Here's What Some Of Our Clients Are Saying:

I had the pleasure of working with Dawn on the purchase of a condo townhouse in Barrhaven.

The experience was fantastic. As I have a hectic schedule, Dawn arranged with 10 realtors to schedule visits to see 10 properties on the same day. She plotted out the properties and created a day long schedule to view them. She included properties from both ends of my affordability spectrum to ensure I had a clear understanding of what I could afford.

Her ability to focus the client on what they really want and need truly helped my buying experience. The research and effort she put in to ensure that I wasn't paying too much was also greatly appreciated.

I have bought and sold 3 homes (4 now!) with a realtor and can say that this experience was by far the fastest and most painless.

Thanks Dawn. Keep up the good work. I look forward to working with you again.
