Overall 5 star rating out of 17 reviews

"Dawn was very personable and helpful with her suggestions to sell our home. She understood that due to a relocation only qualified buyers could actually tour our home. Dawn was respectful of our family during the Covid situation. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in selling homes in the Thornwood neighborhood. She lived there herself for quite some time and was able to share her experience with prospective buyers and realtors"

"Dawn was great to work, she was very knowledgeable of the area and she was great at walking us through the whole experience as first time home buyers. She is a pro at what she does!"

"Dawn and her team were excellent to work with! After being on the market for nearly a year with another realtor we relisted with Dawn, and after two days back on the market we had a full price offer!"

"Dawn was very much an advocate through the process of selling our home. Her knowledge of the market and our area was strong. She provided excellent suggestions on preparing and staging our home as well as setting a price that maximized our value. Tammy, her stager was excellent. She did such a good job that I almost didn’t want to move! Communication was excellent and the entire process was painless. I highly recommend Dawn and her team."

"My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Dawn! We recently sold and purchased a new home and Dawn made the entire process understandable, enjoyable and worth it all! With her staging and marketing help, our home sold in a matter of weeks! Dawn was so dedicated in finding us our dream home and put her negotiating skills to work in a difficult situation, which ultimately landed us our dream home! We recommend Dawn to ANYONE who is buying or selling a home!"

"Dawn was our agent for the selling process and she was fantastic to work with! Dawn always seemed ahead of the game; clear on what today's buyers are looking for, understands pricing, open and honest with feedback yet kind. I truly enjoyed working with her. And no matter how stressful the process can get, you know she's seen it all and was there to provide guidance throughout. You can't go wrong with Dawn as your agent!"

"My ex husband and I recently used Dawn to sell a home and buy new homes. Dawn held our hands through the whole process giving us valuable tips on which home improvements to do to help our home be the most marketable it could be and also staged our house for us just before putting it on the market. Once we got to the negotiation phase she handled everything graciously and helped us negotiate smartly and fairly. Dawn did all this with a lovely disposition, always upbeat, and always showing us that she knows this business inside and out and knows the area intimately. When it came time to buy homes she was very knowledgeable about neighborhoods and suggested homes that she knew were to my taste without ever being pushy. Dawn really gets to know her clients and goes the extra mile to make sure all the necessary details are taken care of. We both feel extremely fortunate that we had Dawn for this process. She is a class act in every way."

"Dawn is wonderful - so knowledgeable. She made it a smooth process! The best agent we have ever worked with!"

"Dawn is exceptional at her job! Her negotiation skills are impressive and she understood exactly what my wants and needs were. She made selling my home easy and buying a new home even easier. She has won me over as a client for life."

"Above and beyond would describe my experience with Dawn. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and helpful. Always level-headed during the process, which is necessary when selling or buying a home. I could always count on Dawn to "get things done"! I moved out of state, so there were several times I couldn't attend to matters, and they were always taken care of. Wonderful person and agent!"

"Dawn and Jennifer were both professional fun and personally supportive. I am blessed to know them as realtors and friends!"

"Dawn did an excellent job through a long difficult process selling our home. We feel very blessed to have had her as our agent. She works hard and goes above and beyond the call of duty. You are lucky to have her!"

"Wonderful experience working with Dawn Recchia!"

"We unfortunately had to do a short sale on our home. Dawn made the whole process stress free! Any time we had a question she was there to answer it. Even if we sent emails late in the evening most times we would get an immediate response. We couldn't have asked for a better Listing Agent!"

"She's a superstar! I enjoyed the process and didn't have any concerns. Hats off to Dawn!"

"Dawn worked very hard in marketing our home. Her knowledge of Thornwood homes is how we were able to have the upper hand in negotiating the price we wanted.""

"Thank you Dawn for a quick painless sale!"

"I do not know what I would do without Dawn. Buying a house and selling a house are so stressful and as a single mom Dawn took so much of that stress off of my shoulders. She always has my best interest at heart and I am ever so grateful."

"The only reason we can't use Dawn again is because we are moving to Florida but would recommend her to anyone!"

"This is our 10th move and Dawn is by far the best agent we have had. She's amazing to work with and very knowledgeable and helpful. She made our relocation to Illinois a breeze. I can't say enough about her."

"Dawn was patient in the long process it took to find the perfect home. Thanks so much Dawn!"

"Overall great experience to work with Dawn."

"Dawn was excellent and without her knowledge of the market and her ability to discuss and navigate it with us we would never have sold our house in the time frame we needed to."

"Dawn was exceptional through the entire process; quick to respond very knowledgeable and professional. Very enjoyable to work with most importantly."

"My house was on the market for a year prior to working with Dawn with another realtor. It never sold! The following year I listed my home with Dawn. Not only was she kind and supportive but she told me why my house was not selling and worked to fix it. She came in with items to stage my house and worked for hours making it perfect.  She taught me how to properly "show" my house and within weeks we had an offer.Every step of the way Dawn helped me by easing my concerns and answering all of my questions. On moving day she loaded up my car and saw to it that my family and I were settled in our new home. Dawn is a realtor that goes above and beyond."

"We had a fabulous experience working with Dawn.  She was  super responsive proactive and really cared about helping us to find the perfect home.  We always felt like we were a top priority and that she truly listened to us and tailored our showings accordingly.  Most importantly Dawn displayed a clear passion for real estate and she made our home buying experience memorable! We highly recommend her!!!"

"One of the most difficult decision in life is choosing the right home but lucky for us we were able to find a realtor and a friend in Dawn Recchia. In 2013 my husband and I decided to relocate from Southern California to Illinois (don't ask me why!). Through 2 years of searching we found our dream home thanks to Dawn.  I can't tell you how many houses and neighborhoods we looked at but Dawn was always there to give us honest feedback even to go as far as recommending a different realtor when it was an area where she was not as familiar with.  In the end Dawn helped us find the perfect home and neighborhood where our family continues to grow. Thank you Dawn!"

"Having an agent that understands the area is a big asset. Dawn did everything she said she would the testimony is how fast the house sold. I am one of two homes that sold within the first day so this shows it was not just our home. She also stages the home for the best views on-line and in person. thank you so much this part was easy."

"Mark and I have worked with several other realtors in the past and Dawn was by far (really no contest) the best we have ever worked with. She was very knowledgable a great communicator and incredibly trust worthy. The home selling/buying process can be really stressful and Dawn really helped take the edge off because we always felt like we were in good hands. I would recommend her to any and everyone!!!"

"Dawn was amazing! It is no wonder that she is #1 in South Elgin. I know she must be very busy but somehow she was always available whenever we needed her. And through our process we ran into situations where we needed a window repaired a plumber a roofer and Dawn was even able to help with all of those with GREAT referrals. Seriously could not have asked for a better agent on our side."

"It was a pleasure to work with Dawn in selling both our house and my mother in laws. Would highly recommend her!"

"We couldn't be more pleased with Dawn Recchia. She is very personalable and very professional in every way. She went above and beyond than what we would've expected to get our home sold. She was always available and helped us during a difficult move."

"Dawn was so helpful from beginning to end! She put me at ease from our very first meeting and she was always responsive to my texts and phone calls. Dawn gave me the best advice on what improvements to make before we put the house on the market and with her amazing staging skills we were able to get an offer way above asking price after only one day on the market! I'm so thankful for Dawn not only for her professional expertise but also for her cheerful and positive personality. It was such a joy to work with her!"

"Excellent excellent experience. Dawn was the best. Would highly recommend. Great communication and guidance."

"Dawn is a great realtor -- she goes the extra mile which sets her apart from the rest. She is honest upfront and easy to work with."

"Dawn is amazing! We felt comfortable and safe the whole time. Made it enjoyable experience."

"Dawn is the very best realtor ever and provided an overall experience more than I could have hoped for."

"Dawn is amazing! We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Her communication is best in class and her guidance during the selling/buying process far exceeded expectation. There's no way we could have navigated without her. Thanks to Dawn we now have our dream home!"

"I recently had to sell two houses in the event of my divorce. We have four children and you can imagine the physical and emotional toll especially when the divorce is not amicable. Dawn handled everything brilliantly and professionally including all negotiations not only with buyers but between spouses. She has impeccable communication skills and knows the clientele and in different neighborhoods exactly what needs to be done to get the house ready for sale. Listen to what she says she knows what she is talking about! From her creative staging abilities and team she works with for photography and her use of social media she gets the job done right and is always up front and honest. Bottom line is we sold the first house in two weeks and second house in ONE DAY. Dawn you are amazing thank you for everything!!!"

"Dawn was phenomenal to work with. She's high energy and upbeat all the time her attitude and being outgoing and happy was wonderful through this stressful time for us with a relocation. Dawn came in and staged our home for pictures and then staged AGAIN once we had everything of ours packed and loaded for shipping to our new location. Dawn literally made this process stress free because she did more than a real estate agent normally would. She was there to let people in she assisted us with referrals for lawn care and cleaning since we were already in our new area. Response time is impeccable for every text phone call or email we sent.. If you are looking for an agent that is going to take the extra steps and get it done Dawn Recchia is your lady!"

"Dawn went way above and beyond for my brother and myself. When our dad passed away and we were getting ready to sell the house and its contents Dawn not only gave us tips for the selling of the house but she assisted us with the estate sale. She put everything on social media (which we had no idea how to do or even that we could do it) she gave us suggestions for the estate sale and even came the first day of the sale to be sure we were doing OK (and the estate sale was great). Throughout the entire process (from the first time we met with her through the estate sale and the selling of the house) Dawn was with us . She sold the house in record time (one week). There is no doubt that we will not only use Dawn again but recommend her to anyone we know that is in the market to either buy or sell a house!"

"Dawn was absolutely incredible in every way as the agent of the sale of our home. From our initial meeting, the staging of our home and the sale and follow through if completing the transaction she exceeded our expectations. Dawn is incredibly responsive, enjoyable to work with and most importantly delivered incredible results quickly! I will certainly recommend her to all friends and family in IL!"

"Integrity and honesty are the hallmarks of Dawns business. For me to recommend a service to anyone, it must first meet my lofty standards. Dawn has surpassed those many times. I have in the past and will continue in the future to recommend her to friends and coworkers knowing she will work hard for them. Super high work capacity. Oh, and she has fun with it too!"

"We, unfortunately, had to do a short sale on our home. Dawn made the whole process stress free! Any time we had a question, she was there to answer it. Even if we sent emails late in the evening, most times, we would get an immediate response. We couldn't have asked for a better Listing Agent!"

"Dawn Recchia is an exceptional woman in a number of important ways, none perhaps more impressive than her eagerness to jump in and assist you regardless of the size of the deal. My wife and I have known Dawn since 2008 and she has sold our last two houses and helped us rent a third. Her capacity for work is enormous, but her eagerness for new tasks, challenges and opportunities is particularly impressive. Her communication skills are first rate and her talent for leadership, particularly in demanding, ambigious real estate situations is especially noteworthy. Dawn Recchia would not only be a worthy, capable teammate, she'd be a great friend to have on your side.”"

"Dawn is very personable and responds to inquiries or concerns immediately. As this was my first time selling a house, I had many questions throughout the process and Dawn's response rate was amazing - I never had to go more than a few hours to get an email response. Within days of putting our house on the market, we had an offer in and contract signed. Dawn also sent us regular emails advising on the market activity in our area. If I had another house to sell, I'd use Dawn again in a heartbeat."

"Dawn worked diligently to market and sell our home. Her knowledge of the area and it's amenities is unsurpassed. She was easy to work with and we really felt she cared not only about selling our home, but about us. If we ever have an opportunity to work with Dawn again, we definitely will!"

"Dawn is fantastic as a realtor! She is very knowledgeable, well prepared and personable. The sale of my home was very emotional and Dawn did an incredible job of keeping it professional and positive. I recommend her to all my friends!!"

"Dawn is wonderful, she knows everything about the area and is great to work with. She has your best interest in mind always."
