"Above and beyond is the best way of describing how Dawn worked every step of the way. She was an absolute wealth of information on not only the many towns we looked in but on every aspect of the home buying process. We were continually impressed about how knowledgeable she was and how easily she conveyed this information to us. We walked away from every interaction feeling well heard, well taken care of, and in great hands. She took us through many homes in our search and in each one took the time to truly listen to what we were looking for and help us to envision how to get there. When we did find our current home, she was invaluable in making a bumpy process smooth and continuing to move everything along for us. She took the time, without being asked, to research the answers to every single question we had about the house, surrounding properties, and history of the property—some of which required multiple trips to Town Hall and speaking to contractors that previously worked on the property. Again, above and beyond. We were moving from out of town so her guidance and connections to everything local was indispensable and saved us countless hours of research. Her communication was prompt, clear, and efficient and we could never say enough good things. If you are looking for a true professional that is also kind and thoughtful you can't get any better than Dawn." – Laura D.
