  • Agent Profile
    Dana Landry, a Founding Partner of Washington Fine Properties, has been the firm's Principal Broker since 2000 and has been instrumental in the firm's well managed growth since its inception.

    Prior to joining Washington Fine Properties, Dana spent 17 years with Mitel, a global leader in telecommunications, with 20 million users in over 90 countries. After serving in several financial management and analysis roles, Dana became the Manager of Finance for U.S. Operations. Next he was asked to move to Mitel's corporate headquarters in Canada to head corporate finance worldwide for one of the company's major divisions. He was then asked to take on the corporate finance role worldwide across several divisions, overseeing all aspects of planning, budgeting, forecasting and reporting. This led to Dana being promoted to the Director of Finance for the corporation, with over 150 people in his group.

    His next challenge, having served as the financial point person for a major acquisition in the U.S., was to help integrate that acquisition into Mitel's U.S. business. This required Dana to ultimately relocate to Mitel's U.S. headquarters in Reston, Virginia, where, subsequent to the successful integration of the acquisition, he became Head of Finance, Human Resources and Information Systems for the U.S. Before leaving Mitel in 2000 to join Washington Fine Properties, Dana had also taken on responsibility for Financial Business Support for Sales, Marketing, and Service.

    As Principal Broker, Dana is responsible for the overall management and operations of WFP, including Finance, Human Resources and Information Technology. Dana is a Certified Management Accountant, a member of the Institute of Management Accountants, and actively involved in the Greater Area Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.

  • My Sales
  • My Testimonials

    Dear Dana,

    I don't know if Washington Fine Properties has awards. If so, I have some nominees. If not, here are some candidates for recognition at your next lunch gathering.

    First heroine is Sally Marshall. She sold my mother's house at full asking price within about two weeks. However, she demonstrated her professionalism on this deal two years before. I had a hip replacement, and my mother had a stroke on the same day. I was worried what my mother's finances would be, so, still groggy from the operation, I called Sally for advice. She was gracious and very helpful, even, later, when it seemed like my son would be taking over the house, and thus not a traditional sale. When I turned to her this year, she kicked right in with highly personalized professionalism and very wise advice about preparing the property.

    If there were a category for hardship-pay commissions, Sally earned it. Before the ideal buyer arrived, Sally's presentation of the house attracted not only the normal level of interest but we had not one, but two over-eager potential buyers. (I'll let the full story come out when she writes her memoirs some day.)

    Dana wins best supporting role for his calm, strong, wise role in the over-eager buyer stage.

    Marilyn Paige wins in the international category. Not only had she attracted a super-qualified European buyer to help them find a home, but in an incredibly short timeframe, (with the paperwork and the process jumping from Germany to England to the US), she got everything prepared, initiated, and she presented us with the most clean, organized offer imaginable, even taking care of financing and inspection issues in advance! It was extremely impressive and certainly made up my mind.

    Sally would correct me if I did not give credit to some supportive players, some of whom are sitting in the room. Thank you to those of you who previewed the house on Carvel Road in Westmoreland Hills, and submitted secret "votes" to Sally on what would be the most appropriate asking price. This process brings great comfort and credibility (and/or reality check) for the sellers. We followed your advice, and you were right.

    Finally, congratulations to WFP for by-far-the-best photography and web presentation. Wow! In fact, the pictures were probably a big reason that Marylyn's clients felt comfortable making a perfectly prepared final offer before actually seeing the house in person.

    So, sincere thanks and congratulations to the whole WFP team.
