For me, Real Estate is more than selling houses; it is about listening to my clients and understanding their wants and needs. I have worked my entire employment history in the customer service sector, and have therefore gained the knowledge and experience to guarantee client satisfaction. From starting out as a professional photographer in Ottawa to moving back to Nova Scotia, working as a writer and in marketing at a local paper. These skills were a major asset for me when I started my Real Estate career 15 years ago.
In the volunteer sector, I have had much success at grant writing, statistical research and community development which also allows me to excel at providing buyers with all the knowledge, options and a level of comfort in order for them to make informed choices in the buying process. My love of the small quaint communities, that Nova Scotia is famous for, led to a passion for promoting and marketing whilst organizing numerous community events and projects over the years.
I was one of the first agents on the South Shore to do real video tours, to have a You Tube channel, a point2agent site and utilize a wide range of social media platforms to promote myself and my listings. Thus evolved my tag lines “Get Connected with Dawn” and “Find Me, Find your Property”.
I have 3 amazing children, Scout, Sophie and Ben at home, along with Andy, a wired fox terrier, (and a few too many cats). I still enjoy volunteering, especially with children with disabilities and sports. When I have time, I play volleyball, softball, badminton, though not very well. I also enjoy riding my motorbike as much as I can.
Don’t let my laid back personality and love of laughter, overshadow the fact that I am knowledgeable, have an attention for detail and the experience that comes with selling real estate for 15 years. My favourite part of selling real estate is the people I meet and life-long friends I make. Especially wonderful, is being able to help and be a part of this major event in my clients lives.
