Dana Wingate has been helping friends buy and sell real estate since 2000. Having investment properties in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, River Village, and several south and western suburbs – she prides herself on finding well priced properties for buyers and helping sellers maximize their home’s value through proper staging and minor fixes.
After 12 years in sales, marketing, and event planning for several Chicagoland country clubs as well as Wrigley Field, she easily transitioned into real estate. “I thoroughly enjoyed planning events, especially being a part of someone’s wedding. It’s a compliment that clients entrust me with one of the biggest events of their life, it provided me with a solid foundation and an easy transition into real estate.”
Dana combines a vast knowledge of real estate with her savvy sales and marketing expertise, creativity, and seemingly endless drive to assist any client in either selling or buying their home. She’ll bring an energy level, enthusiasm, and attention to detail to every transaction from contract to closing. “Its important that my clients feel well represented and they know that I always look out for their best interest. I am honest and hardworking.”
Buying or selling a home can be daunting – but Dana constantly educates herself on the current market trends and walks her clients through every step ensuring a smooth transaction. “Its important that my clients understand that it is my job to educate them on their specific real estate market so that they can make the best decision to fit their needs.”
Besides Dana’s savvy sales and marketing strategies, her true success is her referral base. She has built her business based on listening. “Finding out what’s important to your client and incorporating these items into a wish list AND their budget – its easy for me. I truly enjoy helping others realize their dream – and its especially rewarding when working with first time home buyers.”
In what little free time Dana has, she spends it in true Chicago style – checking out new restaurants and cheering on her teams – the Cubs, Bears, and Bulls!
