Dawn Griffin on Zillow

I am a repeat customer, and the reason is Dawn! Dawn and her team made this complicated process easy again – helpful and thorough information, explanation of each step and when that step needed to happen. The sale of this home was part of the process to move my Mom to Assisted Living, so I was on an emotional roller coaster. Dawn’s team realized how hard selling my childhood home would be for both for my Mom and for me. If you want professionalism, compassion, and follow-through to handle your house transaction, then go to the Dawn Griffin team.
Missy, North City

Dawn has incredible patience when explaining the entire purchase process and made 100% sure that we were confident in understanding what was going on before moving to the next step. So much so that we now went back to her 7 years later to sell that home and purchase our dream home. The persistence and expert handling by her and her team made that dream happen.
The Gilberts, Ladue

I highly recommend Dawn Griffin’s group at Circa Properties. She really knows St. Louis and is a fantastic resource for city activities and neighborhoods. Dawn helped me find and buy my first home 9 years ago and her team helped me find and buy my multi-family this year. She and her team are patient, good listeners, great at finding and examining the possibilities and responding to questions. She follows through and helps out with all the extras during and after the home purchase. Dawn is great for that “cold feet” call; she will sit with me and answer questions but never push or press towards a decision. Lance was tireless in looking at houses, and has great insight into construction that helps me see potential vs. problems – and also knows the city neighborhoods in their minute detail.
Heidi, Tower Grove East

Dawn Griffin is a real estate pro! My husband and I were first-time sellers and Dawn made the process easy. With Dawn’s help we had 15 full-price offers after only 5 days on the market. Dawn advised us on which repairs were necessary and which we could skip. She connected us with local contractors who worked fast. She determined the listing price for our house based on local research and years of experience. And she works with the best stagers and photographers! Dawn and her team are detail-oriented, trustworthy, and kind. They are a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend selling your home with Dawn Griffin.
Aubrey, Tower Grove South

Dawns team is more than excellent! She was very professional and kept us informed along the way. She was always easy to get ahold of. I would use her again to buy or sell!
Mandy, Tower Grove East

Working with the Dawn Griffin Group was as good as it gets when it comes to buying a house. Our agent went above and beyond to get us our dream house. Couldn’t recommend them more!
Sarah, Tower Grove East

Words cannot describe how thankful my husband and I are that we chose to navigate our first home-buying experience with The Dawn Griffin team. Our realtor, Lance, went above and beyond all expectations to make sure we got the best price on a house that was absolutely perfect for us. They turned what can be a daunting and stressful experience into a walk in the park. We are so grateful!!
Kelley and Chris, Northampton

Dawn is amazing… not sure what else to say! When I can to her on a whim a couple of years ago, I was undecided about what I wanted to do and where I wanted live. She set up a site that would hit all available homes that were within my very “particular” guidelines. This went on for months without even a nudge from her, just a check in. One night a home popped up that I just had to see and I sent her a message. We were able to see it the next day and I wanted to make an offer on the spot. The house was old and broken, but I could see the beauty and she was right along with me. She helped negotiate the best price and worked with me to get in contact with a lender who helped me with a 203k loan. That enabled me to take this little broken house and make it into a sweet, warm, wonderful home. I can’t thank Dawn and her team enough!!! Trust her with your dreams.
Traci M., University City

We were considering selling over the course of several years and Dawn was there every step of the way to advise us on the best course of action through a tough sellers’ market. When the time came to sell, Dawn and her team of experts took amazing care of us, from the creative approach they took to showing off our home to potential buyers and savvy social media postings to making sure every detail of the preparations leading up to the sale went smoothly. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone other than the Dawn Griffin team in St. Louis. Simply put, they are the absolute BEST.
Jess D., Carondelet

Dawn was amazing to work with, and continues to be terrific even after the home buying process ended. She made sure to explain everything to me every step of the way, as this was my first home buying experience. She was always available for questions and her team was wonderful as well. She went above and beyond and I feel so lucky to have found her through a recommendation. If I ever sell my current home I will certainly be using her as my realtor for both that sale, and the purchase of any future homes. I recommend her to everyone!
Caitlyn J., Tower Grove

I’ve worked with Dawn twice and have found her to be conscientious, dedicated, hard working, and effective. The process of selling a house can be challenging, even nerve racking, and an agent has the power to make things better or worse. Dawn makes things better. She has the ability to tease out the core of a problem and work to find the most effective solution. I would happily work with her again someday.
Debbie S.

We were new to St. Louis and decided to buy a home long distance before moving to the city. Dawn’s knowledge of the city, her patience with our decision making, and her savvy in negotiating made what could have been an anxiety-filled process much easier and even fun. We love our new house and we would never have found it, let alone been able to negotiate the sale in order to buy it, without Dawn’s help. We highly recommend her!
Rachel S., Webster Groves

We have known Dawn for almost 8 years and she has helped us buy and sell two homes. She is the absolute best. She is available, knowledgeable, creative and hard-working. She and her team will make sure you are 100% taken care of through the entire process. There is no one else who knows the market like Dawn. She has bought, sold, renovated, or rehabbed almost everywhere in St. Louis, so she knows exactly what she’s talking about. I recommend Dawn to any and everyone I know, time and time again.
Jackie B., Webster Groves

We are extremely satisfied with Dawn and her team. We would HIGHLY recommend her and her team to anyone selling their house. We sold our house in a day at a price higher than expected. These are the things we liked:

  • Dawn was very knowledgeable
  • She listened well
  • She had great suggestions
  • She and her team put a great plan in place to get our house ready to sell
  • The plan was cookbook…easy to understand and follow
  • She and her team were very supportive and responsive through every step of the way
  • Dawn and all of her team are really nice people and good to work with

Dave & Sara, Tower Grove Heights

My wife and I spoke with a couple other realtors in St. Louis before choosing Dawn Griffin. We have no regrets at all. Dawn and her entire team were very helpful throughout the whole process. We had a full price offer within a month and a very smooth close that followed about a month later. As first time sellers, she walked us through every step. She and her team were very accommodating. Since my wife and I moved halfway across the country essentially the day our house hit the market, the Dawn Griffin Group handled a myriad of issues that arose back in St. Louis that otherwise could have been quite detrimental to the sale of our house.
Ian & Kate, Skinker-DeBaliviere

Dawn & her team helped me get a near full-price offer in under 10 days! Her process and advice were invaluable, especially since I relocated from the St Louis area before the sale. Excellent communication throughout the transaction and I highly recommend Dawn.
Andy, Tower Grove

We have purchased two of our homes from Dawn. She really takes time to listen to you and your needs. We never felt pressured or as though she didn’t have time for us. Dawn went the extra mile for us on a number of occasions including: finding a precious toy that my child had left in a spare room in a house that we viewed, reading to my kids when we showed a house to my parents, and advising us so that our house was ready in time to sell. We highly recommend Dawn to any prospective buyers or sellers.
Andrew & Laura, Tower Grove East

Working with Dawn to find and buy our first home was an amazing experience and we enthusiastically recommend her team. They worked tirelessly for us from start to finish. They both really listened and asked us thoughtful questions to understand what we were looking for in a home and they were incredibly helpful and engaged during the shopping phase of the process, providing us with great suggestions and insights on things to consider when visiting properties, making an offer, and negotiating a final contract. At all times, we felt like we had their support and attention. Start to finish, there was a perfect blend of deep expertise and awesome communication skills. We are thrilled with our home purchase and don’t expect to move anytime soon; when we do, Dawn and Judy will be the first people we call!
Martin & Carolyn, Webster Groves

I cannot stress how helpful and knowledgeable Dawn Griffin is when it comes to buying and selling a home. She went ABOVE and BEYOND my expectations, and I truly am so appreciative of all her hard work! She was consistently there for me when I had questions about things, listened to any of my concerns and provided helpful information and reputable contacts. And she did so, all in such a timely fashion, it made my life easier.
Emily, Southampton

Dawn helped us sell our home quickly. Her team was amazing, especially with staging advice to sell our home for top dollar. There was a lot of work to do to get ready, we lived there for 10 years and had to thin out a lot things to make it happen. The process was easy and smooth. Anyone selling or buying a home should consider using Dawn and her team to help them.
Sean, Historic Shaw

I know she had many listings but she made us feel like we were her most important client.  It was an uncertain market when we put the house up for sale but she had a good feel for what to expect. In addition, on the buyer side, she did more than just take us to showings. She provided us with detailed comps and offered invaluable insight.  We would not hesitate to use her again.
Amy & Brian, Tower Grove South

From the first phone call, we were immediately hooked.  She was positive, inspired, and knew why someone else would want to live in our home. We were given incredibly clear instruction on what information we needed to give her.  From that information, she made amazing presentation materials.  Then, we were under contract in under 30 days from going live on the MLS! I can’t think of another realtor I would ever recommend for St. Louis.
Kat, Webster Groves

Dawn was very attentive and easy to trust from the get go, even though we were all the way across the country and initial communication was via email. She worked very hard within our guidelines and inside our limited time frame.  She communicated exceptionally well and gave us invaluable strategies   to use to help us make our decision on which home to finally make an offer on. The experience would’ve been painful without her! We continue to value her expertise and friendship.
Anne & Derrick, Tower Grove South

Dawn helped us identify what areas of our house we could update to be competitive, guided us through pricing appropriately by comparing our house to what was currently on the market or had sold recently, and ultimately managed to get our house under contract within two weeks on the market! Her skill set and knowledge are invaluable, as is her professionalism and reputation among her peers.
Tracie & Jeff, Maplewood

Dawn did a superlative job getting our home sold in 2013 by (1) supplying critical advice on staging the home to generate interest; (2) meeting with the prospective buyer’s inspector to explain coverage under the city’s sewer lateral program; and (3) resolving the buyer’s inspection notice to complete the transaction. I highly recommend Dawn to anyone who desires this kind of personal service and attention to detail.
Chris & Laura, Kirkwood

We’ve used Dawn for both of our houses and would highly recommend her. She is professional, business savvy, a great listener, and above all understands how to market your house and reach potential buyers.
Kathy, Webster Groves

We had our house on the market with another agency for about 6 months with no offers before selecting Dawn and Circa. Dawn met with us and gave us what I felt was some really honest and much needed feedback on what we needed to do to make our place more appealing. As we worked through these changes, the house became more marketable and we were able to get an offer close to our asking price. I give Dawn a high recommendation.
Mike, North Hampton

I interviewed 4 agents from 4 different agencies. She said she could sell my house for $20K more than the others. And she did! In about a week’s time. I’ve worked with other agents in the past, and Dawn was the most organized and helpful agent I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She has checklists for everything, is always quick to respond, and is always willing to go out of her way to make the process easier on you.
Jordan, Benton Park

Dawn was “in” with us the whole way and seemed focus on finding us the home we needed for our family. I would use her again in a heart beat and recommend her to friends and family. Dawn is smart, professional, and makes the experience comfortable.
Jana & Kris, Des Peres

Dawn was organized, thorough, and patient. She took the time to educate me on the process of purchasing a house and how to evaluate a property’s potential. She really proved her value during the building inspection phase. She recommended great inspectors, helped me understand what to expect, and when it seemed like the seller wasn’t going to live up to their end of the deal, she jumped in and proactively helped the other side get it together.
