That " About Me " heading really adds some pressure, doesn't it? Okay let's see, how do I write about how fabulous I am at selling houses without sounding like I'm super full of myself?
I became a realtor in January of 2005 on the advice of a friend (actually, we were flying to Italy, and she had many many many hours to convince me that I should give real estate a shot. I was a captive audience, she was in the seat next to me on the plane.)
I studied the real estate books, took my real estate principals test online, then took my state test and passed.
My first broker, wasn't really sure what to do with me, so he sent me out in to the wilds (Roseville) to do an open house. I had four transactions as a result of that open house
and my career has never really slowed down (well, except when I ruptured my achilles tendon
a few years back and had to have surgery, but I still showed houses on crutches!)
I continued to progressively surpass the production (both in units sold and in volume of sales dollars) of each of my previous years in real estate. I'm not just good at this, I'm fantastic at it. (My production puts me in the top 5% of agents in Sacramento, El Dorado and Placer counties.)
I'm forward thinking, technologically savvy, a little bit unorthodox, diplomatic, one heck of a negotiator, a skilled problem solver, empathic, extremely ethical, and I treat every transaction as if it were my own.
I'm an exceptional realtor. And I'd want me to represent me if I wasn't me!
Dana was wonderful to work with on all levels... Smart, patient and kind are some words to describe her and how she treats her clients. She has a lot of local knowledge and helped us through a tricky home buying process (as I suppose they all are). I highly recommend working with Dana! We love our new home!user20921416 (Zillow Review)
Dana helped us through the process of buying a home in a new place. She responded very quickly and made sure to get extra information when we needed it. Overall, very helpful and a great job.snorton11 (Zillow Review)
Dana was the perfect realtor for our first home purchase. She answered our questions, offered expertise on topics we hadn't considered, presented neighborhoods we weren't familiar with, she's patient, she's responsive, and fun to be around. She also asked us questions that helped us define our target. We explored multiple cities and looked at nearly 100 homes over four months. We made offers, participated on bidding situations, negotiated terms, and ultimately purchased the perfect home for our family. Her solid team of colleagues are quick to help support her clients from urgent tours on hot properties, through transaction contacts, to inspections, all the way through the closing process. Thank you Dana, expect an invite to celebrate our purchase once we're settled.user4177307 (Zillow Review)
Dana is the best realtor one could ever ask for. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to get things done quick. She is extremely responsive and is very honest and genuine. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a phenomenal realtor. She is also very kind and sweet yet know how to navigate her way through situations to handle them in a very professional and experienced way.Thomas f Crawford (Zillow Review)
My son and I really enjoyed working with Dana, she was very helpful, knowledgeable, patient and pleasant to work with. We would definitely use her again.davislbd63 (Zillow Review)
Dana is simply fabulous. I cannot image executing our transaction with any other realtor and whenever I buy property in California, Dana will be our realtor. Our transaction was lengthy and at times, we thought wasn't going to happen. But Dana help kept us going, advising us with credible information every step of the way. After the transaction, we had an issue with house and Dana (again) was there, getting us insurance information. I highly recommend her.Nadine reid (Zillow Review)
There are not enough words to describe how thankful I am to Dana for helping me find a home all while my husband was overseas. She was patient, understanding, available and extremely helpful. After looking at a bajillion homes, we finally found the perfect home for my growing family. I am forever grateful for all her help.KimBarron1 (Zillow Review)
Dana is extremely knowledgeable not only about real estate but the greater Sacramento area as well. She made finding our home fun, and easy. She is beyond flexible with busy schedules and always made time to answer our questions no matter how busy she is. When helping us find our home she got us things we didn't even know we needed, which is truly amazing! I highly recommend this gem because she is the definition of a professional, and to be quite honest, you would be lucky to work with her!angelicakirk (Zillow Review)
Dana Miller is in my opinion, the best Real Estate Agent in Sacramento! She exceeded my already confident expectations of her in selling my home. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again to meet all of my Real Estate needs both as a Seller and as a Buyer! You rock Dana!user3427403 (Zillow Review)
I would highly recommended Dana. After trying for over 14 months and 3 agents we finally found Dana and so glad we did. She thinks out side the box and that is what we needed. She listed our home and we had an offer in 6 days. She was very patient with the million questions we kept asking and kept us informed every step of the process.Kenny & Sherrie Skutley (Zillow Review)
Dana Miller is an outstanding real estate agent and everyone should be as lucky as I was to find her to buy or sell a home. She is a "hands on" agent, attentive, tenacious and an overall nice person. She cares about her customers, monitors the sale and made me feel like I was her #1 client. I totally forgot that she had other clients, sales and buyers to be concerned about, she worked non-stop, day and night to sell my house and to communicate with me at every step. Dana is detail oriented, honest and most of all she cares about her clients. A hundred issues came up that could have stopped the sale of my home and Dana countered every situation with a resolution. I don't believe you can find a nicer, attentive and more professional real estate agent in the Sacramento area. Dana is #1 and totally fabulous to work with.jkblues (Zillow Review)
Working with Dana has been a wonderful experience. She helped us through the process of selling our first home. She was always professional and available for any questions we had throughout the process. She even made herself available while on her honeymoon (not that I asked her to be). She knows the market and was able to sell our home for even more than I thought it was worth. Dana is always upbeat and has a positive attitude. I would highly recommend Dana to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.Keith Uppermann (Zillow Review)
We met Dana through Estatley approx a year and a half ago, and started slow by receiving the daily MLS listings from her. The interest and seriousness of the hunt grew slowly, over the year and a half period. Dana was incredibly helpful, and patient with us, as my wife and my idea of "dream home" couldn't have been farther apart. She showed us countless homes near, and as far as an hour away down dirt roads without blinking an eye. She took the time to be prepared with pertinent information regarding the homes we were looking at, and you could tell she was tuned into both of our individual wants and needs (not easy). There really isn't enough I can say about her attentiveness, responsiveness, process expertise, and all around awesome! She is a rock star, and we are so happy she was on our side! One of the most challenging transactions we have been through (buying and selling simultaneously), and she made it seem effortless. We will use her for every Real Estate transaction we are involved in, if she’ll have us : ).David Bennett (Zillow Review)
I could not have worked with a better agent than Dana Miller. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional and responsive. We found my home and exactly what I was looking for in a month's time. It was really a relief for me, as I am particular and during the time frame that I was looking there was not alot of inventory. She was able to close my deal , even though I had a few obstacles to overcome. I really liked the fact that she was very upbeat throughout the whole process! I highly recommend her.ccitaly (Zillow Review)
We recently had the pleasure of having Dana as our real estate agent. She was easy to work with. She was always available to us, especially with the hectic schedules me and my wife had. She made the process of buying a home a lot easier than we had ever imagined. We will def look for her services again if we are ever in the market to buy/sell a home. But for now we are going to sit back and enjoy the American Dream, thanks Dana for all your help.benz916 (Zillow Review)
As someone who used to work in the real estate world, I've regularly interacted with dozens of agents. Finding Dana Miller through a referral and using her for both the sale of my old home and the purchase of my new one was possibly the best experience I could have had! Her patience, her tenacity, and her hard work paid off in helping us get our dream home AND in selling my home sold in 4 days for ABOVE asking price. Dana always answered my million texts and emails, and was upbeat and knowledgeable even when things were stressful for us. I would use her for ANY future transaction and have already referred her on to others.inger lash (Zillow Review)
How do you tell us how wonderful you are? Don't. Let us. We met Dana when we were trying to buy a house for our family. We couldn't find exactly what we wanted. A few months later, we decided to del our Condo. Dana was our only choice. She has local knowledge. She is experienced in knowing how to help those in need of service. She took our listing and handled everything with Professional knowledge and confidence. I would and will refer anyone I know to her because I know she will take care of them. I have gotten to know a really talented and personable realtor in Dana. I would be proud to have her as a neighbor. Good luck in your future in all you do. You've made ours better just by knowing you. We cannot say Thank you enough.edkemper51 (Zillow Review)
Dana is the perfect agent for today's market, using technology to its fullest! Her wit and empathy will calm your nerves. If you need her, she is easy to find...I heard from her even when she was out of the country. I especially appreciated her pulling out every stop to sell my home quickly. And, you'll find no agent who places more "open house" signs than Dana does, leading potential homebuyers to YOUR home! I completely recommend Dana. Dana also found my family our perfect "new beginnings" home. She helped me determine my wish list & I am very happy to be preparing for our first Christmas in our beautiful, cozy new place. Thank you Dana!jacquelinembarthel (Zillow Review)
I interviewed three real estate agents and selected Dana right away. She was very pleasant and efficient and was communicative throughout the whole process. Dana is an expert in her field and has very strong work ethics. I respect her honesty and sincerity and highly recommend her to anyone as a real estate agent.cindy-hensley (Zillow Review)
Dana Miller assisted us with the purchase of a property last year and the sale of our home this year. We would defintely want her on our team for any real estate transactions in the future. She is very knowlegeable, honest, has the patience of a saint, and strongly supports her clientele. In addition, she is a fun person who made a stressful situation so much better. We gladly give her our highest recommendation. Thanks Dana!cyherzog (Zillow Review)
I happened onto Dana through a friends recommendation after working with an agent that just wasn't up to par. Dana was very responsive and knowledgeable and easy to work with. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great agent.bmccloud83 (Zillow Review)
I would give her 5 stars on all but I have not seen her negotiate. I was fortunate to buy my home during a time where prices were already rock bottom. From what I have been told she is highly skilled and knowledgeable from the half dozen referrals that have sold or purchased through her, To quote them directly, "She is amazing. The difference... It's like night and day'" when they compare her to their previous agents/brokers that just couldn't get the job done right. She is very sharp at sensing your needs and what you are looking for. Will tell you directly if there are hidden agendas and fees from other sellers and is very honest. I recommend her above all others!!rbrann (Zillow Review)
Dana is one of the best agents that you could find. Dana helped us buy our very first home. We didn't know very much on the whole reality thing, but the more time we spent with Dana we learned so much. Not only did she take the time to show us over a 100 + homes she explained everything step by step as to what was happening and what was going to happen. Dana took the time to show us homes whenever we would find a sign we called her and by the end of that day or early the next she had information for us. She knows her stuff like nobody else. Dana never gave up on us and we her, we finally found our diamond and we couldn't be happier. Dana made the whole experience an enjoyable and fun. Not only was Dana a great agent she became a great family friend. I have recommended her our close friends who have purchased a home from her as well. Thank you Dana you are the best!!!!denisewild13 (Zillow Review)
Dana was chosen by chance, and turned out to be a wonderful person to work with while searching for/buying a home to be used as a rental. She was extremely knowledgeable regarding the entire area, as it related to homes for sale, and the types of neighborhoods where they were located. Once the sale started, her experience regarding inspections and closing the sale was second to none. She is highly recommended by my wife and I.Kenrohde (Zillow Review)
Dana has helped me buy 2 and sell one home. She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and hard working. Her honesty and integrity is second to none. She has a very positive attitude and personality. We LOVE DANA!!Mostq (Zillow Review)
Dana is a very energetic, dynamic person and is always working (even while on vacation). She will get the job done, doing it correctly with enthusiasm and constantly keeping you informed of what is happening. Her knowledge and experience of the market is outstanding. She will give you an honest and straight forward opinion. Listen to her! We can not recommend her highly enough. She is also a great person and we are glad we were recommended her by a friend. She is one of the best in our opinion!Gregory_hnath (Zillow Review)
Dana is the shiznit! If you are looking for a professional who will be straight with you, with industry knowledge and experience, and the best attitude of anyone you will find anywhere, check out Dana. She has wonderful contacts, and will treat you with the respect and attentiveness that your situation demands. Good luck on your buying and selling endeavors!Dperez (Zillow Review)
Let me start by saying Dana is the best!! I was a first time home buyer that was having a horrible experience with an agent a friend of mine said to use. Right before I was about to give up on the whole process and just stay renting, another friend asked me to give Dana a call. I called her and told her my situation and we looked at and put an offer in on a house that night!!! I told her exactly what we wanted and what price range and that is what she found us. She took all of the stress off of buying our first home that it was enjoyable, and were so happy. When our family got bigger we decided to sell our house and find something bigger, but 500 miles away in Southern California, so I called Dana up again and she came out the next day. Since we were first time sellers we had no clue how to do that either, and again, she made the whole thing seamless. She was on top of all the documents and the whole process keeping me informed with multiple calls per week. She even helped us find a realtor down here and we bought our dream home! All I can say is that I have never had such a great experience both buying, and selling a home, which everyone knows can be stressful and scary. I tell all my friends and family that are looking to use her, which in fact my close friend used her after having the same experience I did and he bought his dream home too. Dana made buying and selling our house fun, and helped us find the perfect house. If you want a great experience call her...Terry (Zillow Review)
Let me just start by saying, Dana is a saint. She is possibly the most patient, diplomatic, personable, and hard-working person I have ever met. My husband and I insisted on using our bank, Chase, for our loan financing, and our loan officer was very unprofessional. Dana was forced to constantly hold the loan officer's hand, and often our loan officer would go days without responding to Dana's calls. Despite all this, Dana still stuck with us. She did not stop until she handed us the keys to our dream house. Frankly, she deserves a medal, but I suppose my imperfect review will have to suffice. Before we found Dana, we had a different real estate agent who made me look through the listings myself, and would leave us waiting for days to go view houses. Which, of course, meant that they had already gone under contract by the time we got to see them --IF-- he could be bothered to go see them at all. I had become physically ill from the stress of trying to act as my own real estate agent without any real help. After that nightmare, Dana's attentiveness and dedication were a refreshing breath of fresh air! I called the service that recommended her to me in desperation, and it was the best decision I ever made! If you are looking for a real estate agent in Sacramento or the surrounding area, you would be foolish to go with anyone else. :)Kirsten Dickson-Greenway (Zillow Review)
We were with another agent when we started looking for a house, but said agent has not done anything at all. We searched online and talked to few agents when faith intervened and lead us to Dana. I was so impressed with her because she already lined up properties for me to see and went to a few of them the first time we met! I was getting frustrated because of the properties that was available does not meet our criteria, it's either too old, too expensive or too far. After a couple of days we found a property that I fell in love with. The house was a dream. There were 5 bids but Dana fought so hard with us to win the bid. We encountered some issues and tears were shed but she was calm and ready for any problems that we encountered. She was quick to answer email/calls, extremely knowledgable in her field, and she moved "mountains" for us. SHE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND as our realtor. Thank you Dana for helping us get our DREAM....Gemma (Zillow Review)
In 2012, Dana was our agent for the purchase and the sale of the same house, all within a seven-month period. She made sure we got into our dream home, at a great price, with minimum hassle (even though it was bank-owned). Seven months later, we were faced with a job layoff. We feared the worst, knowing that the recession was still going strong, and we worried that we might end up in a foreclosure situation. Dana made sure that didn't happen...not only selling the home for us, quickly, but actually getting us a profit! Dana was ALWAYS available for our texts or phone calls, was extremely knowledgeable and was definitely open to our input; a true team worker. Her expertise and knowledge were above and beyond any other real estate agent we have ever worked with, and we would HIGHLY recommend her!!Graycons (Zillow Review)
Dana is a rock star realtor! She helped me navigate through the shortsale process and turned an otherwise complicated transaction into a streamline process. We had a few hurdles with some of the buyers falling out but I am stilled impressed to this day how she quickly lined up new willing and able buyers... seriously impressive! Her communicatiom was top notch.. no beating around the bush or smoke and mirrors. She gets to the point and handles business. I feel very comfortable referring her to my friends and family.Luis S. (Zillow Review)
Wow, where do I start? My wife and I are first time home buyers, using the VA loan. Honestly, I did not know how difficult the VA loan process is - and how sellers often don't want to deal with its restrictive nature. Fortunately we had Dana, and her negotiation and communication skills alleviated any doubts that the sellers had. Dana was great on so many levels. She is friendly, personable, and smart. Dana's sense of humor made us feel as if she were an old friend. She took the time to know us, and understand are needs and dislikes. I can honestly say that there was not a point before, during, and after escrow that we were not well informed. She even gave surprisingly accurate predictions! Now that the dust has settled, my family has our dream home - and honestly, I am bewildered by the smoothness and ease through which Dana Guided us.Chuck Hutcheson (Facebook Review)
Dana is the utmost professional. She always made us her priority, regardless of the numbers. She's transparent, honest, and always on the grind. Every second. She was available anytime, any day. She sold our house over list price after many difficult challenges that came up with inspections, appraisals and finances. She kept us informed every step of the way, even when the news was not positive. We chose Dana after buying a house she was selling. We had her sell our home after buying the new one, because we were SO impressed with her professionalism! She always keeps her clients interest at heart, and doesn't back down from bully real estate agents. She's a real estate beast and knows her stuff! We would have lost thousands of dollars if it weren't for her expertise and guidance during our home sale. Our house went pending with over 8 offers in the first week, over list price. Her marketing skills, professional stagers and high quality videos stand out above other agents for sure! You definitely can see the value in using Dana when buying or selling a home! We've done both and couldn't recommend her more. She was always available, even just to "talk things out" when we were really frustrated. After previously dealing with realtors who dropped the ball, failed to communicate details to us and failed to keep their out interest a priority, Dana was a life saver! I would use her again. EVERYTIME. Feel free to message me with any questions. I'm confident Dana will get the job done and leave you feeling happy afterwards! Her yelp reviews are proof of that!! Thanks Dana! You Rock!Desiree, Garrett and Zion (Baby) Peterson (Facebook Review)
We have used Dana for three real estate transactions over the past eight years. I cannot say enough good things about her! Dana is a consummate professional. She knows her job and she is truly outstanding at it. Real estate transactions can be difficult arduous processes. Dana's knowledge and experience allow her to provide the very best service to her clients; this is critical in a situation where other professionals' incompetence can potentially lead to ruin. Dana is there to double and triple check that everything is done properly. Her professional integrity dictates that, when asked, the guidance she provides is what she would do herself. In the process of working with Dana, she has many times given us advice that went against her own interest (meaning she would make less money off a transaction or would have to refer potentially more lucrative clients elsewhere.) Sometimes we didn't even realize this was the case until talking with other agents after the fact. Dana can always be relied upon to put her clients' interests first.Kathy G.

Dana Miller is the most amazing Real Estate Agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is extremely helpful, patient, and hard working. She will help you find your dream home, and do whatever she possibly can to make sure it has everything you need. Buying a house can be extremely scary, and having someone as trust worthy and knowledgeable as Dana was truly a blessing. I highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell a house! I promise you will be as happy as we were.Angelica K.
