Working with Dani and her team is just a fantastic experience all around. From her friendly approach to making sure your questions are answered, to her thorough market analysis and top notch marketing material, to her very well organized execution on staging, managing bids, and helping you all the way through closing. I don't think we could have asked for more. Dani's preparation and quality of service made all the difference in selling our house quickly.

They made the whole experience smooth and seamless ...

We recently sold our home in Lexington through Dani and her team. They made the whole experience smooth and seamless. Right from the start Dani and Marcus were directly involved in planning process, guiding us to an appropriate price range and getting us help in fixing small things prior to selling. Sue Biederwolf and her team did a masterful job staging the house and getting it ready for the open house. Susan Sullivan was always ready to help us with all listing related activities and Sheri McGondel managed the whole closing process. Thank you Dani and team for making this a convenient and uneventful process for us! I am sure we will be in touch if we go through this process again.

Dani definitely went above and beyond her job. 5 stars really isn't enough to give her. ...

Dani definitely went above and beyond her job. 5 stars really isn't enough to give it to her. Dani's excellence is really solid and consistent. As first time home seller, we really couldn't be happier that we found Dani. Following are the things that I'm impressed the most about Dani:

  1. Expertise - We all know that the quickest way to know a person's level of knowledge is by asking questions. Every time Dani responded my questions with not only the answers but also the reasons. She takes data driven approach to have a depth understanding of the real estate market and provided us an honest analysis of our property. With the experience as a real estate agent and investor from a young age Dani gave us many helpful and realistic advice on repairing, staging, pricing, and open house timing. Her expertise and timely response makes her really reliable.
  2. Effective communication - Dani has so many clients at hands but I was amazed by how she was still able to respond to my emails and phone calls in a very timely manner. She proactively road-mapped every step of the process and had kept us informed about the status of the steps. It's not just about the deliver on time; it's the accuracy of her response and the knowledge she has that really makes the whole home selling process smooth.
  3. Care - This is where I really think Dani went above and beyond. Our property is located in one of the most demanding towns and its price was at the low end of the market. We were concerned at the beginning that Dani would pay more attentions to those million-dollar properties but the way Dani dealt with our property made us feel we owned a million-dollar home. Dani has been followed up the whole time!

We're very satisfied with the services Dani provided and highly recommend her. If we are going to buy or sell in the future, Dani will definitely be our first choice! Thank you Dani!

Dani Fleming and her team were knowledgeable, professional and experienced with the Lexington market. They staged and sold our house quickly. This was our 4th home sale, and Dani was by far the best realtor we have had. We plan to work with her again soon!

They do not make promises they deliver results ...

Well, what can I say about Dani and Marcus's team? They do not make promises they deliver results. We have purchased and sold homes before but none was as professional as our experience with Dani and Marcus. They started well before the sign was in the yard. Dani researched the area and gave us a detailed market survey. Not just a few "comps" printed off the internet. A real comparison of our property to properties that had recently sold. She gave us an honest assessment of our property, both its strengths and weaknesses as compared to the market. She also gave us an analysis of the pricing strategies and the timing of those properties entry into the market. This helped us to determine the proper pricing and the right time to come on the market. Marcus came and took pictures of our home. He came to our home even before we signed paperwork and took pictures before winter so the brochure pictures would show potential buyers or home in the best light. He came back after we prepared the home and took pictures, video and a 3D video of our home to place on the real estate sites as well as a Website they created just for our home. Judi and Sue (the staging team) came to our home and let us know what we could do to optimize the showing and when the time came they brought the finishing touches to bring our home alive for the potential buyers. As far as marketing, in addition to the website, pictures and the videos, Dani and Marcus have a database of potential buyers and blanketed them with information about our home. Many times in these types of situations one might feel a little lost, but Dani and Marcus have it down to a science. They sent us a detailed list and schedule of how things would unfold and it went like clockwork. We had multiple offers and a sales price well over asking. But it did not end there. Dani worked hard gathering information about the current market sales to prove our home was worth every penny and it appraised for the full offer price. If you want someone that will be there from start to finish I could not recommend anyone more highly than Dani Fleming's team.

Dani and her team were on top of every detail

Dani helped us buy our first house back in 2009. We really liked her personally and appreciated her pragmatic data-driven approach to real estate. When it came time to sell we knew we wanted to go with Dani. We were once again very impressed. Dani and her team were very helpful to us with getting the house ready; deciding on what work was worth doing, etc. Their staging really transformed the house. Above all, the entire process was extremely well organized. We always felt that Dani and her team were on top of every detail. In the end we had multiple offers and the house sold for more than we had anticipated. I would strongly recommend Dani for home purchase or sale. Our subsequent experience purchasing a condo in NYC has only made us appreciate Dani more.

Dani and her team are incredible! ...

Dani was our agent when we bought the house, and was our listing agent again when we put the house up for sale. She and her team are incredible! They have a very strong and impressive marketing package. Our house was video recorded with personal narration from Dani. The house was staged beautifully. And the open house impressed all of the neighbors. We were moving across the country in the mean time. Dani and her team took over the sales, the open house, the closing process, and saved us so much stress. We highly recommend Dani, and believe you will truly appreciation her professionalism, knowledge of the market, and unique touch on the marketing.

I have never met a better marketer ...

I have never met a better marketer ... Dani's attention to detail is phenomenal. The first time we met, Dani already knew my name; she had made the effort to look it up and then months later recognized my husband (who has a different last name) and drug my name from her memory banks! Her staff staged the house meticulously. They came back the second day to finish up, adding such minutia a tiny accent jar. The house was so beautiful, I couldn't believe it was mine. The video they made for the website included a Porsche driving up to the house and a labradoodle running up the walkway and into the house They took care of all the scheduling and paperwork, including assessments and inspections. I didn't have to lift a finger. Dani delivered the bids in person, complete with an analysis of each option. Dani's all-inclusive approach included all that as well as teaching us how to sell and price, photographing the house, and even making a video with descriptive narration. In addition to this full-service offering, Dani put her casual, warm, and open personality to work as she met with us, held the open house, and even invited me to her house for an after-sale coffee. The result? Our house sold the day after the open house for $110,000 over asking! That's more than 10% over the asking price.

They are extremely knowledgeable about the personality, schools and traffic patterns of the towns ...

Dani and Marcus helped us move to Massachusetts from New Jersey. They helped us to choose the towns that we wanted to focus on, and then we moved on to the houses. They are extremely knowledgeable about the personality, schools and traffic patterns of the towns. They showed us a large amount of homes in our price range. In the end, we found the perfect place and they helped us negotiate the price to take into account some repairs that we wanted to do. I would highly recommend them.

Guided us through the sale of our home in Arlington, MA with energy, enthusiasm, expertise ...

Dani Fleming and her team, especially her husband Marcus Collins, guided us through the sale of our home in Arlington, MA with energy, enthusiasm, expertise... and a good sense of humor! From the outset, we were favorably impressed with the research which backed up Dani's marketing strategy in the fast-moving Arlington market. We felt Dani's pricing was realistic and her predictions about timing and offers were "spot on"! Dani and Marcus both like houses and have renovated many houses themselves, so that they appreciated the efforts we made to prepare our house to go on the market and gave us helpful advice about which repairs would pay off. When it came time to stage our house, they were there with additional furniture and special touches which really made a difference. In marketing our home, Dani pulled out all the stops, utilizing both paper and technology, to insure that there was plenty of activity at both open houses. Dani did everything that she claimed she would do. The result? The day after our open houses, we had 8 offers to choose from, all above asking price! Dani followed up promptly when we had questions or concerns and her advice was always high-minded and highly ethical. We feel that we were fortunate to have such a talented and personable realtor as Dani Fleming to assist us with the sale of our home.

It was seamless and a completely painless experience because of Dani ...

In our 26 years of relocating around the US we have bought and sold 9 homes. The most recent sale, of our primary residence in Lexington, MA, was handled by Dani Fleming. I can't say enough about her professional services; she needs be teaching other real estate agents how to market a property. She knows the market intricately and presents a very detailed written report on it, with accompanying charts and graphs, and explains it orally in a very understandable way. When suggesting a sale price for your home, she doesn't just do a comparison of your home versus a couple other homes and throw a number out that is somewhere in between based on her "expertise and years of experience," as other agents had done; she compares it to many other homes and then details individually for each comparison home how your home differs from each of them and how that affects the price comparison. Again, this is in a report with photos of each of the many homes. This requires thoughtful analysis and she is willing to take the time to do it to help the buyer determine the best asking price. When selling the largest item we will ever sell, we did not want to trust an agent's "expertise and years of experience" without any facts: we wanted facts and she found them and gave them to us--in detail.

When we selected her to market our home, she did far more than we had ever seen done with any of our homes for sale. She and her team took countless photos and video footage and made it so easy for the buyer to know our house inside and out with more photos posted online than we had ever seen before, thirty or so. She set up a website just for the house. Her knowledge of the web based media and how to use it effectively provided us with an edge in selling our house. She even brought items over to our house to help us stage it. She and her team went above and beyond to ensure there were no snags: they were present at inspections and other necessary meetings that had to take place for the sale. In addition to her competence she is just a really pleasant, upbeat person and very nice to work with. Our house sold in one week and we closed in 6 weeks. It was seamless and a completely painless experience because of Dani.

I would recommend her highly.

If you're thinking about another Realtor don't. Hire Dani, you won't regret it ...

Before understanding our review of Dani you must first understand us. My wife, a professor, and myself an engineer, live in Lexington and are very particular and in general we usually end up being disappointed by people we work with. I can't think of the last time I wanted to write a positive review about someone we've hired so with that in mind you should take this take away just how special Dani Fleming is. Simply put, she exceeded all of our expectations and we could not imagine using anyone else to sell or buy a house. If you're thinking about another Realtor don't. Hire Dani, you won't regret it.

Before I go into why Dani is so great, I should also point out that we interviewed 4 highly recommended realtors from the area before deciding on Dani, all of which were good, but no Dani! So we did our homework and there are lots of other people who love Dani as well.

From our first meeting, when Dani and her husband Marcus showed up we were impressed. They come armed with a huge amount of market data and information. This isn't 'fluff' information like you might get from some realtors, this is very detailed information which helps educate you as a seller about how and when to sell your house. Her energy during that first meeting was amazing and it followed through during the whole process. During the initial interview process she walked through our house and pointed out various things we should do including where furniture should be moved. But just as importantly she told us what wasn't worth doing. We found the other realtors were more interested in making sure they had a customer locked in before giving actionable advice. For us the early information was critical because from the time we interviewed our first realtor to the time we sold our house was 2 weeks, so we had no time to waste.

Once we hired her she came in to stage our house. She brought in lots of lovely pieces which turned our usually out of control house into a work of art. I should also point out that not all staging is created equal. She really did a fabulous job, much nicer than some of the staging's I've seen in other houses. She used movers to move our bigger pieces of furniture so it would be easier for my wife and I (who have busy lives because of our jobs and kids). Next came the marketing of the house. Her photos were beautiful and unlike many realtors she took LOTS of photos which gives the people a great understanding of the house before ever showing up. She also shoots a real video. This isn't a video like many realtors which is just pictures stitched together. This is done with a videographer with Dani's voice talking about the features of the house. Next she set up a dedicated web-page for us and then had our house put up all over the web. Postcards were mailed around, etc. She also had great imagination about how to describe our house in words and sell its benefits. Most listing are rather bland where Dani's make you want to live in the house you are reading about. Basically there wasn't much she didn't do to market the house!

The main open house on the Saturday she had food as well, but most incredibly she brought a harpist to play at our house! This may seem over the top but it makes a memorable experience and one that makes people remember the house. We loved it! Sunday there was an open house and Tuesday final offers were accepted. We had friends show up at the open house and they reported that she was the perfect combination of engaging but not pushing and made the people coming through the house feel welcome.

Needless to say all of her marketing paid off and we got *WAY* over our asking price, significantly higher than we thought possible, even in this sellers market. And she did all this while putting up with my wife and I which is no small task.

We loved her so much that we are going to use her to sell our other house which is a rental property in Waltham. I can't wait for another great experience. In this house we're going to be already out of the area and Dani is going to help organize contractors and get the house fixed up to sell for us while we're not even there. Awesome!

As I said earlier, If you're thinking about another Realtor don't. Hire Dani, you won't regret it.

We have already recommended her to friends and colleagues who have had equally positive experiences ...

Dani is fabulous - she recently sold our condo in Arlington. She provided us with super advice about how to get the condo ready to present at openings, produced a wonderful video to go along with the photos, hosted open houses that welcomed over 100 sets of people (over a Sat and Sun of the same weekend,) walked us through the pros and cons of our seven offers, and oversaw all negotiations. Leading up to the actual closing and move, Dani kept us on track and on time with all of our details. She made a potentially overwhelming experience quite manageable!

We have already recommended her to friends and colleagues who have had equally positive experiences.

We have referred Dani to several of our close friends already; I wouldn't want to see them work with anyone else ...

Dani Fleming is fantastic to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable, provides excellent guidance, and is very caring and patient. While seeking to move from our 3 bedroom "starter home" into something a bit larger, she provided us with excellent advice throughout the process. Most comforting - all of her advice is based upon both: many years experience and volumes of current data. She was able to clearly articulate the pros and cons of various strategies to us throughout the process, such as: buy or sell first, what our current home may be worth, how to price it and why that amount, how to frame the most attractive offer you can on a new house, how to prepare and stage your current house, etc... We found Dani to be very patient, willing to talk and meet at anytime/anywhere, and extraordinarily knowledgeable. And her style suited us well too - acting as an informed adviser, but not in a pushy way at all. We have referred Dani to several of our close friends already so that they too can maximize their success in their buying/selling process; I wouldn't want to see them work with anyone else.

After asking around, we selected Dani to represent us. Wow, what good fortune ...

If you work with Dani, you will be pleased.

My wife and I have moved more than a dozen times in our lives. After each move, I was left wondering what, exactly, did our real estate agent bring to the table, and more importantly, why couldn't I function as my own agent?

This past year, my questions were answered. We moved to Bedford, MA from Detroit. After asking around, we selected Dani to represent us. Wow, what good fortune? Her biggest asset is that she listens. She actually took the time to get to know us and understand what each of our preferences were. Yes, including the two kids. I can't tell you how many times I've told an agent that swimming pools are a turn-off for us. We just don't appreciate them. And, then, inevitably, one of the first houses they show us has a pool!

Dani spent the time with us, listened, offered up her suggestions on the various towns. She really had good insight for each location including things like traffic patterns, schools and shopping. She also impressed me with her understanding of home construction. Many times, she asked questions about different aspects of the house that I would never have even thought of.

I feel like I want to go on, but most people probably don't even read this far. Let me just say that she knows her business, she's a lot of fun as a person, and for one of the very few times, I truly felt that she genuinely has our best interests at heart.

And, yes, now I finally know why I can't be a successful agent.

I tell people how fortunate we are for having Dani as our realtor in this stressful housing market of Boston ...

This is the 4th time we need to buy a house. I used to tell people how lucky we were for having Ricci as our realtor when we bought our 1st one. Now, I tell people how fortunate we are for having Dani as our realtor in this stressful housing market of Boston. She is the BEST of the best. We benefited so much from her great experience and knowledge. If it was not because of her strategies and recommendations, we may not be able to live in this lovely house. She listened to us, analyzed the data with us, and gave very valuable suggestions. When we sold our house before moving to Massachusetts, we had a realtor who has "high rank" locally. I admire her knowledge and skills. However, it was not a very pleasant experience, because she only answered the questions and replied to the emails which she thought are important in her opinion. Dani is different. She not only has good knowledge and high skills in the real estate business, she always has smiles on her face, replied all of my voice mails with very nice attitude and voice, always answered my emails even when she was on vacations. She is so lovely, so professional, so heartful, and so personal. I am one of those who believe in "word of mouth". We went to Dani based on my friend's recommendation and now I am highly recommending her. We had a very pleasant experience and very good results with Dani and I hope you have the same too. Good luck with your house hunting or selling!

Dani's marketing skills are superior and effective ...

Dani Fleming is a highly experienced realtor who sold our home within 1 month of placing it on the market. She is intelligent, honest and insightful. During our first meeting with Dani, she guided us through the house-selling process and explained each detail of her approach. She patiently answered all of our (many) questions. We always felt that our house was her priority. She was consistently available and responded to emails promptly. Dani's marketing skills are superior and effective; she included a dedicated website with numerous photos and a video, and she printed beautiful color pamphlets that were provided to visitors at the open house events. Dani conducted 3 open houses in addition to the initial broker's open house. (she provided refreshments and live music for our first public open house !) We are confident in our recommendation of Dani. In addition to her impressive professionalism, she is a delightful person to know and work with.>/p>

Working with Dani with such a tight schedule was a pleasure. She kept everyone on track. We love Dani!!!! ...

We met Dani almost 4 years ago when we needed to make a move due to a big promotion for my husband. We found out in March and needed to make the move by the end of May. Dani was very persistent in contacting us to get things started. She cleared her calendar for us on several house hunting trips and even had a welcome party for us at her house with her friends before we even found/close on our home. Working with Dani with such a tight schedule was a pleasure. She kept everyone on track, recommended a lawyer, banker, inspector, etc all things we needed while moving to a completely new location. Now 4 years later, we are close friends. She is so passionate about what she does that it spills over into her personal relationships - because of course buying a house is a very personal experience. We love Dani!!!!

We placed our trust in exactly the right team! Thanks again Dani and Marcus!! ...

Dani is a truly amazing agent, AND person! We moved up our "on the market" date by six months, the day she was headed out on her first vacation in 10 years! While packing her bags, she took my call, remained nonplussed by my seemingly insane demand, and advised us what to do over the next two weeks to ready the house for the photographer - the day after she came home. The house went up according to our new timeline, and in 5 days we had 6 offers! One of them was $50,000 OVER asking! (the house was not under-priced!) Dani knew exactly what strategy to use, where to market the house, and what we needed to do to stage it correctly. She and her team were alway professional, and kind. They stayed in touch - even while away. We placed our trust in exactly the right team! Thanks again Dani and Marcus!!

Without Dani, I would have gone insane during my search for, and purchase of, a home. My only regret now that this journey is done is that I will miss her! ...

Many times, when I have met a realtor or someone in the real estate business, I have not been able to trust them because they have felt fake to me. Yet, from the start I genuinely liked Dani and knew I could trust her. She is personable and approachable, yet extremely experienced, data-driven, and efficient.

We were looking for a property to purchase in Melrose, which is a hard town to find a home in, let alone a reasonably priced property. When we found a good fit, Dani helped us place an offer, then guided us through a bidding war where we emerged victorious! However, this property was a foreclosure, which meant a long, tough road to closing. Over the next several months of an often frustrating journey, every step of the way, Dani was responsive and on top of things. I have no doubt that the reason it went as smoothly as it did was due to her unique blend of genuine friendliness and straightforward communication.

Buying our first home was an emotional roller coaster. Without Dani, I would have gone insane during my search for, and purchase of, a home. My only regret now that this journey is done is that I will miss her! :)
