"I can’t even begin to describe how incredible Dana is. There is simply no way I would’ve been able to purchase my house in Mountain View without her as my Realtor. Bay Area real estate is extremely competitive and challenging to navigate (especially as a first time homebuyer!), but Dana lead me through it all. She knows the market, has access to special listings, and has a variety of connections that can give you a much needed edge in your housing search.

"I can’t even begin to describe how incredible Dana is. There is simply no way I would’ve been able to purchase my house in Mountain View without her as my Realtor. Bay Area real estate is extremely competitive and challenging to navigate (especially as a first time homebuyer!), but Dana lead me through it all. She knows the market, has access to special listings, and has a variety of connections that can give you a much needed edge in your housing search. I could write an encyclopedia’s length review about how Dana will be the only Realtor I’ll ever work with, but here are just A FEW of the many reasons why I’d recommend working with Dana: 1. She’s so easy to talk to. Extremely professional and equally as personable. I always felt less stressed after any conversation we ever had. It feels like you’re working with a friend, not a salesperson. She’s truly passionate about helping people achieve their real estate goals. 2. Response time & availability. Have a question on a Sunday morning? Want to look at a house within hours notice? Text or call Dana and she’ll get right back to you. Seriously… it was usually just a matter of minutes. I don’t think the phone ever rang more than two times before she picked up. As other clients have expressed - you truly feel like a VIP when working with Dana and her team. 3. She has your best interest in mind. What more can you ask for when making the biggest purchase of your life? Dana grasps your exact wants/needs/budget and makes well-informed recommendations to help narrow down your search, all while exposing you to options that you didn’t even know you had. I genuinely trusted Dana with my house hunting and knew that she was working tirelessly to secure the best deal. Especially during the offer stage. From the first open house we walked through to the moment she handed me my keys, Dana was there for me every step of the way. Whether you’re buying or selling, she’ll do the same for you. Now get off the internet, get yourself out of that overpriced 1br/1ba apartment, and give Dana a call! What are you waiting for?!"
"Dana was incredible to work with! She is very knowledgeable, has extensive experience and great communication skills. She was always quick to respond to texts and emails and kept us informed while we were overseas. She worked around our schedule that was pretty tight because we were relocating. We couldn't have been happier! She sold our condo the day of the brokerage tour for more than asking price. We can't thank you enough for providing this valuable service. Thank you Dana!"
"I worked with Dana as we were evaluating homes. She was very insightful, responsive, and brought great ideas to our process. We didn't end up buying a home but would definitely use Dana next time we're in market. Highly recommend her!!"
