Dawn

We have the best Realtor ever!  She is a professional full time person in the industry… not just a part-timer.
 I have learned that Dawn Goodridge is highly educated within her field and has many awards to her name.  She attends most of the home inspections on the properties she is dealing with, so she has exceptional knowledge that most agents don’t have.
 Her previous background in accounting helps with the numbers and tax side of things which gave us a big hand up.
 We wanted to purchase a particularly tricky property and she helped us get it at a reduced rate!  She negotiated for us and got much more than we expected in the deal. Her work was exceptional.
 Dawn is the complete package and if you want to buy or sell I would highly recommend you talk with her.  You will see immediately how knowledgeable she is and how she can really help you get the deal you need.  The best thing is with all her knowledge she is still a very kind and humble person to deal with.
 Dawn thanks for the exceptional service.  We hope to purchase another property one day and will only deal with you. 
 Thanks again from the Farrells!

To Whom It May Concern:
 
My husband was unsure it would be affordable to move into the city from the country.  We had several areas of the city in mind initially and started looking at homes independently.  Later with Dawn Goodridge, We slowly, with Dawn's consistent help, chose the area best for us.  We met Dawn at one of the open houses early on when we had been downsizing and looking around to see what was available and how much the asking prices were.  Right away I knew she was honest, true to her word, experienced, knowledgeable about the housing market, and someone I wanted with whom to do business.  Lastly, the question of whether a condo or a freehold would be best.  Dawn gave us the pros and cons of each, we finally found the home we wanted after owning the same home for over 40 years.

Dawn helped us find the professionals best suited to our needs, lawyers, inspectors, etc., and they proved to be excellent recommendations.  With her extensive knowledge, she was able to answer our questions almost immediately or researched and found the answer very shortly, such as:
 
What changes to make our home more salable and attractive to prospective home buyers without the inconvenience and expense of staging our home,
 
The kind of prospective buyers that would probably be looking for a home like ours,
 
How to attract the clientele 
 
Where to find homes in our price range, and what we want included at our new home
 
What to look for that might present future problems or be prepared to change should we buy the house
 
Directed us away from houses or communities inappropriate for seniors.
 
Being in our new home is close to our family and one of the main reasons to move.  It is convenient and close to many walking areas, spectator sports, stores, and church etc.  We've met new friends already, and like the song, "Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold", the journey has been rewarding with Dawn's assistance.

As we began searching for our first home, one of the best decisions we made was to work with Dawn. Throughout the entire process, Dawn made us feel extremely comfortable as she guided us every step of the way. She provided us with expert advice, and always took the time to answer our many questions. Dawn is extremely professional, and knowledgeable; there wasn't a question or concern that she did not address while always taking into account our wants and needs. What’s more, Dawn is not only very insightful, but remarkably personable, dedicated, and caring. We were confident that we could trust Dawn to represent our best interest, and offer us advice that was in our best interest. Dawn went above and beyond for us, and exceeded all of our expectations. We have now been in our new home for a little over a month, and could not be happier! Thanks Dawn! Stephane & Katrina

“I’ve been working with Dawn Goodridge for a few years now through my company Blue Ribbon Rent To Own. In that time Dawn has worked very closely with both my clients and me. I have come to rely on Dawn’s thorough knowledge of the Ottawa market and her integrity in seeking out the best possible outcome for the people with whom she works. Whenever Dawn works with one of my clients, I always follow up to ensure that they were happy with her service. I have only received excellent feedback about her superlative service. In my business I deal with many Realtors in the Ottawa area and I can honestly say that Dawn is at the top of my list of go-to Realtors. She knows what she’s talking about and she does what she says she’ll do. She is a consummate professional. I recommend her highly. -Doris Belland, President, Blue Ribbon Rent To Own”
When the TopOttawaHomes.com Team took over the sale of our house, we immediately knew it was going to be sold in a very short time. They brought their professionals in right from the beginning and offered us services at no charge that you would normally have to pay for. We were very impressed by their Team approach and that we knew right from the beginning they were very sincere about selling our house. -Debbie and Darrell
Being a first time home owner was very scary step, if it weren’t for Dawn’s help, I am not sure I would have made the purchase. Dawn made my experience reassuring and comforting. She has a strong work ethic and a caring personality, she made me feel confident in what was a large transaction in my life. She creates client relationships built on trust and understanding. Never did she push just to “make the sale”. I will always remember her saying, you must go with your gut. Dawn is dedicated and determined to providing personalized service by putting his client’s needs first. Her knowledge, communication skills and the fact that she takes into account the concerns of the client reflect her loyalty to them . I would recommend Dawn to anyone that I know and especially first time buyers. Great job Dawn!!!!! –Paolina
I have been working as a mortgage broker for the past 4 years. During that time I have worked with many different real estate agents. I would have to say that I have never, until now had the pleasure of working with agents like Sheldon and his team. The service and knowledge they provide their clients is priceless and the commitment they make to find the right home for them is unsurpassed. Any client I have referred them have had nothing but great things to say. I can honestly say that if you want an agent with your best interest at heart, then Sheldon is your man. He has made providing great service throughout the whole home buying experience an easy task. Thanks again Sheldon for all your hard work and dedication. -Miles MacDonald, DLC The Mortgage Source
After a lifetime of renting we finally had the opportunity to by our first home. This rather daunting experience became exciting and rewarding with the expert and friendly help and advice from Christine. We were planning on relocating outside of Ottawa into a small town and Christine was there for us every step of the way. Her planning, research and trouble shooting helped make the transition seamless. We are grateful for her tireless professionalism and her joyful approach... our move and our new home couldn't have been better. Zoë and Dave
