Dana is delightful! Her quick replies from the very beginning of the process of buying a condo were impressive; she was very patient and knowledgeable with our questions. Her assistant Michelle was wonderful with all the showings we requested. Even tedious paperwork became fun with her charming personality and enthusiastic spirit. Thanks again for the nice welcome gifts once we were happily settled into the condo!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Chevy Chase, MD.
My husband and I had met several agents, and found that we meshed really well with Dana. She and Michelle were excellent. They immediately gave us a sense of ease with their professionalism and honesty. Buying our first home was a stressful process, and we really wanted to make a good investment. So when it came to working with an agent, the traits we valued highly were honesty and wisdom. Dana demonstrated both, and we felt that she was doing everything she could to guide us toward making a sound decision.
I'll admit that we were sometimes difficult to get in touch with since we work so much and couldn't always take calls or return emails quickly. She and Michelle always responded warmly and patiently. It was ultimately this final trait that won us over completely. They made every interaction pleasant and removed any source of stress. Dana and Michelle walked us through the negotiation, title and settlement process, and they even helped us with arranging the home inspection, plumbers, electricians, general contractors, etc.
I would wholeheartedly recommend working with this team for their incredible professionalism, honesty, and experience.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Rockville, MD.
I just bought a house. Working with Dana has been the best real estate experience I have ever had. I had two agents before Dana (over a 10 year period) and was never able to buy. I met Dana at a Real Estate seminar she presented. When we talked after the seminar she listen to me attentively and understood what I wanted right away. When I contacted her to tell her I was ready to buy, we found something within a month, that is exactly what I wanted, will all the criteria on my list fulfilled. Dana provided all sort of very useful information surrounding the purchase of a home, and accompanied me in the process all the way. She is very wonderful to work with and very efficient.

It has been such a pleasure getting to know you, and I'm so happy for you. We found just the right house at the right time!
Dana did a stellar job in selling my home. It was a tough sale but she did all she could do to obtain an offer for my home. She was extremely responsive, professional and thorough. She was fantastic throughout the process.
Dana was able to achieve what we felt might be impossible. We had a stacked town home in Germantown, MD that was very difficult to sell because of the four flights of stairs you had to climb before even getting to the living space. With her expertise and excellent follow-up skills we were able to get a contract in just over 60 days. We were anxious, pushy clients, but Dana helped ease our concerns by answering/returning every phone call and email. Her competence in the financial and procedural aspects of the selling and buying process left us confident that we were in good hands. Because of that, we've already recommended her to close friends. Thank you, Dana!
Dana and her team was fabulous! For a first time home buyer I had many worries on every steps but Dana and her team explained everything I should know. She compared each houses I looked at and gave me her professional opinions. So I can find a perfect house. Her team was very kind and always there when I needed them. I asked about 1000+ questions and every time I asked a question, they were right there for me even though it's late night. I would highly recommend her team to anyone who wants to buy their 'HOME'. Her team will take care of EVERYTHING. And most importantly, she is very HONEST!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 in Silver Spring, MD.
Dana and her team were very professional. I had a bad experience with a previous agent who was too pushy. Dana and Michelle were patient as we looked around multiple properties. She gave us good advice on property value and rental potential of properties. She negotiated well for us with a difficult seller. It was great to have her as a first-time home buyer because she explained everything to us with good detail and was always just a phone call away from responding to our inquiries. Her schedule was flexible and we would often visit our current home for various purposes on very short notice. I can't recommend Dana and Michelle enough.

Thank you Dan! We loved working with you, and navigating through the twists and turns on the way to getting you into your home.
Dana Scanlon was a pleasure to work with during the sale of our home. We took her suggestions regarding how to prepare our home and her predictions regarding the sale were right on the mark. We received several offers during the initial open house weekend. Our home sold quickly and above the list price. In summary, Dana is professional, punctual, responsive, enthusiastic, smart and confident. I cannot imagine having a better experience selling our home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Bethesda, MD.
We had a very good experience with Dana Scanlon. We live in Paris, France and were looking for a house in Bethesda. Dana was very responsive, and orchestrated an intensive house hunting trip during the small window of time we had to visit Bethesda. After we chose a house and had it under contract, she helped us with the closing and many other details while we were still in Paris. She has acted as our on site representative and guide. We enthusiastically recommend her.
