Dawn Lanier
Coldwell Banker Realty


 “We have known Dawn Lanier as a friend for many decades, but had never worked with her as a realtor until she recently assisted us in the sale of our home on Valburn Drive.  We cannot say enough about her professionalism, her work ethic, how focused she was on servicing the listing and her attention to detail.  We would recommend Dawn to anyone considering selling or buying a home in this highly competitive market.”

~Beth and Peyton Smith

“Dawn recently represented me in the sale of my home in The Courtyard on Scout Island, and she was always responsive, creative and knowledgeable. Dawn’s friendly and professional demeanor helped tremendously in negotiations and throughout the closing process.  She is an incredibly hard worker and absolutely client centered.  I would recommend Dawn to anyone in the process of buying or selling a home.”

~Audrey Gonzalez

"My sister and I were very happy with the expertise we received from Dawn in selling our Mother's home on Burney Drive. I've worked with several different real estate agents during the course of buying and selling seven homes.  Never have I worked with a more dedicated and professional agent than Dawn.  She understands the Austin market and gave us thorough comparative information, which was especially helpful since neither of us lives in Austin. Her presentation of the property through staging and on MLS was outstanding.  She was very helpful in all the details from suggesting vendors to doing the work herself.  She's not afraid to get her hands dirty in order to achieve the desired result.  Above all, her kindness and sensitivity to us concerning the loss of our Mother made it a pleasure to be in her good hands."

“Dawn represented us in the purchase of our first home.  Since we are new to Austin, we had no knowledge about the real estate market here, but Dawn guided us through the whole process very smoothly and we are very satisfied with our new home.  Dawn is very responsible, professional and familiar with the market.  Our calls were always answered quickly.  While viewing a home for sale, she always pointed out the flaws of the property that we did not notice.  When we decided to pursue a property, she always responded quickly, helped us with a suitable offer and provided valuable suggestions.  After we were under contract, she was even more helpful.  She helped us negotiate a contribution from the Sellers towards our closing costs.  She has introduced us to a lot of contractors during our property improvement and maintenance.  Dawn is very patient and nice.  We will surely recommend Dawn to anyone who needs a real estate consultant.”

“Dawn Lanier is an amazing realtor!  You won't find anyone who will work harder and be more dedicated than Dawn.  By following her helpful advice, the daunting task of selling and purchasing our homes was much more efficient and even pleasant with her at the helm. She spent countless hours with us during the selling/buying processes and always made us feel like we were very important to her. We no longer think of Dawn as our realtor, we think of her as our friend.  We recommend her, without reservation, to anyone looking to sell or buy.” 

~ Jeanne & Clint Tomlinson

"Dawn Lanier exceeded all of our expectations during our relocation to Austin. She was instrumental in locating a property that met all our needs. Her customer service was beyond outstanding; proactive and insightful at every step. She was honest, sincere and always delivered what she promised. She truly loves her job and it shows in the level of service she provides! We chose to use Dawn to help us find a house in Austin, but what we really got was a trusted advisor who was immensely helpful in so many areas...including schools, youth sports programs, tradesmen, restaurants, movers, etc. We couldn't have gotten through this move without her and we're happy to now call her a friend!"

~ Joe and Aimee Estes

 “They say that buying a home is one of the major decisions of life and like any other major decision, you need a true friend to not only support you, but also to tell you when you are not doing it right.  In Dawn, we clearly found a friend who just did not want to sell us "a house", but wanted to make sure we get one that we can call "home".  She did not take us through a large pool of houses for viewing over many weeks. Rather, she spent time to understand our preferences, did all the research and presented us with a very limited set to choose from. We loved the second house we viewed and, from there, she helped us at every step to make sure that we could win it. We not only benefited from her experience and knowledge about the market and the process, we also found her to be very resourceful. And most importantly, she continued to follow up even after we moved in to make sure that we did not need any help with anything related to the home. Dawn turned a difficult process into a pleasure trip. I will recommend her on any day to be your home buying "buddy".

"As a lender, I hear horror stories day in and day out of seller issues with contract negotiations gone wrong, buyers and sellers not coming to terms on repairs, and the dreaded issue of homes not appraising.  I can gladly say that I did not experience any of those issues.  I credit my transaction going so smooth all to Dawn!  From the get go I could tell that I was in good hands by her aggressiveness and knowledge of the market.  From start to finish, I was hands off and I feel that is how a real estate transaction should be when you are represented by an agent.  This was my 3rd home to list on the market and it was hands down my best experience.  I have many referral partners I could use, but I wouldn’t think twice about using Dawn for my real estate needs from here on out.  She is amazing!"

"I would like to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate Dawn Lanier. We are probably not your typical buyers as we have dealt in real estate for many years. I come from a family of real estate agents and I held my license for some time. Over the years, I have worked with many agents. I assure you, Dawn is one of the best. She was our Realtor for our recent purchase for our next home. She absolutely went beyond our expectations as we worked through the process of determining what was best for us. Any questions we had were answered immediately and completely. She never hesitated to make sure we were absolutely comfortable with the decisions that were being made. She is a great negotiator and went to bat for us on a couple of issues that could have been stumbling blocks. But she made it work.  I was impressed. I can, with great confidence, recommend Dawn to anyone looking to purchase property and I am sure she would also be an extremely effective listing agent. I have no doubt that we will be using Dawn again the next time we are ready to make another real estate investment."

~ Lynette and Brian Harness

"Dawn helped us purchase our beautiful home in The Courtyard at 5402 S Scout Island Cir and then sell our home. She did a great job pricing and marketing the property, negotiating the contract and orchestrating a smooth December closing on our behalf. Because she grew up in Austin, she knows the area well. Dawn worked hard for us and we highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs!"
