“We turned to Dawn knowing we needed to act fast in the challenging real estate market of Arlington. Dawn was able to focus us on properties we would not have considered. She was efficient and so pleasant to work with, providing expert guidance and extensive resources from her many years in the field. With Dawn's help, we purchased a property that is just right for our family. Dawn made the whole process as easy as it could have been. On top of that, Dawn gives back to our community to help keep Arlington the special place that we love.”

“Dawn was a fantastic realtor for our family. Throughout, she worked with us to empower us and to help us achieve our goals. We felt comfortable with her-- not only to see the properties that were of particular interest to us, but also to act when opportunities presented themselves. She provided incredibly helpful and timely counsel as we decided how we wanted to move forward. Her advice was invaluable in terms of us getting our offer accepted, at a good price and with minimal concessions. Dawn is not only diligent and thorough: she is also cool, calm, and collected under pressure, which ended up being crucial at several of the (inevitably) more stressful junctures in our home search. I feel confident that Dawn's presence as a companion and guide with my wife and I in our real estate journey helped us to approach the task of purchasing a home with less stress and more clarity. I cannot recommend her more highly.”
