“My husband and I just sold our home in Clayton with Dorcas as our agent. This was our 3rd transaction with Dorcas-2 home sales and 1 purchase. Once again Dorcas did a great job-she met and exceeded all of our expectations.
Right from the beginning Dorcas was extremely helpful with helping us get our house ready for sale. She supplied us with contractors(all of whom were great) and gave advice about which home improvements were most important to address. Dorcas, along with her broker Phil Hunt, shared their combined knowledge of the existing market especially as it pertained to our neighborhood and price range. Dorcas put together an effective marketing plan for the sale of our home and was invaluable in evaluating the multiple contracts submitted. She was always available to advise us and answer questions, especially with regards to the closing process and in developing our response to the buyer's home inspection.
We have an effective real estate partner and genuine friend in Dorcas.
My husband and I will be glad to be a reference and would welcome phone calls.”

“Professionalism- Appearance, communication style, materials; concisely laid out her experience, the process and expectations; emphasis on data and ongoing communications with her clients.
Forthright- Answered all of my questions (not evasive or defensive); gave good examples.
Enthusiasm- Seemed genuinely excited about our house and getting the listing.”
“As you are aware, I am just weeks away from closing on the purchase of my new home and the sale of my current home. Your agent, Dorcas Dunlop, has assisted me with both of these transactions. I initially called Dorcas to help me with the purchase of my new home and had informed her at the time that it was my intention to sell my home on my own. A good friend of mine, after seeing Dorcas in action on the purchase transaction, convinced me that I needed to hire her to sell my home. I am ever so glad that she did.
I am convinced that I could not have sold my home in the time frame (12 days) or for the price that I did without Dorcas as my agent. She initially provided guidance in preparing my home for sale. I have watched my share of HGTV and thought I had my home ready sale. Her buyers and she also provided me great contacts to quickly address the items that needed to improved.
The scope of the marketing campaign was instrumental in providing a pool of potential buyers that I could not have found without her marketing program. Thirty groups attended the initial open house-this level of interest helped prospective buyers to focus on my home sooner than later due to the buying competition generated. It also kept the selling price higher than it would have been without this initial level of interest.
I did not fully appreciate how much was involved after negotiating the contract. Dorcas has helped me through the building inspection negotiations which are considerably more involved than I had remembered from previous experiences. Her contractor contacts have been most responsive and price sensitive.
It now seems foolhardy that I would have tried to sell my home by owner to save the brokerage fees-I believe that having Dorcas for my agent was a wise business decision.”
“I have bought 7 and sold 7 homes over the years. Dorcas was amazing. She was by far the most genuine, capable and organized Realtor I have ever worked with. She was calm & knowledgeable! Once Dorcas listed my home, it sold within 3 days of being on the market. There were many stressful times during the process, and Dorcas handled it all like the pro she is. Dorcas is far and away the best Realtor I have ever used to either buy or sell a home. She was always reassuring that things would work out and they did! I honestly can't think of anything that would improve the service that Dorcas provided. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. Dorcas is AMAZING!”
“Just wanted to send you a personal note to say, Thank you for all you have done for me to make my transition from Texas to Missouri such a pleasurable one.
It was fun and engaging and I will always remember your patience, and constant concern to make sure that all my needs were met, in finding and buying a new home. It touched me deeply when you told me you just wanted to make sure that I was happy with everything.
I couldn't help but laugh the other day when you asked if I had buyer's remorse. (Smile) Not for one moment have I felt that I made a bad decision in buying my house. You were 'Johnny on the Spot' on that one and if you had not encouraged me to go look at it only hours after it came on the market, I would still be looking.
I love the water colorpainting of my home. So very thoughtful of you. I will think of all the fun we had finding the house every time I look at it. It is such a pleasure to meet a new friend!”
“This was my first purchase. Dorcas was great! She went above and beyond!!”
“Dorcas provided exceptional service. She puts her client first and does exactly what she would do if she were the buyer or the seller. I trust her judgement! I want to keep Dorcas on my team FOREVER!!”
“The monogrammed sweater, the painting of both houses, the fact that you were willing to haul trash from our old house, all the contractors, the magic you worked to get our house sold and closed, it's all too much to list, but I tried. Thank you for EVERYTHING!!”
