Dana Carter Cataldi
Named by the Wall Street Journal and Real Trends as one of the Top 250 Real Estate Agents for 10 consecutive years, Dana Carter Cataldi is a recognized influencer and industry expert. Since 2007, Dana has been building her business on repeat referrals, stellar reputation, glowing client testimonials and her bold and dedicated leadership. Although Dana has been featured by Super Agents, Top Agent Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine and Angelo Magazine, she is much less about the accolades and much more about relationships and client care.
Inspired by the opportunity to share the joys of home, Dana transforms client partnerships into lasting friendships through her steadfast commitment and genuine devotion to her client’s goals. Her collaborative, “meeting-of-the-minds” approach ensures a smooth real estate transaction from start to finish and it’s safe to say that Dana’s candid, driven and loyal nature follows her wherever she goes.
Having lived and worked on both coasts and traveled across the U.S., Dana has a deep appreciation for diverse perspectives and values, as well as the shared connection people experience through life's many transitions. Formerly in marketing and communications at a leading radio production company, Dana began honing her communication skills and collaborative style while managing radio personalities like Howard Stern and working on such events as the Grammy and CMA Awards. Those experiences gave Dana the ability to help her clients successfully navigate the challenges that come up in the competitive Los Angeles real estate industry. She’s a powerhouse advocate who offers buyers and sellers the winning combination of expertise, transparency, and compassion.
Aside from real estate, Dana is passionate about her community and has supported Beauty Bus, the UCLA Rape Treatment Center, One Voice, Aviva, Good+ Foundation, and LA Family Housing, to name a few. When she’s not giving back to the community or with clients, Dana enjoys entertaining and laughing with her husband, Owen, their six children, and their friends in their 1929 Spanish-style home in Westwood. As comfortable gutting a fish as negotiating a multimillion-dollar deal, Dana also recharges by heading out into the open ocean on a fishing boat or connecting with others during long beach walks. Dana is a graduate of Smith College and a consummate professional who continues to grow her referral base and ambassador pool with the closing of each transaction.
“Dana Cataldi and her team are phenomenal at what they do. It took 6 years of persistence, but they finally got us the home that we wanted. When it came time to sell our property, they were meticulous; counseled expertly; and got us everything we asked for. They handled inspections and every detail of the close. Our property went well above asking with multiple offers.”
