★★★★★
"Dana has been one of the top real estate agents that I have had the pleasure in working with over many years. She is incredibly responsiveness, knowledgeable of the market (beyond that of what a general market analysis provides), is true fiduciary to her clients, and can be a tiger in sheep's clothing if she needs to be.
Although Dana is highly successful and carries a large workload, you will never know she has any other client than you.
I cannot say enough good about my experience in working with Dana, you will not be disappointed!!

"Dana! What can I say?! This is our third time working with Dana during this home buying/ selling process. Two of the times have been out of state relocations. To say Dana is a gem is an understatement. When we initially worked with Dana in 2016, we were inexperienced first time home buyers. She held our hand every step of the way. This most recent experience with Dana was during COVID and she let us know up front the challenges that we would face in this market. However, in true Dana fashion, she went above and beyond even still, to ensure that we left not one stone unturned. So many times she talked us off of the ledge, and reassured us that our perfect was STILL out there. She has earned so much of our trust and respect. Dana truly loves what she does, and it shows in all of her passionate efforts. She has spent countless hours, calling, texting, late into the night and weekends to get things right and make it happen. She is more than just a realtor. I've sat on the phone and vented, cried, and she just simply listened and said "I am here'. She has made so much of herself readily available to our little family, and we are so grateful!"

★★★★★
"No one does it better than Dana.

We have purchased four homes and sold two homes with Dana. The thing about her level of service is that it comes from the heart. She treats each transaction like it's her personal purchase or sale. She approaches it from the perspective of her client, and everything she does is in the best interest of the people she represents. I cannot think of another realtor (or any professional, really) who would wake up at 6AM and drive three hours to the coast to ensure you got the right property for the right price.

Particularly in the 2021 real estate market, it's important your realtor is willing to go the extra mile to ensure you and your money are cared for well. She will forever be my realtor.

"Dana went above and beyond to make the buying process as easy as possible for my husband and I while searching for our first home. She is very knowledgeable about the area and helped us find exactly what we were looking for in our first home and at a good price too. She was very responsive throughout the entire process and has even stayed in touch after closing to check in and give recommendations on painters to brighten up our new home."

★★★★★
"This was our 2nd time working with Dana and she never disappoints. She takes time to understand what your needs are and delivers what you are looking for. Selling a house during the pandemic was stressful enough but we were also finishing an unfinished bonus room and a permit could have delayed the sale. Dana kept a positive attitude and continued to re-assure us that everything would work out and she was right! She also helped us through the build process on our new home and continued to educate us through the process. Whenever we had a question, she was always there with an answer. She never missed a meeting with us and the builder and asked all the right questions. We were living in a temporary apartment during the build which we weren’t fans of. Dana kept checking in on us to make sure we were doing okay. She goes the extra mile to ensure her clients are happy."
