Testimonials

"Dawn has worked with us over the last few years on the sale of our two properties in New Canaan. She was also our broker when we bought those properties in 2010 and our broker on our new house in New Canaan. She is a great real estate agent and friend. We listed and relisted and changed our mind several times over those years, and Dawn was always patient and gave us very good advice. She was also very patient in the sales process and worked extremely hard. She found the right buyer for our property after a long process in which she showed great perseverance. Dawn has a deep knowledge of the market and she is fun to work with. We would highly recommend her to people interviewing brokers." - T and D

"We had an incredible experience working with Dawn to buy our first home. Buying a home is a daunting process at the best of times, but even more challenging in a competitive market. Dawn was there every step of the way during the home search and purchase process to make it as seamless as possible. Her tireless efforts, positivity, responsiveness, patience, and guidance made Dawn an indispensable partner in our real estate journey. We are so grateful to Dawn for her help in finding our new home, which we absolutely love." - Bev W.

“We bought a house from Dawn in October and could not have been happier with the process. She is a true professional as well as patient, smart and extremely knowledgable. Dawn went above and beyond and we could not have asked for a better broker!” ~ Sicily B

"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.

“Dawn is a true professional who treats every client as if they are her ONLY client. She is patient, thorough and always goes above and beyond in servicing her clients. Dawn is focused, detail oriented and makes sure all paperwork is complete and accurate. Dawn has an excellent reputation within the Real Estate community, our office and in the town of New Canaan. She is involved in a variety of volunteer organizations and is always eager to help in any way she can. I am proud have Dawn as a member of my team! I know that any opportunities I give her will be handled professionally. I am confident that Dawn will continue to build her business by referrals from past clients who have experienced Dawn's expertise. Dawn is the type of agent everyone hopes to work with.” ~ Arlene Bubbico, Coldwelll Banker Manager

“Dawn stands out as one of the top brokers in the eleven property transactions that I've accomplished. Not only does she make time to get to know the market served but she goes out of her way to get to know the client she is working for. Highly recommended! “Peter D

Dawn was great, worked with us for over a year to find the perfect house, and the perfect rental while we searched. She came to quickly understand exactly what we were looking for and when she saw it, a year later, called us and said she found our house - which she did. We made an offer that day. She not only knows the area well, she knows all the agents in the area which is super helpful in finding a home. ~ Rick P

“I cannot recommend Dawn highly enough. She stuck with us through a very lengthy and changeable search and the subsequent, messy foreclosure home purchase. She made appointments for more than 55 homes and called for information on many more we didn't visit together in the 9+ months and seven zip codes it took to find our new home. She was always prompt, responsive, thorough, incredibly professional and beyond that, classy, understanding and thoughtful. She was never pushy or "salesy" and connected us to everyone we needed to help us through the process. On one of our many house shopping trips together she said, ‘I could do this forever.’ She enjoys her job and it shows”. ~ Emilie Y
