Dawn Nelson is the real estate broker you’ll feel as confident recommending to your boss as to your kid brother.
Why? Because she’s unflappable. Because her analysis of every client’s situation is both comprehensive and comprehensible. Because she can steer anyone through even the most complex transactions. And because her background in advertising, construction, and real estate investment makes Dawn the Swiss Army knife of Seattle real estate.
A True Local
Daughter of a carpenter and a real estate broker, Dawn grew up in a big family on Vashon Island. She maintains an investment portfolio of rental homes and condos in Seattle’s classic neighborhoods, including Queen Anne and West Seattle, and a mid-century modern home in West Seattle where she lives with her husband, Jeremy, and their standard poodle, Gus. She has been a leader in the stewardship of her community, serving for years on the Board of Directors of the West Seattle Food Bank.
Zest for Life
For such a serious businessperson, Dawn has plenty of un-serious hobbies. She messes around in the garden, she car camps, she reads undignified popular fiction. She hits as many movies as possible at the Seattle International Film Festival (subsisting on popcorn and Junior Mints, presumably). Connect with her on Facebook and you’ll be treated not only to enthusiastic posts about her latest listings, but perhaps one of her breathtaking photographs of the Great Wall of China or a shot of her stylish siblings walking Abbey-Road-style across an anonymous street.
Never Met a Stranger
Dawn connects easily with all kinds of people. She talks shop with other agents and doesn’t hesitate to introduce herself to the neighbors to understand the ins and outs of a particular house or block. She has great relationships with a long list of reliable tradespeople—and as Dawn’s client, your call gets answered. She counts clients all over the city as friends.
