Licensed in Virginia, DC and Maryland, Dana represents buyers throughout the DC metropolitan area. She has lived in all three areas as well. She is a graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI) and has her brokers license.
In her former life, Dana was the National Director of Marketing and New Media for a DC consulting firm and represented numerous commercial and government clients.

"We returned to the DC area in 2001 determined to find a high-end “fixer-upper” in a highly desirable neighborhood. We quickly wore out two real estate agents who could not keep up with our pace of property evaluation. Then, we met Dana and were off and running. We had trouble keeping up with her! After numerous offers and counter-offers, we found the perfect house for us. With homes selling in bidding wars for above asking price, we were able to negotiate a price that was $94,000 below the original asking price, almost a 20% reduction. If you need a tenacious buyer’s agent, Dana is the one who’ll see you through to a successful conclusion."

"I retained Dana's services in 2002 to buy my first home (an apartment in Kalorama) and again, four years later, to buy my first townhouse. I sought Dana's services again because she was a joy to work with: thorough, honest, and very savvy strategically. She provided exhaustive research for and honest assessment of each property I expressed interest in. Her guidance throughout the stressful process gave me confidence that I had a strong game plan. Once we identified a property we liked, her skills as a negotiator became apparent and she really shined during the closing of our house. I recommend Dana to anyone who wants peace of mind in the home buying process!"

"My husband and I were anxious entering into a competitive and volatile real estate market. We were looking for a home in a safe, welcoming neighborhood where we could start a family and not go bankrupt paying the mortgage. Right from the start, Dana listened carefully to what we wanted and asked insightful questions to determine exactly what we were looking for. When my husband and I toured a home, she kept us on track by thoroughly and objectively pointing out the pros and cons of the property. Dana not only found us a perfect home in our dream neighborhood, but skillfully negotiated the price and conditions of sale so well that since then, seller's agents have ruefully commented on the "great deal" we got! If you want someone thoroughly committed to helping you find a home, use a buyer's agent. If you want a buyer's agent with experience, knowledge, insight, and determination, call Dana!"

"When my husband and I decided to buy our first home, we had no idea where to look or what the process entailed. We feel very fortunate that friends recommended Dana to us. I don’t even think I knew there was such a thing as a buyer’s agent at the time. Dana immediately put us at ease. She listened to what we wanted in a home, suggested communities we had not even considered (with her being licensed in Virginia, Maryland and DC, our range was large), and always looked at the houses we visited with an eye for our expressed interests and needs. In fact, when we had stars in our eyes over a house, she was the one who pointed out the number of stairs one would have to walk up with two babies and groceries in tow, the positioning of a house on the block, or the extent to which we would need to undertake improvements that we most certainly did not have time to make on our own. In other words, she never pressured us to enter into a contract, but really looked out for our best interests. For example, when the inspection a house we won the contract on revealed some strong negatives, it was Dana who encouraged us to walk away and not settle for something that was not exactly what we wanted. In the end, we found our dream home in a family friendly neighborhood and have not regretted it a single day. We always have our eyes open for other houses in our neighborhood for when our children have outgrown our current home, and when that day comes, we know who to call first…. Dana!"
