06/22/2018 - Robert G Adams

As a first time home buyer, I was completely unfamiliar with the process. Dawn kept me informed step-by-step of what was happening and what I needed to do next. Her attentiveness and knowledge made it a smooth experience from start to finish.

She is fantastic to work with during every step of the home buying and selling process. She is down to earth and listens to exactly what you want and need, which makes a somewhat stressful experience more fun. She is prompt, polite, professional and genuine. She is very knowledgeable about the local housing market and is quick to respond to inquiries. I highly recommend Dawn, she is very good at her job.

Dawn was very responsive to my needs as a home seller, and provided excellent communication throughout the entire process. This made the process much easier and enjoyable!

01/17/2018 - Nick Beyer

Dawn is an excellent agent. Choosing an agent is very hard but we are glad we made the decision we did to go with Dawn. She is very prompt with follow-up and guided us through the entire process. Our sale was a bit more challenging because it involved a relocation company. If anyone is trying to make a decision, I’d definitely recommend Dawn!

12/13/2017 - darlenebenesch

Dawn was absolutely wonderful. We couldn’t have asked for a better agent. She was always very responsive and went the extra mile for us. We hadn’t sold and purchased a house in many years and she walked us through the process every step of the way. Beyond knowing her business extremely well, we also found her to be a very honest and caring person. Would highly recommend Dawn for any real estate needs.

09/22/2017 - MissyKohn

Dawn is amazing at what she does. I feel she went above and beyond for us when dealing with our home search. She was always giving us listings that might or might not work for us to help us narrow down what we were looking for exactly. Not to sound cheesy, but she was our guardian angel when it came to buying our new home. It's a shame we will not be house searching again because I would choose Dawn again any day!!

07/23/2017 - rlmanigold

Dawn was our Agent for selling our home and buying our acreage in 2004. When it came time to sell our acreage, we contacted Dawn. She was able to take care of everything to complete the sale in Minnesota while we were living in Florida. Dawn is professional, reliable, and works with you to get the best results if buying or selling.

06/15/2017 - engstromcampout

We trusted Dawn Swalve to sell our cherished home, even though we were three hours away, and she was reliable for keeping us informed and escorting us through the processes.

05/23/2017 - Kylejnelson7

Dawn was an absolute pleasure to work with. Dawn was very helpful with our recent land purchase. Dawn is quick to respond to questions, very knowledgeable, proactive in ensuring all paperwork and documents are ready to go, and fun to work with. She knows the local area very well, and as long as you have an idea of what you're looking for, Dawn can show you options that fit the bill. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for real estate around the Freeborn County area.

05/22/2017 - Tricia Nelson

Dawn really went above and beyond to help us purchase our dream property. From helping us find exactly what we were looking for, to ensuring that everything went smoothly from the time we put in our offer to closing, I can't say enough about how easy she made the whole process! We look forward to working with her again when we sell our current house! Highly recommend!

01/31/2017 - zuser20151203142051619

Dawn is the person that you want to have when dealing with houses. She knows what she is doing, she has an awesome personality, and she gets the job done. Dawn impressed us and we will use her again in a heartbeat. Don't waste your time looking for a realtor, contact Dawn Freeman Swalve right away.

01/27/2017 - urcbuilt

Could Not have had a better experience! Dealt with other So called real estate professionals and the level of service was not even close to what Dawn provided my wife and I. The sale of our Estate went flawless with all expectations met above and beyond. Would recommend to anyone buying or selling property.

01/26/2017 - elizabeth underdahl

My husband and I were very happy with all of the hard work from Dawn! The photos of our home were exceptional as well as her knowledge and responsiveness. Our home sold within 6 days! We couldn't have asked for more, what a great experience!

09/08/2016 - denny hall48

Dawn has helped me purchase some investment properties in the past as well as listed my properties for sale. She has a great knowledge of the community and gives very professional service. I highly recommend using Dawn as your realtor if buying or selling!

08/05/2016 - keil83

Dawn was our first real contact in the Albert Lea area. As the house buying process can be very stressful, Dawn made it smooth and quick. Her quick responsiveness, willingness to think outside of the box to make our requests a reality, and knowledge of the area, I'd personally recommend Dawn as your next realtor.

05/25/2016 - sara8950

Dawn was great at getting us in to see houses in a timely manner even when it required rearranging her schedule to do so. She was very knowledgeable about any questions we asked and was available even after hours. She did her homework to let us know the history of the house, current expenses for the house, etc. Once we had found our perfect house, she submitted the required paperwork and got the ball rolling immediately. She forwarded any responses or information we needed with minutes. We then needed to list our house and she gave us pointers on things we should do before listing to get the most money out of the sale. She recommended a price to list and the house sold in one day! She was there for any follow-up questions and issues even after the sale/purchase of these homes. She is an amazing realtor and I would recommend her in a heartbeat! She definitely is in it for you and makes you feel like a priority! Thanks Dawn for all you did for us!!?

Dawn is a very effective communicator. She is also very honest in her comments and attempts to provide the best service possible to her clients. She listens attentively and provides totally honest responses. Dawn is most helpful as you try to sell your home and works diligently to keep you in the loop as the sale progresses. She respects your requests and opinions and works to be your representative as you would expect. We were totally satisfied with Dawn's service and knowledge of the market.

03/15/2016 - sueannkott

We have worked with Dawn both as a buyer and a seller and have recommended her to friends. She is a pleasure to work with, always prompt and organized with the paperwork. With her knowledge of the local area she is so helpful with the little questions and details that crop up. We were out of town during our final sale and had complete trust that she would cope with everything for us and and our buyer.

09/24/2015 - cdmiller62

Dawn is easy to work with and she cares about you. I was real happy that my son and daughter-in-law decided to give Dawn a call to help us put my acreage up for sale. She was very helpful in suggesting a price for it but wasn't pushy in what she thought. Dawn let us decide on what we thought we should get for it and she got it sold in less than a week!

09/24/2015 - virginia549

We were blessed to have Dawn as our agent. We had some issues during our banking process once a home was found and she was truly a god send. To be honest we will never use anyone but Dawn in the future. If you need a realtor to sell your home in the Albert Lea area there is no one better. If you are looking for a realtor to help you find your dream home there is no one better. She went above and beyond the call even when she was on vacation, training weekends and Sundays. No matter the reason or question we had she took the time to find solutions, show us homes and worked hard for us. As my late father would have said she is a keeper!

09/24/2015 - rlbachtle

From the start Dawn was working towards the sale of our home along with being professional , she was also concerned about the buyers and our best interest and kept us informed of all aspects ! Would recommend her by far as the best realtor in Albert Lea!

09/01/2015 - zuser20140226103403910

Helped us immensely in the sale of our home even though we were 500 miles away. Was able to answer any question and went the extra mile on every detail of our transaction. Thank you Dawn!

07/01/2015 - ne austin

Dawn showed us many homes over the course of more than a year while we where looking for a new home. She was always available when there was a home we were interested in, and didn't put us under any pressure. When we eventually settled on a home we wanted to buy, we had a great experience with the closing, etc. Once we were moved, we listed our old house with Dawn as well. She kept us up to date on all the showings and encouraged us as it took a while to land an offer. All the paperwork, and closing details were made easy for us - even though the other party had some unexpected delays with their lender at closing (it all worked out for everyone). Thanks Dawn - we appreciate all your help!

05/28/2015 - jamandersen

Dawn was very easy to work with! She was quick to answer any questions I had and helped me make a quick sale on my home. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a knowledgable and dependable relator!

05/23/2015 - jensen56036

Dawn was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional and very knowledgeable plus she has a great sense of humor. She found us our perfect little house.

05/18/2015 - alicia reyes911

Dawn was an amazing realtor for my husband and I as we bought our first home! Dawn was very knowledgeable about the houses, prices, quality, offers, etc. She really made it a great experience for us and we hope you pick her as a way to guide you through purchasing a home! THANK YOU DAWN!! :)

05/14/2015 - tj6849

Dawn was very professional and knowledgeable in helping my sell my home and find another home to suite my family's needs. Dawn provided us with up-to-date information on new properties as soon as they came available. We would definitely use her for future real estate services!
