About Dana
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 2021, Dana Rice Group is projected to close more than $200M in transactions, serving more than 140 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, 2015-2021; 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.

Client Testimonials

★★★★★
"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
