BROKER ASSOCIATE, REALTOR®, GRI, MRP
Dana Epstein, an Austinite since 1999, moved to the city to attend the University of Texas at Austin, where she graduated with a Bachelors of Journalism in 2002 and earned a Masters of Public Affairs from the LBJ School in 2006. Like many others, Dana quickly realized Austin was the best city in the country and feels the same way today. She has also lived in several other places, including New Jersey, Connecticut, Oklahoma and Washington, D.C.
Dana most recently spent 13 years in Jewish communal service at Shalom Austin, where she served as the Assistant Executive Director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Austin. Dana was responsible for leading many important initiatives, including various outreach and engagement efforts, creating networking and community service opportunities with many local nonprofits, overseeing multiple volunteer committees, developing leaders and working closely with the Board of Directors. She received Shalom Austin’s first Staff Exemplar Award in 2013 and the Selfless Service Award from Hindu Charities for America in 2015 for her years of collaboration on the Bollywood Meets Borscht Belt fundraising event to provide school supplies for homeless children.
Dana is committed to serving the needs of her clients by finding them a home that meets their needs and helping them feel at home in Austin as soon as possible. She is a great connector and lover of all the things that make Austin such an incredible city.
Buying a home in Austin’s increasingly hot real estate market was made simple for me thanks to Dana’s wealth of knowledge, bulletproof integrity, and attentive communication throughout the entire transaction. Upon meeting, she will immediately take you in and treat you like family. What’s more, she’s an intelligent professional who epitomizes a tenacious work ethic. She’s got grit and will get the job done.
Thank you, Dana, for all your help. You managed to lease my house within days at a price that exceeded my expectations. Look forward to working with you again soon.
“Dana will always make herself available to clients and is generous with her time. She’s very knowledgeable, experienced and diligent. Dana is passionate about helping people find a place to call home.”
“When we were looking for a condo for our college kids, Dana was relentless in helping us find a place in our price range that still met all of our other needs. She suggested all kinds of creative tactics since it was completely a seller’s market at the time; we wrote to condo owners in the area letting them know we are interested in buying their property; we wrote letters of introduction with our offers; and we looked at places along the bus route to find something that would work both in college and after graduating. The last tactic worked! We found a fabulous place in an area that works as a student and as a graduate — and it was less than what we would have had to spend closer to campus. Thankfully, the kids are graduated and now paying their own rent and want to stay put in a place that Dana made sure was suitable for the long term. I highly recommend Dana for buy or selling because she has integrity, she listens, and she works hard for you."
We are celebrating our 1-year anniversary with DANA EPSTEIN and DOCHEN REALTORS! Last March we closed on a fabulous home- thanks to the hard work and loving care we received from Dana. We were out of town buyers and with assistance from our daughter we were taken care of from the start! When Dana began with us, she adeptly guided us in our search for the right neighborhood that suited our family's needs. Dana made sure we were represented beautifully to the sellers. Dana was reassuring and educated us during our inspection. Her attention to details were impeccable. All of this professionalism comes with a kind loving and patient heart… Dana - we are most grateful to you!
