Dana has always had a passion for design and architecture. With more than 15 years of interior design experience, focusing on turn-of-the-century, mid-century, new construction and everything in between, she has found joy in bringing homes to life. Now, in her real estate career, she’s flipped the script, helping clients bring life to homes. Dana mainly serves clients in the North Shore area, but as a Brew City native, she’s knowledgeable in all areas of Milwaukee, Waukesha, and Ozaukee counties. Building relationships with clients is her top priority, leading her business with the principles of integrity, honesty, tenacity, resourcefulness, and attention to detail.
In her spare time, it wouldn’t be unusual to find Dana walking and biking through Milwaukee’s North Shore for hours, obsessing over the incredible residential architecture and design. A classical pianist and co-owner of the public television show, Wisconsin Foodie, you might call Dana multi-passionate, but she most enjoys spending time with her husband and son in her beloved Shorewood community.
"Dana was always up for a house tour and patient as we waited for the right home to come along."
We couldn’t recommend Dana more - she is such a talented realtor and so fun to work alongside. We recently relocated to the Milwaukee area and Dana gave us a good sense of the landscape and helped us quickly narrow down our search. Dana was always up for a house tour and patient as we waited for the right home to come along.
Once we found the home that felt right, Dana was straightforward about what it would take to win in a competitive market and helped us craft an offer that we were comfortable with and would stand out. Our offer was accepted, and we couldn’t be happier with how things turned out!

" Dana made our forever dream home a reality!"
In today's crazy housing market with all the ups and downs, we thought we would have to settle for something less than we imagined. Dana made our forever dream home a reality! Her expertise in the way she handled the purchase and sale of our current home was just simply amazing. The sellers did not even want to consider us for the purchase because of a home sale contingency. Dana did everything in her power to make the sellers feel confident that our sale would go through which in return would allow us to get the dream home we always wanted. Every step of the way, she made us feel comfortable and helped us understand what each task at hand was, from connecting us to the right people for finance questions to fixing the sink air gap got fixed in a timely fashion. She also provided candid and honest feedback on other houses that we decided not to go with which truly showed she had our best interest at heart and not just the sale. We looked at many houses! She was able to pull off everything without a ripple in the water. We had two smooth and successful transactions and now truly get to relax in our dream home. Dana is a great asset to your home buying or selling team. She will do everything and anything in her power to make it right!

"She was 100% right! I am thrilled!"
I was relocating to Milwaukee for a new job during the most difficult housing market- so stress upon stress! When I first met Dana, I clicked with her right away. She immediately understood what I was looking for, listened to what was important to me, and used her design background to seek out houses that were interesting, unique and would fit my new lifestyle. Dana was with me every step of the way, explained to me processes and strategies that I needed to understand and act upon in this extremely insane competitive market in a city I have never been to. She was extremely patient and stuck with me through the ups and downs and kept in constant communication, even during a late night of waiting to hear back if my offer was accepted. I wouldn’t be in my dream home today without Dana taking the quick action and having the professional savvy to seek out the seller and get me in to see my house first. I recall my very first conversation with Dana, she made a statement that she said “by the end of this journey you will find a home that is beyond what you are thinking of today” and she was 100% right! I am thrilled!
Dana is extremely determined and dedicated, her knowledge and instinct is spot on! I highly recommend Dana!

"We could not have asked for more!"
We were extraordinarily fortunate our paths cross with Dana and knew immediately that she was the realtor for us. We have purchased multiple homes in the past and our experience with realtors has always been mixed. Our ideal realtor requires style, strategy, market knowledge, patience, attention to detail, resourcefulness and financial acumen, a combination that is extraordinarily rare. Dana checks all of these boxes. We were seeking a very specific home and were not willing to rush the process. Dana was patient and unflappable through the 7+ month process and when we found exactly what we were looking for, Dana helped us craft an aggressive strategy having the winning offer within hours. On top of that, she helped us sell our condo for well over asking on day one of the listing! Lastly, Dana was a wealth of knowledge regarding the best contractors to assist with all things related to buying and selling. We could not have asked for more.
