She works tirelessly to find you the right home. She does her homework and makes sure you walk into your purchase or sale with eyes wide open. She is extremely flexible and generous with her time. I wouldn't consider using another agent with Dana in the business."
Since my husband and I had very different expectations when it came to purchasing a home, our search was very frustrating. Dana showed us over 50 + homes and never once did she rush us or push us into a contract. Dana remained extremely patient, professional and always greeted us with a smile. Dana’s reassuring demeanor and positive attitude made it comforting for us to continue the search of our dream home. Once we found our dream home, Dana continued to demonstrate her knowledge of the industry by providing us the comparative market analysis of the area and giving us advice on the true property value. Instead of presenting an immediate offer, she negotiated and renegotiated going above and beyond to get us the best deal which resulted in a sold price $27,500 under list. We are forever grateful! Thank you, Dana."
Over the course of the Spring we casually began to discuss my desire to buy a property in D.C. last spring and sort of what I was looking for. As summer approached I was really under the gun to move out of my apartment, having given a notice to vacate, and I called up Dana to discuss working with her. We discussed my parameters for finding a place. As a Veteran I was entitled to certain benefits that made it, on the one hand, easier to purchase my dream condo with little down payment, but on the other hand, a VA loan is more difficult because Washington D.C. just doesn’t have a huge inventory of VA approved places on the market. Well into summer Dana and I began searching and we spent at least two days a week for over two months looking at place after place, based on a wish list as well as realistic expectations that came into focus the more we looked at properties. Dana always let me drive the process and always was non-judgmental, if I liked or didn’t like something; but she also always pointed out what the trade-offs were and what would place us in the best position during negotiations. She was a fierce negotiator and in the end, we finally found a place that fit almost all of my criteria and she fought hard to get me the best possible bargain. In early September, after settlement, I was proud to got the place under market value and today I am pleasantly content in my new Cathedral Heights location. I highly recommend Dana, she is truly great to work with and you will never feel any pressure but you will feel as if a true advocate has your back through the whole process!
But with Dana Cloud's professionalism and knowledge of the industry made my home buying experience exciting and everything went smoothly. Dana is very thorough and willing to work within your schedule throughout the entire process. I highly recommend her."
Having bought and sold several houses in North VA over the years, I had worked with other real estate agents, so this was not a new experience for me. I thought I was accustomed to the process and knew what to expect. However, Dana far exceeded all expectations and surpassed any previous realtor experience of mine. I was relocating back from overseas and it quickly became evident that Dana's expertise as a Military Relocation Specialist would be particularly invaluable. She kept me updated and fed with local listings long before I arrived back here. She was also extremely accommodating to my unique travel situation, timing, preferred area, and even some special housing needs related to my beloved dog. Upon meeting her, Dana was exceptionally professional, friendly, and could not have been more flexible with her schedule. She was available at any time to look at houses, make adjustments to our search, and ultimately helped me find the house I needed in relatively little time at the price I wanted. Lastly, she helped me navigate through many of the particular features regarding Vet Affairs (VA) loans. Thanks to Dana, I had the best house hunting experience of my life and plan to use her services again. I can only say positive things about her and would never hesitate to recommend her. At closing, Dana even finalized the experience by giving my dog a new bone and bed -- the perfect additions to our new house!"
