Get to Know Me

Building connections is one of the main bedrocks of fostering strong relationships with clients. And for Dana Cruz, her top priority is to build a trusting, candid relationship with her clients well beyond the closing table. Primarily serving Washington D.C, Dana has over 15 years of experience as a premier agent, coupled with a vast network of industry connections, both locally and internationally.

Born in Bombay, India, Dana immigrated to the United States and is a longtime resident of the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. She currently lives in Bethesda with her husband and four children. As an industry leader with many years of experience, Dana began her real estate career in 2004 when she became a full-time real estate agent. Through dedication and extreme tenacity, she became a tour de force in Washington D.C's real estate scene. For over a decade, Dana led the developer's sales efforts in Washington D.C.'s luxury new condominium market. To date, she has sold nearly one billion dollars in high-end real estate sales and written over 600 contracts. When the market shifted, Dana began working with buyers and sellers directly, enjoying the flexibility and freedom working with her new clientele provided. Today, Dana’s mission is to provide her clients with the highest levels of personalized customer service. She accomplishes this by keeping the lines of communication open between her and her clients, from the first meeting to the closing day and beyond. 

Prior to becoming a Realtor®, Dana was a fundraiser and campaign developer for various organizations, including Advocates for Youth and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. She also has an extensive background in public relations. She is also a proud Virginia Tech alumnus. With her dynamic background and unique skill set, Dana uses her connections and years of industry knowledge to help her clients make educated decisions, as they make some of the biggest financial decisions of their lives. By empowering and educating her clients, Dana is able to marry her two greatest passions: advocating for others and selling real estate. 

When she isn't conducting real estate transactions, you can find Dana running, reading, gardening, and spending quality time with her family. Dana, her husband, and their children are actively involved in the community, running in local races, giving back to the community, and volunteering at local animal shelters. They enjoy taking vacations to the beach as a family.
