    Tyson gave Dan 5 stars out of 5
    Dan was incredibly responsive and was a key advisor throughout the sales process. I relied upon his counsel, his advice and his knowledge which was straightforward and thorough. And unlike other experiences I've had, he worked to represent my interests fully through the entirety of the transaction.

    Dan is very personable and will make you feel comfortable throughout the whole process. We have worked together through 2 successful purchases and a very successful and seamless sale. Dan not only knows the real estate market well, but has been in the community for a long time which can be very helpful. Dan comes highly recommended!

    Dan was great to work with from start to finish in the purchase of my new home. He is friendly, personable, knowledgeable of the local market and industry, timely, and genuinely looks out for your best interest.

    Dan is a one-of-a-kind realtor. We had a tough deal on our hands with an international seller and a difficult lending process, but he handled the choppy waters amazingly and is truly an expert at his craft. Although this was my first real estate purchase, I previously did preliminary work with a few realtors and brokers who stack nowhere near Dan's level of care, honesty, and expertise. I'd say I recommend him to everyone considering a real estate agent, but honestly I want him available for all my next deals -- he's that good. Dan's the man!

    Dan is not your 'typical' real estate agent. He is very professional but without all of the drama. He knows his stuff. He tells you what he's going to do and then he does it. Very good negotiator and knows how to get a deal done. If you want someone to talk to for hours, he may not be your guy but if you want your house sold quickly by a professional, he's your man.

    Joe gave Dan 5 stars out of 5
    It was a real pleasure working with Dan. I had never put a house up for sale before, so I needed step-by-step guidance, and frequent updates on possible sales and other details. The sale was also complicated by a letter from the City of Oxford requiring the house owner to hire a contractor to refurbish the concrete curbs and driveway connections to Acorn Circle. When the first serious offer came in, Dan managed to get the buyer to hire the contractor and pay for the repairs. The house was sold and closing occurred in a matter of weeks after it was put on the market. The whole experience was a lot easier and pleasant than I could have imagined, and I feel fortunate to have had Dan for my real estate agent.

    Dan was exceptionally helpful. I needed to sell my home from out of state. He helped me to navigate 5 critical issues that I could not have solved without him. He managed to sell my home in the fraction of the time expected. The sale would not have happened without him.

    Terry gave Dan 5 stars out of 5
    Dan was able to find a buyer for our rental property in less than 1 WEEK. The Story: We attempted to sell this house ourselves and wasted months. A close friend and realtor said he would sell the house BUT that we should look for a local realtor in Oxford first. We knew Dan and we had some knowledge of his expertise. WOW, there is no substitute for a true professional. Dan made the entire process seamless. From setting a price, creating a list of inspection gotchas right through the final paperwork including assistance with transferring utilities, Dan was on top of every aspect of bringing this transaction to a very positive conclusion. It was a truly smooth and worry free experience. We would highly recommend Dan Umbstead as your realtor.

    As first-time home buyers, my fiancee and I were unsure how to navigate looking for and purchasing a home. Dan was extremely helpful every step of the way, from helping us know what to look for and avoid to negotiating to buying. He invested his time and expertise into helping us find the home that is perfect for beginning our life together. We give him five stars without hesitation and recommend him to anyone!

    Sharon gave Dan 5 stars out of 5
    We spoke to another realtor before deciding that Dan was the one to sell our home. The other realtor didn't act like he cared about selling anything, let alone our precious home. That's when I called Dan. He is upbeat, very positive, and he is willing to work to sell a home. He communicated with us all along, and I was thrilled that he is internet savvy and all of the papers were signed electronically except the final closing, which went smoothly and quickly. Dan brought the entire office through the house, so I knew that there were really several people knowledgeable about it, not just Dan. I recommend Dan with the utmost confidence that he'll take great care of you!

    Theresa gave Dan 4 stars out of 5
    Dan is a very personable realtor who really cares about his clients. He knew a lot about the local area, and was not afraid to ask questions and find out answers to things that he wasn't familiar with. His greatest asset was his responsiveness. If I called with a question, he always responded within a reasonable amount of time. He always took the time to answer my questions, no matter how trivial they seemed to be. He was also very up-to-date on the latest techniques used in the real estate business. I would recommend him to others.

    Selling a College Town

    2019 Started slow like 2018 ended, very low inventory. My experience has been investors looking to buy multiple house but not wanting what is already listed. So, I reached out to several property owners to see if they may have an interest in selling bundles of houses. I'm closing on the last of a 6 house deal tomorrow. Prices are high for investment properties!

    Selling a College Town

    I've been selling real estate primarily in the Oxford, Ohio area since 2013 when I retired from the police department. With a major university in our community (Miami University) I've watched the evolution of off campus student housing. In 2003 my wife Kelly and I purchased our first income property in the northern end of Oxford's Mile Square (In the early history of Oxford there was what we now call "the Original Mile Square" that abuts Miami's Campus), Close to Miami's Campus but several block...
