There’s good reason Kirkland’s savvy real estate executive Dana V. Adams continues receiving five-star reviews from her loyal clientele. Dana excels in her field on all levels, from her distinguished “Land to Luxury” knowledge, eternal professionalism, caring attitude, responsiveness, and laser focused attention to detail, to her stellar service and dogged determination.
A Licensed Real Estate Agent in Washington since 1993, Dana has enjoyed a highly successful career helping buyers and sellers of luxury homes in Kirkland, Bellevue and surrounding eastside communities. She excells in her specialty niche, selling in-fill land and development property and marketing the new homes once built. Dana is involved in every step of the building process, from land acquisition, meeting with engineers, city planners, architects, and interior designers, to the sale of the completed new construction.
This southern California native grew up around real estate and commercial fishing. Dana moved to Kirkland with her family at age nine. After high school, she ventured off to work in the fishing industry in Alaska. Realizing that real estate was her calling, Dana joined Windermere when she was twenty-five. Six months into the business, a seasoned and tenacious land and new construction veteran discovered Dana and began mentoring her in all facets of new home development. She is now sought after for her expertise in land acquisition, plat management and marketing strategies, site-agent training, and custom home consulting.
As a 10-year, Five Star Professional award-winning agent, Forbes Magazine recognized Dana for her outstanding sales and service performance. She has further distinguished herself in her field as a Managing Broker, Master Certified New Construction Specialist, Master Certified Negotiation Expert, and member of the National Association of Realtors. A graduate of the University of Washington in 2012, she loves to continually advance, learn and embrace new challenges to ensure the utmost advantages for her clients.
Raising her four sons in the same lakeside town as she grew up has been an incredibly rewarding experience for Dana. She takes pride in watching, cheering and guiding her boys on and off the sports field as they navigate young adulthood. Aside from family, her personal passions include youth mental wellness, teaching a process called Life Mapping that she wrote about in her book called Live Your Gift, taking long walks along the lake, baking, and living a healthy, active lifestyle. Dana also devotes time to her community. She volunteers for the high school business program; DECA, served on the Evergreen Health Youth Mental Health Task Force, wrote monthly feature home articles for Kirkland Living Magazine, organized a 2016 community-wide event on opiate awareness at the Kirkland Performance Center, and has served on the City of Kirkland Task Force Boards for sidewalks and affordable housing.
