"Dana was our Realtor for our house rental. Thanks to her professionalism, prompt organization and great attitude, the house was rented within a week -- and for more than our original asking price. Dana was kind enough to extended her help by checking in with us and our tenant on a regular basis. We feel grateful and can't thank Dana enough for all her help.

"Dana Cataldi handled our sale with grace and energy. It was done before we knew it and the sale was easier than we could have possibly imagined." - A | Westwood
"As we tell our house-buying story to our friends and family, we always start with the luck that we had in meeting Dana Cataldi at another open house. We had been visiting open houses for over a year in a very specific area, but it wasn’t until meeting Dana that the process began. Dana is exactly what one needs in a real estate agent: knowledgeable, patient and connected!" - F & I | Beverly Center
"We began working with Dana earlier this year in a real estate market on the Westside that can only be described as daunting for a homebuyer. She listened to what we needed and was candid with her advice, persistent in our search, creative and proactive in her approach, and a passionate advocate throughout the process.

"Dana came highly recommended to me by a friend, and we couldn’t have been happier with her. As first-time homebuyers, we had a very specific set of requirements for our family of four. She worked tirelessly to ensure that we saw all the relevant properties on the market, often before they hit the public listings, and was exceedingly patient.
