Get in Touch

  • Buyer

    We worked with Dana when buying a home in the Lamorinda area - a decision that we were a little nervous about, since we had to sell our home first and then look for a home in the area, which is a pretty competitive market. In addition, homes are older in that area and we weren't sure if we were going to find a house that we liked in our price range. Dana was simply amazing - she lives in Orinda and knows the area inside and out, and took me on a 3-hour drive through the area so that when I saw homes listed online I could immediately place which areas they were. She gave lots of insider tips and info that you simply cannot get by working with an agent outside of that area. As a mother of a toddler, she provided us with a lot of info on childcare, schools, and activities available to us as parents of two kids under 5. Dana was always available whenever we called, texted, or emailed her. When we finally did find a home, she was instrumental in coming up with a strategy for us to get the offer in quick (she had already walked us through writing up an offer weeks before), and what to ask for and what not to in our offer. We ended up getting into escrow in a home just days after getting into escrow on the sale of our home, and Dana was quick to get us scheduled with the necessary inspections, and she provided helpful guidance on which inspections are important in the Lamorinda area. Throughout the closing process, Dana kept us up to date multiple times a day, let us know in advance when we would need to provide information, and worked with our mortgage officer to ensure a smooth closing. She met with us several times before closing for inspections and to let us into the house for contractor estimates. Dana wasn't just an agent - she feels like a friend. I know we'll be keeping in touch with her after we move, and if we ever need a real estate agent's services again, we know we'll be calling Dana!
  • Seller

    Dana was a great realtor to work with and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell a home. She sold my house while I was living out of town and managed everything from finding vendors for repair work and staging to helping me pick paint colors. She’s professional, knowledgeable, honest, hard working, and friendly. She listened to all of my concerns, worked within all of my constraints, and always made time to answer questions, talk through options, or give advice. Unlike other realtors I’ve worked with, I always felt that Dana had my best interests in mind and I never felt pressure to make decisions or do something that I wasn’t comfortable with. Thanks to Dana, selling my home was an easy and positive experience! I truly hope that I have the opportunity to work with her again in the future.
  • Buyer

    Dana is the best there is! We worked with Dana when we moved from San Francisco to Orinda and needed to find our forever home. With every home in Lamorinda being unique, we knew that it would be tough to find just the right place for us and that we needed someone with hyper-local knowledge. Dana was recommended to us via a friend and proved to be exactly the realtor we were looking for. She patiently assisted and guided us for over a year while we looked for the perfect fit. She helped us through many viewings, phone calls, and text exchanges and provided invaluable advice on various nuances, pitfalls and neighborhood specific issues in Orinda. Buying in Lamorinda is all about local knowledge and as someone who has lived in the area for a long time, Dana's insight is incredibly important. When we finally found the house we wanted, Dana helped steer us through the negotiation, closing and inspection process and helped us make sure we covered every angle. She is tough and willing to fight for her clients, but it's also clear that the agents on the other side of transaction enjoy working with her - very important when you're up against other buyers in a competitive market. Her connections and persistence allowed us to close on our home in 20 days while still getting every inspection that we were looking for. We couldn't be happier and will be recommending Dana to all of our friends for either buying or selling.
  • Seller

    I have worked with five different realtors in my life so far and Dana BY FAR was the best!!! She restored my faith in realtors. She is incredibly knowledgeable, knows her market extremely well, offers great advice, is NOT a pushy/sales type, keeps it real, is excellent with follow-up, keeps you in the loop every step of the way and her legal background is a perfect bonus!! Dana helped us sell our house exactly the way WE wanted to not the way she or anyone else felt we should sell it, and it worked! She offered excellent ideas to sell our home quickly with minimal disruption. If I wasn’t moving out of the area, Dana would be the one I would choose to help me buy my next home! You will not be disappointed when working with Dana, she is top notch!
  • Buyer

    I feel so fortunate to have met Dana. As first time homebuyers, we were nervous and a little intimidated by the competitive Bay Area market. Dana met with us shortly after we spoke on the phone about our interest in purchasing a home. She went over (in detail) everything that we needed to know prior to going through the whole process. In the months following that meeting, my husband and I had a lot of trouble figuring out the house and location that might be right for our growing family. Dana was there every step of the way, and was always honest with us about whether she felt like it was the right house. She was able to do this because she truly took the time to get to know us and our ever-changing needs as a family. As busy as she is, we never felt it as her clients. She always made us feel like we were her top priority. She was always available for a phone conversation, text, or email when we needed her or wanted her opinion. We finally found our home in a neighborhood that Dana had actually recommended and we ended up putting an offer in right when we saw it. Though we competed with another family, Dana’s persistence, negotiation skills, and all-around amazing personality helped us to get the house! Dana is honest, hard-working, patient, and willing to go all out for her clients. She’s not only an agent, but also feels like a friend. We will definitely call her again when the time comes!
  • Seller

    Dana is a true professional. We had to sell an older home that needed a lot of refurbishing, and we had to make many decisions regarding how much money we should invest in updating the house before we put it on the market. She was able to guide us through this decision-making process, and provided resources to get tasks completed. She was flexible in accommodating us when we had to change a deadline. Dana was very thorough in her market research regarding the list price, and implemented an effective marketing strategy to get our home sold quickly. We felt confident in choosing her as our realtor, and she confirmed that choice time and time again throughout the selling process. In the end, we sold the house for well over the asking price with multiple offers.
  • Buyer

    Being first time buyers in the ruthless market of the Bay Area we were immediately hit with a huge reality check. Enter Dana. From the moment we met her she made us feel at ease with her professionalism, confidence and knowledge about the entire process of buying - we knew we were in great hands. She was always available to talk out any concerns or doubts we had along the way and she was always there to share the excitement of every house we fell in love with too. Her dynamic strategy helped guide us to make informed decisions when making offers while never pushing us to do anything we didn't feel comfortable with. More than anything, we trusted her judgment whole-heartedly. She represented us in person for every offer we made and because of her persistence and commitment, we know without a doubt, she is the reason we are now living in our dream house. Whether you are a first time buyer or not, having Dana on your team is invaluable and I would highly recommend her. While we are in no hurry to leave our home, we can't wait to work with Dana again!
  • Buyer

    In today's world where personal contact and customer service are often lacking, Dana is a breath of fresh air. At every stage of the real estate purchase process, she exceeded our expectations, went above and beyond what was required, and held our hands when we needed it. Dana has a keen intuition and remarkable ability to understand what her clients are looking for. Call it empathy, emotional intelligence, or being perceptive -- in just a short time spent viewing homes with Dana, she quickly picked up on what we wanted and needed, and delivered both. This was particularly important because we purchased our home in a very competitive market, and Dana was aggressive and proactive in working with us to find our dream house. For Dana, above-and-beyond personal attention is the norm. She met with us multiple times in person and took the time to meet face-to-face with the listing agent and sellers to negotiate contract terms. Perhaps due to Dana’s legal background, she makes the entire transaction foolproof with thorough, consistent follow-up and follow-through on everything. She is so much more than just a real estate agent -- she is a superb resource for information about all aspects of the real estate buying and selling process. In a word, Dana is “amazing.” Just trust us!
  • Buyer & Seller

    I wouldn't just call Dana a real estate agent. With her you're getting a top real estate agent, lawyer, friend, and insider. This being our first home purchase, we didn't quite know what to expect. Dana answered each of our many questions promptly and thoroughly. She walked us through each stage of the searching and buying process, including getting us familiar with the Lamorinda area and connecting us with her preferred inspectors, contractors, and host of other excellent contacts. In such a competitive market, she made the process as painless as possible. Dana is incredibly knowledgable, detail-oriented, intelligent, professional, patient, and responsive. I would HIGHLY recommend her - we will definitely be using her again for any future real estate needs.
  • Buyer

    Being first-time home buyers was a daunting process to say the least. With our busy family and 6-day a week work schedules, Dana helped us secure our first home an hour away from where we were living at the time. When a good home comes on the market it could be gone within days, so we knew that response and turnaround time were key aspects in a good agent. Dana's response time was outstanding, keeping communication open all the time and providing a response within minutes. She was fantastic about making the process seem easy and flawless. Dana was the most detail-oriented, careful and prepared agent! I felt confident in her execution and keen eye for detail. Even six months after the sale, we still feel welcome to call her if we need anything. We were so happy to find such a responsive and responsible agent. We will not hesitate to use her again in the future. I would highly recommend Dana. She will work hard to get you what you want, and do so in a timely manner.
  • Seller

    Each time I’ve done business with Dana Reedy or referred someone to her for RE service(s) she does an exceptional job and I always get amazing feedback. I can only imagine how difficult it must be is to push a transaction so closely tied to emotions. Very difficult. It takes a very skilled professional who can connect to the client-base they serve. Major kudos! 5 stars and continued referrals/my best option for those with the highest standards.
  • Buyer

    I don't write many reviews, but I had to write something about Dana. She was such a pleasure to work with as first time homebuyers. We really didn't know much about the process in the beginning, and she very patiently walked us through the entire experience. From the initial search and what to look out for, to understanding inspections and contingencies, to tips for making the final offer. Her generosity with her time, continual follow ups and check ins, and overall diligence to her clients makes you feel very incredibly supported and informed throughout the whole experience. She also has a solid network of inspectors, professional service providers and recommended construction crews she can suggest to work on any home projects, both pre or post sale. I have already recommended Dana to a few of my close friends who are house hunting. You should work with her to find or sell your next home too. You will not regret it!
  • Buyer & Seller

    We are ecstatic to have found – and actually won – our “homerun” house! We could not have done it without Dana! Words cannot describe how thankful we are to have had Dana as our realtor, deal-marker, therapist and life line! We are so grateful to have worked with her and are so appreciative of how amazing, supportive and knowledge she was at every step along the way. We are thankful for her impressive patience, insight, hard work and ambition. We feel so lucky to have had her on our side. It was an absolute pleasure!
  • Buyer

    We had a fantastic experience with Dana. As first-time home buyers, we didn't know where to start and weren't quite ready to pull the trigger. Dana educated us on the process, sent us daily e-mails with houses that met our criteria, and somehow found time to show us houses at all hours given our busy schedules. After much searching, we found our dream house and, thanks to her, closed the deal on favorable terms. She always had time for our questions and concerns, and was quite level-headed when dealing with all involved -- much needed given some tough negotiations with sellers. We recommend her highly.
  • Buyer & Seller

    We've bought and sold a few homes now, and we can say that Dana is the best realtor we've worked with. She knows the market very well, is really thorough in her work, and really goes to bat for her clients. She makes the buying/selling process go so smoothly. Hard working, responsive, knowledgeable, compassionate - the best. We would highly recommend her!
  • Buyer

    Dana is really the best. Finding the perfect house was not easy, but Dana was so professional, knowledgeable, and easy to get ahold of. She answered all questions we had, is straight to the point/no nonsense, and has a sense of humor. I felt like we could really relax during the process, knowing that Dana would take care of everything for us. She really knows what she's doing and will work hard with you to find your dream home.
  • Seller

    You turned the sale of our house into a great experience. We had hoped for an easy and fast sale, and you delivered - however in a fashion and style beyond our wildest imagination.
  • Buyer

    We had a wonderful experience with Dana! When we started looking for our first home, we knew almost nothing about the process, but Dana made it so easy. She walked us through every step of the way, helping us figure out the best way to go and helping us feel confident about our decisions. I remember many long phone calls about different properties and I really appreciated Dana's time, patience, and expertise. She was also so helpful in pushing our lender along to meet their deadlines and handling all the nitty gritty details along the way. It really felt like she understood our needs and wants, and made our experience positive and fun. I highly recommend Dana to others and will definitely work with her again if the opportunity arises!
  • Buyer & Seller

    Dana did an absolutely wonderful job. I can’t imagine getting better service from anyone else; we’re so thankful to her for how smooth and enjoyable BOTH our selling and buying experiences were.
  • Buyer

    Dana Reedy assisted us in our house search in 2014-2015, and represented us in our home purchase in 2015. From our initial meeting, until the final day of closing and beyond, Dana has been amazing. She is extremely knowledgeable, diligent, and hard working. She is an excellent communicator and was there for us every step of the way. She made a stressful process way more enjoyable. To add to the stress, I was pregnant at the time putting extra pressure on our need to find the perfect house. I thank my lucky stars we had Dana as our agent - I don't know what we would have done without her. I highly recommend Dana for all of your real estate needs!
  • Buyer & Seller

    Dana is a local market expert with extensive experience and connections. She knows all the tricks, pitfalls, missteps, and nuances in the real estate industry. Her legal background gave me added comfort that I was protected and represented by a true professional.
  • Buyer

    We are so grateful that Dana served as our realtor. Every step of the way Dana was there to help us feel confident in our decisions. She educated us on the real estate market, answered our questions, walked us through the process, and regularly provided insightful advice that was critical to our understanding of buying our home. If you are looking for a real estate agent that takes the time to know her clients and actually knows the real estate market, then Dana is the agent you want to work with. She is a true professional who acts with integrity and compassion. Thank you Dana!
  • Buyer

    Dana is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in the East Bay. She was a great agent to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to others. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are being taken care of and truly makes being a home buyer an exciting and seamless process. She was available at all times of the day/night. She is very detail oriented, tough negotiator, responsive, thorough and just flat out easy to work with.
  • Buyer

    I had no idea how hard real estate agents worked until this experience. I can’t say enough good things about Dana, the woman who doesn’t rest! She was on top of every issue large or small the instant it came up. I really felt like she had my back the whole way through. Dana is responsive, prompt, proactive, manages expectations and is super informative. I know she is busy but she managed to make me feel like I was her only client.
  • Buyer

    Dana was great to work with. Buying a house can be so stressful especially your first house. Dana walked us through step by step, explaining all the ins and outs. She was always available to chat when I felt anxious and gave amazing advice! I would recommend Dana hands down. Her experience and knowledge led us in the right direction to the purchase of an amazing first home. And we will use her for any purchases in the future!
  • Buyer

    Moving from the city to the burbs can be scary. Dana made the whole process easy and took time to show us around and give us the real low down in the area. You know you're in good hands when your very first and only bid gets accepted. She is so thorough and no rock is left unturned. I definitely recommend her to anyone that wants to be 100% sure they are getting exactly what they want. She also understands that everyone will find their dream home, it just takes time sometimes.
  • Buyer

    Dana went above and beyond as our realtor. She was there every step of the way through the whole process of buying a home from searching for the right property to closing. She was extremely honest, straight forward and to the point which I appreciate. I would recommend her to anyone and have the utmost confidence that they would love working with her as much as my husband and I did.
  • Buyer

    I'm so glad our friends recommended Dana to us, and we will definitely pass along the recommendation to others.
