Drawn to Atlanta in the late 1980s, Zana found the majestic rolling hills of the city and its dense tree coverage reminiscent of her home of upstate New York. Zana's passion for the city was born out of more than its beautiful skylines, southern hospitality and stunning vistas. It came from her understanding that Atlanta's style and charm are uniquely expressed in each of its neighborhoods through architecture, art, culture and commerce. Her love for Atlanta paired with a desire for service led her into her lifelong passion of helping individuals with their real estate needs across the metro area.
Specializing in residential listings, Zana sells and negotiates home sales and purchases in the Atlanta metro. Constantly striving to provide an experience a notch above the rest, her business model revolves around putting her clients first, ensuring they have the smoothest real estate experience of their lives.
'I thrive on working with people in challenging situations and helping them to achieve their best possible transaction price,' she says. 'My clients know that they can count on me to do my best for them throughout the transaction.'
She also provides relevant information regarding schools, local insight, understanding of communities and areas, new construction and market statistics in the buying process.
Zana began her real estate career in 1998 – running her own company is invigorating and very rewarding. She has leveraged past entrepreneurial successes by becoming a multimillion-dollar producer every year since beginning of her career. For nearly two decades, she has played an integral role in the development of the luxury home market in Atlanta and within multiple brokerages.
As an Accredited Relocation Specialist, Zana is an expert at easing the transition to the metro Atlanta area. More than 30 Fortune 500 companies entrust their corporate relocations to her award-winning Dillard & Company Realty Group.
Dillard & Company Realty Group's professional team members possess more than 40 years of experience working in the Atlanta market. Their true team approach provides synergistic management of their client's needs through excellent communication, attention to detail and collaboration.
In addition to providing five-star service to her clients, Zana is passionate about a few other things in her life including animals, most especially her adorable black Labrador retriever, Zeus. As residents of Sandy Springs, Zana and Zeus are adamant hikers and among the most knowledgeable Atlantans to ask about local hiking trails. Zana's passions also extend to gourmet cooking, cycling and travel.
She has accumulated numerous prestigious accreditations, including multiple recognitions for her work in the luxury home market.
