Dawna's Approach

Buying

Even if you know what features you want in a house or a neighbourhood, you might not know where to look.  And if you are relocating from another city or province, how do you know which area or house is right for you? 

 

​That’s where the experience of a Nova Scotia real estate agent comes in handy. 

Knowing what to look for, where to look, and how to put in the right offer are skills honed over decades of buying and selling in this province. 

Dawna and her team work hard to get you the right home at the right price.

Selling

Paperwork, numbers, and phone calls are one thing. 

 

What you may not realize is that selling your home in Nova Scotia is all about nuance. Little things you’d never expect can affect whether you have one viewing a day, or twelve. 

 

A listing photo featuring a car in the driveway is a no-no. Where a picture is hung, or what the picture is, can turn prospective buyers away. 

 

Dawna and her team know these little secrets and plenty more, giving your home the best opportunity to catch attention, and you the best chance at selling your house quickly and efficiently.

"Dawna found us our dream home and secured the sale in a crazy market."

Advocating for your best interests when you can’t

“Dawna helped us buy our condo and office space this year. She is hands down the hardest working agent in the HRM. If you’re looking for someone who is always available, extremely hard working and advocates for your best interests, working with her is a no brainer. I am an extremely busy business owner and she has made the process a seamless one for us. She is the best of the best.” - Jessica Ghaney

Ready and willing to take on any challenge

“My wife and I had been transferred to Ontario and we were having a difficult time selling our property. The agent we had previous to Dawna seemed more interested in low-balling us into selling him the home, than actually selling the property. From the start of our conversations, Dawna was very professional and confident. She understood our predicament and got to work on solving the problems. Dawna is honest and trustworthy, qualities that seem hard to come by in this day and age.” - Gump Harrison

Handling all the details and establishing a schedule

“Dawna presented a reasonable timeline in which to accomplish our photos, advertisement and sale and made great suggestions on how to best present our property. Once offers were in she met with us, we selected our purchaser and she guided us through all the hoops we needed to sell our property and move to our new home. Her confidence and guidance was reassuring.” - Sandra Barry

Your complete guide for out-of-province relocations

“Having to move to a new province leaving behind jobs, school, and friends is never easy, but Dawna made us all feel valued and cared for throughout the process. During COVID-19 we made the choice to make our purchase completely online. Dawna [...] patiently took us on virtual tours giving us a detailed look at our property before we made the offer. In addition, she was able to point us in the direction of the many other services we needed in the area.” - Douglas Gillespie
