Dana was an absolute blessing to us during our buying/selling process. She has basically been our family realtor over the past few years, and she made our home buying and selling process a less stressful experience. We were not overly impressed by the other realtors we came in contact with when trying to buy and sell a home, but Dana was wonderful. She makes you feel like family, and like you are her #1 priority! She helped ease the stress that comes along with selling and then purchasing a home. We would recommend her to anyone!

Dana is an exceptional realtor, she is extremely knowledgeable of the Niceville area and she made my stressful out of state home buying process very easy. Dana kept me well informed during this whole buying process from providing all of the new listings in my desired location, negotiating with the seller and working out all of the details leading up to and through closing.

Dana was an amazing help through our process of purchasing of our new Florida condo. We bought the property site unseen so we really had to trust and rely on Dana for everything and she was on top of it! Very professional and organized and went above and beyond her role to make sure things went smoothly. I highly recommend Dana for all of your Real Estate needs.

Dana helped us find a great vacation home even though we were 1,000 miles away in Kansas. She was always available to answer our questions, evaluate potential opportunities and navigate the home buying experience in FL. Home buying is always a stressful process but Dana helped us stay connected and sale right through to closing day.

My wife and I worked with Dana on a recent home purchase in Niceville. Our experience with her was two fold. First, the overall experience of working with her was very positive - she was respectful of our time, quick to answer questions, and genuinely cared about us and our future home purpose. Second, we felt she was fair, direct and was honest about realistic expectations during the home buying process. If we had to do it all over again, we wouldn't change having the opportunity to work with Dana.

From the very beginning, Dana was very helpful to us as first time home buyers. She searched tirelessly to help us find our perfect “starter home” together as newlyweds. One of the things that impressed us most was her flexibility in working with our schedules for showings, and being available to answer any questions we had. We cannot recommend Dana enough if you are in the market to buy or sell a home!

One word: AWESOME! From our initial meeting, until closing, Dana was right by my side! She guided me, every step of the way, to ensure that I made decisions that would get me the criteria needed for a smooth transition for my new home! She was very patient, yet so dedicated in getting me exactly what I wanted! She let me know that it was all about me, and told me to take my time in finding the home that I wanted! I know that I would not have been able to accomplish the results that I received, had it not been for Dana's diligence! I will, without hesitation, glady, recommend her services to anyone in search of a new home! Thank you so much, Dana Topel, for all your hard work! You're a gem!

Dana always goes above and beyond what is required to help us make our houses even more appealing to the buyers. She has even used her own property to stage rooms. Keeps us informed of any new developments and when every open house is and how it went.

Dana is extremely hard-working and dedicated. This was our first home and she went above and beyond making sure we felt comfortable and informed at every step. She is well versed in the local market and just straight up friendly. She even texted us just to make sure we had home insurance before the storm came through!

Dana was amazing at helping us sell our home. She actually helped us buy it years ago and we were so pleased then that we used her services again. She made the process easy even though we had already moved from the area. I felt she got us a good price, too. Thanks, Dana!

Selling a home, while building a new home, can be a very stressful time. Dana’s knowledge, experience, positive attitude, and calmness has made it a much more enjoyable process for us. Thanks for not only being our realtor, but a friend as well!

Dana was referred to us when we arrived in 2014 and she helped us find a great house. She was very professional and remained very patient with us since we were first time home buyers. She was so awesome we also asked her to help us sell our home only two years later due to unforeseen military transfer orders. I’ve said it before, if you want a realtor who will treat you like family and always put your interests first then Dana is the realtor for you.

I would just like to say that I have been doing business with Ms. Dana Topel for about four years and I/we have been very pleased with her service. Ms. Topel is very educated in the real estate market.
She is very good at keeping me/us informed about the buyers and what our options are. She always returns my phone calls and works very well with the buyer and seller. Ms. Topel has sold several pieces of property for our family and has been very professional and always looked out for our best interest.
If I were to recommend a realtor for selling or buying real estate I would have to recommend Ms. Dana Topel.
