We recently sold our home and purchased a new one in Herndon. It was quite by chance that we met Dawn Perusse, but we will always be grateful that we did. We quickly knew we could trust her. She is extremely personable and friendly. One of Dawn's greatest strengths is her ability to communicate well. She is diligent, honest and direct. She explained everything very thoroughly and kept us informed through every step of the process by use of frequent emails, phone calls and visits. She is approachable and easy to talk to. We felt we could call her with any question. She worked with our busy schedule, meeting with us in the evening or on the weekends. We were impressed by her ability to keep up with all the details. She gave great advice, drawing from her experience and knowledge of the real estate business. Her instincts about strategy are excellent. She really did a great job of anticipating various scenarios so that we had no set backs or surprises. With all the details to keep track of during the sale and purchase, she had a knack for putting our minds at ease and making us feel confident that she was thinking of everything. We have been raving about her to everyone who visits our new home. We will definitely give her name to anyone we know who is thinking of buying or selling a home. She made our dream come true and we will always be grateful to her.

We write to advise you of the most pleasant and successful home sales event we have experienced. Our realtor, Dawn Perusse made it all happen. We settled on the sale of our home on August 31 and the sale was made just 30 days from the listing date which we felt was extraordinary given the slowdown in the market. Dawn was most helpful in assisting us in reaching a sale price for our home. She spent many hours personally viewing, visiting and reviewing houses similar to ours in order to arrive at an asking price that would be both attractive and competitive. As soon as the listing occurred, Dawn began a successful program of marketing our home both locally and on the Inter Net. Her Inter Net ad attracted a buyer from overseas who might have purchased the property had he not waited just a bit too long. The most pleasing aspect of working with Dawn is her always cheerful and positive outlook and attitude. While we were somewhat alarmed by the lack of activity for the first several weeks of our listing, Dawn was not disturbed or deterred. Her positive spin and encouragement were most helpful in keeping us in a good frame of mind. Dawn is a wonderfully talented real estate professional who pays careful attention to detail and never loses sight of the objective of selling our home. Her interaction with other realtors and her sunny disposition make friends for her and your firm. We congratulate you on having this fine person on your staff and will certainly call upon Dawn again for any real estate help we might need.

We recently sold our house in a very slow market. Our Realtor was Dawn Perusse. I met Dawn when I was looking at "the competition" in our neighborhood. Dawn has a wonderful personality and we found her to be super to work with. Dawn kept us informed every step of the way. Neighborhood stats and market trends were sent every week. Communication was remarkable. Prompt email or phone responses were her standard. Dawn worked hard to market our home to the best advantage. Her brochures are outstanding! Our brochures were the best ones I have ever seen. She did a great job! Dawn is highly ethical in everything she does. Her careful attention to detail and the attention she pays her clients is obvious. Dawn Perusse is truly an asset to your firm. If we could give her the "Star of the Year" award, we would!! Dawn was great to work with in a difficult and very flat market. All of her efforts paid off with the successful sale of our home, including some very late nights working up the perfect brochure and web site presentation. Please extend our appreciation to Dawn and know that you and the rest of the staff are very fortunate to have Dawn as part of your team.

I'm writing to you to tell you of the outstanding job that Dawn Perusse did for us as the listing agent for our farm. We can't say enough about the positive experience she provided. Having lived on the farm for over 32 years we entered into the decision to sell with very mixed emotions. One of our main concerns was "how are we ever going to get this done?", thinking that the job seemed overwhelming, particularly given the current economic climate. But having known Dawn as a close friend for many years, our immediate instincts told us she would be the perfect person to handle the job. Dawn enthusiastically jumped-in with the mission of satisfying our goals and getting the property sold. But more importantly she embraced the job of guiding us through the process professionally, efficiently, and always with a sense of humor and style. Dawn knows the business inside and out so we felt completely confident in her guidance and suggestions. She is impeccable in her work ethic and attention to detail. She was a wonder at helping us to identify and prioritize tasks to prepare the property for sale. Dawn prepared beautiful promotional material and brochures thanks to her fine talent in photography and presentation. The Open Houses she conducted were outstanding and well attended, thanks to her expert promotion. Dawn went above and beyond in providing us with weekly reports of Internet viewings and activity as well as updates on comparable sales and listings and any other additional information she was able to find. She was attentive, available, and encouraging throughout the process. Congratulations for having such a professional, hard-working, and friendly agent as Dawn Perusse. Anyone looking for a Real Estate should know that you can most definitely Depend on Dawn!

I am writing to you so that you will know what a wonderful agent you have in Dawn Perusse. From the first moment Dawn was extremely professional and attended to the details. In fact she is the "queen of details." I am a teacher, and the end of the year is so busy that I didn't have time to do all the detail work I needed to do. Dawn picked it all up and did it flawlessly. Dawn was encouraging in any issue that arose, was patient in the waiting process, was well-informed about how to "get the house" during these difficult times, and offered suggestions and possibilities that could work. She always left the decisions to us as we contemplated her ideas. She found us an amazing lender to make the deal sparkle even more. From the beginning to the end, Dawn was always helpful, never pressuring us. She was creative in her approach to every aspect of selling and buying a home. My husband loved the calendar of details to be timely with all transactions. I just wanted you to know how positive and lovely our purchase experience was because of Dawn Perusse. You are lucky to have her as part of your agency.

We just moved into the new home of our dreams and simply could not have done it without Dawn Perusse. We started our search many months ago on our own and decided we should enlist the help of a buyer's broker--it was by far the best decision we ever made. The organization and detail of Dawn's website quickly rose to the top of my initial searches online and she has been impressing us ever since. Dawn's understanding and knowledge of the market we were interested in always kept us well informed. We had a house to sell in a rapidly declining real estate market and were worried about our timing, yet Dawn's patient and professional manner helped keep us calm, and ensured we were able to fully realize the potential we had to achieve our goals. She was with us every step of the way, communicating constantly and making sure we had all sorts of guidance and information to help us make some very important decisions. This was our first experience with a buyer's broker and we certainly would not have done very well without Dawn's assistance in this home purchase. We encourage anyone to seek her out before they purchase their next home!
