What fantastic advice that turned out to be! Dawn and Hunter were very supportive at every step of the buying and selling process. Dawn helped us assess whether a small renovation would increase our asking price, helped find a qualified contractor and even staged our house! We had a specific neighborhood we wanted to buy into and they gave great advice when we put in an offer on a rare listing. Then they helped us scramble to sell ours quickly when the offer was accepted. Dawn and Hunter were very easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable and very patient. They really care about their clients and what is in their best interest - it's like having a good friend walk you through the process. Can't refer them enough!
Her friendly and genuine demeanor and non-pushy approach instantly appealed to us. When we got serious about becoming first-time buyers, Dawn was the first person we considered. She did not disappoint, and working with her remains one of the best decisions we’ve made. There are many things I appreciate about Dawn. She is very dedicated and intuitive to what her clients want, and she will work as hard as you to find “the one.” She isn’t pushy, will move at the pace you’re comfortable with, and won’t try to talk you into a home that isnt right for you. Dawn is local to the area and is extremely familiar with northern Virginia. She can also recommend a number of reputable contractors. She turned what would have otherwise been a daunting process into a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. Without question, we will use Dawn for our future real estate needs.
After 12 years in my wonderful home in Alexandria, VA, it was time to downsize and move on. (Dawn was also my agent when I purchased this home and as well as for the sale of my previous home.) Dawn spent a lot of time determining what I needed to do to give my home the best look for a prospective buyer and worked closely with me to make that happen. To be honest, my house had a lot of difficult and moving parts (a pool!) that needed a lot of attention, and she was with us every step of the way. During that time, Hunter also helped me find a new home to rent in the area - holding my hand throughout the process of saying goodbye to my beloved home (which wasn't always easy, I had my less than stellar moments) and settling into something new. They are highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to both list my home and help me find a temporary location to rent. I found Dawn and Hunter to be masters with the contract negotiations, they came up with a deal that was good for me and that made the buyer happy as well, which was no easy feat given the current market situation in my area. Dawn and Hunter work hard and are highly attentive agents, almost as if I was their only customer (although I knew that was not the case). They returned all phone calls and emails the same day. I never felt neglected or unimportant. They are also highly personable with a engaging personalities. Humor got us through a few unexpected surprises. I am pleased to recommend Dawn Gurganus and Hunter Lang to anyone looking to buy or sell a home, I've worked with them to sell two homes, buy one, and rent, and they are hands down the best in the business in my opinion and if I ever need to buy or sell again they will be my first choice in real estate agents.
Dawn made us comfortable right front the beginning and helped us navigate the unfamiliar process with ease. We had done extensive research on the local market and really thought we knew exactly what and where we could and could not afford. They were able to completely respect our budget and desires while simultaneously getting to know us and finding the "nice to haves" that we would have overlooked on our own, which resulted in them finding us the perfect house we felt at home in, and felt spoiled in without spending spoiled money, very shortly in our search. Dawn and Hunter never stopped advocating for us throughout the process, explained every step in detail, and had a contact or referral for everything we needed to make the process seamless. Dawn and Hunter take a genuine interest in their clients and continued happiness in their homes, always ready with ideas and referrals for someone you know she trusts for whatever your needs may be long after the deal is done and becoming a true friend. We cannot recommend their services enough!
We only had one weekend available to view listings in person. Dawn & Hunter took the time to learn our preferences and they assembled a list of properties two weeks ahead of our visit. Before we got to town, they previewed several listings to help us make the most of our time. When we arrived, they dedicated their whole weekend to showing us listings (we even went back to some listings twice). By the end of the weekend, we had a contract down on our first choice. Dawn even helped to arrange and meet the home inspector for us. She was a huge help and made the process as smooth as can be.
