My wife and I first met Dawn 3 years ago through my sister. We were looking to move south from Westchester county NY and we wanted to be by the beach. I knew we were at least a year away before we would be ready to make the move. I gave Dawn a call to let her know we wanted to see what we could afford in several areas in our price range. Dawn set us up on the MLS listing site so we would receive all the new listings and information on homes.  Dawn knew we were at least a year away from actively looking for a place, but she knew the importance of building a customer relationship and planting the seeds in the sales process, so they could bear fruit farther down the line.  She suggested to choose several properties and she would schedule a visit to show the various homes and towns, so we could see what we could expect in our budget. My wife and I picked several places between Ocean and Monmouth county that we wanted to take a look at. Dawn spent the better part of the day taking us around to walk through these listings. A year later when we were ready to make the move we contacted Dawn and she didn’t miss a beat.  Her ability to schedule all the visits, communicate and be available to us was very appreciative and as we walked through these homes, she made my wife and I feel confident that we were with the right realtor. She was always prepared and well organized.  We ended up finding a house after several months of looking. Dawn was always attentive to our needs, knew the answers to our questions or where to find the answer, even when she was out of town she made herself available to us. Dawn walked us through the entire buying process and gave us a secure feeling that she was going to make sure our best interests were being taken care of, a unique quality now a day.  Upon our closing and receiving her commission check, she did not just cut ties and run, just the opposite. She continued to help us with our transition to our new home and area. My wife and I believe these are the experiences that all of her customer’s must have. Because of our experience with Dawn it is clear to see why she has received such a high honor of distinction amongst her peers. We appreciated everything Dawn did for us and we consider her not just our realtor but a friend.     - Rick  & Susan S.

 


As a first time home seller I was a bit daunted about the process, but Dawn Kologi of Gloria Nilson & Co. quickly eased my concerns, and thoroughly explained all requirements and helped me manage expectations. I was impressed with the comparable analytics package for the Manalapan neighborhood that Dawn provided, which helped us in setting on an appropriate asking price for the home.  This was an estate sale, so there were many emotions involved, and Dawn really understood my situation and the difficulties involved.  Dawn answered all my questions and responded quickly to my messages. She was always accessible and reached out to me to make sure I was comfortable with the process.  Selling any house is a hectic undertaking, but Dawn often had me laughing which eased the experience.  Once the house was listed and the "For Sale" sign was up, Dawn worked tirelessly setting up appointments and there was a steady stream of interested buyers. The house sold quickly after receiving multiple offers, and I signed a contract on the fourth day after listing!  Dawn has very strong negotiating skills and made sure I had a very profitable, as well as fun, experience selling the house.  She explained all the legal details of the contract which helped me feel very secure in signing. Dawn worked closely with my lawyer and made sure I was well protected when the buyer initiated some additional requests that were not in the contract.  She had my back in every way!
When I needed a mover - much sooner than I ever imagined - Dawn gave me recommendations for moving companies from her list of contacts.  This was very helpful and made for a smooth transition.  To sum up, Dawn Kologi is an experienced, savvy, intelligent and knowledgeable real estate professional, a high energy individual who clearly loves her job, and is a caring and warm person whom you will love working with. Whether you are buying or selling, I highly recommend Dawn as your real estate agent.   -Kathleen R.

 

 

 

2016 was a very exciting year for me.  I decided to sell my house and downsize.  Traumatic as that can be for a widow of about 1 year at that time.  I found not only a terrific realtor, but a friend who patiently dealt with my fears and doubts.  I even took my house off the market once because I choked.  Dawn never put pressure on me.  She worked hard to get me in to see and measure the place I ultimately purchased several times because I needed to be sure.  When Dawn was unable to accommodate me, she had her associate Joann Roddy take over.  Dawn made sure I saw what I needed to see when I needed to see it.  She is a dedicated Realtor.  I love my house and I am very grateful I had a Realtor who understood how difficult and scary this was for me.  -Charleen B.
