"Absolutely LOVE Dana! She was unbelievably helpful and I made a new friend that I will for sure stay in touch with! Dana was very prompt with answering any emails, phone calls or questions that I had. She also understood exactly what we wanted, so we were able to see multiple apartments that were amazing and were beyond our expectations, which made the process even more exciting for my roommate and I. Anyone in need of help finding a place definitely needs Dana in their life." - Rachele
"Dana is wonderful to work with!! Reliable, so personable, intelligent and everything u could ask for in a real estate agent!!" - Kathy
"Dana helped us through our first home purchase and was extremely knowledgeable, patient and supportive. The amount of things to learn and be aware of was daunting, but Dana was constantly available to break things down and explain us through the process. From the initial home search to navigating mortgage options to helping us through the inspection and final closing, Dana seemed to always go above and beyond and even made what should have often been stressful situations into enjoyable ones. Thanks Dana!"
"We had the daunting task of moving from NYC to Chicago with only a day in town to look at apartments. Dana went the extra mile to help us navigate this challenge and find the perfect apartment. She went so far as to create personalized profiles of each building with key features such as distances from work, metro, and grocery, amenities, discounts, etc... We moved in to our apartment a month ago and couldn't be happier, which is probably the most telling experience of all!"
"Dana was EXTREMELY helpful, patient, and kind throughout the entire process of searching, viewing, and finding an apartment in Chicago and remains to be so even after we have signed our lease. I was living 4 hours away from the city when we began our initial search with Dana and she made the process incredibly easy and enjoyable by updating us daily on available properties that fit our requirements. She organized all of our feedback into an accessible spread sheet and set up a day of showings based on the listings we liked the most. On the day of the showing Dana drove us from each apartment, provided us with folders containing information on each property, helped us rate each apartment after viewing them, and provided us with any information we needed to know about each property and the area around it. If Dana did not know an exact answer, she sought out answers immediately and provided us with answers to our questions. Dana goes above and beyond from start to finish, and even after you sign a lease, to make the process easy for her clients. Not only is Dana extremely professional, but she makes a rather stressful process into an enjoyable and exciting experience."
Originally hailing from Westchester County, NY, Dana moved to Chicago in 2014 when her husband was temporarily relocated for work. What was originally supposed to be a one-year stint, fortunately, turned into an indefinite stay as they fell in love with the city's charm, unique neighborhoods, and people. To get better acquainted with the city, they moved between the neighborhoods of Lakeview, Lincoln Park, Fulton Market, and West Town, where they live today.
Prior to real estate, Dana worked as the executive assistant to one of the most successful, fastest-moving CEOs in Chicago. The same energy, tenacity, and diligence that enabled her to be successful as an executive assistant has paid dividends in her new life as a real estate agent. She also has a background in fine art and luxury furniture from working with wholesalers and auction houses in New York.
Dana is a graduate of Skidmore College where she focused on business management and art. She was especially passionate about interior architecture studies in school and has continued her education in architecture, art, and design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She couldn't be happier to be working in a field where she can apply her unique set of skills and New York drive to helping others find their dream homes in the city she now calls home.
