"Senior Advisor The Dana Group"
"Integrity and honesty are imperative in building a relationship with my clients. Outstanding service and client priority is the easy part. The secret is to establish and build a strong bond with my clients from the beginning. I never want to be viewed as the "used car salesman" that many agents in the city have been; my entire business is based on referrals and if I were to simply sell...my clients wouldnt be happy in the long run, nor would they refer me to their family and friends. I am committed to creating an environment of trust and pride myself in sincerity, honesty and encourage candidness in my client base."

Clients are saying:
"Dana is amazing. He is incredibly, patient, helpful, and knowledgeable. I asked him a ton of questions, and went to him for a ton of advice, and he always came through. You cannot ask for more in a realtor."
"Like clockwork, Dana delivered again - selling our house in Evanston in under two weeks - in the fall - for 96% of asking price. He also negotiated a month of lease-back from our buyers at no cost to us, greatly increasing the flexibility we have in our move.During the sales process he advised us on staging and improvements and produced a staggeringly impressive marketing book with photos fit for a magazine. His professionalism and industry expertise are absolutely top-tier and, as before, I will continue to recommend Dana - and only Dana - to everyone I know contemplating selling their home.I would be remiss if I didn't add that it was Dana who negotiated the purchase of my home 3 years prior, getting us a signed contract less than 4 hours after the house hit the market. We made 30% on this transaction thanks in large part to his insights, marketing, negotiating and downright skill.In three years Dana has executed 4 transactions on my behalf, 3 sales and one purchase, with a net transaction time of 41 days, a net transaction gross of roughly $3,500,000, and an average sales price-to-asking ratio of 95%There are not enough good words to describe Dana as an agent, so I am happy to be a reference should any potential client wish to contact me directly.Best Regards,Mike Adams"
"I struggled with spending the money to stage and paint the house, but followed Dana's advice and it paid off 10 fold. I sold the house, which had been on the market several times prior, in a week with multiple offers. My advice is to hire a professional and listen to what they say; they know best and Dana proves it time and time again!!!!!"
"Dana is great. He has helped me on various deals and always has very helpful insight!!"
