Damian Bruno and Danielle Giann: Sedona’s Dynamic Duo of Real Estate Sales
Damian Bruno and Danielle Giann are an engaging and energetic married couple who have been successfully guiding clients in buying and selling Sedona-area real estate for almost 20 years since they moved to the area from New York City. As the leaders of a team of agents under “Damian and Danielle’s Sedona Village Real Estate Group” through Coldwell Banker Realty—the oldest and most established residential real estate franchise system in North America—this dynamic duo has been ranked in the Top 10 or Top 20 among the Sedona Verde Valley Association of Realtors in 2016 and 2018-21, which includes 650-plus agents in the entire Verde Valley. During that period, Damian and Danielle have achieved some impressive sales numbers, including averaging 40 home sales a year for the past five years. And in 2021, 19 of 26 property sales sold for asking price or higher for a total of 25 million in sales.
How do they do it? Teamwork, dedication, experience, integrity, honesty, and professionalism. Damian works with sellers and Danielle connects with buyers, but both are highly flexible agents who cater to a diverse clientele, including retirees, families, investors, and vacation renters. Damian is adept at using the latest technology to ensure that your property sells, while Danielle’s meticulousness and sharp negotiation skills will help you get the house you desire. Sedona and Sedona Village of Oak Creek are their sales areas, but Damian and Danielle and their team members serve the entire Verde Valley and pride themselves on having someone from the team available to serve you 24 hours, seven days a week.
Damian and Danielle are tech-savvy agents who were using video before their competitors embraced the medium. If the client prefers to operate virtually, they can accommodate using apps such as Facetime, Zoom, and Google Duo, and they’ve bought and sold many homes without meeting buyers or sellers in person. In addition to the productivity-boosting technology, Damian and Danielle understand the dynamic nature of advertising and use local print vehicles (newspapers, magazines, etc.), as well as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to ensure that your property sells.
For anyone looking to buy or sell a home, it’s a big advantage to work with agents who are intimately involved with the community beyond just working there. As Sedona residents since 2004, and parents of 12-year-old son Dante, Damian and Danielle are actively engaged in the Village of Oak Creek (VOC) where they make their home. Since 2013, they’ve helped organize a yearly Labor Day Oak Creek Cleanup at Red Rock Crossing, and since 2015, they’ve produced an Annual Family BBQ at the Kiwanis Park in the VOC. Damian and Danielle are board members of the Sedona Village Partnership. They are also members of the Sedona Village Rotary Club, and Danielle has organized the Rotary Club’s “Grocery Grab” which over the past three years has raised funds to support a number of local youth and community programs. Danielle also donated her time and energy to alleviate hunger in Sedona, working for many years with the Yavapai Food Council.
“When a few years ago my wife and I decided to buy a house in Sedona, we found Damian and Danielle online and they were knowledgeable, accommodating, and personable,” says Stephen Hanks, who with his wife Bea bought their home in the Village of Oak Creek in 2018 as a rental before moving to the area fulltime in 2021. “Danielle was an expert on every home she showed to us and never applied any pressure to buy. That’s the kind of real estate agent any buyer would want to work with.”
