Testimonials for Dawn Nicolaisen
Courtney and Jim B.
We were looking for an immediate sale so we could secure our next home in a new construction community. We have a young family and didn't want the burden of having to show our home too often. Dawn put together a strategy that would help us sell quickly for the best price without putting us through a lot of showings and open houses. She was able to sell the house before it was released to the market for full asking price and we were able to stay in the home until our new home was ready. We were ecstatic that the process was so smooth and painless.
Dawn was wonderful to work with. She was always responsive and in some aspects, proactive in getting things taken care of. When we first met she was fully prepared with multiple sources about the surrounding neighborhood and current selling trends. She listened to our concerns and never pushed an agenda on us. If I had more houses to sell Dawn would be my agent because I always felt she had my family's best interests in mind. I would highly recommend her to any looking for an agent who cares. We received a full price offer within 2 weeks and closed escrow within 30 days.
Thank you so much for a wonderful job selling my Costa Mesa home. I’m very pleased with the full offer received on my house and you made the entire process a very a smooth transaction. From start to finish, I couldn’t ask for better service and professionalism from you and your team. I appreciate that you were there to advise me through each step during the escrow and made it effortless. I’ll highly recommend you to all my friends and family whether they’re interested in buying or selling.
