John B. Collins recommends Dawn Niehaus


For many years Dawn has been my go to Escrow Officer. She is technically superior, detail oriented, client focused, and has an amazing "bedside" manner that helps buyers and seller through Escrow. She has the ability to manage a broad spectrum of personalities from Type A hard-nosed 1st generation business owners to 80 year old very high net worth individuals. She has always treated my clients with respect and her personal touch. She is best in class. Since 2000, I have owners of commercial real estate buy, sell, or lease more than $1B worth of commercial property. I recommend her every chance I get.
