I would give Dan Marusin 10 gold stars if I could. He certainly deserves it! My Surrey properties had been sold to developers for condos so I was in need of an honest, understanding, knowledgeable real estate professional to help me find my new and last home. I found more than that in Dan.
I am up in years and didn't know any reputable Realtors but I know what I wanted in a new home. I could have phoned the Real Estate Board but did not want to go that route so this month (Late September/18) I searched elsewhere and found Dan's name on a For Sale sign in Lander, B.C. The house looked OK but I wanted to see the inside. Dan could do this for me but when I called him and told him what I was looking for, he said this would not be the house for me (although he would show it if I wished) but that he would like to send me a list of homes not necessarily listed by him that more suited my needs and I could choose all of them to view.
I fell in love with one of the houses Dan showed. And then I watched and listened while Dan wisely and professionally negotiated a deal on my behalf which included getting the home at a much lower price than listed. Mild-mannered and easygoing Dan was on my side all the way and detailed everything for me from Contract of Purchase to what-to-do next, dates and times and locations of meetings. He even offered to pick me up in Surrey for meetings in Ladner, I very much appreciated his organizational abilities, along with his many other natural(hardworking, compassionate, generous, kind) and business skills.
Even after I took possession of my new home on October 5/18, Dan still checks to see if he can help me with anything such as fencing ideas which I have been working on and other questions related not only to my new home but also to sales of large items in my "old" home. He takes care of his clients to the end and I feel that I am not a client now but also a friend. As far as I am concern, he is a 10 Gold Star Realtor and I will always recommend him to anyone in the future.
