Daniel Cezimbra


Silver Award Winner 2022

Owning your own home — and choosing to sell it when you wish — is the bedrock of the American dream, and nobody knows that better than Dan. “My parents brought me to this country when I was 5-years old,” he explains. “They left Brazil seeking the American dream.”

Once settled stateside, Dan’s father established himself in the autobody industry. “He thought that would be my dream, too, but I went toward real estate.” And for as long as he can remember, real estate has been his passion. “Homes… their style, their characteristics, their history… it’s always fascinated me,” says Dan. Getting his feet wet in the industry, he flipped homes for a time, before making a name for himself in 2012 as a real estate agent; he’s now fully licensed in both New York and Connecticut.

Dan grew up in rental properties, and “the ideal of home ownership is something that stuck with me throughout my life.” It’s no wonder, therefore, that Dan absolutely thrives on getting his clients to their version of “dream home” no matter how they describe it and at whatever stage they’re in, from the desire for a private residence or condo to the coup of owning an investment property. “I love their happy faces when they close on the deal.” He knows and understands exactly how they feel, as a proud and happy Eastchester homeowner; not to mention a happy husband and proud father of three.

Dan’s clients walk away happy because he’s especially skilled at keeping calm and guiding them through the “turbulence,” as he calls it. “It can be a war out there in this industry.” To that end, he is a highly responsive ally, and he never forgets a client. “The relationship continues after the closing is complete.”

Along with his day-to-day real estate transactions, Dan is also a landlord of multiple properties, further cementing his business and financial acumen in the field, and giving him that many more opportunities to fulfill his own dream of making people happy with the vision of home sweet home.

Client Testimonials

"Dan was our real estate agent when we were looking for a house in Lower Westchester (Bronxville, Tuckahoe, Eastchester, Scarsdale, Larchmont). We decided to move from Manhattan to the suburbs in spring 2020. My wife and I were first-time home buyers, so we had a lot of questions, no experience, and probably were paying attention to wrong things initially. He was very patient, supportive, was constantly answering all our questions throughout the process, and actually educated us on what to pay attention to. Dan was always available for us. He did an excellent job with time management, arranging houses in a row, so we could have a look at 3-4 houses per day on a weekend. Dan paid attention to our wishes and what was important to us in a home. And Dan found our dream home despite hot season market. Without Dan this wouldn't happen, so I'm really glad I worked with him."

-Tuckahoe, NY

“Dan is a professional and knowledgeable agent. He is extremely responsive and helps in any way possible. It was a pleasure to work with him because he really listened to what we wanted. We purchased our co-op with him and now I am referring him to my friends and family.”

-Janet - White Plains, NY

“It has been a pleasure working with Dan. He stay dedicated to helping me purchase my first home. We looked at listings multiple days per week for almost a year due to me finding my perfect home. Would recommend friendly, knowledgeable, and committed!”

-Denise - White Plains, NY

“We definitely made the right choice in choosing Daniel as our agent. He made the first time home buying experience an easy one for our family and we couldn't be happier with our new home. Anytime we had questions or concerns, day or night, he was there for us. He moved quickly on all requests and never kept us waiting. The home buying experience, especially in this market and during COVID can be a challenge to say the least but we're thankful to have had Daniel to help guide us through it.”

-Gerardo - White Plains, NY

I highly recommend Daniel Cezimbra!! He went above and beyond throughout the process and was always available. I had a few issues after I moved into my home and Daniel went out of his way to help me (even though it wasn't his job).

-M. Vega - Yonkers, NY

Dan helped us navigate a difficult seller’s market earlier this year when we purchased our home in Colonial Heights. He was understanding of our concerns and very easy to work with. Unlike many brokers who put their own interests before the clients, Dan went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with our decision. I would recommend Dan to anyone looking to purchase a property in Westchester County.

-J. Ruizios - Yonkers, NY

Daniel help me get my current condo. I was a first-time home buyer. Daniel was very patient, professional and friendly. He shared lots of information with me, and made the whole process smooth. When the closing was approaching, Daniel help me communicate with the condo management team and speed thing up a lot. When I shopped around, I did talk to quite a few agents from New Jersey to Westchester county. Daniel did the best job.

-Jinrongl - White Plains, NY

When we first met Dan, the first thing we noticed was that huge smile he greeted us with! He helped us purchase our first home as a married couple. We went house hunting in the burning heat of summer, as well as the cold rain of the fall. Throughout the entire process he was always there for us - even during times when we lost faith and thought we would never find our home. Dan finally found us the perfect place and we couldn’t be happier. We enjoyed working with him so much that we referred him to my mother and he did the same thing for her! Dan is not just our real estate agent – he is family!

-Fenton - Hartsdale, NY

Dan is the best real estate representation you can get. He is passionate about what he does, he is driven, persistent, responsive, supportive, has market expertise and above all, Dan will act on your best interest. He is dependable and works with high integrity. When I temporarily gave up the idea of seeking a new home when I found out that the property that I really liked was under contract, Dan persevered and found me another unit in the same condo with a better price at a prime location in White Plains. Buying a home is a big big decision, particularly if you're doing this on your own. As you make big decisions in life, you want the right people by your side. This can mean the difference between success and failure. The wrong home can bring you a lot of problems down the road. This was my first home purchase and Dan was with me in every step of the process, guiding me, explaining things to me, clarifying my questions. He is honest. If he thinks that a property is not a good deal, he will tell you. Dan made this process as painless as possible. He will get the job done for you in the best way. It would be a pleasure to continue to work with Dan and I highly recommend him. We bought the White Plains house through the best broker who we felt very lucky having him in July, 2017. I randomly picked a real estate sales person of him from the internet. My wife and I are completely happy and satisfy with his service, expertise and advice. He is an excellent, knowledgeable, honest and experience professional in the White Plains and the whole Westchester area. We smoothly downsized our property from Armonk to White Plains by his prominent efforts. Thanks him very much.

-White Plains, NY

Easy to work with. Excellent job done on both buying my apartment and renting out afterwards. He was responsive on all communications. He showed up all appointments on time. I will work with him for sure in the future.

-B. Alyanak - New Rochelle, NY

I was lucky enough to be one of Dan's clients. I had spent several months looking for a home and worked with a handful of other realtors but none of which stood up to Dan's professionalism and dedication to his clients. Dan made every effort to understand our needs in a new home, always responded to questions in a timely and patient manner and advocated for us to find the best home for our family. I knew I could always count on him for whatever I needed in the home buying process. Dan also referred us to top notch lenders and attorneys.....all of whom made the first time home buying process less stressful. I would highly recommend working with Dan.

-A.J. - Yonkers, NY

I have worked with other agents before, but the service I received for Daniel on this purchase is second to none. He was delightful, honest and a skill negotiator on my behalf. Daniel will do the property search in the day and even sometimes at night. He negotiated on my behalf and make sure the purchasing contract was accurate and in my favor. He recommended the best local Lawyers, Title Company, Home Inspector and repairmen, what can I say, full service. I often felt like I was her only client, because of the personal and hands-on service she provides, but I was so wrong, He has a full plate. I am a very stratified customer and would most definitely recommend her as a great and competent agent.

-Oraldenton - Yonkers, NY

My boyfriend and I just purchased a co-op in White Plains, NY and as first-time home buyers, Dan helped guide us through the entire process. Right after contacting him for the first time, he recommended a mortgage company to get a pre-approval letter to start off the process, which worked out great. We were living in Boston when we were in the search process for a co-op and Dan was very responsive and accommodating with scheduling tours of the units we wanted to see considering our difficult schedules. Once we found a place and our offer was accepted, he explained the next steps in the process. When we were in the process of getting our mortgage approved, Dan went out of his way one weekend to show my mom and sister the unit when I asked last minute since we were in the area. Overall, Dan made the experience as stress-free as it could be and was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend!

-White Plains, NY

Awesome realtor! Gave us many options to choose from. Very knowledgeable of the process from beginning to end. Pointed out various characteristics to look out for and be weary of. Also had reliable contacts regarding lawyers and mortgage companies. We never felt pressured or rushed. We would recommend him again and again!

-Rgrussell - Yonkers, NY

We worked with Dan Cezimbra on the Gino Bello team. He was terrific. Very responsive, cognizant of our needs, and hard-working. We felt that he had our best interest at heart all the time and presented a zero-pressure environment for us to choose and bid on our house. Would definitely recommend Dan to any prospective home buyer in the Westchester area.
