Buyer's Agent, Listing Agent, Relocation
"Dawn Knief is an absolutely amazing person and real estate agent! She has a commanding knowledge of Scarsdale and Southern Westchester. Dawn has helped us buy and sell 3 properties in Scarsdale. We first worked with Dawn when we wanted to “upgrade” within Scarsdale about 15 years ago. Dawn spent a great deal of time getting to know us and learning about what we wanted in a home. Dawn's insights into the market, local culture, and property assessment were invaluable to us. We eventually found an amazing home in a neighborhood that was perfect for our family. We loved our home from when we moved in, when our children were in Elementary School, until we sold it after they graduated from college! Dawn is highly motivated, competent and fun to work with. She did an outstanding job staging our homes, went above and beyond what was expected, and did an exceptional job pricing our homes. We had multiple offers on both properties - which is especially remarkable since the sale of our second home was an especially challenging market. Dawn consistently kept us calm, focused and energized. We could not have had a better experience than we had with the Dawn. We recommend Dawn Knief without reservation! "
