After an introduction by a phone call or email, I set up a meeting to better understand your needs and timeframe as well as introduce you to details of my services. If you are a home seller, I will schedule a second meeting where I will provide an in-depth analysis of a suggested list price of your home as well as a marketing strategy and calendar. If you are a home buyer, I will set you up to receive automated listing information for those properties that meet your criteria as well as provide you weekly information about properties that are new to the market. Based on continual feedback, I will help you narrow your search. In 2016, my listings sold in an average of 12 days and my buyers secured their home with an average of 1.5 offers.

Real estate commissions are negotiated with the sellers of the home. Buyers pay no commission.
Dana followed her mother into the business after a successful sales career and has sold nearly half a billion of real estate.
One of the most exciting things about living and owning a home in the East Bay is the incredible diversity of its community. Dana has worked with a wide range of clients who share the desire to decisively buy or sell property in a highly competitive market.

Hire someone local. The market is extremely competitive and having "known" representation is often key in securing a property or preparing a home to appeal to the broadest possible demand.
