About Dana


Dana’s love for real estate began in college with her degree in Interior Design and Architecture. Her passion for unique, modern and historic properties transitioned to a real estate career in 1999 working with large developers on numerous loft conversions including: Davis Square Lofts, Chestnut Hill Lofts, Court Square Press Lofts and Industrie Lofts. This background has been invaluable to Dana’s clients from helping them to navigate through architectural plans to renovation ideas and property staging. Her extensive knowledge and experience has elevated her to become a top producer and now she joins Compass as an 18 year veteran of the Boston and Cambridge real estate markets.

Dana's career has thrived from the long lasting relationships she’s formed with her clients, their personal referrals, rave reviews and repeat business. Dana has continued to grow her business selling all forms of real estate covering various price points. She has helped hundreds of clients to buy and sell real estate throughout Greater Boston and Cambridge,including the surrounding suburbs.

Dana’s a native of Louisville Kentucky, graduating from the University of Louisville. Her love for her hometown, the Kentucky Derby and Louisville’s music scene is equal to the love for her adopted home since 1997. Dana lived in the South End for 7 years and has resided in Cambridge since 2003.

  • "I would recommend Dana to anybody searching for a home. I recently closed on a house after 6 months of searching with Dana as my Real Estate agent. She is very knowledgeable, diligent, extremely nice and pleasure to work with. The closing process with the bank was pretty rough, her assistance and involvement during that time was invaluable. She never let me down."
