“Mark Dawson was a dream to work with especially since we had several family challenges. He was a professional and always polite under those trying situations. And best of all he got our house rented in less than 10 days and they paid over the asking monthly rent, plus 4 months in advance.” Diane P., San Rafael

“Recently I was very fortunate to have the assistance of Mark Dawson while struggling with the death of my mom and dealing with her estate. Mark was caring and compassionate all while helping me to select the best options for dealing with her property. He put me in contact with a wonderful contractor who updated my mom’s home and made suggestions to make it more appealing to buyers in the current real estate market. He also priced my mom’s home in such a manner that I had multiple bids well over the asking price. Without his assistance I never could have avoided all the pitfalls of selling my mom’s home and for this I will always be grateful.” Donna R., San Rafael

“Mark Dawson did a superb job of selling my house. Initially he took me to several retirement communities to help me decide. After I chose one, he advised me on what the house needed done in order to sell it. He arranged for a painter and a landscape professional to come in and spruce my house up. When that work was completed, he put the house up for sale and it sold on the third day!” – Glennda L., San Rafael
