We come from a family of Realtors, so we know when we have been blessed with a good one! Dawn went above and beyond to make sure we got an amazing family home that we will continue to make many more memories in! Thank you :) January 2017 a single family residence in Canyon Lake, CA.
"I’ve now had the pleasure to work with Dawn on two separate occasions. Whether buying or selling, the process will be, at times, inherently stress inducing, frustrating, and inconvenient. However, having a skilled and knowledgeable professional to guide you through the process will absolutely make all the difference. The list of adjectives which are applicable to Dawn is extensive; honest, upstanding, committed, hardworking, reliable, steadfast, etc. Most importantly; the kindness, integrity and professionalism Dawn exudes, is unparalleled. The genuine care and concern she has shown for my family is a testament to her character. Without doubt, Dawn is an esteemed professional at the top of her field. I hold her in the highest regard.

I interviewed 3 other realtors before I found Dawn to assist my husband and I in locating a horse property in the San Diego area. We started our relationship via her website (www.DawnAaris.com)
which I would highly recommend to view properties. Her website was extremely user friendly, and I was able to save properties that I liked. Initially, she reached out to me in a very professional manner via email, she provided feedback on the properties I had saved and also provided other properties to consider. She was able to direct me by honing in on more specific locations for us as I was not familiar with the areas. I have to say from the moment of first contact working with Dawn has been a blessing and a joy.
Her vast knowledge of the areas, the properties and other agents has been invaluable in our search. She has taken the time to get to know our needs and wants and has then honed in on properties that matched. She is very efficient, performs at a high level of excellence and a true professional in every sense of the word. She places her clients interests above her own and was even able to arrange a showing of a home that was not even listed at the time but thought it would be an ideal property for us to view. As we viewed various properties, Dawn provided very wise words of wisdom and made sure we took into consideration certain things for each property based on our wants and needs. We loved her honesty, sincerity and her great sense of humor and we consider her not only our agent but our friend.
We would highly recommend Dawn for anyone looking for an agent in the San Diego area – she is the BEST!.

I made the decision to relocate back to North County after 29 years since last living here, I knew Dawn first as a good friend and secondly as her expertise as a realtor. In the last 3 1/2 years prior to moving here, I made a couple of trips to decide which areas and neighborhoods would be a good fit for me. Dawn spent significant time researching and taking me to potential homes, even though I wasn’t quite ready to move, yet wanted to get a feel of the area. Moving from Hawaii to San Diego is not an easy move, yet once I had interest in a specific home, Dawn was ‘on it’ and extremely thorough in all aspects of the process. The stress of buying a home was lessened, watching Dawn have my best interests through it all. In fact, Dawn became my eyes and ears and I ended up buying the home without flying in. Dawn knew what my needs and specifics were, the type of home and feel of community I wanted.
I bought the home and moved in 5 months later. During this time, Dawn was instrumental in helping me navigate through some changes on the property I wanted completed before I was able to make my move. Dawn sees her role as a realtor not as a job, but a joy. I’ve heard her repeat over the years knowing her as a friend, that she loves what she does and loves working with people find their perfect fit. I’m fortunate to have her as a friend and as a truly professional and talented realtor!
In 2008 I was buying my first home. It was a time when the market was flooded with short sales and foreclosures. Dawn Aaris worked patiently with me to weed through and find conventional sales that met my needs. I am thankful to have found her as my real estate agent.
Dawn was always available to answer my questions or to schedule an afternoon of showings. She was always professional, direct and personable.
When I would suggest a listing by street name, Dawn would know right away if it wasn’t an appropriate option for me to go look at. Whether it was undesirable road noise or downwind from a farm. She has a remarkable knowledge of San Diego North County and beyond.
When I did find a home in San Marcos, Dawn was by my side the whole way through escrow. With her expert connections, I secured financing, home inspection, etc. She worked with the other agent to gain access to the home so I could verify my new dining table would match the kitchen cabinets. Dawn even went up on the roof with me to verify repairs!
Since 2008 I have had the pleasure of working with Dawn two more times as my selling and buying agent. I am now living happily on my little ranch in Hidden Meadows, CA
Dawn did an outstanding job securing a home for us in San Marcos. I use the word "secure" because our property was a short sale home. I had heard all the awful stories of how long it would take and how chaotic it would be to get a home through the short sale process. That was not the case for us. Dawn did a wonderful job keeping in touch with the bank and communicating with my husband and I through every step of the process. Dawn was informative and very professional in how she represented herself, and us as buyers. Dawn continues to keep in touch with our family, which I have never encountered with another agent. To me Dawn is an agent, but more importantly a friend. I recommend Dawn to anyone with no hesitation, and I would use her expertise in real estate again in a minute!
Dawn found me the perfect house in one day. She listened closely to my needs, such as wheelchair accessibility and downstairs bedroom, and showed me only homes that had both. Dawn also showed me only homes that I was able to qualify for. And not only homes at the top of my budget, but she showed me homes costing less too, and not one over. She cared only about me finding the perfect home, not what her commission would be. Dawn was able to negotiate in a refrigerator, and washer/dryer set, without me initiating any of the process. She thought of only what the best house, costs and extras that would be for me.
Dawn was a wonderful realtor even after our house closed escrow and we were handed the keys. She was there through the whole process to answer any questions and provide resourceful advice. We have relied on Dawn for referrals of several areas as well as provided her contact info to several friends.
Dawn was fantastic, she handled our relocation with enthusiasm. I had 45 days to locate and close on a house. Dawn and her team quickly found some homes that featured our "must haves". Dawn was very genrous with her time as we began our search (evenings and weekends) which was critical given our time frame and pressures of getting our children enrolled in school. She made the home search quick, closing quick, paperwork super easy and the follow up spectacular! All of which are critical to quality for a professional relocation. Thank you Dawn!
I feel so lucky to have found Dawn as our real estate agent. She is so professional and her integrity is top notch. We bought our house with her as our buying agent five years ago and were so impressed that we returned to her services as a selling agent now that we're ready to sell.
Dawn was knowledgeable, patient and helpful finding me my home in Vista, when I moved here. I didn't know the area and she took the time to show me around and check out different homes, helping me to find the neighborhood to live in, and a home that meets my needs. She had a great attitude and knew the people to call to get the things taken care of to move my sale forward. I recommend her to anyone who needs a real estate agent. I know she will do a good job for you as she did for me
I was new to the area and Dawn was very good showing me the area and finding just the right property for me. I only needed to look at 2 or 3 houses before she found the one I wanted. I did not need to worry about any of the paperwork because she explained it all and arranged all the details
Dawn guided us through our first home buying experience in 2011. She made the process for us smoother then my wife and I could have imagined. She was extremely knowledgeable and from start to finish spent as much time as it took to ensure we understood the process and our options. We will absolutely use Dawn again when the time comes to move and have highly recommended her to all our friends. We could not have had a better experience!!!!!
Dawn is an amazing realtor. She not only listens to what you say, she uses her experience and savvy to hear what you AREN'T saying. My husband and I were looking to buy a house in Carlsbad when the market was moving fast. Houses were sold before they hit the MLS. We told Dawn what we wanted and she took us around to look at the houses that had those features. In the process, she knew before we did that because my husband works in LA, the location of the house was as important to us, if not more so, than having some of the features we thought we really needed. Dawn took us to a house that was actually missing most of what was on our want list, but it's proximity to freeways, shopping, and the Village was so perfect and the house so charming, we put an offer down on the spot. When it came to buying the house, Dawn worked tirelessly to get us a great deal and work through the red tape of a VA home loan. She was in constant contact with us and we were at ease knowing that for every hiccup, Dawn was on it and knew how to handle it. You don't become the realtor Dawn is without having a love of what you do. Her experience and knowledge is priceless. I have recommended Dawn to everyone I know wanting to buy or sell a home. I cannot recommend her enough!
We love you, Dawn! We talk about the whole process of buying this house and we know that it wouldn't have turned out without you standing in our corner!
"Active duty military stationed oversea receiving orders back to the states, if this wasn't already a stressful situation , looking for a place to live via the internet/email was. I was indecisive about the decision of purchasing or renting a home, the paths of my family and Dawn crossed. She listened to our needs and all our ideas and it were awesome that she even understood that this would be a challenge (what we thought) being that we were in two different countries. our first conversation was Dawn explaining and reassuring us that it would be no problem for her , she was going to be there no matter what decision we decided. Having four months left overseas we received at least one email daily from Dawn which kept us up to date to all the possible properties that were available. She also was attentive & listened to our needs of my husband and I working in two different locations and the needs of my family. We changed our minds a couple times I must admit and Dawn never left our side. Dawn was able to be proactive and knocked out one of the biggest parts in the closing months in advance. Dawn placed her self in our shoes was always selfless. My family and I came first always. Dawn not only became our friend but our family. She is a Angel sent from Heaven. She found a house that we never expected. It was a great experience and I would recommend Dawn to any one looking for a home that fits them perfectly."
