    Dawn was everything we needed and more with our relocation to Charlottesville! We only had a limited time to look at houses and Dawn created a specialized plan of attack. We appreciated her negotiation skills when it came time to put an offer in on a home! Would 100% refer Dawn to anyone moving to the area. Her knowledge of the area is amazing and we trusted all the advice she gave us!

    We are so grateful to Dawn and her team for helping us to find a wonderful home in Crozet! Dawn's expertise in the area helped us to navigate the home buying process while we were still living out of state. Her advice pointed us to a great home in a neighborhood that checked all of our boxes, and then she guided us through putting together a winning offer in a very competitive market. Once we were under contract, Emily ensured that we had all of the information that we needed to feel confident through each step of the closing process. Dawn and her team work together so well, and we are appreciative for their essential role in finding our new home!

    This is the second time we work with Dawn and, again, was fantastic to work with. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable of the market. Thanks to her advice on how to price the home, our house sold in one day. She was always available for our questions and she certainly made the selling process much easier and stress free for us. Dawn cares immensely for her job and her clients and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

    Recently completed a 2nd home purchase (approximately 8 years apart) with Dawn & The Cromer Team. Dawn is warm, authentic and you will be very hard pressed to find a realtor with a comparable depth of knowledge and experience. This wisdom translates to invaluable perspective for anyone considering a RE transaction.

    My husband and I absolutely loved working with Dawn! We decided last minute to make a move across states and Dawn made the process incredibly seamless. She was recommended to us by some close friends in the area and we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her. She was available to answer any and all questions, she checked in with us at every step of the process, and honestly she was just fun to work with. We are so thrilled with our new home and thankful that Dawn was able to make such a chaotic time for us so enjoyable.

    After a friend had such a positive experience with Dawn, she highly recommended her to me. I am grateful and fortunate for her recommendation. Dawn was knowledgeable, attentive, and great advocate. She listened carefully to what I was looking for and gave me guidance every step of the way. Throughout every step of the new construction home purchase process, Dawn was supportive, a great negotiator, and answered every question in a timely manner. I always felt that my needs and interests were her top priority. I hope I can pay it forward and recommend Dawn to others.

    Dawn did a fantastic job guiding me through my first home purchase. My job has incredibly unpredictable hours and leaves me very little time to fully engage in the home buying process. However, Dawn made it effortless. She was always available and always very responsive to the litany of questions that I had. Her attention to detail was impeccable and her follow-through is unparalleled. After I found a home to go under contract on Dawn handled EVERYTHING. From finding all the specialists who would be needed to inspect the home to even finding a chimney sweep on the fly when some doubts were raised by the home inspection she was not just on top of it, but always one step ahead and made the whole process seamless. She takes the time to really devote 1 on 1 attention to her clients and is really phenomenal at her job. I could not recommend her more highly.

    Dawn is one of the best realtors I've had the chance to work with. She goes above and beyond in all aspects. In this crazy market, her understanding of how to write a contract so we received the winning bid proved to be so valuable. I learned so much about each house as I walked through them. Her experience with flipping homes is an added bonus you didn't even know you needed in a realtor. Even after the contract was done and the closing was complete, Dawn has still been there for me with any needs or to answer all my questions.

    Dawn Cromer is the reason we are in our new home. We were repeat clients with her, and she stuck with us through a volatile and low inventory market to land us in our dream home. We had such specific requests including an incredibly tight radius around Crozet, and when the right house popped up, she moved quickly to get us under contract with multiple offers on the table. She was always there for questions and got us to the finish line with ease. She is truly an expert, and I highly recommend her team for both buying and selling.

    Dawn is one of the reasons we moved to the Charlottesville area. We stayed at her gorgeous short-term rental on vacation and fell in love with the area. As my husband and I contemplated a move, Dawn was always readily available to answer our questions honestly and knowledgeably. Ultimately, we decided to purchase a new build with Dawn, and could not have been happier with our decision. Dawn partnered with us every step of the way. In addition to helping us find a property, communicate with builders and negotiate our terms and contract, Dawn played an integral role in the design and building process. She is an incredibly talented designer, and comes to the table with deep knowledge of what her clients need to live comfortably. She was in no way contractually obligated to assist with design, yet she was consistently engaged to ensure we got our dream home. When issues came up with our builders, she also proactively stepped in to represent our best interests. Once the building was complete, she went above and beyond to ensure my family felt welcome in the community. I can't imagine receiving this range of services and hospitality from any other realtor. If you are moving to the Charlottesville area and, particularly, if you are building a new home, you have to use Dawn Cromer's team. Thank you Dawn!
