Consistent communication and connection with your agent is a key factor in buying or selling a home. Dana's communication strategies are second to none. She will initiate frequent and productive conversations as you move through the buying and/or selling process.

Dana and Kayla are an amazing team! They are kind, informative, prompt, and trustworthy. My husband and I are first time home buyers, and we could not have been in better hands. We are so thankful for how they walked us through each step. We highly recommend them!

If you need a really great realtor, we’d HIGHLY recommend Dana Stracener Smith. She’s the very best and guided us through this process with humor, knowledge, and enthusiasm! Dana was always reachable and quick to get an answer if she didn’t already have it. We sold our house in 72 hours for $30k more than we bought it for 5 years ago and when we were ready to buy, we looked at one house and said it’s sold. With this being our third home, we know you don’t usually get that lucky to find your dream home on the first try but we did this time! Cannot thank Dana enough for everything she did for us!!
