Dina Demko believes in taking the road less traveled and leaving a trail and in letting the beauty of what you love be what you do. Her passion is the marketing and sale of luxury residential properties in Sonoma and Napa Counties, specializing in estate homes, vineyards, and land.
Dina has extensive experience in buying and selling country estate properties in Sonoma Valley for over 12 years and understands all the intricacies of country property renovations including septic and well testing, vineyard development, subdivisions, 1031 Exchanges, and multi-family investment properties. She also developed an 8-acre vineyard of Syrah in Sonoma, negotiated its grape contracts, and has knowledge with agricultural pursuits in the Wine Country.
Dina’s past experience includes working as a highly accomplished account executive closing multi-million dollar sales with Fortune 500 companies such as Gartner and Dun & Bradstreet and marketing experience with Clorox Co and Del Monte Foods.
She loves to travel and recently had the rich experience of living in Florence, Italy for five years. There, she immersed herself in the Tuscan wine country culture studying the architecture, art history, cuisine, wine, language, and lifestyle. Now, she can use this knowledge to help clients find this lifestyle right here in California wine country.
Her association with Sotheby’s International Realty, one of the world’s most prestigious brokerage firms, and with the Wine Country Colbert Group, in the top 1% of all North Bay agent sales, surrounds her with the most successful agents and real estate expertise. This, along with her reputation for delivering outstanding results for clients, makes Dina well equipped to represent buyers and sellers of distinctive properties.
Dina was raised in San Mateo and moved to Sonoma 23 years ago. She holds an MBA from San Francisco State University.
Growing up, she spent many summers at her grandparents’ ranch in Healdsburg, where they carried on many traditions from Northern Italy where they were from. They cured prosciutto, pressed olives, grew grapes, made wine and homemade pasta, and regularly cooked five course meals. Dina carries on many of these traditions at her property in Sonoma. An ideal weekend afternoon for her is spending time around the table with family and friends, cooking, enjoying local food and wine, and the surrounding countryside.
