Hey Dan, tell us about your house.
“My house resides in one of the earliest blocks in Conshohocken and built by Alan Wood of Alan Wood Steel Company. I suspect it was built between 1875 and 1900, and was likely a rental property for company executives. The house was generally in its original form up until the year 2000, although brick exterior was covered with stucco and wood trim capped and painted. Prior to that the only bathroom resided in the basement portion of an addition added around 1950 or. Before then the renters or owners used an outhouse. A brick lined pit remains covered in the back yard. The 1950s era addition was razed in 2000 for a larger addition that incorporates the kitchen, master bedroom and finished basement bedroom. All electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and drywall was replaced throughout the house.”
His mother who passed several years ago from ovarian cancer left him some beautiful ceramic hand made pieces- she was a talented artist! And, actually, so was his grandfather. The house is filled with handmade wood tables and benches.
What is it about real estate that you love so much?
“The amazing architecture and varying style of homes. The neighborhoods in and surrounding the city of Philadelphia. I also enjoy meeting and getting to know my clients and sharing each of our experience and knowledge when it comes to home construction, renovations, and fair market value.”
How about when you’re not selling houses? What’s fun?
“You will always find me doing something as I can’t sit still for very long. I play soccer and practice yoga for exercise. I enjoy working on projects around my own home and helping others with their own. I’m also destined to be a mechanic and work on cars, especially the classics which I enjoy as a hobby. I do my best with a break or two during the year to vacation and spend time with family and friends. I especially enjoy craft microbrews and good coffee as reward for hard work.”
“I recommend sellers conduct a pre-inspection. Most buyers have an inspection done, and a seller will be better prepared if they foresight on any issues. Many deals fall apart upon inspection contingency negotiations.”
If you’ve met Dan more than once, you have likely noticed his shoes. These are not his only pair of red sneaks.
What brought you to Coldwell Banker Preferred?
“I have been with Coldwell Banker Preferred since July of 2014. I was associated with them much earlier as they sold my mother’s house and I began company training prior to having my real estate license. I enjoy the company culture and respect the experience managers overwhelmingly willingly share at all of our regional offices.”
