As a lifetime Chicago resident, Dan has an intimate knowledge of Chicago's diverse neighborhoods. Before becoming a Broker Associate he worked for over ten years as a Residential Real Estate Appraiser in the Chicagoland area. Having appraised thousands of residential properties from studio condominiums to multi-million dollar single-family homes Dan is able to provide his clients a distinct advantage in finding the right property at the best possible price!!!
Dan's reputation is built on his enthusiasm and skill in exceeding his clients' goals with professional and personalized service. You can be confident Dan will go the extra mile to ensure your needs are met and then some. After all, it's not just real estate, it's your future!
In his spare time Dan dabbles in woodworking making arts and crafts furniture. His basement is set up like Norm's New Yankee Workshop. When not working with wood Dan is a pyrotechnic. While most people enjoy watching a good firework display, Dan is content only when he gets to light the fuse. Dan says it's hard to describe and falls under the category of odd hobbies, but for family and friends he enjoys designing, coordinating and literally setting-off a firework display for all to safely enjoy. Does anyone have a match?
We are writing to recommend the services of Dan DePaepe. In 2010 we purchased a home with Dan as our Real Estate agent. His knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail have aided us in our search to purchase a home. While we were not first time home buyers, much has changed since our last purchase and Dan was instrumental in helping us navigate through the complex maze of home buying in today's changing market. We feel confident in recommending Daniel's services as a Realtor and I will definitely refer him to our family and friends. He is not only thorough, but also easy to work with, and always willing to take the time to discuss our concerns and respond to questions. Elvis and Carmen, Portage Park
Daniel was very helpful with the process and helpful with the paper work. Very good experience thank you.
We have worked with a number of realtors over the years and Dan is by far the best realtor we have ever worked with! He is focused on what is important and driven as a professional to get the job done! Our expecations were high and Dan met and exceeded them. We will continue to work with Dan in the future and will speak very highly of him.
Dan was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process. The first time we met I explained exactly what I was looking for and from that point on he guided me until we found the place that met all of them. Thank you Dan!
Dan was great. He went the extra mile every time during a difficult time in my brother's and my life. Thank you Dan.
I just wanted to say a huge Thank you to Dan for his expertise in the sales process. I reached out to Dreamtown after a bad experience with another Realtor in Chicago. See I lost out on a home once because my former Realtor didnâ??t think I was serious about buying a second place as I already have one. See, I wanted a larger place as I outgrew my current space after 11 years living there. I work from home so my office was taking over my condo. I found a great house nearby and told Dan I wanted this home. He offered to show me others but I knew I really wanted this home. We literally saw the place the next day (Saturday) and had a bid in the following day (Sunday). Mind you Iâ??m consuming his entire weekend with my interest in this property. Based on Danâ??s expert experience we made an adjustment to what I thought I would offer and we secured the acceptance by the owner because of his suggestion. I found out later they had four offers. Had I done what I thought I wanted to do I wouldnâ??t have my home. I canâ??t tell you how happy I was to get the home of my dreams. As a matter of fact, I immediately referred my friend to him. She just closed on her place and is also very happy with Dan. I can tell you if you want someone professional, will walk you through the process, give you expert advice, then Dan is your Agent. Dan from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
Dan was very attentive to my needs and responding immediately with answers and information. Dan is very knowledgeable with regards to market values, market rents and was able to provide names of contractors for work I was anticipating.
Dan is the sole reason my husband and I have a house. He worked so hard to find us the right fit in our price range and kept us motivated! He was knowledgeable and friendly but most importantly, he was honest. He truly had our best interest in mind! He's an amazing person and an amazing realtor. Beyond thankful that we found him!
We had a wonderful experience working with Dan for our recent home purchase! We were first-time home buyers, and Dan was incredibly helpful in patiently explaining to us all the ins and outs of the home-shopping and home-buying process. Dan went to great lengths helping us to find something in our target neighborhood and in a price range that we could afford, and along the way he helped us to steer clear of some potential pitfalls. Throughout the whole process, we felt that Dan really cared about helping us to find what we needed for our family -- that we were more like friends, rather than just clients. We enthusiastically recommend Dan to anyone who needs the services of a top-notch real estate agent!
I was referred to Dan by friends of mine and it would be my pleasure to refer him in the future. I was an inexperienced seller and Dan was very patient and informative. He took his time to explain all of the options that I had, thoroughly researched the neighborhood comps, and was open to listen to my questions and opinions. He stayed on top of everything and was great about providing updates. This made the process easy and painless as he was happy to walk me through each step. Dan is a great, professional guy and should I ever need a realtor in the future, I will definitely be reaching out to him!
Dan was very helpful in a very stressful time. He gave good advice on things I never thought about. I would recommend Dan to my family and friends. He sold the property in a very short time. Thanks for going out of your way on many occasions for me. Thanks again.
Dan DePaepe has been my realtor for two real estate transactions and I highly recommend him to be your agent! Dan went above and beyond in every respect as a real estate agent. He was always timely and knowledgeable in both my transactions. I have moved many times in my career and Dan is the best agent I have worked with!
We have used Daniel DePaepe as our real estate agent and were very pleased to work with him. We'll be working with him again very soon. He is a very caring and pleasant person and his knowledge of Chicago real estate is very high and a valuable asset. Dan helped us find exactly what we needed in a somewhat unusual case and was always available on short notice. Buying and selling real estate in the Chicago area can be a tedious and frustrating process and having someone like Dan as your agent brings results, which makes it a satisfying, rewarding experience.

Recently we were faced with a big problem - we had to sell my sisters three flat in Chicago as soon as possible. A good friend of ours recommended a broker to us, Daniel DePaepe, who might help us. We held meetings with Dan and signed a contract. Dan did all the work - answered all our questions, listed showings on the internet and even suggested an attorney in our area. We are in our eighties and unable to travel back and forth to Chicago. We didn't have to as Dan handled it all - even getting the buyers to empty the building without our help. In about one month we had a final closing downtown - our lawyer attended so we didn't have to. Dan was great always available. Kept us informed about everything. I will gladly recommend dan to all our friends. Joe Tchon
