Dana Ambs has renovated/designed/sold/built hundreds of properties starting at the age of 21. She is a degreed interior design/business/REALTOR® professional with experience designing and managing renovations of corporate campuses for some of the Midwest's largest companies. Though she produced award winning designs during her corporate career, her true passion was renovating properties with meticulous detail for a modern lifestyle.
Lured by Austin's vibrant economy and neighborhood culture, Dana relocated to the entrepreneurial city to begin Making Modern Home and obtained her real estate license. She has represented buyers and listed Austin properties for over 100 successful sales. Often, she is coordinating contractors, though she loves to get actively involved in the heavy duty construction herself!
While involved in several neighborhood, civic, wellness, church and volunteer endeavors, she shares her enthusiasm for renovation, design, and real estate with her clients and community. She still retains a strong Midwestern work ethic and an appreciation for frugality that leads to successful, unique designs incorporating a variety of new, old, and re-purposed goods and then works diligently to assemble and deliver the "whole package". Designer turned Developer, Flipper turned Realtor, she’s always looking forward to adding value to all of her projects and for all of her clients!
Dana has not only helped me buy and sell my personal homes over the years, but she has also identified and secured several investment properties for me, taking them from inception to final execution, that has turned out to be fantastic success stories. She has a well-rounded set of training and expertise in design and construction, as well as a firm grasp of the labyrinthine world of City of Austin regulatory bodies that make her a very unique asset to anyone looking to enter the Austin market. I recommend Dana for homebuyers, from the most experienced to the first-timer, as well as for seasoned professional investors looking for an edge.— Seller
Dana is an exceptional Realtor®! I've utilized her services to buy a condo, then sell the condo and upgrade to a home. She is highly skilled in the home-buying process, knowledgeable about the top neighborhoods, and strategic in preparing proposals for buyers and sellers. Additionally, her home-building experience provides valuable insights into the benefits and risks of choosing different properties. I highly recommend Dana!— Buyer
