I want to thank you with deep appreciation for your outstanding service in marketing and ultimately selling our family’s home for my brother Kevin and I. Our parents are now both deceased, and this was the family home where we both grew up for over 50 years. There are a lot of memories and emotions for my brother and I to deal with in our decision to sell our home and you provided us the compassion, empathy, understanding and confidence to proceed.
The entire process was handled in the most compassionate professional and efficient ways possible. You displayed sincere passion, positive/tireless energy and knowledge for the real estate business, and you genuinely wanted to do things right, and do the right things for your clients. On our first meeting you listened intently to all of our concerns and questions, and provided us outstanding guidance with accurate and timely information and answers. Your communication skills, people skills and management skills are truly remarkable.
We have read the numerous letters from your other clients expressing their appreciation and gratitude for all you have done in their respective real estate transactions. Kevin and I again confirm with this letter that everything stated about you, and working with you is absolutely true, and more.
With sincere appreciation and gratitude,
Mr. Dana Brockway,
Just a brief note to thank you for all your help in selling our home. As you well know the difficulty we had with the other broker and the thousands of dollars lost because of his inexperience. You really came through with sincerity, honesty, and professionally handled the selling of our home. I still remember your sensitivity and understanding way. Thank you again for a job well done and in such a short amount of time in a time when selling was not an easy job. Thanks again for everything.
With best regards,
--Paul and Diane J.
To Whom It May Concern:
I previously had my property listed for sale for over one year with another broker and during that time did not receive any offers. After listing with Dana Brockway the amount of interest in my property from his aggressive marketing plan was fantastic and even though it had been listed before for over one year, Dana had an offer on my property in six days and sold it and had it in escrow in about two weeks.
Not only did Dana have an offer in only six days after listing with him, but with his help I was able to sell my house for over $20,000 above my full asking price.
Needless to say I would recommend his service to anyone.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent manner in which you handled the sale of my property. I would highly recommend you to anyone who needs a professional, experienced and compassionate realtor.
My property had been on the market for four months without selling. I then decided to try a different agent to see if I could get a more satisfying result. I listened to what you had to say, your ideas and excitement for marketing my property gave me the confidence to select you.
Your marketing strategies were aggressive and your follow through impeccable. You made timely contact with each and every broker who showed the property. Throughout the escrow process you were always responsive to all of my questions and kept me informed until the close of escrow. I am happy to refer you to anyone trying to sell their property.

To Whom It May Concern:
I previously had my property listed for sale with another broker for over three months without selling. I had already planned a vacation back to Rhode Island when Dana Brockway said he might be able to sell it before I returned. I thought he was kidding since the last broker was unable to sell it after over three months, but I felt that Dana was serious and here is what happened...
I left for my vacation after listing with Dana. The first weekend on the market Dana called to give me an update. I found that the increased amount of interest in my property compared to the previous broker was amazing.
In the first 12 hours my property had its first showing. The very next day I had four more showings and then my first written offer was emailed to me while on vacation. By the end of the first week I had sold my property with a total of three written offers, one was even above my full listed price while I was still on my vacation.
Dana had sold my property with multiple backup offers. With the excitement created by Dana’s marketing efforts the buyers were actually raising their own offers and multiple backup counter offers to buy my property. I sold my property and then closed escrow in 30 days. Dana stayed in constant contact with me every step of the way. I would recommend Dana Brockway’s real estate service to anyone.
I can’t thank you enough for the way you took charge and sold my home in a very short time. Your thoughtfulness was really appreciated, especially when you knew how traumatic this move was for me. You were always there when questions needed to be answered, and you kept things moving along in a very smooth manner. You were great!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I wish all good things for you.
We wish to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent manner in which you handled the recent sale of our home. It was truly a job well done!
With your considerable experience in the real estate field you carried us through the maze of legal requirements. Also, your advice at each juncture of the process was responsible for us receiving the most money possible for our property. Your attention to details, your quick response to our calls and your follow-through is outstanding. We would certainly be remiss if we did not mention that above everything else you are a wonderful and dedicated person who is a pleasure to work with.We heartily recommend you to any future clients who really “want to get the job done”.
Best Personal Regards,
--George and Lois C.
We just wanted to tell you how much my wife and I appreciated the professional way in which you handle the sale of our home. After having it listed with a “friend” in the business for a period of four months to no avail, we decided to go with you and it was the best decision we could have made. You analyze the market and our home, produced brochures and ads that describe the property beautifully and followed through with every detail. You separated the “lookie- loos” from the serious buyers and as you know, met with success.
And just a little over 60 days we had a buyer and at the price we were actually looking for. Thank you for your help and having made a very difficult problem easier.
Keep up the good work.
I want to thank you for your professional manner in selling my home. Your presentation of my home to prospective buyers was great and your thoroughness to detail was excellent. I had listed my property with another broker with very little activity and no offers. I appreciate all of your help in selling my home and helping me during this traumatic time in my life.
Thank you for being there for my every little question and walking me through the process-you were great. I can’t thank you enough for all your help. I can honestly say I recommend your services to anyone wishing to sell their property. I really felt that you were looking out after my best interest.
Thank you for handling the sale of my home.
It has been a pleasure knowing and working with you.
The following items have been most important:
Knowing the business
Knowing the area
Excellent sales delivery
Listening to what buyers and seller want
Continuous update of information
You get an A+ in all of these categories. I will definitely recommend you for anyone’s real estate needs.
Bill and I want to thank you for doing such an excellent job of marketing my deceased mother’s home. It all went so smoothly and efficiently, and it couldn’t have worked out more fairly.
In the past, we have dealt with numerous realtors and have never felt as in touch with the whole process as you have made us feel. From your first presentation on, I knew we were in exceptional hands. It helps me so much to have everything explained and all the options right out on the table. You didn’t hedge or hem or haw; we trusted our instincts that you knew what you were talking about, and well, the rest is history.
We are so amazed that mom’s home sold so quickly and at just the right price for this market. From start to finish, it was only two months! Every step of the way you were such a great help.
The fact that you listen to us as we expressed our needs, as well as advising us on the realities of the current market gave us great confidence in you. You knew what we wanted and helped us to find realistic numbers. You were absolutely ON about everything!
Needless to say, even before this escrow closed, we “hired” you to sell the home of Bill’s deceased parents. While that house is just now on the market, we are confident that it will sell following the same smooth pattern as the Radford house. Whether it takes less time or more, we wouldn’t dream of listing it with anyone else. The fact that you love this business and its challenges is very apparent, and we will recommend you to all of our friends and associates who are buying or selling a home.
Feel free to use us as a reference if you wish. We would be happy to tell others about you and our great experience. Last but not least, THANK YOU DANA for everything! You’ve been a great person to work with.
--Bill and Colleen M.
This is a long overdue letter of appreciation for your continued professionalism in our field of Real Estate. Little did I know six years ago when I asked you to handle the sale of my home in Van Nuys that it would lead to a long and lasting business relationship.
As I was looking over my records I find I have referred all of my San Fernando Valley clients to you and you have sold each and every property, allowing me to then complete my sales in Friendly Valley. It is not often that you meet another Realtor in our business that you feel confident enough to hand over a client, but you have been absolutely the greatest to work with because you have the marketing skills to get the job done.
5854 Vineland Avenue - Sold the first week with two offers, $2000 below the full price.
9525 Aldea Avenue - Sold in 12 days at full price.
7114 Atheling Way - Sold at one of the highest prices in the area.
6534 Aqueduct Avenue - Sold in 16 days.
6941 Tobias Avenue - my home Sold at the highest price in the area at that time.
All my clients have thanked me time and again for referring them to Dana Brockway. Thanks a million times over for handling all my referrals to your area.
Your friend in business,
just a short note to thank you for all of your efforts on behalf in the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one. Everything you did was extremely efficient and very professional. Your expertise, after a very bad experience with another broker, was most appreciated.
After interviewing several brokers, we relisted our home with you. We thought your ideas about promoting our home had genuine merit and we felt very comfortable with you. When you told us that you had never encountered clients that tried so hard to keep you informed and who were available to show the house as often as we were, we felt elated. You even agreed that a lockbox was not important in the overall scheme of things. We did exactly the same things when we communicated with you as we had done with our former broker. When our home sold to a qualified buyer in about 2 ½ months we were delighted.
As a matter of fact, our next-door neighbor was so impressed with you that after six months with another broker and only one open house in all of that time, she listed her home with you and it was sold in less than three weeks at the asking price.
You also found our new home for us… A wonderful property in an area we really wanted to live in but were not sure we would be able to afford. Your knowledge of the Valley and your experience and professionalism in negotiation made the purchase, while nerve-racking, possible.
Not only were we able to find it extremely competent Realtor in you, we also feel that we have found a new friend. Please know that we will continue to refer family and friends to you in their search for new homes and for help in the sale of their current properties.
Thanking you again for your efforts, courtesies and professionalism.
--Howard and Barbara C.
I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend you to anyone who needs a professional, experienced and compassionate realtor to help them sell real estate and at the same time thank you for the excellent manner in which you handled the sale of two of my properties and guided me with my new purchase as well.
I listened to what you had to say, your ideas and excitement for marketing my properties gave me the confidence to select you. Your attention to details and quick response to all my phone calls along with your follow-through was terrific.
In short, I know that any prospective client of yours will be well served with you on their side. You may be sure that not only would I recommend your services to my friends, but you will also hear from me again the next time I need to buy or sell Real Estate. Thank you for all of your help.
Dear Dana Brockway,
We would like to thank you very much for your efforts in helping us sell our home.
We had originally listed our home as a “For Sale By Owner” listing since we were not in a hurry to sell and wanted to test the market. During that time, we met, listen to, and interviewed in excess of 35 realtors and a few buyers. We also watch the active and sold listings in our area very closely to learn what was actually taking place. What we learned was that we had a unique property and that we really needed to market it to realtors to make the most buyers aware of it and its qualities. We were about to make our choice of realtors to officially list our home when you called and convinced us that we should listen to just one more realtor. We did listen to what you had to say and your ideas and excitement for marketing our home. You sold yourself to us so well that we figured you would be able to do the same with our home and we liked your marketing ideas.
You got the deal done for us and were with us throughout the whole process, always responsive to our questions and keeping us informed of the progress of all aspects of the eventual sale. Thanks to you and your efforts we obtained the full asking price for our home. We are happy to refer you to anyone trying to sell their home.
--George and Sharon S.
To Whom It May Concern:
We previously property listed for sale with the broker for nearly 5 months. During that time, we had only 3 showings and no offers. After listing with Dana Brockway the amount of interest in our property was fantastic. Dana, having over 30 years of Real Estate Sales experience, really came through for us. In the first 5 days we had 14 showings and 3 written offers.
Within 14 days we had a sold our property with multiple offers. With the excitement created by Dana’s marketing efforts, the buyers were actually raising their own offers in multiple counter offers to buy our property, and we sold our property above full list price and closed escrow in 30 days.
--Masayuki and Hiroko
Congratulations on the sale of “Cartwright” and “Bonner”! We wanted you to know that we appreciate your exemplary efforts in selling these properties. As developers we deal with a great many brokers and find that most are proficient in selected areas of the business, but in your case, you are truly knowledgeable and experienced in all areas of marketing, sales, negotiations and the closing process. Moreover, you demonstrated the ability to quickly understand issues and strategies in representing our interest in every given situation. With your guidance we knew that our interest was being served at all times.
In short, we know that any prospective client of yours will be well served to have you on their team to lead them through the minefield of technical issues associated with selling or buying of a house in today’s market. In addition to your professionalism, your promptness to every single telephone call and request for information was simply the most responsive I have experienced in my 30 some years in the business. You are a credit to your Industry!
Just a belated note of thanks to you for the professionalism you demonstrated from beginning to end of the sale of our home last summer. Like many I was reluctant to list my home with the Realtor and have to “shell out” what little equity I had left in commission dollars. Not only did you seem genuinely sensitive about that, you also exhibited some compassion that seem to be nonexistent with some of the other Realtors who had approached me on the listing of my home. You also spoke in terms of reality and not some trumped up sales pitch! In today’s real estate climate there are so many variables and risks that without the constant support and communication of a knowledgeable professional such as yourself one certainly flirts with disaster.
I hope business is good and feel free to have any of your potential clients contact me for a positive referral. Also the invitation still stands, if you’re ever in the Thousand Oaks area drop by!
To Potential Clients of Dana Brockway:
On the recommendation of a colleague, we interviewed Dana to sell our home in Porter Ranch. It was apparent in our discussions that he was sincerely interested in meeting our needs and wishes, not just taking another listing. Within a week he presented us with multiple offers at or above our asking price. Dana was always responsive, available and knowledgeable in guiding us through the complex procedures and documentation required to complete the sale which went off without a hitch.
The depth of his experience and extensive knowledge were key elements in the” painless” execution of this transaction and we highly recommend Dana to any future clients.
To Whom It May Concern:
Having to go through difficult times was made even more difficult when I decided I had to sell my house. On top of it, my experience with previous Real Estate Broker/Agents has not been encouraging… Until I met Dana Brockway.
After Dana went to work on selling my house I became supremely confident that the deal would be done right! And it was… IN RECORD TIME AND AT A RECORD PRICE!
To Whom It May Concern:
We wasted the first two months with the wrong Realtor, we had very little interest and no offers. Once we switch to Dana there was a flood of people to look at our property and in 9 days we received and accepted the offer. I highly recommend Mr. Brockway, he is unequivocally the best Realtor I have ever had the experience of working with… His experience and knowledge are apparent in everything he does. Dana is extremely patient as well, he never became annoyed with our endless stream of questions and he was available throughout the entire process. If my wife or I couldn’t reach him at his office we could leave a message and he would respond immediately, no matter what time it was. I would not even consider using anyone else for my real estate needs in the future.
We both want to thank you for the dedication you have shown in selling our property. You are a very pleasant caring young man, also very professional. We hope to do business with you again in the near future. Thanks again.
--Edith and Len S.
To Whom It May Concern:
Before I met Mr. Brockway, I did not know that there is an exciting Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker until he called me up early in the morning right after my listing with Remax Realty expired. I had no intention of changing brokers or agents at that time, but his early morning call caught my attention. This man is “an early bird” type of person and I was impressed. After our brief telephone conversation, I made an appointment with him. I was impressed more with his knowledge and forthrightness. After our meeting, I signed the documents appointing him is my new real estate agent.
After only a few days, I received a call from Mr. Brockway, again in the morning, advising that there was an interested buyer. In short, after a few more days elapsed, I received an offer and the ending is, MY HOUSE WAS SOLD!
Therefore, if you are looking for a GOOD real estate agent, TALK to MR. DANA BROCKWAY.
To Whom It May Concern:
I recently was selling my house and I was told to call Dana Brockway if I needed a great real estate agent by another agent from another area, so I took her advice and I called Dana…. this was the best call I ever made. I met with him the next day. Mr. Brockway is a very active and informative agent. I listed my house on a Thursday and on Monday I had two offers at FULL PRICE. I couldn’t believe how fast this happened. Dana words his listings to really grab your attention. He stayed in contact with me every step of the way. If I had to sell a house again the first call I would make would be to Dana Brockway.
Thank you for your time,
Sorry this letter is a few months late, but I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the job you did for me in selling my house. As you know, I had tried unsuccessfully to sell it through 3 other brokers before I was lucky enough to find you... And to have the sign go up, the immediate offers, the sale goes through and the escrow close--- all in six weeks’ time -- was incredible.
I especially appreciate your product and market knowledge, your attention to detail, your professionalism and how you kept me advised every step along the way. I also appreciate how you represented my best interests.
Thanks again for an outstanding job!
Sayat and I want to take a few minutes to express our appreciation for the excellent manner in which you professionally, courteously, and expeditiously executed and facilitated both the sale of our house and the purchase of our lovely new home.
As you know, you came to us at a time much-needed. We had wasted nine months with an agent, however lovely she was, whose qualifications are now highly questionable. Weekend after weekend, we were thrown out of our home so she could have futile open houses on the overpriced house while the value of real property was steadily declining.
When her contract finally terminated, we went through the excruciating process of interviewing dozens of prospective agents. You were one of the first we met. After a week of empty promises and seemingly false presentations by others, your overall presentation really persuaded us. You seemed very honest and forthcoming and unlike others, you did not make any false promises or raise false hopes. Your presentation was concise, professional and very organized.
About two weeks after that day, our house was in escrow. Two weeks thereafter, we found a perfect house to purchase. In two weeks after that we were able to move in. You were a consistent liaison between all the parties, always interested and ready to lend your expert advice. You made everything so much easier and for that, we thank you and remain very truly yours.
--Stephanie and Sayat K.
This will serve as my testimonial to your care and professionalism and as my sincere thanks for being responsible for closing the sale of my property. This was always going to be a “short pay” as a property would probably sell for at least $5,000 less than the mortgage balance plus costs and back taxes.
The house was listed for eight months with another broker/agent. I was discouraged to say the least. You took a six-month listing on May 7th, reduced on June 14th at another small ($6500) reduction on July 12th. In August you had three offers for me! We opened escrow on August 20th and closed on September 16th. The offer was rock-solid, above asking price and the new owners are as happy as I am! I think you are wonderful and I wish you all the best.
We are writing to thank you for your help in selling our property.
We had previously listed our property with another broker. It was listed with them for six months and during that time we received no offers. We wish now that we had listed with you the first time. Had the sale been pursued with the energy and dedication you demonstrated, we would surely have sold it much sooner.
As it is we wish to sincerely thank you for all you did to get our house sold very close to the asking price and within 60 days of picking up the listing. We have recommended you to several of our friends, and would wholeheartedly recommend your services to anyone wishing to sell their property. We really felt someone was looking out for our best interests.
--Bruce and Debby R.
We are writing to express our gratitude for your efforts on the sale of the family home.Prior to you becoming our agent, the home had been on the market for one year. During that time, we were extremely frustrated with the difficulties we experienced in selling the property.
We interviewed several agents before we entered into the brokerage agreement with you. We were and continue to be most impressed with the fact that you conducted yourself in a very capable, knowledgeable and professional manner. Your efforts resulted in the sale of our home in only three weeks at a fair price.
We also want to let you know how much we appreciated your continued assistance throughout the escrow. The whole experience was far less stressful than we expected.
Once again, thanks for all your help.
--Mildred D. and Leona W.
We are taking this moment to express our gratitude for your work and efforts in the sale of our property. We thought that after keeping it listed for over a year with no serious offers, and having it handled by two other agents before, it wouldn’t sell in the current market.
You did it in only two weeks after we signed with you and you did it for the full listing price! Not to mention the aggravation you saved us by showing continued assistance throughout the escrow. Many thanks for your efforts.
On all the occasions we spoke, or met with you, you were very capable and efficient as a professional, yet at the same time very personable. You may be sure that not only are we going to recommend your services to our friends, should we be a need for a Great Real Estate Agent in the future.
Best of luck to you,
--Jacek and Ursula P.
This is just a short note to thank you for all of your efforts on our family’s behalf in the sale of our parent’s home. Your product and market knowledge, with your attention to detail is incredible. We feel so fortunate to have had you highly recommended to us by a realtor from another region!
To have this sign go up, with immediate offers, and have the sale of my parent’s house close escrow… All within 6 weeks’ time was startling. You kept us informed, and advised us every step along the way. We also appreciated how you represented our family’s best interest.
Not only were we able to find an extremely competent realtor in you, we also feel that we have found a new friend.
--Bob and Christy M.
To Whom It May Concern,
We would like to heartily recommend Dana Brockway to anyone needing a professional, compassionate, and motivated Realtor.
Our house had been on the market for three months during a period of record-low inventory with a self-proclaimed top producer and once the contract was signed we never saw our Realtor again.
We decided to try a different agent to see if we could get a more satisfying result… Within seven days Dana Brockway brought us an offer that we were thrilled with. He actually did everything that he said he would do. His approach was hands-on and he made timely contact with each and every Broker who showed the house.
His marketing strategies were aggressive, his follow through impeccable, his experience in the Industry both educated us and gave us a competitive edge. We have been so satisfied with Dana’s performance that our only regret is that we didn’t know about him earlier.
The difference was Dana!
--Terry and Theresa D.
Just a short note to thank you for your help in selling my property on Valleyheart Drive. After a couple of agents had it and a couple of false starts to no avail, it was nice to have an agent who cared and was positive and responsive. The home sold near the asking price. I thank you again.
