"Dawn was GREAT! I'm a first time buyer and she helped me navigate everything from price negotiations to a messy insurance claim we had to go through with the sellers while we were under contract. She fought for us more than we probably would have known to do ourselves! Very knowledgeable and professional. Throughout the search process she was focused on whether or not we liked a property and if it was an attractive property for buyers in general than if it suited her personal tastes. I have recommended Dawn to friends and would work with her again on future purchases"
"This was our first home buying experience as a married couple and we had a short window to work with. Dawn was very patient and understood our needs & budget and stayed within them. We had a few obstacles to overcome and Dawn always stayed friendly, patient and understanding to the very end. I always felt like she was working for us behind the scenes. She gave us great guidance in navigating the entire process. We were always in great hands w/Dawn and would absolutely use he for any future needs. Thank you, Dawn"
"Knew the local Chicago market and knew what needed to done to show the property to advantage. Knew comparable and priced correctly for the area. Patient with nervous seller. I would recommend."
"Dawn Lynch was a referral from a close friend of mine, who had worked with Dawn previously and recommended her. This was my first real estate purchase so I knew nothing about the process. Dawn was very patient and understanding. I used my boyfriend, a business litigation attorney as my real estate attorney to save attorney fees. And very quickly we realized that real estate was not his expertise. Dawn kindly shared her knowledge and guided us along the way, even though that was outside of her responsibility. Dawn is a smart realtor and very cautious with her words, she understands that everyone looks for different things and does not let her own opinion interfere with client's decision making. She showed me different types properties at the beginning so I could form my own opinion on what I really want. That was very helpful to me."
"Dawn did a great job. Told us what we needed to do to make the apartment sale-able and it sold in a week!!"
"Having a partner like Dawn definitely helped reduce the stress of navigating our condo sale. It's the first time we sold a property - and our next home purchase was contingent on the sale of our condo. Dawn helped us price it right, show it soon, and sell it quickly - Logan Square is a fast-paced market and that also helped. We would work with @ Properties and Dawn again."
"Dawn Lynch has listed and rented my Chicago condo for the past 3 years. She is a true professional in all respect, customer focused, and a pleasure to work with. Most recently, she was able to rent my condo in less than 30 days. This is outstanding performance considering that the current tenant provided short notice, and there's not much activity in late November! Not only did Dawn rent the unit, she was able to find a good tenant.I highly recommend Dawn and trust her. She and I have never even met and I am an absentee owner in NYC.Again, you're in good hands with Dawn and I wish you much success in your realtor needs."
"Loved working with Dawn! She sold my place in within 10 days and when I was ready to find a new place she kept me focused on what I wanted in my place which was view and that's what I received. Plus she helped me get a designer to help layout my new place. I'll be using in the future and also referring her to my friends."
"Dawn Lynch has been an amazing agent for us!! We can't speak highly enough about her professionalism, prompt addressing of any issues that arose, great advice on how to approach negotiations, and overall moral support when things got tough with our home sale. I highly recommend her, and will recommend her to friends/co-workers who are looking for an awesome agent who knows the market and always is an advocate for her clients."
"Dawn was amazing, can't say anything that should be improved on. We sold within 2 1/2 weeks, got what we expected, and she was perfect when we looked for a new home. All of her recommendations were also spot on (lawyer, lender, repair workers), just an overall great experience! These transactions can be very stressful, especially doing 2 closes on the same day. We were able to pull it off, largely due to the organization and follow up that Dawn provides to all of her responsibilities. Thanks so much Dawn, you rock!"
"I have nothing but good things to say about Dawn and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a place to call home in the Chicago area. Dawn was very patient, helpful and she is an absolute wealth of knowledge in the Chicago real estate market. It seemed as though every place that fit the criteria I was looking for received multiple offers on the day it hit the market. Not to fear, I had Dawn on my team. She was extremely accommodating once we realized the adversity that we would be facing in my target market sector. Dawn was able to act quickly to get us into places that had just become available, and that is the reason I was able to have an offer accepted on a house that is exactly what I was looking for. Dawn gave me reliable advice throughout the home search and closing process. All of her referrals were spot on, she has clearly surrounded herself with solid business contacts and overall great people."
"Dawn was terrific, She got us more than our asking price, gave us sound, reasonable advice and kept everything moving forward on a very quick sale in a challenging property. I would highly recommend her to others"
"I was referred to Dawn by a close friend. His testimonial is that Dawn is very patient in helping him find his place (for almost a year!). We started looking at places per a property that I liked back in February but it was gone within days. Understanding the what I want and areas I like, Dawn was proactive in adjusting to my preferences and found me my current condo. Dawn also helped to provide good market research about the area and execute my offer for an estate sale. Highly recommended."
"Now that things have slowed down, I wanted to thank you for what I feel was very good and professional service. We are taking a breath to think about another condo in Chicago, but we may ask for you service again. Keep us in mind if you come across a great deal. Also, Shane was excellent, and always responded with a thank you, or confirmation of emails."
"Dawn is amazing. She was on top of new listings and had great knowledge of neighborhoods. She took time to understand our needs and help us narrow our search based. We really felt like we had a partner in the process."
"Dawn Lynch is a true professional in all respect. She consistently delivers results and is really responsive to the needs of her clients. As an absentee owner, I have relied on Dawn to rent my condo and on both transactions, she has assisted in identifying and closing with the tenants. Overall, it was a completely hassle-free experience and I highly recommend Dawn if you need a true professional who can get things done!ms"
"Thank you Dawn, you were persistent and effective, thanks for making the sale happen in our compressed time frame."

"We were so pleased to work with Dawn on both the sale of our condo and the purchase of our house. She made the process so much less stressful. Every step of the way Dawn had our best interest in mind. It was great to work with someone who had the ability to coach us through the process. We would not hesitate to strongly recommend working with Dawn on selling and/or buying. Great experience!"
"Dawn was amazing. We were difficult and indecisive clients for quite some time but Dawn was patient and always willing to check out a property with us at any given notice. She was also very good at providing us research and insight that was timely and relevant for each property we sought to visit. Dawn assisted us in selling our condo prior to helping is with the purchase of our home. Couldn't have asked for anything more. She was absolutely great."
"It was a pleasure working with Dawn. She possesses a vast knowledge of the industry, was forthright, and exceptionally professional. I recommend Dawn most highly."

"Dawn is professional, extremely knowledgable of the marketplace and makes sure she informs you of all your options. I trust her advice and know that she will always help me get the most out of my rental property and the tenants she helps me secure for it. It makes my life so much easier having her as part of the rental process."
"Dawn Lynch is an outstanding real estate professional in all respect. From the start, she truly stood out as being an exceptionally knowledgeable professional and very much to aligning her efforts with the customer's needs. Dawn assisted me to tailor the listing for maximum exposure and very quickly was able to gauge the market demand so that I could price the property for maximum results. She consistently kept me up to date on the showings and provided valuable insight about the intrinsic qualities influencing the property value. As I am located in New York, Dawn treated me as if I am a local to Chicago and provided all of the support necessary to list, offer, and close efficiently and quickly. I would highly recommend her services and you will be another satisfied client."
"Dawn and Carol Ann did a wonderful job renting out my condo to new tenants. They know the market well and know the right and fair price to rent out units in my area quickly. The both worked hard in showing my place and providing me with immediate feedback on prospective tenants interest on my place. I would recommend them to anybody who is in need of an active broker to represent your property in a sale or a rental situation."
"After our first home purchase in Chicago, Dawn kept in touch to understand our next steps and plans not too little, not too much. She kept an eye out for the next perfect opportunity, and when it arose, she helped us jump on it. Dawn looks out for her clients, providing valuable insight and knowledge about the areas she focuses on. Her network of supporting trades including inspectors, attorneys, mortgage brokers, contractors, has proven to be super solid and highly valued. We have already recommended Dawn to a number of friends with confidence."
"Dawn Lynch is simply amazing. She was extremely proactive and helpful throughout the entire process including assistance with renting our condo before selling it. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs to buy or sell property in Chicago or anywhere for that matter. She is very knowledgeable, extremely hardworking, a consummate professional and what sets her apart is her patience and willingness to explain things in terms that the average consumer can understand. I was a first time buyer when she helped me eleven years ago and was a first time seller this year. I cannot imagine it being a smoother process and I give that credit all to Dawn. Great customer service stories are hard to come by these days, but Dawn really goes above and beyond the call of duty and delivers exactly that. Thanks so much, Dawn."
"Dawn was extremely helpful for me in relocating to the city from the East Coast. She was very knowledgeable and helpful in helping me decide which part of town I would like best to call home. And I must say, she help me find the perfect place."
"My husband and I worked with Dawn to purchase our first home in 2012. She came recommended by one of our co-workers as someone who was easy to deal with for first time buyers and knowledgeable about city properties. She did a great job listening to our wish list and then showing us various listings that matched our criteria. She was flexible and helped us quickly narrow down our search so we could maximize our limited time for showings on properties that would best meet our needs. We think she would be a great person for any buyer, novice or seasoned, to use for their Chicago property search since she has a great familiarity with the market and what options are available at certain price points."
"In our first dealing, Dawn was invaluable in helping me make my decision to keep my condo and get more than fair market rental value for it. Her expertise on the properties in my area helped me feel confident I was making the right financial decisions on my investment. She handled the listings, showings, paperwork and tenant screenings savings me countless hours. All I really had to do was give her feedback on the options she put in front of me. I had my place rented out in less than 2 weeks with great tenants.On our second dealing, my tenants had requested to sublease the condo due to a new addition coming to their family. Dawn helped navigate the entire transaction of placing new tenants in the condo and ensuring we had all the necessary paperwork to solidify the deal.Again, all I had to do was give her feedback and approval throughout the process.She is great to work and communicates very well with her clients. I have recommended her to several friends since and if I ever need to sell my condo in Chicago or move back to Chicago I would enlist her help in a heartbeat."
"Over the last 12 years my wife and I have worked with Dawn on 2 different home purchases & sales. Besides being a tremendous pleasure to work with, Dawn has always provided fantastic market research, experienced insight and expert advise. I would recommend Dawn to all of my friends and colleagues, she would be a great choice for your next home search."
"Dawn was very personable & knowledgable about real estate. She was possitive and patient during the whole process. Flexible with schedules, and understood my priorities. I would recommend Dawn without hesitation. She made looking for a new residence an enjoyable experience."
"Urban grit. Though we really could not elaborate, that is how we first described the perfect new home to Dawn. Admittedly, as she questioned and probed, many of our Must Haves and Nice to Haves were not on the typical list for most buyers. This did not deter Dawn, in fact she seemed to embrace the challenge while ensuring we truly understood the implications of our request. She took time to show us a variety neighborhoods and potential opportunities while showing a respect for our time and effort. It was quite clear that she wanted to educate us as new comers to Chicago describing the subtleties of neighborhoods, ins and outs of public transportation and the unique considerations of condominium life. She lent her knowledge and expertise not only during our daytime viewings, but also shared a wealth of insight into local nighttime activities to further our feel for the tone and culture of the neighborhoods. We never felt pressured to make decisions, or ever felt a sense of her trying to up sell us into something with which we were not comfortable. During our entire search, we felt a strong and sincere desire from Dawn to find a home with which we would be happy for the long term. After six months and over 40 showings later, Dawn found us urban grit a condo in need of some TLC and a lot of cleaning products in the heart of one of the city’s busiest neighborhoods. We have made use of her extensive network of contacts and referrals after the sale turning our new condo into a perfect slice of Chicago excitement, all with a great sales experience to boot."
"As first time home buyers, Dawn ensured that we understood the home buying process. She was patient and took time to truly understand what we were looking for and where we wanted to live. She helped us to focus and prioritize what was important to us and set clear expectations every step of the way. She was extremely professional with a vast knowledge of the real estate market, yet she related to us like we have known her for years. Dawn gave us her honest point of view on the properties we considered and provided pros and cons on each based on our needs. This was extremely helpful as we thought of our short term and long term needs. She also is extremely well connected with other professionals. We happily used her recommendation for a contract lawyer, Shane Mowery, and found that he was just as easy to work with. Even after we moved into our new condo, we asked Dawn for a recommendation for a flooring professional. She recommended Ishmal from Traditional Flooring and we could not be happier with the results. We would recommend Dawn for all first time buyers as well as seasoned house hunters. She is a strong listener, trustworthy, and knowledgeable. We know we can count on her for years to come."
"Dawn's expertise and knowledge of the Chicago marketplace, along with her patience, made her a tremendous help in our original efforts to locate and purchase a home in Chicago in 2005. We found a beautiful, fee-simple row home that had all the amenities and met all the requirements that we were looking for - and Dawn helped us to negotiate a very fair price. In 2010, after our family had doubled in size very quickly, Dawn was instrumental in assisting in the lease of our home - going way above and beyond any real estate agent we have every worked with in the past. Again, her patience, honesty and guidance allowed for us to make a wise decision by going with the lease option. We have now used Dawn twice in 5 years - and if we are in need of a real estate agent in the future, we will have no hesitation but to give her a call again!"
"Dawn has provided exceptional services during my home search and selling process. She has provided market insight that drove to smart purchases. Additionally she was able to really understand my needs and wants that allowed for listings that were relevant. I would absolutely use Dawn’s services again and would highly recommend her for home sales and purchases."
"In addition to Dawn’s extensive experience and knowledge of the real estate market, her attention to detail and customer service is second to none. It is a comfort to know that my clients are in the hands of a professional and are receiving the upmost care and service that they deserve."
"Dawn was unbelievably helpful with finding me just the right place to live. With so many choices and options to live, and me being new to the City, she took the time to introduce me to as many areas possible to make sure I was completely comfortable with my new home and neighborhood. I couldn't be more satisfied and grateful to have the opportunity to work with Dawn."
"I have known Dawn for many years and have continued to always refer my clients to her. Why? Because she is more worried about what’s in the clients best interest than hers. Today it seems like so many “sales” people are just out to sell you a piece of real estate. That is why it’s so refreshing to see Dawn slow things down and focus on what’s best for her client and their needs and wants. In fact, she just recently referred me a client that she felt was maybe looking to buy too soon. She selfishly put aside a commission pay day for her in replace of doing what’s right for her customer, so they were better off years down the road."
"Dawn was great! She helped us sell our place during a difficult market. We were able to be aggressive, yet realistic, about our sale price. Dawn always remains calm and level-headed. She talked us through every step of the way, from staging our home to negotiating and closing. And she had fantastic professional referrals!"
"Working with Dawn to purchase my home was a great pleasure. Dawn is extremely knowledgeable about the different Chicago neighborhoods. She is diligent and focused in assisting you find the home you want in a price range you can afford. She knows what constitutes a good deal, and what is overpriced. Dawn has a can-do attitude and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate."
""My wife and I were purchasing our first house and had several questions about the home buying process. Dawn was very helpful and walked us through the various steps that are needed to purchase your first home. We worked with Dawn twice a week over the course of a month and a half to find a condo that was right for us. She was very helpful in showing us places that were within our price range and the style we were looking for. This was especially tough since we were very picky! Thanks for the help Dawn!""
"We worked with Dawn in the fall of 2003 and found her to be professional, hardworking and delightful! We were most impressed with the fact that we felt as if she was truly representing us and our best interests during the process. She took the initiative on many issues and procedures that emerged during our home search...which has not been the case in working with other Agents in the past. We really enjoyed our experience with Dawn and plan to utilize her services again in future real estate ventures in Chicago."
"For many years, I lived in an apartment in Chicago and finally bought a condo. When the time came to sell the condo and realize my dream to own a single family home, I knew I'd need help. Dawn Lynch was the steady, intelligent, reliable agent I needed to complete my condo sale and make settlement on my new home within a week of each other. She was patient as I struggled to decide where I wanted to live and always provided the support needed as we approached each decision in the process. She even "saved the day" at my home settlement by handling a last minute tax matter that needed resolution before we could close. I couldn't have done it without her! If and when I decide to move, Dawn will be the first person I call."
