Dawn Marie & Jim

"Dawn was eager and willing to help us begin the process and brought us immediately into her office to go over everything we were looking for in our first home. She got right to work and we had a significant amount of listings in our inbox within 12 hours of our meeting. Shortly thereafter, we set up appointments at the first few houses and continued our search from there. As first time home buyers, we were naive to much of the things we should be looking out for and also the areas we should be looking in. Dawn was of tremendous value when helping us navigate through the process. The difficult, tedious process became very manageable because of the incredible help, insight, and advice Dawn provided us with. She was our “go-to” for all our questions. Furthermore, Dawn handled the competitive, fast-paced, Orange County market like a true professional."

"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. "

"If you are looking to buy or sell a home in Orange County you would be foolish not to give Dawn a call. Dawn was a top notch real estate professional throughout the entire process of selling our home. During our first consultation Dawn was prepared with small home improvement suggestions, a staging recommendation, and estimated home sale price based on comps in the neighborhood. Dawn's true expertise comes from the marketing of the home right before it hit the market. Over 30 high quality photos were taken of a beautifully staged home taken during the peak of natural sunlight. This really highlighted the positive attributes of the home while masking some of the areas that needed some small improvements. Dawn's communication was constant and informative. I never felt like I was unaware of how the selling process was trending. She made me feel like I was her most important client."
