Dana Snow is the founder and Broker of Record at Punk Rock Realty, Inc. and it’s her passion for punk rock music from which the brokerage got its name. Some of her favourite bands include Ripcordz, BFGs, Rancid, Anti-Flag, Lunachicks, amongst a thousand more. Her downtime is spent attending concerts, boating, motorcycling, and hanging out with her wife Joanne and their pets.
Her love of learning and trying new things is demonstrated in her extensive education. She holds: a Master’s Degree in the History of Art from the University of Toronto; an Associate’s Degree in Fine Arts / Photography from the Ontario College of Art & Design; Honour’s Bachelor’s Degrees in Philosophy and Contemporary Studies, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Wilfrid Laurier University; and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Web Design, Development & Maintenance from Humber College. She also holds several designations from the National Associations of Realtors, including the S.R.S. (Seller Representative Specialist), B.R.S. (Buyer Representative Specialist), and the S.R.E.S. (Seniors Real Estate Specialist).
Aside from her scholastic career, she also has over 20 years’ experience working in the marketing and communications field in various roles including writer, researcher, web developer, graphic designer, and Director of Marketing and Communications.
As a child, she was fortunate to observe and assist her parents in the design, construction and sale of a number of their homes. Inspired by the unlimited potential of real estate, she purchased her first property in her early twenties and has owned countless properties since, employing a wide variety of real estate investment strategies to support her school, art, music, and travel interests. If you want to know what it’s like to travel around North America in an orange 1972 Volkswagon van on a student budget, just ask her. She was a road trip master before there was GPS – being a creative problem-solver helped her then, and it still one of her best assets now that the van is gone and she’s moved to the lake.
Fast-forward to today, she has lived, renovated, and transacted in the majority of real estate markets throughout the G.T.A., Greater Golden Horseshoe, and Southern and Central Ontario – from Buffalo, Brantford, Hamilton, and Toronto, to Oshawa / Durham Region, and Peterborough / Kawartha Lakes. She is an active realtor in all of these markets, and able to provide you the guidance you need to make informed decisions about your future home or investment property.
