Dawn Andalft-Newman

Resort & Second-Home Specialist

After running a number of successful businesses after graduating from Northeastern University, I settled down with my husband Rich, a local veterinarian, and focused on our growing family of 9 kids – 6 of whom are now adults and 3 who are at home. I love spending time with my children, grandchildren and family in general. It is my favorite place to be, hence why I am known for being a great cook – I get plenty of practice and I enjoy every minute of it! However, it was time for me to do something personally satisfying and fulfilling outside my loving family – it was time to go back to work.

My real estate career began with bookkeeping for our company. This soon led to property management for our clients’ investment properties. Not too long after that I realized that I found hands-on work with people even more appealing. Consequently, I really fell in love with real estate sales, the challenge of the entire sales process, and most especially – helping my clients. Helping families find the right home is a true passion for me. I am told, all the time, that I go over and above what others do, and to be honest, I really don’t know any other way.

My real estate sales career has taken off very quickly. In the last 3 years that I’ve been selling real estate, I am now landing in the top 4% of sales for realtors on the entire Cape. There is almost nothing I wouldn’t do for my clients (unless illegal, of course).

I would love to chat with you about how I can help you find your perfect place or investment property. I have a great deal of knowledge and experience, and love sharing it. Whether you’re ready to start looking today or in the thinking stages, let’s chat about your possibilities.

What My clients are saying

  • Super helpful, punctual, and professional. Together was on the house we like and Dawn showed us a number of houses that represented our interests and wishes. And she helped us find good resources to fix the house.

  • Dawn goes beyond what the other reality companies don’t do for you.
    The best communication you could ever get every little step of your sale. You will never be more satisfied with any other realtor. Dawn goes above and beyond what you could ever expect. I couldn’t be happier with how professional and the security you will feel with Dawn.

  • Dawn has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I first met her about three years ago when my wife and I first started looking for property in Cape Cod Massachusetts . She took the time to understand what we were looking for and our dream. She was dedicated and always available when we had a question or request. Ultimately she found a piece of property in the town we desired. Building lots are rare in the Cape, especially in the town we were hoping to build our home. When the right property came on the market, Dawn promptly reached out to us. She walked the property and took videos to share with us. During the closing process she recommended a local attorney and potential builder that she had good work experiences with. Dawn is much more than an agent, she became our advocate and a trusted friend.

  • Knows the Cape Cod market. Dawn is an excellent realtor, she knows the market and is very knowledgeable. At every crossroad she was prepared and responded expertly and quickly. There were times when I felt doubtful, but she always stayed positive and confident in the process.

  • Working with Dawn was a delight and a pleasure. I was a first time home buyer riddled with anxiety and nerves. She was able to help guide me through each step of the process. She was easy to get in touch with both via in person and via the phone. She also was able to assist in finding contacts of various people to help me update my home, even once the closing was done.

  • In July, after 26 years of living in Florida, I moved back home to Cape Cod. I had started to look for homes long before I moved, and my best friend put me in touch with Dawn. I am forever grateful to Dawn, she went above and beyond from the beginning to the end and because of her, I am in my dream home. She is very passionate, knowledgeable and caring about what she does and added personal touches along the way like bringing me fresh Basil from her garden. Dawn is the epitome of what it means to provide great, consistent customer service with a smile. Thank you, Dawn.

    Wendy O.

    Buyer, Single Family Home in South Yarmouth
  • Dawn went above and beyond to help us sell our beloved home in Plymouth. Boy! Did we need some hand holding! But she got us through it. If you want a real estate agent who keeps you on track all the way to the close plus throws in a bit of “home selling therapy” to help you survive it, look no further than Dawn!

    Lili & Gordon C.

    Seller, Single-family Home with In-Law Suite in Plymouth
  • Working with Dawn was a fabulous experience. She guided us through the whole process and provided guidance and knowledge of the area. Dawn was communicative and involved. She was a pleasure to do business with and will always be our realtor.

    Gonzalo & Maria P.

    Buyers, Condominium in Dennis
  • Dawn was beyond amazing. She went above and beyond any expectations we had. She helped us through all the ups and downs in finding the perfect house for us in this crazy market! I highly recommend her! She is the best!!

    Kaitlyn B.

    Buyer, Single Family Home in Mashpee
  • Looking for a home in this market was not easy, but we were lucky to meet and work with an agent as knowledgeable and passionate as Dawn. She made the home buying process smooth and we appreciated her patience and guidance as we searched for the right home. She was responsive and always willing to chat in person or over the phone to discuss our options and answer any questions we had. She felt more like a friend than a realtor and we couldn’t have found our dream home without her! Thanks Dawn!!

    Brie & Tim M.

    Buyers, Single Family Home in Centerville
  • Dawn made this experience a breeze!! We went over the basics of what we want vs need. The areas we were flexible and the areas we were not. She listened to us completely and found the best matches for us to tour. The home we ended up purchasing was one I hadn’t even considered. But she knew better! Once we pulled up to this house we loved it! We were able to view it on short notice thanks to Dawn’s connections, and made an offer on the spot! Dawn was there every step of the way. Finding, negotiating, and closing went by in a flash thanks to her! She was kind, knowledgeable, and completely devoted. Though I know we weren’t her only buyers, she made us feel like we were her number one priority!

    John & Shelly E.

    Buyers, Single Family Home in Hyannis
  • Dawn helped us find a new home and did so with great energy, support and empathy while knowing what was important to us and fighting for those things. Since we live out of state, we relied on Dawn to help find properties and when she did, advise us as to the what to do about each of them and if we wanted to go forward what to negotiate in order to create a fair deal. Once the deal was agreed, Dawn was instrumental in keeping things moving, working through details and some issues that came up. In all cases, Dawn was able to advise us well, work with the seller and ultimately work through everything. With all of us in different locations (buyers and sellers), it was no easy feat. Dawn was able to keep us up to date, push the right people and land the closing. We could not have found the property we bought or closed when we did without Dawn’s help. She is the consummate professional, always available, even keeled and able to work through all sorts of challenges while understanding us and the sellers. I highly recommend Dawn for anyone looking to buy or sell property in the South Shore area!

    Andrew & Jenny T.

    Buyers, Single Family Home in South Dennis
  • Dawn is top notch. She was very helpful in every aspect of the buying process from the search to the closing. Her experience was key in the negotiation process and made the whole experience very easy. I would absolutely work with Dawn again in the future. Highly recommend!

    Dan C.

    Buyer, Condominium in Dennis Port
  • Dawn is a very helpful and knowledgeable realtor. She was great through the entire process of buying my home on cape cod. A dream come true for me. Highly recommend!

    Pattie H.

    Buyer, Investment Property in West Dennis
  • Dawn was a complete miracle worker she was amazing to work with. Buying our first home on the cape seemed like a very challenging task at first as soon as we met Dawn things started to get a lot more easier, she has a lot of great relationships in the community and knows someone for every step of the way in the home buying process. Her recommendations never failed us and the network of people she has built with her years of experience and knowledge are very helpful. We were completely overwhelmed before working with Dawn, she was so accommodating, she worked with our schedules and set up all the necessary meetings in order for us to purchase the home. I loved how respectful and kind she was she never made us feel like our opinions weren’t valid. Overall just a great human being to work with super down to earth and always willing to help with anything can’t recommend her enough.

    Gabriel S.

    Marco B.

    Buyer, Single Family Home on Craigville Beach in Centerville
  • Dawn was fantastic throughout our buying process, very competent and professional. She was helpful in so many ways, from consistently sending potential property matches, to advising us on presenting an offer, researching and finding info for us on special permitting needed and providing lots of town info. I would not hesitate to work with Dawn again or recommend her services.

    Donna F.

    Buyer, Single Family Home on Parker’s River, South Yarmouth
  • Working with Dawn was an absolute pleasure. She made the process of finding a house and closing extremely straight forward and seamless. She is always kind and available and extremely knowledgeable and resourceful. If we had to go through this process again we would not hesitate to work together once more.

    Cristina A.

    Buyer, Luxury Home in West Barnstable
  • I couldn’t be happier with Dawn as she went above and beyond for me. I would highly recommend her on the buy or sell side. We trust her so much that she is also managing our property for us.

    Jason G.

    Buyer & Seller, Investment Property in East Dennis
  • Our experience with Dawn was amazing! She was responsive to all our questions and helped us navigate the buying process. She worked hard to accommodate our limited schedule, and get us in to view all the houses we requested, as well as one that she recommended – that we actually purchased! Throughout the sales and closing process, Dawn was a very upbeat, organized, and knowledgeable. She arranged extra inspections and even conducted a virtual walk-through (due to COVID-19 restrictions). More importantly, after the sale Dawn has stayed in touch to make sure everything is as it should be. I highly recommend Dawn’s services for your next real estate transaction!

    Karen C.

    Seller, Single Family Home in South Yarmouth
  • Dawn was simply outstanding. She helped us all through the process and took extra time to attend to our every need. Dawn also kept a positive spirit, which greatly helped us to attain the perfect house for us. She is simply wonderful to help you in your real estate goals.

    Mike P.

    Buyer, Condo at Ocean Edge in Brewster
  • Dawn was with us every step of the way. While not the easiest of clients admittedly, she was thoughtful of the properties she showed us. She was there every moment we reached out to her – even at a moments notice. She was knowledgeable of the different properties, and was able to make us aware of both advantages and disadvantages. Even after the sale, we have been in touch and will no doubt use her services to help us in our future endeavors.

    Mary L. and Christina C.

    Buyers, Investment Property in South Yarmouth
  • I just purchased my first home using Dawn, and she was excellent through the whole experience. She was willing to do anything she could to help us out in any way she could, and she was also excellent at answering any questions we had throughout the process. Also after we purchased the home using Dawn, we had problems after the sale, and she was right there to help us out even though she didn’t have to because her job was technically over, but she was right there to help us out. I would never use anybody else but her again.

    Tom T.

    Buyer, Single Family Home in Centerville
  • Just sending a note about the excellent service I received from Dawn Newman when I bought my house at 21 Harvard Dr., Plymouth last year. I was very happy with Dawn’s help in finding us our dream home. She was so helpful and knowledgeable. She made the entire process of buying my first home much less intimidating and a good experience. Dawn made sure all our questions were answered and anything we needed, she was right there to help. I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling.

    Debra G.

    Buyer & Seller, Single Family Home in Plymouth
  • It was a real pleasure to have Dawn Andalft-Newman as our agent. She has extensive knowledge of the area, is very friendly, is careful with all the details, and is always available to respond to a phone call, text message or email. She is driven and quick in getting into action. We felt completely supported through the whole process.

    She will always be our agent for the Cape and we certainly will recommend Dawn Andalft-Newman to friends and family looking for property on Cape Cod.

    Andrea B.

    Buyer, Single Family Home on Seconsett Island in Mashpee
  • I would like to say that we are extremely pleased with the services provided to us during our purchase of our home in Plymouth MA. From the beginning, we informed Dawn that this was a transitional purchase for my recently widowed mother, and that we would only close on a property that met all the requirements – thus greatly reducing the flexibility in choices she could offer her. Dawn worked diligently providing properties for over a year, as we continued to look for a new home. Often many properties were rejected for what many would consider petty reasons. Dawn never became frustrated or impatient with us, and always provided updates as they came to market.

    In fact, when the property we finally purchased came onto the market, we rejected it at first. It was Dawn’s constant attention to changes in the property’s pricing that brought us back to this location, ultimately allowing us to close on it. Even when my requests were “extraordinary”, Dawn respected my wishes and forwarded my offers to the seller. Again, we couldn’t be more pleased with Dawn, and would highly recommend her to friends and family.

A note from the broker

Dawn is one of a kind; she always goes over and beyond the call of duty and there truly isn’t much she wouldn’t do, as she cares so much about her clients and people in general. She is so enthusiastic! It is refreshing and exhilarating to be around her, as she truly loves what she does, and this shines through in her positive, upbeat attitude. She is so level headed, patient, and caring, and is not phased by much. She has the ability to solve problems and come up with good solutions — which I find to be a rare characteristic. She is such a valued member of the company. It is an honor to work with Dawn.
