Clients are saying:

"Dana is a queen. I would recommend her to anyone."

"Dana did a fabulous job helping me and my daughter find just the right place in the right neighborhood. And she went the extra mile at every step. I'd hire her again in a heartbeat."

"Dana has an eye for detail and is very professional in her approach to helping her clients. I will definitely use Dana for all my real estate needs. Her response to all my questions were well thought out and researched. Without Dana's expertise I would have been lost, being a long distance owner."

"Dana worked to understand what I was looking for in a unit. She knows the area I was looking in and was able to identify properties that met my needs and steer me away from those she knew didn't hit the mark. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Dana again."

"Dana handled the process of finding new tenants for my condo in Ukrainian Village. As I haven't lived in Chicago for 8 years, she did an excellent job briefing me on the process, and how the laws had changed. She also coordinated the refresh that my unit needed after 8 years with the same tenant. She identified contractors, and managed the scheduling and inspection of the work. Dana went above and beyond in this regard, as I was traveling overseas when all this was taking place, AND she had to coordinate at the last minute with a roofer and my condo association to repair a leaky roof that damaging my unit's ceiling and walls. Dana kept me abreast of things throughout the entire process, sending me texts and photos of the work in progress. I could never have done this myself, and she was on top of it from start to finish, and managed everything very proactively. She also found me some fantastic new tenants, and handled the background and credit checks, and the lease-signing process. A longtime resident of Chicago with a wide network of friends and professionals, Dana has an excellent grasp of the local real estate scene, awesome style, and a very buttoned-up yet approachable demeanor. She will be my go-to professional for any real estate needs I have in the future!"
