As a local native to Austin, Dana has enjoyed watching Austin transform into the vibrant city that it has become today. After graduating a year early from James Bowie High School, she realized that she wanted to take her life in a more creative direction and enrolled into Cosmetology school. During her 5 years as a Stylist, Dana learned the importance of cultivating lifetime relationships. Having come from an intense internship with a renowned Paul Mitchell stylist, it’s been ingrained into her to always be able to effectively manage time, to always find the solution to any questions or concerns, and most importantly to communicate quickly and in detail. The time spent in that industry taught her to always believe in her tenacious spirit, while never being afraid to speak someone's truth. Dana promises to get to the core of your “why” and to do her best to help you move in that direction.
Dana also grew up in and around the real estate industry, attending appointments, showings, and closings since childhood. Upon entry into the industry, Dana underwent an intensive, hands-on internship with her mother, her mentor and now partner, Linda Takenaka, a 21-year Real Estate veteran. Since then Dana has been able to showcase her personality, her approach to business and her relationship skills with all her clients. Dana is committed to making it her mission to ensure all her clients are able to not only understand but to enjoy every step of the real estate process and their transaction. Dana’s goal is to make sure her clients always get the communication and information they require every step along the way!
