About Dan Izzo

I am a Realtor with Jim Shaffer and Associates. I have over 15 years of real estate experience as a real estate attorney and realtor. My practice is built on compassion, knowledge and dedication.

My role is not to sell properties - but rather to advocate strongly for my clients. My goal is to help my clients make the best decision for them and their family. Buying or selling a home is a complex, sophisticated and deeply personal endeavor. Working with me, you will have the personal attention traditionally associated with the client-agent relationship improved by the professionalism and consistency of a top real estate team.

In the past, I have worked with the Dan Gilbert Family of Companies in many capacities: Director of Quality Assurance at Xenith, the manufacturer of one of the top safety rated football helmets; Director of Product Development at Fathead, the REAL BIG brand in officially licensed, life-size, hi-def wall graphics of professional athletes, animated super heroes and entertainment figures; and Training and Launch Chief at Bizdom, an academy for entrepreneurs which I helped launch in the City of Detroit.

I also owned and operated Improv Inferno, an improv comedy club in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We had an excellent run of two years, once being voted the Best Local Comedy Troupe by Real Detroit. I created the Michigan Improv and Laugh Festival which was attended by over 500 people in five days.

Prior to moving to Michigan, I ran my own law practice specializing in residential real estate. I also was an instructor at Second City in Chicago and Columbia College in Chicago. I taught improv, which is really all about teaching people to trust themselves and make strong choices.

I graduated with honors from Notre Dame with a degree in Psychology, and with highest honors from Loyola Law School in Chicago.

I love creating and being part of an environment where people have the opportunity to maximize their potential.
