Testimonials

"We cannot say enough wonderful things about Dan Bowden. He was amazing to work with as we searched for our first home. He has an incredible wealth of knowledge in the housing industry and helped us not only pick out a home we loved, but pick out a home that was a good investment. Like most people, we had an extensive wish list and Dan knew just the neighborhoods to show us that helped satisfy most of our desires. Dan was so patient with us and never made us feel pressured to buy a home. He also was extremely accessible via email and phone and answered questions for us promptly. I know he had a ton of clients during our search for a home, but he had a way of making us feel like we were the only ones he was helping. Dan is probably one of the best in his field and will be our first choice of realtor if we ever buy a property in the future!"

"Dan did a great job helping us find a home in Madison. He was very knowledgeable about the different neighborhoods that make up this great city. In the end it was him who found us a great home. We had pretty much seen every home for sale in our price range in our ideal neighborhood, feeling somewhat underwhelmed by the options on the table. Dan decided to take us outside of the area we were looking, although unsure we agreed. As a result we now love our new home which we may have never looked at had Dan not been our agent. We would work with him again as well as refer him to our friends and family."

"This was our first home buying experience and had little to no knowledge of the process. Dan was recommended to me by a mortgage loan officer, and when we first meet with Dan I could tell he was experienced and well versed in the market and also really liked his straight forward approach. He walked us through every step and made us feel like his only clients making time for us every time. When we found the house for us he made the process as painless as it could be. After a few go rounds, Dan even was working on the deal for us while attending the 2015 Badger Semifinal game, we got an accepted offer. Dan made the closing process go very smoothly and was there for us every step of the way. I would recommend Dan to anyone; his experience and knowledge make him great for buying or selling. In a couple years we plan to move on from our starter home and my first call will be to Dan."

"We chose Dan Bowden to sell our condo after interviewing several Madison-area realtors. Dan proved to be an excellent choice. He offered us great advice in preparing our property for sale. Within a few days the condo was marketed in a number of places with great photos and a video tour. We had multiple offers on the condo within a few weeks and were happy to accept an offer that was fair and reasonable. This offer had a contingency however this did not stop Dan from seeking out other potential buyers. In the end the contingency was removed when a competing offer was received and the original buyers decided they really wanted the property.

Dan was a pleasure to work with and was available whenever we needed to speak with him about the property and the offers that were received. We will use Dan’s services and expertise again when we are ready to sell our home, as we relocate in approximately another year. We could not be happier having worked with Dan."

"Dan was so helpful throughout the entire home purchasing process. He was never once pushy. He walked through our house with us several times and helped identify areas that we could improve, areas that we might want to be careful of and ideas that we could eventually fix to improve our home value. We found him so helpful and have since recommended him to anyone we know that is looking for a home in the Madison area. He helped us find exactly what we were looking for, in the right neighborhood and in the right price range, and we couldn't be more thankful for his help!"

"I wanted to say thank you for everything that you did for me and my daughter in helping us buy our first home. I know that it wasn't a “normal sale” besides the mortgage we had to meet grant program guidelines, but no matter what issues came up you never made us feel that it wasn't any different. I know that you went above and beyond for us many times to make this whole process a lot less scary for us. I knew when I asked you to help us that you would take care of us and you did. I have heard many stories that others have said about buying a house but you always made us feel as if we were your top priority and I thank you for that.

We love our new condo and if it wasn't for you we would not be in it today. Thanks again for everything that you did. I know that if anyone asks me who to call it will definitely be you."

"We worked with Dan last winter to find a home before our lease ran out. He was tireless in providing us with options that met out requirements, and he was also very flexible in scheduling viewings. We were able to look at dozens of houses in a short amount of time, due to Dan’s dedication. He was also extremely knowledgeable about home construction and the relative merits of individual neighborhoods. We found a home we loved within a month. I have already recommended Dan to others who are looking to buy or sell. He will do a great job for you whether you have previous experience or not; you can trust him to give his best."

"We were relocating from Virginia to Wisconsin and did not have a Realtor. Dan was recommended by our son. Dan Listened to our needs for our new home, ie. square footage, price range, type of house, neighborhood and area of town. He found us homes all over the area that met these criteria. He enrolled us in the MLS website that sent emails as new listings became available that fit our needs. We were on a tight schedule and travelling between Virginia and Wisconsin, so it was important that we not waste time seeing homes that we would not purchase. Dan arranged for us to see houses and also revisit when needed. He pointed out any potential issues in each home and provided an accurate estimate of any potential repair. Dan fully explained the whole purchasing process from start to finish, including the inspection , loan closing and provided an easy to follow list of the contingency deadlines in the offer and when they needed to be completed. It was a smooth process. He also provided a list of quality contractors, inspectors and financing sources, if needed, but did not pressure us to pick anyone. He attended the closing with us to provide any assistance if needed. He followed up after the purchase to see if there were any unresolved issues. If we have any friends interested in purchasing a home in the Madison area we would recommend Dan. He provides the expertise required to assist a buyer, with integrity and professionalism and without high pressure."

"Dan was very patient with us in the process of selling our home and finding us our perfect new home. He advised, wisely and persisted in every process to make the house sell. He was constantly in touch, allowing us to make the decisions that were necessary. I would recommend Dan to anyone who wants to buy or sell. He knows what it takes to get the job done."

"Dan Bowden is wonderful to work with. He showed infinite patience with our questions and kept us informed of everything we needed to know. He is friendly, easy to talk to, very knowledgeable and has the experience that is such a necessity for the purchase of home. He never talked up or down to us, but always made sure that we understood his answer(s) and the information he was bringing. We have used Dan's expertise on both sides of a real estate transaction--as buyers and sellers. He has always made us feel like friends more than customers, and always with a sense of professionalism and experience working for us. He has always gone the "extra mile" and beyond when it comes to service. One could not ask for a better person to work with throughout the buying and selling process--from offer to inspection to closing we had every question of concern answered promptly and accurately. We would recommend Dan Bowden without any hesitation or reservation to anyone who is buying or selling property."

"We listed our Mother's house with Dan last Fall after having it listed with another agent for fourteen months and to our surprise, he had it sold for us within eight weeks.  We appreciated his nearly daily updates and input as to what he felt should be done with the property to make it sell.  Looking back on the whole experience, we feel that if we had listed the property with Dan to start with, that it would have sold in no time at all.  We felt that Dan really worked hard for us and were truly interested in moving this sale along.  Also, the closing went very well and Dan had covered all aspects of the sale in advance which definitely made everything fall into place in a businesslike manner.

We will certainly refer Dan to all our friends in the future. "

"In preparing to sell our beloved North Madison home, we interviewed 8 different realtors looking for the right combination of experience, intelligence, innovation, and personality. We found all of these traits, and more, in Dan Bowden. He's one heck of a guy, who really knows the market and how to best help his customers. We are indebted to Dan for all his hard work and dedication to selling our home."

"This was my first experience selling a home, and I tried selling my home through a FSBO program thinking it would be easy. Instead, after some initial interest, my house sat unsold for 6 months.  After a friend recommended Dan to me, I saw everything he offered that I just didn't have the time or resources to do myself.  Professional photography, aggressive marketing...and an accepted offer less than 1 month after my listing.  Then, he guided me through what can be the most difficult part of the process, the period between the offer and closing.  I never would have had the patience and time to deal with all the unexpected details, but Dan made sure everything was on track.  Thanks to his professionalism and easy-going nature, I went from listing to closing in less than 2 months.  Thanks, Dan!"

"In looking for our first home, we wanted to make sure that we had a good Realtor.  What we ended up with in Dan was an excellent Realtor!  He helped educate us on the housing market and paid attention to detail in the houses he showed us. He never pressured us, and was very patient with our erratic schedules.  When the perfect house finally came along, he made the process quick and easy.  We will continue to work with Dan in the future and highly recommend him to everyone!"

"My husband and I worked with Dan last year to buy a new home. We ended up being in quite a time frame crunch, but it all worked out in the end due to Dan's hard work for us.  He is extremely flexible for showings and meetings which was a huge help to us as we sometimes do not work the most convienent hours! We ended up looking at over 20 houses, with not a complaint from Dan about our pickiness! We have been in our new home since September, and are pleased with our purchase. We do plan to move again in a couple years, and wish to use Dan again if he will have us! Thanks again Dan for everything...."
