Client Testimonials

Dan Alden has handled both sides of buying and selling houses for us here in the Berkshires. As a former New York based professional, my wife and I became accustomed to a certain level of competence and expertise whic h I felt might not be readily available in this region. What a surprise and pleasure it was to find Dan. He was and is indispensable to us for all our real estate endeavors in this area. Dan is a sophisticated advocate and ally with transactional skills and considerable local knowledge. He is also an attentive listener and is able to translate thoughts into action. Dan provides an "extra level of service" not easily found in any geographic area. He is a solid professional. We have recommended Dan to many of our friends and will continue to do so. - William R. Burger, Phd.

I first met Dan Alden through his writing in a local real estate publication. His articles on various real estate topics came across as honest, intelligent, and knowledgeable. So when it came time to seek out a realtor, the choice was clear. Throughout the process of buying a property, Dan was everything his writing had suggested and more. He was patient and respectful, listening to my needs but not afraid to protect me from potential mistakes. As I was buying a modest piece of land, I thought that I must be the least important client he had at the time, yet he gave me his full attention and shared his expertise generously. Dan Alden is the consummate professional and an important asset to the Southern Berkshires. - Josephine Halvorson

Words are hard to find to accurately describe the sense of appreciation we have for the work you accomplished in selling our house. Your recognition of the stress we were experiencing and a bility to meet all the marketing demands with competence and compassion were truly outstanding. - James & Barbara Shiminski

As second home buyers new to the Berkshires, Dan gave us invaluable advice on the market. He did not push properties on us but took the time to find us the right fit. He was a delight to work with. - Jane and Charlie Johnson

We worked with Dan on our property search and he was the broker for the home that we ultimately purchased. He is incredibly passionate about his work, his clients and the Berkshires- one could not be in better hands. Throughout the process Dan was proactive, professional and full of great information and advice. His energy and passion are inspiring and make him so great at what he does. - Michael Alper and Bruce Moore, Red House Design

Being from out of town, we were extremely lost when it came to buying a cabin in the Berkshires. We contacted Dan Alden with a haphazard list of homes we randomly found on the internet. He met with our famil y, listened to our wants and needs, and helped us hone in on the perfect vacation home for our family. Dan so clearly has a passion for the Berkshires, pointing out activities and locales that our family couldn't help but get excited about. With the same enthusiasm, he walked us through the sales process, providing excellent recommendations of local insurers, lawyers, inspectors, and contractors. Almost two years later, we still contact Dan when we need a trusted opinion and a friendly voice. - Ian Minushkin
