Dawn Braithwaite "THE ACCENT" of Real Estate®
Keller Williams Village Square Realty


My Realtor.
Dawn Braithwaite was recommended to me by my former husband, who had expressed his complete satisfaction with her help in selling his house.After signing on with Dawn, I also found that she was very helpful in her presentation of my condo staging it and bringing in plants to enhance the appearance and by taking beautiful pictures.
She was always considerate of my needs and was able to sell my condo in a short period of time. I was impressed by the fact that she always answered my phone calls immediately and was always cheerful in all our conversations.

I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of selling or buying a house.

Yours truly,
Hilda Blair

To Whom it May Concern,
My husband and I began “hunting” for our first home in the late summer of 2009. Unfamiliar with Bergen County and feeling pressure to move quickly (I was four months pregnant), we knew that we’d be quite reliant on our Realtor to navigate the market, offer lots of advice, and take the lead. Thank goodness we found Dawn!
From the first time we met her, Dawn was continually professional, energetic and personable. She spent a significant amount of time preparing before each of our visits(providing us with house details & maps) so that our search would be efficient and effective. Not only did she answer our questions and address our concerns when they arose, but she also made knowledgeable recommendations on how to renovate and expand some of the older homes we were interested in.
We did eventually find the perfect home for our growing family and I’m happy and pleased with the care and patience that dawn dedicated to our search. She is definitely someone who will work very hard to help find the right home foe you and your family!

Dear Dawn,
I wanted to take a moment now that the real estate dust has cleared to say THANK YOU for all of your efforts as my real estate agent to sell my home in Ho-ho-kus. As a neighbor and a friend, you knew how attached I was to the house after 10 years and countless projects and you guided me to a sale that got the price I needed to be able to let it go.

I really appreciated your advice and guidance in staging and organizing the house prior to putting it on the market and then guiding me through the sales process until we got a sale. You were so helpful putting together open houses and making suggestions to make the house show it’s best and in the end I know all of your attention to detail made a difference to allow me to get a buyer who would appreciate the house and all of it’s charm.

I know it wasn’t easy to bring the suggestions to adjust the price and yet you did your homework each time and made solid recommendations to make sure the house stayed top of mind to the buyers in the area. All of your marketing efforts really paid off as well – I especially liked that you had the floor plans for the house available for prospective buyers both in the hard copy marketing materials and on the website.

Dawn, you seem to really have a gift for being a realtor and I know you will continue to be successful given the drive and energy you put into every aspect of the process. Even in a difficult market you’ve shown that you have what it takes to make sales happen!

Thanks again for everything!

All the best,
Sandra Kluttz

Dear Dawn,
Lee and I wanted to express our sincere thanks for the way you managed the sale of our home. Since this was not the first time we sold a home, we were familiar with working with other realtors. Without a doubt, you are by far the best, most professional agent we have ever had the pleasure to work with.

No detail was left unnoticed and your market analysis was extensive and above our expectations. Given the housing market at the time of our sale in 2010, we feel it was not just the home but your efforts in marketing our home that got us multiple offers and above our asking price.

You had our best interests first and foremost and it showed in every aspect. You made yourself available to us and kept us posted and updated especially during the home inspection period, which can be a stressful part of the negotiations.

Thank you for making the process of selling our home as stress free as possible and for your well organized, thoughtful endeavor.

We wish you only continued success!

Best wishes,
Lee and Kathleen Swearer

Dear Dawn,

I want to express to you how so fortunate I feel, to have had you as our listing agent and how wonderful it was working with you.
When I chose you it was strictly on a gut feeling and you proved me right. My home received so much exposure through you because you are so well liked among your peers, and your remarkable talent for politicking impelled other agents to want to show my home. The exposure was tremendous!
I want to thank you for being there through all phases of selling our home and for the many times you went “above and beyond”, to make sure things went smoothly.
The “bidding war,” my home went into, which is every seller’s dream, was due to your deep understanding of the real estate market and your negotiating capabilities, your actions produced ultimate results for us.
Out of the 3 couples bidding, your intuitive business sense guided me to choose the right couple to make the deal with. I will be forever grateful. Thank you Dawn.
Best regards,
Diane Shields

Dear Dawn,
Thank you so much for all your help, support and hard work that went into selling our house in Ramsey and buying another in Ho-Ho-Kus. Your staging, extra touches, floor plan and DVD are examples of just how much effort you put into your work. In these tough economic times, you made sure the house was in the best condition and you gave us good counsel to achieve a sale.

Always professional, energetic, cheerful and patient, you worked tirelessly with us to find the home we were looking for. We were very happy to work with you and are happy to know you. We would recommend you to anyone looking for a dedicated, capable and exceptional Realtor.

Beginning in the spring of 2009 my wife and I began a search in the Bergen County area for a Home to move into with our two young children and two dogs. Our search was a unique challenge as the market was a terribly disjointed market where price discovery was becoming more of an art than a science given the recent market events that began in early 2008. Our price range was 1.250‐2mm dollars.Victoria and I have bought and sold several homes over our 17 years together but never had we had the stress associated with this particular move. Our two boys were under the age of 3 and our lease was expiring on in September.
We, at the beginning of our search, were working with another agent before meeting Dawn Braithwaite at an open house in Ramsey, NJ. Upon meeting Dawn we made her our exclusive agent. She impressed us in many ways. Dawn’s organizationalskills, time management, intuition as to our needs, and her great ability to listen are what compelled us to join her team in finding our home.
Dawn quickly began the search for us and we quickly started to feel more comfortable that we would find the house of our dreams and didn’t feel rushed. She gave us good advice, as to our lease situation, which bought us time in regards toour search. We felt more in control with Dawn being on our team.
As certain homes became interesting to us the price discovery issue loomed quite large. The gap between buyers and sellers expectations in 2009 was the largest perhaps ever in the real estate business (especially in the > 1.5mm dollar range).
We found 3 homes that we made offers on which we walked away from on Dawn’s advice as the sellers were unrealistic as to the current market value (these homes remain unsold in 2011).
We finally settled on two homes in Ridgewood, NJ. We were making an offer on one but then decided to seek Dawn’s advice on a dream home but one that seemingly was over our budget. Dawn had done some extensive market analysis and gave us confidence that we could be aggressive and go for it as the sellers were motivated in her opinion.
We got the house of our dreams for 1.710mm dollars and couldn’t be happier. If it wasn’t for meeting Dawn we would be in a much less desirable neighborhood with a smaller property and house. Dawn Braithwaite through her tireless love for the business and people far exceeded our expectations. We would and do recommend Dawn Braithwaite to anyone looking for a home.

Thank you once again for all your hard work
Dear Dawn,
We want to thank you once again for all your hard work in selling our New Jersey house. You are a model agent and we will recommend you to any of our friends up there when they get ready to sell their house. I know this is a tough economy and market, so we feel really fortunate that we chose you to get the job done. We had our share of frustrating moments while on the market, but you were always there problem solving and responsive to our needs and concerns. Thank you for all you did.
Thank you too for the gift for our new home. The wines were delicious and we will love using the decanter and think of you each time we do. That was so thoughtful of you.
I apologize that it has taken so long to get this letter out to you. The job of moving and then settling in was very time consuming and exhausting, and we’re just now starting to see the light of day!! We love being back in Georgia and our new home is great. I promise that I will take some pictures soon so you can get an idea of what we bought.
Again, many thanks to you. We hope you have a very Happy Holiday Season!

With our sincere appreciation,
