I wish we could give the Cromer Team even more than 5 stars!! We recently closed on a new construction with Dawn and couldn't have asked for a better agent!!  Buying a second house from afar is a scary endeavor; we weren't familiar with the area, the people or the processes involved. But that's where Dawn was a godsend. From the very first moment we reached out to her, she became our champion and provided invaluable advice as we navigated the new home-buying process. Dawn treated this process as if it were her own house being built; providing guidance, coaching, recommendations and insights that ultimately led us to build a house better than we could have managed on our own. Dawn's expert advice helped us avoid pitfalls and include items we otherwise wouldn't have thought of. Throughout the process, she was professional and personable - and many times our visits down to Charlottesville were just as much to see Dawn and spend time with her as they were to see the progress on our house. Dawn worked tirelessly on our behalf, often proactively reaching out to deal with issues long before we saw them ourselves. And as if that wasn't enough, Dawn also served as an interior design consultant for us, helping us see potential where we couldn't. If Joanna Gaines had a twin sister, it would be Dawn. It's only a matter of time before someone at HGTV gives her a show 😉 Seriously, Dawn was the BEST. And we cannot recommend her services highly enough!! We're very, very lucky to have had her as our realtor and even more lucky to now consider her a friend.

My husband and I were newly married and looking for homes remotely as we were moving from another state. We came across Dawn’s bio on Nest’s website and saw that she was a former elite runner. Knowing that her achievements as an athlete required hard work, discipline and drive we were hoping these qualities would translate to her work as a realtor as well. She did a wonderful job for us! She gave us a great understanding of the Charlottesville community in just a weekend’s time and ultimately helped us purchase our home in the highly sought-after area of North Downtown. Dawn helped us understand that there would be some sacrifices in the house to achieve the location we wanted but we’ve been able to make several upgrades in the last few years that have added value both to our home and our growing family! Very thankful for Dawn’s expertise and her especially warm welcome to Charlottesville.

Dawn is our go-to realtor – we have worked with her through the buying and selling of 4 houses - two sets of simultaneous sell then local buy scenarios -not an easy feat!  We first worked with Dawn in 2011; houses were not selling like hotcakes like they are in 2019, Nevertheless, Dawn got the house sold and we even made a profit. When we decided to buy and sell a house simultaneously in 2019, Dawn was the clear choice. Within 5 days of commissioning Dawn to sell our home, it was under contract.  Purchasing a home in 2019 was unlike purchasing a home in 2011-many houses going under contract within 24 hours.  Dawn was instrumental in finding THE house for us.  I wanted a neighborhood; my husband wanted a yard with some privacy.  Dawn found the perfect house –emailing us even before it went on the market.  Dawn responded to texts/emails/calls at all times of the day and night, even while she was on vacation!  Dawn was our advocate during every step of buying and selling, this was especially important during post inspection negotiations. Additionally, she is well connected to the community and recommended excellent brokers/service companies/contractors. AND, she does it all with a smile and delightful attitude.

I do not know how to describe our incredible experience with Dawn in a way that does not sound totally cliché but here’s the truth: if we had been looking for a house, we could have gone with any realtor. We needed a home -one where we could plant our roots in a brand-new city and would be a positive long-term investment financially. When we met Dawn, we had just moved to town from Boston. We had no contacts in the area, we were first time home buyers, and we were looking to start a family. With jobs starting and our 1-month apartment sublet ending, we had a short runway for house hunting and the inventory was low. Not ideal conditions! Dawn had to get creative, personally driving us around town to check out properties as soon as they went up for sale and even letting us know about options that hadn’t yet hit the market. Her industry expertise was matched only by her generosity of spirit and sincere enthusiasm throughout the process and for all that Charlottesville had in store for our growing family. Without Dawn and the care she took to orient us within the region, educate us on the housing market, and personally walk alongside us every step of the way, there is no way the process would have been as truly enjoyable as it was and certainly no chance for us to have found and purchased the perfect first home that we did.

My wife and I could not be more appreciative of Dawn and her team's support and expertise as we searched for and ultimately built our new home. She was a tremendous asset in the building phase and helped us catch and tweak numerous items that would have gone unnoticed without her oversight and experience. Not only did we appreciate the professional help but we also felt cared for and were excited to have gained a new friend in the process!
