Dawn excels in her craft because of her extensive knowledge in real estate and more importantly, her passion, commitment, and drive to helping her customers. I'm very impressed with Dawn's customer service and her genuine nature. Dawn is a true professional and displays those qualities by being sincere, honest, truthful, loyal, open, and candid. She listens first.....gives opinion second......takes action.......and continually repeats the cycle until you're at total satisfaction. It was a pleasure working with Dawn and would highly recommend her to my family, friends and anyone looking for a real estate guru.
My husband and I are very happy with are our new Home that Mike Lewis helped us find. He is a very patient, knowledgeable, and personable real estate agent and I am very delighted to write a review and recommend anyone that has real estate needs to connect Mr. Lewis and his team. The service provided went far beyond our expectation and we are pleased with our new home. Mike answered all of our questions regarding the process and gave alot of helpful insights, explained all paperwork and made sure we as buyers knew what we were signing and fully aware. Mike took us to over 20 properties from San Diego, La Mesa, Chula Vista, to Escondido until God led us to "our home". I as well as my family whole heartedly recommend Mike Lewis and his company. We are very pleased and happy to give 5 stars.
Dawn is by far the best real estate professional I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Dawn brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise, but more importantly an ‘instinct’ that is very rare in the real estate business. Dawn has helped me buy and sell homes on multiple occasions, found investment opportunities, placed tenants, and drove an overall relationship where your best interests as a client are her top priorities. Dawn has a top-to-bottom understanding of the entire real estate business, and when finding a real estate professional you are hiring someone that you can trust to help you make decisions. Dawn helps you make these calls – and from personal experience she’s guided the best possible outcome in every real estate need I’ve had. I highly recommend working with Dawn Lewis if you have the opportunity. I’ve worked with dozens of others “top” agents in many markets and no one comes close to Dawn’s capabilities.
We cannot say enough great things about Dawn Lewis. Dawn went above and beyond our expectations. She always made us feel like we were her top priority, was quick to respond to emails, and clearly brought a wealth of knowledge to the process. Dawn also has an extremely helpful assistant, Jennifer who made sure that we were taken care of throughout the buying process. Dawn even helped us out after we purchased our home with issues that were unrelated to her. She will be our real estate agent for years and years to come. Would highly recommend to friends & family in a heartbeat.
I purchased a condo that Dawn helped me find - completing the entire purchase online. This was an investment for my granddaughter to live in while going to school. I shipped furniture to furnish this two bedroom condo in a pod. Dawn and her staff supervised the delivery and unloading and arranged for someone to unpack and put everything in its place including hanging pictures and making beds. Dawn and her staff also assisted in a short term rental until my granddaughter arrived. Throughout the time we worked together she was always pleasant, cooperative, competent, and knowledgeable. I would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone who selling or buying in the San Diego area.
