About Dana Friesen Smith

Success is where opportunity meets hard work.

And hard work is the driving force behind Dana Friesen Smith’s meteoric rise to the top of the Sea to Sky Real Estate game.

Just four years ago, Dana was a Real Estate rookie with a keen eye and the drive to succeed. Last month she was inducted into the RE/MAX Hall of Fame for overall career sales, and crowned Whistler’s Favourite Realtor for the second time by readers of the Pique Newsmagazine. She consistently ranks among the Top 10% of Realtors in British Columbia (Medallion Club status) and has been a RE/MAX 100% Platinum Club member each of the past 4 years.

“I’ve always strived for success,” Dana says. “And I’m lucky enough to live in a place that inspires me to do better every day.”

Raised in BC, Dana returned home immediately after completing a triple major degree in Psychology, Sociology and Kinesiology at the University of Manitoba. She was drawn to Whistler by the stunning mountains, endless recreation, and tight-knit community and has called the Sea to Sky home for over a decade.

Known for her detail-focused work ethic and tenacious negotiation skills, Dana also recently received the RE/MAX Spirit Award for her good-natured integrity, honesty and inborn drive to deliver the best customer service possible.

“If something is worth doing it’s worth doing to the best of your ability,” Dana says. “And then some. The Sea to Sky is full of people who don’t hold back, who get the absolute most out of every day and its important to me to share that drive and philosophy of working hard and seizing the moments.”

Dana believes one of the most important aspects of success is paying it forward and providing opportunity for others. She donates $50 from every sale to the Children’s Miracle Network, volunteers at the IRONMAN Whistler, is a Founder’s Circle supporter of the Whistler Film Festival and brought RE/MAX on as a major sponsor of the WNorthConference For Women.

Helping clients fall in love with the Sea to Sky, brings Dana great joy. “My clients deserve nothing less than top service and results,” she says. “If you have any real estate questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to call or email me anytime.”

Dana and her team worked hard to find us the right buyer for our home. She did not pressure us for price reductions, instead she listened to us and let us decide. I would highly recommend Dana, Kristen and Madison for your home buying and selling needs. ... Read more

Dana and Madison were recommended by our local Vancouver realtor as the only team to work with in Whistler...and they certainly didn't disappoint! Maddison helped us secure our rental property in a very cut-throat market. She was very proactive in getting our offer first to the table. Ben and I couldn't be more happy with the outcome. Thank you!!!... Read more

Madi is hands down the hardest working realtor I know. For the past 4 months she worked on a deal for my partner and I that continuously had issues, she nor most realtors would have ever dealt with. She was keen to learn and left us feeling worried. I would recommend Madi (and the entire Dream Team) to anyone!!... Read more

We had an amazing experience working with Dana's team. Kristen was extremely helpful! We recently moved here from Ontario and Kristen helped educate us on local market. She was very patient and made sure to show us a wide range of options all within our comfort zone. We looked at total fixer uppers to move in ready from the bottom of our price range so we could make an informed decision. ... Read more
