grew up in a family that emigrated to the United States when Danny was three years old. In Danny's household, there were only three types of people in the world - Lawyers, Doctors and everyone else. As a result, Danny ended up going to law school at Pepperdine University, where he graduated with a JD / MBA, and subsequently practiced real estate law for three years. To his family, this may have been the definition of "success", but Danny felt unfulfilled and could not see himself working at a law firm for his entire career. He knew there should be more to life than working in an office 80 hours a week.
While he was practicing law, Danny had the opportunity to help several clients purchase and sell residential real estate and he immediately discovered that he had a passion for the industry. Danny immediately set out on his own and started a real estate brokerage with his wife, Elena.
