Hi, my name is Dana Bull and I am a real estate agent, landlord, and investor. I’m obsessed with real estate, and I have a passion for developing roadmaps for first-time buyers and investors in what is otherwise a daunting process.
My goal is to help you gain as much knowledge as possible before you purchase a home. I approach my work with honesty and passion and to me there is nothing more rewarding than instilling confidence in buyers as they enter the real estate market.
For the years I’ve worked as a Boston area real estate agent, I’ve been providing clients with smart strategies for buying or investing in properties. Now, I’m bringing those strategies to a larger audience, coaching first-time buyers and investors regardless of geography.
Here’s how it all started. At age 22, my boyfriend (now husband) and I purchased our first condo. At that time, I knew nothing, and I mean nothing, about contracts to purchase, home inspections, securing a mortgage, or home ownership in general. Having little guidance, we stumbled through the transaction, and made every mistake in the book. There had to be a better way.
These challenges motivated me to learn how to make better and smarter decisions when it comes to buying real estate and handling transactions. I rolled up my sleeves, obtained my real estate license and went on to acquire dozens of rental properties before my 28th birthday. While building my portfolio, I networked tirelessly, and forged relationships with countless attorneys, lenders, and contractors.
After leaving my corporate career in tech marketing to pursue real estate full-time, I carved out a niche working with young buyers, providing coaching, mentorship and buyer agent representation. For me, the most rewarding aspect has always been educating clients on the process and risks and then taking the time to evaluate, analyze and mitigate those risks. My work has been featured across mainstream media including Business Insider, US News & World Report, Huffington Post, and more.
