Dan is a serial entrepreneur with decades of experience in high tech, food manufacturing, and durable goods. He had his fifteen minutes of fame in 2012 with an appearance on ABC's Shark Tank. Over time, Dan realized that his passion was working with people, instead of managing them. This calling led him to real estate. Leveraging his diverse business experience in due diligence, negotiation, and sales, Dan enjoys helping folks navigate what is often the largest and most complex transactions of their lives. On a personal level, Dan is authentic and direct, but also patient and ready to listen. He lives by the lake in Colchester with his wife, Katrina, a rotating cast of four kids, and Queen Bea, one very spoiled cat.


As first-time home buyers, we were fortunate to have found Dan! The process was overwhelming at times and Dan was incredibly helpful and responsive throughout each step. He is personable, has a great sense of humor, and was very open and flexible when a need or change arose. Even after our closing, Dan was responsive with minor concerns or questions that came up. We enjoyed working with Dan and felt a genuine connection and great relationship from start to closing. We especially appreciated his ability to keep cool and calm despite the seller's realtor having an unpleasant demeanor. We would strongly recommend him to those searching for a home whether you are first-time or experienced buyers!
Dan was great to work with: very responsive and flexible, with good local knowledge of the area where we were looking. His candid opinions were helpful in assessing a property and making an offer. He handled the somewhat complicated admin tasks associated with having several owners purchasing a property, coordinating the on-line documents, etc. And, not that this is necessarily important in a Realtor...but he is also funny...!
We are first time home buyers, so the process of purchasing a home was completely new to us. We began our search by simply browsing on Zillow, and was referred to Dan Holtz by a listing agent of a house we were interested in. Given the current state of the market, we knew that there would be challenges to buying a home. Dan helped us become competitive buyers in a tough market, and guided us through what to expect as we went through the steps once we were under contract. The referrals he gave were equally exceptional, and made finding the professionals needed along the way simple. Overall, Dan was a valued and supportive representative in this process! Highly recommend!
I was a first-time home seller tasked with selling my mother’s house. I interviewed multiple listing agents. Dan’s market proposal was unique, made more sense, and really stood out from the other cookie cutter listing agent proposals. As per Dan’s plan we had a plenty of high quality, qualified, extremely generous offers to pick from within 10 days. As with any transaction with different personalities there were a few wrinkles before closing, Dan remained calm, focused and offered seasoned rational advise and options. Dan’s broad based business experience was a tangible difference maker. I highly recommend Dan Holtz as a listing agent. The combination of Dan and the rest of the team at Ridgeline Real Estate ensures the best possible outcome with your real estate sale.
