Whether buying or selling property, the experience can be filled with frustration & needless time-consuming obstacles. By helping my Clients manage events in a carefully planned, orderly fashion, their goals are often met with more satisfying results.
As a full-time Real Estate Agent, I view my role as that of a trusted adviser. Its critical to explore my Client's criteria (listen & qualify their needs & wants), devise a plan (identify & execute steps) to help them achieve their goals, monitor & offer guidance to ensure informed / educated decisions are made that lead to a successful conclusion.
Through continuous education, I ensure a high level of service to my Clients - by staying current of North Carolina Real Estate Commission regulatory changes, & by maintaining a thorough knowledge of the area & market, local rules & regulations, & resources whose services contribute to my Client's successful property transaction.
For years, Southeast Brunswick County has been a big part of my life. Shortly after hurricane Hazel stormed our coast, my dad & other family members drove from Durham & bought center island lots at Long Beach, NC (now Oak Island). Soon small cinderblock houses popped up where we vacationed as often as possible. Mornings were spent slicing the Intracoastal Water way on slolams & afternoons were reserved for challenging waves on dime store rafts. Since moving here, my life has gotten even better through helping others explore the tranquil days & uncomplicated lifestyle of coastal living. The wind, waves & gulls provide an alluring symphony drawing visitors back year-after-year. Did you hear their call? Come, discover & make this your new home!

Dan was a terrific help to us in buying our house. He routinely went above and beyond in explaining things, answering questions, searching out other answers, and walking us through the entire process. His enthusiasm was infectious, his patience was unbounded, and his energy was seemingly unlimited. We could not have asked for more from a real estate man and Dan provided to us.

Dan is the best realtor we have ever worked with! He is amazing and professional...he anticipates and handles everything for you. He will go above and beyond...he treats you as his utmost priority and makes you feel like you and your needs are at the top of his 'to do' list. On top of that...he is genuinely one of the nicest individuals we've met. We highly recommend giving him a call.

Dan is the ultimate professional. He communicated with us frequently and there was never a delay or lack of information. He listened to what we wanted to accomplish and then showed great initiative in helping us to reach our goals. We had a very limited window of time in which to work and he was instrumental in achieving our goals.

My experience with Dan Riley selling my mother's home was exceptional. Dan is an absolute pro. I found him to be available any time I needed to ask a question, voice a concern, or make a request of him. I would choose Dan over and over again to handle any and all real estate transactions I could possibly have in the future. Top notch!!! Dan exceeded expectations in every way!

Dan Riley is a high-energy realtor who simply gets things done without pushing you. When you are ready to make a deal, he's got his stuff ready to go and you just don't have to wait for him - which can be crucial sometimes. He knows the NC beaches and he knows the values of homes and condos - his family has been at Oak island since the early 1950s.
Simply the most competent realtor I've worked with. And he's fun to ride around with, too !

Dan Riley made purchasing my home at Holden Beach an absolute breeze. Once he was aware of the type of home I wanted, the requirements, etc., he found the absolute perfect place; as soon as I walked into the home, I knew immediately it was the one. After a brief walkthrough the next morning, we completed the contract. Dan stayed in lock-step throughout the inspection process, the approval process, and through closing. Without Dan's expertise and his high-level of attention to the transaction, it would not have been possible to have such a hassel-free closing.
I strongly recommend Dan for any and all of your real estate needs....in fact, I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Being new to the area, we were very reliant on Dan's expertise and knowledge. He did not let us down. We purchased the best home in the best neighborhood. Additionally Dan's ethics and honesty are impeccable. It was a pleasure to work with him.

We would highly recommend Dan. He is very knowledgeable about Real Estate in the area. He was able to secure the lot of our dreams, within 48 hours. We have had an excellent experience during this process, and Dan keeps us up to date on any new developments. We feel very fortunate to have him as our Realtor.

We expressly appreciate the hard work and dedication in negotiating the contract, connecting us with a lender and getting pre-approval, helping with the inspection, and even checking on how our house fared after a hurricane that came across the property before closing. We highly recommend Dan Riley. He is professional, has a good sense of humor, lots of patience for our questions, and was very understanding of our needs and wishes.

Dan arranged for lovely photos to be taken of our lot. The marsh grass was at its peak and someone will really love this lot. We have also looked at houses Dan has listed, and he staffs them with courteous and helpful agents.

Dan was a fabulous help in our finding and purchasing just the right house for us. He was responsive to our interests, adaptable to our rather limited schedule and extremely patient and cheerful in the process. He gave us a great deal of helpful information about the area and excellent advice. His help in the purchase process and in arranging needed repairs to the home that we purchased was invaluable. We cannot recommend him highly enough! :)

Dan went above and beyond the realm of what most people think is good customer service. His attention to detail and quick response time to all of our questions was amazing. We can't wait for our friends tomorrow get to town so they can work with him as well. Thank you Dan!!

Mr. Riley is an excellent realtor. I had a come across a few people that he had worked with in the past and decided to reach out to him in regards to renting in the area as it is a very tough area to navigate. He immediately ran through the options he had on hand and was very quick about returning any calls and answering any questions or concerns. We didn't find anything that fit but we will definitely call him again when we are ready.

Dan Riley was our buyer agent. He worked with us on the purchase of a condominium at Dolphin Shores in Supply, NC. He was very reliable, experienced, keeping attention to detail as a priority. His follow up with our every concern was met with professionalism. I would not hesitate to call on him again for realtor assistance.

Dan Riley served as my real estate agent in 2016 when I purchased a waterfront home in Sunset Beach, N.C. From the first visit to the property to the closing to the celebrations at my new home, he was helpful every step of the way. Dan Riley is the greatest!

After having my house on the market for 4 months with little activity, I switched to Dan as my agent. I started averaging 5 showings a week and within 4 weeks had 2 acceptable offers. Dan was extremely diligent in marketing my home. He was thorough, professional and always courteous. He stayed right on top of the closing to mske msure all issues were covered with no surprises. Dan is also very easy to work with and offers excellent advice when negotiating an offer. I would strongly recommend Dan as my selling agent.
