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 is a true professional. She knows the market well and what people are looking for in a home. She had our trust throughout the selling process. When we decided to put our rental property in Irvine up for sale she came in with great advice on what to fix up and what not to focus on. The recommendations that she made sold the house. Within two weeks we had a cash buyer and a 21 day escrow. She was with us every step of the way. She was in daily contact with escrow, HOA and the buying agent to make sure the quick escrow process went smoothly. We would highly recommend her services."

"Dawn worked with my husband and I to navigate through a difficult situation when we were buying our home. She was was very responsive and went out of her way to brainstorm ways in which she could help us. She followed up every time to see how we were doing and offer help. She is very thorough and professional. She is also very sweet and understanding. Thank you Dawn!"

"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.
