MEET DANA H. OGLESBY: YOUR TUSCALOOSA REAL ESTATE AGENT
Dana Hartley Oglesby grew up in the Tuscaloosa area and started working at age sixteen in apparel retail sales. For twenty-five years, she enjoyed working in that form of sales. After undergoing dramatic adjustments in her life, at age forty, she was faced with rebuilding her life and raising her two then teenage boys, Blake and Brock, alone. In January of 2005, Dana began her rewarding career as a residential realtor in the fast paced real estate business.
However, a couple of years after Dana began her career, the real estate industry went through one of the hardest times in U.S. history. Dana not only survived but succeeded with her determination to provide for her sons, her dedication to hard work and her complete faith in God. Despite life’s setbacks, along with her faith, her optimistic outlook gives her the ability to view life as continually changing for the better and in 2013, she married Randy Oglesby. Along with her two sons, she feels blessed to have her stepson, Kyle, stepdaughter, Anna and her husband, Andrew, as part of the family as well. In 2015, her eldest son, Blake, married Kaleigh and also, Anna and Andrew welcomed the arrival of their daughter, Emma.

In the summer of 2014, she received the new, nationally recognized designation “Seller Representative Specialist” which is the premier credential in seller representation. In 2013, she was nominated for the “Cooperative Spirit Award” by her fellow realtors in the Tuscaloosa Association of Realtors, which indicates that she always makes a concerted effort to work closely with her clients and associates. In 2015, Dana established the local Black Warrior chapter of BNI and currently serves as President.
