I knew I always had her full attention and could not have asked for better guidance or service.

I met Dana on our daughters’ first day of kindergarten. (Those daughters just completed their first year of college!) As we talked during class trips, birthday parties and drop-off and pick-up, I was always impressed by her positive energy, attention to detail & calm spirit amidst chaos.

When I moved east, I rented out my Santa Monica townhouse. Periodically, Dana would ask if I was thinking of selling. My consistent reply was that this would be too small a property for her, as I knew about the beautiful houses in her portfolio. She assured me she represented a range of homes and offered to look at my place. It had been a rental for nine years and fallen into some disarray. Dana and a contractor walked through the space and gave me direct clear-eyed advice regarding options for fixing it vs. selling “as is.” Her deep knowledge of the current Santa Monica market informed these options.

She calmly guided me through the sales process, listening to and answering all my questions patiently. As I was 3,000 miles away, she and her team managed everything to prep the condo for a sale, including getting estimates, identifying vendors and meeting people to handle on-site issues.

Her sales strategy was dead-on: we priced to sell and after 3 days on the market, received multiple offers above asking and closed within a month. During that month, she and her team stayed in close touch, and got things done as quickly as possible to facilitate a smooth closing. She was available at all hours and throughout, maintained the positive energy, attention to detail & calm spirit I had noticed many years earlier. I knew I always had her full attention and could not have asked for better guidance or service.
