Buyer

Dane Soderberg has worked with me on three different properties. The first one was a summer rental where we negotiated a house that I was interested in renting. He was always available for any issues that came up throughout my stay and helped with any issues that arose. His staff were knowledgeable and helpful and friendly and polite. Even when I called him after hours he was there to help. I was so impressed with his company I chose him for the next rental I was looking for which was a long-term rental Again he bent over backward to help me find the right location. It took a while and when we finally found the place he again helped with any issues that arose. I then looked for a place to buy with him and as I went around looking at multiple homes and didn't see anything I liked he was always patient and happy to go out one more day to look again reassuring me that sometimes it takes a while to find the perfect home but not to give up it was out there. There were times when I almost settled for a second-best and it was Dane who would say if your not 100% happy don't settle you'll find it. Sure enough, after many trips out looking about one day, I walked onto a property and shouted this is it! I was so excited. Dane asked me multiple times are you certain this is the one. I was. So we went through the process of paperwork and contingencies. But Dane warned me if the price was going to be too high he would not encourage me to buy it. He wanted me to be happy but also looked at the financial reality of what the home was worth. Needless to say, I am living in the house of my dreams and I am so happy every day that I have found my little piece of heaven on earth. Dane is the most honest patient reality broker I have ever meet. He is diligent honest fun kind and extremely professional. We have stayed in contact over the years and I would never use anyone else. Dane is the only Realtor I would ever use for any of my family members and I have recommended him to all my friends. Everyone that I know who has used him has said the same thing. Dane is one of a kind.

Seller

Working with Dane in the listing and selling of our house was a positive experience in all respects. Dane displayed a high level of expertise in all phases of the process. Dane understood the local market and the house was correctly priced and the listing generated multiple offers. His evaluation of the various offers and subsequent negotiations reflected knowledge, experience, and professionalism. Dane was very responsive to our needs throughout the process. I enjoyed working with Dane and would recommend him without reservation to anyone interested in using his services in the selling of their property.

Buyer

Dane is a phenomenal agent who helped me find the perfect place to call my home. He is a pleasure to work with and truly knows how to listen to exactly what you are looking for. His professionalism, thoughtfulness, and knowledge of the buying and selling process are unmatched. There is truly no one else I would trust as much as Dane to help me buy or sell a property.

Seller

Dane has now assisted me for the eighth time in the last ten years. He has successfully navigated various markets and is always adapting to the changes in the environment. Whether he is assisting me with a purchase to beat multiple offers or selling a property and creating multiple offers, Dane is successful. I trust him implicitly as a person and his professional expertise is unmatched. He is respected by other agents, which matters in making for a smooth transaction and he constantly knows about off-market opportunities due to his lifelong sphere of influence within the local community. He is a kind and efficient communicator and is always reachable. Always.

Seller

My family has worked with Dane on 3 real estate transactions in the past 24 months, and we felt compelled to write him a review given how exemplary Dane and his team have been throughout all three processes. It's rare to find someone in real estate that intimately understands what true client service really is. Dane talked us out of more homes than I can even recall (on the buy-side) easily demonstrating his objectivity. He counseled us on what adds value, and what does not (on the sell-side). He has a swath of high-quality tradesmen at your disposal (if you need them). But these are just the minor qualities that we never forgot (I say that in the past tense but will only use him moving forward). His objectivity, professionalism, and client-first mentality were omnipresent through all 3 transactions. I'm inherently cautious of writing online reviews about professionals given how many people pay services to write fictitious reviews, but this is one of the few times I felt compelled to confidently write a glowing review about someone. Whether it's a Dentist, Attorney, Financial Advisor, or other professionals, I would usually say, interview 3 or 5 and find the one that best suits your needs. This is the one professional where I know each/every person that uses him will benefit in a multitude of ways. Dane, thank you for your integrity and support. Our family is truly blessed to call you a trusted advisor. Our platitudes reflect how much we appreciate you.

Buyer

Dane grew up in La Jolla and has been helping people find homes here for many years. He practically knows every neighborhood, every street, and every home and provides a comprehensive view of the area. He helped my husband and I find our ideal home by listening to what we were looking for and by focusing on our preferences. He provided his honest opinion and become our trusted advisor. Many brokers are focused on getting the transaction done with no regard to much else. Not Dane. He first made sure we found a home that we would enjoy and love before turning his attention to closing the deal. This made a big difference for us and we appreciated it very much. Dane also found two long-term rentals for us that fit our requirements and worked out very well. Dane is an excellent negotiator. His calm and professional style helped with the dialog and his attention to detail was extremely valuable. Dane also has a broad range of capable professionals in his network who helped us during the inspection and post-closing. I highly recommend Dane and will be happy to provide more information if needed.

Seller

I would absolutely recommend Dane in his professional capacity to anyone in need of a broker, regardless of the circumstances; in fact, I already have. His attention to essential details, commitment to each client as an individual, as well as their role as seller/buyer, his knowledge, ease, and professionalism are all bar none and impeccable. There were a number of shifts and complexities, as typically exist in these types of transactions, and he handled each with grace, fortitude, success, and importantly, zero pressure on me as his client. I have extremely high expectations, they do not waiver, and there was not one moment I questioned whether or not choosing Dane was the best decision.

Cameron B.

Dane went above and beyond without question throughout our home purchase with Compass. He is a standup guy who maintains professionalism, integrity and commitment is unmatched. I would only consider using Dane for the future and absolutely will be recommending him to anyone I come into contact with that is in need of a competent realtor.

Buyer

Dane was our buyer's agent in a very (!) competitive Del Mar real estate purchase. From start to finish, Dane was a consummate professional. He knew how to optimize our time (while he obsessed over details on our behalf). It is abundantly clear that he has the personal relationship, work ethic, and market knowledge that gave us an advantage.

Buyer | Seller

Dane was excellent to work with! He was our buyer's agent and also the seller listing agent on the purchase of our home in Rancho Santa Fe. He was extremely responsive to our calls and emails. Dane was also a master of the purchase/sale process and assisted us, as needed, through every step. He was an excellent negotiator, very ethical, and the ultimate professional. I highly recommend Dane as both a buyer or listing agent.
