I've worked with Dani for buying an investment house in the San Jose area since May and she was awesome to work with. She is honest, trustworthy, considerate, and professional and always following-up with details about our questions with the houses. She knows the Bay Area really well, so when our first offer was rejected, she was not pushy and didn't ask us to increase the offer, but instead told us to try other options. In the 3 months (from when we decided to start looking) that we worked with Dani we found her to be diligent and detailed. She protected our as buyers interest and found the best interest for us as well. She has full lists of reliable handymen, contractors for remodeling, termite companies, and gardeners. She always thinks ahead and calls her contact list people to get the price estimates for us. It has been saving us a lot of time! Dani makes the process of buying and investing in a house so much easier, and we are very thankful to have had her help us through and make easier the many struggles of finding a fairly priced house for investments and all our other concerns. One thing for certain is, whatever your ideas are, she will help you to the best of her ability.
More than that though, she became our friend and we are grateful to have found her.

Dani was referred to me as being an outstanding realtor, so I had high expectations of her from the start. She did not disappoint. I have bought and sold in this valley several times over the past twenty years and can attest that she is indeed tops in the field. She was always a step ahead of all actions needed, and jumped in quickly when the process hits those inevitable snags to smooth everything over. She is also an enjoyable with whom to share the sometimes stressful real estate process. I plan to engage her again if/when I sell the place I just bought!
Les G./ Seller
Dani is an experienced pro. Highly Efficient and very careful to talk through every key point with her clients. She creates a clear map of the process and keeps everyone organized. Her recommended house prep for the sale was correct; potential buyers said it was exactly what they were looking for. Dani's market knowledge enables her to segment the market of potential buyers, from which she suggests a listing strategy and process. We were on market just three days, and the flow during that time was exactly as Dani had described. Dani created a competitive process and predicted the offers we actually received. Dani is polished at advancing a winning bid to close in a timely manner. Throughout, Dani will give you confidence that everything involved is tracking to a positive outcome. She has our highest confidence. We will always use her services in future transactions.

Dani is an amazing realtor. From start to finish she made the process of selling my condo seamless. This was my first time selling a home, so you might imagine how nervous I was about the whole process. Dani was attentive and very thorough every step of the way ... from the enormous amount of paperwork that needed to be completed, to getting ready to show my home, to all the traffic coming through, reviewing the offers, and lastly her expertise with helping determine the offer that was best for me. Dani was also a fantastic resource for a handyman when I needed to do minor repairs and for moving company referrals. It seemed there wasn't anything that Dani didn't have a resource for, which helped immensely and saved me a lot of legwork.
A big concern for me was my pet who is extremely sensitive to strangers coming into the house, however it turned out to be no problem whatsoever with Dani in charge! My cat loved her! Now that was a great "sign" I chose the right person to represent me! Dani was always mindful of my kitty and insured he never got out.
I could say more, however running out of space to keep on gushing about Dani. If you choose her, you will definitely not be disappointed.
Bill C./ Buyer & Seller
Excellent Realtor! Dani sold our home for more than comparable homes. Due to Dani's help we received "as is" offers enabled by complete set of inspection and disclosure reports. We used Dani's tradesman contacts (landscape, flooring, painting, staging) to quickly peak our home's attractiveness to buyers. Dani was also great supporting our new home purchase. Dani understood our goals and presented wonderful homes for our review. Her council was objective and in our interest. Dani's extensive experience and support was very helpful with every aspect of our selling and buying experience. We recommend Dani!

Buying or selling a home is one of the most exciting and, at the same time, stressful experiences in a person's life. Not only is it usually someone's largest and most important investment, but it is where you will raise your family and call home.
I have had the pleasure of working with Dani for many years and can tell you from first-hand experience, that not only is she patient and caring, but her attention to detail is second to none. Buying or selling a home is a very complex and stressful process, and selecting the right Realtor to represent you and walk you through that process will make all the difference. In my opinion, Dani Bitter is that Realtor. If you are considering Dani for the job of representing you on the purchase or sale of your home, you have the person. You will be in good hands with Dani.
Tracy K./ Seller
When we decided to sell, we chose Dani for her local knowledge and realty expertise. She excelled in both, guiding us through the selling experience and continually being there for support and questions. She provided us with industry respected and easy to work with contractors that did quality work quickly and efficiently. She had the house ready for sale in prime condition in record time. The best part of the experience was that Dani was more than just a realtor to us, she was there for us always, answering questions, helping make important decisions and making the selling experience painless. Even after the sale, Dani continues to support us with all the minor details involved with a move. I can’t say enough about the experience we had with Dani as our realtor. Highly recommended.
Jamie K./ Seller
Dani Bitter is a top-notch realtor. I don't think there is anyone else that will work harder for you. During our home sale Dani made herself completely available to us so much so that it was almost like having our own personal assistant. She has a long list of quality subcontractors that are at the ready for Dani Bitter properties. Also, Dani is extremely ethical. This does not, however, get in the way of her being a very savvy business person. She is truly an expert in her field and knows how to arrive at a competitive price that will ensure a quick sale with multiple offers. Put your trust in her and you will will get results. We are forever grateful to Dani for her expertise and for helping make the sale of our home virtually effortless.
Sue C./ Seller
Dani was an absolute dream to work with! She was knowledgeable, left no stone unturned, detailed, professional and such a joy over all! She helped us every step of the way or took it on herself - from painting, getting new carpet installed, scheduling and meeting all the inspectors and repair people. The house was beautifully staged and ready for sale in no time at all! Dani was extremely sharp and thoughtful about the pricing strategy, the Open House schedule as well as how and when to take offers. We received 13 offers and got 14% over asking price. In a nutshell, Dani was really fantastic! I cannot recommend her highly enough!
Jenny K./ Seller
My friend used Dani as her real estate agent when she sold her home in Saratoga. When we were getting ready to list our West San Jose home 2 months ago, she told me how amazing Dani was and shared a story of Dani's attention to detail in the staging and selling of her home. I called Dani the next week and was impressed from our first interactions. We started planning about 3 weeks before we wanted to list the home to set up mtgs, and Dani was able to list the home less than 5 days after our tenants moved out. Within those 5 days, we had painters, carpet cleaners, house cleaners, roof inspector, property inspector, termite inspector, stagers, photographers, landscaping, and a repairman perform services. Dani coordinated and managed ALL of this while I was out of state. We received multiple offers and Dani negotiated and steered us right from the original listing to accepting the best offer to the final close of escrow. Dani's qualities include
+ extremely knowledgeable about the market and best strategies to get the most out of your house
+ amazing customer service, communications and project management. We were always surprised that Dani could be doing anything else besides selling our home because she gave us so much attention and did not let any balls drop. (In fact she was of course working with others simultaneously:)
+ great connections to local businesses to get the best stagers, and other workman to get necessary items fixed quickly at competitive prices
+ honesty and transparency- she discussed any concerns with us, and helped play forward multiple scenarios so we were prepared
+ great listener- I only met Dani in person once, for half a day in our home in San Jose and I showed her around and explained all the updates we did and she took notes and conveyed this to the potential buyers in the open house (we could tell by the letters from buyers we received with the offers)
+ going above and beyond what is expected- Dani helped arrange repairs for a few items that were broken as our tenant moved out. She did so much more efficiently and cost effectively than I could have done myself.
She also took all my receipts and notes on upgrades and repairs and scanned and organized them into nice packets for the buyers so no information was lost. Thanks for everything Dani. We feel very lucky to have worked with you.
Janice C./ Seller
Dani is truly the perfect residential expert when it comes to listing properties! Dani was able to move quickly in getting our Saratoga home ready for market, and called in many "favors" to make it happen; she truly put her heart and soul into it! Our home sold quickly with three offers to choose from. Dani was personally involved with every aspect of our transaction, and we couldn't be happier! We just love her!
Diane H./ Seller
Review of Dani Bitter, worlds most amazing real estate agent:
Dani was our real estate agent when we sold our Sunnyvale home and she could not have been more amazing. She gave us great advice throughout – recommendations on what renovations were worth doing and what was too much hassle, helping us find people to do work who would actually show up, the timing of the sale, how to evaluate the offers we got, figuring out the crazy fine print involved in real estate in California, and much, much, much more. Dani is an amazing project manager and she helped us get everything done when it needed to be done. Selling where we had raised our family ended up being fairly emotional for us, and Dani was able to help us make good decisions during a pretty crazy time. Everything worked out even better than we imagined in large part thanks to Dani’s expertise. She is simply superb at what she does
Randy C./ Buyer & Seller
Dani Bitter is real estate agent extraordinaire. When you work with Dani, you are guaranteed success from start to finish. With her knowledge of the market, real estate skills and expertise, total client support, and personal dedication to excellence, she is able to achieve the most favorable outcome possible for her clients. I have just completed my 4th real estate transaction (2 sales, 2 buys) with Dani. Real estate transactions are difficult and at times not pleasurable, but Dani is there to lift your spirits when needed. Even if you just need to talk, she will be there to listen, provide you counsel, and guide you through the arduous process. I would do it all again with Dani, and would highly recommend her services to anyone I know contemplating a real estate transaction.
LLynda H./ Seller
I would like to say thank you to Dani Bitter for so efficiently marketing and selling my condo. She fully lived up to an excellent recommendation from a friend. The entire process was a pleasure from start to finish and was most appreciated. She provides that dynamic balance of incredible service and motivation with warmth, energy, and understanding of your individual needs. Her years of experience as a Realtor are reflected in her success and passion for her work. Her personal energy and professional skills make her one of the best in her field. I had already moved out of state when my California condo was put on the market. I had no worries and felt perfectly at ease that she would do an outstanding job of selling my condo. I appreciated her encouragement to stage my condo. I know that is was money well spent because it made my condo look incredible in the photos on her website and it attracted several buyers and multiple offers right away. I had at least 23 offers on my condo. She went through each offer in detail giving me the pros and cons of each one. She quickly helped me to narrow the offers down to the best one for my needs. I would like to highly recommend Dani Bitter to anyone needing her knowledge, thoroughness and service. Dani is "the Best of the Best"!!!
Sabrina V./ Buyer
It has been my pleasure working with Dani Bitter to buy my new home. As a first time home buyer the process appeared very overwhelming, but Dani truly made the process easy to understand and guided me each step of the way. She connected me to great people to support my loan application, listened carefully to what I wanted, and helped me be competitive in this challenging market, and ultimately get the home that I wanted at a price that was right for me.
I met Dani when she was hosting an open house and from our first contact she was clear, honest, and responsive. Within hours of meeting her she had reached out to me via email and began sending me property listings in my desired area. She helped me understand the current market conditions and used her expertise and experience to make my case as a buyer as strong as possible. Once I was fully qualified she walked me through the process of beginning to look for a home. She provided invaluable insight regarding what to look for when evaluating a property, what various upgrades might cost me, what hidden costs might exist, and what the various inspections meant. When I had questions about particular properties she was always quick to get answers for me even if that meant multiple phone calls to the listing agent. One thing I appreciated was while she always provided her expert advice she was also clear that decisions were mine to make.
As I found properties that I liked she moved rapidly to visit them with me, ensured I had all the information I needed to make an informed offer, and then strategized ways to make my offer stand out. When I finally found “the” place we visited it together, reviewed the inspections, strategized, and had an offer to the selling agent within hours. I have no doubt that because of our quick and clear offer, and her capable strategy I got my home on only my second offer, at asking price, within 4 days of it going on the market which is extremely rare in this climate. After our contract was signed, Dani’s support continued, as she connected me with movers and provided moving checklists, and making sure I was clear on all the next steps. Because of Dani’s support buying my first home in a tough market was truly a pleasure and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Nikki B./ Buyer & Seller
This wasn't the first transaction Dani Bitter has done for us and sure it won't be the last. Her skills are second to none including area knowledge, negotiation skills and remarkable attention to ALL detail involved. She really does her homework-- after being certain she has acquired adequate knowledge she proceeds on behalf of her clients representing their very best interest. She is fair, reasonable, likable and responds quickly to queries. Nothing left undone when Dani is your agent. She has sold houses where other agents have tried repeatedly, helped us purchase homes after comprehensive research on the 'right price' saving us $$$ in the process. I do believe she is one of the best, if not the best real estate agent in Silicon Valley, or anywhere for that matter.
We are delighted to write a testimonial on behalf of Dani Bitter at Intero Real Estate. Dani served as the agent who handled the sale of our Saratoga property. Since we reside in another state, and could not directly attend to many of the details associated with effectively preparing and marketing a property for sale, we required a full service agent who could provide the necessary attention to these matters. Dani did a superlative job in all aspects of the sale process. During the preparation phase, Dani demonstrated an exceptional ability to organize, to plan and to simply ‘get the job done’. Her extensive network of local tradesmen and craftsmen provided us with quality and cost effective services, and at each step of the process, we were consulted and allowed to make informed decisions. Collectively, these preparations had a significantly positive impact on the curb appeal of the property, and substantially increased its market value. During the marketing phase Dani also did an excellent job. Her ‘state of the art’ visuals, combined with her communication skills and foresight resulted in a sales-compelling presentation, and a quick sale of the property. Lastly, some comment should be made about Dani’s ability to work through problems and facilitate resolution of potential issues between the buyer and the seller. In every sale these issues inevitably arise and Dani demonstrated a masterful touch at getting them resolved. Based on all these considerations, we can give Dani Bitter our highest recommendation.
Bill & Chris C./ Sellers
Over the past years we have bought and sold 7 homes and commercial property. We have dealt with numerous realtors throughout Northern California. When my mother passed away in Sunnyvale we found ourselves not only grieving with our loss but the fact that we had to sell her property that was 250 miles away and was in need of repairs. When we interviewed Dani Bitter as a possible realtor we were very impressed with her friendliness, knowledge, suggestions and being willing to contact who ever was needed to do all the repairs that were necessary. Because of Dani's hard work and excellent judgement in all areas from the listing, staging and overseeing home repairs we were able to sell my mother's home in a short amount of time getting more than the asking price. By far Dani has been the best realtor that we have ever worked with and we have to give her a 5 star rating for her excellent services! We highly recommend Dani for any real estate transactions.
Tim & Karen F./ Sellers
We just wanted to take a moment to let you know how very much we appreciated everything that you did to help us with the sale of our home... From the moment we decided to sell our home of 20 years till the close of escrow we appreciated your professionalism and your anticipation of our every need to get the house and yard ready for staging in just a couple of weeks... Not only did you work with us to get the best possible price - you actually made it happen with multiple offers within the 1st week and a very quick and timely close of escrow. Your attention to detail and organization was so helpful in the beginning as was your graciousness and diplomacy throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend your services to anyone who is thinking of selling their home.
Dawn W./ Buyer & Seller
Dani Bitter is a fantastic realtor. We would highly recommend her to everyone. We cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Dani in the buying of our home 7 years ago and the selling of that same home in October 2013. Dani is very professional, dedicated, caring, extremely detailed, smart, a wonderful listener, she keeps you informed, calls, emails, texts are answered promptly. Dani is always one step ahead, plus she knows the Silicon Valley market. Through the years we have always kept in touch with Dani, when it came time to put our house on the market we knew with 100% certainty that Dani was the realtor we would contact to get the house sold in a prompt and efficient manner. We moved out of the Bay Area and we joked with her that we would love to have her assistance when buying a new home in our new location! We can’t thank her enough for her guidance and friendship over the years. Dani is simply the BEST!
Mike & Jessie I./ Buyer & Seller
Dani deserves the highest medal of honor for her patience and understanding, her excellent follow through as well as her magnificent customer service. Dani was recommended to us because of her attention to detail and real estate acumen. Since she lives in the neighborhood she was able to give us invaluable information about the community. When we began our search, there weren't many homes for sale. Being creative, Dani researched the community of our interest and found homeowners that had lived in the neighborhood for quite some time and might be considering downsizing. She sent out postcards to these homeowners to let them know that she was working with a client who was interested in moving into the area. She also knocked on doors and dropped off her card to a few she knew would be considering that option soon. We ended up with a fabulous home. Because Dani had done such a tremendous job finding our new property we listed our original house with her. Again, she did an outstanding job keeping us informed on the market conditions in our area, comps, timing when to sell and how to "spruce-up" our home for a quick sale. After one open house weekend, we received 4 strong offers and closed escrow in 21 days. We would not hesitate to recommend Dani to our closest friends.
Andy W./ Buyer
Dani helped my wife and I with a complicated short sale. She admirably handled the complex negotiations between our funders and the sellers bank. The house was in an "as-is" state so we needed to know the difference between cosmetic repairs and major structural flaws. Dani lined up an array of thorough inspections at reasonable cost which gave us piece of mind on the condition of the house. For the repairs we did need to make, she found contractors at very reasonable rates. She also recommended various green practices during the repairs in order to avoid harmful emmitants from chemicals affecting our 11-mo old son. Short sales usually have an attractive price but are potentially frought with issues. You need a good agent to navigate these issues. With Dani's help we managed to get a great deal on a house that was more than we had hoped for. I've worked with other realtors before and none compare to the degree of thoroughness and oversight that Dani exhibited. I recommend her highly.
Bill & Michelle F./ Buyer & Seller
We had been unhappy with our previous real estate representation and were looking for an agent that had our needs in mind, and the skills and experience to see that those needs were met. After meeting with Dani for the first time, we realized she was the one for us. She is very personable, easy to talk with, and if there is something about the home-buying or selling process that isn’t clear, she helps you understand it. She had a very good knowledge of all the neighborhoods we were thinking about buying into, and had practical knowledge about kinds of houses, materials, etc.
After we had found exactly what we were looking for, Dani, using her expert and intuitive negotiating skills, was able to strategize counter-offers so that we got the best possible price for the house. Along with her bargaining talents, she has the ability to make results happen quickly. Quite a few times we had left a late meeting with her saying she’d call the seller’s agent in the morning, only to find a phone message from her when we got home the same night saying that she’d already done it. Our home-buying experience was seamless from start to finish, and we have already recommended her to co-workers and a neighbor who is thinking of moving. Dani takes the time to get it right: she understands what you want and then goes out and gets results quickly.
Randy C./ Seller
It is with sincere gratitude that I express my deep appreciation for all your efforts assisting my Mother and I in selling her home of 45 years, and in purchasing a new residence. Our situation became a lengthy process due to a personal set-back, which you graciously handled with understanding and the utmost patience.
Through the entire experience, you listened to us with compassion, and a true understanding of our desires. Upon the word “go”, you jumped in immediately with a wholehearted commitment. Through your tireless efforts, we successfully achieved our goal. We greatly appreciated your positive nature, professional attitude, knowledge, and unquestionable support. And, even though we knew we were not your only client, you made us feel we were, and were always available to us.
Your commitment not only to work with us, but to represent us and ensure our best interests were served, was clearly demonstrated.
With a heartfelt thanks,

Brent & Ania R./ Buyers
Thank you for helping us find our dream house! We had tried a couple of other realtors and just weren't getting the level of service and commitment that we felt we needed to get us into the neighborhood we wanted. You stuck with us through a "bizarre" sellers market, presenting our bids to the sellers even when it seemed unlikely that we'd be the "winners". You kept our spirits up and kept encouraging us not to give up when the market got even crazier. In the end, you helped us find exactly what we needed, in the area we wanted, and at a price we could afford. Even more importantly, you built a relationship with us that will certainly carry forward to the next house transaction <gulp>! We've already recommended you to some of our friends, and will continue to do so without hesitation. Thanks for all the hard work!
Maha A./ Seller
Thank you for your great service for the sale of our home. We were somewhat hesitant to put our house on the market during the holidays, but with your solid understanding of the real estate business, you definetely steered us in the right direction. Because of your tiredless guidance, we were able to stage our home for buyer viewing. We received many compliments, both from potential buyers and their agents, about how well our home showed. From the first day you put our home on the market through even the close of bid acceptance, we received a large number of interested buyers to view it. Clearly you advertised our home well and displayed a high level of professionalism during the two open houses. As a result, we received thirty-six bids, an extremely high number, on our home within one week of putting it on the market. But your real value to us came during the negotiations of offers. You spent your evening with us reviewing offers and navigating us through counter offers, until we arrived at a final offer that was fair and satisfying not only to us, the sellers, but to the buyers as well. And during all this you also spent time entertaining our two-year old! Without a doubt, I would highly recommend you (and already have!) to anyone who plans to sell their home or buy one.
Carey P./ Seller
Can you believe we have only known each other for six weeks? Who would have thought that in that time we would have made a plan, implemented the plan, cleared out the house, got it in salable condition, sold (with multiple offers and for more than the asking price) and closed all in that time frame. It has to be a record with the condition the house was in!
We had been stressing over how we were going to get that house sold and I can’t tell you how relieved we were when you showed up for our meeting and immediately put our minds at ease with your kind and knowledgeable manner. It was obvious to us that you knew exactly what you were doing and what needed to be done to get our parents home sold as quickly as possible. I must admit that I doubted some of the decisions made, but soon learned that I was looking at everything from an inexperienced “personal” view and that you knew exactly what was needed.
I appreciate all the efforts you made, in every aspect of the process, knowing our particular situation, from giving us direction as to what we needed to do. You were wonderful about explaining what needed to be done next and why, and helped every chance you could, from meeting me after work to going over forms with me and ensuring they were filled out accurately and completely, to putting things up on Craigslist for us, and even pulling the garbage cans in for us when we couldn’t get over to the house…. Unbelievable!
You were a blessing from the start, and made the whole experience seamless and easy. I knew I had nothing to worry about, as it was quickly apparent from your sweet nature and efficient ways, that you had everything under control throughout the whole process.
Thank you so much for the constant dedication you put into this whole process and for ensuring that the outcome exceeded our expectations! When the opportunity comes along again for us to sell our home, we will DEFINITELY be giving you a call!
Dave & Debra D./ Buyers
We would like to express our tremendous appreciation for the assistance you provided during our recent relocation to California from Tennessee. As we were new to the area we relied on recommendations from co-workers in seeking a real estate agent. You were highly referenced as a 'top-notch' agent and one that would work diligently to help us. Ultimately, our entire success in the purchase of ''just the right' home is attributed to you. Your honesty, patience and expertise are most noteworthy. The additional guidance you gave us as transitioned Californians was most thoughtful and beneficial. We value the experience we shared with you as our agent and extend the highest praise for your contributions.
Ta G./ Seller & Buyer
It has truly been a pleasure working with you over these last few months. You have the most wonderful, upbeat attitude which was instrumental in keeping me grounded during this crazy process. I really appreciate all of your patience and most of all your diligence in finding the right buyer for my house. I wouldn't have stuck it out in this market if it wasn't for you. You have a gift for making your clients feel as if they are your only client. Being in a service industry myself, I know how important that is and it did not go unnoticed! You really went above and beyond the call of duty not only in negotiating a great deal on the purchase of my new home, but also moving my town home in a really difficult market. You are the best!
Finally, thank you for your patience with my crazy household of cats. We are all going to miss seeing you, but we do promise to keep in touch!
Thanks for everything!
Trisha O./ Buyer
I wanted to drop a line to send a thank you for being there for me when I really needed someone who cared enough to help me step by step through the rough and confusing road of buying a home. What a difference you made! I am honored to say to all my friends who purchased a home before me "I have no nightmare stories to tell, I have Dani Bitter." One could not ask for more than what you genuinely gave. I will always remember you as the guardian angel who guided me through the purchase of my first home.
