Dawn is the most diligent realtor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Selling a home during the Covid-19 pandemic was nerve-wracking, and we wondered if putting our house on the market was even the right decision. Every step of the way, Dawn was the epitome of cool, calm and collected—she kept us updated on market conditions and ever-changing Covid requirements, and we never felt pushed into selling ASAP or waiting out the market. Dawn’s network of outstanding contractors, landscapers, and designers were invaluable in helping us to refresh and update our home. She made many recommendations, but never pushed us to change something if we were not willing. She took the time to understand how we used each room in our house, and what made our home special to us so that she could communicate this to prospective buyers. Her hard work paid off – we received multiple offers and $200K over our asking price! Dawn’s experience, expertise, and the team of professionals backing her at McGuire Real Estate made for a very smooth transition through the preparation, marketing, offer acceptance, and escrow processes. Her keen attention to detail helped ensure that every single requirement was completed correctly and on-time; there were no hiccups, no last-minute scrambles for paperwork. Dawn is not only an outstanding realtor; she is also a valued member of the Brisbane community. As a fitness and yoga instructor, youth basketball coach and a board member for multiple community organizations, she gives back to Brisbane in many, many ways. We are grateful for all of Dawn’s hard work and dedication in selling our home; we look forward to working with her again next time we buy or sell!

Selling a house is quite the endeavor - few life events can have such an impact on a family. To think of it as a mere financial transaction is an underestimation of the scope of a project that included landscaping design, a new paint color scheme, a refreshed interior, coordination with multiple contractors - and then staging, marketing and showing the house, all during a world-wide pandemic. Quite the high pressure situation... Dawn was at once our guide and our teammate. Her advice was sound yet she gave us space to make the decisions. Her network of competent professionals removed risks and complexities. Her creativity enabled us to do a hybrid of virtual and physical staging - showing a house that had never been in better shape since we had built it 10 years prior. The 3D cyber furnishings looked sooo good (and real!) that we felt we should have bought them in real life! This marketing plan got quite the interest on the property which was priced right for our market, as evidenced by the steady flow of prequalified, interested parties. The process culminated with a multiple offer situation, resulting in our getting over $200,000 above asking price. Through it all, Dawn simplified all the paperwork, made quick work of all the disclosures, and guided us all through a smooth escrow period. Grace under pressure, this woman. A consummate professional. A winner. A valued member of our community. And, eventually, our realtor, again.

Dawn was the buying agent for the home my wife and I purchased in Brisbane. She was very helpful through the whole process from pricing our offer all the way through to close of escrow. She was friendly, responsive, and had very has a deep knowledge of the Brisbane. I would definitely recommend her to other folks looking to buy a home.

– Michael Wicker

Dawn made the selling of our home easy by helping us make things work on many levels: 1) She so readily accommodated our schedule. 2) She assisted us in prioritizing the issues that were most critical to us. 3) She displayed a confidence and even-handedness in dealing with all parties. Thanks Dawn, we really appreciate it!

Dawn and her team were first rate. I never imagined that a sale could go so quickly and smoothly. All my questions and requests were handled immediately.

– Bob Dettmer

Dawn was amazing to work with when we sold our house! She was very honest and professional when it came to staging and marketing the house while at the same time, respecting the fact that we have three young children and needed to maintain some sort of normalcy for them. Dawn proved that she was knowledgable about the home market in the Bay Area regarding pricing and the timing of the sale and the open houses. I appreciate that Dawn put us, her clients, first by looking out for our interests and making the process as seamless as possible. We will be recommending her to anyone who needs a realtor!

I could not be more thrilled with our choice to have Dawn represent my family and I in the sale of our home in Brisbane. Dawn has vision, endless energy, expertise and the highest standard of professional service… and she delivers. Our house was exceptionally marketed, from staging to pictures to hosting an Open House on a Holiday to attract potential buyers with an extra day off. She also ensured our family life was not impacted by overzealous agents wanting to tour our home at odd hours - for which I am incredibly grateful. And, at the end of the day, her expertise delivered us multiple offers and a sale price significantly over asking! In summary, Dawn is an amazing business partner and I would recommend her to anyone (buying or selling)!

My husband Paul and I recently worked with Dawn to sell one of our homes and we can’t recommend her enough! Selling a home can be a roller coaster of details and emotions and Dawn very patiently helped us work through all of it. She works with a great team who helped us prep the house to perfection. We will always choose Dawn!

– Ariadne Rosas

Dawn recently helped us sell our house. She was just fabulous. She helped organize all the work needed to prep the house, from painting to repairs, to yard work, to staging. She was there almost every day, and worked around our work and kid's schedules. She pulled off an amazing transformation. She organized day time, weekend and nighttime open houses, that really showed off the extras the house had to offer. She brought in multiple competitive offers, and we eventually sold the house for significantly more than asking price. Dawn worked incredibly hard for us, and was always kind, considerate and professional. She made a stressful process as stress-free as possible, and absolutely delivered.

Dawn rocked my house sale! I was very stressed and anxious about the process, but Dawn was there for me every step, and she made it fun. She has a deep well of energy, optimism, and compassion. I couldn't have gotten thru it without her. I highly recommend Dawn David for selling your house.

– Megan Garner

Through Dawn, we found what is truly our dream home! During the application process, she was so enjoyable to work with and had a ton of knowledge on the house and the area. She took time to get to know what we were looking for and it was clear that she put a lot of effort and care into making sure it would be a great fit, which we really appreciated. Even after moving in, she has been so accessible and proactively checks in. If you’re looking for your dream home, she has my highest recommendation to help you find it!

– Daria Jammal

Dawn is a real pleasure to work with. She is super friendly, honest, responsive and gets things done (fast). Thanks to her, we now live in our dream place. I highly recommend Dawn and I know next time we’re on the market she’ll be the first person we call. Thank you Dawn!

One of life's most important decisions is finding a family home. Dawn was indispensable to our success in discovering our home. She was able to successfully match our personal preferences with a house we love. In addition to Dawn's extensive knowledge of the housing market, she is very adept at listening and understanding the important balance between one's 'wish list' and affordability. Dawn is a joy to work with as she is very professional, outgoing and personable. Her integrity, constant support and unwavering encouragement were valuable assets throughout our process. Any potential home buyer or seller will be well served to have Dawn as their agent.

Dawn assisted us througout the purchase of our new house, from pre-sale to after-sale. She has always been punctual, knowledgable and friendly. I was specifically impressed by her knowledge of the building and construction. With her assistance, this purchase has been taken to another level. Professional and courteous! Thank you Dawn!

– Farshad Owji

Several years ago, Dawn was extremely helpful to us as we looked for a house. She was friendly and absolutely knew what she was doing: knowledgeable about the house, the neighborhood, and everything important. We did choose that house and it was a good decision. More, since then we’ve seen her in a variety of roles in the community and she continues to impress: she is honest, kind, and energetic.
