Buying or selling a home is an important decision and your selection of a real estate professional should offer you a strategic advantage. With over $500 million in sales, Dana’s volume places her in the top 1% of agents nationwide. Since 2007, she has been recognized by the Grubb Company as one of the top 4 Agents company-wide and was the highest individual producer in 2017. She has an in-depth knowledge of the Oakland, Berkeley and Piedmont real estate market that only comes from being an active member of the community for over four decades. Consistently recognized by her clients as providing superior service with a five star rating on Yelp and Zillow, Dana was voted “Favorite East Bay Realtor” in J. Magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards in 2017. She treats every transaction as if it were her own with expert negotiating skills and comprehensive care that lasts well beyond the sale.
It is no accident that Dana’s sales volume is among the highest in the company year after year. In large part, it comes down to her philosophy: high touch with high tech. Dana finds that selling high value/unique assets is largely a people business because every transaction is unique. She believes that her clients deserve to be treated with her personal attention on every matter that is important to them.
From a marketing perspective, Dana is all about the web. With over 90% of home buyers now starting their process online, Dana believes that a property’s web-based presentation may be the only opportunity to impress a potential buyer and build competitive interest. It’s hard to argue with her results; her average listing last year sold in 13 days at 30% over the list price.
Beyond her philosophy, Dana truly cares about her client’s success. Her outstanding follow-through, meticulous attention to detail, excellent negotiating and communication skills enable her to successfully represent her clients in today’s increasingly competitive residential real estate marketplace.
