Ratings & Reviews

I rented this property with a small group 4 years ago. She took our entire deposit and gave us a receipt for items she had to buy to "replace or fix" things that were broken. She had put white out on some items on the receipt so we could not read what she had purchased. She said she spent most of the deposit on spraying the property for fleas. She had no receipt for this and our dog to this day has never had flees. We wanted to do a walk though before we left town but she couldn't be reached. She waited in till we left before she Told us she was keeping our entire deposit. It's a nice property and has a very nice location and nice neighbors. The only problem is Dasha Rae is a crook.

Sorry you feel this way, I know it was close to 4 years ago and you may not remember exactly what happened. Yes the property was a nice place with brand new furniture. I didn’t charge you for anything you or your party didn’t damage or destroy. I don't just charge tenants without documented reasons/proof of damage/repairs needed and all charges are documented I want nothing more than to return peoples deposit and have many past tenants that can testify to that. As for the dog you say has no fleas, we had to have it sprayed (multiple times) and took pictures of the fleas on a person (at the property). You were also given a receipt for the spray and also given pictures of the property when you rented it and when you left it (and can clearly see that it wasn’t left in the same condition or even close to it. If you didn’t want to get charged for the property being sprayed you should have made sure that the place wasn’t infested with FLEAS.

Dasha has been extremely helpful in my home search. Even with a limited budget and limitations due to VA loan requirements as to how little "fixer-up" it can be,what types of homes, associations etc.. We are still on the hunt but I feel safe with Dasha. My first home purchase the realtor told me not to get an inspection and for 12years we had to deal with the ramifications of that intentionally bad advice. I look forward to emails ,calls and texts with new finds.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Key West, FL.

We had to sell our townhouse and since we were out of state, Dasha was able to take control of the sale and make it happen. We were happy for her help and glad she was able to do what she could working with us out of state! She was able to stay with the buyers until all of the issues were resolved and handled in our favor. Since we had inherited the townhouse we also had inherited some of it's problems and Dasha was able to help with those issues. Should we ever purchase a house in the area again we will not hesitate to call on her again.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Key West, FL

I'm not working with Dasha right now, since my move to Key West will be in late fall 2014, however I was extremely impressed with her responsiveness to my inquiry and her professionalism. I plan to work with Dasha this fall. I live out of town, but I am familiar with the Key West area, but having a responsive agent is key to secure the long term rental (lease for 2 years or longer at minimal) or to purchase a condo via an FHA loan that I want. I want to work with someone like Dasha, I feel she will have my best interest at the fore front. Please note the service provided drop down list does not contain my service, I had to select None, we connected, but it did not work out - my service situation should read: None, we connected, obtained information I was looking for!

She is an excellent resource. Very reliable and knowledgeable. And she is very upfront - I can count on her to tell me like it is; when something is a good deal, what things to look for, and what the local area is like.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Key West, FL.

I came to Key West 6 months ago to look for investment property and I had a very specific requirements quite difficult to meet. Mrs. Ray made everything possible to accommodate me on a very short notice. Thou I found a property I liked, the seller did not accept my price. Having in mind my needs, Mrs. Ray continued working on my behalf and located a property meeting my needs. We have just closed on it and are excited to have a place in Key West. Her knowledge of the local market and personal connections made it possible. With no hesitation I will recommend Mrs. Dasha Ray to anyone with serious intentions seeking to acquire / sell property in the Key West area.

Sold a home in 2012 in Bay Point, FL 33040.

I had the pleasure of working with Dasha Ray shortly after my divorce. Dasha was able to make a very difficult time a lot easier. She was able to guide us in the right direction. At times I am sure it was not an easy thing for her. She was able to keep her cool and not take sides. Dasha was very professional and was very informative and knowledgable. After the sale of our home both my ex and I used Dasha to help buy separate condo's and I plan on using her to buy investment properties in the near future.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2012 in Tavernier, FL.

My experience with Dasha Ray was awful. I found her on zillow and had her list my house for sale. She never even came out to my house to look at the property, take pictures or give advice on what to do to make the house more appealing to possible buyers. In the six months I had a contract with her she called me one time to ask if she could bring clients by the next day to see the house, I asked her if it was possible to give me a little more time then the 10 hour notice she gave me, and if not then they could come when they had the time. She then told me she would call me back after she spoke to the clients to see if they could come look at the house later in the day, I never heard back from her. I also asked from the very beginning of the contract to have a "for sale" sign put up in front of my house since there is a lot of traffic from people going to the park and boat ramp at the end of my road. I asked her at least four times and she said she would have one put up right away but during the six months it never happened. I also asked Dasha Ray to please put in the description on Zillow and other sites, including the MLS all of the extras the neighborhood had to offer and the other big selling points the house has, she said she would but never did. The only pictures she put up are ones I took and emailed her. She also was very quick to take down my pictures off Zillow after the six month contract was up. In fact, thats about the only thing she did in a timely manner, She never called me or sent me anything letting me know the contract was up, but I'm guessing its because she knew I was not planning on wasting anymore time with her NOT doing anything to get my house sold. She was very unprofessional, no communication and she made excuses for everything she did, or should I say did not do. I could have done a better job selling my house. To have only one person even ask to look at the house in six months is a good indication of her work ethic. In fact if you look at the reviews on Zillow, the negative ones are from real people while the positive ones seem made up or even admit in the title she didn't sell the house she had listed. Sellers beware you don't get stuck with a contract with this "so called" realtor. That's a minimum of six months you will not get back or get your house sold. There are good realtors out there that will work very hard to get your house sold but its very clear Dasha Ray is not one of them. I am aware that Dasha will come back with a response, as she did with the other negative feedback she received, but that just goes to show how she really does just make up excuses and is unprofessional.
