My greatest joy in life is doting on my family, though golf may be a close second. I am a passionate reader and a life-long learner. I have a Bachelor of Arts from the University of North Dakota and proudly served as an officer in the Oregon National Guard for 5 years. I began my career in communications at Cherriots, the public transportation district for Salem, Keizer, and the surrounding rural communities. I continue to use my intimate knowledge of our cities and bus system to help clients find neighborhoods that work for their specific transportation needs. Some areas lend themselves to a one-car or no-car lifestyle, while others almost require a car for every working adult. I also love discussing alternative forms of transportation for economic and environmental gain.
Having been born and raised in this community, I take great pride in my knowledge of Salem, Keizer, and the surrounding small towns. This knowledge allows me to help my clients find the neighborhood and home that best fits their specific situations. I am well versed in the issues that can arise in both old and new homes which allows me to help my clients make an informed decision about which is best for them. I advise and negotiate for my clients to give them the best deal possible on what is often the largest single investment of their lives, whether it is buying a new home or selling an old one. Above all, I listen to my clients to ensure that I am constantly working toward making their goals their reality.
We really appreciate Daniel’s service and responsiveness. He has gone out of his way to make us happy and answer our oddball questions. We found our perfect retirement home in Albany early on the second day of looking and will be moving next week. Thank you Daniel!
Daniel Gonzalez helped us with a remote purchase of an investment property in the early summer of 2020, and he was fantastic. He helped us navigate a crazy market and Facetime showings with ease. When he didn’t know the answer to a question, he simply said so and then did the research to find out. He was direct as to what he felt would be strong offers without pressuring us to spend more than we wanted. We would definitely work with Daniel again.
My partner and I had a wonderful experience working with Daniel Gonzalez! The housing market in summer 2021 was intense and very stressful for buyers, and yet Daniel created conditions where we felt supported and knew we had an expert guide. Daniel is in high demand by both home seekers and sellers–and for good reason! His communication is very swift and thorough, and his care for his clients is obvious. Daniel visited each property with us, consistently providing information about the home and its surrounding location. While I’ve observed some agents merely show up to house showings, Daniel actively reviewed different aspects of the properties with us and pointed out highlights and areas for concern. No matter how many times we emailed or texted with questions or requests for setting up showings, among many other topics, he always was good-natured, patient, and ready to advocate on our behalf. Thanks to Daniel, we were able to purchase our ideal home, despite a very hot market with many competing offers. His expertise and excellent communication made this outcome possible. We wouldn’t work with anyone else and highly recommend this outstanding agent!

My wife and I traditionally work with John, but during our most recent home purchase we worked with Daniel Gonzalez. He was a phenomenal agent for us who quickly understand precisely what we were looking for. He also understood what we didn’t want, and at no point showed us homes that failed to fit the description. We were buying from out of town, and it was great to have an agent who could do video tours with us. I had full confidence in this step of the process because Daniel understands the valuable components in a home, and can quickly point out problem areas. When it came to the buying process, Daniel represented us well and helped us get the home we wanted by offering solid advice on making a competitive offer. I’ve now worked with two agents at Tomson Burnham (John Kirk and Daniel) and can say with confidence that this is a great real estate firm. Definitely work with them.
