Understanding the critical value of communication in high stakes situations, she is an excellent listener, while also being quick to adapt to changing market conditions and technology.
Dana’s business thrives on personal relationships: you and your home are not treated like “transactions”. Every house has been someone’s home, and respect for that shines through in all aspects of her professional systems for sellers and buyers alike. She smooths out the emotional roller coaster that can accompany buying and selling a home.

Dana has the proven systems and marketing skills to get your home sold in a smooth and profitable transaction. She goes to the ends of the earth to sell your home with marketing plan that encompasses new technologies and savvy sales techniques. She will never puff the suggested list price of your home to get the listing but will help you chose a smart “power price” to generate maximum enthusiasm from buyers for the purchase of your home. She is renowned for her orchestration in putting homes on the market and getting them sold quickly for top dollar, with less days on market and higher industry averages.
With a unique understanding of international cultural nuances, one of her specialties is working with international clients, Embassy and World Bank officials, and relocations. Taking care of the special needs of her international and French-speaking clients has made her a dedicated “problem solver” for all her clients.
A native of Manhattan, Dana has made her home, worked and raised a family in the Metro Washington DC area since 1982. With two children out of the nest, during her spare time Dana can be found at the barn riding her horse, serving on the Board of Directors of Days End Farm Horse Rescue (2,300 horses rescued and counting!), or sailing on the bay with her husband.
What clients say about Dana:
Choosing Dana was easy. It was like night and day. I immediately recognized that she was not only highly experienced and knowledgeable, but also realistic, comfortably decisive, and strategically minded in her approach to our unique needs and circumstances. She was always accessible, flexible and open minded. She was quick to accommodate our needs and changing timelines. She always told me what I needed to hear and the result was an expedited sale of our home for top dollar.” Michael N., Bethesda home sold
