"Dana was so helpful throughout the buying process for me and my wife. She was great with offering her thoughtful advice while still making it clear that decisions were ours to make. Pleasure to work with and definitely recommend." - Molly

★★★★★
"Dana helped us buy our first home in the Lombard area. She picked out a house we hadn't even seen when browsing on-line and we ended up loving it and buying it. She walked us through the whole process, handled everything and was so quick to set up showings as soon as we asked her to. She worked with the seller's attorney and agent seamlessly and was on top of letting us know what we needed to submit and when. We will definitely be using her when we go to sell and buy again!"

★★★★★
"Dana is so amazing! She's everything that you're looking for in an agent. She does her due diligence in her research to find you the most ideal homes to tour. She listens to your feedback and is always quick to respond to any questions you might have. Dana has a natural eye for the business, as she was incredibly detailed as we were touring homes. She would point out things that a homeowner might not otherwise notice. Additionally, she has wonderful references for lenders and closing attorneys."

★★★★★
"I would highly recommend working with Dana when it comes to looking to buy a home. She is very knowledgeable about the entire process and provides honest unfiltered feedback to help you find the right home for you. Dana was always on time and accommodating to any viewings I scheduled with her and even on one occasion gave me a ride to my train afterwards so I wouldn't miss it. As a first time buyer I was fortunate to have worked with Dana who always had my best interest in mind and made the process completely seamless from start to finish."

"Thanks to Dana’s determination, hardwork, professionalism, and knowledge our house was sold and closed in 31 days!!! We had been with multiple realtors, on and off the market; and Dana came in and made it happen. Her honesty is extremely refreshing and definitely a rarity. Thank you for making this an easy and enjoyable process. We will never use anyone else!" - Lauren


About Dana
Dana might be slightly biased but she thinks Chicago is the most amazing city in the world. She was born and raised in Lombard and, after graduating from the University of Illinois, moved downtown to the Big City. Dana has lived in multiple Chicago neighborhoods from Lincoln Park to Ukrainian Village. She is constantly surprised by the architecture and charm this City and the surrounding suburbs have to offer.

Dana made the switch into real estate in 2015 after leaving behind her job in corporate America. She served as an executive assistant for 5+ years at a major Chicago law firm that specialized in landlord-tenant law. Prior to that, she worked as an internal wholesaler for an investment company. Both of these jobs provided her with a skillset that she has applied towards a career that she loves. Dana knows that an organized, expert negotiator requires exceptional interpersonal communication skills and know-how to relate with others. A real estate transaction can be an overly emotional time for some people, and she knows how to provide a listening ear, offer guidance and ease tension.

No two days are the same in this industry. From scheduling showings to attending training courses, reading over appraisal and inspection reports, exploring the various Chicago neighborhoods and suburbs, discussing market conditions with lenders, attending walkthroughs, negotiating with other agents, communicating with attorneys, creating marketing strategies, Dana gets to do it all! She feels blessed to work at Compass on the top-producing Olive Well team with some of the most wonderful clients, colleagues, and vendors.

When Dana is not at the office, you can find her strolling around town with her husband and her black labradoodle Harvey. She loves to cook and she finds relaxation in trying out a new recipe. She can also be found exploring the dynamic restaurant scene in her favorite, home sweet home, Chicago.
