Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $2.375M in La Playa, San Diego, CA.

It’s been said that one of the most important financial decisions that you can make in life is buying or selling a home. If that’s true then choosing the right Realtor to represent your interest is equally important. For that reason I select a Realtor like I would select a Heart Surgeon. When I decided to sell my $2.3+ million dollar home in Point Loma I interviewed three of the top realtor’s in the area and after a lot of investigation and careful consideration I selected Dawn Leahy of Sotheby’s Realty. I chose Dawn for five reasons they were: 1. She came to our interview armed with a very impressive portfolio of the marketing collateral that she had developed for her past sales and a comprehensive marketing plan. 2. She had a very impressive list of high end past sales where she negotiated some of the highest selling prices per square foot in the area. 3. She had a track record of being willing to spend the necessary dollars on marketing including publications like Dream Homes. 4. She had a wide network of contacts and resources both locally and internationally that would be critical to finding a buyer in the higher end of the market. 5. Lastly, (and I can’t emphasis enough how important this was in my transaction) She demonstrated in her past sales a willingness to take on any challenges arising during the course of the sale and doggedly pursue a solution. In my case several issues that came along could have and probably would have been deal stoppers if anyone else was handling the Deal. Dawn promised to give her best effort if I entrusted her with handling the sale of my home and she did exactly that. She, secured an offer from a qualified buyer in two weeks of listing the house, got me the highest selling price that I could hope for, handled all of the contingency issues and closed the deal on schedule. There might be other Realtor’s in San Diego on Dawn’s level but I guarantee that there are none better.

Sincerely Dan Farnsworth

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $200K in North Park, San Diego, CA.

Dawn is an awesome agent in every respect. I had a bad experience in the past when I originally bought my condo when I felt my agent wasn't really looking out for my best interest. Before moving out of San Diego, I decided to interview a few agents while I was still in town so that I'd be ready when it came time to sell it (I rented it out for a few years). Dawn definitely was my top choice based on professionalism, efficiency, expertise in her field, integrity, and her personal touch.

When I called her years later, she remembered everything about me, my condo, my last name, my cat, etc. I was very impressed! She was so efficient and conscientious during the entire process. Really effective. I walked away feeling like we had done a good, honest transaction together for all involved. I am a tough critic, but I was thoroughly happy w/Dawn. She was so knowledgeable about her field. It was clear she has had tons of experience and really cares about her clients. I highly recommend her and am so grateful I found her!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Encinitas, CA.

We were recommended Dawn from a friend and we feel greatly indebted to them for such a wonderful referral. We actually had several referrals from friends to well-established agents, as is probably the case for most, and we weren't originally sure how to decide who was the right fit. Well, as soon as we reached out, it was obvious that Dawn was head and shoulders above the others. Right from the start, Dawn was able to get a feel for our needs as buyers. For us, we needed part agent, part educator, part friend. We were very lucky to find Dawn.

As an agent, Dawn is steps ahead of every situation and got us ready to be competitive in an uber-competitive market (houses were going in 48 hours!). Her web of contacts and ability to work with other parties in any deal is very impressive. With Dawn, we felt very comfortable that we had everything covered at all times, even in extremely short notice. Dawn also worked all hours if needed....we basically can't say enough good things about her abilities as an agent, first class. Her website was also the only trustworthy source of real-time information on houses that hit or left the market and gave us an advantage over other buyers.

Now once we got the home, there is NO WAY we should have been able to close in the 3 weeks we were given, but Dawn worked her magic down to the last hour, and we were in as scheduled. Through the whole process, we felt that Dawn was invested just as much as we were in finding the right house and getting it when we did. Of course, we know this is how agents are paid, but you can tell when it is more than that, and with Dawn you always feel that she is in it with you.

If you are fortunate enough to have stumbled onto this review or others of Dawn, congratulations, you should absolutely give her a call. You won't find a better match of expertise, personality, and effort.
