Dana was born into the world of homes. Her grandfather and his twin brother started 'Reinke and Sons’ Construction in South Bend, Indiana which became a residential and commercial building success. Her father developed his skills in masonry, which paid for his degree in Architecture at the University of Cincinnati. Her father's brother became a successful real estate agent in South Bend. Her mother was also bit by the real estate bug and sold real estate in Loveland, Colorado in the 1980s.
Without a doubt, Dana's family had a tremendous influence on her desire to become a Realtor back in 1996. Her career in real estate began in Boulder, Colorado, where she was later recruited by a top real estate brokerage to work predominantly as a Buyer’s Agent and Relocation Specialist.
Dana enjoys the process of assisting individuals, couples, and families with one of the most significant purchases and life-changing events in their lives. She also enjoys working with investors and developers to find viable properties to renovate in the DC metro area. Dana's desire is to make the home buying and selling experience as enjoyable and stress-free as possible for her clients.
Dana is pleased to be settled on the East Coast in Alexandria, Virginia. She welcomes the opportunity to work with buyers, sellers, and investors/developers with their real estate needs in the Washington DC and Northern Virginia region.
★★★★★"Dana is an amazing real estate agent. Since my husband and I had very different expectations when it came to purchasing a home, our search was very frustrating. Dana showed us over 50 + homes and never once did she rush us or push us into a contract. Dana remained extremely patient, professional and always greeted us with a smile. Dana’s reassuring demeanor and positive attitude made it comforting for us to continue the search of our dream home.
Once we found our dream home, Dana continues to demonstrate her knowledge of the industry by providing us the comparative market analysis of the area and giving us advice on the true property value. Instead of presenting an immediate offer, she negotiated and renegotiated going above and beyond to get us the best deal which resulted in a sold price $27,500 under list. We are forever grateful! Thank you, Dana."
★★★★★"Dana is the best! She works tirelessly to find you the right home. She does her homework and makes sure you walk into your purchase or sale with eyes wide open. She is extremely flexible and generous with her time. I wouldn't consider using another agent with Dana in the business."
★★★★★"I recently bought a house in Fairfax County, with Dana as my realtor.
Having bought and sold several houses in North VA over the years, I had worked with other real estate agents, so this was not a new experience for me. I thought I was accustomed to the process and knew what to expect. However, Dana far exceeded all expectations and surpassed any previous realtor experience of mine.
I was relocating back from overseas and it quickly became evident that Dana's expertise as a Military Relocation Specialist would be particularly invaluable. She kept me updated and fed with local listings long before I arrived back here. She was also extremely accommodating to my unique travel situation, timing, preferred area, and even some special housing needs related to my beloved dog.
Upon meeting her, Dana was exceptionally professional, friendly, and could not have been more flexible with her schedule. She was available at any time to look at houses, make adjustments to our search, and ultimately helped me find the house I needed in relatively little time at the price I wanted. Lastly, she helped me navigate through many of the particular features regarding Vet Affairs (VA) loans.
Thanks to Dana, I had the best house hunting experience of my life and plan to use her services again. I can only say positive things about her and would never hesitate to recommend her. At closing, Dana even finalized the experience by giving my dog a new bone and bed -- the perfect additions to our new house!"
