"Dawn Knief is an absolutely amazing person and real estate agent! She has a commanding knowledge of Scarsdale and Southern Westchester. Dawn has helped us buy and sell 3 properties in Scarsdale. We first worked with Dawn when we wanted to “upgrade” within Scarsdale about 15 years ago. Dawn spent a great deal of time getting to know us and learning about what we wanted in a home. Dawn's insights into the market, local culture, and property assessment were invaluable to us. We eventually found an amazing home in a neighborhood that was perfect for our family. We loved our home from when we moved in, when our children were in Elementary School, until we sold it after they graduated from college! Dawn is highly motivated, competent and fun to work with. She did an outstanding job staging our homes, went above and beyond what was expected, and did an exceptional job pricing our homes. We had multiple offers on both properties - which is especially remarkable since the sale of our second home was an especially challenging market. Dawn consistently kept us calm, focused and energized. We could not have had a better experience than we had with the Dawn. We recommend Dawn Knief without reservation!" - Steve and JoAnn M.
We are enthusiastic members of the Dawn Knief fan club. She is all about getting it done. We listed two of our "Beyond Green" homes with her and she was tireless in her efforts to sell each one. Her energy, tenacity, and commitment are exactly what you want when buying or selling. We are both happy and proud to call Dawn our realtor now and into the future.
Dawn has helped us buy 4 homes in Scarsdale, sell one and rent two. She is a very knowledgeable agent in the market, whether on the buy or sell side. I highly recommend her.
Dawn has been my real estate agent in both selling and purchasing several homes in Scarsdale. She is extremely proactive, resourceful, and attentive. I could not recommend a more qualified agent!
I wanted to share my experience with Dawn with the LinkedIn population. I met her largely by chance when someone I knew was trying to help me find an apartment for one of my daughters. Dawn was helping a friend/client find a suitable renter for a property he owned...not by any means an endeavor motivated by any pot of gold at the end. More accurately, Dawn simply liked the friend/client very much, and was just trying to help him find a tenant, who would be easy and respectful. (I understand Dawn spends her time handling real estate sales, and that finding a tenant for a friend is small potatoes). I met Dawn at the apartment and was impressed on sight by how real she was. We spoke for a few minutes and felt my daughter and her friend would be a good fit for her friend/client. She then set up a meeting for the next day with the friend/client, without delay, hesitation or problem. I met with the friend/client the next day, and we completed the deal shortly thereafter. I wanted to write a recommendation for Dawn because she took time out of her very successful real estate world, where she is acclaimed, and has been featured in the media, to help her friend, and help me, whom she had never met before. They teach the lesson that nice guys/gals finish first at all the preeminent business schools in the country. Dawn impressed me as being one of those nice gals...as busy and as successful as she is. I would recommend her to anyone who has any real estate need.
"Dee went above and beyond to help find the right home for our family. We were moving from London so needed someone with great local knowledge. We had a number of international calls to discuss new properties coming online and created a shortlist of houses that met our criteria. My husband then flew ahead to start his new role, at which time Dee was able to drive him around all of the properties we'd agreed. We couldn't have done it without Dee and I feel very fortunate to have found her in our search. I would definitely recommend Dee, especially to families and expats. She's moved internationally herself and has children attending Westchester schools, so she gets it!" - Kate, Scarsdale
I am very happy and grateful to Dee for her support in finding me a house. Extremely patient and flexible, she very quickly understood what exactly I was looking for (before I did!) and was sorting out my shortlisted houses in a way that allowed us find a house we liked very quickly. Her response time is incredible, I was getting a reply from her within an hour max, regardless of the time (weekends, late hours). What I liked in particular is the fact that she gave us full leverage to choose from multiple options without imposing her opinion. I would wholeheartedly and fully recommend Dee to anybody looking for a help and my fellow expats in particular." - Gelfiya, Edgemont
"Dee was wonderful in responding to all my needs. I live in Hong Kong, so it was very important for me to have someone completely in charge of my listing. She kept me regularly updated, and went above and beyond her call of duty by liaising with painters, superintendents, management companies, as well as previous tenants. Her hard work and dedication ensured that all parties concerned were full satisfied with her service. I would recommend Dee to anyone looking for a friendly, enthusiastic real estate agent who knows the market well." - Jennifer, Hong Kong
