Dan Ness is a lifelong resident of Otter Tail County and has enjoyed being a successful real estate agent with Century 21 Vista, Inc. since 2017. Upon graduating from Ashby High School, Dan began pursuing a career in construction. He was owner/operator of Ness Backhoe Service for over 20 years. Throughout his years in construction, Dan gained extensive knowledge dealing with all local and state rules and regulations including septic and well issues and lakeshore ordinances throughout Douglas, Grant and Otter Tail counties.
Dan enjoys working in real estate because it allows him the opportunity to continue working with the land, housing and building while establishing relationships with the people he works for. He listens to his client’s requests, provides them with good customer service and believes in providing prompt, honest service. The relationships Dan has built over the years as a business owner, along with knowledge of the lakes area, are great attributes to his success.
Dan and his wife, Andrea, live in rural Ashby and have three grown children.
"Dan is very good at what he does. His personality makes him a very good salesman. I would recommend Dan to family and friends." - Julie Brevig, Dalton
"We already knew Dan Ness from dealings we had with him in his other business prior to his entering the real estate sales field. We knew him to be personable and honest in those dealings and thought he would bring those attributes to the sale of our property. When we told our neighbors who we had hired to sell our place, they all said that we had made a good choice, as it turned out, we had. Dan worked hard and smart to sell our place for us. He was available by phone and in person any time we needed him. Working with Dan Ness was an altogether pleasant and rewarding experience! We would recommend using Dan Ness as a Realtor to anyone else in the area who may be thinking of buying or selling." - Chelsy Moe
"While the typical factors of selecting a real estate agent were all important, we selected Dan Ness mostly because of the person he is. For us, the main quality we look for is working with someone we can trust and who we know will do their job in a fair and honest way. Selling a home is not a stress free situation but Dan, without a doubt, is certainly the agent you can count on to make it a positive experience and to do the job right." -Dustin & Renae Steenblock, Hoffman
"Was told Century 21 was the way to go! Dan Ness is the best realtor we have ever worked with. He is genuine, caring and helped us remain calm and positive through the process.
