What do Clients Say?
We decided at the beginning of the year to sell our house and buy a new one in Mountain View. After a chance encounter with Dawn at an open house, we added her to our list of candidate Realtors to interview. We were immediately impressed with her preparation, confidence, and experience. The other thing that impressed us was her commitment to never represent both the buyer and the seller on a transaction. Therefore, we knew she would always be looking our for our best interests, and was the best choice for us.We were ready to move, so we had a quick schedule to put our house on the market. Dawn and her team worked hard getting all the pieces into place for us, and our home was well advertised in advance of going on the market. We had record numbers of people come through our first open house weekend, and the house sold within the week, with multiple offers. Dawn communicated with us every step of the way, and her negotiating skills were instrumental in getting us a transaction deal we were happy with.We were pretty specific about what we wanted for our new house, and Dawn worked hard to find us a house that would meet our needs. We never felt that she wanted us to hurry up and buy something - she really wanted us to be happy with our choice. We close on our new home in under a week. Once again, Dawn and her team have been excellent in communicating with us, and are absolutely on top of every milestone that needs to be met when buying a house. .Dawn is always prepared, always on top of things, and will always work hard for her clients to get them the best possible price - whether buying or selling. We would definitely use Dawn and her team again for any future real estate transactions, and I will be recommending her wholeheartedly to all of my friends and family.Andrew and Melissa Welsh--Mountain View, CA
We feel really lucky to have been introduced to Dawn as without her, moving would still be probably just a dream. As soon as Dawn came into our life, she helped us refine our dream and make it happen.Only 15 minutes after our first phone conversation with Dawn, we were in contact with a realtor to sell our current house (outside of her area), and with an amazing mortgage consultant. The quest for our new home really started during our first in-person meeting. She sincerely sought to understand the reasons of our move and what we envisioned our new life to be like. She also very quickly grasped our personalities and the best way to communicate with us.Once we found the house we really wanted, she was our best asset. She helped us put together a strong offer, had great contractors inspect the house, and renegotiated our offer after receiving the inspections reports. Finally, what we appreciated the most during this whole process was how she orchestrated all the moving parts around us. She checked in with our East Bay realtor, our mortgage broker at least on a daily basis and clearly communicated with us. We ended up getting our dream house and sell our East Bay house in the same week.I would recommend Dawn to anyone around me who needs to buy or sell a house. She is a brilliant professional, and more generally a wonderful person we hope to have in our life for a really long time.Pierre and Anne-Sophie Seigneurbieux--Mountain View, CA
Dawn Thomas is an exceptional professional. She understands the business of real estate and the subtleties of the human interactions involved better than any other agent I have met. She recently represented us in the sale of our home in Palo Alto and managed the process flawlessly. She not only provided great professional service, she extended her friendship and because of that, we look forward to staying in touch with Dawn in the future.Dana DeNault and Nina Lualdi--Palo Alto, CA
My husband and I were referred to Dawn by another Realtor. We worked with her in both a buying and selling capacity: She helped us sell our house fast - guiding us through all the things we needed to do to get it ready - and then helping us buy our new house.The house we wanted to buy was a tricky deal - and Dawn remained close to the selling realtor, understanding and keeping us aware of what was happening with our offer, and counter offers. Without Dawn, I believe the deal would never have happened and it was because of all the roles she played: part business person, part counselor, part friend, part bulldog. ;-)Through the whole process (which was about eight months start-to-finish), she was unbelievably professional. She was always our advocate, and got involved in every part of both deals - marketing our home, connecting with our mortgage team, and even staying involved in the various inspections, repairs, etc.The best part: she is a great person. When you spend hours driving around with someone looking at houses, it is so much better when you enjoy their company. We got to know each other really well and Dawn is genuinely a good person.We would absolutely recommend Dawn and her team to anyone buying a home in the bay area (Palo Alto to West San Jose).Jim and Cari Jaquet--Campbell, CA
