Tell us about your experience with
Dawn Rushton

  • Dawn listed and sold my home

      Knowledgeable Energetic Caring On top of all aspects

    • We highly recommend The Dawn Rushton Group. They are very hardworking, professional, and knowledgeable. We were downsizing from a tri-level to a rambler. They gave us excellent advice on preparing our home to sell and staged it to perfection. As a result our home sold quickly. Around the same time Dawn Rushton found us a home of our dreams. Thank you Dawn Rushton Group!!

      - Bill L, Kent
    • Dawn guided us through a home sale almost 30 years ago. In the mean time we have lived and shared in this community and when the time came this spring to sell our home we could not imagine any other agent more equipped to do the job. Of particular appeal to us is Dawn's professional manner, intuitive knowledge of the market and her ability to expertly price and attract the exact buyers we needed to get out home sold within 4 days. It was a powerful and magical experience that left us free to concentrate on our new life and rejoice in the rewards of having chosen to work with Dawn again.

      - Diana M, Kent
    • We have used Dawn to sell several of our properties for us. We moved away from the Seattle area 10 years ago but when it was time to sell our rental there we went directly to Dawn. Her guidance and industry experience helped us to undertake a renovation before selling to get top dollar. Dawn and her staff were key in helping us find dependable contractors to help us with the process. Dawn was available every step of the way to counsel us in certain decisions. Her strategy for going to market was brilliant and resulted in 4 offers within a week and the offer we accepted was well over asking! Having someone with experience and knowledge to help you through this process is key! I recommend Dawn and her staff without hesitation!

      - Shari S, Renton
    • I used Dawn 9 years ago when i was looking to purchase. was so impressed that i knew i would use her again if/when i decided to sell. i did and was equally impressed with her dealings from that end. Would use Dawn's service again without any hesitation.

      - Carmen P, Auburn
    • I have engaged Dawn for two house sales and two house purchases. When it comes to negotiation I wouldnt want anyone but Dawn negotiating on my behalf, she is excellent! I want her opinion not only on if the house is solid but is it a good investment. Is the area growing or declining. Dawn explains the legal mumbo jumbo of contracts and offers in terms that you can understand. She has even called me back when she was on vacation in France, even though we didnt have a deal in the works yet. You simply can do no better than asking Dawn Rushton to be your agent.

      - Jan S, Enumclaw
    • Working with Dawn through the full process of selling and buying our houses was truly exceptional. She is fully prepared for all parts of the process and impressed us greatly even before we made the choice in Realtor. While interviewing others, she was the only one who came prepared with estimates, info, plans etc. and spent 2 hours of her time with us, not knowing if she'd win our business or not. After being in contract with Dawn, she prepared really well with not only the logistical awareness and challenges to be faced, but also the emotional side of everything. We had A LOT of questions as well as first-time seller fears, etc. and Dawn was consistently wonderful in talking us through all with great patience and with genuine care. Dawn was really great at representing our needs and requirements to the new buyers of our old house and the builder / contractor of our new house. We felt like she truly understood us even more than we did ourselves! Would definitely recommend Dawn!

      - Dianne S, Maple Valley
    • We have used the Dawn Rushton Group for multiple sales and purchases now, and will continue to refer family and friends to her in the future. Each experience, either buying or selling a home has been so very easy in what can be a very stressful situation. Dawn has superior knowledge of the local area and has a good pulse on what the market will bear for either your sale or purchase. She is efficient & organized and deeply cares about her clients. You can always call her with any questions you have - big or small - and she will respond quickly. She has good input on preparing your home for sale and has the ability and resources to stage your home if needed for getting top dollar for your sale. On the buying end, she will work hard to find you exactly what you need. Dawn is a top negotiator and will make sure your offer is written completely and with your best interests at heart. We are equally impressed with her assistants who are friendly and responsive. We highly recommend Dawn!

      - Kc E, Covington
    • As a home seller I searched the internet to find a listing of the best professional real estate agents in my area. I discovered a comparative listing of 5 superior agencies. The data further indicated that The Dawn Rushton Group had outsold all the others by at least a factor of two to one or considerably greater.

      - Earnest G, Federal Way
    • Dawn Rushton is so darn helpful, professional, and knowledgeable, she's spoiled me for any other agent. My business is real estate investments so I'm extremely demanding and high maintenance. But Dawn always has time for me and my transaction needs.

      - Joe T, Kent
    • Want to thank Dawn and the whole team for their attention to detail, and helping us through the sale of the house! Their knowledge and know-how to get things done made this whole experience easy. Their planning, and communication, on every detail and step of the process took the fear and anxiety out of the whole experience! I would recommend them 100%

      - Michelle O, Maple Valley
    • Dawn and her team were amazing to work with! The patience they showed with us while we wavered back and forth between options was so refreshing. If you are looking for a house in the Maple Valley / Covington / Enumclaw / Bonney Lake / Anywhere actually area, I would highly recommend The Dawn Rushton Real Estate Group!

      - Cisco M, Bonney Lake
    • We want to thank Dawn and the entire team for the amazing support throughout the sale process. From the beginning to the very last day of closing we always felt in good hands and couldnt be happier with all the support we got. Having a trustworthy, reliable and good communicating partner was very important to us since we moved to the East Coast before the house was listed. We could not have asked for a better partner helping us to get through this transaction. Very well organized, diligent , excellent communication and attention to detail are only a few of the attributes we learned to appreciate. They made our live as sellers easy and we didnt have to worry about anything despite being thousands of miles away. We can highly recommend Dawn and her team and would hire her again without hesitation.

      - Pascal M, Kent
    • Dawn Rushton and her team went above and beyond to help my husband and I sell our two separate homes, and buy our first home together in the first months of the pandemic. Her years of experience and vast knowledge of the business made a daunting task a wonderful experience. Every transaction was seamless and her teams attention to detail were unparalleled. Thank you Dawn Rushton group for making our dream a reality!

      - Rachel H, Maple Valley
    • In the age of DIY culture, there are a few things that I believe you should always leave it to the professionals, like teeth straightening and buying a house! Dawn and her team's expertise helped us to avoid life time of regrets and headaches. Coloring your own hair? Yes. Buying or selling a house? Call Dawn! You will not regret it!

      - Cathy I, Auburn
    • Dawn Ruston helped me purchase my home 20 years ago and she and her team helped me sell my home this fall. She's very knowledgeable of the local market and they were readily available to to answer questions and clearly explained the process and all the legal documents. The staging and pictures were top quality! I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and the ease of selling my home with their assistance. You can't go wrong if you choose the Dawn Rushton team for your real estate needs.

      - Anne M, Kent
    • I can't say enough good things about Dawn. She listed our home and helped us with the purchase of our new place through a very difficult time for me. She was right there for me every time I needed anything. She made everything go as smoothly as possible. I would highly recommend Dawn.

      - Joyce W, Kent
    • Dawn is one of the top two realtors we have ever had the pleasure of working with. In our lives, we strive to work with people of integrity and of strong moral character. It was also important to us that the buyer knew the realtor who represented our sale was not only professional but ethical. Dawn knows the market and how to sell your house! Dawn strongly advocated for our interests and acted as a partner on our behalf. We met with her in September the year before we moved and she set up a rough timeline. Whenever we had a question or needed a referral to assist getting the house ready, she was very helpful connecting us with her resources. We adjusted the moving time frame based on her knowlege and recommendations. She helped us time the selling market perfectly to get the highest return on our investment. You can find a realtor who will tell you to do nothing and the house will sell or you can hire Dawn and her team and they will sell your house at top dollar to great people.

      - Roseanne G, Maple Valley
    • We met with Dawn about selling our home and she provided us with excellent information relative to home sales in our area and a great strategy for selling our home. She took great pictures resulting in numerous home showings in the first few days, ultimately resulting in several excellent above list price offers. She helped us decide on the best offer and we closed quickly with no issues. We would definitely recommend her and her company for any real estate needs.

      - Jackie F, Auburn
    • Dawn not only helped us sell our house. She advised us on how to get our house ready for sale so that we could get top dollar. She took amazing pictures. Within a day of going on the market, our house was considered a hot house. We got multiple offers to review and one was perfect. My husband and I highly recommend her. If you follow her advice, she will help your house put its best foot forward.

      - Leah O, Kent
    • I have been watching Dawn's signs around the Kent area for over 20 years. I always said, "When I sell my home, I am going to use her!" I got the chance to do just that, and I could not be happier. Dawn and her team are so knowledgeable based on years of experience, and gave great advice on what to do to my flipper home to make it most appealing, where to price it, and which offer was the best overall. We had amazing results after she staged it and marketed it. Three days filled with showings and multiple offers after all said and done. This team communicates so well, so you never wonder what's going on in the process. They are very, very professional, yet I know I am always part of the Dawn Rushton family, not just a sale. I am in sales myself and understand the importance of the relationships I have made vs the income. Dawn clearly knows this too and will be a friend for life. Thank you Dawn!

      - Stan P, Tacoma
    • As a home seller I searched the internet to find a listing of the best professional real estate agents in my area. I discovered a comparative listing of 5 superior agencies. The data further indicated that The Dawn Rushton Group had outsold all the others by at least a factor of two to one or considerably greater. After trying initially to sell our own home, and then enlisting the service of a realtor whose business conduct became unacceptable, we finally contracted with The Dawn Rushton Group. From our initial encounter with her to the ultimate sale of our home, we could not have been more favorably impressed. We soon learned that the axiom action speaks louder than words, describe Dawn Rushton perfectly. Our initial contact with Dawn was at the beginning of the week. She managed to get our house listed during the week and had an acceptable offer that same weekend. Her continual guidance throughout the whole sales process could have not been more laudable. In summary we feel if one is seeking a Realtor with the highest ethical and professional standards, then consider the best of the best; which for us was, The Dawn Rushton Group.

      - Zillow review by Ernest and Linette Gaudet - Federal Way, WA
    • Dawn Rushton is one of the best Realtors in Washington! She is very professional, knowledgeable, informative, timely, kind and most of all trustworthy. She has helped me to sell and purchase a few homes which can be really stressful when its not your area of expertise. I highly recommend her to anyone, you will not be disappointed!

      - Zillow review by "amanda.howell" - Seattle, WA
    • Dawn Rushton sold a family property eight years ago. We were impressed with her diligence in getting the townhouse competitive and beating others on price and speed of sale. Now again in this down market her energy and acumen got to the best market price for our home, advised and rode herd on the necessary prep, and got 20 showings and a buyer within a month's time.

      - Zillow review by "user776889" - Seattle, WA
    • Being new to the area, I had been hoping to find an agent with knowledge of the market and area. I had contacted quite a few agents in my search and most wanted to send me a short list of ideas and if I didn't respond positively to any of them I wouldn't hear from them again. Then I found Dawn. Between my searching and her knowledge of the market (and above all her willingness to take time to look into the status of a house I may have located on my own) we were able to get me into a place I am very happy with. Dawn did a great job leading us through the negotiation process(Well not so much leading but pushing. She wasn't going to be happy until she knew the baby's room was ready for him when he came home form the hospital.... It was.

      - Zillow review by "TheronJ" - Kent, WA
    • I first met Dawn Rushton in 1998 when I asked her to help find a home for my children who were relocacting to this area from Los Angeles area. She was sucessful in finding and then negotating a great deal and got a quick turn around on getting into house when they needed to move. This past August I put my home on the market.with Dawn as the listing agent. I always knew after all the years she would be my agent. She had lots of suggestions and helpful advice. The house sold on the 3 rd day. Dawn knows a lot of people and knows the real estate markets in this area. So I would recommend Dawn any time.

      - Zillow review by "user4781410" - Maple Valley, WA
    • We are a military family and were moving to WA after having been stationed in GA. Through emails, we were able to communicate much of what we were looking for in a home. I flew out without my husband to house hunt with Dawn, and had very limited time to find a home. She was wonderful! Picked me up each day, already had a long list of homes to view and knew the area fairly well. As we searched, she intuitively understood what I would like and dislike about each home. There was a house in the stack that I had rejected but she pushed as worth looking at, and wouldn't you know, that was the home I fell in love with! However, Dawn didn't want to push me into a decision or to make a hasty choice or offer. We still saw a few homes and she had me wait until the next day to make our offer, after viewing the home a second time. I never felt any pressure and always felt very comfortable expressing what I wanted. Once the offer was accepted, it was truly in her hands since I returned to WA. Everything for closing went very smoothly and we had not a worry or issue, as she was even present for the inspection of the home. I'm sure most people find the process of buying a home very daunting, but with Dawn by our side, my family found the perfect place to live. We love our house, and the experience was hassle and stress free.

      - Zillow review by "Angela Havey" - Puyallup, WA
    • I hired Dawn to sell my home because she was the seller's Realtor when I purchased it. I was impressed and immediately thought of her when I wanted to sell. I was happy with the thorough explanations she gave regarding the process and the advice provided for staging the house. Dawn and Jessica's listing and flyers were beautiful and professional. The house sold in 18 hours at over the asking price. Getting to closing was more complex. Dawn and Jessica took care of every detail. I did not have to deal with any of the red tape and bureaucracy beyond notifying them of any issues that arose. Before I knew it, I had papers to sign and we closed without a hitch. I highly recommend Dawn and Jessica for selling your home or helping you purchase one. They are great!

      - Zillow review by "CarolynnMarcusSchwartz" - Maple Valley, WA
    • Dawn has helped us buy and sell a couple of homes. She is very knowledgeable about the process regardless of the type of listing, including short sales. She listens to what you want and works to find places to meet your needs. She does not try to sell you more than you can afford. If you are selling your home, she is very honest about the market value and what she believes is realistic, especially when she knows the buyer's expectations of what their house is worth are higher than the market will support. I have recommended her to others who have also raved about her and in turn recommended her to their friends and family. She is a no nonsense, proactive, result- oriented relator. Very refreshening.

      - Zillow review by "cbachik" - Auburn, WA
    • We have sold and purchased a home with Dawn and for both transactions she was great! Very professional, extensive knowledge, persistent and an overall great person. We highly recommend the Dawn Rushton Team.

      - Zillow review by "cool1003" - Maple Valley, WA
    • Dawn Rushton sold a house for me three years ago with an excellent outcome. Last month when I decided to look for a new house, I thought immediately of her. Dawn is very responsive, honest and really understands my needs and lifestyle. She gave me very good advice in many areas related to showing/staging the house etc. in addition, Dawn is a lovely person. She is a class act!!

      - Zillow review by "molli wilson" - Auburn, WA
    • Dawn and her team know the area very well. Their expert skill & knowledge made the buying and selling process effortless. I would highly recommend Dawn and her team for selling or buying a home.

      - Zillow review by "kathyaustin97" - Kent, WA
    • I WOULD USE DAWN AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT!! Honestly, I was very reluctant to use a realtor. I found all of the information I needed on Zillow -- well, I thought I did. After hours and hours of meeting with various realtors to view houses, I realized I was getting nowhere, fast. Then I met Dawn Rushton. She showed me a house that I requested. After seeing that I was not thrilled with it, she asked me a few questions to get a better understanding of my idea of a "perfect" house. She led me to a different location and showed me my dream home. Even though that particular house would not work for me, I knew right then and there that we could work well together. She began to send me listings, and gave me her honest opinion about the property, location, price, neighborhood amenities, etc. This was VERY helpful, because I was living about an hour away and I was 9 months pregnant. If I showed interest in a house, she was willing to stop by and do a "preview" to see if it was worth my time of driving out to see it. I can't tell you how much that helped me! One day, we found the one we had been looking for. She helped us through every step of the process like a seasoned professional. I appreciated all of the little "extra" things she did for us as well. She was always willing to let me look at the house again when I came into town, she helped to get a painter into the house, she checked on items that had been fixed by the seller before we moved in, she helped to keep us on track with the dates for things that needed to be done, she recommended brokers, movers... anything we needed - she was able to help. Dawn and her team even sent me a "congratulations" wish when I had my baby. This had nothing to do with the house, but it testifies of her character and dedication to a client. After we moved in, I had a problem that needed to be resolved with the title and escrow company. I simply asked her if she had any ideas how I could remedy the problem, and within a couple of hours -- SHE had it resolved. THAT is a perfect example of her work ethic. I will keep her name and number for that day when I need to sell my house. I recommend Dawn Rushton and her team to anyone needing a realtor. You won't be disappointed.

      - Zillow review by "user7421085" - Hobart/Maple Valley, WA
    • Dawn Rushton has bought and sold both my personal homes. I consider her to be amoung the most experienced and honest of real estate professionals. Dawn is the person you will want at your side through a sometimes long and lengthy process.

      - Zillow review by "user307289" - Kent, WA
    • Dawn and her Team made the preparation, listing, and sale of our home a seamless process. She provided solid advice on the timing and price for the sale of our home which resulted in a purchase contract being executed within a few days of the initial listing. From staging the house to negotiation of the sale she is the one to go with.

      - Zillow review by "carsonas" - Maple Valley, WA
    • I have used Dawn to sell and buy houses several times over the last 14 years. I have called Dawn numerous other times during that time when I thought I wanted to sell and buy but didn't. Dawn was always there when I called. If you want an agent who will call you back, who cares about the little details as much as you do and will honestly do everything in her power to help you then Dawn is the agent for you. If you want an agent who only seems to care about their commission and has no interest in responding to your calls or Emails when you really need some questions answered than I would go with someone else. Dawn's knowledge, professionalism and integrity is far above the industry standard. Whether you are buying a $100,000 or a 1 million dollar house Dawn will provide the same level service and attention to detail. I would not work with ANY other agent.

      - Zillow review by "smithmst" - Puyallup, WA
    • Dawn Ruston is Maple Valley's best realtor. She is smart, an excellent communicator and deeply empathetic. She skillfully assessed our property and provided us with the information we needed to NOT put our family home on the market in 2010, and to sell our house quickly at the right price in 2015. She clearly explained the process every step of the way, and managed a rather delicate buyer situation with the highest professional ethics. She was beside us every step of the way. Thank you, Dawn, for helping us through this huge life transition!

      - Zillow review by "user2031867" - Maple Valley, WA
    • This was the first time I've sold a house and I spoke to three realtors before settling on Dawn and she proved it the be the right decision through out the whole process. She was the most prepared from the start, knew the area intimately and guided me through the process masterfully. I highly recommend her!

      - Zillow review by "Jon Baker" - Covington, WA
    • My wife & I had been looking for a rambler in Maple Valley for a couple of years and hadn't had much luck. There are not a lot of modern ramblers in the area in the first place, and when they come available they usually sell immediately. We asked Dawn to find one for us and she stayed on top of it and let us know this spring the day one was listed. We went & looked at it that first day & Dawn helped us put together an offer and submit it before the For Sale sign was even up on the house. A cash offer from another buyer was submitted at the same time as ours so Dawn presented our offer in person and sold it to the listing agent and seller and we got the house. Couldn't have done it without her!

      - Zillow review by "goolson25" - Maple Valley, WA
    • Dawn, gave us the advise we needed and we changed our mind on selling our house at the beginning of 2015. She respected our decision and we listed in the Fall 2015. We sold our house during a 'difficult' time of the year to sell in less than 40 days. She and her team were available to us 14 hours a day which helped me because I work 2nd shift. I would recommend The Dawn Rushton Group to anyone thinking of selling or buying a house. They listen and will give you their honest opinion based on their depth of knowledge.

      - Zillow review by "zuser2015" - Auburn, WA
    • Dawn recently helped us sell our house. Dawn and her team were incredibly easy to work with and helped us market our house in the best way possible. She was able to sell our house in 1 day and when the first buyer backed out was able to find another full price offer within 24 hours. We will definitely be working with Dawn in the future and would highly recommend her and her team!!

      - Zillow review by "beckleb2"- Covington, WA
    • The Dawn Rushton Group has been helping both my husband and I AND our families with our real estate purchases and sales for numerous years! They sold us multiple homes over the past few years but have also helped both of our parents and my sister through several real estate transactions at different phases in our lives. In fact Dawn sold the the home that we currently live in to my husband's parents over 20 years ago! They have guided us through each step helping guide us through the ins and outs of buying and selling. When it was time to refinance they referred us so an amazing mortgage team as well. It's great to know that we have all their real estate knowledge and expertise at our disposal now and for the rest of our lives!

      - Zillow review by "user4679602" - Kent, WA
    • We enjoyed working with Dawn. We would recommend her. She was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. She was responsive and was always trying to help us find what we actually wanted.

      - Zillow review by "ericchanus" - Maple Valley, WA
    • Dawn is an outstanding agent. We needed to sell our Maple Valley home, yet no longer lived nearby. Dawn and Kylee handled everything! Dawn has deep expertise and knowledge of the market. This allowed her to guide us as to what improvements we needed to make before putting the home on the market. She helped to coordinate everything for us, so it was a painless process. Dawn did a very thorough market analysis in order to recommend a sales price. She was spot-on with the price and marketing of our home. We had two offers in 24 hours! We have bought and sold many, many homes, and Dawn ranks as one of the best agents we have worked with...professional, sharp, responsive and proactive. I highly recommend her.

      - Zillow review by "nonnahs" - Maple Valley, WA
    • Dawn has a lot of experience, and it shows on every level. She has an eye for detail, that is a wonderful asset for anyone looking for a home. We could have easily overlooked so many items, but Dawn had us covered in so many different ways. She has extensive knowledge of the area, and great connections at every turn. For example, we were very pleased with our home inspector (Nick), who was very knowledgeable, honest, and good at explaining everything. Our loan officer (Joe), was also very helpful, quick to respond, and our deal closed in a month. During the few times Dawn wasn't with us, we were accompanied by a member of her team, Kylie, who couldn't have been nicer, or more accommodating. Having a team that provided quick, competent service without pressure is a great help during a stressful time. We're very thankful we had Dawn and her team on our side.

    • With all of the preparation involved with a home sale, you'd be wise to do your research and consult with someone with the knowledge and ability to provide you with the proper information to help make the process as smooth as possible. I've known of Dawn from years past. Her having assisted in the sale of other family members homes, I was confident with her background and experience in having selected her as my listing agent. Her consideration of my personal situation was very much appreciated and that I'm thankful for. With all of the energies required for not only the sale aspect, the careful planning of the move process will be one that you'll not want to overlook... Be prepared...Thank you to Dawn

    • Dawn is an outstanding agent. She helped us list our house in Maple Valley, including providing excellent advice about updates, price, and helped to coordinate handymen etc. She knows the market inside and out, and always gave us objective advice and guidance. Dawn is one of the best agents we have ever worked with. I highly recommend her.

      - Zillow review by "Shannonmcorr" - Maple Valley, WA
    • Dawn Rushton is our real estate agent, and she has seen us through the last four homes, both purchasing and selling. She is extremely knowledgeable of what was going on in the market and stays abreast of the different areas we were interested in- from Kent, Black Diamond, Ravensdale to our latest move to North Bend. Dawn is professional through and through. She listened to all our wants/needs and worked within our budget to find us the perfect home, not just a house. With our limited budget and wanting to buy in North Bend where our son could stay in the school he so dearly loves, besides being a very hot market, and still Dawn found us the home well stay in for a long time to come. I think Dawn is a 5 star real estate agent and any client is in good hands when dealing with her.

      - Zillow review by "kittis euscher" - North Bend, WA
    • Our experience with the Dawn Rushton Group has been excellent. Per friend recommendation, Dawn helped us purchase our first home during the real estate decline and most recently our second home. Each time we were impressed by her knowledge, availability and honest opinions throughout the process. Dawn played a critical part for each purchase and was key to the success in getting not just competitive pricing but also keeping to the escrow timeline. There were a few hurdles on both houses , without Dawn and her group we would not likely have closed on either. The process of purchasing or selling a home regardless of personal experience always seems to be daunting and at times difficult. In the end what matters is being happy with the results, did you get a fair price and did you get the house you were looking for at the price range you can afford. Dawn was a key factor that allowed us to say yes to both. If and when we sell our current home and purchase again, without hesitation we will look to the Dawn Rushton Group for our transaction

    • It's not exaggeration to say that Dawn Rushton moved mountains to complete the sale of our home. My husband and I prepared our home for sale last summer and Dawn was one of many realtors that were recommended to us. We knew she was talented, direct, and hard working from our first meeting. Dawn is an excellent communicator and listened to our needs while sharing her experienced based opinions. We listed our house and had a strong offer that we accepted next day, and my husband and I said, "Well, that was easy...in this market, we should have just done it ourselves." That's when a whole host of challenges came up in the closing process. Liens that we weren't aware of & legal hoops from the HARP program to jump through that seriously compromised the sale. Dawn and her team worked hard to research the problems and present solutions. It was her experience, ability to negotiate, and dedication to seeing us through the process successfully that made it all work out. It was a nightmare of a closing but she got it done with grace. She is the definition of an agent that goes above and beyond for her clients. Dawn Rushton is the only agent we will go to and recommend to people in the Maple Valley area.

    • My wife & I could not possibly have been more pleased w/ the care & professionalism we experienced w/ Dawn Rushton & her team. We purchased our first home w/ Dawn's assistance 25 years ago, and she again assisted us as we recently sold that same home. In both cases she was an attentive, responsive, & calming presence as she guided us through the challenges of buying and selling a home. We wouldn't hesitate to work w/ her again, & highly recommend Dawn & her team to anyone looking for an excellent realtor.
