Dana, a Bay Area native, has been a top producing Broker Associate for over 10 years. She is a full-service Realtor who goes above and beyond for her clients to ensure a smooth process. Dana got into real estate after practicing law for 5 years at one of the 15 largest law firms in the world. Her experience as a lawyer honed her negotiation skills and understanding of law, proficiencies that set her apart from her colleagues.
Dana is passionate and knowledgeable about the local community and market and often has access to inside knowledge that gives her clients an edge. When listing properties for sale, Dana’s impeccable market preparation and pricing strategy often result in homes selling quickly and over the asking price. When helping buyers, Dana personally guides her clients through the entire process spending countless hours advising clients on specific homes, providing the inside scoop on neighborhoods, describing each of the area's schools in detail, and generally assisting clients to make the best decision as they navigate the largest purchase of their lives. When the time comes to make an offer, Dana’s goal is to put together a winning bid while minimizing the buyer’s risk. She listens to her clients, prioritizes their interests, and takes a collaborative, rather than a pushy, approach. In a business where reputation matters, Dana has strong relationships with local agents and vendors, not to mention many happy clients who allow her to work almost exclusively by referral. Referrals from satisfied clients are the best testament to Dana’s skill and success. Consistently recognized for her knowledge, responsiveness, enthusiasm, and attention to detail, Dana is committed to providing top notch service.
Dana graduated with honors from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. She received her Juris Doctor from the University of San Francisco School of Law, where she graduated in the top of her class.
After a brief stint in Walnut Creek and a decade in Orinda, Dana recently moved to Lafayette with her husband Keith and their two daughters, ages 6 and 2. Dana loves East Bay living and is actively involved with the local community. She is excited to share the knowledge she has acquired from living in three of the East Bay's premier cities with her clients.
We are ecstatic to have found – and actually won – our “homerun” ! We could not have done it without Dana! Words cannot describe how thankful we are to have had Dana as our Realtor, deal-marker, therapist and life line! We are so grateful to have worked with her and are so appreciative of how amazing, supportive and knowledge she was at every step along the way. We are thankful for her impressive patience, insight, hard work and ambition. We feel so lucky to have had her on our side. It was an absolute pleasure!

I have worked with five different realtors in my life so far and Dana BY FAR was the best! She restored my faith in realtors. She is incredibly knowledgeable, knows her market extremely well, offers great advice, is NOT a pushy/sales type, keeps it real, is excellent with follow-up, keeps you in the loop every step of the way and her legal background is a perfect bonus! Dana helped us sell our exactly the way WE wanted to not the way she or anyone else felt we should sell it, and it worked! She offered excellent ideas to sell our home quickly with minimal disruption. If I wasn't moving out of the area, Dana would be the one I would choose to help me buy my next home! You will not be disappointed when working with Dana, she is top notch!
