Real estate is about knowledge.
“My background in mechanical engineering helps me give my clients a unique perspective on their home.”
My interest in real estate began when I was a child visiting model homes on weekends with my parents. Coupled with my background in energy conservation, I knew I had something unique to offer homebuyers and sellers.
I leave no stone unturned when it comes to buying or selling a home. I empower my clients with knowledge about building materials, waste, and energy conservation. I’m passionate about providing my clients with a unique perspective into the way homes are constructed and consume energy.
Dana holds a B.A.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Ottawa. Prior to joining Rachel Hammer’s team, she worked in energy conservation at a globally recognized firm in building controls and has worked on numerous commercial building greening projects. Dana is a prior member of the Association of Energy Engineers.
Since becoming a Real Estate Broker, Dana has enjoyed every moment working with her clients to ensure they find their perfect home.
Dana is an avid board game fan and is always looking to expand her collection.

We were most surprised with the level of effort, thought and discussion that went into strategizing and consideration of options for selling regarding timing, pricing and support with negotiation. We were amazed when they stepped up to deal with a last minute issue from the inspection in order to keep the sale going.
In moving to a new city, I had to rely on the experience and community knowledge of an unknown realtor. Through a family referral, I was introduced to Dana Palombo. She met all my expectations and more. Her professionalism, knowledge, and friendliness was comforting in a very stressful time.
We loved working with Dana! She made our first time home purchasing experience amazing! She was very knowledgeable and always kept in mind what we wanted. She has a great sense of humor and we really enjoyed looking for our first home with her. She was amazing to work with and we would do it all over again in a heartbeat! Thank you Dana for your expertise!
