"Dana was an absolute pleasure to work with! She helped me with all the questions & concerns I had with a smile!"- Dr. Amelia H.
"Dana Robbins and her assistant, Jennifer Jordan, are by far the best real estate team we have encountered. Due to a health crisis, my husband and I were suddenly tasked with selling my father’s home in Virginia. Though we live in Massachusetts, Dana was willing to work with us. The home needed many maintenance repairs, was quite outdated, and the yard was overgrown. Dana was enthusiastic and optimistic from the start. She did her research, and backed up all of her recommendations with data. Then, the pandemic hit. In the face of such challenges, we were still able to rely on Dana and her contacts completely. As with all things, Dana’s communication was excellent and her “can do” attitude never failed. We disagreed on how to proceed in some instances, but Dana carefully shared her views, letting us know the decision was ours (in hindsight, Dana was right!). When the house was ready for sale in our eyes, it was already sold; going on the market, it was bought in less than one day. Dana had engaged with interested parties, and the sale yielded more than we expected. Throughout the process, Dana’s expertise, hard work, enthusiasm, and generous spirit were unmatched. Jennifer handled all of the document work patiently and perfectly. Finally, because of the pandemic, we were unaware that some items still needed to be removed from the house after the sale, including a box of old photos, letters, etc. Dana managed the removal, saving the personal box. Jennifer packaged up my dad’s treasures, and sent them off to his assisted living residence. For a team to see each person as an individual deserving of care is extraordinary! My husband and I have worked with 10 different real estate agents throughout our lives. We’ve had many good ones, but Dana and Jennifer at Robbins Nest are an unmatched team!" - Cecilia Rennix
"This was our second home purchase with Dana and Jennifer and our first sale. Always a pleasure! - Charlie Harris & Diane Dincan
"Dana and Jennifer do a great job! Second home purchase with this team." - C.H & D.D
"The whole team was amazing!" - Heelys
"Dana is a treasure! She lights up a room. It's clear she loves her job and we love her."
- Diane Pierce
"When I first realized that Dana was the realtor for the sellers of the house that I really wanted to buy, I was a little concerned. I knew that she COULD handle both sides of the sale but I wasn’t sure how it would work. But, two things convinced me to put in an offer anyway - first, I really loved the house and second, Dana had just shepherded me through selling my previous house, which had been challenging on occasion, so I trusted her.
Once I said that I wanted to put in an offer, Dana was very clear and up front about what she could and could not do in representing both of us. My only real worry was about the negotiations over home inspection repairs because I’ve only ever bought one house before and frankly, I didn’t do a good job the last time! Fortunately, the home inspection went very well and there was only one real repair that needed to be made. But, even though she couldn’t help me decide which repairs to ask for - she still was able to get me the repairs that I wanted. Also, I knew that she would be on top of making sure that all the repairs got done - since she had done such a great job making sure the work on MY old house got done.
Aside from my concerns over making good decisions about the home inspection, it really was so convenient to only have one realtor involved. Communication was so smooth and things just moved along so well. Although some of my family members were skeptical of the situation, I felt very secure about it. After all, it’s just as important to trust the realtor you are buying from as the one you are selling with! There were several houses that I didn’t even bother looking at, once I saw the seller’s realtor. I will never buy another house from the realtor who sold me my last one! On the other hand, I would 100% buy another house with Dana!" - Jessica Mitchell – Buyer 38 Elm Avenue
"As soon as we found out we were moving and needed to sell our home, we did not hesitate to contact Dana Robbins as our preferred Realtor. Aside from her dedication to her clients and her in-depth knowledge of the Hilton neighborhood, we appreciated her philanthropy within the community and her positive attitude. She is clearly a person who genuinely cares about other people.
After working with Dana and her phenomenal team to list our home, she approached us about one of her own clients having an interest in buying. She was upfront about dual representation, what it meant, and how it could affect both parties involved. We admit we were cautious at first because we were first-time sellers, but Dana was wonderful to walk us through the process, answer any questions we had, and did not pressure us at all--we felt supported throughout the entire transaction. We have recommended her to many potential sellers and buyers in the neighborhood, and we would definitely work with her again!" - Rachael and Ryan O’Donnell – Seller 38 Elm
“Choosing Dana as our realtor was the best decision we made while selling our home. I texted Dana on a Friday that we were accepting a job offer in Ohio and would like to get our home listed ASAP. On Tuesday, our home was ready to go live. Dana informed us that she had clients who were interested in a home just like ours and she asked if we would be comfortable with them seeing our home and making an offer. At first, we weren’t really sure how she could represent both parties fairly but we trusted her and agreed. It was our first time selling a home and we were nervous about the process due to our lack of knowledge. This is why finding a realtor who comes highly recommended and has an incredible amount of experience (Dana Robbins) is so important. Dana communicated with us throughout the entire process. She answered every single question we had promptly and provided us with insight on things we hadn’t even thought of. She was also able to recommend services to help us with the selling process as needed. Once our house hit the MLS we had official offers almost immediately. Dana was quick to present us with all of our options and provide insight. Never once did we feel worried or that she wasn’t representing our interest fully. She was incredibly professional throughout the entire process. We ended up going with the offer from clients that Dana was representing because it was the best offer! Not only was it truly the best offer (Dana knows how to negotiate!) but we hoped it would cut out a lot of back and forth and help us close on time. Dana continued to be professional throughout and worked promptly to help us and the new owners close without any delays. We could not have had a better experience. I hope this provides clarity with any concerns one may have with how Dana manages dual representation. Our experience with Dana was amazing! We cannot recommend her enough." - Ryan and Lisa Pasuit

"Dana helped us to buy our home in 2015 and we loved her so much that we didn't even consider calling anyone else when we recently had to sell! She is so connected to the area and always knew what was happening in the market to keep us informed. Dana came through with solid advice and countless reliable referrals at every step of the way. Through her guidance while selling, we received multiple offers on the FIRST DAY then when our initial contract fell through (due to issues on the other party's end) we were under contract again, with an offer above list price, within the FIRST HOUR. You guys, she's the real deal." -Rachel & Jamison
"Dana has been a fantastic real estate agent and helped us tremendously with purchasing our first home. She is patient, thorough, and gives honest advice throughout the whole process. She is very intuitive and knows which home will make her clients happy. I highly recommend Dana! You will be pleased!" - Samera Ahmed
"Dana Robbins was the perfect realtor. Our family was going through a very stressful deployment, a family illness, a career change, and a PCS move and Dana took the pressure off as much as she could with house hunting from out of state. She was readily available and knowledgeable about the ins and outs of purchasing a home. Her expertise, helpfulness, and kindness make her the best! Her assistant Jennifer was top notch as well. She goes above and beyond and is always there to help. They make the perfect duo!"- Christopher Short
"Dana is simply outstanding! She's very knowledgeable and friendly. During the Corona Virus, she ensured to keep me informed and made the process stress free. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase and sell their homes." - Zoraya Gause
"We've used Dana twice to sell our homes. This past time was at the beginning of the pandemic. I was not sure how everything would go but Dana went above and beyond to ensure our house stayed safe and clean during this time. We had multiple offers over the asking price on the first day on the market. Dana knows how to get a deal done. She's professional and knowledgeable about the entire process. Easy to get in touch with and also just a super fun person! Highly recommend Dana! Best realtor around!" - Hilary Wilcox
"We highly recommend Dana. She was great! As first time home buyers, we had many questions about the entire process. She explained every step in a thorough manner and put our nerves at ease. She was easy to communicate with and always kept our best interests in mind. After we bought the house, we planned to do minor updates. She made great recommendations to local vendors, which came in handy since we are not from the area. She is very professional and we would definitely work with her again." - Sonia Esparza
"Dana has sold property for us and helped us purchase homes ranging from $250,000 to 1 million dollars. She is very detail oriented and has great knowledge and communication skills. If you need an excellent realtor I would recommend her highly!" - Malcolm Anglin
"Dana has been my realtor of choice for over five years. She has both sold my home and sold me a home. Dana always exceeds expectations and responds to all questions/concerns immediately. Her supporting team players are equally outstanding (Jennifer). I would recommend her highly to anyone searching for a realtor." - Carla Mingee
"I took a new job out of state and Dana did a great job working on our behalf to sell our home and to represent us. We were always kept in the loop, and she did not hesitate to contact me about anything important to ensure the best outcome for us, including helping enlist contractors who were able to take care of the odds and ends that always need doing at the end of a real estate deal. Dana has a special knowledge of historic Hilton Village and should be your go to when you want to buy or sell in this neighborhood. My only complaint is that she is not licensed in South Carolina to help us find our new home!" - Nicholas Eaton
"Dana made selling my house an absolute breeze! She is very knowledgeable and forthcoming with information. My house was listed on a Friday and was under contract before the weekend was over. She had contacts for everything I needed and made sure that my best interests were served. When the pandemic crisis hit and I wanted to move up the closing, Dana was able to make that happen for me. The process, thanks to Dana and her team, was seamless and I would recommend her to anyone" - Jenni Ferrari
"When we went to list our house in Hilton Village, we interviewed three realtors and listed with Dana because she had far and away the best knowledge of the neighborhood. She had reasonable--but helpful!--notes on what we needed to do before putting it on the market, she knew what colors and patterns are currently popular, and she was able to recommend a handyman to get the work done. We had an offer on a house at listing price after one weekend on the market. We couldn't have been more pleased, and we'd definitely recommend her, and in fact, we already have." - Katie C. Bennett
"Dana and her assistant Jennifer were personable, professional, and quick to respond to any questions we had. We were purchasing a home from out of state and they made sure everything was running smoothly from a distance. We also were searching for a home with 2 toddlers in tow and Dana made sure to include them, which was important to us! I would highly recommend Dana Robbins for any home buying or selling needs!" - E & J Yates
"Dana and her assistant Jennifer were both very knowledgeable and were in communication with me and my wife during all the process. The process was very easy and both were available at all times if any questions. We highly recommend Dana." - Carlos Velez
"I’m a member of the USAF. Dana helped my husband and I purchase our home 6 years ago and helped us to sell the home 6 years later. She has such a comprehensive approach to buying or selling and her team made the whole process very simple. She has a lot of understanding regarding the VA loan and helped answer so many of our questions as first time buyers and sellers. She also has so many connections with local contractors, which made repairs easy and affordable, and was always available to give us advice on home upgrades. If we are ever to return to the area we will use her services again." - Michael Mannella
"Very big help in the buying house, showing this the area and learning the buying process. This is our first house and we moved to Hampton for the military, so this was a big investment and we needed someone we could trust and Knew the area. We didn’t want some corporation to sell us a home" - C & P Thompson
"I had a great experience with Dana Robbins. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. Any questions, I had at any time, she would always answer them in a timely manner. Dana is a great Realtor and I would recommend her to my family and friends." - Roberta Ashworth
"5 stars for 5 weeks. That is the length of time from contracting Dana to sell my house until it closed, 5 WEEKS! My house was not all shiny and new that would have sold itself. It needed some work. If you have a house that needs some work, you need Dana, because nobody will work harder to sell your house, like she sold mine, in five weeks :). After reading the reviews of many here, I had high expectations for Dana. She exceeded every one of them. Along with Jennifer, her Executive Assistant (yes, you get 2 for the price of 1), they have a process in place that is outstanding. Thorough, detailed, communicative, accessible, responsive, consummate. You feel confident your individual needs are understood and can rest, assured, your home is in the hands of professionals. I could go on and on but, thanks to Dana, I have a big fat check to cash. Please don’t take my word or the dozens of highly satisfied customers' words for it. You should contact Dana and see for yourself. You will be glad you did." - Richard Bockelkamp
"Dana was there for us every step of the way. She found us great financing and closed in a timely manner. We would highly recommend her services for our friends or any other real estate transactions." - Cameron Martin
"Dana and her team handled our first time home buying experience with the utmost professionalism, speed, and skill. We bought site-unseen from over 1,000 miles away and the entire process was seamless. Can’t thank Dana enough for all her recommendations on local lenders, inspectors, insurance providers, etc. Her experience and connections within the community made our decisions so much easier and gave us great peace of mind. I highly recommend Dana and her team!" - Samantha Oliver
"Dana is Amazing!! I recommend her to everyone!" - Jessica Mitchell
