Dawn Marie & Jim

"Dawn was very knowledgeable and resourceful in an incredibly difficult market. We moved to CA from out of state and her knowledge of Southern CA really helped us narrow down which areas of Orange County would suit our family the best. She never hesitated to ask selling agents questions we had about the homes we looked at or do further investigation if we had a question she didn't know the answer to. She used some great tactics to help us negotiate and make our offers stand out above others and she was always willing to show us a house as soon as it came up on the market. Thanks to Dawn we found a great house in a great neighborhood and couldn't be happier!"

"Dawn sold my house for an excellent price, with a rapid turn-around. She was immediately available for all my needs, including advice on repairs and maintenance needs. The house was in co-ownership as well as litigation, and my attorney was impressed with her analytical skills."

"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 "
