"I just sold a house with Dana Rice and her team and I've never received such professional and over the top treatment in decades of experience buying and selling properties. Dana, Michelle and Melissa made everything go seamlessly. Dana went above and beyond the norm, helping us think through difficult problems and arranging creative solutions. She had wonderful people in her network to help us get the house ready for sale and was just extremely knowledgeable in strategies for getting the best price. Above all, she was reliably pleasant and her spirits never flagged in spite of complications. I would recommend Dana and her group at Compass to anyone. I'm onl. sad that I live out of state and will have to someday use someone else. I've been so spoiled by this experience." - Paula Gorlitz

★★★★★
"We thoroughly enjoyed working with Dana Rice and Kate Fralin from the Dana Rice Group. We started early (always a good idea, especially in this market), and appreciated their expertise, kindness, thoughtfulness, humor, and professionalism. Together with their entire team they guided us carefully through the process and helped us avoid pitfalls. At the same time, they listened carefully to our ideas and needs and concerns and addressed them adequately. They staged the house beautifully. In a market with rising mortgage rates and skittish buyers we received three good offers after only 4 days on the market. We really appreciated our experience and recommend them without hesitation. Clearly a 5-star service and team." - Gerald Klingbeil

★★★★★
"I wanted to thank Dana Rice and her entire team at Compass for an outstanding transaction! Because I was coinciding the sale of my current property with the acquisition of a new home, Dana recommended we jump-start the process with a “Private Exclusive Listing” while simultaneously preparing the house to go live on the MLS. This strategy worked perfectly and we had a full-price offer the night before we were to go public! Every step of the way, Dana’s professional team was there to make the process effortless on my end. The marketing photographs beautifully highlighted my home……. They even dispatched a window washer to meticulously wash every window, inside and out. The house never looked better! So thank you Dana, for making a highly stressful process easy and trouble-free! I can’t recommend the Dana Rice Group highly enough!" - Rick Werber

★★★★★
"My wife and I were incredibly happy with the performance of the team from the Dana Rice Group in the sale of our home in D.C.'s Wesley Heights. We worked principally with Kate Fralin and Dana Rice, but there was a supporting team that was all very helpful. What struck us most about working with them was how advanced they are in their strategic focus on how to sell a home, what good and careful advisers they were on our best approach, and how well they executed. Selling a home in 2022 is pretty different from how it was done when we last sold a home (2013), and the Dana Rice Group have more than kept up with the trends and techniques needed to sell today. We really could not have been better served by Kate, Dana and the team. They stayed on top of every detail, were responsive in the extreme, and at the end of the day, they delivered. We will recommend the Dana Rice Group to all of our friends." - John Buckley

★★★★★
"Dana and her team were great to work with. Straightforward, very responsive, and they made the process very easy for us, especially during a busy time for us. I highly recommend Dana and her team for any real estate needs!" - Lizzy Glazer

★★★★★
"Dana and her team are simply the best! I can’t recommend a better group in the DMV. We have worked with Dana through more than one transaction as both buyers and sellers. In each instance, my husband and I have been blown away her (and her team’s) dedication, responsiveness, professionalism, expertise, and follow-through. She genuinely cares about each of her clients and makes them feel heard and validated. From answering her phone at all hours to holding babies while their parents tour homes, Dana goes above and beyond—she acts as though she’s not above or below any aspect of the home-buying process. We found and bought our dream home because of Dana. I can’t give Dana Rice Group enough praise!" - Ashley Kollme

★★★★★
"We worked with Dana Rice and her associates to buy our first home in Maryland. In such a crazy market, Dana and her team provided top notch service and we were able to secure a home in the desired neighborhood after one offer! Dana listened to all our wants and was able to find a house that fit all our needs. We will definitely use Dana Rice Group in the future!" - Carolyn Balsbaugh

★★★★★
"Loved working with Dana to find a house in the neighborhood we were targeting. In a crazy competitive market, her advice and guidance landed us a house with relative ease (1 offer made, in comparison to many friends who have put many offers in on multiple places). Will definitely continue the relationship!" - Erik Balsbaugh

About Dana
YOUR IMAGE DESCRIPTION

Armed with a degree in journalism and a deep history of sales success with Fortune 500 companies, Dana Rice brings a storyteller’s touch and reporter’s insight into the marketing of homes.

Dana Rice Group's growth in the Washington, D.C. market has been swift and significant. In just five years, Dana and her group of top agents grew to #1 Small team in Maryland (RealTrends rankings in Wall Street Journal). With more than  $650M in lifetime sales since obtaining a license in 2013, Dana earned a spot in the top 1% of residential real estate globally. In 2016, Dana launched and carefully curated her award winning team by focusing on how to best serve clients - meaning DRG's five full-time agents, two junior agents, marketing director, operations director, and a dedicated stager / project manager exclusive to Dana Rice Group, are 100% dedicated to making the process a win-win for all.

In 2022, Dana Rice Group closed more than $158M in transactions, serving more than 118 buyers and sellers.

Initially a real estate investor, Dana bought, renovated, and sold a number of properties for her own account. With the decision to make real estate a full-time profession, Dana formed the Dana Rice Group, affiliated with Compass in Washington, D.C. where she is Executive Vice President, and has been named one of Washington top producers since the inception of her business.

Although Dana and her group represent buyers and sellers in the wider Metro Washington, D.C. area, her key focus is the neighborhoods of Northwest Washington, D.C., and surrounding areas of Montgomery County, Maryland. Her 25+ years of marketing, advertising, and negotiating skills, plus knowledge of the ins and outs of living in the DC Metro area, translates into helping buyers and sellers make the best, most informed decisions about real estate.

Dana has been named as one of Washingtonian's 'Top 100 ' in DC, Best of Washington, 2015-2023; Bethesda Magazine's "Best of" Top Teams; #1 team in year-over-year growth and Top Ten Producer Awards. She was named DC Metro Top Producer “Rising Star of the Year," one of RealTrends America’s Best. Dana feels the most illustrious (and irreverent) awards were bestowed peers - voted as "Ms. Compass" and "Agent You'd Want to List Your Own Home" in an annual awards ceremony. Dana is frequently featured in national and local media outlets regarding the latest trends and shifts in the local real estate market.

Dana holds a B.S. Journalism from the University of Maryland where she graduated with cum laude and was selected as the graduation commencement speaker. She lives in Bethesda with her husband and three sons, and prides herself on being the "go-to" resource for those who want to talk about real estate -- or other topics like renovations, Godzilla, rowing, or raising men.
