We listed our cottage property to Dawn Mashinter of Chestnut Park Realty and found her outstanding. before choosing Dawn we researched various agents and decided on Dawn based on her sales stats. We found her to be dedicated, hardworking and delightful to work with, her hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a cottage really paid off. Our cottage had a contract 4 days after Dawn put it on MLS and closed in 30 days of the listing. We would recommend Dawn Mashinter and her team to everyone we know. She is a true professional.

Hi Dawn. Sorry to be so long getting back to you. I replied last week but again it doesn’t seem to send properly from my tablet. Just wanted to tell you how much we appreciated the great job you did on selling our property. Even though it was a very stressful time for you, the sale went smoothly and professionally. We are very happy with the outcome and would recommend you to anyone. We have moved our trailer to MBC on Mary Lake and that is working out well. Hope your summer is good and not too overwhelming. At least today is hot and so far no rain. Thank you again, Dawn, for everything. It was wonderful! Regards

Hi Dawn. Now that my cottage is sold I’d like to take a moment to thank you for the great service you gave me. I had consulted a number of other real estate agents before choosing you to handle my sale, and had been dismayed by their superficial approach and lack of local knowledge. When I met you I was pleased with your ability to listed intently, to communicate well, your efficiency, your ethics, your depth of local knowledge and your drive to get things done well. This spring when it was time to sell, I was tired from dealing with three other projects. You, with your experience, saved me endless time and energy by telling me what’s next, who can handle it and when it should happen. Thanks for that too, Dawn.

We didn’t know Dawn Mashinter prior to our first meeting to discuss the sale of our home. From the start, she was very professional, thorough and informative in all aspects pertaining to the presentation of our property. Dawn consulted with us on a regular basis and kept us well informed. She offers a wonderful personality too! We’ve bought and sold many properties throughout the years and we highly recommend Dawn to sell your home or cottage!

I would be remiss if I did not thank you for all of your efforts in selling my home in 2015. Your sound advice, knowledge of the market and comprehensive marketing of my home were key to selling it quickly & close to the asking price. Your quick response in addressing matters or questions as they arose through out the process was also instrumental. Again Dawn, many thanks.

All the best,

My wife and I were trying to sell her Mother's home in the summer of 2013, we hhad it listed for quite awhile without much luck. We had to make a decision on our real estate broker who we believed was not doing a very good job for us. A friend of ours suggested we try Dawn Mashinter. Upon meeting her, we could immediately see she had drive and motivation. Once we got Dawn's sign up on the lawn, it was not very long after that we got a firm offer on the house which we accepted! Since then Dawn found a home for us which she thought suited our wants and needs, we loved it! So we put a conditional offer on it, the condition being was for us to sell our home. Dawn got it done! Even with a 3 week closing period! We highly recommend Dawn Mashinter, her enthusiasm and professionalism is second to none!

Her professional, personable manner, her sound knowledge and timely responses contributed greatly to the quick sale of my property.I found her to be knowledgeable about the area, property values and information on transactions. She took initiative, was reliable and conscientious and went the extra mile to get the job done. I would highly recommend Dawn to potential vendors and purchasers. Many thanks Dawn.

Hey Dawn,

We could not have found a more professional and personable real estate agent than Dawn Mashinter to entrust our dreams of buying a cottage and investing our money. Dawn earned our confidence and trust by consistently demonstrating admirable professional and personal qualities. She was concerned and focused on our desires and needs, detailed oriented, had exceptional follow up, was incredibly hard working - but most importantly guided us to through the complicated real estate purchase process full of pitfalls to the successful close of the deal. Dawn was not only competent and efficient in her work but she also demonstrated exceptional communication and people skills - all while keeping a confident, optimistic outlook - and a great sense of humor. Dawn is that rare individual who is able to deal with all kinds of people and problems. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dawn to family and friends - in fact we have - with complete confidence and trust. Thank you Dawn for making OUR dreams of cottage ownership come true.
