Dan Anderson took the time to get to know my husband and me while we were searching for a lake home in Minnesota. He listened carefully to our preferences and scheduled viewings based on our likes and dislikes. We appreciated Dan’s low-key style. When we viewed properties, Dan gave my husband and me ample time to privately explore and talk without pressure. Dan genuinely wanted to get us into a property that would meet our needs. When we were ready to make an offer on a property, Dan was a skillful yet realistic negotiator. We are thrilled with the property we purchased and grateful to Dan for leading us to it. We unequivocally recommend Dan Anderson to buyers looking for lake properties in Minnesota. – Bruce & Gail Wold

Dan was honest and very knowledgeable about the area. He listened to us when we told him the kind of home we were interested in and did not waste our time by showing us houses that we would not be interested it. We found our new home the first time out! – Bonnie & Howard Thompson
We are very pleased with the way Dan Anderson handled our purchase of a lake home. He was prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable. He followed up on any and all concerns. He was our advocate throughout the process. This isn’t always true of Realtors we’ve dealt with in the past. – Gene & Mary Jane Schultz
“My husband and I found Dan through his Internet site Lakehomes.com when we were surfing for a lake cabin on a Sunday evening. There was a listing we were interested in and he promptly returned our inquiry with a phone call. Dan pursued the information we requested and set up a prompt viewing of the property. He sent us information on comparable properties that suited our priorities so that when we viewed our our original choice we could feel confident in our offer. We appreciated Dan’s accessibility, competence and honesty throughout our entire real estate transaction. Dan went above and beyond to travel hours to our final closing then to personally deliver documents to the out of town Title Company. We would recommend Dan to friends and family!” – Doug & Julie Kuehn
I work out of town and saw that buying was actually cheaper than renting. Short on time, we contacted Dan to help with the search for a condo. I was able to find a place myself on Craigslist, but where Dan really showed his value was in organizing the transaction. He did a great job of identifying the perfect offer price and handling all of the negotiations with the seller. He is very familiar with the market in the entire lakes area and we are sure that the price he negotiated was lower than we would have gotten ourselves even after his fee was included. Beyond helping with the price, we are very impressed with how he guided us through the process and kept in contact with all parties (us, the seller, the bank, the appraiser, and the title company) enabling us to close in just one month. There is no way we would have been able to pull that off in that timeframe without his guidance and expertise. Thanks, Dan. – Anthony & LaNelle Schaffhauser
Dan is an extraordinary agent. He worked hard for us, and made himself available to visit many, many lake homes at times with very little lead time. We made a selection, moved forward with a tight close date, and secured our cabin. All with Dan’s help and guidance. Dan truly went the mile for us, and is 100% professional, honest, and is fun to work with! Thanks Dan! – Linda Knapp & Dennis Ryan

“We looked for a lake home for 4 years using a broker from Minneapolis. We decided to seek out someone with a new agent that had more experience in the Brainerd area. we contacted Dan by email and later met him up in Northern Minnesota. From the first visit Dan was engaged and informative about the areas we had interest in. After only two visits touring homes in the Brainerd area Dan understood what we were looking for and steered us to the house of our dreams. We bought the home 60 days later and able to enjoy it this summer already !! Dan was professional, and his follow up was was second to none. He took great care to keep us informed and worked to ensure we got the deal done. Thanks Dan !!” – Guy & Patsy Mingo
Dan was extremely helpful in guiding us through our first cabin buying experience. We weren’t sure exactly what we were looking for or where we were looking and with Dan’s knowledge and expertise of MN lakes we were able to find and purchase our perfect cabin. My previous experience with realtors included those who tried to sell the benefits of every property as if they were just trying to get us to jump. Dan was very objective and truthful on both the good and bad aspects of the many properties we visited, which really helped us make an informed decision. He was very available and responsive and definitely went out of his way to accommodate our schedules. I would recommend Dan to anyone exploring the possibility of buying a lake property. Lee & Stacey Ronshaugen
Bought a Home in 2012:
My wife and I were looking for a lake home within 2 1/2 hours from the Twin Cities. We contacted Dan through www.lakehomes.com and could not be happier with his guidance and responsiveness. After helping us narrow our list of “possible” properties to a manageable number, Dan showed us 13 different properties in one day – from McGregor to Crosby to the Brainerd Lakes area – and we ended up getting the property we wanted on Big Sandy. Dan guided us throughout the purchase process and negotiated an excellent purchase price. We would not hesitate to refer him to anyone. Dan & Molly Prokott

Bought a Home in 2012:
Some times you just get lucky and I consider myself very fortunate to have had Dan Anderson’s help in selecting a lake home. I would recomend him without question to anyone. Dan took the time to get aquainted with us and understand what we were looking for in a lake home. He showed us the properties that we were interested in and had some sugestions. We wound up purchasing one of his suggestions. My wife and I couldn’t be more pleased with Dan’s assistance. Tom & Helen Elwood
Bought a Home in 2011:
Dan is a very friendly knowledgeable agent. We made a very difficult purchase, that had many issues with the seller, as well as listing agent. Had it not been for Dan, I do not believe we would have been able to buy our dream cabin. I highly recommend Lakehomes.com Realty. Scott & Julie Youngstrom
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $500K in Tower, MN:
Each time our property was shown, we had feedback from Dan. He created a packet of information about our home, the lake we lived on and the surrounding area within the first week of our contract with him. The real estate market was very slow at the time he sold our home, but he kept us thinking positive and it sold in three months. Dan & Joyce Malterud
Bought Three Properties with Dan:
There is a profound difference between finding a lake home and finding the right lake home, and I would not attempt to figure that out with anyone but Dan. There are so many variables, many I never considered. But he did. And even though I’ve bought three properties with him over the course of twenty years, never once did he sell me a house. Instead, he has been more like my personal waterfront consultant, always helping me zero in on what is important to me. After all these years he continues to amaze me in how he seemingly knows every piece of water across the state. On top of that, he knows houses and construction and can immediately spot potential problems. Dan would rather not sell you a house than have you settle for a property that isn’t right. He has more integrity and is more selfless than any professional I’ve worked with in my entire life. Dave Schmit
Bought in 2011:
We were able to get into right place at right time using Dan as our negotiator and expert on lake property. Took two weekends and offers of about 3 weeks to get what we wanted. Dan knew how to offer the right price, how to find the information we needed. He was really an expert on lake property and I would highly recommend him for your search. Really personable guy who was easy to be with. You really need that if you are hanging around for hours on end with a “stranger!” Bob & Sarah Hillstrom
Sold a Single Family home in 2010 in Aitkin, MN:
Dan sold our lake home for us during a time when other houses in our neighborhood had been on the market for much longer than ours, without selling. His ad for our house on his website, lakehomes.com, created so much interest in our house that there were numerous showings by several different realtors, almost from the first day it appeared on the site, until it sold.
Dan also showed us numerous houses in our preferred neighborhood until we were able to find the perfect house to buy. Both closings were scheduled within days of each other, making our move seamless and fun! Jan & Dale Madson
Bought a home in 2010:
I contacted Dan because I had been using his web site to begin to try to narrow down where we might want to look at lake homes. His web site was very helpful — complete, easy to use — and Dan was even more so! He really knows northern Minnesota. It turned out that I couldn’t get half of what I wanted for what I wanted to pay, but Dan was not negative about that or pushing us into spending more. He listened and was very patient — we saw 27 properties over two days! We wound up spending more than we had originally planned and have not regretted it. We love having a lake place to enjoy with family and friends! Dave Drier & Jeanette Leander
