Meet the team
I am a local Realtor who really loves what I do! I am a wife and mother of 3 adult children and one in middle school. I can relate to the diverse wants and needs of today’s families. I grew up on a farm here in Casa Grande, the daughter of a doctor and a Realtor. I was a stay at home mom for several years, then went on to own and run Elite Cleaners until I sold the business and began working in the Escrow industry. I worked with Title Security Agency for nearly 7 years which taught valuable knowledge of title, escrow and the real estate purchase transaction process. This experience has helped me guide clients through a smooth and informed transaction from start to finish. I have extensive knowledge in specialized property research and give all clients the best possible care, which everyone, no matter the size of the transaction deserves. Integrity, loyalty and honesty are all very important to me, as well as good communication by responding to emails and phone calls in a timely manner. Since becoming a Realtor I have received the Coldwell Banker International President’s Elite, International President’s Circle and International Diamond Society awards, which puts me in the top 5% worldwide for transactions in one year. In 2021 I was in the top 1.8% by transactions of all Realtors in Arizona. Referrals and past clients returning are the biggest compliments to me. I love spending time with my family and working in my yard, where I can be found most evenings. I love gardening and yard work. Reading is what I do in down time, but I also enjoys working on dirt bikes with my husband and trail riding in our UTV with friends; as well as hands on projects anytime I have time available.
As a proud Casa Grande native, I have a vast and intimate knowledge of the area and its future. The Greater Casa Grande Valley is a thriving area of growth and change! I am the daughter of a cotton farmer/cattle rancher/real estate broker (Foxtail Realty) from whom I learned that a job worth doing is worth doing well. Real estate has afforded me numerous opportunities to serve the public.
My experience ranges from representing sellers and buyers in residential resale, new home construction, land, and commercial sales. I work to discover the needs of my clients and then help them meet those needs. I offer sellers premium services that include high-end photography, staging consultation, and pricing strategies.
When working with home buyers, whether for their first home, vacation retreat, investment property or retirement, I focus on my client’s wants and needs before searching for the home with the best value and quality to fit those needs.
Providing exceptional service and attention to detail beyond the standard level is my goal…for all my clients. In my professional career, I have worked diligently to establish a reputation as an effective, discrete negotiator.
I started in the Real Estate field in Casa Grande in 2011 and worked as a receptionist and processing the paperwork for REO and HUD listings. I decided to obtain my license in 2012 and after my first sale, I was hooked.
I enjoy working with people and I am caring and passionate about the needs and goals of my clients. I do my best to bring peace of mind to my buyers by building a relationship with them and supporting them through the process of purchasing a home, whether it be their first or their fifth.
I know that purchasing a home is not only a big investment, but I want my clients to know that they purchased the right home and at the price they can afford. “It’s not always about the sale, it’s whether my clients are happy and feel good about their purchase or the sale of their home”
Thanks to my exceptionally loyal clientele, personal referrals, and repeat business as they have formed a strong foundation to my Real Estate career. In 2015, I earned the “Top Buyer closing Agent” on my team.
I love to spend time with family and friends and traveling. I love the ocean, fishing, kayaking and time in the mountains as much as time permits.
Please contact me anytime without obligation. I am ready to go to work for you today!
Dawn M. Zimbelman
A transplant from New Jersey, I’ve lived in Casa Grande since the late 1970’s, having been drawn in by the small, hometown feel, and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. This is where I met my husband John and we raised our children.
We have always been dog lovers and currently have two Weimaraner’s keeping our household entertained and full of love. I try my best to contribute financially and physically to local animal shelters and groups in need of assistance. I love to travel with my husband and pets in our motorhome, take short vacations or cruises or spend time with our children and grandchildren.
Before choosing to begin my real estate career, I worked for 20 years for the President and CEO of The Mahoney Group, the largest insurance and real estate agency in Arizona at that particular time.
My second career began with a small local real estate company. I am now a REALTOR ® with Platinum Living Realty, a company that has my same values of honesty and integrity, constantly improving services to exceed my clients’ expecta-
tions, and always pursuing personal and team growth to reach our goals.
I love spending time with buyers! It’s so fun to help them decide what they want in a home and a lifestyle, but I also enjoy assisting sellers wanting to downsize once their children move on with their lives, upsizing because of life’s circumstances or thosewho are just ready for a change. There is never a dull moment in real estate! Meeting new people every day, working with Realtors you know and respect, and taking classes to stay current in this ever-changing market keeps me busy being the best agent I can be.
