The entire Dana Green Team did an exceptional job of helping us sell our home. Throughout the process they were thoughtful, expertly knowledgeable, proactive and responsive in all the right ways — a stellar demonstration of a well-orchestrated team of professionals. The team culture truly shines as they are also fun, kind, generous, and patient helping us with one of the most important things we will ever do!
— Matt and Wendy, Orinda Seller
We are a developer and builder of luxury homes and have listed and sold two new homes with the Dana Green Team in the past two years. We take special care to ensure our homes achieve the highest standards and demand the same from our subcontractors and professional consultants. Dana and her entire team have consistently met or exceeded our expectations.
Beginning months before we completed construction, Dana masterfully conceived and executed a marketing strategy for our most recent sale of a $6.3 million new home. While Dana is undoubtedly a marketing expert in her own right, she was eager to listen to our input and suggestions and enthusiastically incorporated them into the overall strategy. Additionally, Dana abundantly committed the necessary resources for the marketing effort, from newspaper and magazine advertisements, photography/video, internet to events, no expense was spared.
Beautiful staging is essential in the marketing of any home, but particularly a new home. Linda Gidre, Dana’s lead stager, planned and coordinated the staging with Dana’s close assistance and supervision and the result was among the best we have seen in the marketplace. Dana was even happy to acquire unique or special pieces where it was necessary to achieve the proper look.
It is rare to find an agent with the ability to expertly market, negotiate and manage the closing process. Dana and her team did a terrific job in each of these areas. We found that Dana’s strong communications skill and win-win approach to negotiation correlated closely with our style. Managing the closing process from inspections, to appraisals to contract compliance was very professional. The entire critical negotiation and closing process was done in a conscientious and respectful manner that left both buyer and seller happy.
Overall, Dana and her entire team are extremely professional. Everyone on Dana’s team is skilled, professional and capable of working independently. Our approach to homebuilding is centered around integrity, quality, strong communication and strong management which aligned perfectly with Dana and her team whom we highly recommend!
— Don Clark, Bay Vista Development
"Dana and her entire team are wonderful! Every one of them worked efficiently and professionally to sell my home and the organization and execution of the process was incredible. This often emotional process was easy because of Dana’s expertise and guidance. Dana and her team positioned my home perfectly for the market. I recommend using her suggested vendors throughout the process as she has vetted them through her years in the industry and they all were timely and professional as well. She and her staff made the selling of my home seamless! I have no reservations giving the Dana Green Team my highest recommendation and unequivocal endorsement!"
— Elizabeth Bunker & Brian Griggs, Orinda Seller
"Dana Green and her team did a fabulous job marketing our home at time when few high-end homes were selling, getting us a blizzard of free exposure on the front covers of major publications as well as establishing a considerable online presence. Dana’s expert advice was essential during the purchase negotiations, the inspection process, and renegotiations during escrow. We would not even consider selling a home in Lamorinda without her help."
— Sam & Dana Greason, Happy Valley Seller
"We have worked with Dana and her team on several transactions and they are nothing short of extraordinary. They made an otherwise stressful process manageable and even somewhat enjoyable. We would not have found our dream home without Dana's incredible resources and contacts. I can't imagine trying to buy or sell a home during these crazy times without Dana on our side. You wouldn't ask for the second best doctor for a major surgery, why would you want anything short of the best real estate agent to help navigate the biggest financial commitment of your life?"
— Dankworth Family, Downtown Seller & Buyer
"Dana and her team are an exceptional real estate group! Not only are they incredibly skilled real estate agents, they work with a very talented team, who make purchasing and selling easy. Dana and her team's organization and attention to detail are unparalleled. We are extremely grateful to Dana for the patience and support she provided while helping us find the right property for our family. She has become a valued friend and advisor. She is also a favorite with every member of our family!"
— Connor and Shannon Tierney, Happy Valley Buyer
"Dana is incredibly bright and personable, has an encyclopedic knowledge of Lafayette, and takes the time to really understand what is important to her clients. Moreover, it was clear she had an unmatched knowledge of the market, which proved invaluable in a turbulent real estate market. She also provides a level of customer service beyond anything I have ever seen. At every step of the process, she was responsive, proactive, and creative in helping us address each issue that arose. She has an amazing network of loan brokers, inspectors, contractors, insurance agents, and anyone else a client might need when buying a new house.”
— Elizabeth & Paul Warenski, Burton Valley Buyer
"We would hire the Dana Green Team again in a heartbeat! Dana was professional at all times, extremely detail oriented, and expertly guided us through the sometimes emotional and complicated real estate world... ALWAYS with a smile on her face. With five offers presented on our beautiful new home, we truly feel that we would not be the proud owners without Dana's real estate expertise and excellent reputation in the (Lamorinda) community."
— Jennifer & Bob Buckley, Reliez Valley Buyer & Seller
"Dana represented us when we bought a home in Lafayette and years later one in Orinda. In both cases she and her team were excellent, honest, and moved the process along efficiently. Dana has an intimate knowledge of the Lamorinda area and helped us take the time to research various neighborhoods. She never rushed us and was always very upfront about the pros and cons of every house we considered. She and Sarah are very organized and have excellent working relationships with other agents. We would highly recommend Dana to anyone considering the sale or purchase of a house in the Lamorinda area - we are optimistic that you will be extremely pleased!"
— Dawn & Tom Capp, Burton Valley and Orinda Downs Buyers
“In this tough real estate climate, Dana Green demonstrated tenacity, patience, knowledge and much needed humor throughout the process of selling our home.

— Lisa & Bill Bissell, Happy Valley Seller
"Dana's expertise, local knowledge and professional approach helped us, in an extremely difficult seller's market, to position and sell our home at the right price to the right buyer. More importantly, we became friends in the process."

"Dana is an absolute gem. As the Chief Legal Officer of a corporation, I appreciate the importance of wise, professional and effective advisors. My husband and I recently purchased a home in Lafayette in a highly competitive situation. Dana skillfully and graciously guided us through the process. The quality of her representation far exceeded our expectations. We absolutely adore Dana."
— Judith Hall & Paul Nowak, Downtown Buyer
"I just want to express how impressed I am with you! Your promptness and service to your clients goes above and beyond what any other realtor/realtor team would do. I can't thank you enough for all of your help. Other than passing along your names when the opportunities arise, please let me know if there is anything else I can do to pass along the good word."
— Cheryl & Rob Nolan, Burton Valley Buyer
"Impeccable effort and seamless execution probably best describe your representation as listing agent in the sale of our Lafayette, CA home. Thank you for your outstanding work ethic! Your expert marketing techniques originally got us thinking about and discussing change. The end result was an exceptionally successful real estate transaction and the beginning of a valued friendship."
— Marie & Jeff Gibb, Burton Valley Seller
