Ensuring my clients are well educated.
Perhaps it's because I was a teacher for 27 years, or maybe it's because buying or selling your home is such an important decision, either way, I am dedicated to educating my clients throughout the buying and selling process. Informed decisions are the best decisions. My attention to detail, professional integrity, effective negotiating skills, and lifelong knowledge of this community is the reputation I've developed.
I began in real estate 12 years ago as a real estate investor with my own company. I renovated and sold or rented my properties. I then persued my real estate license and have been working the market ever since. This early experience allows me to bring to my clients, a unique quality. I am able to show buyer clients the potential a home has with a few renovations. For my clients selling their home, I am able to help them achieve the most desired qualities of their homes for which buyers are looking, thus getting top dollar for their properties. Moving to @properties in 2019 allows me to bring unrivaled marketing resources to my clients.
Having grown up and worked as an educator in this community, I am dedicated to showing buyers new to the area the vast resources and opportunities southwest Michigan provides. I serve on the Lakeshore Excellence Foundation which is a non profit organization giving grant money to teachers of the Lakeshore School district of which I taught for 22 years. My passion for this community runs deep.
My services extend beyond the closing date. Past clients still reach out to me for the resources a lifetime of living in this area provides. I look forward to helping buyers and sellers find your DREAM of home in this great community. I would love to share my knowledge and LOVE for southwest Michigan with you and help you find HOME.

"Dana is the BEST!! I'm so glad I found her because I don't think I would've made the right decisions without her. She knows her stuff!! Not just the real estate market, she is very knowledgeable about inspections, appraisals, the guts of a house; all this stuff that makes her a super asset. Plus, Dana will hold your hand if that's what you need!! She goes above and beyond any agent that I've seen!! She's understanding of your feelings (no matter how emotional you are) and will gently guide you through whichever process you're going through; buying and/or selling. I highly recommend her!! Don't want to take someone's word? Just have a meet/greet with her; she'll prove herself immediately!!"
"Dana is an amazing realtor! She has been our realtor twice. She is very knowledgeable, hard working, organized, prompt, available, honest, and has her clients best interest at heart. We would highly recommended her!"
"My wife and I found Dana by happenstance. She was the listing agent for a property we had inquired about. Though that house was already under contract Dana offered to meet with us and discuss our home buying needs. From the first time we met Dana she was very friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and patient with us as we stumbled our way through being first time homebuyers. Dana helped us refine our search to match what was the best fit for us. All along the way Dana was readily available to answer all questions, address concerns with the seller and the seller‘s agent on our behalf, and she worked to get us the best deal possible, all while keeping us in our budget! She made the first time homebuying process very smooth and we highly recommend Dana to anyone considering buying a home in southwest Michigan."
"Dana was amazing to work with. I had never sold a home before and had no idea where to start! She gave me great advice as to what needed to be done to my home to sell it. She was never pushy and always easy to get in touch with. She had a great instinct for who would be looking for a house like mine and she warned me it would sell quickly. She was right! My little house sold in 3 days! I'm so grateful I found her and would recommend her to anyone needing a realtor in SW Michigan."
"Dana was very intuitive to what we were looking for. She helped us with the process of finding our first home and made it as simple as possible."
