John is a very knowledgable and professional agent. He did a great job when showing houses; pointing out details and features of the homes. He knows our neighborhood well, pointing out the outlines of each neighborhood, and more desirable locations. But, he also knows when to step back and let you make your decision. He was both available and responsive, which comes in handy when needing to make a quick decision. Overall, our experience was great!

We found Dawn on Zillow. We told her what we were looking for and she had a long list ready for when we were in town next.She has been a huge help. We live out of state and travel a lot. Dawn was on top of the transaction and pretty much took care of everything for us. Even after we closed she has continued to help us with the property, set us up with contractors and kept an eye on the work for us. She has been a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her.

Working with Dawn proved to be a wise choice. She lives in the area and expertly knows about all the inner-workings of the area. She saved me a bunch of time by ensuring adherence to the criteria we laid out over the phone. I set up our meeting over the phone in New Mexico and knew very little about the area, and surprise, surprise, the first property she showed me is the one I bought. I was under a real time crunch to find a place, and she picked out a place that so far seems to be good value for money and a great place to live. Dawn's skill in interior design helped me envision the possibilities I had with each property she showed, and along with her husband, they helped make recommendations that will beautify the property and save me money. Dawn and her husband run a contracting business too, so they are better able to point out future problems and provide explanations on how repairs/beautification can be done. They are extremely professional, and never did they mention I should use them as contractors. In fact, they provided me with a bunch of options and recommendations on how I could avoid using contractors to save money. Less ... More

Dawn is an Atlanta neighborhood expert, much needed since we were new to the area. She is also low pressure and patiently showed us a range of houses and neighborhoods. Her husband is also unique advantage as he's an expert contractor (another area where e needed help). Thanks so much for the help, Dawn.

Dawn was an invaluable resource to us in finding our home! We found Dawn on Zillow, but as it turns out, she is also our neighbor in Midtown Atlanta. Once we started our search with Dawn, she helped us to explore not only Midtown, but many intown neighborhoods she felt would be a good fit for us. As recent transplants, it was hugely helpful to have a knowledgeable resource to guide us around neighborhoods, understand pros and cons of each, etc. We ultimately landed back where we started our search - in Midtown - and couldn't be happier - both about finding our home and that Dawn will remain a neighbor! We would recommend her to newbie and seasoned home buyers alike. Less ... More

Dawn fought for me until the very end. She fought for over $12,000 in repairs from the seller and was granted every single request for repair! Even after the sale was complete she kept in contact with me and wanted to know how I was doing.

We were relocating to Atlanta for work but weren't familiar with the Intown Atlanta neighborhoods such as Morningside, Virginia-Highland, Inman Park, Candler Park, etc. Dawn did a super job of showing us all of these neighborhoods and finding several house options that perfectly suited our needs.

Thanks so much! It was fun showing you two around Atlanta to select your neighborhood and new home. I think the lunch at Alons sealed the deal on the final selection :-)

Dawn served as our buying agent for my wife & I's first home purchase. She has decades of experience/knowledge in the Atlanta area & introduced us to neighborhoods in East Atlanta that we were not previously considering, but ended up loving due to the character & charm they carry over other spots like Brookhaven or West side (which we had thought was what we wanted). Given this was our first home purchase, we did not know what to expect & everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong (though problems were created from the other side of the contract, not Dawn). From the day we submitted our offer to closing (nearly 45 days later!) things were very complicated. Without Dawn's expertise, knowledge, & persistence, there is no way we would have gotten our dream home in Edgewood. We were very fortunate to receive a recommendation from our mortgage broker to utilize Dawn in the home-buying process. Additionally, Dawn has significant experience in home renovations & home-building through her design/build company Environs Residential. After closing there were a few projects that we wanted to have done & Dawn was able to recommend trusted companies with which to get the work done at a fair price. Bottom line, if you are looking to purchase a house in-town, you can't go wrong w/ Dawn & the ReMax Metro Atlanta Team. Less ... More

Dawn was very patient with us as we looked at different areas of town, and she is very easy to work with. She has been in Atlanta for over 15 years, so she is very familiar with areas of town. She also has good knowledge as far as what you can do with a house, especially if you are looking to do any renovations. I highly recommend Dawn as we are so pleased with our purchase, and the process was quite painless.

When I first contacted Dawn, I was on a short time frame and had a very specific need to do something quickly. I also tend to have an aggressive style of real estate purchasing that does not work well with most agents. Dawn assured me that she knew the market and would work with my style. We quickly reviewed hundreds of properties and she answered my market questions expertly, we looked at over 15 on our first day out and then another 12 on the next. I quickly narrowed down my choice to a top 5 list and began to throw out offers. Within 5 days we were under contract and closed in another 7 days. Dawn proved to be an excellent asset in this process and I would gladly work with her again on any real estate transaction - either buy or sell! Less ... More

Dawn really knows her stuff. We knew the neighborhood we wanted to live in, but weren't sure about available options- move in ready vs. fixer upper, short sales, foreclosures. She was able to advise us on all. We're SO excited about our new home and please with the knowledge, know how and help we received from Dawn. She was there every step of the way!!!

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Dawn Landau with Re Max is the definition of unprofessional. Make sure you ask her before setting up an appointment if there are any broker agreements that she wants you to sign before showing you properties, because she won't tell you until the night before your viewing. If you politely decline to sign until after your scheduled viewings, she will cancel on you with less than an hours notice. Then she will proceed to lecture you about "how business is done in Georgia" (false information), and top it all off by telling you she has "more important clients." Take a lesson from my experience and avoid her at all costs. Less ... More
Response fromDawn Landau
I'm sorry you feel this way David. You called me about properties just 3 days prior to the day you wanted to view them. I spent several hours preparing for your showings and did not ask you to sign a brokerage agreement. The day BEFORE we were to meet, I asked you to acknowledge that I was showing you property via an Agreement to Work with Buyer as a Customer GAR form. I did not ask for a pre-qual letter or a retainer fee, just a simple acknowledgement. I also agreed to meet with you to discuss your search and go over the agreement. Had you not gotten so angry on the phone, I'm sure we could have met and then gone to see property. I handle my business professionally at all times and am very sorry you were not happy with the process. Hopefully you found someone to help you... Less ... More

Very good agent who helped find places in multiple locations in the city within my price range. Ended up buying a place in a part of town other than where I had originally been looking, but am thoroughly pleased with it and like what I was able to get for the price compared with where I had originally be looking. Also is very knowledgable with the Invest Atlanta programs (like AtlantaLIFT and AAHOP) and was able to save me a ton of money by helping me with those downpayment assistance programs.

I highly recommend Dawn Landau for many reasons. 1) she has a very keen sense of the market, homes with hidden potential, and what will ultimately be a phenomenal investment and 2) even more importantly she knows what to avoid! We were in the market in Atlanta and looked through everything from a scraper and new build in Virginia Highlands to a beautiful renovation in O4W to what we ultimately (and happily) settled on...a 1930s Tudor with a koi pond and amazing backyard in Lake Claire. Dawn was with us every step of the way and brought expertise, positive energy and new ideas throughout. She is well networked and was able to bring in team members such as Terry Kitts, a builder who knows the reality of structural changes and issues. TRUST HIM! Terry and Dawn were able to very quickly steer us away from hidden disasters in what were seemingly beautiful listings. On a final note, Dawn has great taste on renovations and interior design - we are going to renovate a few things in our new home and look forward to her great ideas. It was fun to go house hunting as she was able to quickly see "what could be" better than I could. Let's face it - buying a new house in Atlanta isn't easy so I am very glad we had a great partner with a great team...we needed it and couldn't be happier. Less ... More

Dawn is a good realtor who is very knowledgeable of the Midtown Atlanta area. She was very responsive throughout the whole condo searching process, and remained available even after closing. Furthermore, she has her own home building company and brings many connections for any repair work that needs to be done. While there were a few bumps along the road, Dawn was able to adapt and coordinate with everyone involved to get the deal closed.

Dawn recently assisted my fiance and I purchase our very first home. As daunting as buying property can seem to first time home buyers, we felt very comfortable with Dawn as our agent. Dawn is extremely knowledgeable, capable, and organized and was always available to answer our questions and walk us through any part of the process we were unclear about. She gave us invaluable advice throughout the process and always made us feel like she was in our corner. While other pieces of the home buying process (financing, etc.) were slow or annoying at times, Dawn always turned things around quickly and accurately. Dawn really went above and beyond expectations by having her husband and business partner, Terry, walk through the house and property after our home inspection and Terry found a fairly large item the inspector missed, saving us money and future headache. We really liked the team approach to finding the right house for us and getting us the best deal. It really was a great experience working with Dawn and Terry and would recommend them to anyone. We absolutely love our new house!!! Less ... More

Having an excellent realtor who is knowledgeable about the local market and a good communicator is the key for a smooth and successful real estate transaction. Dawn?s communication skills made the process easy and helped us meet even the tightest deadlines. She was always available by phone, email, or text and even had backup coverage once when she had to go out of town. I was always able to get a response within an hour and was kept up to date throughout the entire process. In fact, Dawn even took the time to prepare and submit an offer for me while she was on a flight to the West Coast and was available while she was on vacation. I never felt like my needs were neglected at any time during the entire home buying process. When working with Dawn, you will feel like you are her only client due to her high level of personal attention that she will deliver to you. Dawn also has very keen analytical skills and was able to help me explore all of my options. She took the time to carefully analyze all of my options and pushed me to keep an open mind so that I would not miss out on any deals. There are so many variables to analyze besides price and location and having a realtor who can sort through all of these and provide an unbiased and fact based opinion is extremely valuable to any homebuyer. In fact, I would not be in my home today which I absolutely love if it was not for Dawn?s analytical skills and ability to spot a good deal and to do what it takes to successfully close the deal. In addition, Dawn is an actual in town resident and has firsthand knowledge on the in town Atlanta real estate market. Less ... More

Dawn was referred to me by a close friend. We met in person in March 2012 and it was around 6 months before I was in a position to buy. Despite being a non-resident of the USA, and being deployed in the Middle East with limited means of communication. Dawn found a way to overcome any difficulties we encountered, and got everything in order FROM ACCEPANCE OF OFFER TO CLOSING IN 11 DAYS! This allowed me to close in person during my limited time off. I couldn't have asked for more support.

Dawn has been prompt, organized and very professional in assisting us to look into potential new condos. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a condo/ house in the Midtown Atlanta area. She has great knowledge of the area and can also give you recommendations for finding contractors to do work or remodeling around your house. Dawn has been an absolute delight.

We first contacted Dawn and Terry when we thought we wanted to renovate our existing home. Our family had outgrown our 3/2 bungalow and we either needed a second floor addition or a new house. But, we loved our location and back yard. After meeting with Dawn and Terry, we decided to look at renovating our house, purchasing a lot for new construction, or buying an existing home that would meet our needs, all simultaneously. In our neighborhood, we needed to explore all options given the limited inventory of quality homes of the size and price range we were looking for. It was great working with Dawn and Terry because they brought a lot of additional knowledge to the table in terms of renovation, construction, and design expertise as we considered our options with various properties. After 6 months and several failed offers on lots, we came across the perfect house BEFORE it was listed. Dawn was exceptional in explaining our options, negotiating repair credits and dealing with a complex corporate relocation on the part of the seller. Terry brought in experts related to condition issues whose information assisted Dawn in negotiating for needed repairs the seller was very hesitant to accommodate. Finally, we got the deal closed and we are thrilled with our new home. We would use the Environs team again for real estate or renovation needs without a second thought?. Less ... More

Dawn was everything you would want in a realtor. She responded immediately to my request for assistance even though it was during the Christmas holidays. As a "first look" opportunity I only had 15 days to see the property, consider an offering price, consult with a contractor and submit the bid paperwork. My purchase involved quick action and an advocate with experience in the field. Dawn satisfied both of those needs. When it looked like I wasn't going to get my house, Dawn encouraged me to hang in there and relentlessly advocated for me with the seller. Without Dawn, I don't think I would have gotten my house. I have recommended her to my friends and would recommend her to you. Less ... More

The first thing that impressed me about Dawn was that she expertly and concisely described her areas of expertise. I knew I wanted to buy in midtown and I was immediately confident that Dawn had an extensive amount of experience in the area. After one or two showings I was also very happy to see that Dawn picked up on the style and feel of the properties I would be interested in and narrowed the search appropriately. It was also very nice to have someone that keeps on top of current technologies. I received and signed all of my paperwork electronically and Dawn was as comfortable answering my texts as my phone calls. This flexibility was incredibily helpful during my hectic move into a new job across state lines. On top of her real estate acumen Dawn also has a lot of experience with construction and design to complement her ability to identify high quality properties. Thanks for the great experience, Dawn!

Dawn Landau began to work with us months before she got the listing for our recent real estate transaction. As a neighbor and friend, she offered valuable advice on how to effectively market the property and on what to update and what to not update. When we were unsuccessful with marketing our home for sale (with other realtors) we enlisted Dawn's help with marketing it for lease and handling the management of the rental property itself. Dawn owns properties in the Midtown Atlanta area and we were confident that this expertise uniquely positioned her to understand the market our home is located in. Once she represented us, we were awed by her routine and frequent updates, immediate implementation of a targeted marketing plan, and ultimately results: she found us a qualified tenant within ONE WEEK of listing! We, without hesitation recommend Dawn; she is a professional, knowledgeable, and service-oriented realtor. That was in early 2012. Fast forward one year, and a very successful lease term, and Dawn convinced us that it was the right time to sell. We were VERY hesitant, but when our tenant decided not to renew we decided to list with Dawn. And she did it again! After only one week and three offers, we sealed the deal and closed. What continues to work with Dawn is her deep knowledge of the area AND her well-tuned instincts. It also helps that she has a solid support person in Walter. No detail went undone. We are very satisfied and would enthusiastically recommend her. Less ... More

We met Dawn after calling on her NSP listing in the Edgewood neighborhood of Atlanta. She met us there, showed us the home and clearly explained the NSP (Neighborhood Stabilization) program to us. We LOVED the house but realized after talking with Dawn, that we did not qualify for that program. However, we still needed a home and Dawn felt like a great fit for us. We had a strong desire to be in a close-in neighborhood and wanted good schools and a safe and comfortable location. We also were open to doing some renovation work to get a home in the right area and Dawn has design and construction expertise which we knew would be helpful if that happened to be the route we took. As it turned out, we found a fantastic home in the Decatur neighborhood of Midway Woods. I was newly renovated so no work was required and Dawn helped us ensure all the work was code compliant and properly permitted. It was a smooth transaction and we got a great price in a neighborhood we know we are going to enjoy.

We met our realtor, Dawn Landau, in late 2011 via the Zillow.com website/iPad appA. Our situation was such that we had to relocate to Atlanta quickly but we weren't able to pay a high premium for the convenience of purchasing a home quickly. At the time we were in South Florida and primarily looking at properties in Atlanta online. We submitted quite a few inquiries to various realtors about properties. One of the first replies we received was from Dawn. What struck us immediately was that it was not a form response and she took the time to give us additional information on the Atlanta area and address potential concerns. Not only was Dawn very knowledgeable about the area, she was very internet savvy, and made it easy for us to access a lot of information on prospective properties and make notes or ask questions. When we finally met Dawn, it was obvious that she had done her homework. She took us to quite a few homes that met all of our criteria and knew so much about the area and surrounding schools and businesses. When we finally decided on a place, Dawn fought for us aggressively, getting the price point within our comfort zone. Flash forward to New Years and we are in our beautiful new place in midtown! This experience has gone so quickly and smoothly and it has really been a joy to work with our realtor, Dawn Landau. We have been through a few home sales now, and this stands out as the most professional and thoughtful transaction. We highly recommend Dawn Landau with Remax! She is still in touch with us, making sure we are settling in and that the move has been smooth. If you are considering a new place, talk to Dawn. Less ... More
