Dana has lived, worked, and owned properties all over the greater Wilmington area and is well versed in communities from Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender Counties. Now residing in Carolina Beach, Dana enjoys wakeboarding, surfing, fishing, and biking with his wife, son, and dogs.
With a diverse professional background that includes construction, photography, and a 13-year career in film set decorating, Dana brings to the table a series of skills and talents that are unparalleled among his peers, and provide significant and valuable service to his clients.
As the sole member of his department on-set while shooting a film, his superiors could work elsewhere with peace of mind. They trusted Dana and his renowned preparedness, attention to detail, and pride in his work. Dana always honored their vision and best interests, all while maintaining an open line of communication.
He has a deep love for this special place and hated leaving the area to work on location--for that reason, and to spend more time with his young family, he has chosen to pursue his interest in the ever-changing housing market of Southeastern North Carolina.
Dana is knowledgeable about our beautiful coastal area and loves helping people. But most importantly, he sincerely values client trust and will always serve your best interest. In Dana’s capable hands, the process of buying or selling your home can be a most enjoyable one.
When we decided to start our search for a property at the beach Dana contacted us right away after submitting our information online. We were concerned since we had never had a real estate transaction that wasn’t local and didn’t personally know any realtors in the area, however Dana EXCEEDED our expectations! The first property we viewed did not work out (no fault on Dana’s part), however Dana worked diligently to find us the perfect property. We found the perfect property, however it was an hour away from Dana’s location yet he still provided us with excellent service. He is very knowledgeable, very responsive and very easy to deal with! Even after we closed, just before hurricane Flo he checked on us to make sure we were ok and didn’t need anything even though he was also evacuating. He also checked on us afterwards! Thanks to Dana and all of his hard work we now have our perfect home away from home!
As first time home-buyers and not local to the area, my fiance and I had numerous questions, concerns, and hesitations in regards to buying our first home. Fortunately, a friend referred us to speak with Dana who patiently and diligently answered all of our questions and gave us the confidence to move forward throughout the entire home buying process. As a master of contract negotiations, Dana was able to propose and settle on a deal that was great for us and the sellers as well. His attention to detail and knowledge of the Wilmington area and market helped us find our perfect home. We highly recommend Dana to anyone looking to buy or sell a home and look forward to working with him on future opportunities.
We relocated to Wilmington and a friend recommended Dana to us. Dana went above and beyond what we had experienced with previous realtors. Dana found the perfect house for us and negotiated a great price. He followed up on every inspection and every repair. He even found contractors for work in the future. Dana was very thorough in every aspect of our home purchase. Would highly recommend and use again in the future with no hesitation.
