Dawn provided me with outstanding service in the sale of my parents' home. I live in MN and hadmoved my folks from their home in NJ to an assisted living facility in CT, and I could not remain in NJ tooversee the total sale process. Dawn handled the myriad details, from the multiple offers and thecontract negotiations to the multiple inspections and the last minute aggravations, with total aplomb.She continually provided me with updates when appropriate and responded to my inquiries in a verytimely manner. She is enthusiastic, responsive, friendly, knowledgeable, resourceful, and thorough.Working with her was definitely a superlative experience!- Diane - Wyckoff
We received 21 offers within three days of the house being listed, with two offers exceeding 25% ofour asking price. It was way beyond our hopes and expectations. My sister and I are both out of town,and Dawn helped immensely with obtaining all of the Town certificates and inspections, saving us alot of travel time and expense. Thanks Dawn!!- Curtis - Wyckoff
Dawn was great, she gave us great advice and was very honest. She helped us sell our condo for morethen the appraised value and went above and beyond to prove the worth of our home. On the sellingend she took into account all the things that we said we want/needed/desired and showed us a bunchof houses that fit our criteria. She responded very efficiently to both emails and phone calls andwalked us through the entire process and was there whenever we needed her. I would recommendDawn to anyone who is looking to buy/sell or both.- Michael and Jill - Mahwah
Dawn is very sweet and easy to work with. She has knowledge of the market as it stands today. Willalways answer your phone call within the hour. Always checks in to see how we're doing. She's toughwhen needed.- Deborah - Mahwah
Dawn was very professional but at the same time had a personal touch to her approach in helping herclients find their ideal home. I highly recommend Dawn to anyone who is interested in buying orselling in the North NJ/Bergen County area.- Tracy - River Vale
Dawn was incredible. We have a lot of experience buying and selling homes. We had listed thisparticular home once before and when Dawn took over the listing, she REVOLUTIONIZED our listingand approach. We were blown away by her energy, tenacity, and innovations! She set a new standardthat blew our previous experiences away. She staged our home herself, investing incredible time andenergy into it and had new photographs taken that were extraordinary. Our friends and family couldnot believe the difference when compared to the earlier listing. She aggressively marketed the house, and went beyond the extra mile in coming up with creative ways to do this! She was also incredibly professional and kind throughout the entire process. Integrity and honesty in the process were extremely important to me and Dawn was an incredible negotiator and sales person with complete integrity and an approach that I really admired and could feel comfortable and good about. I can't say enough good things about her. And we worked with Dawn again for a purchase!- Cora - Haworth
Being first time home buyers, my husband and I had NO CLUE what we were doing. Dawn wasrecommended by friends of ours and we're so glad they did. We have busy schedules and travel a lot,but she was still emailing and calling us about opportunities even when we were away! She found ournew home before it went on the market; which gave us a great leg up in the process. She guided notpushed us through the negotiating process and answered all of our non stop questions. Once we had won the bidding process Dawn sprung into action, calling all the different contractors we needed toget quotes on what needed to be done on the house in order to ask for the credit from the seller. Sheorganized everything with reputable, professional contractors (many of whom we used to do thework). And it was done in record time. From finding the house to closing was barely 2 months! Herteam of mortgage lenders, home insurance brokers, contractors and lawyers were STELLAR. I can'temphasize that enough. Looking for the houses is one thing, but having all the legal and bureaucraticstuff taken care of with such professional and seasoned people make the whole thing so much lessstressful. Thank you, Dawn for everything we are so appreciative of all of your hard work and can'twait to enjoy our new home. :)- Luci and Sarah - Ridgewood
Dawn is a premier real estate agent. If you are looking to sell your home, Dawn can do it withelegance. We listed with Dawn after an incredible recommendation from our neighbors. He said, Sheis the best, give her a call. Well he couldnt have said it better and after our first meeting with Dawnwe knew she was the one. Selling is all about presentation and Dawn did an incredible job staging andtaking pictures that pulled buyers through the front door. Essentially, she transformed our propertyinto a palace. In addition, she was very respectful of our property and made herself availablethroughout the entire process to discuss offers, showings, etc. Its hard to find a great agent like thisand we are very grateful to have worked with her in selling our home. If you want to sell your homeand you want top dollar, Dawn is your only choice!- Brandon - Mahwah
Extremely thorough and excited about your listing your home.took care in staging home and offeredmany suggestions to get more money and options available to us which Really worked for us big time.- Jeanne Goetting - Ho-Ho-Kus
Dawn is a marketing expert and goes the extra mile for giving homes maximum exposure. For example, makes suggestions for properly staging your home for sale. She then uses professional photographers to take photographs for marketing materials. Dawn is very hard working and a lovely person to work with. She is a go getter and makes things happen! For example she holds numerous Open Houses and follows up with all potential buyers. Dawn has a strong gage on the market and is realistic when pricing homes. She has good relationships with other realtors and forms strong partnerships. Dawn is a real pro and gives her all to getting homes sold!- Rena - Franklin Lakes
Dawn is a tireless worker with a great temperament and personality. Her knowledge of real estate is very obvious as soon as you talk to her. She is always upbeat and smiling. She is everything you could ask for in a realtor!- Joe - Glen Rock

Dawn is awesome, she is super friendly and attentive to your needs. I have used her on 3 transactions and everytime has been smooth throughout the whole process. She explains everything in detail and gives great advice. I dont know how many people can say this but I love my agent. She comes highly recommended- Harrold - Paramus
Me and my husband Steve interviewed several other agents and we felt that Dawn Braithwaite was the most honest and she did her work and showing us on paper the details in how we would prosper with her in selling our lovely beautiful home. She supported our vision in selling and moving forward from our home, and was available to brainstorm ideas to get us sold quickly. From beginning to end she proved to us that she was always our first and best choice!- Steve and Charmaine - Franklin Lakes
Dawn was knowledgeable, reliable, and professional. We realized very early in the selling experience that communication with your agent is paramount. Dawn was always available and extremely helpful. Dawn is a true professional in every sense.- Paul - Franklin Lakes
Dawn handled the entire transaction from appraisal/listing, home preparation, photography, open house, receiving offer (within 3 days at over asking), contract, attorney review, contingency repairs, final walk through to closing. Dawn does it all so thoroughly that both my attorney and myself agreed that we happily wrote out her check for her commission. She is worth every penny. A true Real Estate Professional.- Tom - Ridgewood
Dawn helped us navigate a relocation from out of state. She is high energy, extremely responsive, and knows her market. She is a pleasure to partner with. I highly recommend working with her.- Amy - Ridgewood
Dawn was amazing to work with. If it wasnt for Dawn my fathers house would still be on the market. She always followed up with potential buys and kept us in the loop regarding status of discussions. She knew when to push and when to lay low. She was always willing to help and really knows how to make sure the closing happens in a timely manner!- Anne - Franklin Lake
I would absolutely recommend Dawn as a realtor. She walked us through each step of selling our Franklin Lakes home. Every detail was executed with precision. We were extremely impressed with the marketing of our home. Dawn was able to showcase our home and it looked amazing online. She also found us the right buyer and successfully negotiated the selling price. We relocated before the closing and Dawn handled everything! She is very knowledgeable and we are truly grateful to have chosen her to represent us.- Toni - Franklin Lakes
Dawn was truly a godsend. We had listed our house for sale and in 6 months not one offer. It was very discouraging. I found Dawn through a friend and when we met with her she was so knowledgeable and sweet. We hired her and she was a joy to work with. Dawn was like the energizer Bunny of real estate!! She staged our house so beautifully that it sold in 1 month !! From start to finish Dawn was truly amazing. If you want a great real estate agent who puts 100% of her heart and soul into your sale then call Dawn!! Cant say enough wonderful things about her and her team. ????????- Joanne - Mahwah
Dawn is an exceptional realtor. Before selling our house we did our homework on top realtors and after interviewing a few people, we selected Dawn. From day 1 she was on it and never missed a beat. Her follow up was impeccable and she was extremely responsive no matter when or what.Our house sold in the first week and we know it was because of all of the pre-work before it hit the market. We would highly recommend Dawn, she is a highly skilled and motivated individual and her service to her clients is above and beyond. Thank you for everything Dawn. Dawn was truly a godsend.

Dawn is very focused on her client's needs, very personable and professional and easy to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable of the processes and a good negotiator in resolving issues. She made the selling of our home very easy and eliminated many of the stress issues. It was a pleasure working with Dawn and would recommend her to others.- John & Barbara - Waldwick
I can't say enough great things about Dawn! She is very knowledgeable and has always been available to answer any questions we had. She made a process that was a stressful as smooth as possible. We had placed an offer on our home, contingent on us selling our apartment. Not only did she encourage us and eased our minds about the process, but she also did the same with the sellers and kept them always informed of everything that was going on on our end. I truly wish she would have sold our apartment also because there is no other realtor like Dawn, who take the time to communicate with the buyers and sellers and who actually assist in the process. I can't thank her enough for everything she did and continues to do for us. I would recommend Dawn to ANYONE.- Jesus - Waldwick, NJ
My husband and I began hunting for our first home in the late summer of 2009. Unfamiliar with Bergen County and feeling pressure to move quickly (I was four months pregnant), we knew that wed be quite reliant on our Realtor to navigate the market, offer lots of advice, and take the lead. Thank goodness we found Dawn!From the first time we met her, Dawn was continually professional, energetic and personable. She spent a significant amount of time preparing before each of our visits(providing us with house details & maps) so that our search would be efficient and effective. Not only did she answer our questions and address our concerns when they arose, but she also made knowledgeable recommendations on how to renovate and expand some of the older homes we were interested in.We did eventually find the perfect home for our growing family and Im happy and pleased with the care and patience that dawn dedicated to our search. She is definitely someone who will work very hard to help find the right home foe you and your family!Sincerely,Laura(Ridgewood NJ)- Laura A.
Dawn is truly a professional.During the process of purchasing our new homeand completing the construction, Dawn voluntarily wore many hats.The contribution of her time helping us work with our builder and going the extra distance made our final purchase perfect and stress free.Dawn listened to exactly what we wanted and only presented options that met our criteria.Having worked with other realtors that disappear after a contract is signed, Dawn has proven herself to be a person who truly cares about her clients and will go the extra mile for them.- Rick and Meg M.
Dear Dawn,We want to thank you once again for all your hard work in selling our New Jersey house. You are a model agent and we will recommend you to any of our friends up there when they get ready to sell their house. I know this is a tough economy and market, so we feel really fortunate that we chose you to get the job done. We had our share of frustrating moments while on the market, but you were always there problem solving and responsive to our needs and concerns. Thank you for all you did.Thank you too for the gift for our new home. The wines were delicious and we will love using the decanter and think of you each time we do. That was so thoughtful of you.I apologize that it has taken so long to get this letter out to you. The job of moving and then settling in was very time consuming and exhausting, and were just now starting to see the light of day!! We love being back in Georgia and our new home is great. I promise that I will take some pictures soon so you can get an idea of what we bought.Again, many thanks to you. We hope you have a very Happy Holiday Season!With our sincere appreciation,Mike and Eileen- Mike and Eileen R.
Beginning in the spring of 2009 my wife and I began a search in the Bergen County area for a Home to move into with our two young children and two dogs. Our search was a unique challenge as the market was a terribly disjointed market where pricediscovery was becoming more of an art than a science given the recent market events that began in early 2008. Our price range was 1.2502mm dollars.Victoria and I have bought and sold several homes over our 17 years together but never had we had the stress associated with this particular move. Our two boys were under the age of 3 and our lease was expiring on in September.We, at the beginning of our search, were working with another agent before meeting Dawn Braithwaite at an open house in Ramsey, NJ. Upon meeting Dawn we made her our exclusive agent. She impressed us in many ways. Dawns organizationalskills, time management, intuition as to our needs, and her great ability to listen are what compelled us to join her team in finding our home.Dawn quickly began the search for us and we quickly started to feel more comfortable that we would find the house of our dreams and didnt feel rushed. She gave us good advice, as to our lease situation, which bought us time in regards toour search. We felt more in control with Dawn being on our team.As certain homes became interesting to us the price discovery issue loomed quite large. The gap between buyers and sellers expectations in 2009 was the largest perhaps ever in the real estate business (especially in the > 1.5mm dollar range).We found 3 homes that we made offers on which we walked away from on Dawnsadvice as the sellers were unrealistic as to the current market value (these homes remain unsold in 2011).We finally settled on two homes in Ridgewood, NJ. We were making an offer on one but then decided to seek Dawns advice on a dream home but one that seemingly was over our budget. Dawn had done some extensive market analysis and gave usconfidence that we could be aggressive and go for it as the sellers were motivated in her opinion.We got the house of our dreams for 1.710mm dollars and couldnt be happier. If it wasnt for meeting Dawn we would be in a much less desirable neighborhood with a smaller property and house. Dawn Braithwaite through her tireless love for thebusiness and people far exceeded our expectations. We would and do recommend Dawn Braithwaite to anyone looking for a home.Sincerely,David and Victoria (Ridgewood NJ)- David and Victoria P.
Dear Dawn,Thank you so much for all your help, support and hard work that went into selling our house in Ramsey and buying another in Ho-Ho-Kus. Your staging, extra touches, floor plan and DVD are examples of just how much effort you put into your work. In these tough economic times, you made sure the house was in the best condition and you gave us good counsel to achieve a sale.Always professional, energetic, cheerful and patient, you worked tirelessly with us to find the home we were looking for. We were very happy to work with you and are happy to know you. We would recommend you to anyone looking for a dedicated, capable and exceptional Realtor.Best,MaryBeth and Henry (Ramsey and Ho-Ho-Kus NJ)- MaryBeth and Henry R.
Dear Dawn,I want to express to you how so fortunate I feel, to have had you as our listing agent and how wonderful it was working with you. When I chose you it was strictly on a gut feeling and you proved me right. My home received so much exposure through you because you are so well liked among your peers, and your remarkable talent for politicking impelled other agents to want to show my home. The exposure was tremendous! I want to thank you for being there through all phases of selling our home and for the many times you went above and beyond, to make sure things went smoothly.The bidding war, my home went into, which is every sellers dream, was due to your deep understanding of the real estate market and your negotiating capabilities, your actions produced ultimate results for us. Out of the 3 couples bidding, your intuitive business sense guided me to choose the right couple to make the deal with. I will be forever grateful. Thank you Dawn.Best regards,Diane (Ridgewood NJ)- Diane S.
Dear Dawn,Lee and I wanted to express our sincere thanks for the way you managed the sale of our home. Since this was not the first time we sold a home, we were familiar with working with other realtors. Without a doubt, you are by far the best, most professional agent we have ever had the pleasure to work with.No detail was left unnoticed and your market analysis was extensive and above our expectations. Given the housing market at the time of our sale in 2010, we feel it was not just the home but your efforts in marketing our home that got us multiple offers and above our asking price. You had our best interests first and foremost and it showed in every aspect. You made yourself available to us and kept us posted and updated especially during the home inspection period, which can be a stressful part of the negotiations.Thank you for making the process of selling our home as stress free as possible and for your well organized, thoughtful endeavor.We wish you only continued success!Best wishes,Lee and Kathleen- Lee and Kathleen S.
Dear Dawn,I wanted to take a moment now that the real estate dust has cleared to say THANK YOU for all of your efforts as my real estate agent to sell my home in Ho-ho-kus. As a neighbor and a friend, you knew how attached I was to the house after 10 years and countless projects and you guided me to a sale that got the price I needed to be able to let it go. I really appreciated your advice and guidance in staging and organizing the house prior to putting it on the market and then guiding me through the sales process until we got a sale. You were so helpful putting together open houses and making suggestions to make the house show its best and in the end I know all of your attention to detail made a difference to allow me to get a buyer who would appreciate the house and all of its charm.I know it wasnt easy to bring the suggestions to adjust the price and yet you did your homework each time and made solid recommendations to make sure the house stayed top of mind to the buyers in the area. All of your marketing efforts really paid off as well I especially liked that you had the floor plans for the house available for prospective buyers both in the hard copy marketing materials and on the website. Dawn, you seem to really have a gift for being a realtor and I know you will continue to be successful given the drive and energy you put into every aspect of the process. Even in a difficult market youve shown that you have what it takes to make sales happen!Thanks again for everything!All the best,Sandra(Ho-Ho-Kus NJ)- Sandra K.
My Realtor.Dawn Braithwaite was recommended to me by my former husband, who had expressed hiscomplete satisfaction with her help in selling his house.After signing on with Dawn, I also found that she was very helpful in her presentation of my condostaging it and bringing in plants to enhance the appearance and by taking beautiful pictures. She was always considerate of my needs and was able to sell my condo in a short period of time.I was impressed by the fact that she always answered my phone calls immediately and was always cheerful in all our conversations.I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of selling or buying a house.Yours truly,Hilda(Mahwah NJ)- Hilda B.
