"Dawn worked tirelessly with our family for over 10 months as we searched for our perfect home in Scarsdale. She was so very patient and calm as we changed our minds over and over and over again. Dawn shared neighborhood knowledge with us like only a longtime resident could. You are in good hands with Dawn!" - Carmelina P.
"Dawn handled the purchase of an existing home and sale of a new construction home and was wonderful to work with. She has a solid handle on the real estate market. While negotiating both sides of the transaction, she displayed professionalism, flexibility and integrity throughout. A true pro and a pleasure to deal with. She has our highest recommendation."
"Dawn provides expertise and knowledge that only a long time resident could provide. Being able to talk about the schools first hand and knowing many of the children in Heathcote, she is a walking encyclopedia. When selling my house there appeared to be a missing CO for the house and garage she went thru 90 years worth of the town records to find the missing documents. She is a person that does not give up and gives 110% all the time. " - Bernard A.
