Get to Know Dawn Brenengen

Buy.  Sell.  Invest.  

I've been a real estate broker for twelve years.  My passion is helping people make great personal finance decisions, and a huge financial decision is what kind of real estate to own.  Buying or selling a home is a big task, and my philosophy is to take the time you need and gather all the information you need to make an informed decision and complete the process in the best way possible.  If you are buying or selling a home, call me for free, no obligation information!

I have been a landlord for ten years with homes of my own in the Trailwood Hills and Camden Crossing subdivisions.  I've really enjoyed doing the property management for my own investment properties, so I branched out to help other investors.  So, if you are an investor who needs a GOOD property manager, call ME!  If you are a homeowner who would like to move, and is considering renting their current home instead of selling, call ME!


I have been a real estate broker ever since I started this career.  I began by selling new homes for some of the best custom home builders in the Triangle, and I continued to do this for nine years.  When the market got soft, I considered expanding into property management, and in 2010 I opened my own company.  I have a ton of experience in new construction, helping buyers and sellers in retail transactions, and I also now have a lot of experience in investment properties.  I manage about 60 homes across Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Wake Forest and Rolesville.  I am a member of the Raleigh Association of Realtors and their Property Management Council.

I graduated with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Anthropology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dawn at Trailwood realty has been my agent and property manager for years. I know that with her, I can expect zero hassle from rental properties, and I know that when it's time to buy, she's going to find the very best property for my needs in Raleigh. She's a good friend, and she has a wonderful work ethic. I highly recommend.

Dawn is a brilliant rental agent. Since I live in England, I rely on her a great deal and she has gone out of her way to help me get the condo ready for rental in my absence. Over the three years Dawn has been managing my property, I have not had any gaps between tenancies, everything is in excellent order and she has kept me informed throughout, taking the worry out of having a property in another country. It's great to know that someone you trust is looking after things for you when you can’t be there yourself.

I have used Dawn as a property manager for a rental property, and as a buyer and seller agent. She is incredibly knowledgeable of the housing market in the Triangle, and very easy to work with. For property management, for a fantastic rate I no longer had to worry about maintaining my rental property. She quickly found renters, and offered great advice. As our buyer's agent, she was very patient and in tune with our wants and needs. Dawn found us a great home. As our seller's agent, I took her advice in making updates in my former rental property to prep it for sale. Priced at within her suggestion, I had two full price offers within the first week of showing, and closed within a month. Can't recommend her enough!

We have used Dawn to buy our new home and sell our previous home. She was fantastic with both. She's really helpful, especially with all those things you never would have thought of. She's easy to get in touch with but she has never been pushy. She's a fantastic realtor, I couldn't recommend her more. We have passed her name along to anyone we've known who was looking to buy, sell or rent. We would absolutely use her in the future.

We worked with Dawn and she is very knowledgeable, experienced, and professional in all stages of the selling process. We loved all the work she did for us and how timely her response was no mater the hour. If there were any concerns with the house we were interested in she knew how to solve it and how to do it quickly and efficiently. We could not be happier with our new purchase! I would recommend her to friends, family, and anyone with real estate needs. Thanks for everything!

I love working in the #1 place to live! Raleigh, Cary, Apex and the Triangle area in general are consistently on the top ten lists. We're great for singles, families, jobs, new businesses and more!!
