Getting To Know Whistler Real Estate Agent Dana Friesen Smith

Share Article

Based out of Stilhavn’s Whistler Office, Dana Friesen Smith is the lead agent and listing specialist from the Sea to Sky Dream Team



Five years ago, Dana became a REALTOR® to help people navigate the sometimes complex Real Estate process. “I understand how complicated Real Estate can be and my goal is to make that realization of selling or buying Real Estate as seamless as possible,” says Dana. “I love to help people!”


Raised in B.C., Dana was drawn to Whistler by the stunning mountains, endless recreation, and the tight-knit community. Today, Dana still calls the Sea to Sky Corridor her home and is committed to helping others find their dream home here as well. 


Dana’s professionalism, work ethic, and commitment to her clients, combined with her genuine personality, have contributed to her success in the industry. In 2018,  Dana became a President’s Club Member. This significant achievement places her in the top 1% of Greater Vancouver’s REALTORS®, alongside many others in the Stilhavn family


On the weekends, Dana is usually found giving a showing or hosting an Open House, but, when the work is done, Dana heads for the outdoors. She loves the variety of activities in the Sea to Sky, and is often seen skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. 


The atmosphere of the Sea to Sky Corridor and the people there are some of Dana’s favourite things about the area. “The Sea to Sky is full of people who don’t hold back, who get the absolute most out of every day. It’s important for me to share that drive and philosophy of working hard and seizing the moment,” says Dana.


There’s a lot to love about Whistler. Dana enjoys spending the day on her barge on Lake Alta, relaxing with family and friends. When it comes to finding a place to live, there are plenty of options here. White Gold, a popular destination, is just a short walk away from Whistler Village.


While you may be familiar with the professional REALTOR® side of Dana, you may not know how devoted she is to supporting her community. Dana spends time volunteering at different organizations, and after every sale, she donates to the Children’s Miracle Network. Between working and volunteering, it’s clear that Dana is committed to helping others.
