Fun Questions with Dawn
What’s your favorite aspect of living in Marion County? The friendly people, beautiful rolling landscapes, and unique granddaddy oaks. I also appreciate the area’s shopping, its caring, professional, up-to-date medical community, and its support of the arts. Ocala is also a short drive away from either coast, and has easy access to interstates, which is convenient.
What keeps you passionate about real estate? Participation in continuing education to stay up-to-date on best practices, meeting new people, and getting to know them as we work together to buy and sell, and building knowledge and pride of my community. I like that this area has a variety of different types of properties: horse farms, residential with acreage, family homes, 55-plus communities, golf course communities, etc. Marion County has it all!
What do you do in your spare time? I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, boating, and a being on or near the water, cooking, reading, exercising, and traveling, especially for active vacations that include biking and hiking.
Cats, dogs, or neither? Currently we have a French Bulldog, Eddie, and our daughter’s handsome tuxedo cat, Sox. But I enjoy animals of all kinds.
What is your favorite type of food? Eggs: Versatile, adaptable, and good for you!
