"Amazing daughter/father duo! Dawn Nicolaisen and Jim Dillman both offer superior customer service and knowledge! Dawn is extremely detailed and the best realtor I have ever worked with, while Jim brings his sharp eye and experience as a general contractor to the field of real estate. Jim was very patient showing us multiple properties, and Dawn negotiated with her quick wit, intelligence, poise, and expertise. Both went above and beyond from beginning to end, and helped us navigate the process. Dawn read every document and even searched city permits for past repairs, read the CC&R's, and researched HOA financial stability. I don't recall other realtors doing this in my past experiences, so I was very impressed. I would highly recommend this dynamic duo to anyone looking for realtors that go above and beyond for their clients."

"SOLD!!! Dawn Nicolaisen and Jim Dillman sold our home in one weekend with multiple offers. They are a dynamic father/daughter team and both offer superior customer service and knowledge! Truly the best realtors we have ever worked with; head and shoulders above the status quo. Both went above and beyond from beginning to end, and their response time is impressive. They helped our daughter and son in law buy a home in a competitive market; beating out the competition. We were so impressed we asked them to sell our home, and they were phenomenal. Spoiler alert, they give the best gifts customized to each person or couple (not expected but definitely appreciated). We highly recommend!!! Ron & Nancy "

"Dawn is a professional, hardworking and an excellent realtor! She is kind and patient, and conscientious of the buyer’s request and she provides you with the information needed to make the transaction move smoothly and swiftly! She is very knowledgeable and involved in the Newport Beach and Costa Mesa community which allows for her a local perspective of the area she serves. I highly recommend Dawn for any residential real estate needs (buying/selling)."

"Dawn is an exceptional real estate agent! Dawn was referred to me by a mortgage lender and she did not disappoint. She has a tremendous work ethic, is a complete professional, and has exceptional skill and expertise. She was committed to helping me find the best possible home to fit my budget. As a new home buyer, I had limited expertise in the home buying process. Dawn was able to help me navigate the steps with ease. She stayed in constant communication with me ensuring I did not miss a potential property. From the time I started looking to the time I chose a property there was a small gap of time when I took a break and she continued to stay in touch and make sure I had the information I needed so that we could pick up where we left off when I was ready to start looking again. Dawn was dedicated to helping me achieve home ownership even offering additional resources to help me secure alternative funding options to make sure I had the best possible financing options to choose from.
