Hi Dawn

Happy New Year and here’s to a Great 2018 !

I would like to thank you for all your help in 2017. It was a very busy year for our new accommodation team and your help and professionalism in assisting to find the right properties for a more than a dozen diplomats contributed to our busiest year since 2014.

You have a wealth of experience in the local housing market including market trends, housing inventory, communities, neighborhoods and apartments and family homes. All of which are essential when looking for the right homes for officers arriving from overseas.

You great customer service skills, hands on and informative approach helped deliver a stress free process for our customers. You always acted in a professional manner and you always made yourself available to myself and the team at all times including weekends and holidays. As a single point of contact, you understood our processes and procedures and took away a lot of the strain from the team in the Embassy.

Hi Dawn,

Happy New Year! How does this look?

Dawn was hugely helpful and practice in helping me secure a property in the super competitive DC market. She liaised well with all the different parties to ensure the process was as efficient and kept me informed of progress at all times.

We were looking for someone to help us buy a new house in the Bethesda area,

and Dawn had so much knowledge and expertise since she grew up in the area that we were

so happy we went with her after interviewing a handful of agents. We were impressed with her insights and commitments to all round quality service, which is what we got! And a wonderful new house! We will for sure be using her in the future when we are ready to look for more properties!

“Minutes after requesting information on a property online we were contacted by Dawn, from that point forward she worked closely with us until we found the best option. She was very knowledgeable about the area, properties, and gave us crucial information. When we decided on our current home it was late in the evening on a weekend and Dawn made sure that all the paperwork was completed and took care of all the logistics. I’ve never heard of an agent being so accommodating and diligent. We give her our highest recommendation.”

Things are good and the townhouse has been perfect.


Dawn Chaikin was my realtor helping me search for a small studio apartment in Chevy Chase. She was extremely helpful and very efficient. I appreciated her being always available and going with me to look at various possibilities. Dawn is very generous with her time and she has become a good friend. I enjoy her company and hope to do more business with her in the future. I will also refer friends to her for help in searching for property in the DC Maryland area. She is very good at explaining the complexity of the real estate market and was a great help to me in securing a mortgage.

I greatly appreciate all of the help she gave to me. It was a pleasant experience buying my condo because of her.

I was pleased with Dawn’s Service. She told me what should be done to the house in order for it to sell. I changed these said

items and the house was sold in less than 1 month. Very pleased.
