"Integrity and honesty are imperative in building a relationship with my clients. Outstanding service and client priority is the easy part. The secret is to establish and build a strong bond with my clients from the beginning. I never want to be viewed as the "used car salesman" that many agents in the city have been; my entire business is based on referrals and if I were to simply sell...my clients wouldn't be happy in the long run, nor would they refer me to their family and friends. I am committed to creating an environment of trust and pride myself in sincerity, honesty and encourage candidness in my client base."

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Irving Park, Chicago, IL.

I like to operate on a hand-shake with people I can trust. Dana definitely fit this profile, and helped us make a very good home-buying decision about which we feel great. He was highly recommended to us by friends. He developed a good feel for us as a family and understood what we were looking for and needed in a home--something we had trouble finding in an agent the first time we started looking at properties. Dana kept us disciplined and helped us quickly line up the right house--and the right seller--well within the price range we initially discussed. He provided very effective guidance and advocacy during the search, negotiation, financing and closing processes. We're in great shape now in terms of a good home at a good value, in a good neighborhood and with a good budget. In short, Dana's a great agent that we'd work with again and would recommend to our friends without hesitation.

The only potential negative (and I don't think it was a true negative) was that we eventually circled back and purchased the first home we toured, and so we did not spend a tremendous amount of time searching through many, many properties looking for "perfection." Honestly, though, we were comfortable acting decisively because the home really satisfied our criteria--there's nothing wrong with being efficient! I'm sure if it hadn't worked out, Dana would have committed the necessary additional time to help us find the right place.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $350K in East Ukrainian Village, Chicago, IL.

In the tumultuous process of purchasing a home, you need someone that is trustworthy and has your best interest at heart. As a first time homebuyer, we were extremely cautious and somewhat fearful of the commitment and process related to purchasing a home. Dana was a consummate professional throughout the entire process. Dana is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without him. Dana never made us feel ‘silly’ about our concerns, but more importantly helped us move past them. Dana spent A LOT of time with us throughout the process making sure that we thoroughly understood the market, gave us exceptionally sound advise which helped us determine what was important to us in a home, ensured we inspected our new home thoroughly and wrapped everything up with a red bow through the closing. He was a great negotiator as well and always handled himself with integrity and honor. The result is that we landed in a perfect home at a superb purchase price.

To reiterate, we are nothing but pleased with Dana and his expertise; and we would recommend him to any and everyone

Sold a home in 2013.

Dana has exceeded all of our expectations and we will recommend him to anyone who is going to buy or sell a house. Being first-time sellers, he gave us perfect advice to help make our house ready to sell and guided us through the entire sale process to make sure we got the most out of our sale.

Dana is also handling our purchase and is continuing to amaze us with the high level of support and skill to get us the house of our dreams.

We cannot thank Dana enough!!
