Dan was exceptional. His knowledge of the market and the ever-changing market conditions as well as a strong relationship with the various persons within the transaction allowed the Offer and subsequent Escrow to move effortlessly to Closing. Rob M
Dan Rocks! We moved quickly and he was guiding us at every step of the way. Would work with him again
This is my third transaction with Dan Gallagher. He is professional and thorough in every aspect of the buying and selling of real estate. He is ethical, and treats all individuals with the utmost respect and consideration.
He always goes above and beyond to showcase his listings and prepare them for viewing. His marketing skills are superb and his recommendations are always thoughtful and designed to improve the visibility of the property.
I highly recommend Dan!
Dan was very knowledgeable about the area. He had the tools at hand to quickly build a picture of comparable sales. He was helpful at every phase of the purchase from research to offer, from offer to close, and helpful in numerous ways even after the close. The team at the Wine Country Group was very organized, helpful, and timely with information or reminders every step of the way. We look forward to more interactions with Dan and the team in the future and would highly recommend them. Randy and Nedda
You were so instrumental in making the sale of my home go smoothly. Your professionalism, knowledge, attention to detail and tireless efforts coupled with my OCD personality made for a win-win combination!
I felt very protected and cared for during the process especially when you made the trip to San Francisco to be with me when I signed documents at the Title Company.
I'm your fan!
All the best,
Barbara S. (a repeat client)
I would only recommend Dan Gallagher as the go-to realtor if you want exceptional personal professional service. He is very intuitive and "gets it" of your wants and needs in finding that special property, even in a difficult market situation which we were in. He worked, in our opinion, tirelessly until he found the perfect property for us. He far exceeded my expectations as to how much time and energy a realtor should expend on a client. WELL DONE Dan and Thank You.

I have known Dan for many years even before he entered the real estate industry. I have always held him in high esteem and trust his business acumen and professionalism.
He handled our purchase transaction with the utmost attention to detail and client-focused service. His positive interface with the seller's agent only enhanced the experience. I would rate his performance as "The Best" I have ever experienced in the real estate realm.
DAN, THANK YOU! -- Larry G.
"Excellent" is too tame a word to describe our experience with Dan. -- Sharon & Higgins
For anyone looking to purchase or sell a home in Sonoma, we were very fortunate to meet Dan Gallagher and his dog, Gracie, last summer at his open house listing. He was very professional and conscientious. We decided to contact him this year to help us find our dream vacation, soon to be retirement, home.
Even though inventory was low in 2012, Dan scoured all the listings to identify homes that would be appropriate for us to drive up to see so as not to waste our time. Finally, we identified a home that had the right location, size and bones - but it had not yet been listed. Dan took the initiative and did all the legwork to contact the current owners and secure a first viewing. Dan has a great knowledge base of properties that have sold in Sonoma. With this knowledge and his real estate tools, we were able to make an acceptable offer to purchase our dream home. Dans assistance did not end there. His follow-through and management of the process made for a very smooth transaction close. He continues to be an extremely valuable resource for ALL services in the Sonoma area.
Dan displays a strong personal commitment to successfully finding the right home it is not just a transaction to him. As a result, Dan always made us feel that he was our advocate and that he had our back - we could trust him implicitly. As with many of his previous clients, we now consider him to be one of our dearest friends in Sonoma.

One of the most knowledgeable and conscientious realtors we have ever experienced, that is how we would describe our recent experience working with Dan Gallagher of Wine Country Group! He represented us on our most recent home sale and new purchase. He increased the exposure of our advertised home for sale by listing it in several different markets and made himself available to show our horne to all interested parties, often on short notice. Dan was very perceptive when speaking with potential buyers and was able to match their interests to our homes assets in very subtle ways. In much the same way I he was able to listen to our needs and preferences in order to show us available homes that met most of our desires. One of Dans traits that worked particularly well for our relationship was his ability to listen to our needs and to provide us with answers to our numerous questions during the selling and buying process. We highly (and often) recommend Dan Gallagher to those we meet who happen to be looking to sell or buy a home. He is a consummate real estate professional and a real joy to work with!

I learned one thing from my father. "That is that you cannot force anything in life". I knew that I contracted with the best realtor. You are very hard working and get the job done! Just think what an accomplishment it is to close for your client a buy and sell in the same week ... Especially in these times! So thank you very much for your very hard work and you doing all the worrying! Thanks again Dan for all your hard work.
We were so excited when you presented an offer on our house and better yet, for asking price! You remained professional from start to finish ensuring our home was marketed and shown often. Thank you for all your special efforts in the sale of our home.
--- Marci and Dan
We have nothing but praise for the professional manner in which our property was marketed and presented. The house was positioned well in the market and priced competitively. Four solid offers were presented within a few days of open house. We would like to thank our real estate agent, Dan Gallagher for his professional attitude and advice, and for the successful sale of our property.

As a buyer purchasing a house in a new area and from a long distance I especially appreciate Dan Gallagher's professionalism and attention to detail. Throughout the process of offering on two different properties, Dan maintained a calm demeanor in situations that were fraught with problems and difficult personalities. He is very sensitive to a buyer's likes and dislikes and is a reliable filter for properties that suit the buyer's
Dan's background in corporate sales serves him well in real estate sales as he brings a very professional sensibility to the transaction. Dan's persistence in making sure all of the inspections and deadlines were met, kept the process moving to a smooth close of escrow. He is an invaluable resource for qualified people in the local area for all aspects of the real estate transaction, from inspection to mortgage brokers to escrow companies.
In addition, it is a pleasure to spend time with Dan and to share in his enjoyment of the beautiful areas of Sonoma and Napa that he represents. I feel I have gained not only a house, but also a wonderful new friend by doing business with Dan.
My wife and I worked with Dan Gallagher in the recent purchase of our home here in Sonoma.
During our interviews Dan was the only realtor who took time to get to know us and our personalities. Only then did he delve into the specifics of the house and property we were interested in buying.
We appreciated the fact that Dan showed us only those properties that fit into our guidelines of location, architecture, size, and price. For the several months of our search Dan kept us up to date on all the new properties that came on the market. When we put a bid on our new home he worked very well with the sellers realtor to insure a smooth purchase process. Dan has also been very helpful in recommending architects and contractors for work that needs to be done on our new home.
For us, as important as being an excellent realtor Dan has been a great resource for us as new residents of Sonoma.
--- Dmitry and Mimi Makowsky
Thanks so much, Dan, for doing a great job helping us find and purchase a home in Sonoma. Having owned our own real estate company in Oregon, we have high standards for any Realtor we work with; you came through with flying colors! We especially appreciated your professionalism, your thoroughness in all details, and your calm counsel in what turned out to be challenging negotiations. We knew whenever you said, "I'll take care of that," you would...and in a timely manner, too! We are happy to recommend you to others, knowing they'll get top-notch help from a dedicated professional.
--- Linda & Tom
Dan Gallagher was a very helpful agent for us. He knows the market, is honest, direct, personable and easy to work with. The depth of service he and his agency provided resulted in a stress free sale of our home.
--- Ted and Charlene Virts
I want to express my/our gratitude for your care and guidance during the purchase and sale procedures. What a gift to find you for this time of change. Your company should understand what a privilege and asset you give to Better Homes and Gardens reality group.- Jim D. & Sharon D.
Working with Dan could not have been better a better experience!
Dan was a lifesaver for me and my Dad. I am so appreciative of all he did for us. He is a real pleasure to work with as he is very professional and has extremely high standards. Following his suggestions, and working together we were able to get the house prepared to nearly perfect condition. He had solid research to back up his pricing and marketing recommendations. His read on the market was spot on. He went out of his way to do "informal" research in the neighborhood and earned the respect of the neighbors which was so important. The result? First showing, asking price, all cash offer within 48 hours of listing. We literally could not have asked for more. Truly remarkable in a challenging market. He is a genius and a true gentleman.
I met him at an open house almost two years ago but lost his business card. I remembered his company though and researched online until I thought I found him. I got the wrong person, but he was kind enough to pass my messages along to Dan and I was thrilled to have found him. I am glad I did. - Douglas H.
