Dan and Mary Kay were a pleasure to work with. Communication was always prompt and clear. They were responsive at all times, plus highly organized and meticulous. We would not hesitate to work with them again. Having worked with numerous agents over the past forty years, we can say definitively that they are a cut above! Give them a call. 👍🏻😃
We are one year out from our closing with Dan and Mary Kay on our home. When we received something unexpected in the mail… A postcard congratulating us on one year in our home. When I think about our experience with Dan and Mary Kay: this is such a direct reflection of the attention to detail they have had throughout the entire process of buying our home. Dan literally set up showings at houses that I just had to see even if I wasn’t positive they’d be “the one”. They were so patient with us and our three small children. Not a single stone was left unturned. They burnt midnight oil on multiple occasions helping us negotiate and draft offers. I felt Dan provided an excellent level headed negotiation process and was respectful and respectable even when interacting with difficult personality styles. He did an excellent job communicating with us and other agents and kept us well informed throughout a stressful process for us. Mary Kay had keen attention to detail and went above and beyond with helping us stage and “de-clutter” I carried many of her tips and tricks into our new home and am living more harmoniously in our new home because of all I learned from her. They compliment one another well and are a team you would recommend again and again. They truly want you to have longevity in your home and even after the transition closed they have been a resource for contractors and other well known professionals in the area. They seem to be well known by these individuals and respected by them as well which speaks volumes. They truly are head and shoulders above our previous real estate experiences and have set the bar high for any future real estate transactions if we were unable to use them. I 10/10 recommend them.
Dan made selling our house so easy!
Tommy and Janet Crump
I would highly recommend Dan Rath as a Realtor. He went over and beyond the call of duty to help us when purchasing our home. We asked to see the house numerous times and he always found the time for us. Dan answered our many questions professionally and quickly. He helped from the beginning to the end; including help with various bank issues/questions and also with the lawyers for closing. Dan was very knowledgeable, a great negotiator between buyer and seller and an all around pleasant person to work with during this transaction.
Linda and Pete Burris
We were most impressed with the professionalism that Dan Rath showed in the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home. He immediately answered any questions and requests we made. He was with us every step of the way in all the closing procedures. We highly recommend him to anyone.
Kathy and Scott Hickinbotham
Absolutely was a great experience! Dan & MaryKay helped us with all the important details from pre-listing updates, to decluttering suggestions, to pricing. We were sad to leave our home & neighborhood, but Dan & MK really made it a good experience.
Dan was awesome! Really went the extra mile on every step. Found someone who would be able to do financing when I was almost sure things were not going to work out. Got a solid rate and he helped make sure things closed on time. This was a HUD home and he really know how everything worked and made sure we would close on time.
Dan and MaryKay are amazing. I can't sing Dan's praises enough. His response time to emails-big or small was remarkably fast. The electronic signing capabilities that he was well versed in made negotiations seamless. I truly felt like Dan was looking out for my best interest throughout the whole process of buying our first home from suggesting appraisers and a lending group! We ended up closing on our house early because Dan went out of his way to find another attorney, when ours was unavailable. Since buying in August Dan has been very helpful with questions after the purchase. He and MaryKay even sent us an ornament with our first home on it for Christmas! It is very obvious that they care about their clients.
I initially met Dan when he responded to an inquiry I submitted on line about a property. He was very easy to work with, he wasn't pushy, but he was very knowledgeable about the areas I was looking at houses in. He also has a great eye for the small details that a new home buyer may overlook. Since this was my first home buying experience, I was glad to have him on my team! I eventually ended up building a house in a somewhat newer community, and he was there every step of the way facilitating the process.
Kelly and Rusty Walser
Dan was fantastic he really helped my husband and I a lot during the process, gave us great tips for remembering houses we liked, good neighborhoods, etc. He honestly was very willing to show us as many homes as well as times that were convenient for me and my husband. If you are looking to buy a home I highly recommend Dan and MaryKay as they are all very professional and hard working individuals to help you find just what you want in a home.
Patrice and Matt Williams
Dan was amazing to work with. He helped us with both selling our old home and buying our new one. He was thorough, knew the area and neighborhoods well, attentive and responsive. He made the process fun and we couldn't have asked for better guidance and are so thankful for his hard work. We'd recommend him HIGHLY! Thanks for everything Dan!!!
Dan and his wife MaryKay made the sell of my townhouse SO pleasant. Trying to sell a house in difficult times is very stressful, but these two were great? They knew the area good; she helped with staging ideas. They always responded to phone calls and e-mails quickly. They were able to recommend someone very trustworthy to do some painting for me. In addition to what they did for me and helping me get my house sold, they were ALSO able to recommend an agent closer and more familiar to the area where my mother's house is (which is for sell). Very trustworthy & extremely personable.
Dan Rath with his wife MaryKay have real estate expertise above and beyond the agents found today. They can assess a situation where a home is not selling and develop a stategy to achieve a sale. They can successfully manage a renovation project, at low cost and on budget. They are skilled at obtaining tradesmen to do jobs at fair and responsible costs, while managing the projects themselves. This eliminates markup from a contractor, subcontracting out the work. I was very pleased with Dan and Mary Kay. I recommend them highly.
Laura and John Zielke
Dan Rath was extremely helpful in assisting us with purchasing our house. We were living in Nevada, and he was here in North Carolina. We had found a house, and Dan was extremely helpful and accommodating by allowing our friends to view the house multiple times. He also took a ton of pictures for us, created a virtual walk-through, and even drew a floor plan for us so we could truly "visualize" the house. He walked us through the bidding process (it was a HUD foreclosure) and helped us secure the house for our family. Once we were here, he followed up to make sure everything was as we expected and even gave us a little housewarming present (the framed floor plan)! We would highly recommend Dan and his team to anyone looking for a house in the area.
Robin and Chuck Plunkett
Our experience with Dan and MaryKay was top notch. If there is one word that describes working with an agent it is TRUST. We felt like WE were the most important part of the transaction. Some agents seem only interested in the commission they are going to make. With the Raths we could see our needs and interests were the most important goals. We have referred Dan and MaryKay several times and think this should be your first telephone call when you need to sell or a buy a new home!
Rhoda and Clay Walkup
Dan provided very helpful and patient expertise through a very complicated sales process that involved our company's process along with local challenges that were unexpected along the way. He was responsiveness to our numerous questions and we were very pleased with the end result.
I want to let everyone know that Dan Rath is a true real estate professional. We have had multiple experiences with Dan & have been extremely satisfied. If you are tired of NOT being able to get in contact with your Realtor, Dan is your guy. He works hard & gets results.
Josephine and Paul Monaghan
I have worked with Dan Rath for over five years in both purchasing and selling properties. Dan has a thorough knowledge of the real estate industry, has always been responsive to any questions that I may have, works hard to get the deal done, and has negotiated some great contracts for me. I plan to utilize his services for all my future real estate needs and would highly recommend his services to others.
Mandy and Damian Guido
Dan helped us sell and buy a house. He was always professional and patient. He answered our questions promptly. He will help me sell my present home and help me get my next one too!
Asma Zakiuddin and Talha Mukaddam
My husband and I had a wonderful experience with The Spouses that Sell Houses in purchasing our first home. As first-time home-buyers we felt that our best interest was held as a priority and they were very willing to help us make wise decisions and explain/guide us through concepts that we were not familiar with in the buying process. Their availability and professionalism was impressive. We would certainly recommend the Dan and MaryKay to anyone looking to purchase a home and plan to use them again with any future purchases.
Jim and Margie Davis
Dan has helped my family purchase several houses over the last 3 years both for residence and investment. He is very knowledgeable about the area and understands the market very well. He is also able to navigate you through difficult purchases (Short sales, foreclosures, HUD homes). Anyone can show you a house, Dan can help you find a home.
MayKay and Steve Hirst
Dan and MaryKay Rath were very professional. They helped us list our house, giving expert counsel. They carefully inspected the house and told us any necessary changes in repairs, look, and even staging. This ensured we were not spending money unnecessarily. Dan provided detailed charts to assist us in determining the highest, but still sellable price. As a results, in a very difficult market, the 11th person that toured our home, bought it. Dan and MaryKay Rath also helped us find our current home which fits our needs exactly. Then they skillfully guided us in every step from, inspections, lawyers, and even the bank to nail down the best interest rates. I loved our old home, but I love our new home even better. I would and already have recommended Dan and MaryKay Rath to my friends to be their Premier Agent as well.
Love working with Dan! Dan and Mary Kay helped us to stage our home and sell our home. Dan also helped us to purchase a home. I HIGHLY recommend Dan as he is honest, helpful, very accessible and just extremely nice!
Sydney and Kautilya Vats
Dan is one of the best buyers agent I have worked with. He helps you make the right decision and guide you through the entire closing process. He is very knowledgeable about the market and very easy to work with.
Dr Nate and Ashley Lata
My husband and I were moving to Winston-Salem from Kansas City. We knew nothing about the town and less about the housing market. This was our first time buying a house, so we wanted to make sure we chose someone who was experienced and knowledgeable about the area. Dan and MaryKay immediately made us feel comfortable. He took time to get to know our housing criteria, price range, neighborhood preference etc. He sent us a list of houses on the market that fit all of our criteria shortly after our talk. Once we were able to make the visit to Winston-Salem Dan wasted no time to show the houses we had previously viewed online. My husband and I really liked the way Dan gave us space and time to view the houses on our own. He also gave us an information sheet about the house that we could view as we walked around. We looked at over 35 houses in a 3 day time span. Dan and his team were always flexible with our wishes and answered all of our questions with detail. Dan was even patient to let us go back the house we loved on three separate occasions. After deciding we wanted to put an offer down Dan was able to negotiate an excellent price. Unfortunately, we had to leave before the paperwork was final. However, Dan and MaryKay took care of every single step and when we moved in a few months later the house was ours and hassle free! The process was absolutely seamless and extremely stress free. I believe this was due to the professionalism and experience we got from Dan and MaryKay. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a smooth home buying experience. When we sell our house, I know exactly who I will use!
Dr. Michael and Stephanie Seem
As an incoming medical resident, I was unfamiliar with the area of Winston-Salem, and didn’t have much time to devote to house hunting. I was very fortunate that my wife and I were recommended Dan. He was extremely familiar of the area and gave advice from where to eat to which insurance agent would best fit our needs. We were most impressed, though, that Dan treated us like his own family. Having a daughter in residency, he knew what we are about to experience and took a personal approach to our home buying experience. Particularly, he looked out for us, making sure that we ended up in the best neighborhood and in the house of our dreams. He was involved in every aspect of our house buying, and even stepped in when we couldn’t make the 6-hour drive during medical school for our walkthrough. He was incredibly knowledgeable in his area of work and helped my wife and I, who are first time home buyers, feel very comfortable with the entire process. We cannot thank him enough for all of his hard work and dedication.
I had to purchase a house during a very stressful stage of my life and needed help from someone I could trust to look out for my best interest. Dan Rath is a knowledgeable, professional agent who guided me through this ever changing process, always looking after my best interest. I felt very comfortable leaving all the hard work to Dan. I relied heavily on his opinions and help and I couldn't be happier with my new home. I will call on him again in the future when I need to make another house transaction and highly recommend you consider doing the same.
Dan and Mary Kay have been WONDERFUL to work with over the past few years! Moving across states to an area that you know nothing about can be very stressful. But, they made our transition to Winston Salem a breeze. They were able to find us a home in a great location and negotiate the price below asking. They've also given us helpful direction on how to remodel our home for better selling price in the future. We adore this sweet couple and their amazing work ethic. Thanks Dan and Mary Kay!
Very pleasant to work with and very skilled agents!
Patrice Crump Williams
We used Dan and MaryKay to both sell our old home and buy our new one. They were amazing from start to finish. They really know the area and were so helpful in every step of the process. Dan is so responsive to questions and quick to get showing appointments for houses you're interested in. I'm so thankful for an easy, pleasant experience. Highly recommend!
After my father passed away, Dan and MaryKay Rath worked long distance with me to sell my dad’s house outside of Winston-Salem. They provided top-notch professional advice and services from start to finish, covering every necessary base and then some. Dan advised on initial appraisal and pricing, arranged for house repairs and inspections, handled advertising and showings, and represented my best interests during negotiations straight through closing. Dan sold the house for a solid price and was exceptionally responsive and kind during a tough time in my life. Taking on my business as though it was their very own, Dan and MaryKay ensured my peace of mind. They are skilled real estate agents and a fine human beings. I can’t recommend their services highly enough.
Dan, & MaryKay, I appreciate all your help and advice and… I’m as gladas you are that the house is sold! Yeah!
Dr Levi and Mandy Kaufman
Moving from out of state, we only had 3 days to find and buy a house. Dan's experience and knowledge of the area, along with his patient personality, helped us find the perfect place for our family. Thank you Dan! We highly recommend you to everyone!
Chris and Christi Arceneaux
We would probably still be searching for our first home if not for Dan and MaryKay! Christi and I were looking for our first home to start our lives together. They were so helpful in working with us as first time home buyers. They were so patient with what must have been a ton of question. We looked at several homes and finally decided on the perfect home in High Point, NC. We have lived here for a few months and still love it as much, as the day we found it!
Thanks Dan and MaryKay!
Thank you MaryKay for helping me choose the colors, flooring, cabinetry, etc. I am grateful to Dan for helping me choose the lot and for driving by and taking pictures as the house was being built. The book you put together is a treasured gift. It takes a village to build a house for me. I am grateful to each one of you for your assistance in making my dream a reality."
I was highly pleased with the services of Dan Rath and Mary Kay in selling my home. We had an offer just over two weeks. Their professional knowledge did so much in relieving me of stress and anxiety, from negotiating the selling price, to advance preparation for the closing, to delivering the check to me. I would certainly recommend them to anyone thinking about selling their home.
Maggie and Matt Ward
Dan and MaryKay answered all our emails, calls and texts. We couldn't have done this without you guys!
Tom, Pennie and Freda
Thank you, Dan and MaryKay for all your help with purchasing my house. As a first time home owner, you've answered every question I had. Everything went so smoothly! Thank you again for all your help!!
Jeff and Feon Shu
As a first time home buyer, The Dan Rath Group has been phenomenally helpful and easy to work with. My wife and I were a little nervous going through the process of looking for a home since we did not know what to expect. Dan and MaryKay Rath made the process very smooth and was extremely informative in making sure we were well informed on every detail of the process. They will go the extra mile. Would recommend THE SPOUSES WHO SELL HOUSES'
Zach and Kelsey Fleming
We are so thankful for Dan and all his help in the process for finding the right home for us. He showed us so many great homes and gave us all of information we needed regarding the entire Winston-Salem area. We were blessed by his expertise and many years of experience with real estate. Thanks Dan!
Steve and Kay-Lynn Hirst
Dan and MaryKay Rath's responsiveness, understanding of the real estate process, and relationships within the community helped us get a contract within two days of listing. Throughout our experience, we knew they had other clients, but we always felt like we were a priority.
Matthew and Miriam James
We are grateful for the persistence, patience, and knowledge that Dan provided. I would encourage you to select Dan with his calm demeanor to assist you through what can be a stressful and anxious experience
We had been searching for our dream home for almost a year when I finally found Dan Rath. Little did we know that God had sent him to us. Because in less than a week we had found the home we had been looking for and it's all thanks to Dan's hard work to make sure we was happy. Dan is by far the the most professional and kindest realtor we meet on our journey.
The Hawkins Family
Dan did an outstanding job when we sold a family property. He was enjoyable to work with due to his easy demeanor and professionalism. Dan took a lot of the stress out of the process and made navigating a challenging housing market painless. We will definitely use him again in the future and have already recommended him to a number of people.
David and Michelle Barson
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Dan Rath after being relocated to Winston-Salem from Upstate New York. Dan has many years of experience in the Piedmont Triad market and it was evident through his extensive knowledge of the areas and the relationships he had with other professionals in the marketplace.
We went house hunting with Dan multiple times to search for homes and while he gave us the opportunity to explore each home, neighborhood and community and share our thoughts and opinions he was sure to provide feedback and insight on each of those categories. The back and forth among the three of us is what helped lead us to making the right choice for our family.
Without Dan’s help we would not have felt as confident moving to a new state and buying a house within just six months.
I would strongly recommend Dan Rath, as would my wife, for the home buying process and we plan on utilizing his services when it comes time to sell and then buy again.
This is our third home and of all the Realtors we have worked with he is the ONLY one that we would recommend.
Brenda and Mike
Working with Dan and MaryKay in finding our Home has been a great pleasure. They understood what we were looking for, listened to our needs and actively helped select houses for us to see.
Over the months we spent looking , Dan was more than just a professional REALTOR, but a friend looking out for our best interests.
I’m so grateful to Dan for making my first time home-buying experience remarkable and something I’ll never forget! He was always extremely responsive and patient when I had questions as well as very prompt during our scheduled meet-ups. I would highly recommend him the next time you are buying or selling your house.
Charles G Beeker
Dan and Mary Kay were great to work with. Both are very knowledgeable and informative and responsive.They were all anyone could ask for in a agent.
Dan was an excellent agent for when I was searching for and then buying my new home. He knows the ins and outs of real estate and because of this can provide excellent advice to his clients. I felt comfortable working with him because he provided quick responses to my questions and was always a step ahead when any issues came up during the buying process. If you are looking to buy or list I would wholeheartedly recommend using Dan Rath as your agent.
We are so thankful for Dan’s expertise and patience!! We looked at so many homes with him and I really appreciated how he allowed my husband and I to get our feel for a home and then gave his input about things that we may not have considered. He was invested in us as a couple and homeowners and helped steer us away from homes that didn’t fit our family/taste without being overbearing. I felt comfortable trusting his opinion of the safety, resale value, value/price of our new home. It gave me comfort that he was as excited about the home as we were. Once under contract, Dan got us through all the negotiations painlessly. I highly recommend Dan Rath if looking to buy a home in the Winston-Salem area!!!
Dan and MaryKay are responsive, thorough, and compassionate realtors. I was looking to buy my first home in an unfamiliar city, and they offered their decades of experience and knowledge of the area so I could choose the best location. When we found a home, they walked me through every step of the process, and were always available when I had questions or concerns. Dan and MaryKay navigated a for-sale-by-owner sale with kindness and consideration for both me and for the seller, who remains as my neighbor. They recognized how tenuous that relationship could be since new owner and seller will continue to interact for years to come. When I closed on the house, Dan offered me names of trusted contractors to do repairs, and MaryKay advised on paint and countertop choices. I couldn't conceive of having better realtors to walk me through my first home buying experience, from initial search to move in. I would, and will, recommend them to any family looking for their future home.
The sale of our home and purchase of a new one with Dan and Mary Kay Rath were both smooth and pleasurable experiences. Dan and Mary Kay were both very supportive and helpful.
Michael & Jill Bennett
We used Dan Rath years ago and were extremely pleased with the experience. When the time finally came for us to start hunting for our potential forever home Dan was at the top of the list. From start to finish we were extremely please with the entire experience. House hunting can be an extremely stressful experience but we did not find it to be that at all. Dan invested into knowing what we were looking for, offered input and guidance that we valued, and went the extra mile to help us find the information we needed quickly so that we could make informed decisions.
Janis F Tingle
Without hesitation, I would recommend Alan Tate Realty’s Dan and Mary Kay Rath as a team that genuinely works in the best interest of their client(s). I have not been disappointed with their scrutiny of every aspect of the sale. Added to their business acumen is their caring approach to all parties involved in the buying/selling process.
Joseph & Riana Barker
Dan is absolutely fantastic. We could not have asked for a better realtor. He will go above and beyond for you to get everything you asked for. He did such an amazing job helping us buy our first home that we used him again to buy our forever home, while also selling our current place. If we ever need something in the future, he would undoubtedly be our first choice.
I've worked with Dan twice now in purchasing a new home and both times have been an excellent experience. He works tirelessly to make sure you are fairly represented and answered my questions in a timely manner. If anyone is looking to buy or sell their home Dan should be at the top of their list to work with.
Dan was great to work with. The process was seamless, and he was always very helpful and informative. I definitely recommend Dan, and anyone else at Allen Tate, if you are thinking of buying/selling your home! Their customer service is the best. I will be back to use them, if ever I need it again!
We were lucky enough to find Dan Rath in 2015 when we were first moving to Winston Salem. He helped us purchase a house on a very tight schedule and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. He later helped us sell the same house, and buy another two years later. He is very knowledgable, patient and truly has your best interests in mind. He knows the Winston Salem area very well. Dan and Mary Kay are wonderful realtors and even better people. Wouldn't hesitate to use them again and recommend them to anyone.
Wow! Made buying a house such a breeze! I was new to home buying, and have heard horror stories from friends and family about terrible agents. Dan was professional and personal! He never made me feel uncomfortable and helped me every step of the way! He kept the process as stress free as possible and without him I would be in such an amazing new house that also met my husband’s special needs.
