Her crisp professionalism, proven success, endless creativity and contagious enthusiasm makes Dawn Tollus the best in the business.  Dawn is an Award Winning, Top Producing Realtor and has over $120 million in sales volume!  Dawn works hand in hand with her clients, close friends and countless referrals to position their home for maximum exposure in the marketplace and she’s eager to offer you and your family her focused attention, dedication and service!  After all, you only need one Realtor by your side – Dawn Tollus.  It’s that simple because she’s THAT good.

Dawn Tollus thrives on partnerships!  “It’s such a joy to truly partner with my clients.  I know how stressful it can be to relocate, house hunt, and get your affairs in your order to make a big change like selling and buying a home, so I do my very best to make the process as fun and rewarding as possible.  I constantly remind my clients that I’m right by their side each step of the way.” 

While you’re packing, cleaning and getting ready to sell your home or move out of your rental property, Dawn will be prequalifying listings on your behalf and offering you additional details on homes she’s thinks could be a good fit for you.  She doesn’t waste your time or hers, so you’ll both be working hard as a TEAM to get your out of one location and into your next home.

When Dawn isn’t out and about showing homes to families and professionals that are relocating to the Northern Va/DC Metro area, you’ll see her throwing the football with her young boys, walking her Golden Retriever (Bentley), visiting wineries across Loudoun County and of course, enjoying time with her close friends and neighbors.  “Because we work so closely and talk so much during the sales process, my clients and I often become good friends, too.  It’s very rewarding to help them take the brave steps to sell their home so they can start fresh again.  It’s an added privilege to help them discover that special home they’ve always wanted.”

“We had such great success with Dawn on our previous 5 property sales that it was a no-brainer to use her again. Dawn did an exceptional job in leading us to this property and providing a strong negotiating position. Her knowledge and her relationship with the selling agent was one of reasons we were successful in being selected, as multiple offers were on the table. As in the past Dawn was on top of everything. She always responded promptly to our texts/email and provided us with information and guidance each step of the way Excellent, top notch!!”
Bruce Tatnell, Ashburn VA (Buyer)
“Have used Dawn before and she is amazing - very helpful, quick and really knows her business! Would never use anyone but her, she is amazing!”
Jo Blackburn, Ashburn (Buyer)
“Dawn's pro-activity and attention to detail has made both of my purchases in the last three years smooth and seamless even under difficult circumstances and tight timelines. I would and do recommend her to any and all that I speak with about the topic and will secure her services at every turn.”
Will, Ashburn, VA (Buyer)
“Dawn and her team are exceptional! Our house was literally on the market for one day! She has thorough and relevant knowledge of the market and her marketing plan worked flawlessly. She also has an incredible network of complementary providers (staging consultants, contractors, etc.) that made the entire transaction seamless and effortless. Everything about the entire transaction was WAY above our expectations! Dawn and her team were fantastic and they kept us updated through out the process. Dawn and her team are one of THE best in the area. We would highly recommend her.”
Stephen & Suha Zehl, Ashburn, VA (Seller)
“Dawn was amazing from the start. Exceptional service. This was the best experience ever. Dawn gives amazing customer service and truly a master of her craft. Very happy with service. This was a lightning fast, superior experience. Unparalleled professionalism. ”
Geoff L, Ashburn, VA (Seller)
“Dawn was amazing to work with in every aspect. She is our agent for the rest of our life!”
Jasmeen Pantleay and Jason Miller- Aldie, VA (Buyer)
“Dawn was great. Very knowledgeable every step of the way. Always accessible and willing to go the extra mile to make the sale of our home a success. Her marketing strategy was spot on as we achieved a contract before the home went on the MLS. What was also impressive was her contingency plans in case our initial contract fell through. She continued to spend time, cost and efforts to prepare to put the home on the MLS even though we had a offer/contract.”
Bruce Tatnell, Ashburn (Seller)
“Dawn Tollus is on top of her game. From initial contact throughout the selling process Dawn was there for me. I've bought and sold numerous homes over the years and Dawn out shines them all! ”
Kim Robinson, Leesburg VA (Seller)
“What can we say about Dawn? She goes above and beyond for her clients, and we've been blessed to call her a friend for the past 8 years. She's more like family at this point! We couldn't ask for anyone better to help us chase our dream of building a custom home. Dawn is thorough, professional, patient, and knows her stuff! There's no question, Dawn is our Realtor for life!”
Kyle and Erin Brown, Ashburn, VA (soon to be Leesburg!) (Buyer)
“I highly recommend Dawn Tollus to all my friends and acquaintances as they to deserve the very best. ”
David H Dingman moved to Waco, Tx (Seller)
“Dawn is very personable and is a professional. A pleasure to work with and kept us informed of all transactions throughout the process.”
Siu and Joe, Broadlands, VA (Seller)
“Dawn Tollus was an amazing source of information and support throughout this process. And it was a FAST process - 13 days from Ratified Contract to Closing! I trusted every decision and piece of advice she offered; she never steered me wrong. I refer anyone and everyone to Dawn and Century 21 Redwood Realty because Dawn knows this area and knows her stuff!”
Felicia Pickering, Leesburg VA (Buyer)
“We chose to work with Dawn Tollus to sell our home of 15+ years because of my previous experience working with her. She demonstrates a strong work ethic, is straight forward and professional. The amount of care Dawn takes to get a property ready for market - including the beautiful photos and videos - sets her apart from the pack. Our house sold for just under list price in just a few days even with pushing the sales price based on other comparable properties. Dawn is an experienced negotiator and was proactive throughout the sales process. As a previous realtor I know that getting a property under contract to closing can often be a challenge, and when closing comes and it was an easy experience, it's because the realtor is advocating for you in the background. Dawn was our advocate and we would recommend her to anyone selling their home!”
Alan & Vicki Salton, Ashburn, VA (Seller)
“Dawn Tollus was fantastic to work worth. She was very patient and professional. Her advice was excellent and always in our best interest. I will definitely recommend Dawn to everyone!”
Tom Feely, Ashburn (Buyer)
“Dawn is simply the best realtor we've ever had, and we've had several over the years. She's outstanding in every area. Having been through this process several other times with other realtors and not having worked with Dawn before, I was hoping for the best but not truly expecting to be satisfied in all aspects of the process. However, Dawn simply blew us away. The end-to-end experience was far better than I had hoped for.”
Dan F, Ashburn (Buyer)
“Dawn did a fantastic job on helping me sell my house, as well as purchasing a new one. She was always easily accessible, and really took pride in every aspect of her job. I would 100% recommend Dawn to any other person to use. She was the best!!”
Kristy Bergmann (Buyer)
“Dawn is the best! She is a true professional and goes the extra mile for her clients! We will never use another agent for our real estate needs and recommend her to everyone we come across looking for an agent. Dawn is an amazing Realtor, but more than that, an amazing person! We are blessed to know her! ”
Kyle Brown, Ashburn (Seller)
“I completely trusted Dawn. She's knowledgeable, confident and very helpful! We had an extremely quick real estate process, and Dawn managed to help us look at homes with the help of McKay while she was away on a business trip. She connected us with a great mortgage company, Atlantic Coast, as well. ”
Patti Hidalgo, Ashburn (Buyer)
“I cannot recommend Dawn highly enough. I had a very tight deadline for wanting to buy a home, and I had high expectations of what I wanted and how much I wanted to pay. Dawn exceeded those expectations on every level, she was always available to discuss any concerns I had, and she helped me not settle for less than what I asked for. Buying a home is a long and tedious process, Dawn definitely went above and beyond to make everything be as smooth and incident-free as possible. ”
Nicole M., Virginia (Buyer)
“Dawn Tollus was amazing!!! As a first time home buyer, she answered my thousands of questions and then answered them again when I was freaking out about the process. I will definitely use her again if I'm ever to sell or buy property.”
Jason Funderburk - Leesburg, Va (Buyer)
“Dawn was fantastic!! She was very patient, as it took longer than expected to get my house ready. She called back immediately when I called her with questions.. She even helped me out with my dogs when I ceased at work and could not be there to get them out of the house. Dawn Tollus was a pleasure to deal with and I would use her again”
Kristy Bergmann, Ashburn, Va. (Seller)
“Dawn is a true professional even under circumstances beyond her control ”
al visco, ashburn (Buyer)
“Dawn is very professional and very skilled. Both political parties could learn a thing or two from her.”
Harry Hutchison, Leesburg, Va (Seller)
“We have loved working with Dawn as a part of our buying and selling process. She is accountable and knowledgeable and always responsive. She was incredibly easy to work with and took care of the process from start to finish. We have previously referred Dawn to a number of our family and friends and will continue to do so into the future. We started this process with only looking at one realtor and I can't imagine having used anyone else!”
Caroline Whittington- Ashburn, VA (Buyer)
“I am a licensed broker, have been in the commercial real estate industry my entire career and my father was a home builder. Based on my experience with Dawn Tollus, I now have a whole new level of respect and appreciation for the value of excellent customer service and residential expertise. She is patient, has expert experience and is an advocate for her client. Although I negotiate "real estate deals" on a daily basis, I would not sell or buy a house in Loudoun County without Dawn Tollus.”
Casey Veatch (Buyer)
