After moving to Los Angeles from her native Dublin seven years ago with nothing but a couple of suitcases and her sunny disposition, Dayna McKiernan has established a glowing reputation for her innovative marketing strategies, five-star service, and passion for the city. “I truly believe Southern California is one of the most beautiful places in the world to live and am so lucky to call it my second home,” she says. In Ireland, Dayna attended the University of Dublin, and Trinity College and studied abroad at UC Santa Cruz, where she first fell in love with California.
Dayna loves to see L.A. through real estate as she represents clients throughout the Westside. She specializes in working with first-time buyers and sellers in Mar Vista, Westchester, and Culver City. An attentive listener armed with local market knowledge, she makes sure she understands exactly what her clients want and then works tirelessly to achieve it, whether that means negotiating the best price or shortest escrow. For Dayna, no question is too big or small. “This is the biggest transaction most people will ever experience,” she acknowledges, “And I empathize with that.” Her professionalism and fondness for bad puns help ensure her clients feel at ease.
Among recent accolades, she has negotiated a whopping $60,000 price reduction for one buyer, successfully beat out multiple offers while not actually being the highest price considered for another, and received multiple offers on a listing, netting the seller significantly more than they anticipated.
She takes full advantage of her adopted home in her free time, biking to the beach, swimming in the ocean, barbecuing by the pool with friends, and volunteering with Union Rescue Mission. On her own, she enjoys reading, singing, and trying (and failing) to learn guitar.
