What was important to us was having someone who we felt was looking out for our best interests. We felt she’d be honest with us and push back when needed. We liked her approach — she came armed with hard data, which helped us set realistic parameters that would allow us to reach our goals. Her connections saved us time. Fiona went above and beyond, exceeding our expectations. We absolutely achieved our real estate goals.
Fiona took the time to build a relationship, she was there to help us through every step of the way even with things like home staging and vendor selections. She helped us to a great area and a wonderful home. Fiona has been in 90% of the homes in Rye, and her knowledge about the local market was a huge advantage. She’s a great negotiator. I highly recommend working with Fiona.
We interviewed a lot of realtors but Fiona was the best fit for us. She had a great track record in terms of sale prices. She was professional.

She’s personable. It was like having a family member give you good advice. We never would have gotten the price we wanted if not for Fiona.
When you have lived in a house for a long time, you no longer have a critical eye. Fiona provided us with a four-page list of how to prepare our home. We trusted and followed her recommendations and when we put it on the market, we had three bids in the first week. What’s great about working with Fiona? She is a pro. I don’t know any other brokers who are that hands-on.
Fiona gives you an accurate lay-of-the land. She works with clients in a way that’s comfortable, yet customized, down to her communication style. We had good information from her and were able to make the best decision for us. Fiona feels like your smart best friend who gives you the best advice and gets it done. She’s charming, a straight shooter, and she’s always accessible. The experience with Fiona left us with a good feeling.
I listed my home with Fiona because she approaches real estate with a real business acumen. It’s not a hobby for her — it’s her profession. Fiona is so knowledgeable and confident in her approach. When the offers came in, she guided me through the review of each potential renter’s financials. I knew I had an expert at my side. Things went a lot faster with Fiona at the helm.
Fiona understood our situation and took time to get to know what we were looking for. She guided us through the whole process and had an amazing team to stage the house beautifully! By the time we put the house in the market in October, it was HGTV-ready. Fiona handled everything. When one offer fell through, she calmly went back to all offers and negotiated a great deal. I highly recommend working with Fiona.

Working with Fiona has been such a positive experience. She’s organized, intuitive, patient and supportive. She provided us with sound advice about purchasing our first home and about the different communities in Westchester. When showing us homes, she always listened to our needs. Fiona also provided an education about the schools in the area and also allowed us to explore all that was available so that we could find the best fit for us. Always done with kindness, practicality and a sense of humor.
Working with Fiona was a pleasure throughout the process. Making the leap from an apartment in Manhattan to a house for the first time was stressful and confusing in many ways, but Fiona made my wife and I feel at ease through every step of the way. She was patient with us and very accessible—providing advice and guidance not just as a realtor but as an advocate for the vision we had for our new life.
When Fiona Dogan first visited our house she instinctively understood its architecture and character and knew where it would find its best niche in the market. She then put all of her energy, talent and extensive resources to work for us. We have come to think of Fiona as “The House Whisperer”. We recommend her as an ultimate professional without hesitation or qualification.
We immediately felt confident in Fiona’s professional and honest approach to real estate. Fiona’s effective guidance and genuine care smoothed the path to purchasing for us. Her international sensitivity and thorough experience were reassuring and particularly helpful for us as first-time buyers in the United States. Her advice extended to helping find reliable, well-priced professionals for our newly purchased home, and sharing local knowledge to make us feel welcome and at home in Rye.
Fiona and her team of stagers, painters, landscapers, and various tradesmen took over the entire process of actually making our home look its best for sale. Fiona was there at every step of the way, overseeing the entire process and making sure that everything was done properly. Her hard work paid off and our house sold in less than 48 hours, with multiple offers and for over the asking price. We could not have wished for better service, and we are very happy that we followed her advice.”
Fiona patiently showed us a wide variety of homes in our price range, from historical homes with loads of charm and character, to new construction options, and many others in-between. When we finally made our decision, she worked with us through each and every step of the process as we moved toward closing on our home. Because of Fiona, our family’s transition into the Rye community has been seamless. We could not have found a better ambassador for this community.
As first-time house buyers, we had myriad questions and worries, but no question was too small for Fiona. She answered every question with her professional expertise and cheerful outlook. Even after purchasing the home, we have loved getting her emails and tips on all the events in the city and joining the newcomers groups. I really feel like I have quickly developed roots in my new town.

A very stressful time was eased by Fiona’s upbeat personality and professionalism. We would definitely recommend Fiona!
She helped us buy our new home and sell our old home all in a matter of a few months. She was very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and patient. In both situations we felt she did more than the average agent would have done — she cared for our our dog during showings! We would strongly recommend Fiona Dogan as a great agent to work with.
