Raised in a family that enjoyed going to open houses on weekends, Dana Galowich continued that tradition as she got older, which helped her learn the Chicago market one neighborhood at a time. “My parents bought and sold many homes in the western suburbs when I was growing up,” Galowich says. “They would fix them up while we lived there and my mother, an interior designer, would decorate them.”
After starting out as an assistant for leasing and property managers in Chicago’s Loop, Galowich decided to obtain her real estate license so she could take a more active role in the industry. Once her children were in school, she dove in and started selling real estate.
Known for her hands-on approach with clients, Galowich strives to provide a combination of high-level service and market knowledge to all her clients, regardless of price point. “I work hard to ensure the process is as stress-free as buying or selling their home can be.”
A seasoned professional with a 13-year track record of success, Galowich knows how to pivot and adapt during changes in the market. “I have been in the business long enough to witness multiple economic cycles and shifts in the real estate market,” she says. “I am extremely hardworking and do nonstop research to make sure my clients find exactly what they are looking for.”
Galowich and her husband are active supporters of Cradles to Crayons, a nonprofit organization that provides school supplies, clothing and other essential items to homeless and low-income children. For the past few years, they have hosted an annual event with 100 of their closest friends who volunteer to prepare donation packages. Galowich is happiest whenever she can spend time with her husband, Dave, her son, Justin, and her daughter, RyAnne. She also enjoys Pilates and paddleboarding with her dog, Ziggy.
