Dawne Lagergren, Realtor® specializing in St Petersburg, St Pete Beach and Tampa Bay Real Estate. - Your Area Expert - 31 years in Tampa Bay Real Estate. Member of RE/MAX Hall of Fame.
From nursing to teaching to running a marketing company, I've done each one.All of these professions have helped me develop a deep commitment to the quality of service I provide. Born in London, England, I came to the United States when I was only one year old.I was raised in upstate NY, lived in St. Louis, Missouri for five years and moved to Florida 36 years ago. I received a Bachelor's degree from USF in Tampa where I majored in math and science. For the past 30 years I've worked as a real estate broker in the Tampa Bay area.I'm honored to be ranked in the top 5% of all real estate agents in the United States.Together with my Swedish husband, Jan, we live in northeast St. Petersburg. When I have the time, I enjoy tennis at The Racquet Club of St. Petersburg and also relax by nurturing my many orchids.
There's Power in Knowledge....
My knowledge of the real estate market is comprehensive.This, coupled with my thorough grasp of the financial and legal aspects of real estate, enables me to assist my customers in getting maximum benefits.Whether working with buyers or sellers, I'm usually creative and diligent enough to put and keep even the most complicated transactions together.
I sum up my professional
philosophy in four words:
Because of my long experience in the local marketplace, I have numerous contacts to rely upon for expertise in all aspects of home ownership - repairs, remodeling, legal assistance, maintenance, etc.My motto is to be of service not just during the transaction but for long afterwards.
I have theCertified Residential Specialist designation which has been obtained by less than 5% of all real estate agents.Every CRS is a real estate professional equipped with a special expertise, thanks to advanced study in listing, selling, investment, taxes and more.I also have the International Marketing Specialist designation which indicates additional training in marketing property for and to non-U.S. residents.In addition to these designations I also have obtained the Quality Service Certified (QSC) certification which is held by less than 1% of all agents nationwide.This designation requires the continued delivery
of exceptional customer service satisfaction, as measured by the QSC organization through surveys to all my customers. The most recent designation I've been awarded is that of SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist) which indicates that I've had additional education and experience in working with Seniors.
If you are ready to buy or sell real estate, talk to an agent who stands out from the rest.Let me give you the same high level of service I've shown to all my other customers.I know you will be pleased.
Areas of Expertise
I believe that I'm most knowledgeable about the waterfront homes in this area. That might be because I've always lived on the water. However, my numerous sales have also included non-waterfront homes and condominiums. I have worked with generations within a family which means that needs and wishes have been quite varied. This has forced me to become familiar with a huge variety of price ranges and communities. I've covered Pinellas, Hillsborough, Manatee and Pasco counties, all of which are within a 30 minute drive of downtown St. Petersburg or Tampa.
"I was thoroughly pleased with the great service that Dawne Lagergren provided. From start to finish she made the entire transaction very easy. It was a pleasant change to be treated so well."
Mr. S. MacDonald
"I can't begin to tell you how much we appreciate your work. Finding a Realtor who is calm, efficent and effective is not easy, and we found one in you."
Dr. K. Howze
"I appreciate all your little and not-so-little extras before and especially after the sale. Many thanks."
Mrs. A. Theriault
"It was a pleasure working with a true professional! I hope to do business with you again soon!
Mr. R. Fruits
"One of your agents deserves a 14K gold star for outstanding service far beyond the normal level. I write of Dawne Lagergren, who has most capably handled the business of my purchase of a condominium in St. Petersburg. In helping me through a transaction which seemed to attract more than its share of glitches, she continues to display (for her service has not quit, even though the closing was completed several weeks ago) the highest level of professional, ethical, and moral performance.
Ms. Lagergren will always have my gratitude for a complicated job expertly handled and my highest recommendation to anyone who might ask about agents in the vicinity.
Peter J. Li
"The purpose of this letter is simply to reiterate, once again, how wonderful it was working with Dawne. From the moment, I met her last Thanksgiving, I knew she was the right person to handle my parents' listing. Her professionalism always had a feeling of warmth and kidness mixed in. She was not only prepared in her presentation to us at the time, but she had a number of creative ideas how to approach the sale. Consequently, I felt very comfortable giving her the freedom to do her job. I was equally impressed with her patience and persistence in bringing in the ultimate offer that resulted in the sale. In short, Dawne is one top notch real estate broker. I can't thank her enough for bringing about such a positive result in such a relatively short time.
