Danny just recently helped me purchase a Lake Union houseboat. He was absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend him. He is extremely responsive, professional, and is well informed and connected. Any issues that came up were handled quickly and with my best interest in mind. I will definitely be a return customer.
We had the pleasure of working with Danny on a challenging off market property sale. Danny has some of the best knowledge of and relationships with floating home owners….more than any other realtor in our experience. That expertise enabled us to secure a specific, off market floating home. Danny was tenacious and creative throughout the process. Danny Varona matches the property opportunity with the best buyer.
Danny Varona is a master of his craft.
While I have bought and sold a few pieces of real-estate, this is the first floating home I have purchased and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Danny had a competent answer for every question I had or found the answer extremely quickly. He was an expert negotiator — during all parts of the transaction — and offered up creative solutions to get the home at the right price in an extremely competitive market without just throwing more money at it and waiving every contingency. His knowledge of the local market is remarkable as well as how connected he is to the community, both of owners and industry professionals. I have no doubt, an offer submitted by Danny is another mark in the 'pro' column when being reviewed by a seller.
Danny is calm, intelligent, super nice, and was willing to help guide us through the process; I always felt he had our best interest as his main motivation.
If you are looking to buy on Lake Union, Danny Varona should be your guy:)
Danny is the best! We are really happy with our new floating home purchase. Danny was easy to work with, competent and extremely helpful during the entire real estate search and purchase. Buying a new home is really stressful and it was wonderful to work with someone really knowledgeable and helpful that we could trust.

Danny Varona-Marin was our real estate agent in selling our houseboat. He guided us through all the changes and obstacles that were going through the real estate market during this period of time. And we had to sell it in time to avoid a significant income tax penalty. Through his efforts and knowledge of the current market we are happy to say he did so!!!! WHAT A RELIEF! We highly recommended this fellow without any hesitation. He is kind, easy to work with, and smart.
Danny, is responsive, knowledgeable, kind, honest, easy going, and personable. What else could you want when making a big decision. Also, inspections, were set up promptly and he made sure to fit around my schedule.
When I became serious about selling my houseboat of 23 years, I studied the market for what I thought was the most effective advertising in home sales. I was drawn to the quality and professional appeal of Realogics Sotheby's marketing, Danny Varona's listings in particular. Selling my houseboat was the biggest financial decision I've made. I wanted the best agent to represent me in this endeavor. Danny turned out to be that person. Danny patiently worked with my timing, made suggestions for reasonable home improvements, and set me up with contractors to do the work. As part of my move, I had to relocate a large canoe across town, and had no clue how I would do it. Danny took the problem off my hands and moved it himself. I was so grateful to have one less problem to solve. I truly appreciated Danny's calm manner navigating sticky situations and negotiating relentlessly on my behalf for the best possible outcome in the sale of my home.
Danny was an absolute pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend him. From start to finish, he was professional, responsive, friendly, and ultimately was the key to our finding & purchasing a floating home. He listened and thoroughly understood the (very!) specific things we were looking for. With that knowledge, he kept up the search for us even after we had lost hope. He was never high pressure and his advice ("If it's not a Hell Yes, then it's a Hell No") was quite helpful and will be applied to many of our upcoming life choices! If you are in the market for a floating home in Seattle, Danny is your guy. He has his finger on the pulse of the floating home market.
