J. G.
What My Clients Say
We looked for a real estate agent for months and interviewed several. We chose Dana because of her experience and track record and because we connected with her honest and straightforward manner and sparkling sense of humor (gotta have humor if you’re selling your house!) Dana is the consummate professional. From start to finish, we felt cared for and guided by great advice, insight and feedback. When t...

L.T.
What My Clients Say
If you need to sell your home, there’s only one person to call – Dana Cataldi. We sold our home (in the middle of a pandemic) in three days, a bidding war that produced 6 offers over asking, and an all-cash buyer 100k over asking!! Dana is the consummate professional, but at the same time, is your friend,, industry guide and counselor, and has the ability to keep things in perspective when the tension ri...

Jared H.
What My Clients Say
Dana and her team are a dream come true. I recently sold my home and Dana and the team were there with me every step of the way. Beyond the closing and selling of my house they spent countless tireless hours helping me and my family find a great new rental that we are super excited about. Dana and her team are truly the greatest partners anyone could ask for to help you through the stressful, exciting an...

Jeannine C.
What My Clients Say
The process of buying a house (especially in Los Angeles) is far more complicated and competitive than my husband and I expected. We couldn’t have found and secured our house without Dana and her team. They are not only knowledgeable but kind, fun and extremely patient. Thank you for all of your help in finding our “grow old together” home.

Amy V.
What My Clients Say
Dana is the absolute best. She helped us find the right place for us when we knew very little about LA, helped us navigate a cross country home purchase and move and has been a constant friend and support since we moved. She really cares about her clients and knows how to get things done!

— Amy V.

Krystle B.
What My Clients Say
Dana and her team lead us through the grueling process of buying our first home. Our transaction wasn’t one of the biggest, but Dana still gave us as much attention, and treated our requests and questions with as much urgency and importance as we imagined she would for her clients purchasing more expensive properties. Dana went above and beyond her role as buyers’ agent, all of the times she talked us th...

Susan H.H.
What My Clients Say
When I first met Dana at an open house, I was impressed by her competence, energy and attention to detail; she stood out compared to all other agents I have met until that moment, and I decided to leverage her expertise to find a house. Dana has the perfect team and exceeded each one of my very high expectations: Dana has truly raised the bar in terms of responsiveness, technical support for the many que...

Kevin & Natasha L.
What My Clients Say
Dana and her team were a dream to work with! They expertly navigated us through the simultaneous purchase of our new house and the sale of our townhome without a single detail falling through the cracks. Dana worked tirelessly to make the whole process easy and worry-free. Between her and her team, we had an advocate present for every appointment with the multitude of vendors, inspectors, agents and buye...

Kathy C.
What My Clients Say
Dana and her team are top notch. Dana is personable, professional and very thorough. She helped us narrow our housing search areas, talked to us about realistic options based on our budget and the Compass platform is easy to navigate. In the end, Navin from her team found us the perfect house off market and it was a smooth process. She guided us through the inspection and escrow, helped us negotiate with...

Ulrika A.
What My Clients Say
I loved to yet again use Dana Cataldi as my agent – this time to help me sell my home. Dana and her team worked smoothly and accommodated all my wishes during restricted Covid-protocol and limited showings. Dana is professional, effective, energetic, and she always checks in when you need her – all with a great sense of humor and care. We are beyond grateful to Dana and her team for helping us start th...

Betsy Z.
What My Clients Say
I met Dana on our daughters’ first day of kindergarten. (Those daughters just completed their first year of college!) As we talked during class trips, birthday parties and drop-off and pick-up, I was always impressed by her positive energy, attention to detail and calm spirit amidst chaos. When I moved east, I rented out my Santa Monica townhouse. Periodically, Dana would ask if I was thinking of sellin...

Krystle B.
What My Clients Say
This is the second time we’ve worked with Dana and she was just as amazing this time as last time. She made the sale of our home as easy as possible and alleviated our stress when we encountered some obstacles along the way.

What My Clients Say
Dana was completely on top of every detail. She went far and above the call of duty, not to mention, always pleasant and professional to work with. Even though she was not receiving much of a commission (rental) she treated us as with the diligence they would treat any other client. She reviewed all possible tenants and I trusted her assessments. I can’t recommend her more highly for all your real estate...

Wolf & Antonia
What My Clients Say
An unexpected job opportunity overseas prompted us to consider the possibility of selling our beautiful home. We set out to look for a professional Realtor® who was confident, able to listen to our needs and was an expert communicator. Dana is all of that and more. From our first meeting we knew she was the best agent for the job. She gave us valuable insights into the LA market and helped us quickly mak...

Seller
What My Clients Say
I truly believe that we could not have sold our condominium without Dana. She stuck with us through a flood in the unit and escrows that fell out. In the end however, she got us top dollar and made our lives so much easier by going above and beyond what a normal agent would do. I have never come across such a dedicated agent and can not recommend her highly enough.

— Seller

Buyer
What My Clients Say
Dana was nothing short of amazing in guiding us through the purchase of our first home. We looked to her and trusted her insight and judgment throughout the entire process. We could reach her anytime, and she and her team kept us in the loop on every critical detail in a prompt and friendly manner. Dana was outstanding in the negotiating process to help us get the best value without sacrificing the items...

The responsiveness, organization, and conscientiousness of Dana and her team have set such a high standard and bar that we are now disappointed by anyone who does less (so everyone)

Seller
What My Clients Say
Dana walked closely with us every step of the way through not just the sale of our Santa Monica home but also through what was at times an emotional transition for us. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and personalized care made the whole process incredibly smooth and we are so very grateful. This is our second time working with Dana and we love working with her. We can’t recommend the Dana Catal...

Dana Cataldi and her group were extremely professional and proficient in handling the sale of our condo. We highly recommend them!

Buyer
What My Clients Say
Dana Cataldi is phenomenal at what she does. It took 6 years of persistence, but she finally got us the house we wanted. When it came time to sell our house, she was meticulous; counseled expertly; and got us everything we asked for. She handled inspections and every detail of the close. Our house sold well above asking with multiple offers.

Buyer
What My Clients Say
Moving across the country with a toddler is a daunting prospect, but Dana was instrumental in making it possible and exciting. She helped us find a dream house within our budget on our limited schedule and has enthusiastically guided us through each step in the process. She is so welcoming and has so many connections, it makes moving to LA feel more like moving to a small town.

— Buyer

Seller
What My Clients Say
After 35 years in our home, we made the difficult decision to move. Fortunately, we selected Dana Cataldi as our real estate agent. That was an easy decision. Dana and her team have been absolutely terrific. She made everything easy for us. She is a consummate professional. Dana made sure we knew every step of the process and she went above and beyond all our expectations

Dana, thank you so much for getting us through the grueling process of buying our first home! We know that our transaction wasn’t one of your biggest, but you still gave us as much attention, and treated our requests and questions with as much urgency and importance as we imagine you would for your clients purchasing more expensive properties.

What My Clients Say
What can be said ? Undoubtedly I am perhaps the most difficult client to please but lo and behold Dana and team did the most phenomenal job. They broke the neighborhood price barrier and got a million more than the two major neighborhood brokers I interviewed said I would fetch. I opted for Dana because she was out of the area and I needed someone with a fresh perspective and new visions. Her ability to ...

Buyer & Seller
What My Clients Say
I have been involved in close to a dozen brokered real estate buy, sell and lease transactions. Dana and her team are the best that I have ever encountered by a wide margin. The reason is simple. They treated my house as if it were there. All I had to do in the entire process was to point and click my signature. Their charm, exuberance and tireless effort were a bonus to the professional performance well...

Buyer
What My Clients Say
Dana helped us navigate the purchase of a new home for our parents who had very specific criteria as far as exact location and open, single level space. Her unparalleled expertise, remarkable knowledge and constant communication put us completely at ease and made her a pleasure to work with. They really don’t come any better than Dana.

Working with Dana is like a breath of fresh air. She is honest, efficient, straightforward and smart. She has a “can do/will do attitude”. Dana can conquer any challenge with grace and success

Seller
What My Clients Say
From our first email to the “sold” sign, Dana was an absolute pleasure to work with. Experienced, savvy, and empathetic when we needed it, she eased us through the selling process. Even when we had to negotiate part of the deal from overseas, she was as cool as a cucumber and handled it with grace and efficiency. She has seen it all and understands the view from 30,000 feet…at the same time, she’s detail...
