mean he skimps on the service – in fact, we feel that he has done way more for us than previous full-fee brokers we have worked with. He is especially great at providing detailed comp analyses that help you get confident that the price you are offering makes sense given the market. Not only do we highly recommend Dan and Digs Realty to anyone looking to buy a property in NYC, but we have already referred Dan to several family members and coworkers, who have all had a great experience!”

They are wonderful people, made everything extremely easy (shout out to Sara!), gave fantastic advice, connected us with an amazing lawyer, and always listened to and addressed our questions. We felt very well taken care of, and loved that Dan went to bat for us in any situation where we needed help. (Which was quite a few times, in fact!) He and his team were extremely thorough at every point in the process. As a detail person, this set my mind at ease. He caught several surprise issues with the unit (during the final walkthrough) that ended up saving us both money and headache, which I deeply appreciate. The reimbursement aspect of his business – which we hadn’t really thought about beforehand – is fascinating: Getting a nice check made out to you after closing on your home is both bizarre and wonderful! If I were ever to buy or sell again, I would work with Dan, Sara, and the Digs team in a heartbeat. They are truly excellent at their work!”

Digs also shares part of their commission as a rebate to you, which is a nice bonus!”

“I got to know Dan from friends’ referral who all had great experience working with him in the past. Dan is a fantastic broker, very patient and knowledgeable, never put pressure on me to make quick decision. He has guided me through all aspects of this lengthy process and respected my decisions including not pursuing one of the initial accepted offers. I definitely learnt a lot through this process from Dan, got to know what I really want, and found my lovely new apartment with his help. I highly recommend Dan and would gladly work with him again in the future.”

Working with Digs Realty was the best decision we made!  We cannot recommend them enough and no written words can adequately express how impressed we were with our experience and how grateful we are to Dan, Sara, and the rest of the team.  We worked closely with Dan for over a year as he helped us sell our one-bedroom apartment and find and purchase a three-bedroom for our expanding family.  Dealing with Digs was the only part of this tedious process that was always smooth and easy.  Dan helped us out so much on our buy-side – he was always immediately available for opinions, market data, and general thoughts on all apartments we considered.  We truly valued his helpful opinions and trusted him which is hard to come by in the NYC real estate market.  Sara was also such a pleasure to work with!  She went above and beyond for us during each step of the process, even when dealing with the minutia of the board package process.  I cannot imagine working with any other real estate firm in the city!  Working with Digs is such a no brainer.  On top of the excellent service, trustworthy agents, and outstanding experience — we also received a rebate when we closed on our new home!  Thank you Digs Realty!!

“Our home search lasted over a year, and we met Dan towards the end (maybe it only ended cause we met him). We worked with over 4 brokers through this time and we wish we had started with Dan.

We found his approach straightforward, honest, filled with expertise and valuable information. From the places we identified online, he right away pointed out which ones weren’t worth a walk through, pointed out the pros and cons of the places we did look at, some of which only an experienced eye and mind would know. He posed great questions to the sellers’ agents that straight away helped us filter the units/buildings that were going to be a match.

We don’t wish to buy another home anytime soon again, but, if you do, give Dan a call! There is no one else out there that does this as a passion and clearly has a natural penchant for real estate.”

“We bought our first home with Dan as our realtor. I found Dan through my colleagues’ referrals. What we needed was an agent who can explain things and tell us about potential issues that are not written in the listings; otherwise, we are perfectly capable of browsing the listings and going to open houses ourselves. Dan turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. He was always available to answer our questions on a short notice, and gave us useful feedback that directed and sped up our search. For example, in one case we were considering an apartment in Brooklyn, and he informed us that BQE repair plans might affect this apartment. This turned out to be true and an important factor in the future value of the property.

Prior to contacting Dan, we were looking at listings and going to open houses for about 1.5 years. Within 2 months of starting to work with Dan, we already found our home and placed an offer that was accepted. Digs Realty also took us through the purchase process, which, for a first-time home buyer and especially for NY coops, can be a very complicated process. I later heard from a co-op board member that they were impressed by how well-prepared and organized our co-op application package (put together by Digs Realty) was.

On top of all of this, on the closing day, we received a fat commission rebate check from Dan. This was also a significant benefit of working with Digs Realty, especially since the service we received was nothing less than what a full-commission agent provides. I recommend Dan to all my friends with no hesitation.”

“Rebecca and Dan are the ones to go to when you are ready to buy your property. They are very informative and willing to go beyond to help you. I wish I knew them decades ago. One thing for sure is they will be the only realtor for me from now on. Look no more, but hire them.”

“Digs and Rebecca were awesome to work with from start to finish! Rebecca worked with us to find our dream home. She was thorough, understood exactly what we were looking for, and extremely responsive. She is patient, honest, intelligent, and dedicated; we never felt pressured or rushed. She has an eye for details (construction, maintenance, condition of place), and is very knowledgeable about residences and the negotiation process. She was even able to provide lots of referrals from lawyers to mortgage bankers to designers! Bonus, was receiving a rebate that we wouldn’t have otherwise got from other realty teams. We LOVED working with Digs and would highly recommend them!”
