About Dana
Armed with a degree in journalism and a deep history of sales success at 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 four years, Dana and her group of top agents have sold more than $325M placing them in the top 1% of residential real estate agents globally. Dana’s team of four full-time agents, a marketing coordinator, operations director, communications manager, and a dedicated stager exclusive to Dana Rice Group, are highly regarded in the DC/MD/VA market.

In 2019, Dana Rice Group closed more than $130M in transactions, serving 130 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 Senior Vice President and has been named one of Washingtonian’s Best Agents and 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 Washingtonian's 'Top 100 Agents' in DC, Best of Washington, 2015-2019; Bethesda Magazine's "Best of" Top Teams; Compass #1 team in year-over-year growth and Compass 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 by Compass peers in 2019: "Ms. Compass" and "Agent You'd Want to List Your Own Home." 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 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.

★★★★★
"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 by 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
