Client Reviews:

To Past, Present and Future Clients of Dawn D’Auria,

Our move to Florida began with interviews for a realtor. We were looking for someone who we could trust to sell our house while we focused on relocating. Dawn from the very first meeting out-shined all the rest. Her knowledge and preparedness to inform and guide us through the sale of our home was evident during our first meeting. On the interview alone we could not have chosen a better realtor. Yet, once we informed Dawn that we wanted her to sell our house she began to truly demonstrate all that we hoped for in a professional.

We knew our house was going to sell without us living in it due to a quick relocation for family and career choices. Dawn made us feel secure that our house was going to be well cared for in our absence, and it was. Throughout the process the advice that she gave had the right blend of experience of the realty industry and her understanding of our needs and desires for the sale. She continued to make suggestions and take actions that were always in the best interest of our house and us, her clients. Overtime, we realized that if Dawn suggests it, then it will lead us in the right direction, and it always did. Her experience in how to price, market and show our house was the deciding factor in the sale of our home.

The final closing on our home was yet another indication of Dawn’s commitment to us, not just as clients, but as people. She vigorously worked on our behalf while dealing with the sellers, attorneys and mortgage companies. In the end it was evident that she was representing us and our needs, not her own. Dawn made the sale of our house feel more like a life experience than a business transaction. That is why it is with great pleasure that we emphatically recommend Dawn D’Auria for any situation that deals with the sale, purchase or renting of a property. Our only hope was that she could have represented us in Florida as buyers too.

"Dawn is an outstanding realtor, by far the smartest and most professional I've ever dealt with. She sold a home for me making a complex deal come together quickly. Dawn has some really good ideas about how to make homes sell and how to get the best price. After seeing her negotiate, I came away thinking, "Wow, I'm very happy she's on my side." I will never use another realtor."

  -David A, Client

"Simply put...Outstanding. A true professional with complete and in-depth understanding of the entire process, yet still maintains a personal touch. She listens to your needs and requirements that will benefit your family. If you’re looking a real estate agent that makes you feel like you have a friend in the business, Dawn is your person. Give her a call. You’ll be impressed."

  -Matt C, Client

"We used Dawn to purchase two homes in Hamden. One was a multi-family and the second a single family in Mount Carmel. In both cases she was extremely professional and very responsive to our needs and budget. She was also great in negotiating favorable terms and excellent i supporting us throughout the entire buying process. I couldn't think of anyone better to recommend!"

  -Justin M, Client

"Dawn was the best realtor we ever used and would only use her if needed in future. She was instrumental in finding our family the perfect home. She listened to our needs and showed us only houses we would consider, unlike other realtors we've known that showed us homes with things we specifically did not want. She was always professional, returned our calls quickly and was knowledgable of the area. When it came time for contracts she was also very knowledgable and negotiated a lower price. The whole process was great from start to closing and we are still enjoying our home 17 years later!"
