Having sold over $100 million in the past 12 months alone, Dane Soderberg is the highest-performing Compass agent in San Diego—and launched the company’s La Jolla division. He consistently ranks amongst the top 1% of the more than 25,000 licensed real estate agents in San Diego County year after year.
Dane’s success stems from one simple concept: he listens. He is genuinely interested in why you want to sell, what your ideal time frame is and how you envision your future. By understanding the intricacies of pricing and value, and how to keep emotion in check, he gracefully navigates even the most complex transaction.
When you partner with Dane, you get access to his vast local network of fellow agents, homebuyers, sellers and best-in-class vendors. This exceptional network is often the source of off-market properties that might not otherwise be available to you.
In 2018, Dane and his team were selected as exclusive sales agents by the developer of MUSE La Jolla—a chic 16-unit coastal condominium. The team designed a fresh marketing strategy, provided luxury staging, created a public relations campaign and sold 14 units in just 13 months. Dane’s team set a La Jolla sales price record of $3,644.50 per square foot.
A San Diego Association of Realtors Circle of Excellence honoree, Dane received Platinum awards in both 2018 and 2017 for sales in excess of $50 million, and a San Diego Business Journal Best of San Diego award both years. Dane’s consistent five-star Zillow ratings speak to his expertise, attentiveness and willingness to continually surpass client expectations.
The across-the-board 5 star rating I accorded to Dane Soderberg is based on the rewarding experience I had while selling one property and buying another. I attribute the success and ease of both transactions to Dane’s attention to detail and his extraordinary organizational skills. Throughout the process, Dane gathered relevant information, responded to my questions promptly, maintained an on-going dialogue regarding the progress of our endeavors and executed documents in a timely and orderly manner. To say he’s a superb negotiator is an understatement!
Technical skills however are only one half of the equation. The common denominators are character and intent. Dane operated professionally and exhibited a high level of integrity. I never felt pressured or rushed and at every juncture Dane provided me with the information and services I needed to both sell my property at the price I hoped for and later, to find a property that met and actually exceeded my expectations.
In short, Dane’s goal is not to ‘make the sale’ but to meet the customer’s needs and expectations.
It was a pleasure working with Dane Soderberg. He did a great job selling my home, helping me with each step, preparing the house for sale, evaluating an asking price and negotiating the actual sale. The photos, video, and living room layout showed the home at its best and attracted a lot of attention. But mostly it was his courtesy, patience, and kindness that saw the sale through. He was always in touch and quick to answer any of my phone queries. He was gracious when showing the home and conscientious in the security aspects. I will be most happy to recommend him at any time to anyone wishing to buy or sell a home.
Dane is a very honest, conscientious person. He does what he says and means what he says. He is very knowledgeable and looks out for his clients needs. You will be very happy with his results. You can’t ask for a better real estate agent.
Dane is honestly Amazing! I have bought a home from him, sold a home, he helped me rent one, It is a smooth transition with him during the real estate process. He will give you honest and genuine advice and is truly sincere. He will not disappoint, there is no better out there!
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dane! As a seller one sometimes feels mixed emotions when putting their home on the market. Dane navigated these with grace and sensitivity, making the process easier on not only myself but my family, as well. He is a dependable and patient man, fielding my endless questions with exceptional knowledge and professionalism. I look forward to working with Dane in the future!
Dane came highly recommended by a friend and performed even better than advertised. Through his knowledge, persistence and counsel, we acquired our dream beach condo. We couldn’t be happier.
We had just moved to a new area and Dane was recommended to us by a friend. He immediately stepped in to understand who we were and what home would be perfect for us. As first time home buyers, we’d done a lot of research but still had a lot to learn. Dane steered us in the right direction on each issue, while making us feel empowered about all of our choices. He was never pushy, communicated with us on each issue, was always honest and 100% professional. We can’t recommend him more highly.
We have worked with Dane on multiple transactions as both a buyer and seller. Dane truly differentiates himself from other agents through a combination of several key things – market knowledge, communication skills, ability to understand and resolve the clients issues and concerns, focus, and execution.
Dane Soderberg was one of several realtors I interviewed before listing my home. He was professional in appearance and real estate knowledge. I had a prepared list of concerns and questions that I used with each realtor. Dane answered each question and raised others for my consideration. He brought specific strategies that would be tailored to my home. As I was not yet ready to market I told Dane I would follow up later. When I was prepared to list, I thought carefully about the strengths and weaknesses of each person I interviewed. Dane stood out as the right choice for me. His attention to detail, professionalism and plan for my home were key factors. He took the time to understand the unique features that set my home apart from others. As the listing and selling process unfolded, Dane included me as a partner. He respected and encouraged my questions and focus on detail. If not immediately available, he responded promptly to calls and emails. Throughout the showing and escrow period he gave guidance and recommendations to inform my decision process. On several occasions he and/or his assistant made special trips to my home to pick up or deliver documents. The level of personal service was exceptional. I felt that he clearly had my sale and my concerns on his radar. Dane represented my best interests very well. Like many, I am careful about making recommendations. Would I recommend Dane? Yes, I would, and I already have on three occasions.
Dane is a true professional. Not only does he know the area, but he helped us uncover neighborhoods we might have missed with other agents. He was a pleasure to work with and if we ever move out of the amazing home he found for us, we will be hiring him again.
Dane was excellent to work with! He was our Buyer’s Agent and also the Seller’s Listing Agent on the purchase of our home in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. He was extremely responsive to our calls and emails. Dane was also a master of the purchase/sale process and assisted us, as needed, through every step. He was an excellent negotiator, very ethical and the ultimate professional. I highly recommend Dane as both a Buyer’s Agent and/or as a Listing Agent!
Dane is the ultimate real estate professional. Our experience with him is that he has four of the most important and necessary traits: being friendly, professional, ethical, and efficient. In addition, he goes out of his way to serve, having a unique combination of a) being strategic and seeing things from a macro/overview basis and b) being hands on when necessary to solve problems big and small.
We met Dane Soderberg about 6 years ago when he helped us sell our first home. When it came time to sell our second home, we immediately contacted Dane. Even though we have personal friends that are realtors, we felt Dane had a lot of connections and solid experience with the housing market. Dane has a great way with people and is always professional and honest. He goes the extra mile and is diligent with his communication and updates. We highly recommend him.
In all my dealings with Dane I have been impressed with his thoughtfulness, intelligence, work ethic, and honesty. He really stands out as a professional and a person. He wants the best for his clients and works hard to make that happen. He knows his business and deserves his status as one of San Diego’s premier real estate agents.
