" "Maureen was exceptional during our home search. We told her what we wanted and with minimal searching we found our home. She did the research and respectful of this being our first time. Maureen really helped us problem solve issues that aired from the walk through. We came to settlement prepared and she took time to explain every step of the process. We are so happy with everything!""

– Erin Detweiler (Buyer)

" This sale would not have happened without Maureen. Her dedication and persistence in working through the short sale was awesome! I could not have asked for an agent to work harder and be more on top of things. She was diplomatic in working with difficult buyers and an inexperienced agent and deftly managed them throughout the process. I valued her experience and advice and it alway proved correct in getting the home sold."

– Jim Stein (Seller)

" Maureen helped my husband and I find a new condominium. She was very attentive to our desires and needs, especially the physical access needs of my mother. She found properties relevant to us, so we did not waste time looking at unsuitable properties. We have known her for years, and she has been a consistent source of valuable real estate advice and a true friend."

" My wife and I had the pleasure of using Maureen for both the sale of our townhouse and purchase of our current home. Maureen is a pleasure to work with and brings with her a tremendous amount of expertise and industry knowledge that allowed us to successfully navigate a very challenging real estate market. I would recommend Maureen without reservation."

" Maureen was extremely honest and trustworthy when my wife and I were looking for a condo in Reston. She really took the time to get to know our needs and desires. We were also very appreciative that she was not overly pushy and I truly felt that she was looking out for our best interests as a buyer's broker. I would highly recommend her services to purchaser and sellers alike."

– Ryan C. Young

" Maureen Dawson was delightful to work with and we always recommend her to any of our friends who are looking to purchase a home. As first time homeowners, we were excited and anxious to start the process of finding the perfect place for us! Maureen was very accommodating and reassuring along the way, and she was able to answer our questions. With her positive attitude and wonderful sense of humor, she greatly reduced our concerns about the process and pointed out things about each of the properties that we wouldn't have noticed otherwise. She has decades of experience in real estate, and we really felt at ease working with her. Buying a property can be a very confusing and overwhelming process, but with Maureen, we knew she had our best interests at heart. Maureen really simplified the whole process for us, and truly helped us find our first dream home. Thanks again, Maureen!!"

" Maureen helped my husband and me find a new home for our family. From the beginning, Maureen was there to provide expert advice and insight. She came up with innovative ideas to help move our search forward when there weren't many homes on the market in the area we were targeting. She was patient with us, showing us many homes before we found "the one"! And most of all, I've been pleasantly surprised at how Maureen has stayed in touch with us even after closing. She continues to stop by the house to see how we are doing, and sends helpful reading material by mail on topics of interest to new homeowners. I would definitely recommend Maureen to anyone looking for a realtor who is the epitome of professionalism and looking for someone who will go the extra mile to make their home buying process a positive one.
