Dana moved to Chicago in 2014 when her husband Will was temporarily relocated by his tech company. What was originally supposed to be a 1 year stint, turned into an indefinite stay as they both fell in love with Chicago, especially the uniqueness of its neighborhoods and, of course, the food!
Upon graduating Skidmore College in New York with a double major in Business Management & International Affairs and an Art Studio minor, Dana immediately stepped into managing the operations of a Manhattan fine arts and luxury goods wholesaler.
After 5 years of running back and forth between NYC auction houses and galleries, Dana moved to Chicago and began the hunt for the perfect home. As her career elevated as an executive assistant to two of the fastest moving people in Chicago, her desire to improve her living quarters sent her to every corner as she quickly learned the ins and outs of Chicago's neighborhoods.
With her deep experience in fine arts, luxury goods, business management and home hunting, Dana will help create a vision and plan that best fits your needs in a highly efficient, yet fun, process!
Outside of the office you can find Dana walking her dog Reggie, attending fitness classes or having brunch in Fulton Market where she now resides.
Clients are saying:
"Absolutely LOVE Dana! She was unbelievably helpful and I made a new friend that I will for sure stay in touch with! Dana was very prompt with answering any emails, phone calls or questions that I had. She also understood exactly what we wanted, so we were able to see multiple apartments that were amazing and were beyond our expectations, which made the process even more exciting for my roommate and I. Anyone in need of help finding a place definitely needs Dana in their life."
"Dana was incredible!! I live out of town and only had a short time in Chicago, but she was SO organized and able to fit in several apartment visits in such a short time! She is so meticulous and efficient. She took notes during all of our visits and made me such a thorough spread sheet outlining all of the details and pros and cons we discussed. She is truly talented at what she does and I know I am in the best hands with her!! I know we will end up with the apartment of our dreams with her as our broker!"
"Dana was EXTREMELY helpful, patient, and kind throughout the entire process of searching, viewing, and finding an apartment in Chicago and remains to be so even after we have signed our lease. I was living 4 hours away from the city when we began our initial search with Dana and she made the process incredibly easy and enjoyable by updating us daily on available properties that fit our requirements. She organized all of our feedback into an accessible spread sheet and set up a day of showings based on the listings we liked the most. On the day of the showing Dana drove us from each apartment, provided us with folders containing information on each property, helped us rate each apartment after viewing them, and provided us with any information we needed to know about each property and the area around it. If Dana did not know an exact answer, she sought out answers immediately and provided us with answers to our questions. Dana goes above and beyond from start to finish, and even after you sign a lease, to make the process easy for her clients. Not only is Dana extremely professional, but she makes a rather stressful process into an enjoyable and exciting experience."
