With all thanks to Dawn's knowledge of real estate and utmost interest in what we were looking for, we are now living in our dream home with a great neighborhood and location. She worked very hard to take care of all what was needed to help us breeze through our buying process with no complications.

"Dawn knew every aspect of selling the Ewa property quickly and smoothly even though the property needed a ton of cleaning. The property was priced right and several offers came in competitively. Closing negotiations also went amazingly smoothly. She also knew who to contact and made necessary co-ordination with each person to complete the job."
