From the start, Dana was very accommodating, helpful and professional. I found her knowledge of the area to be unsurpassed and she was quick to match our interests with local properties. She was so well prepared that I believe it gave us a significant competitive advantage. I look forward to recommending Dana to anyone.

I would recommend Dana to anyone who is looking for an honest hard-working realtor who keeps her buyers in mind constantly. Dana appears to know every single house in the area, and suggested many properties that we wouldn’t have considered on our own. Some of her suggestions were in advance of listing!
- Ruth, Shelburne
I have worked with Dana on two different real estate transactions, and as we have moved 10 times during the past 20 years, feel more than qualified to rate Dana as truly one of the best realtors I have ever worked with. She is detail oriented, professional, and knowledgeable on all aspects of the buying/selling process.
- Vickie, Shelburne
Dana sold my house for $21,000 more than asking price two hours after listing it-- with multiple offers! Dana knows the local market, is incredibly resourceful and adds the necessary calm to a potentially stressful situation. I strongly recommend her and her team to sell your home.
- Ruth, Burlington
Dana was better than excellent. She was knowledgeable, accessible, and provided value where I didn't even know that I needed it.
- Rob, South Burlington
I had a great experience buying my home 8 years ago through Dana, so when it was time to sell she was the obvious choice. She is very knowledgeable, professional and gave us great advice. When the buyers financing ran into difficulties she helped to keep things moving forward and everyone on an even keel. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
