What do Clients Say?

I've known Dawn for over four years, initially through our fitness and wellness center (as a client) and ultimately as my real estate guru. Her thoughtful guidance through “what to” and what not to do” during my first house flip as well as my own home upgrades saved me significant amount of money and ensured I got top $$ during the sale process. Dawn’s approach to becoming your listing agent is significantly different to what I’ve seen with other agents. She invests her time and money into nurturing her relationship with the clients, providing them valuable feedback without “sales pitches” and truly caring about the outcome. She has built a reputable network of home service providers (mortgages, maintenance, moving assistance, inspections, etc) and can quickly connect you with the right person during an often stressful time of buying or selling a home. Dawn is very personable, knowledgeable and dependable. During the sale of my first investment property in April 2017, she went above and beyond in all respects, from preparing comprehensive sale comps reports, to providing me with daily updates on new listings, to being available on short notice and responding to my e-mails and/or calls from early in the morning until late in the evening. Her relentless work ethic resulted in the house being sold right before it went on the market (Day 0!) with $70k above what we thought we could get for it before getting Dawn on board. Overall, this was a great experience and I will continue working with Dawn and highly recommending her services to my friends, family and co-workers as she is the one to beat!

Dawn negotiated a complex multiple property transaction and demonstrated her expertise throughout the process. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, the process and advocated for us the entire time. She is an excellent negotiator and overall a great fun person to work with. I would encourage all to work with Dawn Pugh! Five Stars in my opinion!

After having a terrible experience with a different realtor, Dawn came in and saved the day. She sold our home in a short time, and was a true advocate for me throughout the whole process. Her availability at any time, her professional but warm demeanor and her strong desire to help her customers achieve only the best results set her apart from the rest. I would not only recommend her, but further state if you do not use her you are making a mistake. I can't thank Dawn enough for her help and partnership. I would use her again if I had the chance.

Dawn Pugh is not only an amazing real estate agent but she is also destined to become one of the shining stars of Charlotte’s ever growing real estate market. I know several first time homebuyers and real estate investors who have become increasingly frustrated with the lack of well qualified and trustworthy real estate professionals in the Charlotte metro area, and it’s no wonder. Before meeting Dawn, I met with several real estate agents, and most (if not all) were only interested in making quick sales without putting their client’s best interests first. As the market in Charlotte has heated back up, agents aren’t going to “waste” their time actually getting to know their clients. This is where Dawn is different and a diamond in the rough. She is more interested in building long term relationships with her clients and she always goes the extra mile to ensure no stone is left unturned in finding the most suitable properties for each client. Dawn and I have been involved in several difficult negotiations over the last year, and she has shown herself to be resourceful, diligent, and a quick thinker. Even during times of duress when we’ve had to deal with incompetent selling agents or unscrupulous sellers, Dawn has never lost her poise and always updates me with vital information—both good and bad. What is the best compliment I can give another person, professional or otherwise? Trustworthiness. If you are on the fence about choosing a good agent in Charlotte, stop and think about the importance of trust and honesty. Dawn is far and away one of the most honest and trustworthy professionals in any field I have ever met, and you can fully entrust her to look at out for your best interests

Dawn was patient, thorough and worked very hard on our behalf. Despite a difficult process negotiating an estate sale, Dawn kept us on track and always kept us informed of the progress. She also gave great advice throughout, helping us to gain insight into the sellers and listing agent. My wife and I would recommend Dawn to anyone looking to buy in the Plaza Midwood or NoDa neighborhoods
