Arming her clients with knowledge about building materials, waste, and energy conservation is what makes Dana an invaluable resource, whether they’re buying or selling real estate. 

“My interest in real estate began when I was a kid visiting model homes on weekends with my parents. Coupled with my background in green homes, I knew I had something unique to offer homebuyers and sellers. Since becoming a sales representative, I’ve enjoyed every moment working with my clients.” 

Dana brings a fresh and dynamic approach to real estate, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to buying/selling a home.

We had a wonderful experience with rachelhammer.com team, and especially with Dana. Her thorough knowledge of the market and honest recommendations always made us feeling confident that we are in good hands. We are deeply thankful to the whole team for all their help!

• Olga

From step one, Dana instilled a sense of confidence in our decision to look for and purchase a home. Dana is a great agent: her profound knowledge of Ottawa’s real estate market and impeccable professionalism are combined with a great sense of humour, which made our experience looking for a home a lot of fun. From our first meeting, Dana struck us as an honest person, who is there to represent our best interest. We had no doubt that she would always share her opinion when we asked her what she thought about a house itself, an area or our options.

• Olga & Scott

We always felt we were in good hands with Dana; even my husband who is very skeptical and cynical regarding realtors, said he thought she was very good and also appreciated her attention to detail and thoroughness. We would ask for Dana again any time and would recommend her to anyone.

Your Dream Home
It was rather serendipitous finding the Rachel Hammer Team. They were the listing agents on a property I was interested in. From that first contact I had nothing but caring and professional service. Would definitely recommend Rachel Hammer and her team. Christina Colton was excellent.
