 Dana, Michelle, and Kiana are a fantastic team. They helped us navigate the highly competitive Chevy Chase & Bethesda house market to find the perfect home for our family. Dana and Michelle did a great job understanding what types of houses and neighborhoods appealed to us, then helped provided us with a ton of great properties that fit our criteria. Since the market is highly competitive, one of the great advantages of working with them is Dana's strong relationships with other Realtors. Once we had interest in a property, we would quickly get a full background to understand how much interest there was in the property and what we would need to do to get a competitive offer in. When we were ready to get an offer in, the team was incredibly helpful organizing inspectors (home, radon, pest, etc.) and anything else we needed. Highly recommended!!

 Dana is delightful! Her quick replies from the very beginning of the process of buying a condo were impressive; she was very patient and knowledgeable with our questions. Her assistant Michelle was wonderful with all the showings we requested. Even tedious paperwork became fun with her charming personality and enthusiastic spirit. Thanks again for the nice welcome gifts once we were happily settled into the condo!

 Dana represented my husband and me in the purchase of our condo at Leisure World.
She is extremely professional and efficient.
Her negotiating skills are excellent making sure all our interests are met.
She answered our questions timely.
I highly recommend Dana in representing you for the sale or purchase of your property.

 Dana knows this area very well. She was able to help us price competitively for a quick sale. She is not pushy, but she is firm and realistic. She helped navigate our sale with some ridiculously over-demanding first time buyers. She has excellent resources: both handyman and cleaning crew were top  notch! Despite a difficult situation with extended travel out of town, all documents were signed and delivered as needed. She is a gem!

 Dana, Michelle and the rest of the team were great! As a first time buyer and not knowing everything I need to know, they patiently guided me through the whole process, answering any questions I may have had in a timely manner even during the weekends! I will not hesitate to hire them again in the future!

Annie Bartoli

 Dana and her team are extremely efficient and nice. Moreover, Dana speaks French and knows the differences between the European and the US systems in the process of buying homes, which was very helpful for us.
She took the time to explain all the specifics of each step, and to precisely answer our numerous questions.
We are very happy with her work and we highly recommend her.

Jeannie Yu

 My husband and I had met several agents, and found that we meshed really well with Dana. She and Michelle were excellent. They immediately gave us a sense of ease with their professionalism and honesty. Buying our first home was a stressful process, and we really wanted to make a good  investment. So when it came to working with an agent, the traits we valued highly were honesty and wisdom. Dana demonstrated both, and we felt that she was doing everything she could to guide us toward making a sound decision.
I'll admit that we were sometimes difficult to get in touch with since we work so much and couldn't always take calls or return emails quickly. She and Michelle always responded warmly and patiently. It was ultimately this final trait that won us over completely. They made every interaction pleasant and removed any source of stress. Dana and Michelle walked us through the negotiation, title and settlement process, and they even helped us with arranging the home inspection, plumbers, electricians, general contractors, etc.
I would wholeheartedly recommend working with this team for their incredible professionalism, honesty, and experience.

 Good experience- helpful, reasonable, easy to work with--The situation surrounding the sale of our house was complicated and Dana handled it all with expertise and efficiency. Dana made the whole process of selling our house as stress free as possible and I highly recommend her!

Jessica Lefkow

 Dana was everything we could have asked for in a realtor. She was responsive to our particular priorities; speed and ease in a sell/buy arrangement were of particular importance to us, (Dana served as our buying agent elsewhere in the region, as well). Her excellence extends to the rest of her team. I will- and already have!- recommended Dana to friends.

Bob Renjel

I could not be happier with my experience with Dana. I worked with her in the past to get my condo rented. When my previous tenant moved out, I contacted her again for the sale of the property. I am currently living in Australia, I wanted a quick sale of the unit. Dana did enough research to tell me what would be the best time and price to sell my unit. After one open house, I received an offer at almost full asking price (8 days after the property went on the market). Despite my distance from DC, Dana worked with me to complete the sale of property. She found contractors to complete the repairs requested by the buyer and arranged for each of them to complete the work in a timely manner. In addition, each time that I was had a question or needed information regarding the sale I heard from her in a timely manner. I would highly recommend her to anyone else in the DC/MD area seeking a professional real estate agent.

Judybeth Greene

Dana was fabulous and very patient in sheparding me through the process of buying my first house. Any time I had any qualm or concern, she directly addressed it and brought in experts to suggest solutions. She helped me get through the loan application process, the inspection and follow up stuff. She is a terrific advocate. She also helped me my former husband lower our property taxes by giving us information to appeal our tax assessment. I woudl recommend her very highly. Jb

Stephanie Davis

Dana was without a doubt the best move we made in our search for a home. She was incredibly efficient, credible, articulate and knowledgeable about the area. She gave us great advice and really listened to what we wanted in a home. I cannot imagine this process without Dana by our side. We will be recommending her to anyone we know who needs a home and will never buy or sell another home in Maryland, DC or Virginia without her help.

Samia Patel

I recently purchased a house in Kensington through Dana and was extremely impressed by her knowledge of the area, her ability to communicate this knowledge and most of all by her committment to advice me in a way that was always with my best interest at heart. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Paul Hemme

Dana represented us on a house we were interested in buying, but in the end the purchase fell through because of issues associated with repairs made to the house. It was a stressful situation for us, to say the least, but through it all Dana had earned our trust with her professionalism, her uncompromising integrity, and thoroughness in her follow-up. It was reassuring to know that our agent had our best interest at heart and wanted us to be completely comfortable with our decisions. We would recommend Dana to any of our friends looking for a real estate agent.

Roger Morier

I found working with Dana to be truly an enlightening and rewarding experience. She brought deep market knowledge and a patience to bring me along as I came to understand the pros and cons of selling at the time I did. She made good, creative recommendations about improvements to the house to enhance its sale value, and she was top notch in negotiating the sale with the buyers, working (I know) at all hours on my behalf. I also appreciated that Dana listened well, really "hearing" what I was saying about my circumstances and requirements in a sale. That thoughtful understanding and ability to see the best, fairest solution for everyone helped a lot in our good relationship and in the sale. I would not hesitate to recommend Dana to someone else considering the real estate market in the Washington area, in Bethesda area in particular.

Antoine Bouet

I met Dana as she was recommanded by friends of mine who sold their house one year ago. She was much appreciated for her seriousness and professionalism. Friends told me she is dedicated and honest. She is also a good planner of the whole process

Angela Sandford

Dana has been FABULOUS with me. I was a nervous, ill-informed, first time home buyer back in 2008 and she really walked me through the process and explained it all. She was extremely responsive and knew about the areas that I was looking in. She helped me narrow down specific things that I would not negotiate on, in a home. Since buying my lovely home, I have been in contact with Dan several times for advise on other properties as well as market values. Though my sale has been complete for 4 years, she still remains responsive, helpful, kind and informative. Her service and care for her customers cannot be matched by any other realtor. She is truly a gem and NO ONE will ever be dissatisfied with her remarkable knowledge, professionalism and service. I HIGHLY recommend her!!!!

Mireille Picou

I was looking for appartments as investments. Dana did an expert job in researching the right area, advising on how to make a careful offer and making sure that I had all the important tools to be able to rent (How to do a background check, example of lease, etc). She listened to my unique needs and helped me get started my new Real Estate investment adventure. Dana is a true professional any buyer, seller or renter can really count on for the best result.Thank you Dana for your dedication and talented professionalism.

Ken & Sharon Thibodeau

We loved our home in Bethesda, but weren't sure how others would react to its size and location when we decided to sell. Dana did an expert job of researching sales of comparable properties and she suggested a pricing strategy that encouraged potential buyers to see the value we hoped they would. This approach led to multiple offers within a few days and a winning bid at 125% of what we had proposed. Needless to say, we were very happy with Dana's work and recommend her highly to anyone about to launch a real estate transaction.

Gregoire Rota-Graziosi

Dana was always available and provided us very usefull advices. Her french is perfect. Thanks again.

Paul Dent

Dana was instrumental in our quick and successful sale. She understands the area, the repairs/improvements that will facilitate selling, and how to market a home. She helped us in coordinating the preparation of the home for market, as we were half-way across the country. I highly recommend that you consider use of Dana's services.

Anthony & Jean

Moving to Bethesda from France was no easy task, but working with Dana made it very enjoyable! We gave her our criteria and she found a wide range of houses for us to look at during our week long stay. She never gave us the impression that it was "mission impossible" to find a house in three fact she dedicated 3 days to us to make it happen!! Her preparation before our visit was excellent, and her follow up was very professional, thorough and greatly appreciated. We were well informed and guided through the process of buying a house and would recommend Dana to anyone buying, renting or selling a house in the DC area.

Laurent Fabre

Coming from France, it was not easy to buy a house around DC. Dana has helped us to find the right house for us. She also managed to get it at the right price, and, although we had no experience, little history in the country i-e no credit score, Dana recommanded the best Mortgage companies for us. Dana explained clearly the whole process and managed to get everyone doing their job quikcly... so the time spent between our first visits and the mooviong in was ONLY 3 months !

Sandy Y. Clinton

         Dana came through with flying colors. She did everything she promised and more. Within 5 days we had a ratified contract, greater than the asking price. I think the success of the sale of my family home was due to Dana’s experience in the market; her ability to see what needs to be done & take charge of doing it; her frankness & practical thinking; and her desire to do the right thing for her clients

I couldn't have asked for more. I plan on recommending you to anyone and everyone thinking of buying a home! You are worth your weight in GOLD.

Dana was always 1 to 2 steps ahead of me, trying to provide guidance in ways I didn't realize I needed. This helped me feel prepared and ready for each step in the homebuying process.

We got to know Dana in April 2010 when we started to look for a house to buy in DC. At the time we were still living in Belgium.
Thanks to her perfect knowledge of the market, full dedication and great interpersonal skills we managed to find the right house for us in just a week! Then she helped us go through all the steps of the acquisition process. Being new comers in the US, it was a difficult transaction which would not have been completed without Dana’s creative drive.
We strongly recommend Dana to anyone wanting to buy a property in the DC area. She has all out trust. She is also completely bilingual in French speaking individuals was a real plus for us.
