About Dan

I come from a 20 year career as a craftsman where I restored and refinished wooden boats on Lake Champlain before moving into the Green Mountains and offering my skills to homeowners. Fast forward to today, where I help people in a different way; albeit with fewer splinters and cleaner hair. 

My work in real estate starts with understanding my clients. My goal is to be a resource, not a salesman; to use my expertise to help you make the right decisions, so you can achieve goals.

My home office is in Wolfeboro, NH; America’s oldest summer resort town. When I am not working, you will find me enjoying one of my lifelong hobbies: Playing my guitar, an evening card game with my family or fishing from my canoe along NH’s thousands of miles of shoreline. What I love most about this part of NH is the abundant outdoor recreational activities that offer such a high quality of life.  

If you would like more information about how I can help you make your next move, send an email or give a call.  

Thank you, 

Dan Batten, your Lakes and Mountains Agent

In October 2023, my husband and I casually began our search for our retirement residence in Laconia NH. As our luck would have it, Dan Batten of Berkshire Hathaway, Verani R.E. reached out to us by phone. We were instantly impressed that it was not the cookie cutter text or email that we started receiving from other agents, but a phone call enabling us to have an actual conversation. Dan’s job was not easy, we were a 4 hour commute to our desired area, so not just a jump in the car to look at a property. Dan’s commitment to our search never waivered. In addition to arranging tours for listed properties, he proactively sent recruitment letters to owners in our target areas to assess their willingness to sell their property. Dan knew we were in no hurry for a transaction to take place and never pressured us to tour or purchase a property. On July 1st, we closed on a condominium in a complex that we had been watching since those early days in October. Over the 8 months it took us to find our final destination, Dan prepared offers on 3 other properties. His attention to detail in drafting our offer to make it as competitive as possible based on our situation and the competitive market was over and above any other agent I have dealt with during the buying and selling of 6 properties over the years. Our transaction on the condominium was complicated. Dan helped us connect with a lender, insurance provider, attorney and title agency to handle the details and answer our questions. Dan was meticulous in his review of documents and caught an issue that we had definitely missed/misinterpreted in our review. While this is a summary, I will conclude by saying that we could not have been better represented by another agent. Dan always looked out for our best interests and I am confident in saying he does/would do the same for any client.

We started looking at buying a home in the Laconia, N.H. area in October 2023. Living in Connecticut, it was a long distance project. I saw a property that looked interesting and requested more information. Within an hour or so, I got a call from Dan Batten, who would become our realtor as we began our search. We arranged to drive up and look at the property. It was not what we wanted but continued to look. Dan kept us updated on new properties that came on the market. Over the next 7 months, we came up 4-5 times. Dan was with us as we made offers on three properties, none of which were accepted. Finally, we found the perfect Condo and made an offer. It was accepted. During the next few weeks, when our finance company had a problem with a sales agreement, Dan found us another finance company. He recommended a few inspection companies. As the process continues, Dan recommended a few lawyers and we found a good one. As the move towards closing progressed, Dan was on top of every detail. We receive frequent updates and encouragement as we hit a few snags. Dan assured us that the sale would happen. We finally closed on our condo. Dan was with us every step of the way. He went over and above anything that we have ever experienced with realtors in the past. I would completely recommend Dan Batten to anyone who is looking to buy in the Laconia area. He will not disappoint.

Working with Dan was an absolute pleasure. I needed to sell a parcel of land asap on behalf of an aging relative. I called Dan randomly from a search online. I knew during the first phone call I found my realtor due to his professional, calm and kind demeanor along of course with excellent market knowledge of the area. Since we were acting with a power of attorney, Dan took great care in making sure I had the legal authority to sell the property. While this took a little bit of extra time, I appreciated his diligence in protecting all parties involved. From my first phone call to closing, I found Dan to be precise, detailed oriented methodical and deliberate. Dan was very proactive in keeping me apprised of the progress. I would get weekly updates from him. I had absolutely zero stress or ambiguity during this transaction. Everything Dan said he would do, he did. Everything that he said would happen, happened how and when he said it would. His salesmanship and demeanor gave me 100% confidence that he would sell this property at my asking price or close and he did not disappoint. I would recommend Dan without any hesitation whatsoever.

My husband and I are blown away with Dan's knowledge, professionalisms, and kindness.Dan was recommend to us by a family member, as we were having a very difficult time selling our piece of land with our previous agent. We were convinced that it wouldn't sell, and we were starting to feel very discouraged. After over a year of no offers with our previous agent, we signed on with dan, and we immediately saw a HUGE difference! We received MULTIPLE OFFERS, and we ended up selling our land OVER ASKING PRICE! Dan looked out for us, and had our best interest at heart. He is your agent, and your friend. We would work him again, and 100% RECOMMEND WORKING WITH DAN to anyone we know! Thank you so much Dan. We will always be thankful we found you. Do yourself a favor, and sign on with him. YOU WON'T BE SORRY!

Dan was a godsend. We were burnt out on looking at barely tolerable options. Within 2 weeks Dan got us in to our dream cabin in the woods. He helped us score a contract within 24 hours and got us in within 2 weeks. What a relief! You won’t regret working with him, he’s straightforward, honest and genuine, which frankly was refreshing and built trust. He really listened to what we wanted, which was a needle in a haystack. He didn’t balk, and got the job done in record time. We were so relieved and are in awe of the deal he got us.
